LoM Routing Theories (The Seven Wisdoms)

There are a lot of different ways one can lay the map and artifact locations in Legend of Mana, but sometimes you’ll want to place one artifact close to another to get a certain event, otherwise an event just won’t trigger. The below is basically going off the top of my head on where the NPCs you need to show and what may be a viable route to get all of them without wandering all over the place.

  • Purple are artifacts
  • Green are NPCs
  • Bold are place names (normally)
  • Blue is event name
  • Red are questions I need answers to, or just me talking


I want to start off with The Seven Wisdoms first, which is the event where you have to take Bud to visit all of the Wisdoms in the world — Selva, Gaeus, Pokhiel, Oblohn, Tote, and Rosiotti. It’s a hassle to do this one, since it’s kind of all over the place. Plus, Bud sucks as a partner in battles. I mean, really sucks.

Rosiotti can be found in the Jungle.

  • Jungle events:
    • Huntin’ Du’Cate
      • You can take Bud for this event.
    • Murmuring Forest
      • You can take Bud for this event.
    • Li’l Cactus
      • Can’t take Bud
  • What I’ve done:
    • I normally grab Bud, go FL, trigger Heaven’s Gate and grab BL, go to ME, visit Rosiotti, then leave and go to BL.
      • FL, ME, and BL are all in a row, so it’s easy travel.
      • I also talk to Selva in BL.

Pokhiel can be found in Lumina (after which event?), Home, the Mines, or Mana Tree.

  • Lumina events:
    • Niccolo’s Business Unusual: Part 3
      • Can’t take Bud
    • Diddle Had It
      • Can take Bud
        • If you go to Underworld with Bud for this event, I don’t think it’s wise to talk to Pokhiel there, because there’s a chance to fail this event (I think).
  • Home events:
    • Cage of Dreams
      • Not a wise choice, because you can’t talk to Pokhiel specifically, to trigger Bud speaking with him.
  • Ulkan Mines events:
    • Watts Drops the Hammer
      • Can take Bud, but he’s horrible for boss fighting.
    • Pokhiel: Dream Teller
      • Can take Bud, not much battling
  • Mana Tree events:
    • Legend of Mana
      • Ask yourself if you really want Bud to be the one to help you with the end boss…
  • What I’ve done:
    • With Bud, I trigger Diddle Had It, talk to Pokhiel (answer no), go into shop and grab Niccolo for his event.
  • I’m wondering here if you can go to Lumina, talk to Pokhiel and teleport to Underworld, visit Oblohn, and teleport back up to entrance.
    • You’d have to finish The Fallen Emperor to be able to teleport (I assume), and I don’t think Pokhiel will teleport you after that event (not sure).
  • I don’t think you fight that much in Pokhiel: Dream Teller, so this would more than likely be the best option?

Selva can be found in Lucemia and Gato.

  • Lucemia events:
    • Heaven’s Gate
      • Can take Bud
  • Gato info:
    • I think Selva appears after Heaven’s Gate, but does Bud have to have already visited every other wisdom first?
  • What I’ve done:
    • In a row, I trigger Heaven’s Gate, visit Rosiotti, go BL, talk to Selva in BL.

Gaeus can be found at the end of the Highway.

  • Highway events:
    • Niccolo’s Business Unusual: Part One
      • You might be able to take Bud? You’d have to trigger Sorcerers, trigger Niccolo, do Sorcerers, grab Bud, then go meet Gaeus, and finish Niccolo. Seems lengthy.
    • The Wisdom of Gaeus
      • Can’t take Bud
    • Diddle’s Letter
      • You could take Bud
    • Li’l Cactus
      • Can’t take Bud
  • What I’ve done:
    • With Bud, I trigger Diddle’s Letter, use Boink, visit Gaeus, then backtrack to letter and finish event.

Tote can be found in Lake Kilma.

  • Kilma events:
    • Gorgon Eye
      • Can take Bud
    • In Search of Faeries
      • Can take Bud
    • Professor Bomb’s Lab
      • Can take Bud
  • What I’ve done:
    • With Bud, triggered Bomb and Faerie event, Tote during Faerie

So basically, here are the artifact lists that you might visit the Wisdoms in:

  • Jungle (ME)
    • Rosiotti
  • Wheel (WH)
    • Gaeus
  • Stone Eye (SE)
    • Tote
  • Brooch of Love (BL)

    • Oblohn
  • Firefly Lamp (FF)
    • Pokhiel
  • Bottled Spirit (BS)
    • Pokhiel
  • Sword of Mana (SM)
    • Pokhiel

  • FF and TS have events connected to one another
  • FL, ME, SE, AT, and BL have events connected to one another
    • FL > SE
    • ME > FL
    • FL > AT > FL > BL
  • FF and AT have events connected to one another
  • CB and WH have events connected to one another
  • BD and SE have events connected to one another
  • BS and MB have events connected to one another
  • MB and SM have events connected to one another
  • BS, PH, and RA have events connected to one another
    • BS > PH > RA
