Arc The Lad Collection

Strategy Guide


Slime Time mini-game

Insert the "Making Of" disc. At the main menu, press Circle(2), X, Square(2), Triangle, Circle, X, Square, Start. If you entered the code correctly, the words "Arc The Lad Slime Time!" will appear. The mini-game is a one or two player game of checkers, using Slimes from the game.

Infinite Cure-Alls in Arc The Lad

After your first visit to Toyoke forest, keep going back and talking to the Forest Spirit. She will keep giving you a Cure-All each time you talk to her.

Iga's Rock Spell in Arc The Lad

Once the "Shingan Hoo" spell (rock spell) is cast on enemies, the "Taimakoodan" spell (laser spell) is enabled/accessible. The laser will attack all the enemies under the rock spell. Note: The Taimakoodan spell is not usable independently.

Chongara's Monsters and 1100+ HP Damage Attack in Arc The Lad

Chongara's abilities are unique. He summons enemies of all genera at his will. Though his monsters may not seem as useful at first, his two monsters "Raigin" and "Fuugin" can be quite a deadly combination when used accordingly. Though it takes some time to summon both Raigin and Fuugin, once they are out, place them around an enemy, preferably a strong one. But note that they must be in a veritcal formation (for example: Raigin over an enemy, Fuugin underneath the same enemy), in order for the attack to work. Once they are in a vertical formation, a spell will now be accessible, which can inflict more than 1100 HP damage. Death is inevitable.

Chongara's Secret Character in Arc The Lad

Chongara also has a secret character that he can summon at only certain times. To access her, you must fight your way through all 50 dungeon levels at Alalatos, and eventually fight her. If you do manage to defeat her, she will join your party and Chongara will be able to summon her, but only in certain locations. But then, you have to go up though all 50 levels again, in order to get out. If you die, all the hours of work will have gone towards nothing. So make sure you are well prepared before going down there.

Talking in Arc The Lad

Talk to many of the people when available. If you talk to them annoyingly (over and over), they just might give you some nifty items. For example, the announcer at Needle will eventually get sick of you and will give you a book that will make you immune to all poison statues.

Item duplication in Arc The Lad 2

Note: Two memory cards are required for this trick. Go to the Arc The Lad Monsters Arena and save your games on both memory cards. As player one, load one memory card. Have player two load the other. Have player two trade an item from his inventory to player one. Save player one's game on both memory cards. Two of the item are now on both save files. Repeat this as many times as needed.

Note: Two memory cards are required for this trick. Copy the saved game with the item to duplicated to the other memory card. Then, start Arc The Lad Monsters Arena with two players. Go to the trading post, trade the item to the chosen player, then save only with the player that received the item. Reset the game and you will have duplicated the item. This can be done with monsters, used to sell items, and make money or duplicate certain items for quick level ups.
