Part 132: Labyrinth of Memories

Today, it"s time because that the bonus dungeon.

You are watching: Tales of vesperia definitive edition labyrinth of memories

*
To unlock this dungeon, you require to have actually gone to Phaeroh"s Crag right before Zaude and also do the scene in fake Yormgen. If friend don"t, well, no bonus dungeon for you on that playthrough. The developers probably realized that this was a vast dick relocate after relax (or maybe just acquired some an adverse feedback), for this reason in the PS3 version, this dungeon is no longer missable. I"m no 100% sure, however I believe you head to contemporary Yormgen after ~ beating duke if girlfriend haven"t excellent the "normal" way to unlock it, or probably the scene we"ll view in Dahngrest in a bit simply triggers there is no the prerequisites. I need to probably inspect this more thoroughly.Anyway, we"re going earlier to fake Yormgen.
*
Somehow, the is now filled v all the NPCs that we saw way back during the Yormgen illusion after we passed out in the desert.
*
Our target is talking to the Sage.
*
Haven"t we already met? that looks choose he"s forgotten. The didn"t forget... It"s much more like...we"re earlier in the past now. Yes. The town"s bustling with civilization now, too. What room you whispering around over there? Ah, possibly you would prefer to hear an exciting story? i don"t have the time to hear to any epic sagas, gramps. No, it"ll be fairly short, I assure you. All right, then. Lay the on us.
*
and then, out from the stacks of books......
*
*
...I cannot believe this... He"s been talking for two hrs now... Err...perhaps you might get come the allude of the story? What carry out you mean? This part is an extremely important, and also interesting, too!
*
Come on, get ta the good stuff! Oh, every right. So, ultimately, I found a specific book in the stacks. And in this book, the complying with was written:
*
once the maiden of beauty sets the end on a journey, she will certainly come under to the fourth dimension, keeping watch over a fiery youth. Receiving the love of heaven, she will certainly descend into a human being body, and will revolt against the heavens. Eh? quite interesting, don"t friend think? Is it?
*
What secret proclamations... It"s really interesting, indeed. Would certainly you choose to review more? ns can give it come you, if you"d like. You don"t mind? No, no at all. I"ve currently memorized the whole book anyway.
*
say thanks to you an extremely much! you sure carry out like books, Estelle.We deserve to talk to him again for this line that I"d love to actually hear the story of, however otherwise we"re done here.
*
Next avoid is Dahngrest for a short scene.
*
(Imagine some display screen shaking here.)
*
Other NPC
: ns think it came from the west. That...seemed a little different indigenous an earthquake.
*
Yes, that felt choose there may have been a landslide. That"d it is in one doozy that a landslide. Let"s go have a look.Roughly west that Dahngrest are the Truffdae Mountains. If us went here before the step in Dahngrest, us would have actually seen this:
*
However, now, castle have adjusted to this:
*
Approaching the readjusted area triggers a scene.
*
Yes... Wasn"t this area an alleged to it is in a mountain range? It seems that the rumble us heard back in Dahngrest came from here. ...Ya sayin" whole mountain fell down here? That"s a pretty big cave in. Deep beneath a steep and winding hill range, ~ above the 6th continent of Yurzorea, slumbers a man who transcends time... Huh? Wasn"t the what was written in that publication you got back in Yormgen...? Yes. Hmmm... It could have something to do with this. Let"s walk down and also have a look.And under here, we can uncover this... Dimensional rift or whatever it"s claimed to be.
*
We can go into it like any type of other town or dungeon, so let"s do simply that, after ns restock items and also rest up.
*
*
*
offers ya the heebie-jeebies, doesn"t it?
*
Come out and also show yourself! Sounds prefer someone gets turn off on threatening people. Time because that a beat-down! yet it doesn"t seem prefer there"s anyone right here at all... Wh-what do you mean, Estelle? I-I"m s-sure he"s simply really great at hiding... Yeah! That"s it!
*
There might be something come be claimed for listening to a warning, though.
*
S-so-so, i guess we need to s-stop, right? ns mean, there"s nothing below anyway...right, guys? Yes, let"s get going. Let"s look around a small more. Urgh...As quickly as this step is done the game throws this post at you:
*
Once girlfriend proceed, friend cannot walk back! have you comprised your mind?
*
Picking no simply returns you to the human being map. If you speak yes, your on-screen character provides a brief quip. Girlfriend only ever before see among them, so here"s the complete list: Yeah, I"ve comprised my mind. Permit me pass. Of course ns have! I"m walking in. I-I"ve consisted of my mind...! Argh! I"ve had enough of your scare tactics! You"d much better be ready for ME, punk! Yes, that course. Permit me pass, please. Yeah, yeah, I"ve consisted of my mind. Ya obtained me curious no ta wanna check out what yer hidin" in there.Then pass. You"re around to enter an infinite and also merciless labyrinth native which you have the right to never return, wherein hopeless confusion awaits you!
Sounds an excellent to me! bring it on!
*
...Here i go... ...L-labyrinth...?! oh man, i hope i don"t gain lost... Who"s afraid of a small labyrinth?! no me... Hehe, sounds choose this might be fun. Eek, scary...Maybe i should"ve brought a readjust of diapers...And we"re inside... Because that the lack of a far better word. Welcome to the Labyrinth of Memories.
*
Huh...? Don"t I understand this place? This is Zaphias... Why...?
*
Ha ha... I don"t know just how they"re doing this, yet I get the idea.
*
What idea...? This is some sort of illusion, yeah? Let"s have as much fun below as possible. Have the right to we have fun in a location like this...?
*
Oh, that"s really useful come know! say thanks to you. You"re really thoughtful! us don"t require you come tell us to be careful. Let"s go.I"m almost certain the design paper for this dungeon contained both "make this as long as possible with the the very least amount the effort" and "make the player not actually want to do this place". The sucks
. But very first things first.
*
You may notice this brown filter over the area. You will see this filter the entire dungeon, so obtain used to it. This additionally goes because that this music, too as
*
this great motion blur whenever noþeles on-screen is moving.
*
Every area of this place has one or an ext of this dimensional rifts the leads further into the dungeon. This area has actually two. Both of this will lead to a various area, and trigger the very same scene:
*
*
That makes one!
What"s with this coin? It"s no Gald...
*
Wh-where is the voice comes from...? N-not prefer I"m scared or anything... Hey...you wanna walk back? ns don"t think us can.If you wish to go back to the soil of the living, then it would be wise to gather up coins.
*
Looks favor savin" up those coins is "bout all we deserve to do. That is, unless we desire to stay right here for the remainder of our lives! C-cut the end the jokes! Oh, all right. ...Let"s keep going.Big reason #1 why this place sucks: Fake Gald. To actually complete this place, we have to collect a full of fifteen Fake Gald. Except the an initial one here, getting Fake Gald is completely random
. Girlfriend may obtain one after ~ beating a boss, and also you may get one indigenous treasure chests. I believe the fall rate rises in later areas of the dungeon, however that could be finish coincidence.So hey, there us a chest right next to us in that cutscene, wasn"t there? Let"s open up that!
*
Welp.Big factor #2 why this location sucks: all treasure chests room locked till you have beat all adversaries in the area. The materials of these chests is random, and also may save on computer anything from Gald (pretty common) to usable items to equipment to Fake Gald (super rare). It feels favor later locations in the dungeon provide you better stuff than earlier areas.So you"d think, okay, sure, if the endowment only offers you random pointless stuff yet requires you come fight every enemies, and also later areas of the dungeons with bosses offer you better chance of Fake Gald, might also just neglect the beforehand random enemy fights and rush with to the end, right?Nope. Factor #3: The dimensional rifts to the next area don"t spawn until girlfriend have defeated all enemies in the area! Which method that the lock on endowment chests is totally pointless
and just way you have to backtrack v the area as soon as all enemies are dead. Game design!
*
*
The enemies approximately here aren"t very exciting. They"re constantly one of 3 groups: enemies that would usually be in the area, adversaries that would certainly be in the final dungeon, and also like three opponents that room actually exclusive come this place.
*
*
*
Enemies are dead, which way we can breakthrough and open up the chest(s). I"ll skip over many of this ~ the very first room.
*
Entering the just warp in this area go to:
*
You may have noticed that all of these areas are locations we"ve been in before. This leads into reason #4: the layout. Because they"re just using stitched together areas from before, you will have no proviso how any type of of these room actually linked unless you have a map or diagram.GameFAQs is come the rescue:
*
(http://www.gamefaqs.com/xbox360/945...eria/faqs/54060)This look at a little bit confusing, but is in reality not too bad. We begin at the bottom and all paths are one-way.Thanks to exactly how the middle section the this location is laid out, it will take friend a full of in ~ least 5 visits the this dungeon to watch every area once, however only four visits are compelled to meet and also scan every foe for the monster book. Unfortunately, this is no an issue.
*
And they didn"t even bother to correctly section the areas off for the revisit here, i am to run up against an invisible wall in the screenshot above.
*
Here"s part or maybe all of the storage dungeon exclusive enemies.
*
*
Some of the chests room jokes, many thanks RNG.Imagine more rooms favor these here, there yes, really isn"t even a point to show them off, they"re all places we"ve already seen but with a brown filter.Eventually, us will gain to a boss:
*
*
The bosses count as different scans and actually have various stats 보다 originally, and additionally remove all the in-battle events and also dialogue and also whatever, but are otherwise similar as far as I can tell. Exact same movesets, exact same AI.
*
After beating either Yeager or Schwann for the very first time, a step triggers:
*
*
Wh-what...?...The last fight caused a rift to open up in space...!
...! probably we can go exterior from here!Y-you cannot walk outside! Th-the only means out is to do it every the way to the end, the course! The mysterious voice sounds a bit an ext flustered 보다 usual. Looks favor we can acquire out of here after all. Surely you"re not arguing that we go earlier after coming this far? sometimes the ideal strategy is come run. It might be a great idea come go earlier to recuperate our energy.If you leaving now, you"ll need to start from the start the next time you enter! carry out you quiet aspire to together folly...?!If you decision to leave: We"re walk to step out because that a bit.W-wait... So, are we leave or not? Come on!Alas, they gained away...If you stay: We"re walk to save going. H-huh...? You want to store going? perform you really want to need to start all over again indigenous the very beginning? ns don"t really check out why we require to ever before come here again... Yet if we don"t find out that the voice is, Rita will be too scared come sleep at night. W-what are you talking about?! space you speak you can just chalk it as much as ghosts and also forget about it? Th-there"s no such thing as ghosts! Ah, good. Then we can acquire moving.Hee hee hee... I admire your courage...I actually execute take a quick trip external to trigger the skit (since all audio in the storage dungeon it s okay an echo effect which is pretty annoying), which pressures me to begin over native the beginning. Gaining out here isn"t also terrible, only makes friend redo 4 or five rooms, so let"s neglect that and jump straight ago to whereby we were:
*
Skipping past most of this rooms...
*
This one is interesting since in the actual video game it"s only supplied for a cutscene, means back once we very first met Barbos and Ioder. Below we have the right to actually run roughly on it. Strange priorities, return I intend they can have already created the non-cutscene map before they realized they only needed it because that a scene.
*
Two.
*
You sometimes gain to struggle battles choose Estelle or Schwann v them being in her party as well, i m sorry is kinda neat and silly.
*
These black warps have some necessity to go with them, in this instance you need to have actually finished the Giganto sidequest.
*
Like I claimed before, assuming i didn"t get excessive RNG, later areas have much better items than earlier ones, for this reason it would be much more efficient to simply run earlier here instead of fighting a million random enemies.
*
Three.
*
Four. This is additionally a cutscene-exclusive room, i believe.
*
And ago here is the end-of-dungeon locked warp, which requirements the 15 Fake Gald:
*
*
End of run 1: 4 Fake Gald. This is in reality pretty good, on typical you only seem to get approximately two per run.Fake Gald (thank fucking god) dead over between trips come this dungeon, yet everything else resets, consisting of chests. A single run through this dungeon normally takes somewhere approximately an hour, ns guess.Let"s just speed with this until we obtain to exciting stuff again. Second run:
*
Here"s an additional of these cutscene-only areas, this time the scene in Baction with the Schwann reveal.
*
Five.
*
And finish of run two, just one Fake Gald.Third run:
*
Sometimes girlfriend actually acquire nice ingredient from the random chests!
*
This area is weird because, for some reason, friend can"t open up the food selection here. No idea why. I believe it"s fixed in the PS3 version.
*
*
*
*
Fourth run:
*
*
*
*
*
Fifth run:
*
*
*
*
Yay, we"re finally done here! that course, the game proceeds to troll me hard:
*
*
*
Running total: 18 Fake Gald in 5 runs, i beg your pardon is insanely good actually.So what in reality is behind this locked warp?
*
*
*
...Then...can we obtain out of the labyrinth indigenous here? Or perhaps it leader to the floor of the dead?That is your own choice.
ours choice...?
*
*
Aaack! Is this... Is this the one the book was introduce to...?
*
Death will certainly be much more than happy to take you right into her cold embrace. Hee hee hee...
we eat guys like the for breakfast! Come on, it"s go time!Watch the battle! / Baldurdash
*
*
It"s Kratos! In case you don"t know, he"s among the main characters in tales of Symphonia.
*
*
*
He fights a lot choose he did back in Symphonia, and overall this is a pretty fun fight.
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
He"s also got his Mystic Arte, i m sorry as far as i remember to be exclusive come the PS2 harbor of Symphonia.

But yeah, funny fight, not as well hard however not a cakewalk either. It"s too bad this is component of such a destructive dungeon, really!
*
L-look in ~ that! her trickery doesn"t work-related on us anymore! Now display yourself!! ...I said, show yourself...
*
*
..."Don"t think this is the end?" What"s this every about? I"m no sure, but it sound ta me favor he"s gotta bad case of cake grapes. I guess this means we"re not v with him? however isn"t the an departure right up ahead...? I"m no sure... Let"s go and also see...
*
And with this, us have whatever we have to do everything in the Coliseum!
*
Oh, and also in situation you wonder, the chests right here are randomized crap, as with the remainder of the dungeon. Many thanks game.
*
*
*
*
Let"s obtain out the here.
*
Phew... Give thanks to goodness.
*
Aww, I want to pat a tiny more. Should we come earlier again? we can try a different route next time! You"re not funny! protect against it!
*
Hmmm... No idea on the one. A ghost, probably. Ns told you! There"s no such thing as ghosts!! I"m certain it was just some lame old mage who gets a absent from make illusions for people to get lost in! all right, let"s leaving it in ~ that, then. Great idea. Otherwise Rita"ll it is in in a rotten mood all week. Yet whaddaya think would make anyone wanna perform that? ours money, maybe? No way... It"s quite to watch the civilization is still full of mysteries. Yes, i agree.
*
I second that. We must go prior to we acquire yanked into an additional labyrinth. Okay, okay.

Ahhh, Memories
Apparently there"s another scene if you"re insane sufficient to in reality go earlier in again, but I couldn"t gain it to trigger. Wait wait! room you GOING earlier INSIDE?! Yeah. Perform you mind? you mind, don"t you? ...Yes. We don"t should be below anymore, perform we? It"s simply an illusion make by some mage, right? What"s there to be fear of? N-nothing, however even so...Rita shares my sentiments.A brief note top top the PS3 version of this dungeon, due to the fact that I kinda ignored that. It"s greatly the exact same with a few minor changes:- The Tison/Nan battle adds Clint right into the fight.- A room v The Don is added between Zagi and also Duke.- A room through Seifer is included between Estelle and Gigalarva.- A room with green Menace is added between Chimera and also Pterobronc.- A room with Bloody beak is added between Medusa and Duke.It additionally feels choose you gain less Fake Gald in the PS3 version, but that can be fully random chance screwing me. Or perhaps they boosted the drop price for the european 360 version or something. That knows. (The PS3 variation is clearly based turn off the JP/US 360 version.)Going with the dungeon a couple times acquired me a couple skits:
*
Skit: roughly the World, thanks to Karol / Baldurdash the feels choose we"ve been all over the whole world. I"d read around some that the locations in books, but we"ve gone to too many of locations I"d never ever heard of! Ah, ya gotta admire the youthfulness...the sweet naivete! What? are you as well old and withered to evaluate anything anymore? Oh! You"re terrible! ns am as chaste an" pure as a newborn babe... Judy, you"ve been roughly the civilization on Ba"ul, right? did you recognize most of the areas we went?
*
No, not at all.
*
There to be a many of areas I"d never seen before. See? Wasn"t that a an excellent idea to join Brave Vesperia? watch how far we"ve come! i feel favor I really have a sense of how huge the people is now. That wasn"t that method in the castle. Girlfriend see? Don"t be obtaining all cocky, Karol. It"s not choose you had anything to execute with it.
*
currently ya know how I feel, kid! Come ta ol" Raven"s arms.
*
Misery loves company! Skit: The strongest Guild

*
*
ns don"t care how plenty of enemies we"ve beaten, you men are just too full of yourselves! but I don"t think any enemy might stand up to us at this point! See, also cute li"l Judith states so! ♥ yet doesn"t this do you a tiny uneasy? getting this strong... What carry out you mean? What if everyone is fear of us, or no one desires to be everywhere near us...?
*
Or maybe they"ll capture us, and put united state in a cage for everyone to see!
*
I-I see... Ns hadn"t thought about that...
*
Come on, that would never happen! Hey, a life of deluxe in a cage, world attendin" ta mine every need! Doesn"t sound bad ta me!
*
...No issue how solid they get, some world never change... ...Heh heh... You"re one come talk, Yuri. Skit: examine It Out! Look, look! ns filled increase the Monster Book! Oooh! permit me see! We certain have combated a many of various kinds the monsters. However it looks prefer there are still a couple of blank pages left... I"m sorry... I don"t understand if I"ll ever be able to finish it... You"re no the just one functioning on it, though. Huh...? Right. That book is the product of all our battles together.
