Shining Resonance Refrain Walkthrough

7. Opus 5 : Oratorio of Betrayal

As usual you'll save at Opus end, and a bunch of scenes will ensure. As you can guess from the scenes and the message afterward, Yuma will no longer berserk in dragon form, meaning he is now quite the force to be reckoned with. On top of being stronger, most of the dragon form attacks now have a big AoE, meaning you can slaughter groups of enemies super easily now. The only catch is that the moveset can be hard to use because he hovers, but once you get used to it, it's silly strong. More good news comes in Sonia getting her Armonic so she can be a part of BAND songs, so once we get the last character we can get the achievement. When you're ready it's time to head to Sharion Coast.

Origin Plains E > Fountain Valley SE > Buried Ruins NW > Howling Hole > Thirsting Wastes SE.

Sharion Coast - Moonlight Bay

Sharpfin
Buoyant Octo
Thunderbird
Charcoal
Goldenhead

Muscle Pumpkin
Sharion Water
Coral Reef

Check the northeast corner for a chest with the Dandyism trait for Jinas and Agnum. You want to fight the Cherub enemy until you get a Fallen tear for a quest. You also want to farm 3 Devilish Candles from the Charcoal enemies for the same reason. Now take the southeast exit.

Sharion Coast - Starlight Shore

Thunderbird
Sharpfin
Buoyant Octo
Grendel

Soothe Sage
Muscle Pumpkin
Sharion Water
Star Sand

You'll see the event right in front of you, it's a very easy fight against imperial fodder. After you've won check the chest on the north side of the big circle in the middle of the map. Go straight east to find a chest with an earth score. Now take the east exit.

Coral Caves - Drowsy Reefs

Buoyant Octo
Lizard Man/Lizard Leader
Blue Paste
Cold Lantern

Sharion Water
Mana Crystal
Soothe Sage
Muscle Pumpkin
Star Sand

You'll see this is split into 2 areas. There's a chest in the northwest corner of this area with Mana Mist. Get 2 Frigid Rocks from the Cold Lanterns. Head northeast to the next area.

Coral Caves - Seaform Cavern

Buoyant Octo
Lizard Man/Lizard Leader
Blue Paste
Cold Lantern

Soothe Sage
Muscle Pumpkin
Dragon Fruit

Head forward to a wall and follow it southeast, you'll come to a chest with a mana blessing. Now take the northwest exit.

Coral Caves - Tidal Cavern

Lizard Man
Cherub
Cold Lantern

Star Sand
Coral Reef
Cheer Carrot
Dragon Fruit

Before going to the event take the long way around. You'll run into a chest with a Speed Apple, now head to the northwest corner to find a chest with the "Romantic" trait. Now take the southwest exit to the northern part of Drowsy Reefs. Head east to find a chest with a Sea Score. Now head back to the Tidal Cavern area for an event, and a boss fight. Not much to say here, break him and then go to town on him. He doesn't do much damage. You'll get a Sea Score for winning. Return to Marga. Head to the castle for an event, you'll get Sonia's "Thinking of Father" trait. Use Lestin as the center of the BAND, this should get you an achievement if you've had everyone else be the center.

When you're ready head to the Ulde Desert.

Origin Plains E > Fountain Valley SE > Buried Ruins NE > Howling Hole NE > Thirsting Wastes NE > Silent Badlands NW.

Ulde Desert - Ancient Graveyard

Burning Peppermint
Sea Remnant
Ulde Scorpion

Ruby Crystal
Hell Hound
Grand Smasher

The event is in the first area, head there for a scene. Check the corner in the northeast area for the trait "Genius". The other chest is south of the northwest exit, it has a Bloody Claw. Now we have to move on. Return to Clavalle Crags - Silent Badlands and go northeast to the Lost Garden area.

Clavalle Crags - Lost Garden

Masked Goblin
Masked Hobgoblin
Masked Ranger
Flare Dragon
Masked Brave
Masked Range

Lavar Stone
Hihiirokane
Mana Fragment

Take the northeast exit again.

Mount Glaniel - Giant's Ridge

Blastershell
Simurgh
Chimera
Imperial enemies

Soothe Sage
Mountain Stone
Melted Snow
Logos Ice

After a short conversation you'll get the "Soul Radar" trait for Kirika. Grab the chest with a Magic Apple just west of the camp, and then grab the chest in the northwest corner with the trait "Malicious". Now take the northeast exit by the camp.

Logos Tundra - Blue Cavern

Simurgh
Cave Gosoku
Gargoyle
Light Crystal

Soothe Sage
Frozemary
Hammer Banana
Melted Snow

Follow the south wall to a chest with a Gigantic Fist, and then check the alcove south of the northwest exit. It has a chest with the "Idol" trait. Now go to the event for a scene, and Rinna will get the "Ruin Geek" trait. Now take the northeast exit. You'll have a scene and Agnum will get the "Dark Hero" trait. You'll also have a boss fight which is annoying as hell. You've faced it before, and he moves around a lot again. I got tired of trying to break him and just went into dragon form with Yuma and killed him that way. You can rely on Sonia, however it's quite frustrating with how much he moves. You'll get a Shining Score for winning. You'll have a bunch of scenes, and then another boss fight. This enemy is easily broken, so the fight can be finished with Sonia. You'll get a Black Horn for winning. You'll now need to hoof it back to Ulde Desert. Though you probably don't want to walk all the way back, the next part ends the Opus, so now is the time to clean up anything and everything you might want to do, like conversations and one last round of night events. Fernando had "Flowing Capriccio" which requires 1 Fallen Tear, which you should have from the Cherub in Sharion Coast - Moonlight Bay, but if not get one now. I only had one quest from Rapple called "Alluring Glimmer", which requires 3 Devilish Candle. You should have these as well, the Charcoal in the same area as the Cherub drop them.

Kirika : I still don't really know.
Sonia : We have to stay strong.
Rinna : That's what I thought.
Agnum : Okay, thanks.
Marion : She meant you don't like hot things.
Lestin : Resting.
Excella : Why don't we think of something together?
Jinas : Okay, I'll remember.

When you're ready, return to Ulde Desert and the event will be in the same spot. You'll have a boss fight with a new enemy that is pretty annoying. The first thing to note is that the boss electrifies the floor under him, so when you stay by him to attack you'll take damage. A small amount, but it adds up. The fight is otherwise the same as most. The only thing I have to pass on is that when you see it casting, back away unless he is close to being broken. Otherwise he'll do a big AoE attack that might kill you if you've taken enough damage from the electricity. Prelude to Spring would be a good idea here. As always using dragon form will lead to a simple victory. You'll get a Sky Score for winning.
