Anyone know how to get the challenge that is up right now?

Cant remember the name or the description but it was someone about looting the city. Is that an epilog? I see in Maka's collectible guide he has a spot for the city at the end. Is it just for getting all collectible in that chapter?

The City is a hub area that you visit many times throughout the game. Maka's guide just recommends looting the city last. You can loot it as it opens up throughout the story if you wish.

The Challenge is Called The Early Thief.

The description says Be persistent and loot the city.

I'm currently on 1%, not sure what you have to do exactly to get the challenge (steal obviously, but how much and if it has to be a specific location, I have no idea), or what the reward for doing so is.

Anyone know what the reward is?

According to TA the challenge is for stealing 100,000 gold. Not sure if that's cumulative across multiple playthroughs or not. I'm assuming it has to be.

Yeah. I've restarted several times and the progress bar keeps going up.

I found in the xbox one store, between images and challenges on thief page it lists a leaderboard showing total gold stolen among your friends. I'm just over 10,000 gold so far, and the challenge is showing 10% so it definitely seems to be a 100,000 total.

Just popped for me as well. If you're not working on other achievements or beefing up your main story save, I recommend Challenge Mode. I've been collecting all the loot in "House of Blossoms-Chain & Gain", each time my bar goes up 2%. So about 2000 gold per play.

I read somewhere online to save near the end of the game before you get 30k gold. Get your 30k gold, then reload that save and get your 30k gold again. Rinse and repeat. I just got the game so I am not sure. Just trying to help make it easier and faster if possible.

I'm not there yet, but the post from the link says, "simply make a manual save right before you pick up the last collectible, pick it up, then reload the save and repeat the process a couple more times"

Someone on that site commented saying, "Best way to do this achievement is to use the merchant. Save your game in front of the merchant. Buy and sell Blast arrows until you run out of gold. Load your last save. rinse and repeat with all your gold"

I had to back to the a merchant to check if the trick works and it does. Save your game while in front of the merchant, buy and sell until you run out of coins, load last save, rinse and repeat. The challenge percentage goes up only about 1-2% per try with about 2000 coins, but it works.

This is how I got it, except I did it with poppies. Probably would have been faster doing the blast arrows... oh well.

Brilliant!! Thank you, I was hoping for a hint like this to get the challenge. Trying to go for it legitimately but thinking I may run out of time.

Edit: Yay got it!!!!!!!!!!!!!
