Well, hey there! Last time on Save File plays Legend of Legaia, we actually had a legitimately feel good moment when reuniting Cara and Grantes. We now have access to the Soren camp, and we need to talk to them in order to try and assault the Floating Castle to take out the Mist Generator.
We’re getting into the home stretch now, so let’s hop to it!
MUSIC: The Soren Fly
Cructes: Most impressive! I now realize that you truly possess the determination to save the world. We’ve tried every tactic against that Floating Castle. But you, with the powers of your Ra-Seru, should be able to destroy it! I have decided that the Soren should help you! Go speak to Luctes, in the square. He will take you to the Floating Castle.
Luctes: Now, then. I’ll take you to the Floating Castle! Good! Now hold on tight!
Time to head inside! Unfortunately, this game is… pretty bad at making dungeons interesting. They don’t even look that cool. So I probably won’t have too much to say until plot starts happening again.
MUSIC: Mist Generator
Puera: Just between you and me, that Zora is a real slave driver! We don’t even need to guard a power unit like this, but she ordered us here anyway. Hmm. Wait a minute! Zora didn’t say anything about new people coming! That means… You are those Ra-Seru wearing fools! You son of a… I’ll teach you a lesson!
The Puera is an interesting enemy. Almost 100% of the time, it uses its special ability Death Game.
It’s your basic carnival game. Four cards pop up with 4 different options. Puera dies, targeted character dies, targeted character gets healed, or both get damaged. However, as long as you’re paying attention, you should almost always be able to pick out the Puera dies card.
And, as promised, the Puera dies.
I don’t know why they act like the Pueras are a threat. I guess if I wasn’t paying attention (likely, I’ve been playing this game with YouTube going on my other monitor) there’s a chance I might pick one of the other cards.
: Yes, I hear it too!
: But she’s not here… Zora, the one who deceived Grantes. I thought she would be here.
: You’re right. This is the castle lord’s room, but where’s Zora?
: I wanted to defeat her and get back the Ra-Seru Egg…
Luctes: This is bad! Everyone hide! Don’t let him see you!
: Zora! Are you Zora?
Zora: And what if I am?
: Give me back the Ra-Seru Egg you tricked Grantes out of!
Zora: Oh, little Noa! You are just as silly as I heard! Ha ha ha! I am loved and protected by Cort. Surely you didn’t expect me to just hand you the Ra-Seru Egg!
Zora: But don’t worry… I will fight you! If you win, I will tell you where the Ra-Seru Egg is.
MUSIC: Mist Generator Guardian
Okay, wow. I usually don’t make jokes/say things like this, but Zora needs to eat a damn sandwich. That does NOT look healthy.
Dark Typhoon hits pretty hard, but Spoon can heal that right up.
All in all, Zora isn’t too bad of a boss fight. Her single target attacks are very manageable, Dark Typhoon hits hard, but as long as I keep everyone’s HP pretty high, that’s not much of a problem either. She can also turn a character to stone, but Vahn and Gala are both wearing Wonder Amulets to prevent status changes, and I have plenty of Medicine to cure it if Noa gets hit.
Gala may not have his Miracle Arts yet, but Electric Fist + Neo Raising is still one hell of a combo, allowing him to stay in the respectable damage range.
: Zora! Tell me where the Ra-Seru Egg is!
Zora: You silly fool, Noa. I used the Ra-Seru Egg… long ago, as an important component of the Mist Generator.
: What? The Ra-Seru Egg is a component of the Mist Generators? Ozma? What does this mean?
Ozma: What Zora says is correct. Mist Generators use both Ra-Seru and Ra-Seru Eggs…
: Terra, why didn’t you tell me before?!
Terra: I’m sorry, Noa. I was afraid you might get the wrong idea… that the Ra-Seru are creating the Mist.
MUSIC: Songi’s Theme
: Why? Why would you destroy the Mist Generator?
Songi: Oh, you are too much! The musclebound oaf is still as dumb as ever! I’ll tell you why I did it. The whole Floating Castle was just a trap to lure you in and kill you. The Floating Castle’s Mist Generator was just a piece of junk! Even its Mist was no good! I was going to destroy it and you with it after you finished off Zora.
Songi: Zora! You’re still alive!
Zora: C-Cort tried to kill me…?
Songi: That’s right. He used you as bait for that very important trap. Not even Cort would expect you to defeat the Ra-Seru!
Zora: But… Cort loved me… He said he loved me.
GREAT GOOGLY MOOGLY!
Songi: If this meddlesome woman hadn’t opened her big mouth, you would have fallen into the trap, and I wouldn’t have had to destroy the Mist Generator!
: Songi! What trap? What do you mean?
Songi: Ha ha ha! Stupid, simple-minded barbarian girl! Use your little brain and think! This Castle used the Mist Generator’s energy to float. Here’s a tough question. What happens to the Floating Castle when the Mist Generator is gone?
Songi: Congratulations, you answered correctly! Your prize is a rapid free-fall to the surface!
: Songi, wait! If the Floating Castle was a trap for us… Then where’s the Mist Generator creating the Mist in Karisto Kingdom?
Songi: Gala, you are a hopeless dimwit! Instead of the Mist, you should be worried about your own life! Only six minutes till impact! Bye! Have a nice trip! See you next “fall,” haha!
MUSIC: Run away! RUN AWAY!
SIX MINUTES UNTIL DEATH!!! AGUABHUAHGALGLAUGLAUGLBHALGHLABHALGHLABGUALGHALGH!!!!
You can get into battles, but luckily the timer stops during battles. If it didn’t, you’d basically be guaranteed to die. I just equip the Good Luck Bell to decrease the amount of encounters and book it on out of there. There’s nothing special, just leave the exact same way you got in.
Luctes: I’m sorry!!!
Luctes: I apologize. We had to get away from the Seru monsters, and so we were watching from the air.
MUSIC: The Soren Fly
Meta: The Mist Generator is a machine that uses Ra-Seru as a catalyst to make the Mist.
Ozma: A Ra-Seru also has the power to take the life of other Ra-Seru. So far we have destroyed the Mist Generators by killing the Ra-Seru sealed inside.
: It must have been painful to kill a fellow Ra-Seru, even if to destroy the Mist Generators.
: Terra, I’m so sorry. I didn’t realize why you were so sad.
Terra: There was nothing else to do. But I am sure the Ra-Seru who died with the Mist Generators are better off dead than living to serve evil.
: It was a bittersweet victory. Even so… Songi said that the Floating Castle was merely a trap. If that’s true, then where is the Mist in Karisto Kingdom coming from?
Cructes: I can’t understand what the Ra-Seru are saying to you. But if you are discussing Gala’s question, I have already investigated that. Having now learned that the Floating Castle’s Mist Generator is powerless, I ordered a reconnaissance team to find the Mist Generator generating the Mist over Karisto. They found it in the mountains of North Karisto! If only we could destroy it now. All of Legaia would be free of the Mist forever! The Mist Generator is near Conkram, which once fought a war with Sol. In Conkram, you may also find out about Noa’s parents as well. It is the Soren’s duty to take you there! This I have already ordered Luctes to do. You should leave for Conkram as soon as you are ready.
: Vahn, did you hear that? Conkram! We’re going to Conkram! I finally get to go to Conkram, where my mother and father are!
NEXT TIME: CONKRAM!
