Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World
|Before the last battle against the commander and the church officers, Emil becomes angry with Marta for bringing trouble to Luin. When she offers to give herself up, Tenebrae tells Emil a secret. What is it?||Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World
She will die if Ratatosk is removed before he awakens. After Ratatosk fused his core into her forehead, he became dependent on her. Should his core be removed before the right time, she will die. Unfortunately, those who wish to possess Ratatosk's core don't care if she dies or not.
No. You can try all you want but it will be useless. Lloyd is too strong. Even with the items you get from clearing the first "Tales of Symphonia", it isn't enough to take out Lloyd. No matter how much you hit him, his health does not go down.
Johnny Yong Bosch/Hiro Shimono. Cam Clarke and Fumihiko Tachiki both do the voice for Kratos, Christopher Corey Smith and Masaya Onosaka both perform the voice of Zelos, and Troy Baker does Regal. I made Yuki Suigiyama up.
Alba. Emil moved in with his Aunt Flora (his mother's sister) and his Uncle Alba. Alba is afraid of Emil and thus treats him the worst of anyone else in Luin. If you join the Richter sidequest, you will meet up with Alba again before the end of the game.
|One of the most famous lines in the game was said by Richter to Emil at the beginning. "Courage is the magic that turn dreams into reality." Who did Richter tell Emil taught him that?||Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World
"A human with a few screws loose.". I don't want to spoil this and tell you exactly who the "human" is, but this line became important to Emil. Whenever he needed courage or when he was feeling the most lousy, he would flashback to this quote and pull through.
Lightning. This is important if you are planning to make pacts with lightning-based monsters. In case you are having trouble with the pacts, look at the elemental chart on the instruction booklet.
Tower of Mana. Luin isn't that far away from the Tower of Mana. You exit with the switch behind Lloyd's poster and you come out of the Tower of Mana's basement. You see that the once-great Seal of Light (which takes forever to climb in the first game) is in ruins.
It depends. After you make a pact with the Imp and the Black Wolf, you are on your own with the monsters. You do gain other pacts that you have to make in order to complete the storyline. For example, you have to make a pact with Archelon in order to enter the Fire Temple.
Ratatosk. Marta chose him to become a knight of Ratatosk, the Lord of Monsters. When he accepted the pact, his clothes changed, he gained amazing amounts of power, he gained the ability to make pacts with monsters, and he brought his "other-self" to the surface.
Decus. This one is tricky. Emil met Marta in Palmacosta when she was being attacked by the Vanguard, but that was after the scene with Lloyd killing his parents. If you played further into the game, you learn that it wasn't the real Lloyd but Decus disgused as him. He never actually saw Lloyd (the real one) until the battle in Lake Shinoa Cave. He met Richter in Luin.
|In the prologue, Kratos tells the story of the Great Kharlan Tree, how the world was saved, and how bad things had gotten since the world was put back together. Who was it that he said planted a new World Tree?||Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World
The Chosen of Regeneration. Kratos said, "Many years later, the Chosen of Regeneration planted a new World Tree to take the place of the withered Giant Kharlan Tree". You can see the silhouettes of Colette, Martel, and Lloyd from the ending of the original "Tales of Symphonia".
Long. "Long ago, the Giant Kharlan Tree, the essence of balance and order in the world withered and died." Kratos opened the first "Tales of Symphonia" game with "Once upon a time..."
Richter doesn't have a Centurion. Centurion Aqua does travel with Richter, but he did not make a pact with her. Richter and Aster awakened Aqua during their journey to meet the Summon Spirit of the first World Tree, Ratatosk. Aqua turned her back on Ratatosk after he killed Aster. You fight her right before Richter in the Ginnungagap.
Darkness. You can find Emil's element the same way you do Richer's or any other character. Emil uses the darkness-element attack, Devil's Maw during a Unison Attack and the darkness-element attack, Devil's Hellfire, for a Mystic Arte. The thing that breaks the chain is the light-element Mystic Arte extension, Ain Soph Aur.
Water. This really isn't the most difficult question I've asked. The fact that he uses mostly water-based spells and recovers health when the dominant element on the grid is water should have given this question away. In addition, if you look in the top right-hand corner next to Richter's picture when you you press +, you'll see the elemental symbol for water.
Sword and Axe. Richter uses the axe, Sol, and the sword, Mani, in his fights. His attacks usually rely on the use of both, except during Richter's Mystic Arte.
Sol & Mani. A weapon set like Sol & Mani haven't been seen in any other "Tales of" games released in the US. During his Mystic Arte, Richter discards Sol and attacks with Mani, which makes for a particularly devastating attack.
Nether Traitor. The Nether Traitor is obtained from the Albrum Atrum fight in the Twilight Palace. The Albrum Atrum is this game's version of Abyssion, except he's got backup.
Ain Soph Aur. Ain Soph Aur is unlocked while retrieving Tenebrae's Core from the Temple of Darkness. Theoretically, the way to execute this is by pressing B right after the cut in of Emil during Devil's Hellfire.
Devil's Hellfire. Devil's Hellfire can be used when Emil reaches level 30 and has the skill "Special" equipped. It is executed by holding the B button after the use of an Arcane Arte.
Eternal Recurrence. Richter first uses this arte in the Temple of Darkness. In battle, it will return Emil's Mystic Arte extension at double the power. It's kind of like Asch's Rending Saber counter for Luke's Mystic Arte in "Tales of the Abyss".
Aster. Aster is Richter's friend who was killed by Ratatosk in the Ginnungagap. This is the reason why Aqua is working against Ratatosk and for Richter. The reason Richter called Emil this is because Emil looks like Aster.
He laughs. Richter surprises everyone be revealing that he has a sense of humor. He does cook, as stated in a skit, but that doesn't really surprise anyone.
Perfect Partner. Getting the good ending isn't as hard as it would seem. All you have to do is get all of the cores except for Lumen's. The title gives Emil a boost on every stat upon leveling up except for A. DEF and TP, and it gives Marta a boost on everything except P.DEF and HP.
Nazdrovie. Tenebrae tells the group that the light-frog is called the Nazdrovie. The scene goes like this:
someone says a sentence with light-frog in it.
someone else says a sentence with light-frog in it.
someone else says something about the light-frog.
someone else talks about the light frog.
Tenebrae: Fine I see how it is!
There's also a skit where just the opposite happens. Tenebrae say light-frog and everyone else says Nazdrovie.
The Vanguard. Alrighty, time to do a REALLY long-winded explanation. Lloyd didn't attack Palmacosta, it was Decus. He was using Solum's Core to shapeshift (you're not a ninja, Decus). The attack was all a ruse concocted by Brute to rally support for the Vanguard. Magnar attacks Luin in the name of the Church because the were "Harboring Marta." Anyway, Emil beats Magnar and all is fine again. Well it would've been, except Emil totally freaked everyone out by beating Magnar to a bloody, quivering pulp, so the mayor asked Emil to go look for Lloyd.
Three. Lloyd already has Lumen's core from the Lake Sinoa Cave. If you got the normal ending, Lloyd has taken Ignis' and Tonitrus' Cores from the Temple of Fire and the Temple of Lightning, respectively. In order to get Ignis' Core, DO NOT SWEAR ALLIGENCE TO LLOYD ON THE FIRST DAY! It will royally screw you over. To get Tonitrus' Core, don't get hit by the lightning fourteen times in the Temple of Lightning. I don't know why, but if you do get hit fourteen times, Lloyd will get there before you and steal it.
Yes. When Richter first calls Aqua out in the Lake Sinoa Cave, she calls Tenebrae spiteful, but not Tenebonehead. Every time afterward, however, she calls him "Spiteful Tenebonehead".
No. Aqua is trying to kill Ratatosk, so why would he make a pact to become a knight? Aqua just follows Richter around like a groupie, calling Tenebrae names whenever she sees him. Kind of rude, really.
Havoc Strike. Havoc Strike gains the fire element when you have Ignis equipped to Emil. Using it adds the fire element to the Elemental Grid. Ingis Havoc Strike is a good way to make pacts with monsters and set a monster up for a combo with an Arcane Arte.
Yes. While the strategy guide says it is impossible to beat him, you most certainly can. All you need is to be on your second playthrough and have the monsters you finished the game with. If the monsters are around level 75-100, you should be fine.
