The Grindery Quarters
When you exit the Grindery Bowels, you'll find yourself in a place called "My Secret Garden". Apparently, Ghaleon is still a bit of a softy for Pixies...hmm... anyway, there is a Statue of Althena in the center of the Garden, so use that, and then once you tire of talking to faeries *snicker*, walk into the Grindery Quarters using the entrance in the north-middle of the Garden.
Once you enter the Grindery
Quarters, follow these directions: Go east, turn south, turn east, turn
south again. This will land you the 3rd and final Healing Ring. From here,
continue south, turn west, and then enter the door on the North and take
the stairs inside the small room.
---------------------------------BOSS FIGHT: MAGIC EMPEROR---------------------------------
The Magic Emperor
has -5- attacks, and none are to be sneered at. The 1st
attack, is basically 2 high level bitchslaps
against 2 characters, and can be expected when he is shrugging his shoulders.
The 2nd - 5th attacks, are given away by
Ghaleon's glowing purple hands. One may think the order is random, but
he'll cast one of his 4 omnipotent spells. Remember, the ones you had
so much fun with so long ago? They hit everyone, and all do LOTS AND LOTS
of damage. He'll cast them over and over in this order, always: Inferno,
Nitro Dagger, Tornado,
and Rock N' Roll. Most of the time,
he'll attack, cast a spell, attack, cast a spell, etc.
Once you beat Ghaleon and the party stops chatting, walk north and get your woman (^_^). When you enter the chamber, you find Luna standing alone staring at the Goddess Tower. Talk to each party member, and then ascend the stairs and finally save Luna. When you starts walking towards Luna, you'll note that she used to be a sweet adorable girl...and thanks to Ghaleon, she's now a crabby psycho bitch. After a few choice words, she changes into a VERY evil (and VERY visually appealing ^^) outfit, and then turns the room into an open air chamber. As Alex tries to get near Luna to smack some sense into her, she pegs him with a magic sucking fire bolt, just like Ghaleon did to him in the White Dragon Cave so long ago. After watching THE MOST KICKASS animation in the game, the scene cuts back to the normal view and Ghaleon mocks your party. Now realizing that what you fought was an illusion, Ghaleon himself picks a fight with you. Get your licks in, but your scripted to lose this fight. once you do, Ghaleon warps away with Luna to the newly summoned Althena's Fortress, and Nall is left there crying while the party lays there near death as the Grindery falls apart. Things are looking VERY bleak...
