The Legend of Dragoon was a moderately successful title when it was first released in the final days of the 90s. The game was fairly received by critics and players alike but not at the level for a game that was dubbed as the “Final Fantasy killer”. It has since earned a cult following over the years. So much so that Sony gave this game another chance to reach modern-day gamers.
In this trophy guide, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about getting the game’s newly acquired Platinum trophy.The trophy run for the Legend of Dragoon is actually not too difficult. There are a couple of notable items, namely the secret bosses and the Stardust. We’ll get to them in a bit. The first thing to note is that the gold trophies correspond with each chapter of the game. Back in the day, you used to change out discs before starting the next chapter. Here, the trophies are unlocked after resolving a major conflict and moving on to the next region.To the “Have a Blast at the Carnival” trophy, all you need to do is play some minigames with Shana by your side. There is a test of timing with an obstacle course, a shell game variant where you have to keep track of where the bird is while three men run in circles on stage. A shooting gallery, if memory serves right. Regardless, my advice is keep playing until the trophy pops up.
The “Rags to Riches” trophy in the Legend of Dragoon can be somewhat tricky in the early game. You don’t come across a lot of armor and weapons, so your first impulse is to buy them from shops. That’s all good. Eventually, you will have 7000G in your pockets well into the mid-game. So instead of trying to get it early, why not just do your best and let the money roll in as normal? Also, there are numerous treasure spots inside each area, they go a long way in saving you money.
All for the love of all that is good in this world, do not skip out on getting the Golden Dragoon Spirit early. I know you can get it in disc 4 and yes, you’ll have to pay 1000G to get it. But it’s so worth having early in the game. Besides, I don’t think it’s good overall to get the spirit in chapter 4 and have to level it up for it to be slightly useful.
