Walkthrough - Trophy Guide
Nier - PS3, US Trophy Guide Written by PFirefly Email - email@example.com ================= Table of Contents ================= Version History Introduction Fishing and Farming tips Trophy List and Details Weapon List and Location Frequently Asked Questions Contact Acknowledgments Legal =============== Version History =============== 1.0 -- Initial guide complete 1.1 -- Minor edits, and formatting 1.12 - Fixed typos, errors, and added details about havesting and making money. 1.2 -- Alternate strategies for gardener, man of means, and upgrading trophies added. Added a missing weapon to the list at the end. ============ Introduction ============ This is my first guide. Considering the lack of a proper trophy list, and the ease that you can get them if you know what you're doing, I took it on myself to fill the gap. The trophies are mostly broken up into the sections of the game you can get them. 00-Prologue, 01-Sealed Verses, and 02-Five Years Later. My guide should allow you to get platinum in a minimum of time and playthroughs. I try to keep spoilers to a minimum, but some are unavoidable. You have been warned. ======================== Fishing and Farming Tips ======================== ------- Fishing ------- There are 15 types of fish, and each has a preferred habitat and bait type. When you first get the fishing pole you don't have the fishing level to catch stronger fish easily. In theory you could catch the Rhizodont as soon as you get a pole, but it's not likely. You can increase your fishing level by accepting quests from the gentleman that gave you a pole in the first place. As a general rule, you don't need to press x ever, just pull back on the stick as soon as you see it bite (violent pull on the line) and then pull in the opposite direction it is swimming. If you're doing it right the line won't break and the fish's health will go down faster. You can adjust the camera to make it easier to see when you've got a bite, so adjust as needed to where you're comfortable. More detail will be in the fishing related trophies. ------- Farming ------- The game uses your internal clock to determine how long plants have been growing. You can "cheat" the game by saving, setting your clock ahead by a day, and then loading. Generally you should fertilize before planting. Bounty increases the output, Flowering doubles the window of opportunity for harvest -ing, and Speed cuts the grow time in half. It not required though, so don't fertilize if don't want to. If you are using the clock cheat then I recommend the Bounty fertilizer which can be bought for 300g from the item shop in Seafront and Facade More details in the farming related trophies. ======================= Trophy List and Details ======================= ------------------ Storyline Trophies ------------------ These trophies are unlocked by just playing through the main story and are not missable unless you stop playing ;) ++++++++ Name: The Book of Legend Description: Grimoire Weiss joined your party Type: Bronze Details: Obtained towards the end of the first dungeon in part 01 ++++++++ Name: The Wild Companion Description: Kaine joined your party Type: Bronze Details: Obtained after your second fight against the Hook Shade at the Aerie. ++++++++ Name: Mellow Companion Description: Emil Joined your party Type: Bronze Details: Obtained in part 02 as soon as you visit Emil in the Manor ++++++++ Name: Release Description: Freed Kaine from her petrification Type: Bronze Details: Obtained in part 02 after beating Jack in your third encounter. ++++++++ Name: Key Collector Description: Unlocked the key to the Shadowlord's Castle Type: Bronze Details: Obtained in part 02 after collecting the key fragments from the Lost Shrine, Forest of Myth, Junk Heap, the Aerie, and the desert. ++++++++ Name: A world in Flux Description: You defeated the Shadowlord Type: Bronze Details: Obtained when you defeat the Shadowlord, duh :P ----------------- Prologue Trophies ----------------- You can get these two in other parts of the game, but they're the easiest to get here. I recommend playing on normal for this trophy so they won't kill you, but you won't kill them too quickly either. ++++++++ Name: Combo Fanatic Description: You pulled off a 50-hit combo Type: Bronze Details: After the first two waves of enemies you will get a seemingly endless wave attacking you. The combo keeps going even if you whiff an attack or get hit, you just need to get another hit within 2 seconds to keep it going. No need for fancy maneuvers, just spam your basic attack. ++++++++ Name: Combo Master Description: You pulled off a 100-hit combo Type: Silver Details: Just keep your combo going after getting 50, and you'll have this in no time :) ----------------------- Part 01 - Sealed Verses ----------------------- Most of the trophies can be obtained during this section. Only a few will require additional work in section 02, or are specific to part 02 which will be listed in that section. ++++++++ Name: The Magic Man Description: You learned every type of magic Type: Bronze Details: Obtained automatically by the end of part 01 ++++++++ Name: Wordsmith Description: You collected 50% of all words Type: Bronze Details: You earn words for killing certain enemies or completing quests. You can check your progress in Grimoire Weiss, but won't get this till part way into part 02. If you kill every new enemy you see you should obtain this easily. There are only a few words that are quest rewards and they are listed below. Paho ---- (Quest: A Shade Entombed) Varil --- (Quest: A Tale of the Study) Ulal ---- (Quest: The Great Tree) Otza ---- (Quest: Disturbing the Sleep of Kings) Konkarr - (Quest: Disturbing the Sleep of Kings) Ashurka - (Quest: A Bridge in Peril) Solira -- (Quest: Master of the Southern Plains) ++++++++ Name: Man of Means Description: You accumulated 1,000,000 pieces of gold Type: Bronze Details: This one is both easy and hard. You probably won't get this trophy till in part 02. I'm listing it here so you can get it quicker. Basically, DON'T BUY ANYTHING, EVER. If you are playing on easy or normal you don't actually need to ever buy anything. Health items are easily found and many of the weapons can be found, or purchased after getting this trophy. I HIGHLY recommend saving every piece of gold you can till you get the trophy. The weapon upgrading and collecting trophies can wait till after this one. By all means, collect the ones out of the chests still, but just don't buy any yet. The way to actually earn this much is to do every quest you can. There are 36 quests in part 01, and 34 in part 02. Total money you could earn this way is 779,800. Some quests will give you less depending on your actions or purchases. The easiest way to get the rest is to cultivate and sell white moonflowers. They sell for 5000, and using the guidelines listed below you can cultivate for the seeds and then sell the flowers. When cultivating you can only choose to harvest flowers or seeds, when you plant white moonflowers, each seed will give you 2 seeds, doubling your investment. Basically, use the clock cheat to get enough seeds (each seed can produce 1 flower) to meet the rest of your money requirements then switch to harvesting flowers. This method should allow you to earn 300k in about 20 minutes. Or you could just do this as soon as you have the three rows and do it for all the money, though this isn't a fun process and can take 3-4 hours. ******************************************************************************* * * * Alternate Strategy, according to G1234, Original author unknown * * * * Rice sells for 300G each, and you get at least 9 per pod, w/o water or * * fert. With water, it goes up to an average of 11x per pod. With water and * * Bounty Fert you get up to 14x or higher, but I don't personally use Fert * * since it costs money. * * * * With the White MF you have to harvest seeds, which seem to output max 3 * * seeds per plot, with Bounty Fert and Water. Having to harvest the seeds * * first, and then plant them equates too much time, it doesn't make enough * * money to cover the time loss, not to mention the fact that you can only * * carry a maximum of 10 in your inventory, before you HAVE to go sell. * * * ******************************************************************************* ++++++++ Name: Village Handyman Description: You completed 10 quests Type: Bronze Details: Self explanatory, complete 10 quests. You should get this easily within the first 5 hours if you take the time to do them. Keep an eye out for speech bubbles, and check the local bar since many quests are given by the people inside drinking. ++++++++ Name: Jack of All Trades Description: You completed 20 quests Type: Bronze Details: More of the same, keep running those errands :P ++++++++ Name: Go-To guy Description: You completed 30 missions Type: Silver Details: Same ol' same ol' There are 36 quests in part 01 so this trophy is doable now. Some of them are quite involved and will take some patience and plenty of running, but none are truly hard. ++++++++ Name: Legendary Gardener Description: You successfully cultivated the legendary flower Type: Bronze Details: Be sure to do both the quests for your village's florist to unlock your whole field. I'm going to assume that you are using the clock cheat to get this, so just follow the clock cheat steps between each planting and harvesting I list below. *IMPORTANT* Because you want seeds, not flowers, you need to actually advance the clock ahead 36 hours to get to the moonflower grass stage where it has seeds. When planting, alternate between flowers. Ie, red, gold, red, gold, red would be one row, then do the same with the next two rows. Purchase, or find 18 red moonflower (MF) seeds, 12 gold MF seeds, and 6 blue MF seeds. Using bounty fertilizer, alternate planting of red and gold MF seeds, water. Cheat, harvest. If you don't get at least 9 peach MF seeds, reload your save and try again. Next, bounty fertilizer, alternate gold and blue MF seeds, water. Cheat, harvest. Reload if you don't get at least 6 indigo MF seeds. Next, bounty fertilizer, alternate red and indigo MF seeds, water. Cheat, harvest. Reload if you don't get at least 6 pink MF seeds. Next, bounty fertilizer, alternate peach and pink MF seeds, water. Cheat, harvest. If you don't get any white MF seeds, reload. Once you harvest the white MF seed, you'll get your trophy. Using the white MF seed, you can then start making money faster than doing the missions. Enjoy your trophy :) **Notice** Some people have been reporting that reloading doesn't change the results and that only by replanting were they able to get a white MF to appear. ++++++++ Name: Fish of Legend Description: You caught a rhizodant Type: Bronze Details: Make sure to do all the fishing quests for the fisherman (the guy who gave you a pole) to make this easier. You'll have to wait till part 02 to finish his quests though. The legendary fish has the mosthealth of any you've gone after. Fish location: Desert, yup weird, but that's where it is. There is a fast moving area of sand that's basically sand/water. There's a dock in the NE corner and SW corner of the desert. Use carp for bait, and have patience. Even using its favorite bait you still have a low chance to get it to even bite. You'll know when it bites by the pattern on the line: medium nibble, medium nibble, BITE. If you don't get a medium nibble on the first pull, reel in your line so you don't waste the bait. This is a matter of patience, so buy an extra controller for when you smash your first one :P ++++++++ Name: A Round by the Pond Description: You caught every type of fish Type: Silver Details: Same as above, do fishing quests to increase you level and use the proper bait. You'll have to wait till part 02 to finish the fishing quests though. There are 15 fish and many can be caught easily without special bait at all. I'll specify the ideal location and bait, as well as the bite pattern. The village is your starting village. Some of the fish, especially the desert ones have a low chance to even bite in the first place, so have patience. The bite patterns will be described as: S: small nibble (1 small tug) M: medium nibble (2 small tugs) B: BITE Shaman Fish --- Seafront Beach (where the seals are), lure, SSB Sardine ------- Seafront Warf, lugworm, MB Blowfish ------ Seafront Warf, lugworm, SSB Bream --------- Seafront Warf, lure, MMB Shark --------- Seafront Warf, sardine, SB Blue Marlin --- Seafront Warf, sardine, B Dunkleosteus -- Seafront Warf, sardine, SMB Carp ---------- Village, earthworm, MB Rainbow Trout - Northern Plains, lure, SSB Black Bass ---- Village, lure, SB Giant Catfish - Eastern Road, carp, B Royal Fish ---- Eastern Road, earthworm, MSB Hyneria ------- Desert, sardine, SSB Sandfish ------ Desert, lure, B Rhizodant ----- Desert, carp, MMB Total difficulty for this trophy? Two smashed controllers :P ++++++++ Name: Material Hunter Description: You collected 50 types of raw materials Type: Bronze Details: This one is easily accomplished by making sure to kill new animals for meat and hides, as well as gathering every sparkle you can. This one should be obtained easily in part 01 if you follow this advice. I don't know if you have to have them all on you at once, but I did so better safe than sorry :) ++++++++ Name: All Aboard! Description: Rode a boar for at least five minutes Type: Bronze Details: Fairly easy. After completing the boar mission and obtaining the tusk, you can then ride boars in any open area. I did this in the Northern Plains since it has only weak enemies and a few sheep. Hold x and use the L2 and R2 buttons with the analog stick to drift. Don't run into a rock and you should be fine. ++++++++ Name: The Sheep Whisperer Description: You killed 100 sheep Type: Bronze Details: As a general rule, never approach any animal from the front or rear, they will kick your ass. Approach from the side and hack away. You'll have to re-enter the area a few times to get enough sheep. As a bonus, you can sell 10 packs of mutton to a woman sitting near the fountain in your town's market for 1500g. Easy money :) -------------------------- Part 02 - Five Years Later -------------------------- ++++++++ Name: Weapons Collector Description: You found every weapon Type: Silver Details: I have the weapon list and locations located after the trophy section. I recommend doing this after the Man of Means trophy. However, keep collecting just don't buy any till you get 1,000,000g since it will make it that much harder later. ++++++++ Name: Upgrade Apprentice Description: You upgraded five weapons to their maximum level Type: Bronze Details: Each weapon has four levels, and requires 1000g and various materials to upgrade each time. Most materials can be bought at shops if you don't feel like gathering them. I recommend doing this after the Man of Means trophy. **Notice** According to Chupacabrabra, materials have a higher drop rate while playing on easy. Before loading your save, change the difficulty setting in the options menu to easy. ++++++++ Name: Reform Specialist Description: You upgraded fifteen weapons to their maximum level Type: Bronze Details: Same as above, just ten more times. I recommend doing this after the Man of Means trophy. ++++++++ Name: Forging Master Description: You upgraded thirty weapons to their maximum level Type: Silver Details: You know what to do :) I recommend doing this after the Man of Means trophy. I'll update later with a list of materials and locations. ++++++++ Name: Educated Warrior Description: You read the final novel segment type: Bronze Details: Just read Kaine's story after beating the game. After the final boss you will have the option to save. Load and select to read Kaine's dream. ++++++++ Name: Call Her Back Description: You viewed the first ending Type: Silver Details: Beat the game the first time. After the final boss the game asks you to save, do so and when you load it, it will carry over all your xp, weapons and items. the new game+ starts you out at the start of part 02 ++++++++ Name: Lingering Memories Description: You viewed the second ending Type: Silver Details: Beat the game again, there's just more story this time. Same as last time, it asks you to save, do so. When you load you'll start the same place as before and be on your 2nd new game+ where I recommend going for the boss time trial trophies. You'll be strong enough to get them by now, but you'll miss out on some great story sequences. ++++++++ Name: Thank You Description: You viewed the third ending Type: Gold Details: Be sure to do the boss time trial trophies during this playthrough. They are listed after the fourth ending trophy. Same as before, except an extra boss fight. *Important* The game will ask a question and you need to select the FIRST option. *Important* Be sure to save before entering the Shadowlord's castle so you can get the 4th ending trophy without playing through yet another new game+ ++++++++ Name: Something Very Special Description: You viewed the fourth ending Type: Gold Details: Reload the save I asked you to make before the final boss. When it asks you the question this time, choose the second option. *Important* After getting this trophy all your save data for the game will be deleted, so make a back up before doing this if you want to keep your saves. ++++++++ Name: King of the lost Shrine Description: You defeated Gretel within 2 1/2 minutes Type: Silver Details: Assuming you are doing this on your second new game+ like I advised, this trophy, and the other boss trophies will be cake thanks to being WAY over powered. Save before attempting any of the boss trophies just in case. You should already know his strengths and weakness from the first two times you fought him. Kick his ass :) If you need a little more oomph, use strength and magic drops. ++++++++ Name: A True Friend Description: You stopped the berserk Kaine within 1 minute type: Silver Details: Follow the above guidelines for an easy win. ++++++++ Name: Boss of the Junk Heap Description: You defeated P-33 within 4 1/2 minutes Type: Silver Details: Nothing new :) ++++++++ Name: Scourge of the Aerie Description: You defeated Wendy within 8 1/2 minutes Type: Silver Details: Same stuff, different monster. ++++++++ Name: Protector of the Facade Description: You defeated Roc within 3 1/2 minutes Details: Keep up the good work! :) ++++++++ Name: Permission Granted Description: You drove off the twins within 2 1/2 minutes Details: These next five are part of a marathon of final encounters. You can save before this boss, but not before the next four. You may have reload your save to get this, but as long as you have a healthy supply of drops, and use what you've learned you should get through these five just fine. ++++++++ Name: A Dirge for the Hero Description: You defeated Goose within 2 minutes Type: Silver Details: Same strategies, kick his ass :) ++++++++ Name: Soul Crusher Description: You defeated the twins within 3 1/2 minutes Type: Silver Details: Keep going ;) ++++++++ Name: Book Burner Description: You defeated Grimoire Noir within three 1/2 minutes Type: Silver Details: He doesn't even put up a fight. ++++++++ Name: The Once and Final King Description: You defeated the Shadowlord within 3 1/2 minutes Type: Silver Details: Shadowpansy is more like it. ++++++++ Name: The Strongest Bond Description: You defeated the berserk Kaine within 3 1/2 minutes Type: Silver Details: You can get this one during ending 3 or 4. Be sure to save before this fight so you can redo it if you fail, and for the fourth ending. Use what you have learned in your struggles, and some drops :) ---------------- Special Trophies ---------------- Name: Lightspeed Fighter Description: You completed the game within 15 hours Type: Silver Details: After getting the fourth ending trophy, start a brand new game on Easy difficulty. Don't do ANY extra quests, skip all dialogs, and use what you've learned to beat bosses quickly. *Run, don't walk* Do the boar quest so you can ride them to save travel time. The game time never stops unless you quit out. That means opening your menu, pressing the PS button, or any other normal way to stop the game clock won't work. Saving and exiting is the only way to keep the time from advancing. Save often so you can replay bosses or sections you felt you took too long on. You should be able to beat the game within 8-10 hours, probably less. ++++++++ Name: Platinum Description: Acquired all the other trophies Type: Platinum Details: Self-explanatory. It takes roughly 40-50 hours, or less depending on your efficiency. Enjoy it, you earned it :) ========================= Weapon List and Locations ========================= There are three types of weapons: One handed, two handed, and spears. I prefer spears myself. I'll only be listing the earliest locations and prices since this isn't a weapons faq, sorry.

A: None of the trophies are very hard assuming you followed my guide in order. Q: I'm looking for in the shops, but I can't find it anywhere! What's going on? A: Sorry, but this isn't an item shop guide. It's really not hard to search for stuff since the game world is relatively small. Q: The trophy section on the XMB isn't displayed, what's going on? A: I never had that problem, but I installed the game before starting. Try installing it via the options menu on the main screen. ======= Contact ======= Feel free to email me with questions, comments, or suggestions.
