I am not sure how to get this triggered because I succeeded at it and didn't get it. I started with my save file where I beat Ultimecia and got the no level/no junction achievement, but I junctioned GFs only (no magic junctioned) so I could use Card, since I'm pretty sure there's no other way to do this. Does it require you don't junction abilities? Don't EVER junction abilities? I got additional GFs, was that wrong? 15 people have gotten this so it's not absurd, but I played a lot of battles before I got them all without dying and it's pretty exhausting to guess what I did wrong.

i would like to understand what to do to get this cheevo too.
someone help?

defeat 1 of every monster lv100 at these islands is not a simple task... not beeing able to level up or junction...

if i kill, i level up, right? soft reset? i really dont know.

In the current version this only works by doing a soft reset. Despite the confusing wording, this achievement has the exact criteria of the other no level/no junction achievements. You can't use Card and you have to kill them where you get XP and then soft reset (L1+L2+R1+R2+Start+select) to get all the kills in one session. Which is pretty lame, honestly, and requires something I didn't do because it seemed like an exploit. Thanks Elbody for clearing this up for me.

The intended strategy is that you card or devour the enemy, I'll look into why those might not be working. The soft-reseting trick is unintentional and will no longer work next update.

I convinced devs just hate this game with a passion, and the goal is to make people to complete it as little as possible. Sure, let's make the hardest FF set even HARDER :)

For next revision, please make it so you also can't get hit at all during battle, that will ramp up the amount of resets even more, win win!

Please add to description that soft reset, also reset progress of cheevo. You need kill 4 monsters without death and loads. Here is how I did it. First of all be ABSOLUTELY sure that you have no Odin, he is ruin this cheevo as hell, I had to load my buck up saves cuz of him. Second, complete CC cards quest for Gilgamesh card. Third, lower hp as possible to Zell and Irvine, also buy some Dark ammo in Estar. Fourth, get abilities Card, Card mode, Alert, Initiative don't need. Learn abilities on Cactuars island or desert near island. Be sure to not level up, Irvines fire shots work very well here. Fifth, Do a separate save, go to ICtHn. Junctions : all must have Item command, Squall also have Card command, be sure you do not junction magic, set Battle speed to middle or lower. In battle: use Holy War whenever person is first, then use Zell 3 hit combo "up-down", "right - left", down, O, up, O" exactly in that order. its fastest way to deplete mobs HP here, be cause all monsters on both islands receive damage from Meteor strike. Irvine can use dark shot just in case, Squall just try Card enemies. Run away from monsters which you already defeated. List of monsters: Chimera, Tri-Face, Ochu and Malboro. Dont save during hunt, if you die you anyway must begin from zero. After getting cheevo load your save with Gilgamesh card, and go to Island closest to Hell :)
