Title: Ixis' Treasure Hunter's FAQ
Post by: Ixis on December 10, 2007, 12:57:03 AM
Only rule: No spoilers please, avoid them if you can!



~~~***~~~***~~~***~~~
Hidden Memories

-The first hidden memory is in Mithalas, on the second map before entering the Cathedral, in a house on the central-east side of town.
- The second is at the very top of the Sun Temple. In the map area before the boss room, follow the unkillable moving robots to a room with a gear. Spin to raise the water level and take the northwest hallway all the way up until the water ends, then wall jump to the top. Jump from one gear to another to reach the other side, then either using the nature form plant jump, or the beast form jump, bounce between the two lower center cogs, and up the other cogs until you reach a floating water ball by a northeastern hall exit. Take this up and wall jump the testube outside of the Sun temple to the top and collect the second hidden memory.
- The last one is in the eastern section of the Abyss. Travel to the whale and sing him a song to enter his mouth (the song is circle, swirl, heart leaf… If my notes are correct.) Once inside the whale head to the back and an octopus will sing to you. Carefully listen to his song and then head back out to the main area inside the whale. Use the Sun Form to light up the lamps in the area. The order is east, north-west, south-west, center. Once you’ve successfully completed the puzzle go back to the octopus room and use the Bind spell to pick up the pearl. Carry the pearl out of the whale, past the geysers, and into the central alcove in the map area. Place the pearl in the pearl slot, charge it, and enter for the memory.
Don Andy, Ixis and diablospawn



~~~***~~~***~~~***~~~
Health Egg Upgrades
Info from Mull and Ixis

- The first one is hidden under the first rock you can move with the Bind spell in the song cave.
- In the belly of the whale.
- In the area between Open Waters and the Kelp Forest on the west side (the map that has a large number of cuttlefish spawns.) In the middle-ish area is a thin fish route connected to a sunken ship. At the end is a green health egg.
- In the Kelp Forest area before the boss. Use Nature form and open the flowers in the lower-right part of the area to reveal pearls, move a pearl up -right through a passage to the stand. Energize it and follow through the passage to get to the egg
- The last egg is in the second Frozen Veil area. Make your way to the northeast corner and use beast form or beast form + hot soup to reach two outcropping crystals. Then jump the rest of the way to the northeast cavern entrance. Follow the series of floating water-balls all the way to the top where you’ll fight a giant crab. This boss can be tricky, but essentially you’ll want to bind one of his bombs, switch to nature form (hotkey 4), then plant a large tree underneath him so he drops, then unbind the bomb and get the hell away from him. Do this three or four times until he’s defeated.


~~~***~~~***~~~***~~~
Pets

-Nautilus: Found south west of Naija's home, guarded by a giant Nautilus and it's children. Use the energy form to shoot it's tentacle spot.

-Piranha: Found in the kelp forest, the very northeastern part of it in Mermagon Cave(?). You must have beast form and fish form to reach it. The boss is a frog-like creature sitting atop a stone head. (Thanks to Laharah and lukich!)

-Dumbo Octopus: Much better than the name suggests! In The Veil, near the sun temple, head right down to the bottom to a crack and use fish form to go through. Continue on through the small cave system past a bunch of enemies (you'll need light form!). Battle the boss and you get a nice wee glowing octopus. Handy if you want to use other forms from light in the dark, pointless anywhere else! (Thanks to Lambchops!)

-Blaster Crab: Go to the Energy Temple with the nature form and use the path blocked by current with the beast form to get to the lower level. Go to the flower and use the nature form to get the pearl. Bring the pearl west and north to a previously locked door. Put the pearl in place, energize it, and enter the chamber, defeat the enemies and collect the last pet! (Provided by Mull.)

-When worn, seahorses that you are riding move faster
Found: Complete the timed event in under 1m 30s in the Arnassi ruin area.  You can start it by playing the four runes on the wall. Big hint for finishing it within time: Time spent in Spirit form does not count against the race timer.
Shadow

-Odd Container
-"The bubbles trapped inside this container amused me."
-None known
Found: In the Kelp Forest, on the same map with the small separated section (where you get the 3rd cooking slot in), you have to swim to the left of that section (note that you have to be in the actual Kelp Forest and NOT in the separated section, it's hard to describe) and then swim along the wall until you find a hidden cave with a wrecked ship in it.

Do that, and you'll find a -Mithalas plushie at the end. Since Mithalas doesn't have that many houses you can enter, it should be easy to find.
Don Andy

Mull

Found: In the cathedral there will be one section that you couldn't get in before you get beast form due to the current (if you've explored everywhere else it will be easy to see where it is on the map). Head there, use beast form to get past the current and there's your costume.
Lambchop and Mull

Mull

-Golden Starfish
-"A special starfish infused with the sun's power

Found: Not exactly sure, I think it was in the veil. It resembles the starfish in the background so it can be quite hard to spot. The bottom right corner of the veil.
Mull and Zabycx

-Anemone Seed
-<UNKNOWN>
Found: In a tiny cave passageway above the giant anemone that is situated at the top of the room directly west of the save crystal in the Song Cave. Turn into Nature Form to swim past the giant anemone without it hurting you.  Continue swimming upward against the weak current to get to it.

Swim north until you see a small cave with a big fish lurking in it (on the right side), switch into Fish form and swim past the big fish.
Switch to Sun form and follow the small passage behind the fish (avoid the thorns) and collect the Black Pearl at the end of the passage.
Xaith and Shadow

-Third Cooking Slot (outside of kitchen)
Found: Find the hidden passage in the dark area of the arnassi ruins. Hint, you need fish form to get through it.

Info:<UNKNOWN>
Don Andy and Shadow

Miscellaneous

-Riding Seahorses
You can ride any seahorse by right-clicking on them. Naija will move close to them and finally mount one. Use the right-mouse singing button to control them. They won’t stay with you from map to map.

-Beast Form Health
You can regain lost health by running through schools of fish with the dash in the beast form.

-Wall Grabbing Boss Tactics
To avoid getting sucked in by various bosses, dash at walls. Naija will hold onto them and won’t get swept away by the current.

-Bind and Other Forms
While binding a rock or other item Naija can switch forms and she will still be attracting the bound item.

-Miniboss rides
Naija can ride on the backs of certain minibosses. This has no apparent added affect however.

-Green Metal Bulbs
Throw flowers at them in Nature form to teleport.

-Hidden Sun Temple Room
In Naija’s house, at the very bottom is a strong current you cannot pass until you have the beast form. Going south and then west will take you to a hidden room resembling the Sun Temple. Other uses are unknown so far. There is also another room to the southeast.

-Li
Li is located in the northeastern part of the Veil. Swim near the surface until you find a man in a blue diver’s suit. Follow him closely until he leads you to an underwater cave. Get closer to him when he’s cornered and use the bind spell to remove his helmet.

-Leech Regeneration
In some places (house in Mithalas, cave behind a fish in the Kelp forest, bubble in the frozen veil) are little tadpoles(?). If you don't shoot them and sing, they will clung to your body and permanent regenerate you as long as you are on this map.

Pets:

I've already forgotten where I found the Piranha!

Dumbo Octopus - much better than the name suggests! In The Veil, near the sun temple, head right down to the bottom to a crack and use fish form to go through. Continue on through the small cave system past a bunch of enemies (you'll need light form!). Battle the boss and you get a nice wee glowing octopus. Handy if you want to use other forms from light in the dark, pointless anywhere else!

Treasure:

Ceremonial costume - in the cathedral there will be one section which you couldn't get in before you get beast form due to the current (if you've explored everywhere else it will be easy to see where it is on the map). Head there, use beast form to get past the current and there's your costume.

Parahana Pet- in the kelp forrest, the very north eastern part of it (must have beast form and fish form). there's an awkward looking boss on a totem that bites.


Title: Re: Ixis' Treasure Hunter's FAQ
Post by: lukich on December 10, 2007, 01:23:19 AM
The place you find the piranha is called Mermagon Cave (I think)...  The boss looks like a frog sitting on a stone head, and he bounces all over the place.


Title: Re: Ixis' Treasure Hunter's FAQ
Post by: Mull on December 10, 2007, 01:34:27 AM
The final pet (can't recall the name, even though it was the one I used for most of the game) is in Energy Temple, just past where you fought the boss. You'll need nature form to get it - Go to the tunnel that leads back to the beginning of the temple, and open the flower to reveal a pearl. Move the pearl left and up to the empty stand and open the door to enter a chamber with some enemies, defeat them for the egg.

... Also, shouldn't you list where the energy upgrade eggs are?
- Bottom of the cave just after you get Bind
- Belly of the whale
- Kelp Forest, area before the boss. Use the Nature form and open the flowers in the lower-right part of the area to reveal pearls, move a pearl up -right through a passage to the stand. energize it and follow through the passage to get to the egg
- Frozen Veil. Go into the cave either by moving through the water bubbles from the left or by jumping directly from the surface, then navigate to the top of the cave. Defeat the boss (bind bombs and use charged nature shots to lower crab)

Treasures:

PERMANENT THIRD COOKING SLOT (As in, you no longer need a kitchen):
Find the hidden passage in the dark area of the arnassi ruins. Hint, you need fish form to get through it.

Arnassi Armor: Complete the timed event in under 1m 30s in the Arnassi ruin area.  You can start it by playing the four runes on the wall. Big hint for finishing it within time: Time spent in Spirit form does not count against the race timer.

Arnassi Statue: Hidden in dark area of the Arnassi ruins.

Glowing Plant: Hidden in a secret area in the western side of the abyss. Hint: Watch the minimap for the hidden passage.

Odd Container: Found the Kelp Forest, it's in a dark area near the boss spot. EDIT: Not really accurate, I can't remember exactly where I got it, just that it was in a dark area of the Kelp Forest.

Walker Baby: Also hidden in the Kelp Forest, find the dark area and watch the minimap in the area with the ancient turtle.

Jelly Egg: Bottom of the shaft just before the Kelp Forest boss. The one with all current and all the upside down plant things.

Black Pearl: Hidden in a dark area northwest of the ... uh ... sea ... sprite ... cave ... place. Can't remember what they're called. :( Go past the big ugly monster in the small cave to get to it.

Glowing Seed: Hidden in the far western Area of The Abyss, pretty much impossible to miss if you fully explore the map.

Still looking around for the three treasures I am missing.

You sure on the location of that "Third Cooking Slot"?  I looked all over the dark area of Arnassi, nothing.  Are you talking about the area with the Turtle?

Ride the turtle. It works independent from the other turtles and brings you to a small section in the Kelp Forest, where a "Simon sez" creature floats around.

Treasure:

Bag of Seeds

Go the the mini-nymphs' home in the kelp forest after obtaining nature form.  There is a plant passageway that will lead you to a garden full of leaves to pull, and also the treasure.

Effect: Gives you a garden full of leaves to pull in your home.

Yep! I've found one in Mithalas. I'll include any others and add it to the list.

EDIT: fieari's is the last addition I'll make for tonight before I turn in (and by that I mean stay up all night and beat Kelp Forest.)

Make that another one at the very, very top of the Sun Temple. You have to jump out of the water shortly before the boss room and wall-jump your way up to a room with several cogwheels and continue jumping with the help of these cogwheels until you reach a water bubble.
The last one is somewhere in the Abyss, but I can't recall where exactly (I think it's passage you need the pearl from the whale for though)


Title: Re: Ixis' Treasure Hunter's FAQ
Post by: diablospawn on December 10, 2007, 07:00:15 AM
I think we should list hidden memories while we are at it... off the top of my head i can think of 3...
spoiler below:
















kitchen in mithalas
top of the veil
pearl in the abyss...


Title: Re: Ixis' Treasure Hunter's FAQ
Post by: diablospawn on December 10, 2007, 08:25:43 AM
hey guys if you get all 3 memories you get a new ending, thought id let you know...


Title: Re: Ixis' Treasure Hunter's FAQ
Post by: Don Andy on December 10, 2007, 10:16:01 AM
Treasure Chest (could be the "Odd Container" in your list):
In the Kelp Forest, on the same map with the small seperated section (where you get the 3rd cooking slot in), you have to swim to the left of that section (note that you have to be in the actual Kelp Forest and NOT in the seperated section, it's hard to describe) and then swim along the wall until you find a hidden cave with a wrecked ship in it. There you'll find a treasure chest.

Hilt of the Prince's Weapon:
Right after you got the Spirit form, swim down and then left past the hot streams.

Also, the Crab Armor gives increased defense. At least that's what Naija says.


Oh, and another one.
Mithalas Doll:
I can't exactly recall where, but I think close to the entrance of Mithalas (the city),  you can enter a house that has nothing but a small passage that you can only pass in fish form. Do that, and you'll find a Mithalas plushie at the end. Since Mithalas doesn't have that many houses you can enter, it should be easy to find.

And yet another piece of info:
If you don't get the Arcane Poultice through the yellow fish thingy, there are about 4 in the last dungeon.

I am pretty sure there are more power expansion eggs, I just can't remember where I found them...

... The final pet is called the "Blaster Crab", though.

The legendary cake(sorry RvLeshrac) and the Rukh Egg are in the east part of the veil, on each of the high points on the east and west edges. Use a hot soup to gain speed and jump up the waterfall in the west part, swim through the cave in the east part and wall-jump to the top (not the cave halfway) to reach the Rukh nest - kill the bird to get the egg.

Girl's Costume - It's on the bed in the sunken city. Possibly the only room you don't have to visit so it should be easy to find.

Mutant Costume - In the Body, in the gauntlet just before the final savepoint. About halfway through, there's a small passage hidden in a wall covered with thorns - look at the map to see where it is.

Jelly Costume - defeat the Jelly King in the west part of the abyss

Golden Starfish - Not exactly sure, I think it was in the veil. It resembles the starfish in the background so it can be quite hard to spot

Stone Head - Not sure about this one either, but I think I saw it in the veil or somewhere in open water. It is a small rock slab with a face on it, resting somewhere on the ground

Hey Ixis, I wrote up a little text file with the names, tooltip's, and effects of all the treasure's I have (I have all the one's in this thread, but no more).  No locations though, that would take too long to write up :D.  Just to help clean up the first post a little and get rid of all those frowns.

Re: The Rukh/Roc egg, there's a second Rukh in the turtle cave, even farther above the Spiny armor, to the upper right. It's extremely hard to get into a position where you can actually catch the egg though.

Ah, yeah. The frowny faces are three question marks in a row, but for some reason it shows up as a face. I'll change them to "unknown" next time I update it (which'll be right now ^_^ )

Hey fellow treasure hunters !
I seemed to have found one that nobody has found yet !
Here's the info...

Anemone Seed

effect:
a group of anemones will appear in a spot right under the kitchen

location:
in a tiny cave passageway above the giant anemone that is situated at the top of the room directly west of the save crystal in the Song Cave

how to get:
turn into Nature Form to swim past the giant anemone without it hurting you.  continue swimming upward against the weak current to get to it.

FYI:  you can use the powered up shot of Nature Form to take out anemones !     (the giant one is immune though)

btw, can anyone help me out with specifics about getting the King's Skull and Odd Container ?

btw, can anyone help me out with specifics about getting the King's Skull and Odd Container ?

The King's Scull is in the west part of open waters, right above the west part of the abyss. There is an exit to a darkened cave in the lower-left and upper-right, in this cave you'll find the King's Skull behind a barrier you can get past with the spirit form.

The Odd Container is in the first area of Kelp Forest; ie the only area connected to other areas (the area with the special turtle and the 3rd frying pan). Go to the very top of this area and head right and down into the cave-ish thing. Somewhere in the ceiling there is a hidden cave, you can use the sun form to see it more clearly. You'll find the Odd Container here.

Btw, thanks lukich! I'll add the text file info in my next update @_@;; soo much info!!

EDIT: Also, anyone know how to get past the second set of cogs in the Sun Temple? I was up there the other day and I can make it past the first set easy, but in the second room the cogs don't seem to be spinning in the right direction. Should I lower the water levels again and see if the cogs go the other way or something else?

Haha, found a new recipe thanks to runes on the wall in Mithalas. :)

"Rainbow Soup
My only escape"

Hot Soup + Rainbow Mushroom
"Trippy."

Makes the screen a swirly rainbow, Naija laughs, it's generally hilarious.

This is a very useful thread, thanks :)

It might be nice to add a section detailing good places to find the individual ingredients - there are a few points in the game with pots containing three leaves beside doors so you can stock up, for example, and then there are things like eel oil which can be tricky to find at all.

Krotite Armor: There is an alternate entrance to the energy temple on the south-west corner of Home Waters. Open it with energy form and just head foward.

Effect: Well, you look pretty I suppose.

Big Seed: In the sanctuary where you begin the game, there is a boulder you can lift once you learn bind. It's underneath that boulder

Effect: Grows a garden apparently :S

Berry Ice Cream

Title: Re: Ixis' Treasure Hunter's FAQ
Post by: Mull on December 11, 2007, 12:32:17 AM
These are all the treasures not currently listed on the front page

... Sorry if they are mentioned elsewhere in this thread.

Mithalan Banner - There are eight rooms by the entrance of the Mithalan palace - four above and four below. In the top-left one, there is a blue banner - this is it.

Krotite Armor - In Home Waters, go towards the song cave but take a left and you'll end up at a pearl-locked gate. Unlock it and enter the shaft in energy temple- atop this shaft is the Krotite Armor

Tooth - You get it from killing the Energy god - that is, the huge fellow in the basement of Energy Temple. He drops the tooth on the ground when he dies, though it can be hard to see if you're not looking for it.

Sun Key - In the sun temple, along the eastmost wall of the first place where you'll have to manipulate the water level, there is a hidden passage (look on the minimap). The passage is in the first shaft in which you lower the blue crystal.

... And finally...

The "Ceremonial Costume" is in fact called Mithalian Dress

The prince's weapon is called Drask's Trident

Thanks, Mull !
I ended up finding the King's Skull on my own but when I'm done taking down this ice cave boss I'll look for the Odd Container.


Title: Re: Ixis' Treasure Hunter's FAQ
Post by: Mull on December 11, 2007, 01:30:52 AM
There are 28 descriptions on the front page (not counting the extra wok) and 4 in my post, 32.
There are 16 + 16 slots, 32.

I'm not sure which one you're missing since I don't have the game, but it should be there somewhere.

The Golden Starfish is somewhere underwater in the Veil, it's hidden in plain sight among other starfish in the background. It's yellow and even, slightly smaller than Naija's height.

I still don't remember about the Stone Head, but my partner in crime Karn says it's underwater in the veil.

Thanks, Mull !

I Couldn't have done it without Karn, really.


... And the Plump Pirogi gives you a +2 to the energy form as well as increased defense for 15 seconds. Since the base foods are so easy to find, it's one of the nicest powerups there is!


Title: Re: Ixis' Treasure Hunter's FAQ
Post by: Zabycx on December 11, 2007, 01:42:29 AM
Golden Starfish is in the bottom right corner of the veil.

Strange thing I noticed- the Big Seed doesn't seem to show up anywhere in Home, and there's even an empty alcove in the kelp garden area that seems perfect for it. Also, the diving helmet in Home (which I assume you can use to leave Li there) can't be used.


Title: Re: Ixis' Treasure Hunter's FAQ
Post by: icylace on December 11, 2007, 01:56:01 AM
The Big Seed produces colorful pinkish plants that show up at the corner section nearby the kitchen to the right.  It's in the same area as where the Song Plant Spore is.

It just occurred to me that we'll need to do a lot of experimenting to fully fill the cooking pages. <.< Since you can cook new foods even without the recipes (this is what I just found out when I began a new game and wanted to make some Veggie Soup), and you only get about 10 pages worth of recipes throughout the course of the game from item drops ... oh dear. :(

Post by: Shadow on December 11, 2007, 05:50:01 AM
Yes, I know I'm replying to myself, but this is great. I've been experimenting with various ingredients, and I made two discoveries. :D

Cold Soup:
Any Soup + Any Icechunk

Not that interesting as ........................

Rainbow Soup:
Rainbow Mushroom + Any Soup

This soup gives the most awesome effect ever, you have to try it.

I'll just edit this post with any other discoveries I make. :P

Poison Loaf:
Rotten Meat + Anything --- And Poison Loaf + Poison Loaf
Yes, making one poison loaf actually spawned two recipes on my book for some reason. o_o You can combine two poison loafs ... to make a single poison loaf. Seems pretty strange. lol

Has anyone considered the possibility that the larger fish in the ocean (not the minibosses, but the very big ones that take a bit to kill like the fire breathing seahorse or thing surrounded by black fish in the Kelp Forest) might have a rare chance to drop a very nice food so you can get the recipe? Some of them might end up being guesswork, but it's worth a shot if they might have a rare chance to drop nice things. This is all speculation, though, and it'd suck to kill one 100 times for nothing. :(

I've killed those sea horses a bunch of times, they don't ever seem to drop anything but leaf x3 ... which is very nice since a lot of the cooking I do involves them, and I hate swimming all over to uproot plants. :D

Not sure about the other little giants, such as the semi-invisible squid you see in a few spots, I haven't killed the others very many times.


Title: Re: Ixis' Treasure Hunter's FAQ
Post by: Karn on December 11, 2007, 07:31:41 AM
The thing I talked about with the fish drops some nicer items, tasty cakes and a few other Heal+2 things, but I haven't seen anything better than that come from it. That's what made me think maybe it drops something really nice at a rare chance.

Well, Sun Temple is mostly just patience, but I heard you can exploit those thingies you can sprout in nature form to catapult you up.
The giant whale is in the eastern part of the Abyss from what I remember. You have to swim past a hot stream to get to him, so you need spirit form. You'll also need a song to open his mouth, can't remember where that one was, though.
Lastly, the crab boss is in these sea horse ruins somewhere (Arsani or whatever they were called). I think if you will swim up high enough there, you'll come to a rock out of the water you can jump over. Behind that is a "small" pool with the crab. Probably the easiest boss in the game :p

I found a couple interesting items on my quest to make divine soup....(still not quite there, but getting close!)

Veggie Soup = Hot Soup + any Bulb (yes, actually two entries on the list for this)

Magic Soup = Hearty Soup + Healing Poultice

I currently stand at 10.5 pages of recipes, so there's still room for improvement.

A useful trick is to fill up with sea loaf, so that if you create an invalid combination, it stops you while saying "too full" instead of consuming ingredients. 

Next stop: royal soup! :)

Title: Re: Ixis' Treasure Hunter's FAQ
Post by: Don Andy on December 11, 2007, 09:09:02 AM
Giant Amoeba? Do you mean that giant jellyfish? If yes, it's in the western part of the abyss. On the map should be a small circular cave with a lot of crabs in it. Slightly east of it is the entrance to the boss. You can even swim to a small tunnel from that cave.


Title: Re: Ixis' Treasure Hunter's FAQ
Post by: Ixis on December 11, 2007, 09:27:41 AM
I see, I've been exploring every inch of the game north of the bottom part (the maps south of Mithalas, which I'm assuming is the abyss.) Things left to find above the Abyss are:

Hot zone in Mithalas and Hot zone in the green health egg/sunkenship starfish area.

And I finally got to the top of the Sun Temple. Beast form's jump helped. You have to volley back and forth between two cogs in the second part for it to work. Haven't gotten the Nature Form jump to work.

Updating list, grabbing the Krotite armor and getting some sleep.

I can't give you the EXACT locations, but in the map you should be on (outside her home) in lowest region of the map should be a set of tunnels, with a few currents. If you keep going right in these tunnels, you should eventually come upon a pointy stone (or several of them) with a big swirl on them. If you do see such a stone, you are near the cave. Just keep going in that direction.

The giant whale is in the lower left cave of the right map of The Abyss (the one with the entrance to the Ice Cavern).
Here's a picture of the map:
(http://www.mysteryx.de/xaith/whaleposition.jpg)

The Crab Boss should be located in the Arnassi Ruins map with the ancient turtle that brings you to the "Simon sez" monster, upper corner.


Nevermind, found the walker baby.
I'll add some information on how to find it:
Travel to the ancient turtle in the Kelp Forest, swim straight down into the current until you face a splitup of the path. Swim down again until you get to the big kelps on the floor and swim left, until your minimap blackens out. Switch into the Sun form and continue left until you see a path on the minimap leading down. There's a "rock-disguised" monster right ontop of the entrance. Continue down, swim past the giant walkers until one of the walkers blocks your path, swicth into Spirit form and slip through the walker, leave the Spirit form and get the walker baby.

I also pinpointed the entrance on the map:

Does anybody know if this Simon says-bubble-eye-thingy in a cave in the kelp forest which drops the third cooking slot drops something else if you play it again? I totally won't do it, it was damn hard, but it IS possible to play again, so...?

2 Arcane poultices are in the current-tunnels before the Mithalas-boss, hidden in glowing plants you have to sing to, to open them.

Post by: Xaith on December 11, 2007, 03:54:49 PM
Another addition for the Black Pearl (because Shadow didn't know the name of the sea nymphs anymore):
It's in the Kelp Forest, located on the map with the entrance to the sea nymphs' cave.
From the entrance of the nymphs' cave, swim northwest into the left main part of the map.
Swim north until you see a small cave with a big fish lurking in it (on the right side), switch into Fish form and swim past the big fish.
Switch to Sun form and follow the small passage behind the fish (avoid the thorns) and collect the Black Pearl at the end of the passage.

Also, Naija's thoughts for several treasures and their effects:

 Big Seed:
"I discovered a giant seed in my sanctuary.
When I brought it home and planted it, it sprouted into a colorful garden."

(Exact effect on Naija's cave still unknown)

Anemone Seed:
"When planted, this seed sprouted a garden of anemones in my cave."

- It spawns 3 anemones below the kitchen.

Sun Key:
"A strange shiny object... I had no idea what it was for, but I decided to keep it."

- Spawns 2 mechanic fishes in the "sun temple like" part of Naija's cave.

Black Pearl:
- Spawns a clam you can sleep in in Naija's garden.

Walker baby:
- Spawns an adult walker in Naija's garden.

There's a rock beast on the bottom level of that area, about the middle of the map, the passage is hidden behind it.

If you switch to Sun Form you should be able to spot it easier.

Hey, Ixis or someone else donating to this: Can you PM me one of your save files? I started a new game to start mapping things, and surprise surprise I saved over my 16 hour save :x.

Even if you haven't beaten it yet, that's fine, I just need one with most maps explored so I can continue mapping (I was taking pics of the map from my saved game and adding info such as treasures from my new file).

If anyone can help out that'd be great because my motivation is now gone :(.

For those looking for the second 'kelp forest/open waters' egg...

It's in neither.  Rather, it's east of the western area of the Kelp Forest, e.g. in an area where remains of pirate ships (and undoubtedly normal ships) litter the landscape.  There's a definite music change for that zone, even if it doesn't qualify on its own as an area.

And yes, it took me forever to figure this part out.

It's in the shadows on the dark side of the room (left of the key), but if you use the Light Form you can see it find the right note to sing.

Does anyone have any information about the last memory in the Abyss? I found the blocked off passage but I don't know where the pearl is. It's said to be in the whale, and I found my way to the end, but came across a singing octopus who doesn't seem to do anything (even if I sing his own song back to him.)

-Hidden Sun Temple Room
In Naija’s house, at the very bottom is a strong current you cannot pass until you have the beast form. Going south and then west will take you to a hidden room resembling the Sun Temple. Other uses are unknown so far.
There is also, on the east of this current, the glowing plant from the abyss...


By the way... this topic MUST be pinned/stickied!!  8) :o

You are on the right track with the whale.

Hint: Charged Light Form -> Lamps.

I don't know if anyone else has posted where the Royal Soup is or not, but I found it the plant in the Sun-Temple Secret room where you get the Metal Key treasure. It's in the shadows on the dark side of the room (left of the key), but if you use the Light Form you can see it find the right note to sing.
I just came across that as well:

Royal Soup:
Speed +2 for 30 seconds
made with a Hearty Soup and a Veggie Cake

Poke around the forum a bit and look for threads regarding the whale and/or octopus. The hints have been posted plenty of times ;D
Just use the sun form in the whale and try to charge up near a few of the lamps. You'll notice they have colour. Just as the notes of the octopus.

-Anemone Seed
-<UNKNOWN>
Found: In a tiny cave passageway above the giant anemone that is situated at the top of the room directly west of the save crystal in the Song Cave. Turn into Nature Form to swim past the giant anemone without it hurting you.  Continue swimming upward against the weak current to get to it.

Where is this Song Cave?

And how do I get the last health egg? Do I use spirit form to access to secret cave in the Ice Veil from the hanging water bubbles?

No, if you go  over to the east, its possible to jump up to a crystal formation in beast form then jump to a near by bubble that is close to the cave entrance. Probably easier with speed food, but I did it without.

Wrong Veil. The Ice Veil is where you need to go. Head to the bottom right of the eastern part of the Abyss and pass through the steam vent with spirit form. Continue along there to get to the Ice Veil.

Maybe you can add this to Miscellaneous: In some places (house in Mithalas, cave behind a fish in the Kelp forest, bubble in the frozen veil) are little tadpoles(?). If you don't shoot them, they will clung to your body and permanent regenerate you as long as you are on this map. Very useful. :)

- Rainbow Soup
“Pass the dutchie on the left-hand side.”
Hot Soup + Rainbow Mushroom
Terry


In fact... I tried with a Divine Soup (yup... I wasted one) and it also worked. In fact any soup will do (that's what is written on the recipes book).

-------------------
Also:

- Veggie Soup (There's another possibility) = Hot Soup + Any bulb
- Effect: Same as the other Veggie soup recipe ;)

--------------------
Edit Again :D

-Royal Soup = Hearty Soup + Veggie Cake
- Effect : Speed +2 for 30 seconds

--------------------
Yet Again! :D :D
Quote
- Special Cake
+2 Health?
Veggie Cake + Red Berry
Dropped in Kelp Forest.

It does not do Heal +2, but Regeneration x2

------------------
Still here... :D
Quote
- Swamp Cake
<UNKNOWN>
Rotten Cake + Healing Poultice
Dropped in Mithalas?
The effect is pretty awesome! :D
When you eat this cake, nothing seem to happen... but, if you morph in fish form, then move, you spread big clouds of poison on you path! :D

Just a thought, but wouldn't making a guide like this be easier on a wiki?  There's one for game strategy guides, like gamefaqs, at: http://strategywiki.org/wiki/Main_Page

Although, to be honest, I'm not sure how I'd start making a page there.  I'm better at editing existing pages on a wiki, not setting up the initial organization...

Now then, unto updates!

I'll check out the Wiki page stuff as soon as I can. If I have time this weekend or next week I'll be taking screencaps for some of the stuff and either make a .PDF or something... Not sure yet.

Hey I just got Aquaria last week and it's amazing.

I noticed I had some stuff that wasn't on the wiki so I added some things.  I forgot to comment on the Wiki, but I added entry info for Royal Soup, Turtle Soup, an additional location for a Special Bulb, a Special Cake and changed the  "Wraps" section to Rolls, since that's what they are called in the game. I'll add more to the wiki when I'm not so tired.

EDIT: Where the heck do you get the third cooking slot and what is this "Simon Sez" monster boss thing?

In order to get the third cooking slot you have to beat the "Simon sez" monster's challenge.
First, go to the Arnassi ruins which is divided into two maps: The first map is the racing circuit, the second map is the darker one with the giant crab boss and the secret ancient turtle. Search the lower left walls (western part of the cave) for a hidden passage (use the sun form) which you can only see on the minimap. When found (should be hidden near a giant arnassi statue), switch to Fish form and you'll find the ancient turtle. Ride it into the Kelp Forest, swim left and rightclick the boss to start the challenge.
He will roar if you fail the challenge, but won't do you any harm.

Yes his lightarea increases significantly, it's very good if you want to use any other form than sunform in the abyss.

Are you guys sure its possible to fill all pages of recepies?
I have 11 pages filled now and ive tried lots of things but cant seem to get another one..
although i really hope that bones can be useful somehow...

I miss only 1 recipe on the 12th page and I dunno if page 13 will be filled.
And yes, the bones are for Sea Loaf.
Which become buttered when you put oil on it as it becomes a moderate healing item then.

So bones are only for making sealof? If you mix 2 bones u get a sealoaf, not very useful though when u can make a sealoaf out of almost anything..

If you have 12 pages please enlighten us with some of the recepies you might think we dont have:D such as those not written on this thread, would be awesome.

*Spoiler spirit form bug"

Ok i just found out that if i use spiritform when im inside a clam, which you can find on various places, but the one i used was the one in the veil, if you go with the ancient turtle its the one after kelp forest and then u go to the "saving crystal" to the left, there is a clam.. use spirit for and go down into that clam this is what happens.

Li teleports into the clam and game fades out like it it were to show some cutscene, but then it crashes:/
someone please test this and see if its like that for everyone.



Title: Re: Ixis' Treasure Hunter's FAQ

Will be fixed in the new upcoming patch.

You're not supposed to be able to "activate" anything in spirit form.


Title: Re: Ixis' Treasure Hunter's FAQ
Post by: Joakim on December 15, 2007, 09:57:12 PM
I wonder if those clams are of any use... it looks just like you should place a pearl inside of them. And there are plenty of extra pearls in the kelp forest ( red flowers with pearls inside, get them by shooting the flower with natureform ), 1 pearl you need to open a door but there are 3 more... anyone know if they should be used?


Title: Re: Ixis' Treasure Hunter's FAQ
Post by: Xiagan on December 15, 2007, 10:02:23 PM
I don't think so, because you can't leave the map with a pearl... (you can leave it, but the pearl is gone then)

It should be noted that it is not actually necessary to have the spirit form in order to get the walker baby, as the walker blocking it is killable like all walkers.  Exactly why spirit crystals are there then is a mystery...

Post by: smjjames on December 17, 2007, 12:52:40 AM
possibly if you somehow get spirit form before beast form (which AFAIK, shouldn't be possible), or the devs are just giving people options to do it different ways. Say you don't really want to kill the walkers.

For those looking for the second 'kelp forest/open waters' egg...

It's in neither.  Rather, it's east of the western area of the Kelp Forest, e.g. in an area where remains of pirate ships (and undoubtedly normal ships) litter the landscape.  There's a definite music change for that zone, even if it doesn't qualify on its own as an area.

And yes, it took me forever to figure this part out.

I must be blind or my memory is failing, but i cant find this egg.  Someone could post a map screenshot pinpointing its location?

I think that's the one that is in the area just south of the Forest Goddess, with all those currents and stuff. There will be an area blocked off by vines, which should show up as a grey spot on the map. It's accessable with fish form.

Apparently, it was today that i earned the last one  :) I was thinking, there will be some kind of bonus or something when you collect all the stuff but it's just rather plain and nothing happens, but who knows  ::)

I got the last one some time ago, nothing happened for me, too.
It's probably just a "nice to have".

Well...I'm a collection whore.  I love to get everything in a game before stopping.  So that's all I really need out of it.  But of course a little bonus would have been nice...like Naija's "Good ending" costume...that was hot.

(sorry, originally posted this reply in the wrong thread -_-; )

I notice no one has mentioned where to find recipes. That would be nice to add.

Also, why do some plants (the bulbs of various colors you need to sing to open) come back and others don't? Perhaps only ingredients come back, but items you can create don't? (and if they come out of plants you can pluck, I guess after that you just get random plant ingredients?)

Glowing plants don't respawn, maybe you thought that because of some reloading after dying?

You don't exactly find recipes, you find meals and if you never cooked it orfound it before, it get's added to your cooking-book.
Hence, there are different places where you find the recipe for "spicy roll" for example, depending on where you look first, because the second time you already have the recipe and get the meal.
So maybe only some important/rare recips like the legendary cake should be added to this guide. :)

Isn't the place where you get red bulbs a glowing plant that respawns? or can you only get 4 red bulbs in the whole game? or is it a regular leaf plant with no bulbs?

I found out that recipes get added when you cook them yourself for the first time, so there isn't much point in getting the recipes only by getting the meals pre-prepared... I dunno.

BTW, has anyone ever managed to get to the spot below the normal Ruhk egg spot? There's an area you can look at off-screen that shows another 2 birds, but it looks like it would be a real challenge to go around the edge from either side...

There is a hidden tunnel on the eastern wall in the room where the crYstal was.

I think I found 6 red bulbs in game, but can't remember where the first two came from.

You get recipes added when you cook them the first time only if you don't already have the meal. When you find the first spider roll for example, you get a spider roll and the recipe for spider roll. When you find the second spider roll, you get another spider roll.

That's strange that red bulbs are the ONLY item in the game that are limited. Even the "rare" Rukh eggs can be picked up over and over again, and special bulbs have a rare chance of dropping from mini-bosses like the sea-horses. I wonder who or what might have a chance to drop red bulbs... :S

I remember coming across a unique enemy once. It was some black-shelled thing crawling along a wall and it was invincible. I don't remember where though. Probably the Abyss, maybe the body. I wonder if the dual-form scream would work on it... bind didn't.

I noticed that someone finished off the Aquaria Wiki (http://strategywiki.org/wiki/Aquaria/Table_of_Contents) the other week.
I think that every single recipe is on there.

As far as Red Bulbs go, I've found plenty from binding up plants.
They'll give me plant leaves, small bones, green bulbs, red bulbs and even red berries sometimes.

Are you sure? Because I once bound every plant in Kelp Forest and only got plant leaves, healing poultices, small bones, green bulbs and red berries in dozens but not one single red bulb.

It's in the Kelp Forest and it is not invincible, it just needs a lot of shooting. I think it gives Divine Soup, but am not totally sure about that.

The in-game recipe list has a problem that really bugs me: it doesn't tell you what the recipe is good for. Sure, you can see that if you hover over the actual item, but if you already have it, you don't need to cook it. Frequently, I go there saying, "Okay, I need (for example) a speed increase..." and have to mouse over the items I have and see if any of them will do that for me. If I don't have one and I don't remember what it is, I'm hosed. So I went ahead and created a recipe index, which I hope others may find useful. Let me know if you find any mistakes.

I think there are 4 zones for the kelp forest, arranged in a block similar to the Open Waters (maybe the bottom-right zone isn't actually part of the kelp forest... not sure)
it's in the top-right zone. middle-top area of it, there's a large area divided by the two "pieces of ground" dividing it. they're long and thin and you can go between them or around the outsides. it's a little cave area on the left side of the right "piece of ground".
there's quite a few of those green fire-spitting giant sea-horses around there. @_@; It's funny. I never went to this cave before I beat the boss, so I wonder if she says something different then...

I ended up saving all the existing pages I could, so that I would never have to load up the wiki again. Of course, all this was AFTER I finished the game, so I'm less interested in continuing to play.

""-Glowing Plant
-"Its twin bulbs drew jellyfish up form the deep."
-More jellyfish in Naija's home
Found: Hidden in a secret area in the western side of the abyss. Hint: Watch the minimap for the hidden passage."

and i've seen a hint elsewhere that it's in the room leading to the big jelly, on the eastern wall, but I STILL cannot find the passage! I found the passage leading from the one little circle room with the rock blocking it to the jelly room, but no treasure in there....

... If you look on the World Map (http://mods.whahay.net/Jester/aquaria/aquariamap1.jpg), it's in the Abyss about where the 'T' in the text "THE ABYSS" is on the map. There is one hidden path up and one down, so either search the ceiling below or the diagonal wall above (and IIRC, slightly to the left). If you hug the walls in one of these places you're bound to find it sooner or later.

Funny story - I found this before I entered the Mithalas Cathedral as hugging walls is something you do a lot when you travel through the Abyss without the sun form  :o

I did the same, since when I first found Abyss I didn't knew about any sun form, but the first thought was *Propably I would need some source of light*, but I tried to go into the darkness and found this room :D It was rather funny, but the way back was creepy, it's quite a bit from entrance to the abyss...

Found: In the area directly below the Viel, the path is split three ways. On the middle path, the Stone Head is lying on the ground.

No, once the end credits have rolled you'll have to reload the last checkpoint in order to continue exploring.

Good news are, it's conveniently placed so there's nothing (well... Almost nothing) missable after it, and you can easily reach the rest of the ocean from it.

Pistol Shrimp are in my top 5 most dangerous enemies in Aquaria.  The top spot goes to those mecha-crabs in the Sun Temple (If they get a few shots in on you you're TOAST).  Pistol Shrimp probably take 2nd place.  The Sun Temple worm is in there somewhere, but he's a boss.

Sorry if it was out of context Glamador but I read some recipes further back in thisthread so I thought that it would be ok to add this one, and the full recipe that I read mentioned that the perogi ingredient was unknown? Or did I miss a correction to it?

Most of them are useful but some more than others lol

Those that always eat up my health are the little round pink wall creepers, their shots follow you around similar to the spiky things, but at least with the spikies you can set yourself in a safe spot while shooting them. I've managed to eat the pistol shrimp everytime I've met him so far and I've managed to avoid all but one or two of it's shots. The mecha crabs are nasty but again I usually get them before they get me, but one can creep up on you while your trying to jump the cogs, nasty things :(

I've never had trouble with those damned wall creepers.  But Pistol Shrimp are fidgetty little buggers.  I eat them sure, but I usually get hit before I do.  And then of course I waste a shot trying to save or transform or something.

(This isn't illegal, right?  ;) ) A question: does Naija's shield block pistol shrimp shots? Because if it does, you can postition yourself right in front of the creature and let its own shots kill itself.  ;) (Then again, you woundn't be able to earn its shots.  :( )
If the answer to the above is yes, you could come up to the pistol shrimp in normal form, let it shoot once, and then rapidly switch to beast form and nail the little bugger.  ;D

"EDIT" Oh. Sorry, I forgot about that. In that case, you could corner it, throw a nest of briars behind it and then let it impale itself! Just a thought  :D

Haven't you noticed that the pistol shrimp is thrown away by it's own shot Chibi? Besides I don't think that her forcefield really blocks a great deal it just seems to lessen the effect and that shot is baad!


Title: Re: Ixis' Treasure Hunter's FAQ
Post by: Glamador on September 14, 2008, 02:31:00 AM
Doesn't really block?  It can take half a dozen full force shots from Mithala before breaking down.  It protects and reflects damn near any projectile in the game.  Plus the shrimp being pushed back is not an issue since shots do carry on even past the current field of view.

 ^-^ I just realized I'm only missing the Dumbo Octopus, the Glowing Plant, and the Jelly armor. You rock the ocean blue.

I think it's like this:
The shield reflects perfectly, but big projectiles can intersect with it before they bounce off, and if any part of Naijas body is in the direction of the projectile this will mean the projectile also intersects with that part, causing damage.
So, if you're moving perpendicularly to the projectiles axis, you have the largest chance to not take damage, as no part of your body is close to the edge of the shield. Moving straight towards a projectile pretty much guarantees you get hit, despite the shield.

Congrats, Align, you just answered a year old question and Tullehar necro'd the topic.
None the less, Align has a good answer. :D

Never had that happen to me though.
