Trophy 11: When You Ride Alone

Official Description: Ride Ambrosia for the first time.
Type: Bronze
Earned on: July 7th, 2023
Overall Earned: #2058

After rescuing Martha the side quest to get a Chocobo unlocks (Clive’s mom is an evil bitch sending her solders to cull the Bearers of her former kingdom). Some jerk bandits were hunting Chocobos and Clive is sent to stop them. Turns out the white Chocobo leader of the flock was his old pal Ambrosia who lost an eye rescuing young him in the intro. Aw! Happy reunions.

Ambrosia can be summoned pretty much anywhere open which definitely helps cut down travel time (lots of backtracking in this one, eh).

Trophy 12: Legacy

Official Description: Turn the corner.

On to smash Mothercrystal 2 which also includes confronting Jill’s past drama! The brutal Iron Kingdom (ruled by religious zealots who hate Bearers even more than everyone else) kidnapped Jill after the fall of Phoneix Gate and used her like a slave for her Shiva powers. They are in control of the Mothercrystal on a volcanic island they captured from Rosaria.

Jill gets to stab the head asshole after a cool boss fight with a living flame thingy, and of course big crystal go smashy.

Clive has been using the name Cid to honour his late friend, and Hugo Kupka/Titan is still NOT happy with any Cid over the murder of his spicy love interest. Kupka crashes Clive’s old kingdom and almost executes Jill (go go, magic Torgal). Yikes.

Clive and Kupka have a semi-primed showdown in the old throne room where Mr. Kupka gets his hands chopped off. Wow. Before Clive can land the final blow, a mysterious stranger carries Kupka off and the hunt for vengeance begins.

Trophy 14: Yes, Eikon

Seemed fitting to unlock all of Ifrit’s Eikon powers first! Ignition was the last move I mastered.

Trophy 15: From Stone to Sand

Official Description: Exact revenge.

Kupka was taken by the Waloeds to recoup in his castle located at Mothercrystal 3 in a desert mountain. Clive and Torgal hunt him down and one of my favourite boss fights happens between Ifrit and Titan. So epic with musics and everything!

After Kupka gets killed and the next big crystal go smashy, Clive has a painful dream talk with Ultima. A phoenix feather left by Joshua seems to have helped him. Also, the Waloed king Barnabas/Odin has a little moment about how deaths of crystals are beautiful or something. Clive has Titan powers now! Yay.
