Hi everyone,
i'm playing odin sphere leifthrasir, the remake of odin sphere that appeared this year for ps3 and ps4.
sinze i've managed to complete the first book, and i've finished the original game on ps2 as well, i imagine i'll be able to write something useful for us.
i'll restart the game from scratch again, and i'll take notes for stages, skill locations, etc. if you're interested, i can take notes in english, rather than spanish, witch is my primary language.
the guide, when finished, will contain:
*menus.
*shop lists.
*tips for inventory.
*tips for alchemy.
*detailed explanations of skills and how to assign shortcuts.
walkthrough, it'll include:
*stage specific problems and how to solve them.
*boss strategies?
*hidden skill locations.
*original mode guide and tips.

how long it will take to make the guide?
Unfortunately, a long time. i'm about to get married, i have my job, well you know, those changes take's away lots of free time.
I can promise, if the comunity is interested, i'll finish the guide sooner or later.

Well, you have at least one person who might want it. lol I haven't had time to go through the game, and when I do, it's hard to even remember exactly where I am since the acts, stages and whatnot all seem to blend together. lol I'd definitely love the guide!

Thumbs up

I would be very much interested in the guide. I'll even  donate when the guide is finnish. Damn it would be awesome...

Thumbs up

I would also be interested for the guide, so continue on making it

Thumbs up

Would also love a guide myself.

Thumbs up

great! then, it's decided!.
I'll start working on the guide, might post the first part once i complete it, so you can read it and help me improve it, gramar errors, wrong words, anything would be very welcomed.

I would be interested too, I haven't actually started playing the game yet but I've been meaning to, this might just be the push I need

Thumbs up

Awesome. I look so much forward to this...

MR. brunete, can I expect a guide for the original PS2 one? I haven't ps3 / ps4 and I want to play this so badly!
I managed to complete first book but it was really hard and I played without any guides / tips so I used cheats at times. Need to play it again but with complete menu / inventory / tips guide.

Thumbs up

@lirin.
definitely yes.
in the ps3 / ps4, original mode is the original ps2 game, you'll definitely get lists, tips, and stage specific tips as well.
I'll send you a pm regarding another topic.

@slj
About donations, it is not necessary, thanks so much, but it is enough reward if the guide makes things easier for you and the comunity.

Appreciating this a lot! and yeah, feel free to contact me whenever you wish. smile

@lirin.

hi everyone,
i have an example right here to show you how i plan to make the guide, of course, the real thing will be much more organized and i'll probably do the guide in HTML, so you can navigate more easily.

odin sphere leifthrasir.
Well guys, this is simply a test to see if you like the format of the guide.

valkirie: chapter 1.
place: raging battlefields.
number of important items: 4.
*stage map: buy in the shop in the first rest area.
*ice shot skill. received in a tutorial.
*beak drive skill. hidden in a room before second rest area.
needle strike skill: defeat the boss.

stage walkthrough.
area 1.
type of stage: sidescroller.
just go to the right to enter second area. there's also an object to destroy, you get a coin.
second area.
type: battle area.
just destroy the soldiers that will appear.
after clearing the stage, open the chest and pick up the items, then walk holding up. when the character stops walking, it means that you're in front of a door. press x to open it.

3rd area.
type: sidescroller.
upon entering this area, you will ear a sound. and a message will appear. this is a fozzon butterfly, and you will need to absorb it. just center the sound in your headphones, and hold r1.
There are things to break here as well, so break them and don't forget a chest somewhere around here!
to continue, just go to the right.
4th area.
type: battle.
more soldiers, you already know what to do here.
after clearing the area, you will receive a story text automatically.
after opening the chest and geting the items, look for a door and enter it.
important! how do you know if you've entered the door to the next area, and not the one where you came from?
lets see. in this case, we came from a sidescroller stage, and we went all to the right to enter this area. right?
after opening the door, just don't move. instead, use a single attack. if you hear the attack sound in your right headphone, it means you went back to the previous area. so, go right to enter 4th area again, and search for another door.
note: when you clear a battle stage and re-enter it, it will be empty and you will start directly in front of the door to go back to previous area.
lets continue.
area 5.
type: rest.
note: the music will change.
it is a sidescroller area, all rest stages are like this.
there are people who you can talk to, and a merchant to shop.
i'll give specific instructions in the full guide.
talk to the merchant and you get these two options.
buy.
sell.
shop list.
stage map.
price: 5.
mulberry seed:
price: 4.
healing tonic.
price: 16.
note: when you get a map, it will never appear again on the shop, so, you will only have the seed and the healing tonic to buy.

go right to continue into area 6.
area 6.
type: tutorial, mini-boss stage.
the music will change to the tutorial theme, and you will get your first skill!
go all to the right until you can use your attacks, and then look for a chest and attack it to get....
skill: ice shot.
description: gwendolin will fire several ice shots that can track enemies.
more about this in the full guide.
note: every time you get a skill, the game will pause and the skills upgrade menu will appear.
close the menu with circle several times, press l1 to access your skill list, and press x to use it.
go to the right and...
mini boss battle.
battle vs. unicorn knight.
attack list. coming up later.
after beating this thing, open the chest and advance to the next area.
oops, almost forgot. you will get a text story after defeating the mini-boss.
area 7.
type: sidescroller with enemies.
once you enter this area, a small group of soldiers and a fairy will attack you. watch out for the fairie's arrows. they float in the air, so press up plus square to attack upwards, gwendolin will jump after attacking, so you can continue the combo from there, marvel vs capcom style haha.
after killing the enemies, look for any breackable items to get some money and go right to continue to area 8.
area 8.
type: battle.
more soldiers, you know what to do.
after clearing the stage, you will get a text, and the usual chest.
important!
there are 3 doors on this area.
to get things easier, locate the door to previous area, enter it, and then re-enter area 8.
from the start, you have.
1st door: room where you can access the hidden room with the second skill.
2nd door: rest area, you need to go there to continue with the story.
3rd door: mini-boss battle.
lets see each of the doors, shall we?
1st door.
it is a normal sidescroller room, but it seems you can't go to the rightmost edge of the screen.
go all to the right, for several seconds, and then do this:
i suggest if this is your first playthrough, double jump in place to know how it sounds when gwendolin do a double jump, ear the sound of the landing, and the time she takes to land.
well, to get the skill.
do a double jump in place, but just when you do the second jump, move a little to the left. if done correctly, you will hear gwendolin took less time to land, and also the landing sound will be different.
now, double jump to the right and press r1 three times in mid-air, to go further forward with your jump. if done correctly, you will enter a new room.
you will know if you entered the room because you will hear your steps coming from the left and if you walk a little, the sound will go to the right headphone.
if you managed to enter the room, attack the chest to get a new skill.
skill: beak drive.
description: in the full guide.
now, go back, don't worry, you must fall, so go back all to the left until area 8.
area 8.
now, if you want, go to the 3rd door.
keep in mind that when entering this area after obtaining the skill, you will start at the door with the skill, not the one to go back to area 7.
if you don't want another mini-boss right now, just go to second door.
area 9:
type: mini-boss battle.
battle vs. unicorn knight.
kill it and go back to area 8.
now, go to the second door.
area 10.
type: rest.
another shop here.
shop list:
mulberry seed.
healing tonic.
defensive ring.
star pendant.
luck stone.

go all to the right to face your first boss.
note: when you're about to enter a boss battle or a trial stage, the game will ask you if you want to enter. actually, i don't know what the screen says but lets suppose it ask you to enter, end of discussion!

chapter 1 boss:
battle vs. raging dragon, belial
attack list.
not ready yet.
strategies. not ready yet.
lets use some stupid example so i can show you how i plan to list attacks and strategies.

attack list.
1). cheap trick.
description: belial will turn off your controller if his health is below 50% so your character can't move.
to counter it, just turn on your controller again!
2). ultimate cheapness.
description: belial will shutdown your console completely if his health is below 25% so you can't kill it.
to prevent this, just use a powerful attack when his health is around 30%. 26% is recommended to have more chances of success.
well guys, stupidity apart, this is all for now, hope to get real attacks and strategies to you soon!.

That definitely looks good to me! I've been meaning to pick up this game again, I just don't remember where I left off. lol

That really looks great man. Keep up the fantastic job. Can you hear when you pass a door?
As I wrote to you privately, I would gladly help with the layout by setting it up in html. I didn't thought this old game was that detailed. [wow]...

Thumbs up

Wondering if there's been any update on the guide? I'm picking up the game again after an extended break just to give myself something different to play, but so far, have no clue where to start other than that I know I'm on chapter 2. Still hoping for menus, etc... and I'm in another tutorial and have no idea what to do next. lol

Thumbs up

Well, I've gotten through the first alchemy tutorial... but can't get past the rest of them. Looks like mixing still has to be done manually... and I don't understand how the item menu is laid out at all.

I look very much forward to the guide.

Thumbs up

Despite the problems, I'm loving the game so far! Presentation is great, and the story is fantastic as well.

Thumbs up

Still stuck in the same spot. lol Wish there was a more detailed guide, or an easier way to mix potions!

Thumbs up

Chapter 2 is completed! Picking alchemical materials to mix together is tricky, but doable... love this game!

Thumbs up

hi guys!
Well, new home, new life, new updates soon!.
After completing the first book again, i'm ready to continue the guide!.
It'll be presented in HTML format, i already have the menu structure for the options!
I'll be back in a few days....
Chapter 1 will be completed entirely and the update also will contain chapter 2.
