[top]Pro-Tips

  • When choosing to go first or second granted you win, by going second you'll be able to draw an extra card whereas if you go first you do not get to draw a card.
  • Make a burn deck as early as you can.
    • A burn deck is designed to dwindle down your opponents' life points by inflicting effect damage. Some decks do collaborate with beat down cards, but for the most point you will see low level cards being played with a lot of magic or trap cards. Another way to increase the odds of winning with your burn deck is to add multiple stall cards to prevent the opponent from attacking any card on your side of the field.

  • If you want this 100% to go quicker do not use the story decks!
  • The minimum amount of cards allowed in a deck is 40 and the maximum is 60.
  • You cannot play with banned cards during online multiplayer sessions.
  • As you are in the deck edit area, the cards with a circle and a line through it mean they are banned. If they have a number on them, these means you can only have that many in your deck.
    • Although this is a basic outline your deck can differ from playing online multiplayer to single player because in single player you can play with both banned cards and more than the specified number in your deck. Use this to your advantage!

  • You get rewards even when you lose so if you're looking for a specific card and know where to get it you can easily enter the duel and surrender until you get it. This will save you a lot of time.

Step One: Play and win every duel including the reverse duels in the five series. Here you will be gaining a large portion of Victory Points so you can buy booster packs from certain duelist in each series. Cards are unlocked and rewarded within certain packs so you cannot purchase from any pack hoping you can earn every card from each pack.

Step Two: Make a deck! This is a very important step that shouldn't be skipped, in fact this should be a priority from the start of your Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy journey. A basic structure deck given to you as you start the game can be used to defeat all campaign related duels. Making a deck(s) will really set you up for success with the next step since the duel challenges will take a lot of luck in the cards, multiple attempts, and frustration.
The Duelist Begins Curator

Step Three: Now that you have completed all the campaign duels in each series you should go into the duelist challenges. Be sure to have multiple decks with different play styles as if can really secure a win instead of retrying numerous times with the same deck repeatedly.
Master Duelist

Step Four: Time to complete the online multiplayer duels. There is one ranked duel and one unranked duel to complete in this step. They can both be boosted so the order in which this is completed is really up to you, however, if you're going to play legit you best bring your custom deck because the duelist are very knowledgeable and tactical online. During this step you can also complete the battle pack duel by boosting!

Step Five: There still may be a few miscellaneous trophies to clean up depending if you worked at them during the previous steps but if not this is your time to do so. All these trophies should be nearly completed if they weren't already thus making this step not a big pain.

Perform a Tribute Summon

Tribute summoning goes back to the original series in which you tribute one or more cards to be replaced with another one from your hand. This trophy cannot be unlocked from the single player campaign tutorials; however, it can be unlocked from multiplayer, campaign duels, duelist challenges, or the battle pack duels.

To tribute summon a monster you must first already have a monster(s) on the field. Tribute summons can only be done once per turn so be careful when you are performing these summons as you will have only one monster instead of multiple. When it becomes your turn again you can special summon a level 5 or 6 monster you can tribute one level 4 or lower monster on your side of the field. If you wish to summon a level 7 or higher you must tribute 2 monsters even if they both are level 6 monsters.

You could also perform a tribute summon by using a The Call of the Haunted, Monster Reborn, Change of Heart in which you will take control of a monster where you can tribute those monsters for your own.

[top]
Coalesce
Perform a Fusion Summon

This trophy cannot be unlocked from the single player campaign tutorials; however, it can be unlocked from multiplayer, campaign duels, duelist challenges, or the battle pack duels.

A fusion summon is done by special summoning a monster within the extra deck with the effect of Polymerization and any other card effect required per fusion monster. Fusion monsters are purple and can be found through a lot of the story decks as you go through the single player campaign. Each one identifies exactly how it can be summoned and what cards it needs to be summoned with. You must have these cards on the field or in your hand to perform the summon ritual. Once the summon has occurred the Polymerization will be sent to the graveyard along with any other card used to summon your new monster.

[top]
Ultimate Form
Perform an Xyz Summon

Perform a XYZ summon during a single player campaign duel exception to the tutorial, multiplayer duels, battle pack duels, and the duelist challenges.

For those that do not know, the XYZ cards are black and are placed within the extra deck. You can play a tutorial from the Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL Series if you are unfamiliar with these summons as you will practice and learn how to summon these cards.

To summon these XYZ cards you will need a set of monsters already on the field in face up position so the game can take notice of what level each card is at the time. Each XYZ card differs as some may need a total of two 3 level cards while some go beyond that for instance there are a lot of great 4 level XYZ cards that can be summoned if you have two 4 level monsters on the field already. If these cards are placed in your extra deck you will be given notice when you can summon them as the extra deck will light up with a circle informing you that one or more of the cards from the extra deck can be summoned. Once the summon is performed you will get to choose if you want to go into defense or attack mode where the 2 cards to summon the XYZ card will be placed below it. Different positions and cards have different effects when using them so be aware of that as you play them.

[top]
Tuned in
Perform a Synchro Summon

This trophy cannot be unlocked from the single player campaign tutorials; however, it can be unlocked from multiplayer, campaign duels, duelist challenges, or the battle pack duels.

Synchro monsters are the white cards and they will be added into your extra deck as you duel. If you wish to go through a tutorial of summoning Synchro monsters you can do so in the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Series. To get out your Synchro monster you will need to have face up monsters on your field (1 tuner and as many other non tuner monsters) that equal to the level of the Synchro monster you're trying to summon.

[top]
Chronomancer
Perform a Pendulum Summon

First off, if you're not familiar with summoning Pendulum cards you can always replay the tutorial duel from the ARC-V single player campaign. This will teach you how to summon and use the pendulum scales.

First step to successfully performing a pendulum summon is to place one pendulum monster on both sides of the field which is considered the pendulum zone.
  • On the left side of the field you will want to place the lower level pendulum (rating shown next to the blue gem on the card) card and on the right side of the field you will want to place your highest pendulum card (rating shown to the right of the red gem on the card) as long as it is higher than the left.
  • Now with those two cards in place you can activate the pendulum summon phase but only those monsters in-between the rating of the cards on the left and right side. For example we put a level 2 on the left and 7 on the right we can summon levels 3, 4, 5, & 6 from your hand or extra deck.
  • After the summon has been completed the trophy will unlock and you can surrender the match if you like.

You can go into any duel after you have unlocked the pendulum deck and attempt to summon a monster. You can always surrender until you have the two zone monsters such as the level 2 for the left and 7 for the right so you can achieve the summon on your first or second turn.

Note: Completing the tutorial will not unlock this trophy.

Casual Duelist
Win an unranked multiplayer match (duel)

As the trophy states you must win an unranked multiplayer match. To do so select Multiplayer from the Main Menu ⇾ Player Match and from here you can choose to find a match or create one of your own. If you decide to find a match you can set your on match settings, life points, and time limit per phase, but also your the deck you wish to choose. The create match also allows you to set all that on your but also add private slots so you can send an invite to a friend.

If you want to earn this naturally, duel the opponent and hope they don't disconnect on you as that won't give you credit for winning. Surrendering, time limit-reaching 0, and by draining all your opponents life points will earn you a win and this trophy.

Note: You cannot play in an online match with any banned or forbidden cards in your deck including those in your side deck. Only the decks with a thumbs up in your deck edit can be used during online duels.

This trophy can be boosted if you're having trouble. Please visit the Official Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist Boosting Thread!

[top]
Playing For Real
Win a ranked multiplayer match (duel)

Select Multiplayer from the Main Menu ⇾ Ranked Match and from here you can choose to find a match or create one of your own. All the match settings are standard and cannot be made custom so the time limit & life points are the same in every ranked duel. There are also no private slots in ranked match so it you want to boost this someone will need to create the room while the other must hurry and find your room before someone else enters it to prevent making the room multiple times.

If you want to earn this naturally, duel the opponent and hope they don't disconnect on you as that won't give you credit for winning. Surrendering, time limit-reaching 0, and by draining all your opponents life points will earn you a win and this trophy.

Note: You cannot play in an online match with any banned or forbidden cards in your deck including those in your side deck. Only the decks with a thumbs up in your deck edit can be used during online duels.

This trophy can be boosted if you're having trouble. Please visit the Official Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist Boosting Thread!

[top]
Battle Tested
Win a Battle Pack match (duel)

A Battle Pack match can be done solo or with a boosting partner. To get into a battle pack duel you must select Battle Pack form the Main Menu where you then choose between the sealed play or draft play. You can choose either option as you have 2000 victory points to spend as each option forces you to spend victory points on a battle pack. You will be allotted 5 games in which you must win 1 game in order to win the cards in the deck you're playing with (you are asked if you want to add the deck of cards to your trunk after the best of 5 series). If you're in it just for the cards you can get the 1 win and surrender the rest.

Sealed Play (Your deck is made instantly from 10 five-card Battle Packs)
  • Epic Dawn - 2000 victory points
  • War of the Giants - 2000 victory points

Draft Play (Draft 45 cards in 3 rounds of pack opening)
  • Epic Dawn - 2000 victory points
  • War of the Giants - 2000 victory points
  • War of the Giants Round 2 - 2000 victory points

Note:
Most if not all of the cards from the battle packs will be new to you so take the time to read the effects as you play them or by looking through them before the duel. Doing the draft play could actually be beneficial since you are getting a visual of each card as you place them into your deck.

Note
: This trophy can be boosted if you're having troubles. After you purchased which deck you wish to have or if you have drafted you can choose to do an online battle instead of single player. Please visit the Official Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist Boosting Thread!

Master Collector
Unlock all avatars

Unlocking each of the avatars is very time consuming. To unlock each avatar you must complete of the 5 campaign series and then again in reverse. Not only are you unlocking avatars by doing these duels in reverse, you're also unlocking duelist for the Master Duelist . There are 100 avatars in total that can be unlocked by doing all the campaign duels and they can be equipped to any deck you make from the deck edit criteria. From the deck edit hover over any deck and press the to have a new set of options appear, choose the select duelist and here will be each avatar you have unlocked.

If you are not sure if you have completed an entire series of duels you can always go into Single Player Campaign and look at the statistics to the left that tell you the completion percentage of both the entire campaign and series. If you are missing a duel in the series you can jump into that series and look for the missing duel by seeing if it has the yellow exclamation point or by seeing if they have all been unlocked yet.

[top]
Master Duelist
Win All Duelist Challenges

Like Master Collector you will need to complete each original Yu-Gi-Oh! campaign and again in reverse just to unlock all the duel challenges. Once each duel has been completed you will have access to every duelist challenge. To access the duelist challenges enter Single Player from the Main Menu Duelist Challenges. From here you will see each campaign as they each have their own duel challenges. As you enter the challenges each avatar will have an icon at the top left indicating the progress you have made...
  • = you have defeated this duelist.
  • = you have lost to this duelist and have yet to win.
  • = you have yet to duel this opponent.

You should definitely make a couple custom decks for these duel challenges as they are buffed and have the ability to OTK (one turn kill) if given the opportunity. Burn decks still work well in these challenges if you have one made already. At this point though you may want to make strong decks to eliminate a duelist in 1-5 turns to prevent them from getting out their trump cards that can prevent you from depleting any more life points from them. This will also cut down on the time needed to 100% therefore could make this game much more enjoyable to you. To make your own custom deck be sure to purchase packs from the card shop, battle packs, or win them from single player duels (remember you can surrender and still be rewarded). The cards you are rewarded are always random so it can take multiple duels or thousands of victory points to finally achieve the card(s) you have been looking for.

Once all the duelist challenges from each series have been complete with the green icon you will be rewarded with this trophy!

Note:
If you are not sure if you have completed an entire series of duels you can always go into Single Player
Campaign and look at the statistics to the left that tell you the completion percentage of both the entire campaign and series. If you are missing a duel in the series you can jump into that series and look for the missing duel by seeing if it has the yellow exclamation point or by seeing if they have all been unlocked yet.

Damage Dealer
Deal 200k in Direct Damage

Direct damage can be dealt in any single player campaign, duelist challenge, battle pack duel, or multiplayer duel. All damage dealt is cumulative and will be totaled after every duel. There is no statistics to see in game for how much damage you have done directly so if you wish to know when or how soon you should unlock the trophy you should considering writing it down yourself. Direct damage can be dealt directly by monsters on the field during the players turn by the battle phase.

Note: If your opponent is at the end of their life points and you have 2 or more monsters on your side of the field attack with the one or more that won't kill them off right away because you will want your last attic to deal the most damage. This is because the entire attack will be counted even if they do not have that amount of life points left.

Note: You can boost this if needed by creating or joining an unranked match in multiplayer with the maximum amount of life points set in the match settings. Do not have anyone surrender because you will want to deal the direct damage.

[top]
Effect Elitist
Deal 100k in Effect Damage

Deal a total of 100k in effect damage which is cumulative through single player campaign, battle duels, multiplayer, and duelist challenges. Effect damage is damage caused not by battle. If you read monster/spell/trap card effects you will be able to see which ones inflict damage and how the effect actually works as some can as simple as activating a spell card to letting a monster attack your own monsters.

Excellent effect cards that inflict effect damage
  • Trap - Magic Cylinder
  • Spell - Meteor of Destruction
  • Spell - Ookazi
  • XYZ - GaGaGa Cowboy
  • Monster - Marshmallon
  • Monster - Blast Sphere
  • Fusion - Blaze Fenix, the Burning Bombardments Bird

Note:
You can boost this if needed by creating or joining an unranked match in multiplayer with the maximum amount of life points set in the match settings. Do not have anyone surrender because you will want to deal the direct damage.

[top]
Reflect Rager
Deal 50k in Reflective Damage

Reflect damage can be dealt in any single player campaign, duelist challenge, battle pack duel, or multiplayer duel. All reflect damage dealt is cumulative and will be totaled after every duel. There is no statistics to see in game for how much damage you have done so if you wish to know when or how soon you should unlock the trophy you should considering writing it down yourself. Reflect damage is damage taken to the opponent when they attack your monsters on the field with their, but instead of taking damage they will instead take that damage. Like the Effect Elitist you will be able to use some of the same cards for both steps. This trophy can be thought of as an opponent attacking him or herself.

A classic example of reflective damage is when defense monster at 2000k and an opponent goes into battle phase with a 1700k attack and takes that -300 life point reduction as if they're hitting themselves.

Great cards that can help you reach this goal faster:
  • Monster - Marshmallon
  • Monster - Stone Statue of the Aztecs
  • Spell - Chorus of Sanctuary
  • Spell - Shrink

[top]
Chain Champion
Chain 100 times

These chains are cumulative and will be done over time as you may only get 1-5 chains a duel unless your cards in succession. Chains will count in any single player campaign duel, duelist challenge, or online multiplayer duel. There is no way to track this unless you are keeping count on your own so don't stress if it hasn't unlocked after the campaign series.

A chain is a set of cards used to negate or activate an effect at the same time within the same moment. The last card played in the chain will be resolved as it will be carried through and activated. Once a spell/trap card is played to activate or negate an attack or effect the opposing player can play a card to prevent the act thus by using one of their spell/trap cards thus starting a chain. If the attacked player has more than one card they can use at the time they are allowed to do so in addition to the attacking player being allowed to counter-spell what the trap/spell card was against them because they can negate any cards used against them as well which begins multiple spell/trap chain.

Great cards to gain chain with: (Infinite use until destroyed)
  • Scrap-Iron Scarecrow
  • Magic Cylinder
  • Supply Squad
  • Heart of the Underdog

Example of a chain inside a duel:

Yami Yugi (opponent) - Has a 1 monster on the field with no traps or spell cards.
Seeker (player) - Has 1 monster set on the field and three Scrap-Iron Scarecrows in the spell field.

Step 1: Yami Yugi attacks Seekers set card
Step 2: Seeker plays the Scrap-Iron Scarecrow card that negates the attack.
Step 3: Seeker is asked to activate another card if wanted. Activate Scrap-Iron Scarecrow #2.
Step 4: Seeker is once again asked to activate another card if wanted. Activate the final Scrap-Iron Scarecrow #3 for a chain combo of 3.

The chain combo is three because you activated 3 trap/spell cards in one play that resulted in a card not being able to carry through with their effect. Normally if there is more than one monster on your opponents' side of the field you would not play each of these three cards but for this example it is a great way to build up a chain combo instead of just chaining just the one card. Once the last card is played to activate or negate an effect that's when the chain will end.

The Duelist Begins
Create your first deck

Please refer to Curator below for more information.

[top]
Curator
Create 5 decks

This is much easier than it seems to be and that's because you don't need to even make a deck. All that is required is creating 5 decks nothing more although you will want to add cards to them at some point. To create a deck you must select Deck Edit from the Main Menu. Here you will have three different sections that are divided to make the process of creating and sorting out much easier. Select any of the empty slots by pressing and a list of deck recipes will appear, instead of using a deck recipe press the and start a new deck with no cards in it. Here you will be given the option to enter the deck name and once done your deck will be created even with no cards in the deck itself. Repeat this process 4x...

The left section is the User Decks section, which gives you 32 slots for 32 custom decks if needed. You can easily find any deck you have made by hitting to sort them alphabetically, by duelist, or by slot number. It is in this segment that you can see how many decks you have created and which of these decks are complete or incomplete.

The middle portion is the Recipe Info (creating a deck is referred to as "edit recipe") where you will see the duelist avatar you have chosen, the deck name, and if they are missing cards or complete.

At the right side of the deck edit menu (use to slide over) is the overview of the deck itself you are in. Here you will see every card in or out of the deck. This is where you will place cards you want in your deck. You have a main, extra, and side section of the deck that are all separate from one another.
  • The main deck is the list of cards you will have during your duel (minimum of 40 and maximum of 60), which is shown to the right of the main deck sorter. Also inside the main deck is a bar with colors displaying what type of cards are within your deck as each type of card is color coded (please refer down below for the color coded meanings).
  • The extra part of the deck is where your XYZ and Ritual cards (black & purple monster cards) will be placed. The maximum amount of cards that can be placed here is 15.
  • The side part is for cards that didn't make the cut for the main deck but could hold value during a duel. In between duels you are allowed to switch out cards from your deck so this makes it much easier.

Icon representations to take into consideration
  • - means there are less than 40 cards in your deck (can be seen from the user decks divider).
  • - means you have some forbidden cards that cannot be used in online play (forbidden cards can be used during your duelist challenges and campaign related progress).
  • - means there are cards in the deck that you don't have so you cannot use the deck.
  • - means you are only allowed a certain amount of that particular card within your deck.
  • - means your deck meets all the criteria of not missing any cards from a previous recipe, you have the allowed amount of cards you can of that particular card, and you do not have any forbidden cards.

Forbidden One
Win a duel by having all Exodia cards in hand

This trophy is heavily dependent on your deck and what cards you have within in. There are deck recipes that can be unlocked that you can play with, story decks you can use, or you can unlock these Exodia pieces from Grandpa Muto's packs in the card shop. The key point here is that you must have each of the five cards (Left Arm of the Forbidden One, Left Leg of the Forbidden One, Right Arm of the Forbidden One, Right Leg of the Forbidden One, and Exodia the Forbidden One) in your hand at one time. It doesn't matter if they have been send tot he graveyard at any point as you can always find cards to return them to your hand. When you have each of the five cards of Exodia in your hand you are given an automatic win.

During the Yu-Gi-Oh! series you will come across two duels that will have an Exodia deck therefore you can use the story deck in which you use their deck to duel with. Those duels are as follows:

The Heart of the Cards - Yami Yugi vs. Seto Kaiba
Duel as: Yami Yugi
Deck Name: Exodia Obliterate

Battle City Begins - Yami Yugi vs. Seeker = Reverse Duel
Duel as: Seeker
Deck name: Cheating Exodia

Note: This trophy can be earned from the campaign duels, multiplayer, or the duelist challenges. Also if you win by any other means then having the automatic win by having all 5 cards you will not earn this trophy.
