Trust Levels and All Endings
Written by Cho
Antiquia Lost has two global endings - a Normal End, and a True End.
Each ending also has optional "special" scenes.
The only thing that affects which ending you'll get is Bine's companion's Trust Level.
Normal End "Special Endings"
There are actually 3 Normal End "special ending" scenes - one for each companion.
After you've achieved one of the Normal Ends at the first time, you'll be prompted to save your data, and then return to the title screen. If you continue from this point, the game will put you back in The Heliotrope, just before the final boss battle.
Now you have to fight the final boss again, and after the battle is over choose the option: "Cut Alma down." (Option "Don't cut Alma down." will skip! Normal Ends and continue the storyline).
Now after the end credits, you'll recieve one of the Normal Ends.
In order to unlock a specific ending, companion must have a Trust Level of 85 or higher. Also, it must be higher than the other companions.
But what happens if some companions have equal highest Trust? Then the ending would be chosen according to next priority:
Lunaria -> Jade -> Safira.
If all Trust Levels would be <85, you'll receive usual Normal Ending with no additional scene after credits.
After returning to the title (do NOT save the game), reload your data, modify the girls Trust Levels, and then repeat the process.
True End "Special Endings"
There are actually 3 True End "special ending" scenes and 1 "Alma Ending" scene.
In order to unlock a specific ending, character must have a Trust Level of 85 or higher. Also, it must be higher than the other companions.
But what happens if some characters have equal highest Trust? Then the ending would be chosen according to next priority:
Lunaria -> Jade -> Safira -> Alma.
If all Trust Levels would be <85, you'll receive usual True Ending with no additional scene after credits.
Follow the same process you used to unlock each of the Normal special endings, in order to unlock all True special endings.
Tip: If you want to see all endings, I recommend to start with Alma (or save her for a final titbit), because she's not always available for interaction like your companions (for more details see Important Tip below).
How to Raise (and Lower) Trust Levels
As the story progress there will be special free time events, during which Bine may talk with different party members to raise/decrease his Trust Level with each of them.
There is also a way to manipulate Trust Level with items (Secret Present, Luxury Mud Set, Ancient Language Book, Canned Food). Some of them you'll find during storyplay. All of them except Secret Present you may buy for Guild Coins (Secret Present may be bought only for Alchemy Stones (IAP)).
Important Tip: After Alma opens portal to Carbonado, you may interact with her/him. She/He will accept any of trust level items. It's the only known way to modify her/his Trust Level. You may notice that you can not see her actual Trust in numbers. But if, after interaction, Alma says not her standart phrase, but phrase which ends like "hehehe. It's a secret...!" that means that her Trust Level is 85 or higher and you're ready for her ending.
Note: Usually Trust Levels affects only Endings, but in this game companions Trust Levels have influence on gameplay as well. You must increase companions Trust to help them break some cell doors (Lunaria), break big rocks (Jade), sneak into small gaps (Safira).
So, the items affects the Trust Level as follows:
|Luxury Mud Set||+5||-5||+1||+|
|Ancient Language Book||+1||+5||-5||--|
*:(Since we can not see Alma's actual Trust, we can not be 100% sure about next info)
Alma starting Trust Lever = 60;
"+" means +5;
"-" means -5;
"--" means -10.
