STAR OCEAN THE SECOND STORY

Books: Playstation Secret Codes - Secret Codes 2003



Become Extremely Powerful in a Relatively Short Time 

There are several methods to become very powerful that are available 
quite early in the game, here are a few. 

In the beginning of the game, there is a mountain dungeon that isn't 
meant to be faced until much later, thusly the enemies will raise 
your characters' levels VERY quickly. At first they'll kick your butt, 
but with every victory you eke out, you'll become stronger [kitchen 
knife skill makes things easier here, btw] you can build your 
characters to 3000 hp levels here with some work. 

Make sure you learn pickpocket [poker face and courage skills] and 
save up 40,000 bucks. Make your way over to Clik harbor and 
purchase a thief's glove. Now you can go on a world stealing tour, 
and get many things. Very notably, there is a man in Mars who 
carries a treasure box, which when used will dispense three random 
items. Once you get it, save your game and open it until you get what 
you want. Though it usually gives you items and such, it occasionally 
gives you VERY powerful weapons including the Force Sword, the 
Sorceress Knuckle, and the very rare and powerful Marvel Sword. 

Later in the game, in the colusseum, the A-class battle earns you 
right around 100,000 exp, and allows you to quickly build levels 
until about level 105 [note: Level 90 is adequate to beat the limited 
version last boss] 

On one of the snowy islands near Giveaway, there is a shop that 
sells magical rasp, which allows you to create the most powerful 
weapons and armor in the game. 

Character Locations & How to have them join 

Claude/Rena - Which ever one of them you choose the other joins automatically

Celine - She will be in the middle of the town of Cross and will be fighting 
over a map she will then ask you to join her on a treasure hunt

Opera - If you get her you can not get Ashton. First you must do a priv 
action in the town of Cross and go towards the castle and you will see a 
3-eyed man. Later you will meet her after the tournament and you will 
meet her in Hilton in the tavern. Follow her back to cross and ask to see 
the king again. Choose the option 3-eyed woman and you will gain access 
to the Mountain Palace. When you meet her you can have her join.

Ashton - If you recruited Opera you cannot have Ashton join your party. 
After saving the kids at Mars go to Hilton and talk to two people talking 
about 2 headed dragons in the Salva Mines. Then go to the Salva Mines 
and you will meet up with Ashton. (He is in the area where you could 
not go the first time through the cave)

Bowman - If you get him you cannot get Precis or vice versa. He will 
send you to the Linga Sanctuary to get a herb (At the very back of 
the cave) then he brings you to talk to Keith and then joins.

Dias - You must be Rena to have him join. You will meet him at the 
Front Line after the tournament.

Precis - To get her you must first talk to her in Linga then leave 
Linga and re-enter using a priv action.

Ernest - Must have Opera in the group and must do a priv action 
before entering Arlia. Must go to the Shingo Forest after finding 
Opera's ships whereabouts. After defeating the ruins Opera shoots 
a fake Ernest and then you will fight him and decide if you want him 
to join.

Leon - Must be Claude to have him join. After he loses his parents 
he asks you to join.

Noel - Joins you in the search for a synard and joins afterwards.

Chisato - She follows you around and if you go down the steps on 
the screen where you first see the synard she will fun by and trip 
and drop her ID which you must bring to the news place at Central 
City and she can join from there. 

Cheaper Bandits Gloves 

To save money when buying the Bandit's Glove go to Salva Mine 
and get the Cinderella Glass. Then make your way over to Herlie. 
Use the Glass in the shop where you can buy the Bandits Glove 
and then the gloves will only be 30,000 FOL instead of 41,800 FOL! 

Discovering Talents 

When you learn the super specialty skill "Orchestra", and have 
enough songs and instruments for each character, use this 
skill and for a short time, you will be able to create items without 
the necessary talents. (For Example: cooking without the talent 
"Sense Of Smell".) While the song is playing, you will have the 
chance to learn a new talent by using your specialty skills. (For 
Example: While the orchestra song is playing, use the cooking 
"Machinery" skill to learn the talents Dexterity and Sense of Design.) 

Easy Level Up 

Use Reverse Side to make a forged medal, and then duplicate it as 
many times as you want to with Reproduction. The forged medals 
bring a character to 1 point under a level up. 

Easy Money 

When you get your Super Specialty Skill "Master Chef" up to level 6 
or higher, go to a store that sells fruits, vegetables, and egg/dairy 
products. But 20 of each, then go to Super Specialty Skills and 
choose "Master Chef" in the item screen, then pick 1 fruit and 1 
dairy. Every other try or so (depending on your skill level) you should 
create "Coconut Milk" which sells for overy 1000 Fol a piece!! You can 
also take 2 vegetables and make "Fried Vegetables" which sells for 
over 2000 Fol a piece!

Keep creating the food until you run out of ingredients then go sell 
everything you created, buy more ingredients and do it again until 
you have the desired amount of money you want. 

Easy Money with Aston 

You will have to be on the second CD with Ashton in your party for 
this to work. Ashton will need to have "customize" at a fairly high 
level and the Orchestra super skill will help a lot. Go to Central City 
and buy 20 Scythers. Make 20 Damascus (using alchemy, it'll go a 
lot faster if you do this while orchestra is playing.)Then have Ashton 
customize the scyther with the damascus (orchestra), it will make 
his most powerfull weapon, but you don't need 20 of em, sell them 
for about 1.5 million a piece. 

Easy Skill Level Gain

For an easy way to level up skills, you need to level up the perserverance 
skill to level 10. After you do this, leveling up the other skills will be 
much easier. For example making it where you can level up most skills 
with just one Skill Point.

Easy money with Sages stones 

A very easy way to make money is to get the alchemy skill. Once you 
get it to about level 9 or 10 and you have a Lezard Flask, you can 
make sages stones which sell for 60000! Irons only cost 200 so you 
make a good profit. I had about 40000 fol and bought 20 Irons. Out 
of that 20, some were turned into Sage Stones and I now have 580000!

Easy way 2 level 250 

Once you are in the cave of trials, And defeated the Level 6 boss 
and recived the funny sword. Leave, save and go back to floor 6. 
Make sure you have a few of the forged medals. But really all you 
have to do is stay in the dungeon looking for the stone theives. 
They are worth over 30000 exp each and usually attack in 4s.

Favorite Foods 

In Star Ocean everyone has a favorite food. If found, eating this food 
totally replenishes the MP and HP of the character. In some cases, it 
can be a lot cheaper than the fruit nectar.

Cluade - Steak
Rena - Shortcake
Celine - Baby Rabbitt Risotto
Ashton - Hamburger
Dias - Chicken Skewers
Bowman - Misco Soup
Leon - Carrot Juice
Ernest - Hassaku Tea
Opera - Apple Cider
Noel - Big Tuna
Chisato - Fruit
Precis - Chocolate

Favorite instruments 

Claude - Silver Trumpet
Rena - Lyre
Ernest - Cembalo
Celine - Violin
Dias - Cembalo
Bowman - Harmonica
Opera - Piano
Noel - Shamisen
Ashton - Piano
Chisato - Organ
Precis - Harmonica
Leon - Violin

Get Items While You Walk 

First of all, you need to make sure that at least one of your characters 
has the Dexterity talent. Without it, this is useless. Then learn the 
pickpocketing skill. Buy the Bandit's glove and get your pickpocketing 
skill up to at least 8 (it works better with 9 or 10). On the first disk 
in Lacour, there is a little girl on the first screen that if you pickpocket 
you will get an item called Mischief. Equip, then run around for a while. 
You will acquire random items every few steps. There is another item 
that this will work with. On the second disk, in the town called Central 
City, there is a boy running around. Pickpocket him and you will get an 
item called Trickster. This works the same way, only you get cooler items. 


Get the Battle Suit 

On the last part of Eluria Tower on the first disk, Claude gets 
teleported to his father's spaceship. While on board, pickpocket 
one of the operators to get "Battle Suit", which has 500 defense! 

Get the Windsley Sword 

To get one of the best weapons for Claude in the game, you 
must beat the Fun City Duel Tournament Class "A". Note that 
this is extremely hard. You should be around level 75 or so. The 
first time you win you'll get Windsley Sword, with attack power 1400. 

Getting Opera and Ernest 

First of all after you get Celine on your team but before the 
destruction of Clik do a PA in cross and walk up towards the castle 
you will see a three eyed man. Countinue through the game but do 
not go get Dias. After the tournament go to Herlie and gointo the bar. 
You will meet Opera and she tells you she is looking for her boyfriend 
and she leaves. Go back to Cross and ask the King about Opera and he 
will give you permitioion to go into the mountain palace if you go through 
it Opera will join your team and you will realise Ernest is not there. Go 
back to Arlia do a PA and talk to Opera. Leave town then bring 
everyone to the Shingo forest and see Operas ship. Countinue through 
the game and as you leave the Hoffman Ruins Opera will spot Ernest go 
after her. Kill the ghost possesing Ernest then either let both Ernest 
and Opera join or they both leave. 

Hidden Dungeon 

Save in front of the last boss, and leave the final dungeon. Proceed 
to fun city and talk to the old man in the back area of the colusseum. 
Say yes to all his questions, and you'll be transported back to expel, 
in Arlia. You'll notice two important things that are different: 1. There 
is a penguin walking around where you appear, talk to him and call him 
silly, he'll kick you back to Nede. 2. When you leave, there will be a 
Synard waiting for you. Hop on it and head to the area you couldn't 
access without it, the dungeon should be glowing with a red dot. 
Land and enter. The special dungeon is very tough, much harder 
than the regular last Dungeon...in fact, you'll start out fighting 
harder enemies than you saw in the normal last dungeon on the 
very first floor. 

Hidden Dungeon Tips 

The Hidden dungeon is tough and interesting at the same time. 
There a various enemies here that have a word in front of their 
name that are very tough...however, there are weapons [normally 
useless] that have that same word that wil kill the enemy with one 
hit. Example:Lvl.99 Funny Thief...pretty tough, Lvl.99 Funny Thief 
when someone has the Funny Slayer...one hit kill. On the sixth level, 
there will be a man who occasionally appears in the statue room. He 
sells very rare stuff, including all the rare metals, the real tri-emblem 
[not the fake "emplem"], and items that can teleport you out of the 
dungeon....for you see, there are no save points, so if you are on level 
13 of the dungeon and die, your screwed, so you must leave to save 
on occasion, and when you re-enter there will be methods of going 
down quickly, such as a trap door. The dungeon also contains very
powerful equipment, including [but not limited to] The Levantine Sword, 
Ashton's ultimate attack, Leon's ultimate attack, Celine's ultimate 
attack, the angel armband,several pair of bunny shoes, and the 
valiant armor. As far as monsters go, from around level 3 onward, 
you may run into boss class monsters as normal fights...you can even 
run into the last boss of the dungeon as a normal enemy, so be careful.

How to get the Eternal Sphere 

To get this amazing weapon you must first place second in the Lacour 
Tournament of Arms.(Dias kicks your butt so you can't get 1st) Once 
it's all over you must go see Gamgee, the one who's house is all the way 
to the left side of Lacour, and talk to him. You'll get the Sharp Edge sword.
(NOTE: you have to place 2nd or you don't get the Sharp Edge.) Now play 
through the game until you have the customize specialty and the 
orchestra super specialty ability. (The O.S.S.A it's required but it 
helps out a lot.) Then in the field of intelligence you will fight guys 
carrying big shields. The ones that can't be hurt when attacked from 
the front. Anyway, once you defeat them you will get mithril. You must 
get two mithrils to get the Eternal Sphere. Once you do this you play 
the orchestra (or not), and customize the Sharp Edge and the mithril 
to get the Minus Sword. Then customize the Minus Sword with another 
piece of mithril to get (dramatic pause) the Eternal Sphere! One bonus 
of this is that when you equip it on Claude. Stars spray out causing extra 
hits when you fight enemies and it's attack power is a whooping 1600 
making it easy to kill the enemies early in the second disk. 

How to get the Sword of Marvel 

When you learn the pickpocketing skill go to Mars village and preform 
the act on the old man by the inn. It will give you an item called treasure 
chest. Go out and save your game. The treasure box will give you three 
items at once (to see if you got the Marvel Sword rearrange them in the 
newest order). If you do not see the Marvel Sword the simply reload you 
game and try again. This weapon will kill most enemys in one hit 

Instant romance points 

First, create one of each of the character's special books (ex. Claude's 
Ocean of Stars) with the publishing skill. Go to the publisher's booth in 
Lacour (virtual Expel is easier) and sell him one of each book. Exit Lacour 
and come back a while later. You can now buy as many books as you want. 
Use these books on characters to raise the romance points that affect 
endings. WARNING! This can backfire if you use to many, and you'll end 
up with all single endings.

Priest's Password 

In the demon's den there is a glass priest who asks you for the special 
word necessary to get the cardkey. The password is APOCA. 

Rip Off Santa 

Here is a simple cheat that will help you purchase those majorly 
overpriced Santa Boots (10,000,000 Fol) from Santa, the wandering 
merchant on the 6th floor of the Cave of Trials. First off, you have to 
meet him. Santa will appear randomly on Level 6, usually by the statues 
of the thieves so if he isn't there the first time, try leaving the dungeon 
and comming back. When you finally meet up with him, he will sell Sage's 
Stones for 50,000 Fol a piece and buy them back for 65,000 Fol. Buy 20 
Sage's Stones and sell them right back to him for a 15,000 Fol profit!! 
Now, if you have the super specialty command Identify All, you can make 
a 45,000 Fol profit by buying low and selling high! I just wonder if I'll get 
that Eternal Sphere I wanted for Christmas? 

Secret Items in Eluria Colony 

When you are in the Eluria colony enter the weapons shop. Go to the right 
wall face it and press X. Repeat until you check the whole area you will 
find lots of good items like the silver robe 

The Ring of Happiness 

When you are told to go to the town of Cross for the first time, stop 
in Alen's house on your way through. Talk to him twice. The second time 
he should give you the "Ring of Happiness". 

The Ultimate Item 

When you have Master Chef level 8 or higher, use vegetables with egg/dairy 
products and if the combo of ingredients is correct, you will recieve a 
"Fruit Nectar" which restores 100% HP and MP, or which sells for 109,000 FOL! 

Two Levels for the Price of One 

You must have two items in your inventory for this to work: "Forged 
Medals" and the "Dream Bracelet." (I suggest reproducing medals until 
you have many). Equip the Dream Bracelet on the character you wish 
to level. Now use a Forged Medal on that character. De-equip the Dream 
Bracelet. After the next battle, you will gain two levels, at the cost of 
only one Forged Medal. 

Universal Difficulty Level 

If you get over 45% of the voice clips, which is about 600 or so, a new 
'Universal' difficulty level will open up. Enemy HP and Attack power is 
doubled in this mode.
