The door enemies for this floor are two Chimeras, which are three-headed lion
type creatures. As always, unleash all of the summons on them in the first
round. One of them will probably die to four Level-4 summons, with the other
being badly damaged. Ragnarok with Isaac, Attack with Garet, Defend with Ivan
and use Ply Well with Mia to get this guy. If you have a Level-3 Summon
available at this point (by having 7 Djinn) use it and you'll almost certainly
wipe out the last Chimera. When you defeat him you'll get a potion and advance
through the next door.
Location: North-northeast of the door.
Directions: Move stumps that you see when you enter the door so that 1 is all
the way to the left and another is one from the right. Hop across the stumps
to get the treasure chest to the north.
Location: Northwest corner of the screen (initially)
Directions: From Chest 1, head north until you get to the north wall. Head
down the ladder and then up the ladder to the west. Keep going west along the
northern ledge until you get near the Djinn. He'll run away, and you'll have
to keep going around the corner until you get to a movable stump with a crevice
on the side of the ledge. Push the stump down the crevice, then go down the
crevice yourself. Head down the ladder and freeze the puddle a little east of
the ladder. Head back up the ladder and jump across the pillars and go north
along this ledge. Here you will find Chest 2. Keep going north and the Djinn
will flee. Push the stump to the right and go up the ladder. Go east to find
the Djinn in the northeast corner. He'll flee once more, and you should go
down the large ladder and up the smaller one. Head south, then jump across the
two stumps you had moved earlier and go up the ladder. Go directly south of
the Djinn (there will be a block in your way) and use Halt on it. You can now
go up to it and get the Venus Djinn Bane! Jeez, that was pretty complicated.
Location: Go up the northern ledge towards the second location of the Djinn
(see Djinn step.)
Item: 666 coins (how evil)
Directions: See Djinn Directions.
CHEST 3: (Get the Djinn before doing this, but don't go out of the door)
Location: The middle of the screen on top of a stump.
Item: Demon Axe
Directions: Go to the middle of the screen without climbing up any ladders and
push the stump with the chest on top of it as far north as it will go (make
sure it's still in the center.) Now, head back south and go up the ladder on
the east. Hop across the two stumps you had moved earlier and start heading
north. When you get to a small ladder, head down it and go up the large ladder
to the west of it. Go west past the large ladder until you get to a small
ladder. Go down this ladder and push the stump to the east. Climb down the
ladder and Move the log all of the way to the east. Go back up the two smaller
ladders and then go down the large ladder. Hop from the stump onto the ledge
in the middle and get the Chest.
Location: Middle-southern part of the screen.
Item: Water of Life
Directions: From Chest 3, head back to the stump and up the large ladder.
Then, go down one small ladder but not the other and start heading south. Keep
going until you reach the Ice Pillar that you freezed, and hop across that to
the stump and then down the ladder. Now, move the stump all of the way to the
east. However, before moving it into its final position north, you'll have to
get north of it and use Move Psynergy so that you don't get trapped behind it.
Head back up north and go up the small ladder. Then, head south and jump from
the ice pillar to the stump to the next platform. The treasure chest is right
on top of here.
To get out to the level (these directions are from after getting Chest 4) head
back across the two pillars and start going north. Head down the small ladder
when you get to it and go south until you reach the stump that you had moved to
get Chest 4. Use Move Psynergy to move this south and then west. Keep heading
south to find your way out of the door.
At the door this time will be two Earth Lizards. This time, for a change, try
activating all of your Djinn to have your stats boosted up a *ton*. Use
Ragnarok with Isaac, Attack and Impair with Garet, Plasma and High Impact with
Garet and Wish Well with Mia. It will take a lot longer but there's less risk
of a character going down thanks to more health and more defense. When you
eventually defeat them you'll get some Water of Life and access to the next
Location: Northeast part of the screen.
Item: Lucky Medal.
Directions: Head northeast along the hallway and across the gap to the west
when you get to it. Keep going west until you reach a small block that you'll
have to move all the way to the right and then all of the way north. Now, use
the Carry Psynergy that you got in Venus Lighthouse to place to block 1 square
north on the ledge. Now, climb up the ladder and keep going east until you
reach the chest.
Notes: Head out of the room before attempting Chest 2.
Location: North-center part of the screen up on a large single platform.
Item: Psy Crystal
Directions: Head back to where that small block was when obtaining Chest 1.
This time, move the block all of the way to the left without changing its
vertical position, and use Carry on it to bring it up the ledge to the left.
Now, jump the gap and head up the ladder and down the one to the east of it.
Move the block one square to the north and use Carry on it to move it up to the
ledge above. Head back up the ladder and jump to the pillar you just made to
get the chest.
Notes: Head out of the room before attempting Chest 3.
Location: Almost dead center portion of the screen.
Item: Wicked Mace
Directions: Head back to where that small block was
in getting the previous chests. Move it west just like you did in getting
Chest 2 and Carry it onto the ledge. Hop the gap and go up the large ladder
and then down the small one. Move the block all of the way to the left of the
platform and push it off. Now, move the block so that it is 2 squares to the
left of the bottom most square of the ledge. Now, go up the large ladder and
down the small one and jump across the small pillar to the platform against the
west wall. Head southeast on this platform to get the chest.
Location: East of the exit door.
Item: 777 Coins
Directions: Thanks to Peter Mentink for this information: It's real easy, you
can just jump on the ledge where the chest is (jump below the chest).The square
you jump to is only not visible because off the walls!
From Chest 3 head back across the gap and up and then down the large ladder.
Jump across the gap and start heading south at the narrow passageway. Hop to
the west when you come to the end of this platform to find another small block.
Move this down as far as it will go and then all of the way to the left. Use
Carry to place this block on the ledge to the north of it, then climb up the
ladder and hop across the gap. Head down the ladder to the west and go south
to go out of the door.
The next group of enemies are a Poison Toad, and two Thunder Lizards. These
guys are pretty tough because they have the ability to stun your entire party
which wont' allow them to attack. I'd go into this with 4 of each type of
Djinn on standby with the rest of the active. This is a compromise between
stats and having Summons (although you may want to keep all of Mia's Djinn
active for Wish Well). Three Level-4 summons will take care of the Thunder
Lizards, leaving only the Poison Toad. Here you will probably want to use
status changing Djinn that will paralyze or put Poison Toad to sleep. Once
he's injured, blast the hell out of it with regular attacks to defat it. On
defeating the group you'll earn some Water of Life. If you're running low on
PP, instead of wasting Psy Crystals, just run around for a while to restore PP
(you don't have to worry about random battles.)
Location: Northeast part of the screen.
Item: Smoke Bomb.
Directions: Head north along the hallway until you reach a white platform with
a puddle of water underneath it. Freeze this puddle and head north up the
ladder. Once you're up on the cliff, head south to get the chest.
Location: North-Center part of the screen. This chest is the top one.
Item: 888 coins.
Directions: From Chest 1 head down the ladder and freeze the puddle in your
way. Now, head back north and up the ladder. Cross the gap to be right next
to this chest.
Notes: Head out of the room before attempting Chest 3.
Location: Directly below Chest 2.
Item: Cleric's Ring
Directions: Make your way to Chest 2, freezing the puddle south of the ladder
leading up to the cliff on the east. Do *not* freeze the puddle under the
platform or you'll have to start over. From Chest 2, slide down the crevice on
the side of the mountain and make your way around the logs so that you can now
push the small black rock east. Do so, then head up the ladder northwest of it
and back across the gap towards the dragon. Head down the crevice, push the
horizontal log down, and freeze the puddle under the white platform. This will
now have the dragon burn down the ice pillar in your way to the ladder to the
north, so hop across the puddle and refreeze it when you're north of it. Head
up the ladder and across the gap. Head down the crevice on this cliff and push
the horizontal log down. You can now get up the ladder and get the chest.
Location: Along the northwest wall.
Directions: From Chest 3, head down the ladder and head northwest. Hop over
the puddle, then freeze it and go up the ladder. Jump across the ice pillar to
the cliff to get the item.
After you get the 4th Chest, head down the crevice and go out of the room via
the door to the south.
The door enemies for this floor are two Cerebuses. Go into the battle with 4
inactive Djinn for Isaac, Garet and Ivan and all of the Djinn active for Mia.
Cast all of the summons for Isaac, Garet and Ivan in the first round. Have Mia
use Wish or Wish Well throughout the battle. Once the summons have been cast,
have Isaac start to use Ragnarok, have Garet use the Djinni Flash or re-summon
Flash, and have Ivan use High-Impact then Plasma in the following rounds.
Defeat them to get a handy Psy Crystal.
Location: East-center part of the screen in the middle of the lake.
Item: 999 Coins
Directions: Head north to get to the lake with many logs to cross. Take the
horizontal log to the west of the lake up north. Now, take the vertical log
right above it to the east. Head off onto the eastern ledge and head south.
Take the horizontal log here up north, then hop east to the double vertical
logs. Head down to the south and take the vertical log in the southeastern
corner of the lake west to reach the island in the center.
Notes: Head out of the room before attempting to get the next Chest.
Location: Northwestern part of the lake.
Item: Sleep bomb.
Directions: Head up the eastern ledge of the lake and take the northern most
vertical log west. Hop north to get the treasure chest.
Notes: Head out the room before attempting to get the next chest.
Location: Middle of the room in between the two lakes.
Item: Water of Life
Directions: Take the western most horizontal log in the first lake you come to
north, then take the vertical log above it east. Head onto the cliff on the
east and head south. Bring the horizontal log here north, then hop east to the
vertical log. Move that west, then hop south to the vertical log below it.
Head all of the way to the west to reach the platform with this treasure chest
Location: Northwest past of the screen.
Item: Muramasa (a sword)
Directions: From Chest 3, head southwest. Take all of the horizontal logs
north. Now, go and take the lowest vertical log west, and then take the
horizontal log above it south. Go back and take the middle Vertical log west,
then take the horizontal log above that south. Go all the way back from whence
you came (13) and take the final vertical log at the northern part of the
screen west. Jump up north to get the item.
From Chest 4, simply take the vertical log back east and head south down the
ledge to find the exit door.
When you get to floor ten, you'll be thrilled to know that there are no longer
anymore puzzles to solve. However, you're about to face one mother of a boss.
Save your game, inactivate 4 Djinn for everyone but Mia, and make sure
everyone's healed. It's time for the battle of your life (you meaning Isaac
and company.) Head west up the dock to find a treasure chest. This chest is
actually a mimic that you may want to fight for the experience. Now, head up
the deck the ship (to the north) to encounter Deathbeard in a random battle.
If you're around level 25-26 and have at least 6 Djinn for each character (If
you've been following this walkthrough you should by now), then Deathbeard
shouldn't be that difficult of an enemy. In the first round, Cast your three
Level-4 summons on him, and have Mia use Wish Well on the whole party. Once
the first round is done, start using Ragnarok with Isaac. With Garet you'll
want to use the Djinn Flash *each* turn whether you're casting him or setting
him to be active again. This will provide a heat barrier that frees your party
from almost all damage that Deathbeard dishes out. With Ivan, use his Impact
spell on Isaac (you'll pretty much use this throughout the whole match because
Deathbeard will occasionally use Break which will decrease all of your party
member's stats down to normal.) With Mia use Ply Well throughout the battle to
keep healing stats. Whenever someone's PP starts to get down, use a Psy
Crystal on him or her (you'll only had to use about 2 or 3 throughout the whole
match...when Ivan's PP starts to get low don't worry about it, just have him
defend or use his Djinn.) Try to time using Psy Crystals to when you're being
defended by a Flash heat barrier. Also, whenever a character goes down, wait
until you're under a Flash heat barrier to revive that character with Isaac's
revive. While this strategy is pretty boring, you should be able to defeat
Deathbeard in about 10 minutes. This strategy works because you'll have a lot
of HP, PP and defense thanks to having lots of Djinn active. When you finally
defeat Deathbeard you will get 8,000 experience points, 9,000 coins and some
Water of Life. You'll also be able to get the treasure chest at the very north
part of the ship. This box contains the Demon Mail that's unfortunately
Congratulations! You're now done Crossbone Island! Save your game and use
Retreat to head out of the cave. Head back northwest towards the pink tornado
to arrive back at Suhulla. Head all of the way back to Babi's tower where you
want to go through the entrance there. Also, you will probably want to take a
rest in the inn at Lalivero before you enter the tower.
