    10 HOURS TO GET THIS THING... and I still need the goddess ribbon

    Took me 148 krakens, little bit over the odds but I got it!

    Jesus Christ the moment when i finally got this i couldn't stop shaking, all the other 1/128 drops where like 20-30 kills, this one took me 3 whole days, i think i lost 5 years of my lifespan just from the sheer amount of stress.

    My advice is to get a party member's speed up to 137. That gives you a 100% chance to run away from anything in the area, letting you skip unwanted fights.

    After killing 500+ krakens over 12+ hours with turbo on, I was about to give up.

    I decided to follow the easy manip video that was posted by tinycyan in the comments here. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1019942128

    I believe the names of characters do matter, but luckily I ran with the default names.

    I'm sure I would've gotten it eventually the grindy way but man, I spent 12+ hours on grinding krakens and then got it within 10 minutes of discovering the video and copying what they did. Whatever you way you guys decide to do it, good luck and thanks for the sets! Mastered both.

    So nobody say ir but i will: all 1/128 in this set is a pain. But this one over all happiness of the set...

    Yeah, more than 1 hour and +50 Krakens and the damn bat didn't drop. RNG manipulation is the way then.
    MuffinsMcDanish 18 May 2023 11:55
    I HIGHLY recommend following the RNG manip video. It's a bit of a pain to get it to work, but it's no where near as bad as farming an enemy that you have to work to get to spawn and then hope you hit that less than 1% drop chance.

    I got the Gutsy Bat after about 20 or so tries, went back to save, then tried again on the way back to the final boss and got a second one.

    tinycyan is a hero. Followed that twitch clip, got it after maybe 15 minutes of practice. So glad that's over!
    Chimmite 16 Aug 2023 17:51
    I spent 4 hours trying to get the bat legit with no luck, decided to try the rng manip from the clip above, and got it on my third attempt. Making notes of what I needed to do deadass took longer than the trick itself. Incredible stuff, bless tinycyan.

    Bro, I've been grinding this for 3 hours and I got a second Goddess Ribbon :(

    (I got my first Goddess Ribbon in Onett lol)
    WKGames 18 Oct 2023 06:44
    After 5 hours of grinding and a mental breakdown (JK lol), I have finally found the Gutsy Bat without RNG manipulation.

    This was by far the hardest of the 1/128 achievements imo. There'd be times where I'd go 10 fights in a row without seeing a Bionic Kraken.

    I'm glad I'm finally done with this set, it was a lot longer than I expected.

    by the time i got this, i got 3 more goddess ribbons

    Wow it only took an hour :D

    7 hours and 4 resets later, the wicked can finally rest. This is the worst achievement on here no doubt. I may have lost the mastery on the first playthrough from missing a gift in magicant, I can imagine that replaying the entire game again to get that achievement would be less of a headache than getting this bat. Beware, new achievement hunters. This one will take up a few hours of playtime.
