Story Mode Guide

Complete Story Mode Walkthrough

This is a nice straightforward Story Mode Guide. It lists all the objectives for each episode as well as both the order and way to complete them. The guide is as spoiler free as it can be while being helpful. This guide will also not cover anything gameplay related. If you are repeatedly getting killed by a certain boss, go level up or put the game into Easy Mode.

If you want to start a New Game Plus, it is highly recommended that you first finish all the Side Episodes and Character Episodes. It is possible to completely miss your chance to get the Special Sword Skills for characters who obtain them through these Character Episodes.

The Gold Handshake Bond is what unlocks these Character Events. This icon appears above the character’s stats in the ASSOCIATE menu in the Maintenance Booth. Take the specific character who has a Sword Skill with “???” as its unlock requirements on 10 or so extremely easy Extra Quests to get that Handshake icon to appear. When this character has this icon, go to the Arena in town for an event to unlock that Sword Skill.

Its also worth noting that items gained from Story Episodes & Side Episodes cannot be duplicated through another New Game Plus run. You cannot have multiple Trinity Luna rings or multiple Light Symbols (Charm that increases Cast Time).

You can however duplicate Challenge, Friend & Extra Quest reward items. This means you are able to get multiple Crests of Yggdrasil as well as the rings that greatly boost HP/MP.

Now you can enjoy the endgame which offers tons of things to do as well as a robust Online Mode. If this is your first time on my site, I have comprised tons of information about this game such as Character OverviewsLeveling Guides, Weapon Building Guides, Boss Guides and hands-on Character Guides for every character in the game. Everything on my site is written with the intention of helping the reader become an exceptionally good player so it would be good if you could take your time reading through all of it. All of this stuff is accessible from the AccelSword Super Guide Main Page.

Special thanks to Rea who helped me with this Story Mode Guide. May your Tyr be twice as strong in memory of the other.

      1. How do you start the side story emblem? Or is it under a different name in The US version? If so is it the one that starts with silver crow and piles?

  2. You know I don’t know…. Let’s call it “the shenanigans of crow & friends” lol sounds about right.
    I’ll tell you when I check the real name.

    1. Finished game using DW Kirito and debuffs. He is less than PvP 500 and has no trouble fighting lvl700 bosses. So thanks for the tips on how to use Kirito. I plan on using him with 2H sword. But I respect the duel wielding XD.

      1. Hey BK is it just me or is graphite edge not only kiri-boy but also exceeds almost all 2 hand sword users in dps?

        Like

      2. He definitely has some relation to Kiibo.
        I think he does, his damage output is really high. But it’s kind of difficult to compare SAO and AW DPS because AW need some time to build meter whereas SAO characters just just skills non-stop.
        Also, he’s not easy to use like 2H Sword and he has to earn his damage.

      3. Wait just realized I may have an explanation for graphite edge. If sao and ccel world take place in alternate realities then couldn’t Kirito have been born later? Or the other explanation is Kirito taught his son EVERYTHING he knows

    1. That’s only the first one of five of the Side Episodes. If I recall correctly, the next one is triggered by speaking to Lime Bell in town. Then the next one is Scarlet Rain then Black Lotus then Sky Raker.

      Once you clear all 5 Side Episodes, but the Kings in the BP Shop.
