Cracking the Code Cracking the Code
Uncover the secret of the Eidolon Wall.
After you come back from Terra: First, form a party with Dagger and visit Lani who is standing on Eiko’s back porch. Upon arriving Lani will run away.










Exit the village and return with anyone except Dagger or Amarant and talk to Lani twice. She mentions a secret at the Eidolon Wall.










The wall is now presented as a sort of side scrolling room and if you go all the way in one direction you’ll be back at the beginning. Go all the way in one direction and you will hear a chime. Now go back in the other direction. You need to do this, going back and forth, a total of 9 times hearing a chime each time.










On the 9th time your party’s HP & MP will be restored and all status ailments will be removed.










Now proceed back across the wall reading all the messages. There will be information about eidolons as well as messages that could be for Eiko. When you’re done return to Ifrit’s picture and an exclamation point will appear. Examine it and you’ll find a message for Dagger and her mother that states both their names.

Repair the machine at Mognet Central.

Mognet Central is the headquarters of the Mognet moogle mail service. It can only be accessed by a red, gold or a dark blue chocobo, and requires a Dead Pepper to locate. To repair the machine you need “Superslick”. In Alexandria, when you speak to Kupo at the Bell Tower, it will initiate a chain of letters which will reveal that Ruby has the object you need.












Letters
  • Kupo – Alexandria











  • Atlas – Burmecia











  • Mogryo – Black Mage Village











  • Kumool – Ipsen’s Castle











  • Mois – Qu’s Marsh, Entrance of Foosil Roo (Bring Quina in your team)











  • Noggy – Daguerreo











  • Kupo – Alexandria (Again)

Frog Wrangler Frog Wrangler
Successfully catch 99 frogs.

See “Going for the gold” fore more information.

Going for the Gold Going for the Gold
Successfully catch a golden frog.











Frog catching can be played at any Qu’s Marsh (you must have Quina in your party). Catching frogs powers up Quina’s Blue Magic spell Frog Drop, and can yield many rewards.

How to catch frogs











Quina can run around the marsh and catch a frog, showing its type. The player can then either keep the frog or release it. Quina cannot enter water and must catch the frogs when they are on dry or approach the dry. The frogs will always jump away from Quina towards the water, if she gets too close.

Leaving a male and female frog at each marsh ensures that the population will regenerate quickly, and leaving a golden frog will further boost the rate the frogs will spawn. There can be only one golden frog in-game at time, counting all four marshes.

Useful tip: Female frogs have a black stripe running the length of their bodies, which males lack. Females also have red feet while males have yellow. Frogs will disappear from the pond if single-gender groups are left behind on a marsh.

The Golden Frog











The golden frog can randomly spawn in one of the four marshes. The golden frog accelerates frog growth by lowering the maturity level requirements so for this achievement you should catch it only once and if you find it later in the game you should leave it behind with a male and female frog to reproduce more quickly.

Rewards











  • 2 Frogs: Ore
  • 5 Frogs: Ether
  • 9 Frogs: Silk Robe
  • 15 Frogs: Elixir
  • 23 Frogs: Silver Fork
  • 33 Frogs: Bistro Fork
  • 45 Frogs: Battle Boots
  • 99 Frogs: Gastro Fork and battle with Quale

See “It’s all in the cards III” for more information.

It's All in the Cards III It’s All in the Cards III
Win 100 Tetra Master matches. (Certain NPCs can be re-challenged to increase your win count after progressing through the game.)












Tetra Master is played between two players on a four-by-four square grid where cards are placed as the game progresses. Each card features four values written across the card, and may have arrows along the sides or in the corners.

Each player has five cards, neither knowing the other player’s hand. A coin-flip decides which of the two players shall begin. Before the game commences, up to six grid-blocks can be placed on the game grid randomly. These will blank that grid square out of game play. Blocks simply prevent a card from being placed in its grid square. Any arrow facing a grid block is useless.

  • The player who controls the most cards when all cards have been placed is declared the winner. The winning player may take one of the cards from the opposition’s set, but only one which was captured during the game
  • A game win is declared “perfect” if either player succeeds in controlling all of the cards at the end of a game. In this situation the winner claims all of his own cards and the opposition’s cards as his prize.
  • Both players finishing with an equal number of cards results in a draw.

 



Every card has four values, or stats. In the example card above, the card has the stats 0-P-0-1. Each stat relates to the card’s strength. The second value (P) is always an alphabetical value, while the other three stats increase on a hexadecimal range, meaning they can range from 0-9, then through letters A-F.

  • The first value is for the power of the card. (0 above)
  • The second value is for the battle class of the card. (P above)
  • The third value is for the physical defense of the card. (0 above)
  • The fourth value is for the magical defense of the card. (1 above)

Each of the stats for power, physical defense and magical defense increase on a hexadecimal scale, with 0 being the weakest and F being the strongest.

Table range of possible hit points:

Value Min Max
0 000 015
1 016 031
2 032 047
3 048 063
4 064 079
5 080 095
6 096 111
7 112 127
8 128 143
9 144 159
A 160 175
B 176 191
C 192 207
D 208 223
E 224 239
F 240 255

Whenever a card’s value is assessed a random value is chosen between the minimum and maximum numbers that correspond to the value.

Battle Class Stat

The second value on the card is the battle class stat. This value is not based on the hexadecimal scale above, but instead is one of four classes. This stat is represented by the letters P, M, X, and A.

  • P is a Physical battle class.
  • M is a Magical battle class.
  • X is a Flexible battle class.
  • A is an Assault battle class.

These all affect which stat the attacking card attacks. P will attack the Physical Defense stat, while M will attack the Magical Defense stat. The other two have more obscure effects as they are rarer. X will attack the lowest of the two defenses and A will attack the lowest value on the card.

Card Arrows

As well as its stat values, each card may have a set of arrows in any of eight directions. The arrows come into play when cards are in an attack situation. An attack on a card may only be made when an arrow on the challenging card is facing the resting card on the grid.
