In Lahan Village, look behind the signs. There are
amusing messages written there.
Spider and web
At the start of the game in Lahan Village at Feis house,
go to where the two barrels are located. Look around that room,
and you should see a spider web in the corner. Jump up and press
[X] to get it. To get the spider, go to the mountain path
just before Citans house. Look at the trees near the end of the
path. You will see a spider in one of them, but when you approach
it hides quickly. If timed correctly, you can grab it to solve
the spider and its web puzzle.
Replenish armor and fuel on all Gears
This trick is useful after getting access to the Yggdrasil,
and your Gears are damaged from battle. Simply enter the Yggdrasil
and exit to replenish the armor and fuel on all Gears.
Change Seibzehn name
After you get Maria in your party, head to the Gear
shop in the Yggdrasil. In the shop is a man wearing all black.
Talk to him. He will tell you about how the Gear is too big to
fit in the Gear Hanger and then offer you a chance to change Seibzehn's
(Maria's Gear) name.
Actions at Bledavik Castle
Here are a few things to do when you are in Aveh.
In first floor of the Bledavik castle is a kitchen. Hanging from
the ceiling is some meat. Jump to grab it and get some Hob-jerky.
There is also an armory on the first floor of the Bledavik castle.
In there are suits of armor on stands. Press [X] on them
to obtain an Iron Armor.
On the highest floor is a room with a wine cabinet. Press [X]
on the green wine bottle to use the cameras throughout the castle
to look at things. Press [Square] to zoom in and [Circle]
to zoom out.
Near the main entrance of the castle is a guard near a small door.
This leads to the Gebler base. There is nothing really to do there
but just explore.
Bring Emeralda to the restaurant in Bledavik and order food to
see a glitch. When she sits down, she looks like she did when
your first met her (in the test-tube).
On Disc 2, travel to the lighthouse near the Aquvy
Islands. In there is the vast ruins of the Zeobim and many documents
and information about the culture. If you have Emeralda in your
party you can make her "grow up". Past all the buildings
is a huge parking lot. There is a hole in the parking lot. Get
out of your gears and jump into the hole. Continue moving forward
until you get to the town square, where an intermission starts
and Emeralda grows up.
Early Kislev battling
You can use the special battle modes in Kisvel as soon
as you leave Shevat with the Yddrigsial 3.
Immediately dash up to your opponent and begin rapidly
alternating between the [X] (attack) and the [Circle]
(dash) buttons. [X] will launch a kick and [Circle]
will cancel the combo, allowing you to immediately start another.
With a bit of practice, any Gear (including the Champ's) will
be in endless stagger until it is defeated.
If you have Elly, Emeralda, or Bart in your party you
attack your teamates with their Ether. You can kill them. which
gives you more experience points so you can level up faster. Note:
This does not work with Fei and Rico because they cannot attack
their party. It also does not work too well when you are in your
Gears. Warning: Do not use this trick when you are fighting Tears
or Forbiddens because they are too strong -- as a general rule,
do not use this trick on anything bigger than you are because
they will kill you.
This trick is only useful late on Disc 2, when you
gain control over the YggDrasil on the world map. Instead of hunting
Croaker tribes and Tusk-Tusks to earn money late in the game,
an alternate is to visit Big Joe's shop under the lighthouse.
Big Joe is surrounded by four chests which appear and regenerate
each time you enter the shop. Usually, these chests contain useless
items such as Spider Webs, Radishes, Elfananas, etc., or obsolete
items such as Aquasol and Zetasol. However, occasionally they
contain items such as Eyeballs, Fangs, Scales and Ivory (very
rare). It also is not that unusual to find weapons, usually Matchlocks,
which sell for a reasonable amount of money (6000G). While this
does not seem like a good way to make money, it can be much faster
(depending on your luck) to enter, collect the contents of the
chest, exit, then repeat as opposed to flying to the Anima relic
cave, spending time there trying to earn Ivories and Scales, flying
to Nortune to sell them, then flying to where you wish to shop
In the capital of Nortune in the Kaiser's room, there
is a metronome bank on the shelf near the treasure chest. You
will get gold if you can stop the metronome in the center. Do
this 20 times in a row to get 1000G.
Obtaining the deathblow item
When you are on the Thames, you will encounter people
who challenge you to a game that is similar to Speed. If you win
against all the people located in the Beer hall and the Supply
Grounds, go to the Armor grounds and play against the female who
is standing with two men. If you beat her, she will give you a
deathblow item for your Gear. This item will allow you to do a
After you become the battling champion, go to A-block
in Nortune. Find Big Joe and he will ask for you to give him 5000G
in order to look behind him. Accept his offer and he will say
that he scammed you. Later, after you get Elly back in your party,
go to the main map of Nortune. Big Joe will be there. He will
give you an M-disk, which can be used for the jukebox at the Wildcat
bar in A-block and also at the battle area on Disc 2.
In the very beginning of the game at Citan's house,
search around the main house. Once you find a flower bed, jump
behind it to the house and search the flower bed from behind;
you should find Midori's ring. After Shevat's crash, go to the
Snowfield Hideout, find Midori, and hand the ring to her. She
will give you a Hercules Ring in exchange. When equipped, it gives
50% more experience for that character for each battle.
If you have a sleep item, use it against any kind of
enemy. They will not attack you until they are destroyed.
Play as Sophia's Gear in the Battle
On Disc 2, go into the final dungeon and make your
way to where you are about to fight Deus. Go to the room with
Johnny the shop robot and ask to leave. Then, go to the Arena
and you can now play as the Gear.
Kim's message to Emeralda
At some point in the game, go to Citan's house. Enter
the room with the music box. Press [X] on the left side of
the box to read a message to Emeralda from Kim.
Chu-Chu on Disc 2
After all the drama in Disc 2 is over and you can move
your characters on the world map, you will notice that Chu-Chu
is gone. To obtain her again, go to the Gear hanger in the Yggdrasil.
She will be in the location where Elly's Gear was. Talk her and
she will rejoin your party.
This is useful during disc 2. A monster called Hamar,
who self-destructs after he glows red, is located at the dungeon
where Rico gets his new Gear. The explosion is lethal, but the
party can escape before Hamar explodes. However, the trick here
is to kill him before he blows up to receive a special item that
increases the chance of receiving rare items to 100%. Reserve
some infinity or level 3 attacks until Hamar turns red. Once he
starts glowing, give it all to him. (Booster also helps). With
the special item equipped, go to any forest and fight white snails.
These creatures were plentiful in disc 1, but now they are quite
rare. Killing these creatures gives the speed belt (helps gears
and human battles). Besides this, there are many other special
items/equipment carried by monsters.
A huge Gear will be encountered at the end of the Stalactite
Cave. Make sure Fei and Bart are on high levels (20-25), even
though it still may be difficult win at that. Have Bart cast Wild
Smile on Calamity, making it hard for him to hit you with any
of his physical attacks. Next, hit him with all your ten point
attacks, and save your energy until your Gear power is at level
one. Use your best level one combos for both Fei and Bart, hopefully
hurting the Huge gear. Keep in mind that Calamity has 2500 HP,
and that it will take a while to wear him down. His missile attack
will still hit you with 400 - 500 points of damage, not giving
you much time to defeat him. Use Fei's Guided Shot as your last
Go to Joe's shop at the Lighthouse and buy the Z-gold
armor. This will you 1000 defense alone. Ignore the Omega engines
because they only have 1000 fuel. Equip three DX Armors when fighting
Deus. Deus will have a hard time doing more than several hundred
damage with each attack.
Defeating the final Boss
First, equip all Gears with Z-chargers and some sort
of frame hp (such as 90). Build up to level infinity and do the
following: use frame hp, charge (with level infinity charge is
times ten), then attack. If this is done, you will never run out
of fuel and always be healed, while doing extra damage.
This is a fast way of taking care of most of the Bosses
when you are not in your Gears. You will need Billy and Rico besides
Fei. When you start the battle, use Billy to cast Goddess Call
on Rico, then on the next turn use it on Fei. Once these two are
"hasted", use Billy for healing purposes, Do not attack
with him as Rico and Fei will easily be able to finish most Bosses
without Billy wasting his ammunition. Have accessories that boost
attack power on the both of them, as well as use their respective
power up skills. During the Boss battle, do one weak attack then
cancel the rest to get as much AP as possible. Once you build
up to 28 AP, go to the combo menu and deal it to the bottom combos,
adding the left over AP to weaker ones. Fei's combos will do about
2000 damage if powered up correctly. Rico's can do close to 2400.
The crucial thing is to use Goddess Call, as Rico is an extremely
Lahan Well items
At the start of the game in Lahan, jump down the well
a few times. You will get an eyeball (sell it for gold), an Aquasol
S, a Power Ring, a chill and a lot of "well" puns.
Alice's wedding dress
To get Alice's wedding dress, just defend through the
entire battle when you fight Dan in the Area.
Get a Mermaid Ring
At the very beginning of the game, enter the bar in
Lahan village. Talk to the drunk by the stairs and he will ask
you if you have a problem with him drinking. Say "Drinking
wont help matters!" and he will give you an item called a
"Mermaid Tear." Remember that you have this item. Then,
when Shevat is destroyed and is now the Snowfield Hideout, there
will be a woman somewhere inside She is on a flight of stairs
somewhere with her back to you. Talk to her, and after telling
you something about her son, she will craft the Mermaid Tear into
a "Mermaid Ring". You can either use this on Emeralda
and perhaps other females. It raises your character's magic power
and defense by quite a bit.
Anima Relic Cave
When in the Anima Relic Cave on disc 2, you can get
a lot of G. Fight the Croaker Tribes to get Fangs and Scales.
Fight the Tusk-Tusks to get Ivory. You can even equip the Trader
Card to get nothing but Scales and Ivory.
Hidden room in the Orphanage
Get the three books from the kids at the orphanage.
There is a bookcase in the back room. With Billy in your party,
place the books in there. The book case will side open a bit --
you may have to push it slightly.
Deathblower1: Thames, Nisan Revisited, and Lighthouse
Final Fantasy Legend 3 reference
Deathblower2: Sargasso Point and Lighthouse
Deathblower3: Solaris and Lighthouse
The wolf Eidolon Fenrir is also a Boss from Final
Fantasy Legend 3 on the Game Boy that looks almost the same as
Final Fantasy 7 reference
Inside the residential section of Solaris, one
of the small apartments located near the shopping area has a poster
of Tifa Lockheart from Final Fantasy 7.
Hints: Things to do
In Lahan Village search Fei's bed you will find 200 G. Also, search
the barrels near Fie's room to find two aquasols.
Glitch: Size disorder
To get a Movie scene at the beginning, talk to the maid in the
room across from Fei's room.
Go behind Alice's house and talk to the boy. He'll say that he
had a crush on Alice. Most of the people talk about Alice, so
talk to them.
When doing Fei's Chi attack named Big Bang, it shows
a huge Earth and a small Moon before they get hit by an energy
blast and explode. When they get hit by the energy blast, it shows
a huge Moon and a tiny Earth.
Glitch: EP and MP references
In the menu/battle screen, Ether Points are abbreviated
as EP. However, in the change party members window the same thing
is referred to as MP (Magic Points).
