    I tried to make this as simple as possible, here is a guide that will tell you ALL the possible way around, with all MC combination locations, you need to be the host for it to count if you play online(i know cause i had to do some again cause some i wasnt host and the achievement pops as soon as your in the last room you need so if you do 2nd,3rd or 4th runs, you can die on next room to be on safe side, thats what i did).
    I even made a map for the stages that are in straight line,no detour.
    For the collectible, they will be shown this way, top to bottom/left to right, for exemple, 9/1 means from top to bottom is the ninth, from left to right its the 1st and you dont need to be the host for those to count.
    i will state the fastest route for the stage you need multiple runs so you dont end up doing it too many times

    And just one thing to mention, this WILL be time consuming.

    u = up
    d = down
    uu = up up
    dd = down down
    SR = secret room
    yellow square = room with MC combination
    white square = room with nothing to find
    debris = stuff in your way you need to clear(with 10 pts in your POW plus the MC for attack up you should be fine, i was using hitori and it was fine that way)

    EarthboundXHmm, I've been to every area, but it hasn't popped. Are you sure it counts if you die and don't finish a level?

    I have all the MCs, so I can't think of any place I could have missed. I checked off each and every area as I went through them.
    Posted by EarthboundX on 09 Oct 17 at 09:26
    EarthboundXOK, got it to pop. Seems I missed either 4.5u or 4.6u in Stage 4. I must have died before reaching one of those, and assuming I got them I just decided to start the second run of the stage, because I'd get both MCs that way and save some time for a full first run. It popped right after finishing those, didn't even need to save.

    Either way it's done, great guide!

    ForcefulOliver2Well, that sucks, I don't know why but the map doesn't seem to appear anymore, sorry about it, I will leave the guide as it is and won't make new maps, it was a real pain first time I made them, don't want to go through that again.

    I would repost this excellent guide here, but this fellow does deserve absolute full-credit, and it is very well-formatted, and if you happen to not have this achievement pop when you expect it to, it's near impossible to tell which area you didn't visit unless there was a MC there you didn't collect.

    Follow this guide's directions for visiting all areas from top to bottom- he re-lists them if you have to start the stage over to hit all the areas. I would open up the level/split-path/secret area guide on one tab/window and the MC location by area in another tab and constantly cross-reference them as you progress through with your first character (I'd recommend Seyfert and dropping points into POW until you can kill the yellow exploding enemies with a regular attack without Frezo's atk increase MC on easy, but you'll need plenty of HP and a decent MP pool to survive the laser cannon heavy stages. Use Niltor's Chorus or others in that line to deal with those- they are are practically mandatory to survive(these are the "freeze all enemies for x seconds" MC's).

    By level 60 my seyfert was well-balanced to handle most stuff with about +19hp, +16mp, and +20pow, although early on I was dropping more into pow, and later more into mp, because you end up needing to use Niltor's freeze MC's a lot, and you are going to get tagged by lasers and they hurt like hell, so you are going to be casting Ceno's heal MC's quite a lot too. Stick to the 2p Ceno's MC once you get it, unless you're playing Hitori and have MP to spare- it's more efficient than the 3p.

    Once you get through the game on your first playthrough with Seyfert (which most people recommend), you should have collected all the MC's and gotten Moon Traveler achievement for visiting all areas. And now if you are going for 100% completion you can rush through the stages with the other characters and only go out of your way to pick up particularly useful MC's like Niltor's etc. The first run, making sure you hit alllllll the gobs of side-paths and secret areas will take quite a while, but if you don't follow the guide posted above to the letter, you are going to be left wondering which area you missed and there is usually no way to tell at all what that area might have been.

    DROGTURISTYou post awesome tips for this game, thanks! Just wanted to add a little detail I didn't see noted anywhere; you don't have to actually beat a level for the area visit to count.
    Posted by DROGTURIST on 24 Oct 11 at 08:41
    rastal66from what DROGTURIST posted I believe so, but personally I finished out the stages if I could just to make sure. Also, if you are going for 100% completion the avg lvl achievement takes quite a bit of grinding anyway.
