Sword and Fairy 7: Together Forever Trophy Guide & Roadmap
Welcome to yet another RPG guide, this time I will be covering Sword and Fairy 7 (but it's called just Sword and Fairy for some reason) - a chinese mythology, fantasy RPG that looks so damn good! The platinum journey is an easy one, so let's start.
Step 1 - Finish the game while doing certain side-quests, getting all spirits, doing all card mini-games and all leaf jumping challenges
There are 2 missable boss trophies, but you can still tackle the boss time trial after finishing the game, so they are technicaly not missable. One is the first boss Xiqu and the Bullfighter trophy, the second is the Bring Justice trophy during the Puppets Sword and Mirror boss fight.
While playing the game I advise you to look out for Nice Team trophy - when you unlock all 4 party members you will soon unlock random combo QTE during fights. As you can play with all party members, you can get the opportunity to perform QTE event (when button promps appears during a fight) and by pressing the correct button you will perform Combo attack. You need to do that will all members - try to use different members to get this out of the way, this was my last trophy.
To unlock trophy for unlocking all abilities you just need to reach level 40 and unlock all Spirits except the last one.
There is also a trophy to unlock 70% of Library (all entries like monsters, weapons etc.). It's really generous, I was above 90 when I finished the game. Keep collecting items in towns on the floor and hidden ones, collect books inside the buildings, kill all types of enemies, inspect the viewpoints on every map (there is an eye icon on the map), collect all cards etc... If you enter Menu - Libary you can check what you miss, and if you scroll on the row with the lock icon you can see details how to unlock the entry. It's really easy to reach 70%.
Cook 30 times - there is one trophy to cook 10 and 1 for 30 dishes. You need to cook 30 times but not in towns; either in your room or in dungeons where you can cook. You can cook the same meal (recipes are unlocked by ordering in towns or from leaf chests/pickups in dungeons/towns.
Do 20 side-quests/errands - Easy, they are marked as "!" on maps. They show you "?" icon where you need to go to finish them. Do 20 errands to get the trophy. Note that some quests are needed to unlock some other trophies. I did them all, they are short and easy.
You need to beat all card mini-game opponents (icons are always on the map, for this it's a card icon) and pass all Leaf challenges (also showing as icon on the map).
Enhance your weapons 20 times - you will need to forge weapons over Blacksmith; only weapons you forge will have 3 slots for enhancements. You will need to max out 7 weapons to get the trophy. Really easy, there are much more weapons and slots available.
Gather all Spirits and max out 1 spirit to level 15 - You don't need the last Spirit in the Library (bottom row entry). Invest in a single spirit until they reach level 15 and that is it.
Summon all Gods (4, 1 per member) plus the Wine God. That should be it.
Final Step - Mop up if you still miss something after beating the game
If you miss some trophy, do it now in the post-game.
Topics and YouTube Playlist:
Xiqu is the first in-game boss, bull. For this trophy simply defeat him, but beware, the other trophy tied to this battle may be missable (Video in the Bullfighter trophy description).
Xiqu is the first in-game boss, bull. For this trophy you need to reduce his HP to half first. He will enter the second phase, and the moment you want is when he is trying to rush into you. Look around the environment, there is a rock at the edge of the area where you can jump. When you are on the rock, simply wait for Xiqu to rush into that wall and the trophy will unlock.
Do not confuse 3 smaller rocks - they are only for QTE events and not for this trophy.
2:10 - Bullfighter Trophy
Second boss will be Kuiyu, you can't miss this trophy as it's a story trophy (it will unlock during the second fight, the first fight you need to lose).
Spirit Ice Beast is a story boss and you can't really miss it.
Flame horse Hualiu is a story-related boss and it cannot be missed.
The fish Chiru is a story-related boss and it cannot be missed.
Story-related tropy, you can't miss it.
Story-related tropy, you can't miss it.
Hint for the stone puzzle prior to boss fight:
Observe scratches on the floor of each platform - look from the portal towards the opposite ledge for the pattern. It starts with 3 full stripes, which means you need to "drive" the platform where the 3 stripes symbol is and place it there. Do it for all platforms, or if you can - press L1 during platform navigation to skip the puzzle
This is a second boss fight where you can miss a trophy. Although it's missable during the story, you can still challenge all these fights after finishing the game, so technically this is not missable, but it's easy now as the fights are easier. I had issues with unlocking both trophies, it seems like the first time it glitched out. Try making a save before you enter the portal, when you enter the stone puzzle room it's too late for saving. I just loaded the game, skipped the puzzle and this time both trophies unlocked. I suggest defeating the Mirror boss first, she is easier. Plus, when you trigger a mid-point in fight you will witness a mirror that you can attack. You need to deplete the whole health of the mirror at that point in order to get one of the trophies - meaning if she summons her mirror attack more than once, you need to quickly get rid of it. If someone dies, you can't get the trophy anymore.
You will need to reach level 40 and collect all Spirits, except the last Spirit under Library list in your menu. By doing so you will have all abilities needed for this trophy.
This trophy refers to Menu -> Library entries (all entries like monsters, weapons, locations, spirits, etc.). It's really generous, I was above 90 when I finished the game. Keep collecting items in towns on the floor and the hidden ones, collect books inside the buildings, kill all types of enemies, inspect the viewpoints on every map (there is an eye icon on the map), collect all cards etc... If you enter Menu -> Libary you can check what you miss, and if you scroll on the row with the lock icon you can see details how to unlock the entry. It's really easy to reach 70%, you should get there in no time.
Branch tasks are side-quests. They are marked as "!" on the map and they are usually short. Simply follow the "?" icons after activating quests to finish them. Do this for 20 times and the trophy unlocks. Quests are opened early in the game and there are new ones as you progress the story - be sure to fast travel to earlier destinations, check the map for quests and do them if there are any.
You need to cook 30 dishes - you can prepare the same one 30 times, so this should not be a big problem. Note that you need to cook on the cooking locations, not order food in towns, that doesn't count.
During "Awaken the Kid" story mission you will be introduced to cooking. When you enter your room in the first village you can cook on the stove in there. You need to cook 10 times. Note that you need to cook on the cooking locations, not order food in towns, that doesn't count.
You can learn new recipes by eating in restourants inside towns, or by opening chests, or picking items in dungeons/towns. You don't need them at all since you unlock default one during story.
Jumping game is a leaf mini-game. You can get to play one simply by talking to the onion-like npc on the south-east side of the Pingxi Vilage (Free Leaf Fairy icon on the map). Reach the top, open a chest and the trophy is yours.
This is the worst trophy in the game. You need to successfully perform a QTE even during a fight with all party members. I suggest doing this when you're fighting a boss; they have the most HP and the chances of getting a prompt for Combo attacks are higher. There are accessories that raise the chances by 5%: "Muse - Yin" & "Muse - Yang". You can equip 1 on the character you use in fights, and the other on the one you want to perform a Combo with. The rest is about luck.
I had troubles with this in the late game - you are too strong for all enemies, so you can lower your attack by equipping weak weapons and then entering the fights.
- Yue Qingshu > Bai Moqing or vice versa
- Yue Qingshu > Sangyou or vice versa
- Xiu Wu > Bai Moqing or vice versa
- Xiu Wu > Sangyou or vice versa
Special thx to @GameAnimeParadise for providing an explanation video about the trophy:
During "Awaken the Kid" story mission you will be introduced to cooking. When you enter your room, choose only dish you can cook and cook it. This will unlock the trophy.
First you need to beat 12 card opponents, then the last 3 will appar in Mingshu Sect, in Chapter 27 (when you return from the Demon realm and save Xiu Wu, you will have to talk to Grandpa in Mingshu Sect). Beat the last 3 for last 3 cards and for this trophy.
When you reach Lulong Town around chapter 16, enter the restourant (Cook on the map) and go upstairs. There will be a guy talking on higher ground than the folks. Go near him to listen. Talk to him after he talks a bit and the trophy will unlock.
After unlocking Blacksmith you can enhance weapons up to 3 times. You will find new weapons across the game (later on you can Forge weapon using Blacksmith) that you can enhance, plus you will have other party members with their weapons. Enhance the weapons to their max level, do 20 enhancements to unlock the trophy.
If you miss some ingredients, go to your Menu -> Library and check monsters and what they can drop. You can farm that way easily what you miss.
Finish sub-story in Pingxi Village called "Kind Paladin", in Smoky Village quest named "Fellow", and in Lulong Town "Thousand Cup Secret". You will get "Gourd" accessory. Equip it with either chatacter, use that one i battle and press L3 + R3 to summon a God, which will in this case be a Wine God. This unlocks the trophy.
You actually need 7, not 8. There are 8 Spirits in the game, but the last one doesn't count towards this trophy:
During "Calm and Justice" story quest you will be introduced to leveling up your Spirits. Through the manu, enter Spirits, spend food items to raise level of your spirit and then use the row toggles to adjust/raise whichever status you prefer. That will unlock this trophy (I don't know if this is a story trophy, but it's really hard to miss).
Clear "Animism" quest chain (4 quests). That will go through most of the Elite monsters. Elite monster are the ones in the Library with the letter next to their names at the end (C/D/S etc):
- Magic Ginseng (D) - Automatic story-related
- Thorn Monster (D) - Automatic story-related
- Wind Evil (S) - Changbai Mountain Road; During "Animism II" quest, southeastern corner of the start of the map
- Ice Cone (C) - Howling Canyon; During "Animism II" quest, north part of the map, in the middle
- Knife Nanny (S) - Flora Cliff; During "Animism III" quest, southwestern corner of the start of the map
- Anxiang (C) - Flora Cliff; You can find her when you go down in the red flower field, in the southeastern corner
- Hard Rock Monster (H) - Pingxi Village; Automatic story-related during "The Trial" quest
- Furious Salamander (P) - Bottom of Duzhang Spring; Northern part of the lake area, around the middle
- Sword Servant (B) - Automatic story-related (this should be your last Elite monster for unlocking the trophy)
- Li (R) - Not needed for the trophy
During "Calm and Justice" story quest you will be introduced to Blacksmith. When you return his ore you can enhance your weapon. Simply use the ore to raise whichever status of your weapon you want, and do this 3 times to fill all 3 slots of Cyan Sword (or any other weapon later). Doing so will max a weapon and unlock the trophy.
This trophy requires 1 spirit beast on its max level. Not all! Just one is enough. Max level is level 15, which is really easy to reach once you reach the Demon Realm where you will get couple of last tier berries that gives you a lot of Spirit points. Just raise 1 Spirit to its max level to unlock the trophy.
To unlock 5th God:
Finish sub-story in Pingxi Village called "Kind Paladin", in Smoky Village quest named "Fellow", and in Lulong Town "Thousand Cup Secret". You will get "Gourd" accessory. Equip it with either chatacter, use that one i battle and press L3 + R3 to summon a God, which will in this case be a Wine God.
You need to also call 4 other Gods (L3 + R3 transformation gets unlocked relatively early in the story); meaning 1 per character. Call a god, perfom his attack with R2 + Square. If the trophy didn't pop, repeat, it should unlock eventualy.
You need to complete "Music Inheritor" questline, which consist of 4 parts. Quite early you will be able to start it, and when you get back from the Demon Realm, the last part will be available (when you get "Wild Ambition" main quest).
