I haven't seen one. But you really don't need it since you've beaten the game. Just drop it to Easy and blaze through the mandatory plot quests. You'll be done in under 10 hours if you skip all cutscenes and dialogue.

My mistake Tyger. I was reading multiple threads at once when I posted that. I just got confused. lol I was thinking that he had done his first playthrough on Apocalyptic and just wanted to rush through NG+ to hit level 30. That was the subject of the other thread I was reading. Sorry about that.

The advice on just running through the mandatory quests is still good though in my opinion. That's what I did to speed through mine. It took less than 12 hours, and I watched all of the cutscenes since I like the story.

Not sure why you need a guide if you've already beaten it once.

Did you do all quests on your easy run? If not, just take your time and get through them. Ita still incredibly fast even on apoc.

It's only a handful but I remember there are a few areas where you can kind of skip fights or pass them by. One was at the Crystal Spire.

^^ I like this idea of knowing what is skippable.

I was doing some random searches and came across this method for skipping the Drenchfort boss:

I haven't tested it though as I'm still on my first (non-Apocalyptic) playthrough, and I'm not sure if that video is specific to the 360.
