The Legend of Heroes: Trails to Azure — How to Get Tio’s Hidden S-Craft

NOTE: This article contains an area name some would consider a spoiler. 

In The Legend of Heroes: Trails to Azure, learning new S-Crafts is fairly self-explanatory. They’re usually acquired by reaching a critical story point or achieving a high enough level. However, one notable exception to this rule is Tio’s Ultimate S-Craft.

Well, I say ‘Ultimate,’ but I rarely recommend actually using it. Regardless, you’ll traverse a dungeon called the Thaumaturgical Sector during the game’s Finale. As you explore the linear area, you’ll eventually open a treasure chest (sequentially the seventh) containing an item called the Red Keycard.

With this key item now acquired, if you backtrack just a bit in that same dungeon, you’ll identify a door coated in red, which can only be opened with the Red Keycard. Precise directions aren’t needed here since the dungeon’s pathing is abundantly straightforward. But you can skip past this door if you aren’t paying attention.


If you enter that room and examine its contents, Tio will learn the Eidolon Gear S-Craft after a cutscene. It’s essentially a far more powerful version of her Ether Buster 2 S-Craft and can decimate foes. However, I recommend sticking to her Zero Field S-Craft since its provided invulnerability, especially the two free hits, if activated at 200 CP, is invaluable in countless contexts.
