NOTE: All of the achievements are for the quest mode, however they will still work in "instant action" or "choose opponent" as long as you load in to quest first. Basically, don't play instant action or choose opponent straight up or you may miss out on the battle achievements and level based achievements etc.

this game is some good stuff
markdarkness 14 Oct 2021 14:17
Does anybody remember if this version is as cheaty as the PC one in which the enemy has a lot of unfair RNG and such?
PaddyW 13 Nov 2021 20:09
Is there a faster way to beat Bane four times with the different characters than four playthroughs?
TeddyWestside 15 Nov 2021 03:28
Puzzle Quest is notorious for cheating AI across the board, but it's pretty easy to get overpowered yourself. If you're looking to get through the game quicker, you can do "stat-farming", where you go between towns you've sieged collecting gold then spend that gold on improving skills all at once to keep the cost low. That should allow you to waltz through the main quest.

NOTE TO ALL: To stop the game from crashing, in case you get those, I've discovered that turning both music and SFX off within the in-game menu pretty much makes it behave like it should.

Oof... four playthroughs are no joke.

Tips:
* Rune of Jewels/Daggers + Dragons (find in Blood Moon/default/Dragon Valley) makes for very good items from midgame on.
* I'd personally rank the classes as Druid < Wizard < Warrior < Knight. Casters are severely impacted at endgame by Lord Bane's ludicrous resistances. The Rune of Jewels strategy is just to max mana reserves and go to town matching skulls, which is RNG but less so than trying to cast against Bane.
* If you want to skip enemies, train your mount to higher levels.
* It takes an hour or two to hit 50000G by walking the Selentina-Gallia-Drakenburg circuit after conquering those cities. Might be faster if you actually remember to train your mount.
* Best way to hit Specialist/Well-Skilled is to dump your level-up points into your 1pt skills and dump the 50000G needed for the achievement into your other skills. You'll need more than 50000G, but you can grind it up as needed.

Thanks for the set!

I'll start by saying this was a great set and I appreciate it wasn't more brutal than it was to master.

That being said, I'll further confirm that 4 playthroughs are needed to master...and...yikes. Here's some more tips if you'd like to give this one a go...

-Get a mount ASAP (build a dungeon and stable in your citadel to unlock the capture option around level 10). This will allow you to skip overworld battles once the mount is leveled which will save you HOURS of play time. Level 20 will allow you to skip up to the minotaur area, 30 will get you to end game, 37 will get you everything but Undead Dragons which only spawn in one spot anyway (which you can bypass).

-The achievement "Immortality" is missable. I won't spoil anything here, see the achievements for my comments around that.

-I recommend the play order of Druid > Knight > Warrior > Wizard. I saved Druid till my last playthrough and that was a mistake as I was just trying to get through the game as quickly as possible. Druid would benefit a lot from completing all the side quests (thus giving you many of the achievements). Rushing to the end with a Druid was painful. I recommend the second playthrough be done with the Knight as they benefit a lot from taking the actions needed for the missable "Immortality" achievement. See my comments on that achievement for more info.

-Capture the castles of Draenburg and Gallia (south part of the map) to farm money early (build a forge, then a siege workshop in the citadel to unlock this option). Drakenburg is the easier of the two to take.

- Do not spend points earned from EXP on anything other than the single point skills (Fire and Air Mastery on the Wizard for example). Spend money to increase the ranks of your other skills (via the temple in your citadel). I spread out my purchased points equally across all skills, but I think it comes down to play style on how you'd like to spend them.

Hope all this helps others! Good luck!

The Druid is a really rough path to take... think carefully before picking it.
