Wild Arms 2 Part 40: A Farewell to ARMS

Previously on Wild Arms 2: Liz & Ard only appeared in 10% of this Let’s Play. It has been an abject failure.

But now we’re in the final chamber of the final dungeon, so maybe we can turn this whole thing around.

And some dude is talking!

Oh, sweet. Guess we just have to do some punching and we’ll be home in time for Jeopardy.

Unfortunately, Irving’s brilliant plan has already hit a snag: the Kuiper Belt is too much for the vessel, so it is growing uncontrollable, physical roots.

So, anyway, new mission…

Wild Arms 2 Part 37: Wreckage of the Past & Seeds of the Future

Previously on Wild Arms 2: ARMS tried to halt and capture the encroaching parallel universe… but it didn’t work out. Irving sent the squad off to investigate some random monster sightings while he stayed home and worked on a plan B that is a horrifying version of Plan B.

So the first thing you might notice about Fiery Wreckage is that it is not, in fact, on fire. Considering the team is walking around completely unmolested, this appears to be Not Even Warm Wreckage.

Please do not jump off the Not Even Warm Wreckage, Ashley.

This area is very small, and, given the tiny space, it’s entirely likely you won’t even encounter a single random encounter.

Tools are necessary, though.

It appears there is some manner of canyon between the outside and inside areas of this “dungeon”. A good quake from Brad will at least open some doors.

And then mist cloaking with Tim will clear that canyon.

There are many doors leading into this area, and this door leads to… a familiar sword…

Wild Arms 2 Part 35: A Water Kanon

Previously on Wild Arms 2: We’ve activated three Reypoints, now it’s time for the last of ‘em.

Up to this point, the other dungeons could be completed in any order. For reasons that are lost to time, however, the final of these four Reypoints requires a little more effort.

First of all, we have to stop back at that crazy drawbridge from back when Lilka was palling around her ice town. Then, we have to have already obtained Tim’s Mist Cloak from his signature dungeon. Mist cloak through the fence we saw a thousand updates ago, and…

Oh boy! Treasure!

Blast ‘em is Ashley’s last non-hidden, easily obtained Arm. Blast ‘em hits a whole party of monsters, so it’s pretty useful for large groups of mooks you need to clear out quickly. Unfortunately, basically none of the super difficult battles in WA2 are group battles, and it’s a lot more economical to use guardian summons or magic for general monster mobs. But still! Nice to have!

But more importantly than treasure (that phrase hurts to write), we can now access the bridge control panel that Liz & Ard monkeyed (lizarded?) with earlier.

Screw local traffic, we’re leaving that bridge up forever…

Wild Arms 2 Part 30: The Last(ing) Scars of Odessa

Previously on Wild Arms: We learned everything we ever wanted to know about Kanon, but were afraid to ask. … Mainly because of the way she brandishes that knife. Girl is fierce.

But no time to talk to Kanon now, Marina has been kidnapped!

Oh, Marina has been kidnapped to a dungeon within driving distance. Convenient.

“Is… are… Are we supposed to visit the frozen lake of Hell?”
“It’s unclear.”

Oh yeah, Cocytus was named after the bit in Dante’s Inferno wherein… Hey! It’s one thing for a fictional group to use a cool sounding name, but Filgaia actually has its own version of Dante’s Inferno? Or Greek mythology? Greece makes it more of a river…

Caina was sucked into a death portal upon defeat back at the Diablo Pillar, and this is what happens when you just assume a black hole is going to crush someone to death.

“That’s great, Ashley. Let’s calmly sit here and discuss the concept of ‘quickly’…”
