Perfect Playthrough Guide – Cold Steel IV Official English Localization Walkthrough



Perfect playthrough guide for Trails of Cold Steel IV, All collectibles and missables, all treasure chest maps, all master quartz, etc.

Home»Game Guides»Cold Steel IV Perfect Playthrough Guide

We have everything in our guide for a perfect playthrough of Cold Steel IV. We used the official English localized copy, so all item names are 100% correct and are not guessed translations.

We have all treasure chests with maps, enemy names in English, all character notes, all minigames, all master quartz, all books such as Imperial Chronicles, The Chosen One, Three & Nine, cooking recipes, etc!

Midway I will start counting through everything. All Treasure Chests, all Trial Chests, all recipes, all enemies in the enemy list, all fish, all character notes, etc. I have a counter so you can go back if you missed anything.

*There is one thing that you can’t perfect on a first playthrough, sadly, and that’s the romance trophies. You only have so many bonding points you can spend on your first playthrough, on New Game Plus you get infinite bonding points and can max everything, but on your first playthrough you can only max out a certain number of relationships. Here’s the trick: some bonding events have character notes mixed in, some bonding events have hearts mixed in, and the rest are normal bonding events. Character notes bonding events will be noted and prioritized because you need all character notes for the trophy and they’re a logistical nightmare. For the female relationship trophies, there’s one for every female except Duvalie and Celine, but you need to see the “2 heart bonding events” beforehand for that girl and then trigger the girl’s final romance event. One trophy is for maxing out all guys’ relationships, and one more trophy for maxing out Duvalie and Celine’s together. So it’s best to choose some of these and go for them, then do a cleanup run on NG+. 

*I think that Trial Chest Bosses DON’T need to be scanned for the Enemy List trophy! Why? I notice I scan them and my enemy counter in the book doesn’t go up, they don’t count towards the 490, just like how the Extra’s enemy section doesn’t increase the counter either! I scan them all to be safe though. Divine Knight boss battles count towards the enemy list trophy, but they automatically are marked as complete when you defeat them, you don’t need to scan them because I don’t believe there’s an item to scan them.

Part: Eventide: Night of Promises

  • Final romance options happen here, if you saw a girl’s 2 heart bonding events and maxed 5/5 star bonds, you need to spend a ticket on an attraction with the girl of your choice, she’ll ask if you want to hang out afterwards, say “Yes” to be safe
  • You can do 5+4 ticket events, so you can choose all the girls and make promises to as many of them as you want, you will get a prompt at the end to choose the girl you will actually see, there’s no punishment for making many promises so you should just do it to be safe
  • So if you meet the requirements of multiple girls, make a backup save, remember you can’t romance any males, and you can’t romance Duvalie nor Celine, you need to speedrun through the game again to do any relationships you missed out on for those trophies, but you actually have to beat the game again on Nightmare Mode for another trophy anyways and that’s easier on a New Game Plus
  • There is one trick, if you have a girl that’s close to 5 but not quite there, you can use some tickets to level up their bond level, but that won’t help if you missed out her heart events
  • Sadly it’s a logistical nightmare and working out the math you can’t do it perfectly, so do as many as you can, then save the rest for another playthrough. Believe me because I actually made a Perfect Persona 5: Royal schedule with everything maxed!
  • You can only progress the story by spending tickets and then story scenes will automatically occur, so remember to make a backup save, there are many missables and collectibles in this interlude as well so be careful
  • Character Notes added automatically: Millium 2, George 2, Roselia 2, Duvalie 2

  • Rean 3, Cassius 2 Character Notes added automatically
  • Go to Lakeside Beach, talk to Sharon or Anton, Sharon 2 Character Note acquired, talk to Anton again for another ticket

Everyone says that you only need to get all the men to maximum bond levels, but you still need to go to the romance scene and choose to see nobody to get it.
  • Trophies Acquired: Tsunderbolts and Lightning (Just max out Celine and Duvalie’s bond levels and do an event in Mishelam with each of them, afterwards I got this trophy without having to go to the romance selection screen, for example just take Duvalie and Celine each on the Ferris Wheel and have their bond levels maxed)
  • Your head spinning from all these? Individual girl trophies are: Yuna, Altina, Musse, Alisa, Laura, Emma, Fie, Sara, Towa, Elise, and Alfin
  • One trophy for all men: Kurt, Ash, Elliot, Machias, Jusis, Gaius, and Crow
  • One trophy for both: Duvalie and Celine
  • When you’re finished, make sure you reload a “proper” save, make sure your save has Sharon 2 and Claire 1 Character Notes as well as every other Character Note I listed, and proceed to the final act.
  • For fun, I’ve included some romantic images of Rean below. Who is the best harem lead character? I keep debating between Rean, Kirito, and Persona 5 Protagonist.

Endgame Reminders, Finish Cooking Trophy and Maxing Thors Unity

  • You’ve completed all content possible before the last dungeon, soon is the point of no return. Make a backup save or two now!
  • Make sure you’ve gotten the trophies I listed earlier, such as Vantage Masters, Pom!, fishing, etc.
  • Make sure you have all the Character Notes I listed, make sure Treasure Chests is 309/358 and Enemy is 416/490, we will finish Chests and Enemies in the final dungeon. Trial Chests should be finished now though!
  • Might as well use up any gifts you’ve gotten, you can’t carry over Bond Levels as far as I know, but you get unlimited Bonding Points in New Game Plus anyways, so no worries
  • Report ALL Arcus info such as Request Completion, Acquired AP: 34, Rank A0, Total AP: 336, Thors Unity: 240, you will get: The Magnificient Class VII trophy
  • Report Profile Notes via ARCUS, I got up to 90% info logged, got Magius Master Quartz
  • Report Battle Notes via ARCUS, I got 80% info logged, got Chevalier Master Quartz and ALL MASTER QUARTZ TROPHY! Trophy Acquired: The Legendary Rean QUARTZ-er
  • Report Book Notes via ARCUS, bunch of Vitality Droplets, and Black Zemurian Ore
  • Now you need the Cooking Trophy, it’s just a grind but it’s not too bad, buy 99 of each ingredient and make 1 superb, 1 unique and 1 perculiar dish for each of the 28 recipes, for unique you must use a particular character to cook it, for superb you need anyone with smiling winky face, and for perculiar you need anyone with a blue sad face. Sometimes the good cooks will screw up too, so try a few times so you get 1 unique, 1 superb and 1 perculiar for each dish
  • For unique dishes, use: Tasty Potato Chowder – Sara, Delicate Millefeuille – Altina, Luxurious Cheese Doria – Randy, Spaghetti Bolognese – Ash, Delicious Fish Pie – Elliot, Acerbic Tomato Pizza – Fie, Ozelle Miso Noodles – Kurt, Midnight Cola – Gaius, XL Hashed Rice – Laura, Starberry Tart – Musse, Creamy Risotto – Rean, Sea Breeze Bouillabaisse – Duvalie, Bittersweet Tomato Gelato – Machias, Crispy Pickles – Alisa, Refreshing Berry Shake – Angelica, Delicious Cheese Curry – Jusis, Alster Plate – Emma, Yummy Caesar Salad – Tita, Wild Grill – Towa, Cheesy Penne Gratin – Juna, Addictive Mapo Tofu – Elise, Imperial Tea – Alfin, Shrimp Cutlet Sandwich – Crow, Filling Thors Lunch – Sharon
  • I ran out of Globby Fat and Clear Gelatin, I farmed more from the salamanders in Draco Sanctuary
  • Get Ashen Chef-alier for cooking all recipe variations
  • Give Peculiar Dishes to Margarita on 2F of Courageous II, show Sandy your Recipe Book as well, then Crossbell City Entertainment District – Imelda’s Antique Shop to report unique dishes, and go to the Branch Campus – School Entrance, and give Edel superb dishes, REMEMBER that you cooked Artisan Special Pie, the superb Delicious Fish Pie for a sidequest early on, so if Edel is still saying “You have no superb dishes to give me!” then you should try making another Artisan Special Pie from Delicious Fish Pi and giving it to her! Hope your thumb doesn’t fall off from all the button-mashing!
  • You get A LOT of Thors Unity from giving all these dishes in, you now will have over 425 Thors Unity, for a Thors Unity Grade of Unbreakable, make a report to Olivert with your ARCUS and you will get a trophy: Pride of the Horned Lions

Remaining Trophy Cleanup Before Endgame

  • We can’t do every Every Treasure Chest, Every Enemy, or Every Character Note until we beat the game, you can get Master Quartz Level 10 easily from defeating the bosses in the final dungeon, and you can raise link level to 7 as well in the final dungeon
  • We need to beat the game on Nightmare mode for a trophy, and most likely you’ll do this on a New Game Plus for a far easier time, NG+ lets you carry over equipment, levels, etc., and on this NG+ run you can get any relationships you didn’t get before
  • To get the rest of the trophies, do grinding, you need over a million mira (cheap way to do this is save, sell everything, get the trophy, then reload), you have over 100 battles won, you can grind for 700 battles won trophy, 300 advantage encounters, 100 S-crafts used, win with tactical bonus of x3.0 or greater (try running into many mobs at once and use an S-craft), inflict Break over 800 times, 500 follow-up attacks, burst 50 times, brave orders 100 times. It’s all mostly grinding so you can do it now if you want because if you go into the new dungeon you can only continue on a new game plus, just remember to go for the true ending otherwise you can’t create a clear save for NG+
  • When ready, let’s go into the final dungeons, this is the point of no return! Remember, make an extra save! Buy many Battle Scopes, but you can always buy more at the orb stations where you rest
  • You’re given the choice which order you want to play as, we’ll go in order from A to E….

  • Choose: “Restart After…”, then “Tread the Path…”
  • Final Bosses, scan them all, switch to Teams B and C to finish those parts, then return to Team A for main body
  • LET ISHMELGA LOGE SUMMON THE TWO “VESSEL” ENEMIES! I doubt you can beat the final boss that quickly enough that he doesn’t summont them, but I’ll mention it to be safe considering there are many combinations of quartzes that break the game.
  • Bosses: Ishmelga Loge, Loge Ogre, Loge Aura, Shadow Vessel, Afterglow Vessel (490/490), Chronicle of Battle Trophy acquired
  • Save a Clear Save File after
