Seiken Densetsu 3 Walkthrough (version 1.00) Based on: SFC, NTSC-J version (SHVC-A3DJ-JPN) - When saving the game, the most recent save file is automatically selected, so be careful if you pick up an older save file again. - Physical damage is a straight up ATP - DFP. - Special attacks use the following ATP multipliers: Level 1 | 1,5 (+5) Level 2 | 2,0 Level 3 | 2,5 - Elemental resistance involves the following ATP multipliers: Weak | 1,5 Resistant | 0,5 Immune | 0 Absorb | -1 - Hitting an elemental weakness with a spell produces double damage. - No enemy is weak to Dryad or Luna. - Level 2 and 3 techs ignore weapon element. - The saber ATP bonus can't stack with Power Up; the more recent one will replace the other. If you want the Power Up bonus as well as elemental damage, you need to get the saber in first. - Stat Up / Down spells produce an increase / decrease of 1/3. For HP, it's 20%. - There are 6 characters: Angela, Duran, Hawkeye, Riesz, Kevin and Charlotte. At the start of the game, you form your party by choosing three of these characters. There is no way to switch these afterwards. - The first character you choose will determine which of the three different storylines will take place. Angela / Duran | Dragon story Hawkeye / Riesz | Demon story Kevin / Charlotte | Beast story - Angela learns the most powerful offensive spells in the game (mainly of use against bosses due to counters). - Duran has high ATP and also learns most elemental sabers on the Dark path. - Hawkeye's ATP isn't that high, but he gets two hits, which more than makes up for it. On the Dark path, he learns skills with stat down effects. - Riesz is a good fighter and can also learn stat up spells (Light path) or stat down spells (Dark path). - Kevin can deal the highest physical damage in the game thanks to his ATP bonuses. The first one is a 1,15x multiplier received in his night time wolf form. The second one is the Power Up bonus of 4/3 that becomes active when he gets hit in his wolf form. The total bonus is a little over 1,5x. - Kevin does two hits with his normal attack and Lv1 tech just like Hawkeye. The tech will rarely get two hits outside of bosses, though. Typically, on normal enemies, one of the two hits will get a Miss or just miss completely due to the knockback. - On the Light side, Kevin learns Heal Light and Hikou. Hikou has the effect of Power Up, but Kevin can only use it on himself. - Charlotte is best suited for healing spells, as she has the highest Piety and learns Heal Light and Tinkle Rain without class-changing. - On the Light path, Charlotte gets the basic elemental sabers. - Most of the game is the same regardless of which characters you choose. The differences between the 3 storylines are the dungeon after the first visit to Mana no Seiiki, and the final dungeon. Each character also has their own short intro sequence. - You really shouldn't worry too much about your character choices. The only thing you should avoid is having Angela and Charlotte in the same party. They both have very poor physical damage potential, so having them both would serve a great disadvantage. - Another prominent aspect of SD3 is its class change system. Each character has 7 different classes (including the default one). You can do two class changes. The first one requires you to be at Lv18, and the second one requires Lv38 as well as a specific item. You can choose from two different classes at each class change. You should read about the different classes and choose the ones you want in advance. - The party I use is Angela, Duran and Hawkeye. The classes I get are the Rune Master, Sword Master and the Nightblade. - You'll no doubt notice issues with the game engine (such as enemies still being able to attack you for a while even after hitting 0 HP). However, because of how simple the action is, it's no big deal. You'll just have to get used to it. - Always focus on increasing Strength and Constitution when leveling up (thus increasing your ATP and DFP). - If a stat has been increased in recent levels, there's a chance it'll be locked out. - Weapons have a base ATP value as well as a Str modifier (eg. 24 + 12*Str). - Body armors have a base DFP value as well as a Con modifier (eg. 46 + 12*Con). They also provide MDF based on an Int modifier (4 or 8 * Int). DFP maxes out at 300. Every character can reach it regardless of class choices. - The highest multiplier for both weapons and body armor is 14. Thus, a single point of Str translates to a 14 point difference in ATP / damage with the best weapons. - Dead characters are automatically revived with 1 HP at the end of battle. - Enemies respawn when you move two areas away. - Normal enemies have a chance of using their special attacks in certain situations: a. When hit by magic or Lv2 or Lv3 waza b. When dropping below 50% or 25% HP c. Immediately at the start of a battle - The first two apply to all enemies. Consequently, you should not use offensive magic or Lv2 or Lv3 waza on normal enemies to avoid getting countered. The special attacks are quite powerful, and you'll have to put up with enough of them because of b and c. - Most bosses (the large ones) don't use special attacks as counters. Instead, they use them according to a timer. However, you still shouldn't use Lv2 or Lv3 Techs, as they're just not optimal (unless your Lv1 Techs are doing very low damage due to stat up/down effects). - The bosses that do counter are the small ones that move more like normal enemies. There are 7 of those. - Lv1 techs are optimal not just because of counters but also because of TP cost; by the time you can use the higher level waza, most enemies are either dead or close to death. In bosses, the higher TP cost is not worth the extra damage. And don't forget that elemental sabers don't affect higher level waza. - Even Lv1 techs, however, should not be used indiscriminately. You don't want to use them on an enemy that's close to death especially if they're casting a spell, as normal attacks are faster. - Regarding type b actions, the roll is only made when the threshold is crossed. - Unlike in SD2, you'll typically find a save point before a boss (although, in some cases, you might miss it if it's at a dead end down a different path). - You can have 10 different items in your ring menu with 9 of each at most. You can have at most 99 of any item in your storage. When refilling items in your ring menu from storage, you don't have to highlight the particular item on the ring menu's side. You should get rid of items in your storage that you have no use for. - Healing items: Manmaru Drop | 100 HP Poto no Abura | Heal Light (s/a) Pakkun Choco | 300 HP Puipui Sou | Tinkle Rain (s) Hachimitsu Drink | 100% HP Maama Poto no Abura| Tinkle Rain (s/a) Mahou no Kurumi | 20 MP Hoshikuzu no Herb | Remove all effects Tenshi no Seihai | Revive with 100% HP&MP - Heal Light: Class 1 | 25 + 12,5 * Seishin (3 MP) Class 2 | 40 + 20 * Seishin > * 0,8 when multi-targeting Class 3 | 47,5 + 23,75 * Seishin - Heal Light is the only healing spell in the game. Three characters can learn it: Charlotte, Duran and Kevin. While Charlotte will always learn it, Duran and Kevin will only learn it by taking the Light path (which I would not recommend). Heal Light is by no means necessary, though, and you should be able to manage with just healing items. - Tinkle Rain: Heal status ailments. - Spells triggered by items behave like normal spells except no MP is consumed and they can't be blocked by Silence. Make sure you use these items with the character best suited for the spell. - A subject can only have one status ailment at a time, with the pre- existing ailment being replaced if another one is inflicted. Consequently, you can use the Chibikko Hammer to recover from ailments. - The last enemy you kill (more or less) in a given area has a fair chance of leaving a chest behind. Enemies have 3 different drop slots: common, less common and uncommon. Enemies don't drop equipment this time around. As a result, the chests may not be worth opening because of the traps. - The game features in-game time flow and a seven-day week. A single day is approximately 17 minutes long and is split evenly between day and night. Day and night end halfway through the dusk/dawn transition phases that cover 1/8 of a single day each (128s). The day of the week changes 192s into the night (128s after dusk ends). - Time runs 7,5 times faster on the world map (a single day lasting 2m 16s). - If you check into an inn during the day, you can choose whether to get up in the morning or at night (after dawn or dusk ends). - The Yumemisou item can be used to switch the time of the day (it uses the same times as when resting at an inn). The item can't be bought, though. - Elemental spells will be 25% stronger when used during the day of the corresponding element. - When choosing a target, the way the indicator responds to input depends on the way the targets are positioned on the screen. Specifically, it uses simple x and y-axis values. Eg. if you press down, the indicator will move to the next target lower on the y-axis regardless of the x value. - If you hold down the attack button, the AI will take control of the character. It's generally best to stay on manual, though. - Check the sound settings in the main menu (not available while actually playing). I use Stereo and Normal. - Characters only gain 1 HP per level between Lv46-55 (2-3 if Con is increased). - Stats: Str | Chikara Dex | Subayasa Con | Tairyoku Int | Chisei Piety | Seishin Luck | Un Stat ranking HP MP Str Con Int Piety Kevin Charl. Duran 21-22 Kevin 22 Angela 20-22 Charl. 20-22 Duran Angela Riesz 18-20 Duran 21 Charl. 18-20 Angela 18-20 Hawkeye Riesz Kevin 17-19 Riesz 20 Riesz 17-19 Riesz 17-19 Riesz Hawkeye Hawkeye 16-18 Hawkeye 19 Hawkeye 16-18 Hawkeye 15-18 Charl.

Otherwise, it's illegal to have the rom on your hard drive. - Hawkeye gains 72 HP at Lv56 (supposed to be 12). - Due to a programming error, critical hits rarely occur, and anything that's supposed to increase the critical hit rate won't change that. - TP-related issues: - TP may deplete with a delay, allowing you to execute the Lv1 tech multiple times. This is not uncommon, so I suggest you try and take advantage of it. - Sometimes, TP will be depleted from another character. - A character may gain TP from using their Lv1 tech. (uncommon) - Incantation time runs by even when the action is paused. - Controller settings are reset to default if all PCs are incapacitated (eg. sleep, snowman, dead) without a game over occurring. - Elemental sabers increase a subject's ATP by 10%, but the bonus is lost as soon as the subject is hit. - If a subject has an elemental saber that corresponds with the element of the day, a multiplier of 0,95 is applied to their DFP when physical damage is received. - There seem to be some issues with Kevin's wolf ATP bonus. Sometimes it gets applied twice, and it's possible for the bonus to remain in effect after battle and even if you move around.

I set Confirm to R and Ring Menu to Y myself. - The fastest way to get to the ring menu of an AI controlled character is to hold the Ally 1/2 button when you hit the ring menu button. - I use the second window type (the one right from the default one). - Press Start to access your storage. It can't be accessed during battle. - Find an area with three NPCs, one sleeping, one blocking a path to some area, and one just standing around. Talk to the last one. Next, talk to Victor in the courtyard and you should be able to go see the queen. \\\ Reika no Setsuken || - You can't really handle the enemies, so just make a run for it (I don't mean run literally, as there's no way to move faster during battle).

After Jessica leaves, check the wall. - Leave the fortress through the southwest cave. ---- Intro: Riesz ---- \\\ Lorant || Default (Riesz): Bronze Lance, Padded Leather - The Needlebird has quite a bit of HP, but at least you can't die. - In the castle, you need to talk one of the following NPCs: a. The regular-looking NPC northwest from the throne room. b. The regular-looking NPC south of the throne room. c. The amazoness blocking a path on the east side. - Next, talk to Alma in Elliot's room (near the throne room). - Next, take the path outside that was previously blocked. - After the scene at the control room, head to the throne room. ---- Intro: Kevin ---- \\\ Tsukiyo no Mori || Default (Kevin): Leather Glove, - Head west.

The items aren't anything impressive, so I'd just use them for healing. They heal the whole party for 50 HP, which isn't much but it's something.

If you buy the gunpowder instead (for either 5000 or 3000 Lucre), you could put Jewel Eater and Gnome on hold for a while. - Once you catch up to Watts again, talk to him to trigger the boss. - Don't forget to refill the healing items in your ring menu before fighting bosses.

The cannon will appear in the courtyard once you've talked to either the woman in the southwest house during the day or the woman at the bar during the night. Shop: \\\ Byzel || Drake no Uroko 22 Lucre Poto no Abura 30 Lucre Maama Poto no Abura 22 Lucre Hikari no Coin 22 Lucre Specter no Hitomi 40 Lucre - Check the black market during the night, so you can stock up on the items above (especially Poto no Abura). You can only buy them here. - Specter no Hitomi casts Anti-Magic, which removes the effects of support magic as well as elemental resistance for some reason. - To reach your next destination, Palo, catch a ride from the harbor for 150 Lucre. \\\ Palo || Shop: Kashi no Tsue 220 Lucre Jooubachi no Dress 220 Lucre Broadsword 276 Lucre Witch Hood 184 Lucre Roundel Dagger 234 Lucre Lamellar Armor 220 Lucre Headgear 215 Lucre Kaitou no Manto 200 Lucre Garravilla 194 Lucre \\\ Ten Kakeru Michi || - Go to B4 for a scene.

Item: Chibikko Hammer \\\ Byzel || - Talk to the old lady at the black market to obtain the Chibikko Hammer (requires an empty item slot). - Catch a ship to Jad. Shop: \\\ Judd || Suishou no Yubiwa 154 Lucre Hagane no Kote 154 Lucre Touzoku no Udewa 160 Lucre \\\ Rabi no Mori || - Head for the gargoyle statue near the area where you met the Fairy. Examine it to open a hidden passage, which you won't be able to follow until you use the Chibikko Hammer on your party. \\\ Korobokkuru no Mori || - Talk to all five NPCs inside the tree houses. After that, Don Peri should co-operate. - Afterwards, make your way back to Palo and head to Kaze no Kairou in the mountains. Spirit: Jinn \\\ Kaze no Kairou || Boss: Tzenker A6 A5 A7 A4 TM: Ten Kakeru Michi | | B2: Recovery Point A8>>A3-A1-TM B3: Mana Stone / A9 | B4: Tzenker / Dangard | A2 B2-B1-B3-B4 [Boss] - 1808 HP, 160 xp, 1246 Lucre - Elemental weakness: Earth / Gnome - Return to the meadow near the Amazon Hideout where you passed out earlier. Once the ring menu pops up, choose Jinn. Items: 3x Tenshi no Seihais, 9x Manmaru Drops \\\ Lorant || Bosses: Genoa, Bill & Ben [Boss] - 2900 HP - Elemental weakness: Water / Undine - You won't be able to save the game between these two battles.

Note that once you do, you won't have access to the Mana Stone in a while, so make sure you won't go past Lv18 during the next few dungeons. Spirit: Shade \\\ Yuureisen || Boss: Gorva - There are three ghost traders here; one with items, one with weapons, and one with armor (the same stuff you could buy in Palo). - Once you find the captain's cabin, examine the bookshelves in this order: right, left, middle, left. Examine the logbook, then talk to the spectral figure with the character you are willing to let go for a while (anyone but Angela). You can still switch it afterwards. The character will return after the boss.

There's a good spot where you can go around in a circle. The enemies in the cave are worth more xp, but they're also quite a bit tougher. I'd say the jungle is faster. - The totem pole at the Dark Priest village is a recovery point. - Talk to the Dark Priest near the one who sells weapons. Next, head west to eventually find an area with no enemies (I suggest you run away from the Cockatrices on your way there). Examine the small boulder there, and a ring menu should pop up. Choose Gnome and you'll gain access to the Kishibe no Doukutsu.

Afterwards, check the chest for the Pihyara Flute, which you can use at any beach to call Booskaboo. \\\ Kaze no Kairou || - If and when you reach Lv18, return to the Mana Stone at the end of Kaze no Kairou for the first class change. Here's what I'm going for: - Angela: Dark-Light (Delvar -> Rune Master) (251 ATP max) - Duran: Dark-Light (Gladiator -> Sword Master) (334 ATP max) - Hawkeye: Dark-Dark (Ninja -> Night Blade) (294 ATP max) - Riesz: Light-Light (Walküre -> Vanadis) (316 ATP max) - Charlotte: Light-Light (Priestess -> Bishop) (262 ATP max) - Kevin: Dark-Light (Bashkar -> Death Hand) (306 ATP max) - I go with the Rune Master to get the Death Spell. The downside is it gives her the lowest Str (15). - The Sword Master can cast most elemental sabers (all except for Light and Dark). Leaf Saber allows you to keep your MP up quite well (7% drain). Moon Saber allows you to drain 13% HP, but it's really only worth using during bosses. - I take the Night Blade simply because it has the highest Strength (I never really bother using the stat down skills).

Not any higher than that, though, since you've got the second class change coming up and you should try not to be higher than the required Lv38 at that point (it also requires certain items, and getting those will take a while). - By now, you've likely started getting Bomb and Shinigami-kun from trapped chests. As a result, you may not want to open any chests. - After the event in the castle, you can start hunting down the seven God Beasts (Shinjuu) in any order you want. Getting around will also be much easier thanks to Flammie. - The markers on the map will not go out as you defeat the Shinjuus, so you may want to write down which ones you've killed. ---- Hawkeye / Riesz ---- \\\ Deen || - New gear.

The ??? no Tane is an uncommon drop and you can only get them if the Paapa Potos are at least Lv33. There's no other way to get these seeds until you're at the end of the game. - Find the area with a note on the wall. After examining it, return to the previous area and examine the two slabs on the wall. A ring menu should pop up on each one. Choose Wisp for the left one and Shade for the right one. - After passing through the area that used to be flooded, you'll find two paths leading north. The left one takes you to a save point, and the right one takes you to Light Gazer. - This is the place where I get my ??? no Tanes. Unfortunately, you can't reroll the results (except once, kind of), so you just have to get lucky. If you're having trouble getting seeds at all, you need to do some resetting. - Rune no Sho: A green book. - Kenshou no Akashi: A green medallion. (Sword Master) - Toushi no Akashi: A red medallion. (Duelist) - Yome no Saikoro: A red die. - Brisingamen: A golden chain. - Seisui no Kobin: A golden jar. - Shirou no Tamashii: A green... thing. - Angela: Dark-Light (Delvar -> Rune Master) (251 ATP max) - Duran: Dark-Light (Gladiator -> Sword Master) (334 ATP max) - or Dark-Dark (Gladiator -> Duelist) (351 ATP max) - Hawkeye: Dark-Dark (Ninja -> Night Blade) (294 ATP max) - Riesz: Light-Light (Walküre -> Vanadis) (316 ATP max) - Charlotte: Light-Light (Priestess -> Bishop) (262 ATP max) - Kevin: Dark-Light (Bashkar -> Death Hand) (306 ATP max) - If you put these items in your ring menu, you can see which class they unlock in the description. Once the character is at Lv38 and you have the necessary item, you can use the the statue at the Mana Sanctuary for the second and final class change. Hopefully, you can do it for at least two of your characters. If the RNG really screws you over, you may have to settle for just one. If you hit Lv40 before getting the right items, you should probably move on. Maama Potos give you 315 xp and Paapa Potos give you 379. You'll be leveling up fairly quickly. - If you manage to do the class change at the earliest possible level, the character will reach max stats around Lv55. Anyone who has to wait until the end of the game won't get max stats until about Lv70.

You can get 100 000 Exp in about 30 minutes. You'll want to do it at night to avoid Rust Hurricane. The enemies have between 560-700 HP. Use Death on Nightblades and Lesser Demons (Nightblades because they're dangerous, and Lesser Demons, so you can focus on the Gremlins and avoid getting spammed with Evil Gate). Go rest in Maia when day breaks. You'll get about 60k per trip. - The Nightblade's Bunshinzan deals 360/380 pod to all characters. It's possible for them to use it twice in a row, although it's very unlikely. I've only seen it happen a couple of times. - You should try and score the seed weapons (the armor is of little to no significance, though). You can use Death to take out the Boulders with ease without the other two characters engaging the enemy. If you don't have Death, you can still get the seeds pretty easily in the third area (coming from the north).

They'll respawn normally, but the path will remain open once you've cleared them out once.

He behaves like a normal enemy, so you can easily avoid counters. His normal attacks are nothing to worry about, so you'll have no trouble until you hit the 50% mark. His type b action is a combo of attacks that will leave you severely wounded and Moogled, while the spells he casts on himself will heal him for 760 HP. If he heals himself back above 50%, the combo will repeat. - The solution is quite simple. As soon as the combo begins, hit him with a Lv3 tech with your strongest character. He's got 240 DFP, so you'll want to use Power Up. Don't let the other two characters use techs (on their own) so as not to trigger the TP bug. Stop using techs when you think you're getting close to 50% (it'll take a few minutes). You can heal yourself during the combo if needed; just mash the ring menu button after an attack. - The Black Rabi is weak to Light but reflects Light-elemental spells. - Defeating the Black Rabi gives you the Moogle Badge, but it's hardly of use at this point in the game. ---- Hawkeye / Riesz ---- \\\ Kurayami no Doukutsu || Lost & Found: Buki Bougu no Tane (Nightblade, Wolf Devil), ??? no Tane (Boulder, Ghost, Puchi Tiamat, Greater Demon) Bosses: Zable Fahr (three parts), Jagan no Hakushaku - Just like Nightblades, Wolf Devils may use their special twice in a row. - Get the seed weapons before proceeding into the Dark Castle.

They're all over the place. If you don't have Turn Undead, it's time to use those Lv3 Techs. - B9 is the best place to level up. Take out the two Undead enemies with Turn Undead, then trigger a respawn. If you don't have Turn Undead, you're kind of fu*ked. While there are no Necromancers inside the palace, there are Golems instead, so it's definitely not a good choice.
