  • 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.
Karkinos is in the game. It's the boss for Drenchfort while doing Tears of the Mountain quest. You even get a special hammer for killing him called "Masher of Karkinos".

Thanks for the corrections and thanks to everyone else for their input!

Shouldn't the BFA also be counted for Online pass needed. You can't get it without it.

Guess that does technically count. Changed it, thanks.

Is anyone following the walkthrough I am making? I would like feedback on it on how it's working out please. That way I can make changes if need be.

You can only do one NG+ per save file. After that you have to start over.

new game + is a once only and the only stuff that carries over is your level, money, and gear. all side quests and collectibles will be reset to zero.

in all honesty, the hardest difficulty isn't that hard. i did it on my first play through and all i would recommend is learn to dodge and when you get the opportunity, get weapons and armor that boost health, crit% and Crit damage.

once you get a setup that lets you replenish your health through combat, the game becomes much easier. In fact, the last boss was a joke

If this is going to be an accurate guide then next to Glitchy Achievements the NO needs to be changed to YES. Besides all the regular glitches, and the game-breaking glitches, many people are also having multiple achievements not unlocking when they should, or glitching on them, altogether. In fact, this guide should come with one big GLITCH ALERT so people referencing the guide to decide if they want to play the game have a full awareness of what they are getting into. I know you make a brief annotation of glitch reports at the bottom of your guide, but saying there have been a "few" but nothing "consistant" is misleading when there multiple reports on many sites of achievements/trophies not popping and glitches that are game-breaking.

Note: I'm not criticizing your guide, in fact, I generally like your guides, but fair is fair. People should be aware that this shit can happen, so they can make an informed decision as to whether they really want to risk a possible complete waste of their time or not.

Nice work. And like the guide says, it's obviously a work in progress and a lot of this info is just starting to crop up. Looks good.

Just beat the game on Apocalyptic on my first playthrough (playing on PC) and I will agree that it's not that hard. I'd recommend starting there then you only have to play New Game+ until you reach level 30.

Also, once you get Achidna's Fangs (Legendary claws that drop from a story-related boss) the game becomes MUCH easier. The damage isn't so hot but the life leech is insane. I use a slower weapon for damage then switch out to the Fangs when I need to recover health.

Love the game by the way, despite the glitches.

I wish they would have called it BFA 2.0 or something, and not just BFA. Kind of like the Seriously achievements in GoW.

First of all, I want to say that I am absolutely loving your walkthrough so far. The only thing I'd like to mention are the 4 side quests you get after defeating Thane. I'm following your guide and I've caught up to where it was last updated (Judicator's Tomb). After the initial receiving of those side-quests (near the start), they haven't been "finished" in your step-by-step guide. Am I safe to complete them? Or were you planning on doing them further ahead in the guide?

I appreciate the effort you're putting in on this, thanks very much!

Thanks! Well for that quest i was kind of just rolling them into one. Rest assured you won't miss anything since those finished quests will finish whether I write it or not

Nothing is missable because you can go back and find all the collectibles/side quests before you start NG+. However, as mentioned in the guide, the achievement to equip an elite armor piece to each slot can become a tedious grind if you don't do it by the end of the game and sell all of your equipment.

As for the hours stated to get 1000 GS in the game, I would say 30-35 hours is very accurate. I think it took me around 31 hours total

Not true, I've got one missable coin I can't get because of the guy that throws you over the wall no longer helps ):
Coin 35 in the videos.

That doesn't matter. Coins aren't related to achievements. They're just currency used with Vulgrim.

There is no quest to collect boatman coins. As far as the stones for Blackroot go, you can spend them whenever. As long as you find them all you'll complete the quest and get the achievement.

another question about:

Quote:
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.
are these items dropped? and are all items with purple text elite? they dont have to have elite in the name?

reason i asked, is that i havent purchased one but i have a purple item in all but one (think the gloves). so if i happen to buy and it comes up the gloves and equip it the cheave should pop?

tygers description seems to imply it should be harder.

Yes, all purple texted items are Elite items.

The way I did it: I saved, bought the necessary items, equipped them, got the cheevo and quit the game. So I didn't lose any money.

It's the same thing as Apocalyptic except you only get one life. If you die in combat then it erases your save and you have to start over from the beginning. You get absolutely nothing for completing it and (as far as everyone knows) nothing changes at all. It's stupid. Oh and you can't do a NG+ Nightmare playthrough. So if you're thinking of starting it you'll have to start at level 1.

Its a fantastic guide and must be a really hard guide to write so although i am pushing u i fully understand but could u post what u got plz.
