The Legend of Heroes is a series of role-playing video games developed by Nihon Falcom Corporation. First starting as a part of the Dragon Slayer series in the late 1980s, the series evolved into its own decade-spanning, interconnected series spanning fourteen entries, encompassing multiple meta series within it as well. The most recent entry, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV, released in Japan on September 27, 2018

The first entry of the series was released in 1989 as Dragon Slayer: The Legend of Heroes, and was part of Nihon Falcom's Dragon Slayer line of games. It was released for various computer platforms, as well as consoles such as the Mega Drive, Super Famicom, and the PC Engine. The PC Engine version would be the only version to be released in English, and the only Legend of Heroes title released in North America until 2005. Meanwhile, in Japan, the series continued with Dragon Slayer: The Legend of Heroes II, released in 1992 for a similar selection of platforms.

Subsequent games in the series dropped Dragon Slayer from the title. The Legend of Heroes III, The Legend of Heroes IV, and The Legend of Heroes V comprised the Gagharv trilogy, a set of connected games taking place in the same world.

After the conclusion of the Gagharv trilogy, a new story began with a new trilogy, the Trails in the Sky subseries. The three titles in it, First Chapter, Second Chapter and The 3rd collectively made up the sixth entry in the series.

Falcom switched to a duology for the seventh entry, consisting of The Legend of Heroes VII: Zero no Kiseki in 2010, and The Legend of Heroes VII: Ao no Kiseki in 2011. After that, the company moved on to the Trails of Cold Steel subseries, releasing the first title in 2013, the second in 2014, the third in 2017, and fourth and final title in 2018.

Trails In The Sky FC - Review - Tarks Gauntlet

Artwork used in the thumbnail is from the EVO version of the game and not present in the version I played. I decided on this simply because it's some of the only good, hi-res and clean full body images of the main characters out there, and could save me from having a thumbnail identical to everybody elses.

I played and loved both entries in the Legend of Heroes Trails of Cold steel, and have been told non-stop to give this series a go as well.

Before I get told any more and risk the game feeling like it's been over-hyped, it's time I finally start. Falcoms magnum opus series, The Legend of Heroes.

Trails in the Sky the 3rd Star Door 12: Richard's R&A Research


Trails in The Sky the 3rd (PC - Nightmare Mode) : Chapter 8-5 Nightmare Arena (Advanced Strategy)

Please see the playlist description for more details...

The basic of arena should be same as before:

Of all party members, this is probably the best setup for me. Julia can be temporary tank + support with her craft. Richard and Tita are Damage/Carry (D/C). Kevin is your protector with Gaia Shield and Grail Sphere..

This arena actually open various strategies, as I've done all different combinations with Kevin and Richard offscreen. These two are my ace as I said before on previous video, so the last 2 members should be 1 D/C and 1 support/tank (but this vary depend on the group). To make it easier to explain, I've divided party members to group A and B which you should pair 2 members from each group (don't pair 2 members from same group).

Group A: Tita, Renne, Olivier, Josette, Anelace
Group B: Julia, Ries, Zin, Agate, Scherazard
Free (can fit to any group): Estelle, Joshua, Kloe, Mueller

Again, it's long and hard to explain everything to grind this arena, but you will understand everyone's role eventually. Learning all 16 party members will help you in final dungeon....

Trails in the Sky the 3rd - Prologue Boss: Gilbert (Nightmare Mode)


Fight: 0:15

I hate this guy. He always tries to freeze you first turn so you better have 100 CP from last time. Focus first on him and then kill the G-Apache. Make sure to heal yourself in between. G-Apache has high ADF so just use normal attacks. Overall nothing has changed since the Japanese run.

What Game In The Trails of Cold Steel Series Should I Play First? | Features | Backlog Battle

The Kiseki series is slowly approaching its conclusion here in the West, but while many long time fans have been waiting in the wings for the grand finale of this story arc to close, more players are just starting to discover the wonderment and magic of the series. Trails of Cold Steel, the only series to be in fully 3D, attracts this much attention, but many newcomers are unaware of the kind of baggage the series has. In fact, the simple question of, “Can I start with Trails of Cold Steel (insert number here)?” has an answer that’s not so straightforward. This video will dispel and provide as much information to prospective players as possible, providing some much needed context as to why players advise newcomers to start in games outside of this series. Above all else, it’s a video for newcomers who want to be able to figure out how to consume this series on their own time and volition, and that’s exactly what I aim to deliver in this video! If you have a friend who’s on the fence about the series, send this video over to them, then join us in the conversation in the comments below!

The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky the 3rd (Let's try)

Беглое знакомство с третьей главой серии, пришедшей с PSP. The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky the 3rd на PC.

Let's Play Trails in the Sky the 3rd (Blind) Part 1: A Luxury Cruise Airship

What better way to start a Trails in the Sky game than by cruising in the skies of Liberl. Let's watch how to pull off a heist in a not-so-smooth manner.

Note: Apologies for baby crying noises!

Trails in The Sky the 3rd (PC - Nightmare Mode) : Chapter 8-10 Phantasmagoria Boss Rush

Please see the playlist description for more details...

5:00 Left Gate
17:10 Main Gate
35:30 Right Gate

All boss shares similar strategy, only differs in how you anticipate each boss moves. Again, they are not best or fast party formations so you should able to divide all 16 party members for better strategy.... Because Tita hold Zemurian Weapon, I can live without Clock Up EX on Loli Team.

Trails in The Sky the 3rd (PC - Nightmare Mode) : Chapter 8-4 Nightmare Arena First Win

Please see the playlist description for more details...

My first win in Nightmare Arena, which is the end game grinding for this game along with the Abyss. I'm doing this grind for getting 400 battles (Star Door 13 and 14). This video is obviously not at best performance. For the first win, you'll get Soul Quartz and Anelace's final weapon so this video is like hardest time of this arena... The next video will be only like 40 minutes with better setup and it can be cakewalk once you understand how this arena works...

Basically I will re-do this arena a lot (sometimes with the Abyss from video 8-1 to 8-3) by cycling all 16 party members. Kevin and Richard are your ace and will be 100% here, while Kloe is needed for the Abyss...

Since people are not aware or not really grind this arena (because they get 400 battles from normal battles), there are many neat rewards that can heavily help final dungeon and New Game Plus file later:
- Tear All Balm, Zeram Powders/Capsules (common/unlucky drops)
- Proxy/Emergency Puppets
- Onyx/Silver/Gold Gem

NOTE: In XSEED version, there is a bug with Mirror Quartz in Cassius battle causing softlock when he's using Armor Rend. Avoid to use this Quartz even if this one is extremely useful

Time Stamps:
2:20 Old Toughies
Basically buff and debuff strategy. Philip is vulnerable to Confuse that I didn't realize for this video. So for next chance, confuse him and leave him last alive.

21:20 Orguille Tank
Not really much strategy, except it is a tank so be careful with AoE

34:10 Duo Taito
This is where battles can go a bit difficult (but not as hard as last battle of course). This is the reason why Tita and Renne can't initially join this party, because S-Craft will oneshot them (you'll need revive Puppets). For the battle itself, Kilika is more dangerous than Walter even if he is an enforcer. So aim Kilika first and Walter alone is pretty much just Earth Guard status all day...

54:20 Cassius and Loewe
The most WTF pair for Sky Trilogy of course... Similar to Walter, Loewe is pushover once he's alone, so take out Cassius first. It's not an easy task of course, Schera is here for stealing turn reason.

1:11:00 The Almost Cheap Kill moment
I'll leave it here to take notes, even at decent level and your strategy goes well, you can die in Nightmare Difficulty with this cheap Armor Rend. I lose like 4 times with similar situation but now I can win with both luck and decision...

Half a year after the events of Trails in the Sky Second Chapter, Liberl has settled into peace once again—but even during peaceful times, there are many among the distinguished and fortunate burning with greed thanks to the influence of ancient artifacts. Most of the population remains unaware of their abuses of power, but to the most enigmatic order of the beloved Septian Church, the Gralsritter, snuffing out these would-be villains and claiming artifacts in their name is as everyday as professing one’s faith in the Goddess.

On the eve of another successfully completed mission, high-ranking member Father Kevin Graham is immediately assigned to retrieve one more artifact that rests beneath Grancel Cathedral. What’s more, even though this is a task he could easily complete on his own, he must reluctantly do so in partnership with his newest recruit, rookie Gralsritter and childhood friend Sister Ries Argent.

Thus begins the start of a routine mission that becomes anything but, delving into a new and mysterious realm that follows an unnaturally strict set of rules: Phantasma. Therein, the history of the Septian Church and the pasts of the many familiar faces who took up arms for the sake of Liberl’s future will be laid bare…and some may have been better off staying forever sealed behind closed doors.

Trails in the Sky 3rd: Tempest Pom Battle Nightmare

Oh man this fight SUCKED.
I wish I realized sooner that Tita could actually punch through its defense in Orbal Gear mode, I wasted so much time waiting for that STR or crit bonus turn.
Or even better, I could've just gone back to the Garden and get my 3 ultimate weapons and then come back and unload my S-Crafts on it, ugh.
