Tii Posted November 14, 2012 Share Posted November 14, 2012 (edited) Overview: Estimated Difficulty: 3/10 (Platinum Difficulty Thread) Estimated Time to Platinum: Approximately 80-140 Hours. (Depends on how much dialogue you skip and how much you tend to sidetrack) Minimum Number of Playthroughs Required: 2. Offline Trophies: 50 (40 , 6 , 3 , 1 ). Online Trophies: 0. Difficulty Related Trophies: None but please refer to Hardcore Risette Fan . Glitched Trophies: None. Missable Trophies: Technically nearly all the trophies except the story-related one are missable but only 5 should be of any concern i.e. Welcome Back , Hardcore Risette Fan , Fill Your Hand , Compulsive Reader and Legend of Inaba . ROAD MAP IMPORTANT NOTES This Road Map & Trophy Guide is originally based on the Japanese Version of Persona 4: Golden. As such, when the English Version is released, there will be inevitable changes to some of the places/titles but nothing too major. All of the screenshots present were taken by me whilst playing the JP version. Persona 4: Golden is a remake of the PS2 Classic "Persona 4", it follows the same storyline but has quite a few changes. ChibiDeidarar of GameFAQs.com has listed the changes here: Game Changes For those Who Didn't Know - Persona 4 Golden Message Board for PlayStation Vita - GameFAQs The two main changes to note are that now you can select which skills Personas inherit during fusion which means no more clicking back and forth during Persona fusions in order to get the desired and also there are two new difficulty levels added to the three available: Safety - Exp and Cash are quadrupled, shadows are weaker, you can get revived in battle as many times as you want. Easy - Same as above except the Cash rate is normal and you cannot be revived during battle. Normal - The way the game is meant to be played, if you die - you can choose to respawn at the start of the floor you died in and the exp rate is set to normal. Hard - Same as risky but you can choose to respawn in the dungeon. Risky - Enemies are extra-hard, you gain less Exp and Cash, dying means reloading your save. Here are some links to external websites with useful information: English Websites: Fusion Chart Max S-Link Guide Japanese Websites (you might want to use a website, such as Google Translate, for translations if needed): Rise Navi's List Evening Conversation List Fusion Forecast List Skill Card List Miracle Quiz A very special thanks to Persona4.wikidot.com, without their website this guide would not be as complete! Step #1 (40-70 Hours) - Complete the Main Story for the first time: Technically all the trophies except Hardcore Risette Fan can be earned even on SAFETY Difficulty but I would suggest playing on at least Easy or Normal. This is because the amount of experience and cash you gain depends on what difficulty you're on and getting really high-levelled too quickly will stop you from getting the Risette trophy. You don't need to worry about particular trophies at this time except for the choices made at a certain date to get on the 'True End' path, see The Truth In Your Hands. You should just enjoy the story, level up Social Links as you see fit and just enjoy the game. You will unlock the following story-related trophies: The Other Self (Obtain the Persona Izanagi) A Prince Appears (Rescue Yukiko) A True Man’s Stand (Rescue Kanji) The Lounge Is Closed (Rescue Rise) Game Over (Catch Mitsuo) Boarder-Up Lab (Rescue Naoto) The Return of the Angels (Rescue Nanako) Breaking Through the Fog (Catch Adachi) Welcome Back (Rescue Marie) *Missable, refer to the guide The Truth In Your Hands (Defeat Izanami) *Missable, refer to the guide* In addition to the above, you should also earn the following en-route to the end of the main story: Persona Shopper (Buy a Persona from the Compendium) A Favor for Marie (Register a Skill Card) Tactical Fighter (Exploit Enemy Weakness 100 times) Grasping at Greed (Defeat a Golden Hand) A True Bond (Max out a Social Link) A Special Lady (Enter a special relationship with someone) Fashion Plate (Fight a battle in a costume) Advantage Mine (Enter a battle with Player Advantage) Head of the Class (Rank #1 in your class on an exam) If you wish to get most of the 'easy' missable trophies out of the way during your first playthrough then have a look at the individual descriptions for these trophies: Fusion Expert (Perform 50 Persona fusions) The Nose Doesn’t Always Know (Experience a fusion accident) Displaying Adaptability (Switch Personas 5 times in 1 battle) It’s Working Today (Buy an item from the Capsule Machine) Lucky Me! (Win a prize from the vending machine) Granter of Your Desires (Buy 5 things from Tanaka’s Amazing Commodities) Seize the Moment (Buy a special croquette from Sozai Daigaku) Cooking With Gas (Make 5 perfect boxed lunches) An Acquired Taste (Drink the coffee at Chagall Café) Movie Buff (Go to 3 movies at 30 Frame) Bug Hunter (Swing the net with perfect timing) Special Fusion Expert (Use 4 or more Personas in a special fusion) Big Bro is Worried (Visit Nanako in the hospital 3 times) During this step try not to run from fights and play on Easy/Normal difficulty in order to get the Hardcore Risette Fan out of the way. Don't forget to analyse the enemies' stats often. Also don't forget to register skill cards, try to achieve the 'True Ending' and have a blast playing the best, IMO, Vita JRPG ever released. Step #2 (30-40 Hours) – Complete the Main Story a Second Time: Now that you have completed the main story it would be a good time to earn A New Quiz King. This can be done via the main menus by selecting 'TV LISTINGS', you just need to win the quiz event. After that you can start a new playthrough on any difficulty. The difficulty does not matter because you are now free to customise it in any way you prefer, such as Monster difficulty, XP/Cash Earned and action taken if you happen to die during a dungeon etc. If you're not interested in monster fighting anymore and have obtained the Hardcore Risette Fan trophy you might as well just put the difficulty on SAFETY and enjoy the story for another round without having to worry about the dungeon monsters/bosses. These are the things you keep from your previous playthrough(s): Daidara's stock Costumes Money Compendium Registered Skill Cards No. of Persona slots Max Social Link items (Required to fuse the Persona unlocked at Level 10 S-link) Social Stats Things you do not keep: Items/equipment (except S-Link items) Levels Personas in your battle list Book progress Unlocked places (Okina City & Sea) Fishing Rod & Bug Net Complete this step whilst maxing all of the Social Links, getting the 100% Compendium completion as well as aiming to get to at least level 91 (in dungeons) in order to create the ultimate Persona i.e. Izanagi-no-Okami. In this step aim to unlock: Card Collector (Register 100 Skill Cards) Going Nova (Deal over 999 damage in 1 attack) Fill Your Hand (Get 50 Sweep Bonuses) Mr. Perfect (Max out all social qualities) Food Fighter (Finish Aiya's special dish) Moderate Bookkeeper (Register over 50% of the Compendium) Thorough Bookkeeper (Complete the Persona Compendium) Fishing Master (Catch the Sea Guardian (Required for Hermit Social-Link as well)) Bond Maniac (Max out 10 Social Links) Compulsive Reader (Read all books) *Has to be done in a single playthrough* Legend of Inaba (Max out all Social links) *Has to be done in a single playthrough* A New Quiz King (Win the Miracle Quiz Finals) One Who Has Proven Their Power (Defeat Margaret) The Reaper Becomes the Reaped (Defeat The Reaper) The Power of Truth (Create Izanagi-no-Okami) Step #3 - Clean Up (If Necessary): At this point you should have all the trophies and earned your but in case you have missed something, start a new playthrough at any difficulty and refer to specific trophy descriptions. Good luck and stay Golden! Edited July 12, 2014 by Tii Editorial Sweep. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
