You only need the characters from the starter pack to 1K the game, same as as it was with the first one.

Having more characters does make the game easier to complete though.

Maybe I am reading the achievement wrong, but chapter one you have to open all elemental areas. How do you do that with starter pack, there is no "undead" element or whatever. Thanks for any help.

Found the answer. The starter pack has cynder. I got the portal owner pack. Their marketing is slick. Now I have to find a skylander to get in the "undead" area.

Pro: Lightcore characters release a shockwave the first time they are summoned into a level. Handy if your last Skylander was completely surrounded when it was taken out, but that's it.

Con: Lightcore characters don't get a Wow Pow, which is an extra attack/ability awarded to series 2 figures. So if you're buying Jet Vac, Chill, Pop Fizz, or Shroomboom, no big deal. They don't get Wow Pow's, anyways. But repeats from Spyro's Adventures, such as Eruptor, Hex, Prism Break, and Drobot, you're missing out on an extra ability for buying Lightcore instead of Series 2.

Also: It's completely possible to FC this game with only three characters so long as the three characters are; 1 air, 1 life, and 1 undead, and one of the three must be a giant. Although, the more figures you buy, the easier the game gets for many reasons.
