Key Combos for Level 11 - "The Palace"

XYX, BAA, BYA - Tai Lung Battle on 1st Floor
ABY, XYA, BXY - Tai Lung Battle on 2nd Floor
X, AB, XBY, X (repeatedly), BYX, XYA - Tai Lung Battle on 3rd Floor


Glitch Alert - Many people (including myself) could never get 100% on this level b/c it would automatically eliminate 2 or 3 of the artifacts right after a mini-boss battle. Here is a glitch that you may want to use to your advantage:

After going through the level and sitting at the level summary screen (waiting for you to choose the next level), just hit your guide button and exit the game to the dash board (not the main menu). Then, reload the game and go back and load that level. When it loads the level, it will automatically go back to the end level summary screen and show 100% complete and the achievement for that level will unlock.

Others have not had a problem getting the achievement legit. I've also heard that this only worked for some people on their INITIAL run through that level. I replayed the level and got the achievement via the glitch so for me, it wasn't my initial run through.
EmoRescueyeah u r my man!That glitch u absolutly perfect described worked for me too!It was quite frustrating trying 2 make it through this level in 100%....never got it.Finally u saved my achievement.Thx a lot....

LepraSaunit worked for me but yes it has to be your initial attempt on the missiopn

splicegraphthis cheat worked great, I would leave the first floor with 14/14 artifacts, but when I got to the second floor it would tell me 12/14.

Mickey BurnsIn addition, if you happen to actually lose artifacts during the first part before the boss battle/QTE, you can still do this and get the achievement. You don't have to have gotten all 14 protected and then loss any due to the above mentioned mini-boss glitch.

QuarantaneI tried this SEVERAL times legit and was hoping there was some kind of glitch to do it, I'm glad you posted this.

When you say your initial playthrough, does that mean the very first one? cause I believe I had to go through on normal before I could do dragon warrior.

Or do you mean your initial playthrough on any given save file?

I'll try it out and hope it works because this is the first one I've had any trouble with.

XGlacialBlackXno matter how many times i tried i always got 13 they always managed to break one on me..... so i was getting frustrated..... I tried this glitch out and it worked like a charm! Thank you very much for finding this one out!

FailedSeppukuI had tried this a dozen times today, everytime i made it with14/14 i'd get up to the 2nd floor, Tai Lung would throw his 2nd pillar at me and it'd pop up 12/14 ??

I can confirm i had finished the game and just replayed the level, so the trick doesn't have to be on your initial playthrough.

blastmastrj420iworked for me great, i had even lost a artifact before the 2nd floor props to whoever discovered this - too bad i spent 45 min on this before i checked TA!

Th3 Wii MaNHahaha I did this level literally 30 times and then I checked here, found this glitch, then as I was about to use it I beat the level legitimately. I was soooooo mad

bleedin baldyWorked perfect and this wasn't my first play through thumbs up on this thanks :)
Posted by bleedin baldy on 28 Oct 12 at 22:38
itsDraggyThumbs Up from me! Much thanks for this, it helped so much! Can confirm it DOES NOT have to be on first try through. I played the level about 7 or 8 times before reading this and it popped when I did the glitch first try.

Homunculus FuryThis worked for me and I even lost 2 of the treasures before the first fight. Worked like a charm

Posted by detrainer2 on 23 Jun 13 at 05:43
NhytmareSo I'm just curious, did someone find this glitch by playing through the level, realize they had missed an artifact and then rage quit the game and then come back to play later and get the achievement?

KJer25+1 from me...this still works as of 9/1/16...and, obviously, since there's been no patch, it will be good forever.

exact0Glad to hear that this glitch is still working for people after so many years.
Posted by exact0 on 20 Dec 16 at 01:46
xPut Name HerexIf you get bored one day, you can definitely rewrite this solution to note it doesn't matter if a glitch destroys your artifacts or you just flat out lose them in the battle, this glitch will get you your achievement. Thanks!

MasterTimosGreat solution! Still works.

GsO LightWhat a perfect glitch.. couldn't even imagine trying to protect those artifacts legit
Posted by GsO Light on 09 May 18 at 05:42
exact0Again, 10 years later, I'm glad this solution works for people. Yes, frustrating when you see that the game glitches and you think you can't ever get the achievement. Glad some people got it legit and didn't have to glitch the glitch.

REDWINGS05Can confirm this still works as of today in case there is anyone still playing this game like me lol
Posted by REDWINGS05 on 17 Apr 20 at 20:16
What’s crazy is I beat this level 100% in Student, Master and Dragon Warrior all first try, barely struggled with it, did it legit!
Posted on 22 Aug 20 at 13:24
TheBoxyBearI just can't figure out how to beat the slashers on Dragon Warrior. If I block my shield runs out before there's a window without getting hit and also get surrounded so can't dodge. Then when I try to attack they always teleport out of the way.
