Part 132: Labyrinth of Memories

Today, it"s time for the bonus dungeon.

You are watching: Tales of vesperia labyrinth of memories

*
To unlock this dungeon, you require to have gone come Phaeroh"s Crag right prior to Zaude and do the scene in fake Yormgen. If you don"t, well, no bonus dungeon for you on that playthrough. The developers probably realized that this was a substantial dick relocate after relax (or possibly just gained some an unfavorable feedback), for this reason in the PS3 version, this dungeon is no longer missable. I"m no 100% sure, however I think you head to contemporary Yormgen after ~ beating battle each other if girlfriend haven"t excellent the "normal" means to unlock it, or possibly the scene we"ll watch in Dahngrest in a bit simply triggers there is no the prerequisites. I have to probably inspect this an ext thoroughly.Anyway, we"re going back to fake Yormgen.
*
Somehow, that is now filled through all the NPCs that us saw means back during the Yormgen illusion after us passed the end in the desert.
*
Our target is talking to the Sage.
*
Haven"t we currently met? it looks choose he"s forgotten. That didn"t forget... It"s an ext like...we"re earlier in the previous now. Yes. The town"s bustling with people now, too. What room you whispering around over there? Ah, maybe you would like to listen an interesting story? i don"t have actually the time to listen to any epic sagas, gramps. No, it"ll be fairly short, I assure you. All right, then. Lay that on us.
*
and then, the end from the stacks of books......
*
*
...I cannot think this... He"s been talking for two hrs now... Err...perhaps you can get come the allude of the story? What perform you mean? This component is very important, and also interesting, too!
*
Come on, get ta the great stuff! Oh, every right. So, ultimately, I found a details book in the stacks. And also in this book, the adhering to was written:
*
as soon as the maiden of beauty sets the end on a journey, she will come down to the fourth dimension, maintaining watch over a fiery youth. Receiving the love of heaven, she will certainly descend right into a person body, and also will revolt versus the heavens. Eh? nice interesting, don"t girlfriend think? Is it?
*
What mysterious proclamations... It"s an extremely interesting, indeed. Would certainly you favor to read more? i can provide it to you, if you"d like. Girlfriend don"t mind? No, no at all. I"ve currently memorized the whole publication anyway.
*
thank you very much! girlfriend sure carry out like books, Estelle.We deserve to talk to him again because that this line the I"d love to actually hear the story of, but otherwise we"re done here.
*
Next avoid is Dahngrest because that a brief scene.
*
(Imagine some screen shaking here.)
*
Other NPC
: ns think it came from the west. That...seemed a tiny different indigenous an earthquake.
*
Yes, it felt choose there may have actually been a landslide. That"d it is in one doozy of a landslide. Let"s go have a look.Roughly west that Dahngrest are the Truffdae Mountains. If us went here prior to the step in Dahngrest, us would have actually seen this:
*
However, now, they have readjusted to this:
*
Approaching the changed area cause a scene.
*
Yes... Wasn"t this area an alleged to be a hill range? It appears that the rumble we heard earlier 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 mountain range, top top the sixth continent that Yurzorea, slumbers a male who transcends time... Huh? Wasn"t that what was composed in that book you got earlier in Yormgen...? Yes. Hmmm... It might have something to execute with this. Let"s walk down and also have a look.And under here, us can discover this... Dimensional rift or every little thing it"s an alleged to be.
*
We can go into it like any type of other town or dungeon, so let"s do simply that, after i restock items and rest up.
*
*
*
provides 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 favor there"s anyone right here at all... Wh-what execute you mean, Estelle? I-I"m s-sure he"s just really an excellent at hiding... Yeah! That"s it!
*
There might be something to be stated for listening to a warning, though.
*
S-so-so, ns guess we must s-stop, right? ns mean, there"s nothing below anyway...right, guys? Yes, let"s get going. Let"s look roughly a little more. Urgh...As shortly as this step is done the video game throws this post at you:
*
Once you proceed, you cannot go back! have you consisted of your mind?
*
Picking no simply returns you come the people map. If you speak yes, her on-screen character provides a quick quip. Friend only ever before see one of them, for this reason here"s the full list: Yeah, I"ve comprised my mind. Permit me pass. Of course i have! I"m walking in. I-I"ve consisted of my mind...! Argh! I"ve had enough of her scare tactics! You"d much better be prepared for ME, punk! Yes, of course. Let me pass, please. Yeah, yeah, I"ve consisted of my mind. Ya obtained me curious no ta wanna see what yer hidin" in there.Then pass. You"re about to go into an infinite and merciless labyrinth indigenous which you can never return, whereby hopeless confusion awaits you!
Sounds good to me! carry it on!
*
...Here ns go... ...L-labyrinth...?! oh man, i hope i don"t gain lost... Who"s fear of a small labyrinth?! not me... Hehe, sounds favor this could be fun. Eek, scary...Maybe i should"ve lugged a change of diapers...And we"re inside... For the lack of a far better word. Welcome come the Labyrinth the Memories.
*
Huh...? Don"t I understand this place? This is Zaphias... Why...?
*
Ha ha... I don"t know exactly how they"re law this, but I gain the idea.
*
What idea...? This is some type of illusion, yeah? Let"s have actually as lot fun right here as possible. Can we have actually fun in a location like this...?
*
Oh, that"s an extremely useful come know! thank you. You"re very thoughtful! we don"t need you to tell us to it is in careful. Let"s go.I"m almost certain the design file for this dungeon consisted of both "make this as long as possible with the the very least amount that effort" and also "make the player no actually want to carry out this place". That sucks
. But very first things first.
*
You may notification this brown filter over the area. Friend will see this filter the whole dungeon, so get used come it. This additionally goes for this music, also as
*
this great motion blur whenever anything on-screen is moving.
*
Every area of this place has one or more of this dimensional rifts the leads more into the dungeon. This area has actually two. Both of these will cause a various area, and trigger the very same scene:
*
*
That provides one!
What"s through this coin? It"s no Gald...
*
Wh-where is that voice coming from...? N-not prefer I"m fear or anything... Hey...you wanna go back? ns don"t think us can.If you great to return to the land of the living, climate it would be wise to conference up coins.
*
Looks prefer savin" up those coins is "bout all we deserve to do. That is, uneven we want to stay right here for the rest of our lives! C-cut the end the jokes! Oh, all right. ...Let"s keep going.Big reason #1 why this ar sucks: Fake Gald. Come actually complete this place, we need to collect a full of fifteen Fake Gald. Except the first one here, gaining Fake Gald is totally random
. Friend may get one ~ beating a boss, and also you may get one native treasure chests. I think the drop rate increases in later locations of the dungeon, but that can be complete coincidence.So hey, there us a chest right alongside us in the cutscene, wasn"t there? Let"s open up that!
*
Welp.Big reason #2 why this place sucks: every treasure chests are locked until you have beat all adversaries in the area. The contents of this chests is random, and may contain anything from Gald (pretty common) to usable items to accessories to Fake Gald (super rare). The feels prefer later locations in the dungeon provide you much better stuff than earlier areas.So you"d think, okay, sure, if the sweetheart only offers you random pointless stuff but requires you come fight all enemies, and also later locations of the dungeons v bosses offer you far better chance the Fake Gald, might as well just disregard the beforehand random adversary fights and also rush v to the end, right?Nope. Factor #3: The dimensional rifts come the following area don"t generate until you have beat all opponents in the area! Which method that the lock on endowment chests is entirely pointless
and just means you need to backtrack through the area as soon as all opponents are dead. Game design!
*
*
The enemies approximately here aren"t very exciting. They"re constantly one of 3 groups: enemies that would typically be in the area, adversaries that would certainly be in the last dungeon, and like three opponents that are actually exclusive to this place.
*
*
*
Enemies space dead, which method we can advancement and open up the chest(s). I"ll skip over most of this after ~ the an initial room.
*
Entering the just warp in this area goes to:
*
You may have noticed that every one of these locations are areas we"ve remained in before. This leads into reason #4: the layout. Because they"re simply using stitched together locations from before, girlfriend will have actually no clue how any type of of these room actually associated unless you have a map or diagram.GameFAQs is to the rescue:
*
(http://www.gamefaqs.com/xbox360/945...eria/faqs/54060)This watch a little bit confusing, yet is actually not too bad. We begin at the bottom and also all paths are one-way.Thanks to just how the center section of this location is set out, it will certainly take you a total of at least 5 visits that this dungeon to check out every area once, yet only four visits are forced to meet and scan every opponent for the monster book. Unfortunately, this is not an issue.
*
And they didn"t even bother to appropriately section the locations off for the revisit here, ns am to run up against an invisible wall in that screenshot above.
*
Here"s part or maybe every one of the memory dungeon exclude, enemies.
*
*
Some of the chests space jokes, many thanks RNG.Imagine an ext rooms prefer these here, there yes, really isn"t also a suggest to display them off, they"re all locations we"ve currently seen but with a brown filter.Eventually, we will gain to a boss:
*
*
The bosses counting as different scans and also actually have various stats 보다 originally, and also remove every the in-battle events and also dialogue and also whatever, yet are otherwise the same as much as I have the right to tell. Very same movesets, exact same AI.
*
After defeating either Yeager or Schwann because that the very first time, a scene triggers:
*
*
Wh-what...?...The last fight caused a rift to open up in space...!
...! perhaps we have the right to go outside from here!Y-you cannot go outside! Th-the only means out is to make it all the way to the end, of course! The secret voice sounds a bit much more flustered 보다 usual. Looks choose we can acquire out of right here after all. Certain you"re not suggesting that we go back after comes this far? periodically the finest strategy is to run. It might be a an excellent idea come go back to recover our energy.If you leaving now, you"ll have to start native the start the next time you enter! execute you quiet aspire to such folly...?!If you decision to leave: We"re walking to step out because that a bit.W-wait... So, space we leave or not? Come on!Alas, they acquired away...If you stay: We"re walk to store going. H-huh...? You desire to store going? perform you really desire to have to start all over again from the really beginning? i don"t really check out why we require to ever come right here again... However if we don"t discover out that the voice is, Rita will be also scared to sleep in ~ night. W-what room you talking about?! room you speak you can just chalk it approximately ghosts and also forget around it? Th-there"s no such point as ghosts! Ah, good. Then we can acquire moving.Hee hee hee... I admire her courage...I actually perform take a quick trip outside to create the skit (since all audio in the memory dungeon gets an echo effect which is nice annoying), which forces me to start over native the beginning. Acquiring out right here isn"t as well terrible, just makes girlfriend redo 4 or five rooms, so let"s overlook that and jump straight back to where we were:
*
Skipping past many of these rooms...
*
This one is interesting since in the actual video game it"s only provided for a cutscene, way back as soon as we an initial met Barbos and Ioder. Right here we can actually run approximately on it. Weird priorities, although I intend they could have currently created the non-cutscene map prior to they realized they only required it because that a scene.
*
Two.
*
You sometimes acquire to hit battles like Estelle or Schwann with them being in her party as well, i m sorry is kinda neat and also silly.
*
These black color warps have actually some requirement to go v them, in this case you require to have finished the Giganto sidequest.
*
Like I stated before, assuming ns didn"t get extreme RNG, later locations have much better items than previously ones, therefore it would certainly be much much more efficient to simply run back here rather of fighting a million arbitrarily enemies.
*
Three.
*
Four. This is also a cutscene-exclusive room, i believe.
*
And earlier here is the end-of-dungeon locked warp, which needs the 15 Fake Gald:
*
*
End of run 1: 4 Fake Gald. This is in reality pretty good, on average you only seem come get roughly two per run.Fake Gald (thank fucking god) carries over between trips come this dungeon, yet everything else resets, including chests. A solitary run with this dungeon generally takes somewhere roughly an hour, ns guess.Let"s simply speed v this till we gain to interesting stuff again. Second run:
*
Here"s another of this cutscene-only areas, this time the scene in Baction through the Schwann reveal.
*
Five.
*
And end of run two, just one Fake Gald.Third run:
*
Sometimes girlfriend actually gain nice stuff from the arbitrarily chests!
*
This area is monster because, for some reason, you can"t open up the food selection here. No idea why. I believe it"s addressed in the PS3 version.
*
*
*
*
Fourth run:
*
*
*
*
*
Fifth run:
*
*
*
*
Yay, we"re finally done here! the course, the video game proceeds to troll me hard:
*
*
*
Running total: 18 Fake Gald in 5 runs, which is insanely good actually.So what actually is behind this locked warp?
*
*
*
...Then...can we gain out the the labyrinth from here? Or probably it leader to the soil of the dead?That is your very own choice.
ours choice...?
*
*
Aaack! Is this... Is this the one the book was referring to...?
*
Death will be much more than happy to take it you into her cold embrace. Hee hee hee...
we eat guys like that 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 personalities in tales of Symphonia.
*
*
*
He fights a lot prefer he did ago in Symphonia, and overall this is a pretty fun fight.
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
He"s additionally got his Mystic Arte, i m sorry as far as i remember was exclusive to the PS2 port of Symphonia.
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
But yeah, fun fight, not too hard however not a cakewalk either. It"s too bad this is component of such a terrible dungeon, really!
*
L-look in ~ that! her trickery doesn"t job-related on united state anymore! Now display yourself!! ...I said, present yourself...
*
*
..."Don"t think this is the end?" What"s this every about? I"m no sure, but it sound ta me prefer he"s gotta poor case of tart grapes. I guess this way we"re not v with him? but isn"t that an departure right increase ahead...? I"m not sure... Let"s go and see...
*
And v this, we have whatever we should do everything in the Coliseum!
*
Oh, and in case you wonder, the chests here are randomized crap, just like the remainder of the dungeon. Many thanks game.
*
*
*
*
Let"s gain out of here.
*
Phew... Say thanks to goodness.
*
Aww, I want to play a small more. Have to we come ago again? we can try a different route following time! You"re no funny! avoid it!
*
Hmmm... No idea on the one. A ghost, probably. Ns told you! There"s no such point as ghosts!! I"m certain it was simply some lame old mage that gets a absent from do illusions for people to obtain lost in! all right, let"s leaving it in ~ that, then. Good idea. Otherwise Rita"ll it is in in a rotten mood every week. But whaddaya think would make anyone wanna perform that? our money, maybe? No way... It"s pretty to check out the people is still complete of mysteries. Yes, ns agree.
*
I second that. We should go before we obtain yanked into another labyrinth. Okay, okay.

Ahhh, Memories
Apparently there"s one more scene if you"re insane enough to in reality go earlier in again, however I couldn"t get it to trigger. Wait wait! are you GOING ago INSIDE?! Yeah. Perform you mind? friend mind, don"t you? ...Yes. Us don"t should be here anymore, do we? It"s just an illusion make by some mage, right? What"s over there to be fear of? N-nothing, yet even so...Rita share my sentiments.A quick note top top the PS3 version of this dungeon, because I kinda ignored that. It"s largely the same with a couple of minor changes:- The Tison/Nan fight adds Clint into the fight.- A room with The Don is added between Zagi and Duke.- A room with Seifer is included between Estelle and Gigalarva.- A room with green Menace is added between Chimera and also Pterobronc.- A room v Bloody beak is included between Medusa and also Duke.It also feels like you obtain less Fake Gald in the PS3 version, however that might be fully random chance screwing me. Or perhaps they increased the drop price for the european 360 version or something. Who knows. (The PS3 variation is plainly based turn off the JP/US 360 version.)Going with the dungeon a couple times gained me a pair skits:
*
Skit: roughly the World, many thanks to Karol / Baldurdash the feels like we"ve been everywhere the whole world. I"d read around some the the areas in books, but we"ve gone to too many of areas I"d never heard of! Ah, ya gotta excellent the youthfulness...the sweet naivete! What? room you also old and withered to appreciate anything anymore? Oh! You"re terrible! i am as innocent an" pure as a newborn babe... Judy, you"ve been about the human being on Ba"ul, right? go you recognize most the the areas we went?
*
No, no at all.
*
There to be a many of locations I"d never seen before. See? Wasn"t the a an excellent idea to join Brave Vesperia? look how much we"ve come! ns feel favor I really have a sense of how big the world is now. It wasn"t that way in the castle. You see? Don"t be acquiring all cocky, Karol. It"s not prefer you had actually anything to do with it.
*
now ya know how I feel, kid! Come ta ol" Raven"s arms.
*
Misery loves company! Skit: The the strongest Guild
*
*
*
i don"t treatment how numerous enemies we"ve beaten, you guys are just too complete of yourselves! yet I don"t think any kind of enemy could stand increase to us at this point! See, also cute li"l Judith says so! ♥ however doesn"t this make you a little uneasy? gaining this strong... What perform you mean? What if anyone is fear of us, or no one desires to be all over near us...?
*
Or probably they"ll catch us, and put us in a cage for anyone to see!
*
I-I see... I hadn"t thought about that...
*
Come on, the would never ever happen! Hey, a life of high-end in a cage, human being attendin" ta mine every need! Doesn"t sound poor ta me!
*
...No matter how strong they get, some people never change... ...Heh heh... You"re one come talk, Yuri. Skit: inspect It Out! Look, look! ns filled up the Monster Book! Oooh! let me see! We certain have combated a lot of of various kinds of monsters. Yet it looks favor there space still a few blank pages left... I"m sorry... I don"t understand if I"ll ever be able to finish it... You"re no the only one functioning on it, though. Huh...? Right. That publication is the product of all our battles together.

*
That"s right, Karol. You can"t provide up!
*
We deserve to now likewise do this scene because we"ve discovered all towns and dungeons:
*
*
*
Yes. Ns was just thinking around all the different places we"ve travel to. Oh, I"m for this reason jealous!
*
Well, we continue to be away indigenous towns and also strange places, so... Oh, really? Yes... A carriage operation an inn would certainly look pretty out of ar in a city, don"t you think? Perhaps... Yes...and we continue to be away from dark forests, deep gorges, and the like... Such destinations are much too dangerous. Ah... ...Could you maybe tell a little about the various places you"ve been to? The areas I"ve been to? Ummm... Yes, please. I"d love to hear. Well, then... Very first off, there"s the capital......
*
...Wow. You"ve had quite a trip! Well, us still have a good ways left to go... Ah, it"s obtaining late... Oh! I"m sorry! I completely lost monitor of time! No, it"s okay!
*
Yes, that course. I"ll come again. Hee hee, i can"t wait to hear what wake up next! ♪Filling the whole world map also gets united state an achievement -- though this is technically pertained to map to fill rate, not town/dungeon discovery, however hey, nearby enough.Achievement/Trophy:
