Mint's Walkthrough

Things to Know: The left side is a quick overview: what you're supposed to look out for, treasures you may find in the area, what monsters to expect, any bosses you have to fight, and any important information you have to know. Plus pictures.

The right side will go into more detail; where exactly to find the treasures, directions (if necessary), tips, and all in all more detailed info.

The walkthrough will be sectioned into chapters based on the save game title. Got that? Good. Let's get going!

Chapter 5: Dragon Battle
Treasures in Town:

Treasures at Raging Mountain:
-Black Magic
-3 Silver Coins
-Legendary Shield

-Fire Blob

-Duke and Belle
-Wylaf -Blood and Smokey (Optional)
Chapter 4: Upstream Adventure

Before you head out to the mountain, drop by Tonio's shop and upgrade your stuff to Platinum at 4500G each.

Head up the path and make your way to the cave entrance. Before you go in, jump down the side (i.e. go towards yourself). You'll fall down to a lower pathway with two enemies. Beat both of them and jump across to the next platform, open the treasure chest and get Black Magic. Break the boulder using your new power. Get back up the upper level and go into the cave.

There will be two paths. Go to the back path first, break the boulder, and pick up 3 Silver Coins. Go to the other pathway, break the boulder and make your way to the next area. Watch out for the rising steam - they'll take some of your HP. ..And yeah, those are black Pollywogs. No, they will not show up as a seperate Monster Coin.

Here, you'll enter a room with several floating platforms with enemies on them and if there aren't any on them, they will be there when you get to it. If you're low on HP, head to the back path with the Bubba and the boulder. To get to the next area, just head straight.

This area is windy! When you see dust clouds on the ground, don't bother jumping to another platform - the wind will just push you backwards and you'll die.. a lot! If you get low on HP, just keep hacking at the Pollywog's and Fire Blob's that show up by going up and down the slope. Hide behind the boulder's when the wind picks up or to keep from being pushed. If you're having trouble getting past Bubba, use your magic to kill it before jumping.

Boss Fight: Duke & Belle
Now that you've made it, you get to face Duke & Belle! Lucky you! ;D The best way to go is to beat up Duke first and try not to get snatched by Belle and the Hexagon (it'll come for you, stretch out it's arms and clamp). If the Hexagon gets you, it'll throw you up and you'll get some damage. To beat the Heaxagon, you have to coax Belle near you and the path. Then use Icicle like before. If you need HP and MP, go near the edge of the walkway and a Pollywog will appear. Once you beat the Hexagon, Belle will jump off and fight you in person. She does the same 'ol tricks. Once you defeat her, the three will high-tail it out of there!

Recover your HP by going to the end of the path. Head up, beat the Fire Blobs easily by using one of your long range magic attack, and jump on the tall columns to get your hands on the Legendary Shield. Like the other one, make sure you don't sell this baby yet. Continue up the mountain. After the 3 black Pollywog's, you'll meet Wylaf so bring up your HP if you need to.

Boss Fight: Wylaf
Wylaf will test you. Fight him until he says "Enough". If you hit him after he tells you to stop, it's game over so be careful. To beat him, watch out for his charges, his fire breath, the pillars of fire, and don't get sucked into the whirlwinds. Hit him with your magic when he's on the ground. You have to reduce his HP only halfway for the fight to end.

After you get the Phantomite, you'll see a scene with Duke, Belle, and Rue. You'll now show up in town and the two hoodlums will stop you and deliver a message: they're asking for a dual! Wait until you head to Klaus and give him the Phantomite. Make sure you pick up the Life Coins:
1. Bronze Coin - On the way to the docks, under the church.
2. Silver Coin - right side of Tonio's shop. Go talk to Klaus. It looks like you need to power-up Prima, so a visit to Fancy Mel is needed. Chapter 6: Together with Prima
