Gold Trophy PixelJunk Eden: Encore ~ Trophy Guide and Road Map


If you have found this or any other threads that I maintain useful and are compelled to join this forum as a consequence, please give me a referral upon signing up by clicking here.

Overview
+ Estimated trophy difficulty: No difficulty poll. (I would estimate around 7.5/10)
+ Offline: 12 (1 + 11)
+ Online: 0
+ Approximate time: 7-13 hours
+ Minimum number of play-through's needed: 5 (collect all Spectra on the fifth successful run of a garden)
+ Missable trophies: All except for All Spectra Found
+ Does difficulty effect trophies: No difficulty settings.
+ Glitched: None
+ Cheats: None

Intro
Welcome back to the Garden of Eden! There are another five gardens in this DLC with some new wacky tricks for you to enjoy. This game is fun for some of us, but difficult and frustrating at times for all. As usual, spin into enemies and collect the resulting pollen to fill the seeds. Jump into a full seed to sprout it, and use the newly grown branches to scale up and collect the spectra.

According to YGC leader-boards at the time of writing, only 145 of the 10,542 syncing their trophies have collected all seeds in garden 15, so be prepared for a challenge...

Step 1: Collect All Spectra and Seeds
Play thru each garden, one at a time. First play Garden 11, and obtain the first spectra. Repeat and collect the second spectra, etc. After your fourth Spectra for that garden, you can access all the seeds and spectra of that garden. As you finish collecting all the seeds for that stage, you will earn the trophy for collecting all seeds on that stage. Do this on all five gardens for all five seed trophies: Encore: All Seeds 11-15.

When you finish collecting all 25 DLC Spectra, you will unlock Encore: All Spectra Found (Garden 11 - 15).

Step 2: One Jump
There are six trophies which are awarded for accomplishing specific requirements while within a jump. Keep in mind that spinning is very useful for these, as it allows you to continue that fall through minor branches and enemies, so you can finish collecting what that task requires.

Refer to Double Spectra, 3 on 1, Seed Open Combo Ten, Bank Shot, Peak Position and Thirty Crystals in the trophy guide.

Encore: All Spectra Found (Garden 11 - 15)
Get all the Spectra in garden 11 - 15

There are five Encore gardens, each with five spectra, for 25 Encore Spectra in total. The first time doing a garden, it will end right after you claim the first spectra. The second run, it will end after two spectra. And so on. You will have to complete each stage five times, with all five spectra only possible to collect on the fifth run. After you have collected the fourth spectra, you will need to explore most of the garden anyhow and is the perfect time to open all the seeds of that garden and then collect the fifth spectra.

Follow the videos for Encore: All Seeds 11-15 for a proper walk through.


Encore: All Seeds 11
Open all seeds in garden 11, without using continues

You will need to explore the entire stage, filling and then opening every last seed. This is harder than just grabbing the spectra, and I suggest getting this on the fifth run of garden 11, see All Spectra Found for details.

In a Single Jump

Encore: Double Spectra
Get two Spectra in a single jump. Available stages: Garden 11 - 15

You can only collect one Spectra on your first run, so obviously do this on run two or later. This is best done on Garden 11, where you can easily collect a high up spectra and bounce to the left just past the wall, then fall straight down, spinning thru the branches to hit the second one. Keep in mind to spin and bounce on the rocks, if you land/grip anything before the second spectra, it will not be within one jump.

Thanks to DevilsDemon06 for this video:


Encore: 3 on 1
Kill three different types of enemy in a single jump. Available stages: Garden 11 - 15

You need to kill any three distinct enemies in a single jump. This includes any you kill while swinging before you jump. Garden 11 is the simplest choice.

Thanks to XxDarkDiazxX for this video. While it wasn't uploaded for 3 on 1 per se, he does randomly get the trophy while doing the stage. Just watch from 4:20 to 4:35 to see it in action.


Encore: Seed Open Combo Ten
Open ten seeds in a single jump, without gripping a plant. Available stages: Garden 11 - 15

You want to collect tons of pollen to fill up a lot of seeds, and then open all the seeds in a row. You can spin in order to fall thru branches and land on a lower seed. This is best done on Garden 11 where even 15 in a row would be relatively simple.

Thanks to patrick000ps3 for this video, he actually missed some and still does an 11 Combo.


Encore: Bank Shot
Get a Spectra after bouncing off a rock (or rocks) more than once. No gripping other Grimps after bouncing. Available stages: Garden 11 - 15

This is best done on Garden 12, where there is a Spectra in middle of a rock formation. Jump to the top of the grip, but instead of gripping it, spin so you bounce back down, and continue spinning so you bounce of the rock floor into the spectra. You need to bounce more than once in total to get the trophy.

Thanks to patrick000ps3 for this video:


Encore: Peak Position
Reach the highest position in the tallest garden of Encore. Available stages: Garden 11 - 15

This is only possible on Garden 14, the tallest garden of Encore. First you need to solve the puzzle to get to the center of a rock with a teleporter. Then you need to use teleporters and gravity bubbles to scale up, up and away!

Thanks to DevilsDemon06 for this video:


Encore: Thirty Crystals
Get thirty crystals in a single jump. Available stages: Garden 11 - 15

Crystals are at fixed locations of the garden. While you can make several crystals appear for a short time by doing a large combo kill, there won't be nearly enough at once for this trophy. This is best done on Garden 11, where there are more than thirty crystals in a row if you fall from the right spot.

Thanks to patrick000ps3 for this video:


Closing Notes
Special thanks to XxDarkDiazxX for the great videos of all the Seeds and Spectra, as well as 3-on-1! Thanks to patrick000ps3 for the 10x-Combo, Thirty Crystal, and Bank Shot videos. Thanks to DevilsDemon06 for the Double Spectra and Peak Position videos.

I lost my Eden save file due to YLOD. Do I have to complete Eden main game again to play Encore's stages? Or I can jump straight to Garden 11.

If I recall correctly, you need to have collected most of the spectra from the core game to get high enough in the main garden to reach stage 11. I'd check, but it seems to be YLOD season, I just got hit too.
