• Tried it once. I quit after finishing the main story line in Normal. I didn’t notice any notable updates (nor does it look like it updates often) so I didn’t really stick around for post-game activity. It’s really, really sizable in disk space, and size is not something I can squander on my potato of an Android tablet.

    I guess the one good thing…[Read more]

  • Where would be the best areas to get this? Some areas seem to have better drop rates of this than others, but as far as I can tell, metal monsters (or the entire area where they all spawn at, like certain islands or Envy Shrine) never seem to want to drop this…

  • If you have room to, you should only have 2 types of weapons for each party member: one for clearing content and the other for farming purposes. The farming weapons should have Steal (and I forget which other stats apply in this game… if there are EXP or GOLD effects they’d go here too); the weapons for smashing things should all have Critical,…[Read more]

  • I never did finish that particular game. Yes, I am old enough to not only have played but OWNED (well, still own) the original, as well as a working NES (not the more updated remakes, but a bona fide original console). And yes, the grinding was so tedious for me as well I had to resort to Game Genie codes just to cut it down a few notches, though…[Read more]

    Just keep moving on with the story, you’ll be able to swap out Phelia’s pet at some point. Sorry, I forgot when does that occur, exactly.

  • Maidame Curie stops asking for money just before the normal end area, I think. If you don’t pay when she first asks you to, you can always pay later at the Forgotten Sanctuary (it costs more though, due to the additional late fee). You just get bulbs in return, nothing too major.


    I didn’t properly count how many payments you have to make in…[Read more]

  • tip: Don’t actually use your Gleamstones on the Lithographs. You get free 200 ATK weapons from completing the trophy rewards. Unless you IAP for more Gleamstones, you’re better off saving them for more important things, like the two doors in the Ancient Storehouse.


    Unless those 180 atk weapons come with rare effects like Crit. I can’t say that…[Read more]

  • Using this trick has reeeeaally cut down on the weapon farming time. Thanks for that.

    You kind of need this trick for the post-game, because using the normal Can Ticket crafting hardly ever gives you the good effects you want to farm (1% for crit?! seriously?!). So the moment you find some of the rarer effects to grind up (SPD, etc), you’re going…[Read more]

  • If you plan on hanging around for post-game, buy the Green Key so you can take on the Milialance Tower.

    Some treasures are blocked by arrows and require the Heavy Card.

    And well, the Attract Card is for hardcore grinding.


    Other than those three, I can’t think of much else that are must-buys.

  • Believe it or not, I actually used both for my late-game party lineups. Actually, I used both Hero and Dragonite since I got their second-tier growth plates, just so everyone has a unique weapon. 😉 See, it’s a habit for Exe-Create to give one of each “ultimate weapons and armor” just before the final battle so I wanted to make sure everyone had…[Read more]

  • I use strikethrough whenever I have to apply edits and corrections for posts (such as this one), to oops out stuff that is no longer relevant due to new information or being mistaken about things. Thanks for it, though.  🙂

  • inkwarrior replied to the topic Plate please plate in the forum Dragon Lapis 6 months ago

    Nearly all growth plates I’ve found as random rare drops from monsters. You’ll find the starting job plates in the beginning areas, the last-tier job plates in the end-game areas (I found lots while trying to get through Imprevia Fortress and so on), and I don’t know which areas have monsters that drop the second tier job plates, sorry.

    The only…[Read more]

  • I fixed parts of this guide today to address leveling dangers I hadn’t noticed before until now. And made it look a little nicer, although there are some touch ups I can’t do due to the new forum code (I can’t do the strikethrough effect without knowing the specific code, for example). And linked to my stealing guide from this one, in case you…[Read more]

  • Hi laurelie,


    When you go to the subforum that you want to post a question to, scroll down to the bottom of the page. You should see a space where you can create a topic (title, contents, etc) followed by the Submit button.

    Hi Laurelie,


    You cannot sail directly to the Eeth Tribe (Onykiss)’s place. You have to park the ship due west of the city, where there are no rocks blocking the land, and walk east from there.


    From the map shown here, the best area to park the ship would be a bit above the F in the words “Forgotten Port”: 

  • SO = self-only. Other acronyms you may see in active skill descriptions include:

    1E = 1 Enemy

    1A = 1 Ally

    AA = All allies

    AE = All enemies

    EC = Enemy column

    ER = Enemy row

  • Question: can anyone learn the Angel job, or is it person-restricted (like only Lucas has Hero job, and Iria has Dragonite job)?

  • Do you have too many Growth Plates in your inventory? Clear some that you aren’t using and try again.
