Rainbow Skies is the sequel to Rainbow Moon. The strategy RPG follows the adventure of Damion and Layne, who venture out from the town of Boresville in the sky, and meet up with a novice wizard, Ashly. Ashly mistakenly casts a spell and binds the 3 together. They go forth in search of a potential cure for their affliction, encountering adventure along the way.

 

Trophy-wise Rainbow Skies is a very forgiving game. The highest optional trophy only requires you to achieve 75% item collection, while most only require you to finish the first tier or two of the total requirements. However the game itself is very time consuming, so be warned that although the difficulty is very minimal, the time investment will make this long.

Step one: Play the game. Explore, Enjoy

 

None of the trophies in the game are missable although one is available at the start and if missed will not be able to be finished for a LONG time, and any not done can be finished in the post-game. You will likely achieve nearly all of them throughout the course of a normal playthrough without focusing too much on the trophies. This will probably be one of the longer portions of the game. Remember to up your battle level to 5* as you proceed.

 

Also, ensure you complete (B) Wannabe-hero before you finish the first dungeon, as you will not be back for quite a long time. However even if you miss it, just quickly make a new save file since it really is at the very start of the game and won’t take long to redo.

 

NOTE – You can check your progress on any trophy at any time in the “Book” Menu in the “Awards” subsection. Each trophy is listed when it will pop in the individual tracking tabs, look for the Bronze, Silver, Gold for each trophy to see where you are in relation to it.

K4JlSfi.png

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/a65.jpg Explorer (B)

Completely explore 40 areas. (100%)

 

While in the world map/dungeon, a tracker will appear on the top left portion of the screen, this will display your overall completion of the current zone. Simply do this 40 times and unlock the trophy.

 

If you explore thoroughly, this should unlock around 50% main story completion. Otherwise backtrack to some smaller and earlier dungeons in the game and steam roll through them.

 

Will likely unlock before you finish the game.

 

To check your progress in a zone, enter into the world map by hitting SQUARE. Move the cursor to any zone you wish to check and the map will display your % completion of the zone.

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/b69.jpg Enlightened (B)

Play at least 200 hours (game world time, not Earth time!) with an active light spell. It doesn't matter if the light is activated using items or magic.

 

When exploring at night, if you don’t have a light activated, you will not be able to find hidden treasures, this also applies ALL THE TIME to dungeons. Early in the game this can be somewhat of a nuisance, though the game is good about giving out torches frequently. Later in the game when Damion learns the “Magic Torch” ability it becomes simple.

 

Game time is somewhere around 15 minutes per 18 hours. Use torches and spell while exploring and this will unlock naturally.

 

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/e73.jpg Researcher (B)

Discover and explore at least 20 optional areas or dungeons.

 

Similar to Explorer

 

There are a LOT of optional dungeons and areas in Rainbow Skies. Simply explore 20 of them and this will unlock.

 

Will likely unlock around 40-50% main story completion if you explore around.

 

 

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/34c.jpg The Dole (B)

Spend at least 500 Rainbow Coins at the Healer.

 

In most towns and dungeons, a healer is provided. This NPC is denoted by a large HEART over their head.

 

You can use them to revive characters, refill MP/HP and cure status ailments. Spend 500 rainbow coins and you will unlock this.

 

If SOMEHOW you haven’t managed to get this by the end of the game, equip and unequip armor/hp boosting items and heal the resulting “Damage”

 

Will likely unlock at 20-30% of the main story pending on how often you visit to heal.

 

aZWTRhw.png

 

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/eec.jpg Farmer (B)

Find and collect at least 150 items that can be picked or collected in the world.

 

During the game, various NPCs will ask for items that are “collected.”

 

Collect 150 of them to unlock.

 

On the world map, you can find these glowing objects such as [ Roots, Stones, etc ] They will be harvestable and will respawn after a few game days.

 

The simplest way to get this quickly is to head to the Toadstool Grove, near the Wooden Abyss at the start of the game when you unlock it. The enemies are low level and easy to clear out. Following a specific pathway will yield you 2-3 mushrooms per loop. Some will respawn EVERY LOOP. Repeat this until you have 150.

 

Follow the blue pathway, Red dots indicate where the mushrooms spawn.

 

phmi61e.png

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/d0a.jpg Zeal (S)

Complete 50 or more optional side quests. Repeatable quests only count once!

 

In nearly every town in the game, and in various camps, you will come across NPCs. Speaking to these NPCs will result many times in them asking you to perform a certain quest such as kill a difficult enemy, find X items, explore X area and so forth.

 

Complete 50 quests and you will unlock the trophy.

 

In the book, enter into your sidequest tab, and select a sidequest. If you are unsure of where to go, press Square to display the map to show you the approximate location of the selection.

 

Some quest givers will give additional quests upon completion.

 

NOTE – as the description does say, repeatable quests only count for the first time completing it.

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/9f6.jpg Sneaky (B)

Inflict negative conditions on enemy monsters at least 100 times.

 

In battle, status effects can have a huge impact on how hard/easy it is. Inflict status effects 100 times and you will unlock this.

 

Effects Include : Bind, Weaken, Frozen, Slow, Poison, Dazed, Etc

 

You can unlock this early as Layne has an ability that will cause Bind with high frequency.

 

You will likely naturally unlock around 30% story completion.

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/e1b.jpg Challenger (S)

Unlock a five star battle rank at the Tutor.

 

The only difficulty related trophy.

 

A tutor is noted by a Sword with Star symbols on the map. The first one is just NorthEast of Islahville.

 

Each star level will require you to finish X number of fights before you can unlock the next level.

 

BEWARE – If you decrease the battle level due to a boss/enemy group being too difficult, you will have to repeat the full amount of battles to unlock the next level again.

 

Overall, battles in Rainbow Moon are not overly difficult with the proper setups. This will likely unlock around the 50-60% main story mark if you up the battle level every so often.

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/c5f.jpg Fisherman (B)

Catch at least 75 fish.

 

Around the 50% mark in the game ( when you get to the town of Loose Rock ), you will be introduced to the fishing mini-game.

 

At first you will be limited to ~4-5 fish per day, with the amount you can fish raising up every so often.

 

Simply catch 75 fish and this trophy will unlock.

 

It is advisable to start fishing early and trying to do it every day to unlock higher level skills with the fishing minigame as this will help in acquiring 30 different fish for Fish Expert because the higher level fish are much more difficult to catch.

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/602.jpg Fish Expert (S)

Discover 30 different fish.

 

Each fishing hole in the game has a set grouping of fish. As you approach it, the bottom left corner of the screen will show what fish you’ve caught, and what fish you haven’t caught.

 

Catch 30 different fish to unlock this trophy.

 

Note that higher levels of fish will require better rods to catch as well as a high fishing level to be able to catch them successfully. Check with the item salesman in new towns/areas to try to stay up to date on your rod.

 

WZMDH0O.png

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/82b.jpg Gambler (S)

Win 100 prizes of category B or better.

 

Like the previous Rainbow Moon, pay money, have a chance at fabulous prizes.

 

This will not be available until you arrive at Monica’s Castle near the midpoint of the game. Walk directly past the castle and in the area behind you will come up to the wheel.

 

At first you are only allowed 1 spin per game day and as you progress further will be allowed additional spins. It progresses slowly. At level 1, you gain 20% progress. At level 2, you gain 5%. At level 3, you gain 2-3% per spin.

 

Start early to make life easier on yourself.

 

Coins spent does not matter, only the result of B or better. So feel free to spam the 50 coins as you can to level up your progress meter for more spins.

 

For a quick grind to get it out of the way. Spin at Mokimfu, take the nearby warp to Elatarval. REST AT THE CAMP NEARBY. Ensure it is after 6am. Go to Elatarval Inn and sleep. Warp to Mokimfu and spin. Take the warp to Elatarval and rest at the camp. You cannot stay at the Inn the second day so you must grind out 5 hours by running in circle. Rinse, repeat.

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/dd8.jpg Omniscient (B)

Use and study 40 magic books.

 

Early in the game each character is given a book of skills that relate to their class, and later you will be able to level up the rankings in the monstertamer/arena as well as learning additional abilities in various skillsets.

 

This will be key to advancing the story as better skills will be made available that can help to negate some difficult fights.

 

Most towns will have a bookshop, noted on the map as a Book symbol.

 

After using 40 books you will unlock this trophy.

 

8kgwezo.png

 

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/2a1.jpg Grid Specialist (S)

Expand a skill pattern of any skill 30 times.

 

In your travels you will come across an item known as the “Skill Expander” in chests and bags or as rewards for quests.

 

This will allow you to level up a skill to a higher rank, usually meaning that it gains a square or so in targetable distance.

 

Use them 30 times to unlock this trophy.

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/44f.jpg Master Breeder (B)

Hatch 5 monster eggs.

 

Once you are introduced to the monster tamer in Sun's Glade and complete his quests, you unlock the ability to add monsters to your party.

 

In combat, after beating an enemy they will drop a loot bag. If you kill enough of the same type of enemy you will receive an egg allowing you to use that enemy in battle.

 

Take these eggs to the monster trainer and hatch them in the egg incubator. They will typically take 3-6 battles to “hatch.”

 

Do this 5 times to unlock the trophy.

 

Will likely come naturally as you get new monsters to replace older ones.

 

TcbOmVa.png

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/81a.jpg Food Fighter (B)

Eat 50 of any food to do more damage in battle.

 

You will run into A LOT of food in the game. Apples, eggs, chicken legs, etc. Eat it.

 

Personally – it doesn’t feel like it gives much/any of an increase in battle, and the buff wears away so quickly that I really don’t bother with it beyond clearing out inventory for more food items. Down the food as you get it and save the space for stat boosts ( the speed boost is excellent for boss fights )

 

Most towns will have a food salesman noted with an apple mark on the world map. If you somehow haven’t unlocked this at the end of the game.

 

Will likely naturally unlock early if you don’t sell the food and use it as you acquire it.

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/e4f.jpg Survivor (S)

Survive 100 game days in the world of Lunah. (Defeats are permitted.)

 

Play the game. Will likely unlock naturally as you progress near the end of the game completing other trophies. You can be defeated as much as you want and it doesn’t stop/reset the timer.

 

The game will pause after a minute or two of idling so if you want to cheat this trophy you will need to rubberband the controller to walk in a circle. However it isn’t really needed.

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/73d.jpg Treasure Hunter (G)

Unearth at least 50 buried treasures.

 

In Solid Rock, you will find your first treasure map dealer.

 

He will sell you maps and shovels for finding buried treasures. Each map is usable once, and can be sold back to him after you find the treasures. Shovels are a 1 time use item but can be used indefinitely until you find the treasure.

 

Most maps will contain a detail in the description on the general area, and the map itself will display nearby landmarks.

Note - You do need the map in order to find the treasure.

 

Easiest to wait until endgame when you have access to the Airship and Future zones as well as more Rainbow coins to purchase maps. You will also have to clear several of the post game dungeons to find the "Merchant Seals" items to turn in, this will expand the Treasure map dealer's inventory by 2-4 per seal turned in.

 

How to get merchant seals :

 

After completing the story, you will unlock the postgame.

Continue the postgame until you reach "New Borgtonko." In this town, a NPC, Edmund, will ask you to acquire merchant seals to expand store inventories. Most postgame areas will have 1 merchant seal hidden in a chest somewhere.

 

1 - New Borgtonko

2 - Dust Temple

3 - Lost Taroonan

4 - Thousand Tears

5 - Ariella Undone

6 - Glimmer Mines

7 through 9 - Dark Maps

10 - Dungeon Map 17

 

Upon finding your 50th, this trophy will unlock.

 

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/099.jpg Insatiable (B)

Permanently increase any attribute for any characters 10 times using food.

 

Will likely be one of the first trophies you earn.

 

Completing quests and killing bosses will typically yield stat boosting items. These will increase STR, DEF, MP, HP and LUCK. You will encounter HUNDREDS during the course of the game.

 

Will unlock naturally at around 10-20% main story.

 

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/43d.jpg Bargaining Skills (B)

Achieve sales level 2 in any shop.

 

Slightly odd wording in the trophy.

 

Go to a shopkeeper.

 

Hit SQUARE to enter the selling menu.

 

Sell items to said shopkeep. The bar on the left-hand side will start to increase based on how expensive or cheap an item is, more expensive = more experience.

 

When you increase it to level 2 this trophy will unlock. The level results in higher selling prices for your goods so it is best to try to focus on 1 or 2 shopkeepers.

 

Will easily unlock when you sell off all the junk fish you come up with from the fishing minigame if you haven’t unlocked it already.

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/df7.jpg Wannabe Hero (B)

Defeat all of the monsters from the quest 'Monsters Everywhere.'

 

SLIGHTLY MISSABLE - You will not return to Boresville until POST GAME (50+ hours)

 

This will be one of the first side quests you receive in the game. Kill all the enemies and it will unlock.

 

If you haven’t unlocked this before flipping the dungeon switch in “Boresville” at the start of the game. Make sure you acquired it and read what the next step is in the side quest menu.

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/585.jpg Item Specialist (B)

Upgrade weapons or equipment by using them in battle 15 times.

 

Will almost assuredly come naturally.

 

Weapons and armor “level up” in battle by dealing and taking damage. Other items work on support magic/item use.

 

Each item has a set number of level ups that they can achieve, and very likely you will unlock this easily and early into the game.

 

Each level will allow you to add another boost at the blacksmith. Every time you get a new piece of equipment it will start at 0 and raise up again.

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/758.jpg Blacksmith (B)

Improve equipment 100 times at the using any materials.

 

Each town/location will typically have a blacksmith at it. He is noted on the map by the anvil symbol.

Each piece of equipment will start with a base amount that can be added. Leveling up the equipment will allow for more boosts to be added.

 

Do this 100 times and it will unlock.

 

Will naturally unlock early on if you keep up on upgrades at around the 30-50% main game completion.

 

Progress is trackable in the “Book” menu.

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/a3e.jpg Perfectionist (S)

Upgrade any piece of equipment to '+5' by using crystals.

 

In the game you will acquire “crystals” of varying colors.

 

These will go from gray,white,blue,green,orange and etc. Each allows you to bring the equipment from X to X+1. Each + will add a stat bonus ( the first is typically the most, with the rest giving a diminishing return ).

 

Do this 5 times and you will unlock this trophy.

 

Pending on how much you explore, will easily come after the 55% main story mark as the +5 upgrade crystals become very common.

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/7cf.jpg Level Fan (B)

Achieve 75 amount of level ups. This includes all team members, monsters and main characters alike.

 

Level up a total of 75 times. This is a cumulative on ALL your characters. Simply play the game and this will unlock naturally.

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/c50.jpg Level Master (S)

Bring all three main characters to level 70 or higher.

 

Level all characters to level 70. Will likely unlock naturally as you get somewhere around 80-90% main story completion if you explore around.

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/871.jpg Master Thief (B)

Steal at least 100 items from monsters.

 

Layne will unlock the ability “Theft” in the game. This will allow you to steal from enemies.

 

Highly recommend using a “Skill expander” on this ability to increase the range and make it somewhat easier to use. Using it more will increase your odds on stealing, but typically after 2 tries you'll steal an item from an enemy.

 

Do this 100 times.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/ac9.jpg Superwarrior (S)

Defeat 1,000 or more monsters.

 

This will likely come naturally as you play and explore the game. Kill 1000 total enemies and it will unlock.

 

Alternatively, you can sit in an early zone and enter into random battles at will and quickly grind out 10-20 enemies at a time.

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/4d0.jpg Bodybuilder (G)

Cause 100,000 damage with any attack.

 

Cause 100,000 damage with a single attack.

 

This will not come naturally in the normal storyline unless you spend a great deal of time grinding.

 

Upon Finishing the Main story, and the first few epilogue quests, you will arrive at Dust Temple.

 

Save before using some of the more expensive/rare materials.

 

The following strategy will help you 100k damage with little to no grinding, some minor tweaking of additional STR may be required, but if you match these stats, you should be able to achieve 100k damage.

 

We will be using Damion for this.

Find a total of 25 Moon Trophies.

 

Collectibles in the game. There are around 100 of these throughout the game. With many being quest rewards and in treasure chests for exploring the dungeons/world map.

 

If you explore thoroughly and complete quests as they come, this will unlock easily around the 70% main story mark.

Raise the level of any skill to 25 or higher.

 

As you use skills in game, they will award usage XP. This will cause the skill to level and receive a bonus of +% damage/healing/chance to steal/status infliction etc.

 

This will come naturally as you progress the game.

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1948/043.jpg Merchant (S)

Purchase 100,000 coins worth of items from any merchant.

 

Spend 100,000 coins on purchasing items. Will likely come naturally near the end of the game when equipment starts to get very pricey. However, if it hasn’t, simply save, sell everything you have, including equipment and purchase items from a merchant.

Tips and tricks.

 

As I’ve gone through the game, certain portions have been quite difficult, and some have been super easy. I’ve progressed my difficulty meter up to 6* or something like that at around the time you fight green eyes after getting the ship and although it is difficult, it's actually still fairly easy.

 

Some tips to try to make life easier for y’all.

 

Rainbow Coins – The currency of the game. Bit of a pain in the middle portions of the game to get. Once you unlock fishing life gets a bit easier if you want to grind out some cash, but for the middle 15-20% of the main story (50-70% overall, and then some) money is a major hurdle. Especially when you get new equipment out in the store and have several characters to equip.

 

Early on, focus more so on useful stat increases. Helms are super useful as they give you a massive bump to speed, armor typically only gives health + def and should be upgraded if you start to die easily or have a lot of extra cash.

 

You end up picking up a lot of different weapons/helms/armor for characters in each section so advance some to find quests/treasure chests that reward them. Ashly notably gets a staff with Femme Fatale that is good for quite a while because of the +50% attack boost against males it gets. Layne is about the same nearer the start since he gets a bow with kamikaze on it that lasts awhile, as well as his first weapon or so has the First attack boost on it when he’s still fast enough to do a solid bit of damage.

 

Skimp where you can, avoid buying every single piece of weapons, armor, trinkets and helms in a given area. Odds are by the time you can afford them all, the next tier will be coming up. If you aren’t having a terribly difficult time in a zone, you probably won’t need to upgrade your equipment much more until you encounter tougher enemies.

 

Keep boosting your battle level as well, it gives you a % + increase to coins received, which can add up after a while. Each step does make the game much more difficult, though the first several aren’t bad.

 

Fishing is great for coins as well; however, the rods are a bit expensive. Don’t buy a new rod unless you’re getting the message “You can’t fish here with this rod. “I skipped the 4th level rod and jumped directly to level 5 rod, saving a good chunk of change in the process. You can make good money fishing, but keep in mind you must counter what you spent on the rod before it is profitable. At Rod 5 fish are 120-150 apiece, but much more difficult to catch. IE - at fishing level 49 with a 5* rod, I can catch fish with 20-22k relatively normally. You do need a decent pattern for it.

 

My go to fish setup after level 30 (Stam+ unlock & level 5 rod) -

 

Med > light > Recover > Wait > Med > Light > Med > Wait > Recover > Stam+ > Med > Light > Med > Light will work fairly well.

 

Let’s talk stats.

 

HP – incredibly useful early game, looses some luster late game when armor and equipment give huge boosts. Check the stats when boosting it, as you should divide the bonus by the cost and make sure you’re taking the best bang for your buck on it.

 

Equipment boost wise – if an item you’re using for speed/str has it, ok. But don’t focus on it.

 

MP – It doesn’t get an upgrade all that often so it isn’t a huge deal to spend some tokens here.

 

Equipment boost wise – if an item you’re using for SPD or STR has it, good, otherwise I wouldn’t really focus on it unless you’re constantly having MP issues.

 

STR – Very useful if you want to deal damage. Get it when you see if for your 3 main characters.

 

Equipment boost wise – Good stat to add.

 

DEF – GARBAGE. Really, I’ve added it to things and it doesn’t seem to mitigate much overall damage. HP > DEF. Unless you’re swimming in shards, don’t waste them here. If you plan on playing the game at 5* or above, avoid it. The mitigation you receive is nowhere near the amount of incoming damage you’ll be taking.

 

SPD – AMAZING. Boost this every time it is there on your character boost menu. Very useful and will not steer you wrong. More speed = you may go first = less enemies = less headache.

 

Equipment boost wise – BOOST IT. MORE SPEED AND MORE STRENGTH.

 

LCK – It is a stat. Not great either. Make you crit more often. Get if you have a ton of tokens and don’t need them, otherwise focus on SPD, STR or HP.

 

DON”T WASTE BLUE/RED TOKENS ON LUCK/DEF IF SOMEONE NEEEDS THEM FOR SPD/STR!

 

ACTION + - GET IT ASAP.

 

COMBO + - Combos are good, but since you can only do a few they aren’t all that great really. Get it if you want, but I’d save the tokens for SP or Action+

 

SP – if you need it get it, otherwise just wait until you need it.

 

Stat priority

RED/BLUE: SPD<STR<HP<LCK<DEF

 

MP – Get at your discretion

 

BROWN: ACTION<SP(if needed)<Combo

 

MONSTER HATCHING.

 

Ok, you got your first monster, Audrey 2. Get it both healing books and keep it in the back row. Seriously, I’m at like 75% main story and I still use this thing. Why? Because it has super boosted revive/healing/status affliction healing. I’m looking to change it out, but that’s a hell of a good run. If you keep up with speed boosting trinkets and some minor +SPD blacksmith buffs, it remains a solid character for awhile.

 

Monster 2 – For myself, I took one of the DJINN, but any character with good SPD and status + magic is useful. HASTE IS A GODSEND. SLOW IS A GODSEND. Frozen is pretty useful and weaken is alright. Boost the speed on it so it can go after the first volley from the enemies or after you main crew and get everyone hasted and if there is a boss slowed and frozen (if possible)

 

Monster 3 – Up to you. Personally, I took a Robo Mk1. Has some decent support skills, decent attack and can soak some damage from my main crew. Pick up what you’re lacking here.

 

Near the end of the game - Make an armor type enemy - "Living Armor" that will basically just soak tons of damage. They get to wear 2 socks, and a clock. Allowing them to have massive HP + quicker turns. The armor also learns healing magic, so you can get them to learn revive if anyone dies. Just make sure they are stacked with several useful passives like poison/freeze resist, and first turn defense and put them up front.

 

Trainer vs Incubator leveling.

 

GO WITH THE TRAINER WHEN YOU GET IT.

Trainer seems to get a nice +XP bonus as well. Allowing you to overlevel a monster in an area and then use them in the next zone for some easy kills. Your first couple of monsters you may want to level in the incubator to be useful quicker, but then train the one you want to use and dump the rest to the monsterhouse.

 

 

PASSIVE SKILLS:

 

Do you have KAMIKAZE on LAYNE and DAMION yet? GET IT.

Do you have DAREDEVIL? Get it.

Do the enemies in the zone use a lot of poison – Enable as needed.

Do the enemies in the zone use a lot of bind – Enable as needed.

LEVEL UP HP/MP refill – get it.

Full stomach – JUNKY.

Ignorance – JUNKY.

First attack bonus – Enable if you get the first attack, otherwise junky

UFO Killer – Enable when lots of flying enemies. Obviously.

Femme Fatale – Useful for quite a while. ( not 100% if it is just a special item passive or not, yet )

More to add later.

All right, everything is where I want it at this time. Pretty pleased with it. Finished to 100% now as well. Game was good, but wow does the difficulty step up if you start post game at 6* or above. Was getting beat down on every zone and had a terrible time with it.

 

Comment away, if anyone is actually playing this.

Great guide man. Really hope this game gets a little more focus - there's so little out there on the net about it.

 

I do have a couple of silly questions... not specific to the guide but for info that others may find useful.

 

Q1: How do you get back to Boreville!? 60 hours in, at post game, and not idea how to get there.

 

Q2: Any tips for how to handle early post-game, particularly the best way to farm coins for gearing up?

You can buy the shard "Arca" from one of the merchants, that's boresville.

 

As far as getting coins, if you're on a decent BR you get that bonus, and stealing from enemies can net you a good bit pretty fast.

 

Some of the Monster hunts award special drops that are worth a lot, IIRC the one in the final city that spawns at night near the footprints, has a drop that can sell for a bit.

 

Bit of a pain right when you start post-game because the game doesn't really help you all that much. I ended up just dropping it from BR7 to 1 to speed through it and get the platinum finished.

Thanks!

 

Yes I discovered last night Boreville can only be accessed through Las Manas which is why I was having trouble finding it.

 

Good to know about coins. I'm trying to get Monster Hunt XXI just outside Camp Ultimate (requires a mechanical party member I believe) but he's not spawning for some reason.

 

Finally I made a huge error - worth knowing about if you're planning to complete post game. I learned you need to have the BR7 key in order to complete end game. Not knowing this, I got myself to rank 6, decided it was getting a little difficult, and then reverted back to BR1. Now I have to work all the way back up again! Lesson learned, but it does give me more reason to farm coins/drops on the way.

 

I think there are also passive abilities for x2 XP and x2 Coins which will be useful when I find them.

Been looking for a guide on this for a bit, should have known to come looking here! I forget the name, but its the ice area in current times, and its one of the monster hunts. I need to bypass a series of a crap ton of levers. I've spent hours trying to figure it out, and I'm stumped... any help would be appreciated!

 

Great guide, thanks for doing this!:applause:

If it's the one where you have 4 rooms with levers and it tells you to point it towards the monster with the most, it's referring to that room individually, not the entire zone, so you basically split it into 4 rooms.

 

I actually messed up that place pretty badly because I forgot to go into the 4th room and thought there was only 3. Kept racing back and forth like what am I doing wrong!

this guide and the advices help a lot! :highfive: its a Little bit difficult for me to understand each expression in English because its not my motherlanguage, but I try my best.

 

 

wannabe hero Trophy:confused:: i think I missed that one, and I didnt check the south arca area at the beginning. there was no chance for me to go back to this Boresville later. Monsterhunt l, ll and lll is done, but will I be able to do this trophy in the postgame? or can I restart later the game and catch up on this one? or must I replay the entire game just because of that one?:shock:

You can only return to Boresville after completing the main storyline. The item vendor in the floating city sells the crystal to return there.

 

Or you could just quickly make a new game and it's not very far in, either work pretty easily.

 

Some of the treasure maps you'll get when you're going for the 50 treasure trophy will require you to go to boresville anyway.

Does anyone know if some of the treasures to dig are bugged?

I'm experiencing troubles with finding the treasure in some areas.

I've not found the one in ozemir and some caves.

Thanks

 

Ozemir?? that must be at the beginning or at the final, i'm level 64 and i dont remember that i ve passed this area. doesn't it work with the showel and treasure map? and without light theres no chance to detect them in the caves or night...

What do I need to do to get more treasure maps? I think I found almost all of them, but I need to do some quest (I read that somewhere) to open up more.

Cheers

 

You need to get merchant seals. Continue the endgame until you make the new main base area, an NPC will be there and give you a quest to find them. Each endgame dungeon typically has 1 in it and each seal adds 2-3 new maps.

Sorry. Could you elaborate on this 'main base area'? Where is it? What is called?

Trying to recall the name, thinking it's New Borgtonko, it's made up of a bunch of islands connected by bridge, not 100% though. If you're following the main quest in the postgame, you will end up going there and having it act as your main hub with the level increase NPC, Merchant seal NPC and a load of other questgivers there.

Heya and thanks a million for the guide.

 

I just started playing the game and it seems to be as amazing as Rainbow Moon but when I checked the guide, you wrote that difficulty does affect trophies. I didn't really get an option to choose any difficulty in the beginning except getting some help or go for the pure game with no help (I did choose 2nd).

 

Can you maybe just clarify on this one?

 

Thanks a lot

Unlock a five star battle rank at the Tutor.

 

The only difficulty related trophy.

 

A tutor is noted by a Sword with Star symbols on the map. The first one is just NorthEast of Islahville.

 

Each star level will require you to finish X number of fights before you can unlock the next level.

 

BEWARE – If you decrease the battle level due to a boss/enemy group being too difficult, you will have to repeat the full amount of battles to unlock the next level again.

 

Overall, battles in Rainbow Moon are not overly difficult with the proper setups. This will likely unlock around the 50-60% main story mark if you up the battle level every so often.

 

 

 

 

This is the difficulty trophy, you adjust it in the main game. 5 stars isn't too bad to achieve. Gets harder when you hit 7 and 8 stars. I went through the game and finished up around a 6 or 7 at the final boss. Gets annoying in the 15+ enemy fights, but not all that bad.

Thanks a lot, I nearly thought it's that. So basically you unlock the trophy at Rank 5 and I assume you can just decrease then if needed, doesn't sound too bad.
