You will explore many areas on your quest in Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin. Some areas will be filled with Goblins and Griffons that want to decapitate you. Other areas will be filled with Dark Skeletons and Bats that want to decapitate you too. Pretty much anything in the game wants to kill you, walls included.

On your quest to find the Earth Crystal, you'll need to carefully navigate several life or death traps. One such trap is a set of moving walls in the Cavern of Earth in "Memories of Earth". These walls will try to push you into the abyss while you are being attacked by Dark Skeletons, Griffons, and a whole host of enemies. The walls move quite fast and, combined with the Skeletons, you can easily be killed by them. Fortunately, there is a quick way to stop them.

In this guide, we're going to show you how to stop the moving walls.

How to Stop the Moving Walls

Stopping the moving walls is easy once you know how to do it, but it's surviving the onslaught from other enemies that can make it difficult.

To stop the moving walls, you need to repeatedly attack them. We strongly recommend that you avoid using the Mage Job to attack the walls. They move quite fast so Jobs like the Duelist, Pugilist, and Ronin are suited to stopping them. Once you attack them once, a small health/destruction bar will appear on the wall. Keep attacking the wall to lower this bar. When it's empty, the wall will crumble.


However, the tricky bit is surviving the attacks from the surrounding enemies. When you encounter them, activate Jed and Ash's resonance states to let them deal with them. Also, as soon as you land in front of the moving wall, use your Lightbringer ability. This will push the enemies away from you and weaken them. If you have time, you can take on the enemies, but your main focus should be to stop the wall first.

Moving walls and vengeful Skeletons are just a few of the many dangers you face in Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin. However, all battles can be made easier by upgrading your equipment as you go from mission to mission. Find out how to do this in our equipment guide. Also, armour can protect you from harm and it can enhance your abilities. Check out our armour guide to learn more.
