Achievement Guide and Roadmap
 
Hi all, this is my first guide. I know there's another one posted, but it's full of grammatical errors, and the author hasn't updated it in over a week. So, without any further ado:

ROAD MAP


Est. Achievement Difficulty: 4/10
Offline: 50 (1000G)
Online: None
DLC: 6 (100G) (2 DLCs with 3 achievements each at 50G per DLC pack)

Approximate amount of time to 1000G: 50-100 hours (an actual playthrough should be about 30-50 hours)

Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1 and a partial second

Number of missable achievements: Anything not marked “Story-related” is missable; however, most of these should be easily acquired during normal gameplay. The exceptions are Pirate With Muskets and Voodoo Pirate, which are mutually exclusive. Also, All-Rounder requires more than one playthrough.

Glitched achievements: None. However, there are a few issues with Exterminator from the Air Temple DLC that may prevent quest completion (and thus, getting the achievement) if you aren’t careful. See the achievement info for further details. Some people may also encounter problems with The Cunning Captain in the main storyline that prevent quest completion; see the achievement info for details and workarounds.

Do Cheats Disable Achievements?
There are no cheats.

Intro
Risen 2 is an underrated pirate-themed RPG, the sequel to Risen. People who are only after achievements might want to avoid it, however, since two achievements (Big Game Hunter and All-Rounder) require lots of grinding and will make getting 1000G a long slog. Anyone who likes RPGs or fantasy, however, will likely enjoy the game.

Step 1
Start a playthrough, and get up to the point where you have to choose between siding with the Inquisition (in which you get muskets) and the Natives (in which you get Voodoo). Make a new save before you choose, since maxing out both the Firearms skills and Voodoo skills in one playthrough is impossible, as the two are mutually exclusive. In addition, Pirate With Muskets and Voodoo Pirate are also mutually exclusive, but can be easily obtained by reloading a save from before you choose, and simply picking the opposite faction from the one you went with initially.

Step 2
From here, just play through the game. However, try to spend as little glory (xp) and gold as possible, as you will need 61,000 of the former and around 17,000 of the latter in order to get all the skill achievements. See All-Rounder and Voodoo Wizard for details.

Step 3
Once you've played through the game and beaten it, assuming you followed the guide (or were simply thorough, and did every quest you could) you should have every achievement except for the last 3. To get these, reload your save from before you made your faction choice, and choose the opposite one and do the quest you're immediately given. That will get you 1 achievement (Pirate With Muskets or Voodoo Pirate); for the others, you will have to max out whichever skill is associated with that faction (see All-Rounder for details), as well as grind out your remaining monster kills for Big Game Hunter.


ACHIEVEMENT GUIDE

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-6CAbg=.jpgJust a little tipple... 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Drank first rum

Pretty self-explanatory. Just acquire a rum through any means and drink it.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/+OEwtg==.jpgBig Game Hunter 50http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Killed 2000 monsters

This, along with All-Rounder, is one of the two big time-consuming, grinding achievements. You have to kill 2000 monsters across all playthroughs; note you do not have to save the game, as all kills will stack. If you really want to grind this out in one location, a good place to do it is at the entrance to the Water Temple, as there are at least half a dozen enemies at the entrance, and you have your entire crew to help. Another good spot to do this is at the end boss, as she will periodically spawn anywhere from 3-10 enemies. Just don't kill her and wait for her to spawn her henchmen, then kill them.

To give you an idea of how long it will take, I had around 800 kills after doing all the other achievements through 1 1/2 playthroughs. Took about 8-12 hours to grind the rest out.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-om9-o=.jpgBane of the Beasts 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Killed 500 monsters

See: Big Game Hunter for details. You should get this in one playthrough, assuming you don't rush through it.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-ww93c=.jpgPet Cemetery 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Killed 20 ambient animals

Easy enough. Whenever you see any animals (non-hostile monkeys, turkeys, rats, and tame warthogs), just kill them. Alternatively you could find one, save your game, kill it, and load without saving, then rinse and repeat.

However, do note that there have been reports that the re-loading trick may not work for this achievement. Even if it doesn't, it shouldn't present any real problem in the long run, as there are more than enough animals in the game to get the achievement naturally.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-gH-k8=.jpgDeep Sea Fisherman 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Killed 50 sea monsters

Again, pretty self-explanatory. Simply kill 50 crabs, sand-devils, Sunken Ones, or Leviathans. As with any of the “kill x number of this” achievements, you could simply reload one section over and over again, though you shouldn’t need to.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-nnBtw=.jpgCrab Catcher 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Killed 10 giant crabs

Same as the other “kill x number of this” achievements, only kill 10 giant crabs. To kill them easily, you should have learned the “kick” skill from a skill trainer; then, when the crabs come at you, simply hold LT and press Y to kick them. You’ll flip them for several seconds, during which they are extremely vulnerable.

Alternatively, you could also have Patty in your party (as she has the kick skill), or Venturo (since he can just shoot them with his musket). You could also shoot them with a musket yourself, if you’re following the Inquisition path.

Darth Villainous 08-26-2012 04:44 AM

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-4R-sI=.jpgBeginner 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Killed 10 monsters

See: Big Game Hunter for details. This should be one of the first achievements you get.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-3QD+Q=.jpgLegendary Hero 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Collected 20 legendary items

There are 20 legendary items in the game, along with one other if you have the Treasure Isle DLC. You have to get all 20 of them to get the achievement (if you have the DLC the legendary item from that counts, meaning you only need 19 from the base game).

For a guide to them all, see here: http://guides.gamepressure.com/risen2/. Scroll down the menu bar on the right side of the page until you get to “Legendary Items.”

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-hy5B0=.jpgStoryteller 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Collected 10 legendary items

See: Legendary Hero for details.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-mSHI4=.jpgTreasure Hunter 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Found first treasure in the game

A treasure is only obtainable when you have a treasure map and a shovel. Once you have both, simply activate the quest on your map (press X on the quest screen to mark any quest as currently active), and go to the location it indicates. Once there, you should see a red "X" marked on the ground. Just stand over it and press A (there will be no prompt to do so), and you’ll dig up the treasure.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/-KMj3A==.jpgMade of Money 50http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Acquired 300,000 gold

You won’t get this much gold naturally in one playthrough, but fortunately, as with all the other “get x number of this/kill x number of this” achievements, everything you get across all playthroughs stacks without you needing to save. Thus, you can get this easily by getting a good number of items in your inventory, saving in front of any vendor, selling them all your items, and then simply reloading your save and repeating the process. It does not have to be 300,000 in your inventory at one time.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/-UPbTw==.jpgCash Cow 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Acquired 100,000 gold

See: Made of Money.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/-2LS+g==.jpgSkinflint 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Acquired 1000 gold

See: Made of Money.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-087Hk=.jpgProtector 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Won duel against Severin

Easy enough. Severin is located in the main courtyard in Caldera outside the room you start the game in. When you talk to him, offer to help train his students and he’ll challenge you to a duel. Accept it and beat him. If you’re having trouble early on, you can always come back once you’ve levelled up a bit.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-gN+Po=.jpgDigger 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Dug up 50 treasures

Seeing as there aren’t 50 treasures in the game, the best way to do this is to save right before you dig one up, re-load your save once you’ve dug it up, and repeat the process.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-ntAGk=.jpgKleptomaniac 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Picked 100 locks

To pick locks you’ll need a lockpick (acquired during the “Freeing Largo” quest on Tacarigua) and enough points in your “thievery” talent to pick that particular lock. Then, find a locked chest and play the lock-picking mini-game. There are more than enough locked chests (and a few doors) to get this naturally during a single playthrough; however, you could always do the save-and-load trick used in other achievements if you want to get this out of the way.

Darth Villainous 08-26-2012 04:45 AM

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-rKFGc=.jpgCrack Shot 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Hit 10 times in one game in the shooting mini-game

The shooting mini-game is offered by 2 characters: Barney at the Pirate’s Den on Tacarigua and Henri on Antigua. Simply hit all 10 targets (but don’t shoot any bombs) that are thrown across the screen. Easy enough. If you’re having trouble, keep your crosshair in the center of the screen when waiting for a target (in order to minimize the distance the cursor has to travel), and use the right thumbstick to aim. Note that you don’t have to have the exact center of the crosshair on the target to hit it; anywhere in the circle will do.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-sq7PQ=.jpgDrunkard 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Won drinking duel mini-game 10 times

The drinking duel mini-game is offered a few places, the easiest of which to find is probably from Morgan in the bar near the dock on Antingua. Simply challenge him 10 times and beat him. Easy enough. When going for the bottles, make sure to grab them from the middle, rather than the edges.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-jrHdI=.jpgBirdbrain 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Used parrot 5 times

To get the parrot, you’ll have to have the Parrot Trainer skill, which requires you to have a cunning level of 8, and then buy the skill (which comes with a free parrot) from Flannigan on Tacarigua. From there, simply equip the parrot and use it 5 times; it does not have to be used in battle.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-ypDrg=.jpgTour Guide 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png At least 5 crew members on the ship

Easy enough, simply have 5 crew members on your ship. 4 of these are unmissable; for the fifth, you’ll have to talk to Bones in Maracai Bay and get him to agree to join, unless you have either of the DLCs, which will each give you an extra crew member (though in the case of Treasure Isle, that crew member is only temporary).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-6IBw0=.jpgAll-Rounder 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Learned each skill once

This, along with Big Game Hunter, is one of the two grinding achievements. To get this, you’ll have to buy every single skill in the game across all playthroughs. It is not doable in one playthrough, as to buy every skill for an attribute requires you to have level 10 in that attribute, and there is simply not enough xp in the game to do this. Also, having max Firearms and Voodoo is impossible, as the two are mutually exclusive (you can have a few skills in Voodoo if you choose Firearms, and vice-versa, but not all of them). Thus, the simplest way to get this achievement is:

1. Save up 61,000 glory (xp) as this is the amount required to get to level 10 in an attribute (the xp needed will be a little less if you happen to have the legendary item for an attribute).

2. Save up around 17,000 gold, the amount needed to buy all skills for a particular attribute.

3. Once you have both above steps done, save your game in a new slot. Then max out any one attribute, and proceed to buy all the skills for that attribute from the various skill trainers in the game. This done, re-load your game without saving, and move on to the next attribute.

Regular-level trainers (for level 7 and under skills) are found on almost any island. However, there is only one master-level trainer for each attribute (for level 8-10 skills). They are:

Blades - Admiral Alvarez on Antigua. Note there is a bug with him, in that he will not offer to train you any further if you have told him you have all the Titan Artifacts. The only way around this is to load a previous save. Also note that you have to finish with Slayne's questline before he will offer to train you.
Firearms - Godin in the High Council in Caldera.
Toughness - Bones (initially in Maracai Bay, later on in your crew if you offer him a position).
Toughness - Alister on the top floor of Booze's bar at the Pirates' Den on Tacarigua (not a master level trainer, but he is the only NPC who will teach you the Distiller skill).
Cunning - Flannigan at the Pirates’ Den on Tacarigua.
Voodoo - Osamu in Maracai Bay.

If you’re having trouble finding someone, you can always go into the characters section of your journal (under Logbook), and set a marker for any type of teacher. It will show you all the ones who are on the island you’re currently on.

4. Firearms and Voodoo are mutually exclusive. You can only max out one or the other on a single playthrough; thus, you will have to start another game to get the one you didn’t choose. Or, you could simply reload a save from before being forced to choose between the Inquisition and the Natives, and play from there.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-9o-54=.jpgVoodoo Wizard 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Learned everything about voodoo

To get this achievement, you need to get this attribute raised to level 10 (or level 11, if you have the legendary item for it). This will require 61,000 glory (xp). The best thing to do, therefore, is to save up that much xp, save your game, then max out the attribute you want. From there you can reload your save, and max out the others one at a time.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-wDzms=.jpgRogue 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Learned everything about cunning

See: Voodoo Wizard

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/+QHIJQ==.jpgMr Industrious 50http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Completed 250 quests

As simple as it suggests. Simply do every quest you can find. For a full quest list, see here: http://guides.gamepressure.com/risen2/


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-v-MMA=.jpgNecromancer 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png 'The Split Soul' completed

To do this, you have to have Bones in your crew. Talk to him until he mentions something about a white scarf. Later on, while in the Underworld, you will find his other half. Simply talk to him until you get the option to mention the white scarf. Once this is done, talk to him in the real world again to complete the quest.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-sZ1eg=.jpgCheese Knife 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png 'The Cunning Captain' completed

Story-related, unmissable. Note there is a bug people sometimes encounter with this that makes the duel at the end of this quest line unwinnable (you can't hit him and he can't hit you). There are two workarounds for this:

1. Reload a save from the beginning of the Isle of Thieves, making sure to follow Slayne the whole way and not go exploring on your own until after the cutscene with the chest.

2. During the duel, either lure your opponent out onto the fields where there are monsters and stand next to your enemy so the monsters hit him while they're trying to hit you, or attack the townsfolk and do the same thing, so they're the ones attacking him. Make sure to have plenty of healing items. Once your opponent is defeated, you can simply run away from town until they stop chasing you (everything should be ok once you have the option to fast-travel); when you return, the townsfolk will no longer be hostile.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-r5LXs=.jpgTub Captain 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png 'Build a Raft' completed

Story-related, unmissable.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-9bxoI=.jpgFriend of the Gnomes 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png 'The Gnome Eater' completed

Talk to Kaan (the Gnomes’ chieftain) on The Isle of Thieves, and he’ll give you this quest. This boss fight is very difficult (I found it to be by far the hardest in the game), especially since the creature will eat any weapons you have equipped except the Titan Spear. The best way of doing it, then, is to climb up to the back of a tiny little ledge on the right side of the clearing (it has what appears to be the head of a fallen statue lying upside down in front of it), and keep throwing the spear at the monster. If you’re positioned correctly near the back, it shouldn’t be able to hit you, even if it climbs up the wall itself. The parrot is also apparently useful here, though I didn’t use it myself.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-yaN6Q=.jpgThe Hand of God 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png 'The Greedy Captain' completed

Story-related, unmissable.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/--srNQ==.jpgThe Right Hand 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png 'Chaka Datu's Legacy' completed

Talk to any of Datu, Hakeke, or Zaalu in Maracai Bay to start this. (Though Hakeke and Zaalu may or may not offer the quest to you, depending on what faction you’re with).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/-DraEw==.jpgCaptain 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png 'A New Ship' completed

Story-related, unmissable. Note there is a bug during the "sabotage the cannons" phase of the quest, whereby Benito will not leave his post during the night (as he is supposed to). You therefore cannot sabotage the cannons stealthily, and thus have no alternative but to beat him up (try to lure him down the forest path to his right, to avoid having the whole city attack you) and sabotage the cannons while he is down.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/+Zgx6g==.jpgHarpooner 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png 'The Titan Weapon' completed

Story-related, unmissable.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/+HjJeQ==.jpgLiberator 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png 'Free Hawkins' completed

Story-related, unmissable. Note that if you don’t have a thieving skill high enough to get the key, you can apparently blow the cell door open with a cannon or a bomb.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/+ectDQ==.jpgVoodoo Pirate 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png 'The Ancestors' Blessing' completed

Story-related, unmissable if you are on the Native/Voodoo path. Unobtainable in that playthrough if you are not.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/+sA5Aw==.jpgKnight in Shining Armour 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png 'Rescue Patty!' completed

Story-related, unmissable.

Secret Achievements

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-kL5UE=.jpgMonkey Dance 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Used monkey 20 times

To get the monkey, you’ll have to have cunning at level 6, and buy the skill from Flanngan on Tacarigua. From there, simply equip the monkey, send it out, and then return it to your character. Rinse and repeat.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-1J9is=.jpgSeafarer 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Travelled by ship 20 times

Pretty self-explanatory. You can either get this naturally or just sail back and forth between two locations.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-16zzc=.jpgDetective 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png 'Garcia's Masquerade Uncovered' completed

Rather than posting details here, which would provide major spoilers, I’ll simply post a link to the walkthrough here: http://guides.gamepressure.com/risen...e.asp?ID=15080. Note that this IS missable, and also sets up a pretty difficult fight. Make sure to have lots of healing items and good weapons before doing this.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/-doigA==.jpgBookworm 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png 'Following Garcia's Trail' completed

DLC: Treasure Isle - Cost: 800 MSP (or free with new copies of Special Edition) - Achievements: 3 - Points: 50

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-lMaIA=.jpgAlligator Jack 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Killed all alligators on Treasure Isle

Pretty self-explanatory. For a map of all alligators, see here: http://www.trueachievements.com/a166245/alligator-jack-achievement.htm

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-zug3k=.jpgLong John Silver 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Set course for Treasure Isle for the first time

Pretty self-explanatory. Once youíve got pages 2-4 of the diary and recruited Harlok, talk to Patty and Treasure Isle will be available for you to sail to.


Secret Achievements

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-iskBM=.jpgGrave Robber 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Opened every deadly chest once

At the end of the Treasure Isle quest, there will be four chests you have to choose from. 3 of them will kill you, while the other will complete the quest. Simply save before opening any of them, and open each of them, one at a time, reloading after you die (the one on the left contains the treasure).


DLC: Air Temple - Cost: 800 MSP (or free with new copies of Special Edition) - Achievements: 3 - Points: 50

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-ttYTU=.jpgRobinson Crusoe 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png 'The Marooned Sailor' completed

Upon arriving at the Air Temple island, youíll come across a marooned man named Creuse. Offer to take him home to Antigua, and do so once youíve finished your business on the island.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-qNmaY=.jpgTemplar 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png 'The Air Temple' complete

You get this quest from Eldric on Antigua. Simply follow it to its end.



Secret Achievements

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5-hKdTs=.jpgExterminator 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Killed all gargoyles and gave their eggs to Eldric

This quest is a bit buggy in that the gargoyles on the Air Temple island sometimes spawn in mid-air, or donít spawn at all. This is problematic in that you have to kill them all. When they spawn in mid-air, you can either shoot them with a musket or throw the Titan Harpoon at them. Sometimes the bug can be fixed by simply reloading, and sometimes not. Iíd advise you to save before setting foot on the island, and to save frequently in a different slot after each kill.

Once you've killed all the gargoyles on the Air Temple island, speak to Eldric on your ship and he'll tell you they've spread elsewhere across the seas. You have to then travel to each (non-DLC) island/location and talk to Eldric while in port; he will tell you whether or not there are more gargoyles/eggs in that location. Once you've killed them all and gotten their eggs, talk to him again and the achievement should pop.

For reference, there are six locations you need to visit for this. They are:

Caldera (no gargoyles to kill/eggs to collect, but you have to talk to Eldric anyway)
Isle of the Dead (ditto)
Tacarigua (some gargoyles to kill/eggs to collect)
Maracai Bay (some gargoyles to kill/eggs to collect)
Sword Coast (some gargoyles to kill/eggs to collect)
Isle of Thieves (some gargoyles to kill/eggs to collect)

Blades - Admiral Alvarez on Antigua (note there is a bug with him, in that he will not offer to train you any further if you have told him you have all the Titan Artifacts. The only way around this is to load a previous save).

Alright, i dont have any training options from him and i still havent done the Slayne quests yet.
So i guess i dont have all the artifacts yet but still he doesnt have any dialouge options for training.

Yeah, you have to finish with Slayne to get him to train you. I've updated the guide with that info.

No but you still need to talk to Eldric to ask him if there is once you arrive there, he'll say no and it'll complete the quest and you'll get the achievement.

The six locations you need to visit:
Caldera (None there)
The Isle of the Dead (None there)
Tacarigua (Some to kill/eggs to collect)
The Sword Coast (Some to kill/eggs to collect)
The Isle of Thieves (Some to kill/eggs to collect)
Maracai Bay (Some to kill/eggs to collect)

Treasure Island; he doesn't even know about it being real or something, so no need to visit there.

Huh. I confess I got this achievement naturally, and thus just assumed it was the same as all the others. I'll add a note to the guide that it may not work this way.

I can tell you now that either the small tame monkeys don't count or the kill reload doesn't work for the achievement. Used the 3 monkeys by the one treasure chest early in the game which would've been quick to get it and it never popped.

Thanks for the Guide. :)

There an easier way to kill the gnome eater. As it eats any weapon you have in you hand, equip a bomb and let it eat it. It might take more than one, I had whittled its health down part way by dropping bombs in its path when i let it get too close and it took the one I was holding.

ok so im 2 hours in and thinking have i just gone back to the past with this rpg i know its a year old but come on, i am on the caldera island and doing the clothes quest for the locked up pirate so i activate the quest and it says mark it on the map (which i did buy) so i do that but its not marked on the map so how the hell if all the 250+ quests in this game are not marked on the map are you supposed to find them. do i just randomly hunt around trying to find the said area in the quest??, if so this is going to be a frustrating game to say the least.

Game is on sale this week. But 30-50 hours just for a normal playthrough, without worrying about 100% on achievements?!?!? Who has this much time to spend on one game when we're getting two free games a month?

Even at $5, might have to pass. Thanks for the guide and letting me know what I might be getting myself into...
