No holy word 10 makes me sad. It was one of my favorites in the PS2 Culdcept. I'd assumed it was in Saga and I just hadn't gotten it yet.

I didn't know you could unlock avatar parts and the such on a 1000g game. Good to know.

It was my understanding that if you change the number of rounds then you can no longer select story mode opponents.. thus no avatar parts unlocked.

Setting the match to 10 rounds is great for farming cards, but isn't going to help you get any avatar parts.

yes, that is correct, but there are three parts to setting up the match. the first part you cannot mess with any of the settings or no avatar parts will unlock, then you select whichever level you want to play on. lastly you can change anything you want and it will allow avatar parts to unlock. the round default is set 10-99R i believe. so you can change it to 10R and you will be fine. that is how i got my 2v1 win. i chose the arrow map, then raced around with all spells.

Ah yes, your correct. I forgot that i did it that way to knock off a few quick parts myself when i started grabbing them. I didn't have much success with the 2v1 on 10 round games but i had less cards when i tried it that way.

One thing i will note, I used the 3v1 game to do the 90k total magic game. Once you have controll and several Lv 5 lands you can continually exhaust oponents before they have a chance to build up and you still get the full toll every time they land. I actually completed the last 30-60k in about 30 min compared to a couple hours for the first portion.

magic 8-ball says to equip your deck with a bunch of mass damage cards. i would wait until obviously 10 creatures or more are on the board. then wait til you have a tempest and an insect swarm in your hand together. 20 damage to all creatures, then 20 damage to all creatures that have sustained damage. set all lands to neutral so the opponent doesnt level up and acumulate too much in gold. i did it before i found out about the setting all lands to neutral....my opponent leveled up a bunch of stuff to level 5, and after i wiped out all the creatures on the board, i quickly landed on the empty level 5s and took them over for free. i also exhausted magic about 10 times doing it this way and got my jester's hat

Go into Versus mode, dont mess with the first options, then when the second come around make sure you're playing on the first map against Rilara (it's just easier on that level against her) and put rounds to 10. You'll get it that way.

Story Character win parts?

Do the story character win parts have to be done in Story Mode? I'm pretty sure I've got a combined 50 wins between Story and Versus modes while getting the other parts, but these haven't unlocked. If you have to get 100 in Story Mode, man that is some serious work..

story mode only. if you go back and replay the entire game to get the special cards, more importantly finish the last level of the game for the second time, your story mode win count will be reset. so, dont do this.

Man, that stinks.. I did go back and play the last level again to get the E card.

Ugh, I don't think I have the time or patience to run through Story Mode levels 100 times. It's too bad they made that particular bit so retarded -- I was enjoying getting the other parts, they were pretty creative.

Sweet, apparently the second runthrough of the final level didn't reset anything -- I ran a few Santana Village quickies and picked up the 50-win item pretty soon afterwards. Maybe I'll still go for the achievement after all.. I still have to win a bunch more cards anyway

one of two options:

1) do this during your match that you need to set to 90,000g. that way you can just run around the board and try and land onto opps territories.

2) set up a match that you can work your way around the board and purposely land on opps territories in combination of casting expensive cards. ie] use up all your gold and avoid hitting any towers or castles that would replenish your gold, then land on opps lands.

either way, make sure you set the gold limit high enough to where you can allow yourself to come back. perhaps throw in some mass damage spells so you can wipe out whatever lands that your opp has already built up, after you have exhausted yourself.

You should save the 90,000g goal for a massive avatar parts/achievement grab. Play on a decent size map against Meltia (green cepter). Lock her down with kelpies/reflects at the castle and start dropping all your dragons, ogres & idols (have one of each in your hand) for the achievements. You could possibly drop gears if you let her go of her kelpie prison. There are a lot of non-achievement avatar parts to be grabbed as well (like the dwarven helm & armor). You could try to exhaust yourself in the beginning before you lock her down.

The description for the Mummy Tights is wrong....you most definitely do NOT have to Achieve Victory.

I just lost the match I got it in by about 500 and still got the "Idol Lord" Achievement and the Mummy Tights.

What exactly is the fastest method for defeating Story mode characters? Fastest I've been able to win is around 25 turns average on Santana Village. =\

Update. I finally got my 100 story mode wins. I did most of them against Faustina in past stage Santana Village. I got my time down to 18-22 rounds most of the time and that was roughly 5 laps. My tips for somebody with fewer cards, or not all the best cards (as I didn't have kelpies and stuff), would be to run the following:

Green/Yellow deck;
Include hypno slothes, wolverines, centaurs, harpies. I ran Leshy and a few others for a while but I found those 4 creatures easiest to play and most helpful, 4 of each.

Items were the green and yellow neutralization shields, and some plate mail incase she drew Nuclear Fusion.

As for spells, hustles were fantastic, ran holy words 0 and 1, drain magic is OK but she didn't have a lot of cash on hand most of the time so I dropped those later on. Be sure to run some Prognosis/Enlightenments to make activating hypno slothes and such easier.


If you get what you need at the right time you can kill her in 15-16 rounds.. Doesn't happen often though. Just crank up a few wolverines and she drops quick if you can hold her down with Holy 0s. Rinse and repeat... Very painful grind.
