How a Retired Strategist Saved the Country: Achievement Guide 100%

This guide lists all the achievement for [How a Retired Strategist Saved the Country], as well as how to achieve them. Please note that this is still a work in progress. Eventually, I would like to make a quick guide for the more difficult achievements.

 

A. Unmissable Achievements

These achievements can be done just by playing and completing the game. The descriptions are self-explanatory.


 

1. The First Step

Construct a building for the first time

2. Victory!

Emerge victorious in battle

Enjoy your first H in the game 😉

3. Elf Savior

Clear stage 1

4. Friend of the Beastmen

Clear stage 2

5. Nation of Magic!

Clear stage 3

6. Do You Like Swords?

Clear stage 4

7. Catastrophe in Heaven

Clear stage 5

8. Closed the Otherworldly Gate

Clear stage 6

9. And Then We Had Peace

Clear story mode

B. Gameplay Achievements

You can get these achievements naturally when you are using specific builds to clear a stage. This section is still 50% complete. More details with screenshots coming later on.

10. Forest Wise Man

Have at least 20 Sages during a battle

11. Steel Scrum

Have at least 100 Steel Gear Soldiers during a battle

The material costs are 16000 Food, 2000 Steel, and enough housing for everyone.

12. Magic Researcher

Use magic research to strengthen your Magicians to +35

13. Fortress City

Have at least 3,000 Defense from Forts alone

With the Defense of Fortsx1.5 researched, build Forts with an accumulative level of 100. You will need at least 4 Forts, which can only be achieved by using Fort Authorizations.

14. Rain of Arrows

Raise your First Strike to at least 10,000

Requires around 300 Archers, or in this case… 138 Falconet Cannons. Just remember to upgrade your Laboratories and Hero’s Tower if you have it.

15. Mega-Nation

Have at least 100,000 Military during a battle

One easy way to achieve this is by recruiting 500-700 Steel Gear Soldiers with the Military of Steel Gear Soldiers x1.5 and Military of all soldiers x1.2 researched. Try using Final battle preparations during the final defense if you don’t have enough Population.

16. Unscathed

Reach year 3 without losing any soldiers

Make use of Forts and/or Archers and don’t let anyone get killed until you reach Day 0 Year 3. You can complete this achievement as early as Stage 2 (Beastmen).

17. Tons of Tea

Produce 10,000 Tea during a single battle

C. Challenging Achievements

These achievements will be quite a challenge if you are someone like me who doesn’t play strategy games that much. I intend to make a basic guide that anyone can follow, so please leave some comments if you are interested.

C-1. Difficulty B

18. Phenomenal Strategist

Clear the game on Difficulty B without carrying over battle points or using the otherworldly castle

Note: Don’t do any free battles in your playthrough just to be on the safe side. You can still do it from the title screen if you want to try things out.

20. Genius Strategist

Clear a Free Battle with seed ”569216014”, skill points,set to 26, enemy strength 400%, Combat length: Long, and no otherworldly castle

Free Battles can be accessed from the title screen. Make sure to set the skill points to 26, enemy strength to 400%, and combat length to Long. Also, remember to tick the Double max level for buildings to increase the buildings level cap to Lv.40. You can find a detailed list of the building costs in my other guide.

The first achievement has no restrictions on how to allocate your available skill points. It is recommended to use one of the five builds from the next achievements since they will count to this achievement as well.

Tips: If you have 170000 Military in your reserves, you can attack Hostile nation as soon as they spawn to win instantly.

21.Master of the Sword

Clear a Free Battle with seed ”569216014”, skill points,set to 26, enemy strength 400%, Combat length: Long, Iron Workshop Lv4, and no otherworldly castle

My recommendation Iron Workshop Lv.4 build is to take Improved Mine Lv.2 and Mobile Fort Lv.1 from the Fortress City skill tree. The main reason being that they increase the Falconet Cannons‘ Military quite considerably. I used 1 SP to get an extra Research and 3 SP for Wood Production Up to help speed things up in the starting phase.


22. Harnesser of Forest Power

Clear a Free Battle with seed ”569216014”, skill points,set to 26, enemy strength 400%, Combat length: Long, Forest Sage Lv4, and no otherworldly castle


23. Master of Magic

Clear a Free Battle with seed ”569216014”, skill points,set to 26, enemy strength 400%, Combat length: Long, Magic Laboratory Lv4, and no otherworldly castle


24. Builder of a Fortress Nation
