When to beat the Shinra Box Buster challenges?

3 posts in this topic

Hello! I wanted to ask for advice on the Materia Maven trophy from Intermission: a friend told me an easy way to do this is wait for the Hard run because the hit value of the boxes doesn't change between difficulties and I would level up Yuffie and materia by then. Is this true? I've tried the challenge last night, and it wasn't all bad, but reaching 50,000 for now seems almost impossible!

The challenge difficulty doesn't change but you will do more damage due to leveling. I did it in the hard playthrough as well and it seemed a bit easier.

I got the Magnify Materia (Soldier level 1 prize) on my first run. Played a few time to see if I could get close to 50K on my Easy play through and found that my strength was quite low to some of the video guides I watched. You don't need the Gil Up and EXP Up Materia so I waited until the end of my Hard run ot come back to it, fully levelled up weapons etc. Still, it was quite an annoying trophy! (still not as bad as the 'Chocobo Rider' trophy from FFX). Materia Maven took my a fair few tries to get it (easily over an hour). The run i got it on I ended up with over 10 seconds to spare, go figure.
