When did you get that side quest? Does she approach you or is it just a contract with request to pick?

Is it possible to miss it and not be able to go back to it?

I believe it's a Gossip event so you usually wont miss it after being made aware of it from Karen.

People report playing 100 hours or so before they got the final book.

Has anyone actually got either of the Secret Achievements? Specifically, has anyone even got a vague inkling of where the Book of Engineers is?

You need to get your Swords / Spears / Horses to 100% and everything else to 70%, at this point you can get the last book

wait are you suggesting that you know this is the requirements or is it based on your experience from playing and you believe this is what you did to get it?

woot it seems it is true, i got it after i got at least 70% in all the books and it came immediately after the mission. the memo given in the diary states being recognized by the divine archer so it might be 100% bows instead of horse or maybe both as i had both maxed already.

Why does no one have 1000 for this game, according to mgc.net?

Because it's long and most people don't have the secret books, they just got the info from people who got them on the PS3 version.

Thanks. Considering getting this game, but seeing that 950 mademe think there were glitched achievements.

I can confirm that to get the Engineering book, you must get 100% in the three main books (Swords, Bows and Horses) and then 70% in all other books. After I did that, I played one more battle and then the Avatar of War visited me at the tavern and gave me the Engineering book.

Also, I had not yet completed all of the "!" missions. I did finish the game but post-game I hadn't finished all of those extra required missions. I have read that eventually you end up with a "Special Battle", and its possible you can no longer get the Engineering book if you get to that point but someone else would have to confirm that. I'd suggest getting all books above 70% and the main 3 to 100% before doing all of the ! missions after you "finish" the game.

Nice! Congrats on 1000!

I'm still considering checking this out, but it seems like it'll be way longer than a rental.

Maybe I'll pick it up when I get KUF next week.

Does it make any difference whose contracts you take early on in the game? IE do you need to pick a side and do mostly their quests or can you do some French quests and some English quests. Will it make any difference in the story if you don't take a particular side?

I would have liked to have seen some achievements based on Combo kills, like scoring 100/150/200 kill combos. Achievements based on the number of points scored in a particular mission would have been nice. I would have liked achievements for killing every special Leader on the battlefield during a battle.

I agree. It would be nice to have some more variety in the achievements. I have done some achievements from this game. But the fact that the others will take quite some time and the monotomy of it is putting me off. I think I won't be touching this game in the near future.
