NO missable Achievements
 
 

This guide is about achievements

This guide is NOT supposed to give you any real information on how to actually play the game.
 
The intention is to tell you about the achievements, and nothing else. There are superb guides out there to teach the game to you, so check out those, if you need help.
 
 
That being said, I do want to give you 3 essential quickfire tips:
 

  • There’s actually an ingame journal with lots of explanations, especially on what the different Sigils do. You can open it with the [J] button.
  • There are 3 different kinds of shields. The type of shield you’ve equipped determines how many dashes you can chain together. The default one you start the game with will only allows 3 at a time. But there’s also an “Agile Shield”, which allows for infinite chaining. Depending on your playstyle, this’ll massively boost your survivability AND allows you to travel way faster.
  • For every crafted spell, you have to pick, whether it’s supposed to deal damage (“Destruction”), lock the enemy in place (“Control”) or apply a debuff on enemies to boost received damage (“Mastery”). The game will show you tutorial videos for more information. The message I want you to know is:
     
     
     
     
     
    Do NOT sleep on applying Mastery!
     
     
     
     
     
    We’re not talking about 10% or 20% more damage. It’s starting out with a multiplier of roughly x2 at the very start, then continually goes up until you deal like 20x the damage in a single spell in the endgame.

So, every boss has 3 available achievements.
 
One unlocks per default upon defeating the bosses, the other 2 are tied to defeating the bosses on the difficulties “Battlemage” and “Badass”.
 
 
This game is very generous regarding the difficulty achievements though.
 

  • First off, they are downward compatible.
     
     
     
    Beat them on “Badass” and all 3 unlock.
  • Secondly, you can change the difficulty even midfight! All the bosses actually have health bars at the bottom of the screen.
     
     
     
    Once that bar is low, just open the menu, change difficulty to “Badass” and make sure to click that “Apply” button, instead of leaving via [Esc].
  • Lastly, bosses respawn. Just use fast travel to go to the last checkpoint of a given level, approach the boss room again, and the boss will respawn, still unlock the harder versions of the achievements.

Note though, that changing the difficulty to “Badass” will reset the levels of all currently unequipped sigils back to 1.
 
 
 

The terribly misnamed “New Game Plus”

Lichdom: Battlemage Full Walkthrough Guide - The terribly misnamed Challenge CompletedComplete an entire New Game Plus sequence
Lichdom: Battlemage Full Walkthrough Guide - The terribly misnamed MouthfulComplete an entire series of Vortex Portals in one sitting
Lichdom: Battlemage Full Walkthrough Guide - The terribly misnamed Plus SizedComplete three sets of Vortex Portals

 
 
Lichdom: Battlemage Full Walkthrough Guide - The terribly misnamed
 
Don’t worry, “Complete an entire New Game Plus sequence” does actually NOT mean, that you have to complete all 8 areas again. Far from it, actually.
 
 
After you’ve finished off Shax, you’ll get access to a “New Game Plus Hub”. That hub consists of nothing else but a balcony with 6 portals.
 
 
Those portals have you replay a small part of any of the 8 areas, split into 3 kinds of portals:
 

  • “Skirmish”: Just reach the end of the level.
  • “Hunt”: Defeat x groups of enemies.
  • “Disable”: Kind of a tower defense mode.

One set of portals will take about 30 to 60 minutes, depending on how many skirmishes you receive, and whether or not you just run to the end with an Agile Shield or not.

Lichdom: Battlemage Full Walkthrough Guide - The terribly misnamed Cult 45Complete all Disable Portals

 
 
Lichdom: Battlemage Full Walkthrough Guide - The terribly misnamed
 
Grab a sheet of paper and keep note of which portals you’ve already completed. After you’ve finished the required 3 sets for one of the achievements above, you’ll probably run into the problem of being given portals you’ve already completed. Not a problem for skirmishes, but annoying for the other 2.
 
 
If you run into that problem, just go back to the Main Menu, and upon resuming, choose to reset portals. Repeat this, until you get the portals you’re missing.
 
 
 

Plaques & Loot Machines

Lichdom: Battlemage Full Walkthrough Guide - Plaques & Loot Machines - C61D7EC
 
 
There are 8 “Explorer” achievements, which need you to “Find all of the Plaques in [the game]”.
 
These are really hard to find and you WILL miss most of them, so check this guide while playing the game:
 

 
 
Lichdom: Battlemage Full Walkthrough Guide - Plaques & Loot Machines - C4526E3
 
 
Lichdom: Battlemage Full Walkthrough Guide - Plaques & Loot Machines - FBAC4D2
 
 
And another 4 achievements for completing up to 20 loot machines.
 
 
There are 30 of them hidden in the game and finding 20 of them shouldn’t pose a problem.
 
 
Once you’ve found a loot machine, just shoot any spell at it to initiate it.
 
 

 
 
 

Collectibles

The vast majority of these is in Drivasser. There’s about a handful in the final area, but you should sort this one out in the beginning.

Lichdom: Battlemage Full Walkthrough Guide - Collectibles - 70C959F
 
These crates don’t actually drop any loot. You’ve got to destroy 20 of them anyway.
 
The other two achievements unlock, if you destroy one of these crates while I) you and II) an enemy are directly next to it.
 
 
Lichdom: Battlemage Full Walkthrough Guide - Collectibles - B854D79
 
Soddentrod & Sinkhole
 
 
Soddentrod already has the crates just above, but there’s also these plants as the local destroyable loot container.
 
No achievement related to them, though.

 
 
 

Spellcrafting

ImageAchievementDescription
Lichdom: Battlemage Full Walkthrough Guide - Spellcrafting - 185E387ArtificerCraft your first spell

 
Easy enough, go into your inventory by pressing the [l] Button, go to crafting and just mash some ingredients together. Doesn’t need to be useful to earn the achievement.
 
 

ImageAchievementDescription
Lichdom: Battlemage Full Walkthrough Guide - Spellcrafting - ED8D332It does not get any better than thisEquip all tier 20 spells

 
This can not be unlocked until after beating the final boss. While progressing through the 8 areas of the game, each area increases the tier of dropped materials by 1.
 
 
Lichdom: Battlemage Full Walkthrough Guide - Spellcrafting - B3A50D1
 
Once the story is done, you’ll unlock Vortex Portals – see the NG+ chapter above.
 
The tier of ingredients dropped in a given portal is written in the portals “name”, before you enter it. Just keep crafting & equipping higher tier spells and the portal tiers will increase.
 
 

ImageAchievementDescription
Lichdom: Battlemage Full Walkthrough Guide - Spellcrafting - 4E17C49Truly A BadassEquip nine unique spells
Lichdom: Battlemage Full Walkthrough Guide - Spellcrafting - 1BDF6F2A need to acquire every permutationCraft every available synergy spell

 
Lichdom: Battlemage Full Walkthrough Guide - Spellcrafting - 6F9A661
 
 
Just keep auto-upgrading materials via the “Smart Inventory”, until the message on the right appears.
 
 
This indicates, that you have an upgradable legendary shape. So switch to custom inventory, go to “Synthesis” -> “Upgrade” and upgrade those non greyed out legendary shapes.
 
 
Lichdom: Battlemage Full Walkthrough Guide - Spellcrafting - 180F44F
 
Synergy spells do count as unique spells, but you can equip a maximum of 3 in your loadout, so you’ll have to craft 6 “non-synergy” shapes.
 
 
You might need to actually equip every of the 12 unique synergy spells, in order for the game/achievement to register it.

    Lichdom: Battlemage Full Walkthrough Guide - Spellcrafting - 506B42A
     
    This one is entirely RNG based. It might take quite a while to get a working shape for this one, but it’s very likely to drop before you’ve completed all the other achievements.
     
    What you need is a legendary shape, that can still be upgraded and already has the
     
    “+4 Augment Slots”
     
     
    From there, upgrade it to a “Non-Synergy Shape” and while crafting a spell, throw 4 legendary augments at it.
