Inside, the next gate, as you will see, is shut. Go west and cut down the trees. You'll
find a door, go inside it. In here, follow the straight path. (There's a few bridges
leading to dead ends, but you'll see where to go pretty much, no need for pictures).
Keep following the path until you get HERE.
Heal and Save. Proceed to fight the
The Chimera shoots projectiles at you. Since they can be destroyed, just stand in front of
it and hit it as fast as possible. It'll also zig zag down at you, so have Cure ready (You
probably won't be able to dodge the zig zag with this tactic. In fact, mash the B button
when he swoops down. :P )
After beating the Chimera, the path will open. Proceed into the next room to find the girl!
You'll tell her what happened to the pendant. She'll join you and tell
you that the Dark Lord's room is on the top floor. When you get here,
to find an item shop and an Inn (you can just sleep in any of the beds.). When you're
ready, go back to the fork and follow the path left. When you get here,
the north wall. When you get here
use your mad chaining skillz to get across and
hit the switch. A staircase should appear in the lower right. Go inside. Follow the path
until you get here,
you can head east to restore your life, or west to continue
on. In THIS room,
The puzzle is already solved. What you need to do is NOT move
any treasure chests, and just go downstairs. Probly equip a weapon that hits straight, like
the chain. When downstairs go here,
mattock the east wall Follow the straight
path all the way to the last room, and kill all the enemies in there to get the Blood
Sword. From there, go back to that other room and mattock the north wall. Follow the
straight path again until you get to the room with the water in the middle (And SWITCHES),
it's time for another round of solve that puzzle! Today's puzzle is pretty simple, just cast
Ice on an enemy and push them onto the switches. This should be the result.
Follow the straight path, and when you get here,
heal and save. Walk up the stairs and face the Dark Lord.
The Dark Lord fights like a really fast knight. Equip the Morning Star and try and fight
him from as long a distance as you can. (Use cure, damnit!)
After beating the Dark Lord, you'll receive the "pendant." You examine it for a second and
determine that it's fake! Begin to exit, and you'll notice that the girl isn't there!
You somehow know that her AND Julius are at the waterfalls so you go down there in like 4
seconds and see the girl. Julius will appear at the waterfall, he's obviously the brains
behind the operation now. The girl is hypnotized and reverses the waterfall. And as for you,
well...Julius sends you flying down another damn cliff. Like you didn't see that coming.
Luckily your chocobo comes out of left field, sees what happens to you and takes you to a
nearby town, the town of Ish...
In Ish, when you wake up, you'll be reunited with Bogard! He says that he was thrown off the
ship, but was saved here. At this point, I'm wondering why Bogard isn't the hero. That old
fogey survived that!? That's worth like 20 levels! Sheesh. It might just happen too; the
hero starts doubting his Gemma skillz. After an argument, the hero walks out of the house,
now you can (sorta) walk around the town of Ish. at the armory, only buy the Fire Chain...
do not buy Any, ANY (A N Y) Fire armor, trust me. Talk to Sarah, who will give you a little
pep talk, cos Bogard has a broken back, and he kept saying you were our only hope and would
SAIV THEE WEROLD!!!! He also says that your Chocobo is being fixed up by Dr. Bowow, who
lives in town. His house is west, right past the Inn. When you go in, Bowow will tell you
that he...MECHANIZED THE CHOCOBO'S LEGS??? Appearantly, he's fine, and he can even walk on
water now. R0x0r. Bowow also tells you to talk to Bogard before you go. So walk back to
Sarah's house. He will kinda just tell you about how Julius has the mana POWER now, and
that the only way he can be stopped is with Excalibur. You're told to go ask Cibba, back
in Wendel, as he would know where it is, and to ask Dr. Bowow how to get there. He'll tell
you how...so will I. :D
Get on your chocobo and go Northwest to here.
go off onto the water and up,
then east REALLY REALLY FAR until you get a port, then go up and you should hit
Wendel. Talk to the girl outside of the palace, and she'll say that Cibba went to Lorim.
From the port at Ish (It's much easier to give directions from there. :P ) Go directly
east until you get here
From there, follow the path to HERE
get on land and follow the path to Lorim. At Lorim, everyone is frozen but one dude.
He'll tell you that a monster called Kary, whom lives in the snowfield, did it.
What you need to get through this cave with much ease is some Ice Equipment. From the Port
at Ish, go west as far as you can, and up some. You should be here.
Go west, up
the river until you are HERE
, then go up and around to HERE
, then go
down and around to H E R E
and here, dismount from your chocobo and use the
Flame Chain to go across the water, follow the path, and you'll have to cross another gap,
and then you'll FINALLY be at the Shop.
Buy the Ice Equipment. Now, retrace your
steps allllllllll the way back to Lorim. From Lorim go back here
and chop down
the trees. At the ice, your chocobo will have to turn back. From there, go up all the way
to the shore, then head east as far as you can, and from there go down and follow the path
(Though it zig zags a lot and doesn't SEEM like a path) You'll finally be at the Cave
where Kary resides.
