  • Finding the final Wrath Shard

    Use the Serpent Hole to reach The Ashlands. Take a right out of the small cave you are transported to, and continue down the path until you reach the area with the three monsters hanging from the ceiling with the wire that you can jump to in the middle. Jump on the wire to the left of the monsters, and continue left. Grab the growth, and pull yourself up into the opening. Then, look to the right and up. You should see an orange object you can use to grab with the chain. After using the chain, walk slightly further into the area to find a chest with the last Wrath Shard.

  • Easy maximum Chaoseater Blade level

    Start the battle with the Stygian (Ashlands Boss) by killing phantom guard soldiers while riding Ruin. Equip Combat Lore to increase the experience received from each strike and Bloodthirt to restore your health. Once the Stygian frees itself, ride alongside it, and attack its body, but do not hit the helmet or the Stygian will attack you. The Stygian will disappear under the sand and resurface. Repeat the process to increase your Chaoseater Blade level. If the Stygian attacks, ride Ruin to the closed doorway during the battle to jump off and have control of Ruin. Keep your back against the door, and wait for the Stygian to charge at you. You will get knocked through the door and can return to Vulgrim to reset the battle.

  • Easy "Devastator" achievement

    Play the "Speed Brawl" Dark Realm challenge in the Choking Grounds. You will fight a large number of weak zombies during the challenge. Use your Blade Geyser when at least ten zombies are around you to get the "Devastator" achievement.

  • Easy "High Flier" achievement

    Play the "Gory End" Dark Realm challenge in the Choking Grounds. You will fight a large group of bats that can be killed in one hit by using your sword attack. War will kill a bat while it is still in the air, and you can jump off the target to another bat without hitting the ground. Jump from bat to bat with one hit kills until getting the "High Flier" achievement.

  • Easy "Open Air Parking" achievement

    In Level 1 when you see the large rock monster, look for the helicopter. It is the only place it will appear. Remain in regular form, and do not transform into a demon to be able to throw a vehicle. Hit the helicopter with the car to get the "Open Air Parking" achievement.
