The other post was removed so im updating mine to reflect that.

This achievement only requires you to obtain 300 different items in your item compendium. You DO NOT have to have all 300 on hand so sell them for gold if you want to help you get the million gold achievement faster as you will need the gold to buy some extra items to help you get too the 300 item mark. Before i got the achieve i had sold a bunch of items. I got scared that i may need to keep them on hand so i stopped selling. When the achievement popped i had exactly 247 items in my inventory and 314 items in my compendium. Im not sure what doesnt count but since my compendium was at 314 im guessing some sort of magic or soul items with the magic users didn't count. If anyone can shed light on what doesnt count please post here and let others know.

To speed up the achievement progress i recomend you use multiple characters to get items that other characters cant get. I got around 260 items in my compendium from using Alucard alone. It may also be possible you dont have to use others characters its your choice. After i got a ton of items with alucard i had a friend run me through each chapter with the different characters on each difficulty so i could grab stuff i didn't have. I also went through after i got the 1,000,000 gold achieve and bought any items in the shop that had a 0 by it wether or not i knew that i had purchased it before to be safe.

I counted my items down in the compendium a few times over the course of my play. Going in the compendium and counting down each column is the only way to keep a total of your compendium items.

If you feel any info here is inaccurate please let me know. Also i apologize to the other guy who posted his soloution. I just felt more time should of been involved in checking the facts. I hope this helps someone.
