The hit RPG returns! From the minds of the bestselling author R.A. Salvatore, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion lead designer Ken Rolston, comes Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning. Remastered with stunning visuals and refined gameplay Re-Reckoning delivers intense, customizable RPG combat inside a sprawling game world.
Step 1: Complete the Main Story on Hard
There are very few missable achievements in this game, but you will want to take note of a few things before you get too far in the story. First, start the game on Hard difficulty and do not change it at any point so you can get "Destiny Dominated" without issue. Second, do "Out of Your League" as soon as possible. If you level up too far, no enemies will be out of your league anymore, so you'd have to start a new game. Third, invest skill points into persuasion early and often so you can work on "A Wink and a Smile" - there are a limited number of these in conversations, so if you fail too many you'll miss out on the achievement.
Aside from those three achievements, you can play the main story at your leisure. Be sure to work on the lorestone collectibles as you go, though mopping them up later with a maxed out Detect Hidden skill is very simple as they will show on your map. You'll need a minimum amount of points in certain skills to get some of the achievements, though you can respec your character whenever you'd like. Be sure to max out Blacksmithing at 10, get Sagecrafting to 8, and Alchemy to 5. Increasing your other skills will make some achievements easier, but you could technically complete all of them with no bonuses. Really, you can make your character however you want and just respec later on and get whatever achievement you need, then repec again back to your preferred setup.
Once the main story is complete, you can move on to the two "DLC" questlines, which in this version of the game are installed and ready for you straight away. You can technically start these earlier based on your character level, but I played them after just because that's how I did it on Xbox 360.
Step 2: The Legend of Dead Kel
There is one missable achievement in this questline ("Manic Pixie Dream Elf"), and it requires you to always choose "nice" dialogue options (the top-right choice) when speaking with Rast Brattigan. As you play through the story, make sure you loot everything you find and return to Gravehal Keep often to continue renovating it, and check for the map pieces when you are in the corresponding dungeons. You can do all of that whenever, so if you don't get something during the story specifically, don't worry about it.
Step 3: Teeth of Naros
There is one missable achievement in this questline ("The Harder They Fall"), and it requires you to defeat a certain boss without killing his attendants first. Be careful and reload your save if you fail. Other than that, follow the main quest and do the two miscellaneous achievements whenever you like.
Step 4: Mop Up
If you did not finish everything from the "main" part of the achievement list in Step 1, such as collecting all the lorestones or some of the crafting achievements, knock all that out now. Otherwise, you likely got the full 1000G from Step 3 above. Congrats!
Step 1: Complete the Story + Side-Quests
Your first task in the DLC should be to complete the main story quests. This will unlock all the fast travel points, which makes completing the side-quests much easier. Feel free to knock out any side-quests or steps in side-quests that you run into or aren't too far from the main quest markers, but get those done first. Once you reach the second-to-last story quest "Hope of the Fatesworn" make sure you take note of the missable achievement The Floor is Lava (10G) during this boss fight. The final quest "New Horizons" is the point of no return, so move on to finishing all the side-quests and other achievements, or just make a hard save prior to leaving on the boat so you can load that back up and finish. Be aware that two side-quests can be failed, so check that description for more info on how to successfully complete all 32 quests for Customer Service (60G).
This DLC can be played on any difficulty, so assuming you have done the base game or at the very least unlocked Destiny Dominated (50G), you can lower the difficulty to make things easier on yourself.
Step 2: Chaos Portals
You will be introduced to the Chaos Portals during the story quests, and will complete seven of these as part of the story. There are an additional 18 that spawn in the main map of the base game that need to be closed as well. You can fast travel to that area at any point, so you could work on these for extra experience if needed before finishing the story or side-quests of the DLC. I'd suggest visiting a Fateweaver and maxing out the Chaos Sight skill so that they all show on the map.
Step 3: Mop Up
At this point, the only thing you may have left are the few miscellanous combat-related achievements. All of these are tied to the new armor sets that you will have collected as part of the side-quests. See those relevant achievements below for how to unlock them. And if you chose to do everything prior to completing the "New Horizons" quest, the lone story-related achievement should be your last.
This is one of my favorite underrated games. It has such a great blend of Fable and World of Warcraft lore/graphics with some cool God of War style combat. The chakrams are one of the more fun weapons I've ever used in an RPG. For only $40 with the DLC included and a new expansion coming next year, I can't recommend this game enough. The achievements are also very simple if you watch out for the missables, though it's a larger game and will take some time. This version uses the Xbox One's achievement tracking system through the dashboard which helps a ton.
