Definitely agree on the ordering being tidied up, but why the Djinn ones? Those are fine as is imo otherwise it could get messy with them being split up. None of them are missable either since if you miss the location where you'd normally find them, they become available on the world map later in.
Throgg 22 Sep 2022 12:14
Djinn's arent miss-able so i don't think its necessarily terrible they're all at the end. This one cheevo (do you even lift?) should def be moved to before the Altin flood cheevo and after the Mogall forest one because it is a story cheevo that is missable and it is located at the very end of the story cheevo list.
Tsukuyomi 5 Jan 2023 19:36
Thank you so much for this! One of my favorite games of my childhood, now I can revisit it with achievements! :3
Eondrin 17 Nov 2023 04:24
Mastered! Perfectly fun set, besides lvl 40. 10/10 Recommend.
enzonahuy 4 Dec 2023 20:26
Really good set for one of the best JRPGS ever made. Onto TLA now :)
tomojin 6 Dec 2023 01:42
"Do You Even Lift?" is now ordered earlier in the list where it should be.
StonyPony 15 Dec 2023 01:51
Some of these are closer to exploits than actual decent sets. They should be marked as missable, I have to restart the game just because these are sequence breaking and not marked as missable...
tomojin 15 Dec 2023 02:28
Which achievements are you referring to? All the missables are already marked as far as I can tell.
StonyPony 15 Dec 2023 05:33
Yeah I was just about to delete this comment, because they moved on PC where Missable shows. That said, I didn't know that there's an actual SCENE for if you skip things and do things in a different order.

I really don't like I had to sort through older saves, but it was interesting to see that it does change the scenes some, so I took it back <3
StonyPony 15 Dec 2023 07:21
One extra thing I saw you may not know about: If you go to Lunpa before going to Kaylay docks, then come back to Hamlett's wife, she kinda scolds you for going, but says she's happy to know he's safe.

She also thinks close to "I don't care how much money it takes, as long as he's safe". Just thought you may like to know if you want to add another small thing to the set, like the Bandits.
ZucriyAmsuna 21 Dec 2023 02:01
PSA: For Achievements like RNG Goddess where you need to obtain an item dropped from an enemy, it does not count if your inventory is full, even if you choose to drop something during the resulting message.
StonyPony 21 Dec 2023 02:52
Zucriy, another comment already addressed that,but said it triggers once you leave the room I think.
baronj 30 Dec 2023 21:01
Great game, and great set except for the grind to level 40. That grind was just unpleasant and unnecessary. The battle mode was pretty easy even at that level anyways, just save your psycrystals from throughout the game. For the grind, I tried grinding the lizards in the desert, and then just grinding the pink tornado lizard, but the Venus Lighthouse with the lure cap was way faster with easy access to healing.
voitta 31 Dec 2023 17:08
Mastered! And grinding to lvl 40 was not that bad. It took an hour more or less, doing the 5 white tornados at the beginning of the desert and repeating it over and over again.

Great set overall.
Wolfric 5 Jan 2024 14:48
Wow, this set looks.... doable? Like, no BS achievements? Thanks for revitalizing my will to play this game if so, Dev! This is the perfect approach to Base Sets I wish most other games here had smh
TheJadeNova 7 Jan 2024 21:54
I think this game need more achievements.
RetroTrainer 27 Jan 2024 00:20
Mastered! Another awesome Golden Sun run. The best GBA RPG.
melmoth89 1 Feb 2024 08:49
Awesome game, nice set of achievements! Had to do the RNG Goddess and arena mode ones twice, though. Not sure why they didn’t unlock the first time I fulfilled the conditions. Other than that, I really had a blast replaying GS!
Ghosty 11 May 2024 04:20
Great set, loved replaying Golden Sun for the first time since I was a kid!
VioletNoiaMaca 16 May 2024 22:17
Mi first Mastered video game here! A great set from a great video game. Definitely, the cheevo "Lord of Gods", also requires a bit of luck, because in some sessions I had to battle constanly againt bosses in almost every battle, and in other sessions I moslty had to battle against normal enemies. It all depends on what the game assigns to battle. Anyways, thanks for the set!! I enjoyed playing this game while remembering my childhood! :)
