spend a little time leveling your characters or using the casino trick to get stats if you dont like to fight a lot, or search for golums. I flew through the whole game got to the Ice queen and got smoked, I had to go back and level up a lot and get a bunch of stats, but there is a teleport o London City in the town with the gate to the Ice palace so if you wanna fly through it and get there then spend time looking for shit then you could do that. The only thing I regret not doing in this game is not going to the temple to get Omega.

ive been using the casino trick to level up my characters. What golems should i concentrate on that i will need at the end of the game?

I haven't really looked, but I'm at work now and I can't go anywhere else: How do you combine golems? Is there a physical store/place of some kind to go to or is it in the purple jewel thingamathing?

I've said this a ton of times in other threads and will say it again. It all depends on what you are playing the game for. If you want to just play the game to finish it and that's it use the following

Atsuma (as if you have a choice)

Phoenicia (located in the Londinus Plains North Forest in the Fire Temple right before you enter the stairway to return to Yokohama City)

Aero Dragon (located in the Yamashiro Marsh Forest outside of the village in the Wind Temple)

Alibarad (she is located in a chest on the 11th level of the Holy Beast Shrine)

With this setup you will breeze through the rest of the game.

Just be sure to max out their stats and make sure that Atsuma and Phoenicia have around 5,000 in health. Alibarad only needs about 2,000 in HP and the Dragon is fine with 3,000.

Your toughest battles the remainder of the game are the Earth Devil Golem, and Infinity. And by toughest I mean they won't end in one turn. With Atsuma, and Phoenicia powered up 75% by Alibarad it makes the Ice Queen battles a pointless breeze. Both Atsuma and Phoenicia will hit her with about 4500 HP damage attacks killing her rather quickly. For the Earth Golem you won't have Alibarad because she is not obtainable until after you visit the Vorbios Volcano. But with the Aero Dragon at Max you should be fine. Just be sure to have any Golem with you that heals. I would suggest using Raiger and keeping the Dragon behind him. Use Floresia who you can get from the Casino. Max out her Support which is easier to do if you fight with her on your team as you enter the Wind Temple to get the Aero Dragon. Plus she has the Support + 20% which helps. She can give your entire team back 1358 in HP which means the Earth Devil Golem won't do any damage to you at all. Plus she can power up the Dragon by %50.

Once you get to Infinity again just power up all your characters especially the Dragon which will do 4500 HP in damage while Atsuma and the Phoenicia will be doing 2250 HP in damage and at times they'll do 4500 as well when you attack the opposite aligned Orbs that power Infinity.

Now if you plan to play the game online after completing I would tell you to get all of the Golems you can and the best setup is.

Divine Turtle
Aero Dragon

The Turtle is without a doubt the best Golem in the game between his 699 HP attack that hits almost everyone. His Barrier ability that prevents status problems, and his Protection ability that reduces all damage to half.

With the above set up you can destroy any opposition you face during the game. The battles won't go as quickly as they would with Alibarad's Power Up but you'll be dealing damaged of 2000 Hp to everyone on the opposition while they are doing very little to you because of the Turtle.

Other great golems are
Folly Carol - Holy Beast Shrine Level 8
She has an 800HP move that hits everyone on the board

Executor Holy Beast Shrine Level 11
He as a really nice looking set of moves one does 800 in HP the other 480 in HP but the moves are both direct meaning the damage only affects those in the front, the back row only gets half the damage.

The two of these Golems powered up by Alibarad will deal 2800 in damage to everyone in the front, and 2100 if they are covered. Plus if they happen to be Fire based that shoots up to 4200 & 3500 in HP damage.

Also of note is the...
White Tiger - Earth Temple located inside the Vorbios Volcano Wind Tunnel
He has a devastating 1580Hp move that when powered up by Alibarad increases to 3170 in damage. It however has limited range and requires the person to be on the first square to use.

Before attempting to get those golems should my characters be at a certain level.

You will want to get Phoenicia first. Purchase Ruby Butterfly from the Casino and go get her (Phoenicia)first. Atsuma's Phoenix EX attack won't do any damage nor will any fire based attacks. Luckily her major attack won't hurt you either. Be sure to attack with Blows and Attacks not fire attacks. Also have Yuki if you can with her Sniper Shot. It will take off about 6000 in HP but you don't need her. Then use Atsuma, Yuki, Phoenicia, and Raiger to get the Turtle. Send me a FR and we can chat. But I won't be home until Friday night.

Also around 2,000 in HP will do for the early parts. Wait to do your major glitching/level ups until after you defeat the Earth Devil Golem. After that there will be a Mega Skill Gem at the shop for 4200 TB but each gives you 8,000 in SP. Much better than that 1,200 skill gem.

I got Phoenicia and Aero Dragin last night and wanted to know how far i should level them and where to get their parameters to.

i Just beat the game. I just used every human character and did it quite easily myself. I got to the boss realizing it was too hard. So i took another 5-10 hours doing the side quests and beast shrine. I was level 50 when i was done, atsuma having 5000 life and the rest 2500-3000. So as long as you have this you should be ok. You can just breeze through the game and do most the leveling at the end, because you will get a skill that doubles your SP and EXP points. That is my advise!

For Phoenicia get his health to 4000 and Max out his ranged.
For the Dragon get his health to 2000 and Max out both his ranged and direct.
You don't want the Phoenix to die while fighting the Ice Queen because of their opposite alignment, that's why he needs more health.

No problem... if you've still got the game and want to go a few rounds on, online Golem Battles shoot me a message on XBL.
