  • Before the team can get at the Reptites they first need to make it through the Forest Maze, a small, outdoor dungeon, located to the south of Ioka Village. You'll need to go all the way back through the Forest Maze to reaccess Ioka Village, so you may want to pick up supplies in the village before entering this place.

    Upon first entering the Forest Maze, once Ayla’s on your team, you’ll find her bud Kino waiting. He has committed some unfriendly blunders, but will make up for it by pointing you into the Forest Maze, in the wake of the Reptites. The Reptites left behind a distinct trail of footprints, and you can follow them from the entrance to the exit.

    The group battle a pair of Gold Eaglets in the Forest Maze, in Chrono Trigger.

    Head right from where you spoke to Kino, through the trees. You'll find a yellow-topped box just beyond the trees, and it contains a Mid-Potion. Climb down the vine to the right of this first box and you'll find a second, which contains Athenian Water. You’ll be attacked by two Gold Eaglets when you approach the second box. They’re pretty simple to kill, though they turn into Red Eaglets halfway through their HP and become a bit more aggressive.

    Climb down to ground level and head east, across a nearby fallen log. Check to the south of the log to find a chest containing a Mid-Potion, then follow the water’s edge north to find a Mid-Ether. Both boxes will take you away from the Reptite tracks.

    The team battles a Bao Bao, a monster of the Forest Maze in Chrono Trigger.

    Return to the Reptite tracks and follow the path east, through the trees. Halfway through you’ll have to fight a Bao Bao, a winged monkey creature that can inflict large amounts of damage if you don’t kill it quickly. Continue south past the Bao Bao until you hit a split, then take a left to find a chest containing an Athenian Water.

    Take a right and trek all the way south, until you hit the bottom of the screen. You’ll find a chest at the bottom between two palm trees. It contains a Shelter. East of this chest you'll find a twisting upper pathway, which you can follow until you run into hit two Crested Sprinters. Continue south past them, then west, to find a split in the path. Continue west, as far as you can go, until you find a box containing a Mid-Potion.

    The group battles a Kilwala and a Bao Bao, monsters of the Forest Maze in Chrono Trigger.

    A short trip north of this box is a vine leading to the ground, though you'll need to head back east a little ways and go north to get at it. Approaching the vine will trigger a fight with a Bao Bao and a Kilwala. After taking them out, look on the edge of the screen to your left to find a box containing a Panacea.

    Go down the vine. Follow the path to the right until you hit what looks like a dead end, then walk under the platform above to find a chest. It contains a Mid-Ether. This is the last treasure of the Forest Maze, so return to the vine you used a moment ago and head south to find the exit. Next stop, Reptite Lair.
