Trivia

  • The three Shining Star Chips from the Treasure Trove at Jagron's Citadel do not require any progress to obtain besides gaining access to Temperantia and defeating Aeshma's Core. Their auto-attack stat is very high compared to most Core Chips available at this point of the game, and can trivialize later challenges.
