    Destiny Dominated (100g)

    You get this achievement for beating the game on Hard difficulty. In fact this only requires that you beat the main story quest (the one at the top of your quest list). You'll probably want/need to do some side quests just to get your level up but don't go nuts with it, I was only at around level 20 when I finished the game.

    I'm not saying this is the best way, but this is how I did it.

    I had nearly all my points in Sorcery. Get your Ice and Shock magic attacks leveled right up. I used chakrams as my main weapon and so had that all leveled up too. Aside from Ice and Shock I also had the Healing Surge and Summon abilities leveled and placed in my quick-select.

    Then it's just a case of getting a few bits of clothing that regen your health (you can make this happen by getting your sagecrafting up and making a health regen utility gem and sticking it into a bit clothing that has a utility socket) and mana and picking up some sweet weaponary. Secondary weapons aren't too important but I went with a bow just to get some extra hits in.

    The key to winning the big battles is to buy a lot of health potions and save up your other potions too. Especially health regen and Hardened Shell (which limits the damage you take). The you want to get some Fate potions (you can make these if you have, I think, level 5 in Alchemy). These let you go into that mad fate-based rage mode. Essential against the big bosses (but not the final one).

    neeker75I just started the game a couple of days ago, and came here to look for a good strategy. Turns out my approach is pretty similar to yours, except the ice part. My chakrams has fire and lightning, and I put all my points into shock (the first magical skill I had). I'll take your advice on improving ice skills and hopefully this would be a cakewalk. Thanks and +1.

    To add to what PeaceSquid said, I just did this using a mixed Might/Sorcery with Chakras. Most of the game I had some agility too but near the end I respeced since I found sneaking wasn't helping much.

    Health potions are a must, minor worked fine for me, mostly filled my health bar.

    I did not spend a lot of time working on side quests. Maybe three to five hours on side quests at the beginning to level up and get gear. From there you will get most of the gear you need and all the xp you need as you progress. I am relatively certain the dungeons adjust to your level. When I started the final quest chain I was lvl 21 and had little trouble, although I did find it useful to sprint past a lot of enemies to save on frustration.

    You don't need to be a wiz with the fighting mechanics. Spamming chakra attacks with occasional lightning bolts on trouble targets, like casters and heavy hitters, should get you thru most of the fights. Avoid the Sprites if you can help it.

    Final battle is rather easy. Its the third to last boss battle that gave me the most grief. You will have NPCs helping you and a small room you can duck in to funnel the enemies.

    There is no reason not to do this on the 1st play. Take your time and enjoy the game go for all the other achievements on the way respecing if needed to get the others.

    You might die a handful of times by being careless like not having health potions or watching the health gauge.

    I played as a warrior and before I got to the east of the map I was level 30 and ridiculously over powered as a warrior.

    Might be a little tough in the beginning but that's not saying much as even on hard this is not a difficult game....... It's certainly not Dark Souls hard that's for sure ;)

    If going the warrior route a few points in sorcery helped early for spells once I got relentless assault in the warrior tree maxed I was unstoppable.

    Other than that all I can say is if going for all in one play, start on hard, max detect hidden and persuasion asap, and get some points into dispell then alchemy as they will help pass speechchecks and show lorestones etc on the map. Some of the other skills are required not just persuasion to pass some speech checks.

    Plaguewielder87I'd started on hard for my first time to play, and just finished the story this evening. I'm glad I did it this way instead of doing a second playthrough because there's no way I'd go through it again. I didn't find it tough even on Hard, but it was a highly disappointing game in my opinion.

    Seeker74I read this a year or so ago when I started playing the game and had no idea what Dark Souls was. I've played that game now, and I agree with you. Even the tutorial section is hard on that game. I'll be going back to this game very soon, though I completed it on the PC shortly after it came out.
