===============================================================================
The most up-to-date version of this FAQ can always been found on GameFAQs
(www.gamefaqs.com)

After my Boss FAQ was generally well recieved, I thought I'd just throw this
little side project out there as well. Oh, and just so you know, I've left
out any Live-based achievements as I don't have live and thus can't say much
about them.

This guide will probably contain a few name based spoilers, but that's about
it.

===============================================================================
                          Power up the Tower [10G] [PWR]
===============================================================================
                 Retrieve the Tower Heart to power up the Tower.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You find the Tower Heart in the first few minutes in Mellow Hills. If you don't
have this, you probably haven't started the game yet.

===============================================================================
                           Rebuild the Tower [10G] [RTT]
===============================================================================
                Retrieve a Crane to start rebuilding the Tower.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You get the Crane inside the Slave Camp near the start of the game. Unmissable.

===============================================================================
                           Obtain A Mistress [20G] [OAM]
===============================================================================
         Get yourself a little company and some help spending your money.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When you enter Castle Spree early on, you'll meet Rose. Collect her luggage
for her and she'll join you as your mistress, earning you this Achievement.

===============================================================================
                            Retrieve the Food [10G] [RTF]
===============================================================================
                 Retrieve the Food, but will you keep it or return it?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You get this when you break into the Halfling homes. It's part of the story
and pretty much unmissable.

===============================================================================
                            Defeat Melvin [20G] [DFM]
===============================================================================
                               Puncture a Hero.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I could spend a long time typing the next few achievements out, or I could
redirect you to the Boss FAQ, also written by me, which will help you much more.

===============================================================================
                             Full Corruption [50G] [FCR]
===============================================================================
                            Win with the blackest heart.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In order to get 100% Corruption, you have to do a few things at certain points
in the story. If you miss one and it saves, you'll have to start your game over
to get this Achievement.

Also. I recommend killing every peasant you see. It'll save you time later on.

Kill Your First Peasant
-----------------------
Easily done. Just make your minions attack the scarecrow when you first see
him. (Note: It just means one peasant. Any one peasant, so it doesn't matter
when you do this.)

Trash Spree
-----------
Simply send your minions into every house in spree. You can tell if the house
is trashed as if it is trashed, there is smoke coming out of it.
A few houses can't be trashes, so if it's not working go to the next house and
continue as normal

Kill 20 Peasants
----------------
You get this as soon as you go to rescue the slaves if you've been killing
everyone you see.

Keep Peasants Food
------------------
In the Halfling homes, kill the peasants when they ask for their food back then
take it to the gateway.

Kill 10 Women
-------------
I got this in one lap of mass murder around Spree

Kill 100 Peasants
-----------------
I killed everyone I saw from the start of the game, and by the time I was on
the other side of Spree after freeing *cough*killing*cough* the slaves, I had
got this.

Harasser of Humans
------------------
The first human you attack in Spree should get you this. I'll warn you that all
of the Peasants go on the attack when you get this...

Suppressed Spree
----------------
...Until you kill a few to set an example and get this

Capture the 10 Slaves
---------------------
Once you're corrupt enough, when you enter Mellow Hills, there will be a man
there offering you a woman to you. Hit her with your sword, then use minions
to carry her to the portal like you would any object. There are 10 slaves
placed around Mellow Hills that you have to capture and take back to get this.

Cause A Bar Fight in the Halfway to Heaven Inn in Heaven's Peak
---------------------------------------------------------------
If you need help locating the inn: from when you come out of the Understreets
simply follow the path all the way left to the west side of Heven's Peak.

Just attack someone whilst in the Inn to get this. Oh, and watch out as your
minions will get caught up in the fight too.

Trash All the Houses in Heavens Peak
------------------------------------
You're looking for houses that aren't barricaded or have rubble in front of
them. There are only about 5, so they're hard to spot, but keep at it for a
while and you'll find them.

Dump Rose for Velvet
--------------------
Simple enough, after you've beaten Sir William, open the door and then have
your minions carry off Velvet and the bed.

Set fire to the Sacred Grove
----------------------------
You'll know when you're in the Sacred Grove in Evernight it's the only bit of
untainted land in all of the area. Just use a Fire spell on the grass. It'll
kill those pesky Bloody Unicorns as well as earn you your corruption.

Just make sure you don't roast some minions, or worse...

Kill 10 Elves
-------------
The spirit elves in Evernight don't count. Kill the ones in the Dwarven lands
for this. They're easy enough to spot.

Feed the Elves to the Slugs
---------------------------
When you're in the Glittering Mine, you'll get to a point where a cutscene
triggers with some elves asking you to help them. Instead, open the door
without killing the slugs and watch as the slugs eat them.

Take the Gold Instead of Saving the Female Elves
------------------------------------------------
After you defeat Rollie/Goldo. It's pretty much self-explanatory what you have
to do. If you need some minions, there's a brown spawn point across the room
from the Bag of Gold.

Steal the Mother Goddess Statue
-------------------------------
After you've captured Jewel, make your minions carry an egg over to the Bones,
then kill the creature that goes after the egg. It'll explode, clearing the
bones out of the way. Let your minions auto-carry the statue until the ghost
elves appear, then use Blue Minions to kill them and manually direct
(LT + Right Stick) the statue-carrying minions onto the Gateway.

Kill the Traitors of Spree
--------------------------
After you've captured Jewel, Kahn will attack Spree. After you've repelled the
attack, you get a choice on whether to kill the people who led you into
ambushes or not... *Chop*

Enemy of Mankind
----------------
The only one that'll take a while. You have to kill 1000 Peasants. I advise
Heavens Peak after you've cleared the plague. Run from the city gate to Halfway
to Heaven then back, and you'll rack up the kills in no time at all. Perhaps
some music will make things seem to go faster as well?

After you've done this, you have to defeat the final boss to get the
achievement.

===============================================================================
                            Zero Corruption [50G] [ZCR]
===============================================================================
                        Win with the clearest conscience.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Simply do the opposite of everything above

===============================================================================
                               Red Minions [10G] [RDM]
===============================================================================
                               Retreieve the Red Hive.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You get the Red Minion Hive in Melvin's Kitchen. It's pretty much unmissable.

===============================================================================
                              Green Minions [10G] [GRM]
===============================================================================
                               Retrieve the Green Hive.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This one can be a little more difficult. You have to use the ledges at the side
of the water so your minions can cross safely to Viridian Caves, then complete
the mini-dungeon as instructed.

===============================================================================
                               Blue Minions [10G] [BLM]
===============================================================================
                               Retrieve the Blue Hive.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Use the Green Minions to clear the poison in front of the Moist Hollows in
Heaven's Peak then enter and complete the mini-dungeon for the Blue Hive.

(Note: To defeat the Serpent, sweep your minions in front of it, then when it
starts it's attack, pull them back and hit it with your weapon.)

===============================================================================
                               Steel Smelter [10G] [SEM]
===============================================================================
                                 Retrieve a Smelter
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Just out of the top gate of Spree. You need red minions to clear the flames
away from it, and a few browns to take on the halflings and operate a switch
on the way back.

===============================================================================
                               Durium Smelter [15G] [DEM]
===============================================================================
                               Retrieve a powerful Smelter
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In Understreets [2]. After opening the gate in Heaven's Peak, run up the hill
to the place where you entered Heaven's Peak the first time,
grab some reds, and run back to the Understreets.

If you look to your left, you'll see some flames, so use your reds to put them
out and enter Understreets [2]. When inside, simply battle your way through the
zombie hordes and you'll eventually find yourself at the Durium Smelter (and
another Domination Spell)

===============================================================================
                             Arcanium Smelter [20G] [AEM]
===============================================================================
                           Retrieve the most poweful Smelter
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In the Arcanium Mines. When you've made it through the Brewery, go left up the
path, and turn right when you see a right turn. These are the Arcanium Mines
(Note: if you're still having trouble finding it, look for an area with lots of
Magma Beetles).

Head inside and you'll be treated to a scene, showing you that the Arcanium
Smelter is right near the entrance, and you can pick it up practically
unhindered, so do just that.

Unfortunately at this point Gnarl chimes in and says you'll have to go the long
way around to get back, which leads you all around the mines.

Turn off the flames with the switch just above where the Smelter was and kill
anything standing in your way, proceeding along the path until you see a series
of flames blocking your path, as well as a platform to the right of them.

(Note: at this point, if you look behind you, you'll see the Fire 3 spell, so
grab it if you wish, although it'll make the next part ever so slightly
more difficult)

Go up the platform and hit the first flame switch, which will change the
flames to the second grate, and your Smelter-carrying minions will move
forward. Hit the switch again and thensend the minions down the wood in front
of you to kill the Dwarves.

Move to the second switch and repeat, until your minions get out of the flame
puzzle.

You have finally met up with your minions now, so look to your left and you'll
see a spawner, so you can replace any minions you've lost.

Replace your lost minions, and then proceed forward. You'll run into the mother
slug. There's not much strategy to this fight, so just send your minions to
kill her. When the battle's over, you've got a clean run to the gateway.

*Credit to Capgun* If you go backwards through the path, you can clear out all
the enemies beforehand(with or without your minions, I did it without them,
except for the switchs). That way, you can get the mine, fire spell and gold
bag out with little difficulty. I dont know how it happened, but when I
tried to fight the giant slug thing, I ran away to recoup some health
and it died by itself.. Anyway, once the path is clear, send your
minions around for the mine and other objects and get the stuff easily.
Last time I checked, the enemies(except for the fire beetles) dont
respawn either.

Farming Lifeforce for this Achievement
--------------------------------------
Beetles Names/Lifeforce
-----------------------
Battler Beetle = Brown
Dazzler Beetle = Blue
Magma Beetle = Red
Puff Beetle = Green
-----------------------
Go to the dungeons and get 3/4 reds, 1/4 blues. Spawn ________ beetles
(more on this in a minute).

When the battle starts, immediately set a guard point for the blues where
you're standing, then move a little forward and set a guard point for the reds.

Now, run forward slowly, and try to pull back 1-3 beetles to just in front of
your guard points, then take the hits whilst your reds barrage them with fire.

If any of your reds die, your blues will immediately pull them back and
ressurect them. With this strategy, you will get 75 lifeforce for every battle
you complete.

GLITCH WARNING: Sometimes this achievement won't be earned until you get
another Ultimate _______ Achievement, so I recommend doing steel last to make
sure if it doesn't activate, you'll miss out on the least gamerscore.

equipment, take your minions out 1 at a time until you see the percentage go
down, at which point send them all back and withdraw that number.

Example: if number 47/50 made the percent go down, send them all back, then
withdraw 1-46. Set them a guard point, then take out the one that needs
equipment and have him smash boxes solo with you, as other minions can
sometimes block off the ones without equipment from getting it.

Oh, and before you take the minion out, kill the black sheep so he doesn't end
up dead.
