Legend of Legaia

THE FINALE – Legend of Legaia Ep. 36

This is it, guys. Last time, we defeated Songi and managed to save the Great Genesis Tree. We also got our characters their ultimate magic (not that I’ll end up using it). But now, with the Great Genesis Tree saved, we can get into Rim Elm/Juggernaut. And then we can… uh…

What the heck butt are we supposed to do once we get in there?

Well, I guess I’ll burn that bridge when I get to it.

SO LET’S GET TO IT.

MUSIC: World Map After Juggernaut

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_171113.157
I think I forgot to show it off before, but here’s what Rim Elm looks like now from the outside. Just a pile of organic mass, surrounded by bone spires.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_171124.790 Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_171126.486
Gala: Vahn, are you all right? I understand how you feel. Even if we defeat Juggernaut… your family and fellow villagers may not return to normal.
Noa: Vahn! Vahn… I understand. I understand how you feel, Vahn! So I’ll wait for you. I’ll wait until you feel you’re ready for this. I’ll wait until you’re ready to fight Juggernaut.
Vahn: You guys… thank you. But now, more than anything, I am PISSED. So let’s get in there and finish this once and for all!
Noa: Vahn! You’re all right now? You’re all right, aren’t you?
Gala: Before our own eyes, we’ve seen many towns recover from the ravages of the Mist! We have made many miracles happen! So… so…
Noa: Vahn, you’re not alone! Everything we did together, everything we are going to do… it will never ever, ever, EVER be undone! That’s why…

I actually kind of like how both Noa and Gala’s thoughts trail off here. It’s such a serious situation, and they’re trying very hard to console Vahn, but at the same time… they can both remember what happened to Conkram. The only way to know if Rim Elm can be saved is to try though.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_171218.301 Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_171233.325
Terra: Now! Now’s the time to bring forth the power of the Great Genesis Tree!
Meta: Vahn, are you prepared? There’s no point fighting Juggernaut from the outside! Juggernaut’s weak spot is on the inside!
Terra: Are you ready, everyone? We’ve got to cut an opening and crawl into Juggernaut’s body!
Ozma: We must work together! Let’s go!

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_171300.900 Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_171307.380
Eeeewwwww…

Noa: So, is that it? Are we going to enter Juggernaut’s body through his mouth?
Gala: It sure seems that way! Brace yourselves! It’s gonna be a wild ride!

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_171322.060 Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174337.640
Ew ew ew. So this is the last dungeon: Juggernaut. Everything in here is constantly pulsing and moving and gross and ew.

MUSIC: Bio Castle

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174343.495 Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174348.072
On the other hand, it’s a very straightforward dungeon. There’s really only one path to follow for quite awhile.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174403.264 Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174426.799
The only enemies in here are Level 3 Seru. Nighto, Swordie, Barra… we’ll be seeing almost everyone. The rewards for battles are pretty good, and battles aren’t particularly tough either, though some can be. The biggest problem is that battles take FOREVER. Enemies have so much HP now. I wise up after awhile and throw on the Good Luck Bell to lower the encounter rate though.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174433.983Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174437.264 Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174444.135
We’re also going to find everyone’s best equipment in here. It’s all scattered around, but I’m going to wait to show it off until everyone has their entire ensemble.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174454.664Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174503.735 Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174518.783
But as you can see, everything provides quite a respectable boost, at least +10/+15 compared to what everyone already has equipped.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174655.758 Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174713.790
Battles like these are not an uncommon sight. 3 Level 3 Seru is pretty much the norm.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174724.478 Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174728.574
Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174734.382
This room is particularly unsettling. All the tendrils at the top and bottom of the screen constantly expand and contract and sway.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174743.214
We’ve got Freeds all up in here.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174756.558 Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174758.590
Ew. I don’t even want to know what that is…

Lymph fluid?

OH, MAN, I JUST GROSSED MYSELF OUT SO HARD.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174805.902Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174810.406 Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174815.678
The Crimson Book is a pretty awesome accessory, but we receive it so late that it’s not even really worth it to equip it.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174820.917 Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174848.013 Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174826.646
Those Mushuras look pretty badass.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174854.293 Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174902.334
You can see the little “Enc Down” arrow, showing that I equipped the Good Luck Bell. This next part involves a lot of circling around if I want to get all of the chests, and I most certainly do.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_174915.541
Still managed to run into these guys.

We find this going left at the fork. That means that we of course have to go right as well.

Hunter: Vahn? Is that… is that you? Vahn? Get out! I mean it, Vahn. You must get out of here. This is a hellish place!
Woman: Oh, Vahn! Please help us! Save us from this pain!

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_175142.924
Another Lost Grail, which lets you survive a hit that would otherwise kill you. I wonder if these disappear after one use… I have one in my inventory, but haven’t ever bothered to use it. That would only make sense though. Otherwise that would be kind of broken.

Noa: Maya! Are you all right? Are you in pain?
Maya: Don’t worry. I’ve still… got some fight left in me!
Gala: Just hang in there! We’ll save you! I promise!
Maya: Okay… Oh, I’m sorry… I’m so… tired…
Noa: Maya?
Gala: Come on, let’s go! It’s time to take out Juggernaut for good!
Noa: Hang in there, Maya. We’ll get Juggernaut!

Vahn: I’ve been looking for you, Mei.
Mei: Oh, thank you. I knew you would come, Vahn! But please… don’t look at me. I must look horrible. Don’t look at me! I look awful…
Noa: That’s not true! You look the same, Mei! Just as pretty as ever!
Mei: You’re so sweet, Noa. Thank you so much. And I told myself… that I wouldn’t cry. I told myself… I’d be strong!
Gala: Hang in there, Mei! We’ll finish off Juggernaut! Then we’ll rescue everyone!
Mei: Wait, Vahn. Take this… with you…

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_175301.603
Mei: Promise me, Vahn. Promise that you’ll come back… alive!

Vahn: Destroy Juggernaut!
Val: I see. I’m sure you can do it. Take this with you. Vahn, I’m so proud of you.

In this hallway, there is a semi-hidden item that would certainly behoove you to find it.  Walk against the right wall, and mash X constantly, until you find…

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_175450.019 Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_175455.155
Noa is the REAL Juggernaut here.

Noa: Are you all right, Gala? Please, don’t let go!
Gala: I’m trying, but… my hand… I can’t get a good grip! We’re slipping…

Gala: Just as Songi said, Cort has fused with Juggernaut and is still alive. But how horrifying. How bizarre… He couldn’t be human anymore.
Noa: No! No! Stop! Stop it! Cort, come back! Turn back into a person again! Why did you do it? You’re my brother! You’re supposed to be human! I’m a human! I know about love! I am human! I hate being alone! It’s good to be human! So Cort, be human again!

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_180049.513
Noa: Cort!
Cort: Human? Humans are weak. Humans are dirty. I gave up being human to become a mighty being. I am a being that transcends humans! Even the Seru! A perfect entity! A perfect entity! Perfect entity! Humans are imperfect. I will use all my powers to destroy them!
Noa: No! You’re wrong, Cort!
Cort: Who interferes?!
Noa: It’s me, Noa!
Cort: Noa? Who is Noa? I know no Noa!

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_180115.329
Cort: I NEED NO NOA!

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_180123.056
Noa: Cort…
Cort: I sense the presence of humans! Weak, dirty humans! I do not need humans! I must destroy the humans here!

THIS IS IT. The final battle! Against… Cort? Juggernaut? JuggerCort? I’ll just go with Cort.

As usual, first order of business is Spirit.

Cort hits pretty hard, but not as hard as Songi did, surprisingly. Plus, the party is decked out in the best equipment possible.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_180254.943
He definitely hits harder when you haven’t used Spirit though.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_180258.640 Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_180306.343

Of course, last boss has to have a full party attack.

Final-Crisis
I’m surprised at how short the animation is. I mean, damn, when we fought Cort the first time, I had to split his Evil Seru Magic into 3 .gifs.

And like the older bosses, he charges up before using this, which allows you to basically halve the damage, which helps a ton.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_180318.680
I think Noa takes less damage from Cort.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_180338.135 Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_180359.599 Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_180348.343
We’re pounding out the damage pretty hard though.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_180858.629 Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_180901.221
This is actually a pretty easy fight. Like I said, Songi is much more difficult. I think the equipment makes a big, big difference in this battle.

Noa: No! Terra, don’t leave me alone! Don’t leave me!?
Terra: Noa, your parents were killed by a Seru. Yet, you want to be with me, a Seru? And besides, you’re not alone. You have Vahn and Gala.
Gala: Ozma, we have experienced life and death together. How can you leave me now?
Ozma: Oh Gala, has your dependence on me caused you to forget your own abilities?
Meta: Vahn, your heart is so full of warmth.

Dr. Usha: I have a Soren take me all the way here only to find that the biggest hero, Vahn, is about to leave!
Nene: W-Who… is this person?
Vahn: Dr. Usha, a brilliant scientist.
Dr. Usha: Correct. I am Usha, veritable warehouse of knowledge. Well, never mind that. Vahn, I want you to tell me why you are leaving.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_181208.627
So, I have to admit, I don’t know if it makes a difference or not, but I tried to make it seem as though Vahn and Mei would end up together. But out of all the choices here, only the third one really makes sense to me. Beyond that, I pick it for reasons you’ll see soon anyways.

Dr. Usha: Oh, I see! How forward of me to ask such a question. Yes, well, if those are your intentions, then it’s fine with me. Here’s what I’ll do! I’m going to write a book about the life of our great liberator! I will remain in Rim Elm to gather material for my book until you return, Vahn. Those two there. They must be your family, Vahn? Pardon me for disturbing your saying farewell to Vahn. Tell me everything outside.
Val: What a character you are, Dr. Usha! Ha ha! Very well. I will tell you what you want to know.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_181236.964
Nene: I’m sure you’ll be all right, but take care anyway! Good luck!

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_181247.603

Hey, Zalan’s here!

Zalan: My son, Pepe, and I are traveling the world together on a jewel buying trip!
Pepe: I’m learning the secrets of the jewelry business as we travel. Vahn, if you ever need a wedding ring, I’ll give you a good price!

There are a ton of people around Rim Elm now.

Val: We were talking about how the Ra-Seru’s amazing powers healed my legs, and how everyone in the village feels as if they’ve been reborn. The Ra-Seru have given us a new lease on life. It’s a miracle we’ll never stop talking about.
Dr. Usha: Fascinating. A most fascinating story. Vahn, Val is a wonderful father, and Nene is a wonderful sister. But Vahn, your face says you want to ask me about the world outside the village. My intuition was right, as usual. Well then, I will make it brief. First of all, you do know that no more Seru will be created anymore, yes? Our good friends in Sol are still experimenting, but it’s no use. With Uru Mais destroyed and the Seru-kai gone, no new Seru will ever appear again. What’s more, the Seru already here are gradually losing their power. My calculations show that most of the Seru will die off in the next year or so. We avoided the Seru in the age of Mist, but losing them completely is another matter. The Soren, the flying carts and others who relied on the Seru may return to the Stone Age. But Vahn, I have faith in human potential! The human race will never die out, as long as we have people like you to carry on Tieg’s wishes.

That’s a pretty good epilogue, actually.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_181406.803
Mei: Vahn, you love Noa, and you’re going to tell her that, right? Maybe the four of us could have a double wedding! I’m so happy right now! Tee-hee! Be careful, Vahn. I’ll be waiting for you to return.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_181438.675
Village Elder: After the village was rescued from Juggernaut, and Noa left the village, Noa was carrying a baby, wasn’t she? Noa refused to tell me who the baby was, but that was her brother Cort, wasn’t it?
Vahn: Yes, I think that was Cort.
Village Elder: As I suspected. Cort, too, must have been reborn when we received new life from the Ra-Seru. I know that it was Cort who brought the Mist into the world. And I also know that Cort is Noa’s only blood relative. Noa must have been trying to leave with Cort unnoticed. She must have decided to raise Cort by herself. Noa is quite a young woman. Hmm… Vahn, are you about to leave Rim Elm? Have you said goodbye to everyone?
Vahn: No, but there are WAY too many people to talk to.
Village Elder: Good luck to you. See the distant lands, the rich world for all humans!

Well, I talked to ALMOST everyone, actually. I forgot about Tetsu, and apparently Luctes was there in town. I must have missed him though.

MUSIC: Ending

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_181547.947
And that’s it! We did it, everyone!

We get a shot of Noa in Jeremi with her baby brother.

Gala has returned to his position as Master Teacher at Biron Monastery.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_181618.426
Cara and Grantes are still happy together in Buma.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_181623.282
Saryu apparently snagged himself a regular bride, rather than a Seru bride.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_181630.082
Sol is still a bustling town, as always.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_181635.289
With Dr. Usha visiting Rim Elm, it looks like Mrs. Usha has taken over his experiments. They seem to be going… not so well.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_181638.257
The Flying Seru is still in operation, but who knows for how much longer?

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_181643.834
The Soren are going to have to leave their camp soon, as their Seru Wings will soon start to fail.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_181653.673
And on top of Conkram, a pair of flowers begins to bloom.

Ep. 35.mp4_20150726_181656.457
And we get a final statistics screen! 40 hours of gameplay, not too bad. 10 or so hours of that was probably grinding though. ~750 battles, and everyone topped 4,000 damage. I slacked off on gathering magic near the end of the game, and I missed a bunch of silly side games, but no real side quests.

Well, everyone, that’s it! That was Legend of Legaia. I’m going to make a retrospective, wrap-up post as well, so join me next time for the LAST Legend of Legaia episode by Save File, before I move onto the next Screenshot Let’s Play! Thanks for reading everyone, I really hope you enjoyed it.

Seru-Kai – Legend of Legaia Ep. 35

Welcome back to the penultimate episode of Save File Plays Legend of Legaia. Last time, it seemed like it was over, then Songi appeared and turn Rim Elm into a terrifying abomination of Sim-Seru/Town. Now, we have to travel to the Seru-kai to try and stop Songi’s plan (which I’m still a bit unclear on). To get to Seru-Kai, we need to go back to Uru Mais.

Thank goodness for the Doors of Wind.

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_163524.532 Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_163535.149
MUSIC: Uru Mais

Noa: Uru Mais is deserted! There’s no one here!
Gala: Ozma! Ra-Seru! Tell us! Is this where we can find the door to the Seru-kai you told us about?
Ozma: Gala, strain your ears… I mean, your mind. Listen! You can hear the Words.
Terra: Uru Mais has been destroyed, but the Words remain!
Meta: You heard them, correct? They say that Tieg will live forever.

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_163601.100
Tieg is Words. Humans! Rely not on your imperfect eyes!

Noa: It’s Tieg! Tieg is alive, everyone!
Gala: Let’s go to the ruins! Tieg will open the door for us!

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_163618.148
Meta: Once we pass through the door, there is no turning back. Are you ready? Very well! Then we must focus our thoughts!
Noa: Tieg! It’s me, Noa! Open the door for us!
Gala: Tieg! Open the door! To restore order to the Seru-kai! Show us the way, so that we may retake the human world from the Mist’s henchmen!
Meta: Vahn! Call to Tieg! Now! Concentrate! Harder! Turn your bravery into Words!

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_163641.644
Tieg: The Words are what show the way. Proceed, humans!

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_163649.652Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_163651.324 Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_163652.748
Vahn, just flies in all whatever, Noa flaps her arms and looks super happy, and Gala goes for a badass/superhero pose.

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_163658.803
Ozma: Gala, I need to tell you something.
Meta: Vahn, Noa, and Gala. We want to thank you… from the bottom of our hearts! I am so fortunate to have joined up with young people like you!
Ozma: When Tieg divided his body into human and Seru, the Seru were entrusted with order. Tieg had faith in human potential, and ordered the Seru not to interfere in human affairs.
Terra: But a thousand years ago, the Ra-Seru Rogue staged a rebellion and came to the world! The rebellion was put down with Tieg’s strength, but the humans had learned of the Seru. That’s when the Ra-Seru were sent to the human world, along with the Genesis Trees.
Meta: Our mission was to restore order when impending disaster threatened the human world. The Genesis Tree was also a means of maintaining order.
Ozma: But in the end, as you all know… Humans, possessed by the Mist, took over the Seru-kai.
Terra: I do now know for certain what transpires in Seru-kai. But you can save the Seru-kai and the human world! I am sure you can do it!

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_163733.099
Terra: Noa, don’t be silly. Long ago, I made you a promise, right? I promised this old wolf would stay with you no matter what! That’s what we agreed, right?
Noa: Yeah! Terra! You promised! You promised, so don’t forget!
Gala: All right! It’s time to free the Seru-kai from Songi’s grasp!

MUSIC: Seru-kai

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_163808.459

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_163813.403
So this is the Seru-kai. It’s a pretty cool looking place, but this is absolutely it. It’s just a cloudy blue background, and the platforms that we step on.

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_163820.163Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_163839.667 Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_163848.019
Of course, there’s plenty of treasure to be had.

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_163859.411
Vahn gets some new armor, but it’s barely a step up, and also doesn’t look very different. I’m just going to plow through the dungeon until we get to more plot. I promise you, it’s not that exciting.

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_163907.419 Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_163925.491 Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_163914.331 Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_163931.410Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_164013.987Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_164012.435Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_164033.779
All in all, it’s a very short dungeon. It just has a very high encounter rate.

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_164045.594
Terra: Look! That’s the Great Genesis Tree that the power of the Seru-kai and the Ra-Seru flows.

That… that’s not really a sentence, Terra.

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_164056.090
Ozma: The Great Genesis Tree seems weak. It will die unless we do something.
Meta: That is a special Sim-Seru. It’s robbing the Great Genesis Tree of its life force!

It just looks like gross purple goo to me…HOLY CRAP, IT’S CREEP. IT’S THE ZERG! WHERE’S JIM RAYNOR?!

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_164142.170
Terra: Yes, I suppose… that is what will happen.
Noa: No! Vahn! Gala! We can’t let that happen!
Gala: Maybe we can save the Great Genesis Tree! Let’s get a closer look!

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_164156.713 Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_164200.666

MUSIC: Songi’s Theme

Gala: Songi! What are you doing to the Great Genesis Tree?
Songi: Ha ha ha! The muscle-bound oaf must have a loose screw! It’s obvious! I am using my special Sim-Seru to drain the powers of the Great Genesis Tree! Once I absorb all its power, the Seru-kai will die. And then I, not Cort, will have the power to rule the world!
Noa: But this is the Seru-kai! And the Great Genesis Tree belongs to the Ra-Seru! So how can you come here and drain the Great Genesis Tree’s life away?

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_164227.649
Songi: My Seru grew from a Ra-Seru Egg from East Voz Forest. In other words, this is a Ra-Seru.
Gala: Impossible!
Songi: It was Cort who took a Ra-Seru Egg that lost its strength and turned it into a Sim-Seru. By fusing myself with a Sim-Seru born of a Ra-Seru, I have become the ultimate life form! Ha ha ha! I am a God! The second coming of Tieg!
Noa: You’re Tieg? You can’t be Tieg!
Gala: Don’t be a fool, Songi! Cort’s evil ambitions have taken a hold of your soul!
Songi: You are the fool! And you, Gala! You and the rest are also being controlled by those Ra-Seru! Ha ha ha! So we are all heretics who have strayed from the path of Biron! We’re comrades! So let us settle things once and for all! Come at me! All three of you!

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_164318.529
WHAT THE FFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUuuuuuuuuu……

MUSIC: My Name is Songi

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_164323.145
Songi looks like he’s seen better days. So… this is pretty much the hardest fight in the game. Yes, this is harder than the final boss (yeah, this isn’t the final boss, sorry). Strangely enough, Songi’s physical attacks are the most dangerous. He hits hard, and he hits a lot. It seems like the more damage he takes, the less dangerous he gets though. So that’s a plus.

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_164411.289Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_164407.105 Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_164412.928
Chaos Flare is another single target attack that will do around ~1100 damage to an unspirited character.

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_164448.304
So I’ve been holding onto the Point Card all game. I’m finally going to use it here. It’s better used here than on the last boss.

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_164450.568
Unfortunately, the damage is only onscreen for like 1 frame, and I couldn’t catch it. Imagine it just says 9999 there. Because that’s how much it did. From here, it’s the standard.

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_164542.928 Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_164551.144 Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_164602.000
Yep. If Songi had hit once more, Vahn would have been KOed.

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_164612.368Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_164939.759 Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_164946.934
Of course, it wouldn’t be a boss fight without an attack that hits the entire party.

Genocid-Cannon1 Genocide-Cannon2
That… doesn’t seem that bad. Maybe I had everyone use Spirit this turn though. I can’t say for sure.

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_164951.687 Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_164958.806
eeeesh… Again, one more hit. I ended up getting pretty lucky during this fight.

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_165657.651 Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_165700.915
Like the battle with Cort, even though Vahn hit the killing blow, because Songi is so pivotal to Gala, it will always say that Gala’s team won the battle.

MUSIC: Henchmen of the Mist

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_165737.939
Songi: Ha ha ha! Look at me, Gala! How pitiful I am! Even with the power of the Ra-Seru, I couldn’t… couldn’t defeat… Ooh!

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_165746.987
Songi: Arrgh! My whole body hurts! I can’t take it!
Meta: The Seru-kai is a world intolerant of the presence of ordinary human beings.
Terra: Now that he has lost his Seru, Songi will return to nothingness.
Songi: Gala! Gala! The pain is unbearable! You’re my friend… help me!
Gala: Ozma, can’t we do something for him?
Ozma: I’m sorry, but he can no longer exist in the Seru-kai.
Songi: Arrgh!

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_165808.355
Songi: Gala… You… you’re next! Seru and Ra-Seru, they’re all the same! They’re all useless! Good for nothing Seru! Ha ha ha!

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_165817.867 Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_165824.995
And thus ends Songi. He went out the way he would have wanted: a giant douchebag.

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_165830.666
Terra:
Noa: Terra, what’s wrong?
Terra: It’s no use, Noa! The Great Genesis Tree is too weak to be revived!
Gala: What? You mean the Great Genesis Tree is going to die?!
Noa: Look! The Seru-kai’s sky! It’s changing!

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_165858.379
Gala: The Ra-Seru are growing weaker too! The Great Genesis Tree is almost dead! No! Are our lives to expire with the Seru-kai?
Noa: Vahn, Gala! Let’s pray! Let’s pray to the Great Genesis Tree!
Gala: Our faith is all we have left! Vahn, let’s try!

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_165913.211
Noa: So will the Ra-Seru Terra and Ozma and Meta and us, too! We’ll all die! Please! Come back to life!
Gala: Great Genesis Tree! Show us a miracle! Give life back to the bodies ruined by the evil Sim-Seru!
Noa: Vahn! You must pray as well!
Gala: Vahn! Pray! We must all pray together!
Noa: Come back to life!
Gala: Great Genesis Tree! Hear our prayers!

MUSIC: Hari Speaks

Noa: Hari!
Gala
: Hari! But you disappeared into the earth below Octam!
Hari: The God of time, Rem… known also as Tieg… The prophecies of Rem. They are the words of Tieg! The spirit of Tieg that resides in this body has given us words that transcend time. Our bodies have died. But the death of our bodies has given our souls immortality. Like Tieg, our spirits are now beings that transcend time. Brave Ra-Seru! The will of Tieg will show you the path you must take! It is our mission to carry out the will of Tieg.

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_170034.105
Hari: The Great Genesis Tree is fated to die, and we cannot reverse that.
Gala: But… the Seru-kai!
Hari: All we can do is give the last of shining power to nurture the life of the Great Genesis Tree.

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_170110.129Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_170250.457Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_170257.649 Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_170301.362
Hari: Now we shall attain complete nothingness! But fate and your will are one and the same. Make your own fate with your own hands! Goodbye, Ra-Seru Heroes!
Terra: Noa…
Noa: Terra! Terra! Are you all right?
Terra: You don’t have to worry about me, Noa. Worry about the Great Genesis Tree.
Gala: Noa, Vahn! Let’s give the Ra-Seru the power of the Great Genesis Tree!

MUSIC: Reviving a Genesis Tree

Meta: Thank you, Vahn. We have received the ultimate power.
Terra: Now we can do something about Juggernaut!
Ozma: But we must hurry! Hari gave the Great Genesis Tree life, but I do not know how long that life force will last.
Terra: The Genesis Trees in the human world are linked to the Seru-kai! We must go to Rim Elm!

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_170403.513Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_170418.040 Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_170423.945
MUSIC: Mt. Rikuroa After Mist

Terra: Rim Elm’s Genesis Tree is dead. So we came here.
Gala: I have a bad feeling about this, Vahn! Let’s hurry to Rim Elm!
Noa
: Will everything be okay? Well, this is it.

Next episode will be the finale. The last of Legend of Legaia. BUT FIRST! There’s something special you can do if every member of the party has learned all of their Arts! If that’s the case, go to the Genesis Tree where they first gained their Ra-Seru. Noa’s happens to be right here on Mt. Rikuroa.

Ep. 34.mp4_20150726_170439.712

Wow. It’s expensive, but holy cow, does it do a lot of damage. We can go to West Voz Forest for Gala next.

Again, very expensive, but very impressive. With Rim Elm’s Genesis Tree gone, to get Meta, we have to travel to Warrior’s Square in Sol.

NEXT TIME: THE GRAND FINALE!!

Jette’s Absolute Fortress (Pt. 2) – Legend of Legaia Ep. 33

We are getting alarmingly close to the end of the game now, dear readers. Last time, we managed to take out Jette, and now, we’re going to take out the final Mist Generator of the world. Once it’s destroyed, there will be no more Mist! It’s been a long time coming.

LET’S HOP TO IT.

This next part of the fortress is very straightforward. You just keep ascending trying to get to the top.

Another Warrior Icon is pretty cool. I wonder if they stack. I don’t think I end up trying it though.

Ep. 33.mp4_20150726_155713.237
I realize here that I forgot to show off the new weapon I picked up for Gala. It’s pretty cool looking.

Cort: I must punish you, little sister, for trying to destroy the Mist Generator. Bad girl!
Gala: C-Cort?
Cort: Good to see you all again. You were so good to me in Conkram… so long ago. Noa, I didn’t know it was you. Who would have thought I was your brother!
Noa:  Ooohh. You’re wrong, Cort! You’re not my brother. If you’re my brother, how could you be so bad to Mother and Father?
Cort: Noa, you are such a foolish little girl. The Mist is our salvation. Our parents are happy the way they are.
Noa: Ooohh!
Cort: Rim Elm, that puny cave, East Voz Forest… I underestimated you. I was trying to lure out Ra-Seru to make the Mist Generator. But I never thought you would come this far. That was a miscalculation. But no matter. Once I kill you, everything will be right again. Hee hee hee! I will kill you gently, little sister! I will send all of you to a world free of pain and suffering.

Ep. 33.mp4_20150726_160027.611
Well, shit. Here we are. Cort is the big bad. And it’s time to take him down. It’s not too tough of a fight, but there are a few things to be aware of.

The first thing Cort does is summon a Mystic Shield. The Mystic Shield blocks all damage that is not caused by Arts. So any attack that is not a string of Arts will cause no damage. Luckily, Cort’s defense is pretty abysmal, so Arts do as much damage as a full string of attacks would. It also helps him to resist Magic. Arts are pretty much the only way to go.

Ep. 33.mp4_20150726_160048.851Ep. 33.mp4_20150726_160057.027Ep. 33.mp4_20150726_160059.547 Ep. 33.mp4_20150726_160107.243
That’s about as much as full on attacks do, so not too shabby.

Ep. 33.mp4_20150726_160110.515 Ep. 33.mp4_20150726_160115.227
Mystic Circle causes ~1,000 damage. Not too scary, but make sure to keep your HP pretty high up!

Ep. 33.mp4_20150726_160119.795 Ep. 33.mp4_20150726_160135.779
But with the party pounding out ~10,000 damage per round, I feel like we’re sitting pretty here.

Ep. 33.mp4_20150726_160147.915 Ep. 33.mp4_20150726_160150.771
Guilty Cross is Cort’s standard single target attack. It’s not too bad.

Ep. 33.mp4_20150726_160239.435
Eventually the Mystic Shield will shatter. When that happens, heal as quickly as possible, the use Spirit. Use it OVER AND OVER AGAIN until Cort uses his Evil Seru Magic. Otherwise, you WILL be dead.  I had to wait a couple of round, but I figured better safe than sorry, because at this point in the game, battles take ASS LONG to complete, especially boss battles.

As per the usual big, bad boss fight in any RPG, Evil Seru Magic is the standard, overly-long, super powerful magic attack. In this case, it’s Juggernaut. It’s not as powerful as I thought it would be, but I just started using Spirit immediately without bothering to heal first. I still had enough HP to tank it though.

And from there, it’s not too bad of a battle.
Ep. 33.mp4_20150726_161323.870 Ep. 33.mp4_20150726_161327.406
An interesting touch here is that no matter who wins the battle, it will always go to Noa at the end. Because this battle means so much to her. She even gets a unique victory pose at the end of it.

She is not happy 😦

Cort: The Mist is our salvation. The Mist is eternal. It is perfect harmony… The Mist Generator and I are one. If I die, the Mist Generator dies.

Noa: Why did this happen?
Gala: Vahn! We’re in trouble! The Fortress is collapsing. We haven’t got much time. If we don’t hurry, we’ll be buried alive! Let’s get out of here!
Noa: Why, why?
Vahn: Noa, if you want to live, hurry!
Noa: Y-You’re right, Vahn.

Grantes: Uh-huh.
Gala: Those Seru Wings…
Grantes: The elder gave his permission.
Noa: Hooray! Grantes, I’m so glad you came! Cara, I’m so glad to see you!
Cara: We were worried about you. We were watching the Absolute Fortress from the air. Then we saw this terrific flash of light, so we got here as fast as we could!
Gala: Grantes, that means you’re a Soren again.
Grantes: No, I’m returning these Seru Wings as soon as I’m done with them.

Gala: Ah, it’s good to be human.
Noa: Now all the Mist is gone.
Gala: That’s right! And Juggernaut and the Mist Generator are destroyed as well!
Noa: Let’s go to Conkram. My mother and father are waiting for us.

Gala: Ozma, tell me! What happened?
Ozma: …the Sim-Seru around Conkram grew in an unstable manner. The Sim-Seru could live only in the Mist. So when the Mist disappeared… The Sim-Seru died, and Conkram with it.
Noa: Terra! Terra! Why didn’t you tell me? Why didn’t you tell me Conkram would die if the Mist disappeared?
Terra:

Ep. 33.mp4_20150726_162028.019
Gala: Yet they ordered us to destroy the Mist Generator! So, Noa… don’t blame Terra. There was no other way.
Noa: No! NO! Terra, you lied! I hate you, Terra! Bring my father back to me! Bring my mother back to me!

What a tragic way to end…

Ep. 33.mp4_20150726_162109.210
Village Elder: and destroyed four Mist Generators to save the world from the Mist! Vahn, your deeds are legendary! Your bravery brought the world back from the brink of annihilation! Your determination created hope where there was hopelessness. The world is forever in your debt! Now, children of Rim Elm, Vahn is one of you now! Whatever happens, no matter what troubles you encounter, never forget that!

Ah, I guess we’re in the “go talk to everyone before the end of the game” epilogue.  I’M SURE NOTHING BAD WILL EVER HAPPEN AGAIN. Poor Noa, though 😦

NEXT TIME: We wrap it all up!

Jette’s Absolute Fortress (Pt. 1) – Legend of Legaia Ep. 32

Hello everyone. This game makes me feel sad. But we’re in the home stretch. This is the 3rd to last dungeon in the game, and it’s probably got the best name. The Absolute Fortress? I don’t know what it really means, but it sounds pretty cool.

Let’s mosey, shall we?

Rogue’s Tower – Legend of Legaia Ep. 31

Welcome back! Last time on Legend of Legaia, we finally made it to Conkram! And it was a horrifying alive clam town. From there, we finally ran into Noa’s parents (also somewhat horrifying), and the game fell into the terrible RPG trope of time travel.

Luckily, it’s not for long, and it’s not very convoluted, so let’s get it done!

Zeto: Prince Cort and Jette, in the lab under the castle, will now open the door to the Seru world. Using an elixir from the home of the Seru, we have created a new substance. That substance is the Mist. A new weapon that amplifies the power of our Seru. When released into this cylinder, the Mist will turn the soldiers into mighty warriors! Gentlemen! From his laboratory, Prince Cort says he is ready!

Ep. 31.mp4_20150726_135628.152
Zeto: Look well at the power of Conkram’s new weapon, the Mist! The pride of Conkram!

Gala: The Mist just can’t be controlled by humans!
Noa: Listen, everyone! To the underground! Quickly! We must turn off the Mist! Let’s go to the laboratory and turn off the Mist!
Gala: You’re right, Noa! We can’t desert the people of Conkram like this.

Ep. 31.mp4_20150726_135742.543
Of course, Mist means enemies.

We make our way down to the underground, where we met King Nebular in present-day Conkram.

Ep. 31.mp4_20150726_135827.910
Gala: There are things that look like Ra-Seru Eggs coming out of that hole.
Noa: Terra, what’s going on? Why are Ra-Seru Eggs coming out of that hole?
Terra: That hole leads to the sealed Rogue’s Tower, on the frontier of Seru-kai. Those are alter egos of Rogues, rebel Ra-Seru. They have the same properties as Ra-Seru Eggs.
Meta: The Mist Generator here is a primitive one. With our strength, we may stop it temporarily, but unless we cut off the flow of that material, the Mist Generator can’t be shut off completely.
Gala: In other words, we have to cut off the source.
Ozma: We must destroy Rogue’s Tower! That will stop that flow, and stop the Mist!
Noa: Rogue’s Tower…
Terra: The Rogues are evil Ra-Seru who plotted a rebellion against Tieg a thousand years ago.
Gala: There’s only one thing to do, Vahn! We must destroy the head Rogue in Rogue’s Tower! We can’t destroy the Mist of the future unless we destroy the Mist here!
Meta: You must be careful. We can’t return here unless we defeat the Rogues.
Ozma: And one more thing, before you go to Rogue’s Tower, make sure you are fully prepared for battle.

Noa: It’s a piece of a Rogue.
Terra: That’s right. It’s a Rogue Fragment.
Gala: So that has the same power as a Ra-Seru? I guess I still have a lot to learn about Seru.
Ozma: The Seru-kai is a world beyond human comprehension.
Noa: Is Rogue’s Tower in the Seru-kai? What kind of place is it?
Terra: Rogue’s Tower is part of Seru-kai, but the tower itself is the body of a rogue.
Meta: The Rogues were once Ra-Seru, and they can hear what we say.
Ozma: That’s why we can’t say anything more.
Noa: But…
Terra: Don’t worry. Instead of talking, I’ll concentrate on protecting you from Rogue’s evil.
