* AppliedPhlebotenum: The Fallen Arm is surrounded by the ocean, and has no constructed borders that serve as zone boundaries. To prevent the player from wandering too far out, they will start to take damage as if swimming in poison water. An NPC mentions that the currents have high concentrations of Ether flowing through them.

** After defeating Xord, he gives the first hints about [[spoiler:his past as a Homs]]. The information is vague enough so the player doesn't know [[WhamEpisode what this will lead into]]. Speaking to a certain NPC after his defeat will give much less vague information regarding this.

* DiskOneNuke: Once you get Melia and have her sleep and Spear Break talent arts, it's possible to use her to push the Gogols, an exceedingly high leveled late game enemy on Bionis Leg, off of cliffs for a OneHitKill. While the team [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything thought of that and put a max EXP and AP cap in relation to your level, regardless of what level the enemy is at]], it's still possible to get some really good equipment, Art Books, and level V / VI strength up gems from them, which helps makes the game up to [[spoiler: the Mechonis proper]] a breeze.
