Hmmm... been a while, so I can't say I remember this all that well... but I do recall that light magic aside, everything you need to get through that shadowy door is available to you within the Ice Ridge of Noltia itself. I honestly think there may be a treasure chest you missed somewhere - even if you think you've explored the whole area, it's very easy to miss one branch here or there.
Thanks, I'll try to run around some more and see if there is a ches somewhere.
I always thought Tyalmath was one of the easier Ys II bosses.
Anyway, to anyone else wondering, the item in question is the Mirror of Anti-Illusion (Nightwolve/Deuce mistakenly (?) called it the Illusion Mirror), found on the far left side of the first Ice Ridge of Noltia screen. You'll need something else to get to it, though...

I'm running around in the lava area feeling a bit under-leveled. It takes 30 hits to kill some of the tougher mobs in there. But they give good XP so I may just run around, save often and try to gain a few levels
