Entirely voiced in English and Japanese 50+ hours of gameplay!

Note on Difficulty Achievements:
There are achievements tied to playing the game on the harder difficulty settings. These do stack, and you must set the difficulty when choosing to start a new game, and ensure you do not edit the "Nightmare" setting or the "10" on the slider to get them all at once. Everything else on that screen can be tweaked. I would suggest turning on the ability to save anywhere especially.

Note on Unobtainable Achievements:
At release, the achievement Treasure Hunter III (60G) does not unlock despite meeting the requirements. It is also believed that Weakness Finder (10G) does not work, though the requirements are vague so it's possible we just don't understand what is required - however no one has unlocked it yet.

Note on Glitchy Collectibles:
The achievement Crystal Fruits IV (60G) can possibly become unobtainable due to the game's VERY glitchy spawns and tracking of the collectibles. At any time, most notably in Chapters 1 and 2 (possibly only in these chapters), the collectibles can simply fail to spawn when the map area loads for the first time. Unfortunately, the only solution to this would be to load a save prior to loading the map area for the first time - as soon as you set foot into the new areas, the fruits will either spawn or not, and reloading the map or fast traveling and coming back does not force them to spawn if they did not initially. You will need to check for all the spawns immediately upon entering the area and reload if any failed.

There is also a second glitch to this, and that is sometimes upon collecting a Crystal Fruit, it will not be added to you inventory. So even if you do get lucky and all 100 spawn, you could end up losing a few without realizing, and since the achievements unlock when you turn in the fruits, you'd be locked out of the final achievement for 100 fruits. Because of this, it is highly recommended to save prior to interacting with each collectible, verify it showed up in your inventory properly, then save again after. Repeat this for every single one, and be sure to keep a separate save prior to starting each chapter just in case one of them failed to spawn in the first place.

Step 1: 100% Run on Nightmare
You should only need one run through the game if you don't run into any issues with the collectibles spawning. Be sure to start on Nightmare difficulty and do not change the difficulty name or number slider (leave at 10). I'm not sure why there are two spots for the difficulty in the settings, but both need to be set properly. As you play through the story, be sure to collect every Crystal Fruit, complete every side-quest for the extra experience and associated achievements (espcially the two missable quests listed in the Overview section), and use every element on enemies as you go (though this can be cleaned up later).

Once you complete the story, you can lower the difficulty and return to any area in the game to clean everything up that you may not have done (likely the weakness achievement and maybe some fruit collectibles).

Step 2: Easy Run - Mop Up
If for any reason your collectibles glitched or you missed the quests in Chapter 6, you can start a new game on Easy and run through a second time to knock those out now.

Conclusion:
This game came a long way since its Kickstarter in 2015, but even so it launched with some issues. It also has some of the worst character designs I've seen in a long time, but the environments are nice, the combat system is fantastic and the story is decent. Overall, it's an impressive game considering the size of the studio. Hopefully a few patches come in down the line to fix some of the performance issues and gameplay/achievement setbacks, but otherwise it's a great game for a pretty good price - plus it launched onto Xbox Game Pass, so it's a no brainer to at least give it a try.

    See Legendary Beasts II (30G) for more info.
  • Find the first 10 Crystal Fruits

    See Crystal Fruits IV (60G) for more info.
  • Meet the last Uralik

    The Last Uralik is a side-quest found in Herelsor City. Once accepted, you will get a number of quest markers pop up on your map. You can check with all of them, but one specific person will request 500 Heyr for the location. Once you pay him, teleport to Crelk Forest - Center to find the enemy. It is Level 11 and weak to Ice. Defeat it and return to the quest giver to unlock the achievement.
  • Drive an ancient Orokko mad

  • Complete the first chapter

    Story related and can not be missed.
  • Defeat the corroded Morom

    Story related and can not be missed.
  • Get a Nekaroo

    Story related and can not be missed.

    Note: You will earn a Nekaroo early in the story during the "Purple Whiskers" side-quest, but this Nekaroo leaves you as part of the story and it is not until you earn your permanent ride in Chapter 2 that the achievement unlocks.
  • The gears have been set into motion…

    Story related and can not be missed.
  • Complete the second chapter

    Story related and can not be missed.
  • Complete 20 world events

    World Events are mini-quests that can show up on the world map, usually at one of the game's shrine locations. These will show a purple diamond on your mini-map/HUD and usually only take a minute or two to complete. Generally you'll just be finding a lost item, killing a weak enemy, or could be as simple as donating some money to a storyteller. Do these whenever they pop up to complete this achievement as you explore, then ignore them forever - the rewards are terrible and they will tend to be a waste of time.
  • Try to find the enemy’s weakness 40 times.

    *UNOBTAINABLE*
     
    The way this achievement is believed to work is that you need to hit an enemy with all 8 elements - thunder, wind, earth, holy, water, fire, dark, and ice - to fill in their entire weakness board. Dark and Holy elemental attacks are hard to come by, though Selene will get spells for these later in the game (Gravity Pull for dark and Falling Stars for holy), and you can craft "shard" consumables to use in battle that do this type of damage as well. It's possible that after doing all attacks you'll also need to scan the enemy in battle by pressing dpad-up.png on your turn to access the status screen of everyone in the fight. Use rb.png/lb.png to cycle through your party members and the enemies. Once you have scanned 40 different enemies, the achievement should unlock. However, it is currently glitched and does not progress.
  • Find 50 Crystal Fruits

    See Crystal Fruits IV (60G) for more info.
  • Solve 4 puzzles

    Puzzles in this game are the large tower-like sctructures in the world. Interacting with the pedastal in these locations will start the puzzle, and you have a limited amount of time to complete them. You will have two characters that you need to move in specific ways to complete the puzzle and access the treasures at the end. Later puzzles will have electrified spaces that you can only use once or your character will die upon stepping on the hex a second time. See this page for links to solutions to all the puzzles in Crelk Forest, Herelsor Plains, and Solna Plains.

    Story related and can not be missed.
  • A Mother’s Legacy

    This achievement is unlocked by completing the "Sunken Cathedral" side-quest in Chapter 3. Accept it from Atalanta on the pier just outside the Fishing Village. You will need to follow a few quest markers to obtain a flower, kill one of the flower-type enemies with fire to obtain its heart, speak to a man on the other side of the beach, then answer three questions (you can inspect the headstones to get the answers if you want, but they are: A Link, All Things Lost, Keeper) and finally return to Atalanta once more with the bracelet to finish the quest and unlock the achievement.
  • Dedicated your time to entertain an old man

    This achievement is unlocked by completing the "No Country for Old Masters" side-quest in Chapter 3. Accept it from Petrus at the Fishing Village, then follow the marked locations to complete three easy fights. A final fight will take place where you can defeat Petrus himself (in one attack) and the quest will end and unlock the achievement.

    15

    Defeat the hologram

    Story related and can not be missed.
  • Find an adoptive family for Griff

    This achievement is unlocked by completing a series of two side quests. First, complete "Biting the Hand" which is found in Tyr-Caelum by speaking with Frey. You will need to exit the city and get on your Nekaroo, then follow the quest markers to find Griff in the Jungle. Defeat a monster and return to the city to complete this quest. Then you can immediately accept and complete "Bare Necessities" which is also given by Frey. Simply head to the other side of town to speak to two NPCs, then return to Griff and choose who you take him to, the Orphanage or the Apprentice. This completes the quest and pops the achievement.
  • Hunt the second tier of legendary beasts

    To access the hunts for the Legendary Beasts, you must first complete a number of hunts for smaller, regular enemies first on the Hunting Boards. Make sure you obtain the quest from the Hunting Board before killing the Legendary enemies for it to count toward the achievement, as they will already be out roaming the world at any time even if you don't have the quest to kill them. However, they do respawn so it's not a big deal if you kill them before getting the quest, just do so again after obtaining it.

    Tier 1 enemies can be obtained in Herelsor Plains and you need to kill the Ur-Dunnrir, Big Orokko, and Queen Croctas. Tier 2 enemies can be obtained in Heretic's Trail/Tyr-Caelum and you need to kill the Patriarch Red Widow and Hellmaw Nepentha. More info on the spawn locations of these enemies can be found HERE.
  • Find 75 Crystal Fruits

    See Crystal Fruits IV (60G) for more info.
  • Find 100 Crystal Fruits

    There are 100 total Crystal Fruit collectibles to find in the game. Use this guide to find all of them. Bear in mind, the game was Early Access on PC, and some fruits were added later in the game, but in the Xbox version they all should be available from the start. So when you are exploring in Chapter 1 for instance, be sure to also reference the map for Chapter 7.1 - you should have 26 total fruits in that area. Likewise, Chapter 2 and Chapter 7.2 should combine for 20 fruits, and so on. Once you have all 100 fruits and have returned them to the quest-give at the Herelsor Inn, the corresponding achievements will unlock. You will get a reward for every ten fruits returned on top of the achievements, so be sure to warp back to get some good equipment from him from time to time.

    Glitch Warning: The Xbox version of the game has some issues with these collectibles spawning properly. A few times I would come to a location and the pod would be on the ground, but the actual fruit would be missing, and I could not collect it. Reloading an old save could help this if it's far enough back, but there were multiple that I could not get to spawn and I was locked out of this final achievement on my first playthrough. Basically, when the map loads for the first time, all the fruits should spawn but if they didn't, there is no way to force the spawn even if you fast travel away and come back. I have also seen reports of the fruit not showing up in your inventory after collecting it, though this never happened to me personally. See the Road Map for more info on these issues and how to try and avoid these issues.

  • Collect 140 treasure chests

    *UNOBTAINABLE*
     
    There are many hundreds of chests available in the game, but unfortunately this achievement does not unlock despite collecting well more than the required amount.
  • Complete the Chapter V

    Story related and can not be missed.
  • Find Fallon in the Vanguard

    Story related and can not be missed.
  • One blurry case of self-defense

    This achievement is tied to completing a side-quest called "Quiet Dominance" in Elysian Fields. Shortly after entering the fields, you will find Derek and Gavin once again. They will run off and a large orange search area will be added to your map. You'll find them pretty much right in the middle of the area next to a tall purple glowy tree. Next, hop on your Nekaroo and head to the right of where the Elysian Fields is labeled on your map. Defeat the two men here to claim the treasure and the achievement.
  • Master and pupil, only humans after all

    This achievement can be a little cumbersome. You will start thi quest "Unbeknownst Masters" in Elysian Fields, on your way toward the Vanguard high up on a hill from the Nameless Swordsman. To make progress in the first quest, you MUST be following it as your active quest or the challenges will not offer the proper reward. When following the quest, sometimes your battle objectives (the ones such as win a battle without healing, without dying, without a certain character taking damage, etc) will reward Tokens of Prowess instead of regular items or money. Not every objective will change, so just flee from battles if the tokens aren't available or the objective seems too difficult (such as killing two enemies with one attack if you're on Nightmare difficulty which I found annoying). You can return to Inel Harbor area for very quick and easy fights.

    Once you have collected all ten tokens, return to the Nameless Swordsman and receive the second part of the quest. In this part, head to the marked location to defeat a Honey Pot mini-boss, but unfortunately this is a solo fight with Daryon. The slime enemies are very resistance to physical attacks, so use Defense Breaker with Daryon if you have it, and be sure to have the Bold Opening attack which can hit every enemy on the same hex. The Honey Pot will continually spawn smaller enemies, so killing those to keep their damage output low is important. I'd also suggest bringing Ambrosia items which will double Daryon's HP for 10 turns, allowing you to tank some of those hits from the smaller enemies when necessary. Fire Bombs can also be a nice item to get off some extra DPS and kill the adds as well. This is a tough fight on Nightmare, but doable with the setup above.

    Return to the Nameless Swordsman once more for the final part of the quest, which is yet another solo battle with Daryon against the Swordsman himself. This battle is much easier though, especially if you have a high Speed stat and the Shadow Step attack. You can use Defense Breaker first if you want, but it should be necessary. Use Shadow Step for a critical hit and to position yourself behind him. With your high speed, you should get off at least two more turns for two backstab critical hits. After he attacks, repeat that process to keep dishing out the damage and he'll go down in no time. After the battle, you've finished surpassed the master and will unlock this achievement.
  • Investigate several cases of the missing corpses

    This achievement takes place in Chapter 5. You will find the quest-giver Juli at the entrance of Elysian Fields. From there, you can follow this guide to complete the quest and unlock the achievement. The descriptions and pictures there are a little vague, but should do the trick. The graves are essentially found in the following locations:
    • Teleport to Olphara Pass - Entrance and head just south
    • Teleport to Herelsor Hill - Inn and head south on the outskirt of the town
    • Teleport to Kaladaan Coast - Exit and head north to the second gravestone
    You need to return to Juli after each gravestone and the achievement will unlock after the third trip.
  • Completed Chapter VI

    Story related and can not be missed.
  • Faced countless enemies, and the many aches of both responsibility and self-deprecation

    Story related and can not be missed.
  • Decided a proper menu for your guests

    *MISSABLE*
     
    During the Chapter 6 main quest "Herald of the Gods" you will eventually be in control of only Ysoris and Selene in Tyr-Caelum. After going to the Junkyard to get something and returning to the Chief Mechanic at the front of the city, the objective will change to "Make further preparations..." and new exclamation points will show up on your HUD. You must do the side-quests at this time before moving the main quest again or you will miss their respective achievements.
     
    For this quest, speak to the Chief Engineer and choose any of the available options to unlock the achievement. This choice is to select a defense system for the upcoming attack, and you can change your choice at any time so the exclamation point will not go away.
  • Apologized... somehow

    *MISSABLE*
     
    During the Chapter 6 main quest "Herald of the Gods" you will eventually be in control of only Ysoris and Selene in Tyr-Caelum. After going to the Junkyard to get something and returning to the Chief Mechanic at the front of the city, the objective will change to "Make further preparations..." and new exclamation points will show up on your HUD. You must do the side-quests at this time before moving the main quest again or you will miss their respective achievements.
     
    For this quest, speak to the Merchant and be sure to choose the left option to apologize or the achievement will not unlock, and she won't speak to you on the topic again for a second chance.
  • Complete the game with the battle difficulty set to 5 without changing it

    See Difficulty Nightmare (80G) for more info.
  • Complete the game with the battle difficulty set to 7 without changing it

    See Difficulty Nightmare (80G) for more info.
  • Complete the game with the battle difficulty set to 10 without changing it

    The difficulty achievements in this game will all stack, so starting and completing the game on Nightmare (10) difficulty will also reward Hard and Normal achievements. Increasing the difficulty does not really do much aside from increase the HP, damage, and resistance of your enemies but this makes battle considerably harder if you are not at least 3-4 levels above your enemies, especially on bosses. You will also need to ensure you are using proper battle tactics such as exploiting elemental weakness, positioning for back attacks, protecting your mage/healer, and using any battlefield items to your advantage.

    In addition to your actual battle strategy and levels, be sure you always have the best possible equipment available to you, including finding and crafting the best weapons, and leveling those up to max before any bosses. You will then want to combine any gems you have to get the most stat increases and spells/attacks available so you can use nearly every elemental type with each of your characters. This again may take some grinding, though you should get most things required as you grind to be the 3-4 levels above the enemies as well.

    As for your stats, be sure to focus heavily on Speed for all characters as this will charge your ATB meter more quickly, giving you more turns in battle which is key to outpacing the enemy in damage dealt. Haste for physical damage attacks and Incantation Speed for magic attacks is important as well. From there, give Daryon, Ysoris, and Fallon more attack, and balance everyone out with some extra defense and magic defense as well.

    Once you complete the story and unlock all the difficulty-related achievements, you can lower the difficulty if you still have any other content to clean up.

  • Helped Daryon realize he has a chest problem

    This achievement is unlocked by completing a quick side-quest which can be found to the Southwest of Junion Lake. It is directly Southeat of "Crystal Fruit #10" on the Chapter 2 collectible map (see Crystal Fruits IV (60G) for the link to the maps). When you arrive here, you'll see the yellow exclamation point for the quest giver. All this quest entails is giving him 1000 gold to allow you to open the chest. You'll get a simple potion for your trouble, and the achievement. Feel free to save prior and reload to get your money back, completing the quest doesn't offer any experience or any other benefit outside of the achievement.
  • Such a mouthful, probably something important
