It takes place in the same world as Atelier Ayesha and Atelier Escha & Logy and features many recurring characters. You will join alchemists Shallistera (Stera) and Shallotte (Lotte), both nicknamed Shallie, as they investigate the cause of water sources in the nearby area drying up. You have the option to play the game as either heroine and each has a slightly different story in the starting segment of the game. Trophy wise, Atelier Shallie is the easiest of the Atelier games on the PS3 due to the time management system from previous installments being removed. Instead the game introduces the Life Task system, tasks that must be completed in order to progress the story, and the Motivation system, a tracker that penalizes the player with reduced movement speed and gathering rates if they take too long to progress. Character events are easier than ever as friendship level is no longer a requirement and no trophy-related event is restricted to a set timeframe but rather can be completed freely anytime up until the final boss. While the number of missable trophies in this list might seem alarmingly large, they are due to a point of no return that occurs after defeating the final boss. So long as you keep a save prior to this and save your clear game data on a new file there are only two true missable trophies. See the walkthrough for more details of these trophies and when to make key saves. This game will require two playthroughs to platinum, one for each character, however NG+ will allow you to carry over your Cole and equipment so the second playthrough will be much faster and substantially easier. Warning: It is extremely important that you have the most recent patch for Atelier Shallie. This patch addresses a major glitch which causes the Growth System, only accessible after reaching level 40 combat, to freeze the game anytime it is accessed. The only way to fix it is to power off your PS3 thus losing all progress made since your last save. While the Growth System itself is not tied to any trophies failure to download the patch will lock you out of character growth. The extra stats, buffs and skill enhancements provided by the Growth System make obtaining the platinum much easier. http://i.imgur.com/jmSNn8L.png Step 1: Reach the Seat of Eternity in Chapter 10 as Stera. The character you choose for this step is interchangeable so long as you make sure you to use the opposite character for your NG+ run. Stera's unique synthesis skill Double Skill is more useful for making ultimate equips (which I've advised you do in this playthrough) so for the sake of the guide I will be assuming you've chosen Stera. There are no trophies relating to game difficulty so feel free to select Story Watcher for the easiest time. During this step you are free to explore the game and enjoy it at your own leisure. The only missable trophy you need to actively watch out for is Unspeakable Thoughts. Whilst completing Raoul's character events you must answer "Probably not" or you will forfeit the chance to obtain the trophy on this run. To ensure a smooth run there are a few things you will want to do during every Chapter. In each map area you travel through try to defeat every monster group and gather from all resource points. Likewise, you should aim to explore any new unlocked map areas as they show up. Make an effort to visit all shops to purchase any reference books or common ingredients you are low on and then synthesize one of every item. During free time try to view all character events available. Doing all of this will ensure that you are never under-levelled, always have a healthy stock of ingredients to synthesize with and are up to date with all of the trophy character events. Once you reach Chapter 10 you will be required to access the Seat of Eternity. Travel to Geofront – Closed Route where you will be forced to battle the King of Beasts. Winning this fight is required to unlock the Ruler of the Depths trophy however it is highly recommended to leave this for a NG+ run. Lose the battle and continue until you reach Seat of Eternity. At this point you want to ensure you have finished all character event trophies and then move on to the next step. During this step you will earn the following trophies: Chapter 1 Clear Chapter 2 Clear Chapter 3 Clear Chapter 4 Clear Chapter 5 Clear Chapter 6 Clear Chapter 7 Clear Chapter 8 Clear Chapter 9 Clear Confection Fair Place of Origin Reconciliation Shallistera's Path Small Master The Solitary Alchemist Time Between Sisters Unspeakable Thoughts Angry Lord of Water The Greatest Dragon Tyrant of the Sand Sea Protector of Treasure Water Festival! Step 2: Grind levels, preparation for NG+ and defeat the final boss. To avoid missing any trophies in this step it is imperative that you make a save on a separate file at these three points: before defeating the final boss, after defeating the final boss but before returning to Stellard and your clear save data. Essentially these saves are your back up for missable trophies. Never overwrite them. This step is basically here to prepare you for your NG+ run. While it might not seem like there is much to do this will be quite a time consuming step. You're going to want to grind out your alchemy and combat levels to 99 and in the process gather the properties required to make your ultimate gear. You will also need to ensure you've met the requirements for you character's hidden ending. See the respective trophy explanations for all the details needed to complete this. Before defeating the final boss ensure that all your best combat equipment and search equipment are equipped. You can also sell off any remaining items in your container to maximize the Cole you will transfer over to your NG+. Keeping in mind the required saves mentioned earlier, go forth and defeat the final boss then start the ending sequence by returning to Stellard. To quickly unlock the second ending trophy for your character simply reload your second required save and pick the other option. During this step you will earn the following trophies: Bridge with Central Celebrity Meeting Full Fledged Alchemist! Leave the Fighting to Me Shallistera's Rest The Eternal Controller The Next Chief Step 3: Complete your NG+ playthrough as Lotte. To avoid missing any trophies in this step it is imperative that you make a save on a separate file at these three points: before defeating the King of Beasts at Geofront – Closed Route, before defeating the final boss and after defeating the final boss but before returning to Stellard. Essentially these saves are your back up for missable trophies. Never overwrite them. With ultimate gear you should breeze through this playthrough. While you can avoid most character events some will need to be repeated to fulfill ending requirements. See the relevant trophy explanations for details. During Chapter 10 ensure that you defeat the King of Beasts to unlock Ruler of the Depths then you are free to defeat the final boss to finish up the game. Once again reload the required save you made before returning to Stellard to quickly unlock your last endings trophies. During this step you will earn the following trophies: 2nd Play Start Admirable Alchemist!? Fallen Mother Shalotte's Path A New Adventure Begins Shalotte's Rest Ruler of the Depths Two Shallies All Trophies Obtained That's it, you're done! Congratulations on your platinum.
