Ys Celceta Log #11

The first few points will be done from memory since I played a little bit last night just before I went to bed. I wasn’t in a position to jot down notes. ^^

Anyway, I’m 68% done! 😀

Ys Celceta - 68% Done~!
The map’s gotten too large to show in its entirety. ^^ (Click to enlarge.)


Here’s what I remember from my short gameplay yesterday~!

  • Checked out the Danan quests but didn’t do any of them. XD
    .
  • Headed back to Casnan for the heck of things. Reported to Griselda and got the Aeolus Urn (風魔の壺) as well as some money.
    .
  • Spotted a new quest at the bar. Went to visit Lucille (ルシール) to see what’s up with her drunk pikkard. She asks for medicine to get the pikkard back to a sober state. The game gives you the option to choose from all your remedy-type consumables. I chose the 万能薬 since it was the cure-all item. 😛 And it worked~! Look at it sparkle!
    .
  • Next, I headed to Comodo because I wanted to make more axe accessories since one of the Danan quests require the you give one up. If I didn’t do this, I would have completely missed this quest, I think! *__* I mean, it doesn’t show up on the board until AFTER you speak to Zaizen (ザイゼン). (Here’s the request: click~!) You’re supposed to beat up some monsters to get a 怪魔の厚皮 (a thick hide of sorts) but I could swear there’s no indication of where to go. I actually had to consult a Japanese walkthrough site for this one. (Er, it’s dropped by the Guspown enemy in The Ancient Underground Ruin.)
    .
  • My next stop was Selray and good old Shiryu (シリュー) requests the party to test out yet another weapon. This time, you can choose between a hammer or halberd (top and bottom choices, respectively). I don’t like using Canlilica very much so I selected the halberd for Frida. I have no idea where the hell the Madgra Slef or whatever (マドグラ・スレフ) is but according to the JP site I linked in the previous point, it’s in the Forest of Ash. I take it I should be able to get in there now since the next story-related flag is beyond that area.
    .
  • Oh, about the weapon — it inflicts Freeze on the user so equip the Blue Scale Amulet (蒼鱗の護符) on her. And of course, the weapon itself also freezes enemies.
    .
  • So now, I’m off to complete the Comodo quest and then probably visit Highland before committing to the Danan quests and completing the Selray one.
    .
  • Whoa. Guards in front of the doorway in the Ruin. 😮 Oh dear lord, the enemy isn’t dropping the bloody item I need! …………….. I forgot Dulen was equipped with the rare item up accessory. 9__9 (I was using Adol which had the gold up one. ^^)
    .
  • Wow. This isn’t working. I think I fought about 10 of them already. D’oh! The Japanese author noted that you can exchange Tough Hide (丈夫な皮) for one in Danan. >_> Ah well, at least Dulen levelled up and I got lots of money fighting the buggers.
    .
  • HEY! You can still do the multi-Flash Guard thing by mashing on the triangle button. D: I think I was just imaging things. :/ Ooh. Got the Skill Finish trophy.
    .
  • Bleh. Taking the Danan route. 😛 Oh, you can now synthesize consumable items. Neat~! Guh. Damn Yammi (ヤミー)! He(?) wants so many items. I think I’m missing one and there are two others where I only have 1 each. :/
    .
  • I don’t see anyone that can do the exchange. Going to Highland now. :E Or not. Doing the Danan monster elimination side quest first. (Edit: I’m just blind. Found the shop. :P)
    .
  • :/ Got hit with the “Misfortunate” status ailment. I think it’s causes something like losing gold when you take damage. >_<
    .
  • HA! What a terrible battle! The Anderaula (アンデラウラ) surround you and dive bomb the hell out of your party. They also inflict poison and curse. I ended up running in circles until I had enough SP to use skills on them. ^^ I suppose Flash Guarding and Flash Moving would have helped immensely. Derp. Oh yes, these monsters are also level 35 enemies.
    .
  • LOL. Upgraded the urn so now gold will pop up of the player character at any time. ^^ I have Adol just standing around in Highland and a little gold nugget flies out of him every few seconds. ^^ Dulen and Frida keep running around and nabbing them. ^o^; They seem to been in varying denominations so sometimes, you’ll get 10 Gold and other times, it may be 100 G! :0! The smallest amount is 1G. It stops when you’re chatting with and NPC though.
    .
  • Eh? This quest in Highland. It seems like Ethan(?) (エタン) wants autographs from people whose names start with “Vo” (ヴォ), “Ki” (キ), and “Mo” (モ). Kind of an obnoxious side quest. :/
    .
  • First stop is Selray cuz Momocha would be the “Mo” character. :3 Casnan is next for Vonjean (ヴォンジーン)~!  He’s standing around in the Item Shop. Finally, Kisera (キセラ) in Danan. She’s the NPC just standing around where the frog and chicken are roaming about.
    .
  • Yay. Got the item I needed for the Comodo quest and completed the Highland one at the same time too!
    .
  • Woo! Got appeased all friendly animals and got a new trophy! :3 This brings me up to a mere 28% complete. >_> Not sure how many I can get without doing a second playthrough. I most likely won’t go for Platinum since I can’t see myself succeeding in Nightmare difficulty. :\
    .
  • Completing the Comodo quests allows you to create more items like the third tier ones such as Life Ring and Power Ring III~!
    .
  • Gonna do one more stop by Danan one more time before continuing with the story since I want to outfit my main characters with better armour first. Heh. Almost got 2000 G from the Urn. XD Man, have exchange cheap materials (the ones that cost 1G) into ones that have a value of 25G or higher so I can sell them off. ^^
    .
  • Just reinforced the new weapons and armour that I purchased. X___x
    .
  • Now to the Forest of Ash. …………… Why does Leo even exist? Such an annoying excuse for comedy relief. 9__9
    .
  • Ooh! Frida’s Personal Action is to … create some flower that’ll absorb the evil gas (which I referred to earlier as barriers)?
    .
  • Ugh. Another area with less than stellar background music. What did Falcom Sound Team jdk do to the Ys IV soundtracks? :/ Anyway, the Forest of Ash has 2 exits. I’m taking the northern one first. (I should note that I’m not listing every single chest I come across. ^^)
    .
  • In the next zone, there’s a Dulen chest to the northwest. It contains the 不動の玉帯 … A … Firm Beaded Sash?  It prevents knock back during skill execution. Aw man, there’s a blocked exit to the north. :/
    .
  • Oops. Bumped into the gas to the east. XD Oh, this leads the Underground Forest or Table Mountain again. Too lazy to check. 😛 Backtracking to the first area with the two exits and taking the western one. Ah, it leads to a memory fragment. < spoiler >It’s a short one showing Adol’s first meeting with Riesa </spoiler >. DEF +1 get.
    .
  • It’s already past 12 AM so it’s time for a new log! :3
