All I need for the Platinum is just 3 Benisons:

- Astels Mercy
- Marigans Mania
- Shaams Adjudication

For hours I've been trying to get these to trigger based on their spawn conditions and no dice. An ideal battle would be good for these too, but I've just been grinding in the Megdasse caves and I feel like I may just need a better place

**Scratch Shaam's Adjudication. Somehow didn't see that I had that.

While I don't know the specifics of how benison chances are calculated, each encounter has a "preferred" benison that starts with a higher chance to trigger absent any other modifiers (roles or benisons assigned to your current formation, etc.)

You can check the "Scene Data" tab here:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1uBV46LMR5gP49fqOX5sYn69msNg8Q5pJ31Wv7vTeVZ0/

You're specifically looking for DivineDamage3 (Marigan's Mania) or DivineHeal2 (Astel's Mercy) in column AS.

(The challenge then is to match up the encounters from the spreadsheet to their actual node in the game, lol.)

Oh wow, this is super helpful haha. Where can I match up the encounter to the actual node?

Well, like I said, that's the challenge. I'm not aware that anyone's mapped them out. Probably half or more of any battles you're interested in will be boss battles or other one-time encounters (from sidequests, etc.)

You do have some clues though. The experience value (column AR) will indicate the difficulty (12 = easy, 15 = normal, 18 = hard).

E will tell you the element of the node. MOKU = natura, KA = ignus, DO = terra, KIN = aes, SUI = unda, ALL = prism. (AV will give you the element of flux you receive from the battle. Except for prism nodes this should match)

K will tell you if it's a single battle (ENC_ONCE) or an encounter chain (ENC_WAVE.)

Got it.

Thanks so much, dude; got the platinum the other day. Can't believe these were tied to specific encounters.

I loved this game dearly, but man are some of the finer mechanics unbelievably frustrating
