100% achievement guide for Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection. I’ll attempt to cover everything you need to know, do and when you need to do it.

 
 

Introduction

 
This is an achievement guide for Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection. There’s a full game walkthrough and separate information dumps if there’s something in particular you’re looking for. There’s likely to be spoilers depending on where you look, as is the nature of walkthrough/achievement guides. 
 
You can obtain all achievements in one playthrough, though you may want to wait until New Game+ to get everything. New Game+ unlocks new dungeons, keeps model progress, character note progress, enemy info progress, adds extra model collection, allows replaying of the final boss and a few other things. It’s some cool stuff if you’re interested in unlocking everything the game has to offer. 
 
I’d recommend playing through the game normally, simply focusing on the story with the intent on farming out the achievements in New Game+. You could then use the walkthrough as a checklist guide for the miss-able Nosey Neighbor achievement and such. Ultimately it’s up to you to decide how you want to play it. 
 
If there’s anything I missed/any questions/other important things you’d like me to add in for the guide, let me know. 
 
To do: 
Boss strategy/attacks – final boss and semi-final G-Colosseum. 
New game+ all info/bonuses

Walkthrough Pt. 1

 
Notes 
 
This guide will take you through the game and will grab every Nosey Neighbor character note along the way. Most achievements can be finished up in the end game section. Final boss achievement/Nosiest Neighbor will finish in the Point of No Return section, so you can reload an earlier save to continue playing after you’ve obtained those achievements should they not be your final ones. 
 
New Game Start 
 
You start the game as Ragna at Brandy Hill. Make your way up the hill to your crashed plane. There’s 3 pots that can be smashed on the hill for 100~ penne. Penne is your currency. You’ll obtain penne from breaking pots, objects and killing enemies. Defeat the tutorial enemy to get treated to cutscenes. When you regain control, you’ll be in Artte Village. The game lets you save often, and has many save slots. Make use of them in case you accidentally miss something important. It’ll cut down on reload/backtracking/frustration. 
 
To start progress on the Nosey Neighbor, talk to everyone in town. Some later events/character information may require previous characters to have been talked to. Most characters can be talked to up to 3 times for new dialogues. The exception is a few with [talk], like Caldina at the Hunter’s Guild. She’ll spout lots of tips and hints before repeating. There’s a few cases where X character needs to be talked to before Y tells you an info. I’ll make note of it when the time comes. Before talking to anyone, you’ll be at 7/252 notes. Ragna image, Miriam image, Theo image, Mei image, Alwen image, Ragna #1, Alwen #1 are all automatically unlocked.

When you’re ready to leave Artte Village, you should be at 33/252 character notes. Buy some bombs with your penne from Medicine Peddler as you’ll need them in dungeons to destroy rocks/cannons. You can hold up to 99 bombs. On the world map there’s a number of locations you can visit. Plot wise the Secundum Mines to the south is the next location. To continue Nosey Neighbor progress, first go to every location but Secundum Mines. Let’s start with Artte Airstrip to the west of Artte Village. Miriam sells bombs and widgets. Widgets are UI tools. They can be moved/turned off in the options menu. Some are useful, some are not. You need to obtain all of them for an achievement in one playthrough (There’s a Widget for That). 
 
==Artte Airstrip==

Leave Gloomgeld Woods and go to Crystal Valley. 
 
==Crystal Valley==

Leave Crystal Valley and go to Secundum Mines. Castle Moonbria has nothing at the moment. 
 
==Secundum Mines== 
Scene on entry 
=Mine – Entrance= 
Scene on entry 
Service Penguin image (cutscene, left side of mine) 
 
Head to the middle path for the first dungeon. 
 
Dungeons consist of three floors. You get a medal on completion based on performance: Bronze/Silver/Gold/Platinum. Break all pots, don’t take any damage and beat the level within a certain time for platinum. There’s a widget from Miriam called Scoreboard that tracks these things for easy reference. You can always replay missions later when you’re stronger to do them quicker, and some missions you won’t be able to platinum first try anyway as you’ll be lacking certain tools. 
 
Getting all 48 Mysterious Treasures is not required for achievements, but they tend to give nice penne bonuses along with a big bonus for finishing each set. Only Captain 21’s parts are required for [Heavy Petting] achievement. 
 
Alwen uses long range magic, she has a mana bar that has a recharge time when empty. Ragna is melee, but his kills refill some of the mana bar. Alwen’s magic can turn on lightbulbs, hit distant targets, break pots. Ragna can turn off lightbulbs, activate switches/buttons and break barrels/cracked walls. Large rocks/cannons need to be bombed with the consumable item. 
 
 

Walkthrough Pt. 2

 
Food is both a healing source and experience. Saving up 10 of one item and trading to Huang at the Panda Inn grants you 1 item that is worth more EXP. For example: 10 Cucumber Rolls (HP: 5, EXP: 4) exchanges into 1 Seven-Herb Porridge (HP: 15, EXP: 60). 
 
For this dungeon you’ll want to eat food to hit level 2/3. You can momentarily skip the ! warning sign on the third floor and head right for a slot machine. Smash the slot machine with Ragna at the right time to get more free food, one time only. Eat up and then head back to the ! warning sign and plow through the Mega Blue Jelly miniboss. At level 1 Alwen will do 1 damage to the boss. Level 3 Alwen does 7. 
 
Grab the nearby chest for Mysterious Treasure (Topaz). Head back to the slot machine and go through the door to finish the level. 
 
Cutscene. A Rest Stop save station will be before/after all dungeon levels. You can use Alwen’s magic (Menu>Navi>Warp) to teleport back to Artte Village to donate your Mysterious Treasure (Topaz) to the Hunter’s Guild for 500 penne. If you have 980 penne, you can grab the Earrings from Annette’s Boutique and equip them for +1 Mag to make Alwen do more damage. You could also opt to save up 2,500 penne and buy a pet from Bianz instead at Roalta Village. 
 
Pets autoloot coin/item drops and can fight, gaining abilities as they level. They max out at level 9. There’s an achievement [Heavy Petting] for levelling up 6 pets to level 9. Cat/Bird/Dog are from Bianz, Robot is from mysterious treasure Captain 21 set, Kobold is hidden in a late game dungeon, Fairy is bought late game and Penguin is NG+ but not required for achievement. Cat likes to swat bombs around, bird makes bombs and dog digs up money/healing items. Dog is the safest bet for now. 
 
Any time that you switch floors in a dungeon, all enemies will respawn. Warp back to Secundum Mines, Mine – Junction to continue. You can backtrack to Mine – Entrance Level 3 from here and re-fight the Mega Blue Jelly if you need some quick penne to buy the Earrings/pet. When you are ready to continue head to the right side of Mine – Junction for a scene with Odessa. Afterwards head left to the green sign Level 02 and enter Magistone Quarry. 
 
==Mine – Junction== 
Right side, scene. Odessa image, Odessa #1, Ragna #2 (cutscene) 
==Magistone Quarry== Level 2 
Floor 2: Swiss Cheese x1, Mysterious Treasure (Apatosaurus Leg Bones 980p) 
Floor 3: Bomb x3, Bomb x3 (after Batcoot miniboss) 
Blue chest after dungeon: A-Parts. 
 
Take the A-Parts to Artte Airstrip, Gashler’s Garage and talk to Miriam. Then talk to Gashler to upgrade Ragna’s Anchor Gear. [Make it COOLER!] (improved critical hit rate). Warp back to Secundum Mines, Junction – Mines. Take the right path this time. 
 
==Spiderweb Burrows==Level 2 
Floor 2: Egg (chest after first bell), Sentinel’s Gauntlets (chest after second bell) 
Floor 3: Inaccessible chest (Need Anchor Gear Claw upgrade to move giant mushroom to the pressure plate) 
 
Save game. This is the last chance to talk to all NPCs for [Nosey Neighbor] before they move. Character notes should be 61/252 at this point. 
 
Proceed down the CAUTION!! tunnel to the first boss. Cutscene first, then fight. 
 
==Terra Arachnid: Arch Shelob== 
Smash Shelob’s feet with Ragna. After destroying one foot, Shelob will topple over for some free smashing time. After all feet are destroyed, Shelob now dangles in the air from it’s spider web. Use Alwen’s magic to shoot the spider to death. Cutscene, acquire Alwen’s Quake magic. 
 
<Achievement – Mine-r Setbacks> 
 
Rue image, Rue #1, Montblanc image (Cutscenes) 
 
Go to the world map, then back to Secundum Mines and head inside. Service Penguin will be out of position. She’ll hint at you to use your Quake Magic to break the barrier from earlier. You can choose to do the dungeon now, or you can head back to Artte Village and exchange food/turn in treasure/work on [Nosey Neighbor]. I’ll assume you went back to town first. 
 
==Artte Village== 
Scene on entry 
Caldina #1 (talk to Caldina once) 
Greyn #1 (talk to Greyn three times) 
Hattie #1 (talk to Hattie twice)

Shester #1 (talk to Shester twice) 
 
At Roalta Village Wade wants to trade his Solomon’s Ring for a Pizza. You have to exchange 10x Swiss Cheese at Huang for a Pizza. You’ll only have 2 Swiss Cheese at this point if you saved them. You can obtain more at Ordium Shrine really soon. Keep this in mind and we’ll come back to it shortly. 
 
==Roalta Village== 
Bianz #1 (talk to Bianz twice)

==Secundum Mines: Mine – Entrance== 
Go left up the path to meet Service Penguin. She sees your Pink Ticket and opens the yellow door. Go in for a cutscene. 
 
==G-Colosseum== 
Gallandeau #1 (enter G-Colliseum cutscene) 
Lotte image (talk to Lotte once) 
Lotte #1 (talk to Gallandeau three times) 
 
The G-Colosseum is where you can replay boss battles, compete in special 1v1 “Cup” battles, view your model collection and purchase some special items from the vending machine. The amount of Cup battles available is based on your Hunter Rank. Win each battle once for a model and a prize. Subsequent wins get you a piece of food. You can also earn a model of Ragna and Alwen for losing with both characters in any match. The Maurice and Odessa battles are pretty easy for Alwen to win. Gallandeau will likely destroy you at this point. Defeating Maurice gives a Haramaki (2 Str, -1 Mag) and Odessa gives Salubrious Charm (Poison Immunity). 
 
When you’re done at the G-C, warp to Roalta Village and exit to the right. Head to Ordium Shrine. 
 
==Ordium Shrine== 
Scene on entry. If you played Zwei: The Arges Adventure you’ll recognize these two as Pokkle and Pipiro. They can’t get across so they leave. Examine the spot they were at for another cutscene. Entry to Ordium Shrine is now open! Before we go inside, warp back to Artte Village. 
 
Pipiro image, Pipiro #1, Pokkle image, Pokkle #1 (first cutscene) 
 
==Artte Village: Panda Inn== 
Scene with Pipiro. Talk to her again for another scene. Pokkle #2 (2nd cutscene) 
 
Head back to Ordium Shrine and head inside for a scene. Left side is blocked by fire pillars. Right side is locked. Only way through is forward. The first dungeon Esonarthex is where you can get Swiss Cheese. The red jelly enemies (Parajel) and blue Leaper Newts can drop Swiss Cheese. You need 10 to exchange into Pizza with Huang, then trade it to Wade in Roalta Village for Solomon’s Ring and Wade #1. Equip the ring and you can now talk to animals! 
 
==Solomon Ring NPCs== 
==Roalta Village== 
Cows get names of Yoshie and Sachiko 
==Artte Village== 
Mrs.Mondriaan’s cats get names of Mii, Chocolat, Mr.Tiddles 
Mr Lipton’s dog is named Clark 
==Ordium Shrine: Shrine – Entrance==

==Ordium Shrine: Shrine – Junction: Aquatic Sanctuary== Level 5 
Floor 1: Chest 1: Lolipop. Chest 2: Hauberk. Chest 3: Lolipop. 
 
After the dungeon you’ll get B-Parts from the blue chest. Take these over to Gashler at Artte Airstrip, Gashler’s Garage to get the Claw Gear anchor upgrade. Now you can grab and drag heavy objects, or pick up small objects and carry them. Warp to Ordium Shrine, Shrine – Junction to continue. Take the right path. 
 
==Ordium Shrine: Shrine – Junction: Path to the Altar== Level 5 
Floor 2: Chest 1: Hunter’s Nose. Chest 2: Dorayaki 
Floor 3: Watch out at the final door. There’s a mimic that spawns in the air and it’s ready to bite you. Use the new Claw Gear to drag the metal block away for your slot machine. Character notes should be 87/252. This is the last chance to grab any missing info, as the NPCs will move again after the next boss. 
 
==Ordium Shrine: Ephemeroga== Level 6 
Cutscene, then boss battle. Ephemeroga can stab the ground multiple times, spit out a fish enemy, spit 4 pools of acid and slam it’s claw down in a pillar of ice magic. Use Ragna to stab the fish enemy. Use Alwen to blast Ephemeroga. At around 7,000hp, Ephemeroga covers the platform in ice. At around 5,000 hp, Ephemeroga goes for a swim while bombarding you with water bubbles. The platform will move based on your position, making movement tricky. Jump around to avoid being hit. You can fall off the platform, taking damage if you do. Depending on your level/damage output, it’ll likely swim 2-3 times before you defeat it.

Destroy one set of vines to spawn another, three times total. It’s not required to destroy all vines to win, but it does make it easier.

Use Alwen for this fight. Keep a medium distance while circling and jumping as needed. Fafnir has a variety of attacks. It’ll barrage you with fireballs from it’s mouth and wings. It can send out ground shockwaves (jump over them). If you get too close, it’ll spin and sweep with it’s tail. When it flies, the shockwaves are amplified. It can spin and leave a trail of shockwaves. It can also fire barrage you while in the air. Hitting Fafnir with Alwen can cause it to plummet, allowing for some free smashing time with Ragna. 
 
After the battle, get Inferno magic. Cutscene into cutscene into cutscene. Then you get to play villager roundup. Grab the villagers from behind with Claw Gear and carry them to Alwen. Afterwards, cutscene into cutscene. When you resume control, it is now night. Castle Moonbria is the next story destination. For now, there’s Nosey Neighbor information to get so let’s go get it!

Walkthrough Pt. 5

 
You should have enough points to rank up to Rumor Chaser (180 – I was at 193 here). You’ll get a Virtuous Charm (prevents curse) as a reward. Subaru Cup in the G-Colosseum will be open now as well. Use Alwen to easily defeat Subaru there for the Bomber’s Crest (prevents explosion damage from allies and enemies) and Subaru model. The Bomber Crest will make your Bird pet friendly when it reaches max rank and lays explosive eggs. While you’re at the G-Colosseum, pick up Accessory Slot 6 from the vending machine if you have 20,000p. 
 
Middle path 
==Inner Quarters== Level 13 
Floor 2: Chest 1: Werewolf Ring (STR: 3, MAG: 3, DEF: 3) – Hit the switch behind the spike wall on the right side of the map, then head back to the centre of the map to the now opened room. This accessory inflicts poison, paralysis, confusion and curse on you. Equip the Salubrious, Autonomous, Equanimous and Virtuous charms if you want to use the Werewolf Ring while also being status immune. 
Floor 3: Chest 1: Chestnut Jelly. Chest 2: Mysterious Treasure (Apatosaurus Bones 980p)- The locked gate in front of the chest is actually fake. Use Claw Gear to drag it into the room to claim the chest. 
 
Save and proceed ahead for the next boss. Cutscene then fight. 
 
==Werewolf Dyguld== Level 14 
Ragna can make really short work of Dyguld with the Werewolf Ring/4 charms/Soldier’s Gloves equipped while using Flame Gear. Trade blows and beat him with ease. 
 
Cutscene after battle. Dyguld #1 (after cutscene) 
 
You can try to go back upstairs to get told no. Do so twice. 
 
Right Path 
==Burial Grounds== Level 13 
Floor 2: Chest 1: Mysterious Treasure – (Trilobite 300p). There are 6 wisps here with golden crowns. Use Claw Gear to grab them and deliver them to the flaming pit. One wisp will be off in a side room sleeping, the others will be in the hallways near the flaming pit. Chest 2: Chocolate – Near sleeping wisp. 
Floor 3: Chest 1: Rider Suit – Save the small mushroom from it’s captors, then Claw Gear it and carry it through the level. There will be a big mushroom behind a door eventually, and the door will open if you present the small mushroom to it. Drag the big mushroom to a pressure plate on the left nearby to open the door. 
 
Save your game! Proceed ahead for the next boss battle. 
 
==Spell-Catster Montblanc== Level 14 
Ragna’s time to shine here in this gimmick battle. 
 
Montblanc will spin in a big circle along with her Fundead Jamboree zombies. She is only vulnerable at certain times. At the start of the battle, wait directly in the middle of the arena. She has two spells: Magical sound/swooshing noise/”You’re done for!”/”Hi-yaa!”: This spell connects magical lines to her friends. This attack will completely miss you in the centre of the field. If Montblanc meows/”Eat this!”, she will make 3 shockwaves in a row. Jump over these. After 4 failed attacks Montblanc will taunt you with “nya nya nya nya~”. This is when she’s vulnerable to a Ragna smack. Hit her once and she’ll fly up while becoming invulnerable. The zombies will spawn randomly around and will explode after a short time. Jump over the shockwaves. Do this twice and then head back to the middle to repeat the process. 
 
As Montblanc’s HP lowers, the circle spins faster. If you run outside of the circle all the zombies will jump at you and pummel you, so don’t do that. Stay in the middle. You’ll have to predict Montblanc’s movement as the speed increases to smack her, but don’t stare too much at the moving circle as you may experience motion sickness. 
 
Save trying to platinum her for end game. It is possible to 1 hit her later on. Cutscene after the battle. The path to Zahar is now open in the castle entrance upstairs. 
 
Montblanc #1 (After Montblanc cutscene)

Floor 3: Chest 1: Mysterious Treasure (Captain 21 Piece 1,480p) – To the right of the starting stairs. Chest 2: Hamburger Steak. 
 
Save. Head back to Artte to shop/donate/exchange/rank up. G-Colosseum’s vending machine has accessory slots too. You should have enough points to be a Lore Seeker now and get a Grilled Eel as a reward. 
If you’ve been performing really well/went back and platinum ranked some early levels, you’ll even have enough to be a Dungeon Delver now (I was 236, next rank at 240). Dungeon Delver is rewarded with a Designer Purse (Increase Penne drops from enemies). Fiona’s Cup is open to Dungeon Delvers in the G-Colosseum, though you might want to wait until later to do it. She’s capable of one hitting you at this point when her HP is low. If you decide to fight and somehow win, Fiona’s model and the Manly Man Headband are yours. The Manly Man Headband increases your STR as your HP decreases. We’ll touch on this again later if you skip it now, as you probably should. 
 
When ready, warp back to Castle Moonbria: Sanctum – End. This is the last chance to talk to NPCs before they move. Character notes are 139/252. You’ll be locked out of dungeons/G-Colosseum runs for a little while after this, but it’s only temporary. Head up for a cutscene, then fight. 
 
==Vampiric Marquis Zahar== Level 16 
Fight? Ha! Run up and give uncle Zahar a hug. You’re not intended to win this fight. Cue cutscene, cutscene, cutscene. When you regain control, Ragna is now alone.

Hikome image, Hikome #1 (Talk to Hikome once). Hikome #2 (Talk to Hikome three times) 
 
Sunset happens when you leave the General Store. Head up the stairs for a cutscene. Head to the bathhouse and enter for more cutscenes. Lots of cutscenes. You get a save point after, use it. 
 
When we get control of Ragna, everything is on fire and there’s baddies about. Defeat the two yetis in the manor and head outside. There’s another yeti to the right. Head left and go down the stairs for another cutscene. 
 
Alwen joins the party again! Head right of the stairway into the door for the rear path. Descend for a cutscene. Alwen can now use Aurora magic. It fires a beam of light that stays in place that hits multiple times. Head back to Starfall Hamlet and attempt to go to the Bathouse for a scene. Hikome’s shop is open now. You can find him beside Kai in the lower area. With Alwen back you can fast travel again. 
 
Warp to Artte Village. If you didn’t have Dungeon Delver rank before, you’ll likely have it now if you rank up. Might want to consider equipping your new Designer Purse. There’s an achievement for obtaining a cumulative total of 500,000 penne. Annette’s Boutique is open if you need it, Huang’s food exchange as well. When ready, exit and go to Brandy Hill.

Head over to the Witch’s Hut. Talk to Ra-Laira inside for a scene. 
 
Warp to Starry Peak: Mountain – Junction. Take the right path. 
 
==Snowstorm Steppe== Level 18 
Floor 1: Ignore the giant pit beside the exit door for now. You need the Glide Gear upgrade from this dungeon’s end area to cross the pit. 
Floor 2: Chest 1: Accessory Slot 4 – You might see an “Eeeeek!” message pop up. You need to be quick on this one. Equip your Claw Gear and unequip your pet. Run to the bridge and smash the giant rock log sticking to it. Then, run back and go into the windy path. You’re chasing after the Koboltess that is riding in a bucket. You need to catch her with your Claw Gear before she falls into the pit at the end. There’s a safe area to the right just before the pit. Grab her and wait in the safe area. She’ll break free of your grasp and wait there. If you throw her she’ll likely die. Use the nearby jump pad and go right. Kill the enemies in your way to find a switch. Hit it and eventually you’ll be back at the start of the map. Go back through the windy area and meet up with the Koboltess. Be careful not to accidentally kill her as she tries to follow you. Either kill the Yeti or run by it, Koboltess should follow. You need her to reach the gate to open it (Yeti can’t hurt her). Claim your prize! You can equip your pet again. 
Chest 2: Bomb x3 – Go back to the start of the area. In the windy area, go left while avoiding the wind and jump on the stone logs. The chest is at the end. 
Floor 3: Mysterious Treasure (Tyrannosaurus Bones 980p) – Defeat the Great Yeti. Chest 2: Pasta Carbonara – Near level end. 
Bonus! The yetis holding balloons will give you bonus food items if you can pop the balloons before killing the yeti. Try using freezing magic. 
 
After level end, Blue Chest: E-Parts. Take the southern path for a jump pad. Bomb the rock and go down the stairs. You’ll be in the Strange Chamber. Continue for a scene. There’s a special miniboss here that only spawns based on your current time. If the clock reads :00, :15, :30, :45 (in minutes), then you’ll get a CAUTION!! message and Neutrino will spawn. This enemy is immune to magic. It will also flee if you take too long, which is about 1 minute after spawning. Defeat it once for Mysterious Treasure (Amber 500p). This enemy will keep re-spawning when the time matches the requirements, but the Mysterious Treasure is a one time only drop. If you can defeat it quickly and leave the area/re-enter, it is possible to spawn another Neutrino (for end game model farming). 
 
Warp to Artte Village and head over to Artte Airstrip. Go see Gashler in Gashler’s Garage to upgrade your Anchor Gear with Glide Gear! Now you can fly over big pits in Starry Peak. You can also play the snowboarding minigame by talking to Kappa in Starfall Hamlet. 
 
Head back into Snowstorm Steppe. Use Glide Gear to fly over that big pit you ignored earlier to claim a chest containing the Typing Game Widget. Leave the dungeon. 
 
==Starfall Hamlet== 
Snowboarding Minigame
 
Warp to Starfall Hamlet and throw 100p into the well. There’s an achievement for getting all the Arcanums, so you’ll need to beat Course 3. The model is a bonus collectable and is not achievement related. Get it if you want it. 
Kappa #1 (Talk to Kappa once after acquiring Glide Gear) 
 
Choose [I was BORN ready] to play snowboarding. There’s 4 courses. It costs 100p to play every single time, so make sure you have a good amount of penne with you. You need to smash all the pots, don’t take damage and beat the level within the time limit to win. If you fail the same course 5 times, Kappa will offer to make it easier for 400p (500p because you’ll begin the level again). Fail 10 times to make it even easier for another 400p (500p). Fail 15 times to make it super, ultra, mega easy for 900p (1,000p). This applies to all courses. There’s no penalty for making it easier, other than your penne loss. You can re-position yourself by jumping or slowing down. It takes a bit to get used to the controls. 
 
The final course you need to beat the Kappa clones to the finish while breaking all pots and not getting hit. Kappa hits the finish line at about 42.5 – 43 seconds. After making it easy, I nudged in at the finish around 42 seconds, so it was a close one. 
 
Course 1: Bronze Medal – Make it easy!: Miss 4 pots. 
Course 2: Silver Medal – Make it easy!: Miss 5 pots. 
Course 3: Gold Medal, Aurora Magic Arcanum, Kappa #3 – Make it easy!: Miss 4 pots, take 1 damage. Super-easy!: Miss 8 pots, take 2 damage. 
Course 4: Platinum Medal, Rue Model – Make it easy!: Miss 2 pots, take 1 damage. Super Easy!: Miss 5 pots, take 3 damage. Super Ultra Mega Easy!: Miss 10 pots, take 5 damage. 
Win any course for the second time: Kappa #2, Yasaku #3 
 
When ready, warp to Starry Peak, Mountain – Junction and take the left path. 
 
==Sword Shrine Ascent== Level 18 
Floor 1: Chest 1: 5p – At start. Chest 2: Turkey 
There’s an Ichimokuren enemy in the far lower right that drops a hat with blue flowers on it. Use Claw Gear and take it back to the giant mushroom at the start of this floor. The hat this giant mushroom is wearing is actually an Ichimokuren. Kill it and then give the flower hat to the giant mushroom. This will be important later for a chest. Head to floor 2. 
Floor 2: The left path is blocked, but you can talk to the Ichimokuren to open the door for 1,000p for the easy route. Refuse and it’ll spawn a Wheel of Pain. Pay the toll and you can go to Floor 3 quickly, though you’ll be missing things on this floor if you do. 
Chest 1: Mysterious Treasure (Captain 21 Piece – 20,000p bonus because it’s the final piece) Take the right path. Eventually there will be a small hole to go down into. This path leads you to the Clay Guardian, a self-healing chicken. Deal more damage than it can heal for a reward. 
Floor 3: Chest 1: Mysterious Treasure (Buddha Statue – 15,800p) – At the mushroom foot bath sign, go through the gates. A scene occurs when you approach the small mushroom.This happens because you gave the giant mushroom the flower hat on Floor 1. The gate to the chest is now open. If you didn’t do the hat giving, there would be no scene here. 
 
After the dungeon, warp to Artte Village and donate treasure. Then go to the Museum’s 2F. In the top left section, you’ll see Captain 21. Examine it and you’ll get the Robot pet! 
 
When you’re ready to continue, warp to Starry Peak: Mountain – End. NPCs will move again after this. Character notes 185/252. Proceed ahead for a cutscene, then a boss battle. 
 
 

Walkthrough Pt. 8

 
==Stone Gaurdian Galgarion== Level 19 
Galgarion has two phases. 
Phase 1: You need to jump attack with Ragna and hit it in the mouth to open it. Then blast away with Alwen’s magic (non-elemental, fire). Galgarion can punch with it’s right arm. It can slam it’s right arm down and sends out a shockwave on impact. It can summon rocks that fall from above, targeted at you. It can breathe fireballs out in cone, leaving it’s mouth open and vulnerable to magic. It can clap it’s hands together to summon light pillars beneath you. 
 
Phase 2: Near 28,000 HP Galgarion will slam both arms down, sending you flying into the air behind it. Bomb items will periodically be created, as they are required to be used to down Galgarion. Galgarion will turn around and have new attacks. It can summon rocks and rain them down from above. It can breathe large fireballs out. Every step it takes causes shockwaves. It can smash it’s legs down for a massive shockwave. After downing Galgarion with a bomb, jump on it’s back and smash away at the green area. If you jump towards the middle of it’s back as it stands up, you can remain on top and smash away for free DPS time. 
 
Reward: Moon Pillar Sword (It’s a key!). Cutscene into cutscene. Alwen is gone again for the time being, so we’re back to no teleporting/no dungeon runs for a bit. Subaru is also out of commission with injuries. 
 
Elder Tenzan #2, Exmachina #2, Zahar #2 (Cutscenes) 
 
Head into the room beside the one you’re in for a scene with Subaru. Exit the building for a cutscene. 
Rue’s magic lets you warp to plot-related areas for convenience. Rue also strengthens Ragna’s spin attack. We need to talk to Ra-Laira, Pipiro and Fiona to continue. There’s some other stuff to do instead for now.

The Hawk Carving is the start of the trading quest to get Ragna’s Spiral Gear (also an achievement). You won’t be able to finish this quest at this point in time, but you can do about half of it. Here’s the parts you can do: 
 
==TRADE QUEST== 
Give Hawk Statue to Theo (Artte Village, Panda Inn) to get Flashlight. 
Give Flashlight to Helena (Artte Village, Fiona Mansion, left room) to get New Notebook, Helena #3. 
Give New Notebook to Bianz (Roalta Village, Pet Shop) to get Odd Pet Food, Bianz #3. 
Give Odd Pet Food to Huang (Artte Village, Panda Inn) to get Hot Towel. 
Give Hot Towel to Sarasa (Starfall Hamlet, General Store) to get Canned Urchin. 
Give Canned Urchin to Baram (Artte, Panda Inn) to get Foxtail (can’t proceed any further as G-Colosseum access is denied for now) 
 
Note: You can also give the Odd Pet Food to Clark (Artte Village, it’s Lipton’s dog) for 4,000p but you will FAIL this quest. You will also miss out on character notes by failing this quest. So you know, don’t do this option.

Head up the stairs. Cutscene partway up. Cutscene in next area. Odessa joins the party as the ranged attacker. Cutscene further up. Welcome to Luna Mundus, floating above the actual moon. 
 
==Lunar Gallery== Level 20 
There are purple gravity spheres in this dungeon. You can destroy them with Ragna but there’s a gimmick that involves them being intact, called For Rabbits Only. For this challenge, take your pet off, unequip STR gear and equip Claw Gear. You’ll need to waste a bunch of food (20-22 pieces or so – I used Chestnut Jelly as enemies here drop it). Your reward is Analog Clock Widget and Mysterious Treasure (Diamond 500p). 
 
For Rabbits Only requires you to find the Battle Bunny and bring it to three different areas. On Floor 1 at the second gravity sphere, walk off the platform southwest of it and head northwest to the next platform. At the end of this area is Battle Bunny. Battle Bunny will slowly follow you. If you get too close, it will run away/teleport away. You can also grab it and run with it for a short distance (let it break free to minimise the damage it takes). 
 
For the first chest simply murder Battle Bunny for the Analog Clock Widget. Head to Floor 2 to re-spawn Battle Bunny and head back to it’s location. 
 
For the second chest, you need to bring Battle Bunny to the hole behind the door to Floor 2. At the purple air stream, use Claw Gear to grab Battle Bunny and bring it over to the platform. Be careful not to kill Battle Bunny as you deal with the enemies. When you get it to the hole, you’ll hear a noise and Battle Bunny will thank you. Enter the hole to continue. Battle Bunny will be fully healed. Eliminate the enemies and make your way to the For Rabbits Only door far northwest. The enemies at the giant mushroom initiate a scene if you get close, hinting at what to do. Take the left path to reach the Weight Here door. Equip the Travel Scale Widget and eat food on the scale until you’re heavy enough to open it at 99kg. Send Battle Bunny into the hole and follow it. 
 
Take Battle Bunny a short distance northwest to the For Rabbits Only door. Two Golden Bats will attack you, eliminate them. Don’t attack the Forest Kobold or the Sand Mole. When Battle Bunny reaches them, you’ll hear a noise. Claim your chest for Mysterious Treasure (Diamond – 500p). Now you can murder them. 
 
Floor 1: Chest 1: Pineapple – Area to the left shortly after second gravity sphere. 
Floor 2: Mysterious Treasure (Tyrannosaurus Bones 980p) – Behind exit door. 
 
 

Walkthrough Pt. 9

 
Cutscene on level completion. Save. Cutscene up the stairs. Boss fight. 
 
==Dark Alwen== Level 21 
Mash away with Ranga’s Flame Gear for a quick win. If you want to have a little more finesse, use Odessa to strike at a distance while avoiding attacks to pick up a gold/platinum medal with little effort. 
 
Cutscene after the battle. 
Montblanc #2 (Cutscene) 
 
==Path of the Chessmaster== Level 22 
Take your pet off on Floor 2 to see a scene halfway through. You’re going to need to use Claw Gear to net two rewards for carrying things in this dungeon. 
 
Floor 2: Take the second balloon platform ride (sleeping Guardian in front of it). There’s a scene with a fish and frog talking. The eavesdropping mushroom here can be taken to the Execution Site for a reward. Hit the balloon enough to get the platform moving, then Claw Gear the mushroom and hop on. You’ll throw the mushroom a fair distance if you let go, so don’t lose it. You may wish to drop the mushroom off safely after the ride and continue ahead to eliminate all the enemies first. Your goal for the mushroom is the green door/balloon platform ride northwest of the exit level’s green door area. There’s also a Flowerpot far southwest of the 2 green door intersection. It too can be taken to the Execution Grounds. You can only do one per dungeon instance. Reset the dungeon by leaving it completely. See the frog/fish scene again. 
Take the Mushroom: Chest 2: Accessory Slot 5. 
Take the Flowerpot: Chest 3: Wonton Noodles. 
Chest 1: Mysterious Treasure (Ammonite 300p) – Final northwest path after the first balloon ride. 
 
Dyguld #2 (after dungeon clear cutscene) 
 
After the dungeon, save your game. This is the last chance to go see Odessa’s bathhouse scene in Starfall Hamlet. The Bathhouse reopens at 60,000 steps taken on the Pedometer Widget. If your Pedometer is short of 60,000, you can run into a wall with a weight on your left or right keyboard arrows. You’ll get 200 steps per minute by running into a wall. I was short by about 12,000 steps at this point, so I just let Ragna run into a wall for an hour while I did other things. You can also replay Lunar Gallery or Path of the Chessmaster if you want to grab some more food from enemies. 
 
When you have 60,000+ steps taken, warp to Starfall Hamlet and enter the Bathhouse. Use Ragna to enter the bath. It seems to be random if Odessa joins. In my testing I’ve had her join on attempt 1, 4, 8, 14. 17, 23, 33. Just keep entering with Ragna until it happens. 
 
With that done, warp back to Luna Mundus: Junction – 2, save and proceed up the stairs for the boss fight. Character notes 207/252. Might want to hold off on exchanging food, as healing items will be valuable soon with tougher enemies. 
 
==Warfiend Dyguld== Level 22 
 
Odessa unleashes her full power as a werewolf. This is the only time you get to play her like this, so feel free to try it out. Ragna’s Flame Gear will do more damage though. You can burst Dyguld down in 20-25 seconds by mindlessly mashing with Ragna. 
 
Cutscene. 
Dyguld #3 (Cutscene) 
 
Odessa passes out and Ragna is left to proceed solo. Head back down the stairs and save if you wish. Proceed up the stairs when ready for another dungeon. 
 
==Sealed Gardens== Level 24 
Floor 1: Chest 1: Mysterious Treasure (Black Pearl 29,800p) – Hit the switch near the exit level door to open the door to the chest. 
Floor 2: Chest 1: King Trumpet – Send the right yellow moon ball rolling and follow it. 
Chest 2: Hero’s Gloves – Send the middle yellow moon ball rolling. Kill the Moonbreed enemy for a chest. 
 
After dungeon end, save. Equip all the STR accessories you can for a quicker fight. If you’re ready, head up the stairs for a cutscene, then boss fight. 
 
==Dark Trueblood Zahar== Level 25 
If you’re quick, you can run up to Zahar and smack him with Ragna for a free cheap shot before he can react. You can only hit Zahar once each time. After being hit, he’ll make small yellow bats near where he was standing, so avoid them. Then he’ll summon magical orbs that explode. When Zahar reappears, he’ll start throwing out big waves of energy. Dodge around them and smack him again. Repeat a few times till he’s down. 
 
Cutscene. Boss fight. 
 
==Vampiric Marquis Zahar== Level 25 
Alwen is back in the party. Swap accessories for STR/MAG or DEF now. You’re going to need to swap between Alwen and Ragna to deal damage. Zahar becomes immune to one type after a few hits. The purple shield means he’s immune. it dings and shows 0. 
There’s a gravity sphere floating around to let you jump really high. 
When Zahar is really low HP (25,000), he flips the screen upside down and reverses your movement. 
Cutscene after winning. Alwen obtains Everdark magic. Cutscene, video, cutscene, cutscene, cutscene. When you regain control, you’re in Artte Village. Go save your game. Time to Nosey Neighbor/trade quest/Getting Steamy in Here…

Take F-Parts to Gashler at Brandy Hill. Upgrade complete! Spiral Gear is the ultimate weapon for Ragna. You also got an achievement for that. 
 
 

Walkthrough Pt. 10/G-Colosseum/A Winner is You!

 
If you didn’t rank up during Luna Mundus, you’ll have enough to be Master Hunter (300) now easily. The Triumphant Towel reward is your key for platinum medals. If you have full HP, Alwen won’t use any of her magic bar to cast spells so you can spam to your heart’s content. 
 
Head over to Brandy Hill and talk to Miriam. Tell her [I was born ready]. Cutscene, cutscene, movie, scene. 
 
==Brandy Hill== 
Subaru scene (Talk to Subaru at top of hill). Gashler moved back to Gashler’s Garage at Artte Airstrip if you need his shop. 
 
Warp back to Melzedek. 
==S.F Melzedek: Hall of the Transgressor== Level 26 
Floor 2: Chest 1: Shortcake. Chest 2: Battle Armor – After Tyrant enemy. Chest 3: Mysterious Treasure (Tyrannosaurus Bones 980p) – After killing Tyrant, door opens. Kill 3 Tyrants to open another door for a chest. 
Floor 3: Chest 1: Mysterious Treasure (Pink Diamond 500p) – Take 4 portals, go up and take portal. Kill 2 enemies, then kill 3 enemies in the big room. Hit a switch in eastern corner. Go back and take 2 portals. Take first portal around the western bend. Take top portal for the chest. 
 
After dungeon, save. Head up for a boss fight. Cutscene first. 
 
==Crusader Thermidor== Level 26 
Thermidor is back with some fancy crusader armor and new attacks. He’ll spend a lot of time flying around, so counter that with Alwen’s fireballs. 
 
Win for a cutscene and Thermidor #3. Head back and save and then come back up and continue on. 
 
==Spiral Nexus== Level 28 
Floor 1: Chest 1: Azuki Soup – near exit door. Chest 2: Mysterious Treasure (Dugong 300p) – in room with lever switch, turn it on (blue) and off (red) again for a portal. This leads to the chest. Later turn the lever switch on (blue) to lead to exit. 
Floor 2: Chest 1: Hermit’s Scarf – not far from exit door, hug the wall near the purple gravity pulsar to sneak by for a chest. 
Floor 3: Hit the switch and jump/move towards disabled gravity pulsar. Once you pass by it, run (don’t jump). if you jump you’ll get sucked back to it. The timing to get by this part is fairly strict. Too slow and it’ll turn on, sucking you in. 
 
~~~!!!WARNING!!!~~~ 
Point of No Return 
 
Save after level end. This is it, the Point of No Return. You will face the final boss after this point, and there will be no more dungeon runs or anything else open to you after this point. To finish [Nosey Neighbor], you will need to beat the final boss. There’s an epilogue portion where you can walk around and talk to people to pick up the missing 18 character notes (You should be missing 19, and there’s a reason for that). The 19th note is one you can still pick up, and it’s from the G-Colosseum after beating or losing to Gallandeau’s ultimate fighter. 
 
Here’s what there’s still left to do for achievement cleanup. 
Four Illusory Labyrinths. 
G-Colosseum battles. 
Collections: Level all 6 pets to 9. Find all accessories. Get all widgets. Own all armors. Discover all food once. Earn 500,000 penne total. 
 
==G-Colosseum== 
Level Plate G
 
If you can beat Gallandeau in the G-Coliseum, he’ll give you the Level Plate G. It replaces the level on dungeons if you examine the level plate with a higher level of difficulty. Enemies drop T3 foods every single time, model drop rates are increased and penne drops are greatly increased. Some dungeons have a treasure listed in brackets. Level Plate G is required to obtain that treasure. While not needed to platinum rank dungeons, it’s a good 2-for-1 deal to use it to get food/money while you’re running the easier, early dungeons at least. If you beat Gallandeau, you’ll be asked if you want to face the ultimate brawler. Make sure you’ve got a good supply of food (You could use dozens to hundreds depending on type). This next opponent hits HARD. Behold the ultimate fighter: Service Penguin! 
 
==G-Colosseum: Gallandeau== 
Gallandeau: Can use Flying G Attack to bodyslam into you. He can charge you in an attempt to grab you. He can flex his muscles to block attacks. 
At around ??? HP his attacks intensify. His Flying G Attack can bounce multiple times. He can make a large tornado on himself. 
 
==G-Colosseum: Service Penguin== 
From 300,000 to 200,000 HP: She reflects spells. She mostly walks around slowly. Dark magic is particularly effective. Fire magic will kill you instead. 
From 200,000 to 100,000 HP: She walks around the edge of the arena, also not doing much. Spell reflection is still in play. 
100,00. to 60,000 HP: Now the fight begins! She can summon clones of herself. She can charge you to grab you for the ultimate penguin buster (dealing massive damage – eat quickly during strikes to survive). If she falls down and says “I’m to hungry to move” and you attack her, she’ll counter with an unavoidable ultimate penguin buster. 
Below 60,000 HP: She can summon short range lasers around herself. She also gains a charging kick that deals massive damage. 
 
Reward: Achievement: A Winner Is You!, Service Penguin #2, Crown, Service Penguin Model. If you didn’t beat any prior Cups, beat them now as well. New Game+ players also unlock Survival Mode. Survival Mode faces all the Cup battles in a row. Ragna fights males, Alwen fights females. Bring lots of food! The boss hp is severely buffed (Maurice starts off with 250k~). 
 
 

Walkthrough Pt. 11/Illusory Labyrinths

 
==How Illusory Labyrinths Work== 
There’s 20 floors and 2 bosses. You get a save point before both bosses after Floor 10 and Floor 20. If you leave, progress is reset. If the exit door is locked, there’s 1 switch somewhere to hit. There’s usually 2-3 chests per floor. Enemies don’t drop food but they can drop models. The chests here can drop all of the tier 3 and tier 4 food items. The dungeon may say level 99 but enemies are around the level 30 range. 
NG+ players have a second labyrinth that infinitely loops, increasing the boss count by 1 every loop. 
 
==Illusory Labyrinth: Earth== Level 99 
Boss 1: Hydra. It spits fireballs and moves slowly. It can strafe to match your movement while attacking. Abuse Alwen’s magic as you keep distance and spin in a big circle around the room. 
Boss 2: Nightlord. Can teleport. Can throw out several flaming swords on the ground. It can shoot out two volleys of arrows in a full circle around it. It can shoot out a flaming laser a medium distance. It can spin with a laser a medium distance from it. 
Reward: Dark Impulse Arcanum. You’ll likely have found all the food types now and reached level 30. All foods nets you [Hungry Hungry Hit Points] achievement. 
 
You can go do the other three illusory labyrinths now as well to get the final pet for [Heavy Petting] achievement, and the final armors for Ragna and Alwen (required for achievements [Fundergarments] and [Wondergarments]). You may still be missing an armor and accessory from Marin’s shop (Cleria Robe and Accelering). 
 
==Ordium Shrine: Shrine – Entrance: Illusory Labyrinth: Water== Level 99 
Floor 10 boss: Kraken. – Single tentacle swipe. Jump and slam. Spit ink ball. Charge at player. 
Floor 20 boss: Beelzebub: Can fly. Spits out several spark balls. Throws 1-2 wind blades. If on ground, can explode for a shockwave. 
Reward: Kobold Pet 
 
==Gloomgeld Woods: Woods – Entrance: Illusory Labyrinth: Wind== Level 99 
Floor 10 boss: 2 Shroomba and Asuroom: Shroombas: Can drop bombs. Charges at player. 
Asuroom: Flings out many small orbs in a circle and continually follows player. 
Floor 20 boss: Leviathan: Smacks tail for shockwave. Jumps and spits several water bubbles. Lunges twice with second lunge making a large water pillar. 
Reward: Weasel Suit 
 
==Aurone Forgetower: Tower – Entrance: Illusory Labyrinth: Fire== Level 99 
Floor 10 boss: Phoenix: Rains explosive pellets. Charges player. Sprays flames in several directions. 
Floor 20 boss: Sentinel: Swings arm. Charges in a semi circle. Charges forward leaving bombs behind. Jumps and makes a shockwave circle. 
Reward: Checkered Skirt 
 
<achievement for beating all 4 illusory labyrinths> 
Missing accessories of Giver’s Beard, Masquerade Mask and Trapper’s Crest are from Hunter Rank rewards. 
 
Next step is getting platinum ranks on levels/bosses that you didn’t get platinum on yet. Replay boss battles in G-Colosseum (left path room). Replay dungeons are their appropriate warp locations. New Game players want to reach 434 points before going through the Point Of No Return. You can feasibly get a gold (9 points – no food used) and bronze (7 – just win) points to reach 450. You will be automatically rank up after the cutscenes for the achievement [High Flier]. 
 
New Game+ players don’t need to do the Point Of No Return. There’s 2 additional boss battle machines in the G-Colosseum from the NG+ reward. There’s also more bonus content to be played, though not achievement related. 
 
 

Walkthrough Pt. 12/Final Boss

 
Warp to Melzedek junction and proceed ahead for the final showdown. You might want to have a healthy amount of food in stock. For New Game players, you’ll want your Hunter Points to be at least 434 at this point to pick up [High Flier]. At 434 I’m assuming you’ll acquire a Gold medal and Bronze Medal. Cutscene, then fight. 
 
==S.F Melzedek: Melzedek Core== Level 29 
The core is immune to magic, so equip STR accessories and Ranga’s Spiral Gear. This fight is relatively easy and you should be able to snag a Gold medal by not using food and beating it in the time limit. You might even Platinum it. The core makes pillars appear, jump on them to jump at the core and air attack it. Sometimes the pillar is close enough to smash away with Ragna. 
 
Cutscene after battle, then boss fight. Now the real battle begins. 
 
==Lucian the Gilded== Level 29 
There’s a lot of visuals and projectiles in this fight. This is where having a bunch of food will come in handy as you learn the attacks. 
 
Phase 1: In the first phase the goal is to dodge Lucian’s tail attack and smash it in order to bring her within Alwen’s range. 
Phase 2: At around ??? HP, Lucian will switch tactics. 
 
Cutscene, movie, cutscene, synopsis, cutscene. When you regain control, Mia is following Ragna now. You’ll have been automatically promoted and received a penne reward based on your rank. The “food set” is a NG+ item, you’ll start with 1 of every food of that tier. The final thing to do is pick up the remaining 18 [Nosey Neighbor] character notes. The runway on Artte Airstrip starts the final cutscenes/credits/NG+ clear save file, so don’t go there until you’ve obtained [Nosey Neighbor].

Minimalist Walkthrough

 
Just want to get through the game as quickly as possible so you can get to NG+ to fully experience everything? Here you go. Kill enemies for food. Get 10 of one food to convert into 1 better EXP food at the Panda Inn – Huang/Mei. Food is also healing items, so balance your exchanging as needed. Buy the dog pet at Roalta Village, Pet Shop once you get 2,500p. Dog autoloots drops and digs up 30hp items randomly at level 9. Artte Village: Annette’s Boutique has some armor/accessories. Buy when you have spare penne for an early game boost.

Nosiest Neighbor: Chronological Order List

 
Nosiest Neighbor requires you to find all 252 of the character notes in the game. Character notes are pieces of information about characters that are obtained by talking to NPCs at various points in the game. This achievement is highly miss-able, but progress does carry over to New Game+. 
 
There’s 63 slots in the character notes menu. The character image counts as one note, and each image has 3 information pieces about it. Any time you discover a note, you will see a message in the bottom right of your screen telling you what character you found information for. Sometimes you may receive multiple notes at the same time, but the game will only mention one of them. Some cutscenes may give you notes without mentioning. Character images are given when you first talk to that character. Information pieces can be given by talking to characters up to three times usually. At certain plot-related stages in the game, characters will move around and have new dialogues. The Chronological Order lists what portion in the game you can acquire each note, as a sort of condensed walkthrough summary.

Spiral Gear Trade Quest/Heavy Petting/Getting Steamy in Here

If you begin the trade sequence after Zahar, some NPCs have slightly different locations. 
 
Theo will be in Artte Village, near the centre stage. 
Helena is in the right room of Fiona’s Mansion. 
Huang still in Panda Inn but gives a bonus Turkey because Alwen complains that she’s hungry. 
Sarasa is in Starfall Hamlet’s Bathhouse. 
Baram is in Roalta Village by the Windmill. 
All the others are still same positions. 
 
Note: You can also give the Odd Pet Food to Clark (Artte Village, equip Solomon’s Ring. it’s Lipton’s dog) for 4,000p but you will FAIL this quest and miss the achievement. You will also miss out on character notes by failing this quest. So you know, don’t do this option.

It takes 83 Pet Food to go from level 1 to level 9. Pet levels are carried over to New Game+, but the pets themselves are not. Pets gain EXP by picking up penne drops. Pets learn a new ability at level 3 and 6. They change form at level 9. Kobold is the exception. It gains two skills at level 9, transforming into a Bold Ko. 
 
Getting Steamy in Here

Alwen can be done after Luna Mundus completion. 
 
In order to open the hot springs up for Odessa/Alwen, your Pedometer widget needs 60,000 steps+ on it. Then enter the hot springs as Ragna. Odessa/Alwen will randomly join Ragna. I’ve had them join first try, after 3-6 tries and once it took 20 tries. Just keep entering as Ragna until it happens. 
Previous miss-able scenes are NOT required to get this achievement.

Mysterious Treasures

 
There’s 48 in total. Finding all 48 gives you 100,000 penne, 3 of each T4 food and 5 Panacea-x. You also get a bonus food set for New Game+ based on how many treasures you had when you finished the game. A food set contains 1 of each food in that tier. Completing a group section of treasures (Apatosaurus skeleton for example) gives a large penne bonus (10,000 bonus instead of 980 for one bone piece). The Robot pet can be obtained by completing Captain 21’s museum set, then interacting with it. 
 
0-? – T1 Food Set 
?-? – T2 Food Set 
?-? – T3 Food Set 
4. – T4 Food Set 
 
Some treasures can only be found by using the Level Plate G. You will need to do a run using the Level Plate G to get the new mysterious treasure, as well as a run without the Level Plate G to get the original treasure. You can do it in any order. If a dungeon has a treasure listed in brackets, then you need to use the Level Plate G to get it. 
 
Some chests that contain set parts are randomly picked. A location containing Apatosaurus Hind Leg Bones might have Apatosaurus Chest Bones in another playthrough. You’ll end up getting the entire set of everything eventually, and each particular piece of a set is worth the same. Doesn’t really make much sense for them to be randomized, but it is what it is. 
 
Random sets, 4 pieces per: 
Skeletons: Apatosaurus, Tyrannosaurus, Stegosaurus, Triceratops. Contains: Chest, Hind Legs, Head, Forelegs.
