These are four similar and connected achievements revolving around building 3 unique buildings in your capital city, for the Defense of Crete Booster pack.

Starting off, you need to visit Crete and don't be fooled by the quest giver standing in the middle; that's a demo quest for the people who doesn't have the Crete pack yet. Look above this quest-giver and click the building to start the 'Horde' like mode of defeating wave after wave of cretans. A few pointers and tips to keep in mind:

- Go 'Easy: Levels 5-10' no matter. Harder doesn't give you anything but extra XP, Gold, Crete & Empire Points, and although nice, it's not what we're after here. You'll get plenty of that doing easy.

- Find a map that you are comfortable with and since you are going to be doing this so many times it's sickening, you'll have the strategy down to a bloody science.

- Playing co-op is a great way to alleviate some frustration and have some company while you grind. Both players will reap the rewards for the same time spent.

http://www.trueachievements.com/achievement.aspx?achievement... For this, first do a 10 Wave match and choose the blueprint (fourth chooseable reward on the list) as your reward. Shouldn't take you more than 15min. To actually build the blueprint you will need:
40x Cypress Wood & Minoan Tools & Knossos Marble = 120x unique resources that can only be gotten doing these waves.

I suggest keeping 'Easy' on at all times, but change the setup to 30 waves. This should take you between 45min to an hour. Once done you can select which of the three resources you want, and note that where 10 waves gives you 2 of the resources, 20 waves will give you 5, and 30 waves will net you 10.

In total, roughly 10-12 hours to get all 120x resources to build the Temple of Minos.

http://www.trueachievements.com/achievement.aspx?achievement... The second wonder blueprint, Hubris of Icarus, can be gotten as a reward from doing 20 waves and the quest 'More Cretins of the Coast!'. Building this will take 60x of each resource so keep doing Easy 30 waves, 18 times to be able to build this.

http://www.trueachievements.com/achievement.aspx?achievement... The Shrine of the Bound Minotaur blueprint is a reward for doing a 30 wave game. To build the blueprint you'll need a whopping 100x of each resource, and have to do another 30 games. You won't be getting this any time soon.

http://www.trueachievements.com/achievement.aspx?achievement... Awarded to you once all three wonders have been built. To break it down, you need to play a minimum of 63 games to net this, or around 50 hours spent.

There's no use doing a separate solution for these four achievements, so I'll have this up for all four.
