Achievements (spoilers)
« on: December 31, 2018, 06:28:26 PM »

Here's the list of all achievements and their subtexts, along with suggestions for how to get them, in order of how common they are in Steam. I think these are also all feats, which give you a Memora point to spend on skills the first time you do them in any mission.

I'd love to get ideas on the ones I don't have! Do you have some I don't? How did you get them?

  • 67.8% Hard To Reach: Switched a lever without touching it (You will almost certainly get this in the training level, throwing an object at the lever)
  • 21.8% Dual Caster: Successfully casted a spell with two runestones. ("ᚢᛗ" is the first spell you can cast)
  • 21.8% Untouchable Assassin: Defeated an enemy without being damaged. (Git gud? Or, sneak up behind with a decent weapon at high enough level and you can one-hit people)
  • 16.8% Physics Kill: Caused an enemy to be killed by physics damage. (Chucking things at monsters does this, though I've also had it go off on its own, when they're killed by traps etc)
  • 10.8% Incite Commotion: Enemies convinced to turn on each other. (Hitting each other accidentally seems to trigger this, too. Outcasts attacking monsters does not).
  • 10.7% Crawstuck: Jammed a trap with an object. (I got this in a tutorial level when turning off a trap with a lever, but metal crates may also work)
  • 8.5% Long Jump: Leap Boldly Ascendant. (I've got this while jumping off cliffs, especially with various jumping skills... but the first time I got it was from trying to jump over a Ripper and getting smacked across a lake by it!)
  • 7.7% Secrets of the Deep Slugs: Hid in a Deep Slug smoke trail. (Crouch any time the slugs are smoky: sneaking around in Upper Erebus will likely trigger this on its own.)
  • 5.2% Cat Burglar: Gathered a key item without being detected. (You'll get this naturally if you get the challenge to not be detected)
  • 4.6% Fire Kill: Caused an enemy to be killed by Fire. (Merely holding a burning thing up to their face until they die is apparently not enough. Igniting the building around them seems to work.)
  • 4.3% Silent Assassin: Killed an enemy without being detected. (In later levels you can sneak up and one-shot people from behind. Otherwise, attacking them in darkness can work, as can shooting them from afar.)
  • 2.7% Flawless Victory: Resolved a combat encounter against multiple opponents who detected me without taking damage. (Git gud, or use ranged weapons and dodge theirs. This triggered for me after bashing a bunch of people that I thought must fersure have hit me at least once... I guess not.)
  • 2.0% Night Vision: Because the darkness should fear you. (Seems to trigger from just crouching in the darkness after buying the night vision skill.)
  • 1.8% Environment Master: Caused multiple enemies to be killed by physics damage. (This happens on its own in some levels, just by loading the level.)
  • 1.7% Unseen Ascendant: Resolved multiple quest objectives undetected. (If you get the challenge to do so multiple times, then you'll get this for free.)
  • 1.3% Secrets of Wall Running: Used Wall Run off a free object. (Requires the Wall Run skill. This triggered naturally by running and jumping around the levels, but I think it was from a table)
  • 1.1% Long Wall Run: The world is your playground. (Requires the Wall Run skill, and a long enough wall. I've had this going down stairs in Marcaul, but a long corridor might be a better bet.)
  • 1.0% Uncompromising Obstruction: Blocked an arrow with a held object. (hold a crate while you're being shot at. Since this blocks their sight, maybe peek over it until they fire)
  • 0.9% What Wizards Know and Others Don't: Rebranded a wand with a new spell. (Requires the Focus Mastery skill, then just rightclick while holding a wand, select a spell, and rightclick again. Don't do it with a wand that uses runes you don't have, or you won't be able to get its original spell back!)
  • 0.6% Pounce: Pounced on an enemy. (Requires the Pounce skill. Jump onto their head, Mario-style, from a ledge, or above them on stairs, or just from the ground if you have good enough jump skills. Often a 1-hit kill, especially in combination with other passives like Ambush.)
  • 0.4% Pyromaniac: Caused multiple enemies to be killed by Fire. (Again, this Just Happens in some levels, but lighting the house they're standing in on fire doesn't hurt.)
  • 0.2% Formulaic Expert: Successfully casted a spell with four runestones. (Requires enough runes, but ᛉᛒᚱ? where ? is any rune from the right of the wheel, is a level-1 spell to fire that thing as a missile. See my post on spells for other 4-rune spells.)

Ones that I don't have, and would love help and advice with:
  • 46.4% Cautious First Steps Snuck by initial foes without being detected. (I should start a new game just to do this!)
  • 3.6% Friend of Deep Slugs: Feed a Deep Slug one of it's favorite foods. (any idea what foods?)
  • 1.8% Parry: A good fighter knows when to Parry. (any idea what you have to parry? Or when? Or... anything? I've parried in fights, but not got this.)
  • 1.5% Pit Fallen: Killed an enemy with a trap.(many enemies have been killed with traps: any tips? Must it be a pit trap?)
  • 0.5% Bark & Bite: Defeated a Ripper. (any idea how you have to defeat it? I've slain them with swords, fire, missiles...)
  • 0.4% Deadly Sorcerer: Killed an enemy with spells.
  • 0.4% Cheated Death: Used "Merciful Fate" to cheat death. (Is this a spell? What runes?)
  • 0.4% Seasoned Silent Assassin: Killed several enemies without being detected.
  • 0.3% Mind Killer: A Mind Crippler was killed indirectly.
  • 0.1% Trapper: Killed multiple enemies with traps.
  • 0.1% Tripwire Expert: Killed an enemy with a tripwire. (Requires a tripwire. Have not yet tried, though I did kill myself once...)
  • 0.1% Saurian Slide: The Saurians passed this technique down for generations.
  • 0.0% Undetected Distraction: Caused a creature to investigate a sound, but was undetected. (I have distracted creatures with thrown or carried object sounds, but not got this. Bugged?)
  • 0.0% Weaponized Slug: Killed an enemy using a Deep Slug trail.
  • 0.0% Arcane Regeneration: Regained a massive amount of health using Arcane Regeneration. (Is this a spell? What runes?)
  • 0.0% Diverting Behavior: Caused an enemy to investigate a sound. (I suspect this is broken?)
  • 0.0% Trapper Keeper: Bound or stuck in place a creature, who was then dispatched by a trap device.
  • 0.0% Bound Time: Dispatched an enemy who was bound while time was slowed.
  • 0.0% Dynamics of Reversal: Reflected projectile. (Is this a spell? What runes?)
  • 0.0% Balancing Act: Balanced on a plank. (I messed about for a long time with a plank, but with no success. Tips?)
  • 0.0% Combo Attack: Performed a combo attack with a sword, axe, or without a weapon. (Is this skill dependent?)
  • 0.0% Box Master: Jumped on a levitated box (Is this a spell? What runes? It does not seem to be ᚾᛃ (Bind wood) or ᛖᛃ (Move Wood) so far as I can tell.)
  • 0.0% Meteoric Demise: Killed an enemy with a burning crate. (I have held the burning crates up to their melting faces until they died and didn't get this. I've tried with the crate sitting beside them in case carrying it didn't count. Do I have to beat them to death with the flaming crate?)

I suspect several, particularly the 0% ones, are broken/bugged achievements.

3.6% Friend of Deep Slugs: Feed a Deep Slug one of it's favorite foods.
I got this one by feeding a slug Eyeless Nether Fish a couple of times (first time, it mouthed at the fish, but didn't consume it).

0.4% Deadly Sorcerer: Killed an enemy with spells.
I got this one by using ᚦᛏᚢ on a skeleton close up.

24 down, 21 to go!

0.4% Seasoned Silent Assassin: Killed several enemies without being detected.
I one-hit three enemies in a row in Athena's Might in the Cytheron Catacombs, while in stealth.

25 down, 20 to go!

Oh boy! The Saurian Slide already jumps to mind... I'm surprised more people haven't tried it.

My hint is to try running and crouching on a hill... Underswamp has a good candidate for this.

0.2% Formulaic Expert: Successfully casted a spell with four runestones. (Requires enough runes, but ᛉᛒᚱ? where ? is any rune from the right of the wheel, is a level-1 spell to fire that thing as a missile. See my post on spells for other 4-rune spells.)

Hey, I think you found a bug with the spell parser, doubling up ᛉ and ᚱ like that (the ᚱ cancels the ᛉ).

It's probably not the most important thing on my list, but since I'm out sick today, it might be about as much as I have brain for.  :)

Very cool to see you digging into the game like this.

Bah, fixing our cheaty level-one achieves! :D Go you, you bugfixin' demon you!

And for digging into the game... hee hee, you don't know the half of it :D It really makes me appreciate the amount of development that's gone into the game, seeing just the vast amount of stuff that's there to dig into and document :D

I'm looking to add a big infodump to some wiki somewhere, since posts here are not editable :(

I've posted an updated version of this, adding in Feats, and with sortable columns and other shinies, to:

Does this mean that ᛉ and ᚱ might become valid for spell effects/nouns rather than just aiming effects? I'm currently looking at these as being possibly bugged part of formulas, since they don't work as the first term in a spell with a "target" rune.

But it seems that there are "Protect" spells intended: not only do I see strings for "Protect Beast" and "Protect Person", I also see a note from Draupnir:
Quote from: Draupnir - Signage/rune_ProtectFireAir
You are in far too deep now, sister. Our road has never been more dangerous. Allow me to Protect you with a field of Fire or Air. –Draupnir

Note also that, both from my experience in-game, and looking at the data files, it seems that some of the runes *do not appear to exist in game*. Specifically ᚠ and ᛇ exist only on the wands Hidemender (ᚢᚠ) and Earthpatch (ᚢᛇ) respectively, and other runes don't exist at all, which means that spell formulas like like ᛒᚠ, ᛒᛇ, ᛖᚠ, ᚦᚠ, ᛒᚠ, ᛒᛇ, ᚦᚺ can't be formed, even though they are hinted at by ingame strings and graffiti:
Quote from: Draupnir - Signage/Outcast_037
With this knowledge, I can Create Beasts, boulders of the Earth, balls of Fire... Such powers are yours for the asking, sister, if you would cease your chase. –Draupnir
Quote from: Draupnir - Signage/rune_MoveBeastandBind
Why sneak like a common Outcast, when you can walk untouched, Dahlia. When Abyssal Beasts grow overbold, I simply Move or Bind them. –Draupnir
Quote from: Draupnir - Signage/rune_MoveBeastandBind

There's also the idiomatic spell ᛒᛏᚠ - "Cloud of Flies" which sounds a ton of fun but if Draupnir is to be believed, it requires ᚠ.
Quote from: Draupnir - Signage/rune_CloudofFlies
Dahlia, I hope you didn't find my swarms too disconcerting. Creatures great and small obey now that I know to Create the Spirits of Beasts. –Draupnir
