You'll be starting out at the 3rd floor of the shrine. Make your way to the
northwest room for a treasure chest with "9,900 Gil". Proceed northease up
the stairs to the 4th floor. The upper left room here contains a "DIAMOND
ARMOR", the center one has "20 Gil", while 3 the rooms at the bottom row
contain a "LIGHT AXE", "MAGE'S STAFF", & "12,350 Gil". Take the stairs
southeast to the 5th floor.
There are a lot of rooms here, some with mermaids, others with treasures.
Thankfully there are no random encounters, so do check the place thoroughly
before moving on. You'll find the following treasures in this floor --
"DIAMOND ARMLET", "32,670 Gil", DIAMOND SHIELD, DIAMOND HELM, "ANTIDOTE",
& finally the "ROSETTA STONE". The room containing the last 3 items is
located norwest. (Take the path going off-screen to the left.) Warp out
of here, rest and save your game at Onlak.
Head back to the shrine, but this time we'll be heading down, instead of up.
At the very first screen, go northwest-most part of the area, down the
stairs to the 2nd floor. Here, head left then up at the split. Go up to 3F
Continue on until you get to the 4th floor, and enter the room for a couple
of treasures containing "560 Gil" total. Head down the next staircase.
Once again, there are several treasures to be found here. The room just a
bit below you has a total of "15,825 Gil". The far left one has "5,835 Gil"
and "GIANT'S GLOVES". From here, head north and grab another "LIGHT AXE".
Continue on east, then around the corner to a room with 4 chests, containing
a total of "19,990 Gil" & "RIBBON". Proceed northwest down to the 1st floor.
In this area, head west then north. Take a left at the path that goes off-
screen. Continue south and into the large chamber. Keep heading north, then
left into a small passage to the next room. Just go along the corridor here.
A boss fight awaits in the chamber at the end of the hall.
HP: 1600 | EXP: 4245 | GIL: 5000
First off be sure to equip the Giant's Gloves on your fighters, then just
unload on Kraken using physical attacks. While Black or Red Wizards cast
Haste on themselves and your fighters. Then hit it with your strongest
available Bolt spells. White Wizards should focus on providing support,
such as healing or casting Shield 2 or Invis 2.
Warp out the shrine and fly to Melmond. Talk to the guy standing by the
tombstones to the north of town, and since you have the Rosetta Stone in
your possession, he'll teach you how to speak the Lufenian language. Next
destination is the town of Lufenia, located northwest of Melmond.
Land on the tiny patch of grass behind the mountains, separating the forest
& desert. Walk south into town. Here, head northeast then southwest. Talk
to the guy standing at the end of the bottom dock, to receive a "BELL".
Return to your airship, then land at the srip of grass just ouside the
massive desert, and continue on foot into the tower.
