  1. According to the DD discord, Rogues Gallery is obtainable, it just requires defeating *every* boss in endless. I haven’t seen them all yet, but can anyone confirm this?

    • I got the achievement without seeing stuff like flesh or crew. you can try it . but might be an trol

  2. Lol wtf A Poor Harvest dont complete, all party dodge harvest 3 times but achievment not unlocked

  3. Just to clarify, Shards Well Spent does not require you to collect the Thing from the Stars achievement. Simply purchase every crystaline trinket from the Jeweler.

  4. “Rogues Gallery” was already fixed. Now you can encounter all 4 wondering bosses normally, Shambler, Shrieker, Thing From The Stars and the Collector.

  5. Thanks for the giude, really usefull, even if some achievments are that hard and random to get xd

  6. Some of the achievements doesnt work for me, I do as it is written, but nothing happens. Idk what to do, even those silly ones as dying with some particular trinkets. Game, pls
