Made some revisions to the roadmap, added in a sweet banner courtesy of rokkyrok, and worked a bit more on the MN tips thread, which is now linked. Going to hold off on submitting the guide for the full month period x360a asks for, so ideas and other bits of information are always welcome!

I'll be working on that sometime in the near future. The Master Ninja tips thread I created has a lot of information that will apply to those trials though. I'm actively working on finishing that up at this very moment.

EDIT: Just finished the Master Ninja tips/guide. That took significantly longer than I thought but it should cover every tricky part of the game on that difficulty in decent detail. Feel free to check it out. It is linked in the Roadmap as well.

since the free weapon DLC comes out next wednesday, it would be cool to check if the weapons lower the difficulty for certain fights.

afaik only ~7 gamers cleared the master ninja trials(guess the best way is to do it in coop) and no one made it through all ultimate ninja trials. I've heard that new trials will be added via DLC and again, maybe these will be a tad easier than the original ones.

I have a sneaking suspicion that the scythe will make the trials much easier. That will be especially true if it retains the utterly insane properties of it's aerial XY strings. If the claws still have forward+YXY those will be pretty solid too. Either way I'm not submitting this until the full month window is up, so there's time to check it all out.

If you have at least 1 friend who is willing to boost you have a faster way than grinding one trial over and over again.

Setup:
Map: Doesn't matter as long as you know the spawn areas
Outfit: Choose the same color for an extra 500XP bonus per kill and either the same headgear or armor for an extra 1000XP bonus per kill.

Boosting:
Now for the killing part. If you are really lucky you start with the "life of a killer" contract, which is the best what can happen. 1st this contract doesn't change until you die, which shouldn't happen in a boosting session. 2nd it gives 5000XP instead of 3000XP as the other contracts. The worst case is a Falcon Dive contract, as it is time consuming and annoying.

As soon as the match starts the Killer runs across the map to his victim and starts killing and fulfilling contracts. If you don't start with "life of a killer" you may receive it after a few kills. The fastest method for a kill is a head shot as long as you have arrows, then switch to ghost kills and if it is available always do a UT kill for an extra 1000XP steel on bone bonus.

Fazit:
The best result was something around 395k in 5min, but it is definitely above 200k per match/5min if you do it 1on1 with 27-32kills in the time limit. Since I don't have enough willing friends to test boosting with a 1on2 setting I guess you will get more XP per match.

If you have something for me to add, please comment or send me a PM

Made a couple minor revisions but that was pretty damn good for a secondary language. Thank you very much for the addition. Added and cited!

Isn't 8/10 difficulty a little low for a game nobody has completed so far?

I did the difficulty when I wrote the guide and haven't touched it since. Once we work out whether you need to exploit the AI to finish trials a la Sigma 2 I will update it. Can't submit it until a month has passed anyway.

Beating the Game on HARD and then just reloading the last Chapter on other difficulty.....is it still achievable after the title update?

For "Hayabusa Style Grand Master", I strongly suggest you pick up the Crystal Skull if you're working on it in Clan Battles. It multiplies all the experience gained by 1.5.

Which title update? Do you mean the weapon DLC? I would assume so. It's not a glitch. The achievement is awarded once the final checkpoint is cleared on a certain difficulty. That isn't likely to change and TN has never changed achievement behavior with a patch before.

I had a small like 900kb update today, but realized that it won't affect it since it should unlock as im beating it on higher diff.

that dont matter, they dont stack, if you beat hard you get the cheevo for hard but not normal and hero.

you can however reload the checkpoint and change to normal and then get it and oddly this also pops the hero one too but beating it on hard will not stack them

even if they did patch just remove update

well, currently the DLC achievements are glitched. I started the game and it was updated to 55 achievements. unlocked 100kills with claws and game reverted to 50achievements.

and here is an update for the boosting solution:
If you have at least 1 friend who is willing to boost you have a faster way than grinding one trial over and over again.

Setup:
Map: Submarine Carrier
Outfit: Choose the same color for an extra 500XP bonus per kill and the same headgear + armor for an extra 1000XP bonus per kill.
Weapon: Since the new update, do yourself a favor and use the claws. The ghost kill is 1 or 2 seconds faster resulting in even more kills.

Boosting:
Now for the killing part. If you are really lucky you start with the "life of a killer" contract, which is the best what can happen. 1st this contract doesn't change until you die, which shouldn't happen in a boosting session. 2nd it gives 5000XP instead of 1000-3000XP as the other contracts. The worst case is a Falcon Dive contract, as it is time consuming and annoying.

Once the match start run towards the middle of the map, kunai climb the wall, collect the skull and falcon dive your partner and start completing contracts. If you don't start with "life of a killer" you may receive it after a few kills. The fastest method for a kill is a head shot as long as you have arrows, then switch to ghost kills and if it is available always do a UT kill for an extra 1000XP steel on bone bonus.

Assuming you start with "Life of a Killer" a match should proceed like this:
1. Falcon Dive
2. Head Shot
3. UT
4+5. Headshot
6. UT
7+8 Headshot
9. UT
10-11. Headshot
12. UT
13-14. Headshot
15. UT
16. Headshot
17. Ghost
18. UT
from here alternate between Ghost kills and UT if available and working^^

Fazit:
The best result was something around 650k(no typo) in 5min, but it is definitely above 250k per match/5min if you do it 1on1 with 27-34kills in the time limit and starting with a falcon dive contract. Since I don't have enough willing friends to test boosting with a 1on2 setting, but I guess you will get more XP per match.

Here is some general advice how to pull off certain contracts as fast as possible:
- Izuna Drop: Start with a XXXXX attack and then XYXXXY for the Izuna
- Steel on Bone: Either mash your way with X until you can pull it off, or if you have a UT available and it is working, you get a Steel on Bone bonus which counts for the contract.
- Shuriken Master: Throw a single Shuriken with B and finish the victim with any kill, I prefer a Ghost Kill.
- Ninpo: If this is the first contracts, you will need 3 kills and some hits. Remember that you have to keep a minimum distance for Ninpo to work.

If you have something for me to add, please comment or send me a PM

100kills in trials would be a bit too easy

Just got the full list of all five and they require the DLC from the 17th. I'm done with trying anymore. Very seriously considering selling this game at this point. One requires completing Ultimate Ninja in Story AND the two new missions for UN difficulty. Can you imagine the slowdown? Fuck that.

so all 5 dlc achievements require both dlc packs for 800 points each!

where did you find this list?

It's at a few places now. On my phone or I'd link. GameFAQs has it in the forum for 360. One is for 100 kills with claws, another for 100 with scythe, another I already described, another for beating all new trials, and the last I forget offhand. Requires both $10 packs though. I give up.
