Tips and Tricks
Optimal Ending Guide
Welcome to Atelier Totori Plus ~The Adventurer of Arland~. Atelier Totori Plus is a ported version of the game's PS3 counterpart, and includes a few extras such as extra characters to recruit and a new end-game dungeon full of new bosses, Orthogalaxen.
Trophy-wise, there's isn't a great deal to Atelier Totori Plus, as long as you are aware of Character Events. The trophies are identical to the PS3 version, consisting of story, character event and ending trophies. They can all be unlocked in one playthrough, assuming you make a separate save near the end of the game before you trigger anyone's ending flag. A section concerning how to achieve the endings in one go can be found here: Optimal Ending Guide.
Lastly, there is also my Tips and Tricks section, which will provide some information that can be rather invaluable.
Step 1: Play through the Prologue and get the Bad Ending.
When you start, there isn't much for you to do. Simply sleep until the game ends in order to receive Bad Ending, then restart and work through the Prologue at your leisure.
Upon completing Step 1, you will earn:
Like the Flash
Step 2: Play through the game normally, triggering Character Events, until you defeat Evil Face.
This is where the majority of the game will be spent. Be conscious of how to trigger each character's events and all should be fine here. Also make sure you are aware of each character's 'Point of No Return' for their events, and how to avoid going beyond the 'Point of No Return'. If you go past this too early, it will make achieving all the endings in one playthrough harder than it needs to be. Make sure you are aware of the Spring Cup method detailed in the Tips and Tricks section so that you can utilise it as soon as possible to work towards 500,000 Cole.
Upon completing Step 2, you will earn:
Still a Child
Step 3: Trigger remaining Character Event and Ending flags.
By now, you should have most things completed. You may have a few events left to do or have a few events left to trigger, in which case now is the time to do so. Your aim for this step is to do the following:
- Get Mimi to Adventurer Level 49.
- Get Gino to Adventurer Level 24.
- Get Alchemy Level 50 (do not synthesise in Atelier Rorona once you do).
- Get Adventurer Level 50.
- Complete Iksel's Cooking Contest quest.
- Complete Gerhard's Beer Hunting quest.
- Complete all Character Events before 'Point of No Return'.
- Have at least one Chim eat nine large pies.
- Have all Chims eat a total of 34 or less large pies.
- Have close to or just over 500,000 Cole.
You'll also want to participate in the Fishing Festival as per Peter's request if you haven't done so already. Once all this is done, make a new save file, and don't save over it. Having this save around Year 6, 1/1 is best - plenty of time to complete the necessary requirements, but close enough so it doesn't take too long to sleep through til the end. This save file will be used to achieve all the endings.
Upon completing Step 3, you will earn:
Step 4: Trigger the Endings.
Using the save file you made in Step 3, simply earn each ending one at a time. Please refer to the Optimal Ending Guide on how to do this.
Upon completing Step 4, you will earn:
A New Journey
