I've tried doing this for HOURS and it's really hard.
Does anyone have any tips?
The best I've gotten is all but 5 :(

Also every time I play the game I have to re-download the full version. This happened to my friend as well. Anyone else have this problem?

1: Just keep at it and try to make sure you save a move somewhere as a backup move.

2: It's your hard drive going bad, or it is too full.

I got it on my 3rd or 4th attempt. I was really worried about it. The best advice I can give is to make sure you have at least one move available in an area you aren't working. Double check yourself as you are making moves to make sure you have another move also where you are working. Just spot-check before making your moves to make sure the combo in the area you aren't working is still there.

Where exactly do you do this at and at what level?

When you go over random points on the map you can "Search for runes" and create items in your forge from your citadel. As you get more rare runes you can eventually create a "godlike" item

Thanks for the tips. I think i'm gonna beat the game before I tackle it again.

Does anyone know if my HD goes bad and I get the new BIG one, can I still transfer my data to it from the crapped out HD? I would guess not but you never know.

Do you need the rune of god to forge a godlike item by any chance?

Yes, you need to combine a Rune of the Gods with certain other runes.

I don't believe that all items made with the Rune of the Gods count towards this achievement. You have to combine it with the correct other runes to get the difficulty to be "Godlike." Most combinations with the Run of the Gods will give you some other difficulty (like "Legendary"). When you have selected your three runes, it will show the difficulty at the bottom, before you start the mini-game.

Easy tip:

(Just like the way to survive 17 levels on Bejeweled 2)


-Look around the bottom of the board and find at least 1 move. Don't take it.
Stay as high up at the top as possible and keep making moves. (top 3 rows)

Continue doing this and try to blow up the anvils with a 4-of a kind line blast or a red skull. If you run out of moves, go down to the bottom, do that move, then check above it for any new moves the drop may have made. It took me 3 tries with this method.

Repeat this every time you clear an anvil and the board resets. If you can get 3-4, 3 anvil matches, you should be clear sailing.

Are you sure you got the same xbox?

Your live games are tied to your profile and xbox, so if you were sent back a different xbox, that would happen with all your live games.

I haven't had any problems with my Puzzle Quest.

For those trying to get this achievement, the guide posted here on Xbox360Achievements by sirnerd84 is incorrect. It says you can get the achievement with Jewels + Gods + Fire. That won't give it to you.

The combinations posted by Cavake in this thread will work. (Or at least, doing it with Shields + Gods + Poison will work, since that's what I did. I assume the other combinations listed will work as well. Just make sure it says "Godlike" when you choose them and it will work.)

yes, I wrote down the serial number. It said on the paper I got back that the motherboard was repaired.

All my other arcade games are fine except PQ

Came back after a month away from the sorry game. 15 tries at this horrid achievement.. eight of them were instant game overs with in TWO moves.

Anyone who tells you that there is any trick or skill to this is lying to you. I got 15 anvils not even watching what I was matching. It's all random bullshit.

Yeah, its definitely alot of luck to make a godly item. However, always destroy an anvil when you can even if you want to hold out to try and clear more at once.

Does anyone have a list of locations for the runes mentioned above? Might as well update the achievement guide with new runes and where to find them.

Nevermind, I found a list here:
http://www.gamefaqs.com/portable/ds/file/934598/47814

They should be in the same locations even if they are the DS ones. I shall check right now though =)

Somehow I got really lucky and got this on my first try (even though I had failed forging easier items!). There is some luck involved, what worked for me is the following strategy:

First priority is to stay alive. Try to avoid making moves that separate gems of like color in the process.

The only way to get more anvils is to destroy a lot of gems and/or get a Heroic Effort. Heroic Efforts are more luck than anything else, so the next-best option is to destroy a lot of gems. Don't bother saving 4- or 5-of-a-kind matches if there's no anvil anywhere near it; you're probably better off reseting the column/row, which in turn may give you more anvils or +5 skulls to play with.

Just a tip I picked up as I was trying to get this:

Most of the time, if you have the choice between making a vertical or horizontal line, the vertical one is the better pick. Not sure why, just seems to generate more lines. Hope that helps.

I finally got this achievement last after spending hours on previous attempts in the past.

Now all that I have left is getting a win on Xbox Live. One would think this would be easy, but whenever I play no one seems to be on and when someone is they usually seem to be the really good players that are trying to climb up the leaderboards. Kinda frustrating that such an easy and final achievement is eluding me.

I just realized I made a godlike item, so maybe if I equipped it that would give me an edge or put me on a more level playing field.

Edit: Of course even an item won't help me when no one is playing :mad:

I got this achievement rather easily. After two quick failures, I got it on the third try. Yeah, the key is keeping a potential match at the bottom. I just need the win online and I've got it all.

I tried this today, horrified at how long it might take me. Anyway, I got it on my first try. I guess I just got really lucky! :Bounce:

This may be a silly question, but I dont want to spend ages randomly looking for the runes to make the item - is there anywhere in particular which will unearth the runes I need?

i've seen a few posts saying you sould leave safty moves at the bottom and focus on the top. I don't agree with this as i tend to box myself into a corner at the bottom. i found it better to work from the bottom up as i got alot more 4 o'kinds falling down. And i know this one is obvious but try to move avils towards the center whenever you can, considering that when you score an anvil the board resests, its better to get 3 o'kind anvils.

Rune Of Staves + Rune Of Gods + Rune Of Poison is the combo i used and with my tactics i did it in about 25 mins i sh!t you not.

In my opinion learning (very hard) spells is a more challenging feat.
