x360a would like to thank Method for this Road Map
|Chapter One Complete||10|
|Find the Field Guide.|
Simply go through the mansion exploring, make sure to find the broom stick up in the attic then head to the kitchen where there is a breakable wall to smash beside the fridge, that opens up the path to secret study of Arthur Spiderwick, where you will find a key on his desk. Use this to open up the chest beside the telescope up in the attic, to find the field guide.
|Chapter Two Complete||10|
|Obtain the Monocle.|
To obtain the monocle you first must take control of Simon for the first time. You get to control him after you rescue his cat, Tibbs, from the roof of the garage. After you have Simon, head up to the attic where the telescope is and grab that (where you got the field guide), then head into Arthur Spiderwick's secret study and grab the glasses on a desk. Go over to the workbench to make the monocle. After your done making them head back down the stairs until you run into Jared and take back control of him, after you do that head back upstairs and grab the monocle off the workbench.
|Chapter Three Complete||10|
|Burn the Field Guide.|
To "burn the field guide" you must first make it all the way back to the mansion with Jared and Simon. You will have to fight off the Goblins and Captain Redcap using Mallory. Once your done with that you will have to go around searching for the pieces to make the gun for Simon. Most are inside the house and in plain view, with just a couple being on the outside of the mansion. After making the gun you must find a fire salamander, (right at the back corner of the garage) and take him to the fire pit around the back of the house to get the cut-scene and the achievement.
|Chapter Four Complete||10|
|Find Aunt Lucinda.|
To get this all you have to do is make your way through the cellar and the tunnels. There is just one tricky part and that is to open the path to the tunnels. In order to open it you must read the note to get the clue and use the following sprites in order. 1. Royal Orchid Sprite (toadstool)2. Will O' The Wisp Sprite (diversion)3. Flower-Head Sprite (whirlwind).
After making your way through the tunnels you will know you are about at the end the chapter, once you’re on your second chase scene.
|Chapter Five Complete||10|
|Tame the Griffin.|
The main quest for this is to find the griffin feather and to feed the griffin 5 fire salamanders. You should have Simon (who you need to douse the salamanders to be able to pick them up) before getting to the griffin, so just make sure to have 5 salamanders collected before you go up to him. To get to him you must go through the cypress tree folk (teleporter) which is in the deep woods.
|Chapter Six Complete||10|
|Return to the Mansion.|
After dealing with the griffin quest you have to head back to the house, through the tunnels and get back to the cellar to make it back to the mansion, since the other way is blocked.
|Chapter Seven Complete||10|
As soon as you come out of the cellar a cut-scene will take place. First you must defend the house from the invading goblins until your mother gets the tomato sauce ready. Once she is done another cut-scene will take place and Mulgarath will begin to chase you. You must make it into the kitchen and smash through the rubble blocking the dumbwaiter. Then you must make it up the dumbwaiter by following the command prompts on screen you will make it into the secret study. Once you are up there you have to make it over to Thimbletack by hopping over a bookcase, after that you will be on the roof. With Mulgarath still chasing, jump over to the next ledge and start up the roof by following the command prompts. Zigzag around some obstacles and get to the ladder. Climb up to the top to get the cut-scene and unlock the achievement.
|Chapter Eight Complete||80|
|Complete the Field Guide.|
Completing the story, collecting and recording every sprite, and doing all side quests will unlock the final quest called "A Visitor". You have to go to the front door of the mansion, everything collectable is mapped out in this guide and any random items needed are listed at the bottom.

|Collect 25 Gobstones.|
See Gobstone Fanatic.
|Collect 50 Gobstones.|
See Gobstone Fanatic.
|Collect 100 Gobstones.|
Collect these stones as you are running around mansion, yard and the surrounding forest. They can be on or off the path. When searching for them, hug the invisible wall of the road to search the bushes as you run by. Completing the Knocker Quest will give approximately 50 additional Gobstones, so use those towards the 100.
Gobstones are used as ammunition for Jared's slingshot or an exploding variety can be thrown by Simon.
|Ball Bearings Enthusiast||10|

See Ball Bearings Fanatic.
|Ball Bearings Collector||10|
|Collect 50 Ball Bearings.|
See Ball Bearings Fanatic.
|Ball Bearings Fanatic||30|
|Collect 100 Ball Bearings.|
Using the same tactic as the Gobstones, search the edges of paths after traveling through areas, sometimes they may be additional BBs hiding in the bushes. Upon completion of the game (Chapter 7 for our purposes) I only had around 85. Shoot or hit the washing machine in the cellar for an additional 15 or so.
Ball Bearings are used as Jared's ammunition for his slingshot.
|Faerie Fruit Enthusiast||10|
|Collect 10 Faerie Fruit.|
See Faerie Fruit Fanatic.
|Faerie Fruit Collector||20|
|Collect 20 Faerie Fruit.|
See Faerie Fruit Fanatic.
|Faerie Fruit Fanatic||50|
|Collect 40 Faerie Fruit.||(1)|
Mostly found on the ground, these can also be obtained by catching sprites. When the sprites return to the garden, talk to each of them and they will give up an extra fruit or two as a reward.
Faerie Fruits are used as lures to attract sprites that may be flying too high or out of reach. They may be picked back up after use.
|Collect 100 Goblin Teeth.|
See Goblin Master.
|Collect 250 Goblin Teeth.|
See Goblin Master.
|Collect 500 Goblin Teeth.|
This is actually easier than it sounds. Each goblin killed yields teeth, provided you don't knock them off an edge. Green goblins drop 1 tooth on death, the red ones drop 2 and the large purple bull goblins drop 3. Obtain 500 and the achievement will unlock. You can check your progress in the start menu.
|Fire Salamander Collector||30|
|Collect 10 Fire Salamanders.|
Simon's gun is needed to douse the salamanders in order to collect them. The easiest place to find these are behind the garage (1), and in front of both entrances to the Deep Woods (2-3). There are also (3) by the first knocker in the lower camp/quarry area. Leaving the area and returning causes them to respawn. Collect 10 total, you don't need to have them all at once.
One is needed to start the fire in Chapter three, and to complete the entry in the field guide.
|Record all Leatherwing Sprites.|
There are 10 of these total to collect, and are found around all regions of the game. Exploration and simple questing will help you find them all. The most difficult one to find is obtained by shattering all lamps hanging from the large tree in the quarry with a slingshot. The sprite will fly down to the area where the Griffon's feather landed so you can collect it. Every two found will add another leaf to your health bar. They are a primary green color.
|Royal Orchid Collector||10|
|Record all Royal Orchid Sprites.|
Royal Orchid Sprites glow red. You will know which ones you haven't found before by the larger aura surrounding them. Net them and paint them to collect them. You may check your progress on every sprite in the Field Guide. The last Royal Orchid Sprite to find (and the one needed for the garden) is located on a path in the swamp area of Deep Woods, just before the cave that shortcuts back to Forest Road. Use a faerie fruit if the sprite is flying too high and it will come down for an easy capture. Use an ability granted by the Royal Orchid Sprite to summon a Toadstool ring around a goblin, which is another achievement.
1. Flying around in the front of the mansion on the lawn.
|Flower-Winged Sprite Collector||10|
|Collect all Flower-Winged Sprites.|
Flower-winged sprites emit a light blue glow, and reward you with a dash charge upon capture. Only 5 of these to find, and the last one can be found in the Caves beneath the cellar.
1. Outside of mansion, flying around the front by a tree with a birdhouses hanging from it (close to tree on mound).
|Record all Flower-Head Sprites.|
There are 7 of these to find, and they glow a light orange. The most difficult sprites to find are the final ones needed for the garden. This one is located in the same location as the final Royal Orchid Sprite. I simply walked through the cave back to Forest Road, and returned, and it had appeared in the same spot as the Royal Orchid.
1. Outside of mansion by tree, on little mound, on the lawn near driveway.
|Will O' The Wisp Collector||10|
|Record all Will O' The Wisps.|
There are 10 Will O' The Wisps, they are fairly easy to spot. They are larger, spherical shaped and they move very slowly. Upon capture, they give a 'distraction' bluff, which allows you to distract goblins (used for two other achievements).
1. Flying around near the garage on the outside of the mansion.
|Record all Bellflower Sprites.|
There are 5 Bellflower sprites to collect across the world. They are yellow in appearance and glow a deep purple color.
1. Flying around the gazebo on the outside of the mansion.
|Stray Sod Collector||10|
|Record all Stray Sod.|
There are 8 stray sods to collect, and can be easily found by the dark bush that they are guarding. These sprites look like tiny walking trees, and can be caught by running circles around them. Aside from the Sprout Sprites, they are the only ones on the ground. Look for 3 of them in the Forest Road meadow, and 4 more in the Deep Woods guarding the cypress portal tree. The final sod is in the same area of the Deep Woods, guarding the sole Beetle Mimic Sprite.
|Record all Sprout Sprites.|
Sprout Sprites are a light green in color and jump around on the ground. Explore grassy areas and you will find them.
|Beetle Mimic Collector||10|
|Record all Beetle Mimic Sprites.||(1)|
There is only one to find, it is in the Deep Woods maze area. On the far back wall, there is a Stray Sod guarding a little patch of grass. Daze the Stray Sod by running around it and the area should open. The Beetle Mimic Sprite will summon a clone of your character to fight you. Kill your clone (It's more powerful than the goblins you are used to) to capture this purple sprite.
|Pond Skater Collector||10|
|Record all Pond Skater Sprites.|
There are 3 Pond Skater Sprites, and they are always found over a body of water. These sprites are blue and move very fast. I suggest using a faerie fruit to draw them to land for a quick capture. Their locations are in order: 1. Over pond in Forest Road.2. The 2nd area of Deep Woods with the tree portal.3. The puddle of water in the quarry where the Griffon's feather lands.
|Fire Salamander Master||10|
|Complete the Fire Salamander page in the Field Guide.|
After collecting your first salamander, a quest will appear for Simon to collect another for the terrarium. Only Simon can collect Fire Salamanders by spraying them first with his gun. Place the salamanders in the tank at the foot of the bed to unlock this achievement.
|Complete the Cockatrice page of the Field Guide.|
Find all pieces of the evidence of a Cockatrice. There are 5 in total. You can check your progress in the Field guide.
1. Cockatrice Feather. ( Please see location of Stray Sod Sprite 2.) Capturing him will open up the path behind him so go down this dead end dirt path. It is at the end.
|Complete the Griffin page in the Field Guide.|
After the cut-scene where the Griffin lands, collect the feather. Then feed it five salamanders to unlock this achievement.
|Complete the Redcap page in the Field Guide.|
Redcap is a goblin leader beneath Mulgarath. You will fight him twice throughout the game, both with Mallory. After the second encounter, you fulfill the obligations for this page.
|River Troll Master||10|
|Complete River Troll page in the Field Guide.|
The first time you fight the River Troll you will have to feed him 10 Goblins to make him full. Get close to the River Troll until he picks you up, then shake the . If a goblin is near when you escape, the troll will eat him. Goblins will repeatedly run into this area, so just repeat 10 times until you defeat him. After this, obtain Simon's plastic baggie tomato bombs. Throw one at the troll to stun him, then use your squirt gun to push him to the back of the pond towards the light patch. The River Troll will turn to stone and the achievement will unlock.
|Talk to both Knockers.|
There are two knockers in the game, and you must talk to them both with Simon. The first one is in the lower quarry at the far end of the goblin camp. Enter the cave and douse the fire Salamanders. Knocker #1 will slide down the pipe and tell you to seek out #2. Knocker #2 is located at the end of the caves. You can either run here from the cellar, or use the Oak tree portal in the Deep woods. Near the portal in the caves, look for a purple crystal hanging from the ceiling. Hit it with one of Simon's exploding gobstones to draw out the Knocker. As a reward, the knocker will give you a large amount of gobstones (50+) towards your gobstone achievement.
|Complete Garden Sprites quest.|
There are four sprites that are lost in the world and you must find them and invite them back to the garden at the mansion. These sprites count towards your tally for the other varieties, so this achievement usually comes last. The sprites only appear after your mansion has been secured by the end of Chapter 7. The four sprites are: Leatherwing, Flower-winged, Flower-head, and Royal Orchid. The locations for these four are contained within their respective categories above. Make sure after collecting them to use their powers, otherwise they will not appear in the garden. Once collected, talk to each to earn the achievement. It seems capturing one will cause another of the four to spawn, which is the cause for some confusion.
|Trap a Goblin inside a Toadstool Ring.|
Using the power granted by the Royal Orchid Sprite, cast a toadstool ring using the button near a Goblin. The Goblin I 'trapped' was simply touching it, not necessarily trapped inside. There is no way to aim the ring, just cast it and make sure a goblin is very close to you.
|Send a Goblin over a cliff with a Distract Sprite.|
Capture a Will O' the Wisp, and hold onto the power granted to you, which is distraction. The caves is by far the easiest place to attempt the achievement. Cycle through your powers (you have 3 at a time) using the button. Cast distraction near a goblin, and he should walk right off the ledge.
|Send a Goblin into a Fire Salamander with a Distract Sprite.|
Once again, use the ability granted by the Will O' The Wisp. The easiest place to do this is in Forest Road near the Deep Woods entrance, or on the backside of the garage at the mansion. Get near a Salamander, but not close to pop it. Cast distract and the goblin will wander into it. Don't worry if you get hit, they don't deal much damage.
|Tour of Arenas||20|
|Complete a multiplayer match in every ISL Arena.|
Progress through the story to unlock different levels of the ISL arena. I did these achievements last. You only need one controller to do this. Set it to a low score mark, and load up and finish each of the four levels. The four levels are: Front yard (day), Front yard (night), Meadow, and Caves.
|Finish an ISL match in which each player scores 50+ points.|
Can be done with a friend, or two controllers. Load up any level, Sprites only. Set the game limit to 5 minutes, and get 50 points with each player.
|Score 100 points in a "Sprites and Goblins" ISL Arena match without taking damage.||(2)|
The Front yard is by far the easiest level to do this on, as you can hide behind the toadstool ring. Use Simon and power up his attack using . Wait till the goblins get close, and fire. Green ones take 1-2 hits to kill, and red ones 2-3. Green Goblins give 1 point, Red ones 2, and Bull Goblins 5. You can get to around 80 points without any problem. At around 80, Bull Goblins will arrive, they have a charge and a missile attack. You can no longer hide behind the ring so charge out and kill them as fast as possible without getting hit. Capturing a Bellflower sprite at the onset of the match for the extra damage boost can really help at this stage. Get to 100 without getting hit and the achievement is yours (may take a few tries).
|Fully decorate Thimbletack's house.|
There are 13 items to obtain for his house; they are:
|Obtain Hobgoblin spit for Simon.|
The Hobgoblin wants Simon to kill some Bull Goblins in the Deep Woods near the Cypress Tree Portal. Kill them all, and check your field guide to make sure you got them all. Return to the Hobgoblin and he will spit in your eye so you can see Goblins without wearing the Monocle. The Hobgoblin is sitting in the tree with the orange leaves in front of the mansion.
|Obtain Hobgoblin spit for Mallory.|
This is more simple than Simon's Task. The Hobgoblin wants some birdseed. You can find a bag of it in the cellar on the back shelves.
I never realized I was that long winded, but I tried to be as descriptive as I could. Many of the achievements for collecting or using characters are easiest done after Chapter 7 is complete, so you can switch easily between characters. I left out the locations for the sprites for two reasons: #1 - Would dramatically increase the length of the guide. #2 Many of the sprites, except for the ones needed for garden quest, are easily found. Please leave comments or questions. Thanks for reading!
