Walkthrough[edit]

Reaching the Ruins[edit]

  • You will be shot from Gaia's Navel to the Inn of Pandora.
  • Start by heading to the East and then head to the North, into the Castle.
  • Go on inside the castle, through the main door and through the archway in front of you.
  • Turn left and head down and then take the nearby stairs up.
  • Head over to the right and then turn downward.
  • Go over to the right and take the stairs upwards in this small room on the right.
  • Go left after that and through the large double-doors in the middle of the top wall.
  • Inside this room, you will have a scene play out with the King of Pandora and Gemma.
  • Gemma is headed to the nearby Pandora Ruins, to the South of the village itself.
  • He will leave and then you will be able to move about as well.
  • You can talk with the King who will then head into his chamber.
  • Leave the Castle through the same path into it.
  • From there, head South to the edge of town and then over to the West.
  • You will see a woman with blue hair, Pamaela in the entrance into the next area.
  • Approach and talk with her for a quick conversation that causes her to disappear.
  • Go through the passage she was blocking.
  • From there, go over to the right and then up.
  • This leads to a courtyard with a few people in it, who have nothing to say.
  • Go up to the blue-haired woman and talk with her again.
  • She will say some mysterious things and then push through the guards.
  • Primm will be surprised by her friend's reaction and punch the guards to force them to retreat.
  • This clears the way for the party to enter the Pandorian Ruins itself.

The Pandorian Ruins[edit]

  • Inside the ruins, the area is filled with a light purple mist that covers everything.
  • The first room has 3 Zombies and 1 Tomato Man.
  • Defeat the enemies to get their entries into the guide.
  • If the Tomato Man is being very hard to hit, use any of Popoi's attack spells to instantly defeat them.
  • Go through the upper center door to go into ruins more.
  • In this first room, there is also a second door in the top right with 2 Swords and another Tomato Man.
  • In the next room, you will encounter 2 Chess Knight.
  • Head to the left and go down after you defeat the Knights.
  • This next room is a long corridor with numerous turns to follow South then West.
  • In the start you will encounter a Evil Sword and 2 Zombies.
  • Following the path to the North, as it heads West, you will encounter a Evil Sword.
  • Past that you will encounter another Tomato Man.
  • Turn to the South after that and go down the stairs.
  • At the top of the stairs is another pair of Evil Swords.
  • Defeat them and head down the stairs.
  • To the North of those stairs is another small room with 2 Evil Swords and a Tomato Man.
  • Head over to the West and then down the stairs.
  • You will encounter another [{Secret of Mana: Tomato Man|Tomato Man]] and a number of Zombies.
  • Going East you will encounter another Tomato Man.
  • Just South of it is another Zombie to fight.
  • Either defeat these opponents or simply head through the Southern corridor and over to the West.
  • As you reach the first turn in this corridor, you will encounter another Tomato Man.
  • Following it over to the West you will find another Evil Sword that you could fight as well.
  • Yet another Tomato Man await you with the next bend in the corridor.
  • Worry more about the Zombies they drop than the Tomato Man. Just remember that the party needs to kill at least 1 for the Monster Guide entry.
  • Once again, the corridor will turn North and lead to some stairs going South.
  • Head down the stairs to the South.
  • From here, go over to the West then turn North.
  • You will find numerous people in masks surrounding a platform.
  • Go up the stairs and talk with the man on top of the platform, this is Thanatos.
  • After revealing both Pamaela and Dyluck, he will drop the party into the chmaber below.
  • Here, the party will need to face the boss of the dungeon.


Wall Face - Boss Fight[edit]

  • This can be a very tough boss fight if you do not handle things properly.


  • First, you DO NOT want to take out the eyes on the sides first.
  • This will cause the wall to start pushing the whole party toward the spikes on the opposite end of the room.
  • This boss has 3 magic spells it likes to use, Leaden Gaze, HP Absorb, and Freeze.
  • Leaden Gaze will Tangle whomever it targets, lowering their evasion and accuracy.
  • Freeze does ~40 Water damage, being Lv. 3


  • To win this boss fight, you can do damage to the eyes on the side, but your main focus should be the middle, Vertical Eye.
  • Have Popoi cast Gem Missile on the middle eye repeatedly.
  • Randi and Primm, if equipped with the Chobin's Bow or Pole Dart should attack the middle eye as well.
  • Watch your HP and MP, using Candy, Cure Water, and Faerie Walnuts as needed.
  • Just focusing your Gem Missiles on the middle eye will make for a very fast boss fight against the Wall Face.


  • If you do defeat the side eyes first, immediately target the central eye with everyone.
  • Have Popoi start bombarding the central eye with their attack magic immediately.
  • After that, it is just an all out assault to do enough damage before reaching the spikes at the other end of the room.
  • If any character touches the spikes, they will die.
