If you're having problems with the clocks, please go here: or on your phone.(Thanks to Kennansoft for the better link)

If you're looking for a list of Wild Artifacts, Kennansoft has also listed them and linked a YouTube video in the comments. I won't add it to the solution as it isn't part of the achievement, but it is still pretty helpful.

If you have any suggestions for improvement, please post them in the comments and I will do my best to update the solution to be more helpful. I will continue to add videos as I find them.

I'm going to make a text guide to go along with the videos from HsyperSakuraRevenge, although he's missing a few areas still. All videos are from his YouTube page, and a playlist of all the videos can be found here: He's also got a full walkthrough of the game, if you're interested in that.

Also, as you're playing take note that the fragment name will unlock once you receive the quest. Even better is that you will get a general location by looking at the picture provided if you select that fragment name.

All fragments listed as "Story Related" cannot be missed.

When you first enter the area for the first time, walk forward until you are free to move faster. Turn around, jump back up onto the cliff and look behind the tree. If you missed that...

Toss the little guy for your reward.

Laplacian Board
On the southwest end of the beach (almost directly below Chocolina on the map) you'll find this one hidden near some wreckage. It's pretty hard to spot. Look at the video if you're having problems finding it (Fragment 3, starts at 1:40) Moogle Hunt / Throw.

Anima Miseria
Unio Mystica Required
Quest: Find a Silver Petal
After defeating Atlas and talking to Alyssa, you'll find a guy named Jed right next to her. He wants you to find a flower for his niece. Only problem is, it's not snowing!! Lucky for him, we're awesome time travelers, right? So head to 300AF where it is snowing, and grab the flower from the back of the graveyard. Not really sure why we had to go 300 years into the future instead of just a few months (or let him get his own frickin flower in a couple months?!?) but who am I to judge?

Unio Mystica
Quest: Find the Lost Capsules.
Near the gate in the back of the ruins, you'll find a guard wandering around who looks different than the rest. He's the Captain, which means he gets cooler armor. He'll tell you they've lost some experimental drugs *coughsteriodscough* and they need to find them.
The first one will be right next to the open walkway towards the graveyard. The second is underground, almost directly underneath this.

Ars Symphonica
Quest: Find the notes!
Poor Cordelia can't get her filing cabinet open. Be a good little boy and open it for her, would you kindly? What's that you say? The filing cabinet isn't stuck shut, it's STUCK IN TIME? Yeah. Moogle Hunt that box in the covered area back into existence.

Graviton Core Beta

Ruthenium Ring
Quest: Pacify the Mercenary
You'll find a guy named Walter in the area that you can't explore in any other timeline. He'll ask you to talk to a really crazy looking guy nearby who is upset for whatever reason. You'll get a few live triggers, just say calming things. Goose frabah.

Rhodium Ring
Palladium, Osmium, & Ruthenium Rings Required.
Quest: Retrieve the Device
Ronan, over in the Graveyard (same place as you defeated Atlas) will ask you to go find some device he lost. Pesky Paradoxes always stealing my Coco Puffs....Anyway, you'll find it in 300AF in the same graveyard. It's a carbuncle doll.

Some chick named Pat has lost her marbles. Please find them in the underground, north as you can.

Osmium Ring
Improved Moogle Hunt Required
Quest: Find the Assistant
So Professor Questgiver has lost his assistant. Disappeared out of thin air. Crazy how these things keep happening, right? He's been sucked up by a Paradox, and you need to Moogle Hunt him out underground. He's in the underground area just south of where you receive this quest.

Adamantite Ring
Requires All Rings from Bresha 100 & 300.
Quest: Find the Passwords
You'll find Porter underground, and he's the start of two fragment quests here. This first one will require some traveling. Handy enough, though, this will also get you two other fragments from other timelines. (Special thanks to Jyejitsu for confirming how exactly to make this quest available.)

Password 1: You will need to head off to Yaschas Massif 100AF and look for a girl named Uma in the dig site by the Oracle Drive. She'll give you Thorn's Information, which you need to take to Yaschas Massif 110AF. Here you'll find a guy down by where you can find a gate in other timelines. You might have seen him before, he's the one who complains he can't remember his name. For an exact location, view 10:15 on the video.

Password 2: Head to Bresha Ruins 300AF. Find the Government Agent near the device you used earlier to weaken Atlas. Resolve the Anomaly, and the password is yours. If you need help, there's a solution for it starting at 13:05

  • Bresha Ruins: 300 AF Total Fragments: 4

Control Device Password 2
Requires Adamantite Ring Quest
In order to start this, you'll need to talk to Porter in 100AF. After you've done this, find the Government Agent near the device you used earlier to weaken Atlas. Resolve the Anomaly, and the password is yours. If you need help, there's a solution for it starting at 10:25 in this video.

Iridium Ring
Quest: Talk to a friend
In the graveyard that appears after defeating Atlas, you'll find a guy who's phased out of time. Use Moogle Hunt to pull him into the right timeline, and he'll ask you to go talk to his friend. You can find his friend underground, near where you can find a gate in 5AF. His friend will say he'll only help you if you can make him laugh. His sense of humor is pretty bad, so just tell him lots of punny jokes....GET IT? HA HA!!! Not punny. (Sorry....)

Platinum Ring
Quest: Retrieve the Recording Device
As you walk up the stairs when you first enter the area, you'll be able to talk to a guy named Jonah who wants you to find a device somewhere in the ruins. Go down to where Chocolina is, head west, and there you'll moogle hunt your item.

Mythril Ring
Quest: Get the report
Close to Lex's friend you'll find a guy named Thurston wants you to find out if he can blow up the ruins. He's hired a guy to do a survey to make sure it's safe. Head back to the gate you entered the area from, talk to the Commander (near the top of the stairs) and he'll give you the results of said survey. Bring this back to Thurston and claim your reward.

  • Yaschas Massif: 010 AF Total Fragments: 5

Aloeidai Fragment
Story Related. Defeat Aloeidai.

Pathos Jewel
In the dig site, you'll see the dormant fal'Cie. Run up to the top of the structure, and you'll see it phased out near her face. Use moogle hunt to reveal it, then toss the little guy at it to retrieve it.

Misery's Bead
Quest: Obtain a Behemoth Fang
You probably won't be able to do this when you first come to this area. I did it just after finishing the Tower in 200AF. Anyway, Brenda (right next to Chocolina, at the exit of the dig site) asks you to find her a behemoth fang. You know what to do!

Amur's Sphere
Quest: Find a battery
You'll find Cole at the bottom of the stairs leading up to the Oracle Drive area. He wants some old defunct battery nobody uses any more. Go to 01XAF and you'll find it at the dig site, behind some containers near where you'd find the gate in 110AF. Exact location in the video at 7:00.

Innocence's Sacred Sphere
Quest: Retrieve the watch
At the bottom of the dig site, near a treasure sphere you'll find Shannon. She's lost her watch, and wants you to find it! It's too dark to see now, she says, so let's head to 110AF and look there. Go to the area where you find Chocolina out in the dark in 010AF and look down the ravine. Moogle Throw will get you your prize. Exact location in the video at 9:30.

  • Yaschas Massif: 01X AF Total Fragments: 4

Gorgyra Fragment
Quest: Defeat the Cie'th
Duncan in the dig site wants you to put a Cie'th out of its misery. This one is a tough battle, so good luck. Even with two lvl 99 classes and one more at 50, I still can't do it. You'll find the Cie'th down at the very SouthWest area of the map.

Orb of Clotho
Quest: Replace the tablet
Marlow in the dig site (near the pillars) broke his irreplaceable tablet!! Oh noes!! Go find him a new one. You know, before he breaks that one too. It'll be in 10AF, in a treasure box. Run directly south from Chocolina and you'll see it, out in the dark. Scary! While you're here, however, look at the next fragment. Grab that fruit while you're at it.

Sword of Lachesis
Requires Orb of Clotho
Quest: Retrieve the fruit of Fenrir
Bridget, on that cliff that is almost impossible to get to (you need a chocobo) wants you to get a flower. As if getting to her alone isn't enough for a reward! Anyway, she says it only shows up during the eclipse. So, head to the eclipse! That's 10AF, without the X. Near where she's standing (except in 10AF) you'll see a sphere. You can either toss your moogle (that sounds like it should be a dance...) or jump up there with a chocobo. Either way, get the fruit from the box and bring it back to her.

Mirror of Atropos
Quest: Grab the stars!
Lester in the dig site saw some crazy meteors falling down the other day. Why not go find them? Skip to 9:05 on the video.
Lots of running involved.
Emerald Crystal: In the pit directly next to the gate out in the wilds, toss mog for a treasure box. (9:20)
Onyx Crystal: Look on your map for a little red stop sign in the SouthWest area. Directly next to that, on a slab of rock, you'll find this one if you use moogle hunt. (9:35)
Ivory Crystal: Near another gate, this time closer to the dig site, you'll find this box at the bottom of the cliff you have to jump down (very bottom). Moogle hunt, it's a little hidden almost right against the bottom of the cliff.(10:00)

  • Yaschas Massif: 100 AF Total Fragments: 7

Numbers continued from 110AF.
**Note: To make things faster, as soon as you enter the area head to where the oracle drive is. In the back, you'll see a hidden cube. This is for Orb 6. After you talk to Orb 5, throw mog at the cube underneath the structure around the dormant Fal'Cie for Orb 8's item. As you get to the top and leave the dig site, you'll notice another hidden cube on a slab you must jump on for Orb 7's item. Now as you talk to each of these orbs, just speak to them a second time and the quest will end all fastlike.**

7)Schwertleite's Flower
Quest: Find the Comm Device.
You'll find this orb far to the SouthEast end of the map, near the wild gate. Make sure you grab the item before heading here to save yourself some running. It's just outside of the dig site, a little past Chocolina on the right on a slab of rock you must jump on and moogle hunt to grab. Also while you're here (at the orb, not where you find the comm device :P), resolve the anomaly for the Book of Valhalla.

5) Helmwige's Nightshade
Quest: Get the Picture Frame
Talk to the crimson orb found in the central area of the dig site, below where you would find the oracle drive. He asks you to find a picture frame. Head south and turn left when you see Orb 6. Follow the path to that little area all the way east, and at the end you'll find a hidden cube. Hunt your Moogle.

6) Siegrune's Spiritbloom
Quest: Help Lambert
You should've seen this orb when you were going to grab the item for Orb 5. Some "kid(Read: Crimson Orb)" named Lambert wants your help. He feels like he got screwed out of his potential, or something. Anyway, he wants you to find Hope's Blossom. Head to the area with the Oracle Drive (if you didn't already) and grab the hidden cube from the back with Moogle Hunt.

8) Rossweisse Skyblossom
Quest: Find the Tablet
Near where you found the watch in 110AF or Chocolina out in the dark in 10AF.

9) Book of Shambala
Resolve the anomaly. Appears after you've done the last orb in this area, and is marked on your map in the dig site.

Book of Valhalla
In the SouthEast section, right next to a gate, resolve the anomaly.

Graviton Core Epsilon
South of Orb 8, to the west of the long I (ish) shaped hole in the map across from a leaning pillar. Select the fragment name for a picture / idea of where to look. Like all the other cores, it's hidden, so use moogle hunt. Exact location at 10:10.

  • Yaschas Massif: 110 AF Total Fragments: 6

Control Device Password 1
Requires Adamantite Ring Quest
First, you have to talk to Porter in Bresha Ruins 100AF. Then, you will need to head off to Yaschas Massif 100AF and look for a girl named Uma in the dig site by the Oracle Drive. She'll give you Thorn's Information, which you need to take to Yaschas Massif 110AF. Here you'll find a guy down by where you can find a gate in other timelines. You might have seen him before, he's the one who complains he can't remember his name. For an exact location, view 10:15 on the video.

In order to reduce confusion, I've numbered the crimson orbs in the order they must be completed.
10) Ugallu Fragment
Quest: Defeat the Ancient Evil!
You'll find this orb right outside of the dig site after completing fragment 9 in this list. Yeul wants you to go hunt down this nasty she sealed away. It will be marked on your map.

2) Waltraute's Flower
Quest: Help the Technician
So this guy was in charge of the spotlights. Then he got sucked up into a time vortex. Now he leaps from person to person...wait, wrong thing. Anyway, run up to the oracle drive, moogle hunt for the box. Open the box, get on a chocobo, head to the little cliff area (where you find the Fruit of Fenrir and all that) to find the technician. Tell him how much he sucks, when he asks how you know (other than that it's OBVIOUS!!!) tell him the manual says he sucks.

1) Gerhilde's Blossom
Quest: Find Missing Sister
As soon as you enter the area, you'll see a crimson orb. Talk to it, and it'll be all sad that she got in a fight and then her sister died before she could apologize. You'll find her sister if you go directly south out of the dig site, and use your moogle hunt when you get to the fork and see her wandering around.

3) Ortlinde's Bloom
Quest: Find terrorist proof!!
At the very top of the dig site (above the oracle drive) is another crimson orb of emo angst. This one wants you to prove that terrorists set us up the bomb. You'll find your proof in a square box near the cliff mentioned above. 7:30 on the video.

4) Book of Avalon
In the SouthWest corner of the map (should be marked), this will appear after completing Ortlinde's Bloom. Resolve the anomaly.

Chocochick Down
Search the left counter in the Chocobo Racing building for a chocobo chick.

Lucky Coin
Win 7,777 coins from the slot machines. Get that rubber band out!!
The quickest way I found to get this was I rubber-banded my auto-play button down, and left the sound on. Then I went over to the PC and started doing stuff (editing this guide, actually ;) and listened for it to go into Victory Mode. Once it was in Victory Mode, I took over manually because auto-play actually lowers your chance of hitting the Jack Pot. Doing it this way I managed to get into Super Victory Mode pretty quick, and all told spent about 15 or 20 minutes getting this fragment.

Priceless Gift
Purchase "Just 1 Gil" for 9,800 Casino Coins (7,350 with Bargain Hunter)

  • Acadamia: 400 AF Total Fragments: 13

Academic Rank: Paradox Professor
100% exploration on all maps. Turn them in, and you get this.
For some help, please go here:

**All of the "Travel Guide" fragments in Academia are earned by talking to the scientist and giving her completed maps of the various areas.**
You can check your exploration progress two ways.
1) In your inventory, look for "A Map Of...." and select it. This will tell you how much you have explored.
2) In the area in question, hit X and look at the bottom, next to the footprint.
It is important to note that some areas have multiple maps for different timelines. I have grouped together the required areas below each fragment, and listed them in italics and underline if they have separate maps. I've also put a star next to maps of each category where it is suggested you do the exploring (if necessary.)

Near the gate you exit from after defeating the main Cie'th the first time, you will see Chocolina. Next to her is a red escalator. It's at the bottom of this section. I got down by jumping and moving forward, but it might be possible to reverse the direction of the walkway. I didn't bother trying, so if somebody figures it out please comment that in and I'll update this.

  • Acadamia: 4XX AF Total Fragments: 11

Academic Rank: Monster Professor
Quest: Fill up your bestiary. 100%. Have fun with that....
You will find Dr. M inside the Academy in the large open room. He walks around, but he's not hard to find. Look for the one guy (not the receptionist, that's a girl!) with a "...." over his head.

For a list of every monster, and where to find them, please see here: (Thanks to RK1989 for the link)

Just a couple notes on this one:
First, to save yourself time, when you first fight Proto Fal'cie Adam, make sure you choose all the wrong answers FIRST. In other words, choose "Yell at Hope" last, because each version of Adam counts as a different entry.

Second, it is possible to lose the fight to Caius in Dying World when you're alone as Noel. Make sure you don't, or you may have to repeat this part in order for the entry to count.

And Last, you don't actually have to have 100% of the data in the bestiary, you just have to have one entry for each monster.

Answers to ALL trivia questions, both the Captain's as well as the machines:

Quiz Rank: Private
Received as soon as you have talked to and correctly answered Captain Crazy's Confounding Quiz of Tediousness. The first time you look for him, he will be inside the academy building. After that, his appearance is random. Here's a handy map of where you can look for Captain Quizbowl! (aka Captain Cryptic)

Quiz Rank: Sergeant
Find him a second time.

Quiz Rank: Lieutenant
Find him a third time. Don't mess up the answers, or you'll have to hunt him down again! (this applies all 4 times...)

Quiz Rank: Colonel
And again...

Quiz Rank: General
You're done! Yay!

Stoic Virtue
Perfect score from the Brain Blast game inside the academy building.

Epicurean Song
Perfect score from the Brain Blast game in the shopping district.

Lyceum Knowledge

Story Related. Defeat the Proto Fal'Cie.

On the 50th floor, there is a room with 3 terminals. Numbered in the order you get the quests:

A) Idea Circuit
Go into the room with Chocolina, and look up at one of the top corners of the room in some shadows. It's in a box.

B) Enigma Codex
Go out into the middle ring. Move until you are between the first and second buildings, and look down. A carefully placed moogle throw will grab the box. It's pretty far down.

C) Difference Engine
This one is a pain to get. Go down to the 49th floor, and all the way to the north end of the middle ring. Look down at the bottom of the map until you see the same square box that you have seen a million times when looking for the previous two fragments and anything else you need to throw your moogle at. Then move until you are facing that pillar. Aim your moogle so that the line arcs and lines up with the middle of the pillar where the box referenced in the last sentence is. You won't be able to see it (the box), but if you're lucky you'll get the quest item. It took me about 20 minutes to figure this out, AFTER I found the stupid box. =/
