It is a guide to all achievements (storyline, unmissable, and more) in Drake Hollow.
Guide to All Achievements
Ignored the Call
Ignore the call for help, and return to your normal life.
At the start of the game don’t enter the “gate” once talked with the bird, just turn back and run back. Game over, but this unlock the achievement.
Complete a full playthrough of the campaign without dying.
As there is manual saves existing you can just load your previous one if you dieing and get this achievement upon completing the game. Just don’t forget to reload your game every time you died.
You need to get all notes in a single playthrough.
- Lore Hobbist – Find 10 notes
- Lore Librarian – Find 20 notes.
- Lore Doctor – Find all notes.
Not sure if anyone ever will get the all note achievement. Map randomized, notes could be on any island. Map shows how many you could find on an island but on a chapter 3 island i found already 2 while map showed only 1, so it could be easy to miss this achievement as there could be notes on islands which not shown or even a note which note shows up because of some bugs. Hopefully these will be fixed once, I still not going to get my perfect game on this as I not going to replay a full game for this.
Storyline or Theoretically Unmissable Achievements
Witch Hunter Hunter
Defeat a Terminer in combat
Unmissable as you will get to this point sooner or later when progressing on main quests
Travel to Chapter 2: The Summer
All Hallows’ Eve
Travel to Chapter 3: The Fall.
Travel to Chapter 4: The Winter.
Attain Camp Level 10.
Just upgrade your Drakes until your camp is level 10. Part of the main quest so it is a unmissable storyline achievement.
Defeat the Lord of the Terminer, magistrate of the Court.
Return home after completing your quest.
Build 100 waypoints
You will unlock this achievement easily around halfway to the end. If not just place a waypoint, dismantle, and place it again until earned.
Build 100 Improvements.
Build 100 improvements in your base, don’t need to be done in a single campaign, but it is very unlikely that you will get to the end of the campaign without earning this.
Railgrind for 50 km.
The light speedway for “fast travel” between waypoints is the rail. It is very unlikely you will finish a single complete campaign without completing it and there is a global character value for this, so you dont even need to do it on a single playthrough.
Titan of Industry
Exceed 40 production a day in Entertainment, Food, and Water.
Quests will ask you higher and higher camp level as you progress through chapters. Camp level earned by having Drakes and you will get to a point when you need to produce enough resources for this achievement just by keeping alive the Drakes.
Achievements Related to Drakes and Their Buffs
Advance a Drake to retirement.
Keep upgrading a Drake. The next rank after Elder is retirement. The Drake will turn to stone, he will still contribute the exp to the camp level exp but no longer consuming resources. You can still pick up the buff of the Drake but interacting with the stoned Drake.
Find and rescue 100 Drakes.
Just rescue 100 Drakes. Once you retired 2 Drakes you can save 4 new one right next to your camp. Save your game, save them, reload your games and you can easily get to 100. Please keep in mind if you have new saveable Drakes there they will vanish if you move to a new chapter.
Collect ’em All
Rescue one Drake of every type.
I have no clue how to unlock this. It unlocked to me when my camp reached level 12 while i was saving a Drake but i seen that Drake with that ability in past. It is also clear, that it is not unlocked while having all different Drakes with all different buffs at the same time, as i not had all when unlocked this achievement so the only thing i can think about that it somehow unlocked by the lvl 12 camp level. Please share in comments when it was unlocked so could have more information.
Hit 5 enemies with a single electric melee attack.
First of all you need a drake which add electrical damage to your attack. Once you have one, claim that buff and damage 5 enemies with one attack. It is doable at an ambush easily. If you have difficulties to find the required Drake, then just find a Drake need to be saved, save your game and keep reloading until you get the required Drake.
Scare 100 enemies with Bees.
One of the Drake have a “beekeeper” ability. If you have such a Drake and you claim his/her buff, then your melee weapons make enemies feared. Hit 100 enemies with melee weapon while this buff is active for this achievement.
Light 100 enemies on fire.
One of obtainable Drake has a Blazing buff. If claimed, you attacks do fire dmg. Attack 100 enemies with a melee weapon while this buff is claimed to unlock the achievement.
Ride the Lightning
Hit an enemy with an electrified Electric Guitar.
One of the Drake has a buff which adds electrical damage to melee attacks. Attack an enemy with a guitar while you claimed that buff.
Kill an enemy using only your fists.
Suggested to do this as soon as possible as your fists doing only 1-2 dmg so you want to do this at the beginning on a low level monster.
Kill a Fang with its own projectile
Houndlike enemies and they usually attack you with a ranged projectile. With a timed attack using your melee weapon you can send it back. If it kills the Fang then achievement unlocks.
Send over 1000 materials to camp.
You need to build up a waypoint channel for easier traveling. There are some VANs on many islands. Connecting these to your waypoint “speedway” will loot up the materials from the VAN. Achievement unlocks once 1000 collected from these cars.
Connect one of each type of supply truck to camp
Like logistican, but instead of amount, you need to connect eahy type of resource VAN to your camp at least once.
Trade 500 shiny objects with Magpie
You actually need to sell items for the value of 500 currency
Fall continuously for 3 seconds
Go to the top of a high point, I went to the top of a lighthouse. You will need a levitation charm to get up to there. Then place a levitation charm up there too. Change the angle, save and launch yourself. It should award the achievement.
Heal a wounded drake
If a drake is losing health then interact with him/her and select the healing option. They go underground when a raid starts so an easy way to get this achievement is if you interact with one when the raid starts and stop the interaction once the drake is damaged. After the raid now you can help up the damaged drake.
Clear all corruption vines and nests on a single island
Clear all the vines on an island. You will get this achievement easily while playing the game.
Send Weepy Eeeking to cry in the dirt
During Spring season there is an island with a cave and there is a shadow, visible on the picture. Keep talking with him/her until he/she depops, which unlocks the achievement.
Defeat all enemies in an ambush while taking no damage
At the Spring-bank location there is one ambush location. Once the enemies pop, just jump back to the wooden “bridge”, enemies not going to jump up to there and you can finish them off with your ranged weapon. Start with the ranged enemy if there is any around for you. Save before so you can reload in case you fail with it.
Discover every islands in a biome
Just go to every location/island on a biome (whole map during one season)
Clear all corruption vines and nests in an entire biome.
Same as the Groundskeeper achievement, but this time you need to kill all vines on every single island. You can move to next chapter before visiting all islands so this is missable.
Defeat a raid at camp level 7 or higher without any Improvements taking damage.
Build decoys around your camp in a circle and beat the raid. I done about 12 and was enough to kill all incoming monsters while most of the decoy was still alive. You can leave the decoys there for future raids as you want to finish Trickster achievement too.
Fool 50 enemies with Decoys.
Use decoys so enemies will attack them instead of you. Decoys also useful to get Untouchable achievement.
Kill an enemy with a defensive Improvement.
Build a defensive structure and let it kill one enemy. Hint: They have very low health points, make sure you protect it with some fences.
Hit 5 enemies with a Proximity Mine.
Place the mine to an ambush position and you will get this achievement. Save before so you can repeat and adjust the position of the mine where at least 5+ monsters will show up. The ground floor of the factory ambush location is where i done this.
Craft one of each type of Curio.
Just craft each consumable item at the Curio workshop at least once.
Defeat a raid using only defensive Improvements.
Once you retired 1 or 2 Drakes you will have enough extra building points you can use for defensive buildings instead of using all on entertainment, food and water. Just build some solar panels and tesla towers, in a circle around your camp and from that point your camp is defended automatically and you dont need to return to handle the defense by yourself. Please don’t forget to build walls too, so enemies can’t destroy your tesla coils. Walls can resist a lot of damage, tesla coils can’t.
Man in Motion
Clear 10 corruption vines with a single use of St. Elmo’s Fire.
St. Elmo’s Fire is a consumable item which could be crafted. It kills a vine and when there is another one within range then it jump to the next one. To be able to kill 10 with this item you need an island with a lot of vines, preferably a small island. The quest island where you need to find a note during summer is a perfect location for this achievement if you manage to get all crafting material for this item as one of the material quite rare and 3 required. Don’t forget to save your game before using the item in case you kill less than 10.
Hit 5 enemies with a single ground pound attack.
Ground pound attack: Jump and use the attack in the air. This achievement doable easily at an ambush location, Just place a decoy and execute the attack once 5 enemies hitting the decoy.
Use Raid Bait to draw out 100 enemies.
Raid Bait is a consumable, craftable item. If you use it there will be an extra raid. About 9-10 required for the achievement, but it not required to be done in a single playthrough. You can even use one and once the raid beaten just reload and repeat until achievement earned.
Kill an enemy over 100 meters away using an arrow.
This is the hardest achievement. About 100 meters is the visiblity range so you need to kill one enemy from the max visiblity range and enemies constantly moving.
Using only the Aluminum Slugger, defeat an ambush on a baseball diamond.
One of the island has a baseball playground. There is always an ambush there. Beat that ambush while damaging enemies only with the aluminum Slugger. I seen baseball playground only during the Spring chapter. If you not found the required melee weapon yet, then you can wait for 2 raids at your camps, dont open the lootchest of the first raid. Save your game and open/reload until you get the required weapon. It is not a problem if you triggered the ambush there already. It will happen again once a few days passed.
Ghostride the Light
Railgrind continuously for 10 km as a ghost.
Do a circular waypoint travel, save your game, then die, jump on the speedway and leave your game active. You can alt+tab if you playing with borderless fullscreen mode. Make sure you leave it running for a good time, 20-30 mins without pushing W for faster traveling as achievement unlocks only if you had 10km AND you left the speedway. Once done don’t forget to load your save game before your death so you can still go for the nodeath full run achievement.
Revive a fellow player.
You need one player for this, Just revive your coop partner.
Protect 3 other players with a single Aether Ward.
This could be a hard achievement as you need to find 3 other players for it. Once you have a team of 4 it is quite easy tho.
