SpellForce 3: Soul Harvest Achievement Guide 100%
As of at least 2023 every achievement can now be obtained. That being said it’s probably a bad idea to kill Reavers you haven’t gotten the quest for yet.
Introspection: finish the first dream
Occurs early in the story
General Aerev: Get promoted to General of the Wolf Guard.
Occurs after about doing a third of the game
An Ocean of Eventualities: Use a vinculum for the first time.
Gotten soon after getting to Cahlabrok.
Savior of Theresa’s Meadows: You won the battle for Theresa’s Meadows and put an end to the debacherous Oktoberfest rites.
Just play through the Oktoberfest scenario.
Strength in Numbers: Play the campaign in co-op mode.
Combat, equipment and skills
Circle Mage: Finish the Soul Harvest campaign on Circle Mage difficulty without lowering it once.
Self-explanatory. The key to dealing with the RTS-segments is quickly getting as close to the enemy base as possible and conquering sectors close to it first, preferably using your starting forces to destroy any of their early sectors. That will stop the enemy from expanding and forcing you to fight a protracted battle later on.
A Fresh Start: Use a potion to reset your skills and attributes.
You should find these during the campaign, but they can also be bought from merchants in King’s Vantage. Obviously you can reload once you’ve drunk the potion.
Specialist: Upgrade one of your abilities to the highest level.
Can be achieved with any character. Just advance any skill to level 3.
Beyond Human Limits
Raise an attribute above the natural maximum of 10.
Use attribute points to get one of your 5 attributes (strength, dexterity, intelligence, constitution, willpower) to 10 and equip an item giving at least a +1 in that attribute.
Memento: Upgrade your Empyrian trinket to its full potential.
Done while hunting for the essences of vengeful spirits.
The Avatar: Equip your avatar with an artefact item in every possible slot.
Probably not obtainable until close to the end, and might require you to use a potion of fresh start to redistribute potions. This is probably only obtainable if you chose the ring as your empyrean trinket. Other artefact-level items are the dragonbone gear from the Reavers quest, and the sigil of the nortandian traders guild. The trinker slot doesn’t matter. Not sure if a two-handed weapon works or if you need to dual wield or use one-handed + shield.
Master Trader: Earn gold by selling your unwanted loot.
Done cumulatively over your playthrough. You need to sell items enough to receive 100 000 gold. It doesn’t work if you simply trade for items, you need to receive gold for it to count. Since merchants quickly run out of stock I would suggest buying up stock to increase their gold, close the trade meny, then start it up again to sell things and get the gold back. You can save beforehand and reload several times to increase the counter.
Soldier: Kill enemies while playing the campaign.
Kill 50 enemies
Veteran: Kill enemies while playing the campaign.
Kill 100 enemies
Warlord: Kill enemies while playing the campaign.
Kill 1500 enemies. You’ll probably get this playing through the game normally without a need to grind
Novice Summoner: Summon creatures to aid you in battle.
Summon 50. Most likely this is going to be either skeletons from the necromancy tree, or demons from the demonology tree.
Experienced Summoner: Summon creatures to aid you in battle.
Master Summoner: Summon creatures to aid you in battle.
First Aid: Use your heroes’ abilities to heal the wounds of your allies.
2000 health points healed
Healer: Use your heroes’ abilities to heal the wounds of your allies.
10000 health points healed
Guardian Angel: Use your heroes’ abilities to heal the wounds of your allies.
50000 health points healed. Probably going to happen automatically as you play the game, unless it’s on easy.
Potato: Who needs graphics anyway?
Lower your graphics to the lowest possible. Will require changing resolution, all sliders, and pretty much all options – and restarting the game for the changes to take effect.
Hired Swords: Hire a new mercenary.
Can be done as soon as you reach Greykeep.
Treasure Hunt: Successfully open the combination lock on a treasure chest in Windwall Outskirts.
Done as part of a quest in Windwall Outskirts. You’ll need to defeat the bandits in the west to find the chest, and the bandits in the northeast to get the combination.
A Toast: Get drunk with Yria.
Have enough conversations with Yria after missions and you’ll eventually have the options of sharing a bottle. It’s available after recruiting Rerah.
Alas, Poor William: Force an innocent demon into indentured servitude.
When visiting Cahlabrok for the second time there will be a necromancer asking for your quick help with a ritual. Perform it correctly and the achievement unlocks.
A Date Gone Wrong: first dates can be a scary affair. As part of the hunt for Saorebh you’ll talk to a merchant, accept his task instead of paying him off. Then a bit later he’ll ask for help again with getting gifts. They are all obtainable in the lower area, or you can buy them from another merchant in Cahlabrok Once you’ve delivered them and reported to him, they’ll both go to the lower area. Make sure to buy anything you want from her since you’ll lose her as a merchant after this.
Diplomat: Successfully defuse a dangerous situation using nothing but words.
The earliest time to get this is in Cahlabrok. When confrontign the gang leader, successfully intimidate him to get this achievement.
Master of Subterfuge:Successfully impersonate an arrogant architect when entering Windholme.
Gotten by choosing the correct dialogue options when entering Windholme for the first time.
Orc Beater: Use all possible charms in the Blood Pit.
Very missable. When entering in the arena in the Crimson Mire, make sure to buy a bunch of the charms from the merchant and then using them inside the circles during the arena fights.
Diversity: Have all possible companions in your party at least once.
Your final companion is recruited after finishing the Crimson Mire. To get the achievement they must all have been in your party at some point, it’s not enough to meet them in Greykeep.
Titan Quest: Learn how to summon titans.
Gotten by finishing “A Noble Quest” given by a woman in the southern part of King’s Vantage once you’re done with about the first half of the game.
Riddle Master: Solve an ancient puzzle.
Solve the chest/light puzzle in the ancient hybernian temple. Use your vinculum to reveal the pressure plate necessary.
Hybernian Scholar: Read all the writings of the Hybernian scholar.
Hard to miss. Do the optional sidequest in the ancient hybernian temple and interact with the tears in the veil to reveal the three tomes, in the Narthex-area. After that you need to open each one for the achievement to unlock.
Ghostbuster: Destroy all vengeful spirits. The first spirit is found in the mine/temple in the Windwall Outskirts, and the last spirit is found in Leonidar Gorge. The only spirit that’s really missable is the one hidden behind the wall in the southeast corner of Silver Drift Hollow.
Archaeologist: Collect 30 Moonsilver shards.
Check a specific guide such as the Wiki for specific locations.
Dung Collector: Collect 30 crab dung.
If you’re picking up everything found in each area you visit, you should get to 30 when you’re done with the Crimson Mire. If not there’s a whole bunch in King’s Crossing
Wyvern-Forged: Complete all hunting quests for the smith in Windholme.
You’ll need to progress the story to get access to all of the quests. Last quest takes place in King’s Crossing, which happens before the last quest for the smith in Cahlabrok.
Big-Game Hunter: Complete all hunting quests for the smith in Cahlabrok
The quests won’t start until you’ve visited the Crimson Mire and found the smith. You’ll need to progress the story to get access to all of the quests. The last one takes place in the Old Monastery location, which is close to the endgame.
Bounty Hunter: Complete all WANTED poster missions from the blackboard in Greykeep.
Probably the one most likely to cause you trouble. You’ll get the missions periodically, the quest should update each time a new one is available from the noticeboard in King’s Vantage – usually by new areas becoming available when main quests or sidequests are started. The key to getting this achievement is always getting the noticeboard first, then killing the reaver, and then picking up the dragonbone weapon. The achievement will probably bug out if you go ahead and kill reavers before receiving their respective quests (the one in the Laranian Swamplands and the one hidden in Silver Drift Hollow are the ones most at risk of this). There are 10 reavers in total:
- *Scorching Desert. Actually killed by some other enemies, but you still need to complete the quest by picking up the dragonbone weapon for this to work. The key is on the mage in the western part of the actual oasis.
- *Howling Steppes. Pretty powerful so you might need your army for this.
- *The Eye.
- *The Amber Lake. The wanted notice might call it “the Coastal Ruins”
- *Crimson Mire.
- *Silver Drift Hollow.
- *Leonidar Gorge.
- *King’s Crossing.
- *Windwall cave. Hidden behind a veil tear wall.
- *Laranian Swamplands. Quest is given right near the end of the game.
Beyond the Veil: Find all fractures in the Veil and use the Vinculum on them.
See my separate guide for the locations.
World Eater: Cause all of Eo to be destroyed.
This is one of the two ending options. Get one and then reload to get the other.
The Greatest Sacrifice: Sacrifice yourself to the God of Light.This is the other of the two ending options. Get one and then reload to get the other.
