You get this achievement by completing the game without pushing cn_X to use a level up to 'buy' a Perk. Acquiring Perks any other way is completely fine.


Whilst you can use any character, i used Hadar the Templar. Hadar gains Mana by picking up Experience Shards. By rotating weapons he effectively has unlimited Mana.

He starts with 150 health and if you pick Easy difficulty this should be enough.

First i'd suggest playing the game enough to know attack patterns and to unlock some better weapons, you can keep restarting until you get your favoured weapon but i'd suggest any Staff bar Undead Scepter (shoots in a fan), something like Eye of Twilight or Eagle Staff is great. Wraith Rings spell is where the early game damage is and is great for trash and big enemies, even bosses.

You shouldn't have any trouble but to make life easier, level up on Floors 1-3 as this adds 5HP per level, DON'T PUSH cn_X or you'll void the achievement. What doesn't void the achievement is Secret Room, Treasure Box or paying Life/Mana to gain Perks. So seek out those Secret Rooms and don't pass up Red Trap Rooms, they always hold a Perk or an Amulet and a good Amulet can go far.
