The various parts of each sidequest are listed separately so that you can do each part as you reach that point in the game. - The most recently updated version of this guide can always be found on GameFAQs.com. Any other site hosting the guide may or may not have the most recent version. - Locations refer to the where you can find the place to START that particular part of the quest. - Start points listed as "enter [place]" refer to the first time the game's storyline takes you to that place. - Prerequisites listed as "clear the game" mean that you'll need to be on a second or further playthrough. - Milestone events are only listed to help you keep track of where you are and ensure that you haven't missed anything. - Using your computer's search command (ctrl + F for Windows or command + F for Macs) with the bracketed codes in the table of contents will take you to the first part of a given sidequest. If you're looking for the next part of a specific quest, just replace the "01" with the next number to get to the next part of the sidequest. Or you can just use the three letter code repeatedly to get to all parts of the sidequest in order. - I have attempted to make this guide as spoiler-free as possible, but a few may have slipped through. As long as you don't read too far ahead, you should be fine. Any unavoidable spoilers are labeled. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- CHRONOLOGICAL SIDEQUESTS [CHRSQ] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---- Note ---- If you like to watch skits and/or want to complete as many areas of the game as possible, you can often get one by staying at an inn after each major plot event -- a cutscene in a new city, a decision about what to do next, etc. I'm afraid I don't know all of the points where you'll get them, or even what qualifies as an event major enough to merit one, but I do know that staying at inns often will help you see all the skits. Those I am aware of are noted. -------------------- [MCF01] Master Chefs -------------------- Part 1/19 Location: Engeve Start: enter Engeve Cutoff: none? Prerequisites: none From the west entrance of Engeve, go into the house to the north. Inside, there's a woman standing by the stove. Talk to her and agree to help, then follow the path down and to the right and go into the house with the waterwheel. Go in and talk to the old lady on the right, then back to the first house to get the Spaghetti recipe. If you're going to get cooking titles, start cooking from the beginning of the game. Use one character and have them cook after every battle. Once they've mastered a recipe (gotten three stars), replace it with another one. Mastering recipes takes a while, which is why it's a good idea to start early. Choose whomever you like for now -- eventually, you'll want to use a character who isn't in the party yet, since they get two titles out of mastering the recipes while everyone else only gets one. I'll remind you to have them cook when they join the party. ------------------------ [CBK01] Collector's Book ------------------------ Part 1/2 Location: Engeve Start: stay at Engeve's inn Cutoff: enter Akzeriuth Prerequisites: none Talk to the shopkeeper Luke tried to steal the apple from. Enter the Cheagle Woods and go left as soon as the road forks to find a treasure chest containing a Secret Box. It's best to return to Engeve immediately and give him the box. Otherwise, you'll have to wait a while. (You'll probably see a scene at night before you'll be able to go back.) Bring the Secret Box to the man, and he'll give you the Collector's Book in return. Also, prices of food in Engeve will be lowered by 20%. -------------------- [MCF02] Master Chefs -------------------- Part 2/19 Location: St. Binah Start: enter St. Binah Cutoff: none Prerequisites: none Go to the eastern area of St. Binah and enter the first house on the left. Examine the notebook lying on the floor to get the Sandwich recipe. --------------------------------- [SBM01] St. Binah's Medicine Shop --------------------------------- Part 1/1 Location: St. Binah Start: enter St. Binah Cutoff: enter Akzeriuth Prerequisites: none Go to the eastern side of the city and enter the medicine shop in the back, just past the ladder. Talk to the man behind the counter on the left. He wants a Gel Base and a Cotton. You can find the Gel Base in Search Point 1 and the Cotton in Search Point 4. One important note -- you may not get the items the first time you check the search points, so save before checking them. This will let you reset the game if you don't get what you're looking for. Otherwise you'll need to enter and then exit a dungeon or city for the search points to reset, and there aren't any nearby. You don't even have to quit the game; just go to the System menu and load your save file again. Look at Cyllya's world map on GameFAQs for help with where to find them. Search Point 1 is in square G5 (west of St. Binah, cross the river via the bridge and head south along the coast). Search Point 4 is in H6 (east of the entrance to the Fubras River -- follow the path south until you reach the bridge that's out and go west from there). On returning to St. Binah, give the man the items to get a Miracle Gel, a new item shop opened, and medicine prices in St. Binah lowered by 20%. ------------------------------ [STB01] Soil Tree of St. Binah ------------------------------ Part 1/1 Location: St. Binah Start: meet Field Marshal McGovern Cutoff: enter Akzeriuth Prerequisites: none Climb up the ladder on the eastern side of St. Binah and examine the things there for a scene. ---------------------------- [BDF01] Black Dream Fan Club ---------------------------- Part 1/3 Location: St. Binah Start: stay at the inn in St. Binah Cutoff: enter Choral Castle? Prerequisites: none Immediately after entering the eastern side of St. Binah, find a bulletin board with a poster on it. Hit the poster on the left with Mieu Fire for a scene and 200 Gald. -------------------- [SNT01] Sonic Thrust -------------------- Part 1/1 Location: St. Binah, Kaitzur, OR Kaitzur Naval Port Start: Guy joins the party Cutoff: enter Akzerituh Prerequisites: none Stay at the inn in one of these three places for a scene and the arte Sonic Thrust for Luke. Kaitzur's is free, so I'd just stop as soon as you get there. An inn's on your left if you're coming in from the Malkuth side. ---- Note ---- After you reach Kaitzur, Anise will join the party. Have her start cooking after each battle until she masters all the recipes -- doing so will eventaully get you two titles for her. -------------------- [SWD01] Sword Dancer -------------------- Part 1/3 Location: Choral Castle Start: clear Choral Castle Cutoff: enter Akzeriuth Prerequisites: none Examine the sword in the entrance hall of Choral Castle to fight the Sword Dancer. This can also be done later when you pass by on your way to Akzeriuth, and the fight will be easier. Don't worry; I'll remind you when the time comes. ---------------------- [TSP01] Tear's Pendant ---------------------- Part 1/2 Location: Chesedonia Start: enter Chesedonia Cutoff: enter Astor's mansion Prerequisites: none Find the coachman from Tataroo Valley in the marketplace near the inn on the Malkuth side and talk to him for a scene. ---------------------------- [BDF02] Black Dream Fan Club ---------------------------- Part 2/3 Location: Chesedonia Start: enter Chesedonia Cutoff: clear Zao Ruins Prerequisites: complete part 1 Talk to the person in the stall nearest the inn on the Malkuth side of Chesedonia. Pay 1,000 Gald and get the Fanzine. -------------------- [ALN01] Ant Lion Man -------------------- Part 1/6 Location: Chesedonia Start: enter Chesedonia Cutoff: enter Astor's mansion Prerequisites: none Go toward the south side of Chesedonia, in the part of the Kimlascan side with the inn. The Ant Lion Man is hiding back in an alley between the inn and an old man who is sitting on the ground with a jar. Talk to the Ant Lion Man and give him an Apple Gel; he'll give you the recipe for Fried Chicken in return. ------------------ [FRI01] Free Items ------------------ Part 1/1 Location: Chesedonia Start: enter Chesedonia Cutoff: ??? Prerequisites: none Across from the Ant Lion Man's alley is a merchant in a booth between the two weapon shops. Talk to him for a scene. Choose Food to get three Beef, three Chicken, and three Rice; choose Items to get two Apple Gels, two Poison Bottles, and two Magic Lenses. -------------------- [HWM01] Have We Met? -------------------- Part 1/1 Location: Baticul Start: audience with King Ingobert Cutoff: ??? Prerequisites: none Talk to Pere in the courtyard of Fabre manor for a brief scene. ------------------- [GYA01] Guy's Artes ------------------- Part 1/7 Location: Baticul Start: audience with King Ingobert Cutoff: none Prerequisites: none Talk to Pere in the courtyard of Fabre manor for a scene with Guy. The above scene will trigger first, so just talk to him again after it for this one. ------------------------- [AAB01] Arcane Arte Books ------------------------- Part 1/6 Location: Baticul Start: talk to Susanne after returning to Baticul Cutoff: none Prerequisites: none Talk to Ramdas in Fabre mansion for a scene and 20,000 Gald. From there, go down to the port and head toward the docks to find the merchant. Fork over the 20,000 Gald you just got in exchange for Arcana Albertis. Luke learns the arte Demon Fist. ---------------------------- [CNE01] Contamination Effect ---------------------------- Part 1/4 Location: Baticul Start: audience with King Ingobert Cutoff: enter the Abandoned Factory Prerequisites: none Go to the port for a scene with Jade. To do this immediately after the previous sidequest, leave via the aircar and come back for the scene. ---- Note ---- While you're in Baticul, pick up at least five Rice. Try not to cook things with Rice for a while so that you have them for a later sidequest a way down the road. Don't worry too much if you accidentally cook them -- you'll still be able to complete the sidequest; you'll just have to go a little out of your way to do so. If you're working on getting some cooking titles, you may as well keep cooking your Rice and do this the long way to get some more time to cook. ------------------------ [JWG01] Jewel of Gardios ------------------------ Part 1/3 Location: Baticul Start: talk to Susanne after returning to Baticul Cutoff: conference in Yulia City Prerequisites: complete part 1 of Guy's Artes and part 1 of Arcane Arte Books Find Pere in the entrance hall of Fabre manor and talk to him for a scene. ------------------------- [SGT01] Sigmund Tactician ------------------------- Part 1/1 Location: Baticul Start: speak to Miyagi in Miyagi Dojo Cutoff: none Prerequisites: fight at least 300 battles, view all of Miyagi's tutorials Go to Miyagi Dojo and talk to Miyagi with Guy as your on-screen character for a scene. Guy will get the Sigmund Tactician title. You probably don't have 300 battles at this point unless you carried them over from a previous playthrough (and the scene has a spoiler for this point in the game in it anyway), so I'll remind you about this one later. -------------------- [MCF03] Master Chefs -------------------- Part 3/19 Location: Baticul Start: speak to Miyagi in Miyagi Dojo Cutoff: none Prerequisites: none Stay at the inn in Baticul to get the recipe for Fried Rice. ------------------- [GYA02] Guy's Artes ------------------- Part 2/7 Location: Desert Oasis Start: enter Desert Oasis Cutoff: none Prerequisites: complete part 1 Enter the Grocery in the Desert Oasis and talk to Gee, the old man in the back. You'll get the Hod Citizen Registry. ---- Note ---- For a sidequest down the road, you'll be needing some Gold Dust. You can get it by stealing it from Lesser Pans in the Zao Ruins. While you're at it, make sure you get a Rock, since you'll be needing one of those too. Lesser Pans and Earth Spirits in the Zao Ruins both drop them -- no stealing needed. To steal items from enemies, you'll need to equip a grass chamber on a compatible arte (such as Raging Blast for Luke or Void Tempest for Guy -- each character has one or two). Repeatedly use the arte with the grass chamber equipped to increase the chance of activating the steal effect. When you do steal something, you'll see a note at the top of the screen informing you of what you stole. -------------------- [ALN02] Ant Lion Man -------------------- Part 2/6 Location: Chesedonia Start: clear Zao Ruins Cutoff: visit the Malkuth Consulate in Chesedonia Prerequisites: complete part 1 The Ant Lion Man wants a Scimitar and a Magic Lens. Hand them over and receive an Orange Gel in return. (Don't worry; this sidequest will be worth the trouble later on.) ------------------------ [CRP01] Curious Princess ------------------------ Part 1/1 Location: Chesedonia Start: clear the Abandoned Factory Cutoff: none Prerequisites: make 5 items at Din's shop, check the first 6 Search Points Enter Din's Shop and talk to Din for a scene and the title Curious Princess for Natalia. This can be a bit hard to get now because of all the items you have to make and Search Points you have to find, so I'll remind you to do it later when it's a little easier. ---- Note ---- Choral Castle is just a short side trip away from Deo Pass and Kaitzur Naval Port. If you haven't fought the Sword Dancer already, do so now. ------------------- [GYA03] Guy's Artes ------------------- Part 3/7 Location: Kaitzur Start: sail from Chesedonia to Kaitzur Naval Port on your way to Akzeriuth Cutoff: none Prerequisites: complete part 2 Take a detour up to Kaitzur and find the next member of the arcane artes council on the Malkuth side of Kaitzur. He's standing just south of the inn. Guy learns Tempest. ---------------------- MILESTONE 1: AKZERIUTH ---------------------- -------------------- [MCF04] Master Chefs -------------------- Part 4/19 Location: Yulia City Start: enter Yulia City Cutoff: none Prerequisites: none Examine the notebook in the room downstairs from Tear's room to learn the recipe for Ramen. ------------------------ [YCI01] Yulia City Items ------------------------ Part 1/3 Location: Yulia City Start: enter Yulia City Cutoff: leave Yulia City Prerequisites: none Outside of Yulia City (that is, outside the city part of it -- where there's that long walkway out to the world map), look to the left right near the entrance into the city itself. It's across from the path to Tear's room. There's a guy standing there who needs some help. Give him the three Apple Gels he asks for. ----------------------- [NLA01] Natalia's Artes ----------------------- Part 1/2 Location: Port Sheridan Start: leave Yulia City Cutoff: enter Ortion Cavern Prerequisites: none Take a side trip to Port Sheridan (across the channel and north of Port Belkend, which is where you're supposed to be going). Go to the left side of the port for a scene. Natalia gets the arte Gallant Barrage, and you wind up in Daath Bay. -------------------- [MCF05] Master Chefs -------------------- Part 5/19 Location: Belkend Start: enter Belkend Cutoff: clear Ortion Cavern? Prerequisites: none Go to the place where the road forks in three ways and go south. Take a right, and instead of going up the stairs, go under the platform. Walk up to the dead end for a scene. Help the guy out to get the Soba Noodles recipe. ---------------------- [CDC01] Character Disc ---------------------- Part 1/1 Location: Yulia City Start: Luke cuts his hair Cutoff: none Prerequisites: none Go through the door down the stairs from Tear's room. Inside you'll get the Character Disc, which lets you look at various characters along with all the costumes you have for party characters. (Side note: while you're there, check out the chest in the back for a capacity core.) ------------------------ [YCI02] Yulia City Items ------------------------ Part 2/3 Location: Yulia City Start: Luke cuts his hair Cutoff: get the Albiore Prerequisites: complete part 1 Back to the same guy from part 1. Now he wants five Rice. If you don't have five Rice, you can buy them later on and come back. I'll remind you when we get to that point. -------------------------- [TFH01] Tear's Fonic Hymns -------------------------- Part 1/2 Location: Yulia City Start: Luke cuts his hair Cutoff: none? Prerequisites: none When you try to enter the conference room to talk to Teodoro, you'll be stopped by a woman named Layla. You can find her in her room below the conference room before or after you talk to Teodoro. Tear learns the Third Fonic Hymn, Holy Song, in the scene. ----------------------- [MBH01] Music Box House ----------------------- Part 1/9 Location: Daath Start: enter Daath Cutoff: none? Prerequisites: none Go up the stairs to the left immediately beyond the entrance of the city and stand by the crates to get Prelude. ------------------------------- [HRT01] Hyperresonance Training ------------------------------- Part 1/4 Location: Daath Start: enter Daath Cutoff: leave Daath after clearing Oracle Headquarters Prerequisites: none Stay at the inn in Daath for a scene with Luke and Tear. -------------------- [MCF06] Master Chefs -------------------- Part 6/19 Location: Daath Start: enter Daath Cutoff: none Prerequisites: none Talk to the chef standing in the small restaurant near Daath's inn. It's just up the road on the same side. He'll give you the recipe for Pizza. -------------------- [MCF07] Master Chefs -------------------- Part 7/19 Location: Daath Start: speak to Tritheim in the cathedral Cutoff: none Prerequisites: none In the entrance hall of the cathedral, go into the library (the door on the left). Examine the book on the table for the Sushi recipe. ------------------- [GYA04] Guy's Artes ------------------- Part 4/7 Location: Daath Start: clear Oracle Headquarters Cutoff: none Prerequisites: complete part 3 Go to the First Monument (the stone pillar thingy to the right of the stairs to the cathedral) and talk to the next arcane artes council guy, who's standing in front of it. ---- Note ---- If you didn't do part two of the Yulia City Items quest, take care of it now. You can buy the rice in Baticul and use Aramis Spring to get back to Yulia City. ------------------------- [WHS01] Warehouse Cleanup ------------------------- Part 1/4 Location: Keterburg Bay Start: enter Keterburg Bay Cutoff: none Prerequisites: none The Keterburg Warehouse is almost directly above the dock -- it's the only door in Keterburg Bay that has a person standing in front of it. He wants you to organize his warehouse. By doing so, you'll get a Stun Bracelet, a Pineapple Gel, a Rebirth Doll, and 5000 Gald. I won't explain how to do it here because it'll be tedious and confusing in text, but you can search YouTube for something along the lines of "Tales of the Abyss warehouse" and you should be able to find a tutorial. -------------------- [MCF08] Master Chefs -------------------- Part 8/19 Location: Keterburg Bay Start: enter Keterburg Bay Cutoff: none Prerequisites: none Enter the building on the left and examine the green notebook on the bench for the Salad recipe. ---------------------- [GUC01] Grown-Up Child ---------------------- Part 1/1 Location: Keterburg Start: enter Keterburg Cutoff: none Prerequisites: none Enter the Casino for a scene. Anise receives the title Grown-Up Child. ------------------------- [LBM01] Labyrinth Mansion ------------------------- Part 1/3 Location: Keterburg Start: enter Keterburg Cutoff: none? Prerequisites: none Find a man standing outside a large house on the east side of Keterburg and talk to him. Scene. -------------------------- [EGW01] Easygoing Waitress -------------------------- Part 1/1 Location: Keterburg Start: enter Keterburg Cutoff: none Prerequisites: none Go to the second floor of the Hotel in Keterburg. Head through the door to the right and talk to the guy standing nearby. Time to play the waitress mini-game. Complete at least one level of the mini-game to get the title Easygoing Waitress for Tear. Check out the waitress mini-game tutorial appended at the end of this guide if you'd like help. ----------------------- [CHM01] Childhood Manor ----------------------- Part 1/1 Location: Keterburg Start: enter Keterburg Cutoff: none? Prerequisites: none On the west side of Keterburg, take a right immediately before Nephry's house. There'll be a little scene with another of Anise's marriage schemes just down the road. ------------------- [SKV01] Skit Viewer ------------------- Part 1/1 Location: Keterburg Start: enter Keterburg Cutoff: none Prerequisites: clear the game Go to the northeast igloo in the northern part of town where the kids are playing. Inside is an Ant Lion Man who will let you view past skits. -------------------- [SWD02] Sword Dancer -------------------- Part 2/3 Location: World Map (Search Point on Rugnica continent) Start: land at Rotelro Bridge Cutoff: clear the Absorption Gate Prerequisites: complete part 1 This one's easy to come back to when your levels are a little higher, so I'll remind you a little way down the road. If you do want to take on the Sword Dancer now, though, it's best to do so before entering Theor Forest. The second Sword Dancer is northeast of Rotelro Bridge and southeast of Theor Forest. East side of the path, west side of the river, closer to Theor Forest than to Rotelro Bridge. Examine the search point to fight him. -------------------- [MCF09] Master Chefs -------------------- Part 9/19 Location: Grand Chokmah Start: Jade rejoins the party in Grand Chokmah Cutoff: none Prerequisites: none After you find Jade in the top floor of the bar, talk to the guy behind the counter on the first floor to get the recipe for Curry. ---- Note ---- When you return to the inn to meet up with Guy, you'll be offered a quick jump to St. Binah. If you want to do these sidequests, choose not to take the quick jump and walk to St. Binah once you've finished the sidequests. It isn't far to go, so I'd recommend doing them now. ------------------------- [WHS02] Warehouse Cleanup ------------------------- Part 2/4 Location: Grand Chokmah Start: Guy rejoins the party in Grand Chokmah Cutoff: none Prerequisites: none You can find the Grand Chokmah Warehouse on the first floor of the bar where you found Jade earlier -- there's now a guy standing in front of the door in the back. Organize it to get a Strange Mark, a Lemon Gel, a Lollipop, and 5000 Gald. ------------------- [GYA05] Guy's Artes ------------------- Part 5/7 Location: Grand Chokmah Start: Guy rejoins the party in Grand Chokmah Cutoff: none Prerequisites: complete part 4 On the second floor of the bar, talk to the old man by the barrel at the top of the stairs. Scene. ------------------------ [FBS01] Forbidden Spells ------------------------ Part 1/11 Location: Grand Chokmah Start: Guy rejoins the party in Grand Chokmah Cutoff: none? Prerequisites: none SPOILER WARNING: It seems that this sidequest is available earlier than it should be, and so the scene contains an inconsistency that is also a rather major spoiler. If you'd like to do this one later, when it won't be a spoiler, just watch for my reminder. Head over to the Malkuth Military Headquarters west of the palace. Go in, to the south, up the stairs, and into the briefing room on the left. You'll find Sesemann there. Talk to him for a scene and the Ancient Scroll. ---------------------------- [BDF03] Black Dream Fan Club ---------------------------- Part 3/3 Location: St. Binah Start: enter St. Binah the second time (it's possible earlier, but now makes the most sense) Cutoff: leave St. Binah Prerequisites: complete part 2 Remember Ayn, the guy who owes you 800 Gald for a magazine? Find him on the eastern side of the city to get your money refunded. ---- Note ---- While you're in St. Binah, swing by the weapons shop and pick up 5 Maces. You'll be needing them for a sidequest a little way down the road. ------------------------- [WHS03] Warehouse Cleanup ------------------------- Part 3/4 Location: Port Belkend Start: leave St. Binah to go to Sheridan Cutoff: none Prerequisites: none Enter Port Belkend and go left instead of up the stairs. Talk to the guy by the door to organize a warehouse. You'll get an Apple Gel, a Dark Seal, the Great Pirate, and 5000 Gald in return. ------------------- [GYA06] Guy's Artes ------------------- Part 6/7 Location: Belkend Start: leave St. Binah to go to Sheridan (again, it's possible earlier, but now makes the most sense) Cutoff: none Prerequisites: complete part 5 As long as you're headed for Sheridan, make a quick stop by Belkend since it isn't far away. Head into the city and head south from that platform with the three sets of stairs where the road forks. Talk to the artes council guy at the foot of the stairs by the big spinning fon machine. ------------------------- [WHS04] Warehouse Cleanup ------------------------- Part 4/4 Location: Port Sheridan Start: enter Port Sheridan Cutoff: none Prerequisites: none The Sheridan Warehouse is on the left side of Port Sheridan -- the door with the sailor standing in front of it. Clean it up to find an Apple Gel, an All-Divide, a Holy Ring, and 5000 Gald. If this is your last warehouse, Anise will get the Push & Pull Girl title. ------------------ [BSM01] Blacksmith ------------------ Part 1/3 Location: Sheridan Start: enter Sheridan Cutoff: none Prerequisites: none Talk to the guy in the room on the left side of the Equipment Shops. You'll need Iron Sand, Gold Dust, and a Rock to craft something, which you can find: Iron Sand: Search Points 6, 9, and 16 (see the world map on GameFAQs) dropped by Iron Crabs (Aramis Spring) Gold Dust: Search Point 9 steal from Lesser Pans (Zao Ruins) Rock: Search Points 7, 13, and 14 dropped by Earth Spirits and Lesser Pans (Zao Ruins) You can make armor, a helmet, or a circlet (which is actually an armband, not headgear). The mini-game isn't too hard. Watch the smith's words and Luke's mood to see how you're doing. Complete the mini-game to get an item based on what you chose to craft: Armor: Battlesuit Helmet: Cross Helm Circlet: Gold Bracelet If you don't have the items you need to craft, you'll be able to pick them up easily later. I'll remind you when we get there. ------------------------------- [HRT02] Hyperresonance Training ------------------------------- Part 2/4 Location: Sheridan Start: enter Sheridan Cutoff: get the Albiore Prerequisites: complete part 1 Stay at the inn for another scene with Luke and Tear. -------------------- [MCF10] Master Chefs -------------------- Part 10/19 Location: Sheridan Start: enter Sheridan Cutoff: none Prerequisites: none Go into the Bar/Item Shop below the Inn. There's a green notebook lying on a small table on the right; examine it to learn the recipe for Udon Noodles. ----------------------- [MBH02] Music Box House ----------------------- Part 2/9 Location: Sheridan Start: enter Sheridan Cutoff: none? Prerequisites: none? Enter the Music Box House in the northeast part of the city for a scene. ---------------------------- MILESTONE 2: GET THE ALBIORE ---------------------------- ------------------------ [YCI03] Yulia City Items ------------------------ Part 3/3 Location: Yulia City Start: get the Albiore Cutoff: clear the Absorption Gate Prerequisites: complete part 2 Our friend in Yulia City is in need of five Maces now. Why is beyond me, but hand them over anyway. This sidequest is done, but I promise it wasn't entirely pointless. Having it completed opens up some opportunities for a slew of titles later on. If you don't have the Maces, you'll be able to get them later and still complete this quest. I'll remind you, so just go on ahead. ------------------------- [AAB02] Arcane Arte Books ------------------------- Part 2/6 Location: Yulia City Start: get the Albiore Cutoff: none Prerequisites: complete part 1 Talk to the guy from St. Binah outside Tear's house. We'll keep going with this one in a little while. ---- Note ---- Just before the start point of the sidequest below, your party will split and take care of two different errands that will have you running across the field. Avoiding battles during this part will get you some items at the end of it. When you're working with Jade's party, make sure you avoid enough battles to get the Magical Pouch at the end. You'll be wanting it later on. -------------------- [ALN03] Ant Lion Man -------------------- Part 3/6 Location: Chesedonia Start: regroup in Chesedonia after splitting the party Cutoff: clear Zao Ruins the second time Prerequisites: complete part 2 Find everyone's favorite mysterious item trading guy in his alleyway and hand over a Miracle Gel, a Panacea Bottle, and an Apple. He will happily give you a Thief's Cape in return. ---- Note ---- Notice how high prices are in shops right now? Well, prices of both things you purchase and things you sell have skyrocketed, and there's really no reason to keep all of your old equipment. You may as well sell it now and get the extra Gald. It'll come in handy down the road -- there are a few unfortunately expensive sidequests. Also, if you want to increase the amount you get even a little more, equip Anise's Push & Pull Girl title from cleaning all those warehouses. Doing so should increase sale prices by 3%. Also, if you want to see an extra skit, you can get one by resting in the Chesedonia inn after speaking with Astor. If you missed Yulia City Items part 3, pick up the Maces now. You should be able to get them from the southernmost weapons shop in Chesedonia. You won't be able to get them after going to the Zao Ruins, so get them even though they'll be expensive. Otherwise you'll have to do it the hard way and craft them in Din's Shop (as I had to when I missed this one once. It's doable, but not a recommended course of action). However you get them, you'll be able to bring them to Yulia City shortly. Two last things here -- first, after you talk to Astor, speak to the person standing in the hall space right outside his chamber. You'll get 3 Melange Gels (which are called "Mixed Gels" here for some reason. Likely just a translation error), 3 Life Bottles, and 2 Panacea Bottles as a gift from Astor to help you out. Then, go north from Astor's foyer and through the door on the left in that hall space. Examine the bedside table to obtain Time Traveling Hero for Anise. ---------------------- [TSP02] Tear's Pendant ---------------------- Part 2/2 Location: Chesedonia Start: enter Chesedonia after clearing Zao Ruins the second time Cutoff: none Prerequisites: none Speaking of expensive sidequests... The coachman from Tataroo Valley is in the same place as he was before. Talk to him, then head for Grand Chokmah. The guy you want is in the Grand Chokmah shopping center, and he wants 100,000 Gald. When you have it, pay it to him to obtain Tear's Pendant. I'll remind you later, so if you don't have it now, don't worry about it. ---- Note ---- If you haven't gotten Natalia's Curious Princess title yet, now isn't a bad time to do it since you'll be doing a bit of flying around. Check out Cyllya's world map for the locations of Search Points 1-6 if you haven't already hit them. To see the ones you've already found, open your in-game world map and look at the "Other" tab. Search Points 1-4 and 6 are currently in the Qliphoth; Search Point 5 is in the Outer Lands. Din's Shop is on the northern side of Chesedonia, right by the entrance. Take a look at the Din's Shop Guide for how to make items. ----------------------- [MBH03] Music Box House ----------------------- Part 3/9 Location: Grand Chokmah Start: enter Chesedonia after clearing Zao Ruins the second time Cutoff: none Prerequisites: none? Go around the outside of the shopping center to find a hidden door on in the back on its right side. Open the chest inside to get Purity, another music disc. ----------------------- [KGP01] King's Portrait ----------------------- Part 1/1 Location: Aramis Spring Start: enter Chesedonia after clearing Zao Ruins the second time Cutoff: none? Prerequisites: none Go a little way up the slope for a scene. Go into the cave, take a left, and you'll find the guy outside. Use Mieu Fire to rescue him. He gives you the King's Portrait for your trouble. Hm, this might come in handy soon. ----------------------- [MBH04] Music Box House ----------------------- Part 4/9 Location: Choral Castle Start: enter Chesedonia after clearing Zao Ruins the second time Cutoff: none Prerequisites: complete the King's Portrait quest Enter the castle and go up the stairs on the right. Head outside onto the balcony. Go in the other door and to the back where the two chairs are. Go up to them for a scene. It does seem to imply that a certain someone may have drawn them.... Into the door and grab Requiem from the treasure chest. ---- Note ---- As long as you're in the general area, now isn't a bad time to take on the second Sword Dancer if you have the supplies and health for it and haven't done so already. He's at a Search Point west and slightly north from Engeve. Also, If you're still working on Yulia City Items part 3, swing by and drop off the five Maces with our friend there to complete the quest. -------------------------- [CAF01] Cecille and Frings -------------------------- Part 1/5 Location: Engeve Start: enter Chesedonia after clearing Zao Ruins the second time Cutoff: enter Daath after clearing Zao Ruins the second time Prerequisites: none Enter Engeve. There's a scene in front of Rose's house. Into the inn, talk to Cecille. Leave and head for Kaitzur, Kimlascan side (the south). Go into the building on the left to find Count Almandine. Back to Engeve and to Rose's house. Next, Kaitzur, Malkuth side (north). Scene. Before you leave, talk to Frings. Then to Kaitzur Naval Port, and into the Kimlasca Base. Get Cecille's Sword. Engeve again, Rose's house. Get Frings' Letter. Return to Cecille in Kaitzur Naval Port. Now to Chesedonia, Astor's Mansion. (Note that you can't fly through the eastern part of the Zao Desert due to sandstorms, so be sure to go around.) Get the Memento Ring. Kaitzur, Malkuth side to speak with Frings (fly around to avoid sandstorms again), and then Kaitzur Naval Port, Kimlasca Base one last time. Congratulations, you've finished the most tedious part of this sidequest. ------------------------------- [HRT03] Hyperresonance Training ------------------------------- Part 3/4 Location: Daath Start: enter Daath after clearing Zao Ruins the second time Cutoff: ??? Prerequisites: complete part 2 Inn. Stay. Scene. ------------------- [GNV01] Guy and Van ------------------- Part 1/1 Location: Belkend Start: Jade deciphers the ancient book in Belkend Cutoff: peace conference in Yulia City Prerequisites: none Stay at the inn. You can choose whether to follow Guy or not; do so to view the scene. -------------------- [MCF11] Master Chefs -------------------- Part 11/19 Location: Belkend Start: meet Class I in Belkend Cutoff: none Prerequisites: none Right after meeting Class I, go through the door to the north (or, if you're coming to the entrance from Fon Machine Lab 1, go north, north, east into the Replica Lab, north, and north). You are now in Van's office. Examine the green notebook on the bookshelf for a rather amusing little scene and the Egg Bowl recipe. ----------------------- [CSZ01] Chasing Spinoza ----------------------- Part 1/1 Location: Fourth Monument Hill Start: meet with the governor in Belkend Cutoff: enter Daath after meeting with the governor in Belkend Prerequisites: none As the start and cutoff points tell you, DO NOT TAKE THE QUICK JUMP TO DAATH. If you do, you will miss this sidequest. This sidequest can take you around in several different orders, depending on which city you go to first. I've listed one below; if you choose to go to a different city first, make sure you wind up in Grand Chokmah at some point to get the Dark Wings Badge. Start with Fourth Monument Hill. Scene. Now head for Keterburg. Scene. Next, Grand Chokmah, and dock at the harbor. One more scene, and York gives you the Dark Wings Badge as a consolation prize. Head back to Fourth Monument Hill for a final scene. Another potential order is Sheridan, Fourth Monument Hill, Grand Chokmah (dock at the harbor), and back to Fourth Monument Hill. ---- Note ---- Also, if you weren't able to do part one of the Blacksmith quest earlier, you may have the items for it now that you've returned to the Zao Ruins. Stop by Sheridan if you need to take care of it. -------------------------- [WIB01] Where It All Began -------------------------- Part 1/1 Location: Tataroo Valley Start: enter Tataroo Valley for the second time Cutoff: none Prerequisites: none Head for the flower meadow by the sea from the very beginning of the game for a short scene. Technically, you can trigger this scene earlier, but it makes the most sense to do it now since you're here. ----------------------- [SRG01] Sorcerer's Ring ----------------------- Part 1/2 Location: Tataroo Valley Start: enter Tataroo Valley for the second time Cutoff: none Prerequisites: none Cross the river into new area of Tataroo Valley and go south and then east when you can. Just after you turn east, there's a break in the bushes leading up to a rather suspicious boulder with some vines against the wall. Hit it with Mieu Attack and go on in. Head right until you see a cluster of fonons for a scene and an upgrade to the Sorcerer's Ring: Mieu Wing. Use it around this area to hit some switches and pick up a Knight Mace, a Life Bottle, and a Wing Bottle. You can also use it to climb up onto certain tree limbs and get treasure chests. -------------------- [MCF12] Master Chefs -------------------- Part 12/19 Location: Tataroo Valley Start: take the vibration frequency measurement at the Sephiroth Cutoff: none? Prerequisites: none Return to the flower meadow for a scene and the recipe for Cake. ------------------------------- [HRT04] Hyperresonance Training ------------------------------- Part 4/4 Location: Sheridan Start: clear Tataroo Valley for the second time Cutoff: ??? Prerequisites: complete part 3 Stay at the inn for the final training scene. Tear earns the title Big Sister. ------------------ [PRM01] Proud Maid ------------------ Part 1/1 Location: Baticul Start: Natalia gets the title Child of Lanvaldear Cutoff: none Prerequisites: none In the castle entrance hall, go through the door on the right. Go up the stairs when you can, to the right again, and into Natalia's Chamber. Talk to the maid, watch the ensuing scene, and Tear gains the Proud Maid costume title. ------------------------- [AAB03] Arcane Arte Books ------------------------- Part 3/6 Location: Baticul Start: Natalia gets the title Child of Lanvaldear Cutoff: none Prerequisites: complete part 2 Go to Fabre manor and talk to Susanne. Scene. Luke gets 40,000 Gald. ------------------------- [APD01] A Princess's Duty ------------------------- Part 1/1 Location: Baticul Start: Natalia gets the title Child of Lanvaldear Cutoff: none Prerequisites: none Go along the path to the right of the inn in the center of the city. Scene. ---------------- [CLM01] Coliseum ---------------- Part 1/1 Location: Baticul Start: Natalia gets the title Child of Lanvaldear Cutoff: none Prerequisites: none You can now fight in the Coliseum. It'll be easier as you get further on in the game since your characters will grow stronger and you'll have better equipment. It opens now, though, which is why I'm listing it here. I'll remind you later when it might be a little easier. By winning the Advanced level of the Singles competition with a character, you'll earn a title and a weapon for him or her. Each character gets his or her best weapon as a reward except for Jade, but he is the only one who gets a costume title out of it. Luke: Sword of Swords, Soul Crush Tear: Perfect Healer, Blue Crystal Rod Jade: Battle Master, Dunamis Anise: Devastating Cutie, Grand Cross Guy: Golden Knight, Shakunage Natalia: Coliseum Princess, Celestial Star By completing the Beginner level of Singles with any character, you'll unlock the Baticuloon mini-game. After unlocking it, you can practice at Miyagi Dojo under the option "Mr. Miyagi's Secret Training." The first time you complete the Advanced level of the Team competition, you'll be thrown into an additional battle against four cameo characters from previous games in the Tales series. It's a fairly hard battle but has some good item drops, and it's fun if you recognize the characters. ---- Note ---- You've probably fought 300 battles by now, so stop by Miyagi Dojo and pick up the Sigmund Tactician title for Guy. If you don't get the scene, make sure you've viewed all of Miyagi's tutorials (not including the "secret training"), that you have fought 300 battles, and that Guy is the on-screen character. -------------------- [MCF13] Master Chefs -------------------- Part 13/19 Location: Keterburg
