Darksiders 2 Achievement Guide and Roadmap

Overview:
-Estimated achievement difficulty: 5/10
-Offline: 47 (930)
-Online: 4 (70) Need to complete The Crucible and gift a friend an item. Requires Crucible Pass which is on the back of the game manual. Must have online connection to redeem.
-Approximate amount of time to 1000: 35-40 Hours
-Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1+ (Suggesting 2. You can start on Apocalyptic from the start but will need to fully level to 30 for an achievement. You will also want good items and be maxed out to complete The Crucible. I suggest playing through on Easy/Normal and then playing your New Game+ on Apocalyptic. Once you have the achievement for Apocalyptic, you can change the difficulty down to Easy. This should make the game much easier).
-Number of missable achievements: You must complete all side quests before finishing the game and starting a new game+. The side quests do not carry over and you will have to do them all over again.
-Do cheat codes disable achievements ? None
-Does difficulty affect achievements? Yes. Stackable difficulties. Highest difficulty to beat it is Apocalyptic achievement wise. Can do so on new game+ if you want.
-Glitchy achievements: Yes (various reports on certain ones not unlocking for everyone)
-Unobtainable achievements? No
-Extra equipment needed? Crucible Pass REQUIRED for 2 achievements. It is on the back of the manual.

Introduction

This is an 3rd person hack and slash game with puzzles and RPG elements. This is a sequel to another game, though you do not have to have played it to enjoy this one, though it is suggested for storyline reasons. First off to let you know, there are collectibles and side quests that you must complete besides just beating the game. This game has you backtrack more than a couple of times, and collecting the various collectibles can be very time consuming and not too enjoyable. Because you must do a new game + anyways, you might as well start on normal and do the new game + on Apocalyptic. Difficulty achievements do stack. Surprisingly there isn't any combat related achievements. You will need the Crucible Pass to complete this game, which is in all new game boxes (so if you buy it used, you will have to purchase it in the marketplace). As with all RPG type games, you will encounter a lot of loot. Try your best not to waste your money or sell useful things. Specifically, any item with the name in purple is something you want to hold on to. The game's save system is only meant for 1, but a backup here and there is highly suggested on either USB or Cloud. There have been a few reports of various glitches, some meaning you cannot continue on with the game and must start over. I personally experienced one where the primary quest did not finish and I did not get my achievement, but could continue to the next quest.

Playthrough 1: Any difficulty/Collectibles and Side Quests

I suggest just starting on normal and focusing on completing all side quests and collectibles. This isn't too hard of a game, though there is a lot of falling that can happen. One very important thing to remember, is that for New Game+ your side quests and collectibles do NOT carry over. This means you would have to start all the way over from scratch on everything, so be very careful when deciding to finish the game. The point of "no return" is the Well of Souls where you go to fight the last boss. However, even after beating him, the game gives you one more chance to reload your last save before starting a new game.

Playthrough New Game+


You can play on Apocalyptic if you have not done so yet. Focus only on primary missions. You will now be able to get Death to level 30.

Crucible Pass Content

With this pass you can gift a friend an item for an achievement. You can also play the Crucible Arena having to pass all waves (100 of them) in one sitting and then beat a boss. This is best done once you are level 30 and have very good gear. You have 2 major options for playing it on the Easy setting. One is to complete the game on Normal, then Apocalyptic. After you get the achievement for Apocalyptic, you can choose to load your save instead of starting a New Game+. Do so, and put it on easy. Now complete The Crucible. The other option is if you beat the game on New Game+ the first time around, you can just throw it on easy and work to level 30. After that you can do The Crucible.

Conclusion

This game isn't very difficult, but it has time consuming elements such as collectibles, side quests, backtracking, normal travel, climbing, looting, gear switching, and puzzles. Also, not many people love to play a game twice. Is this a few day rental completion? Not likely. If you have an online game rental account (like Gamefly) or if you purchase it, this could be a nice game to have a completion on, especially if you completing the 1st Darksiders game.

Pay It Forward 10

The earliest you can obtain this is your first visit to Tri-Stone. Make sure you redeem your code for the Crucible Pass found on the back of your manual in your game box. If you do not have this, you will have to buy it from the marketplace. Once you get to Tri-Stone, go to the snake emblem on your map that is called a "Tome". Interact with it. Press .

Once you are done, pick your item to send and press to send the gift. You cannot get this back unless they give it back, so if it's a random name send them a bad item.

Note: You can use your own Xbox accounts to get this (a secondary gold or silver account).



Feeding Time 20
Level Up Your 1st Possessed Weapon

You must first find a possessed weapon. These are rare drops from enemies or chests that are highlighted red when on the ground. In your inventory they actually are called "possessed". Pick your first one up and the game will tell you about that type of weapon. Go into your menu and press on the possessed weapon to bring up a new menu. You can now sacrifice your other equipment in order to level up your possessed one. Get it one level to gain the achievement.



Epic! 10
Death Reaches Level 30

Level 30 is the max level for your character to get. You will need to play on a New Game+ in order to gain this level. By the time you beat the game once and have done all quests, you will be around level 22. Continue on in the new game in order to reach 30.


Abracadabra 30
Open all Death Tombs

There are a total of 4 death tombs you must open. They are like treasure rooms and give you gear and special items. They are big doors with a dragon statue above them and have colored gems on the door. In order to open them, you have to collect 10 Book of the Dead Pages to create a chapter and sell it to Vulgrim who in return gives you a key. The 4 keys require a total of all 40 pages.





Location 1: The Nook


Fast Travel to Lost Temple entrance. You then must head South to find the door.

Location 2: Lair of the Deposed King.

This is at the very bottom of the Lair of the Deposed King. When you enter, keep going down the stairs until you reach the very bottom door.

Location 3: Lostlight

This is near the Vulgrim shop. As you travel forward you will see this door on your left.

Location 4: Shadow's Edge

When you get here, traveling towards Black Stone you will see this door to your right.

To find all the pages, follow this walkthrough HERE.



Is There Anyone Else? 30
Complete The Crucible

Crucible Pass required. Found on the back of the game manual.

You will need to have redeemed your Crucible code to be able to play this. You must proceed in the game until you defeat the Guardian. Once you do, visit a tome. There you can start the quest. There will be waves of enemies you must fight. You must keep proceeding through the game to gain all waves in order to complete this quest. You might as well wait until you have completed the game and gotten to level 30 and have a lot of good gear for this (you can start a new game+). You may not complete all waves until you are at least level 25, meaning you have to do it on a new game anyways.

Waves 1-25: This is the first set. You must defeat the Guardian.
Waves 26-50: You must defeat the Wailing Host
Waves 51-75: You must defeat Samael
Waves 76-100: Level up to 25


Respec Yourself 20
Your First Respec

You can respec your skills through Vulgrim. He is first found in The Weeping Crag as you play through the main quest. He will charge you 1000 coins to respec. Once you make the purchase, the achievement will unlock. You can dashboard out and get your money back if you did not wish to actually do this.


Bravo Old Chap 20
Defeat Wicked K

Crucible Pass required. Found on the back of the game manual.

You may fight this enemy after completing all of the Crucible waves in one visit (you can die and restart the waves in sections of 25). Please see "Is There Anyone Else" achievement description for more info on the Crucible. Once you see him available in the wave options, choose to fight him. A structure will rise and you will have to climb it to the top. If for some reason your character is glitching while climbing (happens sometimes), go ahead and reload. Once you unlock the right to fight Wicked K, you will always have the option. Wicked K blocks a lot but isn't too bad on easier difficulties.

Follow this walkthrough HERE.


A True Horseman 90
Complete the game on APOCALYPTIC

This difficulty is the hardest you can start at. All of the difficulties stack. You can choose to go in and do this right away if you feel brave. Otherwise, I suggest just playing on Normal and then doing this difficulty on a New Game+. This wave you are fully leveled and have all your other achievements done. You can just focus on doing the main quest and burning through the game as quick as possible.


Four My Brother 90
Complete the game on NORMAL

A Stroll In The Demonic Park 30
Complete the game on any difficulty setting

Once you actually get there, you have to follow directions from collectibles you find called Soul Arbiter's Scroll. There are also Soul Arbiter's Sacred Scrolls, but they just tell you how to go secret directions for extra chests. I personally did not follow the secret routes because you still have to follow the exit routes and it would make it extremely time consuming. Below are the directions you need to follow to get to the Soul Arbiter.

The Mad Queen 10
Complete The Mad Queen

Story related, can't be missed.

This quest is very short, and only requires you to talk to Lilith and gain the Phasewalker. You will get to Blackstone and when you enter the fortress, go through the East door and up the stairs to talk to her. After the scene plays out, the achievement unlocks.


Stains of Heresy 10
Complete Stains of Heresy

Story related, can't be missed.

This is a primary quest and will be completed during the main storyline. It is near the end of the game and requires a lot of puzzle solving.


Mass Ruckus 10
Equip elite items to all slots

There are a total of 7 slots you need to equip elite armor on. Elite armor items have a purple font color. You must obtain an elite Scythe, Secondary Weapon, Shoulder, Armor, Gloves, Boots, and Talisman. You can obtain these randomly from chests/enemies, or you may buy random elite items from Vulgrim's Shop. Buy the Ornate Box from him for 10,000 Gilt and 8 Boatman Coins. You can dashboard if you don't get the piece you need, or play around with it on a separate save since there are a limited amount of Boatman Coins in the game (100 total).

As you progress in the game, you may buy them from shops for a steep price. Therefore, it's actually pretty easy to obtain the gear if you have the funds. You can also trade with people in this thread HERE for the gear. Maybe someone will be nice if you're having trouble.


Diamond Geezertron 10

The Book of the Dead is a form of collectibles. You must obtain all pages to complete the book. This is a side-quest given by Vulgrim. He is for located in The Weeping Crag area.

This boss is the 3rd of a trio that you must find to give to the Lord of Bones. The quest you find him in is called "The Court of Bones". He is a very straight forward boss that you just keep attacking. He will jump on a spider a couple of times, but it just makes him even that easier to hit.

Thanks for another great guide Tyger! I did want to point you in the direction of my Shaman quest thread. Its a side-quest and I think it might be missable to those going back through the game after beating it.

I cannot find a single stingers nest to get the Dew required for the mission, and I believe it is because I beat the game and the nests are not respawning anymore. I spent a good 5 hours looking for one, and am ready to just call it quits and start a new game.

Once again, not 100% sure, but this may not be possible to those going back after beating the game mopping up quests because I cannot get a stinger to pop up to save my life!!!!! If you find one, or someone figures out a fix, let me know if it was just my problem or something that happens after beating the final boss.

EDIT: I found a stinger in the crucible !!! it counted for my mordent dew!!! I'm extremely happy.

You must have done most of the game before accepting that side quest? I see those stingers quite frequently and in the Shadow Forge there was a nest that kept respawning every time I ran through it, even when running out then back again. It was the first nest in the game (but I have not revisited yet).

Thanks for the feedback so far, the thing that's making this go slow is the walkthrough part I'm trying to finish.

The "Gnomad" achievement isn't story related. It relies on finding 4 well-hidden collectable evil garden gnomes.

Yes, I completely beat the game before I even knew about the blind priestess or whatever, hahaha! but the nests seem to not spawn after you defeat the boss, at least not for me anyway.

For the gifting achievement the person you send the gift to has to have played the game or it tells you they don't have a saved game and will not allow you to send it which means no achievement.

For Full Potential all you have to do is buy everything from Thane and Draven.

Thane is in the Forge Lands and Draven is in the Dead Lands in the Eternal Throne.

Great guide so far. I only need 4 more achievements but this will definitely help out the people who are just getting this game.

Make that Thane or Draven. I got this to pop after buying everything Draven had and nothing from Thane. Thought I'd put that out there...

dont know about just Draven, but when you purchase everything Thane has nothing happens. so it's either just Draven or both Thane and Draven.

Thane has about a dozen moves to purchase. Once you get to Draven, he has all the moves that Thane has, plus about another 10 special move upgrades to buy, once you buy the last of them FROM DRAVEN, the achievement pops.

I am still working on temple. You checked my misc guide? I believe i got that page. After unlocking the main gate in that area, climb back on the chain and backtrack to the page.

as a heads up, you mention that Karkinos is one of the bosses you need to kill for Like A Noss.

the one you want is Argus the Deposed King.

I know you said you didn't need help, but I felt it any way. For the "Diamond Geezerton" achievement, you do NOT need to get every skill in one tree. You simply need to put one skill point in the final skill in either tree. Both of these skills become available for upgrade at level 20.

Also for the "Full Potential" achievement, you need to buy all the basic moves from Thane in Tri-Stone and all of the advanced moves from Draven in the Eternal Throne.

Hey Tyger7, bro your description for pay it forward is wrong.
I tried gifting to a friend who hasnt played the game and i was unable to do so. it says something like cant gift unless they have a darksiders 2 save file, just thought id give u the heads up cause your guides r usually spot on and a major help.

A True Horseman

I am just about completed my first playthrough, just playing normal have almost all the side quests done etc, when I get prompted to start "New Game +" will is prompt me to select difficulty or do I have to go in an change it to Apocalyptic? Since it prompts you when you change difficulty at all that you will "get the achievement for the lowest difficulty you were set at?" Like if I start new game + and then have to change it to apocalyptic when the game starts up will I still get the apocalyptic achievement at the end?

You will be prompted to change the difficulty. Starting a new game+ is essentially just like starting a new game. You select before you begin playing.

Just would like to clarify a few things for certain achievements:
  • Like A Noss - There is no Karkinos creature for this quest (or in the game). It is Argul, in the Lair of the Deposed King.
  • Epic! - 30 will be obtained in NG+, not just "likely". It's the only way for you to get it since the first playthrough is capped at 20 for monster EXP. The highest you will get is level 22 from quest EXP alone.
  • Bravo Old Chap - You have to defeat all of the waves in one sitting to fight Wicked K.
  • To Move a Mountain - It's The Lost Temple.
  • Tears of the Mountain - The location is called Drenchfort, not Drenchwork.

Best of luck with your guide.

Thumbs up Gift Achievement

If you have to gift a friend that has played the game to unlock the achievement simply play the game on a silver account that you have created. Have them on your friend list and gift them the item. Easy!!
