Just wanted to make a thread where we can discuss the achievements for this game. It's a possibility that what is discussed here can be added to LiquidPrince's achievement guide.
Some achievements I felt I should explain, that I have gotten...
- Improviser (use the environment against an enemy): any "arena" that has a support beam or something similar can be used against the opponent. Get them to have their back against it, whether you have to position them by strafing, or use acrobatics to jump over. Then I usually call upon Elika (Y), followed by (X) and they should go through the beam.
- Warrior Special (dodge 20 attacks from the Warrior in one battle): the real question here is what's considered to be a dodge. Simply press [direction + A] away from the Warrior. I got a couple off just by rolling around him. I don't think it counts sometimes, but just spend time dodging his swings until the achievement unlocks.
- Ruined Citadel Runner (run from Sun Temple fertile grounds to Windmill fertile grounds in 5 minutes): the only question here might be what the fertile ground is. And somewhat obviously, it's where you "Heal" the location. Most of these runner achievements should be dealt with the same way. First, heal the entire set of locations that need to be run through. Then, teleport to [example: Sun Temple] and set a checkpoint for Windmill. Then start running, once you get to the Windmill fertile grounds, the achievement will unlock.
Not a massive amount of achievements in PoP are confusing, but maybe this thread will go to good use.
