Head to the cloesest training area and train like a maniac. That should help you get through the game even if you're using weaker characters.

Man I totally messed up my game i found a site that gives like 9999 max status but id doesnt save so its just for training advantage and then i get the lvlin up going but the cp for the battle skills doesnt increase it just stays at 15 is there something wrong?
O and i read a walkthru to see wat happens in the game later and i shouldnt have picked Albel bc i found out that if u get him mad later in the game he goes to lvl 200 by himself in the lava caves dang man if i cant get my Fayt to lvl 100 how do u think i can lvl Albel that high?? I think i should just start my game over and just unlock the battle trophies i missed dang man this game is gonna take me years!! ahhh!! do i really have the time for it???

Mm, I love getting the bonus gage near full, then using a weak attack to set it off. 3x EXP. O_O I kept the chain going for quite a while in the mines and in Norton’s lair, was quite beneficial.

Ok so i got more into my game and im on the 2nd disc now.
I got my Fayt to lvl 106!! wow i thought the max lvl was 100 but i think its 200 now dang dude its hard enuf to get exp but thats going to take a while and i maxed fayt's skill points, So What am i supposed to do wit the 1026 other un used skill points??

So ill tell you my team:
Fayt lvl 106
Albel lvl85
Sophia lvl 72
Cliff lvl 92
Nell lvl 76
Mirage lvl 78
Aldray or something lvl 73 <-- sux alot only uses symbology and is really slowwww
and my favorite pretty character that i like Maria lvl 87
so thats my line up...

Im still trying to figure out how to sign the inventors tho its either give em money? or special items...
Theres this inventor called Boyd lvl 95 smithery and he needs the bent mystic sword ,but the only way to get it is in Gemity bunny race with exchange for the prize of 100 points!! ahhh!! it reminds me of trying to get the Omnislash move in FF7 with the Chocobo races,,,
Well best of luck to you guys if any of you can finish the game before me...
Well ill write every now and then if i discover anything. Post up any question if u have..

question:
I'm with Fayt and Cliff wich the are at lvl 19 and 18. Know an easier place to train?

the easiest place to train that i thought was that place in the mountains of bar in the place wit dragons i was lvl 21 and i got to lvl 32 in an hour of playing..

Can someone give me advice on how to use does... umm... cancel thingies that you do when you're attaking and the attack with another move? Thx
Ummm I think the cancel works when you do like a minor attack and then quickly switch to a major in that split second that you press the first one I usually get the canceling done where i get crazy in pressing my minor buttons when I break their guards...

Anyone else have that problem where when you try to hit them by mistake wit a minor attack when they have guard on and they use that AAA move where the red fireball comes at you and you then only have 1 hp left??? that pisses me off when i die like that and i have to replay from the last save point,,,

Ooo another comment i want to make .
The parts i hate in the game is the haulers part, that place wit the sacred orb where these huge blocks run over you, and another part is the place in the aqua guardens of suferio (next to the Aquios castle gate before you enter the city) thats where you play that maze game moving blocks to get to the path to get a Paracelsus table to do the battle mode so u can do the vs mode fighting each other very worth it!! took me like 7 hours of playing straight wit bathroom breaks to go thru :( say you do get it give it to the guild girl in peterny to let her hold on to it and go to her to play wit it...

I also like the music here and its for free the Star Ocean tracks along wit FF tracks
site : http://bluelaguna.net/pages/selectmp3.php
hope you enjoy it i like the these from the Ameena&Dion parts and *So alone, be sorrow* piano version part where its the sad parts first introduced in Maria's past.

The cut scenes of the executioners in the 2nd disc are amazing youll know wat they are later on. But the part that made me get a turn off of the story is when you discover that space world is a fake....

To MetalgearX: The max level is 255.

If you guys think the game is hard now, wait until you try fighting Freya!! 20000000HP!

Let me repeat that. She has 20 MILLION HP! Also, she has a 5000 attack and WILL KILL YOU if she uses her strongest attack. Her strongest attack does over 100000 points of damage to the party, so even at Max Level, you WILL BE KILLED BY IT!!

Best part of the game to me, Item Synthesis. Giving basic weapons Attacks of 9999! Really fun and easy; Synthesis always succeeds.

As far as Eternal Sphere,
SPOILER ALERT

ehh Synthesis is soo g00d, yet so expensive... Though it's not actually a problem to deal with once your farther in the game... make some items, file a patent, get the cash. ^_^ so yes synthesis is very reliable, and has a 100% success rate. Though my fav creator's have to be Smithery, and Engineer. It's been a huge help in the game. *makes sure this thread keeps going*

SO:3 is by far my fav PS2 game.. and is one of my fav small series. I've been a SO fan for some time, and this new feel to the SO series sure is a huge improvement... (especially item creations... cuz man was it hard in the past!)

G00d idea. I think when I first reached chapter 2 I got the hang of pretty much everything battle wise, and toke much longer for me to expand my shops, and modify/create weapons, and actually know what I was doing... If you need any help just ask any of us SOGuru's ^_^ Though like you said, you'll pretty much pick up on the battle style's, and have a better understanding.

Ooo so thats wat editing is okay thnx i guess for the advice.. silly me i didnt know u can change ur post he hehe?? soo umm is it bad if im using gameshark even though i have know it to spoil some games im using it to do that save anywhere code because you know how parents make you stop playing so u can do chores and stuff hmmm
Im that type of person where i dont have time to go back and save everytime something happens. Like in pokemon gba games you can just save anytime so thats wat i like in games....

O yea i was in gemity the other day and i was playing the was going up the ranking battles it sux alot u only get weak exp even wit the gutsy bunny and money. I rather get neat items..
I thought the Demon Lords and the first place team were the hardest.
The demon lords kept on doing confuse on me and they have a lot of life.
I was also fighting the first place team where i think there were 2 dragons and dang they had like 10 million hp or something!!! i was like trying to beat them for 2 hours ahhhh man they should have made it like a fair amount of hp man no wonder ppl would like FFX more its easier and more story line and best sad emotional cutscene at the end, i was crying when tidus had to disappear boohoohoo well i still like it alot.

Do you get money when you file a patent? I made some (Cheap) items and they were in stores soo I wondered if i could earn some money.

Kairi

Time between save points isn’t so great you couldn’t just redo stuff imo. @_@; And I’m happy to see these kinds of games be difficult—stuff like X and VII mke it way to easy to dominate. “Hi you can carry 99 megalixers and pretty much never die unless its in one hit” *yawn* These games, by limiting your items and making you do a bit more thinking are more fun.

I haven’t gotten to item creation, so I’m unsure about that. ^_^; And um, can anybody tell me if Sophia is decently useable as a player character? I think she’s cute and would like to alternate between her and Albel.

Yes indeed. When you first start off the game though you'll most likely get a small amount of Fol, and that's a pain. >_< As you move on in the game you'll gather more ranking points for your inventors, and gather more inventors. The more points they receive, the more Fol you'll get every 30 mins while being in a Field or Dungeon. Remember... Time in the IC (item creation) world will not proceed if in such places like towns.

I havent gotten to item creation, so Im unsure about that. ^_^; And um, can anybody tell me if Sophia is decently useable as a player character? I think shes cute and would like to alternate between her and Albel.

Yes she is in the decent level... Not all that flashy, but she get's the job done. ^_^ She has a nice range of Symbological attacks which are pretty powerful, and she certianly can top Adray in that area. (but not all areas) Though I'd have to say Albel PWNS them both. ^_^ (in my opinion of power, and etc. of course) Who can hate Albel's 4P costume?

Clear that up a bit for me. Well Assuming you mean they do not increase like this.. -> 1/144 2/144 3/144 etc. your correct. Other wise you'll be spending half your life trying to collect all those 1/144 Scale Bunnies, and 1/60 Scale Bunnies. o.O

~Blade~

SBaby
October 12th, 2004, 03:58 PM
The 1/144 and 1/60 Scale Bunnies only add the 5% speed increase once each. The others are just a source of income. DO NOT keep the 1/1 Scale Bunny, as it will cut your Battle Speed in half! Sell it and the extras as soon as possible!!

As for the money every 30 minutes: It is dictated by your rank, and the ranks of the other inventors that you've signed on, even if they already filed patents for items before you sign them. That's why in the beginning, you only get a small amount of money, compared to later in the game. Easiest way to increase cash is to make the highest ranked item you can easily make as often as possible. If you're short on money, try lower ones first.

Orihalcum is a good one for this because you get 98 points for it and you'll use the 'ATK+500' and 'Survive on Fury 50%' when synthesizing. To make it, you need to spend between 5700 and 6000. It sells for about 22000 Fol, so the price is worth it. Stay in a town with a nearby Save Point, in case you can't get it made right away. Also, the Alchemist's Stone helps here, because it gives you +20% to the success rate of the Creation. You need Misty Lear to make it, so don't bother trying until you get her from the Mountains of Barr. The Spirit Stone is in the Ruins of Barr, just before the Urssa Lava Cave. (You'll back out of the dungeon before fighting the boss, so get her then, instead of wasting a trip.)

Once you have a higher rank, leave the game on overnight in a field after clearing the enemies in the vicinity. Then, you should have lots of money. Also, remember that the Inventors you have need to be on Standby, otherwise they'll spend all your money trying to make items on their own...

Note: The only item that there isn't a shop for is Synthesis Materials. Inatead of buying them from Santa, you have to fight enemies or find them. Almost EVERY field area has at least one enemy that has the item, though, so you should be able to find it almost anywhere. If you need help finding the Inventors, just post here and I'll let you know where they are and how to sign them. I have all of them except Boyd. You can imagine how much I get from them...

Item Creation IS expensive, but necessary if you plan on beating this game... The later bosses will be impossible to kill without tinkering with your stuff at least to a degree.

I heard that some synthesis item gets u 9000 + attack? is it a rumor or is it true bc to reach the max attack i would need about lets see about 16 or 18 orichalums and it takes a while for me to even get 4. Umm and to correct you u need at least 5000 fol to make a orichalum since it is the base range for the fol... And also is Paladin's helm good? since i heard the base cash is about 10000 fol for each time that passes, If the time passes when ur IC-ing and the chars never smile should i just wait until they do or abort assuming its a failed attempt???

For the Orichalum the base price is 5700.. anything closer to the 5000 mark will most likely aim for Angel Stone instead in Alchemy. Paladin's Helm's Value in the store would range to 4000 Fol. Items created on your own are cheaper, so it's best to stick with that. (trying to create it will cost about 400 Fol Huge difference) it adds 1200 atk to the user so not that bad. Problem is that it does not have any factors.(Evalulation is 100, so g00d) >_< Synthesis could inprove a weapon over, and over, and over. I wouldent actually concentrate on one thing.. as your just causing yourself to use up Synthesis Material Item's. (unless you wouldent mind stocking back up on some) Also it's just best to try collecting a few other items, before you decide to build on specific things, that way you can gain more stuff for your characters, and find out about other items during the process. (I hate buffing up one item.. especially with the large amount of Fol I have to save up for that) Now it's actually your decision to stop a IC, or not... the longer you make them work, the more problems that may accur.. (notice quality bar decreases, making things more problemetic, and Fol goes down the drain) Your decision to continue, and see if a item will be made though.

Well I was looking at my money a second ago, and my item was able to hit he stores but my money was the same. I guess it's not working or something. BTW, can someone tell me where can I find the items to get Rigel and Mackwell?

And another thing how far am I in the game? I'm currently in the Sealed Cavern for the first time. Thx!

October 13th, 2004, 04:07 PM
To get Rigel, you need to cook Golden Curry.

The Eva is 65 and the base Price is 63, without any modifiers to the money.

For Mackwell, you need the Book of Prophecies I.

It's in the Shrine of Kaddan. In the South area, you have to go into the southeast room and wait a moment. While waiting, you need to run around. Eventually, you'll trigger an Earthwuake. Avoid the debris (otherwise, you'll have to trigger it again) and run west. Then go through the North door, run east one room, and south through the newly opened pathway. It should be the chest on the Southeast side of the room. Otherwise, it's the other one, but it's there. Don't miss the Workshop, as you can't finish the Shrine without making the item with the three Saint's Stones.

I pre-Ordered the game, so I got it pretty much as soon as it came out. Also, I have to admit, I used the Strategy Guide for it, but only for the Synthesis part. That's why I know so much about it. The only thing is you can know everything about synthesis, but it is still REALLY time-consuming, so make sure you're the patient type for it.

The hardest thing about it is figuring out which combination of inventors makes the desired item the most often, since you can exceed the Evaluation level of the item and still fail completely due to the money modifier of the group. On top of that, the Strategy Guide doesn't explain the money modifier very well; it's not only that it's less expensive, it's that it also prevents the inventors from making the most expensive items.

I'm sure he was refering to me, seeming as I use Naruto pics, and helped him.. but either way. I pretty much have the same thing to say as Sbaby. For the IC I used a guidebook, and it's a must if you'd like to figure out base stats, and stuff.. without it, wou'll pretty much have a difficult time with that section. I also have much knowledge from the previous 2 games, and that also contains a few of the same system in IC's, so that helped. (nearly everything except hiring inventors, etc. etc.) I know I cant stand getting help from my guidebook, so I dont bother with the chapter walkthroughs, just the IC itself.

Not the place to be talking about avatars, and such... but yes animations sounds g00d, but I perfer them to just be plain old, non-moveable pics. Use Photoshop, and just be creative. Get a nice font, some g00d pics, etc. etc. You just need to be able to work with PS, to actually get into all that g00d stuff. (my banner.. especially avatar, is pretty much basic. That's how I like them) I generally have g00d memory of things though.. I cant help but to remember stuff on such a great game as this one. When you get into it like me, there's no end to what you can learn. ^_^

SBaby

Dude, you should be at least Lv.60 before you leave the city after the Sphere 211 incident. Also, make sure your weapons all have at least +1500 to their attack.

This is because after returning to Styx from the 4-D Universe, you are going to be fighting one of those lovely Proclaimers that everyone loves to hate. Then, you are going to fight an Enforcer, which is a bit stronger. Then the fun really starts because you are going to fight a Convictor which, HP-wise, makes the other two bosses look like jokes in comparison. This is THREE BOSSES IN A ROW WE'RE TALKING ABOUT, so take it that seriously.

On another note, these Bosses are about the level of the normal enemies in all the future areas after this, so use these fights to gauge whether you think you're ready for the final parts of the story or not.

You might have wanted to make a new topic since this one is so old. ^_^; Oh well..
Ruddle and Rumina show up again much later in the game, after you return to Elicoor III. They run a shop that peddles quite a few of the game’s best weapons.
