||This is what you'll see upon leaving Despa Valley and
before entering Rolick Desert. You will come back to this
screen once you obtain the Aqua Boots.
First thing you should do is kill a few blue snakes in the
next screen and enter the hole that appears. Inside you
will find a Wise Woman that will sell you another Life
Potion. In total you should find 2 life potions (this one
is included), 2 bibles (6,000 gold max) and 1 green mea.
See the Rolick Desert Spoiler map in the maps section for
pricing and locations. If you are in need of gold, the
green snakes yield 180 gold per kill, but they take 3
strikes to bring down and they hit pretty hard. Be careful
and position yourself in a safe place on the screen to
|From the screen where you found the life potion, move
one screen right and one screen up. Kill a couple
porcupigs to reveal a hole. Enter and a Wise Woman will
ask you to buy the Aruzasu Shield for 8,000 gold. This
shield will deflect bullets thrown by bees and water
spirits (And change the overworld music!). Unfortunately,
the max gold you can carry right now is 6,000. You'll have
to come back later. The Wise Woman will label you a "moron
of the first class."
||It would be a good idea to save your progress before
going to fight Rolick. Just visit Winkle (from the
entrance: one screen right, one screen up, then one screen
left) and write down your password.
|Two screens to the left of the entrance to the desert
you will find a clearing with a bunch of blue rocks, set
up as a small circle within a larger circle. Strike the
rock you see Kelesis stabbing in the picture to the right
5 times to reveal the entrance to Rolick's lair. Make sure
your max gold is 6,000 because when you kill Rolick, he
will fill your purse to the max!
||Rolick's dungeon is another simple platformer. You must
kill 2 giant snakes this time and be careful towards the
end of the dungeon not to fall to the floor because you
will have to start the dungeon again if you do.
Rolick will curl up and spin very quickly following
Kelesis around the room. Dodge the demon while it is
spinning. When Rolick slows down/stops, get as many stabs
in as possible before it begins spinning again.
|Once Rolick is defeated, journey all the way to the
farthest Northeastern part of the desert to find the
screen filled with animal skulls pictured on the right.
Enter the hole that appears and buy the second crystal for
||Item check! Make sure you have all the same items I have
pictured on the left before moving on. The journey gets
more challenging in Bachular Graveyard. 4 Life potions,
6,000 gold max, 2 crystals, and 1 green mea.
|Once you are ready to move on, journey to the farthest
Northwestern portion of Rolick Desert (pictured on the
right) and a bridge will appear that was not there
previously. Cross the bridge into Bachular Graveyard.
