"That fight left quite a bitter taste in my mouth... Though Enya's an enemy, I can't help but pity her. There don't appear to be any Tarot assassins in town, but I do sense a Stand user's presence in that peculiar mansion. And it reeks of blood... Whoever's in there, he's a cold-blooded killer. Once you're finished with your preparations, go to the meeting point at the harbor down south." -Steel's progress report
"What a catastrophe... We're without a car. But more catastrophic... Is the 6 Stand users that I can sense within this rest stop!! ...Just messing with you. Sorry, I couldn't help it. I can only sense you 5 and Enya right now." -Steel's progress report at the rest stop
After Enya is defeated, you'll stop at a tiny rest area on the way to Karachi with HP and SP fully restored. This rest stop has a vending machine and recovery items if you want to stock up before taking on Lovers, and the map has a random encounter with Assassin x3 if you wish to grind levels.
There will be extra dialogue during the initial confrontation with Steely Dan if your Stand is Cardigans, Specials or Adam Ant.
Leave the rest stop using the horse to continue the story. There are two ways to go about the Lovers fight:
Go with Jotaro. You won't be able to join the battle with Kakyoin and Polnareff and gain EXP, but you'll get bonus FP with Jotaro. In addition, if your protagonist is female, you'll get an extra scene after Jotaro is thrown out of the jewelry store, which itself will differ if Jotaro's FP is over 9 and if the protagonist is wearing a Bunny Suit.
Go with Kakyoin and Polnareff. As long as your Stand isn't Pixies, Napalm Death, Quicksilver, Caravan, or Mr. Big, you'll be able to enter the brain and join the fight against Lovers. If you fool around too long in this fight (like if you get whole-party berserked for a long time), it'll end automatically with no XP/FP gain after a short scene.
Afterwards, you can continue the story by entering the boat shop at the south of the map.
In the southwest corner of the map, a man is harassing a young lady. Talk to him, and Jotaro will punch him out. Afterwards, Jotaro will gain +1FP.
Souvenir From Karachi
Requirements: Kakyoin is in the party
If you talk to the shopkeep at the general store in the northeast corner of the map, he'll begin to wonder what kind of souvenir to bring to his family, but first, he decides to pick something out for you. He'll give you a Sparkling Mirror, an unlimited-use item that blinds enemies, and he'll gain +1FP.
Requirements: Joseph is in the party
Talk to the child blowing bubbles by the docks, and Joseph will begin to wax nostalgic about an old friend of his. The dialogue will differ if you have saved Stroheim and Speedwagon. After the event, Joseph's FP will go up by 1.
Requirements: Polnareff is in the party
Walk up to the door of the building directly to the right of the hotel, and Polnareff will start to complain about his stomach. You'll convince him to ask to use the toilet at a nearby house, and afterwards, you'll gain a whopping +3 FP with Polnareff.
At the reservoir, if your level's above 30, your SP is above 300, and your current day is under 30, you can help them find water to end the drought. After the event, you'll gain 1000EXP, +1FP with your party member, and -3 bad karma. In addition, if you triggered the event with Pixies, you'll also gain 10,000G.
There's a mansion to the northeast of town - enter, and as you progress, you'll be slashed for 20~30 damage by something invisible. These "danger spots" are set, and once you're slashed once, they'll remain gone until you leave that floor. Once you reach the 2nd floor, talk to the man in the bedroom to start a battle. Winning the battle nets you FP with whoever is in your party.
The dialogue after the fight can differ depending on what the player's Stand is and whether or not they have the 'Squeamish' trait.
Note: Mansion entrance is just right of the Tummy Troubles building and just left of the carpet-selling Merchant
The maps on the right highlight all the danger spots in red.
In the bookstore in the southwest part of town, talk to the clerk, and he'll offer you a Video Game from Japan. If Kakyoin is in the party, he'll stop you from buying the knockoff, raising his FP by 1. If you go alone or with another party member, as long as Kakyoin hasn't already warned you, you can buy the game - talk to Kakyoin afterwards and you can offer to give it to him, or brag about it. If you give it to him, the game won't be removed from the inventory, and his FP will go up by 2. Brag, and his FP will go up by 1, as will your bad karma. You will need 5900G or the clerk won't offer the game
If carried over to a New Game +, the Video Game unlocks the Dragon Question III minigame. See Japan for details.
Requirements: Defeat Joey in Varanasi
In the easternmost part of Karachi, there is an alleyway with a zombie walking around in the shadows near some barrels. Walking to the end of this alleyway and turning left will grant access to Joey's warehouse, which contains three floors. There are several treasures scattered throughout the area, and the only enemies found there are Joey Dolls. Events that play in the top floor depend on your gender and your current party member. After the event, if you are female, you will gain 1 to 2 FP if you were with Jotaro or Joseph, 1 to 3 FP if you were with Kakyoin, and 1 to 3 FP if you were with Polnareff (if you are Chubby, you will only gain 1 FP with Polnareff).
If you don't interact with the treasure chests in Don Cherry's mansion and in Joey's warehouse, you'll be able to press a switch on the black suitcase on the top floor, which will open up a hidden door to the basement.
Any enemies defeated while inside the building won't respawn unless the entire building is left and re-entered, rather than reappearing between floors.
3 at range M and 7 at range L - 10 in total. Defeating the fakes will cause them to regenerate. Despite their numbers, their power is high, so defense techniques will be necessary to weather the wave of attacks if your level is low. Weak to Fire and especially Light. The real Lovers is the one at the very top, normally second-to-last or last in the battle order (L distance).
Behaves the same as during the fight against Joey in Varanasi, but they have less HP and appear in groups of three instead of five. They're fairly easy to defeat with mid-to-long-range target-all attacks, so they can be useful for level grinding if necessary.
