GENERAL HINTS AND PLAYING TIPS
How to get Easy Gald: Go to the city of Lzoold and go to the boat dock. Find your wanted poster at the dock. There will be a person in a pink cat suit here, Emo-Katz, and he or she will ask you to play "EB". Play it and choose easy for Apple Gels, normal for Life Bottles, or hard for Lemon Gels. You will get five of them if you win. You can do this as many times as desired. You can sell the Lemon Gels for 500 Gald at the shop above Emo-Katz. Play EB four times and win to get 20 Lemon Gelss and sell them to get lots of Gald.
Recommended level: When fighting through the first ruins towards the Seal of Fire, it is recommended that you get to at least level 13 for each character. If not, the battle with the Boss will either require an absolutely brilliant strategy or result in the death of your party. Also, make sure that Genis has his skills set to only Aqua Edge and/or Icicle if you have obtained that skill; otherwise he will waste TP using skills that will cause very little damage for the cost.
How to Fight a Bacura: To fight a Bacura, the big solid Mana blocks in the Toize Mines, go to the last room, where you get the ore. There will be a one-eyed monster in there. fight it. Sometimes it will be a couple of Stone Golems with some other monsters, and sometimes it will be a Bacura. Just run away if it is not a Bacura and re-encounter it. The Bacura has 255 HP and you can only drain one. Also, it disappears after thirty seconds.
How to get into the Wind Seal Room: In Asgard, when sealing the Wind Seal, it is difficult to get into the Seal Room. Light the two lamps next to each other to open a secret room, which has mini pinwheels in the room. Around the entire Asgard ruin there are tablets on the walls, but you cannot read them unless you light the lamps around the tablets, with the original form of the Sorcerer's Ring. When you read the two of them that say something about jewels, and the one that says the cycle of power through the Earth, Gods, and Wind Spirit, it is easy to get into the Seal Room. The Ruby is the red pinwheel, the Pearl is the white pin wheel, the Topaz is the yellow pinwheel, the Wind Spirit is the blue pinwheel, and the Emerald is the green pin wheel.
