Legend of Legaia Ep. 28 – Buma and the Soren

Buma & the Sorens – Legend of Legaia Ep. 28

Welcome back to Let’s Play Legend of Legaia! Last time we managed to defeat the Delilas Family as well as Koru. With that done, Buma is now defrosted, so now we can (in theory) revive the Genesis Trees in Buma. And then we’ll figure out all the stuff that gets to go along with that.

Let’s get to it!

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_103315.725
Well, let’s see how Buma looks when it isn’t completely frozen!

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_103320.484
Wow, that’s… actually really cool.

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_103332.572
Noa: Vahn, Gala! I don’t believe it! Buma isn’t frozen anymore!
Gala: You’re right. I didn’t know Buma was such a beautiful town.
Noa: Stop standing around! C’mon! We have to go revive the Genesis Tree! I’ll go ahead of you!
Gala: Ha ha ha! What an impatient girl! Come on, Vahn, let’s go!

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_103407.844
Noa: The ice on the Genesis Tree is melting away!
Gala: It’s just like Dr. Usha said.
Noa: Terra! Now we can wake up the Genesis Tree!
Terra: That’s right. Since there are three Genesis Trees, let’s split up.

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_103620.484
Noa: I’m so happy, Vahn! Terra feels stronger now!
Cara: Who would have thought the Genesis Tree had such power!
Noa Gala: Cara?
Cara: Well, excuse me, but I was watching you the entire time. It’s amazing. So the Genesis Tree of Buma had such powers after all. I thought that it was too late for us to do anything.
Noa: Um, Cara… can I have the Ra-Seru Egg that you have?
Gala: Now that Buma, your home, is back to normal, you don’t need the Ra-Seru Egg anymore!
Cara: Sorry, but I haven’t gotten my “time” back yet. So please, just leave me alone.

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_103706.891
Cara: I buried something here. That day, I buried my heart here.
Gala: There’s nothing we can do, Vahn. Let’s just leave Cara alone for now.
Noa: I didn’t know you could bury your heart and live. Oh, I just don’t get it!
Cara: Long ago, I buried my heart and Grantes’ heart here.

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_103738.586 Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_103743.266
Gala: Humanlike bodies but with Seru Wings. Those are Soren, all right. They must have found out about Buma’s Genesis Tree. They’ve come to take a look!
Noa: Hey, Soren! It’s me, Noa! Over here!
Gala: Ha ha ha! Noa, you’re too far! They can’t hear you!
Noa: I wish the Soren would land over here.
Gala: Hey, that’s a good idea. If we had their help… Then we could get to the Floating Castle, where the Mist Generator is. We just have to talk to those Soren.
Noa: The Soren! They’re gone!

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_103814.306
Noa: Cara, you’re bleeding! Your hand is all bloody!
Gala: Cara, is that it? Is that what you buried under the ground?
Cara: Ha! Go ahead and laugh if you think it’s funny! You’re right. This is the only memory I have left. This is the music he… Grantes wrote after hearing my song.
Noa: It must be love! That’s great, Cara! That stands for your love! I don’t know much about love, but… let me see that!
Cara: Uh…

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_103840.763
Noa: I’ll take this music to Grantes for you. Leave it to me!
Cara: Well… thank you.
Gala: We don’t really have time for that, but… oh, well.
Cara: Please, do this for me! I’m sure that if Grantes hears that song, he’ll change his mind!

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_103947.649 Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_103956.682
There is, of course, a new Arms Shop in Buma. Luckily for me, there are only two new items, new weapons for Vahn and Noa, and I’m actually able to afford them without any trouble.

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_104014.378
We still need to heal up after our showdown with the Delilas Family, and then the battle with Koru as well.

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_104026.098
King Nebular: Noa. I feel you’re presence so strongly. You’re right near us. But this will be the last time we can send you our words.
Queen Minea: He… he has found us out.
Noa: Who has? Who are you talking about?
Queen Minea: The man who brought the Mist into the world.
King Nebular: The man who invaded the realm of the Gods by changing the Seru and creating Sim-Seru. His name…
Queen Minea: He is Cor…

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_104054.305
Noa: Mother? Father?

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_104101.362
Noa: Who is that? Who’s there?!
????: Ha ha haaaa! How desperate you are! Noa! Foolish Noa! I don’t need to give you my name! Ha! You and that idiot Ra-Seru can struggle all you want! The more you struggle, the more I can taste your despair!
Noa: Bastard! What have you done with my mother? What have you done with my father?
????: Listen well, and I shall tell you! If you have the power, come to Conkram for yourself and see! Your parents are there!
Noa: Conkram!

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_104128.601
Noa: Are you afraid of me? Fight me! I’ll kick your butt! Fatherrrr! Oh, Mother!

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_104145.993
It really bothers me how they don’t mention the dreams. At all. Ever.

So I decided to Door of Wind my way over to Sol, because it’s not really worth the time to trek across the world map. I then make my way up to the Cafe where Grantes is drowning his sorrows.

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_104224.752
Noa: Here! Here’s some music! Play this!
Pianist: Hmm… This is so… simple. Hmm.
Noa: Are you going to play it or not?
Pianist: All right, I’ll play it! Geez, what an impatient young girl! Ahem!

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_104304.137
Noa: Grantes! You know what? The Mist in Buma is all gone now.
Grantes: The Mist… The Mist at Buma is gone?
Gala: I know I’m young and inexperienced compared to you, but I’ll tell you this! Now I don’t know what happened to you in the past. I don’t know whether you hurt the one you love… And you can turn your back on your past and sit around despondent about your future, but I have no respect for someone who tries to kill his own spirit like that!
Grantes:  That song… did Cara…?
Noa: That’s right! Cara loves you, and… she wants you to remember that love!Gala: Cara said that no matter what happens, that love will always be true.
Grantes: Cara said that? I remember now. That’s the melody she was playing on my flute the first time I saw her. I came down to the surface following that melody. That’s when I found Cara. She was playing the flute! I know I’m a horrible man. I didn’t take responsibility for the love I felt. Cara… do you think she’ll forgive me?
Vahn: Of course she will!
Grantes: Sorry, fellas. I guess I’m still depending too much on others. Now I realize that! You taught me a lesson. Now that the Mist is gone from Buma, I’m going to go to Buma on my own two legs and tell Cara! Tell her that it’s never too late to change as long as the desire for change is there! Maybe if I tell her that I am grateful, from the bottom of my heart, maybe she would forgive me, and then… We’ll be waiting for you! Both of us, together, will be waiting in Buma!

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_104447.840
Gala: Even with Grantes the way he was, love was still alive! A miracle is sure to happen!
Noa: Wow, Gala! You’re great! You know everything about love!
Gala: Uh, ahem, well…

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_104458.735
Noa: Wow, you’re great!

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_104522.896
I just use another Door of Wind to get back to Buma, because again, forget the world map.

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_104551.967
Cara: It’s all right, Grantes. Now that you’re ar my side, everything is all right.

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_104601.487 Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_104604.399
Noa: Cara! Grantes! So, you made up, huh?
Grantes: A-Actually, I… We’re just…

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_104619.087
Noa: What do you mean, Gala?
Gala: If you don’t mind, I’d like to hear what happened.
Cara: I don’t mind. Why don’t you tell them, Grantes.
Grantes: I was… torn between my love for Cara and Soren law. It was then that Zora, the master of the Floating Castle, appeared to me. Zora said she would give Cara Seru Wings, if I helped her. Like a fool, I believed her and stole this town’s Ra-Seru Eggs. There were three Eggs. I gave two to Zora. The remaining Egg I gave to Cara.

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_104650.319
Cara: He gave it to me and said it was a symbol of our love.
Grantes: But of course Zora lied. Ha! She never gave me Seru Wings. I escaped with my life, but my Soren people found out everything I did. As punishment for breaking Soren law, they took my Seru wings and banished me to the surface. For ten years after that, as you know, I…
Noa: Grantes lived alone. Cara was alone too. I understand!
Grantes: Yes, I was alone. But you saved me. At first I didn’t want to give up being Soren, but now I’m ready to live as a surface-dweller. With Cara.
Cara: Oh, Grantes!
Noa: Love! That’s love! I know it! Love is wonderful!
Gala: I hate to interrupt, but we have to see the Soren. Can you help us?

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_104746.718
Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_104749.534
Grantes: This is a flute the Soren use to call for help. A surface-dweller has no use for it. If you want to meet the Soren, go to the summit of Mt. Dhini and play this flute. The Soren will think you’re a Soren and fly right over to you! Ha ha ha!

…We don’t see that as a problem? Impersonating a Soren when the Soren hate anything that isn’t a Soren???  All right then.

Cara: Also, I want to give this back to you. This can’t help me anymore.
Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_104813.326

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_104819.158
Gala: Noa… We must get going.
Noa: Huh? Why?
Gala: We don’t want to bother the two lovebirds, do we?
Noa: I don’t really understand, but since you know about love, Gala, I’ll do what you say.
Gala: Hmm.

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_105056.405
Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_105104.637
Now that there is no longer a giant glacier in the way, the party can make their way north past Buma towards Mt. Dhini.

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_105111.733 Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_105118.517
You know, I really have to question the effectiveness of the Genesis Trees. Especially in this case, as there were 3 of them. And they don’t seem to have cleared off that much Mist.

MUSIC: Mt. Dhini

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_105123.125
So, here’s Mt. Dhini. It’s not that exciting.

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_105131.045
Mt. Dhini, sacred land of Soren. None may climb Mt. Dhini without the mark of the Soren. The Soren Flue inside the satchel suddenly began to shine. I hear a voice from Birdman Gate! Mt. Dhini is open to those with the mark of Soren!

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_105145.253
Wa-la.

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_105150.237
I can’t remember if the Garnet is new, but most enemies by this point are pallete swaps of earlier enemies.

I think this means an enemy can’t block your attacks? Who knows. I could try it out, but my accessory setup is pretty good as is.

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_105224.141 Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_105237.268
A new Seru! And the next level of Mushura. Mushura is super fun to say. Also, a Phoenix, which are always handy and welcome.

Wonder Amulets are awesome, preventing all status effects. I think I have 2 now. But to be honest, the only real crippling status effect would be Rot. The rest are just kind of nuisances.

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_105539.171
Gained a level while scaling the mountain.

The Good Luck Bell helps lower the encounter rate, which would be great if I didn’t have to constantly be fighting to make sure I have enough money for the next set of equipment. I might find some use for it at the ass end of the game though.

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_105643.091 Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_105644.259
Noa: Play the flute to call the Soren!
Gala: There’s no Mist at the summit! The Soren can fly here on their Seru Wings! Vahn, why don’t you play the Soren Flute you have with you?

MUSIC:  Evil Seru(?)

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_105723.538
Noa: From Grantes! Grantes gave it to us!

Oh, dammit.

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_105727.986
Luctes: This is the Soren’s holy place. You earthbound humans must leave here at once! Come! We are leaving!
Gala: What are you, allies of the Mist? Are you protecting the Mist?

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_105737.995
Gala: Then you are prepared to fight the Mist and its allies?
Luctes: Of course we are! That is why we punished Grantes, for helping build the Floating Castle. Many brave Soren have died trying to attack the Floating Castle.
Noa: Then we should work together! We’re on the same side!
Gala: We revived the Genesis Tree. The Mist is gone! Now we need the power of the Soren to destroy the Mist Generator in the Floating Castle!
Luctes: !

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_105803.178
Luctes: All right…

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_105818.882
Luctes: You shall come to our camp and speak with our Elder! Is that agreeable? Good! We’re going to fly, so hold on tight! If you fall, you’ll die! Carry them gently! Gently, do you hear? I said G-E-N-T-L-Y!

Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_105842.577  Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_105844.690Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_105856.258Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_105907.258Ep. 28.mp4_20150726_105920.258

I mean… we COULD do that… but…
