Golden Sun: The Lost Age

How do I fix the mast of the ship in Alherpha?

Games Guru: You don’t get to fix it on the visit in which you first find it. First you will need to do more exploring and side quests. You will find an explosive while you are out again, and that explosive will enable you to clear the rocks from the mast and start fixing it. You will need Burst before you can fix the mast, and that will require visiting the towers.

How do I throw a rope? Which buttons do I press to throw a rope?

Games Guru: The rope’s in the game to help progression. You need the Lash Psynergy to use the ropes, though. Lash will throw the rope to a peg and tie it off, allowing him to cross. If he’s stuck and sees a coiled rope and peg, he probably still needs Lash to continue. You can actually progress the game up to the Kibombo Mountains before getting stuck from lack of Lash Psynergy. Lash is located at the Kandorean Temple, which is south of the first town, Daila. Inside the temple, master monk Poi will give you a stone that allows you to cast Lash.

  1. doom dragon hater – I feel your pain, dude. I hated that dragon with a passion. But, I beat him, so I think my strategy might work for you. This is gonna’ be very long. For my starting party, I used Felix, Isaac, Jenna, and Piers (with djinn matched to their element). Put 4 djinn on standby for each, unless you don’t have most of the djinn. In that case, leave 4 set for each. Start out strong with high level summons, and keep using group healing spells from Jenna, whether you think you need it or not. Use single target psynergy like Ragnarok, and attack djinn whenever you can. Once you beat the first head, it gets harder. Start using cool aura to heal. If you have djinn that put up a “wall” that reduces damage, use them as often as possible, since it reduces damage from the move “cruel ruin.” Keep doing pretty much the same thing for the rest of the battle. However, if that party gets totally wiped out, have enough mercury and jupiter djinn on standby to summon Eclipse. It does a lot of damage.

    And, with regards to your equipment, go through the towns and BUY EVERYTHING THAT RAISES YOUR STATS. Don’t forget to check the old equipment that one person is done with, with some other character that could be able to use it. Good luck! 😉

    I’ve been stuck on doom dragon for about a year (ie i gave up), does anyone have any helpful ways to beat him?

    My people are at about level 40, but their normal attacks only range between 80-130hp….!Thats useless against 12000 hp monster, especially when my summons will never go above 300. Have i got the wrong equipment?

    Ps i didnt do the transfer so my isaac gang are rubbish..

    Please help!

  3. Apparently, there’s supposed to be a golden sun 3, but I also heard it wasn’t true. It’s driving me crazy, since I definitely want the third one if it will exist someday. If anyone knows anything about it, please tell me! 🙂

  4. sorry, forgot in my post that golden sun 1 only allows for 7 djinn for each person…well then, put 4 djinn on standby for summons for each character, but keep 4 set for your main healer.

  5. Sceptile- Basically, for beating S and M, attack with water, since it will do the most damage. At the start of the battle, make sure you have at least 4 djinn set so you can keep a reasonably good class and therefore be strong enough. Mia or Ivan should be casting healing spells every turn, whether you need it or not, because you could be hit with something terrible. Once you’re through with them, you should already be all healed up and ready to face the fusion dragon. Continue with 4thlevel summons, mainly water onesand keep doing every thing you can to raise your defense and resistance. He’s insanely strong, but if you make sure you attack him and heal yourself as needed, you should be able to beat him.

  6. As i said i would do yesterday, here is how to get the Ninja class. For Felix and Issac, you set 3 fire and 3 wind djinni. For Jenna and Garet, you set 3 earth and 3 wind djinni.

  7. I think that this is among the best games ever made. I have beaten the star magician, who is possibly the hardest boss in the game. I think that Valukar is the easiest of the optionals. Also, a tip on the Sentinal, he is vulnerable to djinni, and is really vulnerable to earth type summons. I recommend getting Daedalus before attempting him. My strategy for the Doom dragon is to put both your full party healers and recovery items into your first party, and put all of the second party djinni into standby. With luck, your first party will last into the first couple thousand damage of the third head. When your first party dies, hit the doom dragon with two Eclipse summons and a Catastrophe summon. When I did this, it died after the Catastrophe summon. You get Eclipse from the fountain in Lemuria and you get Catastrophe from the Sentinal. If you need help on either this game or the original Golden Sun, Ask me. Soon i will post a comment on how to get possibly the best class in the game which only earth and fire adepts can get. Ninjas!! I kid you not.

  8. Pokerus, on golden sun how do u get to hesperia? and in babi lighthouse on the top, how do you beat saturos and menardi? ( in normal form and fusion dragon form.) heres my party

    Marco(Issac but nicknamed him)lv35

    Garet lv34

    Mia lv34

    Ivan lv34

  9. Haku X – Which temple are you refering to and in which golden sun game?

    njp – The best way is to use your Djinn and summons. I’m sure you’ve noticed Psynergy does not work, so use your PP on healing and maybe boositng stats. The best summons to use are earth element. Also, if you’re taking to much damage to do much, have a healer healing unconditionally every turn, restoring their PP once in a while with a Djinn (Ether). He has about 8,700 HP

    Lil_azn_boy_lil – First, you gotta’ cross the Gondowan cliffs, which are west from Madra (check the map). Once you get through those, go to Naribwe, and get to the Kibombo Mountains. Go through those, and you’re right at the entrance to Kibimbo. Then you get to meet Piers, who is totally awesome.

    Sceptile – YES! No Piers, but it was still amazing. Gotta love the Lamakin desert.
