Hints & Secrets

Unlimited Leaves

In order to properly take advantage of this, you must first have Cyrus and his support skill "Evasive Maneuvers" as well as Tressa with her starting ability to gather Leaves after leaving an area/zone.

Head over to North Rippletide Coast situated southeast of Atlasdam city and northwest of Rippletide city. On the far right end side of the zone is a dungeon/cave called Undertow Cove which is a level 45 dungeon. Upon entering, there is a small loop/roundabout that you can walk just south of the entrance that brings you back to the entrance and out before being engaged with a random encounter. With Tressa's ability to snag Leaves after she exits the dungeon, you should net between 1,140-1,368 Leaves. Each run takes approximately 10-12 seconds walking or 7-8 seconds running. This nets approx. 6,840 Leaves every 10 sec. and if you're patient, up to approx. 410,000 Leaves an hour (Or for however long you plan to earn).

Glitches

Home Buffer Glitch

The Home Buffer Glitch allows the player to bypass trigger areas that usually make the player walk back. This is usually sign posts the character walks into and says "I shouldn't be here right now" and turns back or in dungeons when a boss prompt pops up: "The sense of danger is overwhelming. Are you sure you wish to proceed?"

In the bottom case, hover over "Perhaps not." Then tap it and immediately tap the Switch's Home button. When you're in the Home screen, hold the analog stick in the direction toward the boss trigger and reenter the game (so if you were moving Up going into the question, hold Up when reentering the game). When you reenter the game while holding the direction, immediately tap the Home button again. Hold the direction again and reenter the game.

It may take a few tries, but if done properly, the character will walk a few steps past the boss trigger zone, allowing the player to loot boss chests without fighting them.

Similarly, this can be done at sign posts right before the player starts to walk back. The area beyond such zones is not usually loaded though, so it cannot be used to skip chapters. However, there is one dungeon, the Lorn Cathedral, that can be accessed in this manner.

This glitch can also be done in the PC version but requires messing with the graphics settings.

You must first complete these two quests: "Daughter of the Dark God" by going to Ravis Manor where you start it by challenging a guard to a duel, then there's "In Search of the Father" which is started by talking to Kid outside of city where YOU started your game at. Next go to the west Swarky Trail and talk to Emperor Swaria to unlock the Ruins of Hornburg. Finish it to get the secret ending, good luck!

At Journey's End (Spoilers)

Please note that there'll be spoilers that may want to avoid. This little guide will help those who have difficulties on achieving this content. Read this at your own criteria. After beating all Chapter 4 bosses, there's one more task you can perform to reach endgame content, and it's the final sidequest known as "At Journey's End". Some need to be completed first, however (you can check them below). As soon as you have finished "Alphas and Impresario's Request" a fast travel spot on the map will appear (near Everhold), allowing you the access to Ruins of Hornburg and its final dungeon, Gate of Finis. Before stepping in, note that it's important to level up your unused characters too since for the first time you'll be using both parties for the final stage. A well set strategy is recommended as well.

Unlockable:How to Unlock:
(1) "Kit, The Traveler"Give him a Healing Grape after beating 1st Chapter on any character (you'll find him outside your starting area)
(2) "In Search of Father (I)"Guide/Allure "Aspiring Actor" (a NPC which can be found at the east side of Noblecourt) to Kit, who is in Noblecourt too
(3) "Daughter of Dark God (I)"Duel/Provoke Alphas, a guard that can be found in the outside of Ravus Manor in Bolderfall
(4) "Daughter of Dark God (II)"Alphas will follow Lyblac to Saintsbridge. Scrutinize/Inquire to get his poem, and bring it to Flora, who is at the cathedral entrance
(5) "In Search of Father (II)"Kit is located in Moonstruck Coast. Give him the Lapis Lazuli, which can be Purchased/Stolen from a merchant on Grandport
(6) "Alphas and the Impresario"As soon as all previous sidequests are completed, fast travel to S'waarki, head to the west and you will find Impresario and Alpha. Beat the miniboss
