Achievement Guide & Roadmap

Overview:
Estimated achievement difficulty: 2/10 for 190, 4/10 for 200
Offline: 12/12 (200)
Online: 0/12 (0)
Approximate amount of time to 200: 3-5 Hours (Provided you boost the 103 wins for 'Warlords Fever')
Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1 (No mission specific achievements)
Missable achievements: None
Does difficulty affect achievements?: No
Unobtainable/glitched achievements: None
Extra equipment needed?: 3 Extra controllers and 3 extra profiles for "Control Freak"

Introduction:
Warlords HD is an Action-Strategy game in which you need to defend your castle while at the same time trying to destroy the opposing castle. It is a fun arcade game and definitely worth picking up. There is a campaign mode where you will be acquiring the majority of the achievements or else you can unlock them in the 'Quick Match' mode. One of the achievements requires playing in a 4-player game, but you can do this yourself if you happen to have 4 controllers at hand.

You can see how far you are along with some of the achievements by going into the 'Help & Options' menu from the main menu and then selecting 'Change Tags'. This is where you change your 'Tag' that is a picture of sorts, that you can unlock by fulfilling various tasks. Here it will tell you how many of each 'Stat' you have completed and you can use this to see how far along you are with each of the miscellaneous achievements. This however is not true of all of the achievements as the tracking is only for certain activities, so for some achievements you will be completely in the dark with until you unlock them.

The reason i gave this a 2/10 difficulty rating for 190 and a 4/10 for the full 200 is because 11 of the 12 achievements can be obtained through 'Quick Match' mode using multiple controllers, making them very easy, but the campaign can be rather difficult in places and there is no difficulty options, so it may take more patience to complete for some.

Step 1: Campaign
You will likely be earning the majority of the achievements while playing through the campaign. There are no mission specific achievements and you can earn them in any of the missions, provided you met the requirements. At the end of each mission you will be shown a results page detailing all the enemies you killed and the walls you destroyed and/or repaired, along with other stats. This will give you some indication of how close you are to unlocking the achievements. The achievements will unlock as soon as you meet the requirements and not only after completing the missions.

Step 2: Clean up
If for whatever reason you haven't unlocked the miscellaneous achievements during the campaign, you can set up a quick match on the 'Easy' difficulty and have as many A.I. players as you wish, up to 4 or have more than 1 controller connected and be in control of all of the teams. This will make it extremely easy to obtain and/or boost all of the miscellaneous achievements. You can choose to do this from the start to obtain 11 of the 12 achievements and then just complete the campaign for the final achievement afterwards.

Conclusion:
Warlords HD is a fun Strategic Action game, well worth picking up along with easy enough achievements. They are mostly miscellaneous achievements and can mostly be unlocked through local quick matches.

Achievement Guide:

Just Barely 20
Win a game with no wall segments left

You have your walls destroyed by the enemy when they attack with their troops or when you fail to deflect a fireball and it hits your wall. Eventually, after a segment of wall has taken enough damage it will be destroyed. After all of your wall segments have been destroyed, your warlord will be exposed and if he takes a hit with a fireball, the game will be over and you will have lost the match.

You can do this in a quick match and have a second controller connected to make it somewhat more manageable. Use this setup;

Mode: 1 on 1
Stage: Random (This is not important)
Fireballs: 1
AI: Easy

I personally did this against the easy A.I., but it would be even easier to have a second controller connected. When the match begins use your main controller to grab the fireball with and keep hold of it until your wall is destroyed. After you have grabbed the fireball, use the second controller and press to send the enemies troops to attack your wall. Then sit patiently until the enemy troops have completely destroyed your entire castle walls, at which point have them move away from your castle and still using the second controller, move the shield away to the side of the castle. Then with your main controller, release the fire ball directly at the center of the enemy castle and it should bounce back in a straight line back to your shield. Grab it again and repeat until you have destroyed a piece of the enemies wall, at which point send the fireball into the gap you have created in the enemy wall and it will hit the enemy warlord and win you the match.

The achievement will unlock upon winning the match.

An Eye For An Eye 10
Destroy 50 troops using only your troops

To destroy enemy troops with your troops, you need to move your 'Rally Troop' into the area of the enemy 'Rally Troop' or just the enemy troops and your troops will attack them. When your troops attack the enemy troops, they will die along with them. This will likely unlock through normal game progression.

You can unlock this during a quick match and have a second controller connected to make this achievement extremely easy.

To unlock this achievement, you need to send your troops to their death by having them attack and kill the enemy troops 50 times.

Divine Intervention 10
Get the White Knight Shield 50 times

The White Knight shield will appear on the field of battle when the Black Knight spawns. The Black Knight spawns at random and will attack everyone and everything on the battlefield. Just after the Black Knight spawns a floating white shield will spawn and you need to move your 'Rally Troop' over the white shield to pick it up. This will give you immunity to the Black Knights attacks.

You can unlock this during a quick match and have a second controller connected to make this achievement extremely easy.

Pick up 50 of these shields and the achievement is yours.

Defender Of The Weak 20
Banish the Black Knight 50 times

The Black Knight is an enemy that will spawn at random during matches. He will take over all of the rally points, turning them yellow and begin to attack anything on the field. To help defend against him, you should try to acquire the 'White Knight Shield' before your opponents to give you immunity to his attacks.

To banish the Black Knight, you need to take over all of the rally points on the field. To do this you need to move your Rally Troop over one of the rally points and your troops will begin turning it back to your color. Take over all of the rally points that the Black Knight has turned yellow and upon taking the final rally point the Black Knight will be banished. Be careful not to rid the field of the Black Knight through damage as this does not count as a 'Banish' and thus does not count towards this achievement.

You can unlock this during a quick match and have a second controller connected to make this achievement extremely easy.

Banish 50 of these Black Knights and the achievement is yours.

Power Is Everything 20
Obtain 50 powerups

To obtain powerups you need to take over 'Rally Points'. To take over rally points you need to manoeuvre your Rally Troop over the rally point and wait until your troops have descended on the rally point and sacrificed themselves on it. After enough time and sacrifices the rally point will be yours along with the powerup that it offers.

You can unlock this during a quick match and have a second controller connected to make this achievement extremely easy.

Obtain 50 powerups by taking over 50 rally points and the achievement is yours.

Savior of Ataria 10
Complete the single player campaign

Story related, cannot be missed.

To unlock this achievement you need to complete the 8 missions that make up the single player campaign.

Master Mason 10
Repair 50 wall segments back to full health

To repair your wall segments, you need to have your own troops repair them. To do this you can either position your Rally Troop near your own wall where your troops will then follow. Have them idle and they will automatically start repairing your walls. Alternatively, you can press and your troops will return to your walls and begin to repair them.

You can unlock this during a quick match and have a second controller connected to make this achievement extremely easy.

Repair 50 of your wall segments back to 100% health and the achievement is yours.

Siege Engine 10
Destroy 50 wall segments using only troops

To destroy enemy wall segments with your troops you can either position your Rally Troop near the enemy wall where your troops will then follow. Having them idle there will cause them to automatically attack the enemy walls. Alternatively, you can press and your troops will move to the enemy walls and begin to attack them.

You can unlock this during a quick match and have a second controller connected to make this achievement extremely easy.

Completely destroy 50 of the enemies walls with just your troops and the achievement is yours.

Control Freak 20
Own all Control Points at the same time in a 4 player game

To own a control point you need to position your Rally Troop over one of them. Your troops will then follow and when they reach the rally point that your Rally Troop is standing on, they will sacrifice themselves which will begin the takeover of the rally point. After enough time and sacrifice the rally point will be yours.

To unlock this achievement you need to be in a 4-player game and have control of all 4 of the rally points at the same time. You can try for this through playing the campaign, which would be rather difficult or you can set up a local 4-player game, provided you have 4 controllers and have your profile take over the 4 rally points, making for a quick and painless achievement.

Fish In A Barrel 10
Destroy 50 troops using only fireballs

During matches a Dragon will swoop down and let fireballs loose on the battlefield. You can deflect this away from your castle with a shield that you have control over with .

You need to grab a fireball when it hits your shield by pressing allowing you to grab it and charge it up for a power shot, to kill an enemy troop. You can move your shield while holding the fireball so that you can aim it where you please. This will allow you to aim at the enemy troops directly. Normal fireballs will not hurt the enemy troops, so you need to kill 50 of them with a charged shot fireball.

You can unlock this during a quick match and have a second controller connected to make this achievement extremely easy.

Cause the death of 50 enemy troops with fireballs and the achievement is yours.

Breakout 10
Destroy 50 wall segments using only fireballs

During matches a Dragon will swoop down and let fireballs loose on the battlefield. You can deflect this away from your castle with a shield that you have control over with the .

If a fireball hits a segment of any castle wall, friend or foe, it will damage it. After taking enough damage, wall segments will be destroyed. This will likely come through normal game progression, but you can attempt to affect the direction of the fireballs with the way you deflect it if you wish. You can also grab a fireball when it hits your shield by pressing allowing you to grab it and charge it up for a power shot. You can move your shield while holding the fireball so that you can aim it where you please. This also does a lot more damage than the regular fireball so you only need to do this a few times to destroy a wall segment.

A good mission to boost this is the very first mission of the single player campaign. There are 4 players and the only goal is to destroy the enemies castles and the only means to do this is with the fireballs that the Dragon drops. I personally destroyed 17 wall segments in a single match, so boosting this here, although ultimately unnecessary due to the ease of unlocking this achievement through normal game progression, will make this very quick and easy.

You can unlock this during a quick match and have a second controller connected to make this achievement extremely easy.

Destroy 50 enemy wall segments with fireballs and the achievement is yours.

Warlords Fever 50
Win 103 matches

As simple as it sounds, you need to win 103 matches. You win matches by destroying the enemies castles and then hitting their Warlord with a fireball. All of the matches that you win count towards this, except for the tutorial match and you can set up local 2-player games in the quick match game type and have the second controller idle while you win the match with your main account. Doing this will still take some time, but it is likely the quickest way of getting this achievement done.

Go to multiplayer from the main menu, then local match and choose these options;

Mode: 1 on 1
Stage: Random (This is not important)
Fireballs: 1
AI: Easy

Then on the next page sign in a second account and have them join as player 2. When the match begins, move the second players shield to one side of the castle and grab the fireball with your main controller. Aim directly at the center of the second players castle with a charged shot and the fireball will bounce back directly at your shield. Grab the fireball again and repeat this until you breach the second players wall, at which point send the fireball into the gap, winning the match.

This takes roughly 30-45 seconds to get a win and is undoubtedly the quickest way of boosting this achievement. Upon winning your 103rd match the achievement will unlock.
