Note: After the day 2 patch, some story Achievements have been fixed to pop when completed, but I personally didn’t get them to pop after opening the game post patch. Should you have this issue from completing them before this patch,you can start a new file and chapter select to re do the chapters you didn’t get to pop your first playthrough. Or do another playthough, its a good game.

Upgrade your blade for the first time at Rimbal’s shop
First ones on the house, just talk to him as part of Chapter 2 quest line and you’ll get a free upgrade for your blade(a first for video game blacksmiths I do believe.)
Upgrade your blade further at Rimbal’s shop
Cant be done until the start of Chapter 3, and will set you back 100 money(beads?).
Perfect your blade at Rimbal’s shop
This one requires you to pay up another 100 beads and one bar of Salamander Steel. Spoiler for Steel location:Can be found in the Salamander Village by following the signs in The Swamp of Glune. Talk to the salamander in front of the furnace for a free bar of sweet salamander steel.
If you find yourself struggling with finding or solving the puzzles some are locked behind check this spoiler for some extra help: WIthin the forest on the way to Tennsfall you can find a frog who will mark the location of lilystones on your map. For help with Puzzles,in options there is a setting that will add gold signs near puzzles to give extra help in solving them, or just let your have them be auto solved which is very nice of them.
Within the Salamander town in The Swamp of Glune, convince the keep you are totally, 100% ready and capable of handling…whatever it is they are giving you. Once you get it, you’ll totally understand the hesitancy in entrusting it to just anyone.
Again within the Swamp on your way through, you’ll come to a room with a small purple rock looking item on the ground you can pick up. (Its not shown in the picture on the ground but its there I swear.)
near the beginning of the path to the training grounds you can find..a really big hole. What else would be in a really big hole but, a really big frog? This fella insist you bring him some worms if your going to just invite yourself into their home. These worms can be found from a very inconspicuous frog within the forest on your way to Tennsfall where you can get almost all of them for free, save the last one. Give him a honeydew drink and that last worm is yours. I, do not notice a difference between giving one and giving all as it seems giving one will check the box for the goal, but getting all of them does free our froggy friend from the burden of worm, so there’s that.
In the copper city there is a vendor selling 3 plushies for you to buy for decorating your house.
Once you find yourself here, why don’t you grab that long time friend?
