Question: Is there an easy way to level up?
Answer: Go to the sunken ship in the forbidden area and hit the treasure chest
full of rippers (igors) with the biphron flame. You go up 1000+ exp points
(even more with the erynis soul equipped) in about 5 seconds.
THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ARE FROM QUEST64FREAK: (AKA SHPAZA)
Question: What are the items that appear in hard mode only, and where are they?
Death's Sickle- In the room right before Death, in the upper right corner.
You'll need the Giant Bat soul to get it.
Death's Robe- A few room before where you got Death's Sickle. You can't miss
it. Once again, you'll need the Giant Bat soul.
Silver Handgun- In the same room as the Balmung, after one of the challenges in
Tear of Blood- In the upper right corner of the room before Graham.
Question: How do I get past the waterfall to get to the Forbidden Area?
Answer: To get into the Forbidden Area, you must have the Undine soul and
either the Curly, Devil or Manticore set. Stand to the far left(under the
picture carved on the wall) and use whatever soul you equipped. You should go
straight through the waterfall. If you don't make it, you weren't far enough to
Question: How do I get past the rabbit with the watch?
Answer: You won't be able to get past the rabbit(Chronomage) until you have
the Galamoth Soul. You won't get the Galamoth Soul until near the end of the
game, so don't worry about it for now. If you want his soul, just get close and
wait for a "?" to appear over his head. Shortly after it appears, you will be
able to damage him.
Question: How do I catch the Skyfish?
Answer: To catch the Skyfish, you must first have the Chronomage soul(look
above to see how to get it.) Find an area where you see a white sparkling thing
fly across the top of the screen. One area is where you get to fight the Big
Golem again, and the long hallway full of Tritons. Stop time(using the
Chronomage soul) as soon as it appears on screen and kill it. It still moves
fairly fast even with time being stopped, so you'll want to get it as early as
Question: What is "Boss Rush?" What is it for?
Answer: Boss Rush is an extra feature you unlock after getting the "good
ending." You start with the first boss in the Game(Creaking Skull) and work
your way through all the bosses. Boss Rush is the only way to get three of the
weapons in the game. To get them, you must complete Boss Rush in under 6
minutes(Excalibur,) 5 minutes(Positron Rifle,) and 4 minutes(Valmanway.)
Question: How do I get the "good ending?"
Answer: For the good ending, you must have 3 specific souls equipped from the
beginning to the end of the fight with Graham. These souls are Flame
Demon(easiest to get in the room around the Legion boss fight,) Giant
Bat(You'll get it for free right after the fight with Balore,) and Succubus(in
The Arena or Top Area.) Once you beat him with those three souls, you'll be
able to continue playing the game even after you beat him. Now go back to the
"black wall" in the section where you warp from one room to another. In there,
you will fight Julius. After you defeat him, you will have access to the Realm
\of Chaos. Make your way through there, and fight Chaos. After you win, you'll
have access to Hard Mode, New Game+, and Julius.
Question: How does the Headhunter soul work?
Answer: The Headhunter soul gives you +1 to STR, DEF and INT for every 16 souls
you collect. It does not have to be equipped for it to gain strength. It maxes
out at +33 to stats.
Question: What is the Chaos Ring? What does it do?
Answer: The Chaos Ring is an accessory you can only get once you have 100% of
the souls. Once you get all the souls, go the the Chaotic Realm. Once you get
to a room the looks like the room before Death(there will be a Lubicant and an
Erinys) go through the upper-left exit. You should see the Chaos Ring on the
ground. This gives you infinite MP, and is almost the only way to get the
Valmanway in Boss Rush mode.
Question: Do I have another chance to get (insert boss here)'s soul?
Answer: Any boss that only appears once in the game, you will ALWAYS get their
soul(Headhunter, Death, and Balore.) Bosses that you can find as normal enemies
later in the game have a fairly good chance of giving it to you the first time,
but when you fight them as normal enemies their souls are a bit harder to
get(Creaking Skull, Manticore, Great Armor, Big Golem.) The ONLY exception to
this rule is the Legion boss. To get it's soul, you must first destroy it's
four outer shells before you take out its core. If you destroy the four shells
first, you always get the soul.
