Before starting your game, check out the Road Map on the main site for the proper order of playing so as not to miss any achievements.
This guide is now complete! Huge thanks to Ray5555 on the forums here and Kiryn Silverwing on Gamefaqs. :)
Note #1: The game will REQUIRE two plays. Some of the musical scores are not available until the second play, and some of the side-quests are also not available until the second play. It's not a quick 1000, but it's also not a very hard 1000. The second play through you get to keep your Party Level (but not character level), your Score Pieces, and the Hero's Crest. However, enemies will have 2x health and 1.5x attack/defense, so getting as much as you can in the first play will make your second play easier and shorter.
Note #2: All of the "Party Level" and "Chapter" achievements unlock once you are back in control of your party. There are a lot of cinematics in this game, so you might go through 2-3 before the achievements actually unlock. These achievements can not be missed, unless stated otherwise.

Note #5: If you have missed any score pieces from the list above, then the numbers I am using below will not be correct. The score pieces are not numbered in the game (you just have to count from top to bottom), so I would suggest following that guide above closely so you can work on these at the same time.
http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/eu/Xc/0I...fn--PlYQ==.jpg EZI Worshipper
All the items related to EZI have been collected. 321 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images...n_External.gif

Chapel EZI - Play Score Piece 13 for Desolate Saburo in the Noise Dunes.
I better guide on the EZI would be really helpful since I want to get most of the achievements on this for this game before Halo 3.
Also, a link to the original guide would be pretty cool also.
Thanks a lot for this. I ended up getting the strategy guide, and it's just confusing as hell. It didn't seperate the first playthough from the second, so it's been telling me all these score pieces are all over the place when they arn't.. wasted hours spamming A in so many areas.. This clears it up. I just KNOW I'm going to end up missing something or messing one up so I won't bother though, I don't think.
If I do, I'll attempt to get everything on the second playthough, and this will help a lot. Thanks
Quick question about the sheet music for anyone that knows. Say you pick them up out of order (i.e. you pick up #4 before #3) and then you pick up #3 later, does the game put them in the proper order in your inventory or in the order you pick them up? I'm just curious because I just got to Chapter 5 today and am missing a good portion of the music and I'm just curious if I should give up on the ones I missed this play through.
Good questions, Graf.. I think it will order them, but I have got them all in order, so I can't be sure. Maybe Kaens knows, he should be lurking around here somewhere...
score piece 20
I am trying to get score piece 20 in Baroque City Chapter 5. When I go to the wine cellar, the guy there says the same stuff he did earlier, and no option to start a fight. Is there something that needs to be done first? or is it possible this actually doesnt occur til chapter 6? help please!
Score Piece 20 can only be received by selecting the third option from him, which should start a fight with that pirate lady from before whose name I can't remember. After the fight that guy is gone and you can search the barrels.
I don't think you can do that fight unless you've fought her in the Wah Lava Cave though, so you might need to do that on your second play, because I'm not sure you can backtrack to that spot.
Is there any reason to try and get any of the non-story achievements in the first play through?
Absolutely! The second playthrough the enemies have 2x health and 1.5 att/def ratings, so it is a bit harder. I would suggest getting everything possible in the first play.
Does anyone happen to know how many EZI pieces there are total?
21, I'm working on them all. That post by Ray5555 has them all, but they don't have locations or anything. I edited his post with numbers to say what play you'll find them in.
Pants do you know how many EZI pieces you can get on the first playthrough?
Well, I'm on Chapter 6 and I have eight so far. There might be a few more, I'll keep updating the list when I find something.
Edit: Just found my ninth one at the beginning of Chapter 7.
I didn't want to make a new thread so I'll ask here....
What is Burst and what does it do?
EDiT: What chapter am I able to get Rainbow Ezi: Elegy of the moon shop, got to search for it. (1)?
Say I miss some score pieces and EZI's on my first play through. Will they still be there on the second playthrough?
Houseplant, I updated the guide, that one is in Chapter 7. I got nine EZI items on my first play (finally finished tonight), so I'm assuming that's all you can get unless I missed something... I also don't remember anything called Burst.
army, everything will still be there the second go, you don't have to worry about missing anything. (Welcome to the site, by the way!)
do you keep EZI items from the first to the second playthrough?
Yes, score pieces and EZI items are all kept, as well as a few "valuable" items like the Hero's Crest and Heart Pendant, maybe some others.
Well I think Burst is a status effect that is acquired from accessories and weapons, but IDK what it does.
Don't know if anyone else saw this, but I had to play Score Piece 12 for the EZI Pajamas.
Nice guide Pants. I've been following this thread past few days and it's looking great.
What we need is a good EZI guide, showing what towns to go to, what number score to use and the npc to use it at. The EZI guide listed so far is not bad, but still should have a little bit more info, it's sorta hard to understand.
Thanks, keep up the great work.
Edit: Also, for the EZI achievmeent, do you need to have all the EZI in your inventory for it to complete? Or do you just need to acquire it, but can use it or sell it and still get the achievement?
go ahead and delete my posts if you want to, as long as you give me credit. All is fine then
Here is the list for the EZI achievement I will tell you were and how to get them,but you can re-order them for your achievement guide ok?
Well here they are
EZI scarf: Located on the pirate ship that Polka, and gang board. Play a session with Captive conga. You need to use Score piece 4 to get this item.

that is it. I am pretty sure that is all of them. I even gave the locations of all the items. Please note some of these are second playthrough only, or can be got only at a specific time.
TPP, you say Note #5: Your EZI items disappear going to your second play, so don't even worry about them until then. at the top, but in another post you say that they transfer over. So which is it? @_@
For the person that asked about Burst, I believe it increases your attack at the cost of reducing your defence.
Hmm, so don't worry about EZI items until the 2nd round?
