One of the best JRPGs this gen. Total of about 70ish hours to complete everything in the game (everything short of maxing out every familiar). Longest grind was the stupid scrolls.. even the Guardian wasnt too fond of giving them out and farming Tonkers got boring really quick.
How hard is this platinum? I just reached postgame and had completed all the possible bounties and sidequests you could in the regular game. So that leaves about 28 or so in post, but what's all this business about farming scrolls?
then I shall make a point of trying to mug every gold enemy I find while I am walking about.
I see that I need to alchemize 120 *different* items (as in not just 120 of some easy item?). That sounds pretty time consumingly terrible, and then 250 different familiars, as in different species so not just 50 different Miteys?
Because I can get Mitey to love me all day long if that's all it takes, but seeing as I don't even have the alchemize 10 things trophy, I'm guessing that one is going to take me the longest.
Yes on all accounts, altho None of those tasks are as hard as they may sound. Whats gonna take the bulk of your time is farming those scrolls. Dont try to steal from every gold mob because the only one that you can steal it from is the Honkey Tonker that spawns in Tombstone Trail (and another mob in the Marshes, but I found that very annoying to even find the right one).
For the familiarizer trophy, you can capture the lowest level familiar and fully evolve it, that'll count as three different captures (four if you get both final forms). Not as hard as it sounds once you get the hang of it, since getting xp post/late game is a joke.
