Introduction:

Welcome to the Ravensword: Shadowlands Trophy Guide!
This game is developed by Crescent Moon Games and published on consoles by Ratalaika Games.

Roadmap:

Before starting the game, head into the “Option” section and decrease the difficulty to the minimum.
Also, if you want to complete the game in a single step, please refer to the trophy walkthrough in the specific section below.

Step 1: Complete the Main Quest
During this step, focus on completing the Main Quest of the game which is the longest part of this game. 
This quest is composed of 23 parts in total which will take you around the whole map of the game. Each area has its own enemies and some of them are related to trophies so be sure to always kill them all for increasing your skills and level.
Once you have completed the Main Quest, you will have a complete free-roam section where you can clean up the remaining trophies. 

At the end of this step, you will for sure get this trophy:
Kill Ul ‘Thok

Step 2: Side Quests and Miscellaneous trophies
You can use this step to clean up what you have missed during your first journey.
After completing the main quest, you are free to wander around the whole map of the game to complete side quests and continue your adventure.

At the end of this step, you will for sure get this trophy:
Boar Hunter
Goblin Master
Orc Master
Troll Slayer
Demon Slayer
Yeti Brutalizer
Carnosaur King
Jail Time
Missing Shipment
Trouble in Aven
Assist Rebecca
Platinum Ravensword

Tips and Strategies:

  • Save the game frequently as you can get easily killed and the game can also crash while loading for a new area;
  • ALWAYS bring with you some food supplies as you will automatically eat during your journey and if you run out, you will get hungry or worse starving. These stats will give respectively a 50% and a 90% debuff on health and stamina regeneration;
  • The RPG component can make the difference in the difficulty so be careful to spend all the attribute and talent points on what suits your game style at the most;
  • Remember that the combat system of this game is awful so if you want to get rid of this issue, it’s better to focus on ranged weapons and spend all the ability and talent points on the ranged related skills;
  • Stealth attacks add 100% bonus damage to your attacks and there is the “Silent Hunter” talent that gives you another 100% bonus damage at max rank which is very useful if you use bows or crossbows.
  • ALWAYS pillage bodies and break crates or barrels to earn as much money as you can. Everything in this game is expensive so you will need tons of coins to buy things. A good guide that shows easy methods to farm gold can be found here (Thanks to Dijon Sennep);
    To speed up your wandering across the big lands, you can get a horse early in the game: Head to North Aven and leave the city from the northern gate. Now keep heading NW until you see a farm. Trade with Hans to get a horse or a steed whistle for 1500/2500 coins. Also, you can level up the “Riding” talent which increases the speed movement while riding a mount.
    However, if you want to save money, you can level up the “Quickness” talent to run faster and you will get a mount during the main quest;
  • It’s recommended to press to show a little map while wandering around to check new locations;
  • A map can also be consulted under the “Map” section of the in-game menu and you can fast-travel by clicking on the names of the bigger areas.
