Introduction
Phantasy Star Universe is an RPG with a free-action battle system. It is one of the shortest and least involved RPGs available on the system. The original 1000 points can all be obtained through the single player storyline, while the additional 250 require the monthly paid service that acts as an MMORPG.

Step 1: Original 1000
To obtain the full 1000 in this game, you need only play the main storyline. No extra exploring, leveling, questing or item acquiring necessary like more recent RPGs. Once you finish the game, you will have your 1000 gamerscore.

Ambition of the Illuminus DLC

If you aim for 100% completion of this game, you will need to subscribe to the online service (monthly fees apply) and go on various quests with multiple allies to defeat difficult bosses. Since very few people in our community have done this, there is little help to be found, but check the forums or search on places like Gamespot for help if you really want to do this. I do not know how long it would take to get these achievements, but I know MMORPG games can be quite tedious and difficult if you can't find good players to help you.

There are 13 achievements with a total of 1250 points

  • Defeat the Chapter 3 boss.

    This boss is fairly easy. Make sure you have enough of each healing potions (20 if you can, that’s the max you can hold) and stay underneath him or as close to him as you can that way he wont be able to hit you with his most powerful attacks. When he goes up into the air move around that way you have a less chance of getting hit. If anyone dies during the battle don’t worry because after a while they will come back to life and join the fight again. After a while the battle will end awarding you the achievement.

  • Defeat the Chapter 5 boss.

    Before you fight this boss you'll have to fight three Tengohg. It'll be only you and Hyuga Ryght for a part of the battle then Maya Shidow will join in to help. Use the same tactic as for the first. Stay as close to him as you can and attack him. When he goes up into the air move around that way you have a less chance of getting hit. After a while the battle will end awarding you the achievement.

  • Defeat the Chapter 7 boss.

    For this battle make sure you have a powerful second attack equipped to your weapon as it will come in handy because it does the most damage. Heal when needed and always attack when you can and he will eventually fall.

  • Defeat the Chapter 8 boss.

    For this boss battle make sure you have a lot of photon chargers so you can recharge your weapon’s PP when it runs low. Use your weapons Y attack and this battle will go pretty quick.

  • Defeat the Chapter 9 boss.

    For this boss do the same things that I have said earlier but make sure you dodge his attacks when you can. Attack when possible and he will fall in no time.

  • Defeat the Chapter 11 boss.

    This boss is basically the same as the second boss of the game. Use the same tactics and this boss will fall in no time.

  • Defeat the Chapter 12 boss.

    For this boss, when you can get up close to him do so. When you see that your doing 0 damage back away as far as you can he will send his arm flying down to do damage to you. When he does he will have his arm stay there for a little while. This is your clue to attack him arm and do as much damage as you can. Most of his attacks can be avoided so avoid them when possible. After a while he will go down awarding you the achievement and bringing you to his second form.

  • Defeat the last boss.

    This form is actually easy to beat. He has a tail that he will slam down to do damage to you. When he does attack his tail, you won't do much damage but some damage is better then none. After a while he will start flying in circles around you. When he starts this, stay in the middle of the platform away from his tail so you don't get hurt and so your team won't take any damage either. After a while he will fly upside down on the edge of the platform your on, when he does this attack him as much as you can and he should go down shortly after you start attacking him.
