Mastered!

For the onion gear: map the fast forward button to the controller's R2, and activate the turbo on the action button. With a strong team of 3 ninjas and a Shaman with premium weapons, fights can be finished in seconds.
WanderingNepNep 25 May 2022 23:24
Well, I would've been completed this, but I've apparently missed one of the 400+ items from chests and hidden locations in the game...
WanderingNepNep 25 May 2022 23:32
At this rate, I feel it might be easier to just start a new file and follow the 100% guide for the Pixel Remaster on Steam like I should've from the start, and then keep check more closely, however I'm going to take a break and move onto something else first because I'm feeling a bit burnt out atm.
Chauckles 16 Jul 2022 02:51
The last stretch of this game is pure unfiltered pain, but good lord was victory ever sweet.
Jungon 3 Dec 2022 23:49
Mastered, that was a long onion farming, I'll never want onions in my pizza, ever again.
williamgeesdorf 14 Jan 2023 03:22
Mastered (platinado)! Good game and set. If you're planning on mastering this one, be aware that getting the Onion equipment is a chore, very boring stuff since the colored dragons take a lot of battles to appear and RNG can be a b*tch.
KlydeKadell 29 Jan 2023 05:19
if this helps anyone, I was missing three chests, found them in gurgan valley, in a secret passage south of the dude who gives you the toad spell. I used a bunch of maps that didn't show this, so hope someone needed this.
WCopeland 3 Feb 2023 14:35
The sort order on these achievements makes it easy to miss a few.

For example, "Conquer the Shrine of Nepto with a non-caster in the lead spot." is close to the bottom of the list and not next to the achievement for clearing the Shrine of Nepto. IMO the missables should be re-ordered to be placed near the things they are relevant to on the list.
xenoriddley 6 Feb 2023 23:48
it's been a very hot minute since I've played FF3, but which ones were missable? I'm working my way through the franchise, and I'm trying to avoid having to replay most of a game just for one thing. Equipment drops I can find on my own, I'm just mainly wanting to know location based ones

The missables are listed in the RAGuide linked here: https://news.retroachievements.org/issues/2021-04/guide.html There's 7 or 8 of them

Mastered! BenTobitt's suggestion of finishing fights with mini seemed to really help with getting the onion equipment
Kinlaien 24 Oct 2023 22:56
Overall a great set that completely covers the game's content and then some, but is severely marred by the Onion Knight gear achievements. The two layers of RNG that are stacked against you (rare spawns + rare multiple drops) make the end of this set come to a disappointingly anti-climatic end, as you are just wanting the misery to end by the time the last achievement pops. To add insult to injury, you cannot even use the equipment you invested time to get because there is an achievement that prohibits its use. However, I suppose the silver lining, as it were, is that by the time it is over, you can be rest assured that you have engaged with every shred of content this game has to offer.

This was a fun set! The challenges weren't too crazy and although getting through the Cave of Darkness was a demanding test of patience, I was surprised how well its actually doable. Despite what the guide said I just went through the whole Cave in one go, bless the maker for the Build Up of the Monk / Karateka.
The Onion farm was a bit miserable, the Green Dragon on Floor 7 refused to give me anything but Onion Shields. But today I went down to Floor 6, always had one full round of attacks and then ended with Mini and bam, got the rest of the set super quickly.
Thank you for making it, but at the same time, like WCopeland said, the order of the achievements deserves an overhaul, to make it easier for people.

Mastered! This was a fun set. I thought I was in for some trouble when I had so much trouble with the onion kid achievement at the beginning but it wasn't so bad. Even the onion equipment at the end went easier than I expected. Thanks for the set!

Mastered, this is my first time playing the 2D version and it's kinda fun, while I don't see a difference between low and high job levels but Dragons are fairly rare and their drops are common enough (but still got lots of elixirs) or maybe I'm a bit too lucky, it didn't take me 6 hours with 16x fast forward.

Mastered and thank you for the set on this great game! Good luck to anyone trying to get the onion gear to drop. After a while you start buying into to the idea that break2/mini increases the drop rates. I'm really curious why I saw that written on several sites, is there any truth to it? I did seem to have better luck after putting mini into my grind rotation! 2 pieces dropped back to back being the gloves and the helmet.

Mastered, thank you so much for the set. The onion gear was not as bad as the expected it to be. It took 11 dragons for the 5 pieces needed (optimised by colour for drop chances). Praise be to RNGsus. The loot was by far the worst part, you practically HAVE to use the steam guide at every step of the game otherwise you would have to check every tree and rock in the game. Kinda kills the immersion a bit.
