Peaceful Underground Lake – Masaharu Iwata

So I figured we need some Children of Mana music, we haven’t seen any of that except for the one track that made it into the annoying music poll. Speaking of polls, there’s a new one running, don’t forget to vote! This track is the one you find yourself listening to when you’re running around Star Lake in Topple. Here’s a tip for leveling up there:

Once you get to a high enough level (pretty much near the end of the game) you can head to Star Lake and find some secret Metal Crabs hiding there. A good place to look for them would be near a bunch of gold treasure chests, you probably need to work your way through some of those annoying vines that grab you too, so push some enemies into it and then kill them so they’ll take the vines down with them.
When you get near the treasures run around a bit and a purple Metal Crab will pop up. Be careful around this guy, even when you’re at level 99 with some nice armor he can still do some good damage. If you kill him you’ll get a whopping 1000 experience points, which is usually enough to push you through 2 or 3 levels.

    Just to add to this, the trick to killing the little blighter is not to attack him outright (you can only inflict 1 damage), but to use the Parry function of your sword to deflect his pincer-boomerang attacks back at him (inflicting most of the damage he would have inflicted upon you had his attack made contact).

    And remember, if you don’t have any parry modifying gems, you can only deflect 5 hits before your shield falls, so renew it before all is too late.
