This dungeon is smaller than Tower of Owen no worries!

When you arrive here, go south along the path, then go east to another, larger area. Open the chest to the north to find a Gold Needle , then continue to the next area. Go through the northeastern corner of the area and along the path to the next area.

These powerful items will come in handy later so save them!

There, go south and west to find a chest with Zeus’s Wrath within. Go south and open another chest there to find more of Zeus’s Wrath . Guess Zeus was an angry fellow.

Not the best loot ever but it'll do?

Go northwest, west, and you’ll notice a northbound path. First, go south to find another Gold Needle .

Another Gold Needle?! Sigh.

Now you can go along the northbound path and grab another Gold Needle , then travel northeast and along the path to the next area.

Money!!!

Follow the linear path here, and be sure to grab the two 3,000 Gil chests on the way. In the larger room, heal up and approach the enemy, our next boss.

Boss: Gutsco

Max HP 3,500

Gil Earned 3,500

Well look at this handsome boss.

This boss will end up doing two moves each turn. He has a basic physical that is little more powerful than the other enemies down here, dealing maybe 100 damage. He has a water attack as well, and can heal himself a little or cast Mini. Hope you brought some Mallets or Mini. There’s not much strategy to this fight, given the lack of weaknesses. If you get Mini’d, use Mini or a Mallet on the affected character. The use of "-ra" magic is pretty good here but keep watch on your MP. No gimmick that you can pull, so just go all-out, healing when needed.

Is it just me or does this smell fishy?

After the battle, you’ll get the Horn of Ice . Backtrack to the Dwarven Hollows or Teleport.
