|A couple of little helpful pointers to that you may want to take
advantage of. Feel free to submit anything that you think would
- Level up, level up, level up. Can't
stress this enough.
Gain at least a couple of levels per person before you even go down to
the next floor. Also incase of boss monsters, or just really
strong ones. If you keep getting killed on a certain level, go
back up and level there.
- Always have the nessessities with you.
Always have a Priest
with you, and get them a lot of healing spells, as well as Carcass and
Cathedral when available. A Sorceror, at least in the early parts
of the game where you're fighting Undead and you don't have a lot of
magical weapons, so just smack them with some low level spells. A
Thief or Ninja, to help trap disarms become a bit easier (you can do it
without them, but you wouldn't know what kind of trap it was).
Warriors, at least 2, as a main line of defense. You can make a
party however you want, but just make sure that you have a balanced
party. You can also make a cheap character as a priest or
sorceror, then when he/she reaches level 5 and has Wise/Faith both at
23 or above, you can make them a Bishop, either for having both types
of magics or just for appraising purposes. Also, get lots of
Transfer potions, especially early on, until you can get and use the
Leap spell (you'd hate to be stuck on B9, low on life/magic and have no
- Possessed characters do not need a magical
weapon to kill
Undeads. You can take advantage of this if you want, but it's
dangerous. You could risk permanently losing someone. My
advice is just getting a magical weapon for them as soon as
possible. Also to cure possession as soon as possible, unless you
want to try for the Possess AA's or need the Reaper Doors.
- It is possible to have a front row person
attack an enemy in the back
row using a short range weapon. First have that person in the
first row target a monster in the back row using a single target spell
(Creta, Barrets, etc). Then, back out the screen 3 times, and
choose "Attack". When you do, you will notice that the character
is still targeting the back row monster. So just attack it.
Now you can kill back row monsters with a front row member.
- In B5, once you have access to the working
Healing Spring, spend a
lot of time there. You get low on energy.. go here to get Full
HP, MP and status recovery. That's almost like staying at the
Lodge for free, except no level ups. Stay here to gain a couple
of exp. levels then go back to town to raise them. Rinse.
- A semi-good way to gain money/items would be
in B8, right in the
beginning. Go down to B8 and right in that room, more than likely
you'll find a chest with a rare item in it (usually the case, if not,
it's like a Transfer, Healing, or Curing Potion). Grab the item,
go back up to B7, then go back down to B8 and there should be another
chest there (if not, go up and back down). And just do this as
much as you want. So far, I've been able to find: Holy Knight
Sword, Thief's Dagger, Blazing Staff, Silencing Staff, Freezing Staff,
Faith Armor, Betrayal Armor, Ninja Armor, Bloody Robe & Prime
Shield. Ninja Armor itself goes for 12800G, Holy Knight Sword
11000G. That's some pretty nice change for crap that you probably
don't need, or if you do need, good for you; you just saved yourself a
lot of trouble.
- When actually creating characters, after
you've selected their race
and attribute and the bonus point roll shows up, you can back out the
screen and go forward again, and they will have another random
generated roll. You can keep doing this to get a high roll
(13-16) or an exceptionally high roll (19 to 24). Doesn't really
do much other than making a character stronger to start out as, but it
