WARNING!!! This is my first attempt ever at a walkthrough. It will be very basic as I add on to it, but since there are no guides for the game, and I have successfully completed the game twice now with most of the PS3 achievement, I thought it would be nice to help some of you that are struggling as much as I did. GL, if you have any questions, please email : rainbowsocks87@gmail.com and I will do my best to answer them and put the advice into the guide. Table of Contents: (0001) Character Info (0002) Storyline Assignments (0012) Assignment 1 (0022) Assignment 2 (0032) Assignment 3 (0042) Assignment 4 (0052) Assignment 5 (0062) Assignment 6 (0072) Assignment 7 (0082) Assignment 8 (0092) Assignment 9 (0102) Assignment 10 (0112) Assignment 11 (0122) Assignment 12 Character Info: * Cordelia-P (Town Square) * Iksel-P (Sunrise Cafe) 50 Cole Nearby Forest: Mudhead Mushroom National Mines: Some Egg * Sterk-P (Palace Hallway) 198 Cole * Lionela***-P (Factory Way) * Tantris***-P (Town Square) * Gio***-P (Main Street) * Tifana (in General Store) * Hagel (at Blacksmiths') * Cole*** (Town Square) * Pamela*** (Pamela's Shop) ***These characters will only show up after certain events occur. -P : These characters will join your party if you hire them to do so. Helpful Character Tip #1: You want to go to the Catacombs as soon as possible to open up Pamela's shop. It takes a few weeks/months from the time you get her, until the time she opens up her shop. You will need her shop as part of the main story line or else you will find it hard to complete the ninth assignment. See (0092) Assignment 9, for more details. Helpful Character Tip #2: Whenever you choose someone new to join your party, make sure you spend their skill points right away! They will start with no skill points to buff their skills and it leaves you wondering "why are they sucking?!". Character Tip #3: When travelling, you get different events when you match up your party members. Try the different combos because they will reveal more information about your characters some of them are shockers! The Storyline Assignments: General Notes #1: The endings and achievements can be earned by raising your friendship levels and popularity! If you want to rush through the game to "beat" it by all means go ahead, but if you don't mind spending the time and want to experience everything make sure to raise your friendship and popularity levels! Alchemy Tip #1: Alchemy can be broken down into 3 final product categories. You have quality, traits, and types (effects). When turning in your assignments, you want to keep in mind that these things will have an effect on how many stars you get depending on the specific category that they are judging you on. Generally, when they ask for specific items, they are looking for high quality items. When you are asked to make from a broad category, they are looking for a lot of items with different types. SAVING TIP: It is good to save right at the start of a new assignment. You never know when you will get stuck and you could be in danger of failing the mission. At any point you do fail a mission, you will get a game over and the game over trophy. Esty's Requests Tip #1! When you come back from gathering, don't throw all your materials in your container right away. Go visit Esty and see which requests you can turn in right away with the materials currently in your bag. It saves you from making extra trips to your workshop and is easier on your memory. Esty's Requests Tip #2! Try to do as many quests for her as you can. I'm not sure if it's by time or number of completed requests (probably number of completed quests), but when you reach that goal she will offer you a bonus reward! You can get tickets or extra cole for finishing requests and meeting the extra bonus requirements. Tickets can be used to purchase items which you can use or sell for the extra cash. To get the first assignment, I'm not 100% sure what event triggers this, but I believe it is whenever you visit the Nearby Forest then return back to your workshop for the first time. Sterk will come by the workshop and give you your very first assignment for the kingdom! The faster you do this, the more time you will have to complete the assignment. ------------------------------------------------------------ (0012)Kingdom Assignment 1: Producing Sundries ------------------------------------------------------------ Requiremented Items: -Polish Powder -Zettel -Alchemy Coal Alchemy Tip #2 and Combat Tip #1: There is no mana or energy usage in this game. So whenever you do alchemy or use skills in battle, it consumes your HP. Make sure to rest to refill your HP. Also leaving town and coming back will reset your HP but you also lose time. Recipes: * Alchemy Coal = 1 [Plant Type] + 1 [Gunpowder] The easiest choices for this would be to take a gathering trip through the Nearby Forest and collect Unis for your plant, and Beehives for your gunpowder. Make sure to gather plenty as we are aiming for quantity! * Zettel = 2x [Plant] + 1 Supplement + 1 water Again any plant from the Nearby Forest will do. Supplements are the easiest things to make with alchemy because anything you have can be turned into a supplement. Water is also an easily aquired item. Just leave the Workshop and visit Artisan's Way. You should be right outside the workshop. If you go south-east and around the corner of the workshop you will see a well where you can draw up water freely. Grab up as much water as you can or have patience to draw up, and when you get back to your workshop move it all from your basket to your containers so you will always have some laying around when you are ready for alchemy. *Polish Powder = 2 x Fest To learn this recipe, you have to visit The Sundry Shop and purchase the Sundries Book for 500 cole. It will teach you Polish Powder, healing Salve, and Barrel. At this point in the story you have only one option to obtain Fest, and that is to purchase it from Hagel the Blacksmith. It can be pretty pricey, and if you are new to the game, everything seems a bit hard to obtain in the beginning, but you can pick up jobs from Esty in the Palace to make some extra cash. Also Don't be afraid to level up a little bit. This game takes a bit of grinding and if you aren't willing to put in the time or effort, then this isn't the game for you because everything gets much harder and more expensive from here. ^^ Three of each item is enough to "complete" this task, but if you like getting more stars, the more you turn in the better. I suggest to keep making the easier items and turning those in because it will raise your alchemy level and more stars can alter your ending! I turned in 5 of each item and it got me the full number of stars needed to get my 3 stars for my evaluation. Combat Tip #2: Make sure you visit Iskel after visiting the Nearby Forest. He will want to go with you and you can hire him to join your party. He is a good party member because he has a heal and he can also find special items in an area giving your more unique items for you to gather. Other things to note during this assignment. Iskel has a book for you to learn as well. He will give you your first cook book which teaches you Blank stew, Cabbage Soup, and Black Tea. You may get jobs from Esty that requires you to make these items so pick it up as soon as you can. On Evaluation Day, you will get more completed stars if you turn in more of the items. It's quantity over quality that will get this quest completed quick ^^ ------------------------------------------------------------ (0022)Kingdom Assignment 2: Creating Explosives ------------------------------------------------------------ Requiremented Items: -Bombs -Barrels -Cannons This assignment is focusing on quality so get your best materials ready for synthesis. Also, after watching the scenes play out, Sterk will become available for you to hire. He is a powerful member and when paired with Iskel can make a good gathering team. Make sure to visit Hagel the blacksmith to open up weapon synthesis. This can be a bit tricky and I haven't mastered it yet, but you have to manipulate the traits and qualities of ignots and cloths to make new types of cloths and ignots to make new and better weapons/equipment. He will also open up the National Mines area to explore and give you a free book called Basic Blacksmith which teaches you to make ignots and cloth. The monsters in the mines are a bit tough so make sure you are leveled and have strong party members. While here make sure to buy the book Making Cannons for 500 cole. You will need it to complete your assignment! *Bombs = 2x Phlogiston + 1 [Gunpowder] You learn to make bombs from Hagel who sells the book, Making Cannons. You may also want to buy the Phlogistons from Hagel or you can gather them from the National Mines. They can be tough to obtain depending on you party and experience with the game. They are commonly found in the Demon's Path part of the mines. Gunpowder is easy. You can make this from the beehives from the Nearby Forest or if you are brave enough, the mines are full of gunpowder items. There is also a chest in the Ore area of the mines that contains a bomb. There is a big lizard guarding it and even with Sterk can be hard to defeat because there are multiple strong monsters. *Barrels = 2x [Liquid] + 2x Eiche + 1 Supplement Barrels are fairly easy to make. You can use water for your liquid, anything makes a supplement, and you can gather Eiche from the Nearby Forest. Also, In the Puni Woods area of the Nearby Forest, there is a chest guarded by 2 blue and 1 green puni. It is possible to sneak past them and grab the chest. It will always contain a barrel, but the quality is mediocre. *Cannons = 1 [Gunpowder] + 1 [Ignot] + 1 Supplement The hardest and most time consuming part is making ignots for the cannon. Ignots require two ore which you can obtain from the National mines. They take 2 days to make one and if your alchemy level is low, there is a high chance that you will mess up and lose the time, hp, and materials. Alchemy Tip #3 If you have spare time after completing Kingdom Assignments, it may be a good idea to make extra ignots to fill in the time gaps. You will need this item a lot and it does take a lot of time to create. Don't worry so much about gathering, you will have some help with that later down the road :) ------------------------------------------------------------ (0032)Kingdom Assignment 3: Replicating Ancient Tools ------------------------------------------------------------ Requiremented Items: -Witch's Salve -Beast Statue -Healing Aroma This one is a little tricky. Beast statues can be different beasts, I'm not sure which items effect the outcome, but you need to turn in a lot of these items to get all the stars you need. The book you get from Sterk has all the item recipes you need/ You may also want to grab the Plants and Ores book from the Sundry Shop because you will need it to make Pure Oil. It also teaches you to make Arland Crystal (which you will need for your 9th assignment) and Tonic (which you will need in the 5th assignment). You can also pick up the Chef's Favorite book from Iskel which teaches Meister Tarte and Special Meat. Hagel will also have a book for you called Nature and Bombs. It will teach you Lightning Bomb and Bomb bag. *Witch's Salve = 1 [Poison] + 1 [Liquid] + 1 Mandra Root We are going to need lots of Mandra Roots for this one, so head out to the Nearby Forest and go to the Foresty Lake Area and kill as many Mandrakes as possible. You will need 2 per salve, one for the poison and one for the root itself, plus some water. A fairly easy item to make. *Beast Statue = 1 [Elixir] + 1 Eiche + [Medicinal] For the elixir, you can use Mandra roots some more or you can kill the wolves in the Nearby Forest to collect Dead Beast. Each is easily collected in the forest, and for medicinal you can use mandra root or magic grass. I found it easier to go with the grass and save my roots for other items. It is just a theory, but I believe the elixir part determines what kind of statue results. So far wolf statue is the most common, but I have also gotten a bird statue when I used Tonic for my elixir. *Healing Aroma = 1 [Plant] + 1 Pure Oil You will need to buy the Plants and Ores book from the Sundry shop to learn how to make Pure Oil. You can also buy Pure Oil from the Sundry Shop but it can get expensive. Pure Oil takes an oil which you can use the Some Egg item that you learn to find from bringing Iskel to the National Mines Ore area and a supplement. Add your pure oil and plant of choice and bam! Healing Aroma done. This was one of the harder assignments. There are different types of statues, the more types of statues you can make the better your score. Also you have to turn in A LOT of items to get the full bar of stars for a 3 star evaluation. It takes a lot of work, but luckily there aren't too many hard assignments. Lionela appeared for me in this chapter. ------------------------------------------------------------ (0042)Kingdom Assignment 4: ------------------------------------------------------------ Requiremented Items: -Any types of foods ^^ These types of assignments are the best! You can make whatever you want or buy whatever you want. Personally, I made a ton of cabbage soup, blank stew, and black tea to turn in. I made 5 of each type with really good quality and it was enough to fill my star bar all the way to full to each the 3 star evaluation. You can also buy a lot of food from Iskel if you don't feel like making anything. You will most likely need a lot of candied sticks and cabbage. Most of the items gathered for this request with come from the Nearby Forest, so empty your basket and gather your heart out! General Notes #2: I'm not sure if it is by time or what exactly triggers this event, but this is about the time that Astrid asks if I would like a brother or sister. I choose brother and I really like the male hom. *SPOILER ALERT* You will get a new character soon named Hom. He will help you gather items and can even synthesis items if he has the right materials and is the right level. Hom is really useful for gathering expeditions and he is cute ^^ *End Spoiler* ------------------------------------------------------------ (0052)Kingdom Assignment 5: ------------------------------------------------------------ Requiremented Items: -Tonics Also the famous Cabbage Festival is going on! It's a fun event where you just have to run around and collect as many cabbages as you can. More than likely you will win this event and you get to keep all the cabbages >< you can choose not to watch the event and skip over it completely, but it is fun to do. *Tonic = 2 [Plant] + 2x Magic Grass + 1 [Liquid] If you didn't grab the Plants and Ores, you should now because you have to make tonics. Tonics are pretty easy. Pick any plant of your choice, gather up some magic grass from the Nearby Woods, and add some water and there you go! Easy assignment. I turned in 5 good quality (60) tonics with a ton of traits. The more traits you have, the easier this will be to complete. Try to complete as many friendship requests and Esty's Request to get a lot of cole. The books start to get really expensive (2500 for one book!) and you will need to buy them to help pass the kingdom assignments. *Famous Cooking: Danish, Passionate Soup, Happy Cookie from Iskel *Cute Bombs: Bomb Ice Balbomb from Hagel I would suggest learning this one ASAP. Bomb ices can be used to get to new areas and you will need them for some of the other requests. *Wearing Fashion: Gnardi Ring, Runes Stone, Mercurius Eye from Hagel Another good one to learn. Esty asks from Mercurius eyes and the gnardi ring is a really good accessory to have equipped for your characters. *Bacteria and Food: Alchemy yeast, Clear Gelatin, Honey from Tiffani Tantris appeared for me in this chapter. And I also gained the ability to hire him as well. Also, Astrid opened up the Catacombs area for me. I would suggest taking your strongest characters and running through to unlock Pamela and her shop, you will need enough time for Pamela to open her shop to unlock the ability to create/buy comets that you will need for the 9th assignment. ------------------------------------------------------------ (0062)Kingdom Assignment 6: ------------------------------------------------------------ Requiremented Items: -NONE! The task is pretty easy. Go into the Nearby Forest and kill all the vultures. Whomever you prefer in your party is up to you, but Sterk is a very good fighter and can get monsters really low if not one shot them. I also used Iskel for a while because he has a heal. Vultures will be the only monsters in the area, and once you have killed them, they are gone for good. This is a good time to gather up your items without worrying about running into those pesky punis, wolves, and mandrakes. You should be able to clear all the ones you need to complete the assignment. If you are an advanced alchemist, you can make BOMB ICE and use it at that point to make a bridge to cross and kill the other vulture. There is also a huge work in the Foresty Area that can be blown up with a normal BOMB to open up more area and more vultures. It is not necessary, unless you like to have 100% all the time >< ------------------------------------------------------------ (0072)Kingdom Assignment 7: ------------------------------------------------------------ Requiremented Items: Cold Items! -Bomb Ice -Water ------------------------------------------------------------ (0082)Kingdom Assignment 8: ------------------------------------------------------------ Requiremented Items: -Canons -Barrels ------------------------------------------------------------ (0092)Kingdom Assignment 9: ------------------------------------------------------------ Requiremented Items: -Comets -Arland Crystals This one was a pain in the butt for me >< Arland Crystals were not easy to make and very time consuming, and I could not for the life of me figure out where to learn how to make or buy comets. Lucky for you though! You have this guide! If you haven't entered the Catacombs yet, now is the time to do so! Run in and grab the teddy bear and take it home. After some cut scenes you will learn that the bear is possessed by the ghost of Pamela! After Pamela complaining she is bored for days/weeks, Master will show Pamela to her very own shop! Here you can buy the book to learn comets as well as buy the comets from her! ------------------------------------------------------------ (0102)Kingdom Assignment 10: aka the worst assignment ever :( ------------------------------------------------------------ Requiremented Items: -Shadow grass -Dark Coral - The monsters in this area hurt. I would suggest using Gio and Sterk and having Rorona use healing items. Gio can mostly 1 shot things with his special attack when you put in all his points, and if he doesn't Sterk usually finished them off. Just getting 1 of the items is enough to pass the assignment. The easiest way to go about this is to run and avoid all the punis and grab up the Dark Coral. ------------------------------------------------------------ (0112)Kingdom Assignment 11: ------------------------------------------------------------ Requiremented Items: -Sundry Items! This is another super easy one :D It is a relief after the completing the previous assignment >< All you have to do is make Sundry items. You can even turn in the items that you purchase from R&Ts Sundry Shop, but you won't have the added benefits of quality and traits. Just make a bunch of stuff, the better quality, more traits, and quantity, the higher your stars will be. ------------------------------------------------------------ (0122)Kingdom Assignment 12: ------------------------------------------------------------ Requiremented Items: -Anything! You can literally make anything you want. When you bring it to Sterk, he will do an accessment. If you score is low, you can return to your shop and conjure up a new item. This is where alchemy is really into detail. Pay attention to everything. The item you make is judged on 3 levels. It has to be HIGH LEVEL ITEM, it has to be in good QUALITY, and it has to have MANY TRAITS. Almost anything you make you will pass, but if you like seeing more stars you will have to work a bit harder. I settled for medicore and made a decent meteor star that got me half a bar of stars and 2 stars for my final evalutation, which was enough to end the game ^^ Congratulations on your first playthrough! This guide just covered the main story assignments. Don't Forget to raise up your reputations and do quests for your friends. The different friend levels, assignment ratings, and popularity will be the main factors in discovering what ending you will have. ------------------------------------------------------------ Legal Stuffs ------------------------------------------------------------ (c) 2010, Heidi Reid (Veetah Davis), rainbowsocks87@gmail.com This FAQ may be not be reproduced under any circumstances except for personal, private use.

INTRODUCTION [INT01] ========================================================================= First of all, thanks for reading my FAQ. A thing you should know before stepping into the world of Rorona's is that the game is tedious and time sensitive. It would be a good idea to read through any character requirements ahead of time or you will find yourself playing through the game multiple times. With 14 different endings, each with it's own requirements, you will need to make multiple saves through the game to make sure you don't make any mistakes. I will explain this more in the ending section of this guide. I will try and guide you through this overwhelming information in the least amount of playthroughs possible, but mistakes are possible and you do not have to follow my advice. If you want me to add something or notice a mistake, please email me at the above address with the correct information. ========================================================================= 2. GAMEPLAY [GMP02] ========================================================================= Controls [CNTLS] --------------------------------------- The controls for Atelier Rorona are straight forward and easy to understand. I think the most annoying part is that inverse selection when in battle (you will understand this later). Directional Pad - Moving through menus Left Analog - Walking/Running Select - Town Map (only from in town) Start - View Current Quests X - Confirm/Analyze O - Cancel/Jump Triangle - Menu L1/R1 - Active Support in Battle Characters [CHRCS] --------------------------------------- Each character has their own skills that they can use in battle. Some skills are achieved through leveling (2 attack skills and 2 passive skills), while others are dependent on which weapon the character is equipped with. Unique Skills & Passive Skills - The two attack/passive skills that you get through leveling. Expanded Skills & Expanded Passives - Learned through by equiping various weapons. Extra Skill - Usable when battle affinity reaches 5 (uber skill). |=======================================================================| | Rorona | | Age: 17 Element: Fire | |_______________________________________________________________________| | | | | | Unique Skill 1 | Unique Skill 2 | Extra Skill | |-----------------------|-----------------------|-----------------------| | Angel Shot | Ether Light | Lethal Bomb | |_______________________________________________________________________| | | | | Expanded Skills | Passive Skills | |-----------------------------------------------|-----------------------| | Angel Heart | Ether Bright | Detect Danger | | Angel Spirit | Ether Crown | Bad Luck | | Angel Fullheart | | | |_______________________________________________________________________| | | | | A girl who was forced by her master into | Expanded Passives | |taking over the workshop.

That being said, there are a few things that are different and I will cover them here. Every character has the below options: Fight Skill Defend Escape Rorona on the other hand, is the only Item user (much like Atelier Iris' Synthesis option for the main character). She can use anything in her container that she has made or found previously. |=======================================================================| | HP instead of MP | |=======================================================================| | Unlike other JRPG's, which use MP to cast spells and use skills, | |this game uses HP. Every skill has a certain cost that the player | |must first expend, if they don't have the HP, then they cannot use the | |skill. This means that healing requires the character to sacrifice HP | |to heal themself or others. | |=======================================================================| |=======================================================================| | Skills and Affinity | |=======================================================================| | Some skills you learn through leveling, but most are expanded | |versions of the original skills. The expanded skills depends on the | |weapons that the character is currently equipped with. This means that | |when the battle gauge gets to a certain level of affinity to the | |character, they get the expanded skill. | | | | When I talk about affinity I am refering to the two elemental bars | |in the bottom left. Think of these two bars as two seperate entities, | |each holding two elements (opposites). | | | | | |An example of this: | | Iksel naturally learns Slam, My Special, Tasty East, and Chef's Fave. | | | |With the Normal Pan or Training Wok he gets Brain Shaker and Special | |Dinner as expanded skills. In order to get access to Special Dinner, | |the battle gauge must have a level 1 earth element on it. You can get | |this by using Slam to build the earth side of the gauge up. If another | |character (say Sterk) or an enemy uses a Wind element attack, the gauge| |will go in reverse toward zero (possibly turning into Wind). The same | |goes for Fire and Water. If the scale manages to meet level 5 of their | |affinity they will be able to use a extra skill at zero HP cost. | |=======================================================================| The only other information to note is that the other characters in your party require a fee every time you go to a dungeon. The highter your friendship, the less they will cost though. Synthesis [SYNTH] --------------------------------------- Unlike the more well known games by Gust, Mana Khemia and Atelier Iris, where synthesis was less of a focus, this game revolves around the workshop being saved through synthesis. The game gives you a decent tutorial for what synthesis is so I will skip to the details. |=======================================================================| | HP to Synth | |=======================================================================| | Like Skills in battle, crafting takes a certain amount of HP per | |synth. When Rorona drops below 1, her fail rate increases. You can | |restore her HP with items or by sleeping on the couch in her workshop. | |As sleeping takes up valuable time, I suggest using items. | |=======================================================================| |=======================================================================| | Synthesis Takes Time | |=======================================================================| | Unlike Atelier Iris, where time didn't exist, Rorona is all about | |time managment. Every synthesis takes time to craft and can easily make| |you miss your deadlines, SO BE CAREFUL. | |=======================================================================| |=======================================================================| | Categories | |=======================================================================| | Cooking, Ore, Liquid, etc. Every item fits into one of these | |categories. Certain recipes may call for [Plant] and all items with | |this category can be used. Overall this is not important, but when a | |merchant or Sterk use this information, it can be vital. | |=======================================================================| |=======================================================================| | Synthesis Level | |=======================================================================| | Every synthesis has a level to it, which determines Rorona's | |success rate. The higher the level, the more likely you are to fail. | |You can fix this by crafting often, as every synthesis increases her | |Alchemy Level (which is seperate from her Adventuring Level, unlike Hom| |who only has an Alchemy Level). When synthing, the success rate will be| |listed on the screen. Certain item traits such as 'Simple' can help you| |make harder items while traits like 'Complex' can make them harder. | |=======================================================================| Finally, the Quality formula is a complex one and I'm not going to try and figure it out and explain it to everyone. I am not a math genius. Your best option is to average the level of your ingredients. The formula works out to a little more than this, but better safe than sorry. ========================================================================= 3. ENDING REQUIREMENTS [END03] ========================================================================= This game is ALL about the endings. Because of this, I have put the requirements for each ending all the way up here. Sure you can play through and forget all about this, but your success of getting any character endings is rare. There are two factors that influence your ending: Popularity - Town popularity from Esty's Quests Kingdom Assessment - Assignments given by Sterk When I refer to stars in Kingdom Assessments, I am refering to the BOTTOM most set of stars. Every assignment can earn you up to 10 stars, but as the best ending only requires 94 out of 120 you don't need to bother getting more than 8 stars. A breakdown of the stars follows: 1-2 stars = failure 3-5 stars = 1 big star 6-7 stars = 2 big stars 8-10 stars = 3 big stars Other than dialogue the individual assignments don't matter, only the total. There are four basic endings, not counting character or special endings. Here is the breakdown: True Ending: Assignment Stars 94+, Popularity 80+ Good Ending: Assignment Stars <94, Popularity 80+ Normal Ending: Assignment Stars 94+, Popularity <80 Bad Ending: Assignment Stars <94, Popularity <80 If you go over on the assignment stars there is no way to go back. Esty's quests, on the other hand, can be accepted and failed for a 5% loss. When I say failed, I mean the dot goes black and Esty automatically cancels it, this will happen a few days after the deadline passes. When it comes to endings, there is a priority as follows: Astrid's Ending Adventurer's Ending Character Endings Pie Ending Rich Ending Generic Endings For details on each ending, see below in the Character and Other Endings sections. There I will detail what you need to do. ========================================================================= 4. CHARACTER ENDINGS [CHR04] ========================================================================= Every character requires a generic ending matching their ending requirements and their character flag be triggered. I will list the requiremented generic ending below in each characters section, but you will need to reference the above section to see each generic endings requirements. For example: Cordelia requires you to get her flag and a True Ending. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Although you can only trigger one generic ending at a time, you can trigger multiple character flags in one playthrough, but doing so may cause issues with seeing the ending you want because the character with the highest friendship is seen with the ending. For example: Lionela's friendship is 100 and Gio's is 80. You have the requirements met for True Ending. Because Lionela's friendship is higher you will see her in the ending instead of Gios. The only problem is that her ending requires Normal Ending stats. This means that you will not see Gio or Lionela's, but the generic True Ending (with Lionela inserted in because she had the highest friendship). This is great if you are going for Generic Endings, but causes a problem when you want Character Endings. A way to solve this problem is to drop a character's friendship below the other by accepting and cancelling friends quests. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- The benefit of triggering multiple flags though, comes from being able to complete two Character Endings with one simple save. For Example: You wish to get Lionela and Tantris' endings at the same time because they both require Normal Ending requirements. All you have to do is trigger both their flags and save before in the last month of the final assignment. The character with the highest friendship (given that no character with a different ending requirement is highest) will be triggered for the Character Ending. After viewing the ending, all you need to do is reload your save and drop the friendship of the one whose ending you saw below the other and you can see the new one. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- NOTE: If other characters who don't fit the ending have higher friendship, you will need to drop it by accepting and cancelling request or you will run into the problem mentioned above. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Every character's flag requires you to trigger certain events throughout the game. You should know that you will at least 80+ friendship for a character to get their ending, so you might as well do Friends Quests as much as possible (They cycle at 4 day intervals). ---------------------------------------------------------------------- NOTE: For the easiest way to get all endings, please check follow my walkthrough and read the playthroughs section after the main walkthrough. It will tell you everything you need to know in order to get every ending as part of 1 playthrough. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Cordelia and Gio's Endings can be done in one playthrough as they both require the same True Ending. |=======================================================================| | Cordelia | |_______________________________________________________________________| | | | Requirements: True Ending | |-----------------------------------------------------------------------| | | | Cordelia's events are based on "hidden" Front Quests from Esty. As | |you complete them, you will trigger different events. | | | | Requests: | | Pebble x2 1000 cole | | Iron Clay x2 1800 cole | | Cotton Flower x2 2500 cole | | Glow Sand x2 4999 cole | | Sunny Crystal x2 3920 cole | | Mont Blanc x2 10315 cole | | Shadow Grass x2 7350 cole | | | | Event 1: When you accept the first quest (Pebble x2), an event will | | occur between Esty, Rorona and Cordelia and another when you | | complete it between Esty, Rorona and some civilians. | | Event 2: Friendship 60+ and 3 Front Quests: A scene at Tiffani's | | where Cordelia marches out angry. | | Event 3: Anytime after the above event, fail a synthesis to recieve | | a key item. The next day you will give the gem to Cordelia. | | Event 4: After completing another Front Quest, another event will | | occur where Rorona learns what's been going on. Upon leaving, | | Rorona will confront Cordelia and she will be unavailable. | | Event 5: Speak with Esty at the castle, who apologizes. | | Event 6: 10 days later an event occurs when you leave the workshop. | | Event 7: 10 days later Cordelia will apologize and you will | | activate her flag. | |=======================================================================| |=======================================================================| | Gio | |_______________________________________________________________________| | | | Requirements: True Ending | |-----------------------------------------------------------------------| | | | Year 1, month 7 | | - When entering Tiffani's there will be an event where you | | meet Gio. | | - Two weeks later, Gio will appear at the workshop and you will | | have access to his Friends Quests. | | Year 2, month 10 | | - Gio will help you with the Raptorstein assignment and be | | recruitable. | | Year 2, month 12 | | - Friendship 50+: Gio will be the final opponent in the | | Championship. You do NOT need to beat him. | | Year 3, month 1 | | - Friendship 70+: An event between Sterk, Tiffani and Rorona | | will occur at Tiffani's. NOTE: Sterk must not be | | injured from his own event with Sumi. | | - After 15 days, Gio will appear at the workshop to ask | | Rorona a question. | | - A week later you'll have to answer. If you accept, there will | | be a 2 day trip and Gio's flag will be triggered. If | | decline, Gio will be unavailable and you can't get his | | ending. | |=======================================================================| Sterk and Inksel's Endings can be done in one playthrough as they both require the same Good Ending. |=======================================================================| | Sterkenberg | |_______________________________________________________________________| | | | Requirements: Good Ending | |-----------------------------------------------------------------------| | | | Year 1-2 | | - Friendship 30+: A scene in the palace where you talk about | | Sterk's job occurs. | | - Afterwards you can talk to Esty about his behaviour. | | Year 2, month 4 | | - After a scene where Cole helps you with Pamela, you can buy | | all his Sunny Crystals on the 15th. Doing so will | | unlock Ster Highlands. As long as you unlock this | | before the next event, you will be fine. | | Year 3, month 1 | | - Friendship 60+: Sterk will warn you about Sumi Sterm. With | | Sterk in your party you must go fight him (You must | | face him before month 7, but do not need to win). Once | | you defeat Sumi, the dragon will attack Sterk and hurt | | him. He will be inaccessable for 80 days. NOTE: Sterk | | will need to recover in order to recieve his ending. | |=======================================================================| |=======================================================================| | Iksel | |_______________________________________________________________________| | | | Requirements: Good Ending | |-----------------------------------------------------------------------| | | | Iksel's events are all based on his special item when adventuring. | |Take Iksel to the below locations when you go adventuring to trigger | |an event and a special item. | | | | Nearby Forest: Mudhead | | Ortoga Ruins: Triberries | | National Mines: Some Egg | | Traveler's Way: Sour Apple | | Catacombs: Mystery Mushroom (after other event) | | Ster Highlands: Some Egg (second area) | | Nabel Lake: Swirly Shell | | Dark Woods: Dreamy Crown | | Night's Domain: Mystery Mushroom | | | | As you unlock these areas, there will be events at the Sunrise Cafe.| |These are easy to trigger as you unlock them so I won't bother talking | |about it more. When you recieve the trophy or the still image of | |Rorona working as a waitress, you have triggered Iksel's flag. | |=======================================================================| Lionela and Tantris' Endings can be done in one playthrough as they both require the same Normal Ending. |=======================================================================| | Lionela | |_______________________________________________________________________| | | | Requirements: Normal Ending | |-----------------------------------------------------------------------| | | | Year 1, month 9 | | - An event where you meet Lionela in the square | | - The next day you will meet Lionela again | | - A week later another event will occur | | (You can now do Quests for her) | | Year 1, month 10 | | - Another event with Lionela in the square | | - A week later another event | | (You can now hire Lionela) | | Year 2, month 3 | | - Friendship 30+: Go adventuring with Lionela for a scene | | - The next day Lionela will come hang out at the workshop | | - Some time later, Lionela will be hanging out with Cordelia | | watching you at the workshop | | Year 3, month 2 | | - Friendship 60+: With Lionela in your party, head to | | Traveler's Way. In one of the areas (random) will be a | | scene where she helps Rorona, who gets lost. | | - Two days later Lionela will come to the workshop to talk | | about what happened. | | Year 3, month 5 | | - Head to the square for an event where Lionela's puppets hint | | about it being time for something. | | - A week later, Lionela will show up at the workshop because | | her puppets have stopped talking. Astrid will give you | | a recipe to synthesis. | | - Once you make the recipe, go talk to Lionela and view her | | character flag finale. | |=======================================================================| |=======================================================================| | Tantris | |_______________________________________________________________________| | | | Requirements: Normal Ending | |-----------------------------------------------------------------------| | | | Year 2, month 1 | | - When you go adventuring you will automatically run into him. | | - After a number of events, he will be recruitable. | | Year 2, month 4 | | - As long as you recieve 3 big stars on the previous assignment,| | there will be a scene between Meredith and Tant about | | medicine when you go adventuring with him. | | - Upon your return, Tant will ask you about the medicine. | | Year 3, month 1 | | - When leaving the workshop, Rorona will automatically see a | | scene where the drunk Meredith gets kicked out by | | Iksel. Tant will be unavailable for a short time. | | - Some time later, Tant will come to the workshop to apologize. | | Year 3, month 4 | | - Another automatic event between Meredith and Tant about | | his succession. | | - Aftwerwards, go talk to Tant for a recipe. | | - Once you craft the instrument, the character flag triggers. | |=======================================================================| ========================================================================= 5. OTHER ENDINGS [END05] ========================================================================= These endings have other requirements than characters, in fact some require you to not trigger any character flags. |=======================================================================| | Astrid's Ending | |_______________________________________________________________________| | | | Requirements: True Ending | | Trigger all Character Flags | |=======================================================================| Astrid's Ending is by far the hardest to achieve. This is because you have a short period of time to trigger all character events. My advise is to write down all the dates of required events as a checklist for yourself to make sure you achieve them. Follow my walkthrough should also net you this ending. |=======================================================================| | Pie Ending | |_______________________________________________________________________| | | | | | To obtain this ending you must bake all the pies (quality 80+), get | |any ending other than Bad, and trigger no character endings that fit | |the generic ending (otherwise you will see the character ending and | |not the Pie Ending). | | | | Plain Pie: Automatically earned in the first month | | Basic Pie: Contains Meat, Berry, Cream, and Honey Pies | | Cabbage Pie: Earned when you make all the above over 80 | | Tasty Pie: Contains Tea, Muchroom, Seafood, and Ice Pie | | Alchemy Pie: Contains Living, Elixir, Meteor, Dunkelhiet Pie | | Ultimate Pie: Contains: Ruby, Dark, Dragon and Golden Pie | | | | Tips: | | Use the 80 quality Water from Tiffani's Shop | | Use the 70 quality Flour from Iksel's Cafe | | Make sure you bring Iksel to Catacombs and Nabel Lake when the | | become accessable. | | As the higher level pies require a higher alchemy level, I | | suggest you save before crafting them or level it up. | | | | Ingredient Locations: | | Dunkelheit: Orthogalaxen - Enemy Drop - Grow Planze | | Dark Woods - Miracle Forest - Year 2, month 11 | | Dark Woods - Miracle Forest - Year 3, month 11 | | Rorona's Parents - Between assign. 11 and 12 | | Ruby Prism: Emerald Plate Recipe - Orthogalaxen - Floor 14 | | Gold: Emerald Plate Recipe - Orthogalaxen - Floor 14 | | Orthogalaxen - Enemy Drop - Iron Giant | | | |=======================================================================| |=======================================================================| | Adventuring Ending | |_______________________________________________________________________| | | | Requirements: True Ending | | Cordelia's Ending Flag | | Rorona and Cordelia Adventure Level 50 | | Defeat the Demon | | Defeat the Iron Giant | |-----------------------------------------------------------------------| | | | Tips: | | - Work towards Gio and Cordelia's Ending at the same time | | - Save before defeating the Demon and Iron Giant in year 3 | | The reason for this is it allows you to branch into 2 | | different saves. | | - Save Year 3, before killing Bosses | | - Kill the Bosses and complete Cordelia's Flag | | for Adventuring Ending | | - Load above save, don't kill Bosses | | - Save in Year 3, month 12 | | - Character Endings (Cordelia) | | - Character Endings (Gio) | | | |=======================================================================| |=======================================================================| | Millionaire Ending | |_______________________________________________________________________| | | | Requirements: Generic Ending (Except Bad) | | No Character Flags | | Have 1,000,000 cole | |-----------------------------------------------------------------------| | | | Tips: | | - Gather with Hom a lot until he is 45+ then send s/he to | | Orthogalaxen for Dragon Scales/Tusks | | - Craft the Dragon items into high quality Iron and check | | Esty's Front Quests (with only them in your inventory). | | | |=======================================================================| ---------------------------------------------------------------------- NOTE: When I say no character flags, I mean that you do not want to see any of the FINAL scenes. This means you can see whatever scenes you want as long as it is not the last in the character chain. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ========================================================================= 6. WALKTHROUGH [WLKTH] ========================================================================= ---------------------------------------------------------------------- READ BEFORE PLAYING: If you are going for as many endings as possible in one playthrough, please read the Playthroughs section of this guide. This guide will tell you how to see all events and guides you through every character flag events (in the hopes that you are going for Astrid's Ending). I will mention points where you should make a NEW save. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------- HOW TO USE THIS GUIDE This guide is broken up into assignment sections. Within the sections I only mention dated events. In between events you can do whatever you want. If a new area unlocks I suggest visiting it. ALWAYS read the whole section for tips at the bottom of the individual section BEFORE you play through it. These are events you should look out for within each section, but can occur whenever. It's always better to know what you are getting into so you don't feel lost. MAKE A SAVE AT THE START OF EVERY ASSIGNMENT! This is for people who want to make sure they don't screw something up. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Beginning [WLK00] --------------------------------------- Welcome to Arland - the small kingdom in the middle of nowhere. Yes, there is a backstory and no you won't remember it by the end of the game. To sum it up, the kingdom was not technologically advanced until "machines" were discovered and a traveling alchemist showed everyone how to use them. Now everyone is lazy and the alchmists reward was the workshop you will be saving (only many many years later). |===============| | Year 1, 1/8 | |===============| - Meet Rorona and Sterk, whose come with a message for Astrid. - Head to the palace, meet Esty, and learn about your mission. You will also learn about how Assignments an Town Popularity works. - Meet Cordelia and gain your first Trophy. You will quickly realize that Astrid is utterly "useless" and evil. |===============| | Year 1, 1/10 | |===============| - Learn everything you need to know about Synthesis. I won't go over this in detail as it is explained in the Gameplay section of this document. If you care, go read it. |===============| | Year 1, 1/12 | |===============| - Meet Ms. Tiffani at the R&T's Sundries shop. Remember where all these named NPC's are as you will be interacting with them on a regular basis. She is your source for the best Water in the game. - Meet Hagel and his hilarious music. At the moment he doesn't offer much, but later he will be your weapon and armor forger. A quick note, NEVER buy his items (except Fest, Phlogiston and Recipes) - Meet Iksel, who will be vital in adventuring your first couple months since he is one of the few healers in the game. The major items you will be purchasing off him are Flour, Salt and even Quest items (depending on your money - New Game+ or not). ---------------------------------------------------------------------- NOTE: After this you should be using the Select button for all forms of quick movement between these shops. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- - Not much else is going on so head back to the workshop for an event with Rorona's parents. |===============| | Year 1, 1/13 | |===============| - IKSEL'S FLAG: Waste two days crafting items, such as 2 Polish Powder, and then hire Iksel before leaving town. Taking him will give you access to his unique harvesting item. |===============| | Year 1, 1/15 | |===============| - At the Sunrise Cafe you can now hire Iksel. This event can occur later, this is just the earliest opportunity. My advice is to hire him asap for 50 cole. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- NOTE: Make sure your bag is empty before you go adventuring. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- |=======================================================================| | ADVENTURING TIPS: | |-----------------------------------------------------------------------| | | | - Spend all the time between the 15th and the 19th in the forest and | | head back for the 20th. | | | | - Fight every monster in an area before moving on since each area | | is a set time, rather than a running clock. This means you can | | spend anywhere from 10 seconds to 5 minutes in an area at a single | | cost. This also means you need to be careful when clicking | | destinations. | | | | - When in doubt, throw an Uni. These things are worthless for | | synthesis, but really good damage in early gameplay. | | | | - Don't be afraid to use your skills, especially with Iksel around. |
