People should get a badge for beating the game without ever using Gloria/Elwyen :p

Hmm, yeah, my bad there. Mardek’s slashes should suffice anyway.

I don’t think so, he’s not really that difficult…btw, if you have Mardek’s elemental slashes and Gloria, you should be able to kill him fast – Mardek’s ele slash does like 1k+ damage to him, and he has only 5k hp. When he’s aether, you could use Legion’s gemsplosion with a candriathope equipped or just hit him with anything so that he changes his element to one you can exploit.

It’s interesting how Solaar is genderless, according to its dialogue, but in its dreamstone, the Seer (supposedly also a runare) is mentioned as a “xe” (she).

The Master Crystal just keeps changing his element, hit him with whatever he’s weak against at his current element and it should be a breeze.

@nukerfreak

Elwyen’s buffs work on your party only (Vigorous, Runic, Spirit Song, etc.). Dolorous Dirge and Requiem damage your enemies, and Ballad of Balance affects all.

@leopard123

There are 6 candriathopes in total in the game, I think. I don’t remember exactly where you find each one of them, but I’m rather sure there is one for sale in Aeropolis, one or two in the secret shop in Goznor, and you find at least one in the dreamwoods.

The drak fang can be bought in Aeropolis, from the YALORT Temple pedlar I think.

About Gloria/Elwyen, I’d pick Gloria if you have all her nulls, or at least the ones you’re gonna need most sooner (if she has null water and you’re doing the water temple next, i.e), but Elwyen would be more useful if you have Dolorous Dirge and Ballad of Balance.

Well, you should also adapt your team to the place you’re at. Sharla is awesome at the Earth Temple, Elwyen does wonders in the dreamwood, and so on..

Gloria and Elwyen are the most versatile. If you’re unsure about who to use, they’re probably the best pick. Legion is great too, but he requires some work.

Apart from that, it’s preference. I like using Solaar because she’s a doggy dog, woof.

Topic: MARDEK RPG: Chapter 3 / Best Armor

I think the Mythril Plate is generally the best armour for him. It could vary tho, for instance, for Animus the Glyph Shield and Astral Wanderer Garb are more useful. For accesories, it would be the M Charm plus anything circunstances require…

@ogracio

I suppose you mean the Trilobite Staff…? They’re dropped by Trilobite Warriors. In case you want the Null Water skill, it can also be learned from the Sapphire Bangle sold by Gope.

I believe you must go to Aeropolis’ library, talk to the counter lady (must have Mereador), and House in the Woods will be opened in the map. Beat that map and you’ll get he necro tome.

Topic: MARDEK RPG: Chapter 3 / WMG, Speculation and Theory, General MARDEK Talk talk! (Spoilers!)

I’m skipping the spoiler alerts…

I think you can’t consider Rohoph one of the dead GdM members. Moric and Qualna are in fact “dead”, since their souls were sealed. It seems an annunaki is only dead when his soul is gone, which is not the case with Rohoph.

Now this is absurd, but it would be fun in the later chapters if Mardek had a split personality – good Mardek, himself – and evil Mardek, with Rohoph in control. In the middle of the battle Rohoph takes over, Mardek gets confusion and starts attacking himself =p

Topic: MARDEK RPG: Chapter 3 / After the fire guardian- the four heores? where the heck is the skull as well? for legion?

Something you could try (haven’t done it, but I believe it could work) is use Legion’s Rage Chord to berserk the healer and the mage – that would disable them completely.

Speculation on Obvious Spoiler

I’m unsure wheter Lone Deugan (!) will rejoin you or not…since the way the new character is portrayed wouldn’t allow for that…unless he joins and never takes his helm off? There is a Greatsword (Deugan’s weapon) for sale in Aeropolis tho, that could be a hint.

Speculation on Obvious Spoiler

Also, I think most characters will be playable again in the next chapter…there were many plotlines open for this. The most blatantly obvious one is Solaar’s, I think, since she/he/it has yet to get the dark crystal back. Maybe you’ll need Sharla to enter the Air Temple…(the priestess is her mom).

Gloria may be returning too, since she’s involved in Steele’s unfinished plotline…maybe there will be a scene between Steele and Muriance (both are looking for the crystals), and one of them gets to join you?

Finally, the most speculative of speculations, I’m guessing the ULTIMATE FINAL BOSS of the whole series is going to be…Rohoph. Somehow.

The ones you don’t have are:

Vigorous March: Return 2 fairies to the fairy leader.

Ballad of Life (the healing one): Buy it at the secret shop in Goznor (enter the dreamcircle in the magic shop).

Ballad of Balance: also at the secret shop.

Topic: MARDEK RPG: Chapter 3 / Animus advice

I killed him rather easily. First things first, aether resistance is pretty much a must have, etc. Then, my strategy consisted of three key moves: 1) Elwyen using Runic Rhapsody all the time 2) Solaar pumping up Elwyen’s spirit with Spirit Graft, and when it was high enough, pumping up Legion’s spirit (more Gemsplosion damage) 3) Legion using Gemsplosion with a candriathope equipped (fig damage).

For the first rounds, Legion was actually also boosting Elwyen’s spirit with magic drinks (+10 spr, brewed in Gloria’s cauldron), so that I could get her Runic Rhapsody reducing any serious damage REAL quick. As Animus kept using his spirit-lowering skill on me, I had Solaar boosting its own spirit in some rounds, so that it (Solaar’s a “it”) could heal efficiently. Mardek didn’t have much of a role in my strategy, so he was either using elemental slashes or healing someone (usually Legion, for he had the lowest mdef).

I think it’s possible to use magic drinks/spirit graft to raise Elwyen’s spirit to 100, which in theory would nullify ALL magical damage. I had her with ~80 spirit however, and it was just enough. No KO’s.

Also, he never used Delay Buster on me, I think he only uses that when you have someone shielded or hasted.

You could try to disable particle and area effects in the options. It made it considerably less laggy for me.
