Nam Cobanda Island: Rita's Miska Scholar title
You must have access to the town of Arniun before you can do this trick. Start at Nam Cobanda Island by talking to the Kowz behind the desk with all the tables around it to trigger a scene. Rita will want to take a test to get the Doctoral Degree. The only way to take the test is for her to find five books:
- At Halure in the Mayor's House. Look at the book shelf.
- At Capua Torim in Fortune's Market HQ. Look at the bookshelf.
- At Heliord in the Investigation Room. Look on the left side of the room.
- At Mantanic in the Inn. Look at the bookshelf.
- At Aurnin in Aurniun's HQ. Look at Flynn's dresser.
Once you have all the books, go back to the Kowz and take the test. You will be quizzed on past Tales series of games. It does not matter if you pass or fail. You still get the title ether way.
Nam Cobanda Island: Alternate costumes
When you gain access to Nam Cobanda Island, play thou the play sub-event. Yuri, Rita, Estellise, and Karol will gain a costume title. To start the sub-event, walk to the stage in the gymnasium and talk to he man standing there. Then, just watch the funny scene and gain the titles at the end.
Sands Of Korgoth: Easy experience
In the Sands Of Korgoth immediately after Mantiac, stock up on Holy Bottles and Dark Bottles. Make your way to the Oasis save point. This save point is particular, as you will automatically heal all health and TP with it. From there, go north and run around with the Holy Bottle until night falls. Once it does, turn on the Dark Bottles. This will draw out all the monsters. The ones to look for are the little starfish-like monsters (fairly easy to spot). They run very fast towards you. Engage in battle with them. You will receive 800 experience points for each one defeated. You can easily catch between six to eight of them per night. Nights last for about three minutes, resulting in about 4,800 to 6,400 experience points every time night falls. This is an easy way to level up quickly early in the game.
Instead of manually spamming Tidal Wave with Rita, try this method. It works almost as well and you do not have to do anything. Include Rita, Raven and Estelle in your party. The fourth member can be anyone with the skill "Item Thrower". Turn off all other Artes for them, so that they are only using "Tidal Wave", "Tempest", and "Holy Rain", respectively. For the battle strategy, set whoever has "Item Thrower" to defend, watch TP, and no over limit or fatal strikes. For the Rita and Estelle, set them to target different enemies, full attack and Artes, Artes only, keep formation, no items, over limit level 1, and no fatal strikes. Do the same for Raven, except do not use any over limit for him. As for special equipment, equip Blue Dice on Raven and the character with "Item Thrower". Equip Rita and Estelle with Risky Rings. Before the battle, have everyone set the "Minimum Damage" skill. Also make sure you have items to restore TP, such as Orange Gel. Also, make sure the battle difficulty is set to hard or higher for the Grade multiplier. Go just outside of Zaphias and link encounter either the plant or mushroom enemies so you have at least six enemies in battle to keep the over limit above level 1. Turn on the battle strategy, and there you go. It should last roughly twenty minutes and at the end you will receive about 800 Grade, with no work on your part.
