Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God features a curry-loving girl who finds herself on a quest to save her favorite curry shop from shutting down. Along her journey she meets some rather bizarre new friends and foes who add some charm into this rather light-hearted story.
This is a roguelike RPG and in it you always start at level 1 for every dungeon and lose your money and inventory when you die, fortunately your equipped items are kept but the dungeons have several enemies who can remove your equipment and destroy your items at will so caution must be used.
This will probably be the easiest roguelike Platinum on the Vita and is a good introduction to the genre. The only real hurdle is luck and time. A good approach to this trophy list will save you many, many hours. See here for some tips that will help you: LINK.
Step 1: Watch the opening and clear the intro dungeon
Once the game starts watch the intro and start a new game. Go through the tutorial dungeon and you will earn a few trophies when you're done. After this you'll get:
It's There For A Reason!
I Wonder What's in Here
Step 2: Preliminary equipment upgrading (optional)
After the prologue you'll be able to visit the first real dungeon, the Rock Hard Caverns. Instead of beating it, however, you'll want to run it a few times and pick up equipment and in particularly those with a + or -. When you get to floor 9, exit the dungeon and run it again.
The reason for this is Kuu always gets the Crafting Smarts skill when you visit the dungeon as long as you haven't killed the boss yet. This allows you to synthesize equipment without cost and get a head start on the rest of the game. Once you beat the dungeon's boss, Kuu will start getting randomized skills so it's best to abuse this while the option is still available.
What you'll want to do is get all equipments with + or - on them and use Kuu's Crafting Smarts to combine all the + and - gear you have into stronger gear. When you get around +10 for your desired equipment, you can go ahead and progress the story. I recommend using swords for the rest of the game. After this, you'll get:
Alert the Fashion Police!
It's Almost Presentable
Hey, It's a Start
It's FAR from over!
I Made It Myself!
Step 3: Beat the game
Once you have your upgraded sword and shield you can now proceed to beat the game. Don’t rush to the next floor and explore the whole floor before advancing, and open every chest you come across, particularly the white ones. You'll want to kill most of the enemies you come across and loot the various items scattered in the dungeon floors. Do all this and you should have no issues taking on the bosses. If you happen to find Attack Orbs and Secret Scrolls, hang on to them and craft one of each into your gear. They will make everything trivial.
While traversing the dungeons, stockpile equipment as you'll need one of every weapon and shield eventually so this is a good time to get those. If inventory space is starting to become an issue, prioritize getting + and - gear over regular gear. You'll also want to acquire as many Change Scrolls, Divine Scrolls and Magic Compacts as you can find. If you find any ID scrolls, keep those as well as you'll need at least 3. Everything else is really up to you. After this you'll get:
But Can You Eat It?
Thou SHALT Commit Laundry!
Really, Was that so Difficult?
Wizard About Town
It Wasn't THAT Hard...
Sick Burn, Dude...
Wow, What a Dump...
Not Much of a Threat...
Step 4: Sky Palace run 1 - Upgrading swords and shields
After beating the main story, you'll unlock the Extra Chapter. This grants you access to the Sacred Sky Palace, the longest dungeon in the game. It has a whopping 256 floors and the "hardest" boss awaits at the end. Along the way you'll face off against some old bosses until floor 100, then it's basically the same thing until floor 256. Instead of rushing to the final floor, you'll want to use this as an opportunity to upgrade your equipment.
Fill your inventory with junk items like Potions and enter the Sky Palace. Feed them all to Kuu and watch what skills he learns. You'll want to get at least Crafting Smarts before you start the actual run. If he doesn't learn Crafting Smarts, make a temp save but do not load it when you get to the title screen. Instead, select Continue and load that save as it will put you back before you entered the dungeon with all your stuff intact. The good news is each one of these resets will also count towards the Greetings, Dr Jones! trophy.
When you finally start the run, get all the swords and shields you find and make sure you don't have any duplicates. All items will be unidentified and some might be cursed but there's a trick to figure out which ones are cursed. Simply attempt to craft an item and if the item doesn’t show up for crafting then it's cursed. What you'll want to do is equip all non-cursed items to identify them, they'll stay that way for the remainder of the run.
Just keep running the dungeon like usual and when your equipment reaches tier 5, craft that onto a new sword/shield you'll want to upgrade and keep going. Once you reach floor 80+, you can seriously start upgrading your stuff. Make sure to have curry active for each floor and you'll upgrade items easily just by killing everything.
Hang on to any + or - equipment that you find as well and if you think you'll have no trouble finding that item again, combine them to work towards the +99/-99 trophies.
Make sure to reach the boss at the very end of this whole thing and beat it. You'll need the entry for the Bookworm trophy. After this you'll get:
Who's the Bwave Monster H...Killer...
Aren't WE Bloodthirsty?!
I am Woman, Hear Me ROAR!
Um, I have an invite...
Step 5: Sky Palace run 2 - Upgrading staves
After your first run of the Sky Palace, you should have upgraded almost all the swords and shields. The next step is upgrading staves. Staves are more tedious to upgrade as they don't boost ATK and spells have limited uses, what you'll want to do is craft as many ATK+ seals onto your shield and work from there. Hopefully you won't have many shields left to upgrade as you'll want to use the same tier 5 shield for the entire run.
It's basically the same thing as your first Palace run except you're now focusing on staves and won't be switching shields. If possible craft an Attack Orb onto a staff you're upgrading for ATK +10 and when upgrading a new staff, get it to Tier 2 first before crafting the previous staff you were upgrading onto it to pass the ATK+10 seal on. After this you'll get:
Gosh, What a Witch!
For the HOARD(ing)!
Step 6: Theater item farming
Next you'll want to run the story dungeons again looking for any theater items you're missing, These items appear only on specific floors of specific dungeons and are found in white chests. While running these dungeons, keep an eye out for any equipment you're missing and make sure to grab a copy.
Hopefully by this time you'll have any equipment you haven't upgraded yet sitting in your inventory. Now is the time to take one of each and go through the Sky Palace one last time to upgrade them.
This time you want to rush to floor 80+ and start upgrading gears there, since you'll have all of what you need in your inventory now. After this you'll get:
Only the Finest
Let's Play Depreciation!
Step 8: Cleanup
At this point you most likely only have the trophy for dying 50 items plus all items and spells left to go. If you've been following the guidelines so far, you should be well-prepared to finish up the other trophies in a few hours. Check the respective trophy requirements and finish them off to claim your Platinum. After this you'll get:
Down for the Count
Greetings, Dr. Jones!
