Introduction
Magna Carta 2 is a Japanese Role-Playing Game (JRPG) with a free-action battle system similar to Infinite Undiscovery. It has some unique battle features that help it stand out though. I suppose it is technically a KRPG since it was made by a Korean company, but as genres go, it is right in line with most JRPG on the market.

The only thing you'll need before starting your playthrough if you only want the original 1000 is the Quest Guide. I will include the locations of the three recipes that can be found only in chests inside that walkthrough to simplify things. However, if you want the full 1240, you'll also need to consult the Weapons guide.

Downloadable Content
If you plan on getting the full 1240, purchase the Magnacarta 2 Bonus Pack for 400 Microsoft Points before beginning your game. If you want, you can watch the Live Dramas right away from the main menu, but I'd suggest saving them until you are familiar with all the characters. Unless of course you don't care about that.

If you don't care about playing the game "pure," this content is also fabulous for powering through quickly. The extra weapons that you are given have ginormous damage output, killing most of the enemies and bosses in the first half of the game in just a few hits.

Play the game
Well, this is actually the only step to getting the entirety of gamerscore since there is no end-game component, secret dungeons, multiple playthroughs or anything like that. If you follow the Quest Guide and Weapons Guide diligently to complete all the quests, grab the few items that are found specifically in chests and collect every weapon, you will easily have all the achievements. One of the simpler JRPG lists for sure! Be sure to do Chain Breaks whenever possible though, and follow some of the tips for the skill mastery achievements if you're going to try for those in a single playthrough.

Co-op Technique: Juto & Zephie10
Learn Co-op Technique for Juto & Zephie. 

You will learn Imperial Blade through story progression just before leaving for Darkblade Fortress. You do not have to use it for the achievement to unlock.

To perform a co-op technique, the two characters involved will need to have the correct weapons equipped (for this specific one Juto needs a 2-handed sword and Zephie needs her fan), then initiate a chain between the characters (see "500 Chain Breaks") and finally press with at least 5 Kan in reserve for both characters.

To completely "master" a skill tree, you have to purchase all skills, stat bonuses and upgrades, as well as learn all co-op techniques.

The best way to do this with little issue is to simply not use any of your SP until you have amassed about 700. At this point, save your game. Now spend all your SP and master a tree for each person. Reload your previous save, then master the other tree. Be aware that some of the co-op techniques are only learned through quests, so wait until you have all those before doing this.

To completely master both skill trees for everyone at the same time, you will need roughly 1400 SP per person. This is nearly impossible, since after level 65, the experience you gain vs. the experience required to level up will cause hours of grinding for a single level. Even with the methods listed in the next paragraph, it is extremely difficult to pull off, so do I would highly suggest the first option.
 
To speed this process up, there is an item called Pendant of Skill that adds +50% SP upon leveling up. You get one from Quest 48 and there is another in a chest just before the Wall of Despair in Belfort. What you'll want to do is be diligent in checking when people will level and equip the item on them shortly before, then switch it over to the next closest person after the previous person levels up, and so on. You can couple this with Belt of Experience to help everyone level more often. There is also a special Kamond called "Seeker" which will add +30% SP upon leveling. You can equip multiple Seeker Kamonds on a weapon and they do stack. You get one free from Quest 33 and more can be purchased in Cota Mare, but only during Celestine's "coming of age" ceremony. They disappear after that.
Weapon Enhanced5
Use Enhancements on a weapon. 
You will first learn the ability to enhance weapons after a meeting in Abazet Port. You should by now have a few Kamonds collected, so open the menu and select the Enhancements option. From here you will have a list of weapons. Some do not have a board to fit Kamonds in to, so choose an appropriate weapon, then select an open slot and finally chose a Kamond to place into the weapon.
Obtained Item Recipe5
Obtain an item recipe. 

See "Obtained All Item Recipes" for more info.

Obtained 6 Item Recipes10
Obtain 6 item recipes. 

See "Obtained All Item Recipes" for more info.

Obtained All Item Recipes30
Obtain all item recipes. 
All you have to do to unlock these achievements is collect the recipe, not actually create the item that it offers. There are a total of 12 recipes to be collected. These are gained mostly through quests and one boss, except three that are found in chests. Those are included in the Quest Guide as well. In the order you will find them:
  • Snow Crystal: Defeat the Werewolf Boss in Abazet Field.
  • Red Jewel: Complete the "A Tooth for a Tooth" quest.
  • Wizard's Rocket: Complete the "Gather Cursed Grass" quest.
  • Iron Heart: Complete the "Hunt the Fleeing Soldiers" quest.
  • Ring of Conquest: Complete the "Dunan Field's Seeds of Suffering" quest.
  • Proof of Soldier: Complete the "Find the Scout, Jeroha" quest.
  • Patience & Will: Complete the "Emergency Rescue" quest.
  • Golden Frog: Inside a chest to the north of all the tombstones in the Undersea Tunnel while looking for the Cota Mare war documents.
  • Reward for Effort: In another chest grouped with Golden Frog.
  • Ultimate Shot: Complete the "Ultimate Wonder Potion" quest.
  • Mark of the Hero: Complete the "Kill the Inferno" quest.
  • Perfect Ring: In the Ruhalt Basin, head north over a brigde near the save pillar that can be found in a clearing east of Belfort and north of the Bluemoon settlement.

500 Chain Breaks50
Complete 500 chain breaks. (6) 
This video from one of the game's producers explains this system very well. For a chain break to occur, you have to successfully perform the following steps in battle:
  1. Overdrive: Have a character use more Stamina than the total amount of Stamina they actually have.
  2. Chain State: Use the d-pad to switch leader away from the person in Overdrive status.
  3. Chain Drive: Again, use more Stamina than you have available with this second person before the original person recovers.
If either leader in the above steps is knocked down, the chain will end and you will have to begin again. Likewise, you can not use items or switch away from Combat mode with either character.

The best combination I found for this is Argo and Juto. Both of them store their Kan internally so it is always available, whereas others need the Kan to be in the air around them which can take some time to build. Don't have either person on focused attack strategy, that way each one can build toward overdrive on different enemies, then unleash their overdrives back to back without getting in each others way or killing the mob too quickly.

The best enemy to grind for these on are either the Phongs or Mighty Lappers outside Abazet. Since they take almost no damage, you can get a whole bunch of Chain Breaks on each enemy before they die. Don't have Zephie in your party when fighting Phongs and don't use Argo's Armor Break against the Lappers though, or they become vulnerable and die quickly.

These three achievements are simply a matter of purchasing the DLC mentioned in the Road Map and launching the scenes from the Extras option on the main menu of the game.

Weapon Collector: Rue30

Again, these all require that you have purchased the DLC pack mentioned in the Road Map. However, these are a bit more difficult in that you have to collect every weapon in the game. There ARE missable weapons, namely because of story progression when shops upgrade their stock, getting rid of weaker weapons. This occurs for both Abazet and Cota Mare. Be sure to purchase every weapon available at a shop ASAP when you come to it, and check upon every new arrival in a city.

If you need to raise money for a group of purchases at a shop, grind away on enemies and complete quests. There is also accessories with "Sacrifice" in the name that will increase SID gain, as well as Kamonds called Golden Clover.

All the weapon locations can be found in chronological order in this thread.

To unlock the achievements, you have to have all the weapons in your inventory, so DO NOT SELL ANY WEAPON, EVER! The only exception to this is the "Wooden Sword" which is Juto's starting weapon. This is removed from your inventory once he grows a pair and starts using real blades. Losing this item does not affect the achievement in any way. From then on though, you need to keep everything.
