Forest of Confusion

This is the first dungeon that can be a bit confusing (no pun intended). 😛

Follow the path and go west on the first intersection. Walk north and go west again after a short walk. Keep going west, and ignore the path leading north for now.

Follow the western path go get the first treasure here. Head back to the intersection and walk north now, but go northwest as soon as you reach the next intersection.

Follow the path, then go south a bit and keep heading west as far as you can to get to the next treasure.

From the treasure go back to the intersection, then south, but west again after a short distance.

It looks like a dead end, but if you walk south into the woods from the dead end you will find a very well hidden treasure. You can’t see the chest; just hit the button when you can’t go any further into the woods.

Now go back and all the way south. Then walk east a bit to get another treasure. Now walk west past the intersection you came down, and go all the way north past the intersection and then west for yet another treasure.

Back at the intersection, go west and follow the path all the way north and east to the Porter. Activate it and collect the last treasure in this dungeon southwest of the Porter.

Heal you party members before you go north to the next screen because you are about to fight the first boss battle of the game.

BOSS: Asty (+2 Familiars)
boss-asty1
Stats: Asty = 320 HP, Familiars = 200 HP
Skills: Blaze –> single target fire attack
Sleep Mist –> multi target sleep spell
Lightning –> front or back row lightning attack
Reward: 100 EXP | 420 Gold

It doesn’t need a real strategy; just kill Asty first with everything you’ve got.

Then kill the Familiars.

Make sure to steal the Spirit Crystal with Milka before you kill Asty. (You may need some tries to be able to steal the item from her though.)

After the battle you will be automatically transported to the Mave Shrine.

Elysha joins your team and your next destination is the Port Town of Nex which you can reach by ship from where the game started – Dea Town.

If you want you can buy a better armor for Elysha before you board the ship. You also want to equip the Treasure of Light to one of your characters if you haven’t done so already.
