This is proof that you've earned the means to stand up against those whom you must. But beware... Your enemies are more powerful than you can imagine. There's no way to know whether you can triumph without confronting them directly.
Either on (at least) your 2nd playthrough or in Hard (or greater) difficulty, conquer the fierce battle at Falkewin Hillside without using any items! It's a steep challenge, but you've got what it takes!
Either on (at least) your 2nd playthrough or in Moderate (or greater) difficulty, win the final battle without retrying! If you're familiar with the game, why not start your first playthrough in Moderate right away? You'll earn more Grade than in Normal!
Either on (at least) your 3rd playthrough or in Hard (or greater) difficulty, win the final battle without retrying! If you can't feel alive without the icy glare of death at your back, we recommend you start the game in Hard right away! Playing in Hard or higher increases your likelihood of obtaining double-skill equipment!
Either on (at least) your 5th playthrough or in Chaos difficulty, win the final battle without retrying! Play long enough in Intense to unlock this ghastly difficulty setting. It's the only difficulty that offers a chance of obtaining triple-skill equipment!
Shop Level will increase when you buy, sell, or fuse equipment at shops. This is proof that you've fist-bumped the invisible hand of capitalism enough to achieve maximum Shop Level. Secret menus unleashed!
This is proof that you've stayed at inns for a total of 10 nights. Resting at inns can give you extra skill effects in battle thanks to mysterious ingredients in the meals you're served. You can also engage in chitchat with your companions and restore your initial SC to 100. Such hospitality!
This is proof that at least one Lord of the Land has reached Blessing Level 20. Even when they pass to the stars, they find it hard to abandon those over whom they watch. It seems some remnant of their blessing remains even after you finish the game.
This is proof that you've equipped items that activate a Group Union bonus skill. Each basic skill group has a skill corresponding to each of the five elements. It doesn't matter where on your equipment you have the skills equipped; just equip all five skills in a group to form a Group Union!
This is proof that you've equipped items that activate an Elemental Union bonus skill. Basic skills all correspond to one of five different elements. Equip skills of the same element that line up directly adjacent to each other, and you'll form an Elemental Union based on how many skills are in the line. Check it out on the skill sheet!
This is proof that you've equipped items that activate a Stack bonus skill. You can get Stack bonuses by equipping more than one copy of the same skill at once. The more copies of that skill you equip, the cooler your Stack bonus will be!
This is proof that you've reached the maximum Blast Gauge of 9. You can increase your BG using the Stack 3 bonus skill "Blasst". Coordinate your equipment just right, and you can blast off to new heights.
This is proof that you've sanctified at least one piece of equipment. A super deal that doubles the effect of the skill in the first slot! Of course, if you're particularly devout, you can also offer this item to the Lord of the Land and secure a more blessed future for our children.
This is proof that you've acquired equipment with a doubled skill from an enemy drop. Very difficult unless you're playing in Hard difficulty or higher! There's a rumor that offering sanctified equipment to a Lord of the Land may increase the chances...
This is proof that you've reacquired the equipment you carried over from your last playthrough in Lakehaven Heights. Future You is cheering you on, waiting to meet you at the end of the game once more.
This is proof that you've fought many battles while controlling many characters. You can take it slow by changing characters in the Top Menu, but if you want to kick it into high gear, there are battle actions that let you switch in battle on the fly!
Sometimes, after you've found a discovery point or when you're at a save point, you have the opportunity to push SELECT to initiate a conversation between your companions. This is proof that you've experienced many Things and had a lot of Opinions about them.
This is proof that you've collected a great many items, most of which are equipment. The core concept of equipment is the combination of stat boosts and embedded skills. Items you initially dismissed might in fact hold the key to defeating the most formidable foes.
This is proof that you've battled a wide swath of enemies. By the way, the more of the same enemy you defeat, the more likely that enemy becomes to drop equipment with skills attached. Time for some population control!
This is proof that you've become quite familiar with the Library. How to obtain this is kind of a secret, but if you take the time to do a bit of reading now and then, you should be pleasantly surprised.
This is proof that you've returned alive from challenging all eight Malevolent Crucibles. Since each one only allows certain characters to enter, you'll need mastery of techniques and knowledge for each one of them.
