N3: Ninety-Nine Nights Cheats

Long have Humans and the Outland races been at war, the Humans with the Orb of Light and the Outland races with the Orb of Darkness. Both sides have skirmished for millennia, with no great gains made, but many sorrowing losses of life have been achieved in this stalemate. However, a war is brewing, a war that will see entire cities wiped clean of life, battles in harsh mountains and open fields and forests shrouded in mystery. This is not a war based in gain of territory but rather one of gaining possession of the other sides Orb, bringing about the Ninety-Nine Nights to end this Age and usher in a new one. Is it the work of these power hungry races, just a few overly zealous leaders, or something...more sinister?

Hint - Deus Ex Generalities
Some general hints for N3 players!

(1) The maximum level of a character is nine. More attacks are unlocked at higher levels, and more potent weapons (if acquired) may be equipped.

(2) Replaying a mission will slowly increase the potency of items (extrapolation from game manual).

(3) Items however, are partly randomized in chests and always randomized from dead enemies.

(4) Save slots track campaign progress and character development. Reserve one slot for each character!

(5) When you acquire a weapon or item, don't forget to equip it (Status Menu). Equipped items are organized by power level (Clover 2 will precede Life Globe 1 for example).

(6) Blocking is universal (and non-chipping). Block often against bosses or don't expect to survive.

(7) Orb Spark (blue) is very rare. If you have to forego an Orb Attack (red) to get more blue orbs or just to save up the Orb Spark for a boss or big conglomeration of enemies, do so.

(8) Troops are expendable. Use them or lose them.

(9) Allied officers are invulnerable. Use them to lure bosses while you attack .... from the back.

(10) Inphyy's final stage is impossible without some serious devotion. First, she needs her level 9 attack move. She also needs to achieve several S ranks across her stages -- this is because there's an item that lets Inphyy do red meter draining moves without draining the red meter. You will need that to defeat the ultimate enemy!
Hint - Curse Yourself And Be Stronger
Obtaining higher combos will unlock more powerful weapons. I was able to unlock the aegis charm 4 which raises your defense up by 80%. I was also about to obtain the Royal Flag (50% range attack & 20% Attack Power) and Royal Crown (Critical 50%).

The trick is to use those cursed items to weaken your character so you dont kill everyone in one hit. Each character has a level where you can rack up a huge combo. I got those items for Imphyy when I first reach a 9800 combo!

Tutorial Weapon
When you play the tutorial stage, check every treasure chest in sight for a Prominence weapon. Although you need to increase Inphyy's level to equip it, this is the only method to unlock this sword before committing to Inphyy's campaign.

Hint - King of Nights
Beating the final boss of N3 is much easier (and do-able) by doing the following:

1. Increase Inphyy's level to nine for her final attack.

2. Attain the accessory "Deadly Armband" as a randomly dropped item from various Army of the Night enemies.

3. A strong weapon. The Klausorus is an award for S rank in Inphyy's Eauvarria Mountain Pursuit.

4. Do Inphyy's final aattack move (GREEN, GREEN, YELLOW) on the boss when it is distracted and dash to evade all retaliatory attacks.

5. As a safety net, consider equipping the accessory "Demon Gloves" if necessary.
