Old Cave tipSent in by Alex Schwagle at The Unofficial World of Nintendo!!! Stuck in the Old Cave? If so, then this is for you. Go to the room with the collapsing bridges. Go in the bottom middle staircase. Walk on the rocks. You will float and will be able to walk all over.
Where is the Old Man in the Ghost Cave who gives you the Real Hope Ruby?Sent in by Addison Sani The old man who gives you the hope ruby is not in the ghost cave but in the old mine north of medan. You go there after the foke hope ruby is broken (after some fight I don't remember which one). But after the ruby is broken go back to Medan head to the north until you see the entrance to a cave make your way through the cave. (Which wouldn't be the hardest thing in the game) and when you see a door go in to it (it's the only one in the cave) talk to the old man and he'll allow you to go and get the ruby in the next room.
Visit an inn for freeSent in by James Frendo-Cumbo If you don't have enough money, you can still visit an inn for free! Just have less than what the keeper asks for, and say that you want to stay. You get a free stay!
How do you get the red gem from the old man?Sent in by Albern Connelly at The Unofficial World of Nintendo!!! Any time after you've gone to the Green tower and got everything go back to Medan. (Remember the old Gem Mine?) go to the gem mine and talk to the old man. you ask him for the Red Sapphire. He says that his Red Sapphire is the real Hope Ruby and that he could wish on it and make the sinistrals disappear and never come back. So he will let you go into the room behind him where you get the Red Sapphire from one of the chests. Also you might wanna get the items in the other chests.
Find ElfeaSent in by Mighty Bomb After you defeat the water ferry thing in the red tower, go to the bottom floor in the red tower to get the last gem stone then go to the blue tower put a blue gem at the pedestal at the top and repeat for the green tower putting the green gem then the red gem in the red last to find Elfea.
How to beat Daos and Gaurd DaosSent in by Brent Pike Before you go to fight Daos, go buy LOTS of Potion, Miricle, and Smoke Balls (so that you don't have to waste HP and MP). First, have Jerin equip everyone with the Magic Mirror. Every time that it's Jerin's turn, have her re-equip everyone with the mirror (use this pattern: Hero, Aguro, Jerin). Use Hero and Aguro to attack Daos (if you need to, have Hero give himself, Aguro, or Jerin more HP). after Daos is defeated, all the Sinistrals will join together. Have Jerin equip everyone with Magic Mirrors (this may take longer because Lufia is with you now). Use Hero and Aguro to hit Guard Daos, and Lufia to attack it with magic.
Get four times the experience pointsSent in by GeNoCiDeO@aol.com at The Unofficial World of Nintendo!!! After you beat the game, once you go to the option try again, you click on it, and it asks for you name. Type in capital letters TIATO and you get 4x ex points on that character. For example, the slimes usually give you 4 experience points, now they give you 16 experience points.
Might Sword, Armor, and Helmet locationSent in by Ben Chua The Might Sword can be gotten from Hydra, Might Armor can be gotten from Fire Plate, Might Helmet can be gotten from Barient, all after a battle.
How to get to ElfreaTo be able to proceed to Elfrea, you must first solve the Three Tower Puzzle. You will be told that the order to complete the Towers is Blue Green Red. This does not mean that you must explore the Towers in that order, but rather the order to place the colored Jade stone on the corresponding Pedestal.
Be teleported to ElfreaExplore the Blue Tower and find the Green Jade. Explore the Green Tower and find a broken Red Sapphire. Explore the Red Tower and defeat the Ghost. After the Ghost is defeated a new are in the basement will reveal the Green Jade. Now return to the Cave near Medan and talk to the Old Man in the Cave. He will give you access to his Treasure Room where you will find the Red Sapphire which is has hidden for safe keeping. Now return to the Towers in the order specified (Blue Green Red). Find the Blue Pedestal in the Blue Tower and use the Blue Jade, then Green, then Red. When the Red Sapphire has been put in place, you will be teleported to Elfrea.
Pirate's Room switch orderThe order to push the floor switches outside the Pirate's Room of the Pirate Tower is: *------* | 1 4 | | | | 3 2 | *------* then step on the switch outside the door and the door will open.
How do I rescue the King from Sheran castle?After you check out Sheran, go back to Alekia and report to the king and commander of the Alekian army. Then go to Alekian Inn and speak to Lufia. Lufia is still mad at you for leaving her but she soon comes to her senses. Leave Alekia to go back to Sheran. Lufia will follow you and join your party. Then, as you are going through the cave to go to Sheran, you will find Danil, who will give you the key to Sheran castle. You then will be able to unlocked the locked doors. In one locked room, there is a switch which will open a trapdoor to the dungeon. You will find this trapdoor by going into one of the rooms at the top left or right corners of the castle. Go all the way down and you will meet the King and the other prisoners.
Where do I find the Maberia?The Maberia can be found near the Exit of the North Cave by Treck. The ship is guarded by three Goblins. These Goblins are very tough so I would recommend building your parties levels up to 9. After you defeat the Goblins, you will sail the Maberia back to Treck.
I can't find Aguro after he leaves us in LorbeniaGo to the top store of the big shop in Lorbenia. A young man will steal Lufia's money and run away. After catching this young man, go to the Inn and talk to the Inn keeper. Stay the night and in the morning, Aguro will find you.
How do I defeat the Apprentice?The Apprentice is very hard to beat mostly because you fight him one on one with Hero. Be sure to use the 2 Mid Arrows found on the top floor of the Tower that the Apprentice is in. These together will do about 100 points of damage. Also equip the Hero with the Sonic Ring to Increase his Agility. Cast the Great Potion to add more HP to the Hero's Max and Power Potion to Increase the Hero's strength. Whenever you are hurt, be sure to heal yourself quickly because the Apprentice can easily do 30 points of damage with his Jolt spell.
I can't find Reyna, the little girl that ran away to the ghost cave!There is one room in the cave where on the left and right sides are land bridges. And below the bridges are treasure chests. When you try to cross then land bridges, a fall through a hole. Instead, go in between the land bridges (Above the treasure chests) and walk across. There is an invisible bridge which you cross.
How do I defeat the Phantom in the Ghost Cave?The Phantom is quite tough. I would recommend using Lufia's Drain spell to lower his defensive power. Keep casting this on the Phantom. Then make sure you find the Ghost Ring (found in Ghost Cave). If the Hero or Aguro is equipped with the ghost ring, fight the Phantom with the person wearing the Ghost Ring. Use the one who is not wearing the Ghost ring to use potions to heal the wounded. If everyone has enough HP, then fight with the person not wearing the ghost ring. Just repeat this and you should have no problem defeating the Phantom.
Where are the three Gems I need for the three towers?The Blue Gem is in the Red tower. The green Gem is in the Blue tower. And in the Green tower you will find a broken Gem. You will need to find a new one. Go back to the Medan mines, and the old man at the back of the cave will give you the real Hope Ruby. The order you should place the Gems is: Blue Gem in the Blue tower, Green Gem in the Green tower, and lastly, place the Red Gem in the Red tower. In that order.
How do I cross the Cave near Ranqs?When you try to leave the cave near Ranqs, you will have difficulty proceeding. Go to a little cave east of Ranqs and you will find an old man who has most of the directions to exit the cave. They are: Up 1, Right 2, Up 1, Right 2, Up 4, Left 3, Down 1, Left 2, Down 1, Left 2, Up 2, Right 1, Up 1, Right 2, Then all the way up. You need to start in the doorway of this mysterious room.
How do I get to Arus?The bridge to Arus is collapsed so you will need to get someone to fix it. A repair man at Odel castle says he will repair the bridge with his friend at Lyden. Get him. Then he tells you to check out the bridge. Go left from Odel castle. You will come to a lake. Go under the lake and follow it to a bridge. Cross the bridge to a cave. In the cave is the bridge. Go back to Odel castle and get the carpenters. They then tell you to stand on a ledge and watch them work. You get to the ledge by going into one of the three caves entrances. These are called the West caves. Just work your way left through the cave and you will get to the ledge.
Where do I find Alumina?You will find 1 piece at the cave east of Linze. You will then find 5 pieces when you search the Three Island caves. The final piece is owned by the king of Herat. He will give it to you if you find some new food. To do this you need the Purple Newt. It can be found at a cave east of Herat. To get to this cave, go straight down from Aisen island. You will hit desert like land. Go all the way down then east across a bridge. Then North across another bridge. The cave entrance is here. Search the cave for the purple newt. Then go to Lyden. At one of the backeries is a basement. In the basement is the Wizard of taste. Give him the newt and he will give you the Magic taste formula. Go to the chef in Herat castle and give him the Magic Taste. He will serve the king and the king will reward you by giving you his Jewel collection, the Alumina is in this Jewel collection.
What order do I step on the switches in Aisen Tower?After all possible combinations, the last one worked so I don't know if you have to go through all of the combinations to open the door or not. The combination I got was Upper Left, Lower Right, Lower Left, Upper Right.
Where is the Dual Blade?The Dual Blade fell into the sea with Doom Island. To go below the surface into Doom Island, enter one of the Whirl Pool like circles. Go through the cave until you reach Doom Island fortress. The Dual Blade is here.
How do I get Power Oil?The Power Oil is being guarded by the Oil dragon in Oil cave. To get to Oil cave, enter one of the Whirlpools (eddys) and exit through the other Eddy. You will then find the entrance to Oil cave. Kill the dragon and you will get the Power Oil.
Where do I find the Dragon Eggs?Here are three sets of eight Dragon Egg locations: First eight dragon eggs Old Cave, 2nd floor Ghost Cave Red Tower Cave west of Odel Grief Tower Linze Gayas Cave Ullip Island Cave Second set of eight dragon eggs Alekia Castle Belgen Cave west of Linze Cave southwest of Belgen Elba Island Cave Underwater near Soshette Oil Cave Northwest Tower Third set of eight dragon eggs East Cave (east from Trek) Sheran Castle Lyden Old Cave, 7th Floor East of Herat Cave North Cave Southwest Cave Glasden Tower
