Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Achievements

Open Sesame

Dispel 50 wards.   

Wards can be found throughout the world. They are found as glowing purple objects. You will play a mini-game where a cursor will loop around a ring and you must time hitting the button as the cursor goes over the top of the runes in places. As the runes get more difficult you must time your rune activation to be in flow as some runes offer less time until they deactivate. You'll also have to avoid the red runes or it will fail. Invest a few points into the Dispelling skill to make this a bit easier.

Runed objects can explode if you fail.

adding to what bukman said save your game and have a fatewaver change your fate give all you can to dispelling skill then return and instead of trying to dispel them use auto dispel they count

It's a good thing you can auto-dispel, because this is probably the worst put together puzzle I've ever played.

It's rhythm is completely off and sometimes the A button doesn't work. I'm a drummer and rhythm games are no problem and this thing is about as consistent as dice.

Times where I should hit I miss and vice-versa. I actually got this achievement on a chest I should have lost horribly on, but for some reason it gave it to me even though I completely missed.

I agree with uppy, I really don't understand how it works. I just auto dispel every time.

Every time I see a purple-glowing box, it makes me cringe. Thanks 6-8, I thought I was just awful at it. Now I blame you: mini-game.

I'm going to assume having it blow up in my face and requiring me to pay $1,500 to a healer to remove some asinine curse does NOT count as part of the 50. :)

You actually have a counter which tells you how many you have dispelled.
And the Gnome in Adessa is the easiest place to do this. Probably should be mentioned in the Guide. he would ask you to Dispel 3 chests at a time, which are always Very Easy, and you get paid for it...

#6 I completely agree. To drummers like you and I most rhythm puzzles are more fun than challenging but this is just rediculas.

#10 is incorrect. They get more difficult as you go. I was at somewhere around 20 dispelled chest when I started to grind the gnome repeatable and they start scaling about ever 5 repeats.
