Avoid battles on ship

Fly as low as possible to avoid battles on your ship. Note: This works about 50% of the time.

Water beast

When you get the Green Moon Crystal, go back down to Horteka Village. Go down to the water and talk to the beast. He will ask to see the stone. Answer "Yes" and you will get a black 5" cannon for your ship. Note: You can only talk to the beast once, and if you do not have the stone at that time he will leave forever. If you give him the crystal, you will have to fight him to get it back.

Vorlik Blade

In order to get the ultimate blade for Vyse, you must first have Ryu-Khan and then you must upgrade his shop. After you find Fina's ship, talk to him about things. He will tell you about a piece of metal called "Velorium". Go back into deep sky and start searching with the crane. Soon, you will find two pieces of the substance. Talk to him again and he will begin work on his "ultimate piece". In a day or two, check with him. He will give you the Vorlik Blade. This has the highest attack and accuracy in the game.

Abirik Chams

    1. Catch ten Sky Sardis fish and give them to the merchant flying next to Horteka.

    2. Go to Nasr once it has been destroyed and talk to the old merchant who gave you the passport into Valua. He is in the weapon shop.

Once you have obtained all of these, keep going back and forth again until the tavern keeper gives you the final Abirik Cham.
