Dust: An Elysian Tail

Dust: An Elysian Tail Achievements

The Stuff of Legends

Earn a Four-Star Rating in EVERY Challenge Arena  

Challenge arenas are hidden around the worlds map. There will be a small tutorial with information about them the first time you find one. They're basically time trial obstacle courses. I suggest you wait until later in the game to make these easier. I found the double jump ability very helpful. The vine climb ability is also required for some of them. Any arenas you've previously found will be marked on your map by a red area.

There are 6 arenas of increasing difficulties. The first couple are very easy. The time limit on the last few are very strict. You'll most likely have to play through the courses a few times and memorize the path to score 4 stars.

Scoring works on a points system. At the end of the arena, your score is tallied. Each arena has a required score for four stars. Killing an enemy scores 100 points, smashing orbs scores 500 points, and your time left adds to your score at the end. Taking damage causes you to lose 100 points. Smashing every orb and killing every enemy is usually enough to earn you 3 stars. You'll also have to finish with enough time on the clock to bring push your score into the 4 star threshold. 

They're easy enough to find, provided with the locations on a map. If you're still having trouble, this locations guide will show you how to get to each arena starting from the world map. If you're having trouble completing the arena, use the arenas walkthrough.

Pro tip: Replay the challenges without trying for a good time and make sure you remember what comes up after every jump, corner and portal. I 4 starred all 6 pretty easily, only had trouble with the one challenge you have to constantly teleport through, all I did was learn which colors brought me where and which ones had lights to break and it was a lot easier.

If there is enemies do it when you can OP them and the rest is up to your timing and skills. Pretty challenging, which is what a achievement should be about.

5 and 6 were definitely my favorite of em all. was sub 50 for a good bit on 5 and sub 200 on 6. just about making a pattern and just going through the motions as efficiently as possible.

It won't unlock! Can anyone help? I just got the last 4 stars and it didn't unlock. Do I need to update the game or something?
