This guide details everything you need to know to unlock this additional comments in Tales of Zestiria:

View Records 1x Time

This shows how many times you’ve checked on your records. As you make progress, we’ll have various comments for you, so please drop in now and then!

View Records 10x Times

It is improper to expect something in return for achieving records. They exist purely for your private edification.

View Records 30x times

Don’t pop in here just to inflate this record. It won’t do anything cool, I promise. But hey, while you’re here, check out the more interesting crap below.

View Records 50x Time

Records will keep getting added here, so don’t forget to check up on them regularly.

000:00:00 Play Time

This is the amount of time you’ve been playing. Remember to sleep at least once every 36 hours!

030:00:01 Play Time

You have reached at least 30 hours of play time. I expect you are making substantial progress.

060:00:01 Play Time

Over 60 hours now! That’s beyond legit. Seriously, thanks.

100:00:00 Play Time

You’re obsessed. But I guess I’m OK with that.

000:00:00 Battle Time

This is the total amount of time spent in battle.

001:00:00 Battle Time

If worries over your battle time distract you enough that you’re losing battles, it defeats the purpose. Focus on survival first and foremost.

005:00:00 Battle Time

Well well, look who’s been busy on the battlefield. Hope you haven’t forgotten how to win quickly, though.

010:00:00 Battle Time

Battle after battle after battle. How’s that working out for you? Are you getting stronger?

000:00:00 Menu Time

This is the amount of time you’ve spent in menus. There’s a lot packed in here, so don’t be shy!

002:00:00 Menu Time

It’s a good idea to check the Skill Book regularly. It will help you master the generation and use of Bonus Skills.

010:00:00 Menu Time

Thinking about skills and fusion and all that makes my head spin, but if you can handle it, rock on.

030:00:00 Menu Time

I hope you haven’t been napping with a menu open or something.

1 Encounter

This is the number of times you’ve encountered enemies and dived headlong into battle! Racking up victories will also improve your equipment proficiency.

101 Encounter

You’ve already had over 100 encounters! Still, don’t let your guard down.


EncounterHuh. Over 1000 encounters! That’s a whole lot of violences. All the violences.


EncounterWell. Someone’s belligerent.

1 Enemy Species Discovered

This is the number of different enemies you’ve logged in the Enemy Book, found in the Library.

30 Enemy Species Discovered

I’ve come to the conclusion that the more you fight the same enemy, the better the skills on the equipment it drops. So don’t rush; take your time.

100 Enemy Species Discovered

It can really be nice to have equipment on hand with skills against particular enemy categories. The Luring talent could help. Just sayin’.

180 Enemy Species Discovered

There’s all sorts of hellions out there. In general, the ones that look similar became hellions under similar circumstances.

1 Consumable Item Types Discovered

This is the number of unique consumable items you’ve obtained.

10 Consumable Item Types Discovered

You’ve collected at least 10 different consumables. I can prepare all sorts of remedies now. Just say the word!

30 Consumable Item Types Discovered

I see you’ve collected at least 30 different consumables. Go on, don’t be stingy with ’em now. Use ’em up!

60 Consumable Item Types Discovered

You’ve found 60 consumable items. Mostly snacks, I notice. Still. Well done, I suppose.

5 Equipment Items Discovered

This is the number of unique equippable items you’ve found. Each one can have up to four skills, so no two items are the same! Except the ones that are.

30 Equipment Items Discovered

You’ve collected at least 30 different equippable items now. You should clean up your inventory by selling off old pieces or fusing them.

100 Equipment Items Discovered

Nice! 100 or more different pieces of equipment. You know, I feel like the drop rate falls if you’re carrying too much. Better sell off what you don’t need!

300 Equipment Items Discovered

That’s a frightening amount of equipment. How do you keep track of it all? Be sure not to let your inventory get too cluttered. Tidiness is part of being civilized.

1 Skit Played

That is the number of skits you’ve played. You can start a skit in certain places during your travels. They can also be triggered at inns.

50 Skit Played

You’ve played at least 50 skits now! There is nothing like a journey to bring people together.

150 Skit Played

Whoa, you’ve played over 150 skits? Neat. Wish we had a way to celebrate. A short comedic conversation about it with friends, or something. Oh well.

250 Skit Played

I see you’ve watched a whole bunch of skits. There are worse ways to waste one’s time, I guess.

1 Treasure Chest Discovered

This shows how many chests you’ve opened for the first time. I say that because some chests will mysteriously be restocked if you come back later.

30 Treasure Chest Discovered

If you want to build this number up, you ought to make good use of the Treasure Detection talent. It will notify you of nearby chests and herbs.

150 Treasure Chest Discovered

Loads of treasure, woohoo! You can increase the search radius if multiple people use Treasure Detection. Might actually make it harder sometimes, though.

300 Treasure Chest Discovered

Why are there chests scattered all over, anyway? …We’re not supposed to question it? I never agreed to that.

1 Normin Found

This is the number of times you’ve found and recruited normin. If you show a normin some equipment with a blank skill slot, they’ll offer to help!

10 Normin Found

I find this “normincarena” most curious. What on earth sort of dance is it supposed to be?

30 Normin Found

You’ve found at least 30 normin. There’s…about 50 in total, was it? Probably should dwell on what that implies about their breeding patterns.

50 Normin Found

…What are you looking at?

1 Hit Combo

Attacking enemies will interrupt and stagger them. Keep attacking before they can recover, and you can often defeat them without suffering counterattacks.

30 Hit Combo

Enemies have varying weights, affecting things such as their stagger time. Artes too have different qualities; ones with many hits tend to have short stagger time.

60 Hit Combo

You reached 60 hits! That’s super awesome and you’re my hero—but you can still go higher than that!

100 Hit Combo

Ooooh. 100 hits. Woooow.

1 Damage Dealt

This is the highest amount of damage you’ve dealt in a single blow. Artes with a lower hit count tend to do more damage per hit.

500 Damage Dealt

A stunned target will have a higher damage multiplier. When the enemy is stunned, it would be wise to employ your most effective combo.

5000 Damage Dealt

The battle actions Quick Banish and Retribution can help blow your damage into the stratosphere!
