it in when playing Golden Sun 2. Or, you can transfer all
your data using the game link to Golden Sun 2. In Golden
Sun 2, you will get all the items, levels, and Djinns.
Make sure you set your Dijiin the way you want before a battle.
If you know you are going to fight a lot of enemies, it would be
a good idea to have your Dijiin ready to summon. If you are going
to fight a small number of enemies you should not have it ready
Use your Dijiin according to the element the person using the Dijiin
excels at. Give Earth to Issac, Fire to Garet, Wind to Ivan, and
Water to Mia.
Use your Psyenergy wisely. You should not just use your Psyenergy at
any time, because you will quickly run out. You should only use it when
needed or when it will stop you from receiving considerable damage.
As you walk around in dungeons or on the world map, your character's
Psynergy will recover by one every six or seven steps.
Note: This does not work in towns.
Carry plenty of herbs in dungeons. Even a small task in a dungeon can
wipe you out. You will save more money by doing this than by having to
revive one of your team members. You will also always have all your
team members ready to fight.
Before you enter the portal in Sol Santum at the start of the game,
take all of Jenna's items and sell them.
When you get to Crossbone Isle, use Douse on the pink tornado and fight
him for lots of experience and money. Go into the cave and when you exit
it will be back. There are no monsters on the isle so you can just walk
around to restore Psyenergy.
Use the inns whenever needed. Inns are your best and cheapest source to
get healed quickly. Use them even for minor damage, or just to recover lost
Psyenergy. Inns are inexpensive and efficient.
When you get to the barricade look to the left to see a box taller than Isaac.
Use your Psyenergy to move it.
Once Issac is admitted into Colosso, if you lose any of the fights the
first time you try, Isaac will wake up and it will be just before you
began competing in Colosso. This only works the first time you fight in
Colosso; otherwise you lose permanently.
Keep close watch on Ivan's health. Ivan is the youngest of your group. He is
only 15, while the others are all 17. He will get hurt faster. Give him more
defensive equipment and less offensive equipment because he uses more Psyenergy
than direct attacks.
Use Reveal to find items
Use Reveal to find items that are in boxes, ovens, jars, graves, etc. instead
of wasting your time looking. Use Reveal near jars and other small storage
objects. If you see sparkles off the object, it means there is an item inside.
Use cursed objects
Obtain the Cleric Ring from Crossbone Isle. This ring is found in a chest and
will remove the "effects of a curse" allowing you to use the item and be able
Defeat the Manticores in the Suhalla Desert to receive the Aura Gloves that boost
Use Wind Djinni on the Grand Golems to kill them. Sometimes you will get a
Feathered Robe, but the odds of getting it is low. It is Mia's best armor.
Buy items from either Item Shops, Weapon Shops, or Armor Shops. You can get
about four Tickets from each Shop in each Town.
If you destroy an Earth Golem with a Wind Djinni, you will have a slight chance
of obtaining the Giant Axe. It is very rare, but your attack rises by +158 and it
To get Ivan's ultimate weapon, the Kikuichimonji, go to Venus Lighthouse and start
killing Finrirs. The Kikuichimonji drops rarely off of them. Just keep fighting and
killing them until that happens.
Use a Fire Djinn to kill a Fenrir, and you will have a better chance of getting the
Kikuichimonji. This does not automatically give you the sword, but increases the
chance of the monster dropping it.
Throughout the game, search gravestones. Usually you will find Lucky Medals.
To get Lucky Medals, search gravestones, boxes and barrels.
Defeat a lot of monsters in Venus Light House to get this item. It will increase
your attack power.
Defeat a great number of monsters in Venus Light House . This item is used to remove
poison from a party member.
Selling rare items
If you have rare Items, you can sell them to shops and they will be put under rarities.
If you want them back, you have to buy them. This is useful for good, but unusable
weapons (such as cursed objects).
If you have items that are rare are not used, sell them to a shop. Usually if they say
"This is rare stuff" in their offer to buy, when you sell it to them it will be put in
the artifacts section.
Buying rare items in last town
You can buy rare equipment that you did not sell. There are a lot of good weapons and
armor that you should buy, but they are expensive. Most of the items cost over 10,000.
Immediately before entering the portal to the elemental stars in Sol Sanctrum, take
all of Jenna's items and give them to Isaac or Garet. Note: You will never have another
chance to do this.
Getting various items with Lucky Medals or Game Tickets
When you receive a Lucky Medal or Game Ticket in the game, sell it to get it out of your
item pack until you reach the town of Tolbi. When you get there, you can buy back all of
your Lucky Medals and Game Tickets and use them only here in this town. When you are at
the fountain, you can throw coins or Lucky Medals. Try not to hit the two turtles or two
crabs. Try not to touch anything, and it should roll into the center of the circle. If you
tossed a coin, you will get 20 coins. If you threw a Lucky Medal, you will get a great
weapon that should be worth much more than the ones that you currently own. You could get
an Assassins Blade, Burning Axe, Earth Shield, Adept's Helm, Grievous Mace, or Spirit
If you play the Slot Machine that takes Game Tickets, you can win armor. The Moon is a
free symbol -- this means that if you line up at least one Shoe, Shirt, Ring, Star or
Heart and the rest are Moons, you will get the armor that matches up with the symbol; or
you can line up all of the armor. If you get a Shoe, you can get Hyper Boots, Quick Boots,
or Fur Boots. If you get a Shirt, you can get the Cotton Shirt or the Running Shirt.
If you get a Ring, you can get the War Ring or Sleep Ring. If you get a Star, you will
get a Psynergy Crystal. If you get a Heart, you will get a Potion, Vial, Nut, or Herb.
On the slot machine you can win Hyper Boots. They boost critical hits, which is very
useful during the rest of the game.
If you buy items get Game Tickets, you can sell them back and still have the Game Tickets.
Repeatedly buy items and sell them back to get lots of Game Tickets. The farther in the game
you get, the more money you have to spend to get the tickets.
By throwing Lucky Medals in the fountain, you can also get Kimano, which boosts agility and
Venus Lighthouse items
Keep killing the monsters at the Venus Lighthouse. They may eventually drop Celestial
Wand that unleashes Shining Star. You may also get a Blessed Mace which heals 200 HP when
used. Neither of these are extremely strong, but are useful. Shining Star usually gives
the enemy Delusion.
Venus Lighthouse entrance
Use "Reveal" on the painted wall in the beginning. It will lay a "scholar" near the wall.
The "Carry Stone" will be in there.
If you enter a new town, always buy the cheap weapons first. Even though they may not seem
strong, they are good enough to help you get to the next town, village, cave, etc. This is
a good way to not spend as much money.
Note: You may want to buy the more expensive items first so you get game tickets. Also, by
the time you get to the next weapon shop, you will be fighting stronger monsters for more
Warp back to Sahulla
Use the following trick to warp back to Sahulla when one of the Tornado Lizard's storms
catch you. Use any Psyenergy move besides the ones that heal you or douse. The storm will
fly up in the air and land near by Sahulla.
Get to Lunpa
After you defeat the Collosus event in Tolbi and have the discussion with Lord Babi, go into
the room that Babi entered. You will find a bedded Babi, and the Cloak Ball. Tell Babi that
is what you want to "Borrow" (he will not ask for it back). He will "lend" it to you. Go back
to Lunpa through the cave on its left by using Frost on the puddle below the door. Go to the
frame with the two guards in it. Go to the far left side and use Cloak. Stay in the shadows
or the guards will see you. Save your game frequently. When you reach locked doors with
bushes beside them, use Whirlwind and then Reveal. When you reach a barred entrance with a
key in front of you, use Catch. After you have defeated TOADonpa, go to the room with the
women guarding a small cave entrance. Donpa will command her to step aside. In the room you
will get Tonic, a water Djinni. Once back outside the cave, you can use Reveal on the rock in
front of the entrance to the two guard frame. Use Frost on the puddle !that appears and go
across it. When you reach the end of the path/cliff, use Reveal again and press A on the
sparkle. You will get some treasure. Make sure to stock up on the items that you can get in the
After you return from fighting Dead Beard on Cross Bone Isle. Use the Red Tornado to warp
to Suhulla. Then, go back to the desert and the Red Tornado should be back. This time use
Douse and instead of a Tornado Lizard, the Tempest Lizard will appear.
Cast the water Psynergy "Douse" in the snowy northern town of Imil. The game does not show
the usual dousing water spell. Instead, it shows frozen snowflakes falling from the sky.
Hint: Getting to Crossbone Isle
There are two ways to get to Cross Bone Isle, the island of treasures. On your journey
across the Karogal Lake, select the following rowers in order to drift off course and end
up at Crossbone Isle: Punk with Long Hair, Balding Man, Chef, and the Old Man. However, you
will not be able to go all the way through the island's cave yet -- return later by getting
there the second way. For the second way, there is a Pink Tornado deep within The Suhalla
Desert. Use Reveal near the Pharaoh's head to find footprints. Follow the foot prints.
They will lead you to a cave which will get you to the Pink Tornado. Get in the Pink Tornado
and do not do anything. The tornado will take you to Crossbone Isle. Psynergy needed: Cloak,
Carry, Catch, Frost Reveal, Move and Halt. Note: Every door in the cave has a different Boss
guarding it. Defeat each one to progress into the cave. Deep in the cave is a pirate ship.
A dead Pirate named Dead Beard is guarding the Treasure, and he is the toughest Boss in the
Hint: Mercury Lighthouse
To finish Mercury Lighthouse, you must have Mia on your team. To get to the top of the
lighthouse stand in the hands of the goddess and use Mia's Ply. This allows you to walk on
water on selected squares. Once you have completed the puzzles, you will fight Satarous.
Hint: Defeating Dead Beard
Go to Crossbone Isle, and go all the way through until you find a pirate ship. Go onto
the pirate ship. Go to the north side of the ship, towards the treasure ship. You will run
into a huge Dead Pirate named Dead Beard. Dead Beard is more difficult than the Fusion Dragon
you fight at the end of the game. It is highly recommended that you are at level 30 before you
fight him, After you defeat him, take the treasure. The other treasure chest near the sail is
Deadbeard is weak against Earth and has 10,000 HP. You will get 10n400 experience and 14000
coins if he is defeated with an Earth Djinni.
Hint: Defeating the Fusion Dragon
The Fusion Dragon is weak against water and has 5200 to 5300 HP.
Attack with regular attacks, except for Mia. Mia should use the Psyenergy Wish Well to heal
the group. When she runs low on Psyenergy, use an Energy Star. Repeat this strategy. If you
feel lucky, use Bind with Ivan to bind the Fusion Dragon's Psyenergy.
Use the Djinn Flash, whether its setting him or using with Garret. Use Ragnorok with Isaac
(Robin). Use the best attack you have with Ivan and use Wish Well with Mia.
Hint: Defeating Menardi
Menardi is weak against Water and has 3,000 HP.
Hint: Defeating Saturos and Menardi permanently
Begin with all Djinn sets. Defensive ones are very helpful. Saturos and Menardi have 3000 HP,
260 EP, and 3000 EXP.
Start with all Djinn on set and call them out one at a time. Defensive Djinn such as Granite
and Flash are very effective. Trade Mia's Water Djinn, Sleet, Mist, Hail with Garet's ineffective
Fire Djinn. Have Mia use Wish Well every turn and save the spirits for Fusion Dragon.
After defeating Saturos and Menardi, they will turn into a two-headed creature that will not stand
a chance to spirit's such as Boreas, Judgement, and Thor.
Hint: Defeating Saturos in the Mercury Tower
Since Saturos is a fire adept, use Mia's two Dijnii frequently. Also, watch Ivan and
Hint: Defeating Saturos
Saturos is weak against Water and has 3,000 HP
At the beginning of the game, there will be a time where you face Menardi and Saturos. Grow at
least 2 levels. Make sure you only attack Saturos, and Menardi will flee after a long, boring
battle. Defeat Saturos and he will join your party. Saturos will be level 115, and he will be
stronger than ever.
Hint: Defeating the thieves
To defeat the thieves in Vault, use your Djnii and Psynergy frequently. Have herbs, etc. handy
before the battle. Keep an eye on Ivan's HP.
Hint: Easy experience and gold
Walk outside towns and battle monsters, but do not wander too far away. Use Herbs, Nuts, or
anything else that cures your characters. When you run out of magic to heal or need to buy
more Herbs, return to town. Go inside the inn or item shop and get cured. Note: You may want
to do both. All the gold that you received from battle goes towards curing yourself, but is
worth it since you will gain levels faster. Repeat those steps until reaching the desired level.
Note: You may want to repeat this trick when you see a change of monsters levels.
When you run into a battle with any kind of Bee or Zombie monster, defeat all monsters but
the Bees or Zombies. Then, just choose "Defend" until your screen is full with multiples of
the same monster. The "Monster looks for allies" message will appear, then another of the
same creature will appear. Once you get a maximum of six monsters on the screen, you can finish
them off; or you can kill some and let the survivors multiply once again. Continue this process
to get as many coins and as much experience as desired.
Hint: Easy experience
Go to an area with Drone Bees, such as Lamakan Desert. Get into a battle that includes Drone
Bees. Kill all the enemies except for the Drone Bees. Keep defending until the enemies look
for allies and there are about six enemies on the screen. Start killing them one by one.
When you are deciding who to attack, have all your characters attack the same bee or you can
have two characters attacking two different bees. Kill the bees one by one or two by two and
they will keep coming back. If you are fast enough, you can gain easy experience. Basically
all you have to do is keep pressing A when you have six bees on the screen.
If you are in Venus Lighthouse and need to gain experience or just fill up, go to the room
just before the sand waterfalls with the Psynergy Stone. Use all magic that you need to use.
Then, take the Psynergy Stone. You should be all filled up. Go up the stairs to the left and
back down. The Psynergy Stone should be there again. Repeat this as many as times as needed.
Go to the area outside of Kalay. If you get into fights with Undeads, attack each one with one
character only once. Then, wait for only one to be on screen. Wait for it to call for an ally.
Attack the ally with only one regular attack,and kill the original with a Fire Djinn. Repeat
this as many times as needed for easy experience. Note: This trick also works on Warrior Bees,
which are outside Lalivero
On Crossbone Island use Douse on the pink tornado to fight a tough tornado monster for at least
1,000 experience points and 6,000 gold. Walk around to gain PP. Go in the cave entrance, then
exit to make the tornado reappear. Repeat this as many times as desired.
When you get to Fusion Dragon, lose to it then heal yourself and lose to it again. The levels
you gain from your battle before Fusion Dragon will grow. Repeat until your level is as high
Go to where the Tempest Lizard is located in the Sahulla Desert. Take the Tornado to Crossbone
Isle. When you arrive, put all Earth, all Fire, and four Wind Djinni on standby and enter the
Tornado. Select Psyenergy and use Douse. Defeat it, enter the area with the cave, and repeat
this as many times as desired. You will get over 1,000 experience points every time.
When you are in a battle with monsters, you have about an 85% chance of escaping if you select
"Flee" immediately. This helps if you are on a mission.
