3. Story walkthrough
This walkthrough is written to follow your achievement progression in a normal playthrough of the game. Starting from the first level then progressing through stage after stage follow what is in the guide below. The bottom of the walkthrough has a couple of missables and information for the bonus missions. Each hub has 5 levels and you cannot pick where you want to go first (minus the bonus hub) as after you beat a stage you move onto the next until you get a new hub and repeat, so these achievements listed here go in mission order.
Ok, let's earn some achievements. First Pick your Owl then start the game. The tutorial mission is first. It starts as a dream, and then you actually train.
Complete the Tutorial Missions
That achievement unlocks for completing the tutorial. Easy enough.
As soon as you can, hit your A button. Did you hear Shard hoot? Yeah, thats all A does. Just push A over and over until this achievement pops. As you play just press A, but don't make it a big deal to constantly hoot.
Defeat an enemy in a mission
Perform a chain attack on a single enemy in a mission
The next one pops when you kill your first enemy. During Mission 1 you will be attacked near the start. When you attack an enemy you will notice for a brief second the reticule turns red. Attack him again during this and it's considered a combo. If only you heard the Killer Instinct voice yell, "C-C-C COMBO BREAKER!!!!" which oddly means the opposite of this achievement. Ah Krome and your love for retro video games.
Do a barrel roll in a mission
"Fox your father died, DO A BARREL ROLL!" Well Peppy didn't actually say that to Fox but Star Fox's famous Do A Barrel Roll found its way into LOTG. Flick RS left or right as you're flying to perfrom a barrel roll for the achievement.
Successfully counter attack an enemy in a mission
If you ever seen an enemy flying straight at you with a button next to it push that button. You will counter his attack and earn this achievement.
Complete An Ally in the Sand without touching a twister
On the first level avoid all twisters. You can always come back later to repeat the level if you do manage to make contact with a twister.
Reach maximum speed in a mission
Build up your flying speed and you easily earn this on the first level. Hold RT to glide. If it doesn't happen don't worry. There are many points in the game where you will be able to hit top speed.
Unlock a new combat attack
As you fight you will earn new abilities. The first mission will earn you one. You can check your progess to leveling up in the pause menu. All you need to do is kill enemies so it's gonna happen as you play the game. There isn't an EXP system.
Use the Team Attack Combo to help out a wingman in trouble
Use LB to lock onto an enemy then RB to make your wingman deal with him. You have 3 wingmen at a time (later on in the game but at start you have 1 and after the 1st level you have 2) so follow one to a fight and attack right after he attacks. It should tell you it was a Team Attack and the achievement will pop.
Defeat seven enemies without being hit in a mission
Defeat 7 enemies without getting hit. It might take practice but isn't hard at all. By mission 2 you can earn this as in 1 it is a bit harder to avoid damage.
Complete all objectives in a mission successfully without dying
If you beat the mission and didn't die then you got an achievement. Later on you can buy armor to increase your health so you can really earn this on any mission without trouble.
Defeat every enemy in a story mission
You can earn this in mission 2. Kill everyone. Some missions you need to kill everyone so this will happen.
Hit an enemy with the Corkscrew in a mission
At any time use the corkscrew attack--flick RS up towards an enemy.The achievement pops when it connects.
Use the corkscrew on 20 enemies
Keep doing it. You most likely will get this early on or near the middle of the game.
Hit an enemy with a flaming coal
You can pick up a hot coal by pressing A when looking at it. When you have a hot coal lock on to an enemy and throw it. You will be finding coal a lot through the game as many missions require it. The first would be the 2nd mission.
Upgrade your owl with any Battleset
You will be notified when you unlock a battleset just by progressing through the game. Go purchase it at the shop.
Narrowly avoid colliding with an enemy in a mission
Do a barrel roll when an enemy is about to attack you. Example instead of the Press Y to counter when you get charged, you can just barrel roll to avoid damage. Can be done anytime.
Defeat any boss without losing a life
Kill a boss without dying. The First Boss is the easiest as you need to keep distance and throw coal at him. If you die you can come back later and load the boss fight up. All the boss does is circle around and strike you like the rest of the enemies. After the boss the 1st hub is complete
Complete the Desert of Kuneer Missions
An Ally in the sand
Thieves in the Night
Into the Hideout
The Chieftain Strikes
These are all levels in the 1st hub.
The achievement unlocks after the boss and you move on to the next area.
Use your Wingmen 20 times
Call for an assist a lot from your fellow Owls. This will easily happen over time as you should use them as often as you can. This must be done in one mission however but it's easy to do.
Over time you will earn this. A wind current is a big white circle that will give you extra speed. Some missions require you to use these.
Achieve a 15 hit chain in a mission
Keep Combo'n it up. Any stage with big open area battles will do.
Here is some help
Throw an enemy into the water
Throw an enemy into the water. Just fly low near water during a fight. The Forest levels all have plenty of water.
Complete a mission without losing your armor
Never lose your armor during a mission. You can try loading an older mission or just keep up on counters and barrel rolls as you advance. Your armor is part of a battleset you can purchase.
Your Y attack will break armor. You cannot use Y on a Hagsfiend.
Complete Lighting The Way without a torch going out too early
Here you go. This one can be tricky if you get caught in a fight for too long. Basically as fast as you can pick up hot coals and throw them at all the torches.
Fly like an eagle...err an Owl. This will happen before you beat the game.
Complete Pure Retaliation without being hit by a turret
This one is a tough one. Beat Mission 5 of The Forest Kingdom without getting hit by a turret. I kept quiting out and trying again just so I could stay familiar with the turret locations.
Complete the Forest Kingdom of Tyto Missions
Tyto was righto...I thinko... beat all these missions
Pure Ones Pursuit
Lighting the Way
These are all the missions in the 2nd hub
Achievement pops when you clear this area.
Wear 4 different Battlesets in missions
Buy now after the 2nd hub you should be able to buy 4 of them.
Complete Race to the Retreat in 4 minutes or less
The 1st mission of Brother Retreat. Here you go.
Successfully perform the Fall From Grace
Try your new move. You earn this by the middle of the 3rd hub area. You will notice RT LT above an enemy if you can perform the move. You can throw them against a rock and then you yourself must pull up and avoid damage.
Complete the Glauxian Brothers Retreat Missions
Wasn't much to do but beat
Race to the Retreat
A Curious Convoy
Shard to the Rescue
Battle at the Mine
The Queen’s Game
These are all levels in the 3rd hub
The Queen Boss wasn't to hard if you could keep her in your sights. Achievement unlocked and time to move to a new area.
Equip a top quality Battleset
By the time you finshed the 3rd hub you can get one of these. The last 2 armor sets. They are expensive though. Pick the one you can afford.
If you kept earning money throughout the game go for this as well. If not thats ok come back near the end.
By now you will be earning this one. Most likely it would pop before the last level.
Fly more than 200 kilometers
You should earn this on the last level of the game.
No Owl Gets Left Behind
Breaking the Signal
Clawing Towards the Forge
These are all the levels of the 4th and final hub. Once you completed Allomere's Fury, you just completed the game.
To those of us that use the internet too much you may know that Owls say O Rly?... Well Go back and replay a mission. You won't hear an owl say it but you get an achievement.
Explore all five environments in the Bonus Missions for a short time
Play all the bonus levels. Attempt each mission in the levels. The level next to the 1st is a Bonus hub (which has no levels just a bonus area) and every stage after has a bonus when you go back via level select in a hub.
There isn't a map to check so lots of these must be found on your own. Use the video to help but here is a list for those that would rather read a list.
Island of Hoole
1. Top of the main tree
2. The middle of tree in a small nook.
3. Fly around the Base of the tree. You'll notice it as you circle.
4. In an alcove near off to the right.

5. Fly high and look near mountain peaks near the edge of the map.
Pretty much just grind this one out. You can check your progress only by looking at loading screens until you see it sadly. Must be done in one playthrough. These are the gold conis you have been flying into the whole game.

Oh whoops I almost forgot replay missions for
Complete a mission using just wingmen
Try this on early missions. You cannot attack any enemies--all your wingmen must get every kill. Just fly around and do dives (Holding the Left Stick down while high up) to earn more prowess for the meter to summon another wingman.
If you didn't get it already. It is possible to miss but some may get this on a normal playthrough. The first level of the game has Crows to fight. You must kill them for them to count, not your wingman.
Continue playing after completing the game
Make a new save file and pick a new Owl and play. It will pop.
Complete the game as all Four Characters
I agree with you... THIS IS TAKING FOREVER! It's the same missions over and over. Just skip everything bonus and fly straight through the game (pardon the pun).
Once that's all done you have 1000G YEAH! That was a hoot wasn't it? Owl have to admit I had fun doing this game other than beating it over and over. Yeah I know I'm not funny...
