Heaven and Earth 30
Built a Tongquetai and welcomed the Emperor to your town.
Tongquetai is the final goal in Ambition mode(storywise). When you got to pause>camp management you can see on the right your Tongquetai completion %. You need to max out(lvl50) Blacksmith,Teahouse, Barracks and Merchant. Fame and allies probably get maxed out before those so don’t worry about them just keep increasing them. Don’t worry if nothing happens when you get Tongquetai to 100% go play one battle and come back, the cutscene should start.
A Shout of Triumph 30
Finished all of the stages within Story Mode and Free Mode with the exception of the tutorial.
After you have played every stage in story mode; historical, hypothetical and every branch you should have unlocked every possible stage in the game. They can be found in Free mode and just go there and play through every stage that doesn’t have cleared next to it. You can do this achievement on any difficulty, beginner being the easiest but Chaos would also work the Master of Chaos achievement.
The Land of Plenty
Obtained more than 1,000 materials for weapons and facilities in Ambition Mode.
Materials are found on Skirmish battles. There are usually urn in every garrison and there are crates when enemies have occupied them. Officers and unit commanders also drop materials. You have to get 1000 materials for weapons AND facilities. Brown ones are for facilities and blue ones are for weapons. Only the ones found on the battlefield count towards this!
Here is a link to a thread with maps for materials:
The Ties that Bind Us
Became allies with all of the officers in Ambition Mode.
There are a total of 790 allies in Ambition mode. Everytime you reach your ally limit you can’t obtain any more allies but don’t worry, even if you beat officers when your ally limit is full they only retreat and come again later in battles. To raise your ally limit you have to raise your fame.
The Height of Prosperity
Obtained all of the facilities in Ambition Mode.
There are 8 facilities in Ambition mode. You unlock new facilities as your fame and number of allies get bigger. There is: Blacksmith, Teahouse, Barracks, Merchant, Farm, Training Grounds, Stables and Academy.
A Majestic Manner
Reached the maximum Fame level in Ambition Mode.
Maximum fame is 9999. Just keep playing ambition mode to raise your fame and ally limit. Everytime you reach your fame limit you have to get more allies to exceed your fame. Unconventional battles give you the most fame as they give you little side mission on the battlefield to get lots of fame.
A Collector of Rarities
Obtained all of the Camp Symbols.
Camp symbols are obtained after winning a Duel in Ambition mode. A duel occurs after 3 battles in a row. These are special battles that usually have 4-5 playable officers in them and after the battle you will get a camp symbol, there are 20 in total.
Won 100 battles with the same officer.
Play 100 battles with one officer. Story, free and ambition mode all count towards this. Should come naturally as you have to play 100 straight battles to get a war elephant.
An Intricate Tale
Completed all of the stages in Story Mode.
You have to complete every story mode stage, which means every historical, hypothetical and branch stage. There are star missions in stages that usually effect on the story branching and after completing one kingdoms story you will be able to see what the requirements are. If you want to know them now there is an outstanding guide here:
Not made by me, all glory goes to Wynter.
Upgraded all skills to Level 10 or higher.
You have to get all of the skills to at least level 10. You can see the requirements for upgrading skills in the skill list. Most of them come by just playing but some of them are somewhat harder. All of them are pretty straight forward except maybe Fortune Hunter but the K.O. count above certain level is 1500 K.O.s, after that your skill will increase by killing officers. The amount of officers needed for each skill level appears to be random.
Here is the list of all of the skills:
Friends to the End
Formed a bond at the maximum level with another officer.
To max out a bond you have to select one officer as your bodyguard in ambition mode. Then after every three battles they will talk with you which will further increase your bond. After 9 battles they will summon you for the third and final time and then bond is maxed. You will now the bond is at max when they have 2 support skills instead of 1.
You can select bodyguard from pause>officer info>select bodyguard.
Destroyed a total of 1,000 siege weapons.
You have to destroy total of 1000 siege weapons across all of the modes. The best way is to use the method in this video as there is infinite spawn of siege weapons. The stage is Battle of Baidi Castle (Wei forces, hypothetical route final) and is unlocked after playing it in Wei story mode.
Had a new facility built in Ambition Mode.
This comes naturally when you start to play Ambition mode.
Had a facility expanded in Ambition Mode.
You can expand facilities with facility materials. Once you have expanded any facility to lvl 10 you’ll get this achievement.
Death from Above
Defeated an enemy after juggling them in the air for at least 10 seconds.
Easiest to be done with Zhuge Liang. Equip him with 2 of his Fan weapons then try to get the enemy officer in the corner or at least next to a wall. Then use his switch attack to make a small whirlwind, keep hitting RB to switch weapons and you will do whirlwinds that keep the enemy in the air. After 10 seconds the achievement should pop. I recommend Normal or Hard difficulty so the enemy doesn’t die before the 10 seconds are up.
Used a True Rage Attack.
You will get this in tutorial as it teaches you all of the basics of the game.
In an Instant
Defeated 3 enemy officers with a Storm Rush in a single battle.
In DW 8 you have a new 3-point system Heaven>Earth>Man>Heaven:
And when you use a weapon that has advantage over your enemies they will have a blue crystal above their heads. When you attack them the crystal will broke piece by piece and when it’s all done you trigger Storm Rush where your officer launches a flurry of attacks that will suck all nearby enemies in it. You have to use this to kill 3 officers in a row for this achievement.
