Welcome back, dear readers! Last time on Save File plays Legend of Legaia, we royally screwed up Vidna, and realized how much Octam’s mayor sucks. On the other hand, at least he gave us our next objective: To revive the Genesis Tree on Mt. Letona, located to the East of Ratayu, all places we haven’t been yet. So let’s hop to it!
Music: World Map
We’ve been to Octam and the Shadow Gate. This sign is actually pretty useful, since the Sebucus Islands kind of suck to navigate.
Meta: Wait a moment.
Terra: I sense something. Noa, can you? Do you sense it?
Ozma: It’s a Genesis Tree! There’s a Genesis Tree nearby!
Meta: But wait… The Genesis Tree’s energy level is fluctuating wildly… What does this mean?
Terra: The Genesis Tree is to the east! Let’s pass through the town and head east!
This game is kind of annoying with it’s hard to navigate places.
Oh, jeez. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a Viguro. In fact, last time we fought one, it was a boss. This is a Lvl2 Viguro, and it’s just a regular enemy. It’s pretty beefy, but nothing to get too worried about, at least.
Sometimes I have trouble telling East from West. Oh well, both of the checkpoints are locked at the moment anyway.
Nice! (I guess).
I just included this picture to show that random battles are still nothing to sneeze at. If you’re not careful, regular enemies can still destroy you without too much effort.
I SAID BOTH CHECKPOINTS ARE LOCKED, PAST ME. WHY DON’T YOU LISTEN TO ME?
So we have to head into the palace at the head of town.
It’s pretty extravagant, to be honest.
: Saryu? You’re possessed by a Seru… How can you speak to us?
Saryu: I cannot understand difficult words… I give you the key to Letona. The Letona Key will open the gate. You can reach Mt. Letona’s Genesis Tree there. The Mist can be driven from Ratayu. Then I can be with my bride. I am pleased. I give you this West Ratayu Key, too.
: All right! I didn’t understand everything, but I got the part about the Genesis Tree!
: I think he’ll give us a key to reach the Mist Generator, if we revive the Genesis Tree. It sounds good, but something troubles me…
: But Saryu said something about brides! Gala, let’s help him!
: Vahn, I will let you decide what to do.
Seriously, they don’t even give you a dialogue option there. I really feel like they should have.
The Ivory Book is pretty sweet. It’s an accessory that can help you absorb Seru if you have it equipped. Unfortunately, like I said a few updates ago, Seru aren’t as awesome as they used to be, unless they’re healing Seru, and there’s only one of those left to get in the game.
TO MT. LETONA!
Ozma: The Genesis Tree must be at the summit!
: With a Genesis Tree, we can make our Ra-Seru stronger, too! Hurry, Vahn!
Terra: But what do those strange energy fluctuations mean? Could it be something evil?
: Vahn! Gala! Let’s hurry and go see the new Genesis Tree!
I’m going to montage our way up to Mt. Letona. If you feel so inclined, you can listen to the montage music here. NOT WORKSAFE, by the way. I don’t know why you’d be reading this at work anyway, but if you are, thanks!
Welp, that went about as well as I think we all expected.
I GUESS OUR WORK HERE IS DONE.
Well, isn’t this a pleasant surprise?
Music: Songi’s Theme
Songi: So you’re not just a musclebound moron, are you? That’s right! It was me!
Songi: In the very unlikely event you defeat me, I’ll deactivate the force field.
Music: My Name is Songi
All right, it’s time to take on Songi, Round 2. This time we have the whole party fighting, which is good, because Songi is honestly pretty tough. Luckily, our team has been developing into some pretty tough bruisers themselves.
Comparatively, Songi’s physical attacks can hit for anywhere from 300-600 HP. Which is a lot more substantial to our party, meaning he can hit for anywhere from 1/4 to 1/2 of our HP totals.
We’re able to beat him down eventually though, gaining some phat loot, a level for Vahn and Noa, and a new Hyper Art for Gala. Not a bad haul!
Songi: I am impressed! Your Seru are strong as well. Not bad!
: Stop talking and deactivate the force field right now!
Songi: Well, a promise is a promise. All right, I’ll deactivate it. Watch and learn!
Songi: Now you are free to wake up the Genesis Tree. Use the Genesis Tree’s power to drive away the Mist and make your Ra-Seru stronger! I eagerly await your next feat of bravery! So don’t get yourselves killed! Farewell!
: That blasted Songi! But he left so peacefully. I can’t figure him out.
Music: Reviving a Genesis Tree
: And the Genesis Tree’s power drove away the Mist down below.
: The Mist must be done now from Ratayu. But the Genesis Tree’s power is limited. Unless we destroy the Mist Generator, the Mist will cover Vidna where the windmills stopped.
: Yeah, that’s right. OK! Let’s destroy the Mist Generator!
: Vahn, let’s climb down the mountain and head for the town below, Ratayu. If we can get the Gate of Ratayu opened, we can reach the Mist Generator.
Sweet! Genesis Tree activated! This is a good stopping point, thanks for reading.
NEXT TIME: SHIT GETS DARK.
