Peter Molyneux's long anticipated sequel to the original Fable is a terrific game. The achievements themselves are a great variety and very fun to try and collect. However, the fact that a friend can get you most of the achievements without you doing anything drags the difficulty score down.

Introduction
Welcome to Fable 2. This game has a total of 50 achievements and requires only one playthrough to get 1000. Of the achievements, 8 are unlocked simply by playing through the story and will give you 450. The remaining 42 achievements will require you to perform certain acts, collect items and trade dolls online with friends.

The game offers two playing modes, offline story and online coop. While playing the online coop, the visiting player will not play with their actual character. Instead you will choose the appearance of one of several models and choose weapons similar to those owned by the host. This is important to remember when trading achievements with one another, since a player must be in your character's universe to receive achievements from you.

At the time of writing this road map, there are two game ending glitches in the game. The first occurs after traveling through Rookridge to Oakvale for the first time.

Spoiler
When you arrive at Oakvale, you will be told to go to the Temple of Light to see the abbot. When you arrive the abbot will tell you he has a mission for you, but wants you to earn more renown first. When you walk up to the abbot for the first time, DO NOT LEAVE. Let him finish his scene. Failure to do this will make the abbot unresponsive and thus make you unable to progress the story further
The second glitch occurs with the sidequest called "Rescuing Charlie."

Spoiler
When you accept this quest from Charlie's grandmother at the Gypsy Camp, you will go into the "Tomb of Heroes." The glitch itself occurs after you rescue Charlie and leave the Tomb. If you run forward, you will get the "Skip Conversation" option stuck at the top of your screen and there is currently no way to make it go away. The best way to prevent this is to allow the Hollow Men to kill Charlie after you defend him while he tries to open the sarcophagus. This will also allow you to get Charlie's top hat
The only missable achievement in the game is "The Executioner." The reason this achievement is missable is if you accept the quest at the Temple of Light to defend the Wellspring, you will destroy the Temple of Shadows. The best way to avoid this is to either sacrifice the ten people prior to accepting that quest or join the game of a friend who has the achievement and watch them sacrifice someone.

Step #1: Prepare For Your Playthrough
Before beginning your playthrough, the following is a list of useful links that you will most likely want to use at least once during your playthrough:

Demon Doors, Legendary Weapons & Expression Statues
Ruler Of Albion - Breakdown and Complete List of Properties
The Completionist - List of Expressions
Doll Buying/Selling/Trading/Giving Away Thread
Item or Weapon Buying/Sell/Trading... KEEP IT HERE!
Achievement Buying/Selling/Trading/Giving Away Thread (Co-Op Partners too)

Some of you may notice that there are no walkthroughs linked. This is because they aren't necessary. For the most part the game literally gives you a line to walk to the next location required to progress your current quest.

Step #2: Time to Actually Play the Game
And so our story begins.... The great thing about Fable 2 is that there isn't much you have track while playing through it. Some of you may want to keep track of what Gargoyles and silver keys you've collected. You can do that by taking the lists HERE and HERE and simply marking off the ones you've collected. It's important to note that if you reload your game while in a quest, all the keys and gargoyles you've collected since your last save will be reset. Once you get to the end of the game, it's time to do a little trick.

Spoiler
After you take the seal to the Shadow Court for Reaver, if you return to Reaver's mansion you will not be able to do anything else until you finish the game. Before finishing the game, it will autosave for you right after you spend a day in the perfect world with Rose. After this save you will have a brief showdown with Lucian and then have to pick from one of three choice cards. Figure out which choice you want (I suggest the middle one) and then choose the other two first. Right after you choose a card the achievement will unlock. Once this happens press the menu button and go to your dashboard. Repeat this process for the other card and then watch the ending of your preferred choice.

DLC

Knothole Island

Playthrough the quests on this DLC to make all of the items for The Collector to become available, then buy them all. Note that there are certain conditions to make these items appear for sale; see the achievement guide for a list. Complete the quest where you sort out the weather problems of the island, and The Meteorologist will come naturally as you play through. You will probably have collected a few books around the island, but use guide to collect any you have missing. Collecting all the books will unlock The Bibliophile.

See The Future

There are a lot of fun achievements included in this DLC. Refer to the achievement guide for the specifics, but these will involve making love, shooting people in the nuts 25 times, scaring, disgusting and making people laugh 5 times, and dressing as a chicken and kicking some poor innocent birds.
There are a few collecting achievements in this DLC. You will need to find dyes for The Colourist, find demon doors for The Concierge and statuettes for The Con Artist. Full location lists can be found below in the achievement guide.
The Visionary is the only story related achievement in the See The Future DLC, but you will unlock this at the end.
Finally, head for the Colosseum. There are three achievements available here. Utilize the flit switches that will increase your multiplier getting you higher scores. The Gladiator and The Multiplier should come pretty easy if you are doing this right. The hardest Colosseum achievement is The Combatant. This is awarded for killing the Necromancer; he will be one of the later enemies you face. The time clock spell is good to use against him as this will slow down the time allowing you to bombard him with other powerful spells.

Conclusion
If you are missing achievements at this point you should utilize the achievement trading thread linked above. The DLC adds an extra 10 or 15 hours onto the game and is great fun. Also, if you found that getting 1350 in this game was easy it's because Webb put a lot of work into the guide. You owe him a cookie and a hug.

The Pooch Pamperer5
Play fetch with your dog, or see another Hero's dog play. (15) 

So long as you have a rubber ball, you can play fetch with the dog. Bring up the expression wheel, go to Dog > Fetch to get this achievement. If you need a ball, try the general shop on the east side of the Bowerstone Market bridge.

The Archaeologist5
Dig up something the dog has discovered, or see another Hero do so. (3) 

For this one, make sure you have a spade. I'm fairly sure you get one anyway, but if not, try the general shop on the east side of the Bowerstone Market bridge. Then, when your dog barks and it says "Dig Spot" above him, turn to face him and let him guide you to that spot. Once there, stand above him and press down on the d-pad.

The Dog Trainer5
Teach your dog a trick, or see another Hero's dog learn one. (4) 

This will drop with the story no doubt as you find treasure and use the books inside. If not, go to the book shop in Bowerstone Market and buy one of the many dog trick books on sale. To use it, go to Start > Items > Books/Documents and then press .

The Persuader5
Convince a villager to give you a present, or see another Hero do so. (2) 

This is a fairly simple achievement. There are times in the game where villagers will want to give you gifts. Maybe some food or a discount. If this is one of those times, a symbol will appear above their head, if it's greyed out, you'll have to socialise with them to get it coloured. As soon as it is, you can press to receive the gift.

The Show-off5
Impress a villager with a perfect expression, or see another Hero do so. (3) 

The perfect expressions revolves around the extended expression aspect. To perform one, find someone, target them with the and then click to find their likes. If they like Dancing, go to the Expression Wheel, choose, Fun, then Dancing, but instead of pressing it once, hold it down and release when the moving scale is on green.

The Romantic10
Take a villager on a perfect date, or tag along to one. Location and expressions are all-important. (26) 

Location and expressions indeed. Simply target (left trigger) and press to find out their perfect spot, perfect expression or perfect gift. Some show them, some don't, so find someone that shows the place and expression. Then, get them to follow you there; it might take a bit of groundwork to get them there and be careful of the sexes issue (women might not like women), but once there, perform the perfect expression (see The Show Off) and if that doesn't work, give them their perfect gift. I personally got it with just the place and expression.

The Spouse10
Marry a villager, or attend the wedding of another Hero. (3) 

Simple... get hitched. All it takes is the same monotonous usage of their favourite expression, preferably perfect with the odd switch around and then a ring. The success of the star rating of the ring value depends on the target of your affections. Whore's will accept 1 star and upper class will insist on 5 star. Once they've taken the ring, you'll need to attach them to a house. So that means, a.) buying one and then b.) getting them to follow you to the house and then clicking on the sign out the front and selecting "Set as Marital Home".

The Parent10
Have a child, or be there for the birth of another Hero's child. (9) 

Simply perform "The Spouse" and then woo her upstairs for some unprotected sex. If you are having trouble bedding her, try buying the Come Hither Dear book from Bowerstone Market's book shop.

The Hunter5
Kill a sweet, innocent, fluffy bunny rabbit (remember, safety's off!) (11) 

Short and sweet one this. Find a bunny, get the expression wheel up, click the skull to turn the safety off and fire the little bugger with . Rabbits can be found mostly in the Bower Lake region and in the fields at Oakfield.

The Gargoyle25
Find the gargoyles' legendary treasure. (52) 

There are 50 gargoyles to shoot and 50 keys to collect.

To shoot the gargoyles, upgrade the Ability → Skill → Dextrous Styles to level 2: Aimed Ranged Attack which allows you to hold and aim using the . Once upgraded, the gargoyles will insult you when you are within a close proximity. Hearing them will help while using this guide.

To help with the silver keys, upgrade the dog's treasure hunting skills to Level 4 (check the Book Trader often).

Real reward: Shoot the wall behind the Rotten Apple chest, follow the passage to the next room, open the chest and receive The Rammer. Achievement “The Gargoyle” Unlocked.

The Chicken Kicker5
Kick a chicken a good distance, or see one getting kicked. (5) 

I'm presuming 10 feet is the distance here as I kicked chickens for ages getting 7,8 and 9 yards but it finally unlocked at 11 yards. This is obtainable as soon as you start the game, but if like me, you were having trouble getting it,; up your strength stats so you can kick the blighter further. Chickens can be found in Oakfield and the Gypsy Camp, amongst other places. To kick a chicken, simply press the button when close to one.

The Cliff Diver5
Cliff dive 500 feet, or see another Hero do so. (6) 

When doing the “Treasure Island of Doom” quest in Bloodstone, you’ll be instructed to go to Sinkhole Caverns and beyond to follow up on the pirate ghost lead. When you enter the caverns, you’ll be sent along a shaft and then be prompted to dive with the button. Do it and you’ll have this achievement. Also at Lion’s Head Isle are 15k in gold, 1 gargoyle and 1 key (all in the Bloodstone stats).

The Workhorse10
A Hero must achieve a high-enough chain while performing a job. (4) 

There are many jobs around Albion that can earn you some pretty serious gold but for this achievement, all you have to do is take one and get a streak of 10 hits in a row. You can be a barman, wood chopper, blacksmith to name but a few. Remember, these are no available all the time, check the Quests/Maps > Jobs section in the start menu to see what's available.

The Hero of Many Names5
Change your Hero's title, or see another Hero change theirs. (1) 

Fairly simple achievement here. All you need to do is seek the help of a "Town Crier" and pay a small fee for a new title. You'll start out as Sparrow, so you need to change it to something else. Town Criers can be found in Oakfield and Bowerstone Market, so head there. Sometimes, you don't even need to pay and your renown and acts will unlock free ones.

The Teaser5
Make bandits respond to expressions with fear, anger, mirth, and confusion... during combat! (31) 

Considering this is only a 5 point achievement, it's actually one of the trickiest in the game. We're not sure why ... Maybe it has something to do with successfully getting a bad guy to respond to 4 different category expressions while he's trying to rip you limb from limb. Nevertheless, there are 3 distinct strategies to use to get it and we'll start with the easiest out the 3.

Strategy 1 - The Fairfax Castle Strategy - Fairly simple in the end, but tough to get to. In order to do this strategy, you must have completed the game and amassed 1 million in gold to buy the Fairfax Castle. After buying the castle and sleeping in the bed one night, the place will be invaded by bandits. Firstly, you must fight your way down to the Throne room and clear the room of all but one bandit (preferably the small weak ones and one that uses a sword and not a gun). Then position yourself behind the throne and there is a place there where for some reason (call it glitchy AI) the bandit will not attack and will just stand there. When you have that sweet spot, stand, make sure he is targeted (red glow) and then use of of the 4 expression types on him (Fun, Flirt, Rude & Scary), one after another. Each one he should respond with a short quip to it and on the fourth the achievement should unlock.

Strategy 2 - The Weaponless Bandit Strategy - Firstly, get down a pack of bandits to the final one and you'll need to shoot his weapons away from his without killing him ... use a weak gun may help? When you do, he'll be swinging his fists around but his reach won't be as good. While he's doing that, get a little distance and use one of all 4 expression types (Fun, Flirt, Rude & Scary) and on the fourth, the achievement should unlock.

Strategy 3 - The Bandit & The Tree Strategy - Tricky, but possible out in the woods (Brightwood maybe). What you need to do is position a tree or clump of trees inbetween you and a bandit, so much that he literally tries to go through the tree to get you. When he's doing that, make sure he is targeted (red glow) and then use of of the 4 expression types on him (Fun, Flirt, Rude & Scary), one after another. Each one he should respond with a short quip to it and on the fourth the achievement should unlock.

Seems a lot for 5 points, but completionists will want to nail this bad boy. It also appears that it doesn't have to be done on the same bandit, so if you must, chose 4 different ones.

The Property Magnate10
A property must be sold for twice the price it was bought for. (14) 

Simple, choose a property early on, I suggest Bowerstone Market, "The Silk Moon", next door to the tavern. Buy it and then fill it with as much 5 star furniture as possible. Chances are you won't be able to buy it all at once from the furniture store, so either a.) buy and then return a week later (sleep if you must) or b.) buy and then go to Bloodstone and buy it there. Once the house has been filled up. Play the game, do quests to improve your renown and also buy stuff from round town to improve the revenue and richness of the area. Then, go back and sell.

Chances are you'll get it for that alone, but the good thing with the Silk Moon is that, if not, there is a trophy plaque on the stairs where you can attach trophies whilst in Redecorate Mode which significantly adds to the value of the house.

Thanks to Olioster for the direction.

The Rogue5
Steal something undetected from a building while there are people nearby, or see another Hero do so. (1) 

I found this fairly simple when the shops (or even try the local Inn) were open by simply going upstairs and rustling through one of their cupboards or draws. Remember, it says undetected so don't let anyone see you and make sure you weren't followed.

The Illustrated Hero5
Tattoo every part of your Hero's body, or see another Hero do so. (5) 

Fairly simple this one really, especially if you get the two tattoo cards from the http://www.fable2.com site. The tattoos come in two forms. Head and body. Simply buy one for each from a tattooist or select the two in your items menu and the achievement will pop up. Don't worry, you can pay to have the tattoo removed.

The Executioner10
Sacrifice ten people in the Temple of Shadows, or see another Hero do so. (22) 

WARNING! If you're doing a "Good" play through, you must sacrifice 10 villagers before you complete the quest "Defender Of The Light". This occurs early in the game. If you do this quest beforehand, there will be no Shadow-worshipers to help sacrifice your victims.

After you complete the quest "A Bridge Too Far" (where you kill Dash for Barnum to repair the bridge in Rookridge) you have access to the quest "The Temple of Shadows" located in Rookridge. Talk to the guard, eat the crunchy chicks to hear his funny comments and enter.

Now complete the quest "Sacrificing to the Shadows".

Go downstairs to see the Wheel of Misfortune and the lever to pull and talk to the worshipper there. (If the room with the wheel is full of shadowy enemies, you've missed your chance and will need to start a new game.)

Go to a well populated area (Bowerstone Market or Old Bowerstone) and convince a total of 10+ people (not kids, they won't leave the area) to follow you. You need high renown for more people to follow you. If you must, just do 3 or 4 at a time. Dance for them, play the Lute and/or show them your trophy several times.

To make someone follow you, pick a target with a purple outline and pull so they have a white outline (white means you have their attention). Then press , select Social, then Follow. An icon with two heads will appear over them indicating they are following you.

After you have your group, fast travel to Region --> Rookridge --> The Temple of Shadows. All of your followers will be with you. Get them to stand in the middle and pull the lever. Be sure they die... a sex change is not dead. Repeat until you have 10 total sacrificed.

(Remember you can invite a friend for achievement credit).

The Gambler10
A Hero must win 500 gold at a pub game in one sitting, having tried each game type at least once. (28) 

Firstly, make sure you have played each of the variant games; Keystone, Fortune's Tower and Spinnerbox. Each one can be found in a different area -Keystone (Bowerstone Market), Fortune's Tower (Westcliff), Spinnerbox (Oakfield) - Then do the following.

The best way to win 500 in one sitting is by going to Bloodstone where they play Bloodstone which is a variant of Keystone where the rules are backwards. Bet to lose and you will win. Bet on the 3 outer arch, and then on the inner arch keep betting on 4,5,6,7 and maybe 8 and 9 if you’re feeling lucky. Took me about 10-15 mins to get the achievement this way.

Note: Once you have made a profit of 500, to get the achievement, you must leave the table.

The Bigamist10
Get married a second time, whilst already married, or attend the second wedding of another Hero. (2) 

Perform "The Spouse" twice, but do it in different regions. I found that having a wife in Oakfield out the way in a cottage worked and then marrying a whore in Bloodstone because they are hella easy to woo.

The Swinger5
Take part in a debauched bedroom party with several participants. (6) 

Hookers are the way forward here, so Bloodstone seems like the best bet. When they proposition you, simply give them the Thumbs Up or even better, use the Come Back to My Place expression. Do that to 2 ... or even 3 if you must and then find a bed, whether it be a house you've purchased or an inn; it works. It only takes 3 to get this achievement, you and two others.

The Pied Piper10
Start a party where at least five villagers are dancing, or see another Hero do so. (8) 

Fairly simple again. All you need to do is head to a bard in a busy place and then when the bard plays, start dancing using the extended expression but don't let go until after the achievement pops. You'll find bards at all the inns pretty much and for 10 gold, this achievement is yours. Personally, I found myself getting this in lil old Oakfield.

The Party Animal10
Get five villagers drunk in under three minutes, or see another Hero do so. (5) 

Fairly simple in Bowerstone Market, especially if you are a loved celebrity. Go to the pub and buy at least 5 bottles of alcohol, then head outside and perform an extended dance until there are at least 5 adults around. Then, nail the finish and start handing out the alcohol as a gift as quickly as you can. Remember, Gift is under the Social part of the expression wheel and the alcohol falls under Food. 5 in 3 minutes. Simple, you can do it in less than 1.

The Menace To Society5
Commit an act of public indecency, or see another Hero commit one. (9) 

First, you need to purchase (The Perv's Handbook - Vulgar Thrust from the Bowerstone Market book store) or earn the Vulgar Thrust expression. Then, wander out in to a civilised place; Fairfax Gardens or Bowerstone Market are fine. Go to the menu, Clothing > Outfits > No Clothes, and then run around finding people to do the Vulgar Thrust to. Not everyone will be offended, but when someone is, they'll report you and you'll get a 10 gold fine for Public Indecency.

The Black Knight10
Shoot the weapons from a hollow man's hands, blow off his head and then kill him for good! (18) 

Harder and easier than it sounds. Firstly, you need to upgrade your Skill, Dexetrous Styles to Level 4 which awards you with the Sub Targeting skill. Then, when you see a Hollow Man, step back and press and hold to lock on, then press the to select the body parts. Once you’ve shot off his weapons, left and right. Go for a head shot to get this achievement.

The Duellist10
String together a full-speed chain attack, or see another Hero do so. (55) 

Firstly, you'll need to level up Skill > Speed to level 5 (although it appears this is not a necessity) and then you'll need to level up Strength to at least Brutal Styles 3 (Chain Attacks). Then find some space, I recommend the shore line in the Bower Lake region.

Once you have all that, all that this requires is around a chain of 5 chain attacks. A chain attack is an attack that rolls off the last attack, so pressing at the peak of the previous swing will unleash a chain attack, which is indicated by the blue swing. You need to chain 5 of these together, one after another for the achievement.

I say around, because sometimes it didn't register that I did that many. In fact, previous to my attempt for the achievement, I did 6 together, but when I got it, I chained together 9 but got it after the 5th.

The Sharpshooter10
Hit three enemies with one shot, or see another Hero do so. (25) 

It can be quite tricky this one. You only need to hit them and not kill them, so it's best to move in to a position where you can channel them through a door or something. Best with bandits in some of the dungeons you trawl through. Of course, you'll need to use one of the blunderbuss guns ... Try a master or steel if at all possible. It took me one and a half playthroughs to get this and I got it by luck in the end, but my second playthrough was as an agile, gun specialist. So try that.

If that doesn't work, Xerofox suggests doing the "Treasure Island of Doom" mission and waiting till you fight the Captain on the ship and running up the stairs and shooting an arrow from the crossbow in to the crowd of ghost pirates that will rush up the stairs.

If all else fails, try the Crucible and on the Hollow Man stage, run around, get them all to respawn and back in to a corner and shoot like crazy. One of those three methods should help you get this achievement.

The Archmage10
A Hero must kill five human enemies with one spell. (8) 

There isn't much a level 4 or 5 Inferno spell won't demolish. Notice it says humans so beetles aren't an option. Level up to 4 or 5 as quick as you can and then when you get to the Spire on the way to securing the services of the second hero, you'll be best placed for this achievement. There you are attacked by swarms of human guards and even better is, Garth acts as a decoy. Simply charge up to 5 if possible by holding down the spell and then when there are 5 in the circle, let go and unleash hell.

The Ruler of Albion100
Amass a 2.5 million gold real estate empire, or be there when another Hero does. (31) 

Simply mass a "real estate empire". Easier than it sounds and the best way to get gold fast in Fable 2. Basically, what you need to do is buy and rent out every piece of architecture you can get your hands on; whether you up or lower the rent is up to you. Obviously if you up it, you'll get rich quicker and be able to expand quicker, BUT you'll be a evil, corrupt character.

Buying and renting is a great way to get a regular income of money and simply going to bed at night while your Xbox rests earns rent as well. So simply, buy, rent out and expand. It should not take you ALL the property in Albion for this achievement, but chances are, you'll need the castle because it's worth a million.

To check your current real estate value, go to Start > Logbook > Stats and scroll down some.

Significant Places to Buy:

  • Fairfax Castle - After the game is complete.
  • Cemetery Mansion - After the "Love Hurts" mission.
  • Father Gile's Farm (Brightwood) - After the "Blind Date" mission.
  • Garth's Tower - Sometime later on in the game.
  • Reaver's House - After the game is complete.
The Hoarder25
Collect every silver key, or see another Hero do so. (30) 

See "The Gargoyle."

For a 50 key case when you have collected them all, buy the Fairfax Mansion after the game to receive 50,000 in gold.

The Goth5
A Hero must dye their hair black, and wear a black outfit and black makeup. (21) 

I searched high and low in Bowerstone for the black dye and eventually found it at Fiendish Fashions in Bloodstone. I swear this is the only place to buy this dye. The shop is on the first tier, up from the waterfall, as far south as you can go. Look out for the tailor sign. Then, go to Items, to Dye and then select everything and dye it for this achievement.

The black dye is called Moonless Midnight Dye. It can also be found, first left on the path to Westcliffe in the chest.

The Completionist50
Get all expressions, pet tricks and abilities, or see another Hero do so. (138) 

There are a lot of expressions, dog tricks and abilities to unlock in Fable 2 which makes this a tough achievement. If not the toughest in the game.

There appears to be 33 slots to fill (7 Rude, 7 Scary, 5 Social, 7 Fun and 7 Flirty), they are as follows.

Rude - Play Dead, Kiss My Ass, Chicken, Beg, Point & Laugh, Middle Finger and Vulgar Thrust.
Scary - Slap, Growl, Threaten, Scary Laugh, Feign Attack, Bloodlust Roar, Extort
Social - Follow, Dismiss, Lute, Trophy, Apologise
Fun - Dance, "Hat, Headband, Moustache" , Fart, Sock Puppet, Laugh, Belch, Victory Arm Pump
Flirt - Worship, Come Back To My Place, Pick Up Line, Blow Kiss, Seduce, Whistle, Heroic Pose.

As for the dog, he needs to learn:

Combat & Treasure Hunting to 5 star, Roll Over, Chase Tail, Play Dead, Beg, Backflip, Bunny Hop, Wave, Hide Snout, Growl, Targeted Urination.

All the expressions are as follows:

Rude -
Play Dead = Bowerstone Market Book Store ("Dead Handy")
Kiss My Ass = Earned at 20,000 Renown
Chicken = You start the game with this.
Beg = Learned during Adolescence
Point & Laugh = You start the game with this.
Middle Finger = Bowerstone Market Book Store ("The Finger")
Vulgar Thrust = Bowerstone Market Book Store ("The Perv's Handbook")

Scary -
Slap = You start the game with this
Growl = You start the game with this
Threaten = Learn at 50% evil morality
Scary Laugh = Learned at 10,000 renown
Bloodlust Roar = You start the game with this
Extort = Learned at 100% evil morality
Feign Attack = www.fable2.com and take the right crown at the end.

Social -
Follow = Learned at 100 renown
Dismiss = Learned at 100 renown
Lute = Bowerstone Market General Store
Trophy = Earnt from quests.
Apologize = Learned at 25% good morality

Sock Puppet = Bowerstone Market Book Store ("Sock It To 'Em")
Laugh = Learned at 50% good morality
Belch = Bowerstone Market Book Store ("Belching For Beginners")
Victory Arm Pump = You start the game with this.

Flirt -
Worship = Bowerstone Market Book Store (Book of Workship) - Upstairs in bookcase (may need to purchase).
Come Back To My Place = Bowerstone Market book store ("Come Hither Dear")
Pick Up Line = You start the game with this.

Seduce = Bowerstone Market Book Store ("The Art of Seduction") and/or "Till Death Do Us Part" quest
Whistle = You start the game with this.
Heroic Pose = You start the game with this.

And for the dog:

Combat - 5 star = All books to upgrade can be bought from the Bowerstone Market Book Store.

Roll Over = Bowerstone Market Book Store ("Dog Tricks! Roll Over")
Chase Tail = Bowerstone Market Book Store ("Dog Tricks! Tail Chase
Play Dead = In a chest in Bowerstone Cemetery
Beg = Bowerstone Market Book Store ("Dog tricks! Begging")
Backflip = Win a 2-star Fortune's Tower Tourny in Xbox Life Arcade Pug Games
Bunny Hop = Can be found in a silver key treasure chest (requires 1 key)by the Bower Lake Demon Door.
Wave = Bought from the Bowerstone Market Book Store ("Dog Tricks! The Wave")
Hide Snout = Bowerstone Market Book Store ("Dog Tricks! Hide Snout") and/or random NPC, Gift, Dig Site or chest
Growl = In a chest in Gargoyle Trove (must do the Gargoyle Quest)
Targeted Urination = Bowerstone Market Book Store ("Dog Tricks! Targeted Urination")

Note: If the books aren't there when you go to the Book Store, try again later on in the story, please don't ask, "why isn't this there?". The appearance of books seems to be random. Try buying everything and then going back later if all else fails.

Then finally, to finish, you have to max all your attributes out (Skill, Strength and Will). This is a lot of grinding, if unlike me, you have the Temple of Light still available, sizeable donations could help speed this process up. If not, try and buy the Thunder Strength Potion, Expert Skill Potion, Undiluted Will Potion and the Pure Experience potion for around 10,000 gold, but they give you 62k experience each.

If you are unfortunate to have stepped down the road to darkness early on and have no Temple of Light to donate to, then a good strategy is to buy a Thunder Strength Potion, Expert Skill Potion, Undiluted Will Potion and the Pure Experience Potion from the Bowerstone Market Alchemist and then run to the inn (or your house) and sleep for a week. You must have gold to burn to do this though.

Note: THIS ACHIEVEMENT REQUIRES THE FABLE 2 PUB GAMES REWARDS. IF YOU HAVEN'T PURCHASED THE GAME, WATCH A FRIEND GET THE ACHIEVEMENT OR FIND SOMEONE WITH ALL THE EXPRESSIONS & ABILITIES AND GET THEM TO SELL BACK AND REBUY AN ABILITY WITH YOU IN THEIR GAME.

Note Update: Due to a recent patch, The Completionist no longer needs one of the Fable 2 Pub Games reward to complete, so you should be able to get it without the need for any extra software.

The Paragon15
Reach 100% good or evil, or see another Hero do so. (7) 

Notice the word "or" here. Your choice. Either be ridiculously good which involves saving people, do what would be the "right" choice and acting as a righteous hero (try donating money to the Temple of Light), or be bad to the bone and this can be done by killing innocents and town guards, choosing the evil choices in the two choice quests and easily by joining the Temple of Shadows and sacrificing villagers (easiest way).

To get more good points: Eat tofu, accept gifts, free slaves, play the lute, donate to the Temple of Light, donate gold to beggars (a gift of 200k gold gives you 2,000 good points which is enough to go from 100% bad to 100% good!).

To get more bad points: Kill guards, steal, sacrifice people in the Temple of Shadows.

The Extremist15
Reach 100% purity or corruption, or see another Hero do so. (2) 

Again, either or. I personally found the easiest way to get this was by buying property and either jumping the rent up 100% (corrupt) or letting folks live there free (pure). Obviously, jumping the rent up 100% means you can get more money and more houses and get there quicker. Remember, it pays to be bad.

Other ways to affect the scale are as follows (list non exhaustive):

To get more purity: Protected sex, eating fruits and vegetables.

To get more corruption: Unprotected sex, bigamy, sleep for 7 days.

The Celebrity50
Reach 50,000 renown, or see another Hero do so. (6) 

All quests shell out renown points, so do as many as you can. Quests later on in the game obviously get tougher and net more points, 50,000 isn't really that much when considering some of the later quests are worth 5k plus. Here's a list of worthwhile renown quests which give loads of renown and become available after you’ve achieved the Hero of Will achievement that is tied to the story:

  • Westcliffe Development – Renown 1500
  • Hobbe Squaters – Renown Reward 3500
  • The Blind Date – Renown Reward 3500

The following will become available at some point after you travel through Wraithmarsh:

  • Treasure Island of Doom! – Renown 7500
  • T.O.B.Y – Renown 4000 (Bloodstone)
  • Love Hurts – Renown 8500 (Bowerstone Cemetary)
  • Evil in Wrathmarsh – Renown 4000
  • Something Rotten – Renown 3500 (Rookridge Inn)
  • Brightwood Tower – Renown 3000
  • Rescuing Charlie – Renown 5000

Completing the game is worth 10k renown as well, so bear that in mind.

The Artisan10
Succeed at one job to Level 5, or see another Hero do so. (7) 

There are many jobs around Albion that can earn you some pretty serious gold but for this achievement, you have to go from 0 star to 5 star of whatever chosen profession. You can be a barman, wood chopper, blacksmith to name but a few. Remember, these are no available all the time, check the Quests/Maps > Jobs section in the start menu to see what's available.

The jobs are simple timing mini games. Build up your combos and streaks to get bigger multipliers to save you some time. Time consuming achievement and boring as hell, but I think, the best option is the Wood Chopper as far as gold goes.

The Dollcatcher10
Collect all the Hero dolls, or see another Hero collect them. (790) 

Talk about an annoying achievement. There are 6 (Garth, Reaver, Hammer, Lucien, Theresa and Hero doll) hero dolls in Fable 2. 1 of which can be bought from the General Trade store (the Hero doll (generic with British pants) but you can only unlock one of the other 5 in your game, so swapping them with friends is a necessity. You'll get your character hero doll from the Shooting Gallery in Westcliffe which is the second prize; between 150 and 175 points. It can be quite tricky, but if you concentrate on head shots; you can get +3 for every target instead of +1, so take your time if needs be... But not too long.

Tips for the Shooting Gallery:

  • 1 headshot is equal to 3 body shots, so take that extra second to line up.
  • Practice makes perfect; learning where they pop up and moving is a good way to get ahead.
  • Try to aim for about 60 on sections 1 and 3 (easiest) leaving yourself with 30 for section 2 (although it's more than easy to get a lot more than that).
  • Sticking to one area on the shooting gallery can help. e.g. The roof on section 1, the far left of the bridge and hut on section 2 and the platform on section 3.
  • If it seems impossible to get a headshot because of the scenery, chances are the bullet will pass through it, so take that in to account on some (namely the dude in the doorway on section 1 and the dude on the far left of the bridge on section 2).
  • If you can, try and use the Master Flintlock Pistol because it has good accuracy, good rate of fire and a quick reload time, although, the Championship Pistol is just as good.
The Muse5
Inspire the Bard to compose songs celebrating your great deeds. (4) 

Once you have done enough to warrant your own song, head to an Inn (anywhere in Albion) and pay a bard 10 gold and he'll sing about you. Very amusing achievement and the songs are entertaining as well.

The Companions10
Perform a perfect co-op expression. (43) 

Join together with a friend for this one. Find someone to use this on first and foremost (try a populated area) and then select the same person, doing the same action and extending it to finish at the same time. Do that and the achievement should unlock.

If that fails, try starting at the same time as well and then if that fails, try to find an extendable expression that someone likes and doing it on them.

The Double Threat10
Get a co-op combat bonus. (24) 

Attacking the same targets in co-op gives out a bonus (I presume in XP), so either select the same target to X attack, or even easier, shoot them from far away with your guns (that's how we got it).

The Philanthropist10
Send a gift to an Xbox LIVE friend, or watch another Hero send one. (31) 

I presume it has to be someone on your friend list because of the description, at least, that's how I got it. Simply find a friends orb (speak to them and arrange a meeting place if necessary) and then select with Left Trigger, A to interact, then select Gift and literally give them anything. Hell, it doesn't even need to get there to get the achievement, my first attempt failed but I still got the achievement.

Make sure you can see orbs first; check your settings (Start > Options > Game > Online Orbs - Then set to Friends Only preferably).

The Whippersnapper25
A child Hero must collect five gold pieces. 

Simple achievement here. When you'll start Fable 2, you'll be a wee "whippersnapper" and you'll have to get 5 gold from around Bowerstone Old Town in order to advance in the game. The 5 tasks you need to do to get the 5 pieces of gold are as follows:

  • Collect 5 arrest warrants.
  • Pose for a photo.
  • Clear the warehouse/sabotage it from the bug attack.
  • Collect the drunks booze.
  • Deliver a love letter.
The New Hero50
The terror of Bower Lake must be defeated. (1) 

Once you're all grown up and left the Gypsy Camp, you have to clear the Bandit Camp of Thag the Impatient before you can get to Bowerstone. Follow the golden quest path to find your way there are take out the 3 or 4 waves of bandits before finally taking down Thag.

The Hero of Strength100
Complete The Hero of Strength. (2) 

The first of three of the major quests where you'll have to assist Hammer in getting the water from the The Wellspring Cave. This is story related and cannot be missed or messed up on the way to completing the main story arch.

The Hero of Will100
Complete The Hero of Will. (3) 

The second of three major quests in the main story arch. This time you'll have to enlist the services of Garth, The Hero of Will. This is story related and cannot be missed or messed up on the way to completing the main story arch.

The Hero of Skill100
Complete The Hero of Skill. 

The third and final of the main quests which this time has you heading through Wraithmarsh to Bloodstone to enlist the help of the Hero of Skill. This is story related and cannot be missed or messed up on the way to completing the main story arch.

The Sacrifice25
A Hero must choose 'The Needs of the Many'. (14) 

After defeating the Grand Spire and enlisting the help of The Hero of Skill, the final but albeit brief showdown with Lucien takes place in the Spire. Here you will be offered 3 choices, each with an achievement. For this achievement choose the "Sacrifice" card.

Note: This and the following two achievements can be earned if you save before this final confrontation, choose one, then quit out either by powering down (or go to the dashboard, hit and sign out). Then reload your save and choose the other. Repeat one last time to have all three.

The Family25
A Hero must choose 'The Needs of The Few'. (5) 

After defeating the Grand Spire and enlisting the help of The Hero of Skill, the final but albeit brief showdown with Lucien takes place in the Spire. Here you will be offered 3 choices, each with an achievement. For this achievement choose the "Love" card.

The Egomaniac25
A Hero must choose 'The Needs of the One'. (10) 

After defeating the Grand Spire and enlisting the help of The Hero of Skill, the final but albeit brief showdown with Lucien takes place in the Spire. Here you will be offered 3 choices, each with an achievement. For this achievement choose the "Wealth" card.

The Collector25
Acquire all the mystery items in The Box of Secrets shop, or see another Hero do so. (36) 

For this achievement you need to get every item in The Box of Secrets shop in Knothole Island. You need to finish all three main quests before doing this otherwise not all the items will be available.

The economy rating of the items is very important in your quest to find the rarest items. The items the seller sells are equal to or one star lower than the region economy, so, a low rated region economy means low rated items in the shops. To raise the economy in a region simply put the prices in your shops under 0% and each time you are awarded the money from your shops the economy will raise a bit; to lower the economy, just put the prices over 0%.

To buy multiple copies of an item, buy all of available copies of the item, then sleep for a week and return to the seller. They should have the item back in stock.

The Meteorologist50
Bring all of Knothole Island’s weather problems under control, or help another Hero to do so. (3) 

For this achievement simply complete all three main quests on Knothole island. Once you've finished one quest, leave the island and return to the main continent of Albion, before coming back to the island. The next stage of the main quest will be available when you return.

The achievement will unlock after you finish the final quest.

The Bibliophile25
Find all the books detailing the history of Knothole Island, or help another Hero to do so. (6) 

For this achievement you need to collect all ten volumes of the Knothole Island books. They are very similar to silver keys and can be found floating above the ground around the island.

Volume I – Given by the guy that brings you to Knothole Island with his submarine, when you first talk to him.

Volume II - Inside the Ice Shrine, you will need to hit four orbs to stop lightning barrier. On the right, you will see icicles that you can destroy, revealing a spot where you can then vault down. Proceed to the ladder, climb it up, destroy some more icicles and the book is yours.

Volume III – Inside the Sun Shrine, in the chamber with the red floor, you need to stand on a blue button to open a door. On the left side of the chamber, as you enter, destroy a broken section of the wall and the book is inside a small alcove.

Volume IV – As soon as you enter the Storm Shrine, to the right in a small alcove.

Volume V – For this one, enter Knothole Island and go to the ramp that takes you to the Ice Shrine. When you get there drop down (Sun or Storm Totem must be activated in order to be able to drop down). Go left and keep following the path. At some point you'll see some trees (usually you get attacked by Hobbes here) turn right and you should see the book next to a cliff.

Volume VI – Below the Warriors Rest House (left of The Box of Secrets) in between the bridge pillars (You need to have the Sun Totem activated).

Volume VII – Next to the west wall of the Sun Shrine entrance.

Volume VIII – As soon as you arrive in town turn left and head to the graveyard, turn left again, and you can see the book in the middle of the trees.

DLC: See the Future
Cost: $6.99 USD Achievements: 13 Points: 250
 
The Nutcracker10
Score 25 groin shots, or see another Hero do so. (13) 

In order to perform a "groin shot," you will need to upgrade your Skill, Dexetrous Styles to Level 4 which awards you with the Sub Targeting skill.

Then, when you see your target, step back and press and hold to lock on, then press the to select the "groin area" (their nuts basically, thus the achievement name) and fire. Repeat 25 times and you'll be awarded this achievement.

The Paramour10
Make love 25 times, or see another Hero do so. (33) 

Simply grab a woman (your wife, someone who looooooves you, not a prostitute) and use the Come Back to My Place expression on them. Once they are following, take them to a bed and select to have relations of the sexual kind. Unprotected/protected ... whatever floats your boat.

For the location of the Come Back to My Place expression, see the Expressionist achievement for the location of the "Come Hither Dear" book.

Reminder - Not a prostitute. It's "love", and not "sex".

The Howler10
Scare five people while dressed as a balverine, or see another Hero do so. (5) 

Simply dress up as a Balverine and gather a crowd of 5 or more people (Bowerstone Market is a good place). This can be tricky if you try to hard and use the expressions. Simply use a spell and this will pop straight away. Try the fire, worked first time here.

The Balverine outfit will be picked up whilst doing the second Murgo quest in the cursed skull.

The Ghastly Jester10
Make five people laugh while dressed as a hobbe, or see another Hero do so. (4) 

Simply dress up as a Hobbe and gather a crowd of 5 or more people (Bowerstone Market is a good place) and then pull an extended sock puppet expression (fun part of the expression wheel) and hit it on green. Other expressions will work, but this is a dead cert.

The Hobbe outfit will be picked up whilst doing the second Murgo quest in the cursed skull.

The Repugnant10
Disgust five people while dressed as a hollow man, or see another Hero do so. (3) 

Simply dress up as a Hollow Man and gather a crowd of 5 or more people (Bowerstone Market is a good place) and then pull an extended middle finger (rude part of the expression wheel) and hit it on green. Other expressions will work, but this is a dead cert.

The Hollow Man outfit will be picked up whilst doing the second Murgo quest in the cursed skull.

The Gladiator30
Score a total high score of 20,000 points or more in the Colosseum, or see another Hero do so. (6) 

This achievement sounds a little harder than it actually is. Remember, Flit Switches multiply your score, and chickens give you a score bonus. You don't lose points for dying but the precious seconds it takes to recover from being knocked down could cost you a thousand points easily.

It shouldn't take more than a a couple tries to get this.

The Multiplicator20
Achieve a multiplier of 10 or more in the Colosseum, or see another Hero do so. (9) 

The multiplier in the Colosseum relies entirely on Flit Switches. As soon as you hear the announcer declare the presence of a flit switch, drop whatever you're doing and find the switch. You need to hit ten of these during the course of one game. Also remember that being knocked down removes a point from your multiplier.

The Combatant20
Defeat the necromancer in the Colosseum, or see another Hero do so. (12) 

The easiest way to do this is to use a Time Control spell in slot 2, and a shock or fire spell in slots 4 and 5. Use time control to slow the clock, then kill many enemies at once with the shock and fire spells.

After defeating Beatles, Bandits, Hobbes, Balverines, Highwaymen, a Banshee, and some Hollow Men, the Necromancer should spawn. The achievement should unlock as soon as he dies.

The Fowl Player10
Dress as a chicken and kick five chickens during the Colosseum battles, or see another Hero do so. (288) 

Dress as chicken by playing the puppet show game on Xbox.com and choosing the middle crown at the end of the game.. Once you've successfully become live poultry, enter the Colosseum and proceed to, well, kick chickens. Every time one spawns. Kick five of your own kind and the achievement is yours. You big meanie!

The Colourist15
Collect the dyes hidden in Murgo's magical items, or see another Hero do so. (78) 

Snow Globe Dyes:
Well Red: It is at the end of the path as you pass the schoolhouse. Available after you free the snowglobe of the curse.

Performers Blue: In the windmill next to the house by the wheat field.

Cursed Grey: In the shadow court in the hallway. As soon as you come to the first room with shadows. Go down the path with the gated entrance, it will be right there. Available after you free the snowglobe of the curse.

Gory Glory Red: After clearing the snowglobe of its curse, inspect the house in the wheat field on the way back to the mission exit. Look at the clock inside to find a flit switch. It will lead you to another flit, which in turn leads to a chest with a note. Go to the house where the note instructs It is The is first house on the left as you enter from the first gated area you open to proceed into the village. You will notice a sign in front of it. From there you will find another note on the table. after picking it up go to the mirror upstairs and activate it with the A button. The dye is on the other side.

Jaunty Jaundice: In the well after you dive under water into the second area. Make your way until you see a side room filled with knights armor. It's on the raised platform to your right. Available after you free the snowglobe of the curse.

Cursed Skull Dyes
Wisp White: Directly across from where you pick up the hollow man costume. It's in the first tomb behind, the door, in a sarcophagus.

Balverine Brown: In the sarcophagus from where you free the first group of wisps.

Nightly Blue: Just before you grab the Hobbes costume turn to the left and look for a space to jump down, it's right there.

Ethical Green: In the treasure chest in the Last Beacon of Hope inside the cursed skull. It is down the path on the way to the swamp area. Just before you reach the water you will see an archway to your right take that path until you reach the gate. Use your Hobbe costume to interact with it. Then use the costume to control the other Hobbe statues to help you with the Flit switch puzzle. After that head to the open area with all the statues of heroes, using the corresponding expression on the statue by the gate to start a fight. Kill the statues and then go through the portal. the dye is on the other side.

The Colosseum
Strawberry Blonde Hair Dye: First you need the Wizardly Bear to get him walk along the side of arena when out of combat and over to a telescope on a dais(stand). Read the inscription then turn around and face the moon. Start firing your gun at the gargoyle statues underneath the moon.One of them will release the bear right into your inventory.

The King Bear is behind a locked door next to two unlit candle holders. Light them up with a fireball to unlock the door and claim the bear.

The Captian Bear is the hardest of the group. You need to score exactly 1985 in Colosseum points to unlock him. The easiest way to do this is to make sure you do not pick up any multiplier flits or kick any chickens. Kill all enemies until you reach the point where only bandits are spawning. Now kill all non-bandits, and save your game.If you happen to mess up you can quit without saving, reload, and start again. Start fighting the bandits and when you manage to get an 85 as your last two digits stop killing them and take a step back.

Now the strategy comes in. The large bandits are worth 30 points each, the medium size ones are 25. Avoid hitting the easiest bandits as they will mess up your score . Now just simply pick off these bandits until you hit the magic number, remembering to kill them in multiples of 100(4x25= 100/30x5+25x2=200). You can also use the multiplier flit now and double all these values, as well as use the chicken kick for a 100 or 200( if using one flit multiplier) point boost. A great tip is to also use your slow time spell so you can take your time and aim carefully. Once you hit 1985 you will see a message come up saying you unlocked the bear. After this you can kill as many other creatures as you like, it will not effect you getting it. After the battle is over pick the bear up on the dais(stand) that was empty before. It is directly across from the one with the telescope on it. Upon picking up the bear you receive your last dye,and the AAA Teddy.
