This is as simple as getting all of the other achievements in the game. Once your penultimate achievement pops this one will unlock.

Here is a basic overview of the achievements so that you know which ones to look out for and which ones to not worry about. They are also generally ordered chronologically (although that is based on the order in which I think you may play) within their given title:


These achievements are not missable and you will get by playing through the game normally. Only titles are used to avoid spoilers (except for Curious Map).

- Self Recollection
- Last Giant
- Sinner's Bonfire
- Iron Keep Bonfire
- Gulch Bonfire
- Brightstone Bonfire
- Looking Glass Knight
- King's Ring
- Ancient Dragon
- The Heir

- Curious Map: this will unlock if you get all of the above, and light the bonfires.


These achievements are gained by discovering the covenants, keep the locations (after comma in brackets) in mind so you don't miss them. These are easy and not missable.

- Covenant of the Meek (Way of Blue, Majula)
- Covenant of the Fittest (Company of Champions, Majula)
- Protector Covenant (Blue Sentinels, Cathedral of Blue)
- Clangorous Covenant (Bell Keepers, Belfry Sol/Belfry Luna)
- Sanguinary Covenant (Brotherhood of Blood, Undead Purgatory)
- Brilliant Covenant (Heirs of the Sun, Harvest Valley)
- Gnawing Covenant (Rat King, Grave of Saints/Doors of Pharros)
- Abysmal Covenant (Pilgrims of Dark, Black Gulch/Shaded Forest/Drangleic Castle)
- Covenant of Ancients (Dragon Remnants, Iron Keep via Dragon Shrine)

- Selfless Giver: max-out devotion to covenant, I suggest you do this with the Pilgrims of Dark, it is the easiest and will come if you want PvE completion anyway.


Some of these achievements are missable!

- Change of Clothes: give Rosabeth some clothes after you unpetrify her before the shaded forest. (Missable if she dies, see detailed guide).

- Gathering of Exiles: this is missable if any of the NPCs die.
Get the following NPCs to go to Majula:
- Merchant Hag Melentia (Forest of Fallen Giants)
- Cale the Cartographer (Forest of Fallen Giants)
- Licia of Lindeldt (Heide's Tower of Flame)
- Carhillion of the Fold (No Man's Wharf)
- Stone Trader Chloanne (Harvest valley)
- Laddersmith Gilligan (Earthen Peak)
- Rosabeth of Melfia (Majula; path to Shaded Forest)

The following are achievements based off getting special equipment from certain characters, you will have to perform certain tasks before doing parts of the game (Recommend seeing their detailed guides). These are not missable as you can get them with bonfire ascetics to redo areas if you need to:

- Smith for Life: Inherit equipment from Steady Hand McDuff.
- Garrulous Miser: Inherit equipment from Laddersmith Gilligan.
- Reflections of Disembodiment: Inherit equipment from the head of Vengarl.
- Lucatiel: Inherit equipment from Lucatiel of Mirrah. * Missable.
- Moonlight Greatsword: Inherit equipment from Benhart of Jugo.
- Hold the Fort: Inherit equipment from Captain Drummond.

Collected Items:

These are not missable (try not to kill NPCs, but if you do then use their gravestone), but getting all of the spells will either mean a lot of PvP to max certain covenants, or going to NG++ and buying them from Chancellor Wellager in Drangleic Castle. They can all be gained across multiple play throughs (e.g. if you miss a gesture, then get it in NG+).

- Gesture Maestro: Find all of the gestures, all but one are learned from talking to NPCs, the other is from the Sunlight Alter (statue in Harvest Valley).
- Master of Sorcery: Find all of the sorceries in the game.
- Master of Miracles: Find all of the miracles in the game.
- Master of Pyromancy: Find all of the pyromancies in the game.
- Master of Hexes: Find all of the hexes in the game.


- Supreme Weapon: Upgrade a weapon to +10, unmissable.
- Vendrick: kill Vendrick.
- This is Dark Souls: Die. If you haven't died after a small amount of time playing then you are amazing and I suggest you continue to go deathless if possible to get the special ring. Otherwise, jump off a cliff.
