Rastora Forest

Written by Uninvented

Seeing the Forest Through the Trees

Rastora Forest is located NE of Kiribay and South of Sein. While traveling on the World Map, the forest looks like it is a small square patch surrounded by trees.

The enemies here are somewhat strong for a Level-5,  two-person party. If you're party is Level 6, Rastora won't be easy, but it will be manageable. At Level 7, it's pretty much a breeze.

The enemies in Rastora Forest hit hard and paralyze. You need to hit hard & fast yourself and have a good defense. Did you Reinforce your armor?

There are no maps or detailed explanations for the forest. It is a straightforward path.

You will meet up with Kurius again. He has more Boost Manuals for you.

The House at the End of the Lane

There is a house at the end of the Forest. The Guild in Sein will give you a Quest to defeat an enemy here. That's the only thing happening with this house.

Doesn't the house have a familiarity to it?  (I wonder if the Brutal Messiaen is the demon that attacked Loka's parents and the children 10 years ago? Or maybe it's a descendant of it? Or maybe this isn't the house we saw 10 years ago.  Ah, my mind is wandering too deep into the game.)

The Quest is for Mountain Hut Demon. Your Duty is to slay the "Brutal Messiaen." (Although, I'm not sure why it would be called 'mountain' instead of 'forest.')

Brutal Messiaen
50 Exp
20G
Sharp Talon
(Plus 800G from the Sein Guild for completing the Quest)

You may not have Quon Technique by now, but you can easily get it. You should get it.

Follow these steps:

(1) Go to the town of Sein. Speak to the man in the house right next to the Tavern. Then go into the Tavern and speak with the Manager. (This gives you "clearance" to explore Elda Tower. If you don't do these things, a guard in the tower won't let you pass.)

(2) Go into Elda Tower and go through the east door. You have to solve two puzzles along the way, but at the end of it all is the Quon Technique.  Fortunately, there isn't one enemy along that path. So go grab the Q-Technique in the Treasure chest! (You can find help with the puzzles in the "Elda Tower" section.)

Now that you have Quon Technique, equip it to Sarna. It allows her Magic "Ice" spell to multi-attack. That will be an incredible help for your team since the battle with the "Brutal Messiaen" is your first "un-boss" battle.

Loka does well attacking with "Thunderball." Fortunately, the demon uses heal and buff spells. That gives you a couple rounds to get a head-start on attacking.

The Tina Technique you gain from Rastora Forest is a good fit for Loka.

Immediately north of the house is the exit from the Forest.

When you're done with Rastora Forest, you will have new & needed materials for Reinforcements. You know what to do. Come back if you need more mats, and I suspect you will.
