This sticky is to fill in/revise certain sections on the main sticky

How do you get all of the endings?


Bad Ending: In Chapter 15, during the cutscene in Marksburg, keep selecting R1.

Normal Ending: In Chapter 16, after beating the final boss, keep selecting L1.
Alternate path to increase Elle’s affinity: L1, R1, R1, L1.

True Ending: In Chapter 16, after beating the final boss, keep selecting R1.
Alternate path to increase Elle’s affinity: L1, R1, R1, R1.

Debt Ending: Pay off the debt in its entirety. Note that the last 100 Gald cannot be paid off until post-game. Talk to Nova in Trigleph to pay off the last 100 Gald.

Cameo Ending: Beat the cameo battle in the Elite Party rank in the Coliseum. To access the cameo battle, you must complete both Femme Fatale quests at the job board, and beat the EX Dungeon’s final boss. Note that the Elite Party rank is only available post-game.

Note that it is possible to get all of the endings in a single playthrough, as getting any ending allows you to save and continue from right before you got that ending, while retaining any bonuses and grade obtained by getting that ending.



What is missable?

The Bad Ending is missable.

The Chromatus Control trophy is missable. After Chapter 13, use Chromatus fewer than 50 times, until you beat the game (note that the bad ending counts as completing the game).

There are four unique weapons which can be found in chests in Chapter 10’s dungeon. One of them, the Dual Edge, is required to unseal one of Milla’s cameo weapons. The four chests are labeled 24-27 on this map:

http://h1g.jp/tox2/index.php?%E3%82%A6%E3%83%97%E3%82%B5%E3%83%BC%E3%83%A9%E6%B9%96%E8%B7%A1

Milla’s first three Character Story chapters are missable.

The cat “Catstantine the Third”, which is associated with the “Meeting with Julius” job, is missable.

The following quests obtained at the job board are missable: The Girl's Gift, Elle's Belongings, the "Traces of Kinship" series, The Father's Gift, Rideaux's Request, and Meeting with Julius.

Finally, the Hallowed Doll accessory is missable. To obtain it, complete Rowen’s second chapter before Chapter 12. Then, during Chapter 12, go to the time capsule in front of Sharil Manor in Chapter 12's fractured Sharilton, and choose to remove all items from the time capsule.



How do you unlock the different ranks at the Coliseum?

Tag mode:

Novice: Automatically unlocked upon reaching Xian Du.

Advanced: Finish Chapter 12, and complete Novice Tag three times.

Elite: Finish the game, and complete Advanced Tag three times.
You must leave Xian Du to get a skit which will make the Elite ranks available.

Note that the characters used are irrelevant; any characters can be used, including just the same ones repeatedly.

Party mode:

Novice: Complete Novice Tag, and beat the following Elite Monsters:
Scorpactus, Veywind Eye, Heavy Claw, Greater Demon, Radiant Horn, Moralzamm, Graddic Claw, Bluetaur

Advanced: Finish Chapter 12, unlock Novice Party, and beat the following Elite Monsters:
Ghastly Stump, Arrow Folzam, Veywind Stinger, Krudis Eye, Exoplasma, Hammerzamm, Wind Racer, Dark Teagle

Elite: Finish the game, unlock Advanced Party, and beat every Elite Monster except Siennabronc.
You must leave Xian Du to get a skit which will make the Elite ranks available.

What is the fastest way to level?


During the main story, enemies in fractured dimensions scale to your level, and are a good source of experience. Note that enemies in fractured dimensions only scale to a limited extent (up to the 70s).

In post-game, be sure to use EXP food purchased from Leronde. EX Elite Monsters give a lot of experience, as well as the EX Dungeon’s bosses. Once you’re able to do it, the cameo battle via Elite Party mode at the Coliseum also gives a lot of experience.

Sidenote: Whenever an elite monster spawns in an area, all regular enemies in that area get a level boost; this is also useful for leveling. I find the best source of xp before you hit the EX dungeon is in the Nala Lava Tubes after the Elite Monster spawns there, as there are regular mobs of 2 or 3 Gentlefreet, and with no xp modifier I can easily get 10k to 16k experience per encounter..

That's very useful info! I never would have thought to do that, thanks a lot. I might actually go to the areas Siennabronc EX is at...

This doesn't apply to EX Elites or Siennabronc.

Ah, right that's true (was kind of disappointed about that, personally, but oh well)

The Nala Lava Tube Elite spawns after Chapter 14-I distinctly remember this because I was grinding out in the Lava Tubes before I continued, and wound up 20 levels overbuff to see the bad ending in Chapter 15 as a challenge.

But yeah, no, Siennabronc doesn't upgrade the enemies, presumably because having Xagut suddenly be about Lv65 that early in the game would screw some people up. (I know he spawns other places too, but Xagut is where I went to kill him)
