Just wondering how far people are at in the game. I'm just shortly after getting the boat.

I am near the end of Apollo Sanctum. Lol, Matthew said something for a change. It also explains the meaning behind their Japanese names, "Spade" and "Heart," was it?

I definitely need to see if I can get my Action Replay though, I want to see if there are any beta psynergies in here.

Have a nice day.

Ooh, cool. I am not quite that far, but I am at the Chalis/Blados/Chaos Hound fight. I also have every Mars djinni, but I left several of the others behind. I found out their weaknesses.

Spoiler for Chalis:
Weak: Mercury
Resistant: Mars

Spoiler for Blados:
Weak: Mars
Resistant: Mercury

Spoiler for Chaos Hound:

Weak: Venus
Resistant: Jupiter

I must say, I do like the idea of Dark Adepts though. I wonder if there are any Light Adepts?

Have a nice day.

What do I do with dream leaves besides revisiting that swamp dungeon, and Haures?

Also, the boss theme is amazing! Definitely one of my favorite RPG boss themes ever.

Yeah, but you should hear the final(?) boss theme. I am currently fighting it again.

Oh yeah, have you met Star Magician yet? His ship has a Clothos' Distaff, and he gives you Azul if you can kill him. Of course, you also have to be strong enough for the shadow part of Weyard.

Also, does this mean that I don't get to go to Bilibin? It is fine with me if it ensures another game, but...

Have a nice day.

Already at final boss? ... I just got Sveta in my party ... she is really good fighter .. but did anyone notice that Karis does more damage with magic based psynergy? even though they have the same elemental power ... I used Tornado with both of them .. Karis did around 120 while Sveta did 90 only >< i think they did something to increase casters magic power XD Oh yah i tried that on the same monster so resistance is the same

I noticed that Sveta seems to be a bit closer to Matthew, whereas Himi is closer to Rief, Karis closer to Amiti, and then that leaves Garet and Eoleo to be somewhat similar, though both different.

Also, I am now being seen off in Belinsk. So yes, I am past the final boss now. I tend to devour games when I get them, taking me only one or two days to beat them. This took me slightly longer than most games tend to, but it was still in the 2-3 day range. Such a wonderful game it is.

Now for my complete playthrough, where I go back to get all of the djinn, summons, and items that I missed in this playthrough.

Have a nice day.

I left at least two Mercury djinn back near Kolima/Belinsk region, one of which is the one in the port (where you first meet Briggs). I thought to myself "Oh, I will just come back here later." Too late to get him back, although I am going to start another file, which I can use to get absolutely everything.

As for a main team, I do not have one. I keep flipping them around whenever one character ends up getting a few levels higher than someone in the back team. I can name my lowest though, Tyrell at level 41. Even then, it will take nothing for him to level up if I send him to the top of Apollo Sanctum again. Those new soldiers give a whopping sum of experience (41k+ for each battle it seems). Tua Soldiers? If you train on them for a while, it would be quite easy to make it to level 50+ in a short period of time (I am guessing about 40-60 minutes, assuming that you are strong enough to kill them all). There is a Wise One statue near the entrance to Apollo Sanctum, so it would not be hard to go back and heal when you need to.

Spoiler for the Final Boss:
Weakness: Jupiter
Resistance: Venus

Huh. Megaera is not too far behind actually, just to the west of the first town after Rief. As for me, I missed so many djinn and summons. I am going to start another playthrough in a few minutes, where I make sure that I get everything. I managed to find all of the Mars djinn though, the last one comes before actually reaching Apollo Sanctum.

Oh yeah, when the Eclipse Tower first rises, GO TO THE TOP! I swear, the Eclipse summon is really useful. I think that was the third(?) optional summon that I found.

Have a nice day.

y the way, does anybody know how to reach the real ending? All I managed to see was Matthew, Tyrell, and Karis returning to the cabin to find the biggest Psynergy Vortex ever. "The End?"

Summon locations

Spoiler for Hiden:
Zagan - west of Konpa Ruins, easy enough, use whirlwind

Magera, left of first dunegon upon getting rief

Flora - In Passaj Mountain Climb, you will need frost thingy, to get it, just go to the city via the quick lift thing then walk the mountain path back down.

Moloch - After you cross the sky thingy, in the snowy mountains before you enter the town and get Sveta, follow the path west and theres a cave

Ulysess - north of boarder town theres a cave with a train track puzzle, use fireball on the bomb to reveal the thingymajob

Haures - First get a dream leaf at Kolima then head to boarder town and stay at the inn, at night in dream land, go to the otehr side of town and you will see a cave With the summon

Eclipse - When escaping the luna tower, go to the top floor and read the glyph

Crystal Dragon - In the Opera house, when leaving Belinisk for the last time, even tho it tells you to go there, you can leave the town and miss it forever

Azul -  Kill Star Magician who is on deadbeards ship in the foggy area of the map, sail till you find.

Others im not sure as of now!

as of now, i have only missed one djinn and if i with the ship can return there i can get it.... its Brick in the town with the ice queen

Um... is there a way to get back to that cave?... because I'm a die hard completist and if I forgot Megaera I'd hate myself for quite a while.

Fox: @Gameradar = I like that approach.... 30 second video ad for one ad-free day... as an option.... Interesting? - Of course, keeping to using an adblocker is also an option... but the point is how they made it almost sound encouraging. :P
July 16, 2017, 12:06:02 AM
Fox: Recent research is making me worried that it might not be vulnerable enough to do anything with it. Not absolutely sure, though.
July 14, 2017, 06:12:12 AM
Fox: Well thanks. While it does appear to be a vulnerable glitch, we still need to find a way to succefully abuse it. It's a bit complex, so I'd be amazed if someone actually finds a good method! :)

Plexa: I'll play around with this stuff on stream in 20 mins or so. No idea if I'll find anything or if I even understand properly what you're doing - but we'll see!
July 11, 2017, 09:50:07 AM
Fox: Initial process of elimination. (When taking into consider if whether you can retreat in a map or not, and if the are contains at least two map code files....) ... I'm left with these to look at: Lemuria Ship, Gondowan Cliffs, Gabomba Statue, Jupiter Lighhouse, Mars Lighthouse, Anemos Inner Sanctum ; Not much room for luck if my hunch is even correct at all... 
July 11, 2017, 08:11:16 AM
Fox: Oh yes... Map code files can be shared across maps, but I don't think the same map code files is used for all maps of an area... So.... I will need to do so testing to verify my hunch about whether NPC Script glitching could even be a thing... or if it is just me imagining things....
July 11, 2017, 07:41:34 AM
Fox: of the commands*
July 11, 2017, 07:41:11 AM
Fox: That is to say... if I recall correctly... that NPC Scripting (idle scripts, I think.)  ... is basically custom code (aka: Not asm/arm/thumb)... and I do believe _at least_ one that commands.... might deal with flags (assuming if I remember)... I need to confirm my hunch, though... but finding tricks to even do script code properly will probably be next to impossible.
July 11, 2017, 07:16:12 AM
Fox: case*
July 11, 2017, 07:16:06 AM
Fox: Wait... If that's the cause... and if the NPC's script pointer ponits to map code data... then.... what could that mean... umm... *confused on whether I'm even onto anything or not. Maybe not.*
July 11, 2017, 07:08:02 AM
Fox: (I mean when loading the Retreat Map after glitching.)
July 11, 2017, 07:05:43 AM
Fox: I guess it is like this? = GS1 will load the objects from the Retreat Map / GS2 will load the objects from the map you were in ....?
July 11, 2017, 05:48:44 AM
Fox: Growth Vines and Frost Pillars, oh my! == Was just thinking of a scenario where you wouldn't have a water adept for Frost, but would need a Frost Pillar to get where you would want.... but eh... maybe I can't think....
July 11, 2017, 05:31:52 AM
Fox: I think Area-based flags are used more.... but Psynergy-related objects can often be in room-based flags.
July 11, 2017, 01:50:52 AM
Fox: A random thought is what if there were ever x/y position values for an object there, that when interacted with, sets a number based on its location... Eh... I have quite the imagination.
July 11, 2017, 01:38:10 AM
Fox: If there is anything, I don't expect much, unfortunately.
