-Approximate amount of time to 1000: 10-15 hours
-Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1 (2 Recommended)
-Number of missable achievements: None
-Do cheat codes disable achievements? No cheats
-Does difficulty affect achievements? Yes
-Glitched achievements: None
-Unobtainable achievements: None

Introduction
The First Templar is one of the easy 1000 games around. You play as Caelian a Templar who goes on quest in search for the Holy Grail. The story unfolds in 22 chapters with areas ranging from ancient temples to Swamps to cities like Acre. Those who love to get more information on Templars and their power are going to like this much more than others. The Game itself is not bad and can be played single or Co-operatively with a partner online.

Most of the achievements can be earned on the first playthough of the game and if you miss anything there is always a chapter select.

The game has three difficulty levels. Causal, Normal and Hard. I recommend playing it on Hard straight away as this game is very easy for the most part even on Hard. While playing get as many collectibles as possible and complete as many bonus objectives as possible so that your level replays can be minimized.

Speaking of collectibles there are only two types. One is the Templar Chronicles and the other one is Chests which contains outfits and weapons. I am not going to write a collectible guide as they are very easy to find. They are even indicated as white markers in the mini map so no guide is required for it. If anyone else is writing one then you are welcome.

A neat walkthrough for the whole game is here , refer this if you have problems with collectibles
Step 1:
Playthrough the game on Hard difficulty and gain all but 4 achievements which are meant for online. There are 22 levels in total and it should roughly take 10-12 hours to complete.

Step 2:
Start a new game with Xbox live connected and select the online game option as everyone. Then playthough the game again to get all the 4 online achievements. As you have already completed the game once this should be a very fast run of the game. With a partner around it the game should not take more than 5-6 hours to complete. But keep in mind thought that you have to level up and distribute skills for your partner as the game doesn’t allow guests to level up.

But if you are lazy to playthough twice, you can couple step1 and step2 and start an online game on Hard straight away and still get all the achievements.

Templar Knight 20
Completed all levels on Casual or higher difficulty

Templar Master 30
Completed all levels on Normal or higher difficulty
Refer Templar Grand Master

Templar Grand Master 50
Completed all levels on Hard difficulty
Start out the game on HARD as it is not difficult at all. The only tricky part is the Duel sections where the opponent can get tough. But they follow the same pattern of attacks which makes it easy to understand and react.

Collectibles

Chronicles of the Temple 50
Found all Templar Chronicles
These are stone tablets that are found throughout the game. There are 42 in total to be found. Find them all to unlock this achievement. Most of them are straight forward and can be found with little or no effort. The collectibles in the game are indicated in mini map by a white 'x' icon.

Refer this channel if you are having trouble

Wardrobe 30
Found all collectible outfits in the game
There are chests scattered throughout game. The outfits can be found in these chests. Most of them are pretty easy to find except a few for which a treasure clue has to be discovered which is indicated by a white glow. The chests are indicated on the mini map with a white 'x' icon.

Arsenal 30
Found all collectible weapons in the game
There are chests scattered throughout game. The weapons can be found in these chests. Most of them are pretty easy to find except a few for which a treasure clue has to be discovered which is indicated by a white glow. The chests are indicated on the mini map with a white 'x' icon.

Treasure-hunter 20
Discovered all chests in a single level
Can be done on anywhere but easiest on first level. Just follow the white markers on mini map and it canít be missed

Objective Based

Thorough 20
Completed all Bonus Objectives in a single level
Can be done on any level but easiest on first level. Just follow the blue marker on mini map and it canít be missed. Each level has a maximum of 3 bonus objectives.

Dedicated 40
Completed all Bonus Objectives on all levels
Every level has a bonus objective ranging from 1 to 3 per level. Most of them are easy expect a few tricky ones. If you find any of these to be difficult just tone down the difficulty to casual. One of the bonus objectives at level La Rochelle can be overlooked easily.
Refer this thread for more info

Combat Based

Bull Rush 20
Hit 4 enemies at the same time with your Charge Attack
Get improved charge or powerful charge skill for Caelian and press and hold onto a group of enemies and this should unlock. There are many places where you will face more than 4 enemies. I got mine in siege of acre

Whirlwind Strike 20
Hit 4 enemies at the same time with your All-around Attack.
Same as above. But you need cyclone Hit skill for Caelian to unlock this. Once you have the skill, get 4 enemies surround you and then press + to get this

Destructive 15
Smashed 5 enemy shields
There are lots of enemies who will hold a shield. Just press and hold for a charged attack and it should shatter the shield. Repeat 5 times to get this.


Executor 30
Finished 30 fallen enemies
When you fight enemies, they can be knocked out and they will be on ground with their heads lifted up. Press immediately to finish them off. Repeat 30 times to get this. Use Zealot strike with Caelian or Sweep skill + with Marie on weaker enemies to get a guaranteed knockdown.



What Was That? 20
Stealth killed a noise distracted enemy
Story related and canít be missed as the game directs you to do it on Siege of Acre level

Look out below! 20
Killed an enemy by knocking him from a ledge
There are many places where you can get. Siege of Acre is the first place where you can get this. Do a charged attack on an enemy standing close to a ledge or a do Zealot Strike and he will fall off the ledge

Long Ranged 20
Killed 20 enemies with a ranged attack
Can be done only with Marie. Once you have throw skill unlocked for Marie, switch characters by pressing to select Maire. Then beat up enemies as you normally would. Weaker enemies should take 2 hits while the stronger enemies should take atleast 4 hits. Then back off and press to do a long range attack and kill them. If you throw a dagger before 2 or 4 hits they only get knocked down and will not be killed. Each throw costs a zeal orb so make sure to fill up the zeal orb before performing a ranged attack

The Duelist 30
Won a duel
Story related and can’t be missed

Silent and deadly 20
Performed 50 stealth kills
Approaching an enemy from behind pressing and when you get close enough press to do a stealth kill. Repeat 50 times. There are many places to perform stealth kills. So it should unlock towards the end of the game.


Not a Scratch 20
Killed 5 enemies in less than a minute without taking damage
This should be the first achievement you unlock in the game right at the beginning. It should come in without even trying.

Fight back 25
Successfully performed 10 countermoves
You should unlock counter skill for your character which is in the left side of the skill tree. Once you have the skill, press at the moment the enemy strikes you can you should do a counter attack. Repeat 10 times. You just have to perform a counter and need not have to kill with a counter to get this.

Misc. Achievements

Watch Your Step 10
Disarmed a bear trap
You will encounter your first bear trap on second level "The Misty Forest". It’s more likely that you will step foot and trigger one this level and the game gives you direction on how to disarm one. To see a trap press to look around and the trap will be indicated as a glow on floor. Press to disarm the trap.


Down, boy! 15
Saved your partner from a dog attack
You will fight lot of dogs in second level. You AI partner will be lunged by a dog and he should be struggling on ground fighting the dog. Just kill the dog by pressing when the dog is attacking you partner and this will unlock.

No Stone Unturned 10
Destroyed a breakable wall
The first breakable wall can be found at 3rd level. There is a track which you have to trace to light a brazier. Just a few steps ahead of this brazier is a breakable wall. Press to highlight the wall and then to destroy the wall.

Juggernaut 15
Advanced a character to 5 Health Orbs
You gain XP when you kill enemies. When you have enough XP press back button and then to choose the skills menu. Invest points on Toughness skill. Best done with the character Ronald as he will have toughness skill on all four sides of the skill tree. Also less XP points are required with Ronald compared to other characters. You will need 4000XP points for Ronald to get this.


Vigor 20
Advance a character to 5 Zeal Orbs
Same as Health orbs. This time do it with the lead character Caelian as he has more skills related to Zeal and can be quickly done with him. You will need around 9000XP points in total to get this.

Miracle Worker 20
Used the "Revive" action to help your teammate
You will most likely get this on Second level when you fight the boss. There is an 80 percent chance that your partner will lose all his health during the battle. Press to revive your partner. But you will need the revive skill first to do this. It costs 1000XP. There are many more battles where your partner will die so this is unmissalbe.

Observant 20
Discovered with a clue
Unmissable as the game notifies you of a clue during the second level. Just follow the marker where the clue leads and this should unlock.

Healing hands 20
Healed your partner
You have to acquire mass prayer skill for Caelian to unlock this. This skill is located at the very bottom on the bottom side of the skill tree. Once you have it press + when the partner is near you

Charge! 15
Acquired all Charge skills for Caelian
This is located on the right side of Caelianís skill tree. There are 3 skills to be acquired. Charge, Powerful Charge and Improved Charge

Daggermistress 15
Acquired all Dagger throw skills for Marie
This is located on the right side of Marie's skill tree. There are 3 skills to be acquired. Throw, Powerful throw and Improved throw



Team Tactics 20
Killed an enemy grabbed by the other character
You need grab skill for either Ronald or Caelian to unlock this. After acquiring the skill just switch to Marie and play the game. Itís most likely that AI controlled Caelian will have an enemy grabbed from behind. Just attack the grabbed enemy and he should die unlocking the achievement. If you have trouble this can be done easily in online coop with a friend.


Siege Operator 30
Killed all opposing squads with a siege weapon
There are two places to do this. First in the city of Acre where you get hold of a Trebuchet and again in the fifth level Siege of Acre. All you have to this kill every enemy and siege towers with a trebuchet. Press to fire and speed up reload and to aim. Itís a part of bonus objective so if you are going for Dedicated achievement then this should come in naturally

No escape 25
A fleeing enemy was killed with a siege weapon by you or your partner
Same as above. When you are using trebuchet, some enemies will flee for their life. Just aim for them and kill them.



Just a Flesh wound 25
Finished a whole level without both characters dropping below 1 Health Orb
Easiest done in first level on casual difficulty. Your health orb should not drop at all for this. Say if you have 5 health orbs at the beginning of a level, it should remain 5 till the end. Even if one orb falls the achievement wonít unlock. Also can be done at Templar tunnels level as there are no enemies to face on the entire level. Just avoid traps and stick to main objective and this can be a cakewalk

Pyromaniac 10
Set 50 objects on fire
You get your first opportunity to burn things on Templar tunnels level. Just light every Brazier on this level and you should have 30/50 on this level alone. There are also bonus objectives which require you to burn things. You should have this unlocked at the very last level where you have light up braziers again

Expert Tracker 15
Successfully tracked 20 trails to their end
Trails are indicated by white footsteps on the mini map. When you see one press to look around and a series of footsteps will lead you to a treasure or clue. Repeat 20 times to get this. Should come in towards the end of the game as there are more than 20 trails to be found in the game.

Online

Strength of Two 20
Finished a level in an online multiplayer game
Self-explanatory. Just complete a level in online CO-OP


A Friend Indeed 30
Finished all levels in the campaign in multiplayer online mode
Just finish every level online. But not sure how the game saves the progress, so itís better to start and host a game online rather than joining others game.

Well-Traveled 20
Completed 5 levels in online multiplayer with different partners
To get this you have to the host and others should join your game. Only then the game counts the level. If you join others game, the counter will never go beyond 1/5

A Friend in Need 15
Played in an online multiplayer game with one of your Xbox LIVE friends
Has to be done with a friend. Join a game and send a friend request hoping he would accept. Or post in Achievement trading thread.

Excellent start mate, well done for stepping up.

I found a Let's Play walkthrough yesterday on Youtube. Seems to show the locations of all bonus objectives, chests and Templar Chronicles, if you can stomach the guy's voice. Maybe you could use 'em for the guide:

Jesus, that guy is really annoying.

I started writing a collectible guide for this game but got halfway through before deciding it is completely unneeded.

Also for the online; it NEVER saves when you are the guest. so if u do one level and back out, its like you never did it. so you NEED to be host for Well Traveled and if you both want the coop story complete then you must do it in one sitting.

Another thing to add, personally i found it way easier to do easy 1st then do Hard with my fully upgraded duo of characters. made the game a breeze.

Playing the Arena Dlc 1st will also give you a nice boost in xp to start the game out with.

For the collectibles not ALL of them show as a white x or ? area on the map. some of them dont show up until you find the clue.

Im curious also why does the difficulty state 2/10 offline 4/10 online? whats the difference

I think, while yes it is an easy 1250, that 2/10 is a little low. If you consider Avatar is 1/10 and NBA 2K6 is 2/10... I would say this game is harder than NBA 2K6. I think the 4/10 you have for the online part is spot on. 3/10 at the very least.


Good start on the guide anyway, saves me the trouble . Hopefully you will find my input useful

Thanks a lot for your inputs and comments. Well yes initially i gave a 3/10 and then decided to go for a 2. why because all of the achievements including the collectible ones will come naturally while playing the game without even trying. I mean you dont even have to keep a check on what achievements are done and to be done etc. Its just like play the game and take away 44 achievements! I gave a 4 for online because of well traveled and strength of two. When the servers are deserted at this early stage of the game imagine the state of servers a few months or even weeks down the line. It would be impossible to get these without a friend. Even now i was not able to get well traveled and strength of two because of lack of players. So the high score of 4 is just to indicate that

Funnily, I helped a guy to do his Well Traveled achievement and it seems he had already all the collectibles collected (I did not yet) and when he read one of the tablets, all three collectible achievements popped for me as well (tables, weapons, clothes). So I have them already even though I still miss some pieces... - I will sell the game @1085 points, was good fun, but no way I am gonna play it through once again...

You will never get this without a friend. Its not just anyone as partner, it should be a person from your friends list who you should play with. Just invite one of your friend to a game and as soon as he steps in the achievement will unlock.

If you dont have a friend who has this game, post a req in achievement trading thread and there are people who will help you get this

It took a few tries for me but its very very easy if you have maxed out your charge ability. Just block run block run and repeat until your zeal orbs are full. then hit him with a charge attack (RB) until you run out of zeal orbs and then repeat the same. also try to give a few hits when u try for the block run routine

What Was That? IS missable, whether the game directs you to do it or not. Would be nicer if you had the story achievemnts in order of collecting them. Also check your spelling, especially the character names. Thanks for your efforts

Game is not 2/10 in difficulty. You can miss a lot of things if you don't do certain things. I would put that number if you just have to finish the levels but it is not the case, there are lot of optional stuff to do and collection that if you are in a rush you will miss it.

Some optional / bonus objectives are very tricky, like the stealth in the Marauder camp and other later when you don't have to be noticed. Most of them are easy if you have a human partner but sometimes the AI tends to do more or less what you do (and it fails)

Same here for me. Stealth in Marauder Camp was VERY HARD for me... especially as you try to fulfill the bonus objective to kill all troops (as Iīm not very skilled at all)

Curious, why is online harder than single player?

Just got well traveled achievement.

I kept seeing a lot of guides that kept saying you had to be host to get it but it unlocked for me after joining a random guys match and finishing the level. I did host a few matches so not sure if you can get just by joining random matches but that's how I got it. Just thought I would share for anyone else having trouble.

Also, when I was hosting and inviting people in I would do it on different levels and wait for them to join at the beginning of the level then do load last checkpoint.

Achievement could also just be glitched which seems the most likely case since from reading forums there are all sorts of ways people have earned this. Some said they got it just playing three people. Anyway, good luck.

Started playing this a couple of night ago. What's the DLC like? Is it just fighting wave after wave of enemies? I'm quite enjoying the main game so far.

Same here, just got the game a few nights ago and am having a great time so far. The DLC was included in the version I purchased from Wal Mart, so I'll download it sometime this week and let you know if it's worth the 400 points. By the way, if you want to play online sometime add me so we can get the Friend in Need achievement!

next time you write a achievement guide why dont you try to get the difficulty correct. most people have had problems with the general muzaffar on hard. its hardly a 2 difficulty. more like a 4 for offline.

It's not obvious from the guide, but you can do the Templar Grand Master achievement for Hard difficulty from Chapter Select once your game is done. The advantage here is that your skill tree is maxed so the game will be much easier.

I followed the guide and started my game on hard. Got to the point of the duel with Muzzaffer and gave up, switching the difficulty to Normal. I should have switched to Easy but I wasn't thinking. Use Easy to do the whole game, and mop up all the collectible achievements, then just use Chapter Select with difficulty on Hard and go through the levels again. Achievement just popped for me using that approach.

Other tips: use the X+A combo to knock the guys down as much as you can and follow up with the finisher move B while they are down. Makes a lot of battles easier.

Also, for the end of Marauder Camp, I ended up leading the enemy back a bit, into the blowdart traps. That thinned their ranks in a hurry
