I am Setsuna Loot System FAQ

How does the loot system work!?
If you don’t know –  enemies drop items depending on HOW you killed them. To be more specific, it’s the nature of the KILLING BLOW, not the entire killing process.


You can trigger multiple kill-types with one killing blow! I’ll talk about the more “common” problems in this general FAQ portion.

What enemies drop what?
Enemies of the same TYPE drop almost the same items, mostly with the exception of the “Rare Item” slot. So it’s not too much of a hassle to farm or backtrack.

You can easily check monster drop tables by:
Main Menu > Snow Chronicles > Locations tab.

Because EXACT KILL is such a pain
I’ll list it here in the General section too

How to get Exact Kill!?
You must kill an enemy with no more than 10%(?) overkill on it’s MAX life. So if an enemy has 100 HP, doing 110 damage to it should be okay. If that same enemy has 001/100 HP, doing 11 damage should do it. It’s somewhere between 10 and 20%, surely.

What attacks are good for Exact Kill!?
Generally speaking, you want to find “the sweet spot” for a certain enemy you’re farming and abuse it. But, there are times you just need THE WEAKEST ATTACKS to finish guys off:

  • Setsuna and Kirs BASIC ATTACK (No Momentum) are pretty weak.
  • Kirs OSMOSE tech IS THE WEAKEST HIT IN THE GAME: and can easily get ANY exact kill even in the worst case scenario of spamming it many times if you’re desperate.


I am Setsuna Farming tips and FAQ

Before you read ANY OTHER TIP about farming in I am Setsuna there are TWO extremely effective PROTIPS above all else: Astral Bloom, and MP Recovery.

ASTRAL BLOOM: ELEMENTAL KILLS!? How to get them fast!? The very millisecond you get JULIENNE, your farming woes will be OVER for the very foreseeable future – WHY? Astral Bloom does ALL ELEMENTAL DAMAGE TYPES.

  • Astral Bloom = Aeterna + Julienne (Oblivion + Jump)
  • ALL ELEMENTAL KILLS, Link Kill (+ Over Kill, Momentum Kill) in ONE MOVE.
  • It unlocks Dark Kill WAY BEFORE you have any right to have it.

The above advice will save you hours of changing party members, and heartache. This is good in early and late-game, only “losing a little value” at the extreme end of the game.

How to restore MP efficiently!? MP is a huge factor in farming speed and efficiency. You cant just use tents all the time right? For mindless farming there are 2 Support Spritnites you should be using:

  • Gagnrath: Restores MP when you kill. Easily fuels the farmachine without stopping!
  • Vinculum: Gives a FLAT 20 MP reduction on all combos – Can reach MP cost ZERO!

So you can see by using either/both of these, MP won’t be much of an issue. Aside from this, there are a smattering of decent MP recovery skills – but none come close to the effectivity of those two IN TERMS OF FARMING.

Advice for ALL KILL TYPES!

Here’s some small words of wisdom to help you get all the kinds of kill types and loot.

  1. Best farming comp for late game is fides, kir , setsuna. Put gagnrath on them and endlessly cast gamma burst with momentum every time you go into battle. It hits every monster and it uses all elements.

    One shot everything, everytime with all elements.

    • This can easily be replicated in the late game, as you’ll see. The spritnite Clairvoyance triggers all-elemental on momentum use (applies to combo). In the end, however, specifically farming materials – the troublesome ones are exact, rare, over on bosses smetimes, and debuff on extremely resilient monsters. But yes, that’s the idea – any ALL ELE move is definitely worth trying out for farming.

      • Yup those indeed need more effort. But usually you dont need many materials from those types of kills.

        You covered exact perfectly. About debuff, early you have blunt strike, slow and bio (they work wonders) later fides is good for that too. Rare is just rare, not even the talisman helps, it is seer luck (damned giant rear horns). And last for over you just have to be a badass.

  2. Problem with fides fides kir and setsuna that you can’t have endir in the party with Momentum weapon which increases drops.
