Going to get this game next week. Glad I waited til the guide came out. That's a ton of missable achievements! Only worry I have is the controls, are they easy to get the hang of after a while?

I never really had any problem with the controls. I think it's more a matter of understanding all of the different game mechanics.

When I did the tutorial, it told me I should play the game on Easy, but I put it up on Dark anyway. The beginning was a little rough, but once you get familiar with everything (and buy the Dark mode exclusive armor!) it's really not that bad.

I still haven't finished it, but I've been breezing through Act 2 with my only deaths coming from trying to go for specific achievements (ie, getting myself surrounded to get the Threesome achievement).

I need to know if i can befriend the trolls on roches path. I know the guide says yes but i hav read that's it's hard because roche attacks one. I would like to do it on roche so i can get hunter armor too.i think i missed it already because i already beat sender at poker. Just wondering how hard it was to do the trolls on roche and if there are any complications.

I got the contracts achievement without doing the gargoyles quest. I went into the end of Ch 3 without realizing it, but it unlocked right as the cutscene started playing.

Btw, what is the "Enhanced Edition" content? It was advertised as 4 more hours of gameplay, but how do I access it?

I got it on my first Dark playthrough on Roche's path. It was easy. Just be nice and talk to them. There shouldn't be any problems. Roche never attacked any of them.

If you save Philippa in Chapter 3, you can not get the Being Witcher George achievement. It doesn't give you the option to kill Saskia when she's impaled. At least, not doing the Iorveth playthrough.

-Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 2

Hello
This is my Witcher 2 roadmap to help you plan to get your 1k in 2 playthroughs.
Itís not an achievement guide, but I did add small descriptions on how or what.
The list is in order when you can first get them or when I got them.
I also broke it down in the 2 different paths.

General info:
This game requires 2 playthroughs to 1k it. (~1.75 actually if you start on Dark).
Reason is, near the end of chapter1 you have to pick a path (Iorveth or Roche).
I suggest to start on easy/normal on your first, because Dark can be very annoying/unforgiving if you start here right away. Since you have to play it twice anyway, easy/normal is a good way to start and enjoy the game.
Then you can rush through Dark in ~10 hours if you want.
I also suggest going with Iorveth on your first normal/easy playthrough, cos I found it easier than Roche's path.
So the steps to 1k are easy enough and they are:

Step 1:
Normal/easy playthrough with Iorveth and kill the trolls.
Step 2:
Dark playthrough with Vernon Roche and spare the trolls.
Step 3:
Finish 30 arena rounds.

Preparations/tips:
-Arena is separate from the game, handy to get to fight 30 to try out skills and the fighting.
-For your first playthrough, kill all (3) trolls. Trollslayer will pop during chapter 2.
-Spare all 3 on your second (thereís actually a 4th with Vernon, not sure if he counts)
-Read this WIKI and try to get as many abilities as you can on your Dark playthrough.
-Try do do most of the quests on your first playthrough to reach level 35 for Guru.
-I went 95% magic on my Dark playthrough, once Igni is upgraded the game becomes a lot easier.
-Perfectionist is easy to get at the start of chapter 2, when you are under a magical umbrella. Just tag 10 enemies without getting hit.
-Miser, this is not cumulative, you need 10k at once and itís easy if you loot/harvest a lot.
Skill tips:
-Try to save up some points during chapter 2 (8-9 I think), make a save and get the mutant ability. Then reload and spend them like you want to.
OR
For getting the 3 adrenaline ability achievements (the mutant/heliotrope/group finisher) It's much for practical to instead do the quest From a Bygone Era as you are able to fully respec, simply make a save before you talk to the Operator. This is just easier than holding onto points imo.
-Ricochet and Focus need to be unlocked in the trees. Once unlocked, hold block when you isolated some archers and it pops when you killed 1. For Focus, lock on to an enemy and press A when indicated.

Note: some achievements take a few seconds to unlock.


Prologue missable:
-Eagle Eye, when the king asks you to aim the ballista, look for a small character in the distance.

Chapter 1 missables:
-Librarian, just keep your eyes open during the asylum quest. Last of the 4 pages is in the wraith room.
-Man of the Shadows, during Indecent Proposal. Take your time and donít get detected, stun all the guards you can. Make sure to find the kayran trap part at the end outside or you will miss Artful Dodger later!
-Artful Dodger, just press A where it shows you to plant the trap to instakill a tentacle when it hits. (must craft kayran trap beforehand ofcourse)
Important: finish the nekker and endrega quests for Pest Control in chapter 3!

Chapter 2 general missables:
-Friend of Trolls/Trollslayer, just either kill or spare trolls during an entire playthrough.
If you want to save them, you will have to finish their quests and save the last troll from enemies.

Chapter 2 Iorveth missables:
-Blackops, donít get detected while trying to sneak through the Kaedweni camp.
Important: finish the harpy nest quest for Pest Patrol in chapter 3!

Chapter 2 Vernon Roche missables:
-Tourist, just follow Zyvik around.
-Gladiator, donít forget to drop by here and win all 4 fights. (Talk to Proximo)
-Heartbreaker, for free eboobs, after you defeated Ves, go visit her at Rocheís camp. Pick the right options (very obvious) and do what you want.
-Necromancer, there's 5 (6) easy parts you need to complete.
-Reasons of State, just pick the right option to get this bleepie. Itís during the cutscene after you fight the king.
Important: finish the rotfiend quest for Pest Patrol in chapter 3!

Chapter 3 general missables:
-Pest Control, this pops after you turn in the gargoyle quest.
-Sensitive Guy/Witch Hunter, make a save when you are heading to the tower with the dragon. Pick either to remove or leave the diamond when you meet up with SŪle and reload.
-Avenger/Old Friends, make a save before you walk up to Letho, reload and pick other option.

Chapter 3 Iorveth missables:
-Spellbreaker, start by helping Philippa out of the prison. Don't go rescue Triss!
-Dragonheart, choose "Walk away".

Chapter 3 Vernon Roche missables:
-
Kingmaker, don't go rescue Triss!
-Being Witcher George, choose "Kill the dragon".

I'm sure this has already been covered somewhere but, for the Dark difficulty achievement, can we just swap to Dark difficulty right before the end?

Of course not. Unfortunately not many if any games allow this anymore. I remember back when the 360 first launched there were a few games that allowed this tactic though. I'm personally glad they don't allow us to do that. It would be a bitch move. No offence. The game really isn't that hard on Dark anyway. And if you have trouble there are several topics floating around that have great tips. Good luck.

Yeeeeaaaahhhh, my query was based on my only having a rental copy and wondering if I'll be able to knock out the full 1K in one week, nothing to do with struggling to play the game.

Okay. No you won't be able to 1000 this in a week. Your first playthrough on Dark will probably take 40-50 hours. It's difficult to say since the game doesn't track your playtime. You will have to do a second playthrough or at least part of one. Though you will probably want to play through a full 2nd time since the story is vastly different. All together I say it'll take you just under 100 hours to 100% it. Possible more or less based on how well you can play.

I've been playing it since release and still have a few achievements left to go. I'm working on my 2nd playthrough now. I would suggest doing Dark for your first playthrough since it'll make you a lot better at the game.

This is a great game and a very enjoyable 1000. Don't rush through it. I hope you enjoy the game.

Yes they are.... I was having trouble in the beginning as well, but after while, you'll get the hang of them. Then, later on, if you know how to play it and have the right equipment, you'll kick the games' ass lol..

I don't know if you haven't already, but try the tutorial out, just to get a feel for it. Also, it was more helpful to just roll dodge as much as you can, as opposed to parrying and blocking.

I followed the guide to the letter, Iorveth first then Roche. Roche was my Dark playthrough, though I kinda wish I had reversed them lol. Roche's path seemed to end just a little bit darker than Iorveths what with the whole Vergan thing and dragon death..

Just got my 1000 about a hour ago. Thanks for the guide maker and others for helping out. To anyone who thinks Dark is hard, wait until you can get upgrade your abilities, and it gets much easier, especially if you go down the magic path.

There is one extra troll that is on a hidden spot. It is always hostile and will attack you. Killing it won't fail the achievement. I killed it then later befriended the two trolls and the achievement popped.

No, you can also buy the diagram for this armor from Berthold Candeleria in Flotsam.

I complete all quest (including every side quest in the game)and I just get to level 34.5 in my playthrough with vernon roche. Is there a way to still level up?, or with Iorveth (Dark playthrough) is easier to get it?

Did Ioverth, got the 10% achievement early in Flotsam and got to level 35 in the last chapter, actually could have gone higher a level or 2 higher if let me.
