Yes, can somebody please put this as a note at the bottom of the Legion's skills page on the wiki? There are other notes there saying that the male centuar needs low hp to use revenge strike (which I got before I read that), but it doesn't say anywhere that you need to lower the happy jonny's hp for it to use 1000 needles. I spent forever trying to get that darn 1000 needles.

EDIT: *sigh* *palm to face* *palm to face* Ignore this. It IS on the wiki, but my eyes just skipped over it.

Have fun killing Animus without the yellow fairy! I was fine with giving the fairys away, but that yellow fairy helped me out so much. The red scarab is not a replacement. Oh, and good job doing this. I'm am not tactical enough to be able to beat the game this way, so two thumbs up for you!

By the way, what happens when you don't get killed by the security demon? I'm guessing that nobody says anything and you just keep going through security. Also, does it drop anything?

Rating Orb Marvelousmoo, Lawful Good Mathemagician – joined 9 years ago Mardek 3: My thoughts, leveling and party members.99.162.XXX.XXX7 years ago
Gloria and Elwyen do seem to be popular characters. Gloria is obviously a better replacement for Emela, and she can cover the natural elements. Elwyen may not seem like it at first, but she is really useful too. Undead don't stand a chance against her, she can heal party members really fast, and her ballad of balance can be one of the most useful skills in this game. It can cause healing spells to spread out more and fully heal the party, it spread out damage among party members keeping them alive longer, and it also spreads out Mardek's huge amounts of damage to all of the enemies. I do not use Legion though, because of several reasons. I already have someone who attacks physically, which is Mardek (all he could do in Chapter 2 was heal, but now he is finally useful for combat), and I already have a magic user, Gloria. Elwyen covers the battle generally by raising stats, healing and providing balance, but I still need a healer. Elwyen can heal, and so can all of the others, but they have different tasks to fulfill, and Elwyen's heal isn't fast enough to save a dire situation. This is the reason I use Solaar. His pleasant sunbeam combined with ballad of balance will fully heal my party, unless they have M shields on. He can resurrect party members who have fallen, which has saved me a few times. His other really useful skill is his spirit graft. That can really raise magical damage for Gloria and Elwyen. I know that Solaar is fairly weak and that he gets killed more often than my other party members, but he helps out a lot, and his backstory interests me the most.

Okay first of all, a new game plus option wouldn't really work in this case because this game is part of a long series. You have played as Mardek from Chapter 1 all the way to Chapter three, and it would seem weird to just start Chapter 3 all over again. I do understand that it would be a lot nicer for stat crunching all of your teammates. I took four people throughout the entire third Chapter (well, not entirely) and now everybody else is level 20 or below. Legion is my highest character besides the four I play with all the time, and I haven't even taken him into one battle yet. I know that there are many boss battles in this game, but you can't use them to level people up because you have to be high leveled to fight them in the first place. Perhaps an option to play through many, many other arenas (just for fun and leveling up of course, no reward) might make this less frustrating. It is just annoying that all of these characters will be significant to the plot in some way, but you can't play as them all, or level them up without getting extremely bored with the game and spending way too much time walking back and forth in the Miasmal Citadel fighting Skelelizards and an occasional Mithril Golem. This game relies heavily on stat crunching, and I wish there was a better way to do it.

No, I understand what you are saying. But in an RPG there has to be a fine line at some point whether he is good or evil. Maybe not though. Perhaps Rohoph will kill his soul and leave Mardek. It is very unlikely that Mardek himself will turn evil, but you can't just beat the game with a spirit inside of you who has gotten corrupted in the slightest. I can think of three general answers that define Rohoph in the end. He is not corrupted, and therefore you win the game, hooray! He is corrupted and you have to fight him to rid the universe of his evil somehow. Or he will realize his corruptness with regret and sorrow for his actions and take his own life to leave Mardek's body. I can't really think of any other way.

Wow, I read the first post of this thread out of curiosity, and I realized that you may be right about Muriance. Something told me that it wasn't Steele, since he can't seem to get the crystal working right. I was trying to figure out what was wrong with Muriance, because he doesn't want the crystals but tries to get them anyways. So it would seem as if the prophecy concerned him. The bright light that will vanquish him could be Solaar or Mardek, but I doubt it. It could be a metaphor, but I would guess that the "bright light" is a different metaphor, or it is actually a bright light. As to the destruction of Belfan, I don't think that it will be caused by the GdM or the Dark Crystal wielder. In fact, I don't believe that the place will be totally destroyed at all, but it is pretty certain that you will have to leave the planet for some reason or other. The space ship that needs fixing underground and the fact that Rohoph wants you to destroy the violet crystal eventually. And I don't think taht the cultists have any significant part in the plot. they are probably just for an extra laugh, but who knows.

Geez you are quick at picking up these things Corelis. Most everything that you are saying makes perfect sense. I didn't even consider if Enki was the captain. He does have a mysterious past and a duty to fulfill, which his wife spoke of. He mentioned somehting about a flying thing is his dreamstone, AND the foreiners in the Reptoid Village said that Mardek reminded them of something. I don't think that you will see Enki next chapter though. The game is certainly moving along at a faster pace tan I had thought; I didn't expect to get three elemental crystals this chapter! But there is still much of Belfan to explore, which you will likely get to before you leave the planet. There is the northern lands, which Mardek's dad is in, but even if you find the piece for the ship, the ship will likely take time to repair, and you might have to find some more parts. There is also the mysterious continent to the West that is rumored of, and there will likely be more places on the already discovered continents.

As to the whole Rohoph being corrupt thing, I don't know what to think. I haven't fought Qualna yet (I'm finishing up all of the sidequests and stuff), but I doubt that Rohoph is evil, and the others are certainly not of good intentions. The high priest at the monastery wasn't corrupted, and Rohoph may not be either. The other GdM members came to Belfan in a hostile way, and they are supposed to help weaker planets. Of course maybe they are all bad and Rohoph is putting on an act...

Macht makes a good point in his first post too. There will probably be an evil power that you will have to fight that is greater than the GdM. They would be the creators of the violet crystal. And as to it being of the Fig element, I am skeptical, but I do understand why it would be. Fig has to do with the mind, and the violet crystal corrupts minds. But it just doesn't seem like the Fig crystal would be that powerful. You would think that the dark crystal would be worse. Also, this is not just any elemental crystal. It is likely that it is huge, as it seems that way in the picture of the GdM. The piece from the Monastery is likely a piece of it, and that is almost the size of the elemental crystals.

ALso I wanted to ask if anyone who hasn't beaten the Arena yet to please take a picture of the person who runs away afterwords. It is very likely that that is the Lone Wolf (Duegan), and I would like to get a better look at it. The dreamstone that he drops hints that it is Duegan.

I found a small typo. Its no big deal, but here it is:

The Guard inside the Aeropolis Shaman's house on the left says "We are more loyal guards to the Shaman that the two men outside..." The 'that' should be 'than'.

Oh and I should probably mention that all of a sudden, I am getting this sticky keys situation. I read before that that was due to the use of Internet Explorer, but I use Firefox. I did not have a problem with this before, but in battle, things are not flowing smoothly anymore. I often have to press 'x' multiple times just to select a command, and it is really annoying when I have to use an item in the middle of my item list. A press and hold down or up to scroll through the items might help a lot.

Okay I found something that is obviously a bug, although it isn't horrible or anything. The bug is located a short ways into lifewood, to the left of the center area with a dream circle in it and four paths leading off. There is a dreamcircle in that area (to the left of the crossroads), but the map tells that it is in a different spot in the area. I went over to where the map thought it was and when hitting 'x', it told me that the tree in front of me was a dreamcirlce. I think the tree was lying, unless it was a dream circle painted to look like a tree how misleading... The dreamcircle still works, but you may want to fix this.

EDIT: Okay I started to walk out of the area after reporting this, and now my white character pixel and other important dots like the blue out of area pixel are out of line. They seem to be moved one pixel up, and apparently I'm walking through trees (on the map. it doesn't look like this on the actual walking around screen).

EDIT AGAIN: I'm having many of these same kinds of bugs all over lifewood. I don't know I you are supposed to be able to go in the Shaman's hut in the dream realm, but I can't. At first I didn't see a problem with this, since some plaaces are blocked off in the dream realm, but then when I looked at the map, there is a blue door pixel on the far right hand side of the map that has the same vertical location as the door of the hut. So are you supposed to be able to go in the door? If so, then this is a bug. (Okay I figured out that there is an exit off to the right and that this is not a bug.)

Hey did you figure out the map bug? That was giving me problems in Chapters 1 and 2 last night, but this morning the map was working fine. I can't get it to not work right, which is a good thing. I think that before the problem was that when you hit the save crystal in a dungeon, the map disappeared, but now it seems fine.

Everything else has been working great for me. I didn't experience save issues like other did.

Im sure you may have already noticed on the comments to your "100%, BUT..." news thing, but I will report it here as well. I accidentally found out that if you are viewing a news article and you click on the Paypal link at the bottom of the page, you create a blank comment. The Paypal link works elsewhere, just not on a page with comments on it.

And to all of you rating those comments, what is the purpose of giving the blank comment a red, it it was a bug in the site that was accidentally found. It is not as if Good Darkness and I were trying to bend the rules or something. Stop abusing the system!

EDIT: Okay people stop doing it. We already know that it works, so you don't have to do it. I had said that this shouldn't cause red ratings, but besides me, who figured it out, and Good Darkness, who tested to see if it wasn't just me, everybody should get reds for this. Oddysen, you didn't do it "Entirely by accident". You saw me do it and tried it yourself.
