Getting Masamune I:
The search for Masamune I starts when you finished the village of magic,
you know that cave where a big monster was(Hecran), in 1000 AD. After you
finished that, it's time to start searching. Return to the Millenial Fair
in Leene Square(1000 AD) then head for Lucca's invention(upper right
corner) and warp back to end of time. From there, step into the lightbeam
that transform you to AD 600(upper left corner). You'll notice a few
changes since you were here last time, there'll be different enemies, etc.
Exit the canyon and head for the Village of Truce.Go to Truce Inn and talk
to the people. You hear something about a wild guy called magus :) that
causes trouble. Take the Bronzemail(an armor, not so strong) from the
treasure chest and then head to the castle. Talk to the king and you find
out he is injured. He'll send you to Zenan Bridge, where magus's troops
are. NOTICE!!! But there is no point in going to Zenan Bridge without food
supplies because the king's troops are starving and they need food to keep
on fighting. Go downstairs and to the royal kitchen. Talk to the chief and
then head out of there. You'll get a Jerky that is food for the soldiers.
Then head to the Zenan Bridge.
Here, talk to the commander and he'll ask you if you want to join them. Say
yes and you'll get a gold helmet(quite good helmet). After that, go left
and beat Ozzie and his goons. At the end you'll fight a boss, Zombor. He is
divided in two different parts, the upper body and his legs. Use Ice magic
on the head and fire/lighting to destroy the legs. When you won, you saved
the kingdom...for now. Ozzie and his goons will flee. But there is still
more to do if you want the masamune...
After you defeated Zombor(boss at the zenan bridge) head on down/right on
the map and keep exploring. Head to the Porre Village to hear some gossip
about the powerful sword(whoa, finally something about that d_mn sword!).
After that, go to the cursed woods(lies west in the forest on the map).
Investigate around here and find a hidden entrance in the bushes. Go down
and you find an old friend.....FROG!!! Frog is discouraged and a little
depressed when you find him. He keeps telling you that he is no hero, and
he failed to protect the princess. Don't bother, he's just not in the mood,
ok? Forget him for the moment and head to Denadoro Mountains(the big
mountain on the map). But before you do that, you might want to stock up
with powerup-items like tonic, ether, mid tonic etc. Go buy it in a shop
and then return to the mountains. Here, go on and you'll soon find a little
boy that is chased by a monster. He runs by and start talking. Climb the
whole moutain(really huge mountain), you have to fight many enemies before
you reach the top. Don't forget all the treasures around here! When you're
finally on the top, recover your hp and mp to max and then save at the
nearby spot. Then enter the cave. Talk to the twins. They'll start
fighting. You defeat them easiest by concentrating on one first. When you
beat them, they'll transform into a huge dude which is a little harder to
defeat. Use magic and the Crono's slash technique to stop the boss's
special attack(you know that one when he starts briefing and powering up
for a mighty attack). When you defeat him, they'll transform back into two
harmless boys again and they'll give you the masamune.
Ah, finally you got the precious masamune sword! Sorry to tell you this,
but..yes you do have it, but it's broken and can't be wielded.
Go back to Tata's house in Porre Village and Tata will give you the
medallion(Hero's medal). When you got this, go back to frog in cursed
woods. He'll be surprised but he's still discouraged. Though he will give
you the Masamune's hilt.
Go back to Truce Canyon and go back to end of time. Talk to the old wise
man there and then speak with spekkio. Hopefully he'll initiate a new spell
to ya. After that, head to 1000 AD. From there, go to Melchior's hut.
Melchior explains he needs a rare metal to fix the sword, the dream stone
that can only be found in 65.000.000 BC. Oh no, more to do before I get
Getting the Dream Stone:
Go to 65.000.000 BC. and you'll meet a new friend, Ayla. She knows
something about that rock and follow her to the village, where you'll be
invited on a party. You actually win the dream stone from Ayla in an eating
contest. But when you wake up next morning, the gate key is gone! Without
it you can't go back to end of time!
You find out that the reptites(evil animals!) took it and you need to trace
them. Follow the footsteps and you encounter the thieves, sooner or later.
Go to Forest Maze(south on map) but before you do this, you maybe want to
stock up with powerful weapons/armors/items. If you want to do that, go to
the north place "Hunting Range" where you can defeat easy enemies and gain
valuable goods you can trade in the village for equipment. When you are
ready, go back to forest maze.
Follow the footsteps and fight your way through(don't forget the treasures)
You might want to have Ayla in your party(you must) but I mean you want to
equip her with Berserk because she'll be really strong then and defeat most
enemies easily. Some enemies(like megasaur) you need to shock with a
lighning blast first, then they'll be easier to vanquish. After you are out
from the forest maze, you find a cave. Save and then enter it.
Inside the reptite lair, it will be neccessary to dive into a hole and
explore underground to find a boss and then retrieve the gate key. So how
do these holes appear? Well, you see that blue dudes, walking around with a
long nose? They will start digging holes in the ground if you just leave
them alone. Try to stay away and wait for them to begin. After they are
finished, dive into the hole. You end up somewhere, depending where the
hole was located. Sometimes you find a treasure chest, sometimes nothing. A
good tip is that you wait until they are completely finished and you choose
a hole far away from the others. Don't dive into holes that lie nearby
where you've been before, the risk is that you just end up in the same
At the end of the cave, you find the boss(you don't need to dive into the
holes to get there, I think). The boss will be Azala(small green reptite)
and Nizbel. Use Ayla's Rollo Kick and Crono's Cyclone. Use the lightning
spell Crono has to shock Nizbel so he looses more energy. Keep on fighting,
you'll probably win. After you defeated Nizbel, you get the time key. You
can go home!
Fixing the broken Masamune:
Go back to end of time, save and talk to Spekkio. You'll learn some new
magical spells. Then go to AD 1000 and talk to Melchior. Ah, finally the
masamune will be ready!! Since you have the Dreamstone and the other parts
of the sword, Melchior can fix it. Now, of course go back to Frog in 600
AD. As Frog spots the sword, he has to think over the situation. You'll
stay there for a night and you'll see an awesome cinema scene!!!
After that, he'll join you. Now you might want to go back to end of time
and give him some spells. So, now you got the precious sword masamune!! You
want to test how good it really is? Then go back to AD600 and to the magic
cave in the east. You'll see a cinema scene where Frog shatters the
Powering up the Masamune:
You want to powerup the masamune? Ok, but that can only be done later, from
where you can choose among the different chapters. I'm talking about the
Hero's grave, where Cyrus(awesome guy) is buried. You still don't know what
I'm talking about? Ok, after you fought Dalton Plus at the Blackbird, the
whole Magic Kingdom will break down. Now you can choose among some things
in the game, you don't have to take them in a special order. To do this you
need to change out Frog from your party so you don't have him and then talk
to him at the end of time(where the characters are located, you can't
travel more than 3 at the same time at the end of time, remember?). He'll
tell you about the Hero's Grave. The legend lives on; When Frog was a young
swordsman his real name was Glenn. Frog/Glenn had a master named Cyrus.
Cyrus and Frog were near friends and they fought together to protect the
kingdom. But one day, the kingdom was threated by Magus(evil wizard) and
Cyrus and Glenn had to protect the king. Glenn survived. He was turned into
a Frog by Magus and knocked out to unconcsiousness.
Now, 15 years later, Frog decides to go back to his old friend Cyrus's
Unknown of what waits, you and your party walks into the ruins of what was
a splendid church before. In here, you don't know that there will be a
mighty sword and a lot of enemies. But before you can walk into the ruins,
you need to get it repaired because it's full of trashed matrial, deep
holes that are like natural pits, etc. You might need to change time from
600 to AD 1000/and vice versa to get this working: first you must go to
Choras Cafe, there you'll find a carpenter but he has no tools. Then go to
Choras Inn and talk to the guy there. He'll lend you his tools, if you go
to his house. When you have the tools, go back to the guy at the bar. He'll
take the tools and go back to work. Head to his residence and the workers
there will team up and repair the ruins(a bit). After a while, go to the
ruins. You'll see that the carpenters repaired a bit but there is still
more to do. But thanks to all ghosts and creeps in there, they can't keep
on working. You need to slay a few and then go back to the house. Talk to
the carpenters and have them working again. You might need to pay 2000 G.
You might need to defeat more enemies and pay more money to the carpenters.
Don't worry, it will all be worth it, trust me! After everything is finally
finished, go back into the ruins for real this time. Be sure to have Frog
in your party.
In here(Northern Ruins), you'll fight many dangerous enemies so I suggest
you powered up your level until you feel safe enough to be in here.
Investigate the ruins and you'll find some strange boxes. The pendant will
react. Now a message will say something like "Do you want to take out the
- Choose: "No"
This is a very important piece. If you pick it out, you will be sorry.
Inside you'll only find a quite good weapon. But if you say no instead and
"wait a few hundred years" by travelling back to AD 1000 by end of time and
you go backt to the same place, you'll find out that in the same treasure
chest you didn't open the contents will have been powered up and the new
weapon is much better. Now you can take that weapon and also the other one
back in AD 600. So why can't you take it in the past then(600 AD)? Because
then it will be gone in AD 1000. See? So go to AD 600, investigate the
ruins, say "NO" to all boxes and then travel abck to AD 1000, take out the
contents and after that, go back to AD 600 and take the contents. Thanks to
this, you'll get better weapons plus the ones you were out for before.
You'll also find Marle's ultimate weapon, Valkerye, here and the strongest armor you
can have(except Prism Dress), Moon Armor.
To powerup the masamune so you get the Masamune II you need to have Frog in
your party and go to the grave in there. Then Cyrus spirit will set free
and talk to Frog. After a nice cinema sequence, the masamune will be
powered up and will be the Masamune II.
Magus's Doom Sickle:
Magus ultimate weapon is actually hidden somewhere, and it's not easy to
find without some help. Meanwhile you're
looking for the Doom Sickle you'll find a lot of other weapons/armors here.
You can take them but we're in for the Doom Sickle.
As usual you need to have defeated Dalton Plus at the blackbird so that you have the Epoch.
Talk to Gaspar at the end of time and he'll show you a new place in 600.
Go to AD 600 and head for Ozzie's fort. I suggest you have Magus in your
party because the storyline will get a little better(you know Magus was a
Ozzie's homie before, but now he turned to the right side, so Magus and
Ozzie will have a little chat which is better than nothing). Also you're
about to find his weapon so I think it's fair to hook him up in your party.
As you enter the castle, you soon find Ozzie and his goons Slash and Flea.
First you got to fight them one on one, but after you defeated Slash and
Flea once, you have to fight them all together! They are a bit stronger now
and can use more dangerous attacks. I suggest you have Ayla in your party,
then you can steal the valuable hat "Ozzie Pants" from Ozzie.(You can also
charm the weapon "Slasher 2" from Slash but it's not that good as the
rainbow-sword). When you beat them, keep going into the castle. Pretty soon
you'll find Ozzie standing there, winding a chain that leads to traps. As
you step under the axes they'll hit you several times and you'll lose all
your energy but 1 hp. So try to keep out of it, ok? Run quickly under it to
the other side. Keep running through the castle. You also find Ozzie in a
room where a treasure is, with an axe above. Don't take the treasure chest,
it's just a trap that Ozzie laid because the guillotine cuts your hp down
to 1. Instead keep running on and Ozzie will flee. In this room you'll find
the Doom Sickle. Look at the end of the room where the wall is. Search the
wall down and you'll find a passage way to the secret room where a lot of
You find the Doom Sickle
, Gloom Cape, Gloom Helm.
You get Marle's ultimate weapon at the same place where you get Frog's ultimate weapon, at
the Northern Ruins. If you want to know how to get it, check Frog's
ultimate weapon section
above and read about powering up the magic boxes.
Robo's Terra & Crisis:
To get Robo's ultimate weapons, you must play a bit into the game first.
The first time you can get it when you can choose among the scenarios in
the game. But I suggest you take this section last because the enemies are
quite dangerous and then it could be good that you've powered up your
levels and stuff before you do this.
To ger Robo's weapons, talk to him in end of time. He'll tell you about his
birthplace "Geno Dome". Travel to AD 2300. Then here search for an island
with your ship and enter the dome. Remember, Robo must be in the party.
The Geno Dome is huge. It's a sort of maze with amazingly many enemies, hard
battles, mini bosses, treasure chests, etc. Before you go here, be sure to
have goods like mid tonic, mid ethers, full tonic, good equipment and maybe
most important; time. This place is so big it will take quite long to
finish it so if you're in a hurry, don't play this section. Oh well.
Investigate the Dome with the strongest characters you have, plus Robo. Let
Robo fix the computer in the beginning and enter the dome. You can use the
chute in the corner here whenever you want to return to the dome's
entrance. Now, keep going in here, searching everything. At one moment,
Robo will fight his girlfriend(?) that have been reprogrammed by the evil
motherbrain. When Robo finally win this sad fight :( Atropos XR(the robot)
gives Robo a nice ribbon and disappears. Then go on. When you come to the
Mother Brain, defeat her quickly because the computer is loading and
powering up all the time, so it just gets stronger and stronger. Use
Luminaire etc. When you finished the boss, you get the two weapons.
Remember, the dome is big so there's no need to be in a hurry.
The Terra Arm
is always strong and the best overall weaponf for Robo. But
when your hp are lower than 10(Robo's) the Crisis Arm
will powerup and get
very mighty! Check it out sometime!
To Find the Moon Armor you need to go to the northern ruins (hero's grave,
where Cyrus is buried). From here you need to find the magical boxes, say
"no" when it's asking you about the contents and then travel back to AD 1000
to open the treasure chests. You find that Nova Armor have been powered up
to Moon armor. For more info, check Frog's
Masamune II section
. Equip Frog with the Moon Armor.
The Nova Armor is a quite good armor, the best one you can get many
of - there's only one moon armor in the whole game. To get the Nova Armor
you need to go to the Black Omen and you need to charm the big enemy "Goon", using Ayla's
special tech. If you're lucky you got a Nova Armor. If not, try again.
Equip Robo with the Nova Armor.
The Gloom Cape is just about as good as the Moon Armor. The Gloom Cape is
better than the Nova armor, but just a little. You find the gloom cape in
Ozzie's castle (AD 600) in a hidden room - You find Ozzie in a room where a
fake treasure is, with an axe above. Don't take the treasure chest, it's
just a trap that Ozzie laid because the guillotine will cut your energy.
Instead keep running on and Ozzie will flee. In this room you'll find the
Doom Sickle. Look at the end of the room where the wall is. Search the wall
down and you'll find a way to the secret room where a lot of treasures are.
You find the Doom Sickle, Gloom Cape, Gloom Helm. Equip Magus with the
Lucca has two armors to choose from: the Taban Suit or the nova
armor. The Nova armor has slightly higher defense, but the Taban
Suit (that was made by her own father) increases the speed with 3+ "Fire
guard up". Take your Pick. To get the Taban Suit you need to go to
Lucca's house and talk to her father after sometime into the game. He'll give you the Taban Suit.
You can get the prism dress in two ways: either you steal it from the boss
Zeal inside black omen, or you choose to create it by the rainbow-shells
power instead of the three helmets.
Take your pick. If you choose the prism
dress instead of the helmets, you already got it. If not, go to the black
omen and head for the boss. Have Ayla in your party and charm his body. You'll
get the prism dress. Equip Marle with the Prism Dress.
You find the Vigil hat in the black omen, or you
can buy it in a church in AD 1000 in Fiona's Shrine (if you replanted the
dead forest). And you can also find it in a treasure chest in Geno
dome, which is more trouble than buying it.
The prism helmet you can get in two ways: Choose the three helmets
when creating them from the
rainbow shell, or you can steal the prism helmet from the boss Zeal at the black omen.
Go to Ozzie's castle, have Ayla in your party, and fight the boss when they are
three and steal the Ozzie pants from Ozzie. The Ozzie pants have great defense but it'll start
you crazy in the beginning of the battle. But don't worry, after you're hit
you'll be normal with a great helm on ya!
Lucca has the slowest turn rate, so the haste
helmet would be best for her, although she can equip the prism helm too.
The haste helmet is good
because it's pretty strong plus it will increase the speed rate by 50% in
battle. It's a little weaker than the prism helm, but equip which
one you want. You find the haste helmet in a treasure chest in Black omen.
Magus might want his own helmet, the one that was designed for him. It's also a
good helmet, about as good as the vigil hat, prism helm, and the ozzie
pants. You find the cool helm inside Ozzie's castle, hidden in a secret
room. You find Ozzie in a room where a fake treasure is, with an guillotine
is above. Don't take the treasure chest, it's just a trap that Ozzie laid
because the guillotine will cut your energy. Instead run on and Ozzie will
flee. In this room you'll find the gloom helm. Look at the end of the room
where the wall is. Search the wall down and you'll find a way to the secret
room where a lot of treasures are.
You find the Gloom Helm. Equip Magus with it.
