Tales of Vesperia Achievements

Low Level Challenger

You defeated Barbos at Lv. 15 or under! Amazing! You sure know how to take this guy down.   

This will have to be done on your second (or third, etc.) play through the game. After you finish the game, start an EX New Game and buy the perk "1/2 experience" from the Grade shop, along with anything else that will help such as the HP/TP increases, items, artes and skills. This way you can be sure that you do not exceed level 15 before getting to Barbaros but will still be well prepared. You also can not level past 15 with the experience earned from beating Barbaros, so make sure you're level 14 when you get to him to be safe. Switch the battle difficulty to Easy from the data tab in the menu to help since you will be a lower level than the bosses. Try to avoid most normal battles as well. If you are toward the top of Ghasfarost and are not level 14 yet, go ahead and level for a bit to get there so you can have all the health and attack power possible.

Note: There may be a miswording of the achievement and you may have to actually be below 15 to get it, not at 15. Aim to be level 14 after the experience earned from the boss just to be safe.

Just be sure you do this your second (or third) playthrough with the 1/2 Exp on and avoid normal fights. Also if you level past 15 as the fight ends it sadly will not count. :(

Whew, I got it yesterday. My party was at Level 10 (Karol) and mostly 12 (Yuri, Repede, ...). Could be that Raven was already 13 after the fight. But when I got him, he started with one level above my main party so he should always be a bit higher even if you do not play with him (I did not up to Barbos because I didn't want to screw up - tried to put the lowest level characters in my active party)

With all the necessary Power-Up, Defend, Combo and Artes Skills enabled (Buy 1P per Skill in the Grade Shop), the obligatory fights were a breeze - even against Gattuso I had no problems. And this beast raped me on my first playthrough (this is my 3rd one actually). I started out with difficulty put to Hard from the beginning but then I read that this boosts the XP you gain after a fight. So
