Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist is a card game simulator developed and released by Konami. It's also the very first Yu-Gi-Oh! video game available for the PS4. Players can relive the duels against Yu-Gi-Oh! characters from the past and present from the original Yu-Gi-Oh! series up to Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL. You can also compete against other players online with your custom deck or challenge other players in Battle Pack Draft and Sealed Play Duels.

Trophy wise, if you're experienced with Yu-Gi-Oh! and are up-to-date with the current rules as of the April 1st, 2016 Banlist rulings, this game should be easy for you. For newcomers who are new to the series and TCG (Trading Card Game), it'll be a simple task of learning how to play the game. Thankfully, the Yu-Gi-Oh! Series has always included a step by step Tutorial in all their video games. Taking the time to read or watch the Tutorial videos will enable you to learn how to play in no time at all.

Before we begin with the main Trophy Guide and Roadmap, this game is about two players Dueling each other using a variety of Monsters, Spells, and Trap Cards to defeat their opponents and be the first Duelist to drop the other's Life Points down to zero. It's highly important that you learn or know how to play the game correctly before proceeding. You should read the Official Rulebook before playing, especially if you're new to the game. Even if you're a veteran player there have been many changes over the last few years that dramatically changed the game's gameplay. By understanding these rules, you'll be making the best use of your cards and making less misplays. Click here for the Official Rulebook version 8.0.

In Game Tutorials: All Tutorial duels and in game Tutorial Videos do not unlock trophies and they also don't count towards any trophies' unlocking.

Pre-Made Structure Decks: These are pre-made Decks for new players to get you started with the game. There are a total of 5 Structure Decks and they can make obtaining certain trophies much easier:

  • Basic Structure Deck
  • Fusion Structure Deck
  • Synchro Structure Deck
  • Xyz Structure Deck
  • Pendulum Structure Deck

DLC Add-Ons: DLC Add-Ons aren't needed in order to get 100%. They're completely optional and only give you pre-constructed decks and new additional duels in the Campaign and Challenge Modes.

Autoskip Effect Dialog Prompts: These are found in the "Help & Options" menu under "Settings". What they do is make the gameplay less annoying with prompts or turn the settings into Pro. Personally, I recommend just playing on "Simple".

  • Default: Computer warns you for all prompts. Hold to auto-skip prompts. Press to check field.
  • Pro: Computer doesn't warn you at all about prompts. Hold to show prompts. Press to check field.
  • Simple: Computer decides when to auto-skip. Hold to show prompts. Press to check field.

Traditional Format: Traditional Format is basically players using "Forbidden" cards. The game allows you to use Forbidden cards in Single Player Modes only, but you must use Advanced Format in the Multiplayer Modes. Advanced Format is where you can only use cards that are not on the current Banlist which is the April 1st, 2016 Banlist for this game.

How to get Cards Fast: I could type an essay about this, but there is no need when this video pretty much explains everything perfectly about how to obtain cards in the most efficient ways possible.

Step 1: Complete Each Yu-Gi-Oh! Series and Reverse Duel All the Series Characters + Misc. Trophies

This is the first step where you’ll need to complete the following Series Campaigns:

  • Yu-Gi-Oh!
  • Yu-Gi-Oh! GX
  • Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s
  • Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL
  • Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V

You can complete the Campaigns in any order that you wish. While dueling you'll be winning new cards, unlocking new Deck Recipes, Reverse Duels, Deck Avatars, and earning Victory Duel Points. All of these things are need for 100% completion. The Campaign Story Duels can all be completed with either the following:

  • Story Decks - Decks used by the series characters. Also known as historic decks
  • User Decks - Your own custom made deck.

Either option will get the job done, but it's better to use your own Custom Deck Recipe because you'll win duels much faster. Build your favorite deck or strengthen your deck(s) as you win duels. Reverse Duels are Duels where you duel against the main protagonist by pressing the button when you see this symbol:


- Indicates a Reverse duel is now available.

Reverse Duels are necessary because they'll unlock the remaining Avatars and Challenge Duelists that you're still missing. While on this step you should also be going after the miscellaneous trophies. These trophies are things that happen while you're dueling and are cumulative. These things include performing a Tribute/Fusion/Xyz/Synchro/Pendulum Summon, dealing a certain amount of Direct/Effect/Reflective Damage, Chaining 100 times, building 5 custom decks, and winning a duel by gathering Exodia in your hand.

Completing this step will unlock the following trophies:

King of the Games
Valedictorian
Duel Runner
High Five the Sky
Sacrifice
Coalesce
Ultimate Form
Tuned in
Chronomancer
Damage Dealer
Effect Elitist
Reflect Rager
Chain Champion
The Duelist Begins
Curator
Forbidden One
Master Collector



Step 2: Win Against All Duelist Challenges

Duelist Challenges are simply an elite historic version of Yu-Gi-Oh! duelists. For example, these characters were known to use an old school themed machine/dinosaur/insect deck, but now they've been updated to modern standards:

  • Bandit Keith - Now uses a Pendulum Scrap Deck
  • Rex Raptor - Now uses an Evolsaur archetype Deck
  • Weevil Underwood - Now uses an Inzektor archetype Deck

This step is still very easy if you're using your own Custom Build Deck(s). The A.I. doesn't completely play like a human being, but sometimes they can be very cheap and easily defeat you because the A.I. Duelist had a very good starting Hand. This step will be the most time consuming step that you'll be doing. If you need to strengthen your deck more, then do so by Surrendering duels to obtain more Victory Points in order to buy more cards from the Card Shop. Surrendering in a duel simply means to forfeit a Duel to the opponent, allowing them to automatically win the Duel.

Completing this step will unlock the following trophy:

Master Duelist


Step 3: Multiplayer and Battle Pack Modes

This step is pretty basic and all you need to do is complete the 2 online Multiplayer trophies and win 1 duel in a Battle Pack. In Multiplayer you simply need to win 1 Ranked and 1 Unranked Duel. It's as simple as that and can even be boosted by having your boosting partner Surrender the duel. Battle Pack is a new feature that enables you to play in either Sealed or Draft Play against the A.I. or against other players online. This step will take you no more than a few minutes to complete and if you need a boosting partner, then you can use the Trophy Boosting Thread to find a partner.

Completing this step will unlock the following trophies:

Casual Duelist
Playing For Real
Battle Tested

  • Perform a Tribute Summon

    Potentially Glitched: There have been a few reports that this trophy isn't unlocking after performing a successful Tribute Summon. If this happens to you, I recommend that you backup your current save file on a USB or Cloud Storage. Then delete the entire game and the save files and reinstall it again to attempt the trophy.

    For this trophy, you need to perform a Tribute Summon. This trophy won't unlock from a tutorial duel from the Single Player Campaigns, however, it can be unlocked by playing either the Single Player Campaigns, Multiplayer and Duelist Challenges Modes.

    What's a Tribute Summon?

    A Tribute Summon is a form of Normal Summoning that involves Summoning a Monster Card of Level 5 or higher from your hand to the field. As with a "Normal Summon", a Tribute Summon can only be done once per a turn. In order to Summon a monster like this, you have to send (Tribute) a Monster Card(s) already on your side of the Field to the Graveyard. When you're Tribute Summoning a monster of Level 5 or Level 6, you must offer 1 Monster Card as a Tribute. When you're Tribute Summoning a monster of Level 7 or higher, you must offer 2 Monster Cards as a Tribute.

    Additionally, a Tribute Set can also unlock the trophy. Tribute Set is the act of Normal Setting a Level 5 or higher monster by Tributing another Monster(s) you control on your side of the Field to the Graveyard.

  • Perform a Fusion Summon

     

    For this trophy, you need to perform a Fusion Summon. This trophy won't unlock from a tutorial duel from the Single Player Campaigns, however, it can be unlocked by playing either the Single Player Campaigns, Multiplayer and Duelist Challenges Modes.

    What's a Fusion Summon?

    A Fusion Summon is the Summon of a Fusion Monster from the Extra Deck. This type of summoning is treated as a "Special Summoning". In order to "Fusion Summon" a Monster, you'll need the Fusion Materials (Monster Card(s)) specified in the card text of the card you wish to Summon, along with the use of a "Polymerization" Spell Card or any other card effects that allow Fusion Summons. Both of these things need to be in your Hand or your side of the Field. When you successfully Fusion Summon a Monster Card, the Fusion Material used, along with the "Polymerization" Spell Card or any other card effects, will be sent to the Graveyard.
     

    Below is a visual example of how to Fusion Summon:


    Polymerization + A Fusion Material Monster + A Fusion Material Monster = A Fusion Summon

  • Perform an Xyz Summon

     

    For this trophy, you need to perform a Xyz Summon. This trophy won't unlock from a tutorial duel from the Single Player Campaigns, however, it can be unlocked by playing either the Single Player Campaigns, Multiplayer and Duelist Challenges Modes.

    What's an Xyz Summon?

    An Xyz Summon is the Summon of an Xyz Monster Card from the Extra Deck. This is a gameplay mechanic introduced in the Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL series. This type of summoning is treated in the same way as a "Special Summon". In order to perform an Xyz Summon, you need a number of Face-up Monsters to be used as an Xyz Material. The number of Xyz Materials and their required Level will vary between the monsters. It should be noted that Xyz Monsters cannot be used as an Xyz Material. Once an Xyz Monster has been successfully summoned, the Xyz Materials used to summon it will be stacked and placed underneath the Xyz Monster. Additionally, the Level of an Xyz Monster is called a "Rank" as Xyz Monsters don't have Levels.
     

    Below you can see a visual example of how to Xyz Summon:


    A Level 4 monster + A Level 4 monster = A Rank 4 Xyz Monster, with two Xyz Materials


    Xyz Summon - Yu-Gi-Oh! Wikia

  • Perform a Synchro Summon

     

    For this trophy, you need to perform a Synchro Summon. This trophy won't unlock from a tutorial duel from the Single Player Campaigns, however, it can be unlocked by playing either the Single Player Campaigns, Multiplayer and Duelist Challenges Modes.

    What's a Synchro Summon?

    A Synchro Summon is the Summon of a Synchro Monster Card from the Extra Deck. This is a gameplay mechanic introduced in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's series. This type of summoning is treated in the same way as a "Special Summon". In order to perform a Synchro Summon, the total levels of a Face-up Tuner monster on your side of the Field and another one or more monsters have to be equal. You can only use one Tuner monster, but there can be any number of other monsters. By releasing these monsters, you can summon a Synchro Monster that has the same level as the total level of the released monsters. It should be noted that Xyz Monsters cannot be used as Synchro Materials, as they do not have Levels, but Ranks instead.

    Additionally, there are a few cards like "Formula Synchron" that allow the player to Synchro Summon during the opponent's Main Phase. And some cards (such as "Malefic Parallel Gear") can use non-Tuner monsters from the hand to Synchro Summon a monster.

     

    Below you can see a visual example of how to summon a Synchro Monster:


    A Level 2 Tuner monster + A Level 5 non-Tuner monster = A Level 7 Synchro Monster

  • Perform a Pendulum Summon

     

    For this trophy, you need to perform a Pendulum Summon. This trophy won't unlock from a tutorial duel from the Single Player Campaigns, however, it can be unlocked by playing either the Single Player Campaigns, Multiplayer and Duelist Challenges Modes.

    What's a Pendulum Summon?

    A Pendulum Summon is a new method of "Special Summon" which was introduced in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V. Basically, a Pendulum Summon allows the player to Summon multiple high-Level monsters simultaneously on the Field. These monsters can come from your Hand or Extra Deck as long their Levels are in-between the Pendulum Scales. The Pendulum Scales are on the sides of your two Pendulum Monster Cards. Whenever your Pendulum Monster Cards on the Field (regardless of which zone it is in, or even if it is a monster or not) would be sent to the Graveyard, they're placed Face-up in your Extra Deck instead. You can Pendulum Summon it back to the Field later next turn. You can only Pendulum Summon once per a turn, during your Main Phase.

    Pendulum Summoning can be quite difficult to understand if you're not fully familiar with the concept. With that in mind, it's best if you watched the official video on how to Pendulum Summon from the Official Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME YouTube channel.

    Additional information about the Pendulum Zones, Pendulum Monsters, Pendulum Scale, and Pendulum Summon:

    Pendulum Zones:

    • These are the two Pendulum Zones where Pendulum Monster is placed on the field.
    • The left Pendulum Zone, colored blue with a blue Pendulum Scale jewel, is located in between the Field Zone and the Extra Deck Zone.
    • The right Pendulum Zone, colored red with a red Pendulum Scale jewel, is located in between the Graveyard Zone and the Deck Zone.
    • A Pendulum Monster can be activated as a Spell Card in a Pendulum Zone, its Pendulum Effects are applied rather than its Monster Effects.
    • You cannot set Pendulum Monsters in the Pendulum Zones.

    Pendulum Monsters:

    • Can be Summoned like a Monster or activated in a Pendulum Zone as a spell that remains on the field.
    • Pendulum Monsters effects differ depending on whether they are a spell of monster at the time.
    • Are placed Face-up in the Extra Deck when destroyed while on the Field.
    • Have a Blue Pendulum Number (left) and a Red Pendulum Number (right).

    Pendulum Scale:

    • These are set of indicators unique to Pendulum Monsters.
    • All Pendulum Monsters have two Pendulum Scale values, signified by the blue symbol and the red symbol.
    • Pendulum Scales are used in Pendulum Summoning.
    • Currently in the OCG/TCG a Monster's original Pendulum Scale may range from 1 to 10.

    Pendulum Summons:

    • Require a Pendulum Monster in each of your two Pendulum Zones.
    • Let you Special Summon any number of monsters from your Hand and/or Monsters that are Face-up in your Extra Deck whose levels are exactly between the Blue Number of your left Pendulum Monster and Red Number of your right Pendulum Monster.
    • This is a Special Summon and all Monsters are Summoned simultaneously.

  • Win an unranked multiplayer match (duel)

    Potentially Glitched: There have been a few reports that this trophy isn't unlocking after winning your first unranked multiplayer match (duel). If this happens to you, I recommend that you close and restart the game application, and then win another unranked match. This should resolve the problem and the trophy should unlock as intended.

    For this trophy, you must win an unranked multiplayer match (duel). This can only be done in Multiplayer, "Player Match", where you can play a duel with another PSN player or friend. Since this is online you should know that when playing online you can only use decks that are compatible with the April 1st, 2016 Banlist. You can do this trophy legit as online is very active, or you can boost it. A thing to keep in mind though is if an opponent rage quits against you, then you will not get the credit for that win.

    To prevent an opponent from rage quitting so you can get the win as fast as possible. Use the following settings in "Create Match":

    • Match Settings: Single
    • LP: 2000
    • Time Limit: 30 Seconds

    That way all you have to do it take 2000 of their Life Points in order to win the duel or if they take too long and waste their 30 seconds, then they will lose automatically while you still get credit for the win.

    If you're boosting this trophy, then you simply "Create Match" and invite your boosting partner into the lobby. Then they Surrender the duel giving you a win automatically. This method only takes a few seconds of your time to do. If you need a boosting partner, please use the Trophy Boosting Thread.

  • Win a ranked multiplayer match (duel)

    For this trophy, you must win a ranked multiplayer match (duel). This can only be done in Multiplayer, "Ranked Match", where you can compete for positions on the leaderboards with players from around the world.

You can do this trophy legit as online is very activate or you can boost it. A thing to keep in mind though is if an opponent rage quits against you, then you will not get the credit for that win.

    A Ranked Multiplayer Duel must be played with the following default settings:

    • Match Settings: Single
    • LP: 8000
    • Time Limit: 3 minutes

    I suggest using your best April 1st, 2016 Banlist deck when playing online against other players to make things much easier for you. You must take all 8000 of your opponent's Life Points in order to win. Plus, you only have 3 minutes for each turn to make your plays. Going over that time limit will end up resulting in an automatic loss.

    Additionally, you can also boost this trophy by creating a "Create Match" and then have your partner quickly search for the lobby by using the "Find Match" option. If you guys timed it correctly, then it's possible that you'll both end up in the exact same lobby together. Afterwards, simply have your boosting partner Surrender the Duel so you can win automatically. If you need a boosting partner, please use the Trophy Boosting Thread.

  • Win a Battle Pack match (duel)

    For this trophy, you must win a Battle Pack match (duel). From the main menu, select "Battle Pack", where you can play using a temporary deck made from Battle Packs. In this mode you can select the following two categories:

    1. Sealed Play: Your deck is made instantly from 10 five-card Battle Packs.
    2. Draft Play: Draft 45 cards in 3 rounds of pack opening.

    Either category option will work because your deck will be completely random and temporary. All you need to do is win 1 duel for the trophy to unlock. You get a total of 5 duels with your 2000 Victory Points that you spent on making your deck. The best thing that I can recommend is that you take the time to read over your cards before the duel begins, that way you'll know what your deck is capable of doing.

    A Battle Pack Duel must be played with the following default settings:

    • LP: 8000
    • Time Limit: No time limit

    Additionally, it should be noted this can be done either in Single Player or Online. In other words, you can technically boost this trophy if you wish to do so. If you need a boosting partner, please use the Trophy Boosting Thread.

    If you're boosting, use the following settings in the Online "Create Match":

    • LP: 2000
    • Time Limit: 30 Seconds
  • Unlock all avatars

    For this trophy, you'll need to unlock all avatars in the game. Avatars are duelist Avatar pictures that represent you for both Single Player and Multiplayer. Avatars can be assigned to your User Decks. There are a total of 100 avatars which are unlocked by doing the following two things:

    1. Completing all 5 Campaign Series from the original Yu-Gi-Oh! to Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V series.
    2. Reverse Duel all Campaign Series from the original Yu-Gi-Oh! to Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL series.

    Doing the above will naturally unlock the trophy. It's recommended that you use your best custom deck(s) while going for this trophy. It's only time consuming and nothing difficulty at all as it requires many duels along the way to obtain.

    In order to view all your current avatars, you can do the following:

    1. From the main menu select "Deck Edit"
    2. From here, select any deck that you already have build

  • Win All Duelist Challenges

    For this trophy, you'll need to play against and defeat elite versions of all historic duelists throughout the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise. There are a total of 98 duelists that you'll need to defeat in a duel, excluding IN4-M8, Gong Strong and DLC duelists. From the main menu screen, enter Single Player and then select "Duelist Challenges". Here you can choose from the original Yu-Gi-Oh! series to Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V series. Each duelist has had their decks buffed up to the modern April 1st, 2016 Banlist standards. This isn't really difficult at all especially if you're using a good deck build or are an expert Yu-Gi-Oh! player, however, this trophy is very time consuming though. In order to unlock the 98 duelists in the Duelist Challenges series, you'll need to do the following two things:

    1. Completing all 5 Campaign Series from the original Yu-Gi-Oh! to Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V series.
    2. Reverse Duel all Campaign Series from the original Yu-Gi-Oh! to Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL series.

    While in the Duelist Challenges you'll notice icons that means the following:

    ~ A new challenger that you haven't dueled yet.
    ~ You defeated this Duelist at least once before.
    ~ You lost to the Duelist and still need to defeat them for it to count towards the trophy's unlocking.

    Personally, I recommend using your best deck build(s) while playing through this mode. I used Inzektors, Qliphort and Stardust Dragon Assault because I know how to use them to their full potential and perform OTKs with them. If you're wondering what an OTK stands for it means One Turn Kill, meaning a player wins in one single turn by depleting their opponent's Life Points, which is normally no more than 8000 down to 0. You need to have the right cards in your Hand/Graveyard and overall control over the duel in order to do this. If you can OTK your opponents then do it immediately without hesitation. The A.I. opponents don't play like humans, so they will most likely be unable to stop your OTKs from happening unlike a real player would be able to, so use this to your advantage whenever possible.

    Below you'll find a list of archetypes that are very good when going for this trophy. You'll need to use the Card Shop or duel opponents who have the cards you need in order to build these deck builds, but it'll be worth it. These decks can even OTK, so if you see one below that you'll like, then its best that you YouTube or Google search a deck build with them. You can also type in OTK along with their archetype names to see how to perform OTK with them if you're inexperienced with playing them.

    These are some of the best archetypes to use for fast wins:

    Here is a complete listing, in alphabetical order, of all 98 duelists that you'll need to defeat in a duel as well as their Deck Name:

  • Deal 200k in Direct Damage

     

    For this trophy, you must deal 200k in Direct Damage. This trophy is cumulative and can unlock once you dealt over 200k+ worth of Direct Damage. This trophy will naturally unlock just by playing through the Single Player Campaigns, Multiplayer and Duelist Challenges Modes. It should technically take an average of about 25 duels for it to unlock because normally there is only 8000 Life Points per a duel. Tutorials duels do not count towards this trophy's unlocking.

    What's a Direct Attack?

    A Direct Attack is when your Monster's current Attack value is subtracted from your opponent's Life Points because they didn't have no Monsters on their side of the Field to defend themselves with. This Battle Phase Damage is also called "Direct Damage" and there are Monster Cards and other card effects with the ability to attack directly.

    For a list of monsters with the ability to perform a Direct Attack, even when there is a Monster on the opponent's side of the Field. Click here for Direct Attack Monsters and here for other cards that allow Direct Attacks.

  • Deal 100k in Effect Damage

     

    For this trophy, you must deal 100k in Effect Damage. This trophy is cumulative and can unlock once you damaged your opponents with over 100k+ worth of Effect Damage. This trophy will naturally unlock just by playing through the Single Player Campaigns, Multiplayer and Duelist Challenges Modes as long as you're working towards dealing Effect Damage. Tutorials duels do not count towards this trophy's unlocking.

    What's an Effect Damage?

    An Effect Damage is basically any Damage you inflicted on your opponent that wasn't caused during a battle. Examples of such cards that inflict or reflect Effect Damage are cards such as the following:

    Now as you can see in the above examples, you can do this with Monsters, Spells, or Trap Cards. Personally, I just used "Gagaga Cowboy" and "Magic Cylinder" to do it. Cowboy is a Ranked 4 Monster who's very easy to Special Summon in any decks using Level 4 Monster Cards. He can deal 800 Effect Damage with his effect for the cost of 1 Martial. "Magic Cylinder" is a good trap card that will reflect your opponent's Monster Attack value back at their Life Points.

    You can get "Gagaga Cowboy" and "Magic Cylinder" in Story Duels, Duelist Challenges or the Card Shop:

    "Gagaga Cowboy"

    • Duel Yuma Tsukumo in Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL Campaign Series - Forever ZEXAL
    • Duel ZEXAL in Duelist Challenges
    • Card Shop - Yuma Tsukumo 400 Victory Points


    "Magic Cylinder"

  • Deal 50k in Reflective Damage

    For this trophy, you must deal 50k in Reflective Damage. This trophy is cumulative and can unlock once you damaged your opponents with over 50k+ worth of Reflective Damage. This trophy will naturally unlock just by playing through the Single Player Campaigns, Multiplayer and Duelist Challenges Modes as long as you're working towards dealing Reflective Damage. Tutorials duels do not count towards this trophy's unlocking.

    What's a Reflective Damage?

    Reflective Damage isn't really Yu-Gi-Oh! terminology exactly, but its Battle Damage dealt when your opponent Attacks your Defense Position Monsters. When a Monster is in Defense Position and you attack it, then the following things can happen.

    1. If the opponent's Monster has a lower DEF than your attacking Monster's ATK, then the opponent's Monster will be destroyed and sent to the Graveyard. No damage is inflicted to either player's Life Points.
    2. If the opponent's Monster has higher DEF than your attacking Monster's ATK, then neither Monster is affected in any way. The difference will, however, be deducted from your own Life Points.
    3. If both Monsters have equal values, then neither Monster is affected in any way and no damage inflicted to either player's Life Points.

    From the above examples, you'll want the 2nd option to happen just with your opponent attacking your own DEF Position Monsters. This is Reflective Damage being deducted from your opponent's Life Points and it'll count towards the trophies unlocking. With that in mind, the best way to unlock the trophy is to build a deck full of 2000 Defense Monsters and duel Weevil Underwood. I found Weevil was the best Duelist who would attack your DEF Monsters as long as they were Face-down. Keep in mind though that he'll stop attacking your DEF Monsters if they're Face-up on the Field. To prevent this from happening you can turn your Monsters into ATK Position to get rid of some of your own Monsters, so you can place more Face-down DEF Monsters in the same duel. Another way is to simply Surrender in order to get more Victory Points towards the Card Shop, either option will work fine.

    Additionally, if you want to further speed this trophy's unlocking up. Try to get 3 copies of "Stone Statue of Aztecs" and "Stronghold Guardian". These two cards combined is very deadly when your opponent attacks into your Face-down Aztecs while you have the Hand Trap of Stronghold in your hand.

    1. "Stone Statue of Aztecs" - Double any Battle Damage your opponent takes when they attack this monster.
    2. "Stronghold Guardian" - If a Defense Position monster you control is attacked, during the Damage Step, you can send this card from your hand to the Graveyard to have that monster gain 1500 DEF until the End Phase.

    For example, if a Monster with only 1000 ATK Points attacks into "Stone Statue of Aztecs" with 2000 DEF and then you activate "Stronghold Guardian" Monster Effect from your Hand. Aztecs will gain 1500 more DEF Points and double the damage your opponent will take from the new difference. In this case, it's 3500 DEF - 1000 ATK = 2500 Damage * 2 from Aztecs' Monster Effect, so total damage your opponent taken is 5000.

  • Chain 100 times

    For this trophy, you'll need to perform a Chain 100 times. This trophy is cumulative and can unlock once the 100th Chain has been stacked. This trophy will naturally unlock just by playing through the Single Player Campaigns, Multiplayer and Duelist Challenges Modes as long as you're working towards Chaining. Tutorial duels do not count towards this trophy's unlocking.

    What's a Chain?

    A Chain is a stack that determines the order of resolution of multiple cards and effects. In other words, the activation of a card in responds to another card's activation is called a Chain. When you activate a card's effect, and your opponent has a card in his/her Hand or side of the Field which can be "Chained" to that card's activation, a Chain can be formed. If your opponent decides not to Chain an activation, it is then possible for you to Chain your own card's activation. As Long as you or your opponent has cards which can be added to the Chain, they will continue to stack up. Once the Chain is no longer added to, it will be resolved in an order starting from the last card added to the Chain.

    Example of a Chain:

    1. Player A activates "Dark Hole"
    2. Player B activates "Magic Jammer" in response
    3. Player A activates "Seven Tools of the Bandit"

    In the above example, the resolution starts off with "Seven Tools of the Bandit"'s Trap Card negating effect, which negates "Magic Jammer". After that, "Magic Jammer"'s Magic Card negating effect would have normally been resolved, but since it has already been negated by the "Seven Tools of the Bandit" effect, it will not be resolved. Finally, the "Dark Hole" effect is resolved, destroying all Monsters on the Field and sending them to the Graveyard.

  • Create your first deck

    Please see Curator for more information.

  • Create 5 decks

    For this trophy, you must simply create 5 decks. Creating a deck is called a Deck Recipe and these 5 decks must be decks that are different from the Basic Structure Deck that you’re given when you start the game. One of the best things about this trophy is if you purchased and downloaded any of the DLC Add-Ons that come with pre-constructed decks; you can jump straight to the Deck Edit options to unlock this trophy quickly. However, if you don’t have any Add-On decks or purchased Booster Packs, you’ll need to win duels in the Single Player mode in order to obtain new cards.

    Some things to remember are the following:

    • The Deck must be 40 to 60 cards.
    • You can only have up to 3 copies of the same card in your Deck, Extra Deck and Side Deck combined.
    • Also, some cards are Forbidden, Limited or Semi-Limited in official tournaments. (Game uses April 1st, 2016 Banlist)
    • Try to keep your Deck close to the 40-card minimum. Having a Deck with too many cards makes it hard to draw your best cards when you need them. This Deck is called your Main Deck.
    • You can have up to 15 cards in the Extra Deck.
    • The Extra Deck can only contain Xyz Monsters, Synchro Monsters and Fusion Monsters.
    • These cards are not counted towards the 40-card minimum limit of your Main Deck.
    • You can have up to 15 cards in the Side Deck.
    • This is a separate Deck of cards you can use to change your Main Deck during a Match. After each Duel in a Match, you can swap any card from your Side Deck with a card from your Deck and/or Extra Deck to customize your strategy against your opponent.
    • The number of cards in your Side Deck before and after you swap any cards must be exactly the same.

  • Win a duel by having all Exodia cards in hand

    For this trophy, you'll need to win a duel by gathering all Exodia cards in your hand. This trophy can also be done in Multiplayer or Duelist Challenges. Exodia is also known as "Forbidden One" and was the first group of cards released that provided an automatic win. This trophy is actually quite easy because there are already a few Story Decks that have an Exodia build. They are quite decent too and will easily get the job done in unlocking the trophy, so there is no need for you to create an Exodia OTK deck when you can just use a Story Deck.

    Below you'll fine a list of all Story Decks that has Exodia:

    Yami Yugi

    • Deck Name: Exodia Obliterate
    • Series: Yu-Gi-Oh!
    • Reverse Duel: No
    • Duel Title: Exodia the Forbidden One


    Seeker

    • Deck Name: Cheating Exodia
    • Series: Yu-Gi-Oh!
    • Reverse Duel: Yes
