Do Some Business

Fully upgrade a punch card.
Loot Some Treasures
Refer to the IGN guide for the locations of treasure chests in each chapter.

Loot 10 treasure chests.
Loot all treasure chests.
Learn Battle Arts
Use a recovery item in battle.
Scrap three enemies with a single card.
Use Copernica’s Flame Wave card at any groups of 3 or more monsters. One easy method is during the Teras Koloss boss fight. When the tree boss summons 3 twigs, use the AOE skill to one shot all of them. They are all weak to fire attacks.
Spend 10 Steam Pressure on a single card.
Use strike and upgrade cards to build up steam pressure (SP), then spend all SP on any X skill cards (e.g. Orik’s Cyclone Slash, Galleo’s Overcharge).
Heal a hero from less than 5% health to full with a single card.
Key card: Galleo’s Overcharge + Miracle Worker. Try to lower one of your hero’s health to <5%, while building up 5+ SP, then use Overcharge to heal the hero while protecting him/her with Damage Shield from Copernica. Another method is letting the enemy kill one of your team member in one fight. Then do the above method in the second fight, since 1 health will definitely <5%.
Play six cards from your hand in one turn.
You need 4 things here: Orik’s Bushido card, Inspiring Grace card, any Orik’s weapon with hero chain card Haste, and equip him accessory Executioner’s Hood. Try to redraw cards until you got both cards in your hand and any other one Orik’s card, while try to lower one enemy’s health so that Orik can kill the enemy in one turn. Then perform the kill and hope RNG favours you.
Inflict Burn, Bleed, Poison and Despair on the same enemy.
Raise a hero’s Strength bonus to +7 grades or more.
Deal 20,000 or more damage with a single hit.
Debuff of defense on enemy + buff of offence on hero + offensive X skill with 10 SP.
Have 12 instances of negative status conditions affecting foes at the same time.
Defeat a certain boss before it can use Hell’s Tokamak.
Kill the last boss Mechathiranos in one turn after teleport to the final phase, or use Flinch to drop the card (need conform)?
