Go to the question mark west of Fou-Lou's Temple. Go to the area where there was a burning forest. When you fight a Gold Gang and kill it with physical attacks you will get slightly over 1,000 Zenny. If you want even more money, kill it with magical attacks for over 10,000 Zenny. Repeat this as needed.

Go to one of the apple trees and stock up 99 of them. Then, go to the nearest shop and sell them for 10 Zenny to get a total of 990 Zenny. This is useful at the start of the game, but is not worth the effort later.

Go to the island south of Lyp. There is a Moza plant at that location from which you can cut Moza Grass off. Stock up until you have 99 and sell them for 50 Zenny each, for 5,000 Zenny.

Talk to her in the Village of Chek after talking to all the dragons in their physical forms.
Bunyan: Get the ability to apprentice with all the other eleven Masters. Then, find Bunyan by going to the question mark spot above the Highway and go through a secret passageway mid-way through the mountain range. Go up to his hut and talk to him.
Gyorim: After getting over 3,000 points in fishing, talk to the fishing frog in Lyp.
Kahn: After defeating him for the third time you can find him on the upper west continent in a question mark spot near the flowing tides.
Kryrik: After the sea voyage event, return to Shikk and talk to him. He will apprentice you only if you have gotten 25 or more hits in a combo. Practicing in Chek is recommended.
Lyta: After the Sea Voyage, talk to Sister Lyta in the orphanage in Synesta. You must have already learned Ward for her to apprentice you.
Marlok: Buy the "treasure" from the frog in Sarai for 500 Zenny. Trade it around from city to city until you get a Tin Ball or better. Then, talk to Marlok in Synesta after finishing the sandflier event.
Momo: Just talk to her in the windmill in Wyndia
Njomo: After working with the Faerie Village after awhile, go to the question mark spot with the house in it. Talk to the fairy upstairs.
Rwolf: Just talk to him near the entrance of Kurok.
Stoll: Pay him all your Zenny in the Bandits Hideout after the Marlok events.
Una: After beating up Kahn for the second time, talk to her in Worent.

Healing with apples
When you go into the woods to find the mayor, you have to use "apples" to lure out an animal. If you run out, find the tree that the man told you about where you can find more. Use Ershil's personal action and head butt the tree. An apple will drop down. The apple is a great healing item for early in the game, healing 100 HP. This may not seem like much, but if many apples, they work well. Stock up to get a full 99.

Defeating Dragonne
Avoid using Earth Attacks because of its high defense against it. Keep using strong combos or Dragon attacks to get rid of his regeneration ability. Be sure to have equipment which can stand against instant death attacks.

Defeating Fou-Lu
When you fight Fou-Lu alone as Ryu at the end of the game, just transform into Kaiser and leave it to him. If he dies, transform into another dragon or attack him by healing yourself. Fou-Lu will not transform into Tyrant or Astral or any other dragon-forms that he has.

Defeating Maman
In the woods where you find the mayor is a tree full of apples. Hit it with Ershin and stock up on apples. Head through the forest to where you find the mayor. You have to fight Maman at this location. Use an apple to distract it for a turn. If you have enough, the Maman will not attack during the entire battle.

Practicing Combos
Return to the hidden village by Chek after the battle. You will encounter monsters that have high HP and regenerating powers. You will fight six at a time, so you can practice your combos to very high scores.

Easy 70 hit combo
You need three spells, two which are learned by leveling up, which is Viltalize by Nina and Scias. The third is Celerity, which you learn as a skill from the master Abbess after you have encountered 100 different enemies. First, equip Celerity on any character except Nina or Scais -- preferable Cray since he is the slowest, so the enemies will get all of their attacks off first allowing you to cast the three spells in a row Enter a random battle anywhere, have the first character cast Celerity, then have Scias cast Vitalize, then have Nina cast Vitalize again. If done correctly you should have an easy 70 hit combo. If you have three Harmonic Rings, equip one on each character and it will help to connect the combo -- you will not waste casting Celerity if the combo does not connect.
