Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana Guide: How to max your reputation points and unlock the best ending

In Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, there are three different endings that the player may see depending on Adol's Reputation value. Only one ending can be seen, and in order to the get the True Ending, various tasks can be completed to raise Adol's Reputation. If you blitz your way through the game without fully exploring the island of Seiren, you might find yourself with a less-than-ideal ending. This guide will detail how the Reputation system works.

There are exactly three endings you can see.

  • True Ending: Have over 200 Reputation Points (PS4 Version), 150 for Vita
  • Normal Ending: Below 200 (150 for Vita) Reputation Points, but above 74. 
  • Bad Ending: 74 and lower.

Due to the additional content added to the PS4 version, a higher amount of reputation is required for the True Ending.
