Overlord II Achievements

Ultimate Collector

30
You've collected 100% of all Dark Crystals

There are 30 Dark Crystals scattered throughout the game. Note: this is not enough to forge every item and upgrade all minions, take this into account if going for those achievements, however you should have enough to unlock all the achievements if being careful with what you buy, even if not using multiple saves.

Maps and images of the locations can be found here:


Netherword Tower (5)

These should all be easy enough to find and are all in plain sight:

  • [1] The main chamber, on the platform around the edge of the chamber
  • [2] In your bedchambers, right at the back of the chamber.
  • [3] In the forge near the bellows (on the left past your armoury, where you upgrade your minions)
  • [4] In the Minion burrows chamber, there is one at the end of a dead end bridge past the red minion hive/area and
  • [5] another on a path just around from the blue minions.

Nordberg Sanctuary (1)


  • [6] Just after you slide down a hill and have to leave your brown minions behind, this crustal is in among the roots to the left beside the Gnome Burrows.

Nordberg (2)


  • [7] After you use the mine cart to destroy the gate and clear the Empire soldiers with the ballista, this Crystal is just inside the gate to your left behind some rocks, get another mine cart and send it into the town as you did with the gate then destroy it to gain access.
  • [8] After you have dealt with Barius and conquered Nordberg, return via Netherworld Gate 2. Head left past the Mayor House and the Balista and left again to head out the northern gate, follow the winding round around to the left (it goes around the back of the Mayor's house) and this Crystal will be at the end.

Everlight Reef (2)


  • [9] Just after you pick up the first red stone this Crystal is in the water to your right as you move along the path, just after destroying a hut blocking the road. You'll have to return here with Blue minions to pick this up later in the game.
  • [10] After placing the yellow stone you'll come to a sandy area filled with mermaids, to get there you have to head down two flights of stairs, after the first set of stairs turn right and the Crystal is on a ledge/verge only your minions can reach.

Everlight Jungle (1)


  • [11] After defeating the two fat elves in the Northern Area of the map (the part you needed the green minions to enter) head through the newly opened passageway and take the first right. The crystal is in this section in one of the rocky alcoves.

Everlight Facility (3)


  • [12]After you possess the Green minions and enter the facility you will soon come across the Green Minion Hive, just beside it is a 5 minion switch, sweep them over it to open up a small area filled with crates, a couple of treasure chests and the Crystal.
  • [13]This is one of the most easily missed. Far over in the north eastern part of the map (best gotten when you release the first Panda using the 5 minion switch during the quest to retrieve the green minion hive) this crystal is found by entering a grate hidden in shadow at the back of the panda cage, then after destroying the pots in the next area long thin beam. Only accessible when you have possessed minions.
  • [14] At the Northern part of the Map, in one of the pens that you release the two Pandas from, again best done during the Green Minion Hive Quest.

Everlight Temple Outskirts (1)


  • [15]You'll see this crystal high on a ledge just as you exit the area's Netherworld Gate however you cannot reach it until you have the spider mounts for your greens. You'll return here with them after defeating the spider boss, indeed you need spider mounts to open the main gate to the next area by pushing minion switches on the walls only they can reach, so remember to pick it up then.

Everlight Temple (1)


  • [16] After defeating the Spider boss and ascending the lift using your greens take the first set of stairs to your right, just before you reach the Netherworld gate to reach a 1-minion switch, Activate it to open a secret area. Head up the stairs to the left of the gate then turn right, picking up a mana upgrade on your way if you haven't already, to enter the room with gold chests and this crystal.

Everlight Town (1)

  • [17] You need the Blue minions for this crystal, so return only when you have them. From Netherworld Gate 1 (The one in the area that had the Boss fight and contains the Governess and Treasure Chests) head out and take the left hand path, this will bring you to the Beech. Keep left and cross the water to the the island, this will hold a spell catalyst if you haven't already picked it up. There is a minion accessible area on the southern part of the Island with this Dark Crystal, hit to send your minions down the path to retrieve it for you.

Empire Harbour (1)


  • [18] After disguising your minions to enter the fort with the catapult, turn directly left, this Stone is in the corner however, unlike almost every other, it does not shine through the waterjug it's inside. One of the easier ones to miss if you don't destroy every breakable in each area.

Empire Heartlands (1)


  • [19] In this area you will have to possess a minion and destroy various Sentinel towers, one one point you'll be faced with two towers too high to reach and a Gargantuan prowling around. Use the Gargantuan's charge to fell the sentinels then kill it (attack when it's stunned from a Charge) and it will drop a Dark Crystal. This is another easily missed as it's possible to just avoid the Gargantuan after he destroys the towers.

Empire Sewers (2)


  • [20] Under the grating beside the raft you used to reach the Netherworld gate, just your blues (Select the raft with and send them to it with ) and use them to activate the raft (hit ) and to another dock (hit ) and return to the, now accessible, grating. Send in your blues to retrieve the Crystal.
  • [21] After your fight in the Arena return with 20 minions (any will do) to the room with the 6-minion wheel. (It's the second puzzle room on the northern part of the map). Partially Hidden by boxes on the left hand size is a 20-minion switch. Activate it and follow the path, killing the Executioners in your way, to find the Dark Crystal.

Wasteland (5)


  • [22] You can get this Crystal as soon as the Wastelands become available. Take the path around from the Netherworld gate and as soon as you enter the main area head left hugging the wall. The crystal is in an alcove here, just above the Netherworld gate on the map.
  • [23] You'll need blue minions to advance this deep into the Wasteland, and for all other Crystals in this region. From the first netherworld gate follow the path and pass through the area blocked by two magic goop piles, you'll comp across a human survivor village with a few minion burrows. Activate the minion-wheel and continue on to the next village. Here the Crystal is hidden behind one of the houses on the upper level, destroy them to access it. This is in the north-eastern part of the Map.
  • [24] After the large rotating stone platform, and just past Netherworld Gate 2, is a Zombie village made of halfling holes. The final command upgrade is behind a breakable barrier which blocks the exit to the north side. Almost impossible to miss within the story progression.The Dark Crystal is underneath a tent right beside this.
  • [25] After taking with Queen Fay and Florian you will gain access to a large lake filled with the magic blue goop. This Crystal is in the northernmost part of it in a thin ring near some green poison jets.
  • [26] At the end of the wastelands region you will have to escape from a horde of Empire soldiers along a set path. After a section where you are under fire from archers whilst running up various levels of a cliff this Crystal is in an alcove just before you come to a large slide taking you down to a level near where you met Fay and Florian earlier. It can be difficult to find and get the first time around due to the Archers attacking you, but you can return later if needs be.

Wasteland Sanctuary Depths (1)


  • [27] After defeating the Salamander King and Charging the Tower heart at all four Crystals this Dark Crystal will be right in your path on the way out just after you have to fight some empire soldiers in a large circular room (you earlier fell down here and had your first encounter with the Salamanders). Almost impossible to miss.

Wasteland Sanctuary Town (1) (Missable)


  • [28]When you return to the town after charging the Tower Heart it'll be under attack by the empire troops. Continue until you come to a section where you must push two mother Goddess statues forward to pass, head up the stairs here to a crossroads. Straight ahead is blocked and to the left is a Empire Centurion, take the right path up to a raised platform and destroy everything to get the Crystal. (it is in a barrel with no normal glow, easy to miss). Warning: You cannot return to the Wasteland Sanctuary Town Area later on, you must get this Crystal the one and only time you are here.

Empire Hills (1)


  • [29] You need Kelda as your first Mistress to have the wolf mounts available for this Crystal. After the second catapult battle (where you destroyed 3 siege towers) you'll come to an area with 6 bombers, use them to break the barriers and have your minions deal with them. This crystal is across the gap (where three of the bombers were) and requires wolves to jump across and collect.

Empire City (1)


  • [30] Just before you enter the Emperor's Palace (after destroying the last shrine with the zombies/townspeople around) take the stairs to the left of the door into the palace. This Crystal is in an unmarked jar on the ledge at the top.
