From the depths of darkness, a dragon soars. A new dark fantasy Three Kingdoms action RPG, presented by Team NINJA. 184 AD, Later Han Dynasty China. The land is overcome by chaos and destruction. The imperial dynasty that prospered for many years is now about to collapse. Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty is a dramatic, action-packed story of a nameless militia soldier fighting for survival in a dark fantasy version of the Later Han Dynasty where demons plague the Three Kingdoms. Players fight off deadly creatures and enemy soldiers using swordplay based on the Chinese martial arts, attempting to overcome the odds by awakening the true power from within.

Step 1: Complete All Missions + Collectibles
There are no difficulties to choose in this game, in true Souls-like fashion. The difficulty you have with the game will depend on how many Souls games you've played and how good you are at this type of combat. You will likely find yourself struggling in the beginning and having a progressively easier time as you go through the levels. A boss or two may cause you a bigger headache than others, but trial and error will see you through.

This game is a bit unique as far as the Souls games I've played before - it is not open-world. Each mission is its own contained level, and they are fairly small and linear. This makes things much easier in my opinion, especially as far as the collectibles go. In addition, you can summon up to two companions or play online with friends, which is also immensely helpful. Some portions of the game must be played solo though.

Be sure to plant all the battle flags in each level, collect all tablets and chicada shells, and feed all the Shitieshou. Try to bring the same AI companion on as many missions as possible to max their bond, while using this walkthrough for help with the levels and all collectibles. If you max someone's bond early, you will get a free 4* set of armor and a 4* weapon to help make some of the mid-game content a little easier. You can replay missions as often as you'd like to grind a few levels if you're struggling with any content, but most bosses really need to be overcome with technical skill and memorization of their move sets. Pay special attention to main missions 3 and 6-8 which all have optional objectives with individual achievements tied to them.

Step 2: Clean Up
After beating all the missions, you can replay any that you need to if you missed collectibles or any of the optional achievements. However, be mindful that aside from battle flags, the game does not track any of your collectibles, so if you missed something it'll be trial and error to figure out where it was. Take care to collect everything on your first run through each level. Collectibles are stored as soon as you pick them up for the first time, so if you die before resting at a battle flag, they'll still be saved. Similarly, if you go back to a mission to find a collectible, you can leave as soon as you get it - no need to finish the mission.
Battle of Zhongyuan DLC

The first piece of paid DLC adds a bunch of new content: three new main battlefields, seven new sub battlefields, a new weapon, new enemies, and new bosses. To access it, you need to Travel to it from any Battle Flag. Tab over to the Battle of Zhongyuan tab and choose the first main battlefield, A Solitary Resistance, to get started.

Progress like you would in the base game, prioritizing your next mission based on the lower recommended level. Along the way, you'll unlock Dian Wei and Xu Chu as allies. The first two main battlefields aren't bad, as are the first few sub battlefields. The final boss at the end of the third main battlefield is quite the challenge though, so be prepared to put some work in on this one (think Lu Bu from the base game). Know that beating him is the hardest part of this DLC though, so if you can manage it, you can finish the rest. Beating this boss also unlocks the new Divine Beast, Feilian. Make sure to equip it, since there's an achievement for using it for the first time.

With the main battlefields finished, it's time to complete the remaining sub battlefields. The last two are pretty difficult, and will definitely test your skills and patience, but stick with it and you'll succeed. With all of the missions done, you may just need to mop up a few things, such as grinding out cestus kills and maxing your bond with your two new allies. Refer to the guide for how to quickly and easily do these things, wrapping up this completion.

Overall Conclusion:
Wo Long is a pretty impressive game in general, and a nice entry level Souls-like with its contained, concise levels and Reinforcement system that allows two companions to help you in combat. The achievement list isn't very difficult, with nothing missable and full level select at any time, but you'll want to do a good job tracking collectibles on your own as the game doesn't do that for you. With this premiering on Game Pass, it's worth a shot for any Action-RPG fan, but especially for Souls fans.

There are 64 achievements with a total of 1195 points

  • Unlock all achievements.

    Congrats on your Platinum Trophy!
  • Reach Level 15.

  • As you defeat enemies, you will earn this game's version of experience called Genuine Qi. You can also redeem different types of collectibles for more Qi. Using Qi, you will upgrade five different attributes (virtues) on your character: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water. The total number of upgrades you have is your total character level, so upgrade any combination of the five virtues a total of 80 times to unlock this achievement. You can grind Qi by replaying any level, with the final levels having the most return for your time.

    Note: You can respec your character at any time, and for free, from one of the NPCs at Mt. Tianzhushan, so don't worry too much about what virtue you're increasing early on. You'll be able to try out different builds and weapons throughout the game.
  • Dominate 15 sub battlefields.

    See Hunting the Great Deer (50G) for more info.
  • Upgrade your first piece of equipment.

    See Keen-edged (25G) and Adamantine (25G) for more info.
  • Upgrade a weapon to its fullest capacity.

    Upgrading weapons is done with Steel, which can be picked up in levels, dropped from enemies, or as mission rewards. Steel comes in Ranks 1-9, with each rank being required to upgrade a weapon by +1 each. You will find rarer steel in later missions. Bring the weapon and steel to the blacksmith at Mt. Tianzhushan (or find her inside missions) to finalize your upgrades.
  • Upgrade a piece of armor to its fullest capacity.

    Upgrading armor is done with Leather, which can be picked up in levels, dropped from enemies, or as mission rewards. Leather comes in Ranks 1-9, with each rank being required to upgrade a weapon by +1 each. You will find rarer leather in later missions. Bring the armor piece and leather to the blacksmith at Mt. Tianzhushan (or find her inside missions) to finalize your upgrades.
  • Embed your first jewel at the Forge.

    Embedment is a process also done through the blacksmith, unlocked once you have access to the hidden village at Mt. Tianzhushan. Gear will have various numbers of embedment slots based on its rarity, so while some pieces of gear may have the same base stats, one with a higher star rating can quickly become more powerful through this process. Select any embedment slot at the blacksmith to remove an effect, then use Jewel Fragments (found in mission rewards or by salvaging old equipment) and pay a small fee in Copper (money) to slot a new effect into a piece of equipment for this achievement.
  • Decorate your first item at the Forge.

    Once again, your friendly blacksmith will get you this achievement. Simply choose the Decorate option, unlocked once you have access to the hidden village at Mt. Tianzhushan, and change the appearance of any piece of gear to unlock this for a small amount of Copper.
  • Learn your first Wizardry Spell.

    See Wizardry Master (25G) for more info.
  • Learn all Wizardry Spells.

    There are a total of 70 spells to unlock inside the various skill trees attached to the five virtues. You will unlock enough Wizardry Points to purchase all the spells on your way to Level 80 for Only at Eighty Did I Finally Return (15G), so you don't need to do anything extra for this aside from actually purchasing the spells along the way.
  • Interact with the Five Phases for the first time.

    This achievement is unlocked by using a spell from all five virtues at any time. You should be switching spells depending on the boss you're fighting or trying out the various Divine Beasts, so this should come naturally. If not, just equip four unique spells and use them then rest at a flag and equip something from the fifth virtue and use that as well to unlock the achievement
  • Raise Morale Rank to 20 for the first time.

    Morale Rank is something that affects your strength in battle, and is a good gauge of how difficult an enemy may be. If an enemy has a larger number than you, they'll do more damage and take less damage. To increase your Morale Rank, plant the Marking and Battle flags throughout a level. You will lose some morale if you die, but it can be regained by defeating the enemy that killed you upon respawn. You will likely get this in the third or fourth mission as the number of flags you can plant increases.
  • Receive a sworn brothers' boon for the first time.

    This achievement is unlocked by receiving a gift from one of the allies you can use through Reinforcement. The more you take an ally on missions, the stronger your bond will grow. You can also give them various gifts to increase their Oath Level which are rewarded through unlocking more titles. Once you get someone to Oath Level 10, they will send you a gift through the game's Deliveries menu at a Battle Flag, and once you claim the reward the achievement will unlock. The boon you receive will always be a set of 4* armor pieces and a 4* weapon, so this is a quick way to work toward Fantastic Form (15G) as well.
  • Join forces with all available warriors.

    For this achievement you must use the Reinforcement system to have an AI version of every warrior join you on missions. More options will unlock as the story progresses (though not every warrior is available for every mission), and you'll want to keep track of this on your own as the game does not really have a way of tracking who you have or have not used. However, anyone with a completely empty Oath bar will be someone you haven't increased bond with, which likely means you didn't join forces at any point.

    Once you have completed the story, you will have access to every warrior and can quickly knock this out by using the Battle Flag at Mt. Tianzhushan and choosing the tutorial mission (Village of Calamity) on the new Rising Dragon difficulty. Once you've used all 17 warriors, the achievement will unlock. You don't even have to complete a mission, just start and quit for each one you still need. Here is a list of all the warriors:
    • Zhang Liao
    • Zhang Jiao
    • Xun Yu
    • Xiahou Dun
    • Xiahou Yuan
    • Han Dang
    • Cheng Pu
    • Huang Gai
    • Sun Quan
    • Sun Ce
    • Cao Cao
    • Hong Jing
    • Sun Jian
    • Zhang Fei
    • Guan Yu
    • Zhao Yun
    • Liu Bei
  • Equip a full 4★ set consisting of: melee weapon, ranged weapon, accessory, and 4 armor pieces.

    You will find a large amount of 4* pieces in the final few missions of the game, so this shouldn't be too difficult to accomplish. You'll also get a full set of 4* armor and a weapon by unlocking the Merit beyond Measure (15G) achievement, leaving only one other weapon and an accessory to find. You can use your accolade points to purchase loot boxes from one of the NPCs at Mt. Tianzhushan for a chance at a 4* item as well. Once you have a 4* item in all seven slots, the achievement will unlock.
  • Upgrade the Dragon's Cure Pot to its greatest capacity and effectiveness.

    The Dragon's Cure Pot is this game's version of a health potion. Throughout the game you will find Dragon Vein Crystals and Dragon Vein Essences, which upgrade the amount of uses you have and the amount of health each one will restore, respectively. They present as a larger glowing object, similar to any other item pickup. Refer to the walkthrough listed in the Road Map for the locations of all these collectibles, use this guide which has a dedicated listing for just this collectible type, or follow the video below. Be sure to use them from your inventory once you have found them to actually apply the upgrades!
  • Collect all tablets.

    Tablets are essentially a lore collectible that can be found inside missions, and there are 31 total to collect for this achievement. They present as a larger glowing object, similar to any other item pickup. Refer to the walkthrough listed in the Road Map for all their locations, use this guide which has a dedicated listing for just this collectible type, or follow the video below if you prefer that route.
  • Raise your first Battle Flag.

    See Fly It High (25G) for more info.
  • Raise all Battle Flags.

    Battle Flags, as mentioned in Unstoppable (15G), allow your morale to increase so you can face stronger enemies in each mission. These also serve as the save points inside the levels, and allow you to spend your Qi to level up, purchase and equip spells, travel to new locations, hire Reinforcements, restore your health potions, etc. The levels in this game are much more linear than most Souls-like games, so you shouldn't have much trouble finding these, and the number available is always listed on screen, so be sure to find them all before killing the target in each mission. Refer to the walkthrough listed in the Road Map for all of their locations.

    Note: Marking Flags are not required for this achievement, but do make each level easier so be sure to plant them anyway.
  • Successfully deflect 10 critical blows.

    Critical Blows are unblockable special attacks that enemies can do, marked by the enemy glowing red for a moment before attacking. Deflecting these during boss fights is critical to your sucess. To do so, you will need to press button-b.png a moment prior to the enemy's attack hitting you. The timing of this varies depending on the enemy and individual attack, so there will certainly be some trial and error involved. You'll honestly probably get this as you work toward beating the tutorial boss like I did unless you're really good at these games.
  • Land 50 Fatal Strikes.

    Fatal Strikes are attacks done when an enemy is staggered. To stagger an enemy, you must deal a large enough combination of regular and spirit damage to completely demoralize them. They will stand still with a red mark on their body if you are in range, and so long as you hit button-y.png to use a spirit attack before they recover their morale, you will unleash a deadly attack on the enemy. This is yet another key to success, especially in boss battles. Most of the time, one or two critical blow deflections as outlined in Sharp Reflexes (15G) will result in an opportunity for a fatal blow.
  • Dominate 10 battlefields with a companion.

    Story related and can not be missed.
  • Fend off invaders 10 times.

    Invaders will come into your game, clearly visible as glowing red enemies, at random points in the story. You'll get a few on-screen prompts that something is going to happen - however, it doesn't always happen even when you do see those messages. Not sure why, but it's somewhat random. Watching a replay of someone else play a mission, they could get invaded while you don't at the exact same spot. There's a side-quest in Part 4 called Realm of Battle which should have guaranteed invaders. Repeat this a few times if needed. Kill these enemies when they appear to get progress toward this achievement.

    Note: Player-controlled invasions from other real human people do not count toward this achievement, so if you don't want to fuss with that mechanic you can leave it turned off. It is only the game-controlled NPC invaders that are needed.
  • Exact vengeance 10 times.

    Vengeance occurs when you are killed and after respawning you go back and kill the same enemy who killed you. This recovers your morale and Qi. You can also enact vengeance on enemies who have killed somone else in the Wo Long community if you are playing online. You will notice purple swords embedded in the ground marking where someone else died and which enemy killed them. Find and kill that enemy to get vengeance for the other person.
  • Use 10 Tiger Seals.

    Tiger Seals are used to call in Reinforcements during missions. You will get these from completing titles and as rewards for missions. You need to use at least 17 of them for Great Gatherings (15G) so this will come along the way.

    Story related and can not be missed.
  • Hear the Blindfolded Boy's decision.

    Story related and can not be missed.
  • Dominate all main and sub battlefields.

    Wo Long consists of 46 total quests, broken down into 16 main quests and 30 side quests. Each quest is called a "battlefield" and you simply need to progress through the level until you defeat a target. The main missions will have the larger, more difficult bosses while the side quests usually have just a strong human enemy or retread of an older mid-level boss. None of the quests are missable, and the side-quests can be done in any order or ignored completely until you do the main quest, but to keep up the recommended level for the main quest, you'll likely need to do all the side-quests along the way anyway. Be sure to use this walkthrough for any help you may need, as well as grabbing all the collectibles and optional achievements along the way.
  • Feed your first Shitieshou.

    See How Precious! (25G) for more info.
  • Feed all of the Shitieshou.

    Shitieshou are adorable little panda demons that can be found throughout the game. If you feed them a piece of equipment by dropping it from your inventory directly in front of them, they will reward you with an item and then be transported to Mt. Tianzshushan once you leave the mission. There are a total of 23 to find in the game. All of them are pointed out in the walkthrough linked in the Road Map, you can use this guide which is dedicated specifically to our little panda demons, or follow the video below.
  • Repel Xielong in "Centuries of Glory Burned Away."

    Centuries of Glory Burned Away is the eighth main mission of the game. This is one of the few optional tasks inside the missions, and requires that you do enough damage to the large dragon patrolling the skies and raining down lightning to make it fly away. You can cheese this by using your strongest ranged spells/weapons and hiding under the covered tower near what is labeled as Battle Flag 4 in the walkthrough found in the Road Map, or just avoid the bursts of three lightning attacks and fire back in between like the video below.
  • Defeat all Warlocks performing the ritual in "The Valley of Crying Wraiths."

    This optional achievement takes place in The Valley of Crying Wraiths, the third main mission. There are four total spots where Warlocks are chanting, and you need to kill all four groups for this achievement. Most are along the very clear main path, but there are a few offshoots you'll need to explore. If you're going for all collectibles, this will be no problem. Follow the walkthrough linked in the Road Map which will point out all the warlocks as well as the other collectibles.

    Note: You do not need to kill every Warlock in the level as some of them are not chanting or working on a ritual, they are simply standing around. You also don't have to have all the Warlocks dead at the same time. Since all enemies respawn if you die or rest at a Battle Flag, it is likely they will be resurrected at some point. So long as you have killed a specific Warlock once, it will count toward your goal.
  • Save the captured Hermits in "Fall of the Corrupted Eunuch."

    This optional achievement is in the sixth main mission, Fall of the Corrupted Eunuch. For this you need to find a hidden set of keys in the level (located near Battle Flag 2) then return to the beginning of the level near Battle Flag 1 and release an NPC from a locked prison cell who will join you on Mt Tianzhushan. Once again, following the walkthrough in the Road Map will point all of this out for you. You can also just run straight to the keys and back to the hermit as seen in the video below.
  • Defeat 5 foes with a ballista in "The Battle of Hulaoguan Pass."

    This optional achievement is in the seventh main mission, The Battle of Hulaoguan Pass. For this you need to kill five enemies with a ballista, one of which is found directly at the start of the level. This can quickly be accomplished by killing one or two enemies, interacting with the Battle Flag to reset all the enemies, and repeating this process until the achievement unlocks.
  • Give a certain someone the maximum amount of Golden Cicada Shells.

    Golden Cicada Shells are yet another collectible found in Wo Long. There are 20 total to find, all of which are pointed out in the walkthrough linked in the Road Map. Alternatively, you can use this guide which is dedicated to this collectible type, or follow the video below. Once you have all 20 shells, you need to turn them in to the Hermit of Tianzhu who we saved for the Dogged Justice (15G) achievement. You can turn the shells in a few at a time for item rewards throughout the game if you'd like, or just give him all 20 at once. He is found at the highest point of Mt. Tianzhushan on top of a small building.

DLC: Battle of Zhongyuan (Store Link)

There are 13 achievements with a total of 195 points

  • Conquer 5 main and sub battlefields of Battle of Zhongyuan.

    Refer to The Unscrupulous Hero (15G) for more information.
  • Defeat 100 enemies using cestuses.

    The cestuses are a new weapon introduced in this DLC, and are basically gauntlets. You'll get some as rewards for various battlefields, and likely find a bunch more from chests and random enemy drops.

    Once you have them, you can either use them through the DLC and unlock this naturally, or, if you don't want to compromise your build, you can grind this achievement out afterward. This is easily done by traveling to any of the early battlefields, from Act 2, run around and kill enemies (they'll die in a hit or two at this point, and do virtually no damage to you), then rest at a Battle Flag to respawn enemies, and repeat until this achievement unlocks.
  • Swear oaths with all of the new allies in Battle of Zhongyuan.

    There are two new allies in this DLC: Dian Wei and Xu Chu. For this achievement, you need to get them both to level 10 in the Reinforcements menu.

    If you make it a point to take them with you on every mission that the game lets you, you should have Xu Chu up pretty high (level 8 maybe) but Dian Wei only halfway or so. To finish them off, you can either grind it by replaying areas, killing enemies, and resetting them by resting at a Battle Flag, or using Cups of Cordiality. If you're doing the former method, consider grinding out cestus kills with both allies as your Reinforcements to boost their levels more. Just know that the weaker the enemies are, the slower your allies will grow in level. If you'd rather just use Cups of Cordiality, you can finish off this achievement in seconds if you have enough Cups. If you need more, there is a guaranteed one at the end of the sub mission 'The Uninhibited Heart,' right before the end of the mission. You can grind them out here if you need more. This would do double duty, killing enemies to level your allies, and getting another Cup to boost their level. 

Secret achievements

  • Remedy Xu Chu's misunderstanding.

    Story-related; cannot be missed.

    This achievement unlocks upon beating the boss of the first main battlefield, A Solitary Resistance.

    Battle Flags are very obvious, but the Marking Flags are a little hidden. This battlefield is basically just one open area. Of the five Battle Flags, three are up on the rooftops: two are on the left side and one is on the right side, right next to the shortcut ladder you can kick down. The other two Marking Flags are inside buildings: one on the right before you go through the fence into the city area, and the second is in another building off to the right behind a door you need to interact with to open.

    There is also a Shitieshou in this battlefield. It's up on the backmost left rooftop, that you can jump to.
  • Quell the Yellow Turban Rebellion in Qing Province.

    Story-related; cannot be missed.

    This achievement unlocks upon beating the boss at the end of the second main battlefield, Sons of the Yellow Heaven.

    The Battle Flags are again right in your path, but only three Marking Flags in this mission. The second is at Battle Flag 4, up on the rooftop next to you, accessed by going between the two buildings and climbing on the roof. The third is right after beating the worm miniboss, up on the ledge where the fight took place.

    There is also a Shitieshou in this battlefield. Right by the shrine where the warlock is, near the beginning of the mission, climb up onto the roof next to the shrine and drop into the hole in the roof to find this one.
  • Swear an oath with Dian Wei.

    Story-related; cannot be missed.

    This achievement unlocks upon beating the boss at the end of the third and final main Battlefield, In The Name of Elai. This mission is longer than the others, but it's very sectioned off, making it pretty easy to have isolated fights with the bigger enemies, of which there are many. There are also a whopping ten Marking Flags in this mission. Thankfully, they're all relatively easy to find. The only one that took me a while to spot was the one right above where you spawn. You need to head forward and then jump on top of the cart on the left side of the road, right at the intersection where enemies will shoot at you, and from on top of the cart, double back onto the rooftops to reach a Marking Flag overlooking the starting spawn. The other Marking Flags are placed in easy to spot locations, either in buildings, on rooftops, or tucked in corners. Just remember to shoot each oil pot with a turret to destroy the wall behind it.

    Speaking of oil pots, there are two spots in this mission perfectly set up with three enemies patrolling a single oil pot for you to unlock Beware of Fire! (15G). Refer to that achievement for more information, but might as well take care of it while you're here.

    Also in this mission is another Shitieshou. You'll encounter a new type of spider-like enemy partway through the level. After beating it, right as you enter the next area, on the right side will be some bamboo you can cut through to reach this one.

    As for the boss of this level, as noted in the roadmap, he is extremely difficult. In my opinion, at least as hard as Lu Bu from the base game. He can take off into the air making him impossible to really hit, and his attacks can be brutal if you miss a deflection. Poison is probably most effective against him. It will stun him with poison stacks, and poison also negates his annoying tornado attacks entirely. Earth is also pretty good against him. Unfortunately, Reinforcements are entirely useless in this fight, so don't bother bringing any extra. They just die within seconds. As for attacking, the only time I safely attacked was after deflecting a critical blow or after deflecting one of his ground smash attacks. Other than that, you'll want to keep your distance, because his melee attacks are constant and punishing. This fight will be a true test of skill, but persevere and you'll eventually succeed and complete this final mission. 
  • Test Xu Chu's worthiness to be Dian Wei's successor.

    This achievement unlocks upon beating the sub battlefield 'Guileless Mind, Tigerlike Might,' which is a duel of sorts against Xu Chu. It isn't your traditional duel because regular attacks don't interrupt like against human enemies. Instead, this plays like a traditional boss battle. And quite a challenging and annoying one at that. Xu Chu, in addition to being very strong, is extremely fast and relentless. There is just no downtime whatsoever between his attacks to actually attack him. Really, the only advice I can give is keep your distance, because you really don't want to get trapped by his swinging attack, and just bide your time until he does a critical blow. Deflect it, and wait and repeat for the next one.
  • Eliminate the phantoms of the Yellow Turban leaders.

    This achievement unlocks upon beating the sub battlefield 'Beyond the Heavens.' Refer to The Unscrupulous Hero (15G) for unlocking this sub battlefield, since it's the only one that doesn't unlock by conventional means.

    This sub battlefield is a gauntlet against enemies and all three of the Yellow Turban bosses from the base game. The good news is that the game gives you a checkpoint after every single wave, meaning you'll be able to refill your health potions. The bad news is that you only get a bump in fortitude rank each time you kill a boss, and even then, you'll constantly be at a 5+ Morale Rank disadvantage against enemies and bosses. This is, in my opinion, what really makes this mission challenging, because a single missed deflection on a boss's red Critical Blow and it's essentially a one hit kill on you because you're such a lower rank.

    Thankfully, you can use the single battle flag to change your build whenever. This is my experience and strategy for each:
    • No special strategy on enemies. Rush right at the first one and take it out so it's easy to focus on the other one or two
    • On the named human enemies, I just stun locked them: spam button-x.png attacks and end with a button-y.png attack. Even if they block the button-x.png attack, the button-y.png attack breaks their block, damages them, and fills their spirit meter. Eventually you'll be able to do a Fatal Strike and finish them off
    • For the General of Man, he's very weak to fire. Use a fire Divine Beast, equip a good fire spell and/or the fire spell that sets your weapon on fire. Keep your distance and just wait for him to do Critical Blows so you can deflect them. Essentially, same strategy as your first against him on the first mission of the base game, except use fire to speed it up and sometimes stun him
    • General of Earth is surprisingly weak to earth. I used to earth pillar attack constantly. This fight can actually be very easy. Just keep your distance very far from him, and it'll be extremely easy to avoid his elemental attacks. His only two red Critical Blows are both so obviously telegraphed and easy to deflect, that doing so should be your main way to take him out
    • General of Heaven is weak to poison, but fire is good too. I used Tengshe, who drops poisons pools all over, as my Divine Beast, the fire spell to set my weapon on fire, and the earth pillar spell. The main frustration with this boss is that he can spawn the other two Generals. The good news though is that these spawned bosses only exist for maybe 15-20 seconds before they disappear, so if you can just avoid them, they'll eventually just go away. However, with this build I was able to actually interrupt his spawning of these bosses every single time. I started the fight by setting my sword on fire, charging him, using the earth pillars, then a full combo with a spirit attack at the end. with my sword on fire, this stunned him and cancelled his spawning every single time I did it. A use of Tengshe will interrupt another spawn. I saved this for his last one where he spawns both bosses together. I think I just got lucky the second spawning time that I happened to use multiple elements on him at once. Like with the other two bosses, keep your distance and wait for him to either jump up and land on you (deflect this and then punish him) or wait for a Critical Blow deflection. I used Tengshe immediately after he charged up for the second half of the fight, and stayed extremely aggressive with earth pillars and fire sword to finish off the second phase as quickly as I could
  • Conquer all main and sub battlefields of Battle of Zhongyuan.

    This DLC introduces three new main battlefields and seven new sub battlefields. Like with the base game, completing main battlefields unlocks new sub battlefields. However, there is one exception in this DLC: the final sub battlefield, 'Beyond the Heavens,' is only unlocked by finding three hidden scrolls in this DLC. Reports of where to find these vary, and from what I can tell, they seem to be random drops. One article I found says they're in each of the three main battlefields, but that's not where I got them. I got one in the second main battlefield, one in the third, and one in the first sub battlefield. Additionally, for me, I found two in chests and got one as a drop from a random enemy. It therefore seems like all three scrolls are random drops, and can be obtained from any chest or enemy in this DLC. I will update this if more information comes to light, but for now I would say it's in your best interest to kill every enemy you see in each mission, and open all the chests you find (and explore to find them).
  • Raise every Battle Flag in Battle of Zhongyuan.

    Battle Flags, like in the base, are not hidden at all, since they're meant to be your standard checkpoints through each mission. You should therefore find all battle flags in all of the missions without issue. The story achievements note where the Marking Flags are though, since those help keep your Morale Rank up for the boss fights.

    Note that you'll need to access and start each of the sub battlefields for their battle flags to count though, just like in the base game. This achievement will therefore unlock upon starting up the last sub battlefield in this DLC.
  • Summon Feilian for the first time.

    Feilian is a new Divine Beast that is automatically unlocked upon beating the third and final main battlefield of this DLC. Once you unlock it, simply equip it at any Battle Flag and then fill the meter so you can use it for the first time, unlocking this achievement.
  • Feed every Shitieshou in Battle of Zhongyuan.

    There are five new Shitieshou in this DLC that you need to feed for this achievement: one in each of the three main battlefields, and one in each of the two sub battlefields that are actual missions (i.e. the ones that aren't duels). Here's where to find each.
    1. A Solitary Resistance - On the backmost left rooftop of the big open area this mission takes place in. Jump from rooftop to rooftop to reach this roof in the back left corner
    2. Sons of the Yellow Heaven - When you get to the area with the warlock at the little shrine area in the back left of the first half of this mission, kill the warlock at the shrine, and right next to it are some platforms to jump up onto the nearby rooftop. There is a hole in this roof you can fall through to find this one inside the building
    3. In the Name of Elai - Around halfway through this mission you'll have to fight a new enemy, a spider-like thing that spews poison gas. After you beat it you'll head into a new section of the mission. Immediately after entering, on the right side is some bamboo you can break through to find this one up on a ledge
    4. A Requiem for the Deceased - After heading across the little bridge, there are two buildings on the left side. Go between the two buildings to find two sleeping enemies. Kill them, and this one is behind them tucked back in behind the building
    5. An Everlasting Regret - Down in the fountain area where the three Shuigui are patrolling, you need to head down there and then up onto a side ledge with some bamboo you can destroy to find this one behind
  • Strike 3 enemies with a single Oil Pot explosion in Yuan City.

    This achievement takes places in the third main battlefield, 'In The Name of Elai.' You'll see oil pots all around this level, and while you could get the attention of enemies, try to lure them near an oil pot, then try to explode it, that is completely unnecessary. There are actually two points in this level where three enemies are patrolling right next to an oil pot. What you need to do is make sure you don't alert any of them, get to the turret nearby, and then wait until the three enemies are close to the pot before you shoot it, detonating it and hitting them all.

    I took a quick video below to show the first opportunity. As you round the corner of the streets early in the mission, keep to the left side behind the buildings, and you'll come up on a turret with an enemy on it. Quickly and carefully take him out. There is also an archer across the way that you should shoot to take out too, unless you want to try to be really fast. Then, you can simply wait for the three enemies to converge on the oil pot before you shoot it. See the video below for this in action.
