Necronopticous and I have been doing this challenge again recently, and we're very frustrated by mistakes and misinformation in the guides we've been following. Because of this, we decided to document the challenge ourselves, hopefully more accurately and detailed -- as well as experiment a little on our own in a twin playthrough we're doing simultaneously, hoping to optimize parts of this challenge.

Disclaimer: This is a work in progress.

Note that we'll be omitting most of the obvious details, like how to progress the story. Mostly, we'll be providing checklists (items, battle preparation and progression, steals, etc.) that are relevant to the challenge.

Alexandria Castle 70968



You have the opportunity right away to earn 10,000 Gil by impressing 100 nobles. While it's not necessary, it's recommended. Impressing 100 nobles will also earn you an early Moonstone when you talk to Brahne as Steiner.

Impressing 100 nobles is hard -- maybe impossible -- if you're emulating the game or playing it on a modern television (due to the lag they cause). If you're playing on an older television, it's actually kind of easy. I can't comment on the PC versions.

Alexandria Castle/Guardhouse

Items:

Phoenix Down


Alexandria Castle/Throne

Items:

Moonstone (100 nobles impressed) or Silk Shirt (<100 nobles impressed) when you talk to Brahne.

Items:

Phoenix Down
Phoenix Pinion


Battle prep is unnecessary at this point.

BATTLE - Steiner:

Steal Leather Hat and Silk Shirt.

BATTLE - Steiner, Weimar, and Haagen:

Kill off everyone except Garnet to end the battle quickly.


BATTLE - Steiner & Bomb:

Kill off everyone except Garnet or just keep stalling.

After collecting the one item here, you'll want to prep for a couple battles.

Items:

Phoenix Down

I watched about 10-11 minutes of the Cleyra sequence. Interesting strat with Magic Hammer. I didn't know that Black Mages teleport away when their MP is low.

I think Necronopticous and I are gonna experiment with silence and element-nullification for the Cleyra battles.
