Water Dragon Isle – Home World
To reach this island back home, you must talk to the fisherman on the pier at Arni Village. He will take you to Water Dragon Isle for a small fee. Once there, make use of the lily pads to get across and claim an AquaBall, IceBlast, and Iron from the chests. Moving on to the next area.
If you want to obtain Razzly’s level 7 tech (Raz-Flower) later on in the game, which is required for the triple-tech “Delta Force” and the achievement “Deadly Delta” make sure that:
- You have agreed to save Kid in Part 07
- You saved Razzly from the Pentapus in Part 08
- You did NOT take Razzly in your party in the battle against the Hydra in Part 08
Note: Taking Razzly in your party or someone else for this part does not influence whether or not you can obtain her level 7 tech. Taking her to your party will provide a bit more dialogue, however, as she loses her sister, Rosetta. Also, note that killing dwarves in order to waste time as advised in many other guides also has no effect (one of your characters will simply say that they wish they had arrived sooner).
The dwarves also drop ElectroBolt when defeated; it’s a nice element so try to stock up. As for loot, east of the entrance is a Nimble. Climb the center ladder now.
Proceed forward a bit and you’ll be confronted by an army of dwarves. For this battle, hitting all elements such as MeteorShower and Gravitonne is the way to go. If you have access to any hit-all green techs, use them too.
The dwarves will fall back and challenge you to follow them. But first, climb the ladder up north and snag the Magic Ring outside. Return and move down southwest towards the next screen. Save your game here then navigate to the hole behind the waterfall for a Scaley Dress. Head out down the far left ladder and continue east to where the dwarves are.
Boss Battle – Hi Ho Tank
HP 1000 / Innate Yellow / Attack 28 / Magic Attack 12 / Defense 14 / MagicDefense 5 / Drop (Common) Knee Pad / Drop (Rare) Iron / Steal (Common) Screw / Steal (Rare) Knee Pad / Absorbs n/a / Inmune n/a
This tank has a powerful attack called Element Shot which is capable of killing a character in one hit. Fortunately, the tank doesn’t seem to use it as much when there are other dwarves present, so be sure to kill only one of the dwarves that came with it. Spam green elements until it falls.
After the battle, head over to the exit, and your party will automatically check in on Rosetta. If you didn’t recruit Razzly, if Pentapus ate her, or if you recruited her but had her in your party in the fight against the Hydra, Rosetta will live. Otherwise, your party will lament her loss (while you talk to the Water Dragon, Razzly will stay behind with her sister if you take her).
The blue dragon awaits just beyond here. Talk to it and you’ll receive the Ice Breath and the FrogPrince summon. Return to the entrance, speak to the fisherman and sail back to Arni Village. Head to the restaurant and talk to the woman in the orange dress, who happens to be an aspiring poet to receive the Book of Poems. Please show this to her other self for a Rainbow Shell.
