The Complete Guide to Phantasy Star III

Walkthrough: Third Generation Ending



Requirements

The second half of the third generation quests are all the same. At this point your party should have:

If you don't have all these then please go back and start with a character-specific walkthrough.

Travel to Frigidia

Airport in Frigidia

Take the party to Frigidia, with the Aero Parts and Laya's Pendant this should be an easy trip. Once arriving in Frigidia walk to the nearest airport. There are two places which are now accessible: the town of New Mota and the floating castle of Skyhaven.

New Mota (Optional)

New Mota

Technically the town of New Mota is an optional trip, but it's well worth making. There is a council of elders that reveal the history of the Alisa III. The shops here also sell some very powerful weapons and armor.

Skyhaven

Skyhaven on map

Walk through the castle to reach the elders of Skyhaven. The elders tell the party to assemble the legendary weapons: Orakio's Sword, Miun's Claw, Siren's Shot, Lune's Slicer, and Laya's Bow. After that travel to Sage Isle to learn the word of power before finally returning here. Luckily, Lune's Slicer and Laya's Bow are already in the party's inventory. Inside the Skyhaven dungeon are Aqua Parts for Wren. Go retrieve them then leave Skyhaven. Assembling the remaining three legendary weapons is a fairly small task. Miun's Claw can not be retrieved without Orakio's Sword, and Siren's Shot is on Sage Isle so the first weapon to find is Orakio's Sword.

Travel to Landen

Dock in Landen

The best route back to Landen from Skyhaven is first to fly to the northwest corner of Frigidia and take the palace to Elysium. Once in Elysium hop into the nearest airport and fly to the northeast corner to take the palace to Landen. The only dock in Landen is right next to the passage to Elysium anyway. Walk into the dock to transform Wren to an Aquaskimmer.

Sunken Palace

Sunken palace on map

Sail to the sunken palace, near Yaata, and Wren will transform into a submersible. The sunken palace is small and the only item there is Orakio's Sword. Unfortunately, taking Orakio's Sword also releases Dark Force from his 1,000 year slumber. After releasing Dark Force the main character will learn the Megido technique. Leave the sunken palace and travel to the southeast corner of Landen to take the palace to Aridia.

Aridia

Miun

In Aridia, Miun will be standing just north of Hazatak. Talk to her and she says "The black sword! Orakio, you've returned! I'm so glad to meet you again before I...." then collapses. She leaves behind Miun's Claw. Take it and head to the northeast corner of Aridia to take the palace to Aquatica.

Travel to Sage Isle

Sage Isle on map

Once arriving in Aquatica, go to the dock near Rysel and transform Wren to an Aquaskimmer. Sail east to Sage Isle, look for a small island with a single cave on it.

Sage Isle

Meeting Siren in Sage Isle

Enter the cave and follow the passage north. When the passage splits go east and then south to find Siren. He confesses "I fought Laya many long centuries ago. I nursed my hatred and attacked Layan people. But on Sage Isle I found that the Layans are not our real enemies. I am sorry for my mistake." then collapses. He leaves behind Siren's shot. Take it and travel to the west side of the cave to meet the elders. The elders teach the party the word Nei and then give the Grantz technique to Mieu. Leave the cave and head back to Skyhaven.

Sage Isle

Return to Skyhaven

Return to Skyhaven

There are two routes from Sage Isle to Skyhaven. The most direct is to go southwest to Aridia and then southwest again to Frigidia. However, there is only one airport on Aridia so this route requires a lot of walking (which means a lot of battles). The other option is to go southeast to Draconia, southwest to Terminus, and finally west to Frigidia. There are airports near all these exit so it may be slightly faster. Either way, once back in Skyhaven return to the elders and they bless all the legendary weapons with the word Nei. Equip the Nei weapons and leave Skyhaven. Fly east to Terminus. Before the last dungeon it would be advisable to visit any technique redistribution shop for the final time and max out Gires for every party member with healing spells.

City of LaShute

LaShute on map

The only city on Terminus is the floating city of LaShute. This city is corrupt and terribly evil, not to mention huge. Talking to the townspeople reveals their sinister plot to lure Rhys into moving the moons to awaken Lune and Siren so they would start another war. All the way in the back of the city is Orakio's twin brother Rulakir. Hatred keeps Rulakir alive after 1,000 years, he attacks the party when they arrive.

Fight vs. Rulakir

Rulakir

Rulakir is guarded by a row of Murafires and Azufires. Luckily, Kara can usually take them all out with her first attack. So in the first round have Wren and Laya/Gwyn attack Rulakir. The main character and Mieu can't attack Rulakir until the fires are defeated so hope Kara attacks before them. In the first round you can have Mieu cast Fanbi on the main character shorten the fight a little. Rulakir casts a nasty Tsu technique that can do 40-60 hit points of damage to every member of the party. Have Laya/Gwyn cast Gires often because her attack is the weakest. Rulkir has 1500 hit points and should be defeated in a few rounds.

LaShute Dungeon

Location of Dark Force LaShute Dungeon

This dungeon is filled with some powerful enemies. If the party is badly injured it may be a good idea to turn back and rest before trying this dungeon. However, it is a long walk out of LaShute so it might be best to press on. Dark Force is located in a treasure chest along the eastern wall.

Fight vs. Dark Force

Dark Force

If Laya/Gwyn has Gires and Fanbi maxed out then this is a really easy fight. Since her attack is the weakest she should be used to cast Gires every round because Dark Force attacks with the Tsu technique, delivering 30-50 hit points of damage to every member of the party. In the first round, or when party HP is high, she should cast Fanbi on the main character. Fanbi stacks and after a couple rounds the main character will do an incredible amount of damage.

Dark Force is actually three opponents: right hand, left hand, and body. The left hand is the weakest, with only 300 hit points, so have every member of the party attack it in the first round. The left hand should be easily defeated after one round so for the next few rounds have everyone except Laya/Gwyn attack the right hand. It has 1200 hit points and will take 3-4 rounds to defeat. Dark Force delivers 30-50 hit points of damage to everyone each round and Laya/Gwyn's Gires technique at full force heals about that much. You will have 2-3 backup healers depending on the main character if needed. Once the right hand is slain the only thing left to attack is the body. The body has 8000 hit points so it will take a while to defeat if you haven't stacked Fanbi on the main character.

The End?

Is this the end of the game? Sure is. If you're looking for more, here are a few suggestions:
