Welcome to the trophy guide for Dusk Diver. This can also be considered a walkthrough and may be used for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam. Achievements for Steam and Xbox are in almost all cases the same as the PlayStation 4 Trophies. A roadmap is provided in the stages below.

Follow us on twitter for the latest news and giveaways.

Stage 1 – Finish the main story


Dusk Diver has no ‘no point of return’ and everything can be obtained post-game. That being said it is wise to watch out for a couple of things:
Make sure to read When the peach is ripe
Completing missions (The 1st completion) and picking up Dragon Vein Stones are the only way to obtain to obtain Skill Points. You can’t farm them! So to make the game easier, actively collect the stones as you go to upgrade making the game easier.
Completing Link Quests powers up your D. Arms as well, which is an invaluable asset.
Don’t worry about S Ranks your first run, S Ranks are all based on time and time alone. So being OP and abusing TP items makes them trivial end-game.
Leo is the heaviest hitter and a great shield destroyer, utilize him on big targets on groups of the medium enemies.
Bahet has wonderful AoE making crowd control a breeze.

That being said there isn’t much else to say. Dusk Diver is a very straight forward game that is an absolute perfect entry into this genre! The game isn’t difficult, the collectibles except for about 3 aren’t out of the way, nothing is ridiculous!

Stage 2 – Post-Game content


You could do post-game in whatever way you see fit but there is recommended paths. As you’ll be wanting to S Rank everything in a single go without repeats it’s advised to do these last. So work towards collecting all Dragon Vein Stones in Ximending to most of your skill points for upgrades. Complete your Link Quests as they’ll unlock training for trophies and a powered up ultimate finishing move. Training is unlocked by affection levels increased drastically by restaurants and stalls, so wrap those up now too.

With city related trophies collected, you’ll want to go for your S Ranks. This also has a recommended path. Story Levels have the most Drgaon Vein Stones, you’ll also have to S Rank the Hard difficulty variants. Hard mode rewards HUGE skill point boosts, so you’ll want to do them. Story Mode on Hard isn’t hard, you’ll be plenty powered up. After you S Rank the Story Missions, you’ll want to do Boss’s Missions. The reason is they need to be done but they also reward store items and discounts! The discounts are what’s important here. Lastly are the training missions and this is where the difficulty spikes. Leo isn’t an issue, he hits hard and can take down evrything without much hassle. After Leo’s Missions (or before if you have trouble) You’ll have 200,000+ Cash, buy A LOT of +50% TP items and +100% TP items and equip them both. You’ll easily have 60-70+ 50% TP and around 15 – 20+ Full TP items. You’ll be able to use 5 50%’s and 2 Full’s each mission, and this is how you’ll S Rank with ease and quick. Bahet with his while transformed will easily hit high combo’s and rake in yellow and green orbs making it EASY to maintain the form for long periods of time allowing you to fly through missions. Use the finishers on the Big guys and reset with the items. La Viada… You might just fail to S Rank her missions at times. Your power + her output is terrible at damage meaning even blue enemies give you trouble. Her crowd control isn’t AoE it’s small spaced out area’s which often don’t activate. Due to these 2 factors it’s hard maintaining her transformations too. You’ll have to play around and figure out where in the mission is best for you to use them. As for fully powering up every character, this game has the exact amount needed to do just that upon completion of your final S Rank.

Trophies


 The King of Youshanding
Earn every trophy. Thanks for playing!


 The master of Gacha Gacha
Obtain all the contents in all Gacha machines.

There are a total of 5 Gacha Machines in Ximending. 3 are unlocked after half-way through the story, the remaining 2 in post-game. When unlocked you’ll need to find them and purchase all the content. Luckily, Gacha machines won’t have repeat items. So you’ll get all the items in one go! Each spin only costs $200 so you’ll need some change as you’ll be earning quite a few items.

Refer to each of the respective gacha trophies for their locations.


 Where there’s a will there’s a wish
Acquire all Lottery poetry.

Lottery poetry are slips of paper you will draw at Mazu Temple (Bottom left of the map). You’ll have to progress in story and Link Quests first though. These are free to draw, with the problem being it is heavily reliant on RNG. There are 62 slips you’ll need to collect, but don’t be discouraged if you end up drawing 1000 or more trying to do so. Prepare some Netflix or whatever you watch and just press X for a movie or two and come back. Back at Tumaz Mart you can check your gallery book and see how many you are missing if you’re ever curious of how close.


 ECO life
Acquire all Dragon Vein Stones. That was a tough work…

Dragon Vein Stones are a collectible in Dusk Diver. They are used as a form of protection to get through Dimensional Rifts. Higher levels require more. There are more stones than necesary to complete the story and there are a few ways to earn them. You get Dragon Vein Stones through: finding them, quest rewards, LINK quests, Stall familiarity, etc. In city stones can be located by paying the Tao Master too.

Below you will find a list with all the Dragon Vein Stones in the game!
Note: Click the maps to enlarge them.












 The Guardian of Ximending
Clear all levels in S rank. Kunlun should give Yumo a letter of gratitude…

All levels includes: Story Missions [Normal and Hard], Training Missions [Normal and Hard], Boss’s Missions [Normal and Hard]. S Ranks are solely based on the time it took to complete the mission and nothing else. So rushing objectives should always be your main objective. Refer to stage 2 for tips.


 Can you keep up with my rhythm?
Power up Bahet to the max in SKILL menu.

Refer to Heeeeeya! I can beat ten guys!


 Everything about the magical girl
Acquire all contents in Gallery.

all contents means when you chek the book on the table in Tumaz Mart all the subcategories are completely filled. These subcategories are filled by beating enemies, drawing lotteries, completing link quests, and doing all gacha’s. As long as you’re obtaining all the other trophies this will come with those. This trophy will not pop when you acquire them all though, you must view the book for this trophy to pop.


 Aim for the stars
Complete “Final Training with Viada”

Refer to Double Star Lion Roar


 Broken Chords
Complete “Final Training with Bahet”

Refer to Double Star Lion Roar


 Double Star Lion Roar
Complete “Final Training with Leo”

Training Missions are unlocked after viewing “Paw Events”. You’ll find them on the map by a Blue Circle with a Black Paw. These events will unlock a new store and a Training Mission. The events are unlocked when a characters Affection fills the circle up. Each character has 4 events to see in total. The difficulty with Training Missions though is that only specified characters can be used.


 The considerate Boss
Complete “Boss’s wayward request”

Boss’s wayward request is the final mission Boss will give you. As you progress through the story you will unlock Boss Missions (You’ll have to comeplete them to unlock the next one as well). So check back in-between missions often. Boss Missions aren’t like regular missions, some of them incorporate platforming, or procedures to go through. Though the are all short and not many mission to do. the wayward request is the 5th quest in her line-up. Boss’s Missions usually reward discounts and items from her store.

Boss’s mission list

 When the peach is ripe
Get the tree in Tumaz mart to bloom.

The tree this trophy refers to is the Peach Tree inside the Tumaz Mart garden. it takes A LOT of water. You can only water it once between missions. So make it an absolutely necessary habit to water this tree after every mission. After completing all the story missions, boss’ missions, and training missions the tree still wasn’t watered enough, to give you an idea about the amount. If you water the tree after every mission, you’ll unlock this early post-game as you’re wrapping missions up.

As you water the tree you’ll notice the text change as the tree goes through stages.


 Good man, good deeds, good Yumo
Complete all LINK quests.

LINK Quests are Dusk Diver’s version of side-quests. You’ll unlock them by progressing through the story, and beating your different missions. They are done sequentially, so you need to beat the quest chain in order, don’t worry about skipping anything. They’re easy to spot, they don’t show up on the whole map but they pop up easily on the HUD. You’ll know you see one when you see a Question Mark in a blue circle appears on the HUD. These quests range from picking an item up, visiting a location, doing a small battle, etc.

Below is a list of maps showing each quests starting location.







 I can shoot the stars
Power up Le Viada to the max in SKILL menu.

Refer to Heeeeeya! I can beat ten guys!


 How can I survive this month?
Spend a certain amount of money to buy the items in Tumaz mart.

The items in Tumaz Mart refers to just that, the items Boss sells. As to the certain amount of money, you’re looking at about $50,000. Due to the games low difficulty, you probably won’t be buying close to that by game end. This will most likely come in post-game. You could complete the every other trophy without this being done but you’ll be utilising it to get S Ranks, and platinum time shorter. So save your money.


 120% POWER!
Power up Leo to the max in SKILL menu.

Refer to Heeeeeya! I can beat ten guys!


 Heeeeeya! I can beat ten guys!
Power up Yumo to the max in SKILL menu.

Powering up to max in the SKILL menu, means spending your Skill Points to level up all your stats. There’s 3 ways to obtain Skill Points:
-Collecting Dragon Vein Stones (200 in mission/50 outside of mission)
-First time mission completion.
-One time Mission Rewards.

What this means is that you won’t be able to farm skill points and be heavily overpowered at any point in the game. Dusk Diver once you collect all 153 Dragon Vein Stones and beaten all missions with an S Rank, will reward you with the exact amount of Skill Points to fully level Yumo, Leo, Bahet, and Le Viada.


 The beginning of a new journey
Complete the main quest. Thanks for playing!

Dusk Diver is not that long of a game, variably depending on how much you rush the story it can generally take you about 10 hours. There are a total of 11 Story Missions for you to complete. The ‘First Mission’ is the tutorial and isn’t replayable, so it’s not included in the mission listing in Tumaz Mart.


 Don’t call me a gangster
Yumo meets the Guardian of Ximending – Leo.

After the tutorial fight in Youshanding for the first time, you’ll be brought back to Tumaz Mart. It is here that Leo will introduce himself.


 Rock with me!
Yumo meets the young master of the bat clan – Bahet.

 Come on baby!!
Yumo meets the master of Tamsui River – Le Viada.

Le Viada is the last companion to join your party and does so after CHapter 6. You’ll be investigating the questionable new weather and occurences hapenning in Ximending and Youshanding. Le Viada is the reasoning, beat her and bring her back to Tumaz Mart. She’ll be introduced there earning you this trophy.


 Play with Nemea
Yumo meets the mysterious girl – Nemea.

You will periodically see glimpses of Nemea through the course of the story. It won’t be until after you complete Chapter 8 that you’ll be introduced to her at Tumaz Mart. Be careful though, her battle is the first actual difficulty spike in the game though her moves are predictable and you shouldn’t have trouble.

For those having trouble with her boss fight:
She takes set amounts of damage upon her shield being depleted so that should be your entire focus. This is done easily in 2 steps. 1st, you hit her shield a few times to charge up enough to use a 1SP attack with Leo than you’ll dodge away. 2nd, when you’re Just Dodge cooldown is gone, you’ll dodge her attacks to slow time down and instant refill your SP, use a 3SP Attack with Leo, use it now on her. Rinse and repeat these steps until she’s defeated.
