There are some great treasure lists out there, which I recommend you print out and use. It can get confusing if you're not keeping track, since you must backtrack for many chests. The list I recommend is found here:

Something that helps when hunting chests is Lymle's Treasure Sense skill, which can be taught to her with the corresponding Skill Manual found in the Alanaire Citadel on Lemuris. This causes all treasure chests to appear on your mini map, and will show you if you've opened them or not. For an even easier time, press start to view the larger map whenever you need it to scan a large area of the map for chests.

There are many missable chests throughout the early parts of the game. The list I linked to will tell you these chests, but for a quick reference, I've listed them here:

- The chest in Lymle's house in Triom must be opened before completing the Celestial Ship
- Fill your Fire Ring at Woodley before leaving for the Cardianon Mothership
- All chests on the Cardianon Mothership in all sections must be opened before you leave
- Fill your Fire Ring again before heading towards Earth
- Open all the chests on Earth before leaving

The last few chests you'll open, if you've been diligent, will probably be the fire chests that must be doused with the Water Ring (gotten from the bottom floor of the Cave of Seven Stars). You don't have to beat Gabriel at all either, you can just nab the chests near him. Also, no treasures in the Wandering Dungeon go towards this achievement.

You can keep track of your chest % completion on the ship's Memory Plate furnishing, if you've made and installed one.

Also keep in mind that it takes a bit for the achievement to unlock (about 10 seconds), so don't panic if it doesn't appear right away.
