Act 2 - Part 1

Watch the opening sequence, the guest character with the highest Link EXP (Must be level 3) will give you an powerful accessory.

CharacterAccessoryEffects
ClaireCerulean HeartsACC +100%, Critical Rate +10%
SharonBlack VirtueAttacks/Craft can cancel arts (90% chance). Delay +6
TovalQuick Caliber SReduce casting time by a third

Read the quest list at the computer terminal, and assemble your party. Gaius will be a mandatory member.

Nightmare Tip

If you need to do the Tri-colored Onigiri trick, use Emma.

From now on spend mira and sepith to deck only those characters you intend to bring with you to the Act boss. Do so only for a party of 4 (i.e. don't bother with the supports unless you plan to use them) and switch only the supports around so they get Exp too. This way you'll minimize mira and sepith usage and still manage to update your equipment/quartz. Whenever the story forces you to use specific characters, simply swap armor/boots/quartz around. Try to save as much mira and sepith as possible until further notice.

This trial boss doesn't have much to it. It can hit one target really hard which can also cause AT Delay. If you want to breeze through this battle, you can come in with full CP and use your S-Craft with both characters, it should do enough damage to wipe out the boss. If not, you can try using Arts from Sara, which can deal a ton of damage due to the boss' poor elemental magic defense.

After you pick up all the treasure chest in the map, speak to the Soldiers near the tank at the southwest corner. Then head to the east end of the map, near the crater, an event will automatically occur and the quest will end.
ClientGeneral Craig
RewardPanzer Goggles, 3000 Mira, 4 AP

After this event, head back to Garrelia Fortress, you will notice there is a giant monster near the Crater. These are known as Cryptid, defeating them will reward you a special quartz that let you use Lost Arts (The ultimate type of magic). These monsters are recommended for a level 100 party, but they can be defeated at level 75+ with the correct setup. If you want to push your luck, you can always give it a shot. Check the Optional Bosses section for more information regarding them. Ignore this part for later, if you don't stand a chance. The best time to begin the hunt on an N3 run is when Jusis hits Lv 81 and gets Platinum Shield. Until then, too risky. Better even to wait until all 5 are available (Ch 2-3).

Head out to Garrelia Byroad 2 on the east exit. Travel all the way to Garrelia Byroad 1, and go to where the Trial Chest is, at the northeast corner. You will find Emily and Nicolas. Speak to them to recruit them to Courageous. Accept their offer, and help them install the relay machine. It's marked on the map with a green exclamation mark.

When the boss' HP get low, spam your S-Craft to kill it before it gets the opportunity to heal itself.

This is going to be the easiest Trial Chest Boss you will ever face. You get a full party for this fight, and each golem is very slow and super weak to magic. You can even wipe out all the boss with two full powered S-Craft. The Golem is also very fragile to status ailments like blind and seal.

Then go all the way to the south end, it will take you outside, you will find a Volcanic Rain Quartz in a treasure chest, and then return to the previous area. Go to the north path, you will find a Pandora Master Quartz in a monster chest. Then to the east, you will find some U-Materials in a treasure chest. Then heal yourself with the Orbment station, and go to the north end of the map to fight the boss.

Boss Skills1. Roar. Calls 2-3 Spiders.
2. Web spit. Line (M). Inflicts Mov Down.
A returning boss from CS, that has been heavily weakened compared to it's CS counterpart. The boss has a very simple attack pattern, there are some minion spiders with it, if you defeated a spider, it will try to call for more spiders in battle. Which caps out at four, so if there is no spider for the boss to summon, then it will use its attack if not then it keeps calling for more. The boss mostly uses a single target attack that causes poison. One of the things that make this boss very easy is the poor status resistance it has, you can easily cause Confused, Sleep or Faint on it. If you still haven't obtained the Tactician trophy, this battle is an easy place to farm the multi-kill bonus each time when the boss summons. Allowing you to easily pass the 4.0 - 5.0x bonus.

Afterwards, Clara will join Courageous. Return to Courageous, and visits Clara at the Hangar (1F), she will let you know about the EX-Orb function, which allows you to equip special types of Quartz for Valimar. The game will also unlock the Awakener's Call ability, which allows Rean to summon Valimar in battle for a few turns.

If this is your second playthrough or higher, return to the same spot where the Giant Spider Boss (Ginosha-Zanak) is, you will find a copy of Black Records #1.

Report your status using the Computer Terminal at the bridge area. When you finished everything you need to do for today, speak to Towa and select the second option "Commence Operation" to advance the story.

Nightmare Tip
If you got Sharon's Black Virtue at the beginning of the Act, make it a permanent fixture on Rean. This accessory, coupled with Impede 1-2 will make Rean's Arc Slash incredibly effective.

The Hector unit's weakness is it's Head during its idle stance, and during its attack stance, will be the body. While Drakkhen unit's weakness is its arms regardless of which stance it its.

Using Elliot's Resounding Beat will regen all that HP in a few turns. The boss can also summon additional mobs, if that happens, wipe them out immediately.
