Sidequest Guide by WeekendRisktaker
====================== Ni no Kuni ============================= ================ Wrath of the White Witch ======================= ==================== Quest List & FAQ =========================== by WeekendRisktaker firstname.lastname@example.org This FAQ was written for the users on the Ni no Kuni board on GameFAQs, many of whom are enjoying this wonderful game without the slightest idea of what all that weird moon-language really means. It is meant to be a stopgap until Ni no Kuni gets its English release, at which time it will probably be overshadowed by something more in-depth and better written. Any translated material found within this FAQ is unofficial, and mostly done to my own quirky standards. Not all translated names will match 100% to their Japanese counterparts, and a few are completely different just because I couldn't make it sound good through straight translation. If you need a specific quest, search for #number of the quest. For the Mirant Quests, search for #M1, #M2, etc. As of right now, this FAQ does not include any DLC material. I also left out the rewards information for the non-hunting quests. I might add it in at a later date. Quests 1 - 40 The Heart Quests In each of these quests, someone is missing a piece of their heart, which was stolen by Jabo. These quests tend to become available in spurts, and almost always after a major plot sequence featuring a particular type of heart (e.g. the King of Goronell and the Enthusiastic Heart). Hearts can be found easily. Certain people throughout the game possess enough of a surplus in one Heart type that it is possible to split a bit off with the spell Heart Piece (ハート ピース）and then share it with the spell Heart Cure (ハートキュア). They show up as glowing dots on the Town Map, so they tend to stand out. I'm using my own names for the Hearts. Some of them are easy to translate into English, others (especially がまんの心) are pretty difficult. やる気の心 Enthusiastic Heart がまんの心 Temperate Heart やさしさの心 Kindly Heart 勇気の心 Courageous Heart 信じる心 Trusting Heart 自信の心 Confident Heart 愛の心 Loving Heart 夢の心 Dreaming Heart #1 なんでも後回し Everything Can Wait...

They appear in each town in the game in turn, often blocking chests or pots with items until they finally leave.

This also concludes the Hearts Quests. The rest of the quests are a little more varied and involved. Some may have prerequisites, while others may have to be done in tandem. Unless specified otherwise, these quests become available as soon as you reach the town where they are located (or the closest town to its location). #41 どこに隠した？ Now Where Did It Go... Location: Goronell A young cat-person has misplaced something. Look for it in a pot in the cul-de-sac on the west side of Goronell's main plaza (where the big statue is). #42 生活に彩りを A Life More Colorful Location: Goronell Go out of town and find two Spring Waters and two Highland Flowers. Both can be won from enemies in the area, but it's easier to gather them from the sparkling spots on the map just east of town. One is by the lake east and north of Goronell, the other is up the slope of the mountain due east of town. #43 痛いの痛いの飛んでいけ Little Boys Lost Location: Goronell A woman's three sons are all missing, and her motherly intuition is telling her they must be hurt. They are. Find them and use the Heal spell to fix their boo-boos so they can go home to mama. Boy 1: go up the stairs near the Quest Shop to the upper area Boy 2: look inside the Equipment Shop Boy 3: find him on the way to the Sage's Tomb (to the right of the castle entrance) #44 森で暮らす人々 The People of the Forests Location: Basiluna Meadows (woods) Talk to the forest guardians in the woods north-east of Goronell. They are having a problem with Bridrills. Five groups of errant Buridrills will now pop up on the map outside of the woods. Defeat all five groups and then talk to the quest-giver. #45 愛情たっぷり弁当 A Boxed Lunch Full of Love Location: Babanacia Deliver a boxed lunch (made with lots of love!) to a man in Moelle Forest. He should show up as a blue dot on the level map. #46 砂漠の暴れん坊 The Desert Bullies Location: Babanacia 10 groups of Kottsuhei (Skulldiers) are running loose in the Nielde Desert. Search and destroy. They're weak against wind attacks, so Maru's Seba is useful here. Talk to the quest-giver when you're done. #47 道草トリオ The Goodfeathers Location: Babanacia A young boy is looking for his three pet pigeons, who have all flown the coop. Unlike other pigeons in town, they won't fly off when you approach. Pigeon 1: With the flock near the Milk Fountain Pigeon 2: With the flock in front of the inn Pigeon 3: Sunning itself in the window of the Item Shop Talk to the pigeons with the Talker spell. Return to the boy once you have found them all. #48 砂漠のオアシスカレー Desert Curry Location: Babanacia Prerequisite: Quest #3, The Master of Spices The curry chef is looking for the best ingredients he can find. Talk to the Spice Master (from Quest #3) You'll need some Turmeric Root and three Kahrai seeds. The Turmeric must be won from Quest #88 (a Hunt Quest), while the three seeds can be found along the route to Mt. Dekarock. If you haven't made it to that point in the story yet, you can't finish this quest just yet. #49 新作水着の材料 The Newest Fashion Location: Bikkini A young fashion designer needs some Colorful Leaves to make new swimwear. To get them, you have to take out three Nattchi (cactus-like guys in the desert) with ice spells. Take the resulting quest items back to the quest-giver. #50 アオガニの楽園 Blue Crab Heaven Location: Bikkini Use the Talker spell to communicate with the blue crab in town. He will ask you to find a friend of his whom he hasn't seen recently. The crab is safe and sound on the Sours Islands, to the east of Bikkini. Find him at the far end of these sandy atolls, talk to him with the Talker spell, and then take his message back to the first crab in Bikkini. #51 相方のハリセン Fans for Fandom Location: Dohton-Mori A fairy in Dohton-Mori wants to help cheer his friend on as he strives to be a good stand-up comedian. For that, he needs some folded-paper fans (harisen) that are a traditional prop for this sort of comedy routine. Take out 3 of the batty enemies (Pigoul) on the fairy island after blinding them first with Sand Throw or Gyro's Smoke Shot, and you will get the necessary items. #52 飛び込んだのは。。。 A Sigh of Relief Location: Dohton-Mori A fairy in Dohton-Mori wants ingredients for some cold remedy. Some backtracking may be necessary. The grocery list includes: よくなり草 (Feelgood Grass): can be found on the ground in Goronell, but can also be won off of Gaurios (lionish sheep) and Sleepies (funny bird-things) in the Goronell area. きれいな湧き水 (Spring Water): from the same gathering spot NE of Goronell シャキールの葉 (Shakeel Leaf): Gyro can steal these from Pigouls (bat-like Imajinn) on the fairy island. It is also possible to find some on the ground in an area a little to the east of Bikkini (on the mainland) Return all of these to the quest-giver for a reward. #53 モエールの危機 A Forest in Jeopardy Location: Moelle Forest Prerequisite: Arrive at Dohton-mori The quest-giver is a fairy who is standing near where the local boss appeared previously. He wants you to defeat the Gangtoshishi (strong, 3rd-tier boar-like enemies) who are rampaging through the forest. There are five of them, accompanied by Tosshishi (the 2nd-tier boar-types). Both Imajinn types are weak against fire. After beating all five groups, return to the fairy to find him about to get thrashed by an even stronger boar, the Bosstoshishi. This is the other 3rd-tier form, and it's strong against fire (but weak against water). Time to save the day! #54 ボーグに咲く花 Flowers for Bolg Location: Bolg Empire A woman just wants her flowers to bloom, but conditions under the Empire's dome just aren't good for it. Use the spell "Mach Growth" (マッハ栽培) on the flowerpot. It won't quite work. Then bring a サンサン (solar disc enemy from the desert) to finish the job properly. #55 新薬開発 Medical Necessity Location: Bolg Empire Prerequisite: Quest #10, "For My Sister" The boy from Quest #10 needs a special mushroom for a medicine to help his sister. You can find it in the forest on the coast to the west of Bolg. It's one of those forests where you can enter and talk to the forest guardian folk. One will trade you the mushroom for a Bunny Cake (バー二ケーキ) which can be stolen from several enemies on the fairy island. #56 やっかいな海賊船 Unpleasant Pirates Location: Bolg Empire Prerequisite: Quest #55 The boy from the previous quests needs one more item for his sis, but pirate ships have been delaying the cargo run from Bikkini. Teleport back to Bikkini, rest up, and take the boat out for a bit of pirate-trawling. There are four ships en route between Bikkini and Bolg. Most are crewed by DeadCrew, but the fourth one should also have a DeadCaptain. #57 飛行艇の修理 Busted Lifeboats Location: Heburuchi's Hideout One of Heburuchi's crewmen is trying to fix a busted part for one of their flying lifeboats, but it's just too beat up. This one needs an expert... Use the Gate spell to go back to Hotroit and get Claude to fix it for you. Return the now-pristine parts to the crewman. #58 空賊のお守り A Sky Pirate's Charm Location: Heburuchi's Hideout One of Heburuchi's crewmen is trying to mend his lucky charm, but he needs Wind-Cutting Feather (風きりばね). If you don't have one already, you can get one from the Birdners in the area around the hideout, or from Sabannyers off-shore. #59 １人でも大丈夫？ Okay Alone? Location: Small cave east of Samura In a little cave on the coast east of Samura there is the ghost of a small girl. Use Spiritalk to communicate with her. She wants to move on, but she's worried that her Imajinn friend won't be able to get by without her. Make sure you have an empty party slot when you talk with her to get a Pyonkichi (3rd-tier Imajinn). Keep it in your active party and return to the girl once it has gained 10 more levels. She'll be happy and will let you keep the Pyonkichi with her blessing. #60 ビッキニのビキニ Bikinis from Bikkini Location: Samura Even though it's absolutely frigid there, one young lady in Samura would really like a stylish bikini. When you go to talk to the fashion lady in Bikkini, you'll find out that the last of those 3 bikinis she made (in Quest #49) was stolen by a seagull not long before. It was flying west... Take the ship to Sangon Island, due west from Bikkini, and find the gull on the promontory of the island. Use Talker to ask him for the bikini. He just wanted it for nesting material, so it's all the same for him. Pass it on to the girl in Samura next time you see her. #61 迷子をさがして Missing Child Alert Location: Samura Prerequisite: Finish the Ice Caves plot event There's a boy lost in the Ice Caves. Talk to the kid at the entrance, then head in. Up in the northwest corner of the cave (should be visible as a blue dot on the map), you will find the boy being menaced by a GigaWater and three Blue Alabbins. They are all weak against fire, so torch 'em. #62 夢で見た花 Dream Flower Location: Reka A girl in Reka Village keeps seeing a beautiful flower in her dreams. It's not like anything she has ever seen before. Shizuku figures that she's getting visions from her soul-double in Ichi no Kuni (Hotroit). Use the Gate spell to go there. Near Oliver's house there will be a little girl and a wilted flower. Use the Turn Back Time spell to restore the flower, talk to the girl to get her permission, then take the flower back to Reka. #63 腰痛の特効薬 My Aching Back! Location: Reka The old man by the Quest Shop is experiencing back problems, and he would like a special medicinal pack from Samura. Talk to a snow man in Samura about it (the Powder Snow Pack), and he'll do it on request if you can get him the ingredients. To get the ingredients, you have to defeat a Gachi-Gachidon (found west of town) with a fire attack. Easiest done by buying a Burning Sword (バーニングソード)in Samura and putting it on a strong attacker. You need 5 of them. #64 グルメなルパカ The L'Paca Gourmet Location: Reka Use Talker to communicate with the l'paca near the front gates. He's heard of a lot of interesting foods, but never had a chance to try any. He wants you to get some regional delicacies for him. Odds are you might have most of these just from random enemy drops. 1 each of: Babanas (Babanacia) Firefly Shrimp (Bikkini) Black Truffle (Bolg) Snow Radish (Samura) Bon appetit! #65 犯人を追え！ Thieftaker Location: Goronell Prerequisite: Finish the "Ashes Fall on Goronell" plot events. A monster has stolen a macguffin from one of Goronell's citizens. You have to follow the footprints on the world map outside the city. They aren't always obvious from one angle, so be sure to rotate the field camera from time to time. Each time you check a set of prints, you'll be given a new direction (generally north or west) to search for new prints. There ARE two false trails, however, so watch out. The true trail leads to the far west end of the kingdom. You will have to use the Bridge Builder spell to open the way across the valley (if you haven't done so already). The real thief is a Majin Igni (weakness: water). #66 理想のモデル The Perfect Model Location: Babanacia Prerequisite: Finish the "Ashes Fall on Babanacia" plot events Babanacia's resident artist (remember him?) is in search of the perfect model. From Moya, head north to Gambul Island. There's a guardian forest on the island. One of the residents there is willing to give modeling a try, and she even fits the idiosyncratic desires of the artist. #67 カレー屋繁盛記 Curry to Go! Location: Babanacia Prerequisite: Finish the "Ashes Fall on Babanacia" plot events The curry chef asks you to deliver curry to five different people. Return to him after each delivery to get the next part of the request. 1 - The Master of Spices in front of the Babanacia Quest Shop 2 - Person on a boat in Bikkini 3 - Shopkeeper in the Bolg Black Market 4 - Coin dealer in the Casino 5 - Forest guardian in a small forest far to the west of Goronell #68 会心の目覚め Wake Up, Already! Location: Bolg Empire Prerequisite: Finish the "Ashes Fall on Bolg" plot events There's a guy in town who just can't stay awake. He even falls asleep on his feet sometimes. Give the poor narcoleptic an alarm clock and a cappucino (both can be found in stores) and then bring him an Imajinn that knows Wake Up. #69 妖精探索大作戦！ The Big Reunion Location: Moelle Forest Prerequisite: Complete the main game The fairy in Moelle Forest wants to get all of his buddies back now that the forest's darker forces have been quelled. Talk to him to get a hint about the location of one of these errant fairies. After you find it, you'll automatically return to Moelle. Talk to the main fairy again learn the next hint. Repeat until all four are found. Fairy 1: "Near a big skull..." Teleport to Heburuchi's Hideout, head due south. The fairy is near one of the barricades on the slope, on the hideout's side. He's kind of small and easy to miss if you aren't really looking. Fairy 2: "Cold, wet, frogs...?" This one is in Narklehat Ruins, a.k.a. the Frog Prince's Palace. The fairy is easily visible as a blue dot on the dungeon map. Fairy 3: "In a weird place... never seen anything like it... big, scary metal things running around" Use Gate to go to Hotroit. The fairy is at Mark's garage. Fairy 4: "Dark, and with a pale, skinny guy?" The cave in the mountains east of Bolg. There's a skeleton mining the area, and the fairy is keeping him company. Fairy 5: "Cold, with lots of trees..." Go to Koharu Island, south and a little east of Samura. There is a guardians forest in the middle of the island. The fairy is talking to the guardian girl there. #70 海賊王の宝 Location: Bikkini Prerequisite: Complete the main game There's a boy in Bikkini who has gotten his hands on a treasure map. He asks you to help him track the locations down. After talking to the boy, interview all the other people in Bikkini who are marked with blue dots on the map. After that, look for the marker stones: Nansho Island (mid-sized island SE of Bolg) Treil Coast (east of Nackelhart Ruins, aka the Serpent dungeon) Oldi Mountains, north trail (short flight from Reka) Outori Island (mid-sized island NNE of Goromell) Sangon Island (island due west of Bikkini) Kochi-kochi Island (SW of the snow continent) Harbess Coast (south of Heburuchi's Hideout, south of the mountains) Each of these will bear a short inscription from the pirates, and two Astram symbols. The first symbol is part of a message, the second is a number. Use the second symbols to put the first symbols in the right order. Talk to the boy in Bikkini after you've checked all these spots. Translate the symbols, put them in order, and input the correct word. He-bu-ru-chi-3-se-i or Heburuchi the 3rd After this, go and talk to Heburuchi on his airship to learn more about his ancestor. Finally, go to the island in the far NE corner of the map and check the marker there. It's not readable, so use the spell Turn Back Time to return it to its previous state.Read it, then go back to Bikkini to talk to the boy and conclude the quest. Quests 71 - 75 are all done for the Imajinn Professor, and all but one of them involve catching Imajinn. It is recommended that you read ahead a bit and catch a few in advance, if possible. #71 砂漠のイマージン Imajinn of the Sands Location: Babanacia Neroli, the Imajinn Professor, wants your help to study the local Imajinn more thoroughly. こどもアラッビン - small thing in a turban みじゅくババナン - a giant walking bunch of bananas. Hard to miss. Make sure they are in your main party and not in the Manhole, then talk to Neroli again for the reward. #72 機会のイマージン Heavy Metal Imajinn Location: Bolg Empire This time, Neroli wants to study the mechanical Imajinn that are common to this continent. ゼンダイン A top-heavy robot that is common near Bolg ポンポンメカ A small robot found most often E of Bolg つちハグルン A thing on a cogwheel that can be found SW of Bolg but is easiest found on the fairy island. Make sure they are in your main party and not in the Manhole, then talk to Neroli again for the reward. #73 雪山のイマージン Winter Wonder-jinn Location: Samura Neroli wants to know more about the Imajinn of the ice. These are second-tier Imajinn, so you have the option of levelling up an Imajinn until it can evolve, or just catch one at the right stage. ステルラ It looks like a frog on a white flower, common S of Samura ジョーオ Found in the Ice Caves. Its 1st-tier form is found around Samura となりのユウマ All four members of the Yuuma family can be found in the Ice Cave. Just catch them all and sort it out later. Make sure they are in your main party and not in the Manhole, then talk to Neroli again for the reward. #74 更なるイマージン Even More Imajinn! Location: Reka This quest calls for 3rd-tier Imajinn. If you've already got the base monsters, then hopefully you've leveled them some. Otherwise, you're liable to be in for a bit of level grinding here. None of them can be caught in the wild, it seems. ドラキュン Can be evolved from ヒュン (Ghost Valley) or マミュン (Dark Castle) Predominantly red in color テッカッチー Can be evolved from アッチー (path to Dekarock) or アッチッチー (Mt. Dekarock) Wears a cast-iron facemask ブラーバン Can be evolved from ソロッパ (hills N of Bikkini, Temple of Spirits tutorial), or トロッパ (Lake of the Dead) Not the one that you can find in the White Palace. Make sure they are in your main party and not in the Manhole, then talk to Neroli again for the reward. #75 伝説のイマージン Legendary Imajinn Location: Babanacia Prerequisite: Finish the main game. This time around is different. Neroli wants you to defeat three Legendary-type (i.e. mini-boss) Imajinn while he spectates. After each victory talk to him (he'll be standing nearby on the worldmap) to hear where the next target is. These monsters will not appear until you talk to him. #1 Oxydon Located on Koharu Island, south-by-southeast from Samura. Weak against fire, strong against darkness. #2 Golden Golem Located on the Temple Hills, north and a little east of Bikkini. Weak against wind, strong against physical attacks #3 Gengan Located on Nansho Island. No weaknesses, but it is strong against wind attacks. Quests 76 - 78 all involve the game's alchemy synthesis system. If possible, try to get as many ingredient items as possible in advance. #76 合成の名人 The Famed Alchemist Location: Bikkini Prerequisite: Get the alchemy pot A little girl wants you to make something she saw in a picture book. You have to synthesize a Flame Dagger and show it to her. Ingredients: 石のナイフ - Stone Knife, can be bought in Babanacia 炎のプリズム - Fire Prism, can be won off of サンサン in the desert or アッチー near Mt. Dekarock. You need to put one of each in the pot. #77 合成の達人 The Master Alchemist Location: the guardian forest on the Treil Coast, just east of Bikkini A young guardian man wants you to create a Brave Spear, a symbol of his people. Ingredients: 黒ハガネ＆こくよう石 - Black steel and obsidian. Both can be found on the ground around Bolg and the Ghost Valley ヒスイ玉 - Jade egg. Can be found on a promontory on the island east of Bolg, on the cliffs just outside the Temple of the Spirits (requires air-travel capability) and a few other spots on the map. You need to put two of each in the pot. #78 合成の超人 The Supreme Alchemist Location: Cave in the Temple Hills, a bit north of Bikkini, up on the cliff (requires air-travel capability) Prerequisite: Completing the main story. The guy in the cave is a famous alchemist, and he wants to test you with this assignment. He wants you to make an axe called the Battle God's Masakari. First, you need to make a Demon's Masakari: グレートアックス Great Axe. Buy it in Reka 闇のつばさ Dark Wing. Can be got off of various, but best stolen off of ジェントルー in the White Palace (looks like an owl) 記憶のヒゲ Memorial Moustache. Can be got off of various, but best stolen off of ジャームス (jazz piano duck thing) in the White Palace 1 Great Axe, 2 Dark Wings, and 3 Memorial Moustaches to make it. If you plan ahead, you can steal one from the boss of Quest #122, instead. Now here comes the hard part. In order to make the Battle God's Masakari, you need the weapon above as well as five Scrolls of Truth and five Rainbow Fossils. These things are RARE, and will take forever and a day to get. Here are the monsters that drop them: Scroll of Truth: アギドラン Golden Agidoran in the Ice Caves ゴブヒン Golden Gobuhin in the Lake of the Dead. Fairly common, and probably your best bet. The Japanese FAQs report a decent level of success. ジャームス Golden Jams in the Ghost Valley. Not a common thing to encounter, and only seems to show up with lower- level creatures. Scrolls are a rare item on them, and technically should be stealable, but with a REALLY low success rate. Also carries Tears of the Earth. Rainbow Fossil: ネルドラン Golden Neldran in the Ice Caves. Reportedly the best option ゴブヒンチーフ Golden Gobuhin Chief at the Lake of the Dead. Also carries Tears of the Earth. My Japanese source apparently raised a party from level 65 to 99 in the process of getting 5 of each of these. If you do, then you deserve congratulations. This is really hard. Alternately, it's possible to win some of these materials off the Master of the World (ultimate boss in Quest #131, repeatable), but that isn't exactly easy either. Quests 79 to 85 all involve the same traveling gentleman who has the worst luck when it comes to holding onto his travel journal. He is always dropping it in secluded spots, and it's up to you to find the damn thing over and over again. Each quest is required for the next one to appear. #79 旅人の手記（平原） Journal in the Grass Location: Goronell Find it NW of Goronell, on a little island in the middle of a river. Two trees will be growing there. #80 旅人の手記（火山） Journal in the Heat Location: Babanacia It's on the path to Mt. Dekarock, by one of the few trees to survive in that desolate landscape. #81 旅人の手記（孤島） Journal in the Isles Location: Dohton-mori Travel around the edge of the island until you get to the Blue Crab Cave. Search around near the red treasure chest. It should be right beside it. #82 旅人の手記（坑道） Journal in the Depths Location: Bolg Empire Additional Prerequisite: Learning the Teleport spell The notebook is at one of the mine entrances to the SW of Bolg. #83 旅人の手記（雪原） Journal in the Snows Location: Samura Additional Prerequisite: Finishing the Ice Caves events Go west of Samura to the guardians forest on the coast. Talk to one of the people in there to get the notebook. #84 旅人の手記（幻の大地） Journal in the Mists Location: Bikkini Additional Prerequisite: Finishing the event at the Place of Memory On the far NW end of Moya, you will find the image of a skull carved into the ground. Search around a large rock nearby. #85 旅人の手記（世界の中心） Journal in the ???? Location: Goronell Additional Prerequisite: Finish the main story This last time, he's dropped it in the forest known as the Heart of the World. If you haven't activated Quest #131, this is the same place where you can do that. Look around the red mushroom by the entrance. The quests after this point are all Hunt Quests. The player can sign up for these at the Quest Store, and must go back to the store to reap the rewards. For the most part, the target monsters will show up as blue dots on the local maps, but not on the main world map. Regular enemies that appear in hunts may drop items or have items to steal. Legendary monsters (mini-boss types) do not. #86 野菜どろぼう The Veggie Thief Monster name: Gaurias Monster location: Southeast of Goronell Weakness: Weak against water, Strong against fire Reward: Rusty Sword, 50 gold, 2 stamps #87 街道のいたずらっこ Highway Bullies Monster name: Grumpy Monster location: West of Goronell Weakness: Weak against water, Strong against fire Reward: Bitter Ice x4, 80 gold, 2 stamps #88 幻の根を求めて For the Root!

The World Guide can be found in a wood that is impossible to reach by air. To get there, head due south from Goronell and a little west, towards Moelle Forest. Explore the forested area that abuts the mountains (but east of the actual entrance to Moelle) to find a cavelike passageway. You can follow this all the way into the southern part of the Mid Continent (near the Temple of Spirits) and ultimately to the Guide's Wood. He's the bunny-headed gentle- man standing next to the big gate. Once you've stopped all of the "rips in the seams of reality" (as he seems to call them), the gate will open, and you can face the ultimate boss of the game-- the Master of the World. Good luck. ===================== Mirant the Ghost Boy ==================== In the DS version, Mirant's challenges were all proper sidequests, but in the PS3 version you have to go and find them on your own. He appears in various towns throughout the game. You first meet him at the large grave marker to the east of of Goronell Castle in Goronell. You need to use the Spiritalk spell every time you meet him in order to communicate. Quest #M1: Babanacia, near the Milk Fountain This question involves the story of the "The Lion King" It's the first chapter of the Stories section of Magic Master (p. 266 in the print version) precis: The young prince Tamaro doesn't believe he can be a good king, so he runs away from home. He comes upon a lion and gets eaten. From inside the lion's stomach, he tells the great cat that he is now the king. The new lion king moves into the castle and becomes a good ruler. But not long after, the kingdom is attacked by two dragons, the Dragon of the West (にしのりゅう) and the Dragon of the East (ひがしのりゅう) Using the same logic (?) as before, Tamaro directs the Lion to get himself eaten by the Dragon of the West, who is the greater of the two. They then inform the dragon that IT is now the king. As such, it must go defeat the other dragon. Hey, it's a fairy tale. It doesn't need to make much sense. The question: Tamaro, Lion King, Nishi no Ryuu, Higashi no Ryuu, which one is the biggest? The answer: The Dragon of the West. にしのりゅう. Quest #M2: Bikkini Town, on one of the bridges. This question involves the Astram language in the back of the book. Look at p. 13 in the book, where there is a picture of a magician. You need to transcribe the Astram symbols into Japanese. Ignore the bit coming out of his mouth, that's just a bit of graffiti. The right message is sewn into his robe. The answer: さいこうきゅう (the highest level of ability) Quest #M3: Douton-mori (Fairy town), in the clearing before you get to Big Mamma. This time, he's talking about hamburgers. I'm not sure how to phrase the question in English, but the answer is "the freshest of ingredients": i.e. crispy lettuce (パリパリレタス) Quest #M4: Bolg Empire, near the front of the city, overlooking the great avenue. The question: In the middle of Magic Master (PS3 version p212-3, print version p216-7) is a two-page spread showing the Great War. How many mechanical Imajinns are pictured therein? The chapter on mechanical Imajinn starts on p. 202 in the PS3 version, or p. 206 in the print version. The answer: There are five mechanical Imajinn pictured therein. The answer is 5. Just the number. Nothing else special about it. Quest #M5: Samura Town, in the Elder's House The question: Has to do with flowers found in the region. The answer: Magic Master p. 139. Which item looks most like a flower? Ice Flower. Answer is "アイスフラワー" Don't forget the dash at the end. Quest #M6: Reka Town, inside the Quest Shop The question: In the section of Magic Master called "Various Regions and Realms" various Astram symbols are used. But there is one that is only used once. What does it designate? The answer: All the maps use Astram numerals to denote the major areas. Most maps use only four or five of them, but the map of the southern Mid Continent has six. #6 is Mt. Decarock. Type in "デカロックサン" Quest #M7: Goronell Town, same place as before, after the Ashes event. The question is written on the tombstone. It's written in Astram, and is annoying to figure out. Let's skip to the answer. Take the first two runes, Gate and Imajinn. Take the black lines in their stroke orders (as viewable in the book), and combine them. Which spell do you get? The answer: Rune # 45, Summons. Type in "しょうかん" Quest #M8: The Place of Memories in Moya Only happens after finishing the main story The question: There are twelve evil men in the forms of beasts. One of them may be found in Magic Master, or his raiment at least. If you look on p. 118 of the in-game Magic Master (or p.103 of the print edition), you will find a piece of clothing that looks just like what Shazarl was wearing as the Elder Duke of the Ox. It is called まどうしのほうい, and that is the answer. ============================ Credits ==================================== First to Level-5 and Studio Ghibli, for making this game Then to Bandai-Namco, for its plans to bring it to the US Next to Dragon Quest 7 on the GameFAQs boards, for providing some info on Mirant Last to MelanieUK, Eddysugihartono, and Megami84 at GameFAQS, for asking so many questions about these quests that I finally got tired of answering them all and decided to make this guide instead.
