    Ventus871I have a question, does sparing Lagos not net you the achievement?

    TwistedsymphonyI haven't killed all of the cultists yet but after sparing Lagos he shows as killed the same way all of the other cultists did (red icon and their back turned in the detail screen) it also awarded me his triangle piece, after I completed the quest (not immediately after sparing him).

    I think this is why the achievement is to "Defeat" them not to "Kill" them. Technically I defeated Lagos with words.

    I wanted to write a small solution pertaining to the possibility of Belos the Beast of Sparta glitching out in the arena in Pephka and never dying in a way that gives you credit. This occurred to me because instead of going to Megaris at the start of Chapter 2, I decided to do literally everything I could before I got bored. This included defeating Belos before uncovering the cult's existence at the end of Chapter 3, which I assume is the reason he glitches out.

    This glitch will cost me about 15-20 hours of my life, as I'm planning on killing the rest of the cult members I have left tomorrow and it's been 11 hours so far (I'm in the middle of Chapter 8 after that much time). Since I couldn't kill Belos on my first playthrough, I went through the DLC as I intended to and then started New Game+ to beeline the base game story. Only travel to the arena in Pephka after seeing the cult and finishing Chapter 3, or he'll likely bug again. Defeating him as soon as Chapter 4 starts should be a good priority - perhaps when or during your small island trip before reaching Athens for the first time. You just want to make sure he dies early in this run just to stave off any paranoia that comes with waiting until you beat the story.

    After finishing my first playthrough, I still had 17 artifact pieces on me when starting New Game+, so I only had to see five cultists in my second run die before I was able to reach Lv6 with the spear. I've been obviously going through more cultists so far and am still accumulating now-useless artifact pieces. This will be my last achievement in the game and I am very disappointed this was not patched a year or two ago.
