Quick ResetTo reset while in the game, press A+B+START+SELECT.
Unlock Expert MissionsTo unlock Expert Missions, beat the game once and save. When you start again, you will have a star next to your name.
Double Sword SkillThe Double Sword is an S skill that allows you to use 2 swords at a time. This is useful for learning skills becuase wearing 2 of the same weapon will double the amount of AP per battle you gain.
UltimaUltima is the most powerful magic in the game. Once a character learns it, switch that character to a class with a weapon that has a long range like archer or gunner because Ultima's range is based off of what your weapon range is.
Characters With MedalsCertain enemies have small blue medals by their name. This makes them invulnerable to Law Effects, though they may get yellow cards, they will never get red cards.
Recruiting UnitsWhen you have 5 or less members in your clan, Montblanc will put up Recruitment Missions. These are 5 day dispatch missions that will get you another unit. Each month gets you a different kind of unit.

and the resistance. Then he will post up a mission in the pub, called "Reconciliation" (NOTE! If you haven't finished the first mission he gives you, you'll have to do that one first before you get "Reconcilation"). Complete it, and you should get Ezel.
Babus: Nu Mou
Finish the mission called "Left Behind" (which becomes available soon after completion of the game) then enter any town. A small cutscene will play, with Babus asking you to come along with him to Ambervale. After the cutscene, DO NOT LEAVE THE TOWN. Go straight to the pub, and select mission "With Babus". Once you've finished that mission, there'll be a scene where Marche asks Babus to be his friend. Halfway through the scene, Babus will offer to join. Voila! (NOTE! Immediately after the cutscene where Babus asks you to come along, you MUST go to the pub and select the mission "With Babus".

Easy Nu Mou Level UpWhat you first need to do is get a Nu Mou into an illusionist class. This Class is posted above. After he becomes an illusionist master the absorb MP ability ( lordly robe Negotiate Lv.45 I think) Then turn him into a time mage and master quicken and reflect. Cast reflect on an ally and then cast quicken. The quicken will bounce and hit you then youll get 10 exp. You can do this over and over till your desired level. Lv. 50 is attainable in about one to two hours.
Mission HelpIf you are having trouble beating missions during the game, take some time to only do clan wars. You can get lots of judge points, along with tons of experience and money.
Using your time for easy level upWhen in battle, if you plan to "Wait", don't! Use your time! If your character has an ability that raises defence, heals, or anything like that, just do it. It will allow your character to level up without wasting its turn. If your character however, doesn't have an ability that doesn't give damage to other people or something else, then you probably would use a potion or some item. But thy not to use items for exp.!
More Effective Treasure HuntsThe most effective Treasure Hunts are performed like this:
Best: Two of the same type of symbols (e.g. two forests) at the top of the circle and two of the same type of symbols (e.g. two mountains) placed on the bottom part of the circle on the world map, with another symbol in the middle (as the final symbol placed).
2nd Best: Four symbols in a circle with another placed in the middle (as the final symbol placed).
3rd best: Three symbols in a circle with another placed in the middle (as the final symbol placed)
Hunter's Ultima WeaponDuring the mission "over the hill" when you fight against Ritz and her clan, use a thief with the steal weapon ability to steal Shara's weapon, called SeventhHeaven. Equip it to a Hunter and it will learn Ultima Shot.
Hint: Extra ExperienceIf you ever run into a gel-type creature called a flan and need a little exp, here is a tip. First kill off every other enemy on the field, and then surround the flan with your people. Use regular attacks on it, which will only do 1 damage, and if the enemy is of sufficient level, you'll gain a few levels while slowly killing it.
No Worry BattlingIf your really fed up with laws, than try to lure your battles in "Jagd" places like Jagd Dorsa and Jagd Ahli. For example, say you had a mission that required you to defeat another clan (missions with the blue devil-like head logo), you could try to make them go to Jagd places where there is no laws. But make sure they go there plus you meeting them in the limited days for the mission(unless its an "unlimited days" mission). Now you can battle without worrying about getting yellow or even red cards!
Advantageous BattlingWhen your battling, sometimes you think you can use law cards as defense. Well you can. You can use law cards called "Dmg2: Human". There is also Dmg2:Bangaa, Dmg2: Nu Mou, Dmg2: Viera, and Dmg2: Moogle. When your battling, and you have a human on your side, and the opposite clan does not, you can use the Dmg2: Human law card. So when your opponent gives damage to your human, they will get a yellow card. If they do not have a medal beside their name, and they kill the human, they will get a red card. You can use this trick with a bangaa, viera, nu mou, or moogle also.
Gia flair and explodeOn the game when you obtain babus and Quin you can see that the two moves Gia Flair and explode look similar and the do around the same damage(mine are both level 45)and the combine strength is imense so use them as a team.
Recruit QuinTo get Quin to join your clan, complete the "Missing Professor" mission. After the battle, Quin may ask to join your clan. Be sure you have room in your clan for Quin or you will miss the opportunity.
