Ys Celceta Log #15

Didn’t really do much today since I spent time gathering materials for weapons reinforcement. ^^ Nevertheless, I did explore the OTHER side of the Eleduk suburbs at some point as well as completed the Selray and Comodo side quests. It seems these are the only two locations with new quests after Eleduk. I even ran around talking to everyone in every town and village to see if anything new would show up on the other message boards too. ^^ Actually, I didn’t check with everyone in Highland. Oh well.

This log is more or less a walkthrough for the Ruins on Lake Tolemes (トルメス湖上遺跡).

Edit on Oct 17: Screenshots added~!

Ys Celceta - 98.3% Done!
I wonder where the 1.7% is? Perhaps there are some outdoor areas in the two dungeons I haven’t been to yet? (Click to enlarge~!)

  • Selray’s quest sends you back to The Jade Cave (翡翠の洞窟). This time, you have to fight lots and lots of giant spiders. The screenshot just doesn’t capture the sheer amount. ^^  Initially, there’s like 8 of them, I think? But once you start killing them off, new ones drop in from the top of the screen to replace them. :/ Oh, apparently, this side quest only appears if you completed a previous one called 群がる漆黒 which was also commissioned by Bertha (ベルタ). That one shows up among the first batch of quests in Selray after the finishing The Sacred Beasts’ Nest.
    .
  • Comodo has 2~! Zaizen’s quest has a pre-requisite as well: you have to have completed 新たな細工素材・其の二 which I wrote about in Log #11. (It’s in the 4th bullet point.) For this one, he needs an Ancient Bone (盤古の骨). This material is easily obtainable by exchanging 8 Strong Bones (丈夫な骨) at the shop in The Roos’ Nest. Otherwise, you can beat up some of the pointy-headed Zorats (ゾラーツ) for their drops in the mini tunnels at the The Ancient Underground Ruin. Finishing this quest expands Zaizen’s inventory to include the rank IV items as well as some other stuff. Oh, he gives you a Life Ring IV (ライフリングⅣ) as a reward.
    .
    The second Comodo quest is to go to The Basin of Waterfall (滝壺の洞窟) and fight off some frog(?) things. The fight plays like the boss battle in The Inn of Frogs.
    .
  • At some point, I realized that I never went south in Eleduk. When I did, I found the gap that I came across while running around in the Forest of Ash. When connected, I got my trophy for removing/lowering all the barriers around Celceta. Of course, when this trophy is obtained will vary for players. I just backtrack a lot. 😛
    .
  • Afterwards, I took the path to the other possible location of the Mask of the Moon. There’s a chest along the way that contains 3 Panacea (万能薬).
    .
  • There’s a point where the path becomes snowy. Kind of neat. Even neater is that there is both a volcano and some ice mountain! I was wondering where the fire and ice dungeons were in this game!
    .
  • Unfortunately, Leo the doofus and his flunkies show up again. I think, however, Leo’s actually a bit useful since he gives you some information or something. I believe part of the intel is he provides is that the Masked Army is frequently seen in the vicinity of the mountain.
    .
  • There’s a red memory fragment here that shows a brief conversation between Griselda and Leo. There’s some minor revelations here for both characters. Adol’s strength increases by 1~!
    .
  • Oh yeah, since I went to Lake Tolemes as a roo, I blew past the red memory fragment there.  Well, it’s not like Adol can interact with it in that form. ^^ That one shows Nina, Camilla, and Frida where the homunculus reports information that Dulen has given her. And there’s something about a Black Key too. D: Adol’s max HP goes up by 10 after this~!
    .
  • Okei! Doing Tolemes first! The dungeon is called Ruins on Lake Tolemes (トルメス湖上遺跡). Buh. Enemies just suddenly appeared! And they throw large boomerangs or something!
    .
  • Chest on bottom has a Enigma Troche (エニグマトローチ). The chest on the right isn’t accessible right now, it seems. :/ There’s another one on the left side that’s in the same situation. However, at the top of the west stairs, there is a chest that can be opened for 3 Panaceas (万能薬)!
    .
  • ……….. There are so many chests in the place. Here’s where I went:
    .
    – From the main area, I went up the west set of stairs and then through the sole doorway. After exploring the next zone, I took the right-most south exit which lead to another floor on the east side. There is a red chest if you follow the path all the way south and then make a left. It has a Rune Cloak+8  (ルーンクローク+8). In the previous room with all the three exits and millions of chests, the other exit on the leads back to the upper floor of the main area.
    .
  • Going back into that zone with 3 exits and many chests since I didn’t open the chest at the bottom. (It had an amethyst (アメジスト).) In the same water section, there’s a crack in the northern wall.  You can look at it but there doesn’t seem to be anything that can be done to break it? I tried the claw but it didn’t work. Interestingly enough, you can kill the enemy on the other side of the way by constantly hurling skills at it. 😛
    .
  • Taking the east-most exit again (back to the area that had the red chest with the Rune Cloak) and going through the one doorway there. Entering it will trigger a staticky screen and then Adol will automatically walk to the center of the platform ahead. A red fragment will appear. A scene with Eldeel and a mysterious man will occur. (The man is obviously Lefance as Eldeel refers to him as “Your Majesty”. And the character portrait is of him anyway. :P) So much talking between to two. It’s not voiced though. :/ Anyway, Adol gets +10 to his max HP~!
    .
  • Afterwards the group stands around and ponders who the memory belonged to. You’re given the option to choose Lefance or Eldeel.
    .
  • Ooh. Got a new monster spoil from the, uh, Sodohs (ソドウォー)~! A Beak(?) Drill (クチバシドリル)! There’s a waterway with a red chest at the west end of it. It’s a Spirit Necklace (精霊の首飾り). I’m not sure what it is but I think it’s an auto-revive item? Once you arrive at the stairs to the north, there’s a chest for Dulen nearby with a Power Nostrum (力の霊薬).
    .
  • Oh yay. More swimming in the next room. But there are three chests (which showed up on the mini map earlier). Red chest has a 戦士の刻印Ⅳ. The chest left of it has Silver Ore x 50. On the right is Coal x 50. There’s no other exit here so it’s back to the previous room.
    .
  • Taking the west exit from the central path. This next zone is yet another part of the room with many chests. I can continue on the same level or go down into the water. I’m going to stay on the path for now. At the center, there seems to be a device that looks similar to the ones from the Tower of Divine Guidance. I’m guessing Canlilica is needed. I’m ignoring it now in favour of the exploring the rest of this place. :3
    .
  • Following the path to the end got me to another chest for Dulen which had a Gold Dragon Amulet (金竜の護符) inside.  Underwater is a red chest with a … Silver Crown of the Saint? (聖者の銀冠)
    .
  • Now for the device~! I take it it’ll open the wall to the south? Let’s see. Yup. I was right. :B It was a flood gate after all! There’s a platform underwater that filled a gap below. :0
    .
  • With the water level equalized, I went back to the wall with the crack and switched in Ozma. :3 There goes the wall!
    .
  • Finally on the west side! The layout looks exactly like the other east. (The right area was shaped like a 3 and this one is like a curvy E.) Like the other side, there’s a chest to the north that’s underwater. It has a Bitter Potion.
    .
  • Taking the middle exit leads to the last chest in the room that had the flood gate. There’s an Onyx in it.
    .
  • Back in the curvy E section and going south. Next zone has a chest to the north with 3 Bitter Potions.
    .
  • Following the path upwards. There’s another device for Canlilica. Ooh. This is pretty cool. Another flood gate opened and now there’s a small waterfall which powers the water wheel on the ground floor. I was wondering what the gear-like thing was. Anyway, with the wheel moving, two sets of stairs connect allowing access to the top(?) floor!
    .
  • Duh, there’s still a chest on the east side that I can’t figure out how to get to. Gonna continue on though.
    .
  • Seems to be outdoors now~! Waystone touched! There’s definitely a boss battle up ahead. 😛 Buh. Long conversation and then those sacred beasts appear and do stuff. Frida explains things.
    .
  • Running to the dais and gee, another random memory. More explanations about the beasts and stuff. Defense +1~!
    .
  • Ozma gains some understanding about his parents, his clan, and the Spada.
    .
  • Oh gee. The boss finally appears and what a cheater! Here’s the actual boss pic: Not confident to take on the party without resorting to this, huh? Ah, the fight’s actually kind of fun … well, until I got hit with the stupid beam. 😛 Evaded it like 3 times and then got it head on. >_>
    .
  • What’s in this golden chest, I wonder? Another magic artifact, I bet! …………………….. WTF? < spoiler > It’s a PIECE OF THE MASK OF THE MOON!? Well, I guess that’s why there are 2 dungeons and 2 possible resting places. 😛< / spoiler >
    .
  • Heading back to the entrance now. There we go. Got to the chest due to the water level being higher. :B Ooh! A Roda Fruit~! (ロダの葉)
    .
  • I’m heading to the other dungeon but I’m stopping the log here. ^^~
