This article will help completionists achieve the platinum trophy by providing a trophy guide. We will try to accomplish this by giving a step-by-step guide on how to get all bronze, silver, and gold trophies in the game. However, remember that you can only get some awards by increasing the game’s difficulty.
This is the only skippable trophy that can be missed; for that not to happen, you must not sell the materials of the legendary sword Gotterdammerung and craft it.
For this achievement, you need all the Patron items you can get from the Patron whisperers at the hideaway. However, they are costly.
To do a “punish,” you must hit a low-hp enemy when he is downed; even more, do this ten times to get the achievement.
You’re Not the Boss of Me
This achievement works on certain bosses. Thus, it cannot be obvious; nonetheless, to clear this quickly, you must kill a boss without taking any damage. It would be recommended to find and use the “Ring of Timely Evasion.”
Made to Be Broken
To complete this achievement, you will use the “semi-prime” mechanic, which is activated when the limit gauge is full. You have to use this mechanic 20 times to defeat an enemy.
You can use the red eikon phase shift and either shift strike or shift shot. Do this 15 times against an enemy.
Obtain the “Heatwave” ability in Main Quest 7. Activate Heatwave just before a ranged projectile hits you. Once this is done, you can counter their attack. Do this two times.
Unlock “Deadly Embrace” in Main Quest 13. Use Garudo Eikon, then defeat five enemies in the air using any attack after Deadly Embrace. Once again, do this five times to defeat the enemy.
Never Coming Down
Unlock “Gouge,” “Wicked Wheel,” and “Rook’s Gambit” in Main Quest 13. Use Wicked Wheel, switch to Garuda, and land all three moves in midair on an enemy like “Bighorn” in Rosaria; thus, use Three Reeds to unlock the trophy.
I Am the Thunder
Unlock “Blind Justice” in Main Quest 27 by equipping Ramuh Eikon. Enter slow-motion aim mode with a circle button, target enemies with lightning by holding the cursor over them, and release bolts with a circle. Repeat until the trophy unlocks. Do this 50 times.
Rod to Redemption
Unlock “Lightning Rod” in Main Quest 27, and equip it with 120 Ability Points. Cast it in battle and have the same enemy walk into it three times, making it dissipate.
Unlock “Titanic Block” in Main Quest 39 by equipping Titan Eikon. Hold the circle button just before an enemy hits you to land a Precision Block. Repeat ten times across multiple encounters, excluding Halls of Virtue.
Beat Rocking Blocks
Unlock “Titanic Block” in Main Quest 39, a basic circle ability in the Titan skill tree. Perform a perfect block when an enemy is about to hit you, then do three strikes, repeating this combo twice in a single combat encounter.
Unlock “Megaflare” in Main Quest 52, and equip Bahamut Eikon. Charge with a circle, reach Lvl. 2, and unleash Megaflare on enemies. Hits count cumulatively, 100 required across multiple uses/fights.
Such Dodge, So Mega
Unlock “Megaflare” in Main Quest 52, and equip Bahamut Eikon. Upgrade the “Wings of Light” ability to Level 4. In Rosaria > Three Reeds, enter Megaflare Charge mode before Bighorn’s attack, and precision-dodge three attacks in a row before reaching Level 4. The trophy unlocks if done correctly.
Unlock “Cold Snap” in Main Quest 62 by equipping Shiva Eikon. Press circle while Shiva Eikon is selected to freeze enemies with a special dodge (“Permafrost”). Repeat ten times; it can be farmed against the same enemy, like Bighorn in Rosaria > Three Reeds.
Unlock “Frostbite / Permafrost / Diamond Dust” in Main Quest 62, and equip Shiva Eikon. Find a group of weak enemies like four wolves in Sanbreque > Royal Meadows. Use Cold Snap to freeze three enemies, then defeat them with Diamond Dust while frozen. Fast travel to respawn enemies if needed.
Every Damn Sinew
Unlock “Zanetsuken” in Main Quest 65, and equip Odin Eikon. Press the circle button to replace Clive’s weapon, attack with the square button to charge the gauge to Level 2, and hold the square button to unleash Zanetsuken. Repeat five times.
Fistful of Steel
Equip Odin Eikon, activate “Arms of Darkness” with the circle button, and use the square button to dodge and square again for a “Steel Counter.” Repeat three times in a single combat encounter.
To fully upgrade the “Phoenix” Eikon Skill Tree, spend 13,425 Ability Points. Reset abilities by pressing Touchpad in the Abilities Menu. Upgrade Eikon-specific abilities: Phoenix Shift, Scarlet Cyclone, Rising Flames, Heatwave, Flames of Rebirth.
With Two Ds
You get potion potency rewards from sidequests. You have to upgrade consumables and then potency to their maximum.
You have to defeat ten notorious marks and monsters in the open world.
Complete a single Chronolith trial, of which there are 7 in total, one for each ability.
Dressed to the Fives
For this trophy, you must upgrade five gears, which you can do at the Blacksmith.
The Pen Is Mightier
You get letters by completing the main quest and side quest. For this achievement, you need ten letters.
The More You Know
As you progress through the game, you can speak to Harpocrates, whose knowledge will also increase. For this, you have to reach knowledge level 5 for Harpocrates.
You Can Pet the Dog
You have to pet the dog five times, which can be done after Main Quest 9.
A Fine Hound
Tell the dog Torgal to do the attack “Sic” five times.
When You Ride Alone
Finish the Side Quest, The White-Winged Wonder, where you will get a Chocobo, and then you have to mount it.
Here Be Rosfields
You have to roam all areas on the map. Some are hidden, and some are not.
After Main Quest 28, you unlock a pub called Tub & Crown. There, you have to spend 36,000 Gil.
Please consider that almost all of these trophies can not be missed except one, and to get the platinum trophy, you must complete the rest of the missions. Knowing that a farm and great gear are crucial to getting the platinum trophy is also essential.
My Take On Earning Trophies
These were all of the trophies we have been able to find for Final Fantasy 16. Hopefully, the completionist inside you will find it a little bit easier now to go after all of them. I think there is a trophy for everyone here, and by just playing the campaign, most players can get many of these trophies.
I didn’t play my campaign to collect trophies, and still, I got many of these trophies by just finishing the game once. Therefore, use this trophy guide if you plan to the completionist in Final Fantasy 16.
A gamer through and through, I’ve spent countless hours honing my skills in competitive FPS games like Counter-Strike and Valorant. When I’m not immersed in the high-stakes world of multiplayer shooters, I find solace in the mesmerizing narratives of games like The Last of Us and the Batman Arkham series.
But here’s an interesting twist – I’m not just a gaming enthusiast; I’m also an avid movie buff. Feel free to join me on Steam: Z3US
