All you need to know about the achievements you can get in Eden Rising.
Perfection time, difficulty, DLC, shameless self advertisement
The game isn’t hard to perfect, i would give it a 4/10.
It is not difficult, it is only time consuming. You need farm/grind a lot. Actually, only the last achievement is the painfull one. While i not perfected the game, only 24/26 for now, will be 25/26 soon, but i don’t want to double my playtime to get the last one, where you need to unlock all monster cores.
Please keep in mind you can keep playing your save once killed the main enemy of the game, it not having a “The End”. This means that the game don’t have any “missable” achievement.
Expected achievement perfection time: ~100h
The game is free but the content you can experience is limited. If you play it in solo. HOWEVER you can join to players who own ascendant edition DLC and so you can literally get all achievement and see all the content with your free copy. It is definetly harder that way (they might kick you, not allow free edition players to their game, etc), but it is possible.
If the guide helped you in any way then please respect my time spent/work on it and follow my curator:
The curator group dont mark any game as recommended so it shows useful information about achievements on the store page of the games without influencing the main store page of steam with recommendations + all games sorted to lists based on expected completion times. No point not to follow!:-)
Eventually please subscribe to my YouTube channel, like and run the video included in this guide. Thanks
I explain the features of the game in this video. Sorry if my english is not perfect, please let me know how understandable is it. The video also shows a fight against the hardest boss enemy and the very last Tower Defense fight, so it might worth to watch if you will have issues with those fights. Bookmarks for these parts are listed at the related achievements.
THE VIDEO WILL BE ADDED ONLY AT 26TH SUNDAY, SORRY, THE COMMENTS SECTION OF THE VIDEO ON YOUTUBE WILL HAVE A STEAMGIFT INVITE ONLY LINK WHICH WILL GIVE YOU A CHANCE TO WIN ONE OF THE THREE ASCENDANT EDITION DLC I GIVING AWAY.

If you kill a monster you get exp for it but those exp goes to bestiary, it literally unlock the knowledge about that monster.

-Monsters gives different exp based on their rarity and danger level.

If you own the Crystal Weapon DLC then you actually need to unlock 9 less than all, so this way you can skip some weapons with annoying and hard to get crafting materials. But if you go for all core achievement (GL WITH IT LOL) then you will have all weapons unlocked anyway.

Secret achievement, and it is currently not working according to some moderator on Eden Rising discord channel. My guess is, that this is for killing the Irradiated Chimera (same location as Isolation Chamber lore object). According to discord it will be fixed “VERY SOON” so if you manage to get it please let us know via comments here and leave some information about it if it is wasn’t for the Irradiated Chimera. Thanks
