Windwalker (Moebius 2) walkthrough


  Since this documentation is a "how to win" guide for Windwalker, so if
you want to enjoy this game to the fullest extent, you should really stop
reading this. However all you want is the fighting actions and to see the
end fast, or just getting stuck, this will definitely help.

The first thing you should do in windwalker is training, get yourself
familiar with the various moves [especially the ranges and recover time
(ie. time to recover from the attack movement) of all the attack forms that
you have] and the enemies of course.

This is a pseudo map of the realm: (realtive position only)

      assasin house                   thief hide          isle of Death

              Medicine Man
                                      Imperial Palace
                      2nd shrine

                      2nd village


                              1st shrine              explorer's
                      1st village

              Medicine man

Section 1: (getting started)

After "vigorous" training, you can venture forth into the "Real World", the
first thing you should do is to find some thiefs or assasin and kill them
for money and food.  Use the money to buy incense, food (if necessary).
Then go to the shrine to the north of the village (1st village) and talk to
the monk about incense, he will blessed your incense. Then read the scroll
in the holy shrine.  This scroll will tell you how to use the incense.

Note :

1. When you burn the incense, you will be prompted for the "prayer" to
chant these prayers are recorded in the scroll in the shrine.  They are :

  Heal my Body, Restore my Honor, Empower my spirit, Exorcise(fireball)

their function are self explanatory, and they required blessed incense.

2. If you are having trouble beating up the thief and assasin, here is an
easy way to "go about it".  First, when you see an enemy and then save the
game, after you engage him, and the combat isn't going your way, press 
and run away. This will get you back to the "overhead" screen. Choose
recall game and do the fight again until you win.

3. You will see a blind man in front of the store, give him the money he
asked you and ask him about his shoe, buy this shoe, it will come in use

Section 2: (after you feel ready to leave the 1st village, ie. you can take
            on tougher foes.)

Get a boat near the shore and sail east of the holy shrine(1st shrine)
until you find the island with a house on it, this is the explorer's house.
Go inside and get the map in the cabinet, this is the best map available in
the game.(you will also find a scroll that is a clue to solve the game but
it's not important because you have me). After that go to the
monastary(mark as a walled circular building in the explorer map).  Speak
to the older monk inside, he will ask you if you want to join their
brotherhood.  You will of course join them (because they will give you the
Staff and Robe).


1. In order to join the monks, you 'll have to follow the way of life for
   one day and observer the vow of silence.  This mean following the older
   monk the whole day.  After that you are tested in combat against
   yourself, if you win, you will get the staff and robe

2. There are scrolls on the second story of the monastary, the one about
   Nubia is essential in winning the game.  But read them all anyway.

3. If you happen to see another boat in the sea hail it. If it is the
   fisherman, ask him about buying supplies and buy 4 striped turtle
   shells.  (the shell is about 10 bucks each)

4. If you happen to pass an island where the Heron bird is resting
   (standing) on, disembark and run into the Heron, this will gives you
   some heron feathers.

Section 3: (getting magical talisman)

There are four magical talisman in this game, each one requires a special
item and a striped turtle shell  for the Shaman (living in a cave on the
Northwest corner of the Isle of Dead. [approach the island from the
northwest corner]) to make.  Here are the list and where to find them

Talisman      Items required         Comments
              (beside the shell)

Invisibility  Blind man's shoe       buy it from the blind man.
                                     Mantra is : unseen presence

�WaterWalk    Water beetle manibles  While invisible attack a Water beetle
                                     The beetles can be found in water in
                                     the Isle of Dead or a cavern Northeast
                                     of the Imperial Palace.
                                     Mantra is : the solid path

Invulenbility Sea dragon's scale     While invisible and water walking, at-
                                     tack a sea dragon. The dragons can be
                                     found in the water of the Isle of Dead
                                     Mantra is : the armored one

Levitation    Heron's feather        Heron's feather
                                     Mantra is : on the wing

After obtaining the require item and a striped turtle,  go to the shaman
and ask him about "things" and then the name of the talisman.

Note. while on the Isle of Dead, and it happens to be full moon, go to the
      cavern which is just southwest of the Shaman's cave where the tree of
      Immortality grows, there the normal Panda guarding the tree will
      reveal his true form as the God of Luck, he will give you the peach
      seed that is required to win the game.

      After you get the Invulenbility talisman, you have pretty much
      finished the game, because when you use it, you won't take damage
      from any combat and the talisman only drain your spirit at a slow
      rate and the money from the defeated foes can be use to purchase
      incense by the truck load and replenish your loss spirit.  You can
      literally start a massacre of the Warlord's allies.

Section 4: (knocking off your arch-enemies , the warlord and the alchemist)

Once you have the invulenbility talisman, walk into the palace with your
      monk robe on. Go to the building in the back. March up (kill any
foolish guards who happened to be in your way (or maybe you just hate his
face)) the stairs and meet the warlord.  With the talisman, this should be
no problem.

On any night of a new moon (preferably the 1st night), go inside the
palace (this can be done before obtaining the talisman but you should had
the monk robe on to pass through the guards at the front door, unless you
go inside the palace from the secret entrance from the cave where the water
beetles are), go to the building in the lower right corner. Copy the scroll
on the table and go upstairs to the astral gate (you 'll see the alchemist
waiting outside the gate doing absolutely nothing.) wait until it is
midnight (you can actually sleep there), when the alchemist go in the
astral gate, cast an "exorcise" (fireball) at the gate. (this will sealed
up the gate and trap the alchemist within.   After that you will have to go
back to the two shrines and save it from the spirit the Alchemist brought
from the Astral Plane. All you have to do is cast an "exorcise"(fireball)
at the pocessed priest(monk) in the shrine

Note. Be careful while casting the exorcise, it takes a lot of spirit. You
      need a full spirit to cast it.

Section 5: (to save the emperor)
Assuming you have kicked the Warlord and the Alchemist, you 'll have to
save the Empreror who is now imprisoned and drugged.  You 'll have to make
an antidote to free the emperor from the "Fu Ma Ren" drug. You 'll have to
get a copy of the Alchemist scroll to the medicine man in the SW corner of
the realm and he will informed you that he has no knowledge of making the
antidote and refer you to the 2nd medicine man hiding in the cave just NE
of the Imperial Palace and give you a letter of introduction.  Go to this
2nd medicine man and he 'll give you a key (which open the cabinet in his
house) and ask you to fetch a copy of the scroll found in the cabinet.
This scroll will tell you the 5 ingredients needed for the antidote. They

Rhino horn - in the Warlord's cabinet in his room (get the keys from the

Jasimine flower - From the Nubian Princess living in the bottom left corner
of the Warlord's house (back building in the Palace) The Princess doesn't
speak English, so when you are talking to her, first say "Salah"(hello),
then "dohnteh"(tea) and then "pluumfir"(flower the Jasmine flower)

Seed from the tree of Immortality - from The Isle of Death (see above

Gold - given by the explorer when you go to rescue him in the Thief's

Jade - found underneath the throne in the throne room (central building in

Once you have all five of these ingredients, go back to the cave with a
copy of the scroll from the 2nd medicine man's cabinet.  The second
medicine man will then leave the cave and go back to his house to make the
antidote, follow him to his place and wait until he is finished to the
Antidote.  Once you have the antidote, go to the jail (SW corner of
Palace, and use invisibility to avoid the Jailer).  Go to the 3rd cell
(counting from left to right) and open the door with the key the Warlord
had dropped when he fled. There you will see the emperor and once you give
him the antidote and he 'll recover and Moebiuse will elevate you to the
level of "Windwalker" and End game

PS :
There is a lot of interesting features in Windwalker, for example if you
talk to the Nubian Princess while she is bathing, your honor will got
deducted, and you can actually go through the Astral gate into the Astral
Plane, etc... Try them out, it's fun
