How to activate the Spirit Fountain
[∧]

  • first you have to collect all 4 pieces of the „Light“ equipment for the hero (you can find them on Floor 3-5)
  • go to the castle an talk to the princess (Jessa)
  • talk to Theos and you will receive the Vial of Tears
  • go to Level 5 and use the Vial of Tears in front of the Spirit Fountain
  • every time you visit the fountain again the spirit will restore your HP and MP points
  • sadly you can’t use your teleport medallion here 😦

How to gain a lot of XP in Level 5

In the last section of level 5 you will encounter the Crystal Ooze enemy.

Shining in the Darkness SEGA Mega Drive RPG XP trick cheat Level 5

Crystal Ooze Party

The Crystal Ooze has only 2-4 HP and they are worth 30.000 XP 🙂 but:

  • they are immune to physical attacks and status ailments
  • elemental attack spells will deal 0 – 1 damage to them
  • this enemy is very fast and they frequently escape from battle before you can kill them
  • they can cast Freeze 4 …

I think using the Forbidden Box, Black Box, Shock Box, Ogre Flute or the Earth Hammer with Pyra!! is the quickest way to beat them.

  • Forbidden Box (has various effects) – Cave of Strength
  • Earth Hammer – Alkemists Special Deals (Hero Level 60+)
  • Shock Box – Alkemists Special Deals (Hero Level 70+)
  • Ogre Flute – Alkemists Special Deals (Hero Level 80+)
  • Black Box – Alkemists Special Deals (Hero Level 90+)
