Dream Cycle: 100% Achievement Guide

Dream Cycle has released and with it came Steam achievements! An enjoyable distraction and something else to go for within the Dreamlands. I will update the guide as I continue to unlock achievements myself.

 

100% Achievement Guide

No True Death

Either make Morgan die using fall damage or climb inside the circular fiery pit within the Cavern of Flames.

Dream Warrior

Malleable Dreams
Recast an adventure
Go through the Deep Gate, the Map will open, hover on a location and you will have the option to start it or recast it, simply recast it.

The Sleeper Awakens
Free 30 trapped souls
Most adventures will end with ghostly apparitions, souls, that Morgan will talk to. At present, I believe that these are the souls need to be freed. You will unlock this achievement by completing adventures.

Thread the Needle
Critically Hit enemies 500 times
Critical Hits are done by holding your primary attack button with swords and releasing or by shooting the blue circles on enemies, this can include stealth kills and during combat; as long as the reticule becomes four red arrows pointing inwards – it will count.

Magi of the First Order
Learn 8 Spells
Spells are either unlocked by purchasing them from the Vending Machine or are a reward from adventures. You will unlock this achievement by completing adventures.

Seek and You Shall Find
Find 25 hidden chests

Cartographer
Discover 5 maps
Maps are either unlocked by purchasing them from the vending machine and are a reward from adventures. You will unlock this achievement by completing adventures.

Avid Reader
Completed 4 story books
Scattered throughout adventures are random books which are usually named after Lovecraft works and offer lore to the story, you unlock one part of a story per book you find. You will unlock this achievement by completing adventures.

Force User
Kill 20 enemies with telekinesis
So long as you do not have a secondary weapon equipped – ranged weapons, Morgan can use telekinesis. Hold your aim button and aim, upon pressing your fire weapon button, Morgan will throw rocks. An easy method is to just aim towards this achievement – critical hits with telekinesis are usually one hit kills.

One Soul
Finish an adventure without using Astral Projection
This can be difficult but again, you’ll have to aim towards this achievement. All depends on the world generation of the adventure, placement of levers, keys etc.
I got this thankfully because a dungeon door just needed a trap disarmed before I could enter.

Untouchable
Finish an adventure without taking any damage
Enemies should be avoided, use spells such as Charm, Invisibility and Shadow Step to bypass encounters. It can be difficult as most adventures will end in a boss/Eidolon encounter but some can end in an ambush –

I got this in a Ghoul adventure, at the end I was ambushed by around 20 Feral Ghouls, by flying around and using an SMG I managed to gun them all down without being hit.

As you progress throughout the Dream Cycle adventure you will level up and unlock new and stronger spells which will make achievement hunting and gameplay all the more enjoyable, easier and attuned to your own gameplay style and preferences.

Big Spender
Buy items for 10,000 gold
This will obviously unlock the more things you buy.

Delver of Mysteries
Finish 1 anomaly story
Adept of Mysteries
Finish 3 anomaly stories
Mechanical balls, phone boxes, arches

Blur
Finish 1 level under the par time
Speed Runner
Finish 5 levels under the par time
The par time is usually 10-20 minutes, just aim for this achievement, play fast, skip encounters, avoid enemies and you will easily unlock this.

I usually finish on par and that’s even with some difficult platforming and encounters! Good luck!

Shadow Mage
Finish 1 level without being detected
Ghost
Finish 5 levels without being detected

Largely the same requirements as the Untouchable achievement.

The detection arc is a white circular shape when you are nearby enemies, so long as this does not turn red you will remain undetected.

Enemies can be avoided, use spells such as Charm, Invisibility and Shadow Step to bypass encounters.

This can be difficult as most adventures will end in a boss/Eidolon encounter but some can end in an ambush, as long as you deal with all nearby enemies as to not alert and be detected by them this should be the best opportunity you have at this achievement.

As you progress throughout the Dream Cycle adventure you will level up and unlock new and stronger spells which will make achievement hunting and gameplay all the more enjoyable, easier and attuned to your own gameplay style and preferences.

Also, very important to remember the final boss/Eidolon fight and ambushes DO NOT COUNT AS BEING DETECTED! These are unavoidable situations and the game will not punish you with a Detection state.


You can keep track of your adventure stats by pressing Tab/View button/Touchpad(?), which includes the Detection state.
