Beat Skullrus Rex Easily
The first part of Doom Castle is guarded by another version
of Flamerous Rex called Skullrus Rex. Most people would
sigh and use all the magic in their inventory. Instead,
just equip the hero with the Dragon Claw and scratch him once
and he goes down. His ninja flunkies shouldn't be too much
trouble after that.
The final boss is the Dark King, which is very hard. But an
easy way to beat him is to use Cure on him. He should be dead
in no time.
Double Level Up
When you fight in a battle field, fight the first nine battles and leave one. Go somewhere besides a battle field (for instance, the Bone Dungeon) and get to where your exp. points are very, very low. About 1-100. Go to a battle field where you don't win anything and defeat the last battle. You'll get two level ups instead of one.
Using the Cure spell 4-5 times to heal yourself and quaffing tons of cure potions can be very annoying. To get a full heal, just use the Life spell. This works IN and OUT of battle, so when you find a boss that has a special attack that can mutilate your party in a few hits, use a Life spell to pump hp's back up. :)
Get Phobe With 680 Points
When Phobe joins press A 3 times to get her to join as a 680 hp character. She will be a powerful ally for a long time if you take care of her.
Get the Dragon Claw Sooner
Normally you're not expected to have the amount of money Tristan wants for the dragon claw when he gets it and offers to sell it. If you want to spend time trying to get $9000, though, he'll give it to you. Unfortunately this can take about as long as it would for you to normally get the dragon claw, depending how frivolous you are in spending your money.
At the beginning of the game, at the first forest, there is a treasure box carrying potions. Take the potions and leave the forest. Now go back to the forest and the treasure box will be full of potions again! Repeat this process until you have as many potions as you want.
NOTE: You can do this in any town, forest, dungeon,
etc. that has a treasure box with any kind of healing item in
Using Battlefields Wisely
In the game, go to a battlefield and fight a couple times. Then leave for something else. When you get to a part of the game where you need more power, go back to the battlefields and clear it out. Then, when you come back you won't have to go through everything all over again!
