Road Map

Introduction:

 

This is the finale of the Ar tonelico series. This RPG series, developed by Gust, started on the PS2 with the releases of Ar tonelico: Melody of Elemia and Ar tonelico II: Melody of Metafalica. This game ditches the turn based battle system the previous games had and this time opts for an action style battle system, similar to the Tales series and Star Ocean series. While it is not crucial to play the prequels before playing this one, if you have played them, you will have a better understanding of the story and a few of the recurring characters. The in-game encyclopedia does clear things up for those unfamiliar with the previous games.

 

This is a rather time consuming platinum, although it is not necessary difficult. This game has many missable trophies, including eight different endings. It can be done in one playthrough if you know where to save, but I recommend three playthroughs for the best results. This game features New Game+, which allows you to pick three different starting spots. You can start at the beginning, Phase 2, or before the Battle of Destiny in Phase 3. Levels, DP, money, and Play Time always carry over. Equipment and Cosmosphere completion does not carry over, but if you choose to start from later in the game, you will have the equipment and Cosmosphere completion you had when you originally reached that point of the game.

 

Step 1: Play through the game. Get the Bad Ending and (Any) Normal Ending.

 

Before you start, I recommend that you read the trophy guide for Finnel's True Master and *especially* Saki's Groom. These contain easily missable events that can ruin your chance of completing each Reyvateil's Cosmosphere. As part of the story early on, you have to complete at least level 1 of each girl's Cosmosphere, and Saki has some easily missed events in level 1. This should avoid having to do New Game+ from the very beginning and instead you can always start from Phase 2.

 

Play though the game normally. Once you reach Phase 2, there will be events, and you have to choose who do you want to protect. Whoever you choose (Saki or Finnel), she will earn a heart. There will be two more choices. Be sure to pick the same Reyvateil for all the choices so she can have three hearts. I personally recommend to do Finnel's route first, since Saki's Cosmosphere is so easy to mess up, but it does not matter. In Phase 3, at Tower Block A, there will be a fight called "Battle of Destiny" where you fight the MYU. Fail to defeat the MYU (simply survive for about 7 minutes, see the MYU guide after the trophy guide). Continue the story and at the save point in Moocheriel, be sure to make a NEW save. Continue, and you will be given a choice. Choose to "Stop her from singing" and you will have a boss battle.

 

Defeat the boss and you will earn the Bad Ending. You can save the clear data after the ending (this also unlocks the Extras menu from the title screen), but do not overwrite any data. Reload the save at Moocheriel and this time choose "Just watch". Instead of a boss battle at Moocheriel, you will have to climb Tower Block A. Here, there will be a boss battle. Win, and you unlock either Saki Normal Ending or Finnel Normal Ending, depending on who has more hearts. After the ending, save the clear data.

 

Step 2: True Ending.

 

From the title screen, load the clear data you have just saved. This triggers New Game+, and you can choose between three starting points. Choose "Battle of Destiny" and you will start on Tower Block A just before the MYU fight. Defeat the MYU (see the MYU guide, located after the trophy guide, for tips, this is a good time to get Purge Carnival), and continue.

 

In Moocheriel, when you are given a choice, choose "Stop her from singing" and win the boss battle. If done correctly, you will go to Phase 4. Now would be a good time to focus on getting the trophies The Alchemist, The Fighting Machine, The Master of Unlocking, Free of the Rat Race, Mrs. Reyvinson, The Ravager, Save Obsession Syndrome, and either Saki's Groom or Finnel's True Master. See their respective trophy guides for more information. After you complete Phase 4 and defeat the final boss, you will either earn Saki True Ending or Finnel Normal Ending, depending on the Reyvateil you chose. Do not forget to save the clear data.

 

Step 3: Normal and True Ending with the other Reyvateil.

 

Load the clear data you just saved after getting the true ending. This time, choose to start from Phase 2. Proceed through the game and when you are give a choice pick a Reyvateil, pick the other one. If you sided with Finnel on your first playthrough, side with Saki this time and vice versa. Be sure to give all your hearts to the same Reyvateil. In Tower Block A, before you make your third heart decision, make a NEW save here and do NOT overwrite it (thanks superpj). In Phase 3, be sure to defeat the MYU within the time limit, although it should be easier this time since you are at a higher level. Continue the story until Moocheriel, and make a NEW save at the save point. When given a choice, choose "Just Watch" and proceed to climb Tower Block A. Defeat the boss there and you will unlock either Saki Normal Ending or Finnel Normal Ending. Reload the Moocheriel save, and this time choose "Stop her from singing" and win the battle. You will reach Phase 4. Be sure to complete the Reyvateil's Cosmosphere to earn either Saki's Groom or Finnel's True Master before you finished the game. After you complete the game, you will unlock either Saki True Ending or Finnel True Ending. Do not forget to save the clear data.

 

Step 4: Tyria's Normal and True Ending.

 

Load the save data you had in Tower Block A, before you made your third heart decision. This time give the final heart to the other Reyvateil (thanks again to superpj). If you do not have this file, you can load the clear data you just saved and start again from Phase 2 and do NOT give all the hearts to the same Reyvateil. One Reyvateil should have two hearts and the other just one. Defeat MYU in Phase 3 and choose to "Stop her singing" in Moocheriel. You will proceed to Phase 4, and do not accept any of the Reyvateils in their level 8 Cosmosphere (better yet, do not touch their level 8 at all). Continue the game (do NOT touch Tyria's level 3 Cosmosphere yet) until you reach the point where you have to synthesize the Glasteria Plate. Create a NEW save before you complete Tyria's Cosmosphere and then make the item. Be sure to keep a save before completing Tyria's Cosmosphere as you will need it for Cocona's Ending. Complete Tyria's level 3 Cosmosphere and get all three of her Cosmosphere endings (this unlocks Tyria's Darling).

 

Rest at an inn and choose to accept Tyria (this unlocks Lovey Dovey with Tyria). Make a different NEW save here, and proceed to make the Glasteria Plate. After some events, you will be given a choice. Choose "I want to save Tyria" and the game will end. You should earn Tyria Normal Ending. Reload the save just before you made the Glasteria Plate and make the required item. When given a choice, this time choose "I'll actually save the world!". Continue to finish Phase 4 as normal and defeat the final boss. After all the events, you will earn Tyria True Ending.

 

Step 5: Cocona's Ending.

 

Reload the save before you completed Tyria's level 3 Cosmosphere. Continue the game and do not touch Tyria's level 3 Cosmosphere, and do not touch Saki's or Finnel's level 8 Cosmosphere. Create the Glasteria Plate and proceed to complete the game. You will unlock Cocona Ending after the credits and some following events.

 

Step 6: Cleanup

 

If you have followed my road map and trophy guide correctly, you should have unlocked most of the trophies, except for maybe Our Valued Customer (play for 100 hours). If there is anything that you missed, you can use New Game+ and start from the beginning to clean up. Some trophy related Cosmosphere events can be gotten through Cosmosphere Replay in the Extras menu from the title screen (but you cannot get any Cosmosphere completion trophies with this method). If you are done, and need the 100 hour trophy, you can load the save data with the highest play time and leave the game running overnight. I am not responsible for any overheated PS3s though.

To get Saki's normal ending, you must have two or three hearts with Saki. The result of the MYU fight in Phase 3 does not matter. In Moocheriel, when you are given a choice on whether to stop Saki's singing, choose "Just watch". Afterwards, you will climb Tower Block A and fight a boss. After you win, you will earn this ending. Trophy unlocks after the credits and following events.

Unlocked 100% of Saki's CS.

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!

 

To unlock this trophy, you must get 100% completion in Saki's Cosmosphere. This is very easy to mess up if do not know what you are doing. When there are various starred locations, you should do the locations with the least amount of importance first (importance appears under the location name when you select it, from * to ***). Starred events with an importance rating less than *** usually are missable, so do them first.

 

In level 1, there are some easily missed events. After the initial event in Organito Hut, you must return to Organito Hut and when given a choice, choose to take a peek. After that event, you must go to the Stonehenge and view the event. You must do this before going to the World Tree Alfage, or you will miss them.

 

In level 3, be sure to stop the "Sexy Show". If you have done everything right up to this point, at the completion of level 3, the trophy Saki's Friend should unlock. If not, you missed something.

 

Before you proceed to Phase 4, ideally before the MYU fight in Phase 3 (although you can do it immediately afterwards), you must dive into Saki's level 7 Cosmosphere. There is a missable event here that disappears once you reach Phase 4. Do all the events that you see until you can go no farther. The missable event in Saki's level 7 Cosmosphere is located at the Ulurua's Egg and unlocks the Hyuma, Ulurua. You cannot complete Saki's level 7 Cosmosphere until you reach phase 4, however. Getting the three required talk topics to dive into level 7 before Phase 4 can be difficult. When you complete Saki's level 6 Cosmosphere, you will get a level 7 topic after you rest. Another level 7 topic appears after some events in Clustania (Phase 3) and you automatically arrive in Akane's House. Go to the bedroom and there you find the level 7 talk topic. To get the third talk topic, you must synthesize a tranquility (the item unsynthesized will appear as ?Injector?). This recipe is found in Lymph Vessel, where you first met Tyria and Filament purges (the event back in Phase 2). You must get this recipe before you fight MYU or this section will get blocked off. Synthesize this item and rest afterwards. This will give you the three required talk topics to dive into level 7.

 

After you complete level 9, save and quit. Go to the Extras menu at the title screen. Check Saki's Cosmosphere completion. If you have done everything correctly, it should read 98%. If not, you have messed up, and should start a new game to complete it. If you have 98% completion, load your save, and dive back into Saki and there will be a starred location with an event. After the event, this trophy should unlock.

 

If you need help in completing Saki's Cosmosphere, you can look at this walkthrough. Credit given to drachemeister: http://www.gamefaqs.com/ps3/976762-ar-tonelico-qoga-knell-of-ar-ciel/faqs/62080

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/931/02.jpgFinnel's True Masterhttp://www.ps3trophies.org/images/site/icons/trophy_bronze.png(missable!)

Unlocked 100% of Finnel's CS.

 

To unlock this trophy, you must get 100% completion in Finnel's Cosmosphere. This Cosmosphere is significantly easier to complete than Saki's Cosmosphere, but there are still some missable events. Remember that when there are multiple starred events, do the ones with the least amount of importance first (they appear with a rating from * to *** under the location name when you walk to them). When you first dive into Finnel's levels 2-5, they are actually illusion levels. To "complete" her illusion level 5, you must first meet Teppo in Saki's Cosmosphere. After "completing" her illusion level 5, you are then sent to her real level 2.

 

After you complete level 9, save and quit. Go to the Extras menu at the title and check Finnel's Cosmosphere completion. If you have done everything correctly, it should read 95%. If not, you have messed up and need to use new game to start over and complete it. If you have 95% completion, load your save, and dive back into Finnel. There are various starred events, and after the last one, this trophy should unlock.

 

If you need help in completing Finnel's Cosmosphere, you can look at this walkthrough. Credit given to drachemeister: http://www.gamefaqs.com/ps3/976762-ar-tonelico-qoga-knell-of-ar-ciel/faqs/62080

You must win 300 battles. It must be all on the same playthrough. You should get this while going for The Ravager.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/931/02.jpgOur Valued Customerhttp://www.ps3trophies.org/images/site/icons/trophy_bronze.png

Played this game for 100 hours.

 

This is likely the last trophy you will unlock. The in-game timer does not necessary have to reach 100 hours, as the system data file (this saves everytime you save) actually keeps track of how long you have played. I had a file at 96 hours and when I saved, the trophy popped up. If you need more hours, you can leave the game running overnight, but if you do, make sure that the PS3 is well ventilated and dust free.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/931/02.jpgThe Master of Unlockinghttp://www.ps3trophies.org/images/site/icons/trophy_bronze.png

Dug through all treasure chests.

 

To earn this trophy, you must open all the treasure chests in the game. While none of the treasure chests are missable, the final chest is located in XP Shell past the point of no return. The point of no return is the room above the save point the second time you enter XP Shell. Once you enter, the alarm will sound, and you are given a warning that you cannot go back. The chest is on the left side. If you need a reference, this video shows the location of the final chest. I give credit to TheSkeithMaster for the video (it is from the Japanese version, but it is the same for the North American version).

 

[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A641RktQsTs]YouTube - Ar tonelico 3 -[/ame]

 

If you have opened all the chests, the trophy should unlock after opening this chest. If not, do NOT save the game, and load a previous save. Search throughout the game for the missing chest(s). Here are some easily missed locations:

 

Be sure to get all the chests in the prison in Phase 1 before you go down the cliff. While you can return, it involves making a difficult wall jump.

 

In Garvelt Bridge, there are two chests were you fought the boss in Phase 4. Since you are sent back out immediately after defeating the boss, you have to go through the dungeon again.

 

If you need help in finding all the treasures, you can look at this checklist. Caution, as there are location spoilers. Credit given to Aphrah:

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/931/02.jpgFree of the Rat Racehttp://www.ps3trophies.org/images/site/icons/trophy_bronze.png

Money hit the maximum value.

 

The maximum amount of money you can have is 9,999,999 leaf. You will not reach this number by just defeating monsters. Here is an easy way to do this. You must have at least 150,000 leaf and a lot of DP (ideally 99,999 DP for all three Reyvateils). Buy 99 Refracting Capes and 99 Silver Materials. Create 99 Lethal Dresses and then sell them. Repeat the process. Each time, you should profit around 500,000 leaf.

 

Here is a video that shows how it is done. It is from the Japanese version, but you can still visualize it. Credit given to MasterLL.

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/931/02.jpgMrs. Reyvinsonhttp://www.ps3trophies.org/images/site/icons/trophy_bronze.png

Someone's DP hit the maximum.

 

One of your Reyvateils must hit 99,999 DP. You should easily earn this by the end of the game in Phase 4. If not, you can grind for DP in XP Shell, as battles give you a lot of EXP and DP.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/931/03.jpgSaki True Endinghttp://www.ps3trophies.org/images/site/icons/trophy_silver.png(missable!)

Saw Saki's happy ending.

 

To get Saki's ending, you must reach Phase 4, and have at least two hearts with Saki (three is recommended). To reach Phase 4, you must have defeated MYU within the time limit and have chosen to stop Saki's singing in Moocheriel. If you have three hearts, you are automatically locked into this ending, but with two hearts, you can accept Saki in her level 8 Cosmosphere. Finish Phase 4 and after the credits there will be an event and you should earn this trophy.

 

While you are on Saki's true path, you should complete her Cosmosphere to earn the Saki's Groom trophy.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/931/03.jpgFinnel True Endinghttp://www.ps3trophies.org/images/site/icons/trophy_silver.png(missable!)

Saw Finnel's happy ending.

 

The instructions are the same for Saki True Ending, except you need at least two hearts with Finnel (three is recommended). If you have three hearts, you are automatically locked into this ending, but with two hearts, you have to accept Finnel in her level 8 Cosmosphere. After you finish Phase 4 and after the credits, there will be an event and you should earn this trophy.

 

While you are on Finnel's true path, you should complete her Cosmosphere to earn Finnel's True Master trophy.

Hidden Trophies

http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/../images/trophies/931/02.jpgTyria Normal Endinghttp://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/../images/site/icons/trophy_bronze.png(missable!)

Saw Tyria's normal ending.

Tyria is a Reyvateil who joins in Phase 4. To get her normal ending, you cannot give all three hearts to the same Reyvateil. You must complete level 3 of her Cosmosphere BEFORE you synthesize the Glasteria Plate. After you complete level 3, rest at an inn or save point. There will be an event, and you must accept her. After you synthesize the Glasteria Plate, you will be given a choice. Choose "I want to save Tyria" and the game will immediately end. After the credits and the following event, you unlock this trophy.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/../images/trophies/931/02.jpgBad Endinghttp://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/../images/site/icons/trophy_bronze.png(missable!)

Faced Saki's and Finnel's demise.

 

To get the bad ending, you have to fail to defeat the MYU within the time limit and in Mooncheriel, you must choose to stop Saki's singing. After you stop her singing, you will fight a boss. After you win, you will get this ending.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/../images/trophies/931/02.jpgTyria's Fellowhttp://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/../images/site/icons/trophy_bronze.png

http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/../images/trophies/931/02.jpgTyria's Darlinghttp://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/../images/site/icons/trophy_bronze.png

Unlocked 100% of Tyria's CS.

 

You must first reach Phase 4, since Tyria joins this late in the game. To earn this trophy, you must complete all three levels of her Cosmosphere. You must earn all three endings (Bad, Normal, and Happy) in her level 3 Cosmosphere. I recommend completing her Cosmosphere while aiming for her endings, although it can be completed on Saki's or Finnel's true paths.

 

If you need help in completing Tyria's Cosmosphere, you can look at this walkthrough. Credit given to drachemeister: http://www.gamefaqs.com/ps3/976762-ar-tonelico-qoga-knell-of-ar-ciel/faqs/62080

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/../images/trophies/931/02.jpgThe Peonhttp://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/../images/site/icons/trophy_bronze.png

Fled 100 times.

 

You must run from battle 100 times, in the same playthrough. To run, when you enter battle, press :triangle: to bring up the Battle Menu. Choose "Escape". It works 100% of the time (you cannot escape from boss battles, however). I got this while looking for all the treasure chests. Fleeing does not empty the Encounter Bar.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/../images/trophies/931/02.jpgThe Ravagerhttp://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/../images/site/icons/trophy_bronze.png

Encounter Bar depleted 25 times.

 

You will likely get this trophy while aiming for The Fighting Machine. You have to deplete the Encounter Bar which is located on the bottom right part of the screen. As you walk around, this bar turns from blue to red, and the closer to red it gets, the more likely you will enter a battle. When you win a battle, the Encounter Bar depletes a little bit, and once it completely depletes, you will no longer have any random encounters as long as you stay in the dungeon. Do this 25 times to earn this trophy. If you want to replete the bar, just leave the area and come back. It will fully replete. Saving and loading does NOT replete the bar.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/../images/trophies/931/02.jpgSave Obsession Syndromehttp://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/../images/site/icons/trophy_bronze.png

Saved 100 times.

 

You should get this as you progress during the game. If not, you can continuously save at the same save point. After 100 saves, this trophy unlocks.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/../images/trophies/931/02.jpgSaki Romantic Scene 1http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/../images/site/icons/trophy_bronze.png(missable!)

Unlocked the event.

 

To unlock this event, you must have picked Saki at the Garvelt Bridge in Phase 2. After the events at Lymph Vessel, rest at an inn (needed to continue the story), and this event unlocks.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/../images/trophies/931/02.jpgGood Mood With Finnel 1http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/../images/site/icons/trophy_bronze.png(missable!)

Unlocked the event.

 

To unlock this event, you must have picked Finnel at the Garvelt Bridge in Phase 2. Continue the story and you will unlock this event.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/../images/trophies/931/02.jpgSaki Romantic Scene 2http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/../images/site/icons/trophy_bronze.png(missable!)

Saw Tyria's happy ending.

 

To earn Tyria's ending, you must reach Phase 4, and cannot have any Reyvateils with three hearts and you cannot accept any of the Reyvateils in their level 8 Cosmosphere. You must complete level 3 of her Cosmosphere, BEFORE you make the Glasteria Plate, and rest. Accept Tyria in this event (this unlocks the Lovey Dovey with Tyria trophy), and synthesize the Glasteria Plate. Afterwards, you will have a decision. Choose "I'll actually save the world!", and continue to finish Phase 4 normally. Defeat the final boss and watch the ending, credits, and the events. This should pop up.

To earn Cocona's ending, you cannot give any of the Reyvateils all three hearts, and you cannot accept them in their level 8 Cosmosphere. Do not accept Tyria if you complete her level 3 Cosmosphere (ideally, do not touch her level 3 Cosmosphere at all). Complete Phase 4 and defeat the final boss, and you will earn this ending. After the events after the credits, this should unlock.

To earn this trophy, you must press :select: during Cosmosphere events. This brings up a random mudane picture that covers the screen. Do this 100 times (around 200 button presses) and this trophy should unlock. It can be done is Cosmosphere Replay from the Extras menu.

Took off 3 pieces of clothes at once.

 

Before you attempt this trophy, you must have completed level 6 with the Reyvateil you attempt to do this with. You must have purge animation set to ON. In battle, keep getting hits on enemies while a red beat (check the Harmograph on the bottom of the screen) to get Beat Ups. Even when the words "Purge Ready", you must continue to get Beat Ups (around 25). You must hold down any three shoulder buttons (:l1:, :l2:, :r1:, :r2:), and while the Harmograph's bar is on a RED beat, shake your controller. If done correctly, you will see the Reyvateil purge three times at once with complete animation and this trophy should pop.

Heroines Purged 3 times, and Vanguards stripped.

 

This can be done at the same time as Return to Innocence, although it is not a prerequisite. Before you attempt this, you must have synthesize the ultimate moves for each Vanguard. The Supermoves needed are: ?Engineer EX? for Aota, ?V Board Trick SP? for Cocona, and ?Ultimate Med Tech? for Hikari Gojo. In battle, you must have a Reyvateil purged three levels. It does not have to be done all at once nor it has to be done on a red beat. After the Reyvateil has been purged three time, wait until the Burst guage reaches at least 30,000%. Go to the Battle Menu (press :triangle:) and choose "Supermove Execution". There will be an animation with the Vanguard's attack (and loses some clothes in the process). Wait until the Burst guage reaches 30,000% again, and go back to the Battle Menu. Choose a different Vanguard and choose "Supermove Execution" again. Wait for the Burst guage to reach 30,000% again and repeat the process for the third vanguard. This trophy should unlock during the animation. The MYU battle is a great place to attempt this, although Phase 4 has plenty of opportunities.

MYU Guide

 

This is a battle that you encounter in Tower Block A about halfway through Phase 3. This battle is referred as the "Battle of Destiny". The results of this battle affects what ending you can get. This is a rather tough battle and it is timed. If you want reach Phase 4, you must defeat it within the time limit.

 

If you are trying to get the Bad Ending, simply survive for about seven minutes. You should bring a lot of healing items and keep your HP up. MYU has a charged attack named "Ar tonelico ver. 1" which hits the entire party and hurts a lot (not enough wipe out your party unless you are low on HP). When you see rings around MYU and there is a blue bar moving from right to left on the Harmograph (bottom of the screen), this means that MYU is charging. You can cancel out his charge attack by continuously attacking him. MYU has a lot of HP and high defense, so as long as you do not use any Vanguards' Supermoves or the Reyvateil's Flipsphere, you should run out of time. There will be a cutscene after you run out of time.

 

To easily defeat it, you can set the difficulty to "Easy", since difficulty does not affect trophies. You should synthesize all the Vanguards' ultimate moves before you fight this. The moves are: ?Engineer EX? for Aota, ?V Board Trick SP? for Cocona, and ?Ultimate Med Tech? for Hikari Gojo. You want to keep getting Beat Ups and purge your Reyvateil three times. Once this happens, wait for the Burst Gauge to reach 30,000% and execute a Supermove from the Battle Menu. Repeat the process for the other two Vanguards (this unlocks Purge Carnival, see that trophy for a better description). After this, when Purge Ready is displayed, perform a Flipsphere and this boss should go down. If not, repeat the entire process again and this boss should not last much longer. There will be a cutscene once you destroy the MYU.

 

Here is a video on how to defeat the boss. Credit given to MasterLL. Skip to 5:58 for the boss battle. Caution, potentially NSFW due to the purges.

Ending List and Guide

 

There are eight endings to this game. If you are aiming for a certain ending, this simplified guide will tell you how it is done.

 

Bad Ending: The heart choices do not matter. You must fail to defeat MYU. In Moocheriel, you must stop Saki's singing.

 

Saki's Normal Ending: Saki must have at least two hearts. The result of the MYU battle does not matter. In Moocheriel, do not stop Saki's singing.

 

Finnel's Normal Ending: Finnel must have at least two hearts. The result of the MYU battle does not matter. In Moocheriel, do not stop Saki's singing.

 

Saki's True Ending: Saki must have at least two hearts (three is recommended). You must defeat MYU within the time limit. In Moocheriel, stop Saki's singing. If you have two hearts, you must dive into Saki's Cosmosphere, level 8, and accept Saki. If you have three hearts, you are automatically locked into her ending.

 

Finnel's True Ending: Finnel must have at least two hearts (three is recommended). You must defeat MYU within the time limit. In Moocheriel, stop Saki's singing. If you have two hearts, you must dive into Finnel's Cosmosphere, level 8, and accept Finnel. If you have three hearts, you are automatically locked into her ending.

 

Tyria's Normal Ending: None of the Reyvateils can have three hearts. You must defeat MYU within the time limit. In Moocheriel, stop Saki's singing. You must complete Tyria's Cosmosphere, level 3 before, making the Glasteria Plate. When you rest, accept Tyria. After you make the Glasteria Plate, choose to save Tyria.

 

Tyria's True Ending: None of the Reyvateils can have three hearts. You must defeat MYU within the time limit. In Moocheriel, stop Saki's singing. You must complete Tyria's Cosmosphere, level 3, before making the Glasteria Plate. When you rest, accept Tyria. After you make the Glasteria Plate, choose to save the world.

 

Cocona's Ending: None of the Reyvateils can have three hearts. You must defeat MYU within the time limit. In Moocheriel, stop Saki's singing. Do not touch Tyria's level 3 Cosmosphere. Do not touch Saki's nor Finnel's level 8 Cosmosphere.

Step 4: Tyria's Normal and True Ending.

 

Load the clear data you just saved and start again from Phase 2. This time, do NOT give all the hearts to the same Reyvateil. One Reyvateil should have two hearts and the other just one.

 

Unless I'm mistaken, instead of reloading the clear Data from Phase 2, it would be better to load a save just before the 3rd choice (Phase 3 - Tower Block A) of Tyria's or Saki's True Route Playthrough and to pick the other Reyvateil. It would save a lot of time.

You're right. It is better to do this. I have updated the road map to include this. The only problem is that you have to play this game for 100 hours. The system data file does save the amount of time you have played, so it is not necessary to have a save file read 100 hours, just play 100 hours across all files. Thanks for writing this.

Unlocked 100% of Saki's CS.

 

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!

 

Before you proceed to Phase 4, ideally before the MYU fight in Phase 3 (although you can do it immediately afterwards), you must dive into Saki's level 7 Cosmosphere. There is a missable event here that disappears once you reach Phase 4 (...) To get the third talk topic, you must synthesize a tranquility (the item unsynthesized will appear as ?Injector?). This recipe is found in Lymph Vessel, where you first met Tyria and Filament purges (the event back in Phase 2). You must get this recipe before you fight MYU or this section will get blocked off. Synthesize this item and rest afterwards. This will give you the three required talk topics to dive into level 7.

 

I don't know if it's worth mentionning but maybe you should say that the ?Injector? must be CREATED before going to the Harvestasha Module (the event that directly follows the MYU fight) because after that cut-scene you lose Finnel who's required to create it and she only comes back at Phase 4. I'm saying this because I made that mistake (it was before you posted your guide) :|

 

Well all in all I'd say that the best thing to do to avoid any confusion is to just complete Saki's mid-7 CS before fighting MYU.

You can even streamline playthroughs a little more to minimize phase 4 replays to two full replays. Do the first parts as usual (in my case, 3 hearts to Finnel, get Bad, Normal, and True endings, then load clear data at phase 2 and get back up to the point before the last heart point giving the other two to Saki). Keep this save. Give the third heart point to Saki and get the normal end (you'll get the Saki Romantic Scene 2 along the way) in less than an hour. Then reload the save and give the heart to Finnel, giving you a 2:1 split. Play through to right before making the plate, but don't touch Tyria's CS3 or CS8 for the other two. Keep this save. From here, you can get the other four endings pretty quickly. Do Saki's CS8 and get the confession (finishing it for 100%) and beat the game. Reload, get Tyria's confession, save, get the normal and true endings. Reload the initial save and get Cocona's ending.

 

In theory you can even do Phase 4 once (start NG+ from Phase 2 after Finnel's Normal ending without doing Phase 4 for her true ending at all, and doing all five endings using the method above), but I think it'll be more of a pain that way since you won't be able to fly through the stuff as quickly with that clear data and I'm not sure I'd want all that juggling on my first playthrough.

Thanks a lot, Germain!

Say, do the CS percentage carries over to NG+? )))

 

Yes and no. You have to complete the CS in one playthrough. When you use New Game+, you can choose where you start. If you start from the beginning, nothing carries over (CS completion for each Reyvateil will be at 0%) except for EXP, money and DP. If you start from later in the game, you carry over whatever you had at the point of the game. For example, let's say you a New Game+ on Phase 2. If by the start of Phase 2 on the previous playthrough, you have only completed 20% of Saki's, the 20% will carry over and you can get the rest of the 80% on that playthrough to get the 100% CS completion trophy.

Return to Blue Heaven Canyon in Phase 4, as there will be two more chests past the area where you saved Finnel in Phase 1.

 

We're talking the caves in the Blue Heaven Trail in Phase 4? There seems to be a path, but a large crystal is blocking that path, other than that I can't really find where else they'd be in that area.

It's near the location where you saved Finnel in Phase 1. After the save point, you head south and you would go down some steps. There will be some extra ledges that you have to drop down to get two new chests. Hope that helps.

do you need to get every talk topic for each 100% chromosphere? I'm on finnel's route, but I wanted to get that missable event in Saki's level 7, but it won't let me in, and I just beat myuu. So, for my Saki route, about how much talk topics need to be completed--in other words, should I start from the beginning and use a walkthrough, or just start at phase II and use a walkthrough for these topics? Thanks

 

Edit: reread the guide. So I can't enter until phase four, but my previous question still remains. Is 100% talk topic necessarily for 100% chromosphere?

No you don't need every single talk topic for the Cosmosphere 100%. You just need to see 100% of the events of the Cosmosphere. But yet I have 100% talk topics for Saki, and 98% for Finnel and Tyria.
