Introduction
In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, players will be on the run, fighting for survival on a desperate and dangerous quest to locate and destroy Voldemort's Horcruxes, engaging with Death Eaters and Snatchers in epic battle sequences at every turn.

To amplify the action, players will encounter ferocious creatures from the previous films in addition to the adversaries Harry faces in the seventh film. They will need to muster their most powerful magic against relentless assaults from all sides. There are no more lessons, no more training. This time the danger is real. It's time for players to fight for their lives.

Harry Potter & the Deadly Hallows is not as hard as part 1, but an enjoyable game nevertheless. It is short and if you like the movies, will be a fun 1000:gsicon: to get.


Step 1: Normal Playthrough
You need to play on normal first to unlock expert mode. On this playthrough, try to get all the collectibles, while also going for any kill and spell-related trophies. By this, I mean all the "kill 100 wizards with X spell" achievements. I suggest favouring a spell until you get the achievement, then moving to another one.

SSDD2K made a great video guide showing where the collectibles are.
(PS: There's one collectible in Hogsmeade you cannot get until you get the apperate spell, so you will have to come back to that later)

NORMAL PLAYTHROUGH VIDEO GUIDE: http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=322064


Step 2: Expert Playthrough
In this playthrough, just try to complete it while mopping up any collectibles/kill related achievements you may have missed in the normal playthrough. You will keep all the spells you unlocked on your first playthrough. You gain Apperate on The Streets of Hogsmeade and you will need it to collect one of the collectibles (see link above).



Step 3: Play Challenge Mode
Play all 12 Challenge levels until you get gold or higher on each one.

This can be a little frustrating at some points because you can play 5 minutes and then die. I found that you can die on most levels as long as you don't go back too far. If you do go back quite far, it may be better to retry. The Battle of Hogwarts was by far the most annoying/difficult for me.

Step 4: Mop Up
Play or Boost the remaining achievements you might need, but missed in your first 2 playthroughs. This will most likely be Care of the Castle, which has a good video below.


Conclusion
This game is quite easy to get 1000:gsicon: on and doesn't take that long. It's quite fun and I would say it's worth renting for a few days. The expert gets a little bit frustrating, but you get unlimited tries at it so it's not so bad. A couple of the challenges can be a bit annoying, but if you follow how I did it in my videos, you'll find it isn't so bad with a few attempts.

All of these difficulty achievements pop as soon as you've completed the game at the difficulties required. Expert is locked until you've passed the game on Normal or Advanced level. The levels do stack. The difference between Normal and Expert is that Normal has high aim assist, Expert does not. The enemies seem to flank you more on expert also. (eg. run up to you while you're hiding) When you start a new game, you will keep all the unlocked spells from any previous playthroughs. (except apperate will only be allowed from lev 2 onwards)

Tips....

Always run when you can.
Use strong spells like Confringo (:ybut::ybut:)and Impedimenta (:bbut::bbut:) to quickly kill wizards. (Confringo helps your accuracy a lot, Impedimenta not so much because odd bits will hit walls)
Do not use Expulso (multi-burst shot). This will ruin your accuracy even if you seemingly hit every shot.
Accuracy is important. At the end, 1 second is taken off for each % accuracy you have. eg. 80% accuracy = 80 seconds removed.
Don't Die. Every knock down will cost you 10 seconds, so make sure you have as little as possible. (plus you have to replay parts if you die)
Use Spell Combos. This is when you use more than one spell on a wizard. Each one of these will take off 5 seconds. (if you see my vids, I switch between Confringo, and Impedimenta a lot.
Use Quick Stuns. This is when you run up to an enemy and use Protago (:lbbut:) to knock them down. Each stun takes 2 seconds off your time. (these aren't really worth it as they are slow and you may die if you go that close to wizards)

Here are the times you have to beat...
Gringotts: 9:30
The Streets of Hogsmeade: 9:00
A Problem of Security: 4:00
The Basilisk Fang: 12:30
A Job to Do: 7:00
A Giant Problem: 4:00
The Lost Diadem: 3:30
The Battle of Hogwarts: 9:30
Surrender: 3:00
A Turn of Events: 3:30
Not my Daughter: 7:40
Voldemort’s Last Stand: 3:30

Defeated 100 enemy wizards from cover

Make sure you are under cover and press :ltbut: to aim and shoot at the wizards. It looks like you are standing out of cover, but it still counts. Staying in cover is also a good way to replenish energy if you've been hit. This is especially important for your expert playthrough.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1716/5-8Ly-0=.jpgBlind Luck (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/harry-potter-and-the-deahtly-hallows-part-2/achievement/54414-Blind-Luck.html) 5:gsicon:
Defeated 10 enemy wizards from cover, without aiming

Best do it at the beginning of the game. What you need to do is get into cover and fire. Adjust with your :ls: and fire at the wizards. As long as you don't press :ltbut:, it is considered as fire without aiming. Best level to boost this on would be the start of Chapter 11 (Not My Daughter) where you play as Ginny and lots of wizards come at you. Just stay in cover somewhere and switch to Confringo (:ybut::ybut:). Don't press :ltbut: to aim and just hit :rtbut: to hit the wizard. This can be a bit annoying but best if you wait until they are close to you and you'll find it easier.

Defeated 100 enemy wizards with Expulso

You learn Expulso in Chapter 3 (A Problem of Security). To select it, press :bbut: once. This is the multi-burst-shot spell (like a minigun). Just switch to it and kill 100 wizards. You need to be close-ish for this one to hit, so best doing this earlier in the game where you don't need the strength or distance.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1716/5-mONAo=.jpgConfringo! (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/harry-potter-and-the-deahtly-hallows-part-2/achievement/54416-Confringo-.html) 10:gsicon:
Defeated 100 enemy wizards with Confringo

You will most likely get this through normal play anyway. This is the strong missile type spell. You press :ybut::ybut: to select it and then bash wizards. It has splash damage so if there are multiple wizards huddled together this can take them out.... Bonus!

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1716/5-iIKbE=.jpgProtego! (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/harry-potter-and-the-deahtly-hallows-part-2/achievement/54418-Protego-.html) 20:gsicon:
Used Protego against 100 spells

Protego is your shield and is used by pressing :lbbut:. The best time to use this is against those rapid-fire shooting wizards. Each piece counts as one spell, so wait until a wizard shoots at you and hit :lbbut: to block it. Do this 100 times and the achievement is yours.

Successfully dispelled 100 Protego shields with Expelliarmus

What this means is to break enemy shields with Expelliarmus. Whenever you see an enemy wizard standing there with his shield up, just select Expelliarmus (press :ybut: once) and break it on him. 100 of these and you'll get the achievement.

Successfully paralysed 100 enemy wizards using Petrificus Totalus

You will learn how to use this in chapter 5, when you get have to protect Seamus at the bridge. Press :xbut::xbut: twice to select Petrificus Totalus. Aim with :ltbut: (it will zoom in a little) and use :rtbut: to shoot the spell at an enemy. This is a very strong spell and can take down enemies fairly quickly. Use this spell when you need to get out of cover quickly, and you have enemies surrounding you.

Defeated 1000 enemy wizards in the Main Story OR Challenges

This will come naturally as you play through the story. If you die, the kills will carry over. You should earn this by the end of the game. If not, your kills from previous playthroughs carry over to your new game, so you could boost this if needed by playing any level.

Triggered 5 explosive reactions

You will come across a dragon during the last section of the first level (Gringotts). You will pass 3 pillars and the fourth will break. You will then need to head to it and crouch. In order to get past the dragon, you will need to cast a spell at the torches in front of the dragon. Make sure there are 5 to the right of you. Aim and shoot at the one directly in front of you to set off a chain reaction and cause the dragon to look the other way. (this will be hard to see)

You have to do this part 3 times (normal, expert, and challenge).. I got this early during my first playthrough, so there must be others scattered around the place.

Escaped Voldemort with minimal damage to Hogwarts

You can only get this on chapter 10 (A Turn of Events) during the chase scene. You can only destroy 10 breakables during the scene to get this acheivement. The best ones to destroy are the candles and roof structures.

Here is the video guide that got me the achievement, but it is actually a lot easier than this. If you look for glowing roof sections, shoot those... I think there are 3 in the whole scene. Get that, and shoot 4+ more candles and you will get the achievement. (You should be fine with 7 more)

Completed a level without being defeated

If you got defeated, just press xbox button and exit to dashboard. Reload the game and continue from last checkpoint. You will get the achievement at the end of the level. Best done at Level 1 (mostly easy, just avoid the dragon's fire). To be honest, you probably don't need to quit out. If you are careful, you should manage this. (I got it on lev 2 as I stupidly died with the dragon's fire on lev 1)

Defeated 10 enemy wizards before they cast a spell

Just use rapid fire and take down the wizard before they cast. Oncfe you see them appear, quickly aim at them and take them down, switching spells if aiming went off. Do this 10 times. This is easier done when you get Confringo as it's strong and will kill most wizards early in the game.

Defeated 10 enemy wizards with Protego deflections

Time the block :lbbut: and you will deflect the enemy's shot. Do this 10 times and u will get it. If you find it hard, just keep pressing :lbbut: on a rapid fire wizard and you will deflect its shot sooner or later

Defeated 4 enemy wizards with a Confringo cast

The best time to do this is after beating the game. While on chapter 1 (Gringotts), get to the top of the path that leads down to the dragon. 4 wizards will appear. Select Confringo by pressing :ybut::ybut: and bash them while they are close together. If you miss it, then quit out to the main menu and press continue. It will restart you just before this section so you can keep retrying it until you get it. It took me 3 or 4 attempts to get this, but that was mostly because of my silly aiming.

Defeated 50 enemy wizards using more than one spell

Best done on those shield wizard. Cast Expulso (Press :ybut: once), then switch to another spell to take them down. (Confringo is best as it's strong - :ybut::ybut:) You can easily get it through the course of the game if you don't simply stick to 1 spell to take down the wizards.

Used Protego to defeat 20 enemy wizards at close range

Somewhat like shield bash. Cast Stupefy (press :xbut: once) to weaken the wizard and go near them and press :lbbut: to hit them with your shield. The enemy need to be killed from your Protego to count.

Defeated 5 enemy wizards with one Impedimenta cast

Impedimenta is the spell that locks on to your targets. The best time to do this is after beating the game. While on chapter 1 (Gringotts), when you fall off the bridge and go up to the next door to unlock. A ton of weak guards will come out. It's quite easy to get 5 on screen at the same time. Just select Impedimenta by pressing :bbut::bbut: and then hold down :ltbut:. Move your crosshair over the men and they will glow blue. Make sure you've done this to 5 enemies and then tap :rtbut: and you'll fire towards those 5 guards. If no walls get in the way, you should be able to get this with little trouble.

This is a lot easier than it sounds. Apparate about 10-15 times and you will unlock this, so you can do it anywhere. You will only gain apparate in chapter 8 (The Battle of Hogwarts) and you can earn it by apparating around when you learn first. You will need to press :rbbut: to apparate.

Greate guide so far man. I just got this half price with my new Xbox slim :-). For the story related achievements put *Story related and cannot be missed* or some variation of that.

If you need any information on submitting or making the guide feel free to ask me whether on this thread or pm me/visitor message me.

Hey dude are you planning on finishing this guide. Everything is real nice, but this guide could benefit from some actual descriptions on the achievements that fall under the "other" category of your guide.

Defeated 100 enemy wizards from cover

Make sure you are under cover and press LT to aim and shoot at the wizards. You could easily get this through story mode as long as you use cover before taking down the wizards.

Defeated 10 enemy wizards from cover, without aiming

Best do it at the beginning of the game. What you need to do is get into cover and fire. Adjust with ur L-stick and fire at the wizards. As long as you don't press LT, it would be considered as fire without aiming.

Used Protego against 100 spells

Basically used RB to bloack the spells. Every spells fire would count. Meaning those rapid fire wizard's shot, each shot counts as 1 block

If you got defeated, just press xbox button and exit to dashboard. Reload the game and continue from last checkpoint. You will get the achievement at the end of the level. Best done at Level 1 (mostly easy, just avoid the dragon's fire)

Probably the first achievement you get. Just get into cover and kill the first guard.

The rest of the kill xx achievements would probably come along in time. Just make sure u switch to the other spells when you are done with it.

Great improvement from a few days ago. The guide deserves a sticky, and people should not be so stingy and give this guide some 5 star reviews. Now that it is complete, it's a real nice easy to follow achievement guide.

As a fellow guide author, I understand the time involved in writting guides. And the importance to satisfy not only the readers of the guide, but the author them self.

Except half of the information is from my guide...

As well as my collectible guide...you could have atleast asked first. The last achievement is a carbon copy of my information. Most of the others are parts of mine as well. If you want you can combine guides with me and share the credit?

Edit: BTW I wasn't the 1 star reviewer mine was 5 stars.

Thanks man! I started it, and went to bed at 7am with the last page of it unfinished. I was busy for the next 2-3 days and didn't get back to it and I get loads of complaints... and someone 1 starred it too. Pretty mean I think, but I guess some people are just impatient. There's nothing stopping others from making guides instead of bitching about mine... it actually says this in the guidemaking guide.

Anyway - it took a day or two to record the videos, cut them up and then upload them all also. (My internet only has 0.4Mbps upload).

Great Guide Cully, very well done

Just two little things I noticed: You used two times the wrong button picture for Protego. For the first time (Protego achievement) you used the LT and for the second time (That showed them achievement) you used RB. But both times it's the LB button.

Otherwise a great guide, thank you for your help buddy :)

CrustyDirtDemon's Thread on this: http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=321037

Just to point out that thread has nothing to do with that achievement.

Update from me: I finally got round to finishing my expert playthrough, i really can't be bothered with the challenges anymore and the protego achievements just dont seem to be working for me, i'm sure ive killed more than 10 with deflections and as for running into them with protego to kill them i always seem to be 1 cast away no matter what lol

Anyway some good parts to this guide that helped, unfortunatly no good plans for the protego one, i also spent over an hour on impedementia but on the bit you state 4 come, then 4, if i try and run forwards to pull the second 4 ron or hermione kills one or two causing me not to have enough in LoS markable.

This one is going back finally, need a new rental (good job i have 2 out at once lol).
