Click HERE for Pants Party's Roadmap and guide


Intro:
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is a story guided by R.A. salvatore. You play as a fateless one guiding yourself on a journey through the Faelands to fight Tirnoch and and his army of Tuatha. You will upgrade skills and abilities to help you fight, craft, pick, and stealth your way through a cavalcade of creatures and quests, in this very open-ended game.

Preparation:
This game offers a very straight-forward achievement list with all very easy, but time consuming achievements. A grind for achievements will be slightly more taxing than if you were to play through the game normally but still just as easy.

Six of the achievements are strictly unmissable. Read through the guide for all the others but know that about half will come while trying to do the faction achievements and crafting except for: Out of Your League, A Wink and a Smile, and Destiny Dominated. All of these can be easily obtained by following the descriptions under their respective achievement. All the other achievements that seem missable in the normal course of play can be obtained easily after the main story has been completed.

The most time consuming achievement will be "Loremaster" as it will require you to explore much of the world on foot. Keep the maps of Lorestone locations handy, found HERE, and you should be able to knock this out efficiently. Use this list of trainers to maximize your skill points to save time and use skill points from leveling toward other skills.

Skill Minimums:
In order to get achievements for each skill-based achievement (see trainer list above), you'll need the minimum rank in each skill:

Alchemy - 5 points, 3-5 should be sufficient until you find the 4-6 trainer.
Blacksmithing - 10 points, buy as much training for this skill as possible - the first trainer is at the warsworn camp.
Detect Hidden - 2 points, if you max detect hidden it will make finding lorestones much easier.
Dispelling - None, 4 points will make this much easier.
Lockpick - None, 2-3 should suffice just for getting you the achievement.
Mercantile - None, less points will actually net you the spending achievement faster but hurt your gold income.
Persuasion- None, best to wait to get to House of Ballads and purchase training from Ellova after the tutorial.
Sagecraft- 8 points, again save for training, buy when you can spare it.
Stealth- None, 3 points will get you enough to get the backstabs.

Total Awards: 9 (more» ...)
House of Ballads 20
Complete the House of Ballads storyline quests.

The quest "Building Bridges" will start this quest line. This is the quest obtained by the man standing over the injured Fae in Gorhart at the beginning of the game. You will end up in the Fae court and get the "Song of Sir Sagrell" quest which will put you on the path for the quest chain. Follow the line from there to obtain this achievement:
  • Song of Sir Sagrell
  • Ballad of Bloody Bones
  • Two Knights and a Troll
  • What Lies Beneath
  • The Champions
  • Cursed Kingdom
  • The Hero and the Maid
House of Sorrows 20
Complete the House of Sorrows storyline quests.

This starts on the second island. Once you progress the main story to unlock the gate of Mel Senshir, you will be forced to talk to the person who begins this quest line as they'll be blocking the exit.
  • The Sorrows Call
  • Voices of the Dead
  • A House Divided
  • The Weeping King
  • The Eldest
  • Such Sweet Sorrow
Scholia Arcana 20
Complete the Scholia Arcana storyline quests.

The entrance to the city of Ysa (found in Sidhe, east of Gorhart) houses the NPC Sola who will point you towards the city of Caer Nyralim to the southwest. Again follow the long chain and you will unlock this achievement. To further clarify, once inside Ysa the Scholia Arcana house is the southernmost building. There you will find "Docent Augra;" she will start your chain with the quest "Trial by Fire."
  • Trial by Fire
  • The Ruin of Aodh
  • The Unquiet Bride
  • Shardfall
  • Lightning in a Bottle
  • A Crowded Mind
  • Revelation
Travelers 20
Complete the Travelers storyline quests.

To start this you must venture to Star Camp. You can get there by going east from Gorhart to Youlan, south to Webwood, east to Haxhi, and following it northeast to the wood heading towards Sidhe. You will be greeted by a man in leather garb offering you to join the ranks of the Travelers, simply agree and go inside, following the quest. Complete the chain to get this:
  • The Guided Hands
  • The Silent Step
  • Jailbreak
  • Something Borrowed
  • Going Rogue
  • Mirror, Mirror
  • Outside the Box
  • Classic Misdirection
  • Thick as Thieves
Warsworn 20
Complete the Warsworn storyline quests.

If you talk to Ost Odura in the Gorhart Inn (the northern building by the fountain), he will start you on a chain towards completing this achievement. Simply follow the line to get this one done:
  • The Commendation
  • The Road Patrol
  • Rally Cry
  • The Heart of Sibun
  • Lock and Key
  • House of No Doors
  • The Isle of Eamonn
  • The Mystic Hammer
  • The Mountain Prison
Reckoning Rampage 20
Kill 5 enemies with a single Fateshift.

The Fateshift ability is unlocked when you meet the Fateweaver on the path towards Gorhart after leaving the tutorial area, the Well of Souls. As you kill enemies, you will gain Fate Essence to use towards Reckoning Mode. You can activate this by holding and simultaneously when the purple bar (the middle one) is full. Simply wait to use your Reckoning until five or more enemies are around, knock them all out so they have over their heads and the achievement will unlock once you've performed the Reckoning.

Niskaru Slayer 20
Kill 25 Niskaru.

You will get this with natural story progression.

However, there is an infinite Niskaru spawn available during "The Erathell's Blessing" side quest in Ayten if you want to knock this out quickly. Go to Ayten (first city along the road in the Plains of Etrathell) and talk to Singing Nell. She'll give you a quest to activate the five Windstones at Ayten Circle. The trick is to not activate them in the correct order, which is Lowest, Low, Medium, High, Highest. Starting at any one stone, activate each stone in a counter/clockwise motion (but not the correct pattern). This will summon a Niskaru. Defeat and repeat.

Out of your League 20
Kill an enemy 4 levels higher than you.

The levels of enemies can be seen by the color of their name above their head. Yellow is your level, orange is two levels above you, and red is four. Simply venture to unknown areas using your map () to find a red-tagged enemy. To make the fight simple, save a Reckoning ability with which to kill him. The damage from your attacks will help kill any surrounding creatures and easily help you dispatch the mob.

If you leave the starting zone for the zone to the southeast (Haxhi) you should be able to find a thresh that's easy to kill, especially with DLC armor and weapons, and a saved Reckoning. Alternatively, load up the Autosave that the game creates just after the tutorial and head to Gorhart. Commit a crime and agree to jail, then escape and (with a Reckoning), attack and kill either the guard or the other prisoner. Both will be four levels above you.

Cleaning up the Streets 20
Kill 50 bandits.

One of the easier achievements in the game. Bandits can be found almost everywhere and this achievement should unlock very early for you. It unlocked for me when I just barely got into the second area east of Gohart.

Blades of Glory 15
Acquire 10 Unique weapons (Special Delivery weapons excluded)

Unique items are marked by their Purple names. Simply look for all chests and be thorough in searching corpses as you go and you should have this in no time. I got two of them in the starting zone. This achievement only tracks weapons, so if you feel like you've got a ton of Purple items and don't have the achievement, double check if you've counted any armor or accessories on accident.

Note that you do not have to keep the weapons in your inventory to earn the achievement, so feel free to sell them as you go if you don't plan to use them.

Foiled Again! 15
Parry 100 times.

To parry attacks you must have a shield equipped, then press and hold just as the enemy is about to hit you. You will know if you timed it correctly when the game "slows down" for about a half a second and the enemy is knocked backwards. It is important to note that you do not take damage from a proper execution of the parry defense, and thus you can farm parries on one enemy if you prefer a different style of combat. Simply repeat it 100 times for the achievement.

Trapper 15
Kill 25 enemies with traps.

The first trap that you will have access to is the Frost Trap on the right side of the Finesse tree. It will take 6 points to get this ability and more for it to start being lethal. The following skill, Icy Explosion, will add to its damage modifiers making this achievement easier to obtain. To use your ability hold and the corresponding button to which you have mapped the trap. These can be lain in combat.

Riposte! 10
Land 25 special attacks out of Parry.

The Riposte skill will require 50 points spent in one of either the Might or Finesse class specialization to unlock the final Weaponry focus, which will unlock the after-parry attack for the specified weapons. It is the leftmost tree in each of those classes. Note that the Sorcery tree does not have an after-parry special attack!

Alternatively, you can put 37 points into each of the three trees to unlock the "Mastery of Arms" perk which will give you every available weapon ability.

Would You Like Fries with that? 15
Land 100 complete attack chains.

To achieve this simply continue attacking with the same weapon until the attack chain is complete. Usually this will stagger the foe or trigger a weapon effect such as poison or fire damage. I got this by the time I left the starting area. Just use basic combos to start, rather than switching between your weapons/magic.

Shock and Awe 15
Kill 100 enemies with abilities.

See "And Then There Were None" for more info.

And Then There Were None 20
Kill 500 enemies with abilities.

Abilities are the attacks you will map to your UI, and are used by holding and selecting one of the face buttons. Traps count toward this achievement; however, sustained skills (such Envenomed Edge or Blade Honing from the Finesse tree) and buffs (such as Relentless Assault from the Might tree) do not! It has to be classed as an "active" skill, as well as being the skill itself that kills the enemy.

If you don't use too many abilities, simply return to the starting area toward the end of the game and one-shot a bunch of low-level enemies with Storm Bolt from the Sorcery tree. You can also do the Arena in the House of Valor (DLC) for quick kills.

Juggler 20
Land 5 consecutive hits on a launched enemy.

There are countless moves that will launch an enemy into the air, any of which can net you this with ease. This can be done early on with the starting weapons (longsword/bow), described by "yevinorion" - "For juggler, best used with longsword and bow, in very beginning part. Time two sword attacks with a small pause in between the attacks to launch an enemy in the air, then spam arrows when enemy is in the air and it should unlock, easy."

This can also be done with a Faeblade Riposte or full dagger combo while the enemy is in the air. Both will net enough hits automatically.

Elixir of Fate 20
Make a potion with the Essence of Fate.

The Essence of Fate potions can all be made once your alchemy reaches level 5. Your character must be at least level 8 to reach this level of skill. Once you have done so, experiment with any of the four base ingredients listed HERE such as Bloodroot, Cohosh, and Embereyes. After you learn the potion, you must actually create it to get the achievement.

It Didn't Explode! 10
Make a stable potion by experimenting.

The first possible place to mix potions is in Gohart, in the western foremost building opposite the blacksmith. If you take a right when you enter, you'll be in the the basement. There you will find an alchemy mixing station and you can experiment. A few quick examples can be found in this thread HERE. You will also get this if you wait to do "Elixir of Fate."

Note that if you increase your Alchemy skill to level 10 before getting this, you'll automatically learn every recipe and will not be able to unlock it! Start a new save file if you do this on accident.

Green Thumb 15
Harvest 10 of each type of reagent.

You need to harvest (not just find/loot) ten each of the reagents below. Putting points into Alchemy will increase the chance of harvesting. All harvest points will respawn after some time. Names and locations are as follows (note that you have to complete a side quest to rebuild Seawatch before reagents will spawn there):
  • Bloodroot - Seawatch, located to the left of Caeled Coast on the map.
  • Seaflax - Seawatch.
  • Scarlet Flowstone - Seawatch by alchemical lab.
  • Scarwood Bark - Seawatch.
  • Sky Blossom - Seawatch.
  • Tindertwig - Seawatch.
  • Black Cohosh - Allestar Tower, start of the game, also found basically everywhere.
  • White Flake - Shardfall, top left of Cradle of Summer, inside cave.
  • Eel Petal - Allestar Tower, at least 2 on the way to first town in the game.
  • Scarab Salts - Shardfall.
  • Star Thistle - Seawatch.
  • Softscrabble Powder - The Court of Winter, final warp point in the game, just warp and turn around.
  • Sativa Fibers - Seawatch.
  • Cripplespore Caps - Stonecandle Mines, first mine at start of game, also found in most caves.
  • Edelweiss - House of Valor, 2 inside warp point, big white bush, also all over the desert.
  • Ysa's Breath - Seawatch.
  • Embereyes - Seawatch.
  • Leechwood Bark - Seawatch.
  • Prismere Dust - The Court of Winter.
The only except to the Harvest rule seems to beEssence of Fate. This can be looted from bodies after using Reckoning and it counts toward your ten. More help with this achievement can be found HERE. If at the end of the game you don't have this achievement, sell all your reagents and then start Prismere Dust, harvesting ten of everything. Do not loot ANYTHING other than Essence of Fate! This will help you easily earn the achievement.


Good as New 10
Repair a piece of equipment.

The earliest you can get this achievement is actually inside the tutorial. You can find your repair kits inside the menu: inventory>items>item. Highlight the repair kit with the left analog stick hit the button and highlight the item you wish to repair, then confirm and you're done.

Shop Class 10
Craft a piece of equipment with Blacksmithing.

See "Master of the Forge" for more information.

Master of the Forge 20
Craft an item that uses all 5 forge component slots.

As you get items you can visit the blacksmith/forge and salvage parts from them to make more gear for your character. The higher your level of Blacksmithing, the higher the item quality you can salvage - white, green, blue, purple will each offer better components with which to make new items. You will need to be at a minimum of level 16 and a level 10 in Blacksmithing before you can get this achievement.

[It may also require you to be able to use Sagecrafting gems in the components - I do not yet know for sure.]

Romancing the Gem 15
Craft an Epic Gem.

You will need to be at least a level 8 Sagecrafter and at a minimum level of 16 to craft an epic gem. Simply add shards you've made or found to create a combination that will make an epic gem at an altar. You can see what the output will be before confirming, so don't worry about trying different combinations.

Diamond in the Rough 10
Craft a Pristine Shard.

This achievement can be obtained by combining two of any quality shard - cloudy, lambent, or pristine to create a pristine shard. You will need to be at least level 3 in Sagecrafting in order to get this achievement. Shards can be picked up from anything, but are most commonly found in chests and warded objects. Visit an altar, such as the one in the building in Gohart, reachable after completing the "Crisis of Faith" quest to craft these gems.

They Never Saw it Coming 10
Backstab 20 enemies.

The tutorial will teach you how to sneak up on an enemy by pressing to enter stealth mode. Simply sneak up behind them and hit or (depending on where your daggers are equipped) to backstab them. For this achievement, it actually requires that you kill the enemy with the backstab. You'll know ahead of time if they'll die or not because the icon will have a red tint around the edges. If the attack will not kill, it will be a normal circle.

Cartographer 20
Discover 100 locations.

As you explore the world, locations will be discovered and appear on the map screen's world screen (hit at the map screen to switch between local and world). Any named location you've discovered counts towards the 100 needed.

The Great Detective 10
Detect 25 hidden things.

Detect Hidden is a skill that will allow you to see hidden rooms and places where you can find unique and helpful goodies to help you in the adventure (logs, rock piles, wells, etc). Take a few points in this early on and you will have this after a little bit of natural exploring - loot spots will show as orange dots on your mini-map. Maxing this skill will also help with "Loremaster" as the Lorestones will show up on the map as well.

Loremaster 20
Discover all Lorestones.

Lorestones are obelisk-like structures found throughout the world that offer bonus XP per stone found and insight to history and lore behind the game's story, culture, and lives of the people in the game. All Lorestone locations can be found at the IGN site HERE. Another easy way to do this is to make sure you put enough points in Detect Hidden to be maxed out, this will show you all locations of Lorestones on the local map.

Bookworm 15
Read 50 books.

Books can be found on shelves in buildings just about anywhere, look for highlighted bookcases to find books for you to read. You can also hit to inspect the book then again to read it to avoid having to steal it.

If you need a quick cache of books, head to the Luminary Leaf in Rathir. You can purchase 17 books there to read. There are also 9 to be found in the House of Valor (DLC).

Big Spender 15
Spend 200,000 gold.

Spend cash as you get it. You will likely have a few million with the game's completion so this achievement should come with ease. Just buy things you like when you feel comfortable doing so. Spending money on bribes, Fateweaving and training also counts towards this achievement

Five Finger Discount 10
Steal and fence an item.

The first place you'll likely come across to sell fenced goods is Star Camp. See "Travelers" for its location. The only shop owner there is the fence. Still works if the stolen item is in your Junk folder.

Where's My Wallet? 15
Pickpocket 20 times.

When in stealth you have the option to pickpocket any individual by pressing the button while near them. Stealing an item, stopping, and stealing another item from the same individual also counts as separate thefts. Repeat 20 times.

It has been found that the pickpocket must be a successful attempt in order to count towards the achievement. A successful attempt is one made unnoticed.

Jailbreak 10
Break out of jail.

If you are caught committing a crime, you are given the choice to pay off the bounty with a fee (which you will use toward "Crime Doesn't Pay") or to serve time in jail. If you choose to not breakout while in jail you will lose XP; if you do break out you will gain value in bounty and risk being caught again. Gohart is a great place to do this. You can also make a save to commit crimes and get these achievement and revert back to your pious and righteous save when you are done if you so chose it.

A Life of Crime 15
Get caught committing a crime 25 times.

Any crime you commit must be seen; this can be assault (damaging a person), murder, theft, etc. Simply get caught for crimes 25 times and you're set. If you pickpocket a character then attack them and run away out of the village for a day or two of in-game time, it will leave them alive and give you the credit you need. Or if you have the money, simply commit the crime and pay the bribe to try and knock out the bribe money as well for "Crime Doesn't Pay."

Crime Doesn't Pay 10
Spend over 10,000 gold in crime bribes.

See "A Life of Crime" for more info. Just keep choosing the option to bribe instead of going to jail.

Some of This, Some of That 10
Unlock a two-class hybrid destiny.

See "Jack of all Trades" for more info.

It is Your Destiny 50
Unlock a top tier destiny.

See "Jack of all Trades" for more info.

Jack of All Trades 10
Unlock a Jack of All Trades destiny.

You will unlock destiny cards for the first time after meeting the Fateweaver on the way to Gohart. As you level you will be given points to spend as you see fit in the three trees: finesse, sorcery, and might. The more points you put in each tree, the higher the tiered destiny cards you will unlock. There are single class, dual class, and triple class specializations. Single revolves around putting points in just one tree, dual are a choice of two, and triple is of course all three. The requirements for each card can be found in the parentheses at the top. You must have that many points in that allotted tree to use that specific destiny card. By level 2 you can have the Jack of All Trades destinies (putting one point in each finesse, might and sorcery), by level 5 you can have the dual class card, and by level 37 you will have the top tier card if you put all the rest of your points into only ONE tree - I believe one more level would net you what you need for top tier if you did the dual or tri-spec.

Breaking and Entering 15
Pick 50 locks.

Simply pick 50 locked chests. This will come in no time if you are searching for chests. A post with lockpicking help can be found HERE.

Open Sesame 15
Dispel 50 wards.

Wards can be found throughout the world. They are found as glowing purple objects. You will play a mini-game where a cursor will loop around a ring and you must time hitting the button as the cursor goes over top of the runes in places. As the runes get more difficult you must time your rune activation to be in flow as some runes offer less time until they deactivate. You'll also have to avoid the red runes or it will fail. Invest a few points into the Dispelling skill to make this a bit easier.

Runed objects can explode if you fail.

A Wink and a Smile 15
Succeed at 50 Persuasion attempts.

In conversations with NPC's there will occasionally be options that arise where you can persuade the NPC for items, gold, help, etc. These are highlighted in green text and can be found on the radial wheel, inside of dialogue. There will be a percentage next to it which shows your chance of success. It will be wise to invest points in, and seek out trainers for, Persuasion to maximize the number of outcomes towards this 50. Save often so that you may revert, if need be, to pass all attempts.

A large list of quests that can offer persuasion attempts has been compiled HERE.

5 of the secret achievements are unmissable as they are story line.

Streaker can be obtained as soon as you start. Just take off any equipment that you have and speak to someone and it will unlock.

Elixir of Fate: I got the components for this from hidden rooms. I used the detect skill to find the rooms.

@ Destiny Dominated to my knowledge you need to complete the entire game on hard mode. I was having trouble near the end of House of Ballads (Mostly due to no potions) after like 2-3 repeat deaths a pop up saying "Would you like to turn down the difficulty this will make content easier but will lock you out of certain achievements" or something close to that.

So from that bit of info I would say difficulty switch would not work.

Thank YOU. This information needs to be front page. Can you please make a thread regarding this information you found? It is extremely important for everyone to know if they have to complete the FULL game on hard or not.

Out of your league- Kill an enemy 4 levels higher than you

I was exploring and found a pinpoint location with level you need to be but it's not easy and please note that I am playing my playthrough on hard! I was a level 10 and the location is Motus Mining headquarters located in Apotyre. If you enter and go below you can unlock a door down a stairwell and the enemies behind it are 4 levels higher, problem is there are about 8 and the fight is brutal. I hope this helps someone!

Riposte! 10

Land 25 special attacks out of Parry.

The riposte skill is for the longsword and will require 50 might points in order to access this skill, the ability is the far most left tree. I will update this with guidance when I get the ability.
... this is wrong. You don't need the skill Riposte to get this achievement. That's just the name of it. All you need to do is progress your normal skills in your tree until you unlock a move that specifically names itself as an after-parry attack. I have this as a rogue.

For the Juggler achievement, a very simple way to get this right at the start after you exit the Well of Souls is to equip a longsword and bow. The long sword comes with it's launcher unlocked by default (Attack, pause, attack) so just use that to get the opponent in the air and start firing your bow. Pretty easy to get 5 hits in before they hit the ground.

that tree skill is still the left most tree and requires 50 points spent in ANY one of the three specializations, be it sorcery, finesse, or might, to unlock the after parry attack...the requirements say so on the abilities trees I'm sorry sir but I'm not wrong

I simply chose longsword for an example

It's still miles from what your description actually says, and it does come off as wrong, like she told you (Yes, a she, I know... her pic and gamerchick emblem claim otherwise !).

When people point out flaws in your guide, you might wanna listen instead of telling yourself you're right, or it won't get anywhere near the frontpage of the game.

"(Yes, a she, I know... her pic and gamerchick emblem claim otherwise !)." - Regarding Idivil.

That's actually her on her profile picture. She is a female model living in California. I know this because I liked her Facebook group.

It went right over your head, didn't it ?

I didn't even bother to convey the sarcasm...

I do see her emblem and I'd still say sir, I do all the time. but thanks for the insight. The way I saw it still makes sense to me (in my head) as what I replied with, I changed the description either way to make sense. I'm sure xenolith can tell you from experience I have an awkward way of text chatting in terms of sensible coherency.

Streaker 10

You spoke to someone while not wearing clothes.

To get this achievement simply talk to any individual wearing no clothes. you can do this by going to to your inventory menu, select armour, select each piece you may be wearing and remove the item. Talk to a shop owner or NPC and you're good.

This isnt working, im completely nude with no armor/clothes and no weapons, and i talked to like 4 different people. Still no achievement. Im level 21.

I did mine at level 4 with weapons on, by talking to the blacksmith in gorhart... maybe does it include rings and necklaces? Try checking that I don't think I had any rings at that point... hopefully someone else has some insight

It's already been clarified on my behalf, but I just wanted to point it out since it ends up sounding like you HAVE to go might and get the Riposte skill specifically for the achievement... Thanks for checking it out/fixing it/etc for us.

And you guys are sweet. I'm sitting here all blushy now x3

This starts on the second island, you will be notified by a someone to drop by a location.


Niskaru Slayer 20

Kill 25 Niskaru.

I have yet to encounter any creatures but the demo play through at E3 states that their home resides in "Brigands' Hall Cavern". I will provide a location picture once I find it or find a picture online.

You will easily kill 25 during the main quest, don't worry about this.
Open Sesame 15

I auto dispelled everything and got the achievement for it, maybe handy to know that it don't have to be done manually.

Great Guide on a great game! Thanks!

Juggler: I used a Greatsword, in the Menetyre Region, on the 3rd slash, the Mage-type enemies are launched up, then take your bow and shot fast, amny times.

On the same region, I got the Out of your League achievement, with a new character, Lv.1 and the weapons and armors from the DLC (all mage-type enemies are red to me).

On the Streaker, you must remove everything, from armor, passing to shields and acessories.

But I'm having some trouble with the Reckoning Rampage achievement: i've tried everything, from killing more than 6 enemies, and finishing with the special (A), to ending normally without it, and still no success... anyone have any more tips?
