Re: The Ni No Kuni Progress Thread

Feb 3, 2013
I don't have any stats right now, but I'll at least get y'all a bit of a progress update. I finished up at Al Mamoon last night, including Old Smokey. I've completed all of the bounties except for one that may not be available to me yet (where are the Summerlands?). I also believe I've completed most of the errands so far as well (I unlocked the trophy for doing 15 of them, at least).

Currently, I'm about to fight the Genie in the cauldron. Unfortunately I lost the first time around because I wasn't expecting a boss battle, and Esther was woefully low on health. I about had him, but I couldn't block his big explosion attack in time because using a provision takes FOREVER.

And tross, you MUST check out more Studio Ghibli films. My personal favorites are Princess Mononoke and Kiki's Delivery Service.

What would you guys rate the difficulty for getting the plat and what are some hard/tedious trohies worth mentioning?


id give it a 7/10. for the most part its easy, but there are 2 trophies that are difficult and time consuming. the one where you have to catch/evolve all 250 species and the one for getting all the merrit rewards from Swift Solutions.

the catch/evolve all 250 species is self explanitory, but the merrit reward one is just hell, im currently trying to do it. you think it would be easy; do errands, get stamps, fill up cards and trade in. however to get all the rewards you have to do all the errands that offer stamps, and upon completing the game a new errand unlocks that has to do with making things with alchemy. and in order to make those things you need some super rare items that are only dropped by 3 different creatures. ive been famring these creatures for probably 7 hours over the course of 2 days and havent even gotten 1 of the items yet... and i need 5... :smileyindifferent:

 

and for no reason heres my parties stats:

Oliver- 99max

Demoliceros- 28max

Tundragorer- 4

Tokotoko- 3

Esther- 99max

Fluorongo- 99max

Sinister Sovereign- 68max(not sure the exact number but i know its at max)

Greater Naiad- 99max

Swaine- 87

Hurlcules- 99max

Puss in Boats- 99max

Papa Sasquash- 94

I would like to point out that there are actually over 400 creatures and you only need to have tamed 250 out of the 400 and some. Evolution does count as a tame, so each creature you catch can count as 3. The errands and bounties are not to difficult either, I just finished the game myself, but I think the most part is just time consuming, there are some catch errands, sometimes the creature has a low catch rate, and can take awhile, I think the hardest/most time consuming one would be alchemy, some ingredients are very hard to get as they have a low drop rate. I heard it took some people over 8 hours just to get 1 ingredient.

Finished the main story. On post clear content now. Trying to figure out what spells I'm missing and why I can't access some of them such as Quake or Nix.

You can`t use them, some spells, like Quake, Nix, ashes of resurrection cannot be used, they are only added to the wizards companion. Only real purpose is if you wanted a completed wizards companion. As for what spells you are missing, don`t forget to complete all of horrances riddles, there is also more in post game. you should get them all that way.
