A Life of Moderation

A Life of Struggle

No Ordinary Customer
Shop Level will increase when you buy, sell, or fuse equipment at shops. This is proof that you’ve fist-bumped the invisible hand of capitalism enough to achieve maximum Shop Level. Secret menus unleashed!
This is proof that you’ve collected all 36 anomalous orbs. You’ve poked around in every nook and cranny, you’ve laughed, you’ve cried, you’ve questioned your assumptions… But you made it!

This is proof that you’ve picked more than 100 herbs. Don’t hesitate to use them when your initial SC gets low and you’re stranded far from town.
This is proof that you’ve stayed at inns for a total of 10 nights. Resting at inns can give you extra skill effects in battle thanks to mysterious ingredients in the meals you’re served. You can also engage in chitchat with your companions and restore your initial SC to 100. Such hospitality!
Show of Talent
This is proof that you’ve honed a certain Support Talent enough to be able to teach it to others at the inn. Those who can, do. Those who can even better, teach!
This is proof that you’ve found all the stone monoliths and ruminated on their author. Use the battle actions you’ve acquired to unleash the ultimate mystic artes!

Boss of the G-Union

Elle Mental Marta
This is proof that you’ve equipped items that activate an Elemental Union bonus skill. Basic skills all correspond to one of five different elements.

Stacking the Deck
This is proof that you’ve equipped items that activate a Stack bonus skill. You can get Stack bonuses by equipping more than one copy of the same skill at once. The more copies of that skill you equip, the cooler your Stack bonus will be!

This is proof that you’ve achieved the Stack 16 bonus skill, the highest echelon of Stack bonuses. Whether this is the end or just the beginning is up to you.
The Blessing Bell
This is proof that you’ve sanctified at least one piece of equipment. A super deal that doubles the effect of the skill in the first slot! Of course, if you’re particularly devout, you can also offer this item to the Lord of the Land and secure a more blessed future for our children.
A Double Take
This is proof that you’ve acquired equipment with a doubled skill from an enemy drop. Very difficult unless you’re playing in Hard difficulty or higher! There’s a rumor that offering sanctified equipment to a Lord of the Land may increase the chances…

This is proof that you’ve mastered at least one of the Support Talents. Slow and steady. You can do it. We believe in you.

I Am the Wind
This is (WHOOSH) proof that you’ve attained (NEEEAAAROOOOMMM) maximum speed with the (BEEEOOOWWWWWWWW) Windstepping talent.

The Item Collector
This is proof that you’ve collected a great many items, most of which are equipment. The core concept of equipment is the combination of stat boosts and embedded skills. Items you initially dismissed might in fact hold the key to defeating the most formidable foes.
Cruisin’ for a Bruisin’
This is proof that you’ve battled a wide swath of enemies. By the way, the more of the same enemy you defeat, the more likely that enemy becomes to drop equipment with skills attached. Time for some population control!
This is proof that you’ve become quite familiar with the Library. How to obtain this is kind of a secret, but if you take the time to do a bit of reading now and then, you should be pleasantly surprised.
Eight Dates With Hate
This is proof that you’ve returned alive from challenging all eight Malevolent Crucibles. Since each one only allows certain characters to enter, you’ll need mastery of techniques and knowledge for each one of them.
