Section 2. Introduction
Vandal Hearts: Flames of Judgment is a Strategy Turn Based RPG. Unlike most RPG's, there is no leveling system in place. Characters improve their skills and stats by performing actions (attacking, casting, etc). The game itself is very short (for a RPG) and very easy. The campaign lasts about 6 hours if you take your time. While most of the game is easy, the final boss fight will pose a challenge until you get a hold of the mechanics of it. Most of the trophies can be obtained as you play through the game, while only a few require a bit of effort.
Section 3. Walkthrough
The way the trophies are setup would have you thinking you need to play through the entire game twice, but that isn't the case. If you choose the right choices and save at the proper location you'll only need to do a small portion of a second playthrough. All the pertinent information for getting a 1+ playthrough is under the Serenity and Fury trophy.
Section 3.1.0 - First Playthrough
Start the game and as you play the game you'll manage most of the trophies. As you progress through the campaign; alternate your decisions between the two girls (Luce and Altyria) and be sure you find all extra battlegrounds and complete them before you leave Port of Chai-Haim. Before you go further, you should work on any non-story related trophies you don't have. The last optional battleground cannot be accessed until you leave Chai-Haim but make an alternate save before you leave Chai-Haim.
Once you leave Chai-Haim there will only be a handful of battles left. Play through the game and keep selecting the choices of one girl and ignore the other. Once you reach the end of the game you should earn one of two possible ending trophies; it depends which girl has had more favorable choices.
Champion of Sostegaria or Hero of Sostergaria
Section 3.1.1 - Second Ending
Take notice of which ending you received and then reload your pre-Chai-Haim save. Go ahead and leave Chai-Haim again but make choices towards the other girl in your party (if you got the Altyria ending, choose Luce and vice versa). Play through the end of the game again and you should get your two final trophies.
Champion of Sostegaria or Hero of Sostegaria
Serenity and Fury
Section 3.2.0 - Second Playthrough
If you feel obligated to play the game again or made a mistake while attempting the 1.5 playthrough method, choose decisions that favor the other girl. If you missed out on any of the optional trophies, this is the time you should get them.
