In Gaiden, there are NPCs to talk to and a chest to the right containing the Ridersbane. In Shadows of Valentia There are yet more NPCs and items strewn about the place. In either case, heading up to the balcony and talking to Mycen will end Act 1. When Celica arrives, talking to Alm on the balcony will end Act 2. From Act 3 onward, Alm will be able to return to the castle at any time, while Celica will not.

This section details unofficial strategies that may help with completion of the chapter. This may not work for everybody.
  • Either party can pick up any of the items, but the Ridersbane will be best used by Alm, as he will encounter far more enemies it will be effective against than Celica.
    • If you are attempting to complete "The Merchant of Death" and you don't have access to the DLC map The Astral Temple, have Celica pick up the Steel Lance.
