If you're using Faize against that boss then you're on your 2nd playthrough? And it says 4 spawn killed? That's what mine says now and I'm in my 1st playthrough's endgame... so does the count stop there?

How about using a Fresh Sage then a greater heal (the name evades me at the moment...) as that's rated for a 70% of total health heal?

Yes, I am on my second playthrough and no it continues, it is up to 8 now.

I just went through the Final bosses in the Palace of Creation and thus hopefully have 6 more Grigori. (Not sure since the only 2 that count on the monster catalouge are the Apostle of Creation and Sataniel.)

So Now I have 11 Grigori kills with Faize( + 8 if you count the 4 Kobakiel Spawn ). I will stop counting the Kobakiel when I get to 55 Grigori :S.

Takes about an hour per run though. Not counting the ending's since you can't skip them.

Well, the two people who have the trophy are Edge and Myuria, neither of them have a 70% spell but I tried experimenting since I don't have Myuria's yet... I killed Myuria, used Fresh Sage on her for 30%, used Ripe Berries on her for another 30%, and then used her Healing lv 10 spell which does 40%. It didn't work ultimately, it's healing for 99 too many points. I think there's a problem when it rounds the numbers for the percentages and it just doesn't add up.

Also, I'm not sure if they can heal anyone to capacity or it has to be them. It's probably anyone but when I did Edge I had him heal himself and if that's the case item usage is further complicated by his Appetite skill which increases the effect of HP recovery items by an undisclosed amount. I'm sure you could figure the % of that out but anything higher than Blueberries was healing him completely so there's not much point in figuring it for him. Like I said you can probably heal anyone but I was being cautious since it seems so complicated.

And Homacruz: Are they sadistic enough to make everyone sit through the unskippable endings a minimum of 5 times? Nevermind... don't answer that

I'm at a loss for doing Sarah's "Recover exactly 777 HP" BT. I assume I have to manipulate a character so that his max HP is say 2506 with Healing restoring 31%. Problem is, most have more than this amount. Is there a better way to do this one?

edit: I've been thinking about the wording. I guess it could be as simple as say healing Edge when his HP is 9223/10000, effectively healing him for 777 HP. That would be certainly be easier to set up. Or is Sarah supposed to heal herself? Man, these things need to be more specific.

edit 2: Nope that didn't work.

I sure as heck hope not. :P But we will see what happens.

I might as well add that apart from Faize, Commander Kenny is one of my favorite characters from this game.

As a sidenote an easy way to get Arumat's 5-1 HP Remaining trophies:

When you first get Arumat keep his auto healing ability at 1.
Create a monster jewel that adds +100 HP and equip it to him.
Go into battle and use the DANGER DO NOT DRINK to reduce his hp to 1 and then equip the auto-healing ability in battle.
Wait 1-4 iterations (2-5 HP Remaining BTs respectively). Unequip auto-heal and win the battle, then unequip the monster jewel that adds +100 hp.
Go into battle and poison him with a poision cider and wait 1-4 iterations and aquaberry him and you will be at the HP needed for the amount of iterations you waited.

Easiest way I can tell you is to blindside the enemy and attack from behind. If you need to hit it once or twice to lower its health before the blindside.

I'm pretty sure it means that the enemy has to be behind you, I've gotten it with Arumat but not with Meracle yet.

And it could mean something else entirely, but I have a feeling I'm right.

from my testing of the BT I think you're right Dexx, Arumat preforms a special backwards swipe when his traget is behind him, and I got the BT when he did that, same with Meracle (I think it was Meracle..)

I'm just now at the Millitary Base I can give it a shot at getting the trophy both ways soon as I get Meracle and update it.(I've beaten the beast once but going for 100% for him right now.)

If you work out the math, a lvl 10 healing spell actually heals around 41% of your total hp.
You just need to heal, subtract that amount from your max hp, and manipulate your hp down to the amount needed via poison and weak enemies.
Then heal yourself, and you're done.
It can be annoying, but thats how I got them done.

It actually did around 40.0002% or something similar, the spell desrciption claims it's 40% but yes you have to manipulate the damage yourself. I don't like dealing with the weak enemies, I prefer fogging/beserk scarving members of the party and handing them the scumbag slayer, it's much faster than the piddly-ass monsters.

Yeah I started out with the piddly-ass monsters and did the infomercial "There has got to be a better way!" and figured it out.

I'm having problems trying to get the recover exactly 777 hp trophy for Sarah as well that was mentioned earlier when I first got her on my team when she was healing other teammates I'm pretty sure she was already healing more than 777 hp.. so how would one obtain it?

Try taking off her gear and maybe look for an item that will dump her INT stat. I'm fairly sure that decreases the power of spells which would cause her to heal for less.

If that doesn't work you can try making monster jewels out of Spriggan, a monster in the Cave of the Seven Stars... it has an ability that will lower the max HP of a character by half. By that point your characters will probably still be too high in levels no matter how many times you synthesize that but for future playthroughs...

I thought healing spells healed a percentage of HP based on the skill level? I'll have to test that out. Otherwise going the monster jewel route that Dexx mentioned sounds like a good plan.

Here's one to scratch your brains at, was fighting Ring Beast (wandering Dungeon) with Arumat and used Dragon's Roar on one of his adds, got the Deal at least 90,000 points of overkill damage battle trophy from killing it. Still don't even have the deal at least 70,000 damage battle trophy yet with him.


uhh?

How much damage did the Dragon's Roar do? Overkill damage is usually the amount of damage you caused in excess of what killed the enemy. So say the enemy had 100 HP left. To do 90,000 Overkill you would have to deal 90,100 damage.

At least that's how I read it.

Anything good to use to cause paralysis on a enemy?

I noticed that I don't have any items to inflict paralysis on a enemy and don't think there are any items you can make that cause this status effect... I'm asking since I need to inflict this status to get some of reimi's battle trophies in the game.. any spells that give a good chance to paralyze a enemy or anything anybody can think of? Still having no luck on Sarah's 777 exact heal trophy as well.. don't think really anybody has got this one yet as well.

Yeah pants, but in order to deal 90K in overkill you need to deal 90K, which is more then 70K :P Get what I mean?

The "Deal xxx overkill damage" trophies add in all the damage that is done to the enemy, regardless of the number of times it is hit.
If you use a rush combo, all possible hits from the attack will connect, even if the first hit kills the monster.
It will then add all the damage up and everything above and beyond the monsters HP is "overkill damage"

For "Deal xxx damage" the amount of damage required must be dealt in ONE HIT. Attacks that hit multiple times CAN work, as long as they do the required 70,000 or 99,999 damage in one single strike.

Hope this clears that up.

from japanese wiki, level10 healing spell does 40% PLUS 100 HP.
that means if you want to do "just healing" arts for Edge and Myuria, kill any characters, use the potion that res with 60% HP restore, and then find a monster to take 100 more HP.

kill enemy while in fog stage... there are many arts like kill enemy in poison, paralyse, fog, freeze mode etc...

all of them can be done by synthesis the damage 1 weapon with those specific effect. Why use that damage 1 weapn that only give you one time of synthesis? because you don't want to 1 hit KO them before they get the effect.

The most easiest way for 2-5HP kill is by using convert, HP won't drop when it hits around 1000, then use a poison potion (sorry i don't know exact the potion name as I'm on Jap version). it takes 526 HP per tick for 99999HP so get sarah prepare to cure him after 1 poison tick, then wait till monster to take the remain 500 hp around...

I done those 2-5HP arts in 15mins just wait for a little bit luck of taking out the HPs...
