Part One: Getting Started in the Forest Ruins

Main Walkthrough


- You’ll start off in the hall of the King of Adventurers. He’ll give you 300 St right off the bat. Nice. After a bit of conversation he’ll also give you an Elemental Scale and an Encyclopedia. One is combat-based, and will be discussed later; the other records your adventures as you progress.

- Once the King is done talking you can wander around Initium. You’ll also be happy to note that you can open the menu, which was unavailable in the Forest Ruins. From here you can edit Formations, change character equipment, and Quick Save. There are a lot of tough battles in this game, and Quick Saving will allow you to bypass long jaunts through harrowing dungeons if you happen to die. (And you will die.)

- Out into town. Initium has several places of interest to you. We’ll look at ‘em below.


In the centre of Initium is a vendor. This guy handles the town’s sales, and will be the primary money sink for your hard-earned St. You can purchase weapons, armour, and maps from him. There are also ‘Special’ items which are especially rare; you’ll need to drop a lot of cash to get these, cash you don’t have right now. Special items will rotate daily.

Of particular importance here are the selling options. The vendor will not only purchase old items off of you, but he’ll buy info - namely, completed maps. He will also buy incomplete maps, if you’re feeling lazy, but you’ll get less money than if you took the time to finish the map. You can only sell a map to him once, so make sure you’re happy with your navigation before turning one in.


West of the Shop is the Port. Here you can purchase ships of varying prices. You’ll then send these ships out to ‘trade’ with other merchants. In truth, this is a StreetPass function: if you wander by other players with StreetPass active, you’ll pick up items. Fun. You will still get items if you don't have StreetPass active, mind - but you'll only get stuff after a full day has passed. The better the ship, the better the items. Get the best ships going as quickly as you can.

(As far as I know, Legend of Legacy doesn't penalize you for setting your clock forward. So... uh... y'know... if you feel like it... you can totally cheat...)


East of the Shop is the Bar. This place is mainly for gossip and tutorials. There’s not a whole lot to see at the moment, but if you come back here after seeing the introductory credits that play after leaving Initium for the first time (you may also have to stay at the Inn, I’m not positive) you can find more party members to recruit. They'll also pop up outside the Bar, but this is the best place to look.


In the far east of Initium is the Inn. Here you’ll find your first save point, which is well-earned by now. If you speak to the woman behind the desk she’ll offer to let you stay here and restore your health. More important, you can also speak to her to swap your party members later in the game. You know, once you… have… more than three party members. (It’ll happen soon.) Note that your starting character cannot be removed from your party, so hopefully you’re happy with your choice.

That’s all for Initium. Head across the bridge to the east of the Inn and you’ll leave town… and hit the intro credits. Ooo, mystery. Important note! From this point on, The Legend of Legacy becomes fairly non-linear. You can either head back to the Forest Ruins, which offers plenty more to explore, or you can go to the Shop and buy some maps to unlock new areas. This walkthrough has a determined route, but how you proceed is entirely up to you.
