Finish the Tutorial map

Upon starting a new Single Player Story, you will be asked if you want to skip or continue with the Prologue. Choosing continue will have you play four practice battles against a Straw Man to teach you the basics of combat, how to activate your Warbeast's Special Attacks, how to create Items Power Gems, and about other Special Gems. Upon completing the fourth battle, the achievement will unlock.

Defeat Zulac

You will face Zulac as part of the main storyline at the Slaver Castle (Act II, Chapter 5). Zulac's Power Gems cause Disease. If the Disease is making the battle difficult, the shop at the Slaver Camp sells Marsh Boots which provide protection against Disease. For increased protections, you can buy two pairs of Marsh Boots and travel to Etuvesk where you can use them to craft Ornate Marsh Boots. Zulac's Special Attack steals all of your gems. This can be countered by the Golden Cross mentioned in the Scroll of St. Giles #4, which drains all Zulac's Power when you destroy a Blue Power Gem. To obtain the Golden Cross accept the quest for it at the village outside the Slaver Castle, and defeat the Ogryn guarding it in the cave to the South.

Defeat Iriki

You will face Iriki as part of the main storyline at the Basilisk's Nest (Act III, Chapter 9). Iriki's Power Gems cause Poison. If the Poison is making the battle difficult, the shop at Najat sells Jungle Boots which provide protection against Poison. Iriki's Special Attack converts all of your Rage Gems to Regular Gems, and gives the Rage to her. This can be countered by Missra's Gong, which drains all Iriki's Power when you destroy a Blue Power Gem. To obtain Missra's Gong accept the quest for it at the holes on the Northwest corner of the Basilisk's Nest, and defeat the Snake Priest guarding the gong to the Southeast.

Win 15 Ranked Xbox LIVE multiplayer games

Start up a multiplayer match and win a total of 15 matches. Make sure they are ranked. Quitting does count as a win for the other player, making this achievement easy to boost. You can organize to boost the achievement with a partner here (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=224505).

Raise any one of your Stats to 25

Each time you go up a level, you are given 3 points to distribute among your Stats. If you are looking to get this achievement as quickly as possible, you can put all your points into one Stat and will reach 25 at level 9. Alternately, you can pay to train your Stats. The first place you can do this is at the Slaver Castle (Act II, Chapter 5), which conveniently has a Stat Training maximum of 25. It costs 10 gold per point you currently have in that Stat (so if you wanted to train your Strength from 8 to 9 it would cost you 80 gold) and you will have to successfully complete a Mini Game. Raising a Stat from 1 to 25 by Training only will cost you 3000 gold.

Unlock 10 Dungeons

Upon completing certain Quests, Dungeons containing an endless supply of a specific Monster will appear. Before you can fight the Monster within, the Dungeon must first be unlocked by completing a Mini Game. Any 10 Dungeons will work for this achievement, but if you are looking to unlock it as quickly as possible it can be attained as soon as Act III, Chapter 8 after unlocking the first 10 Dungeons: Azari (Daedris), Iron Cobra (Slaver Camp), Slaver (Slaver Camp), Wraith (Ruined Palace), Overseer (Etuvesk), Mummy (Slaver Castle), Ogryn (Slaver Castle), Ashurin Guard (Najat), Hellhound (Hideout), & Berserker (Khazrimi Port).

- Chains count. Once a group of gems matching the current color is cleared, it immediately switches to the next color. This can allow you to satisfy multiple matches with a single drop.
- Plan ahead. You are given the next set of gems that you will be dropping as well as the type of gem you will have to match next after the one you are currently working on. Use this information to set up future matches.
- Difficult matters. The higher the difficulty setting, the more matches you will need to create in less time. Setting the difficulty to Casual will make things easier.
- Practice. The Single Player menu has a Mini Games option. You can practice clearing Dungeon puzzles on four different difficulties.

Uncover a secret location

Each region of the map has a Secret Battle which can be unlocked by beating one of the area's Dungeon Battles in less than 2 minutes. The easiest and earliest place to do this is at the beginning of the game in Daedris (Act I, Chapter 1). After taming your Warbeast, take and complete the side quest Hunt the Azari. The Azari Dungeon will appear. Unlock it and beat an Azari in less than 2 minutes for the achievement to unlock. You do not need to attempt the Secret Battle in order to unlock the achievement.

Train your Warbeast to level 25

At various locations over the course of the game you will have to opportunity to play a Mini Game to level up your Warbeast. The first Training session is free, but after that each subsequent session costs 50 gold per level your Warbeast currently has (so if you Warbeast was level 12 it would cost you 600 gold to train). You can increase your Warbeast by multiple levels in a single training session, and when the game board reaches the top any experience toward the next level is carried over to the next session. As a result the amount of gold it will cost to train your Warbeast to level 25 solely depends on how good you are at the Mini Game. The earliest location you can do this is the Hideout (Act III, Chapter 7) which has a Training maximum of 30.

Forge 10 items

The first place you will be able to forge items is Etuvesk (Act II, Chapter 4) after locating the Ring of Sloth. Here you can combine two of the same basic item into an Ornate version of that item by completing a Mini Game. (Two Ornate items cannot be combined at this location.) You will be provided with two Bucklers to combine, which counts toward your total. If you don't have any pairs of items to combine, you can return to the Slave Camp and purchase copies of the items you already have. Alternatively, you could simply purchase multiple sets of Hob Boots. They are the cheapest item at 50 gold each, costing a total of 900 gold in order to purchase enough for the 9 Ornate Hob Boots required to unlock the Achievement.

Secret location:
My first secret location was when I defeated a mob within 2 minutes. I then got a skull on the map where a secret location + strong mob was. Have not defeated him yet hehe.

Also defeated Iriki: handy to know is that when you do the side quests you will get an item that destroys his her lightning making it more easy to win.

Skillfully done: I just put all in strength whenever I gained a level and it popped at 25 :D

Awards: all 60 -=> prepare to grind!

Hope this helps a bit for all that are interested.
Dog trainer: just do the minigames for warbeast training. You can get +10 on the first location and another 10 at the next place where you can train, etc, etc.

The Award for winning 200 battles has been known to be a bit buggy and require more battles won to achieve, most i've heard of was 500 wins.

All bosses can be fought again in quick battle if you miss an award related to them.
