Display Bonus EXP

After beating the game on any difficulty setting, go to the options menu upon starting a new game, once again it doesnt matter which difficulty. At the very bottom it says "Bonus EXP Display" this means that after every map, before you save your cleared data for that particular map it will display an additional screen with a chart that adds up your gained B.Exp for that level. Not only is this a good way to see what you could have gotten but it tells you what they were worth.

How to obtain Rex Aura

In the final chapter a Bishop has Rex Aura equiped which you cannot obtain in the game, but these 4 steps will help you obtain this item.

1) Silence the Bishop
2) Wound the Bishop, until his HP is at least under half
3) The Bishop should use an Elixir to heal himself (if not, try weakening him further).
4) By now, he should have de-equipped the Rex Aura, so you can steal it with a Thief.
