Hello everyone, and welcome to our FAQ/Walkthrough for Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana. This title is the newest in the long-running Ys series, featuring a brand new adventure for Adol the Red. Zoelius and I are both long-time Ys and Falcom fans in general and are excited to bring you this guide.

Ys VIII may be the, well... ninth game in the series, but it is totally OK to pick up and play as playing other games in the series is definitely not required (helpful, but not required at all). For those following along with the series, Ys VIII takes place between Ys V and Ys VI chronologically. Enough of the history lesson though, Zoel and I are here to help you thoroughly explore the Island of Seiren and leave no stone unturned, so let's get to it!

Enjoy the guide, everyone!

~ Zoelius and BK
