Optional Achievements


Available chapter 1

Northeast of the shores where you washed up is the Zephyr’s wreck site. You can’t enter the ship at first.
Find the surviving sailors at a camp by the coast. The survivor group’s leader will ask you to look for more survivors. After finding all survivors, the leader will send some to get things from the Zephyr and ask you to check on them. You can now enter the ship using wooden planks/ladders. Go inside, find what’s there, and get the achievement.

A Deeper Dark

Available chapter 1

Find the lighthouse keeper at the top of the lighthouse. He will ask you to find “the black blade” for his keeper mate. Explore the caves under the lighthouse until you find an opening to underwater tunnels. Go in, find your way through the tunnels, get “the black blade” on the other side, and bring it back to the lighthouse keeper for this achievement.

A Light in the Darkness

Available chapter 1

After reaching the refugee camp, the chamberlain will ask you to help the refugees with food and medicine. Find the cook and cleric for quests. Finish both quests for this achievement. (This also makes Iben the Ranger available as a companion)


Available chapter 2

In Horryn, you’ll face the three Reaver leaders: Oleg, Kala, and The Butcher. They are fighting each other for power. Find the “sacred artifact” under Horryn and give it to The Butcher. He will ask you to get Kala’s help. Instead, tell Oleg about The Butcher’s betrayal and ask Kala to help Oleg. They will kill each other, and you’ll get this achievement without doing anything.


Available chapter 4

After killing The Father, Horryn will be peaceful, and the inn next to the north gate will open. There, a monk will tell you about five shrines in the Outer Isles and the right prayer to use at these shrines. Just follow the quest and visit all five shrines for the achievement.

Such Wonders

Available chapter 4

Get this achievement after reaching Firgol – slightly north of Idra but south of Gradla – and completing its story. It’s a well-written cosmic horror story with a famous cosmic horror character, so I’ll let you experience it yourself.

Tower of Ash

Available chapter 4

Before leaving Horryn, a great magi’s “assistant” will ask for your help. Follow the quest, go to the Tower of Ash, finish the quest there, and get this achievement.

I hope this was helpful to you!

I love two things in life, games and sports. Although sports were my earliest interest, it was video games that got me completely addicted (in a good way). My first game was Crash Bandicoot (PS1) from the legendary studio Naughty Dog back in 1996. I turned my passion for gaming into a job back in 2019 when I transformed my geek blog (Re-actor) into the gaming website it is today.
