Hello everyone and welcome to Zoelius' Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II Guide. This is Zennvirus (AKA Urizen Andrade)'s Intro. Why is some other dude making the intro of Zoel's guide, you ask? Well, since the man himself is busy going at this monstrous game of a monstrous franchise with the proverbial pair of pliers and blowtorch combo trying to compile one of his awesome and damn-good-looking guides of his, these here fellow gamer (me) who decided to join forces and Tie a Link of ARCUS for this Super Arrange Version...and has been thus tasked to make a simple paragraph describing what we are doing here (us guide makers and you, the user). Since one man would suffer greatly for the selfish act of making a guide (we WANT more selfishness like this), I pitched in doing reviews, Grammar-Nazing and analyzing and systematizing strategies ranging from the typical Kill-the-boss to economical shopping tips for financing a modest war...all so that when that nerve-racking date (TBA) somewhere on 2016's Fall arrives you: The Gamer, has a cool guide to help ye find your way to that hard-to-get Platinum Trophy or do a dreaded N3 Run (No NG+ Nightmare Run). And to those Amigos who (like Zoel and me) have a Japanese copy: We got you covered 2. Finally, to give Mr Zoelius time to do his thing, feel F.R.E.E. to choke my Gmail account with your contributions so that this guide is truly By the Gamer For the Gamer. Let it Rip! So here we are: Doin' Guide.

Disclaimer #1: This guide might contain spoilers of the original Trails of Cold Steel. If you have not finished Cold Steel and do not want to be spoil, avoid using this guide.
Disclaimer #2: This guide was originally written based on the Japanese version and was updated to match Xseed's official translation.
Disclaimer #3: This guide is text heavy, read bold letters for a quick way of navigating through this guide.
