Guide By: Setsuna F Seiei
Estimated Difficulty: 8/10.
Record of Agarest War will be quite a long RPG to Platinum, so be prepared to spend quite a bit of time playing through the game. The reason for the high difficulty level is due to the strength of the enemies on HARD. Boss fights can be incredibly difficult on EASY, so now imagine them on HARD. You must also prepare yourself for a fight with a boss who is Level 999. After you've accomplished that, you must grind out the remaining titles you need. The missable trophies aren't all that missable if you're following the guide, however, there will be a point in the game when you can no longer get them.
In your journey to earn Platinum, you have to decide which path you want to take. By "path," I mean... Do you want to start off on HARD now, or later? There are pros and cons to both methods and it's your decision:
For this method, you will be taking on the game straight on HARD. Experienced and patient players may want to take this path. It will save you a lot of time, however, the boss fights could prove to be quite frustrating.
Once you reach Generation 5, you'll be able to start creating ATK+999 and MAG+900 extra skills which can really help you through the remainder of the game if you make it this far.
Once you reach Generation 5, start grinding out as many ATK+999 and MAG+900 extra skills as you can and then proceed to beat the game. You can then start a New Game+ on HARD. Keep in mind, although a lot of things will not carry over, your extra skills will, so now you'll be able to start with godlike power. This makes the HARD playthrough nothing but a joke (until you reach the true ending).
There's nothing to worry about or any specific details that need to be noted. Following the In-Depth Perfect Path guide is all you need to do, however, be wary of the various bride trophies and the "You Complete Me" trophy as they can be missed. Look under their trophy descriptions for more details.
After completing the main story, if you followed the In-Depth Perfect Guide, you should be in the True Ending now. At this point, you'll want to grind out the godlike ATK+999 and MAG+900 extra skills. If you're doing the first method (1 Playthrough on HARD), you need to start grinding out all your titles before finishing the True Ending. However, if you're doing the second method (1 Playthrough on EASY, 1 New Game+ Playthrough on HARD) you'll want to go ahead and finish the True Ending, then return and do the titles when you reach this point again on HARD.
PSN Game Add-ons
Record of Agarest War Item Pack 13: Four Gods Kit
Read the descriptions to each add-on and see if you think they're worth the admission price. Don't worry about Gold and so forth; as you progress through the game, these will come easily. Keep in mind though that if you decide to do the second method, you will lose the add-ons on your second playthrough because most of the materials do not carry over.
The wiki also provides complete lists of enemies, weapons, and every other bit of information you will need in order to complete the game. In-Depth Perfect Path outlines the best decisions for you to make, so you can get all the bride trophies, all character profiles, and everything else to 100%. Trick will explain the ATK+999 and MAG+900 distribution.
The game is very enjoyable and a pretty rewarding Platinum compared to other JRPGs such as Final Fantasy XIII and Resonance of Fate. The trophies and the achievements for the game aren't the same, and as a manner of fact, there are fewer trophies than achievements. Luckily, you won't have to worry about one of the achievements which requires a lot of grinding and can add 50+ hours to your total time.
[PS3T Would Like to Thank Setsuna F Seiei for this Road Map]
|Earned every trophy|
Congratulations, you are now one of the few to have Platinum in Record of Agarest War. You've earned your bragging rights!
|In Title Only|
|Make sure to check your titles. You can acquire titles at the Adventurer's Guild in town.|
This should be one of the first trophies you get. Once you enter the first town and finish all the dialogue, you're given options to enter guilds and a shop. Enter the "Adventurers Guild" and select "Titles". There you will see a list of 152 titles, most of which are probably secret right now with a "????" in its place. Simply find and select a title you can earn, highlighted in green, for this trophy.
|The More The Merrier|
|Execute a coordinated attack with six characters.||(1)|
You must have 6 party members. The earliest point in the game you can accomplish this is after recruiting Zerva after the battle at Zelzagun Fort in Generation 1. You must connect all your party members during your movement phase before battle. How you can tell if a character will connect at a certain spot is by the yellow outlined squares shown when you select the character, also known as their extended areas. Your 6 man link looks like this after you set it up:
On your first turn in the battle phase, have each party member set with at least one attack. After the final attack by the final party member, this trophy should unlock.
Note: It seems that for a majority of players this trophy will not unlock if you have your animations turned off, if that's the case simply go to your settings (in the battle menu) and switch them back on.
|You have added an item to the shop. Keep doing alchemy to add more.|
Much like "In Title Only," this will be one of the first trophies you unlock. When you enter the first town, one of the guilds that are open will be the Blacksmith Guild. Select it and you will be given the option to enhance your weapon or alchemize a new one. You can do either, but simply enhancing one of your weapons is a much easier choice.
|Can We Keep Him?|
|Captured a monster.|
When you have the dark attribute skill Capture (the earliest you can get it is in a treasure chest in one of the quest areas), equip it to Zerva or Vira Lorr (they should be the only two who can use it at the earliest point in the game). In battle, weaken a monster down to a sliver of life remaining; the monster should be kneeling down to show it is weakened. Use the capture skill and pray that it works. The level of your characters' LUCK influences how often you can capture a monster.
|I've Created a Monster!|
Look under "Can We Keep Him?" on how to capture a monster. Capture any two monsters and go into the Monsters Guild. Select combine and choose the two monsters you have captured. So long as you combine them, it will give you the trophy. It doesn't have to make a new monster (some combinations produce the same monster you're using to create it).
|We Can Rebuild Them|
|Created three marionettes.|
After Generation 1, you will have access to the Alchemist Guild where you can make marionettes of the hero and heroines from previous generations. However, to make them you must first find Forbidden Books that are all located in quest areas, 1 book in each generation after the first:
Ancient Forest (Generation 2)
Keep in mind that making marionettes is expensive and the price increases depending on the character's level. If you want to keep the price low, don't use every heroine in each generation too often to the lower the amount you have to pay.
If you're having trouble affording these marionettes, keep in mind that you can net an easy 50,000 by selling one item. Go to the adventurers guild and select TP Exchange. Look for the item Vessel of Life which can be received for 25 TP. Sell the item in the shop and you'll always get 50,000 for it. If you ever have money problems, this is the perfect way to get money.
|Used your first Special Art|
You must combine two EX arts and create a combination attack out of it. The first one you should be able to perform includes Ellis' Shining Storm and Borgnine's Deadly Drive. If you're having trouble getting this naturally, simply have Borgnine be the only one to attack and have him placed near a majority of the monsters while Ellis heals. Once you have the appropriate amount of AP and SP to execute a combination attack, then do so.
|Every profile is now available.|
To unlock character profiles, you must fulfill certain requirements and choose certain decisions to obtain them all. However, if you're following the In-Depth Perfect Path guide, you should be able to get this at the start of your next playthrough after defeating the True Ending. Your last character profile will be Chaos Dyshana and you'll unlock this trophy as you open the Character Profile data in the menu when it's at 100%.
|I've Seen Everything|
|Every item in the gallery is now available.|
This will take a little longer than the Character Profiles. You must collect all the appealing Character Gallery images. You CAN get them all in one playthrough, however, it must be on HARD. Follow the In-Depth Perfect Path to get nearly half of the CGs, then the rest of the CGs are given to you in the form of "Secret Albums" as rewards from various titles. The secret albums given to you unlock CGs such as the cave CG in Generation 2 where you must choose which heroine you fall in the cave with. However, some titles aren't obtainable on EASY or NORMAL. You must be playing on HARD to get 100% on this. Once you open the Character Gallery when it's at 100%, this trophy will unlock.
|Cleared Generation 1.|
This trophy is story related and will unlock naturally. You play as Leonhardt in this Generation where you'll have the decision to marry one of the following girls:
You also meet the following party members in this Generation:
|Cleared Generation 2.|
This trophy is story related and will unlock naturally. You play as Ladius in this Generation where you'll have the decision to marry one of the following girls:
You also meet the following party members in this Generation:
|Cleared Generation 3.|
This trophy is story related and will unlock naturally. You play as Thoma in this Generation where you'll have the decision to marry one of the following girls:
You also meet the following party members in this Generation:
|Cleared Generation 4.|
This trophy is story related and will unlock naturally. You play as Duran in this Generation where you'll have the decision to marry one of the following girls:
You also meet the following party members in this Generation:
|Cleared Generation 5.|
This trophy is story related and will unlock naturally. You play as Rex in this Generation. You also meet the following party members in this Generation:
Dyshana (Finally able to use in your party.)
|For Real This Time|
|Saw the true ending.||(1)|
To unlock the true ending, you must meet the following requirements:
When taking over bases in the 5th Generation, go in the order Southwest (Lingen) -> North (Centan) -> Northwest (Vol Tuanor) and make sure you don't get a dark alignment in any of the forts.
Make sure Dyshana and Vashtor join your party. Dyshana will join so long as you're NEUTRAL during the event on Marena Highway. Vashtor will join so long as you DO NOT attack him for 7 turns during his fight.
Make sure you have all 4 Forbidden Books.
Have under 500 turns.
Be NEUTRAL after defeating the final boss of the main story.
If you meet these requirements after defeating the final boss, the game will continue with you in the Boundary Plane. To ensure you get all trophies and still meet the requirements for this, please follow the In-Depth Perfect Path Guide.
Note: It seems that if you choose Ellis as your final wife, after beating the true ending you will not get the trophy. So when given the option, pick another female. If you REALLY want Ellis, do it on a different save or on another playthrough.
|Earned every title.||(5)|
There are a total of 142 titles in the game, all of which have you fulfilling various tasks. Some are easy and others are mind-boggling. You can only earn every title on HARD as some enemies needed for certain titles only appear on this difficulty. Earning all the titles could take a while, but so long as you're patient, you can earn them all in a matter of time.
Note: Keep in mind that for the All Weapons Title, you'll find that it's much easier to obtain a majority of the items on HARD in the Boundary Plane. Using skills such as EX Steal and killing enemies in this area with overkill will increase the chance of receiving weapons you need. This is much easier than having to find all the materials for alchemy.
|You Always Remember Your 500th|
|The number of turns has exceeded 500.|
When you have 499 turns displayed on your total turn counter, this trophy will unlock once you enter the next battle to give you your 500th turn. You will probably unlock this from the True End during all the grinding for various things, so you shouldn't worry about this too much.
|It seems something unexpected was created.|
This is a random occurrence that can happen at any time when you’re performing Alchemy at the Blacksmith Guild. As you perform the alchemy, it will be interrupted with the blacksmith's face and it will produce a completely different item from what was intended. There are no factors that influence this happening, but because you'll be performing alchemy quite often in the game, this should come to you naturally.
|Dealt over 10,000 damage with a single blow.|
You must deal at least 10,000 points of damage to the enemy in a single attack. If you decide to grind out the ATK+999 like I mentioned before, then this will come quite naturally to you later on in the game. However, if you decide to do it right now, the best way is to have Leonhardt use Howling Blade while his will power "Unleash All" is active. The attack is a one hit blow and should do well over 10,000 if your attack status is high enough.
|Elaine is my bride.|
At the end of Generations 1-4, you are given the option to marry one of the three girls depending on their love interest in you. You must have a love interest of at least level 4 to marry the girl, but you won't get the trophy unless they are maxed out at a level 5 love interest in you. If you're following the In-Depth Perfect Path, you should end each generation with the girls all at a level 5 love interest in you.
Save before the last event of the generation and proceed with the wedding. When the trophy unlocks, skip the dialogue and reload your last save. Repeat with the other girls.
If for some reason it won't give you the trophy, it means you screwed up somewhere, so always have a separate save file before the love adjustment event and make sure you did everything correctly.

|Why Did We Play God?!|
|Created a special monster by combining other monsters.|
For this trophy, you must create what is known as a god monster. Here are two ways of creating one, starting with the earliest:
For the formula to create a Luijt, capture the following monsters:
Combine these two and you can create a Luijt. However, if you feel that the Mucrane is too hard to capture, you can create it by capturing a Big Eye (Vovokas Pass) and combining it with a separate Angel.
You can also create an Evil Dragon, capture the following monsters:
Combine the Medusa and Lesser Demon into a Dark Spirit (be wary though that sometimes it'll say the result will be a Light Spirit, cancel and try again and it should give you the option of a Dark Spirit) and then combine the Dark Spirit and Mist Dragon to create an Evil Dragon.
|You Complete Me|
|You have been loved like there's no tomorrow.|
For this trophy, you must marry a girl who has added affection for you past the love interest level cap of 5. If you're following the In-Depth Perfect Path guide, this would be impossible, so have a separate save before one of the love adjustment events, preferably the first one. When you want to go for this trophy, load that save and make decisions that always increase the love of one girl for you. Proceed past the boss fight of that generation and then marry the girl at the end. The trophy should unlock as the next generation starts.
|Conqueror of the Planes|
|Defeated the last of the ancient gods.|
This trophy can only be unlocked on HARD. After defeating the Holy Dragon in the Boundary Plane, fight him again and more paths should open up. Once you have defeated every area in the Boundary Plane, this trophy should unlock. Be warned that the final boss of the Boundary Plane is Level 999 and a difficult opponent. Stock up on items, level up accordingly and equip your party members with suitable gear.
