Achievement Guide

So then, I've noticed that a few people have been worried about the missable achievements in this game. Fear not, with a few spoilers included, I will list the achievements in order and at what point they appear in the story. This is the first part of the achievement guide. I present the story achievements and included mini games.

Achievement Guide - Part 1 - Storyline and Mini-game Achievements **spoilers galore**




Closed Flying Fortress Door

You closed the Flying Fortress door without fighting the mecha robos.

Really early in to the game this one. Just after you defeat the land shark and escape from the underground ruins, you are beemed on to a ship. This is a rapid button pressing event, so get ready to bash A after running towards the door after the 5 or so robots appear.

Time in: Approx 20 mins
Note: Save point just before



Wagon Escort: Perfect
You completed the wagon escort with no damage to the wagon.

After you leave Talta Village on the way to find the villagers, you pass through the mountain pass and come in to the open. There will be a save point, so save and run in to the open and a cut scene will be triggered. The creatures that pop up are NOT random, they come in set places and there are 7 encounters in all. Learn where they spawn to make the task easier. Murbay did a summary of who comes what and where. Take a look below.

Quote:

After 2nd Corner
Fat Rat - Right Middle of Wagon

Before 1st Chest
Fat Rat - Left Middle of Wagon
Steel Tiger - Right Middle of Wagon

In first Boulder area (as you remove last boulder)
Fat Rat - Left Front of Wagon
Fat Rat - Right Middle of Wagon

1st Corner after boulder section
Fat Rat - Left Back of Wagon
Fat Rat - Right Middle of Wagon
Steel Tiger - Left Front of Wagon

In 2nd Boulder section
Fat Rat - Right Middle of Wagon
Fat Rat - Right Front of Wagon
Steel Tiger - Left Front of Wagon

In 2nd Boulder Section (after removing last boulder)
Fat Rat - Left Front of Wagon
Fat Rat - Right Front of Wagon

Save
Time in: 10-12 hours
Note: Save point just before



Pulled in the Flying Fortress

You helped pull in the Flying Fortress without angering the Gorgo giants.

Not long after the previously mentioned achievement. After you have looked round Jibral and taken a rest. You will be awoken at night to go battle the Tsunami. To trigger this event, make it to the roof of the castle and it will appear. This is another random pressing event, this time, not only A but other buttons as well. Hammer the correct button with out making the Gordo's wave their arms in anger.

Time in: 10-12 hours
Note: Save point just outside castle



Mechat Shooting Stage 1: Perfect

You cleared Mechat Shooting Stage 1 with no damage.

After boarding the mothership after the previous event. You will have to turn off 6 engines. As you turn off 5 a cutscene will be triggered and you and Zola will split up. Go through the portal and then before you board the mechat ship, save and then jump on. Remember, don't choose easy mode and watch the tutorial so you know what you're doing. Shoot the missiles out the sky with the guns (don't overheat them) and them lock on with the missiles to take down Nene. He starts at the front until he takes enough damage then goes to the back and sides until he takes enough damage and then finally he appears in front.

Time in: 12-14 hours approx
Note: Save point just before

NOTE: THE NEXT 5 ACHIEVEMENTS ARE IN QUICK SUCCESSION SO USE FREQUENT SAVES ON NEW SLOTS IF NEEDS BE. THEY APPEAR AT THE END OF DISC TWO SO THATS APPROXIMATELY 30ish HOURS OF STORY.


Rescued Kluke

You rescued Kluke without falling.

Kluke will get kidnapped by Nene, you chase them to the cavern but can't make it across. You go to Pachess town and get stuck. After you escape from the green shield that encapsulates Pachess town in the icelands. You will cross the chasm with some help from a friend. Head Northwest until you see a crater, you will notice it because it goes from the white snow to the brown dirt. SAVE HERE. As you run towards the crater (avoiding the robots that surround it if you must). This will trigger a cutscene. Just as Kluke is thrown and you pan to Shu running towards the camera. A time pressed achievement will begin, you will need to hit a button when you are prompted on screen. It asked me to press A on two separate occasions. I only did it once, so don't know whether it will remain the same.



Got to Nene Before Bomb Went Off

You arrived at Nene's location before the time bomb went off.

Straight after the previous achievement, you will be thrown in to a time based achievement. You have an hour to climb to the top of Nene's fortress. Thats 5 levels, but don't get complacent. There are numerous boss fights at the end of 4 of the levels which eat up time on the clock. The first two major boss fights on levels 1 and 2 take up over 10 minutes easily. On level 3 you will come across the "Shoot the Moons" achievement as seen below (takes off no time). Level 4 and 5 have minor boss battles. Take up approximately 7 minutes of time. Conveniently, there is a save point and a energising point at the beginning of every level. So use separate saves so you can always go back if you fail it.

PS - Don't forget beating one of each bad guy and getting all the chests for to add to your log book.
PPS - Battles take 30 seconds off your time.
PPS - Fighting more than one bad guy at one time will still only take off 30 seconds. So use that circle guys

**times are only an estimate so beware!!**



Moon Laser: Perfect

You got a bonus for completing the Moon Laser perfectly.

In the middle of the achievement above on the 3rd floor. I personally went back to it after I did the whole ship cause I had it on a different save, not recommended in some sense cause you get an "All Heart" level boost for doing it perfect, but so much harder this way. I personally, loaded up my save for level 3, cleared a path through to the final door, then ran back to create a new save. This way, if I failed, I only needed to run there in future. Otherwise, there is a checkpoint at the end of level 3 before you start the task, so if you fail, die and load the checkpoint.

To get perfect you must...

a.) Not take any damage
b.) Not hit the reverse of any moon.

A tough one in actual fact. My advice is to hold down the A and let go when you see the moon's shoot animation start and only then. Good luck guys. It can be infuriating.



Saved Kluke from Choking

You saved Kluke from being choked by Nene's collar.

Another button bashing event but this time you must hold down the left analogue stick at the same time. It starts just after you enter the throne room on level 5 of the ship when Nene is gripping Kluke's throat with that device. You must do it about 3 or 4 times. You should have a save for the beginning of level 5 if you fail it.



Escaped from Squashtrich

You escaped without being stomped by the Squashtrich.

End of the epic scene. Nene is just about to squash Shu with the Ostrich robot and it asks you to button tap a button again to fight against it. When you stop it. It will give you battle options. Just "Flee" for the achievement. Same save as the previous if you fail.



Summoned Shu's Shadow
You summoned Shu's Shadow.

Another button bashing achievement this one. This time in the town of Devour, very early on in to disc 3. Just after Kluke collapses. When you go to the Inn to visit her and then leave. Make your way to the cliffs and summon your shadow. Three really intense dexterity sessions this. 3 X A but amazingly fast!! I'm talking REALLY fast. Definitely doable, but you may want to make it a save point before you go up on the cliffs, just incase.

Mechat Shooting Stage 2: Perfect
You destroyed all the mechat base machine guns in Mechat Shooting Stage 2.

Where: South of the Coastal road. On your map as a yellow plus symbol.
When: Disc 3. Mechat is obviously needed... It's a space ship dammit
What to do: Take out all the machine guns on both parts.
What isn't required: You don't have to stop the damage. I got hit once or twice and still got the achievement.
Recommendation: Get the 8 mechat parts which are available at this point to make your life easier.

This stage comes in two stages.

Stage one - In stage one there are two objectives needed. a.) Destroy all the pink missile launchers and b.) Destroy all the machine guns.

The b.) task needs to be completed before the a.) task as it is optional. You will circle the lower part of the base to start with. Firstly take out 3 of the 4 pink discs and shoot the missiles they throw at you, look to the back of the ship for these (your left). Once you have taken out these out, focus on the turrets. 24 in all. They can't hit you, but systematically take them out, but still remembering the one pink missile launcher you have left and to destroy its missiles when you pass it. Once you are sure you have destroyed EVERY turret destroy the pink disc and then switch attention to the pink disc the other side of the missile launchers and take them out to advance on to the next stage.

Stage two - 3 objectives here. a.) Take out the laser cannons. b.) Destroy all the machine guns. c.) Destroy the final central mast.

Firstly take out the four circular objects (the laser cannons) before they take you out. Upgraded guns take these out easily, if not, use some missiles. As you are taking the cannons out, before you move on to the next one, concentrate your attack on the guns. There are 4 on each wing and there are some surrounding the central mast (be careful not to hit this just yet.) So you should be destroying the laser cannon, focus on the guns until you see the next cannon and then rinse and repeat. When you remove the cannon, you will see a pink missile launcher behind them. Don't worry about these just yet. When you have done a lap, the pink discs will now fire missiles at you, take them down and but if you take out the pink discs they will only regenerate for your next lap so its a little pointless. Take down the rockets by all means, but then focus on destroying all the machine guns. When you are 100% sure that all the guns are taken down, go full front assault on the mast with rockets and machine gun fire. If you took all the guns out, when the mast is destroyed, the achievement should unlock.



Mechat Shooting Stage 3: Perfect
You cleared Mechat Shooting Stage 3 with no damage.


Where: Northwest part of the map. Giant crater in the ground signified by the purple plus symbol.
When: Disc 3. Mechat is obviously needed.
What to do: Take out the land shark AND do it without taking damage.
Recommendation: Fully upgrade the Mechat

**WARNING: Most frustrating achievement on the game**
*** DOUBLE WARNING - Make sure you don't complete it while there are missiles in the air cause after you defeat the shark, the game locks but the missiles keep on coming (frustrated me a few times) ***

Again, this comes in two parts. Stage 1 and stage 2.

Stage 1 - Yellow Energy Bar
The first part starts off easy and gets tricky. The shark starts in front and drops a few mines now and then. Shoot the mines and keep the machine gun going in between. Hopefully you will have upgraded the Mechat so that the guns never overheat. After taking 75% of the sharks health, he will move to your left hand side and then fire about 4 missiles. Take these down and follow him to the back while continuing to fire the machine gun at him. Watch out for the rockets he launches as well, the split ones are tricky, one to the left and one to the right. Once the energy bar is empty, a cut scene will be triggered as he is about to fire his beam cannon.

Stage 2 - Red Energy Bar

After the very short cut scene, the shark will fire some more of those split rockets but sometimes with 3 or 4 missiles going across the screen. In between picking the missiles out the sky, fire the machine gun and missiles at the shark. Watch out for the super rocket attack which centralises about 10 down the middle. Just keep rinsing and repeating and take heed of the DOUBLE WARNING at the top and the achievement should unlock at the black screen after you kill the shark.



Logbook achievements.



Activated All Warp Devices

Activate all of the Warp Devices.

Warp devices can be activated by a warp key and are located at the major places in the game. Activate all these for an achievement. Chances are you will get most of these while playing through the story, but as soon as you can go to that place, they can be activated.

See this thread HERE for all the locations of them.


Removed All Barriers

Remove all barriers in the game.

There are jelly like barriers throughout the game. Five different colours. Blue, Red, Green, White and Black. As you go through the story, Shu and friends will pick up devices that can disable these barriers.

You can unlock the following barrier devices at the following places...

Blue - After visiting the robot town of Baroy.
Red - Defeating the damaged Defense Mecha robot - Ancient Factory.
Green - Pachess town after disabling the green barrier around the town.
White - Defeating the Iron Giant in Noluta.
Black - Sea Cube after boss fight with Azure Abyssal Dragon.

Check out this thread HERE for a list of where the barriers are. It comes from a Japanese gaming site, thanks to Jinx for posting.

NOTE - Not sure which barrier you are missing? Speak to the Fortune Teller in the Lal Mountains Sheep Tribe Camp for her to narrow it down to colours you are missing. Great help!


Completed Monster Record

Fill up the Monster Record by defeating every monster.

Fight and defeat the monster log book by defeating EVERY monster in the game. There are 290 in all. Be careful however, some are only available to fight once.

Got 1,000,000 Gold
Save your Gold: You need 1,000,000!

Golden Poo Snake
What you need: Need to be on disc 3, have a mechat, Shoes of Hermes (black device needed for barrier in Ancient Factory (ground floor), Poo Bracelet (blue barrier chest in Jibral castle, gate) and the Crown of the King's Ghost (use the transformation box in the Forest of the Dead).
Location: "Southern Deserted Island". Need a Mechat. Far south of the map.

First, stink everyone up (use either fresh garlic, stout garlic, dog collar) - brings them to you.
Equip the main person with Shoes of Hermes and Poo Bracelet. Gives you first hit and easy kill.
Assassin Level 23 - Loot & Assassin Level 32 - Treasure Hunt on Hermes equipped character - Gets you lots of gold, guardian hearts and ancient feathers while you attack the Golden Poos.

Should get between 0 and 40,000 gold every time, this amount is doubled when you have someone with the Crown equipped. On average circa 8,000. Try back attacking. It appeared I got more then. Should take about 3 hours or so but you are leveling at the same time.




Monster Achievements


Escaped More Than 50 Times
You fled from battle more than 50 times.

Flee from battle 50 times for this 0 point achievement. Can be unlocked when doing the "100 Monster Fights" achievement. You can keep track of how many you have done in your battle record.



Ambushed More Than 50 Times
You were ambushed more than 50 times.

Turn your back to an enemy and let them "Suprise Attack" you 50 times for this achievement.



Back Attack

Complete a Back Attack.

Simply attack a creature from behind to unlock this achievement. Best way is to level up then return to an earlier plot of land, maybe either side of the Wilderness Camp and they should flee in site, you then have 4 or 5 seconds to run and attack them. Could also use "Repel Aura" of the Monk class.



100 Back Attacks

Complete 100 Back Attacks.

See "Complete a Back Attack" for tips on where to go. Simply repeat that 100 times.



Multi-Monster Encounter

Complete a Multi-Monster Encounter.

Two or more monsters in an encounter circle will trigger a multi monster encounter. Complete one of these for an easy 5 points.



10+ Monsters in an Encounter

Win a Multi-Monster Encounter against at least 10 enemies.

You need to get at least 10 enemies in your encounter circle, battle them all and win.

Where to do it: Southern corner of the Giant Snow Fields (top left corner of your map)
When to do it: Disc 3

There you will find robot spawning robots by a machine going round a crater and they don't flee either. Just run round till you have a group round you there. Get attacked? Simply flee and you get a few seconds of free time when you leave the battle screen to get in a good position. You can get in excess of 14 in a circle so its quite easily possible to do here. Keep track of your most in your Battle Record.



100 Monster Fights

Make Monster Fights happen 100 times.

A monster fight happens when two species not only dislike you but dislike each other. You will notice one appear when you use the encounter circle and get two monsters in range. If their names appear in yellow, you have a monster fight on your hands where it is a big free for all. The achievement stipulates that you must only make these fights happen, not actually win them. Best way to do it is near Jibral, get a Chief Rolling Ripper (Beetle like) and a Cockatrice (emu like) in one battle circle and then attack and then flee. Rinse and repeat. 100 will take you less than an hour. Can also get the "50 Flees" achievement at the same time. You can keep track of how many you have done in your battle record.



Beat King Poo

Find and defeat the rare monster King Poo.

What you need: Need to be on disc 3, and to have defeated both Jumbo Poo and Corrosive Poo in the same region before he appears.
Location: Ancient Ruin Caverns near Talta (where you first landed after the original Land Shark scene.)
Recommended Minimum Level: 80 with really high shadows. 99's in more than 1 recommended.
Strengths and Weaknesses: Water. Plenty of waterus and Water sword do the trick. The double cast is great for casting prerevive and then attacking. Use - Double Cast, Resurrection, Endure, Prerevive.



Beat Golden Poo Snake

Find and defeat the rare monster Golden Poo Snake.

What you need: Need to be on disc 3, have a mechat, Shoes of Hermes (black device needed for barrier in Ancient Factory (ground floor) and Poo Bracelet (blue barrier chest in Jibral castle, gate)
Location: "Southern Deserted Island". Need a Mechat. Far south of the map.
Recommended Minimum Level: Any so long as you have Poo Bracelet and Shoes of Hermes.



Beat Gold Mecha Robo

Find and defeat the rare monster Gold Mecha Robo.

What you need: Loads and loads of strength, patience and magic skills,
Location: Ancient Factory - Towards the far side of the first room, near the Black Barrier.
Recommended Minimum Level: 85 minimum with really really high leveled shadows.
Strengths and Weaknesses: Strengths - Strong and good defense. Weaknesses - None He has 18,000 health points.

I personally set all my characters to level 99 Sword Attack front row and 99 Black Magic back row. I equipped them with an array of accessories to up their stats, but maily equipped them with Skill +8, Endure, Resurrection, White & Black Magic Level 8, Double Cast and if they have a high Support level (99), use Magic Essence as well.

I got it together with another robot using the encounter circle and used that to build my party ready for it. I used Quickus on the middle of the party fully boosted, I used prerevive on everyone, and used a fully powered Regenera. Then I destroyed the party to move on to the Gold guy.

Once there, I used plenty of Waterus doubled (2 x 1,000 ish), water sword (2,500 ish) all the way through, healing inbetween when necessary. I personally completed it without losing even one character once, so, it's not tough once you are leveled up.

Collection Achievements

Got Ultimate Weapon Bracelet
Find and obtain the rare Ultimate Weapon Bracelet.

Three parts needed: Mystery Part Alpha, Mystery Part Beta, Mystery Part Gamma
Once all three parts have been located. Take them to the research lab in Jibral Castle and speak to the research officer.

Mystery Part Alpha
Location: Mural Town
** Automatic pickup**

Mystery Part Beta
Location: Ancient Factory, at the top of the winding slope there are some Double Lancer stone statutes. One by one they will unfreeze. Defeat them all for a chest to appear.

Mystery Part Gamma
Location: Upper Mecha Base 1F (in a treasure chest by the lift)
Find Upper Mecha Base on disc 3, southern most yellow plus sign. By the lift on the 1F.



Got Final War Necklace

Find and obtain the rare Final War Necklace.

Three parts needed here again: Mystery Part Un, Mystery Part Deux, Mystery Part Trois.
Once all three parts have been located. Take them to the research lab in Jibral Castle and speak to the research officer.

Mystery Part Un
Location: Alamaru Village - Before fighting Jeelala and entering the huge double doors, do a 180, go right and fall down the fall boards.

Mystery Part Deux
Location: Sea Cube, Deepest region, after defeating the Azure Abyssal Dragon, it is in one of the two chests beyond the doors ahead.

Mystery Part Trois
Location: ""Western Deserted Island". Need Mechat. Southwest corner of the map.




Got All Dragon Items
You got all of the dragon items.

First defeat the Moody Dragon....

Moody Dragon - Gives Moody Dragon's Fang
Location: Underground River, to the right of the far save, by the respawning Kelolon, must defeat all Kelonon and Hyper Kelonon. Exit and it should appear.
Level to attack: At least a 35.
Advice: Don't go on the defensive at all. Just keep attacking. Physical attacks do the trick, when he starts to charge and fight back, that means he is close to defeat so keep fighting through it.


Then go speak to the Elder Baum in the Kelaso Village Underground (on the balcony). Then go after the hard remaining 4.


Blizzard Dragon - Gives Blizzard Dragon's Fang
Location:
A small area west of Kelaso, at the top of a small hill.
Level to attack: 80 makes him easy to despatch. Possible with less.
Advice: Use two white mages to heal your party and the other three to attack, use the a Bellybutton Ring with the water element so that one character takes no damage. Use Flarus Sword and any other fire based attacks to deal the most damage.


Phantom Dragon - Gives Phantom Dragon's Fang
Location:
The southern-most point of the Great Desert, near the Glass Spires.
Level to attack: 80 makes him easy to despatch. Possible with less.
Advice: ONLY use wind attacks, anything else will heal the dragon. Windus and Windus Sword work well, use the same Bellybutton Ring technique to keep one character alive, using any non wind users as healers.

NOTE: Corporeal attacks ADD health points so do NOT use them (try and find out the hard way if you must ).

**Don't forget to steal Nene's earring as well - You will need to equip - Assassin class - Ninja Swiftness & Treasure Hunt & Steal - Try and back attack if at all possible and save before you fight. If you don't get it first attempt, your attacks will miss and you will need to reload the save point again. Sucks but is necessary for the all items achievement.***



Amethyst Dragon - Gives Amethyst Dragon's Fang
Location: Follow the road South West of Jibral to the coast (Coastal Road). Follow that to the blocked part of the road and the dragon should spawn.
Level to attack: Level 80 makes this dragon an easy opponent.
Advice: Use Bellybutton of Wind if you have it. Dragon uses Wind attacks. Magic sword attacks do good damage. Personally found a good charged normal attack worked, equip Double Strike and it is effective as anything else. Used the two magic people to heal all the time (nothing else). With the Bellybutton ring, at least one of your characters is indestructible. Corporeal magic worked for me.

Spark Dragon - Gives Spark Dragon's Fang
Location: Gul Mountains, where the red barrier was.
Level to Attack:
Advice: Strong on the offense, weak on the defense. Use water attacks and Corporeal to inflict massive damage.



Dragon General Advice

- Try equipping all your characters with "Regeneration" (top level White Magic). Basically gives them an extra life.
- Prepare before each one. Make sure you have all your skills setup and your accessories done (for example, take off the Absolute Counterattack for the Phantom Dragon).
- Double Strike is an effective tool against them, as is magic sword combinations.
- Defense is the best option. Make sure you have full energy for your characters before starting the offensive. You have about 3 turns per every dragons turn, so make sure it stays that way.





Got Dragon Bracelet

Find and obtain the rare Dragon Bracelet.

Once you obtain all five Dragon Fang items, talk to Elder Baum in Kelaso Village. He will take the fangs from you and craft the Dragon Bracelet automatically, the achievement will unlock after your conversation with him.




Equipped All Mechat Parts

You got all of the mechat part types and completed all enhancements.

There are 9 missing enhancements. 7 of which are indicated by the orange plus symbols. The eastern blue plus symbol is the Mechat Docking base where you go to get the enhancements put on. The middle yellow plus sign indicates the Ancient Forest where you will get a piece AND fight a landshark. The bottom yellow symbol is the location of the Upper Mecha Base where you will find one part AND a Shooting Stage. The highest yellow plus symbol indicates the Mecha Base and there is a piece there.

Lock-On Upgrade Part B
Location:
Exile Forest Caverns, far wall after saving Gulu Gulu.
Need: Black device.

Missile
Upgrade Part B

Level Achievements

Stage 1 Levels - Max one class for each Shadow


Dragon: Max One Class

Max out the rank for one Dragon class. Must go from 98 to 99 without using a Heart enhancement.

First things first. Heed the warning above regarding the heart enhancement. DON'T TEMPT FATE!! If I was you, I wouldn't use them between 97-98 either, just incase. You don't want to ruin it so close to the end!

Anyway, on to business. There are various strategies. First recommendation is to get someone in your party up to Level 50 in the Barrier Class so that you can use Field Barrier 3 at it's full capabilities. It takes 5 MP to activate it and 1 MP for every enemy it defeats. It basically adds a force field round your character in the field stages. Think of a hamster in a ball and its very reminiscent. It only gathers SP from enemies and not experience and gold. Thats A LOT of SP gained before you have to restock your magic. Equip a MP regen and you should be able to walk around till you level up.

You can also leave the controller next to the spawn places I've named below and you can level up without much effort on your behalf.

*Warning - Enemies you haven't faced or stronger enemies break the shield*

Useful Items
Black Belt - Location: Chest in the Ancient Ruins Forest
Black Belt - Location: Chest in the Mural Village behind a red barrier
Black Belt - Nothing Man in Jibral - 1200 nothings
Black Belt - Can be stole from - King Poo Snake and Yeet Yeet (only in first swipe remember).
Eye Patch - Location: Swap Autograph Manuscript found in the desert region for it when you speak to the traveler on Disc 3 ast the Lal Mountain Camp.

Potential 5 there, one for each member of the party. They double the SP you receive from monsters.

Where to use it:

- Well, there is the Southern part of the Giant Snow Fields with the spawning robots.
- Respawning dead pelicans near Kelaso Village.
- Laser Field, north of where you start near a chest in an alcove with respawning Flying Needle Moles.
- Underground River where you fight the Moody Dragon, the respawning Kelolon.
- Golden Poo Island - Southern Deserted Island.
- Poo Island - South Western Island.

Using Heart Enhancements and when to use them.

For each shadow class throughout the game you can use them to level up your ranks by a level at a time. They can be picked up throughout the game or they can be....

Spoiler! (click here to reveal)


When to use them - After a certain level, the SP needed to level up remains the same for every level (100 SP). This is about level 60 so wait till then before you level up and make your use of them as efficient as possible.

Use on who? - Well, spread them around your characters or build up the lowest characters as to increase achievement efficiency.

** Achievement doesn't unlock if you use an enhancement between levels 98 and 99 so REMEMBER or pay dearly!!!**




Minotaur: Max One Class

Max out the rank for one Minotaur class. Must go from 98 to 99 without using a Heart enhancement.

See "Dragon: Max One Class" for details on leveling, tactics and general help.




Phoenix: Max One Class

Max out the rank for one Phoenix class. Must go from 98 to 99 without using a Heart enhancement.

See "Dragon: Max One Class" for details on leveling, tactics and general help.




Killer Bat: Max One Class

You achieved the highest rank for one class of the Killer Bat Shadow.

See "Dragon: Max One Class" for details on leveling, tactics and general help.




Saber-Tooth: Max One Class

You achieved the highest rank for one class of the Saber-Tooth Shadow.

Stage 2 Levels - Max every class for each Shadow


Dragon: Max All Class Ranks

Max out the rank for all Dragon classes. Must go from 98 to 99 without using a Heart enhancement.

Simply like the other achievement for one Shadow Level BUT this time, it is EVERY Shadow skill level for EVERY character. Long and arduous task. But settle in a respawning area and you can leave the controller for prolonged periods if you must.

See "Dragon: Max One Class" for details on leveling, tactics and general help.


Minotaur: Max All Classes

Max out the rank for all Minotaur classes. Must go from 98 to 99 without using a Heart enhancement.

See "Dragon: Max All Class" for details on leveling, tactics and general help.




Phoenix: Max All Classes

Max out the rank for all Phoenix classes. Must go from 98 to 99 without using a Heart enhancement.

See "Dragon: Max All Class" for details on leveling, tactics and general help.




Killer Bat: Max All Classes
You achieved the highest rank for all classes of the Killer Bat Shadow.

See "Dragon: Max All Class" for details on leveling, tactics and general help.




Saber-Tooth: Max All Classes

You achieved the highest rank for all classes of the Saber-Tooth Shadow.

See "Dragon: Max All Class" for details on leveling, tactics and general help.




Stage 3 Levels - Max every character to 99

Maxed Out All Character Levels
Make all your characters level 99.

Good monsters to battle for experience points...

Aqua Roamer
Location: Sea Cube, behind Jibral castle. Disc 3, Mechat needed.
EXP Points: 1 party = circa 1700 exp points

Jelly Jolt
Location: Sea Cube, behind Jibral castle. Disc 3, Mechat needed.
EXP Points: 1 party = circa 1300 exp points

**** Best Method By Far ****

Golden Poo Snake
What you need: Need to be on disc 3, have a mechat, Shoes of Hermes (black device needed for barrier in Ancient Factory (ground floor) and Poo Bracelet (blue barrier chest in Jibral castle, gate)
Location: "Southern Deserted Island". Need a Mechat. Far south of the map.
EXP points: 1100 every one.

First, stink everyone up (use either fresh garlic, stout garlic, dog collar) - brings them to you.
Equip the main person with Shoes of Hermes and Poo Bracelet. Gives you first hit and easy kill.

Optional but recommended steps

Assassin Level 23 - Loot & Assassin Level 32 - Treasure Hunt - Gets you lots of gold, guardian hearts and ancient feathers while you boost.

Use Lei to help improve a characters exp points gain by 50% per enemy defeated. Not many on the game however. Can only be found in the following 3 places...

1400 Nothings, Upper Mecha Base 3F and stealing off the Moody Dragon.

Most of the storyline achievements do have save points beside them but you are best creating a couple of saves incase you mess up at a certain point and miss something out.

I have just finished the item list (shall put it up shortly ) and that has taken more hours to do than the game itself So you can imagine just how much time and effort Webby has put into doing the guide Perhaps one of the hardest guides to do for a 360 game so far.

I added a few things in for you, the Mystery Part Gamma is in one of the Mecha bases in a chest to the right of one of the elevators. It should be in the item list now though. I also put in two of the dragons =)

So your saying just run around with you shiled barrier on and you will just level up buy just hitting the enemys? and how long does it take to do this, as i got a mate on my FL who has these three achivements;
Minotaur: Max One Class
Dragon: Max One Class
Phoenix: Max One Class

yet he has only had it for 2-3 days? and he is a level 55.

Your character level and your shadow class are 2 different things.

My current character is at level 43 but my dragon is at sword master class of 57. By running around as described above you only receive SP which is what is used to level your shadows. To level your characters you will need to fight battles and I believe the quickest way to do this is being looked in to.

Hope this has cleared up some of your confusion

You only earn SP when using barrier skill, not exp so it's not a good method to level your character but is the BEST way to max out your shadow skills. Btw, the SP value is half of what you would earn if you actually fought the monsters and as mentioned if you have never fought them or they are too close to your level it will break the barrier.

Personally I do all of my SP leveling in the Underground River, just running back and forth.. it will reset when you go through the door on either end. Also I would recommend doing SP training early before you level up your characters too far because the SP value gets smaller as you get higher level. Right now my entire part is all level 80+ and pretty much everything only gives me one SP, two if I'm lucky. Makes finishing off those last few shadow levels painful.

He's only maxed out one of the shadow skills for three people. If you didn't switch around all the various skills (white magic, swordmaster, monk, etc) then you could max one of them out fairly quickly I would think. So Shu's dragon shadow might be 99 in swordmaster and 1 in everything else, netting him a 30 point achievement. So if he was trying to have each person have a specific role in the party then it would make sense.

Personally I had no idea what those things were and after you hit 30 or so each of them pretty much stops giving you new skills so I bounced all over the place. At this point it pretty much doesn't matter one bit, all of my characters have 6+ skills maxed at 99 and I can use any of them to fill specific roles on the group. I can make Shu a white mage or a healer or a tank. Doesn't matter because by manipulating their gear & skills they are using they are interchangeable. Which is one of the downsides I've seen mentioned in some other sites reviews.

Golden Poo island is Golden Poos only which is the Southern Deserted Island.

Poo Island where most of the other Poos are (Zebra, Platinum) is the South Western Island.

They do for me

Make sure you have plenty of stink on (all characters preferably). Run around a bit, change direction, you'll get one a minute I reckon.

If their names appear in yellow, you have a monster fight on your hands where it is a big free for all. The achievement stipulates that you must only make these fights happen, not actually win them. Best way to do it is near Jibral, get a Chief Rolling Ripper (Beetle like) and a Cockatrice (emu like) in one battle circle and then attack and then flee. Rinse and repeat. 100 will take you less than an hour. Can also get the "50 Flees" achievement at the same time. You can keep track of how many you have done in your battle record.
Unless I'm mistaken, it doesn't seem possible to retreat when you do one of those fights. I never see any options in the battle menu to do so. I can retreat, however, if I'm ambushed, or if I just run into the enemy. I can't retreat after initiating a battle with the circle, though.

It just depends here, every character has the flee option on their battle bar EXCEPT Shu.

If you start the fight with Shu then you will not be given the option to flee. Instead here, just select defend and move onto the next character which will give you the flee option.

As soon as you flee and get onto the main map, bring up your field circle again as quick as you can to start that battle again. It does work because thats how I got mine.

Character limits =(



Mechat Shooting Stage 2: PerfectYou destroyed all the mechat base machine guns in Mechat Shooting Stage 2.

This Mechat stage can be found after you have access to your own Mechat, fly to the southern-most yellow marker on your world map. You should find a large flying purple base called Upper Mecha Base, as you get close you will see the A button in the lower left corner, push A and you will begin the stage. You need to destroy every gun in both parts of the base, you start low down where there are lots of machine guns/cannons and missile launchers. You should take out all but one of the missle launchers using your own missiles and then use the machine gun to take out everything else. Once you destroy the last missile launcher you move onto the next section.

For this part you want to take out the large spherical ring laser guns as quickly as possible to avoid damage, once they are all down destroy the missile launchers that were behind them. There are also a large number of machine guns near the centre of the base that need to be destoryed and four larger machine guns around the perimeter. You have plenty of time for this section as it only ends once you destroy the large spire at the centre, just take your time and be sure every gun is destroyed.


Mechat Shooting Stage 3: Perfect
You cleared Mechat Shooting Stage 3 with no damage.

This Mechat stage is found after you enter the Deep Zone (purple marker on the world map). You need to destroy the land shark before you die, which is easy. Taking no damage is a bit tougher. Before attempting this make sure you have a fully upgraded mechat so that you have no overheating guns and plenty of missiles. The land shark is either ahead of your or behind you during this stage, if it is ahead it will drop mines and fire missiles, if it is behind then it fires ring lasers and occasionally missiles. To begin with you want to hold down A so that you continuously fire. This helps to destroy the mines and missiles so you can get ahead of the landshark, where you can do more damage. As you overtake make sure to aim at the machine guns, but be aware that missiles are fired at you from ahead that you need to avoid. Once you are infront just use missiles to destroy the ring laser gun, which should do a massive amount of damage. Repeat this until you get a cutscene showing the land shark being destroyed.


And the minimum level for beating all of the Dragons is about 55-60. Anything above and you should trade the game in if you found them that difficult =P

Thanks. That's probably it, since I was trying to flee with Shu, and didn't even notice if I could with the others. lol

Homer: Probably misses his old glasses
Marge: We could get more involved in Bart's activities, but then I'd be afraid of smothering him
Homer: Yeah, and then we'd get the chair.
Marge: That's not what I meant!
Homer: It was Marge, admit it.

Learn where they spawn to make the task easier. Murbay did a summary of who comes what and where. Take a look below.


Time in: 10-12 hours
Note: Save point just before
lol ok i got to admit your times are definitely an estimate.
i am 15:43 hours into the game and i just got here.
but thats only because i am leveling up alot.

i just finished fighting Dullahan and the recommended lvl is 18 and i am at lvl 25 (i killed him in under 10 hits.

but ya, i just wanted to say that these times are def estimates
