Walkthrough - FAQ/Walkthrough
King's Field: The Ancient City Walkthrough Author: Seorin E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Creation Date: 04-07-2002 Version: Final Revision History Final - Big changes this time and also the final changes. I'm pretty sure this now contains all the information in the game. I'm also pretty sure that the vast majority of the people that read this can understand everything with no additional help. I've written answers to every question I've received more than one e-mail about. Special thanks to Smoothwind, XENOLadybug, and KANE for the final bits of information I'm putting in. With that said I would just like to ask anybody that feels the need to e-mail me your question to PLEASE look for the answer inside the detailed walkthrough or the Item Location FAQ first. 90% of all the e-mail I get for KF:TAC is asking a question that I've already answered. Sometimes it's even a question in the CSP/General FAQ. I don't mind answering questions if you're really stuck, but it can take awhile to get a response from me and anything you should ever want to know can be found on GameFAQs. 1.4 - Another FAQ questions added, new final boss strategy (thanks KazanMC!) 1.3 - Added the location of a magic crystal (thanks to aeon009!) 1.2 - Added a few websites that asked to also host the walkthrough 1.1 - Added the Hand Axe location (thanks, Novakaiser!) This document copyright 2002 Nick Emmerich This FAQ is free for personal use only. Anybody wishing to include this guide (or any part thereof) anywhere besides GameFAQs must first contact the author. If any part of this guide is found reproduced anywhere besides GameFAQs without having received written permission from the author, legal action will be taken. Introduction: I actually intend for this to be three documents in one. It is a Common Stuck Point (CSP) and General FAQ, a LITE Walkthrough, and a fully detailed walkthrough. I do not wish to include spoilers of any kind, but I DO wish to provide a walkthrough for those of you who have already gone through the game one time and want to use a walkthrough the second time to make sure you get everything. This is my reason for including the three different walkthroughs. If this is your first time through the game, use the CSP FAQ to give you a boost when you need it. If this is your second time, you will find the LITE walkthrough very helpful and small enough to print out. If you're really, REALLY stuck and you simply cannot figure out what you need to do next or where a particular item is, use the detailed walkthrough for step-by-step instructions on where to go and what to get. Also note that, even in the detailed walkthrough, sometimes I will simply tell you to explore. Usually this is in a very small area or a very easy to navigate area and what order to go to the various points in isn't really important. In these cases I will tell you exactly what you are looking for when you explore. Another point of interest is that I have not included everything in this walkthrough. All the important things I have tried to include (if I'm missing any, let me know!) and anything that you only find a few of in the entire game I have tried to include (though I have missed a few things, i.e. the Hand Axe I somehow instantly forgot where I picked it up and I know I forgot a keystone somewhere). Things like herbs, herbal liquid, forest root, etc. I do not mention and if an entire area includes nothing but those items, I do not tell you to explore that area. It is for this reason, and for your own enjoyment, that I strongly encourage you to play the game on your own and ONLY use the walkthrough when you REALLY need it! /rant on A final note about this specific walkthrough is that it is a walkthrough only! I do NOT mention monsters you'll be fighting (except bosses), I do NOT warn you about most traps in the game, and in no way do I ever try to prevent you from dying! Death is part of King's Field. The first time you fall in lava (veterans know what I'm talking about) shouldn't make you curse, it should bring a smile to your face! I smiled and thought to myself why I love these games. From Software does a GREAT job getting you IN the game and making you feel like you are the valiant warrior adventuring forth into these perilous dungeons. With no fear of death, you are no longer a valiant warrior but instead you're playing a Final Fantasy game where you just walk from point A to point B and enjoy watching your graphically intense character walk around the screen. I will tell you this: SESO (Save Early Save Often!). I will not remind you to save. If you come to the realization that you've just done something that you can't withstand having to do over again, go to the nearest save point (no matter how far it is) and SAVE! KF:TAC isn't as bad as other King's Field games in this respect, but death still can lurk around ANY corner (as can poison, darkness, curse, silence, MUMMIES!!, etc). I will never tell you to do something that will get you killed, but I'm not going to warn you against it either. You will enjoy the game more when you allow the music, the graphics, and the gameplay to draw you in and make you feel like you ARE the main character. If I gave away all the surprises in the game, you wouldn't feel like that anymore. You wouldn't even need to play the game, you could just read the walkthrough and experience it that way! /rant off Please, if anybody reading this walkthrough finds it on ANY website (besides the websites listed below), let me know as soon as you can! I worked hard to gather the information for this walkthrough and write it up and all I ask is that I be contacted before my work is posted on another website. If you find this walkthrough on a website not listed below, I have not been asked. Please help me protect my work! These are the following sites that have permission to host my walkthrough: GameFAQs (which will ALWAYS have the most updated version) Gamespot Cheat Code Central Neoseeker PSXCodez Lastly, if anything in this walkthrough is found to be inaccurate, PLEASE e-mail me! If you find my writing style difficult to read or otherwise have problems with this walkthrough, please e-mail me, as this is the first walkthrough I have ever written. Enjoy! ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Common Stuck Point (CSP) and General FAQ Q: Help! Where do I find ___? A: Please check my Item Location FAQ Q: I've gone everywhere that I can, where do I go next? A: The LITE Walkthrough is probably the best place to find your answer. Q: I'm missing the ___ key, where do I find it? A: Please check my Item Location FAQ Q: The keystone looks like it would lower the bridge, but when I try and use it on the pedestal to the right of the bridge I get a "Nothing Happens" message. Is this the right keystone? A: All keystones work for all pedestals. This game is very picky about use of items. Try using it again from a different angle and it should work. Q: What do I do with the icon of healing? A: Place it on the altar of healing in the room where you fought the giant spider. You might have to try it from different angles a few (anywhere from 10 to 372) times to get it to work. This one really doesn't like being placed. Q: Where is the second life rock/widda egg/release stone? A: Please check my Item Location FAQ Q: I killed the fat blob monster in the fire cavern, now what? A: The refinery is now thawed – a little too thawed – go check it out Q: I keep dying in the area with the 4-armed knights, how do I get past it? A: It helps to shoot the 4-armed knights with arrows/bolts. Aim for the head (all creatures take more damage when hit in the head). There is a spot you can stand where the knights will continually try to physically attack you, but you are just out of their reach (stand in the doorway), standing there is a good idea. If all else fails, do it later. You don't need to do this until you get Serrak's Key anyway. Q: I beat 2 of the 4-armed knights, where do I go now? A: when you exit the room with the second 4-armed knight, drop off the ledge to the left. Q: I got to the end of the passage of light, now I can't get back! Where do I go? A: Look for the King's Key on the ground next to the skeleton. Q: The dwarf told me he would go back to his quarters, where are those? A: It's in the Earth Folk Area, where you found the Frostbite sword. Go up the hill as if you were going to head to the refinery and stop at the top of the hill. Now turn left and go up a little ramp. He's in there. Q: What do I do with the second strange egg (a.k.a. widda egg) I found? A: Give it to the man who won't let you into the room where you got the icon of fire. He gives you a crystal vial. Q: What do I do with the second rock of life I got? A: Go upstairs in the temple with the healing spring outside and trade it to Chad for a crystal vial. Q: Where can I find the wavecrasher? A: Please check my Item Location FAQ. Q: Where is the second release rock? A: Please check my Item Location FAQ. Q: I tried using arrows on the 4-armed knights, but the wyverns keep shooting fireballs at me. Is there any other way? A: Yes. Wait. By the time you actually NEED to go through the passage of light you can easily walk up to each knight and thwack them with your favorite sword, healing when they manage to damage you enough that you need it. Last time through the game I did this area at level 46 and the knights could barely scratch me. Q: I tried to open ___ but it won't open! How do I open it? A: It opens from the other side or not at all. Find a way around. Q: What does placing the icon of fire do? A: It Lights up the surrounding area. Q: If I look up from the bridge that's not completely lowered I see a statue holding something light. What is it and how do I get it? A: It's a torch – a very decorative torch. Look at her from the floor above and you can see it clearly. You don't ever get a torch in this game. Q: A guy keeps asking for poison. Where do I get it? A: Use a crystal vial on the poison fountain way back at the beginning. Q: How do I become Kingly? A: Wear the Ring of Wisdom. Q: I found a frozen dwarf! How do I thaw him? A: Keep exploring until you find the fire cavern. It's at the top floor of the frozen area. You will need to walk across a small ledge made of ice to get there. Q: Where do I find the Forest Folk Key? A: There isn't one. Those chests are opened using Zastari's Key. Q: Where is Zastari's Key? A: Please check my Item Location FAQ. Q: How do I use sword magic? A: Every weapon, in my experience, has sword magic. First of all, the weapon must be level 3. Second of all, there are 2 types of sword magic. Most weapons have type A (they just fire a little slice of wind off into the distance). Perform Type A by pressing triangle as the weapon swings by on the screen. Some (many of the elemental based weapons) weapons have the very special type B magic. To perform this quickly press X and then Square, then press Triangle while the weapon is on the screen. Q: How do I swim? A: You don't. You really just walk underwater and hope that you can make it out before your air gauge runs out. Don't worry, when you start drowning you always lose HP at the same rate. That means that, while you died instantly when you explored behind David Bunch's shop, your HP are going to increase a lot and drowning won't be so bad. As you level up your air gauge will start to decrease a lot more slowly, too, and you will eventually find a necklace called the water talisman that allows you to stay underwater even longer. For the time being, though, ignore that water behind David Bunch's shop: there's another way around. Q: How do I get the Moonlight Sword? A: See the detailed walkthrough. The information is under this title: Dead kings, confusing messages Q: What does the fortune bracelet do? A: It doubles gained exp when worn. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- LITE Walkthrough City Ruins -Items: Leather Helmet, Leather Boots, Leather Gloves, and Club -Shoot the mushroom later with a fireball or wind cutter Healing Temple & Surrounding Areas -Items: Short Sword, Leather Vest, Leather Shield, Wooden Shield -Make sure to collect all the antidotes you can -There is a secret door inside the temple Mine -Find the pickaxe in here to break barrels and barriers -One Rock of Life is by some poison water -Another Rock of Life is in a cave filled with poison -Don't Miss The Arm Guards and a couple Earth Rocks First Area Wrap-Up -Give the Rock of Life to the sick mother -Her daughter gives you fire magic -Don't miss the Clarity Bracelet -Chad Breshears wants your other Rock of Life Deeper Into The Temple -Fireball can burn webs -Inspect the locked door, and then talk to Lee to get the key -Don't miss the Water Crystal by the Altar of Healing Miner's Graveyard -A fiery sword is behind a secret door -You will need to burn a web in a wall to get a light crystal -Other Items: Iron Boots, 3 Release Stones, Icon of Healing -You can only get 1 release stone after you find the need for it -The Icon of Healing must be placed on the Altar of Healing Behind David Bunch's Shop -Don't miss the morning star and the leather skirt -Do what the old man asks for the rusty key -Take the caretaker's map from the old man's shack -You can now break the barrels in David Bunch's Shop -You can also probably afford to buy the wind crystal Down The Well -You need to close one gate at the bottom and open another -Don't leave without the Bone Arms -Grab a water crystal on your way out Disarming the Arrow Towers -Knight Greaves are hidden off to the right -You will need to take the binding crown from the right, too -Items on the left: Buckler, Plate Helm, Red Guidestone, Hand Axe Past the Arrow Towers -Items: Knight Sword, Gauntlets, Iron Breastplate Guardians -You can't kill the guardian just yet -Items: Forest Carver, Chain Mail Center Tower 3F -You will need to get the bow -Buying arrows wouldn't hurt Kill the Guardians -Get 2 binding crowns, a keystone, and an earth crystal Back to Center Tower 3F -Get a Magic Crystal, Scale Mail, and Iron Boots in the tunnels -Through the "gate" are the expedition key, Wise Man's Fruit, a Knight Shield, and a Long Sword.

Explore everywhere in this area. -To get the boots you can see from the top of the wall you will need to jump off the wall and make your way around. -To get the mushroom that you can see sitting on top of a partially broken wall you will need to hit the mushroom with a spell or an arrow. You will get both later in the game. Items: Leather Helmet, Leather Boots, Leather Gloves, Club Healing Temple -------------- When you're done in town, exit and head left towards the healing temple. When you get there you will want to explore the cave on the left first and pick up the short sword and leather vest while you're there. Next, head inside the building. Upstairs is Chad Breshears, but I advise that you not talk to him until you have the second life rock. Head down the stairs in the back-left and open a secret door to get the Leather Shield inside. Leave the building and turn left. The cave on the far left is the mine. To the right of that is a save point. To the right of that is a path leading to a couple houses. Save if you want, then go to the couple houses. There is a shield inside the first house. Talk to the people there and explore the cave in back for several antidotes (these are important). Then head for the mine. Mine ---- Inside the mine take 2 lefts to find a healing spring. From there head left across a log and then head right at the sign. When you encounter a sign, break it. When you encounter wooden boards, break them with a pickaxe. Head left when you are able to and grab the arm guards. Then backtrack and head right instead. This will take you back to the entrance. Head back across the log and go left this time. Pull the lever in the wooden building to call the lift, and then ride the lift down to the bottom floor. At the poison water, take the far right path and grab an earth stone. The middle 2 paths are empty so now take the far left path and grab the rock of life. Climb up over the rubble to exit. Head right into the poison caves. Find and kill the gigantic red slime for another rock of life. Exit the mine. Magic, yay! ----------- Go back to the house and give a rock of life to the sick mother. She's snobby and ungrateful and will never thank you, but at least her daughter gives you a fire crystal. Don't use it yet. Take the pickaxe to the house in back and explore everything in that house. Make sure to get the clarity bracelet from behind the house. Equip it as soon as you get it, then go ahead and use your fire crystal. Crystal vial, yay! ------------------ Head back to the healing temple, go upstairs and trade Chad your second rock of life for a crystal vial. While you're up here, fireball the dragon flower (you can see it if you turn around and look down from where Chad stands) and head downstairs to collect it. Fire! Fire! Fire! ----------------- Burn the web on the door on the right. Go through the door and down some stairs, and then burn several more webs. At the fork you can go right to a save point or left to an NPC. When you're ready attempt to open the door leading into the room in the middle, then talk to the NPC again to get the key. Use the key on the door (it's difficult to line up, you may have to try several times) and open it up. Boss: Big, evil, nasty spider I find it easiest to just fireball him to death, strafing behind the door when he gets ready to spit web at me. When he's dead, search his room for a water crystal, then exit the room and go down the hallway ahead. Miner's Graveyard ----------------- Enter the first door on the right. Grab the treasure chests to the left and right, then enter the graveyard proper. Go down the stairs and into the room on the right. Search the back wall of that room for a secret door. Search the grave behind the secret door for the best weapon you'll find for awhile: the fiery sword. Head back upstairs. Explore the upstairs. Note that if you don't drink the poison water, Mista Fopa won't warn you not to (bastard! Warn me BEFORE I drink it, not after!). In that same room with the poison water there is a hole in the wall. Torch the web down that hole (use a fireball) and then head back to the hallway in front of the save point near the spider room to collect a light crystal. When you're done exploring upstairs drop down the hole in the jail cell on the right in the far room. Grab the iron boots here, then drop down and grab a release stone. Go out the door to this room. Explore left if you want (it leads to the shroom room). When you're ready, keep going forward and look for a release stone. When you go through the gate you will be near David Bunch's shop. Pay him a visit if you like. Keep exploring down here and above ground at the opposite side. -Grab the Iron Helmet behind the barrels by David Bunch's Shop. -Grab the leather skirt around the side of the house -Kill all the monsters for the old man to get the key to his shack -Break a box on the cliff for the morning star -The caretaker's map is in the old man's shack -At this point, if you've been saving up, selling excess equipment should get you enough money to buy the wind crystal for 2500. Do so ASAP. Mmmm… healing water ------------------- Go back into the miner's graveyard and use the 2 release rocks on the locked door near the poison fountain and the old man. Inspect the door on the other side of the room and then talk to the old man for another release rock. Go unlock the door and grab the icon of healing inside. Use the icon of healing on the altar of healing in the giant spider room to activate the healing spring in front of the healing temple. Go heal and fill up your vial. I think I broke my legs ------------------------ You should be a high enough level to survive a jump down the well in town (125 damage approximately). Go ahead and jump down and use the healing water you just collected to recover from the fall. Once inside you need to jump down to the very bottom of the water. Close the open gate and open the closed gate, then RUN back to the top to catch your breath. Use herbs if you start to drown. When the water drains, search around on the bottom for a secret door. Behind the door you will find the bone arms. Now exit this well. The only way out will lead past a water crystal (grab it!) and behind David Bunch's Shop. Where are all those arrows coming from? ---------------------------------------- Go back to the spider room and head towards the miner's graveyard. Instead of entering the graveyard, though, keep going straight. When you reach a room with a hell of a lot of firing arrows, turn right. Now enter the door on the right and search the room for a secret compartment containing Knight Greaves. Exit that room and go straight down the hall. Take a look at all the statues with square heads. Find the one with a binding crown on it. Take the binding crown and RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN all the way back to the place with the firing arrows. Now go left instead of right. Explore this area thoroughly. -You can find the Hand Axe here -Note the Engineer's Door here -The room with the spiders in it has a secret door containing a very good buckler -There is a stairway behind some barrels in the room upstairs. At the bottom of the stairs is a switch. Flip it to open up the gate that frees the dog. Grab the red guidestone from where the dog was. -There is a stairway behind one of the doors. Climb the stairs and then jump off onto another set of stairs. Flip the switch at the bottom of the stairs to turn off the arrow trap and grab yourself a plate helm. Turn off the 4 switches at the top of the stairs to stop all the arrows from shooting. More stuff ---------- Enter the door behind where the arrows were shooting. Ignore the door on the left for now and explore straight ahead for some new stuff. You will get the Knight Sword, Gauntlets, and Iron Breastplate (so you can take off that skirt and become a belly dancer!). Large, moving rocks that want to harm you (Guardians) ----------------------------------------------------- Now go back and enter the door you passed up a moment ago. Place your binding crown onto the statue on the right so you can get past the guardian. At the end there is a large door in front of you and a small door on the left. The door on the left leads to a save point. Go up the stairs to the left of that small door. Explore everywhere up those stairs. -Make sure to get the Forest Carver and the Chain Mail. Now go through that large door in the middle. In the name of all that is pure and good, ignore the wyverns! ------------------------------------------------------------- You are now in Center Tower 3F. Go down the stairs, turn left, and enter the first door on the left. Explore here to find an NPC that gives you the bow and sells stuff. Buy some arrows. Piercing trauma --------------- Go back to where you placed the binding crown and take both binding crowns off the statues. Fire 3-4 arrows AT THE HEAD of each Guardian. Collect the Earth Crystal and Keystone from where they were standing. Time to traverse tunnels ------------------------- Now go back through the large door, down the stairs, and left. Pass up the doorway to where you got the bow and enter the door on the far end. Explore all around this area. -Eventually it leads back to Center Tower 1F on the other side of the break in the ledge. -There is a magic crystal in here -There is some scale mail behind a secret door at the end of the left tunnel -You can also get Iron Boots here, but the Knight Greaves are better What do widda and the expedition key have in common? ---------------------------------------------------- Don't bother with the bridge just yet. Go in the door at the top of the stairs instead. Explore this area thoroughly. -Break a box to find Wise Man's Fruit -Find the Knight Shield in a chest -Find the Expedition Key on a corpse -Find the Long Sword in a chest locked with the Expedition Key -You can now open the expedition chest in the first city, but it only contains a spider armband, which is useless. Unlock! Unlock, I said! Aw, cmon! --------------------------------- Go back to the bridge and try as many times as it takes to properly position yourself to place the keystone in the pedestal on the right. When that's finally done, cross the bridge and go left across another bridge and through a door. ALIEEEEENNN!!! -------------- Go up the stairs on the left and into the hall on the right. Use your divine light spell liberally in here and explore the dark area. -You will find a dark crystal, a wind
