Infinite Undiscovery - Achievement Guide

The achievement guide is now complete and has been submitted to the main site. I will still update the guide if necessary and correct any errors. Any help will be appreciated as well as credited in the “Credits” section.

WARNING: This guide WILL contain spoilers, I keep them to a minimum wherever possible, but some cannot be helped. This is you one and only warning.


Introduction:
The purpose of this section is to explain how and when to unlock each of the achievements in Infinite Undiscovery.

The game has 50 achievements worth 1000 GS, there are no online achievements, and the game will require at least 3 playthroughs if you want the full 1000 GS. The 8 achievements listed under the "Storyline Achievements" section are unmissable. The remaining achievements are for completing various storyline tasks that can be missed, leveling your characters IC skills, making specific items, collecting items, and several achievements gained for fighting.


Summary:
A summary of the achievements found in Infinite Undiscovery.

- Estimated achievement difficulty: 6/10
- Offline: 50 (1000)
- Online: 0
- Approximate time for 1000 GS: 100 - 130 hours
- Minimum number of playthroughs needed for completion: 3
- Number of missable achievements: 12
- Glitched achievements: Yes
- Do cheat codes disable achievements: No cheat codes available
- Does difficulty affect achievements: Yes

Some people have reported a glitch with the "Stalwart" achievement details can be found here (LINK).


Normal Playthrough:
You can unlock a maximum of 969 achievement points in this playthrough, so this is where you should be getting the majority of your points.

The only achievements that you cannot unlock in this playthrough are the “Cherubic Gatekeeper” and “Seraphic Gatekeeper” achievements.

The "Compulsive" achievement requires you to have every item in the game at least once, this includes all the items dropped by enemies, bought in shops, unique items from bosses, chest, sidequests etc. If you intend to get the full 1000 GS you may want to leave this achievement until the Infinity playthrough, as you will want the best equipment available on that difficulty. This achievement can be unlocked on Normal or Hard if you prefer.

Near the start of the game you will be given the Emblazoned Sword, DO NOT SELL it as it is required for the "Hephaestus's Hammer" and "Compulsive" achievements.

Complete the achievements listed in the "Fighting Achievements" section as soon as you can, none of these achievements can be missed, and in most cases are easier to complete during the end game.

Follow the "Optional Achievements" section as you play the game, the achievements listed here are in the order you will encounter them.

Once you reach Port Zala at the start of disk two work your way through all of the "Skill Achievements" section, this is the best place in the game for materials, many of which will NOT be available as easily after leaving Port Zala for Kolton.

Once you complete the games main storyline you will unlock the teleporter in Kolton Palace, that allows you to access the Seraphic Gate.

Note: There is no achievement for completing the Seraphic Gate on Normal, but there IS for completing on the Hard and Infinity difficulties, so you may want to leave the achievements that require the Seraphic gate until those playthroughs.

If you decide to enter the Seraphic Gate now you can unlock all of the achievements listed in the "Crafting Achievements" and "Collection Achievements" sections, or you can leave these achievements until your Hard or Infinity playthroughs.


Hard Playthrough:
You will only need to unlock one achievement for this difficulty, this is also a good time to unlock any achievements you missed on your Normal playthrough.

Note: You will need to complete the game on Normal to unlock this difficulty.

- Cherubic Gatekeeper - 30 GS
This achievement requires you to defeat the final boss of the Seraphic Gate on the Hard difficulty, this achievement does NOT stack with the "Seraphic Gatekeeper" achievement.


Infinity Playthrough:
You will only need to unlock one achievement for this difficulty.

Note: You will need to complete the game on Hard to unlock this difficulty.

- Seraphic Gatekeeper - 1 GS
This achievement requires you to defeat the final boss of the Seraphic Gate on the Infinity difficulty, this achievement does NOT stack with the "Cherubic Gatekeeper" achievement.

- "Compulsive" - Requires every item in the game including the items from the Seraphic Gate. You can unlock this on any difficulty with the exception of Easy if you prefer.


Missable Achievements:
All of the following achievements can be missed, this is only a summary check the rest of the guide for specific details.

The Following "Optional Achievements":
Listed in the order you will encounter them.

- "Barrel of Lulz" - Make sure you destroy the barrels BEFORE leaving the prison.
- "On the Run" - If you get hit at all whilst carrying Aya load your game.

- "Imperial Guard" - If you take longer than three minutes load your game.
- "Marathon Man" - If you take longer than three minutes load your game.

- "Compulsive" - Requires you to have had all items in your inventory at some point, this does NOT mean that you need to have the items all at the same time. There are many items that can be easily missed in this game, see the "Compulsive" Guide for more details.

- "Artistic" - Requires you to learn all tunes, to do this you will need to collect Notations. The Concerto, Suite, and Capriccio Notations are all Missable, check the "Artistic" guide for specific information.

- "Hephaestus's Hammer" - Requires you to create the Azureal Blade, which requires the Emblazoned Sword. This sword is given to you early in the game and can be sold. If you sell the sword you will NOT be able to unlock this achievement.


Vouchers (DLC):
The following vouchers can be downloaded (for free) from the Xbox Live Marketplace. The vouchers are not available in some regions so the guide will make reference to them but will explain how to get achievements without them.

Infinite Undiscovery - Achievement Guide

Optional Achievements:
These achievements must all be completed during specific parts of the game; all of them can be missed, and some will give you in-game benefits when accomplished, such as experience, money, or items. These achievements are listed in the order that you will encounter them.

Note: These achievements can be unlocked on any difficulty, though many will be easier to complete on the Easy or Normal difficulty levels.

Barrel of Lulz - 15
Detonate all the barrels in prison.

Destroy all of the barrels during the escape from Graad prison at the beginning of the game. This can be done after Vembert falls off the edge, but must be done BEFORE leaving the prison through the door by the save point.

On the Run - 30
Deliver Aya to the village without getting hurt.

After passing through the Graad Woods you will need to take Aya to a town called Nolaan, to get this achievement you will need to accomplish this whilst taking no damage. This section is split into two parts:

The first will have you and several other characters moving through the Graad Woods, you cannot fight at this point and must rely on the other characters, this part is very easy just follow them and keep a good distance from any enemies.

The second part has you avoiding a dragon that is trying to kill you with fireballs. For this part you most stay behind cover whenever possible, starting with the ruins on the left of your starting position. Just wait for gaps in the dragons attacks and then run to the next piece of cover continue doing this until you reach the village.

You will have a save point before starting this section so don’t worry too much about getting hit, as you can load your game if necessary. Take your time and this shouldn't’t take more than a few attempts.

Video Demonstration:
There is also a glitch during this part of the game that will allow you to cause the dragon to face in the wrong direction. This can take numerous attempts to work.
Rock, Stock, and Barrel - 30
Use machines of war to destroy your foes.

To get this achievement you must kill 10 enemy soldiers using the catapults when attacking Prevant Castle, this is your only chance to get this achievement so do NOT destroy the castle gates until you have this achievement.

The easiest targets to hit are the enemies on the walls as they will not move, they are constantly replaced when killed so pick an enemy hold down the fire button, fire, then adjust how much power you put into the shot until you are able to kill the enemy. Once you have the power required figured out, rinse and repeat until you have 10 Kills.

Note: When you are in the catapults you are invincible, but the catapult is not, when it is destroyed it will quickly be replaced by another, so just move between catapults as they are destroyed until you have the achievement, then destroy the castle gates to move on.

Capell to the Rescue - 30
Rescue the imprisoned

For this achievement you need to rescue four allied soldiers from the four cells in Castle Prevant. It doesn’t matter if the prisoners are killed, as long as you saved them from their cells before they died.

WARNING:
As soon as you destroy the castle gates, and enter the castle the time limit starts. Make sure you save outside the castle, so you can go back and level or buy items if needed.

You will need Sunstones for this achievement they can be bought in the castle or at the Nolaan General Store. You may also want to stock up on Miraculous Medicine and any other healing items you can afford. Leveling your characters will help as well. I would suggest you try for this achievement on the Easy difficulty, as the enemies will do significantly less damage making it much easier to survive.

Time Limit:
The time limit allows you 4 minutes per soldier, so you will have 4 minutes to save the first soldier, 8 minutes to save the second, 12 to save the third, and 16 to save the fourth soldier. At the end of each of these 4 minute intervals a soldier is killed.

If ANY soldier dies before you rescue them you will NOT get the achievement.

Map:
A map including the location of all cells, keys, and treasure chests, routes 1 to 5 show where to go for each Cell Key and how to rescue each soldier.

(Castle Prevant - Map)

Note: You will need some Iron Metal and Marble for the fourth key. Iron Metal this is dropped by the Order Servants make sure you get 1 piece at some point whilst going through the Castle. Marble is dropped by the Gargoyles, or can be more easily found in chest 9. If you have the "A Voucher" downloaded from the Xbox Live Marketplace you can buy both items from Genma.

Route 1 (Red):
Follow Route 1 to the southern room to find the first Cell Key, now head to Cell 1 and release the prisoner. Make sure to walk into the room after opening it.

Route 2 (Yellow):
Follow Route 2 to find a guard, kill him and use the cell key he drops to open Cell 2.

Route 3 (Blue):
Follow Route 3 to the mouse making sure to follow the map carefully to avoid any traps. Surprise and kill the Gargoyle by the mouse and then connect to Rico and speak to the mouse to get the third Cell Key.

Route 4 (Green):
Follow Route 4 until you arrive at the second dark corridor where you will need to surprise three gargoyles, the best way to do this is using Aya’s Ravaging Raptor connect skill, you don’t need to kill them after surprising them, just attack them to disable their traps. This is a good opportunity to get Marble if you haven't already. You can also hug the wall opposite the gargoyles to bypass their traps completely, saving you some time.

Tip: The next route will take you to Edward who can forge the forth Cell Key, he is however able to craft as many keys as required, so if necessary you can skip talking to the mouse with Rico and head straight for Edward.

Route 5 (Orange):
Once you have Edward in the party have him create the fourth Cell Key, then save your game on a new slot. Now head all the way back to the cells, and open Cell 3 and Cell 4, it doesn’t matter if your party is killed on the way back as long as Capell makes it.

Video Demonstration:
This is a demonstration of a glitch for opening Cell 3 without using a Key. This is something that I've observed happen, but is difficult to replicate.

Infinite Undiscovery - Achievement Guide

Guardian - 30
Deliver the villagers without letting any of them perish.

You will start this achievement as part of the storyline.

For this achievement you will need to escort around a dozen unblessed villages, back to Sapran village from just outside of Fayel. Each of the villages will have a health bar and can be damaged. You will fail the achievement if any of the unblessed die, and get a game over if they all die. They can be damaged any amount and the achievement will still unlock, but none can die.

You will not have to escort the villages all the way back to Sapran, only to just west of the save point in this area, Rico and Rucha will escort them the rest of the way back to Sapran.

Try to clear out as many of the enemies in the area as you can without straying too far from the villages, and be careful as it is possible for enemies to spawn behind the villages, so if they start yelling check the area immediately. The villages will be following a set route so just stay with them until you notice a group of enemies, and you should get through this without much trouble.

Note: The enemies in this area do respawn.

Video Demonstration:

For the Children - 30
Rescue the child before he gets hurt.

You will start this achievement as part of the storyline.

The child this achievement is referring to is Leif, who is surrounded by three “Swamp Serpents” and a “Narbear”. You will start this achievement just after reaching the safe point during the “Guardian” achievement.

This one can be tricky and has a degree of luck to it, but basically you want to attack the enemies to keep their attention on you, start with the snake on the right using “Cutting Gavotte” (Battle Skill) as this will keep it in the air whilst you and Aya attack it, once it is dead move to the two snakes on the left. If the snakes get close together use “Dancing Rhapsody” (), you should be able to hit them all with this attack, keep attacking until they are all dead. Then focus on the bear until it is dead.

I had my party set to “Focus” for this fight so that Aya would focus on what I was attacking, this way I could kill the snakes faster. Try wherever possible to fight away from Leif so that he doesn’t get caught in the crossfire, and block the snake’s route to him when you are fighting them.

Note: I found that the snakes would often go straight for Leif, whilst the bear would attack my characters, so focus on the snakes before going for the bear. Also despite what Aya says it is impossible for you to hurt Leif.

Once you have defeated the bear and the three snakes, Leif will be grabbed by a “Garuda”; you will now have a time limit before it flies away with Leif, which will cause a Game Over screen. To unlock the achievement you most connect to Aya and use her “Ravaging Raptor” skill to shoot the “Garuda”, it will then drop Leif and the achievement will unlock.

This achievement is likely to take several attempts.


Reckless Driver - 30
Use the carts in the mine.

You will unlock this achievement for killing ten enemies in the Bihar Mines using the mine carts. Bihar Mines is a completely optional area, you do not need to enter the Mines at all for the storyline. The Mines can be entered either from the Oradian Dunes or the Oradian Mountains.

Note: This must be done in one trip through the mines, as leaving and then re-entering will wipe the number of kills so far.

I found it very easy to get this achievement when entering from the Oradian Mountains (reached from Fayel), immediately in front of you when you enter the mine there will be a mine cart, stand behind it and wait about 5 seconds and three enemies will walk onto the tracks. Hit the mine with any attack and it will run into all three killing them instantly.

Then on the left (of the entrance) about midway down the tunnel is a call pipe examine this and a large group of enemy will run out of the door, run to back to the mine cart (now at the other end of the tunnel) and hit it again whilst they are on the tracks (be careful as this can kill your characters as well), there are enough enemies for the achievement to unlock. If the achievement doesn’t unlock either run out of the mine and come back in to try again, or move further into the mine and kill a few more enemies using the mine carts.

This achievement can be first unlocked whilst you are on the way to Port Zala, and can be unlocked at any point after this, even after completing the game you can come back here and unlock the achievement during the end game.


This achievement cannot be missed.

The Tide of Battle - 20
Watch out for the tsunami.

For this achievement you are required to defeat the Order Knight Niedzielan and destroy the Cerulean Chain without letting any of the tidal waves hit either Capell or any of the other characters you have with you. This fight is on the Port Zala coast, so make sure to save in the port before going to the Zalan Coast.

To win this fight you will need to attack Niedzielan until he is stunned (he will kneel down) then you can attack the chain. You will need to repeat this process three times, the third time you will kill Niedzielan rather than stunning him, and will destroy the chain in one hit rather than damaging it.

During this fight tidal waves will be hitting the beach your team will warn you around 10 seconds before they hit, but I would suggest taking cover behind the rocks before this. You will know when you are taking cover as Capell will put his sword in the sand and lean over slightly.

An alternate strategy for this achievement can be found here (LINK).

Strategy:
For this fight I used Capell, Edward, and Gustav the reason for this was that they are all melee fighters and so would be able to focus attacks on Niedzielan and still be close to me (and the cover we would need to run to).

Note: None of these characters have any healing spells so make sure to stock up on healing and reviving items in Port Zala before starting this boss fight.

Infinite Undiscovery - Achievement Guide

“The Tide of Battle” - Continued:

Tip: Use Capell's Enchant ability to put an Earth attack enchantment on your characters, this will last 10 minutes and will cause much greater damage to Niedzielan and the chain. You can buy the sandstone required from Port Zala, just remember to put the enchantment on all of your characters.

Now once the fight starts immediately kill all of the monsters in the area that are assisting Niedzielan, killing them will make the fight easier as although they don’t do much damage they will interrupt your attacks, and combos meaning that stunning Niedzielan will take longer.

Once they are dead everyone will attack Niedzielan he should go down pretty fast with everyone attacking him at once. When he does attack the chain for about 10-15 seconds and then run and hide behind one of the large rocks, make sure to put your sword away so that your allies will stop fighting and follow you.

Note: I found it best to take cover before your team mates tell you to hide as you are not given much time after they tell you to get behind cover.

Once the tidal wave has hit the beach the enemies will respawn, start by killing them, then stun Niedzielan, then attack the chain, now take cover from the tidal wave. You will need to do this one more time at which point Niedzielan will die and you can destroy the chain.

Once this is done both the “The Tide of Battle” and the “Cerulean Savior” achievements will unlock and you will receive 20,000 experience points.

Note: I spent a good amount of time trying to kill Niedzielan before attacking the chain, and now believe it is impossible to kill him until you have attacked and damaged the chain twice.

Video Demonstration:
This video shows an alternate way of getting this achievement. For this strategy you will need to have Capell at level 33 so that you can use his Reginleif battle skill. Simply keep using this skill to deal heavy damage to both Niedzielan and the chain.
Imperial Guard - 20
Hurry to the empress.

For this achievement you need to reach the Empress's throne room in under three minutes.

You will have a timer at the top of the screen when you enter the city of Halgita. Run forward until you reach the door, then turn right. Follow the corridor around until you reach the stairs, follow the stairs to the top. Continue following the path up the small staircase, then take a left through the door and then up another staircase. Once at the top of the stairs take a right past the stairs and then approach the door on the right to unlock the achievement. Keep your sword sheathed the whole way and ignore all enemies and you shouldn't have any trouble reaching the throne room in three minutes.

Marathon Man – 20
Hurry to the village under attack.

For this achievement you need to reach Sapran within three minutes. After returning to Port Zala (after completing the events at Dais), you will need to head to Fayel after the events here you will need to go back to Sapran. As soon as the cutscene at the castle end you will be outside Fayel.

Put your weapon away (this makes you run faster) now follow the left wall along until you come into a large open area, now follow the right wall until you arrive in another large open area. Head northeast to another large area. Now head to the east until you arrive in the area with the Save point. From here just head south until you arrive at Sapran.

Video Demonstration:

End Game Achievements:
These achievements can only be unlocked after completing the game, and loading the clear data.

Big Daddy's Back - 49
Sigmund joined your party in the Seraphic Gate.

After completing a playthrough of the game you will be asked to save the game. Now when you load up that file you will be able to access the Seraphic Gate. To get here you must go through a teleporter off to the side in Kolton Palace.

You will need to continue through the Seraphic Gate until you find yourself in the Oradian Dunes, now head as far along the Dunes as you can, you will eventually find a teleporter that leads you to Vesplume Tower. Once there you will find yourself controlling just Capell. You will now need to defeat Shadow Sigmund. Once you do he will join the party and the achievement will unlock.

Sigmund can be defeated easily by using the Grinn Valesti Battle Skill. Run towards him and attack, then move to the side to dodge his attack, then use Grinn Valesti again. Continue this several times to defeat Shadow Sigmund. If you have taken a lot of damage then sheath your weapon and run away, once you are a good distance away from Sigmund use a healing item on yourself and then continue the fight.

Note: You can only access this area on Normal or above difficulties.

Details on the Seraphic Gate can be found here (LINK).

Cherubic Gatekeeper - 30
Defeated Ethereal Queen in Hard mode.

For this achievement you will need to defeat the Seraphic Gate's final boss the Ethereal Queen on the Hard difficulty

To unlock Hard mode you will need to complete the main story on the Normal difficulty.

Note: You do NOT have to play through the Seraphic Gate on Normal to get this achievement.

Some tips for fighting the Ethereal Queen can be found here (LINK) and a guide here (LINK).

Seraphic Gatekeeper - 1

Infinite Undiscovery - Achievement Guide

Fighting Achievements:
All of these achievements can be completed in any order at almost any point during the game. I will list what is required for each, the first place you can get them easily, any tips and tricks that will make them easy to get, and any other useful information.

Surprise! - 5
Attack the enemy without being detected.

Surprise an enemy once.

See "Blitzkrieg" for more details.

Blitzkrieg - 10
Keep on surprising the enemy.

This achievement requires you to surprise enemies 10 times.

To surprise an enemy you must get within range without them being alerted (seeing or hearing you), and then striking them. This will make all your attacks critical attacks, increases your exp gained by 50%, and increase the odds of a rare item drop.

A good place to surprise enemies is in the Graad Woods at the beginning. Connect to Aya and then use either of her skills (Peacock Plume or Ravaging Raptor), both can be used from a good distance from your target, and will even work on the enemies that carry lights.

Using this method you should have this achievement before leaving the Graad Woods, regardless you should have this achievement easily by the end of the game.

Infinitely Unobservant - 10
Keep on getting surprised by the enemy.

Get surprised by the enemy 10 times to unlock this achievement.

Being surprised by the enemy will cause your AP to fall to zero, and for you to become 100% susceptible to critical hits.

The enemies most likely to surprise you will be archer enemies, making Prevant castle the first really good place for this achievement; it’s also very easy to be surprised in the dark.

You should easily have this achievement before the end of the game.

Groundbreaking - 20
Work on your ground combos.

For this achievement you must perform a 30-hit ground combo. I did this whilst fighting the boss Semberas at Sapran village. As with the “Aerial Acrobat” achievement, I used Capell’s “Cutting Gavotte” Skill, with my party set to “Combo”.

For this fight you will have the four characters you picked, as well as Sigmund, kill all the enemy soldiers and then focus everyone on Semberas, you shouldn't have much trouble getting this here.

Another place to easily get this achievement is on top of the Vesplume Tower, after you defeat Dimitri, you will fight Leonid. I was able to get the hits up to 60 during this fight.

Aerial Acrobat - 20
Work on your aerial combos.

For this achievement you need to execute a 20-hit aerial combo. To do this set your party to the “Combo” stance using and on the D-Pad, then use Capell’s “Cutting Gavotte” Battle Skill to knock an enemy into the air, then just attack them, your party will do the same, once you hit 20 the achievement will unlock.

To set a skill hit the button, then the Skills tab, then the Battle Tab. Then place “Cutting Gavotte” onto both the and buttons.

A good place to easily get this achievement is in Vesplume Tower you will encounter “Crystal Gargoyles” as they are already flying keeping them in the air is very easy.


Down to Earth - 20
Work on your down strikes.

For this achievement you need to execute a 20-hit down combo.

Party:
Capell – Set Slashing Cannon to the button and Eternal Refrain to the button.
Aya – Set as none and as Snipe Arrow.
Vic – Set as none and as Butterfly Rush.
Komachi – Set as none and as Thistle.

Now set your party to “Focus” and unequip all of your weapons, by doing this you will minimize the damage you cause to the enemy allowing you more time to get the combo.

Strategy:
Once you have completed the game, load the end game save and head to the teleporter in Kolton Palace, this will take you to the Seraphic Gate, keep going through this area until you teleport into the Bihar Mines. Now just up ahead are a group of Lumpers kill them and continue on, just before the elevator there will be a door on your right. Inside this room is a Gold Chest Mimic.

Once all your skills are set attack the mimic with a Slashing Cannon to knock it to the ground then attack with Eternal Refrain. At the same time your team mates will attack with their Skills. You can also connect to one of your team mates if you want to trigger a Skill yourself.

Tip: After using the Slashing Cannon ability wait for the enemy to be half way between the highest point it reaches and the floor.

Since this strategy relies heavily on the AI to attack at the right moment. A significant amount of luck is required. However keep trying and you should get it within a few attempts.

Note: The above strategy is intended for Normal or higher difficulties; if you are playing on Easy you can use the Jewelled Cabinet Mimic in the Bihar Mines in the same way.

Creme de la Creme - 30
Cooked a Heaven and Earth Dish.

Made by Rucha, she must be at IC cooking level 6.

Theres is a quest in Helgita where you are asked for some ingredients to make the "Ultimate Dish". This needs to be completed before the achievement can be unlocked.

Requires the following items to cook:

- 2 Sliced Rare Salmon - These can be found in the Port Zala section of the Seraphic Gate, dropped by the fish type enemies (Real name....................).



I found a lot of this fish in the Pieria Marshlands (1st playthrough) dropped from the fish during and after the dragonfight "Mantifish"

Don't smash them - the only chest you need to smash is one in the prison at the start of the game. Once you go to Kolton a character called Vic joins the party, he can open locked chests. See the Compulsive guide for more information on treasure chests.

I've found a really good way to get Atlantis metals other than grinding the 3 gigas in the forest level. On the port from the desert to the plains, there is that one gigas. If you port from the plains to the dunes, you can Grin Velesti(sp?) and one shot surprise attack. Literally takes 30 secs to port in, kill, and port out. I got 10 metals doing this in ~5 mins.

Few questions I do have though:

Is ring of life a Eugene craft? My Eugene is lvl 5 (too lazy to convert the metals to make horseshoes). It's the last piece I need to craft the sword needed to craft Ed's god weapon, no clue where to get the pieces though, lol.

Does anyone have a clue as to what the max amount of fol is? I have 30 mil (make a ton of gil off of the boss weapons after beating the Etheral Queen) and still no achievement. If it's 99 mil all I gotta say is, f a 20 point achievement. =P

I remember talking to her about that when I first went to Fayel, not seen anything about it come up since.

I had the same problem, I searched around Port Zala and found nothing when I was first there. I have heard that the tail is meant to be given to the man in the warehouse. I plan to check when I get back to Port Zala.

Well done, thats the highest I've never heard anyone get a down combo that high. Before the strategies for getting the achievement came out I was thinking that the Diminuendo Dive would be the best move for knocking the enemy down, certainly seems to have worked for you .

You can do the cooking achievement in Nolaan if you like, that was how it was written in the guide in the first place. I changed it so that all the achievements could be done in one place. I've added a note to the guide that you can use the same method in Nolaan if you like.

@ Scable Logo - Thanks for the info I've edited the guide.

@ Geigaman - I intend to we-write the crafting section once I get to that area, so suggestions like the one you just made will be added then.

If you talk to Edward after curing him in Kotos, you can talk to him and he gets a new Trait, sometimes he will get a bit more xp or something like that.

Its missable, did it when playing on normal, but missed it on hard. And you cant get it later in the game.

Maybe theres more of these?

I have tried following the steps of the strategy for the Capell to the Rescue achievement but no guard will open cell 3, after waiting, one will spawn inside the cell and kill the prisoner...

So I discovered another way to do it and it should work with anyone:

Here's what I did

1# Get the key from the chest & release the prisoner in the first cell you see.

2# Kill the jailer around the corner for the key and release the second prisoner next to the first cell you pass.

3# Now get the key from the mouse in the first dark gargoyle room. Run back to the entrance and save on a new slot.

4# Now reload the game and continue towards the last two cells.

5# On the way you will notice two guards running towards the cells. Stay behind the wall on the edge of the corner and keep an eye on them, 1 will move towards cell 3 while the other runs towards you, back up when he does and keep your distance a bit so he can't see you. If he sees you, reload the saved file and try again. An exclamation mark will then appear on the guards head & run towards cell 3, as soon as he does that, sprint towards cell 3 & quickly enter the opened cell to save the prisoner.

6# After dealing with the guards, you may now use your 3rd key to open up the last cell and get your well deserved achievement + situation bonus!

It worked for me, hope it works for all of you!

you can get bronze metal later in the game if you get 3 pieces of special wood to upgrade a shop but it is easier to do it from port zala now.

Do all of the IC achievements in Port Zala except writing. I would buy 99 bronze just in case.

No need at all, you can come back and buy the weaker weapons if you need to (which you probably won't).

If you have all the skills maxed (except writing) then yes time to go to Kolton. I would make a save a Port Zala though just in case you have missed something.

Last Achievement discovered on that Japanese Wiki:

試練を乗り越えし者 Hardのイセリア・クイーンを倒す 30
"By overcoming the ordeal" - "Hard to oust the Queen ISERIA" - 30

It looks like it will be defeating the Etheral Queen on hard. Could've been worse...
