Act 1 - Part 3

December 9

Pick your party members. If you have been fishing, your rank should be promoted by now, which lets you can get a new fishing rod from Annabelle at the general store.

Make your preparation and leave through Ymir Canyon. Select two members from Class VII and one guest character (Claire, Sharon or Toval) to bring with you. You won't have the option to select your party member after the decision is set. This is the only part of the game that you can use Sharon, so if you don't bring Sharon with you, then you will miss the opportunity to use her until you start another playthrough. A suggested party would be Alisa and Sharon because Sharon has some very powerful crafts, and you can use Alisa as a CP battery which makes the duo a very strong pair. If you want the special accessory from Toval or Claire, then skip using Sharon, because you will need link EXP at level 3 to get bonus accessory for later.

Ebel Highway

You will end up at Ebel Highway 2. Pick up the Flame Tongue quartz near Valimar. Then head directly to Legram by going south. The game won't let you go fully explore Ebel Highway yet, so pick up the rest of the treasure chest for later.

Nightmare Tip
StackingFrom this point onward, it becomes possible to do Parameter Stacking. Depending on the bosses you are to fight, different combinations will be used. For detailed references, check the Stacking part of the Nightmare Strategies Section at the end of this guide.
Task EquipmentWith Stacking available, you must begin keeping at all times specific pieces of armor/boots to fulfill particular purposes. In this case, keeping 1 or 2 Jackets for both genders and some Breeze and Cloud Shoes (all of them bought at Lake Lacrima), will begin to help you build your Task Equipment.

Watch the event scene at the Bracer Guild. Then go to Aprikoze Inn and speak to Weiber behind the counter, he will give you a copy of Gambler Jack II - Chapter 6. Then take the backdoor to outside and speak to Old Man Bem, he will teach you the Seafood Pilaf recipe. Head to the general store and purchase Gambler Jack Reprint #4, and stock up on new equipment. You could also find some of the Thors Academy students in Legram, there is Vivi at the Church, and Casper at the Training School. If you go to the harbor, you can find a fishing spot near Klaus. When you are ready, speak to Klaus, this will take you Lohengrin Castle. Climb up the hill and go inside Lohengrin Castle, you will fight a boss shortly after.

Boss Skills1. Poison Breath. Area (L). Inflicts Poison.
2. Tail Swipe. Area (L). Push back.
This boss is quite easy, compare to what you have previously fought. The boss has some strong area attack skill that causes poison, however, you should able to defeat this boss before it becomes a hassle. Since the boss has a very poor slash resistant, you can easily deal a lot of damage to it with a Slash type character like Laura and Rean. The boss is also weak against Mirage magic, which Emma has already equipped. Status ailments also work pretty well against the boss. If you have Sharon on your party, this boss will become super easy, because she has an area healing craft that removes all status ailments and high damage crafts.

Afterwards, Laura and Emma will join your party. Now head to the Bracer Guild located at the southeast area of town. Speak to Miles, he will hand you some side quests.

Q9
Quest NameArseid School Bout 2 / 続 - 門下生との手合わせ
Go to the Arseid School Training Hall and speak to Klaus or Gaveli at the arena. Members of the Arseid School wants a rematch. Select the first choice to fight them in a duel.

This boss fight can be easy or tough. Each student is very weak against status ailments, Laura has a good chance of causing faint on them and with Rean's Gale, you pretty much Seal them to prevent them from doing any action. The students are also easily blind. So if you have some way of inflicting those status ailments, then use it on them. If the student HP gets low, they will be starting using this buff that will heal them and boost their strength greatly. During this phase, it can get really dangerous if they use their area skills it can do over 5000 damage. You could be instantly K.O.if you multiple students using the same skill on you. You can cheese through this fight by using your S-Craft with everyone, but you might want to drag this battle out if you intend on analyzing them.
Afterwards, you will be rewarded with a Heal quartz.

Quest NameEbel Rebel / エベル街道の手配魔獣
Head town through Ebel Highway. You will find the quest monster located at Ebel Highway 2 at the very north area near the entrance of Ebel Highway 3. Before you fight this boss, it is highly recommended you are all equipped with a faint resistant accessory before you start this fight.

2. Roar. Heal + Str/Spd 50%.
3. Charge Slam. Takes 2 turns to activate. Inflicts Faint. Can be Cancelled.
Suggested FormationSpread 1, Spread 2
This boss has a ton of HP and is also crazy strong. The boss will use a skill called drumming which will heal itself and greatly buff its attack, defense, and speed. Allowing it to strike you multiple times, this means the boss can wipe your party real fast. Not only it hits really hard, but it can also cause faint on your party with each attack. The worst part is when the boss' buff is about to expire it will use a skill call Hard Hit which can hurt each member for nearly 7000 damage. Which makes this boss harder than anything you have encountered so far. The most effective way of killing this boss is to rely on flame type arts. It does the most amount of damage without using Crafts. You can also use Overdrive for an instant magic cast. Once you take out about half of the boss' HP, you can have your party spam their S-Craft before the boss has a chance to heal itself from its buff.
When you defeated the boss, the game will give you the option to instantly go back to Legram to report the status. Go back and report to Miles at the Bracer Guild to finish the quest.

This boss is pretty easy compared to some of the mini boss you have previously encountered. Every monster here can do an area attack skill that hits the entire map and inflict mute on your party. Use Laura's S-Craft or her Area Skills such as Brilliant Spin to wipe out the smaller mobs quickly. Once that's done, focus on the boss with Arts from Emma and attacks/crafts from Laura.

Follow the south path, when you see a pair of stairs, take the north one path, you will find a monster chest at the center of the map. A Scent quartz is found inside. Now backtrack and go to the stairs at the south end, you will find a pair of Blue Scaled Shoes in a treasure box. Then follow all the way to the west side of the map to see a treasure chest and a switch. Open the chest to find an EP Charge II, then push the switch to raise the water up. Now take the path at the center, it should take to the northwest area to the boss.

This is very similar to the previous incarnation of Tildawns that you have previously encountered. This is probably the easiest Tildawn, it does exactly the same thing by spamming an area attack skill, which causes Mute. This fight will only bring you a lot of trouble if you bring a whole party that is magic based. Just make sure you cancel the boss's magic casting by using a character with Impede on their crafts ability. If you to cheese through this fight, you can use Rean, turn on Overdrive and use Motivate twice and have the entire party use their S-Craft.

After you have defeated the boss, take the portal to exit out of Aqua Shrine. Collect all the treasure chest in Ebel Highway 3 if you haven't yet. Then take the northeast exit to South Kreuzen Highway.

South Kreuzen Highway

Keep moving until you reach the bridge for a short scene. Then head to the northwest corner to find a fishing spot and a Hydro Cannon quartz on the opposite end. Then continue north, and at the northeast corner, you will find some Sepith Mass in a treasure chest. Then go to the north region of the map, when the path split, you can find a Tearal Balm on the west side, and a Tauros Master Quartz in the monster chest on the east side. Then return to the center path, and take the north exit to Bareahard.

Going to Bareahard will automatically advance the story, so make sure you have finished all the side quests from Legram before you enter.

There is a list of things for you to do in Bareahard, you should head to the clothing store (Valenty Tailoring on Artisan's Street), purchase the Patterned Shirt and the Leather Sandal equipment from there. The Patterned Shirt has the highest evasion bonus in the game (20%), which is the best equipment for players that want to make a dodge tank type character for later (Fie and Sharon can easily hit a 100% dodge rate with these making them immune to physical attacks for end game.) The Leather Sandal has a very high speed rating at this point of the game.

Nightmare Tip

Take the chance to buy the following accessories from Turner's at Artisan Street:

Red Pendulum X3 (You have one from the 'A Cry For Help' Hidden quest on Act 1 - Part 1)
Green Pendulum X3 (There's one in the Underground Waterway)
Blue Pendulum X4
Yellow Pendulum X4
Black Pendulum X4

Each cost 3000 Mira. In total, you'll need 54000 Mira. Although a time-consuming method, you can have Sharon make Tri-colored Onigiri to gather the necessary amount of Mira. This will ensure you get all possible negative status/debuffs covered.

Then go inside Turner's Jewelers (Northwest building on Artisan's Street) and speak to Colette. Leave, the building and take the north exit to the Central Plaza. Go inside the Sorciere Restaurant at the northeast corner. Then speak to Calmin by the northwest counter, he will teach you the Fluffy Pancake recipe. Exit out of the restaurant and take the east exit to Station Street. Speak to the maid, Saffron near Christie's Galleria, she will give you a copy of Gambler Jack II - Chapter 7. Then go inside Christie's Galleria and go to the second floor to the bookstore (Fortnum Books) and purchase the Gambler Jack Reprint #5, 6. Then speak to Theresia by the bench. Then work on the hidden side quest listed below.

Follow the east path, and go all the way to the northwest corner. You will find a Green Pendulum in a treasure chest and a switch. Press the switch to unlock the gate near the entrance. Go there to Underground Waterway 2. Go directly north to find some Sepith in a treasure chest. Then take the west path to the center of the map for a boss fight.

There is a ton of Dromes here and they all can cast magic that deals a ton of damage. This is one of the easiest to spot to farm Tactical Bonus by canceling each of the Drome's spell casting by using a craft with the Impede function (Rean, Machias, Alisa, Fie), allowing you to get the Tactician trophy. If you find the situation too dangerous, then wipe out the smaller Dromes with your S-Craft or an area spell. The main boss is mostly using a skill that weakens your ADF so it can deal a ton of damage with its spells, just cancel the boss' arts before that happens.

Buff up your party's strength and spam all of your S-Craft on Duvalie. If anyone gets K.O. revive them with Zeram Powder to get a 100 CP and spam your S-Craft immediately until she is K.O.

A really easy boss, because of it's poor faint and sleep resistance, you can easily inflict faint or sleep on it. The boss only has hit single targets, so there isn't anything to watch out for.
Afterwards, you will return to town with some quartz as your reward.

This is an unwinnable boss fight, but to meet the bonus condition for the 3 extra AP. You need to reduce the boss' HP below 50% within 40 turns. The problem is this guy has very high defense, you will barely hurt him with regular attacks. The best method is to buff yourself up with Jusis and spam all your S-Crafts, if all your CP is gone, then use arts on him. If the boss manages to cast his arts it can deal 17000 damage to each member which can be an instant wipe. So make sure you have someone cancel his art casting before you get killed. Once you have done a certain amount of damage, the boss will use his S-Craft to instantly wipe your party.

After that, you will be facing another mech battle. however, this battle is unwinnable. After this fight, the chapter will end.
