Achievement Guide and Road Map (Inlcuding DLC)





Overview:

- Estimated achievement difficulty: 5/10
- Offline: 39 (945 )
- Online: 5(55)
- Approximate time for 1000 : 30 Hours
- Minimum number of playthroughs needed for completion: 1 + Achievement Trading and Cleanup
- Number of missable achievements: 12
- Glitchy achievements: Enduring Champion, Merchant of Ehb


Introduction:

Welcome to Dungeon Siege III, the game that should have had a different title, as it is nothing like its predecessors. Regardless it is a very fun game to play and is a relatively easy game to get the 44 achievements for 1000. This game has what is commonly referred to as “Fable 2 Co-op”. What this means is that when you join someone’s game you play as their secondary characters with their stats and equipment, and most importantly for achievements, at their stage in the game. This can be used to trade almost every single achievement in the game, so make sure you make use of the Achievement Trading Thread!

Step 1: First Play Through

First off it is suggested you just run through the game on Normal, as this is good practice for Hardcore, but you can choose to just use Casual if you'd just like an easy run. If you think you're up to it you can simply attempt Hardcore straight away, and use the save points below to change the difficulty to easy to get the missables, but I highly recommend you familiarize yourself with the game first. As with most RPG's, we all have our own playing styles and thus the best character selection is based of your own playing style. On this play through, you should try to complete every secondary quest, collect over 60 lore and max out your charisma with a character to obtain Perfectionist, Lore master and Maximum Charisma. Below is a list of places to keep saves at, as you will be able to come back here later to obtain missable achievements that you may not have obtained. The saves before the main bosses can also be used to obtain Two Girls, One Boss or Maximum Bro Fist and I Could Do This Blindfolded.

~Before making a decision about the Gunderic Manor – One achievement for each decision.

~Before the fight with Rajani – Rajini’s Rival
~At level 19 – So you can trade the level 20 achievements.
~Before the fight with the Dapper Old Gent – Archambaud’s Anathema
~Before the boss fight in the Glitterdelve Mine - Can be used to trade Royalist Ally if you have done the prerequisites for it.
~
At the Spire Entrance - Liberator
~Before the second Jeyne Kassynder fight – Moment of Solace
~Before the Final Boss (Not the auto-save) – Flawless Victory and View From the Top
~Keep the final boss auto-save - Can be used to trade for the achievements to beat the game as each character.

Step 2: Hardcore Difficulty

Unless you decided to do your first playthrough in this difficulty, it is now your next step. Hopefuly after playing through the game, you will have learnt your characters abilites and how to use them to your advantage, as well as how to dodge and block specific attacks. The reason I say this is beacuse unlike a lot of games out now, this difficulty is actually hard.The general mobs in this game aren’t that hard, as you can always run away when needed. The bosses however will be the problem, as you are constricted to their small area. Simply try it a few times to work out a method that works for you, and if it is proving too difficult, you’ll need to go back and level up a bit more to make it easier on yourself. The only boss that I would think is actually extremely hard in this game is the same boss fight many players find themselves stuck at, the first fight with Jeyne Kassynder. Make sure you have the best possible gear from the shop in the East Garden, and are at the maximum level for the time of 27. It took my friend and I around 4-5 hours to conquer this fight using many different methods, so don't give up! It is easy going from then on.

Step 3: Cleanup

There are a few achievements that require simple cleaning up tactics to achieve, such as the conversation ones and Merchant of Ehb. If you follow the achievement guide you should find it easy enough to obtain the last ones. For the other character specific achievements, you can trade them by joining a game either at level 19 or at the last boss respectively as the character you need the achievement as, then just fulfil it. If you need help with them, simply go to the achievement trading thread here at x360a and help out and get help from other fellow gamers! Or if you do not have Live, you can use a playthrough on a second account (Does not need to be Gold or even Silver) as the same character you played through on your main account, and use local gameplay to trade with yourself.

Achievements

Perfectionist - 100
You completed your quest, plus all other secondary quests in the game.


The secondary achievements in this game can be missed, if you do not do them correctly. It is not that you can easily miss doing them, it is simply that if you do not hand them in before continuing the main quest you can make it impossible to finish it (So make sure you hand them in before continuing the main quests!). Main quests are un-missable.

Elyoh's Gamercard
Maximum Charisma - 15
You achieved the highest possible influence with one of your companions.


When having conversations, you will get a few options to choose from. Some options will give you positive influence with specific members of your squad, and you will want to aim to fill up the influence of just one of your squad members. You will also gain influence for completing quests with that companion.

There is a glitch almost at the very end of the game which you can use to max out your influence with one or all of your squad. After defeating Jeyne, you will end up back at the Legion chapter house. After travelling down stairs and towards the East Forest, you will be greeted by a cut scene of some burning debris falling behind you to prevent you from going backwards. You will be standing next to a save, and will have two doors in front of you that you must go through to get outside. Save the game and then travel through the doors, to which you will be greeted by kind words from your companion and gain influence with them. Head back to the save and save again - reload it and head through the door again, making sure to spam RB so that it closes and opens again. Save again and repeat until you have full influence with your companion. - Thank PS3 player Frogcat for figuring this out!

Show Off – 25
You’ve paraded about in nothing but rare items


There are 4 different types of items;

White – Common
Green – Uncommon
Blue – Rare
Orange – Ultimate

Just make sure every item you are wearing is Blue or Orange, including a ring and amulet. You will probably get this without realising it later on in the game, but if you don't, there are plenty of shops later on that sell lots of rare and ultimate equipment.

Worthy of Legend – 100
You completed Dungeon Siege III at the highest difficulty level.


This is the hardest achievement in the game. The simplest way to get this is to find a friendly gamer who has a save at the end of the game on this difficulty and beat it with them. Overall, this just requires some dedication to beating it, and accepting that it will take you many hours. The only battle that I consider “Near to impossible” is the first fight with Jeyne, as you get overwhelmed way too quick. Practice, practice, practice! Remember to level up if you are finding something too hard.

We Are Legion – 10
You have gathered a full party of Legion descendants.


You will get this achievement after getting your last party member in Stonebridge. The first two characters will be obtained auotmatically. To get the third, when you are in stonebridge get all of the quests from the Meisters. One of them will be to deal with the Krug in the prision in the same bulding, do this quick quest and the third member will appear. This will not work if you have people playing in your game as characters you haven’t gathered yet.

Circle of Friends – 15
You achieved at least one level of influence with all three of your companions.


You should find you unlock this achievement after just playing through the game. If you haven’t got “Friend” status with a certain character, then use them as your companion to gain more influence with them. It shouldn’t come down to that though in an overall playthrough.

Archambaud’s Anathema – 20
During your fight against the Dapper Old Gent, you destroyed 50 of his Automatons.


This is very easy to achieve, as he continually spawns these automatons over the whole battle and they are very easy to destroy. The achievement unlocks after defeating him, so just make sure you’re well over 50 before you finish the battle.

Moment of Solace – 20
Force Jeyne to flee before defeating her handmaids.


During the second round with Jeyne, you will fight her with two of her handmaids. All you need to do is go for Jeyne until she flees, without killing the other two first. This is very easy to achieve when you’re going for it. You will get the achievement the moment she flees.

Rajani’s Rival – 20
You bested Rajani without needing to heal yourself.


This is the first major boss battle that you will encounter. My advice is to level up first on enemies to make the fight easier overall. Here is some helpful infomation aswell:
Quote:
Originally Posted by cra View Post
For Rajani's rival, health regen triggered as Anjali via Talents won't void the achievement and you can be revived by the AI. Just don't heal yourself with +
View From The Top – 50
You have achieved the maximum level.


Maximum level in this game is 30. If you are quite far away from it by the last boss, then simply continue to save and reload at the last save in the East Forest. This will cause the enemies to continue to spawn, and thus you can just defeat them, save and load over and over until you are level 30.

Merchant of Ehb – 5
You sold over 100,000 coins worth of items.


Easiest way to do this is to wait until you are later on in the game. Simply head over to a merchant, unequip yourself and sell everything. Then buy it all back, sell it, buy it all back over and over until it unlocks. Don’t worry about gold, as you buy it back at the same price you sell it for so you can just continue it until you have done it.

Welcome to the Winner’s Circle – 100
You have restored the Legion and saved the land of Ehb.


You will achieve this after defeating the Reborn God. You can also achieve this by simply beating the Reborn God on someone else’s game.

Lock, Stock, and Invocation – 15
You have completed the main quest as Katarina.


Simply do as it says. This achievement can be won by defeating the last boss on someone elses game while playing as her.

The Calculus of Victory – 15
You have completed the main quest as Reinhart.


Simply do as it says. This achievement can be won by defeating the last boss on someone elses game while playing as him.

Fiery Judgement – 15
You have completed the main quest as Anjali.


Simply do as it says. This achievement can be won by defeating the last boss on someone elses game while playing as her.

Guardian of Ehb – 15
You have completed the main quest as Lucas.


Simply do as it says. This achievement can be won by defeating the last boss on someone elses game while playing as him.

Guardian Legend – 15
You reached level 20 as Lucas.


Simply get to level 20 with this character to achieve this. Easily done by joining someone else’s game at level 19 and getting to level 20 as him.

Two Perfect Tens - 15
You reached level 20 as Katarina.


Simply get to level 20 with this character to achieve this. Easily done by joining someone else’s game at level 19 and getting to level 20 as her.

Archon Adept - 15

Epic Scholarship - 15
You reached level 20 as Reinhart.


Simply get to level 20 with this character to achieve this. Easily done by joining someone else’s game at level 19 and getting to level 20 as him.

Maximum Bro Fist – 20
Playing co-op as Lucas and Reinhart, you defeated a boss.


This must be done on a major boss – Rajani, Old Dapper Gent, Jeyne or the Reborn God. It takes an hour to rush to the point where you fight Rajani, then you can just use local or online multiplayer to have a second player play as the other male character you aren’t playing as (After 30 seconds of inactivity, a local partner will become AI and follow you just like before, but you will still be in co-op).

Two Girls, One Boss – 20
Playing co-op as Anjali and Katarina, you defeated a boss.


This must be done on a major boss – Rajani, Old Dapper Gent, Jeyne or the Reborn God. It takes an hour to rush to the point where you fight Rajani, then you can just use local or online multiplayer to have a second player play as the other female character you aren’t playing as (After 30 seconds of inactivity, a local partner will become AI and follow you just like before, but you will still be in co-op).

Lore Master – 50
You have discovered 60 lore entries in one adventure.


Self explanatory, you just need to find 60 lore items in one save game or be in one that does. Lore comes in the form of Books, Bookshelves and the occasional poster/scroll. As there are 70 Lore in the game, you do not need to collect every single one. See the Lore Location Guide in the link below.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=316879

Of One Mind – 5
You have agreed on dialogue choices 20 times in one session.


You and your partner need to both pick the same reply 20 times in a single session. You must make sure that player 2 picks first, because as soon as player 1 picks it accepts that response.

Rivalry – 5
You have disagreed on dialogue choices 20 times in one session.



You and your partner need to both pick a different reply 20 times in a single session. You must make sure that player 2 picks first, because as soon as player 1 picks it accepts that response.

Enduring Champion – 10
Over your career, you have sustained at least 100,000 points of damage.


Contrary to the description, you seem to actually need to do this in one session. Many people have earned the Deed for this, but not the achievement. Best done at the end of the game at the Spire with a friend, just kill everything except the big Ogres, and then let them hurt/kill you over and over while your friend revives you. Takes quite a while to achieve if you’ve managed to avoid damage for most the game.

Another option, if you have time to kill, is to travel to the Glitterdelve mines. Simply find a crack in the ground that spits fire, and stand on it. As you die, your partner will come revive you. This will just keep happening until you have the achievement. Make sure you watch the first death though, as the AI are dumb enough to stand on the fire aswell and cause a game over :/ - Thanks to Cordeirooo for this figuring this out

Flawless Victory – 25
You defeated the reborn god without needing to be revived by a companion.


This is the final boss. It is not that difficult to achieve, as this boss is quite easy. At the start just focus on getting his hand destroyed. When you are up to the next part and he is spawning enemies, just ignore them until he sucks them up again and rests his head on the ground. When he gets back up, just re-dodge roll around until he sucks them up again. Not very hard to do overall. If you join someone else’s game to get this achievement, you must load it up at the save in the East Forest, not the auto-save just before the boss as this will void the achievement for you.

I Could Do This Blindfolded – 25
You defeated a major opponent using only your default equipment.


This is actually quite a hard task. The major opponents are Rajani, The Old Dapper Gent, Jeyne and the Reborn God. You must unequip all items to your default equipment, and make sure you are not wearing any rings or amulets as these will void the achievement. This is easier done with a friend, as they can still use all of their normal equipment and defeat the boss as you just hide away.

Party of Four – 25
You were part of a four-player party that completed the game together.


Simply defeat the Reborn God as a four player party to get this achievement.

Fellowship of the Ding – 10
You took part in a level-up while in a four-player game.


Simply get a level up while in a full party of four.

Nerds Hate Sunlight – 15
You and a friend have played for three hours in one session.


To get this you must play with a friend for 3 hours in one single session, online or in local co-op (Thanks to Luse666 for figuring out Local was possible). It appears that the timer stops when you are in the menu, as everyone seems to have it unlock a little bit after the 3 hour mark, but just keep playing and you will get there.

Helping Hand – 10
While joined to another player's game, you used an empowered Defensive Ability to assist the party.


Cannot be done in local. This seems likes a very hard achievement, but just takes 15 minutes of grinding. First, join someone else’s game. You then need to head to somewhere with some enemies, preferably small fast ones like the small spiders, and go stand in the middle of them with block activated (). What this will do is charge up your Focus Spheres with every hit you take. Using these, every 5 seconds you can cast the healing spell on yourself (+). After casting it around 100 times, you will unlock the Empowered version of this power. You then need 2 power spheres charged, and holding down both right and left trigger, hit to use it. The achievement should unlock immediately.

Jinx – 5
You were part of a conversation wherein four players were all in agreement as to what to say.


When in a party of 4 players, get the 3 players who have joined to pick the same response. Player one can then pick it as well, and you will get this achievement.

Military Intelligence – 5
You were part of a conversation wherein four players were all in disagreement over what to say.


When in a part of 4 players, you need to wait until you get to a conversation with 4 options. When you get one, have each player pick a separate one. Make sure player one picks last.

Secret Achievements

Stonebridge Alliance – 25
You forged an alliance between Stonebridge and the 10th Legion.

Story related. You will get this after your fight with the Dapper Old Gent.

Long Live the Queen – 25
You broke the siege of Glitterdelve and saved Queen Roslyn.


Story Related. You will get this after finishing the last main quest in the Glitterdelve mine.

Through the Murky Mire – 25
You survived a journey through the Eastern Swamp.


Story Related. You will get this after dealing the the First People, and then leaving the swamp for Stonebridge.

Sacred Meeting – 25
You spoke to the Radiant Youth in the Mournweald.


Story related. After going through the East Forest for the first time you will get this.

Trial by Fire – 25
You defeated the archon, Rajani.


Story Related. You will get this after defeating your first major boss, Rajani.

Aspire to Victory – 25
You stormed the Spire and defeated Jeyne Kassynder.


Story related. After defeating Jeyne for a third time, you will get this achievement.

Liberator – 5
You freed all the prisoners in the Spire.


As you enter the Spire, in the first garden in the West direction there will be a golden pressure plate in the corner. This will unlock the gate to the dungeon in the middle of the North Garden, which will also give you the “Dungeon Siege” side quest. After finishing that quest and letting all of the prisoners go, you will get this achievement.

Royalist Ally – 5
You have shown unwavering support to the Crown.


To get this achievement you must have completed all Royalist side quests, in both the Glitterdelve Mine and the swamp. After you have completed all of these quests, continue the main story line until you are up to the Warbeast in the Mines. After defeating it, you will end up talking to the Queen. Agree to spare Jeyne's life, and after this conversation this achievement as well as a deed of the same name will unlock.


Lescanzi Ally - 5
You ceded control of Gunderic Manor to Leona.


After defeating the lord of the Gunderic Manor, you get a choice to keep control of the Manor or give it away. If you give it away, you will get this achievement. Reload a save to get the opposite one as well!

Legion Caretaker – 5
You decided that Gunderic Manor should remain in Legion hands.


After defeating the lord of the Gunderic Manor, you get a choice to keep control of the Manor or give it away. If you keep it, you will get this achievement. Reload a save to get the opposite one as well!

Overview:
- Cost: 800msp
- Estimated achievement difficulty: 3/10
- Offline: 10 (250
)
- Approximate time for 250 : 2 hours
- Minimum number of playthroughs needed for completion: 1
- Number of missable achievements: 0

This DLC is very easy to complete, and you really do not need a guide. To start this DLC after buying it, you need to have access to the Stonebridge Causeway system. After completing the main guide I had saves galore everywhere, but you may need to start a new character. Go to your quest log and pick the quest "Start the DLC", and it will lead you to a guy with a blue '!' above his head, simply follow the subsequent quest! (Remember to use up on the D-pad for a bread-crumb trail). I suggest using a casual playthrough if you just want the achievements, as there are quite a few mini-bosses which makes the other difficulties quite hard.

Achievement Guide
(In order that you may obtain them)

Bones on the Sand -10
You survived your first encounter with the undead in the desert.
Pretty self-explanatory, upon winning your first encounter with the an undead mob you will gain this.

The Worm Has Turned - 30
You defeated the Giant Sand Worm.
In the same desert area you first enter, at the very end you will find a bridge you need to cross. Don't cross it, and instead head south to find a sign post giving you this quest, and the giant sand worm just a little further on.

The Path Not Taken - 10
You respecced your character.
Upon entering the village, there is a fountain in the middle that you can walk into. Walking into it should prompt the game to offer you to respec your character(s), for 20,000 coin. Simply save at the save point right next to it, get your achievement, and reload.

Mistress of the Abbey - 10
You met Eleanor, de facto leader of the Abbey of St. Hiram.
Main questline, simply talk with her to gain this achievement.

Litany Learned - 40
You learned the recitation in the Temple of Azunai.
As you continue through the desert, you will basically come to an end. This temple is located around there, and has a little goblin outside of it giving you a quest for the Temple. Simply follow with the quest, and you will net this achievement.

Confirmed Shriner - 20
You lit the sacred flames at all three desert shrines.
You really can't miss the quest start for this, it is located at the very start of the DLC.
-The first one is located in the very first desert area, near the entrance to the giant worm.
-The second one is located almost right at the start of the crimson flats area, simply go north.
-The third is at the very end of the area, near the temple of Azunai.

Anointed Ointment - 40
You collected the sacred oil in Sandspring Cavern.
Main questline, can't be missed. Located at the very end of the area.

All Ye Who Enter Here - 10
You performed the ritual and gained access to the Agallan Vault.
Main questline, can't be missed. After returning back from the desert to the abbey, you will do this.

Mummy Dearest 70
You defeated High Priest Molochi.
Main questline, can't be missed. He is located inside the abbey Agallan vault, pretty much at the end.

It Ain't Lion - 10
You spoke to the Lamasu.
Directly after defeating the high priest, you will get the chance to talk to a statue, named Lamasu.

Other than calling this a "Roapmap" I don't really see any problems with it. You made this fairly quick, so good job!

for "rajani's rival" and "i could do this blindfolded" here some advice which help.

for rajani's rival, health regen triggered as Anjali via Talents won't void the achievement and you can be revived by the AI. Just don't heal yourself with +

for the other, dying and being revived is fine also if you need to heal yourself. for those who play hardcore straight, make a spare save, switch difficulty to casual and enjoy the relaxing fight. after you won, reload your real savefile and difficulty is back up at hardcore.

I personally think a difficulty of 4 for this game to complete is to low. Imagine those who don't look for and beg others to trade achievements and play the game solo or splitscreen. Since you gonna play around 100h+ it is definitely a 6 and playing hardcore requires skill if you can't leech the achievement from someone so i would rate it with a 7.
And i wouldn't suggest playing on casual and then jump to hardcore. The difference in damage dealt to you will be overwhelming. Better start with normal to learn the game and its defensive possibilities with blocking and dodging. Bosses may still be annoying but doable. So far you've done a good job for your first guide, but you can still improve it

Is it possible to get the 6 on-line achievements playing split-screen?
I'll buy this game this week, but I want to know if I'll be able to attain every cheev.

Thanks!

for the other, dying and being revived is fine also if you need to heal yourself. for those who play hardcore straight, make a spare save, switch difficulty to casual and enjoy the relaxing fight. after you won, reload your real savefile and difficulty is back up at hardcore.

I personally think a difficulty of 4 for this game to complete is to low. Imagine those who don't look for and beg others to trade achievements and play the game solo or splitscreen. Since you gonna play around 100h+ it is definitely a 6 and playing hardcore requires skill if you can't leech the achievement from someone so i would rate it with a 7.
And i wouldn't suggest playing on casual and then jump to hardcore. The difference in damage dealt to you will be overwhelming. Better start with normal to learn the game and its defensive possibilities with blocking and dodging. Bosses may still be annoying but doable. So far you've done a good job for your first guide, but you can still improve it
Thanks for the achievement advice, I'll quote it in when I get back on later I found it very hard to fill in the top for this game, as all achievements bar Hardcore would give this game a very low rating, so I didn't know whether or not to give it a high rating or not. Even if done by yourself, you should be able to get all the achievements in around 50 hours. It only takes 6 hours to rush through the game on casual (Friend did it to get last achievement), so thats 18 hours for 3 characters. The fourth can be done on Hardcore, with all the side quests, with 30 hours.

Thanks for the advice though, I'm waiting to see feedback before I change it, and the beginning will be totally re-written once I have a better idea of what to put in it :P

Thanks!
The 6 that I have said require online DO require Xbox Live. They are the 4 4-player ones, and two that cannot be done over Local (Helping hand and Nerds Hate Sunlight). The other co-op ones can be done in Local so they aren't in that

Continue with the main quest to get the key to that door. basically a conversation with odo. then just continue to follow your tracker.

Was hoping someone would correct me if that was possible, thanks Luse! I did it online so I wasn't sure if it was possible local or not. Is you Wife's account an online 'friend' with yours? I'm just wary of the fact that it says to do it with "A friend", and thus requires online...just don't want to send someone with on a three hour mission just to find that they can't actually do it unless they're "Live" friends...

Hopefuly that will bring it to only 5 achievements that require xbox Live, so players without it will be able to get quite a large 945 points

Wife's account is xbl silver, but it's on my friendlist, still to play local co-op with a silver account it has to be offline anyway, also she was the main profile and I was joining her.

I haven't played the game yet, but from what I've been reading it seems you can switch difficulties of your save files whenever you load them up (or something to that extent). Does that mean for the Worthy of Legend achievement you could just save before the final boss on Casual and then load it up on Hardcore and beat him to get it?

VERY good point! Seeing as many people out there have saves at the end on casual and need Hardcore, can they please test this theory? I only have a save at the end on Hardcore so can't test it myself without playing through the game again >.>

Great guide. In your roadmap, for the hardcore playthrough, you advise that you level up to make things easier. Does that mean enemies don't scale in this game? I've read thru the posts and didn't see any mention of that...sorry if I overlooked it.

Didn't work, went from normal to hardcore, killed the final boss and no hardcore achievement.

Thank you very much MyPetWorm!

Unfortunately for me, there's no way to get those achievements, so, in the end, I'll be 5 (possibly six) cheevs short.

enemies scale/level up. it even says so in the menu/help topics.


you wont notice this on casual but its easily seen on hardcore.

gunmen you were destroying in the forest at the beginning of the game when you were level 1 take more damage and deal more damage when you are level 30 at the spire and you will need high stats to fight against enemies towards the end of the game.


and cordeirooo am in the same boat as you. wont be able to get the online achievements. and based on the 4+hours i am spending at the boss fight, i dont think i will be able to complete hardcore. this is one of those games that is unplayable on the hardest difficulty with the A.I. you pretty much need to play it with a human to beta it. i hate this system of gaming.


thanks for the guide and road map Petworm.

As Sir Mourinho has already answered, yes they scale. However, it is not equal with yourself, well atleast it didn't seem that way for my friend and myself. They also remain the same when they level (If hes holding a gun, he'll always be holding a gun), but you recieve the stat bonus' aswell. The only thing that we thought made a huge difference to the difficulty was the amount of players, as it was WAY harder with 4 players than just 1/2.


@ Luse - Did you load the last forest save, or the last Auto-save? Would have to be the forst one. Sucks though :/
