    Can someone tell me how I can cast spells embedded into weapons? (eg fire staff, ice staff)

    Attacking doesn't cast the spells and I don't seem to be able to select them anywhere, I know you should be able to cast them for free

    thanks

    If you got the item equipped you go to the items page during battle. Go to the very top of the page and hit up one more time til you see whats in your two hands. Select item then select enemy.

    Took me ages to realise that. You don't have to have them equipped by the way, you can just use them as an item.

    Now I'm trying to work out what the deal is with the scholar books. Do they deal the lightening/ice/fire damage when you do a physical attack with them? Can't seem to use them as an item.

    @mortys your thief has to be the character you have selected/on the screen at the time: open the menu, hit formation, choose your thief and set them to the top of the character list. Now when you try and open the locked door you will get a message saying using your thief abilities....
    If not you can use one of the keys you get given by the dwarf or buy from the village on the south east of the outer ring of the floating continent.

    Ok so lets say your black mage has a staff of ice on one hand and a staff of fire in the other.

    When you're in battle and its his turn to make a command, what you do is go to the item menu

    after going to the item menu, even though its not showing on the top of the screen, hit up. A new window will open showing what you have equipped in your left and right hands. Select the item staff of ice for Ice spell or staff of fire for the Fire spell. Then choose an enemy you want to use it on. If you ever played FF3 (FF6 jap) on the Snes, it is done the same way.

    What class or level do I have to be at to use stuff like ice/fire/light/medusa arrows? I can use holy arrows and normal arrows, but no-one seems to be able to equip the others.

    The ranger can use all arrows. Atleast he should when I tried him later on, since I was curious on the damage with those new arrows you mentioned at that time.
    But he might require the last bow.

    Ah, OK - Ta.

    I'm up against Hein at the moment, and the whole idea of using study to find out his weak point seems completely fucking stupid - He always uses barrier shirt after you've chosen your attack but before the attack is carried out, so it doesn't matter if you know his weakness is fire and use a fire attack, because by the time the attack hits he'll have a different weakness.

    EDIT: Killed the little twat anyway [​IMG]

    I say use all three -a spells every turn. Or use the staffs if you picked them up. I guess the staff item way would be easier since you probably dont have enough uses on three characters with Lv3 magic [​IMG]

    I found that hammering him with all the magic a waste of time since it's a waste of MP (or items)

    What you can do with Hein is to hit him with all -ra elements at the start of the battle (around turn 1 and 2), take note of the damage. When he starts barrier shift. Take your chance with an element and just analyze the damage afterwards.

    If you use Thundara:
    Damage is higher than normal - he has Ice resistance
    Damage is slightly lower than normal - he has Fire resistance
    Damage is really low compared to normal - he has Thunder resistance.

    Just keep track of which is weak to what. (Fire is weak to Ice; Ice is weak to thunder; Thunder is weak to Fire)

    If you can effectively predict what type he's gonna change to after, add that with knowing everyone's Agility and what turn order they have, you can kill Hein in 5 turns or so.

    Just a reminder that he only starts using Barrier Shift when his life is about halfways gone.

    I might be a little off with the which is weak to what, but you should get the point of what i'm trying to say here. If you still don't, go play pokemon and learn about weaknesses and resistance. [​IMG]

    O yah.. Make your scholars use the items Antractic Wind, Bomb Fragment and Zeus Wrath. They're basically free use of -ra magics. And it owns Hein bad. (looking at 2500 damage if a scholar uses the item on Hein)
