Ys Celceta Log #18 (End Game)

If you’re wondering where the rest of logs based on Iris went to, I wrote up separate walkthroughs for the Bronze (青銅の間) and Gold Spaces (黄金の間). This log starts at the point after all three Spaces are finished until the end of the game.

  • Into the Nucleus (中枢区画) we go~! It’s a pretty area.
    .
  • !? There’s a gold chest right behind the landing area. ^^ It’s for a Berserk Armor +6 (ベルセルクアーマー).
    .
  • There’s a large lv 55 enemy that can do some major damage if you’re not careful. 😦
    .
  • Uh, just a warning: Iris is a one-time deal. If you don’t get all the treasures now — like BEFORE this upcoming boss fight — you will NOT be able to return to it. You’re also prevented from teleporting anywhere and the game guides you all the way to the finale (meaning there’s no chance to make any pit stops along the way). So if you need to do anything, leave Iris after touching the waystone and do it. This is the point of no return!
    .
  • Wow. I suck so much at this boss fight. ^.^;; If you’re horrible at Flash Guarding and Flash Moving like me, equip the Beast King Claw (獣王の篭手) for an easier time dodging the pillars.  When the boss is low enough that you can attack, if you hardly guarded in your entire playthrough up to this point, change that habit now and defend when it’s about to shoot the beam because it really reduces damage. ^^ (Not sure if it makes a massive difference on harder difficulties though.) Oh, and make sure you have all 3 different weapon type in your fight.
    .
  • Oh geez, Lord of the Rings thing going on here. < spoiler >When the party returns from Iris (and after some conversation about the consequences of Gruhda’s actions ^^), Eldeel instructs Adol to go to the volcano at Mt. Vesvio to destroy the Mask of the Sun by throwing it into lava. I suppose it’s something like “as long as the Mask exists, crap like this could happen again”. Or maybe it’s to “stabilize” the Book of Life? Woo. Illiteracy! XD< /spoiler >
    .
  • I really don’t get why the game lets you be an asshole and not have any consequences. I suppose they give you the option so you can see the reactions of others. I mean, when Eldeel specifically makes the request for Adol to see it through, the answers you can select are “I’ll try” (やってみる) or “Why me?” (なぜ自分に?).
    .
  • Aw man! The game starts to dwindle down your party members. :/ < spoiler >It’s the whole cliched bit where members will start staying back to hold off enemies in various areas while they tell Adol to go on ahead. You will end up with just Dulen and Frida for the remainder of the run.< /spoiler >
    .
  • During the way up the volcano of Mt. Vesvio (ヴェスヴィオ山), you’ll need to equip the Beast King Claw (獣王の篭手). Watch out for the fire coming out of the cracks. The shadows here, which are constantly harassing you for the Mask of the Sun, also inflict status ailments. >_<
    .
  • Final boss fight. Um … I hope you gave Adol some tender loving care throughout the game because < spoiler >the battle is classic Ys in that it’s a duel against the boss.< /spoiler >
    .
  • Ah! One memory left! D: (Also, I’m at 99.5% on treasures. WTF?) < spoiler >You gain the memory during the end sequences.< /spoiler >
    .
  • I find it hilarious how the game allows you to choose whether or not you want to complete the final task. It’s not like you can do anything else otherwise. 😛
    .
  • How strange. In the illustration with the book and pieces of turn paper, the text is written in runes. The image compression quality on the Vita’s kind of crap so it’s not as noticeable, I guess. ._.
    .
  • Damnation, I just realized that I’ve been spelling Dulen as Duren all this time. XD Oh well. ^^ And dammit, Falcom, make up your mind on how you spell  レファンス. (Re: The credits show it as Lefance but the website has Refance.) And I’ve been spelling his name wrong too. Good grief. I suppose I’ll go back a few logs and change things. ^^ There. Changed all Refrance to Lefance. ^^; Not sure how I ended up adding the extra R. Dulen’s gonna take longer to correct due to the number of times I mention him. :/
    .
  • Oops. I hit the Start button and it skipped the rest of the credits. ^^ I’ll sit through it again later. I’m sure it has a nice drawing or something at the end.
    .
  • Now that I sat through it, I didn’t react as fast as I could to some images. XD Like, I was waiting for the image of Eldeel and roos to pan all the way up but it started showing a close up of his face instead. >_> I got it with a staff credit too cuz that was the last moment before the fade out. 9__9 The profile pic is a nice drawing though!
    .
  • There was an image of Adol looking up before this but I didn’t know how long it’d stay so I didn’t snap it right away. I got this instead.
    .
  • Anyway, the carry-over clear data is pretty sweet. You get to  keep your character levels, all items, materials, armour, and weapons! Memories and monster list are also intact. The only things that I can see that reset are key items and treasures.
    .
  • Loaded up the save right before the last Iris boss and … Ahahaha. The G. Pikkard got stuck at the northern chest in the 木濡れ日の遺跡 in the Forest of Dawn and couldn’t move. Killed it right there. ^^ Got my trophy. ❤ The thing gives you crazy amount of gold. Might be a good idea to have the Gold Axe (金の斧) on the three party members so you can reap the extra money that the accessory provides regardless of who kills it. XD

    Ys Celceta - Gold Hamster Trophy Get!
    Yay~!
  • Oh, an awesome tactic that works mentioned by AweOfShe over at the XSEED forums: Go up next to the G.Pikkard in roo form then immediately unleash an EX Skill right after you take off the Sacred Beast Bangle. XD This worked well for me with a level 49 Frida. Granted, I had her with the strongest weapon that could be purchased from a shop (the Rune Grave(?) (ルーングレイブ) plus the Power Ring IV equipped (パワーリングⅣ). You know, I think you’ll know if the G.Pikkard is in the vicinity if you hear a squeak when you enter a zone.
    .
  • Wow. Jumpy creature at the north side of the eastern region of the Forest of Dawn is still pretty brutal.
    .
  • Now I’m trying to find the missing treasure chest. :/ Japanese players are reporting that there are bugs in the game that kind of mess with the percentage. I wonder if I’m a victim of that. .__.~ Actually, there being bugs would be a reason the Jade Cave chest didn’t show up until I was right next to it. >_> Oh yeah, I just ran to the Inn of the Frogs and speaking to the frogs in Roo form got me some items. :0
    .
  • No, it turns out I was just missing a chest in the Tower of Divine Guidance because I never failed the run across those orange platforms that drop. I added the info to the end of log #8.
    .
  • Now to see if I have any saves close to the one with the Selray quest that has the little girl create flower rings for the party (or was it the older girl that does it?). If I use that save and get all the flower rings + create all accessories after that, I will have the all items trophy! Nyuk nyuk~! I’m probably gonna have to end up playing through the laboratory dungeon for this … Oh wow! I have a save right before the quest has started! The party is literally standing right next to Liluche (リルチェ). ^^ Lucky me. ^^~~~
    .
    Ah! As it turns out, if you have a quantity of 3 of all 4 types of flowers, you will get the option to hand over all of them. 😀 So once I do this, I just have to redo the Danan quest with the Magatama and buy all the other accessories I’m missing and then I get the Item Collector (アイテムコレクター) trophy! Or not. I think I need to get all weapons and armor too. >_> Boy, this is a rather huge undertaking since I have to play until the end of the game again so I can carry stuff over. If weapons are included, there’s no way for this trophy to be completed since I won’t have 3 of the ultimate weapons or any the weapons I didn’t ask Shiryu to create for that matter. Ugh. >:E
    .
  • I got the マテリアルコレクター and さすらいの富豪 trophies just now for collecting all materials and having over 1,000,000 gold respectively. Thanks to AweOfShe over at the XSEED forums for giving me the idea of just selling off everything to get the trophies. XD
    .
  • Random image. Unsure when this scene becomes available. ^^ I just ran back here to take a snapshot of Michey to add to an earlier log.

  1. i have a glitch on Frida’s skill, where one of her skill “憐月断” is missing, do you have any solution to it?

    1. Hmmm. I didn’t encounter this in my playthrough and I did a quick check on some of the JP wikis and none of them mention this. I didn’t check the message forums though. Have you updated the game to latest version/patch? (I wonder if that’s what’s causing it because I didn’t even notice an update until after I Platinumed the game. Haven’t checked if Falcom released another one since.)
