[top]Introduction

Welcome to the Tales of Graces f trophy guide. In this guide I will be detailing how to get every trophy in the game and what you will need to complete them. Tales of Graces f is the PS3 exclusive expansion to Tales of Graces; originally on the Wii. It adds another 10+ hours of story and gameplay after you complete the main story arc. The arc afterward is called the "Future Arc" and that is where the f in Tales of Graces f comes from.

Tales of Graces f is no short game. If your aren't aiming for the platinum it could easily leave you playing for hours and hours. However if you keep focused you can get the platinum between 100-150 hours. Though the list may look daunting at first, it is relatively straight forward and the only trophy you'll really have to go out of your way for is " A Gentlemanly Triumph" which can be easily missed due to one side quest. This one trophy will make or break you if you are trying to do everything in one playthrough. Those not looking to do it in one playthrough, it's still good to know what you'll need to do for it.

I won't be listing where any of the side events, skits, and how to go through any dungeons so I highly suggest you follow a walkthrough guide that will point these out or how to complete them because some of these will help you gain more Grade in the end to purchase options in the Grade Shop for New Game+. I highly suggest following Kurusu's walkthrough guide Here. Since I've made my guide originally, the place Kurusu had the guide on the tales forums seems to have disappeared so I've updated my guide to point towards the other location, however it more than likely isn't up to date with all the English names and such.


[top]Tips & Strategies

WHAT TO PICK FROM THE GRADE SHOP FOR NEW GAME+

DUALIZING

Dualizing is one of the bigger aspects of the game that you may choose not to bother with unless you are playing on higher difficulties or just trying to get all the inn requests out of the way. Dualizing is fairly simple once you know how it works. You take one item and combine it with another to create an item or to change the quality of a weapon. There are tons of items you can make in this game, and weapons can be continually dualized til +99.

Upgrading weapons can be a bit confusing at first, but once you kno
w how it works you'll have no problem afterward. First you need to dualize one weapon with a shard and then after you have to temper the weapon. To temper a weapon, fight a couple of battles and at the post-battle screen it will tell you when it's done tempering. Once it's tempered you will now need another tempered weapon to combine with the one you just tempered, combine those two together and you will receive a gem with the quality of those two weapons combined. Now you are free to dualize those weapons over and over again til +99.

Another tip for easy dualizing is when you are in the dualize menu; items that are lettered green are items that have an option to be dualized and making an item that you haven't made yet. This only happens when you have all the items in question to make that item. So if you just want to go dualize crazy, there is your easy way to tell if you can make something new or not.

PREPARING FOR BOSS BATTLES
If your playing on anything other than easy you'll know that some bosses can be incredibly tough. Here are some general battle tips that will help you to fight any boss in the game. As long as you prepare these tactics ahead of time you'll have a much easier time with bosses cause last thing you want is to have a headache in trying to figure out how to defeat a boss for hours on end.

1. Learn and master quick-stepping/dashing/dodging. This option is here for you to use and abuse. If you master quick-stepping you'll never get hit and you will always have CC to attack. You can quick-step by pressing
square and the left directional stick in the direction you wish to go. Depending on the enemies you may want to dash backward instead of side to side in case their attacks hit in a 360 range, meanwhile enemies that only have straight attacks are better off dashing to the side.

2. Hit enemy weaknesses. All enemies in the game have some and if you spend time switching out attacks for ones that hit for their weakness you'll notice the battle going much faster. To check enemy weaknesses, press R1. Then go into your artes and look for any attacks that hit for that weakness and either put it in one of your slots or remember the arrows for that A arte string.

3. Equip titles that fit your needs for the battle. Some battles call for donning titles that make hitting specific enemy weaknesses even more deadly than they would be without the title. Maybe another will need you to take on more defense, or make you healer cast faster and better. There are tons of titles to take advantage of, don't forget about them.

4. Use hourglasses. It can help you pull out of a bad situation or a nicely timed hourglass shortly before an Eleth Burst can allow your party to hit a high combo before the burst, and send it soaring once the burst activates. This will lead to longer Eleth Bursts and stronger Mystic Arte attacks.

5. Change the battle strategies of your AI characters. If they aren't playing exactly how you want them to, you can set them to be more passive or aggressive, whether to use only A or B artes, and more. You can also take it one step further by turning on or off their attacks in the Arte menu. Though you can't stop them from using their A artes unless you set them to B only.

6. Keep books or food dishes that will help you in the mixer. There are quite a number of books and food dishes that can help you in battle. Early game you'll find the food dishes that just give health a certain amount to be better while in late game it'll be better to have something that activates when someone is KO'ed. The Book of Satiation will allow you to cook two items in battle. Then you have the Book of Fortitude that will halve your damage for as long as you have Eleth, and it eats it up fast.

7. Dualize your weapons. You may find that to do more damage you'll have to start upgrading your weapons.

8. When all else fails, go grind some levels on the hardest monsters you can find.


[top]Cheats, Glitches, & Exploits

Framerate Drops
After spending time grinding in an area for a long time you will notice severe framerate drops. No, it is not your PS3 but a problem with the game itself so don't worry about your PS3 freezing. If it does freeze it wasn't because of that. The frame rate will return to normal if you leave the area. It also doesn't affect battles so it will be lag free at least there in case you don't want to leave the dungeon you are grinding.

+500 Eleth Glitch
If you use this option in the Grade Shop when you have 9498 or over that amount, the Mixer Maxed trophy will glitch. To avoid this, purchase the option before 9498 capacity.


[top]Roadmap

This roadmap will be a guide to when and where you will get certain trophies. It will be setup for a typical two playthrough run.


First Playthrough

For the first playthrough don't worry much about trophies and complete the game once through. Then maybe pick up some of the Game Clear trophies before or after the future arc/Lineage & Legacies.

Childhood's End
The Lord of Lhant
A Throne Reclaimed
The Sands of Strahta
The Infiltration of Fendel
The Other Side of the Sky
The Fallen Eden
A Pact Fulfilled

Lineage & Legacies

Trophies you may or may not have at the end of this playthrough;
Title Fighter
Title Holder
First Flower
Full Flower
Entitled
Emboldened
Openhearted
Wholehearted
Training Captain
Captain First Class
Sobriquetian
Apellatrix
Richard the Radiant

Richard the Righteous
Game Clear: Moderate
Game Clear: Hard
Game Clear: Evil
Game Clear: Chaos



Second Playthrough

The second playthrough will be most for cleaning up all the 60 second trophies, and inn requests. I highly
suggest when you are back in the future arc/lineage & legacies for a second time to not leave until you have all of Richard's titles. Otherwise you'll have to start another future arc file only for his titles.

Richard the Redeemed
Bryce in 60 Seconds
Queen Slime in 60 Seconds
Richard in 60 Seconds
Dispaters in 60 Seconds
Kurt in 60 Seconds

Polycarpus in 60 Seconds
Lambda in 60 Seconds

Lambda Angelus in 60 Seconds
Fodra Queen in 60 Seconds


Clean Up

After you complete the game and the Future arc/Lineage & Legacies for the second time. It's time for clean up, and hopefully you
got Richard's titles while you still had control of him. The left over stuff you should have to do are leftover titles, completing the Zhonecage, a couple of boss battles, all of the inn requests, and maxing out the mixer.

I won't be explaining the story related trophies as that would put spoilers where they are easily seen. However, I will list in spoiler tags for areas you need to go to to continue the storyline. I won't list anything for side quests and skits, which is why I suggest using Kurusu's guide along side this. Beware, because inside the spoiler tags are spoilers to when you fight certain bosses and locations of where you will be going.

Lineage & Legacies
Completed Chapter 9. Next up: the Zhonecage! The what? Look to the skits for a hint!

To access Lineage & Legacies; also known as the future arc, you will need to have a clear data save file from beating the main game. Yes, Tales of Graces normally is actually only up to the fight with Lamba Angelus. The release of Tales of Graces f brought in a continuation of the story that spans another 10+ more hours for us to enjoy that the Wii version never got to see.

To start the future arc, from the main title menu go to extras, and then Lineage & Legacies and select your cleared data file. This will write over your file, but fear not, everything is safe. Once you complete the future arc you will return back to the final save point in the Ghardia Shaft just before the final boss. While being able to keep everything you earned in the future arc with the exception of Richard.

Gagonged!
Defeated the Rockgagong.

Fighting the Rockagong is different from the rest of the battles you've faught so far. You are timed and you can't Eleth Burst during the battle. I don't suggest fighting it til you are around80+. I didn't fight the Rockagong til my second playthrough when I had all the damage modifiers from the Grade Shop.

There are a couple things you should know if you fight him normally. Be careful with your melee fighters or don't have them in there at all as the Rockagong has an attack that will kill them if they get eaten and they can't be revived afterwards. Other than that the attacks you will need to worry about are the ones when it swipes it's claw across the field, another attack where it will lean back and send a shockwave down the center. These will more than likely one shot kill you, and even more likely to wipe a party if you have the damage modifiers from the grade shop.

You can avoid the swipe attacks by dashing between the openings of it's claws. As for the shockwave move your character to either the left or right to avoid it, however the AI controlling the other characters won't do this so you will have to revive them all after the attack. Once you get halfway you will notice that the Rockagong will get stunned and fall over for a few seconds. You are almost there so keep attacking and being careful for it's attacks.

Since I main Sophie I took a more lazy approach, and it's definitely a lot slower. I decided to keep her back to heal and revive downed characters while my mages went all out. Of course I still had to dodge and such as some of the Rockagong's attacks do reach the back of the field but this still ensured that at least I would have one character left to revive the others. This is definitely a more cautious approach and one I only took it because of my NG+ damage modifiers. It was too risky to keep everyone gathered together. If you aren't using the Grade Shop modifiers you may be more resistant than having them so you'll probably last longer at a higher level.

Rockagong Piggyback Method
I haven't tried this myself personally so I'm not exactly sure on the exact details of this method. The general gist I do understand though is that you have to equip your characters with titles that give "damage taken added to attack", remove all armor and accessories, place books that halve your stats into the Mixer, and then put your difficulty up to the highest setting. This is supposed to take all the damage that you get hit for and use it for your next attack. Once you are in battle you activate Accel attack when you are about to die which will unleash the attack which will result in 999,999 damage. It's also suggested to drop your part down to one member or keep everyone on passive so they don't attack.

You will have to time it correctly to get it to work, but I've heard of people getting this method to work fine with a bit of time to get all the timing right. Since you need the Accel attack you will have to go through the future arc at least once to get the titles to learn the skill.

Cheria:
Title 14 - Dutiful Daughter
Title 16 - Alluring Temptress
Hubert:
Title 15 - Scion of Oswell
Title 16 - Steadfast Denier
Sophie:
Title 15 - Stirred from Detachment

Note: Only Cheria, Sophie, and Hubert have these titles. These are the only titles that I'm aware of with that effect.

Who Were Those Guys, Again?
Defeated Veigue, Reala, and Amber.

To get this trophy you must first complete floors 1-9 in the Zhonecage followed by completing the arena at Riot Peak. Afterwards you will unlock three requests at the Inn there and hand those in. In case you don't have them those items are;
  • Hero Staff: Found in the Sandshroud Ruins
  • Lost Anklet: Obtained from a man in Zavhert Port for having 40 Magic Carta cards
  • Requiem: Obtained from a side quest (The long one with Joe)

The route to find Joe/Side Quest #63;

Toggle Spoiler



Once that is done now go back to the Arena for the Master rank. The only difference here is that you will switch out for every character. Then once that's over with you will fight Veigue, Reala, and Amber. For this fight you should already know how Reala and Amber fight since you faught them already in the Zhonecage. Overall the fight is pretty easy and they seemed a lot weaker compared to when they were in the Zhonecage. Once you beat them you will get the trophy.

[top]
Terma-nated
Defeated Solomus and the Terma Ten.

For this trophy you will need to beat the boss Solomus on the 10th floor of the Zhonecage. To unlock floor 10 you will need to have a weapon that sells for over 200k. The easiest weapons to make for this is a Dreamer's Flange which you can make from a Rare Shotstaff and a High Grade Crystal. Since you need to make this weapon for an Inn Request as well you might as well hit two birds with one stone. For the Inn Request you need to make a Perilous Dreamer's Flange, so if you have a shard to turn it into Perilous all you would have to do is dualize it and be on your way. If you don't you will have to find the shard nature that will change it.

However be careful as losing in the Zhonecage means you lose the item sacrificed to enter the floor. I made two different Flange's so I could grind the enemies on that floor and not worry about if I died an hour into grinding, but that way the one needed for the Inn Requests didn't get damaged. You can always reload the file and try again.

As for Solomus you will probably want to be a fairly high level to fight him. When I first got to him I was around level 90-ish and he just nuked my entire party in pretty much one shot since I have the damage modifiers on my NG+ file. So I went back and grinded in the Zhonecage and by time I got back to him I was around level 140 and he was pretty much a joke on Easy. I probably could've killed him on hard or higher at the level I was at, but yes, it's easy to be lazy with the bosses in this game.

The key though in this battle is to keep his attention focused on one character while the others heal and attack. Always make sure you dash away from his attacks and just keep a steady stream of attacks on him. At the halfway mark he will spawn copies of himself which are just as equally deadly as himself. Try to get rid of them asap and then continue attacking him for the rest of his health. Once you defeat him the trophy will pop.

[top]
One with Oblivion
Defeated Lambda Theos. Impressive!

After you defeat Solomus in the Zhonecage, Lambda Theos will replace Lamba Angelus at the final battle. Theos is really the same thing as Angelus but more powered up. Just play like you are fighting Angelus and the battle will be over in no time. Theos should be a lot easier to fight compared to Solomus.

[top]
A Gentlemanly Triumph
Defeated a true Gentleman. Good show!

This trophy is missable

This will no doubt take you the most work to do out of all the trophies in the game. You will need to complete all of the Inn requests from every town. Which requires you to bring back certain items and they are items you have to dualize for. Some of the materials are more difficult to get the further in you go as you will need to have certain towns stamp levels to 8 for the Rare type weapons.

Aside from having high stamp levels for towns you will also need to complete up to the 9th floor of the Zhonecage then complete the arena at Riot Peak to unlock requests that only appear after you have completed those requirements. Since you will be dualizing weapons for the Inn Requests you should always try to have Legendary, Rare, and Common Metal in your mixer and you will need them to make crystals to use to make new weapons.

This trophy is missable because there is one request that will disappear if you go into the Ghardia Shaft at the end of the game. You will need to hand in the beloved handkerchief before you head there or you will have to start a NG+ and start all over from scratch to do this trophy again. However as long as you get this out of the way you will be safe. Here is how to get it below;

How to start the missable quest;
To start this side quest you need to be in Chapter 4 and have Hubert in your party. Once you do, head to Lhant and to Cheria's house and inside you'll find a star. After you view the scene, head to Barona and then up to the shops for another star. You will receive the Beloved Handkerchief after the scene. Afterward go back to Lhant and hand it in for the Inn Request and you'll be safe from missing this trophy.

I will list below all of the requests for each town for how they appeared in my game;

If I don't list how to make a specific item it is probably in one of the lists above. If you can't find an item you can pull up the World map by pressing R3 (only when inside a building or dungeon). From there you can find what monsters drop which items and what discoveries give which items. You really won't have to go out of your way to find stuff, and if you've been following Kurusu's guide you'll be pretty much set for all of these things except the weapons. As for shards, here is a compilation of shards and their locations as the world map doesn't show where you can get them.

Note: I've been asked a lot about when certain inn requests will appear in the list. I unfortunately don't have an answer as it seemed purely random to me. If something is not appearing on your list and you have other things still not done, that one item more than likely preventing the other items from appearing on the list or you haven't progressed far enough into the game. As you progress the items only appear one at a time. There is nice shortcut if you have the shuttle to see if you have any requests while you are in a dungeon or inside a building, you can pull up the world map and check all the stores; if they have a request you'll see it listed so you don't have to go all the way back there to check for it; with the exception of Katz Korner.

Game Clear: Chaos
Completed the game on the Chaos difficulty setting.

In this game, difficulty trophies don't stack. However you only need to beat the final boss on that certain difficulty to get the trophy. So no, you don't have to play the game 4 different times on different difficulties. So you can play on easy for the entire game and only have to switch difficulties for the final boss.

However, you should be playing on the higher difficulties because you have to unlock Evil and Chaos. You will need to fight 200 battles on Hard to unlock Evil, and 300 battles on Evil to unlock Chaos. Whether you wait to do the difficulty trophy on NG+ or not is up to you, but it is doable on the first playthrough if you are high leveled enough, or just extremely lucky.

For Chaos I had a party of Sophie, Asbel, Cheria, and Malik. I originally had Pascal in place of Asbel but I've found that Asbel was much more useful than Pascal was. Since I was low leveled my trick consisted of arcane bottles and hourglasses. I would use an arcane bottle once the battle started to boost my eleth gauge and then after getting in some attacks I would use an hourglass while the team continued slamming Angelus. If you are lucky you will Eleth Burst during a combo, keep that combo going and then hit angelus with a mystic arte. If you managed to time that well and with a decently long combo, he will either die or have next to no health left.

The faster you can get him down the easier it will be. A long drawn out battle will more than likely lead to a party wipe as Angelus will start varying his attacks more and spamming them out at a quicker frequency. When I fought him on chaos I was very low leveled and pretty much all of his attacks one shot my characters (without grade shop damage modifiers), and one of his attacks will hit the entire field which resulted in complete wipes. However, the higher level you are the easier this will be, the lower you are you may want to continue moving onto the future arc or New Game+ and using the x2 and x5 damage modifiers.

Bryce in 60 Seconds
Defeated that jerk with the claw in a minute or less.

There are 9 different bosses that you will need to beat in 60 seconds for trophies. Some of these are easier to achieve on the first playthrough than others. You can choose to grind levels so you can get every one on one playthrough, but most people are going to do it on their second playthrough and you really don't need to do much work unless you are prepared beforehand.

I highly suggest waiting to do them til your second playthrough and you have both 2x and 5x damage from the grade shop. Yes, it boosts the damage for enemies as well, so expect to get one shot killed very easily. However, you'll be able to down bosses very quickly granted as long as you don't get hit. To ensure that you get the trophy I suggest dropping your difficulty down to easy but some bosses won't really matter if you are on a higher difficulty or not, but on easy they will have less HP so that means quicker battles.

If you are looking for tips on how to fight the bosses normally, check the top of the guide in the Tips & Strategies section for "Preparing for boss fights". As long as you follow those tips, you'll realize that every fight at the core is really the same.

Mixer Maxed
Maxed out your Eleth Mixer by boosting its eleth capacity to 9999.

For this trophy you have to max out the Mixer to 9999. Which thankfully is easy but requires a bit of grinding to achieve it. I would suggest waiting to grind this out til you have nothing else to work on but always keep stuff in your Mixer to boost the capacity while you play. I had about 3500 eleth by time I finished my first playthrough and around 5500 when I finished my second playthrough.

Best place to grind this out is in Lhant hill and have the following two food items in your mixer;
  • Miso Stew - Activates post battle when your Eleth Mixer is above 50% filled (Radish + Egg, then Dashi Stew + Miso)
  • Beef with Red Wine Sauce - Activates post battle when your Eleth Mixer is under 50% filled (Beef + Red Wine)

However through normal gameplay or you can't make the above I suggest other dishes such as;
  • Chocolate Pudding - Activates in battle when health is under 40%
  • Rice Omelette - Activates post battle when Eleth Mixer is above 50%
  • Mabo Curry - Activates on KO

Next you should have the following books in your mixer as well;
  • Book of Growth (Found in a chest in the Snowshroud Ruins)
  • Book of Expansion (Found in a chest in Fendel Tower floor B12)
  • Book of Potential (Obtained from fighting in Riot Peak)
  • Book of Dissolution (Found in Gralesyde, buy it from a man next to a chest)
  • Book of Frugality (Defeat the Rockagong)

Once you hit 9000 the rate of experience will slow down dramatically compared to what it was before. If you haven't used the +500 eleth from the grade shop here is a trick to use here, but you can only purchase this option once from the grade shop. First reach about 9490, but don't go over 9498 or this will glitch your trophy. Then start a new game+ and use the +500 Eleth option from the grade shop. Don't skip the childhood arc. Once the game starts, reload your mixer will all your stuff again and grind out the last few points you will need and then the trophy will pop.


[top]Grade Shop

In all Tales games there is always a feature called the Grade Shop. You can access the grade shop when you begin a New Game+. You earn Grade by doing things through the game and it counts it all up at the end and you will have a certain amount of points to buy stuff to use in your NG+ file. You gain Grade by fighting battles, fighting on high difficulties, beating the game, gaining titles, how many skills you've learned, using arte's 9999 times, completing collection books, side quests, high combos, completing floors in the Zhonecage, speed, no deaths, obtaining soul orbs, dualizing equipment, not using any Gel items to heal, and more. As you can see there are a lot of ways to gain Grade in this game, and some give more than others.

[top]Weapon Qualities

This section is for the qualities of weapon types that you will see in the game and which items dualize into which. To sum to the qualities in the easiest way is that you have 6 tiers that each have 6-8 different qualities. If you combine two qualities from tier 1 you will dualize something from tier 2. I will list up to tier 5 since you won't need anything from tier 6 for the platinum.
TIER 1
TIER 2
TIER 3 TIER 4 TIER 5
Keen Grand Wicked Untamed Fabulous
Hard Noble Barbed Gallant Dazzling
Cool Suave Frosty Haughty Perilous
Cute Olden Stuffy Sketchy Poignant
Rapt Sunny Formal Magical Vigorous
Oily Rigid Solemn Epochal Gracious
Buff
Cold

Below I will list what qualities when dualized together will make which quality in the end. Unfortunately there is no place in game that shows what will dualize into another. The below lists are from the best I could convert back and forth from the Japanese Atwiki Here; I personally tested most of these if I had the shards to combine and they are correct. If you happen to find one that doesn't work, please let me know.
