White Knight Chronicles is a traditional style RPG with experience levelling and complete customization of the characters, with the ability to create your own Avatar to add to the group to enable you to become fully immersed in the game. The game was originally designed to have an MMORPG aspect on top of the single player storyline to allow your avatar to develop even further and take on the world in a slightly more literal sense. However with the servers shutting down on the 18th of June this year, it is unlikely that we will see any more online aspects to this game.
Step 1: Play the game
You will want to play the game and focus only on that. There is no need to worry about anything else at the moment.
Step 2: Second playthrough
Play the game again, but this time focus on collecting items. You can get about 4 or 5 sets of armour at GR7 and GR8 level which you will find very useful later. This can be done in about 4 hours if you rush through the game skipping cutscenes and not exploring.

Step 3: Build Guild Rank (GR)
You will start off at Guild Rank 1 and not gain any ranks from completing the story. The story will only build your level, however this is needed to start working on Guild rank. At the start you will just want to complete quests that you can access. As you start progressing to GR4 or 5 begin to go back to the older quests and try to complete them with an S rank. S ranks are gotten by completing the mode as fast as you can, by killing lots of enemies, or by killing the hardest enemies there are available. Use neoseeker to find the specific quest and it will tell you how to S rank that quest. If you struggle on S Ranking a quest, move on and come back when you're a higher rank.
You want to get to GR12 as soon as possible but you need to focus on other trophies too. Best Served Cold 2 is best for exp although until GR10 you will struggle to solo this (although I'll give you tips later). But you want to focus on item quests just as equally. Pick bosses that have rare items you need and complete those quests too. You do not need S ranks on these quests although obviously completing each quest once with an S rank is needed so try to do that as best you can. If you struggle with one quest, don't worry.
For S ranks, remember that the blue (bonus) quests are harder than the yellow (standard) to s rank, even if they are the same guild rank. However a bonus quest at GR7 is usually easier than a standard quest at GR10. Focus some energy on S ranks but you won't get the trophy till much later.
Step 4: Gold Star
You will need to get the rebirth trophy at GR10. (Master all 8 skills). I suggest you use sprog cleaning 2 once you've rebirthed to get from level 35 to 50 in about 2 hours. You will also get a substantial amount of money for doing this. Make sure you plan to finish with the skills you will wish to use for the rest of the game.
Step 5: Gold Medal
To get this to work in the same way as it did when you were working towards GR10: Complete quests you need, along with quests you have found to be quick, in order to rank up. This is the best way to get guild rank, and as you need items it is probably easier to go for them now rather than after you reach GR12. Only bind what you need, such as armor. Don't spend your money yet as it'll make the Gold Coin Purse trophy much harder.
Step 6: Perfectionist's Badge
You probably won't get all 50 S-Ranks till you're at least GR12, depending on if you've played the game online much before the server shut down. This will be quite hard to do without a party behind you for support, however with enough practice, character building, and learning the missions, a lot of them are fairly easy to run through quickly.
Step 7: Item Maniac
Items/materials. You should have a lot of items now but any that you don't have but need for binding you'll have to go out and get. Check the checklists to see what you need to get (FAQ again or download the table) and go specifically for those items. As you don't need GR anymore you don't have to complete the quest unless the items you need are only from completing the quests or bosses. For example you can start the quest, get various flowers or ores found at the beginning and quit out. Other materials will need to be gotten by kills.
Step 8: Gold Coin Purse
Money. Only after doing all of this should you go for money. Try not to bind much before getting this trophy since it's hard enough as it is. To get money you want to complete BSC3 repetitively. You get about 25000 gilda a run, so repeat till you have about 6 million total. After you have this, make a second save to load from for binding and sell all your equipment. You should be over the 10 million mark. If not, reload the save file that has your equipment and keep going for however much you were off by.
Step 9: Phibianacci's Diamond
Binding. This should be the only set of trophies left now, or you may still have to collect Equipment Maniac (Don't worry if you do, it should come along the way). You need about 4 million gold to complete it so you should have plenty, plus the items you have. If you're missing items, you can buy them if you don't have enough or complete the quests where they are found, or skip the item if you really want to although it is advised you stick to the easy items as the harder ones get expensive fast. The only hard items you should have to bind are those you used previously.
