Anyone for whether you can do without achievements?

Someone on the subreddit r/MicrosoftRewards posted about it and people are talking about their experience and method. It was posted 5/12/2020 @ about 12:30pm PST. I just happened upon it right now and am about to read the steamcommunity post someone linked. One person said they checked after having farmed 3,000 XP, but they may have been playing already beforehand. Good luck, party people.

Is it a violation if I copy and paste what the posted info in that thread? Or I guess from the Steam page?

As far as I can see, earning the first achievement is unavoidable, unless you quit and restart the game over and over before the unlock point? Not sure how long that'd end up taking.

Hey everyone,

Here is a walkthrough guide for the weekly Xbox Game Pass Rewards Quest for Battle Chasers: Nightwar which tasks you with “Earning 15,000 XP.” I had never played this game before this quest, had no idea what I was doing, and it still only took about 34 minutes from booting the game up. I’ll post some tips below. Video can be found here: https://youtu.be/0P9r5iM7FBo

The beginning of the game is pretty linear, meaning there’s not much else you can do other than follow the path. Just follow the path and click A on anything that pops up that you can interact with. I don’t exactly know how XP is awarded (it might only be from combat), but I figured collecting items and interacting with things could potentially give XP so I did that whenever I saw something.

Eventually you’ll run into your first Battle, where you fight a slime monster. The combat is turn based, similar to Pokemon, and as such, you take turns choosing your moves. Your Actions are going to be your simple attack and a simple defense move. As you can see in the video, I absolutely spammed the regular attack for every battle. Instead of doing this, you also have the option to choose “Abilities,” which are more powerful attacks, defenses, and heals. These attacks will use up more energy (or manna, the blue bar) than the simple attacks, so you can’t spam them.

You’ll unlock an achievement once you make it out of the linear portion of the game. At this point the road branches off in 3 ways and red icons will pop up where enemies are. Since you get XP from fighting, I generally just went and fought all of the nearby enemies. Spam your simple attacks, mix in some of the abilities, and you should be fine. If you need to heal during battle, the big guy has an ability to use a turn on healing one person by a decent amount, and that might be worth it if you think one of your characters is going to die during the battle. If you go on the right path, you’ll reach the Village Ruins, where you unlock a third character. This character is better at attacks but has lower health.

Past this, you’ll get to another split in the road. Go north (up/left) towards the town. Talk to the guy with the yellow exclamation over his head to activate a quest. The quest will take you back the way you just came from and down to a new area. This area has a new type of battle called a “combo” (denoted by an extra group of skulls next to the enemy’s icon), which means that the fight will have waves. Make sure you’ve healed up before entering this fight. To heal your party, swap to the big guy with LB/RB, and press X to use a healing solution. You only have a finite amount of these so only use when you need them. Investigate the strange campsite where your quest icon is and move on after the boss fight.

Return to town to turn in the quest. At this point in the video, I wasn’t paying any attention at all to the quest/instructions, so I just walked around aimlessly trying to figure out where to go. If you want to continue the quest the proper way, you’re going to continue through the town to the north, where you can unlock a gate. If you want to follow what I did, which is wander aimlessly and fight some stuff along the way, feel free. The fights give you XP, which is what you want, so I don’t think it’s necessarily a bad thing to do. The next quest is a dungeon, which is a more difficult area with more enemies, so taking out some of the easier enemies outside the dungeon might be a good idea to get as much XP as you can.

Once you’re in the dungeon, you’ll explore and fight enemies as you go. The layout is confusing, so just wander around until you find a new area you can go in. Continue through the fights and you should unlock the quest in the middle of the dungeon somewhere. Be sure to check your progress as you go because the unlock might not pop up even though you have completed it.

That’s it for now. I’ll add any useful tips/comments that anyone else has to the post. Good luck!

I'm a mod on the sub. That guy always produces quality videos and guides really quickly without spamming

So I went back and went through my video, and from the beginning of the game to the first battle (where you get XP) is around 5 minutes. You get around 100 XP for that first fight. After this fight is when you unlock your first achievement. So if you wanted to repeat that first fight over and over, starting from scratch, you'd have to play the game ~150 times, at about 5 minutes/run, which would take you roughly 13 hours to do. While comical, this is very impractical, and if you don't want the achievement I would just skip the quest entirely.
