Winds of Change – Main Story Guide 1 - gameplaylists.com
A guide to walk you through the story from start to finish, gathering as much as possible.

 
 

Opening notes

 
This guide will take you from start to finish with all major information being outlined. This includes where to find any Chats, Party Banter conversations, Parallel Chronicles, Heart-to-Heart conversations, loyalty scenes, books, Purity/Corruption choices and any other necessary info to get the full experience out of the story. 
 
While the locations of the Chats will be outlined, any choices or emotional response options within them will not, as they are not crucial to the story, but merely add more to it. It is advised that you read through them and/or make your own choices regardless. Likewise, the Parallel Chronicles are not necessary for completion, though, again, they add more to the story. 
 
With any Heart-to-Heart conversations, you must view them in order. If you’re in an area that should have one, but it doesn’t, you’ve missed the previous one. These conversations are required to earn the loyalty of your party members. With Valessa and Sovy, you must have their loyalty before the final Act for them to survive the final battle. 
 
Also, you are not limited to only choosing Flirty/Romantic options with only one party member. In fact, there are a couple Party Banters that you can only get if you flirt with Ulric or Valessa while already dating Fortaime. 
 
One last thing to note. With important choices, some of them contain spoiler notes for the final battle. It is up to you as to whether or not you let these spoiler notes determine the choice you make, as something different will happen later in the story if you opt not to. 
 
With all that being said, you’re now ready to begin your journey through Winds of Change
