  • Welcome to my Ys: Memories of Celceta trophy guide! This is one of the easiest Ys games when it comes to trophies. If you follow my guide, you will not miss a thing and prepare for the Nightmare run easily. 

    Step 1 - Play the game on Easy, while doing everything you can along the way

    I suggest following my missables guide in order not to miss any side quest or monster entries that are missable. Even some quest outcomes can be fail if you don't do them right. You will need 2 playthroughs to get all the weapons (certain side quests rewards you with weapons for 3 out of 6 characters, so you need different choices on the new game plus). Some boss fights spawn mobs, you need to kill at least 1 to get the monster entry in your book.

    Ys: Memories of Celceta - Chronological Missables Guide

    Save your game before the final boss (Iris Dungeon, Central Area, if you move further north from the teleport momument there, you've gone too far). Keep this save if you need to finish up some unfinished business. Finishing the game creates a Clear save data which you can load and continue while having your equipment, money, items and almost everything.

    I suggest grinding till lv.60 and maxing our Adols equipment.
    Ys: Memories of Celceta - Nightmare Playthrough Preparation (Gold, Exp, Skill grind/farming)

    Since you can "cheat" for some trophies, like controlling each character for 5 hours, there is not much to mention to keep in your head while playing, everything can be farmed easily and fast.

    Step 2 - Beat the game on Nightmare difficulty.

    Load your Clear game data and run through the game. It should be easy if you prepared correctly.

    Step 3 - Finish the Time Trials and Boss Rush modes

    Playing the Clear Game data unlocks those trials. Check details on how to cheese this step.

    Timeless Adventurer
    Acquired all trophies.

    Unlock all other trophies.

    Master Cartographer
    GRIND

    Completed the Map of Celceta.

    You need to get 100% of the map progress and report to Griselda (northeast building in Casnan City). The trick with this one is that you need to hug the walls of areas when you explore them. You can miss some % easily if you don't do it like that (I was missing 0,7% when i reached the end). You can press the touch pad to bring the map and try to notice the faint color on the areas you did not uncovered. Some middle parts will stay this way forever and are not reachable, so have that in mind as well.

    Dungeons only count for little % when you enter them, their reveal of the map will not add to final %. Map progress will transfer to the new game plus, so you can continue then, or you can re-visit the world and hug the walls. The Temple of the Sun is the last area, when you enter that one you should get the trophy if you have 100%. Happy hugging!

    Memories Unfogged
    Restored all lost memories.

    There are 36 memories in the game. 16 of those will be unlocked automatically during the story. For some you need to sleep in the tents as you explore the map, so make sure to sleep on every one of those (those still count as story-related and I dont think you can even miss them). The rest are optional and quite easy to find, which this video covers for you.

    Stupendous Scavenger
    GRIND

    Discovered every resource point.

    There are 282 Resource Points in the game. The ones on the map and inside dungeons count, and those are the green vines and grey stone icons on the map. This is hard to record and do, so for this one you will have to be really thourough through the game. The progress carries over to your new game +, so you can do this as continued effort.

    All the Things
    GRIND
    MISSABLE

    Acquired at least one of every item.

    You need to have ALL of the items in your possesion. One Item can be bought from the shop and costs 1 million Gil. I suggest leaving that one for the end, save before it, buy, when trophy pops, load the game so you have the money.

    You also need to be careful about missable weapons that will be a reward from weapon testing quests. There are many accessories to be crafted and you can also upgrade your artifacts.

    For this trophy you need to have all Beast, Plant, and Mineral materials. Some Plant Materials can only be acquired by exchanging common materials at merchants. Also, some Mineral materials (ingots, gems) can only be acquired by refining minerals. The Gold Pedestal Replica (found in the Nameless Ruin near the Sun Stone) and the Gold Pedestal will probably be missing, both are sold at the blacksmith in Casnan for 100,000 and 1,000,000 Gil.

    Jack of All Trades
    GRIND

    Mastered every skill.

    First, you need to learn ALL the skills from ALL the characters. Then you need to master them (to lv.3). If you follow the next video, you can grind this quite fast, and for the full list of skills and how to get them you can visit the following link:

    Ys: Memories of Celceta - Skill List

    5:32 - Farm and Grind in Lake Tolmes Ruins: Equip Silver Axe, use only Adol (or Slash-oriented members) and farm Titanic Bones (can be sold for 1000G per piece)
    6:49 - Combine previous step to farm Skills: Equip Courage Scarf which will replenish your Skill gauge and spam like crazy

    Only the Best Will Do
    GRIND

    Enhanced a weapon or armor to its limit.

    The max limit is 72. You need a lot of money for that. Check out my video guide on how to get this fast.

    5:32 - Farm and Grind in Lake Tolmes Ruins: Equip Silver Axe, use only Adol (or Slash-oriented members) and farm Titanic Bones (can be sold for 1000G per piece)

    Money For Something
    GRIND

    Amassed one million gold.

    This one can be obtained in few ways. You can save your progress and sell everything you own and reach 1 million (if you have so many items), or you can grind. Doing the first option means you can load your game after trophy popped so you don't actually lose the items. Grinding is a normal method.

    5:32 - Farm and Grind in Lake Tolmes Ruins: Equip Silver Axe, use only Adol (or Slash-oriented members) and farm Titanic Bones (can be sold for 1000G per piece)

    Sea of Trees Unbroken

    There are 7 obstacles, you will probably get this naturally when you aim for 100% of the map.

    1. Log: From Comodo, go south until you can use an exit to the east in the Gidona Crater. You'll enter Forest of Dawn: East, from here follow the path and you'll find the log.

    2. Log: From the teleport monument near Selray go east and enter the Forest of Dawn: West. Go to the next area in the Forest of Dawn: West (the one with 7 Rangoas) and go all the way north to find the log.

    3. Drawbridge: Go west from Comodo in the Gidona Crater and enter Forest of Dawn: Stream.

    4. Drawbridge: From the Ancient Burrow teleport go west until you see an entrance to the north. Use it to enter the Forest of Dawn: Stream.

    5. Honey Comb: After clearing the events in Highland, the storms will disappear in the Sanctuary of Storms and you can go west from the Tower of Providence to the Table Mountain: Summit. Go to the most southern part to cut it down. Control Karna and use her special skill to cut it down to create a path.

    6. Hole emitting a poison cloud: In the eastern part of the Ashen Forest: Miasmic Road. Use Frieda and  her special skill to freeze the hole and create a path.

    7. Stone Bridge: At the southern part of Elduke (south from it). Stand on the pressure plate and the bridge will extend.

    Valorous Vanquisher

    Skill finish is when you kill the enemy with the skill. This is really hard to miss, keep spaming those skills and you should be good.

    Excellent kill is when you kill an enemy using its weakness type of attack. You can check that in your Monster Journal, but this should come naturally. Duran is strong agains armored enemies, Adol agains plants...

    MISSABLE

    Defeated Duren in one-on-one combat.

    Unlocked after clearing Ancient Burrow. If you talk to the girl at the highest point in this settlement, you will soon initiate a battle with Duran. Losing means you will miss out on Duran monster entry, thus missing the Monster Meister trophy. SAVE before this quest, make sure you are at least up to level 15-16, buy the best equipment and defeat him. Doing so will grant you 2000G x2.

    0:01 - Duran: Beat Duran in the "Sword Training" side quest in Comodo Village (Better Man Trophy)

    Waking Dream
    Cleared the game on Nightmare difficulty.

    Completing the game on any difficulty prepares you for the Nightmare run. I strongly suggest playing on Easy first, collect everything and grind/prepare for the Nightmare run. This makes it very easy. Mostly everything carries over so you have all the equipment and items.

    Reckless Abandon
    Defeated a boss in Time Attack in thirty seconds or less.

    Time Trials and Boss Rush modes unlocks when you load the clear game data. Then you can choose Memories from your menu and do these challenges. The trick is to lower the difficutly and save your game, thus making it adjustable to your difficulty. I don't think you will have any issues with this.

    Like the Wind
    Defeated a boss in Time Attack without taking damage.
