Introduction:
Welcome to the Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon Road Map to 1000. Dawn of the Dragon is the latest Spyro game; the first to grace the 360. Overall, it's quite an easy 1000 with the only annoying achievement being "Complete the Game".

There are cheats for this game that don't disable achievements. I highly recommend you use them as they will make this game alot easier and quicker to 1000. These codes must be input while in the pause menu, also, you must you the left stick instead of the directional pad.

Infinite Life: +
Infinite Mana: +
Max XP: +
Unlock all Elemental Upgrades: +

Before you begin, you must decide whether you're going to want to play through the game twice. If you don't want to, grab a partner and play through the game in co-op. Refer to the achievement guide for more information.

Step #1 - Playthrough
First things first, play through the game. The story isn't very long and can easily be finished in under 7 hours. Follow THIS guide throughout the entire game as it tells you how to get all of the collectables which are required for "Complete the Game". After defeating Malefor, you will have at least 300.

Step #2 - Clean-up
After completing the game, you will most likely have some achievements that are still locked. Replay the levels and work towards the remaining achievements. Refer to the achievement guide for more information on the achievements you are missing.

Step #3 - Co-op
If you didn't play through the game in co-op, you'll have to play through again with a friend for "Buddy System". The game isn't very long, so this achievement isn't much of a chore. I recommend you play through first on your own, then again with a friend as they will most likely slow you down. Also, the collectibles can become rather frustrating when playing in co-op.

Please note; this can only be done on Local. You cannot play co-op over LIVE or System Link.

Conclusion
That's it. You should have 1000 for Dawn of the Dragon now, if not, refer to the achievement guide for more information.

Bodyguard5
Bring the Artilleryman back to his catapult in less than 5 minutes 
In Dragon City, play through the level until you have to watch a small scene in which the Artilleryman is knocked from his cannon. Once the scene has finished, procede left and you will eventually see the small critter. When you are close to him, he will start following you. Procced back to the cannon with the Artilleryman behind. Enemies will pop out of the ground, you must kill them all as the Artilleryman will not continue to follow you if there are still enemies around.

Orc Demolisher20
Kill 200 Orcs 
Orcs are larger than Grublins, but smaller than Trolls. If you haven't killed 200 by the end of the game, I recommend you replay Burning Land as it seems to house the most Orcs out of all of the levels. Once you have defeated the Orcs, save and quit. Rrepeat until the achievement unlocks.

At the end of Dragon City, you'll have to help close a large door. Firstly, defeat all of the enemies, once they are all defeated, play as Spyro and head towards the right of the screen.

After closing the door once, stay where you. When the door is open slightly, repeat the button prompts.

If you are struggling, input the code for Infinite Life. This way, it is impossible to die and therefore, impossible to miss the achievement.

Trolls are very large and wield a club-like hand. During the game, you will encounter a maximum of eight. After completing the game, replay Burning Lands as you are required to defeat two Trolls to complete the level. If the achievement doesn't unlock at this point, replay the level until it does.

Dark Knight10
