After reaching Frontier Village

  • Normal End and Other Events
    • You'll meet Piana upon entering. Go north for a scene and trophy. Congrats, you unlocked the Normal End. Let's get started on unlocking the true end. :D
    • Leave the village for another scene. And one with Mimi for the Aristocratic Love trophy. (Mimi Events)
    • Warp Gate back to Atelier Totori for another scene. lolpiana.
    • Make Gerhard's drinks. Wait a month, talk to him again, then talk to Sterk and Guid. Put a Sonne Fruit in your basket and go to the fishing point as close to the end of the month as possible . Don't make the alcohol till its time to manipulate ends. (Wealth end, Specialty Liquor, Sterk Events)
  • Tips
    • To the Wharf to find Marc. Buy a Platine from Hagel, if you must, but the Shining Saucer should be easy. This will speed up the boat.
    • Just as a reminder, I made ~73450 Cole with the Spring Cup trick. With 40 Spring Cups, but it works! And remember to use it on the world map. (Wealth end)
    • Monitor your Chims. They might go past 35 pies. This is not good. You want them just a bit below that. Stop their work if they're about to go further. Unless they have already eaten 9; then they can continue working.
    • As a reminder, make sure to do the last of the Filly and Tiffani Events.
  • Piana Events
    • To the dining room for a scene with Piana.
    • A few days later, return to the Atelier for another with her. Totori's getting jealous~
    • Days later, without Rorona in your party, some events between her and Rorona will appear. The second of these (30 days later, Alchemy Level 45+) features Ceci, and you'll get the Still a Child trophy. And a day is lost. It's hard to miss these events, so long as you ditch Rorona. This will not occur when Pamela is traveling with you, for whatever reason.
    • Talk to Piana later for another scene.
    • She'll also appear with Gerhard and Pamela.
    • I don't know exactly how this scene works, but eventually a scene about Piana being sick will appear. I got it after synthesis.
  • True End and Beyond
    • Return to Frontier Village for a scene with Pilca. (True end events)
    • Talk to her again before leaving. She has a shop! Scoop up those recipes, and some of the stuff is pretty cool. Get a Dragon Tusk (like other items with only one copy, it disappears after you buy it). You have to fight optional bosses for more of them. Make sure Chim duplicates it!
    • Feel free to explore (not the tower, you won't be able to enter), but return to Alanya for a scene with Piana. Gab to Rorona for some hilarity. Then to Pamela. When you leave to the world map, Pamela will appear. (True end events)
    • And now you should be able to follow all of the advice in Boss Preparation. You don't have to, but be sure follow it if you intend to take out optional bosses.
    • Go Liechtein Soehnle, the tower beyond Frontier Village, once you think you're ready. You'll get the Haunted Doll trophy for going. Fight Evil Face. You do need more levels on you compared to Flauschtraut. (True end events, Mimi Events, Melvia Events)
    • Do not fight Evil Face after Year 5, 6/1. There is a conflict of events, and basically it amounts to this: Pamela will not show up in her shop. This screws up the entire festival.
    • The rest of the tower is totally optional. Nothing but bragging rights attached. Yes, no trophies! Lots of bosses, if that's your thing. FYI, I stormed this tower with three items. A super buffing Totori Brunch, a maxed out N/A, and a good Elixir. So, combined with Shadow Band, I wasn't even fully restoring my health. And while my armor and accessory were top tier, I had a mediocre weapon set... but with the buffs, Sterk/Mimi did most of the damage. :P This was in the Vita version, so I had a little more to work with, but you should be able to do it in the PS3 version too with a slightly different setup.
    • Return to Atelier Totori for a scene with Piana.
    • To Pamela's shop. This is important. Failure to comply will result in screwing up the festival. It seems the town didn't know she was a ghost either. A while later, there will be another event with her in the bear.

Festival! Year 5, 6/1

  • In Atelier Totori, Peter will barge in. Keep track of the day you trigger this event. Exactly two months later, you need to trigger the festival.
  • In Alanya, you have Pamela, Ceci, and Mel.
    • Note: Pamela may cause problems. Be sure to drop by her store immediately after beating Evil Face. (I know this seems redundant to a lot of you, but I can't assume everyone that looks here is following along.)
  • In Arland, you have Rorona, Mimi, Tiffani (who won't go), Cordelia (after Rorona), and Lesbian. Uh, I mean Filly.
  • So, two months later, pop up in Atelier Totori. You get the Fishing Festival trophy. Cheer for your favorite. If you miss this event, Peter sulks at you and leaves forever. Well, maybe not forever, but I never bothered finding out whether he returned.

To the End!

  • Your best bet for grinding is Dusk Throne to the north of Arland. With a Gibate Ankh with the Great Learner Effect, you'll get 4000~5000 exp per visit. Bring a Himmelstern with Swarm Slayer (and MP restoration items), and Totori will rip the mobs apart.
  • You shouldn't have issues with your Alchemy level, but if you do, make Elixirs and other super high level stuff.
  • As long as you've been consistently doing quests (and well in them!), exploring, beating bosses, and synthing new stuff, you should be able to get Galaxy rank pretty easily. The conversation between Totori and Cory is a hint. There's still stuff for you to find.
  • After hitting Galaxy (optional!)
    • Go back to Moonlight Forest. You'll get new materials, necessary for Ruby Prism... and a new boss.
    • Similarly, Black Dragon is now at Night's Domain. It drops Dragon Tusk.
    • Liechtein Soehnle has four bosses. Yep. You should be more than capable of taking them now. In this order: Fran Pfeil, Iron Giant Proto, Penguin Monk x3 (just before 5F, but out of sight), Rage Beast. There's a shortcut out to the southwest of 5F.
    • Once you've done all that, it's time for the PS3's ultimate boss, Ozean Kaiser, complete with 18,000 HP (not as daunting as it sounds). Go to the Adventurer Guild and talk to the NPC adventurer closest to Cory. On the world map a new area will appear.
    • It's... actually very possible to beat Ozean Kaiser before he gets to attack back. Your hint? N/A, Ether Ink, and Dimension Egg.
  • Orthogalaxen (Plus/DX)
    • See Boss Preparation, if you haven't already. Come. Prepared. Overprepared. More prepared than you've prepared for anything else. This is a massive difficulty spike. The minimum is top tier equipment, Shadow Band, Dark Water, Himmelstern, Totori Brunch, Elixir (I had two different kinds), and Dimension Egg, as well as something to restore your MP after using the egg. Want to solo? Angel Charm.
    • First boss is a masked trio on floor 4, and KO Peck is annoying. In the chest behind the penguin is Secret Notes.
    • Floor 7 has two ways up. Floor 9 is a dead end with nothing important. Floor 8 leads to the first required boss, Cobalt Skull, then to floor 10.
    • Floor 13 also has two ways up. Floor 14 is another total waste of space in a dungeon that's already too big. Floor 15 is where the next boss, Guardian, is. This guy will eat your MP.
    • The final boss, Blood Element, is on Floor 16. You'll get The Life of a Noble. This is also the only boss I haven't beaten in my Totori solo attempts.
