New Game

Below is the fastest path to completion. You cannot escape Boss battles even with the Hero's Resolve item (common sense, right?).

Chapter 1

-Malora's Garden
-Second Gate (Surprise Attack)
-Western Cloister
-Tower of Solis Antechamber
-Tower of Solis (Boss Battle at Range)
-Anywhere else

Note: if you enter Eastern Cloister before the next step, there will be a boss battle instead of an Ambush battle.

-Tower of Solis
-Eastern Cloister (Boss Encounter if visited before; Ambush if not)

Chapter 2

-Squirrels' Nest
-Gerseym Waterway (Encounter, kill Skeleton Archers to spawn Skeleton Mages, then kill Skeleton Mages for an Obsidian Daphne)
-Walk in Reverie
-The Confessional (Boss Fog of War)
-Anywhere else
-The Confessional
-Gerseym Waterway (Boss Encounter)

Chapter 3

-Hall of Nobles (Close Quarters)
-Anywhere else
-Hall of Nobles
-Walk in Reverie
-The Dungeon
-Nephelia's Madrigal
-Pilgrim's Plea (Boss Battle at Range)

Chapter 4

-Chamber of the Sun
-The Athenaeum (Boss Ambush)
-Chamber of the Sun (Boss Encounter)

New Game+

Chapter 3

-(After revisiting the Hall of Nobles) The Confessional (Fog of War; kill the Goblin Hunter for a Goblin Tank, then kill the Goblin Tank for Aphmal's Key)
-Inner Gate, open the chest
-Cross of Antonement
-Deepwater
-Tower of Nolis (Boss Encounter)
-Palace Foyer
-Western Arcade (Boss Battle at Range)
-Hall of Glory (Boss Encounter)
-Tieffle's Room
-Deepwater
-Tieffle's Room, open the chest

Chapter 4
-(After beating the Witch Kings) Tieffle's Room
-The Athenaeum
-Ancient Passage
-Western Arcade
-Lost Mausoleum (Boss Encounter, ~10 Witch King reinforcements)

Clearing the Lost Mausoleum triggers the Good Ending for the current playthrough and a permanent flag in Malora's Garden for the entire save.

If you enter Malora's Garden after this point (even on a later New Game+), you can change the enemies' difficulty and treasure chest loot to New Game levels by saying "I find it difficult". If you want New Game+ levels, say "It's not difficult at all". This does not affect rooms that can only be accessed in New Game+.

I usually don't do this, but I think that's very helpful. So I requested this to be sticky.
Hope it works out for you.
Big thanks to you. ^-^

Even though I've completed the game multiple times this walkthrough is very useful. Good stuff . I've also requested a sticky.

After looting Tieffle's Room chest, shouldn't there be another Athaneum visit?
