In chapter 2 you could farm fangs in the area near the zombie dragon, though you won’t have your loot finder skill there. The basic loot chance is 20%, I believe.

Go to the Dreamshrine. The Monsters there have a 20% chance to drop fangs, and they aren’t particularly rare either.

Against Animus and almost any other boss: have Elwyen play runic rhapsody and have Solaar constantly use spirit graft to increase her spirit. As she gets more powerful the spells from your enemy will weaken and once she gets to 100 all offensive spells are completely negated (damage-wise). I also like to have Gloria on my team because she’s the most versatile with the natural elements, but Legion can sometimes be good too. Against Carnos I use Gloria and Legion and the last person doesn’t seem to matter much, though a healer is nice and I find Solaar to be an excellent “support” all around. A nice way to bring a boss’s power down faster than just using Elwyen and and Solaar (or if you need to reduce its physical strength instead) is to use Gloria’s attacks in addition, though the rhapsody method has better immediate effect and is faster overall.

I just used Cursed Beret, haste fairy, health scarab, and a lot of natural element damage potions (bottle o’ acid, alchemist’s fire, liquid lightning, and really cold water). Meraeador was under level 20. Also, if you have found the Maismal citadel just put Meraeador in your party and he will level up very quickly which should make it easy for anybody to get through their solo tournament. In any case you should stock up on Chocolate milk it heals 1000 hp and removes all negative status effects. they can be found in the dream realm shop, that is the magic shop in Goznor

3) Easiest way to get experience: Go to Lifewood, and enter the Dream version of the Fairy Village. You’ll run into a lot of pixies. Elywen’s Dolorous Dirge should kill them in one turn (with their haste).
Fairy Dust- Fairy

lies they start with addle gauss the it confues elywen so she stops hor dolorous dirge due to addle gauss all the did was get a an instant game over

Confusion resistance. Period.

Give him high AGL, preferably the Boots of Celerity. And some Bottles O’ Acid too.

Well, technically, but the Guardians and secondary bosses (The World’s Saviours and Muriance) also count toward the chalices. I tried it myself and they get 1% each.

And Muriance’s acolytes too?

That could be, but I never leave something before a boss, and I play on the safe side (I know they stay put now after you finish a temple).

Just a random comment: Elwyen (I had to check the game for spelling) can actually equip the Magic Damage reactions, but she can’t master them because she doesn’t have any magical attacks to react with. Incidentally, while she requires a lot of Spirit to do her job properly, she has no use for the MP it gives her.

Ultra Random Comment

If a monster dies by poison everyone will get experience as if they killed it…..

First off, the experience a character gets when something dies from poison is actually less than what they would have gotten if they killed it with an attack. At least, that’s how it works when something is killed by Elwyen’s Dolorous Dirge, which is far more practical when it comes to killing things, unless it’s a boss that for some reason isn’t immune. Also, I noticed that Zach also can equip magic damage reactions but can’t use them. Interestingly, Elwyen requires SPR to be effective, but doesn’t have any use for MP, while Zach has no use for spirit except to give him more MP, and even then only if you have his best weapon.

Point taken, but when a friend killed a bone demon by a noxious bomb poison, it was quite effective.
Perhaps, but the poison technique with the POISON yielded results, but i’ll need to research a bit…

HELL YEAH!
We get roughly equal experience depending on level, but everyone gets experience as if they killed it. My point stands.

That may be, but my comment IS random.

Use Gloria for the Serpent fight… Her Null Water Once is the most useful skill there. As she’s almost always doing that, she won’t deal much damage in the fight, but Razor Leaf is useful if she DOESN’T need to cast it.

I used Gloria, Solaar, and Sharla. Solaar is a VERY good character if you don’t have many Phoenix Downs/Pinions.

True, but I trolled the Serpent BAD with Mardek solo, just give him trilobite armor and decent defence and he’s nearly indestructible. He heals from tsunami. You can also use Meraeador and his Regen/Mirrilixir Potion sprays to maximize survivability.

Solaar……will die in one turn unless he is defended and regened. But his Resurrect is a unique skill, plus if he has Viper Claw he can poison the Serpent AND deal fair damage.

Or just toss an effing Noxious Bomb with a few Acids if you are willing to spare them.

Just cast Null Water Once. It means you deal some decent damage with the other characters, and the Serpent deals no damage to you. Unless he physically attacks you, in which case he’ll K.O. you in one hit unless he targets Mardek. But if he does do that, just Heal if it’s Mardek and Resurrect if it’s not, or if it’s Solaar, use a PhoenixDown/Pinion.

Yeah, I used a Noxious Bomb just to speed it up. =P

So the ideal setup for Serpent would be:
Meraeador for potion mass healing(BTW you could use him to just slap Serpent with Thermal spanner until STR hits 0, in which case all you need to worry about is the Tsunami.)
Gloria for life reduction and Null Water Once, Earth Heal, Barkskin, Other skills to reduce Stats.
Mardek for individual shields(Meraeador will take care of mass Shield and Regen) and Main attack.
Solaar for Resurrection and Poisoning/Earth melee damage.

 
Flag Post

Solaar for mass heals would be better, as potions that Mereador sprays with go to half power on everyone. Otherwise, it’s a good strategy.

 
Flag Post

Merry goes well with Mirrilixir, Healthy potion and Potion spray.
But Solaar can also Mass heal, the thing is, all your characters can heal, so they are almost impossible to beat unless it’s a 1HKO

Or you can put a trilobite armor and be happy (tsunami will heal you instead of damaging)

Thermal spanner reduces DEF, not STR.

Basic attack is still gonna hurt. Unless you go with blood blade (or whatever it’s called) and wail away at it. Legion could berserk Mardek, and give him a Speedy Juice for insane damage.
