Defeat the Enemy to the Left for Cure

cure mine
The second you enter the dungeon turn left to find a monster that will drop a Cure magicite. There are enemies that drop other magicite as well but this dungeon doesn't require magic too heavily (unless you play as a Yuke) so you don't need to worry about it so much.

List of Magicite and its Effects

Watch Out For Bombs

Final Fantasy veterans will know that when tackling Bomb or Grenade type enemies to beware of them exploding in their face. The same holds true here as you will encounter Bombs in this dungeon. Be sure to get away from them quickly when they go down to avoid taking heavy damage. The explosion will also damage other monsters so try and take Bombs out first to take advantage of this.

Both Minecart Switches Are the Northern Switch

Both Are Northern Switches.jpg
Throughout the dungeon you will be hitting a minecart along the tracks to destroy otherwise unbreakable barriers. Don't hit the cart too many times, however, as at two points on your way through the mines you will have to change the direction of the track by stepping on a switch. Both switches will be the one to the north of the cart. Once you've confirmed the tracks are facing in the correct direction keep on smacking the cart!

An Ogre Has the Key

key
Past the first screen transition you will eventually encounter a gate blocking your way. To unlock the gate and pass through, head back down to your left and kill the Ogre there to get the key. Ogres are have attacks that can't be avoided without blocking so be careful when taking them on.

More to Explore in Cycle 2 and Beyond

second cycle
Starting in the second cycle the layout of the dungeon will change allowing you to explore the upper floors of many of the rooms. There also plenty of new treasure chests to loot so if you have the time to spare you should take another look around. Despite the layout differences, however, the path to the boss remains unchanged.

Use Holy on Wraiths

In cycles 2 and 3, use Holy to make Wraiths vulnerable, then finish them off with all you've got.

Broader View Upstairs

Go upstairs during the 2nd and 3rd cycles, to get a wider view of every room, making it easier to find all treasure.
