  1. Probably too late for you, but maybe for others who are wondering. Izen will eventually (I forgot which level exactly, but around 60-80 somewhere ...) learn an attack that does 30 hits spread around all your enemies, by the time you're about level 80-90, you can go the place indicated on https://www.xboxachievements.com/game/seek-hearts/guide/ as the level 100 place, you'll want to find the huge standing robot that takes up all 4 enemy spaces. Guard a bit so you can have Izen hit it twice with this attack without the robot hitting back in between. To keep the combo going the others will need to attack as well. Even easier: at level 120 Lucca will learn an attack that does 50 hits ... This is also necessary to get the in-game reward for doing 30 overkill hits: hits done after the target's hp depleted.
  2. A few years later the game has changed a bit. - Reloading your save to get different spells from a boss won't work anymore. - getting 1500 damage with one ice and one fire spell and 2000 damage with one spell of your choosing has become incredible easy: fire barrage and ice barrage will do. Just keep the fire button pressed and since the reload time is so short it'll keep firing. Halfway through level 2 there's a shaman who keeps on summoning helpers, just keep firing until you get it. Marvek the emberlighter starts with fire barrage and carabel eventide starts with ice barrage. Frost cloud can't work since it divides the damage between the enemies and ice beam can't work since it only does 1400 damage, aimed at a fire critter with enough health. The fire beam was too much trouble for me as well. - freezing 5 enemies in one go: use frost cloud on the level 20 boss, he's surrounded by helpers, 5 will freeze eventually. - killing 5 enemies with one spell => in level 3 there's a place where it spawns forkbeetles, they explode with one hit. Use a beam to kill a couple, keep the beam active.
  3. Trophy wise this game is rather short and simple, it takes a few hours to compete. It took me about 4 hours (took me an hour to reach the first trophy). Since there is zero information on this game, pretty much anywhere. I've decided to write a few comments about it. The most important note: From the start of the game, follow the instructions never mind anything else. You will die doing so and this is just how the game works. By the time you enter your third play through, you can earn trophies and you'll earn quite a few really quick in this third play through. There is no auto save and you can start to save manually after having reached the third play through. The three trophies stating to upgrade stuff before tempest 12 starts, never mind that, I upgraded everything at the start of tempest 16 and they still unlocked. Spending 300 aether during one serenity: this means at the start of one tempest spend 300 on whatever. You'll have that much later on and then upgrade whatever you can in one go, that'll work. Tears of the doomed: sacrifice one mage, keep the other (pray you don't get any extra), use potions to increase defense if you can and survive. No need to do it three tempests in a row or even within the same play through. The rest pretty much will be gained during regular play through without having to do anything special. Just do what it says in the trophy description. At the start of each new play through you can chose between two randomly chosen helpers. You unlock milestones for them during regular play. It doesn't really matter which one you pick. They give a small bonus to a few things, each having their own small set of boosts, none of which are necessary. Choices made while searching for the lost magus earn you points to one of the four spells, it doesn't much matter though, pick something you like. The only spell I found any use for was the one which creates a lull tempest for one day and I unlocked that rather soon, no idea with which choice though. You will get events occasionally in which something happens and you can chose from 4 options on what to do. Two of those give a negative effect, one gives zero effect the 4th gives something positive (potions, artifact, scrolls, an extra mage). You can use scrolls to help guide you to your choices. You need to chose correctly 5 times in total, which is really easy using the scroll which shows you the right answer. However, I did keep some notes on what to chose in which event which I'll share. I doubt I came across everything and I didn't get all the right answers to the events which I did come across, but it's a start right :). rainbow serpent => use enchant magic the green deal => seal the gates I didn't write down the name, a weird kid comes knocking and wants to vist => send him away caravan => don't chose swordsman or mages, I don't know which of the other two options is the right one. the feast => circus merchant => get the troops afoot an expensive life => watch simon shadows of the past => don't chose 'follow', I don't have any other data here shorg => burn fires around the city the dopplganger => do nothing death mark => either banish or search, I don't know which is the correct one
  4. So far this game only crashes for me when trying to boot the game, fortunately only occasionally ... I swap game every hour to get an hourly bonus in the other game before going back to my main game. And right after the two skipable cut scenes the game always starts with, it can crash :S. I'm in the swamp now.
  5. That's actually what I really liked about the game (I already finished those two you mentioned ;)).. It'll play mostly by itself and I can watch anime on the 2nd tv (I got two tvs side by side, gaming on one, laptop hooked up to the other for anime watching, regular tv channels on neither tv, gaming and anime only :P). The humor is hilarious so far (in chapter 3 now), the side quests have the same quality jokes so far. I do keep notes on which enemy item drops I didn't get yet and which furniture I didn't get yet. And I'm mostly making sure I get everything before moving on to the next (side)quest. There's a fantastic guide on GameFaqs for those interested: https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/switch/240619-heroland/faqs/78092 The information about the 12 missing furniture pieces is really appreciated! *edit after having obtained the platinum* Trophy wise this game is extremely straightforward with no missable trophies: clear all story and side quest dungeons, get all enemy item drops and clear dungeon rewards, buy and use every item and weapon, that's pretty much it. Buying those last 12 furniture items mentioned above cost me only about 550.000 $tarfish (the currency), at this point I already had 2.8 million, so whatever right :). You're looking at 90-100 hours, lots of grinding and most of all, lots of funny story. I laughed so much with all the quests and side quests and even with the small scenes that aren't part of any story quest or side quest. To repeat myself: keep notes of which enemy item drops you got and which dungeon clear rewards you got. Every enemy drops at least one item, half of them drop two items. Not one enemy item drop is shared between enemies, you have to get every item drop from every enemy. Almost all dungeon clear rewards can be gotten from 2 or 3 different dungeons, again: keep notes. It's also probably a good idea to not move forward with any story or side quest until you got every enemy item drop and dungeon clear reward from the new story or side quest dungeon before moving on to the next one. Swap characters, simply play your weakest characters whenever possible so they all level up. Also distribute double items between the characters, prioritizing the ones with lowest friendship level/xp. If you want a specific dungeon clear reward: the game saves after every fight. So, do the last fight but don't open the chest. Upload your save to the psn+ cloud or to a usb flash drive, boot up the game, open the chest and if it's not the item you want simply put back your safe and try again, and again, and again until you get the item you want. You can probably do this for each fight for getting the item drops you want as well. I only did this for getting the dungeon clear rewards of the last post game dungeon after haven gotten everything else by simply grinding it out. Have fun! I certainly did ^_^.
  6. The game crashed a few more times for me, but booting it up and loading the game was enough in those instances. These crashes, however, just kept occurring over and over until I changed my play through as described. The game tells a pretty good story, which I enjoyed and the game play works well enough. Have fun :).
  7. Well, I found the solution before I posted my problem. I'm still posting this in case others encounter this problem as well. chapter 19 game breaking bug The problem: In chapter 19, Aliena needs to speak Walter so she can get an audience with the lady Regan. At the end of the audience with Lady Regan William barges in and attacks Aliena. If you gave the knife to Elizabeth like you were supposed to for the other trophy in the dlc, Elizabeth will kill William and then the game will always crash when trying to load the scene after William saw the devil in the fire. The solution that worked for me: I had a manual save at chapter 17, when Aliena was moving through the storm, just before meeting Elizabeth. This time, don't give Elizabeth the knife, then play all the way through the audience with Lady Regan normally and this time Aliena killed William with her own knife via the QTE. That did the trick. chapter 20 game breaking bug A bit later, in episode 20 there's a similar issue when tracking down Remigius as Jonathan: don't talk to Alfred and his daughter while on your way to Remigius in the church. If you do talk to Alfred the game will always crash after saving Remigius. Hopefully these solutions work for others who encounter these similar issues.
  8. That one doesn't cover the last few chapters of the third book, this one covers the entire game, though from the xbox perspective. The xbox version has a few more achievements in book 2 and 3 that the ps4 version has, that's the only difference. https://www.trueachievements.com/game/The-Pillars-of-the-Earth/walkthrough/1
  9. The final game size doesn't even go up by one GB as usual.
  10. Creating a real trophy guide is beyond my skill set at the moment and beyond the data I gathered while playing (I didn't take notes ..). This does however have all the information necessary to get that platinum. Feel free to use this info for whatever you like. Note: I played the entire game standing with the motion controller. I tried sitting with the ps4 controller and had no clue what to do, so I switched and got the hang of it. Mostly this game is pretty straightforward. Hit the ball towards the hole and get it in, eventually. You'll get better as you play more. I won't be mentioning every trophy, most are self explanatory and simply require you to play the game. 'too close for comfort' => start a round, maybe hit the ball once, stare at the caddy for a few seconds and the caddy will react and unlock the trophy. Unlock new stuff: I didn't take notes on when exactly anything unlocked. Whenever possible: play a combination you haven't played before for the 'regulations complete' trophy and all will unlock soon enough. You need to replay some combinations in the beginning. 'regulations complete' => When the game starts, go to other and then to top scores. Here you see a score chart and if you go to the tornado cup tab you see the same chart. Both charts have to be completely filled with any kind of score. So, on each of the three areas you have to play the 3 hole, both 9 holes and the 18 hole round, both with the normal tee and the long tee. Both the normal cup and the tornado cup charts have to be filled. This means it is a really good idea, whenever you unlock a new area or round or the long tee to mix the rounds you're playing. By filling the score chart you'll unlock everything that can be unlocked along the way. Try to not use the tornado cup whenever possible, so long as you can play a new round for the score chart. The statement elsewhere on the forum that everything can be unlocked with the tornado cup is hereby falsified, as you need to completely fill the normal cup score chart as well. 'achieve 300 holes' => Filling both score charts requires a minimum of (6*18 + 6*9*2 + 6*3)*2 = 468 holes played. And actually more since you need to replay combinations to unlock new ones, at least in the beginning. caddy related trophies => Play rounds with Riko, this will unlock new colors for her cloths, the 4 scenes (they seem random), the 2nd outfit. Switch outfit and play some more rounds to unlock the 3rd outfit. When you have every scene and outfit unlocked for Riko switch to Lucy and repeat the process. You'll have everything caddy related unlocked long before you're done filling both score charts. 'crack shot' => This is one of the two lucky shots you have to get. This is possibly best done with the normal cup as the tornado cup can suck in the ball if it would otherwise have landed in position which would have gotten you this trophy. Also try to get used to the big magnum clubs. You'll hit the ball really far with those. On a par 5 it's usually easy to get onto the green in 3 shots with this, on your third shot you have to get within 3 feet of the cup. 'everybody's birdie' => You need to get a birdie (or better) on every hole just once, no matter the clubs, tee or cup. I had some birdies on the long tee, most on the regular tee. One birdie I only achieved with the regular cup and the rest with the tornado cup. It's all fine. The trophy unlocks when you finish the round in which you got your last missing birdie. To check your progress go to other => stats => top scores. On the right of the board you can select the three areas and flip between normal and long tee. You can't chose the hole you want to play, though you can try to reload the 3 hole round as much as you like to get your missing hole. However, I preferred to play a 9 hole round, the reloading might seem fast, but the randomness of getting the hole you want and the loading times wasn't worth it for me. Take your pick. With the normal cup score chart filled and some rounds played with the tornado cup. You should have a feeling for the game. If possible you even have a feeling for the big magnum clubs. With still most rounds to go on the tornado score chart for the 'regulations complete' trophy it is now time to really go for those birdies. Using the big magnum clubs you can really aim for getting a 'green in regulations' on every course (get onto the green so your next shot would qualify as a birdie) and then hit the ball into the tornado. When putting while using the tornado cup it is not possible to hit the ball too hard. With the normal cup you can hit the side of the cup and instead of the ball going in it bounces off. With the tornado cup it'll go in even if the ball passes the left or right side of the cup, up to 2 feet away from the cup, just aim and smash that ball. The 30 feet put shouldn't be hard by now either (I ended up getting a 76 feet put .. aim and smash, it'll go in). 'my first hole-in-one'=> This is the other lucky shot, probably best attempted on the forest area on any par 3. The tornado cup and beginner's clubs are useful for this. This will also unlock the trophies for getting an eagle and the chip-in, if you haven't done so by now.
  11. It unlocked for me fine with closing the game before every fight and upon each final boss screen and uploading the saves to the ps+ cloud. I ended up not dying at all so I never had to load back my save. The game also crashed two times during my no-death run (and never in my all-collectable run), which didn't affect my trophy. I just uploaded the save and continued.
  12. I had the exact same issue. Thanks for finding and especially for posting the solution. Worked exactly like you said.
  13. I didn't want to run the risk of the game loading my profile and thereby making certain trophies harder or impossible so I never bothered to check if I could import my ps4 progress to my ps5. However, since the game is so short (can be done in a single day if you have to), I'm just gonna do it all again, for fun, for kicks, for checking out how the ps5 works. This'll be my first game on the ps5. I was however pleasantly surprised I could grab the ps5 upgrade version because I bought the ps4 version. And with this being a short game I am going to play through it twice and trophies for it twice.
  14. Good luck!
  15. Necessary: a move controller + camera and the wonderbook (bought or maybe downloaded and printed (and the paper glued/taped on cardboard?)). The book is 12 pages and a front and cover, which are all necessary+used. I simply bought the game 'book of spells' with the wonderbook as a package. This is also a harry potter inspired game which uses the book. The game was designed with having the book. The camera sees the book, sees the pages flip, sees which page you're on, sees how your move controller moves over the book. Each page has like a precursor of a QR code on it, if you can download and print it, that might work. put the printed pages on cardboard I guess to make sure the paper doesn't slip when you move the move controller over it (chopping and cutting potion ingredients for example).
