Breath of Fire IV

My suggestions: Get all possible skills (learned from masters and enemies), kill the trean / trunked, make a combo of 135+ hits, best equipment for all characters, kill the trean in two turns, get all the items from fishing points, beat trunked with Fou Lo.

Hey DaniloZlatan thanks for the suggestions.
I wasn't sure if any of the skills were missable but I did some more research and it doesn't look like any of them are so I will definitely include learning them all and probably also another for learning half of them.
I think the game only requires a 70 hit combo as the highest for any master but making a higher one like 135+ sounds good too for a challenge.
Probably won't make one for just killing trean/trunked (although maybe if doing that as Fou Lou a good challenge?) but killing them in one or two turns was planned.
Best equipment I was intending to do but I think can be somewhat subjective depending on who you ask so I'm going to need to do more research on that but will try to include at least one piece for each character. If you have specific suggestions for this please let me know.
Fishing point items I'm still trying to figure out how I want to handle. Render costs 99 stamps which I read requires a ton of grinding so I'm not sure if I want to include that but I might. If not then I will make it for a cheaper item that is available. I'll have to see how bad the grind is when I get there. Also if there is any tracking of types of fish you caught or maybe just fishing spots then I'll try to include that.

Really grinding for the Render is not worth it, besides not being fun, for me you can stay out of the set. The fairy village deserves some achievements.

Glad someone is finally making this, Breath of Fire 4 is one of my favorite games, and even back then the tasks you do in game for masters and whatnot felt a lot like today's achievements.
But I don't know if it's a good idea to add achievements for equipment if the chances to get the items are extremely low. From my experience low chance RNG farming is just not fun in video games. I don't know what the chances for the items to drop are, but I do remember Goo King being a pain in the ass. If I have to use an example of a case of un-fun farming, recently I tried to earn the achievements in Earthbound, and I had to stop on the Bionic Kraken, because not only the monster appears super rarely, the item had only a 1/128 chance of dropping. It would take hours or even days to get it, unless I got so lucky I may as well go for the lottery.
I know getting best equipment in rpgs is considered a custom in achievement hunting at this point, but I say prioritize fun before customs, that's my opinion.
