After the scene at the entrance, start making your rounds in the town to collect treasures. Just to the right of the entrance to the city is an urn containing a [ FAIRY CHOCOLATE or BABANA FLAN or CARNATION CAKE ], and on the opposite side near the familiar retreat is another urn; this one has a [ BREEZE CAKE ].

There is also a green chest to be had; stand in front of the peddler (who is beside the Cat's Cradle on the right), then take a couple of steps back, while staying in the grass. Face the east, and you should see the chest on top of the building; use the vantage point to retrieve a [ HOT-BLOODED BADGE ].

Stop inside the Cat's Cradle and open the chest to the left for a [ PATTY CAKE ]. Talk to the purrprietor in here to rest up, making sure that your HP and MP are maxed for the upcoming boss battle, obtaining the page for [ XANADU ] while you're at it.

Back outside, go up a set of stairs to be at the center area of town. Look to the upper right for an urn that has a [ GAME PIE ] inside, then go to the left. Just to the north of the entrance of the western building is a somewhat hidden urn, so plunder the [ 100 G or 150 G or 200 G ] out of it, then open the chest to the south for some [ SNOWDROP BONBONS ].

Stop in at Swift Solutions on the right side of town, and you'll find Horace on the right side once again! Cast 'Spirit Medium', and he'll want to know what character of the Nazca‰n alphabet only appears in one location in your Wizard's Companion. This one's kind of a pain, but luckily, we're here to help, so just answer to him "Old Smoky" for the correct answer. He'll reward you with the [VEIL] spell, which will allow you to travel past monsters unnoticed.

Tip: If you wanted to fight the Tokotokos for EXP, now it will be much easier; casting Veil on yourself will not alert you to their presence, and will allow you to sneak up on them much easier.

Two more treasures await on the north side of town, so climb the next set of stairs, then turn left and check the corner here to find a chest containing a [FRUIT FLAN] . From there, check the northwestern corner for a blue chest with a [PIXIE DEW] inside.

That's it for treasures, so go back to the center area of town, then enter the building to the west. Talk to the elderly lady, Anciana, for a scene. Save your game, then leave the building and proceed to the top of the area for another battle with a Nightmare.

Boss Fight: Khulan's Nightmare

Stats: 5930 HP

Weak against: Light

Resists: Dark


  1. Physical Attack [Single Target, Minor to Medium Damage]

  2. Cruel Rain [All Allies, Medium Damage, Inflicts and leaves behind pools of Poison, Use Defend and All-Out Defense!]

  3. Pitch Black [All Allies, Major Damage and Inflicts Blindness, Use Defend and All-Out Defense!]

Rewards: 2480 EXP, 2850 G, Cherub's Wing

As with the last one, the Nightmare is naturally weak to Light, so you can spam Arrow of Light if you like, but as usual, I recommend a direct assault with several All-Out Attacks with your strongest familiars. With this, you have a good shot of cancelling attacks and knocking loose some gold glims for serious damage.

His Cruel Rain attack is largely an annoyance; it does medium damage to your party, and will also have a good chance of poisoning them. It also leaves behind pools of poison on the ground, so be careful when navigating so you can avoid them. Pitch Black is a bit stronger than Cruel Rain, and instead of poison, it will inflict Blindness on your characters. For each attack, I recommend Defending to minimize the damage and chances of status effects. Regardless of which status effects do hit you, be sure to use Esther's Chant to get your party back to normal as soon as possible.

After the battle, watch the scenes unfold, then take the extra bit of love that Kublai has and give it to Queen Khulan to return her to normal. After a few more scenes, you'll receive [THE SEVENTH TALE] of Wonder for your Wizard's Companion.

When you regain control, head back outside and talk to Khulan to the north to begin the ritual! With it, you now have the new and improved [MORNSTAR] , along with several new spells: [HEALING HAND] , [FORTUNE'S FOOL] , and [UNLEASH] .

Trophy icon
Wonder Wand

Awarded for restoring the legendary wand Mornstar to its former glory.


Unleash is extremely useful; it allows you to summon the Guardians that you have defeated in the past to help you in battle, dealing major damage to all enemies! Sweet!

We're now almost ready to take on Shadar. However, we must first clear the miasma, so to do that, we must make the Clarion. The supplies are in each of the three major kingdoms, so our first stop will be Al Mamoon. Before getting too pumped up to go find them, there are a couple more things to grab here. First, know that with the new and improved Mornstar, you can now open the purple chests that we've been teased with throughout the game! Start by going to the elder's house (to the west, in the center part of town) and use 'Spring Lock' on the one inside to gain a bottle of [NOSTRUM] .

Now that the people of the town are back to normal, they are more willing to help you out. Just outside of the elder's house is a boy to the north; talk to him, and he'll give you quite a few formulas: 004, 012, 048, 049, 055, 062, 066, 075, 092, 102, 117, 119, 120, and 123. After that, head to the entrance of town, where the guard here will have one more formula for you: 126, the Herald's Harp for Esther! You need a Cherub's Wing (just won from the boss), a Powerstone (obtained from the forage point outside of town), and 2 Gustplumes (dropped or stolen from the Prohawks around Perdida.) Once you have these, upgrade her weapon! With new story objectives unlocked comes more Errands and Bounties! And don't forget, you can now unlock Purple Chests, so we'll get those as well!

In Ding Dong Dell, after completing the above errand, enter the city and look beside the familiar retreat to find the merchant couple once again.

Take that chunk and return it to the husband so they're back in love with each other.

Items: Hometown Flower

In Perdida, talk the to girl outside of Swift Solutions looking at the flowers. She had a dream that turns out to be what's going on in Motorville, and she wants to see the flowers from there. Use 'Gateway' to switch worlds, then go to the center of town southeast of Ollie's house.

Talk to the girl here, then examine the flowers and cast 'Rejuvenate' to bring them back to life. Talk to the girl again to receive the [HOMETOWN FLOWER] . With the flower in hand, return to Perdida and give it to the girl to end this errand.

In Yule, the Tomte you're looking for is standing to the left of the Peddler to the northeast. He'll give you what you need, but in the meantime, you to take out five Manglerfishes out on the World Map. Do so, then return to receive the [COLD COMPRESS] .

Formulas: 017, 022, 027, 032, 037, 042

  • Al Mamoon (Babana)
  • Castaway Cove (Glowshrimp)
  • Hamelin (Black Truffle)
  • Yule (Snow Radish)
After you've fed him all four, you'll receive your reward, as well as a lot more formulas!

Errand #074 - More Creatures

Description: Derwin has moved on to Perdida in search of more creature data.

Unlock Requirements: Complete Errand #073.

Goal: Agree to help Derwin with his research.

Stamps: 5

Rewards: Jumbo Moondrops x2, Jumbo Sundrops x2, 4000 G

In Perdida, to your northeast as soon as you enter, is Derwin, and he has a new, excruciatingly painful task for you. He needs a Wispula, a Flash Fry and a Trumpy-Pumper. However, you can't catch these; they need to be metamorphosed from their weaker forms. (In the listing below, the left one is the one he needs, and their evolution steps are to the right:)

  • Wispula
  • Flash Fry
  • Trumpy-Pumper
***Tip:** The Ghost Wisperer can be tamed in Nevermore later on in the game, if you want to wait and save on evolving the Wisp twice. Same goes for the Sharper-Parper in the Miasma Marshes. If you're grinding Tokotokos though, you might as well just get the earlier versions; one fight may be enough to evolve them.*

Catch the monsters listed above, then metamorphose them into their stronger versions to be able to complete this errand. You'll most likely be doing a LOT of grinding of Tokotokos to get this one done quickly.

Bounty #107 - Icy Giant

Description: A mighty monster is causing avalanches on the Winter Isles, and terrifying Yule's residents. Something must be done!

Last Seen: In the Southern Winter Wonderlands (Winter Isles)

Stamps: 8

Rewards: Bubble Bath Gem x1, 2500 G

Enemies: Ice Ogrrr (323)

Spoils: 481 EXP, 615 G

The beast in question is on the frozen lake to the northwest of Yule. Equip and fire-based weapons and water-resisting equipment before going. Once you're going head to head with the Ice Ogrrr, you'll want to control Oliver and spam his fire-based Unleash spell, Volcanic Roar.

If that's too much of a slow pace for you, then use a familiar that has the Blazing Blade equipped and go for a direct assault. Either way, he shouldn't give you too much trouble as long as you stay healed.

Bounty #108 - A Kingdom on the Brink

Description: A particularly vicious monster is heading straight for Ding Dong Dell. It must be stopped!

Last Seen: In the Western Rolling Hills (Summerlands)

Stamps: 8

Rewards: Fiend's Fang, 2500 G

Enemies: Shellfire (330)

Spoils: 453 EXP, 650 G

Your target is in the far northwest of the Rolling Hills, in the area west of the Deep Dark Wood, so check your map, then make your way over to the slow-moving beast.For being a menace to Ding Dong Dell, it's actually pretty lackluster. Just focus on using normal attacks while doing All-Out Attacks for the rest of your party, and if too much damage is being done to you, toss up a Pixie Dew or two.

Bounty #109 - Magmadeddon

Description: Yet again, a monster has got it into its head to try and make Old Smoky erupt. Put a stop to this madness once and for all!

Last Seen: On Top of Old Smoky (Summerlands)

Stamps: 8

Rewards: Heat Ray Gem, 2500 G

Enemies: Magmadonna (303)

Spoils: 467 EXP, 633 G

If you have any fire-resisting equipment and/or water based weapons, equip them before going. As with the last beast trying to get Old Smoky to blow, you'll find the culprit on the volcano itself. However, this time you must go all the way to the summit of the volcano where you fought Moltaan to find her. Fire away with water spells and keep your party healed throughout.

Her Palava attack is more dangerous than it looks; it will hit your whole party for medium to major damage, so be sure Defend and use All-Out Defense when you see it coming, and be sure to use Pixie Dews and other healing items/spells right after it hits.

After you're finished with all of these errands and hunts, it's time to get a start on making that Clarion!
