Guide to get all the achievements, and also some tips useful to play normally.
 
 
The general content of this guide would be spoiler-free, however, it has marked spoilers, those ones are tought to be read after finishing the game at least once, and even there it would try to not spoil optional things you can miss.
 
 
This guide lacks the fight achievements, those are planned to be added in the future, however, when that happens it would be impossible to not spoil the number of fights in the game, so be aware of that.
 
 
And disclaimer, english is my 2nd language, so, sorry in advance for any mistake or if something seems strange, I have no problem with people pointing mistakes, either about language or about the content of the guide.
 
 

IMPORTANT THINGS (Read first)

Things relevant to this guide.
 

  • You’ll need more than one playtrough to get all achievements, so as previously mentioned, spoiler marked things are read thinking you finished the game once unless said otherwise.
  • Some achievements are get playing normally, so, unless you are using this guide to see the tips or to know how to win a fight (in the future) I think it’s better that you experience the game normally first before trying to get 100%, but the choice is yours.
  • Some achievements are only obtainable in Combat or Mixed mode, I don’t specifiy it in all of the ones that are.
  • I’m omitting the achievement’s descriptions, except for the hidden ones.
  • I’m releasing this guide without all the fights section, that’s because 3 things: 1. I want that people can at least have help with the other achievements while I’m finishing that parts 2. While I as doing this guide, other person make their own guide about the fights, so, if I want to put that here too I want it to make it useful even if you read the other one 3. Fights are the hardest (and RNG-est) thing in this game, so, the way I want to do the sections will take time and effort that I don’t have at the moment of publishing this guide, I apologize and hope you understand.

 
 
 

General battle tips

The non-hidden fights achievements doesn’t let you use your things gained, so some of this only will apply to the other fights.
 
 

  • Use Boost always you think is needed, that is mostly all the time, however there’s some spells that doesn’t benefit always by the Boost, so check on that, however don’t be afraid to use it
  • Most of the time it’s convenient to have your 2 characters in the same square, so try to do that while it work, just take into account sometimes it’s better to not too.
  • There’s one Style that is absolutely superior to the other ones in utility, if you ever felt without options try that one and it can help a lot. Style and why: Shield, got in one Exploration, it haves the best defense, so you recieve the least damage, and while itself it doesn’t have much damage, it always do 10 points of damage no matter the defense of the enemy if you can push them to a wall. You can cheese all fights with this style .
  • DON’T use aggresive behavior with a ranged Spell or Style, the AI isn’t smart enough to left 1 square so the turn and stamina would go into waste
  • Almost all fights have a RNG factor, some more than other, sometimes it’s just needed to repeat a fight until you have good luck.
  • Get the máximum slots in Spells and Styles the sooner you can, you’ll really need them-

 
[Feel free to tell in the comment any other tip so I can put it here]
 
 
 

Survive The Memories

The combat in this game is peculiar to say it in a way, that’s why I understand how even the tutorial fight can be difficult to some people, so the strategy is:
 
 
Just use boost all the time, go trough the right to the upper part of the map, put the behavior to aggressive to the mysterious figure and attack until you win.
 
 
 

Survive The Past

This battle is a special one, since no matter how much progress you have made in Styles and Magic previous to this fight, you can use only the Dagger and the start magic trio, but don’t worry, once you know what to do it’s easy, and slow, at least the way I found (Actually, while doing this guide I found how to do it optimally lol, so it’s the way explained).
 
 
Ok, so, the enemies will always split in the 2 directions at turn one, if you try to follow one of them you can’t get to him even with boost, the next turn, he will run again, and at the end of the turn he will teleport to the same square the other is. Trying to follow the same is futile since you can never reach it, so you’ll be just using resistance slowly, and making an eternal loop.
 
 
First of all, it’s necessary to always have the 2 characters together, they receive less damage, and make this work.
 
 
The enemies always follow the same pattern unless they see an opportunity to attack/end you (The principal way to to trigger this is getting Punished), when this happens the nearest one would go for the character that had the opening, the other will teleport to that square, and they will beat you with full force. So we will use the fact that they follow a pattern to our advantage.
 
 
To start, You SHOULN’T use the magic that works distantly, the enemies always are defending with boost, so, using that type of magic will end with your characters Punished or almost, and doing very little damage.
 
 
So, what’s the plan then? We should follow one (using the boost and attacking to move the max without using too much resistance) until he teleport. Which one? for the way they move the easiest one to do is following the blue first (and the way I will explain) following the red is similar, but trust me, it’s more difficult, so follow the blue, and next turn after the teleport you will be hitting red, since they follow a pattern you can either change attitude to aggressive or move to the square he would end, since, again, pattern. Use the boosted attacks only, since you gonna attack melee and he will be still defending.
 
 
After hitting him follow him again, he will teleport and you change targets again, hit the other now, and the next turn: meditate, yeah, right there, ignore him, at this point you barely have resistance left, since he will run again neither of them will damage you. Next turn, meditate again and one of them will appear in front of you, change attitudes and switch to boosted attack again and he will be at the verge of death.
 
 
To end, move just two squares to the left, the other will end in it and his pair will teleport there, you can even use your best attack if you want. Congratulations, achievement got.
 
 
 

General tips

Here some tips that can help you:
 

  1. The best moment to train and study is between explorations, since doing those one right after other raise the tension, so the days you explore you can train or study instead of events if you have the time.
  2. “Check arround” and “Mall” exploration events never disappear, and doesn’t unlock new areas. However, they have their own utilities, so check them at least one time and only repeat them when you need it.
  3. Because some reasons, getting achievements is a lot easier after finishing the game at least once, I invite you to found why if you already didn’t.
  4. Save before every “!” marked event and/or at all decisions moments, this is useful in almost all of them, however, I don’t recommend seeing what were the other options outcomes before finishing the game (Unless you die, of course), since I think that can abate the experience a little.

 
And a special tip: There is one scene in which depending of the outcome the events of the story change, I will not elaborate further to avoid spoilers, but it can help to know this if you want to do completion yourself.
 
 
 

Visualize Your Life

This one is one of the reasons you have to replay the game to get all, most of the images unlock by just playing the game until the end. Coming up next, how to get the rest of them:
 
 

  1. Seeing all the fight scenes, almost all have images.
  2. Deciding to see in the hobbies side event.

 
And that’s it, if you’re struggling I will further explain with spoilers, but before reading them remember the Special tip if you still want to try, that as itself could be great help if you’re not considering it. In any case, here the specific explanations.
 
 
1. You can only unlock “One fight more” if you beat “Another fight” first. To beat “Another fight” first you have to not fight and not die in the “Walk next to the river” scene; to more specific instructions on how to unlock “One fight more” check the Rosemary’s trust achievement, needed to unlock that fight. .
 
 
2. The hobbies scene (like others) change depending of your 1st fight, and both variations have images, so if you already see one, see the other. Also, I don’t think I have to tell you to choose the option to see :] .
 
 
 

Listen Your Life

Kinda similar to Visualize Your Life, you have to replay the game to get it, most of the songs unlock by just playing the game until the end. Coming up next, how to get the rest of them:
 
 

  1. Seeing all the fight scenes until the end, almost all have unique songs.
  2. Seeing Main, Side, and Exploration events if you see too few of them maybe you can miss some song, improbable, but I’m mentioning it anyway.

 
If you don’t know how to get to a fight remember the special tip.
 
 
 

Recall Your Skills

A very hard one, there’s a good quantity of styles. 10 in total (<- Number if you want to know). There’s 5 forms (and half) to get new styles. (Spoilers here are for the styles or any other thing indicated, not the general plot).
 
 
1. Story: You start with the Dagger, and early you’re given Sword and Spear. 3 less that you have to worry.
 
 
2. Exploration: You can get 2 trough exploration, one simply by completing an specific event, and other one kinda the same, with the difference that you’ll need to have an specific object with you. Those styles are respectively:
 

  • Shield, probably the most useful
  • Crossbow Clue to get it: The object is a projectile . Direct answer: Get the arrows in the lost items, doesn’t have to be your 1st object

3. The rifle: This style have an unique way to get it, how to do it it’s in the respective achievement.
 
 
The other 2 ways are more special, one is missable in your first playtrough, and the other need an achievement, below those in spoiler if you want to try to get them yourself.
 
 
4. Trusts: Some characters can unlock you an style if you get close enough to them, you can check which ones and how in the general trusts tips
 
 
5. The “Reverie” achievement unlocks the last style
 
 
 

Recall Your Knowledge

Personally, the hardest achievement, there’s a considerable number of spells 16 (<- Number if you want to know). There’s 6 forms (Or maybe 5 and half too, depending of how you see it). (Spoilers here are for the spells or any other thing indicated, not the general plot).
 
 
1. Story: You start with 3 Spells: Enhancement, Shock and Grenade, in a Main Event needed to advance the story you’ll learn other one: First Aid . 4 less that you have to worry.
 
 
2. Studying: Studying not only gives you more Spell slots, it also upgrade the initial ones, every few sessions of studying at a time that you didn’t unlocked a new spell slot the game would ask you which one you want to upgrade, and every one counts as an individual spell. The names are: Fortify, Thunder and Bomb .
 
 
3. Exploring: There are two spells unlocked by completing an specific event, those 2 are: Bastion and Reject .
 
 
4/Half. Story AND Exploring: Trough exploration evens you can find some books that; if you didn’t reached some point in story you can’t understand, so the spell/s would unlock until that; and if you already did it the spells would unlock at the moment you get the book/s. At that event you learn one Watchman circle independently if you have the books or not, and other 2 if/when you have them: Paralyzing circle and Explosive circle .
 
 
The other 2 ways are more special, one is missable in your first playtrough, and the other need an achievement, below those in spoiler if you want to try to get them yourself.
 
 
5. Trusts: Some characters can unlock you a spell if you get close enough to them, you can check which ones and how in the general trusts tips .
 
 
6. The “Reverie” achievement unlocks the last spell .
 
 
 

Gain Your Strength

One of the easiest, you probably know how to do it, just training until the game tells you that you reached the maximum, Tip 1 would definitely help.
 
 
 

Gain Your Education

Other of the easiest, you probably know how to do it, just studying until the game tells you that you reached the maximum, Tip 1 would help here too obviously.
 
 
 

Discover The World

This one is slightly more “difficult”, but is easy enough. Let me explain.
 
 
Most areas are unlocked exploring other areas first (But remember Tip 2), however, some Main Events unlock areas, here those mentioned events:
 
 

  • Pursuit
  • Sweet case
  • Behind the mountain
  • Sharing secrets*

 
The area that “Sharing secrets” unlock is special, if after that event you know the password you’ll enter, however if you don’t, well, you can’t, but worry not, since there are other ways to know it, so choose the option you want, and if you choose to not, just do secondary events and or advance the story and you’ll get it eventually.
 
 
 

General Trusts’ tips

This game have a system that… I would try to explain it, but, we all know it’s the equivalent of P̷̺̼͆e̵̢̜͠r̴̮̺͑s̶̼͕͗͊o̴͖̱͒̌ṉ̸͂a̴̼͐͘ ̷̳͛̓S̶̹̜̀o̴̯͛ć̸̡̘́i̴̪̠͝à̸̻̩l̵̦̈ ̴̣͐͑L̸̨̓͠I̴̻̒ṋ̶̢̅ķ̷̺͗͛s̷̰̃ that mechanic of the games with teenagers that have Fighting Spirits in which you made friends and then you beat monsters with the power of friendship.
 
 
Here doesn’t make your Malaks stronger but you still get to know the characters more. The top is supposedly three hearts, however if you make enough effort you can get a four heart, and when you do it an achievement for each character will be given.
 
 
How to get hearts is initially easy, by doing Main Events related to the character some of them give you one, however by only doing this you can’t get the four, doing Side Events makes more main events related to the characters appear. With some characters a final main event would appear and you will get their four heart, but it varies. It’s also important to remark that in all cases you need to do all their respective Main Events and most if not all Side Events, independently of other circumstances.
 
 
Those are the basics, buuut, it can’t be that easy; exploration gives you main events so doing those events are necessary for all characters, which ones varies; sometimes even side events not related to the character can make appear side or main events, reasons varies, but usually it’s just that it’s a event with the two or more of them; there’s too the thing that sometimes you’ll need to advance story first to get the previously mentioned last events; and also, I have the theory that it must pass a day to some Main Events to appear even if the criteria was met.
 
 
And even then, depending of the character you maybe will need to do something extra, or not.
 
 
It’s possible to get some four hearts without doing the specific thing, but at the same time, if you do that specific thing you’ll get a prize, I’ll try to not say what is here, but for if you already know, or if you read it at some part of the guide, or if you just naturally deducted it based on what you have seen in the guide I’ll put what prize they give.
 
 
Just one last thing before that, after finishing the game, you can get advice for itself to get the 4Hs of those that you didn’t already have, so if you don’t want to use the guide try with that.
 
 
Prizes of the characters (Contain spoilers of the game, read at your own risk)
 
Columbine: Style: Revolver
 
Helio: Spell: Illusion
 
Rosemary: Spell: Reflected Forge
 
Rue: Style: Judo
 
Thistle: His style and spells upgrade
 
Violet: Spell: Inferno
 
 
And for last, these achievements instructions are gonna be very similar and maybe repetitive, that’s because they’re meant to be read in any order or you just can read one without reading the others.
 
 
I almost forgot, you can get all trusts in one playtrough if you have enough time (Tension left).
 
 
 

Columbine’s Trust

The first one is Columbine, the lovely (but a little, well somewhat creppy) stalker that needs to care more about herself, it’s possible get her 4Hs by just doing her Main and Side Events, but, to get her prize (and depending of the situation, the 4Hs) you have to do a little extra thing.
 
 
In case you just want to know how to get the prize, I will put it directly here In “Sharing Secrets” tell her you don’t need her to tell you the password. Then continuing doing events related to her until it appears “Columbine’s Secret” in the main ones. . Note: It’s both the same what the game say and what I mention later in the guide.
 
 
Now I’m going to describe exactly how to get her 4Hs.
 
 
The 1st thing to start with Columbine is the Main Event “Pursuit”, in this one you have to take a decision, I really recommend saving here, if the option you take doesn’t work load and choose other, after choosing the scene would continue and if you choose right you’ll get her 1H.
 
 
After that you can do “Sharing Secrets”, here appart for being the scene that you can get the achievement “Who is who?”, after the questions an unrelated one to that achievement would appear, this would lead in you getting the prize and/or the 4H, or not, choose the one you think Columbine would appreciate more ( “No, there’s no need” <- Correct answer). After the scene ends you get her 2H.
 
 
Next, after having to doing other main events and explorations, you have to do a “!” scene, this is the scene that change the story’s course depending of what you do, so it affects the way you get character’s hearts. I will put in in spoiler, so you read it after finishing the scene.
 
 
Case 1 You fought : You got the 3H for free, to get the 4H AND the prize you’ll need to do some Side Events (principally hers, if there’s no more left try to do others and can appear more), until the “Columbine’s Secret” main event appears; I think explorations, and Main Events are not needed, but sometimes after doing all the other things they help somehow anyway, so feel free to try if running out of options .
 
 
Case 2 You didn’t fight : First advance the story until you complete the next “!” event (The “Nexus” one isn’t needed, I’m referring to the other one). After that, to the 3H, do Main and Side Events (principally hers, if there’s no more left try to do others and can appear more; “!” are not needed), until the “Columbine’s Secret” main event appears. 4th would be obtained trough story so essentially this is the last. I’m not sure if explorations, and Main Events are needed, but sometimes after doing all the other things they help somehow, so feel free to try if running out of options .
 
 
And just like that you’d have obtained the stalker’s trust and gift.
 
 
 

Helio’s Trust

The next one is the nervous (and awkard) aspirant of hero, it’s possible get his 4Hs by just doing his Main and Side Events, but, to get his prize (and depending of the situation, the 4Hs) you have to do a little extra thing.
 
 
In case you just want to know how to get the prize, I will put it directly here In “Hospital” ask him to keep secret what happened. Then continuing doing events related to him until it appears “Helios’s Secret” in the main ones. . Note: It’s the same what I mention later in the guide, but I don’t remember what the game tells you, and can’t see it again, however is probably similar.
 
 
Now I’m going to describe exactly how to get his 4Hs.
 
 
To start getting close to Helio you have to start with the Main Event “Hospital”, here you would need to decide something, depending of the choice you can get the prize or not, if you want it I would recommend trust Helio ( “Ask him to…” <- Correct answer). After the scene you get his 1H.
 
 
Next, after having to do other main events and explorations, you have to do a “!” scene, this is the scene that change the story’s course depending of what you do, so it affects the way you get character’s hearts. However, his 2H will be got if you finish the scene in any case. I will put in in spoiler, so you read it after finishing the scene.
 
 
Case 1 You fought : After finishing the scene you can do two main events of him, only one would give you the 3H, but both are needed for the 4H AND the prize, after that you’ll need to do some Side Events (principally of him, if there’s no more left try to do others and can appear more) until the “Helio’s Secret” main event appears; I’m not sure if explorations, and Main Events are needed, but sometimes after doing all the other things they help somehow, so feel free to try if running out of options .
 
 
Case 2 You didn’t fight : First advance the story until you complete the next “!” event (The “Nexus” one isn’t needed, I’m referring to the other one). After that, to the 3H, do Main and Side Events (principally of him, if there’s no more left try to do others and can appear more; “!” are not needed), until the “Helio’s Secret” main event appears. 4th would be obtained trough story so essentially this is the last. I’m not sure if explorations, and Main Events are needed, but sometimes after doing all the other things they help somehow, so feel free to try if running out of options .
 
 
And just like that you’d have obtained the hero’s trust and gift.
 
 
 

Rosemary’s Trust

The next one is the, to put it simple and as she would probably said it, the gorgeous and perfect scientist, oh my god, this is the hardest trust to get, you have to do some specific things to get the achievement, at the very least her prize is given if you do everything without necessity to do something extra (unless there’s one specific condition that can prevent it and I didn’t triggered somehow after doing a lot of different replays).
 
 
I will try to resume as always if you doesn’t want to see the entire section, but I will warn that this achievement will have spoilers, so, for a lot of reasons I really recommend you to try this one after finishing the game at least once. So, back to the point, the TL;DR Don’t fight or die in “Walk next to the river” and also get the Pendant in the lost items as 1st object just in case; Confront her when you can The 1st sentence is what the game tell you but I’m saying it explicitly, the rest is complementary.
 
 
First 2Hs are easy, even too much, do “Monolith” and “Gathering memories”, order doesn’t matter.
 
 
Now, this thing I’m almost sure isn’t needed, but, it’s like an extra and just in case, in the first exploration segment “Checking the castle”, you can choose to keep a lost item, choose the Pendant, you can change it later if you need other thing, but got it back after you finish.
 
 
After this continue doing things until you unlock a “!” event, in that one you have to choose to Don’t fight and also don’t die <- What you have to do, read once you’re there. If you want further explanation with general plot spoilers By choosing to not fight the first battle would be against Rue and Violet, keeping Helio and Columbine alive in the 2nd half to the game, thing needed to the achievement, also this is what the clue the game give means. And other thing, I’m almost sure too that you doesn’t need the trust of those two to this achievement, but if you want to play safe try .
 
 
Now do all the Main Events you have left and other things until you can continue the story, go trough it until you have new Main Events to do and then do “Another Investigation” to get the 3H.
 
 
At last, do all her Side Events until the “Rosemary’s Secret” main event appears, with that you got her 4Hs!… right? As you can (or would) notice the achievement doesn’t pop, in fact, you can get to this point still in the other “route” after that “!” scene, but to truly get her trust you have to do a little more.
 
 
Keep playing until the next “!” event that isn’t “Nexus” (in fact you have to finish it so the other can unlock), and go trough it, advance until you have to choose and choose Rosemary, then you have to answer some things, I will put the answers in spoilers in case you want to figure out yourself (even if maybe I spoiled it here unintentionally, sorry I cannot not).
 
 
Answer “Neck”
 
If it pops a second question “Lost Items”
 
 
And after that, you know what to do, go trough it, and once you did it…
 
 
Just like that you’d have obtained the scientist’s trust and gift.
 
 
 

Rue’s Trust

The next one is the incredibly apathetic (and yet sometimes cocky and/or foolish) sweet lover detective, it’s not possible to get his 4Hs by just doing his Main and Side Events, however it’s very easy to get them, it’s just that is equally easy to not, at least if you got his 4H you got his prize for sure too.
 
 
In case you just want to know how to get the prize (and 4H), I will put it directly here In “Sweet case” say that “Yes” when he ask if you ate the bar . Note: It’s both the same what the game say and what I mention later in the guide.
 
 
Now I’m going to describe exactly how to get his 4Hs.
 
 
The first thing to know Rue better is doing Exploration events, until you have the “Near west” one unlocked, once you do it you’ll have the “Sweet case” Main event unlocked, in that one you’ll have to take a decision, this one would determine if you can get the 4Hs and the prize or not, as a clue I will just say the same someone very reliable once said “The key to good communication might be honesty”, pretty obvious, I know, but I put it anyway. In any case you get his 1H at the end of the event.
 
 
After that event you’ll find other Rue related one in the Mains, do it and you get the 2H.
 
 
Next, after having to doing other main events and explorations, you have to do a “!” scene, this is the scene that change the story’s course depending of what you do, so it affects the way you get character’s hearts. I will put in in spoiler, so you read it after finishing the scene.
 
 
Case 1 You fought : In this case, firs you’ll have to advance the story until you complete the next “!” event (The “Nexus” one isn’t needed, I’m referring to the other one). After that, to the 3H, do Main and Side Events (principally of him, if there’s no more left try to do others and can appear more; “!” are not needed), until the “Rue’s Secret” main event appears. 4th would be obtained trough story so essentially this is the last. I’m not sure if explorations, and Main Events are needed, but sometimes after doing all the other things they help somehow, so feel free to try if running out of options.
 
 
Case 2 You didn’t fight : In this case, one of the scenes gives you the 3H. After that, to the 4H, do Main and Side Events (principally of him, if there’s no more left try to do others and can appear more; “!” are not needed), until the “Rue’s Secret” main event appears. I’m not sure if explorations, and Main Events are needed, but sometimes after doing all the other things they help somehow, so feel free to try if running out of options .
 
 
And just like that you’d have obtained the detective’s trust and gift.
 
 
 

Thistel’s Trust

The next one is the carefree but firm professor and leader of the castle, it’s easily possible to get his 4Hs by just doing his Main and Side Events, and you get his prize by just doing this too, making him the easiest to get the achievement, you probably got the achievement if you finished the game, but I’m making this section anyway.
 
 
I have no idea what the game says as clue to get his 4Hs since there’s no way to see the clue once you get the achievement, but this is going to be quick, so I hope you don’t mind.
 
 
In any case I’m going to describe exactly how to get his 4Hs since there’s one event that doesn’t unlock by just doing Main and Side Events.
 
 
First, you have to make explorations until you completed “Castle’s Walls” (this one unlocked after doing the Main Event “Pursuit”), after this you will unlock the “Tabletop game” Side Event, completing it gives you his 1H.
 
 
The next one comes from story at the same time, independently of your actions in the scene that changes the story.
 
 
For the next do Side Events (principally of him, if there’s no more left try to do others and can appear more), until it appears a Main Event that after finishing it it gives you the 3H.
 
 
The last one is from Story. I’m not sure if explorations, and Main Events are needed, but sometimes after doing all the other things they help somehow, so feel free to try if running out of options, just take into account “!” aren’t needed after getting the 2H.
 
 
And just something with Spoilers of the plot before finishing, you can read if you already beat your 1st fight that’s not the tutorial or the Nexus one and you have the Tension to 0 again. Thistle doesn’t give neither a Style or a Spell, however he has a “prize”, or rather prizes, after Fennel comes to the castle, after doing enough Side Events of him his own Styles and Spells upgrade, and if you got the 3Hs, they will update again when you got the 4H. Also, the last line will be identical to the others even if he doesn’t gives you a gift just to avoid accidentally spoiling . And that’s everything.
 
 
Just like that you you’d have obtained the leader’s trust and gift.
 
 
 

Violet’s Trust

The next one is the motherly and teasing cook of the castle, it’s the easiest character to get the 4H, you only need to do one thing, or rather not doing one thing and doing her Main and Side Events, if you get the 4H, you get the prize.
 
 
In case you just want to know the thing you shouldn’t do, I will put it directly here Just don’t tell Thistle anything about her . Note: It’s the same what the game say, and I will not put it again, read it at any moment you want.
 
 
Normally I describe exactly how to do it, but, for real, just do all her Main and Side Events, and there’s one that always come for story, depending of the “!” scene that change the story the heart comes later or sooner, but it always comes. But, there’s one important thing that I must mention.
 
 
To get the extra/4th Heart you need to got to do the “Violet’s Secret” event, this event is also the one that the achievement “Ace the test” is referring to, so this is also the way to have the possibility to get the achievement, but don’t worry, that achievement isn’t needed to this one or the prize.
 
 
And just like that you’d have obtained the motherly woman’s trust and gift.
 
 
 

Hidden achievement: If you know, you know

Description of the achievement: Obtain FENNEL’s four hearts.
 
 
After an unfortunate series of events that close the first half of the game, before Cinque could make any question we found an unexpected guest in the castle: Fennel, the famous heroine is here, and now is one more of the castle inhabitants.
 
 
The last character is the egocentric, sometimes bratty, and yet almighty heroine; (I know her achievement isn’t in this position, but I think it fits better here); it’s possible get her 4Hs by just doing her Main and Side Events, but, to get her prize you should be especially close to her, meaning that you need to do all her Side Events, just that simple.
 
 
Her hearts are easy, the first is for free, “Hobbies” gives you other, “Photograph” gives another more, then do all the other Main Events and “Selfish Union” would be unlocked, and that’s the 4H
 
 
For the prize just do all of her Side Events and you’ll get it trough story.
 
 
And, just like that you got the heroine’s trust and gift.
 
 
 

Who Is Who?

If you finish the game, at the end you’ll know the answers, and, if you want all achievements you have to replay anyway, so, try to really guess, it will be more satisfactory if you nail it.
 
 
 

Solve The Mystery

This scene is really cool, you have to analyze all the information you gathered trough the other investigation segments and see if you know what happened.
 
 
First of all, save before answering, If you fail the multiple option answers Cinque would correct herself so you can try one time by yourself until you get to the part when you have to write an answer, and if you didn’t choose all the right ones, load to the 1st one and do it right, I’m going to put all answers anyway, but just saying that there’s an actual ingame for to do it; tough, if you fail the last answer the game won’t tell it to you, but at least you have 3 opportunities.
 
 
Below the answers (they are in spoilers so you only see them if you want, but it doesn’t spoil anything that you shouldn’t know IF you already are in that scene), and before the last one a clue if you just need a little help.
 
 
1. A little before…
 
2. In the castle
 
3. Thistle
 
4. Gunshot
 
5. You did not…
 
Clue to last: It’s possible to see in the night thanks to something
 
7/Last. Moon or moonlight
 
 
 

Ace The Test

First of all, how to get the test scene is in “Violet’s Trust” achievement.
 
 
To get this achievement you would have to do 3 things:
 
 
1. Have all Spell’s Slots, just having the respective achievement doesn’t count, you need to have them in the current playtrough, and for that you need Combat or Mixed mode active.
 
 
2. Have all Style’s Slots, it applies the same of the previous point respectively. Tip 1 is useful for both things.
 
 
3. Have the most hearts possible with the other characters, however, if it’s your first playtrough is possible that this can’t be done, either for not enough time, or you did it and it doesn’t seem to work, I recommend doing this achievement in a replaying, and if that’s the case, there’s one “route” of the game that makes it easier (in regard of the special tip). However you’re free to try to doing it first try, if you do it you’ll have my respect.
 
 
 

Did You Take A Peek?

Another easy one, after you meet the castle inhabitants, at some point, Helio would try to talk to you, however, certain person would be accidentally distracting you, choose to ignore that all the time and Helio would be impressed (and you’ll get the achievement).
 
 
 

Get The Rifle

This one is fun, and the prize is totally worth. (Spoilers here aren’t about the plot, just about the scenes mentioned here)
 
 
As you know there’s a rifle in the training ground that no one wants to take ’cause bla bla bla, you know the deal, however with enough ability and some time it’s possible to take it yourself without anyone noticing. It’s a little specific to do but you can figure it yourself easy enough without need of this guide, however, if you want to have it soonest as possible, let me explain.
 
 
First of all, the exploration scenes are the key, so you have to do them (Remember Tip 1, you’ll need styles’ slots anyway) until you unlock the Main Scene “Sweet case”, and you visited “Near North” and “Far east” (I’ll get to this later), after completing Near North the “Mall” location would be now available to explore.
 
 
In Sweet case you receive something one of the keys of the security room , this is necessary to get the rifle without anyone noticing, however this thing alone doesn’t work, since you need the other keys , but, in the mall you can duplicate that thing you received, so even if you lose the original you can still do the thing, and that’s the next step.
 
 
Once you did the previous, you now have to “Check around” (Yeah, these are the utilities I mentioned in Tip 2), Sweet case gave you other thing: The possibility to exchange your thing for the others, however, it’s similar to explore, it can rise tension if you do it right after, for the way the game say it I think you have to left one full day in between, in any case after this you can go to the mall again and copy the new thing. (To the mall visit the explore rules still applies, so, yeah, remember Tip 1).
 
 
Now after that you just have to exchange things one more time, I don’t think it’s necessary to copy again, but I did it anyway, now you can technically take the rifle, HOWEVER, there’s a problem, if it disappears people would notice the ausense even if no one see you take it, but, if you already visited Far east, you know this actually is no problem.
 
 
Now Check around, go to the training round, and at the next battle you’ll have heavy artillery.
 
 
 

Don’t Let Your Memories Perish

It sounds easy, but is a little tricky. First, yeah, it doesn’t involve dying in battle, so don’t take into account those.
 
 
Ok so, there’s 2 ways of dying outside of battle: Main events or Tension raised too much.
 
 
For the 1st one, there’s a total of 5 dialogue options that ends in Cinque dying, so just try all options until you get the 5 ways, they can be similar but counts as differents.
 
 
And Tension raised, there are different of these Game Overs, the one you get is random and there are more or less depending of what part of the game are you, and what “route” you take in regards of the special tip. So, save just before the bar is full and let a Game Over appear, load and do it again, remember to try the previously mentioned variations and repeat until the achievement pops.
 
 
 

Survive

The description is self explanatory enough. If you’re struggling to the Final Fight, I’m sorry, I will put eventually the section of how to beat it.
 
 
 

Hidden achievement: After Survive

Description: Purposely didn’t put here, just read the next paragraph
 
 
Hooooooooooooooooooooooooo boy, this is one of the hardest, first of all, after finishing the game for the first time a new button in the main menu will appear, you have to enter there first thing, so, go see it if you already don’t. This can wait.
 
 
——————————————–
 
 
Any question about what happened to Keinart or in the disscusions page, anyway, now your objective is to get all characters four hearts, it doesn’t have to be in the same playtrough, you basically need to get the “Trust”s achievements, if you enter ??? again you’ll get advice of how to do this; if you want to get it quickly, you get stuck at one character, or want a little help or tip check the “General Trusts tips” or any specific achievement. If not, good luck.
 
 
Once you did the previous, do as you were told and finish the game once again, and hear the question. Achievement get.
 
 
 

Reverie

You need to get the previous achievement, and for default, have finished the game. Once you continue reading.
 
 
Actually to get this you need to finish the game at least 2 times if you know exactly what to do since the start, but that’s not fun, 3 or 4 depending of the person in the other case, I deviated from the topic, sorry, I just thought it was curious.
 
 
To get the achievement go to ??? after seeing the secret ending and see until the end.
 
 
This time I think we actually have to answer our questions between ourselves, we should debate about it some time. Also, if you want to see it again (since after it ??? is not in the menu again) you should finish the game, again, and it would re-appear, 1st time after that it jumps the dialogue of the 1st time you entered in general, enter again and there it is.

 
 
 

Thanks

And that’s my Tips & all achievements guide of Lotus Reverie: First Nexus. I wanted to did it because I tought is kinda difficult to navigate the discussion page or having to make your own thread. I’m sorry it took so long and it isn’t complete, but replaying the game so many times to try to make the least mistakes possible is a little strenuous, in any case I hope I can help others with this guide.
 
 
Thanks to Rei flw and ShadowninjaHD for their help in the discussions page, the information was very useful.
 
 
Thanks to Keinart Lobre too, the game even with its problem is very enjoyable, I’m excited for the next games.
 
 
And at last, thank you very much to anyone who read this guide, either just a part or everything.
 
 
I won’t forget.
