Jan 27, 2001 - 0.7 : Added suggestions from readers. Sept 11, 2000 - 0.63: Gave DragonKnight Zero<firstname.lastname@example.org> credit for his spell list.

I N T R O D U C T I O N ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Seiken Densetsu 3 aka Secret of Mana 2 was created in 1995 by SQUARE. Sadly the game never made it overseas. Fast forward to 1999 and we find an independent translating group fully translates the game. Now we can see what all the fuss was about. This is truly one of the finest games made. One of the reasons why Square didn't translate this game and bring it over to the U.S is because the SNES market was dying and people were waiting for the next gen systems. The graphics are one of the best if not the best ever on the SNES. The sound is excellent and of course since it's from Square, so is the music. The storyline you ask? Good not great. Nothing too complex, pretty much the same old hero must save the world story line with the dungeon-town-dungeon-town formula that we all know of. Theres that occasional eye brow raising plot twist but nothing spectacular. The gameplay is almost like the first SoM. Gone is the percentage bar but you still must wait before you can attack even if there isn't a bar. Also each character has a unique weapon unlike the original where anyone could equip anything. Additionally, you can't charge your weapons like in the first SoM. You have to attack the enemy and each attack charges your special technique bar and when it's full, you can execute your special. Each character is unique and you can choose which character you want in your party from the beginning of the game. There are 6 to choose from. One of the best thing about Seiken Densetsu 3 is the ability to change classes. When you reach a certain point in a game and have enough exp. points, you'll be able to change classes. It is possible to change classes twice. You can either goto the Light or Dark side. This makes it feel like theres more than 6 characters in the game. Another very cool thing about Seiken Densetsu 3 is that depending on the characters you choose, you will get a unique storyline. I believe they call this the triangle system or something. Anyway, all of these features adds to tons of replay value as there are many different party combinations you can do which brings you to this guide... ______________________________________________________________________________________________ III.

Here's what the attributes mean: Strength (STR): More power. Your attacks and tech will do more damage if this is raised. Agility (DEX): Increases your evade rate and hit rate. Vitality (CON): Increases your HP and enemies' attack won't hurt as much. Intelligence (INT): Increases chances of dodging enemies' magic attack and decreases the damage dealt to you. Spirit (PIE): Indirect magic effectiveness increases. Luck (WC) : Increases chance of critical hits and lowers amount of traps in the item roulette.

She has the most powerful attack spells out of the rest. She has weak offense, which isn't a problem because her power lies in her magic. Just carry a lot of magic walnuts. She also learns 6 spells before she even changes class and she can multitarget all of her first spells which is a plus. More of a support character if you ask me. _Tech> Double Attack Sorceress (Light) : She learns Saint Beam, Land Slide, Thunderstorm, Mega Splash, and Exploder. Nothing special. Can't multitarget her new spells either. _Tech> Pink typhoon Grand Deviner (LL) : Has the ability to multitarget her new spells now. Requires: Arcane Book But they still suck. She learns Double spell which Weapon: Gunbantine takes quite a while to cast. _Tech> Spiral Rod Armor: Mayan's Dress Arch Mage (LD) : Same abilities as the Grand Deviner, just switch double Requires: Book of Secrets spell with Rainbow. _Tech> Dancing Rod Weapon: Spiritual Staff Armor: Elmos' Coat Delvar (Dark) : Same thing as her first class with one extra spell, Dark Force. Better offense than the sorceress, but as I've said before, her offense really doesn't matter since she's only useful because of her spells. _Tech> Star Attack Magus (DD) : She learns Land Slide, Thunderstorm, Mega Splash, Requires: Forbidden Book Exploder, and the most powerful spell in the game, Weapon: Dragon Rod Ancient. Takes a long time to cast. _Tech> Hot Shot Armor: Ancient Dress Rune Master (DL) : Her best class IMO. She gets the ability to multitarget Requires: Book of Rune Dark Force. She is also the only class with Level 3 Weapon: Rune Staff elemental spells which besides doing a lot of damage, Armor: Rune Coat adds status ailments. She also gets the Death Spell which does 999 to enemies weaker than you. Too bad she can't multitarget her new spells. _Tech> 10t MAGICIAN SORCERESS GRAND DEVINER ARCHMAGE DELVAR MAGUS RUNE MASTER ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ STR: 8 14 17 16 13 16 15 AGI: 8 14 17 16 13 16 15 VIT: 8 14 18 18 14 18 19 INT: 12 17 21 20 18 22 21 SPR: 11 17 19 20 16 18 19 LUC: 10 14 16 17 13 15 16 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ b) D U R A N ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ ¬SEX: Male, AGE: 17, WEAPON: Sword, HOME: Forcena, CLASS: Fighter ¬ATTACK SPEED: Very Slow, ATTACK POWER: Very High, Single Swing What a disappointment. He was suppose to be the strongest fighter but he's not even stronger than Hawk (well he is technically but Hawk's double swing does more damage). He's not entirely useless as his sabers are useful. Note: Only Duran's Light side can carry a shield (+Evade, see _Shield section_ of the guide for more info). Duran is also very slow. Knight (Light) : He learns Heal light. Good if you don't have a healer in your group. _Tech> Step Cut Paladin (LL) : Gets Saint Saber but can't even multitarget it. Requires: Paladin's Proof He does get a full screen Tech and the best shield Weapon: Brave Blade but it's not worth it. _Tech> Flashing Sword (all) Armor: Hero's Armor Lord (LD) : Can now multitarget Heal Light and can cast tinkle Requires: Lord's Proof rain. Nothing else... Only good if you don't already Weapon: Sigmund have a healer. Personally, I wouldn't touch his Light Armor: Guardian Armor side since they all pretty much suck except for the ability to wear a shield and shields makes you pimp-like or something. _Tech> Magic Circle Gladiator (Dark) : He learns the 4 useful elemental sabers. Higher offense. Full screen tech. _Tech> Whirlwind Sword (all) Duelist (DD) : Learns Dark Saber. Still can't multitarget Sabers. Has Requires: Duelist's Proof highest offense out of all his classes but not very useful. Weapon: Death Bringer _Tech> Eruption Sword (all) Armor: Skeleton Mail Swordmaster (DL) : Easily his best class. Can now multitarget all his Requires: Master's Proof elemental sabers. He learns Moon and Leaf sabers Weapon: Ragnarok but can't cast it on more than one person. Go with this. Armor: Mastery Armor _Tech> Vacuum Sword (all) FIGHTER KNIGHT PALADIN LORD GLADIATOR DUELIST SWORDMASTER ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ STR: 12 17 21 21 18 22 21 AGI: 10 15 17 18 16 19 18 VIT: 11 17 21 21 17 21 21 INT: 8 13 15 16 14 17 16 SPR: 8 14 17 16 13 15 16 LUC: 8 14 16 17 13 15 16 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ c) K E V I N ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ ¬SEX: Male, AGE: 15, WEAPON: Claw, HOME: Beast Kingdom, CLASS: Grappler ¬ATTACK SPEED: Very Fast, ATTACK POWER: High, Double Swing This is what I'm talking about. Kevin is the strongest fighter in the game whether day or night hands down. He has the ability to hit twice. At night, he becomes a wolf and becomes even more stronger. Very useful as he can heal you if you go with his light side. He also gets 2 tech with each class change another +. _Tech> Ashura Dream Fist Monk (Light) : He learns Heal Light and Pressure point. Pressure point makes Kevin even stronger and heal light makes him that much more useful. _Tech> Whirlwind Kick (all), Tornado Throw God Hand (LL) : Nothing much but Aura Wave (Maxes Tech Bar). Requires: Gold Wolf Soul _Tech>Byakko Shockwave (all), Stardust Bomb Weapon: Spiral Claw Armor: Byakko's Suit Warrior Monk (LD) : Gets to multitarget Heal Light now and gains Leaf Saber. Requires: Silver Wolf Soul Possibly his best class if you don't have a healer. Bad Weapon: Holy Glove thing is he doesn't have a full screen tech. Armor: Genbu's Suit _Tech> Genbu 100-Kick, Blow Impact Bashkar (Dark) : Gains nothing new but has more strength than the Monk. _Tech> Water Moon Slice (all), Bastard Slam Dervish (DD) : He learns the useful Moon Saber. Can't really lose with Requires: Demon Wolf Soul Kevin no matter what class you choose. Weapon: Giant's Glove _Tech> Suzaku Sky Dance (all), Varitubach Armor: Suzaku's Suit Death Hand (DL) : Kevin's strongest class. He learns Energy Ball (increases Requires: Death Wolf Soul critical hits)._Tech> Seiryuu Death Fist (all), Dead Crush Weapon: Skull Disect Armor: Seiryu's Suit GRAPPLER MONK GODHAND WARRIOR MONK BASHKAR DERVISH DEATH HAND ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ STR: 10 15 18 17 16 18 19 AGI: 9 14 17 16 15 17 18 VIT: 12 18 22 22 18 22 22 INT: 8 13 15 16 14 17 16 SPR: 8 14 17 16 13 16 15 LUC: 8 14 16 17 13 16 15 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ d) H A W K ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ ¬SEX: Male, AGE: 17, WEAPON: Knives, HOME: Navarre, CLASS: Thief ¬ATTACK SPEED: Fast, ATTACK POWER: Medium, Double Swing Hawk has the most spells/skills out of all the characters. He also has the the ability to attack twice making him the 2nd best fighter. High agility means more evade and higher hit rate. Always a good character to have on your team. _Tech> Backslash Ranger (Light) : Learns a few useless trap moves. Sleep flower is ok. He has weaker offense than the Ninja. Get this for his final light classes. _Tech> Flying Swallow Toss (all) Wanderer (LL) : Gets a lot of new spells. Can now multitarget sleep Requires: Good Luck Dye flower and body change. Lunatic is good as it can Weapon: Orihalkon lower a boss' HP. Transhape makes him invulnerable Armor: Illusion Cuirass for a while. He also gets Reflect Magic, Energy Ball, and Aura Wave (always good to have). Only downfall is weak offense._Tech> Dance of Roses Rogue (LD) : Sleep flower and Body Change can now be multitargeted. Requires: Bad Luck Dye As with the Wanderer, gets a lot of new skills, mostly Weapon: Man Slaughter useless as he can't multitarget any of it. Better offense Armor: Fur of the Silver Wolf than the Wanderer. It's really a choice between better skills or more offense. _Tech> Thousand Slice Ninja (Dark) : Stronger than the Ranger and has Hawk's most useful skills IMO. His new skills deals damage and lower the enemy's stats. _Tech> Silhouette Slice Nightblade (DD) : Gains Poison Mist (Poison), Fire Breath, Hidden Needles Requires: Nighteye Dye (Silence) and Big Wrench (lowers HP). His new skills Weapon: Death Stroke makes him even more useful. He also gets a very good Armor: Jet-black Garb full screen tech. Best Class IMO. Also the strongest class for Hawk. _Tech> Split Image Slice (all) Ninja Master (DL) : Gains nothing new but the ability to multitarget all Requires: Bullseye Dye of his Ninja skills. I like the ability to multitarget Weapon: Kongou Raken Shurikens and possibly kills the enemies before they Armor: Fuuma Clan's Armor even reach you. A nice class though not his best. _Tech> Shadow Dive THIEF RANGER WANDERER ROGUE NINJA NIGHTBLADE NINJA MASTER ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ STR: 9 14 16 17 15 18 17 AGI: 12 17 20 21 18 21 22 VIT: 9 15 19 19 15 19 19 INT: 9 14 16 17 15 17 18 SPR: 9 15 18 17 14 17 16 LUC: 12 18 21 22 17 20 21 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ e) L I S E ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ ¬SEX: Female, AGE: 16, WEAPON: Spear, HOME: Rolante, CLASS: Amazoness ¬ATTACK SPEED: Slow, ATTACK POWER: High, Single Swing A good fighter and has very useful skills. She can boost your stats (light) or lower the enemies'(dark). I would choose the latter because you can buy stats up items but you can't buy stats down items. But then Marduke rules. It's all up to you. _Tech> Whirlwind Lance Valkryie (Light) : She gets all the stats up spells but can't multitarget them yet. She gets a full screen tech but is weaker than the Rune Maiden. _Tech> Vacuum Surge Spear (all) Vanadies (LL) : Weak. Can't multitarget her stats up spells and her Requires: Briesingamen summon sucks. Don't touch this. Weapon: True Spear _Tech> Light Shot Spear (all) Armor: Goddess Armor Star Lancer (LD) : She can finally Multitarget her stats up spells and Requires: MorningStar Chain learns an excellent summon, Marduke. Marduke does damage Weapon: Star Geyser to all enemies on screen and has a chance of silencing Armor: Polaris Armor them.

She's a good party member to have as she learns Heal Light and Tinkle Rain before her first class change. She's more of a support character as her offense sucks and her attack spells aren't that good neither. _Tech> Bonkle Priestess (Light) : She gains the ability to multitarget Heal Light, Holy Ball and learns 4 elemental sabers. Good class to start off with. _Tech> Jump Bishop (LL) : Learns Saint Saber, Magic Shield, Turn Undead (all), Requires: Holy Water Vial and can now multitarget Tinkle Rain.

(In other words, do you have Kevin? ;) 5 - Excellent 4 - Good 3 - Ok 2 - Below Average 1 - Bad _________________________ 1. Angela¬Carlie¬Lise ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Alright party. Theres a healer, attacker, and good attack spells. Angela should be Rune Master or Magus depending on what magic you like, Rise should be Star Lancer so you can raise your party's stats, and Carlie should be a Necromancer, she can heal your party and lower the enemies' stats. Rise is the main attacker, while Angela casts spells, Carlie will heal when necesarry. A.MAGIC: 5 S.MAGIC: 4 HEALING: 5 OFFENSE: 1 _________________________ 2. Angela¬Carlie¬Duran ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ An OK party. Duran of course will be doing most of the attacking, and Angela will be doing the offensive spells, and Carlie (like always) will heal. Duran should be Swordmaster, Angela as Rune Master/Magus, and Carlie as Necromancer. You'll need walnuts. A.MAGIC: 5 S.MAGIC: 3.5 HEALING: 5 OFFENSE: 1 _________________________ 3. Angela¬Carlie¬Kevin ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Another good party. You have an excellent attacker (Kevin), excellent spells (Angela), and an excellent healer (Carlie). Kevin should be Dervish/DeathHand since you won't need a healer but it's up to you and you should choose a class that contains the skills you like, Angela a Runemaster/Magus, and Carlie should be Necromancer so she can lower the enemies' stats. Lovely. A.MAGIC: 5 S.MAGIC: 2 HEALING: 5 OFFENSE: 2 _________________________ 4. Angela¬Carlie¬Hawk ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ This is another good team. Hawk should be doing the main attacks, Angela the main spell caster, and Carlie the healer. Hawk should be Rogue or Nightblade (Wanderer offensive is too low), Angela a Runemaster/Magus, and Carlie a Necromancer/Bishop/maybe even Dark Shaman. It depends because if you choose to go with Rogue then you'll need Necromancer because Hawk won't be able to lower enemy's stats. A.MAGIC: 5 S.MAGIC: 3 HEALING: 5 OFFENSE: 1.5 _________________________ 5. Angela¬Lise¬Duran ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Below average party but playable. Angela as Runemaster, Lise as Starlancer, and Duran as Lord/Paladin. Duran and Lise will be doing the attacking and Angela with the spells along with Lise (Marduke). Duran will also be doing the healing and Lise will be raising stats. Personally I would go with Lord even though his offense will be kinda of weak because multitargeting healing is a necessity IMO and Saint Saber isn't very good. A.MAGIC: 5 S.MAGIC: 3.5 HEALING: 3 OFFENSE: 2 _________________________ 6. Angela¬Lise¬Kevin ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Much better than the one above. Kevin should be Warrior Monk, Lise a Star Lancer, and Angela a Runemaster/Magus. Kevin and Lise will be attacking, and Kevin will be able to heal without sacrificing anything unlike Duran. Lise will raise stats and summon Marduke. Angela will be doing the spells as always. A.MAGIC: 5 S.MAGIC: 2 HEALING: 3 OFFENSE: 3 _________________________ 7. Angela¬Lise¬Hawk ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Pretty bad as you don't have any healers in your party. Hawk and Lise will have good attack power, and Angela will have the spells. Hawk should be NightBlade/Ninja Master, Lise as StarLancer, and Angela as Rune Master. Make sure you have a lot of healing items. A.MAGIC: 5 S.MAGIC: 4 HEALING: 1 OFFENSE: 2.5 _________________________ 8. Angela¬Duran¬Hawk ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ I'm sure you get the routine by now. Anyway, this team is a bit better since you'll have a healer. Duran as a Paladin/Lord, Hawkeye as a Ninja Master/Nightblade and Angela as RuneMaster/Magus. You know what to do... A.MAGIC: 5 S.MAGIC: 3.5 HEALING: 3 OFFENSE: 3 _________________________ 9. Angela¬Duran¬Kevin ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Ahh..No more sacrificing. Duran definitely as SwordMaster with his sabers, Kevin as Warrior Monk with his multitargeting healing ability and Angela as Rune Master/Magus. Duran and Kevin are the attackers while Angela casts offensive spells. Not bad. A.MAGIC: 5 S.MAGIC: 2.5 HEALING: 3 OFFENSE: 3.5 _________________________ 10. Angela¬Kevin¬Hawk ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Great team. Two good attackers, one healer and one powerful spell caster. Kevin should be Warrior Monk, Hawk NightBlade/NM, and Angela a Rune Master. A.MAGIC: 5 S.MAGIC: 3 HEALING: 3 OFFENSE: 4 _________________________ 11. Carlie¬Lise¬Duran ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Pretty good, you'll have an excellent healer, 2 good attackers, Sabers, and some good spells. Carlie a Necromancer definitely, she can lower stats and heal, Duran as a SwordMaster with his Sabers, and Lise as a StarLancer as she'll raise your stats and has Marduke. A.MAGIC: 3 S.MAGIC: 5 HEALING: 5 OFFENSE: 2 _________________________ 12. Carlie¬Lise¬Kevin ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Even better. Kevin as Warrior Monk/Dervish/or whatever because you already have a healer, Lise as Starlancer and Carlie as Necromancer. Carlie will heal and lower stats, Lise will raise stats and summon Marduke, and Kevin will just kick ass. A.MAGIC: 3 S.MAGIC: 4 HEALING: 5 OFFENSE: 3.5 _________________________ 13. Carlie¬Lise¬Hawk ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Another good team. Carlie as Necromancer, Lise as Starlancer, and Hawkeye as Nightblade/Rogue. Same tactics as above with Hawkeye and Lise being the main attacker this time. Plus, he has all of those nice skills. A.MAGIC: 3 S.MAGIC: 4 HEALING: 5 OFFENSE: 3 "Alex Slatin" <firstname.lastname@example.org> writes: Judging from my own experience, a party with Lise as a Fenrir Knight, Hawk as a Wanderer, and Carlie as a Bishop is pretty danged effective if you know the quick-spellcasting trick (pack a lot of walnuts, though). Lise takes care of the stat-lowering angle, and Lamia Naga seems to have more raw power than Marduke, which partially makes up for the lack of status changes. Hawk can repeatedly quick-cast TransShape and attack with Half-Vanish, Lunatic and Poison Bubble (in that order for best effect). As for Carlie, Turn Undead is DAMN effective on enemies in the final stretch of the available story arcs (Deathjester and Jagan are both undead, and so is the Carmilla Queen that Jagan brings along). Your approach is also pretty good (and probably even better), but I just thought you might not have considered this one yet. _________________________ 14. Carlie¬Duran¬Kevin ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Another OK team. Duran and Kevin will be the main attackers, and Carlie will heal. Duran will be SwordMaster (Sabers), Kevin should be a Dervish/Warrior Monk but it's up to you, and Carlie a Necromancer (stats down). A.MAGIC: 2 S.MAGIC: 3 HEALING: 5 OFFENSE: 3.5 _________________________ 15. Carlie¬Duran¬Hawk ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Pretty much the same as the above, although your sacrificing attack power for more skills. Carlie a Necromancer, Duran a Swordmaster, and Hawkeye Nightblade/ Wanderer. Carlie heals and lower stats, Duran cast sabers, and Hawkeye along with Duran attacks. Hawkeye also has those extra skills that are good to cast once in a while (Reflect Magic, energy Ball, Trans Shape, etc.) A.MAGIC: 2.5 S.MAGIC: 3.5 HEALING: 5 OFFENSE: 3 _________________________ 16. Carlie¬Kevin¬Hawk ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ This was the first team I chose. Very good team because you have 2 strong fighters, and an excellent healer. I would make Carlie a Necromancer/Bishop, Hawk a Nightblade/Wanderer, and Kevin a Dervish/Warrior Monk (Moon or Leaf sabers respectively). A.MAGIC: 2.5 S.MAGIC: 3 HEALING: 5 OFFENSE: 4 _________________________ 17. Lise¬Kevin¬Hawk ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Wow. A great team, Lise a Starlancer, Kevin a Warrior Monk, and Hawk a Nightblade/Ninja Master. Everyone will be attacking, Kevin will heal, Lise will raise stats, and Hawk will lower stats. Possibly my fav team. A.MAGIC: 3 S.MAGIC: 4 HEALING: 3 OFFENSE: 4.5 <email@example.com> writes: i have a party suggestion 4 u. It's constructed with Kevin(Dervish), Hawk(NightBlade),and Lise(Dragon Master,Fenrir Knight).This Party is the ultimate in stat downs. The only problems are Hawk, which can't multi-target, but he gets Split-image slice,which beats any spell i know other than Ancient.Lise is another thing: you chose what she goes for, but it's really a question of more strenght or multi-target stat downs. Either way, she's great, and Dragon Fang Spear hurts bad, and looks cool. As For Kevin... it doesn't matter. He is the ultimate fighter IMO. Go for Kevin as main char. because ArchDevil isn't a final boss.He's THE Final boss. _________________________ 18. Lise¬Kevin¬Duran ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Another fun team. Lise as Starlancer, Kevin as Warrior Monk, and Duran as Swordmaster. Lise will raise stats and she has Marduke (great summon), Kevin will heal, and Duran will cast Sabers. Everyone will have great attack power. A.MAGIC: 2 S.MAGIC: 3.5 HEALING: 3 OFFENSE: 4 _________________________ 19. Lise¬Duran¬Hawk ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Not very good but can be playable... Lise as Starlancer, Duran as Lord, and Hawk as Nightblade/Ninja Master. Lise will raise stats and cast Marduke once again, Duran will be the healer, and Hawk will lower enemy stats. Everyone will have good attack power. A.MAGIC: 2.5 S.MAGIC: 4 HEALING: 3 OFFENSE: 4 _________________________ 20. Kevin¬Hawk¬Duran ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Great team offensive wise. Kevin should be Warrior Monk, Duran a Swordmaster, Hawk a Nightblade/Ninja Warrior. Kevin is the main healer, Duran casts Sabers, and Hawk will lower enemy stats. Everyone will have great attack power. I like this team. A.MAGIC: 2 S.MAGIC: 4 HEALING: 3 OFFENSE: 5 _____________________________________________________________________________________________ VI. F. A. Q. ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Q: When I'm in the Moonlight forest (or anywhere with clouds), I can't see anything but clouds! How do you fix this? A: If your using an emulator, switch to a 32-bit video mode so that transparency will be enabled. Q: When can I change class?
A: When your at level 18, find a mana stone and you will be able to change classes. You can then change again at level 38, but will require a special item. Please look at the character analysis to see what you need. _____________________________________________________________________________________________ VII.
