Legend of Mana Card Duel – Artifact and Land Cards

Posted on August 5th, 2021 by Dr. Sheexy

In the first of six major updates coming to the Legend of Mana Card Duel section, we now have Artifact and Land Cards scanned and translated!

The translations are done by me, and for the flavor text of each card I’m just using the in-game Encyclopedia entries because they are close enough. I may go back in the future and change those up, however.
The page also includes some rudimentary rules and information up top, but there will be a much more fleshed out Rulebook page in the future.

Stay tuned, as in the future I’ll get sections for the rest of the cards added along with those rules!

Special thanks to Deques, for working hard on getting the CSS for the translation info set up how I wanted and putting up with my tiny nitpicks!

Legend of Mana – Tempering for Dummies

Posted on August 1st, 2021 by Dr. Sheexy

Now you can find a written guide to tempering weapons and altering armor right here on Seikens!

Marcus Majarra graciously gave us permission to host his guide on our site. I’ve updated the formatting a bit here and there, and you can head on over to the Tempering for Dummies page to learn everything you need to know about the process!

Hey, what do you mean this isn’t really “new”? Yeah, I know it’s a 20 year old guide, but it’s new to Seikens isn’t it? The information is still very in-depth and the best out there!

Well ok, if you must know, Marcus Majarra is working on an updated version of the guide, and we’ll be hosting it here in the future! Stick around for updates!

Thanks, Marcus Majarra!

Legend of Mana – Tempering Explained & Example Recipes with Malchar

Posted on July 24th, 2021 by Dr. Sheexy

Was the lesson Watts gave you about forging, tempering, and altering your gear not enough for you? Still don’t understand materials, energy, tainting with elementals, and elemental consumption? Well then Malchar has got you covered!

Take 30 minutes of your time, and become a tempering expert through his video. He managed to create a weapon with 999 attack within around three hours of starting a new game, so with his guidance you can at least make something that makes you the nightmare of Nightmare Mode, and probably instill some fear into No Future as well.

Check the links in the description of his video for the tables and a forging simulator. As a bit of useful information, consider the following:

Visit Gato Grottoes and speak to the student walking around the shop area to get your fix on Fire, Earth, Wind, and Water Stones.
Check out the shop before Monique’s lamp shop in Lumina to stock up on Sun, Moon, Glow, and Chaos crystals.
A student at the Bone Fortress has some seeds and produce for sale. Gold Clovers can be quite useful for their high energy level, and Mush-In-A-Box are useful for Shade essence, though you’ll probably grow plenty of your own.

For some of the more important tempering materials, such as Ash and Mirror Pieces, you may need to stock up on them during a New Game (they’re limited to a few chests!) or try your luck at Ring Ring Land.

Courtesy of @ManaGame on Twitter, you can listen to 10 minutes of the Trials of Mana 25th Anniversary Concert.

Hopefully there will be a CD or DVD release available sometime in the near future, I’d love to see more!

Mana Music Boxes

Posted on July 15th, 2021 by Dr. Sheexy

Up for preorder on the Square-Enix store, you can find three Mana Music Boxes for sale. They’re pretty expensive, and the shipping is pretty high as well, but it’s pretty cool these came to the North American Square-Enix store.

Trials of Mana – Meridian Child

Legend of Mana – Hometown of Domina

Legend of Mana – Bejeweled City in Ruins

Here you can check out some short videos I took of each of them. The Domina one is by far my favorite.

You can also find some other cool Mana stuff there, if you look around. I’d recommend the Li’l Cactus Plushie, but you can also find some very expensive but very cool things.

Trials of Mana – Android and iOS release

Posted on July 15th, 2021 by Dr. Sheexy

The remake of Trials of Mana has been released, and apparently has some changes made such as adding auto-targeting that make it easier to play on a phone. Controller support, however, has been removed. The game takes up quite some space on a phone, so make sure you’ve got room! The price for either download is $23.99

Get Trials of Mana for Android on the Google Play Store.

Get Trials of Mana for iOS on the App Store.

Legend of Mana – Pet Raising

Posted on July 12th, 2021 by Dr. Sheexy

Another new page on the site!

Now you can head over to the Legend of Mana – Pet Raising page to learn about how to feed your pets.

It has info on what foods do what, as well as how pets naturally grow over time. That way you can plan out how you want to raise your pet. If you want to know where to find eggs, that’s over on the Monsters – Eggs and Drops page.

Right now there is only a special Polter Box diet on the page, but maybe I’ll add more as time goes on. Polter Boxes are everyone’s favorite, so I thought it should be included.
