NIER Achievements

Man of Means

Accumulate 1,000,000 pieces of gold.   
You must have 1 million gold in your inventory all at once, anything you've spent in the past does NOT count. Check to see how much money you will have after selling all your items, then grind the rest out. You can make money by harvesting (recommended), catching fish (royal fish for 4K each), completing quests, or doing junk heap runs. Since Harvesting is recommended, I will explain it here:
  • Buy 99 rice/wheat seeds and 99 bounty fertilizers from Seaport
  • Fertilize, then plant rice/wheat in all 15 harvesting spots (located next to your house in the Village)
  • Save game
  • Exit the game to the dashboard, advance your system clock by one day (if clock is at 4/25 then go to 4/26)
  • Load game
  • Harvest all 15 spots, sell your items at the Village shop, then repeat.
Since signing into Xbox Live updates your current time, make sure you unplug your Ethernet cable or wireless adapter so you do not sign in.

Rice is worth the most money but you will notice that the game only allows you to carry 99 of one item at once, and you can optimize your time/money output by planting 10 spots with rice and 5 spots with wheat, therefore only having to run to the item shop to sell twice per date change.

An easy way to achieve this is to buy wheat seedlings and plant all 15 in your field along with Bount Fertilizer. Either wait 4 hours or advance your games clock and water them. Then wait or advance the clock 1 day, harvest them. You should get anywhere from 90-160. Watering increases the amount you get slightly.
