White Knight Chronicles - unattainable trophies?

Looking to pick this game up cheap, however I know they closed servers down a while ago. Looking at the trophy list it doesn't look as though anything is out of reach with servers nonexistent, but I wanted to be certain before I throw it in my machine.

Any one know if this game can be completed despite having no server life left?

I believe that it is still possible but will be very very time consuming offline and apparently a lot harder

I don't mind that as much - if it is a good game that can hold my attention then the longevity, and the difficulty, would not be a problem.

Munchmagic is right, I've heard that with the loss of it's online the game because much harder yet I've never heard the term unattainable associated with it. So there's hope!

i know that you need the extra DLC quests to get the 50 S rank throphy since there are only 51 on the disc and 2 are impossible to solo. with a patch they added new 'blue quests' to the list. But before the servers were shut down rumors were going around that the blue quests would become unavaiable since the game needed to make contact with geonet to obtain them.
i have no clue if they are avaiable now or not. but i would do some research before playing it. or try on another account.

If you have the blue quests the game is possible to plat. but it will be hard and take alot of time. Took me 548 hours to plat it online.

It's possible to plat this game if you are willing to grind for (tens of) thousands of hours cause without the blue levels it's close to impossible to solo.

....548 hours to plat it online WITH the blue quests? If it takes longer now, I can only imagine somebody doing it from scratch...

yup it takes alot of time to complete and it includes massive amounts of grinding. i did it with the blue quests and with other people. the quests arent really made to solo but it is possible. just expect to fail alot until you get the hang of it. i think you can easily double that time if you are doing it solo with the blue quests.

ive heard that the second game is way easier to solo since you can bring NPCs with you on your quests. This option is not avaiable in the 1st game and you are literaly doing everything alone. i might try to plat the 2nd game somewhere down the line but enough grinding for now.

Hot damn... 100+ hours is the line I draw where I know I've sunk deep into a game. But wow that's a lot. That's just a stupid grind and I hate it when developers seek to waste our time like that.

Well, this thread went from hopeful to depressing awfully fast laugh

I may still pick this up, since it is currently $8 used, and see how I like it...

I sunk 250 hours into WKC2 and only got up to guild rank 22. I would imagine it would take double if not triple if you're grinding guild points on your own so certainly a long time to get all the trophies now. My estimate would be 500-1000 hours when online was active, 2000+ hours solo.

Mercy on the soul that spends that long on one game... and not even having endless fun, just grinding cry

I will eventually (in a few months) be booting this up to get the simpler trophies. Doubt that I will be working on the silly time ones.

Can you console link? It's been years since I played it.

I've platinum'd it at 400 hours but because i played online when servers where up. Now, solo, you are looking at +550 hours. Is doable, everything can be grinded (the hardest trophy would be the 50 S ranks)
