Spoils of the golem room...



  • I just wanted to post some tips that Slayer didn't mention on his great site. For those who don't know, there is a special maze under Cademia where you can find a sapphire book. Go down to the slums, and find a room full of mushrooms. If you click on the largest mushroom to the left, a skeleton will fall out--search its body. Go up to the next room to the north-east, and search the eastern wall. There you will find a secret chamber. Go down the ladder. Fiddle with the levers until you can see the golem guarding the laboratory. To kill it easily, you can use a ranged weapon through the porticullis, such as an arrow or a mystic arrow. Now open the porticullis. There are three valuable things you'll find here:
    � A Sapphire book
    � A chest full of valuable alchemical elements
    � A health ring
    You can find the health ring by going to the bedroom, searching the drawers, and examining the clothing.

    Some other items of interest that I found out when I finished my old game were:
    � You don't need to go to the harpy cave; find lots of eggs, odd helms for your whole party, and the source of kesh in the secret chamber below Kosha.
    � If you have Alastor's gator boots and/or the Omen's ring, make your party wait before entering swampy areas, so they don't get harmed.
    ��It really helps to use Pandora's box to up your training points. You'll become unbeatable.
    � The building you can buy in Cademia isn't all that its cracked up to be. I can't move beds, shelves, or chairs, so I really don't consider it worthwhile.
    � Set your party's characters to "attack nearest," so they don't make you do all the work. The exception to this is Timon, who is a weakling.
    � Don't ever divide food within your party if you've baked bread for the Honor Jinrai mission!

    Have fun.

  • You'll also notice in the golem cave is a book (if I remember correctly) that describes Machaon, a golem hunter from a few hundred years back. If you search for a threads with a username of that, you can find the earliest posts I made on this board. ;)

    Machaon was the mage who created the golems in Cademia, and the cave was his house (I think that the bones in the room with the 'shrooms were his).
    The golem hunter's name was Semilus (I think).

    luck is beating the odds, bad luck is when they are the odds of having something bad happen to you.



  • Hmm... I stand corrected. Kinda shows how long it's been since I've played this game, huh?

  • Interesting. Goes to show how really deep Cythera really is. On a note of nostalgia, I can even remember the friday Cythera came out. I downloaded it only 2 hours after its release. :-D
