Megami Tensei[edit | edit source]

Bien is the second dungeon in the game, and it is reached from the Valhalla Corridor after completing the Tower of Daedalus. In order to enter Bien, you must find and return the shield back to Garu, as his brother Dor will silently turn you away. To find Garu's Shield, use the working elevator back in the Tower of Daedalus to the 3rd floor.

The city has been petrified by Medusa, and her shadows haunt the floating city. Medusa can petrify anyone who does not have the Statue of Tabasa, a relic that is found at the bottom-left corner of the 2nd floor. Once Medusa is defeated, Bien returns to a normal town with accessible shops and, after obtaining the Tour Pass, Nakajima can use the area to fly between the Valhalla Corridor, the Mazurka Corridor, and Infini Palace. If the city is 'parked' in a different area, the city's guard at each location can summon the city to that area.

The strongest weapon in the game, the Hinokagutsuchi, is located here, but it cannot be obtained until Ruth's Bottle is acquired in the Rotting Sea of Flames. On the 4th floor, Ruth will detect a false wall at one of the dead ends. Casting Mapper will open the wall, leading to a long path full of trap-floors and warps. After following the correct route, the Hinokagutsuchi is obtained if Nakajima's Strength stat is high enough.
