    August Achievement Adventure

    Post by Facial La Fleur on Sun Jul 09, 2017 12:29 pm

    I've been out of the achievement hunting game for the better part of 2017. I've only really put any serious effort into Clicker Heroes and The Elder Scrolls Online (literally thousands of hours between the two), World of Van Helsing: Deathtrap (had it completed until this recent title update), Fallout Shelter and Alto's Adventure (both completed, never to be heard from again). During my free 14 day trial of the XBOX Games Pass I started and completed The Golf Club and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, but not much else going on for this tired old achievement whore, in part due to my overwhelmingly huge backlog.

    Rather than list everything I have, I'm going to focus on this one month at a time in an attempt to avoid feeling overwhelmed and ultimately giving up again. My goal for August will be to free up some space on my XBOX One HDD by completing a few things that are already installed and, for the hell of it, a Windows Phone game

    Here's what I got...  

    Clicker Heroes++ 10 of 12 achievements++ 650g of 1000g
    Life is Strange++ 24 of 60 achievements++ 400g of 1000g
    LIMBO++ 12 of 13 achievements++ 900g of 1000g
    Murdered: Soul Suspect++ 03 of 48 achievements++ 45g of 1000g
    Project Spark++ 147 of 148 achievements++ 2285g of 3000g
    Tiki Taki Soccer (WP) ++ 08 of 10 achievements++ 160g of 200g
    Unravel++ 01 of 26 achievements++ 20g of 1000g
    The Walking Dead (Season One)++ 24 of 48 achievements++ 500g of 1000g
    World of Van Helsing: Deathtrap++ 50 of 55 achievements++ 1000g of 1250g


    August Stats

    Games Listed: 9
    Games Completed: 0
    Achievements Attempting: 141
    Achievements Earned: 0
    Gamerscore Available: 3790g
    Gamerscore Earned: 0g
    Starting Completion: 75.70%
    Ending Completion: ??.??%



    This would seem fairly reasonable, but I don't know if I have it in me anymore. We shall see! Wink

    I recently just start playing Clicker Heroes and while I don't think I have the overall best strategy for it, it's been consuming most of my SP gaming time. I'm going to take a step back and basically play it idle and just log on every once in awhile to upgrade my Heroes and then move on. I have a couple of those games you mentioned but every time I attempt to make a plan for myself I tend to get side-tracked.

    I've felt that way about my backlog and with the recent addition of Gamepass I've been holding back on purchasing games for now. I've completed Brothers, Soul Calibur, Virtual Fighter, Sam & Max: Beyond Time & Space, Golden Axe, Dig Dug, Pack Man and will be working onf The Swapper and Resident Evil 0 in the somewhat near future.

    Yeah, between XBOX Game Pass, EA Access, and Games with Gold, there's really no need to buy new releases anymore. My wallet will be very glad when I stop buying games.

    I've basically decided to only buy a game if it comes in under $5 which really hurt me during the backwards compatibility sale. It's all good though. Smile

    My willingness to buy ANYTHING under 5 bucks is why my backlog is so huge. Don't even get me started on Steam. I rarely play on PC and yet I still buy all the cheap games. Laughing

    Kinda cheating and getting a head start on this. Here's the new table with improvements in green.  

    Clicker Heroes++ 11 of 12 achievements++ 800g of 1000g
    Life is Strange++ 24 of 60 achievements++ 400g of 1000g
    LIMBO++ 12 of 13 achievements++ 900g of 1000g
    Murdered: Soul Suspect++ 03 of 48 achievements++ 45g of 1000g
    Project Spark++ 147 of 148 achievements++ 2285g of 3000g
    Tiki Taki Soccer (WP) COMPLETE ++ 10 of 10 achievements++ 200g of 200g
    Unravel++ 01 of 26 achievements++ 20g of 1000g
    The Walking Dead (Season One)++ 24 of 48 achievements++ 500g of 1000g
    World of Van Helsing: Deathtrap++ 54 of 55 achievements++ 1200g of 1250g


    August Stats

    Games Listed: 9
    Games Completed: 1
    Achievements Attempting: 141
    Achievements Earned: 7
    Gamerscore Available: 3790g
    Gamerscore Earned: 390g
    Starting Completion: 75.70%
    Ending Completion: ??.??%  

    I've earned achievements in other games not listed here but haven't started anything new, so my completion percentage should only be going up. The TA Playlist for August is Life is Strange, so I'll definitely be going for that completion.

    Nice job on Clicker Heroes! So you must only need the one for reaching level 3600? I'm on my 3rd transention and it's taking forever to level up because I need a ton of hero souls per Ancient Soul... I think I'm doing something wrong though because it seems quite grindy now. How are you leveling your Ancient Souls After transending?

    For my Ancients, they look like this after 3 transcensions...

    Borb (Level 1) +10% maximum transcendent primal soul reward
    Xyliqil (Level 15) +1500% effectiveness of all idle bonuses
    Phandoryss (Level 4) +0.2% Transcendent power
    Chor'gorloth (Level 0) -0% Ancient cost
    Ponyboy (Level 15) +1500% effectiveness of Solomon

    After you transend what is your focus for ancients and then how do you normally level them up? I'm on my 4th ascension and I need like 58,000k per Ancient Soul so I've been leveling Solomon up quite a bit so I'm harvesting more Hero Souls but it's getting painfully slow. Razz

    You want to focus on Solomon, Siyalatas, and Libertas until they are leveled relatively high. Once you've earning so many Hero Souls though, you can start investing in some of the other non-active Ancients.

    This is what I have for my Ancients after about 20 ascensions inside my third transcension...

    Argaiv (Lvl 10,001) +20002% Gilded Damage per Gild
    Atman (Lvl 20) +17.17% chance of Primal Bosses
    Bubos (Lvl 20) -16.48% Boss Life
    Chronos (Lvl 25) +17.40 seconds to Boss timer
    Dogcog (Lvl 25) -22.22% Hiring cost
    Dora (Lvl 20) +388.18% more Treasure Chests
    Fortuna (Lvl 20) +4.87% Chance of 10x gold
    Libertas (Lvl 10,000) +2.40e6% Gold when idle
    Mammon (Lvl 10,000) +50000% Gold dropped
    Mimzee (Lvl 10,000) +5e5% Gold from Chests
    Morgulis (Lvl 80,000K) +8.80e8% Hero Soul DPS
    Siyalatas (Lvl 10,000) +2.40e6% Idle DPS
    Solomon (Lvl 5,000) +83209.93% Primal Hero Souls

    There's probably better strategies than what I'm doing, I'm just kinda winging it. Not in a hurry to finish it as long as I do this month.

    Yeah, I'm thinking I need to focus more on Solomon, Siyalatas and Libertas... mine are under-leveled... I'll have to fix that this evening. Wink

    How about a mid-month update? I've actually not been focusing on this as much as I had planned because it's taken quite a bit of work to remain in this years Leap Frog contest on TA and will only get more difficult as we get deeper into it. My main goal is to finish in the top 100 participants and there are presently about 350 of us left. On average, about 40 people 'croak' each day, so I just need to hang in there for another 4-6 days. Once we need 4+ of the higher ratio achievements, most people won't be able to meet the requirements, but my path is pretty laid out well into the 8.0 and above ratio rang, so it shouldn't be a problem for me.

    Aside from Leap Frog, I did play one episode of Life is Strange for the TA Playlist this month and am hoping to finish up the two I have left this coming week. I played a ton more Clicker Heroes, and it's actually finished but waiting until the 6.0 ratio day to load the game and pop my last achievement in it.

    Here's the new table with improvements in green.  

    Clicker Heroes++ 11 of 12 achievements++ 800g of 1000g
    Life is Strange++ 36 of 60 achievements++ 600g of 1000g
    LIMBO++ 12 of 13 achievements++ 900g of 1000g
    Murdered: Soul Suspect++ 03 of 48 achievements++ 45g of 1000g
    Project Spark++ 147 of 148 achievements++ 2285g of 3000g
    Tiki Taki Soccer (WP) COMPLETE ++ 10 of 10 achievements++ 200g of 200g
    Unravel++ 01 of 26 achievements++ 20g of 1000g
    The Walking Dead (Season One)++ 24 of 48 achievements++ 500g of 1000g
    World of Van Helsing: Deathtrap COMPLETE++ 55 of 55 achievements++ 1250g of 1250g
