Anchor Rod (Extended Grappling Hook / Longer Wire Rod)
Required: Wire Rod Use your Wire Rod to cross to the mountain range in the northeast corner of the world map. Instead of moving west to Joe's Shack (the Inn), move east. Use the Wire Rod to cross the small river and walk along the cliff fast heading east. You'll come to an area with some enemies and a ridged northern cliff face. Examine this cliff face on your minimap. Between two of the ridges you should be able to make out a red pixel in the second nook from the right. Stand on the red pixel to warp to a new location. Here you'll find a chest with the Anchor Rod. You can use this to access previously out of reach areas -- like the upper right hand corner of the map!
Required: Wire Rod. In the southwest heath area, just north of the graveyard, you'll encounter blue Zombies that drop gold pieces (worth 100G!) with reasonable frequency. There's a fairy fountain in a cave down here as well. To the east of the fairy fountain you can move between areas, thus causing the enemies to respawn. Travel north and south between areas (or in and out of the fairy fountain if you wish) and kill these enemies to line your pockets with G. Required: Swamp Boots. In the swamp between Hotel Nialliv and the final dungeon are a number of Zombies and Blue Centaurs that tend to drop gold pieces (worth 100G). Enter the final dungeon to make these enemies respawn for easy pickens'.
You'll need at least 4000G before you attempt this sidequest. After beating the Wind Temple you should be packing the Flame Shield. Talk to Dic in Raejack Village to upgrade the Flame Shield to the Bolt Shield. This will run you 1000G. Bolt Shield in hand, head to Jim's Shack in the northwest mountains. Talk to the mustachioed dude to purchase one of each key type: Red, Blue and Green. These will cost you 1000G a piece. With a pocket full of keys, hightail it over to the northern swamp. To the west of the Dark Tower is a cracked wall which you can blow open with a bomb. Make your way to the end of the mini-dungeon to find an adventurer that's interested in your crummy Bolt Shield. Trade him for the Hero Shield.
Required: Wire Rod, Flame Wand. In the southwest corner of the map you'll find the graveyard. Examine your minimap and you'll see that one of the graves is not marked by a dot. The grave in question is one over (west) and three up (north) from the southeast corner of the graveyard. You can push this gravestone upwards to reveal a passage leading down. Talk to the Hero's ghost in the grave to receive the awesome Hero's Sword.
Required: Swamp Boots. In the swamp between Hotel Nialliv and the final dungeon, head north to find two neat rows of trees. Search between these trees to find the Mirror of Truth. Head to the Hotel Nialliv and talk to the boy in the top right area. He'll tell you to lift some curses with the Mirror. You must talk to cats and dogs in and around each town AND inn to return them to human form (and the blob in Raejack Village who becomes a human). Once you return all the animals (about six) to human form, talk to the boy in the Hotel Nialliv to receive the Beam Sword.
