  • Colorful Corpse – Die with Rainbow Socks equipped
  • Poor Choices – Killed by equipping items

You can easily achieve this by equiping a health reducing item after using the Fountain of Life until you have one max HP left or after equiping Restrained Heart.

Kill Related

Show those monsters what you’re made of! Rampage and kill, and get achievements while you’re at it!

Natural progression

  • Defeat The Dark – Kill 100 creatures
  • Destroy Your Fears – Kill 1000 creatures
  • C-C-Combo – Kill multiple creatures in a single turn 50 times

There are many ways to obtain this, mainly thanks to exploding enemies. You can also use various Area of Effect (AOE) items like Light Caller, a spirit-based build or splash damage items.

  • The Bestiary – Kill 20 different types of creatures in a single game

You should have no issue getting this, but if for some reason you struggle with it, use evolving/devolving items like Dark Influence or Transformer

  • No Mercy – Reach Depth 12 having killed all creatures on the way

This may appear as a straight forward challenge, but there are actually some things to keep in mind. To maximise your chances, try to enter as few additional rooms as possible, especially the ones with big semi-boss units. You really want to find the Dark for Days event since it allows you to skip on a bunch of units at once.

Specific enemies

  • What’s Yours Is Mine – Kill 20 Scroungers

Since you should kill them anyways any time you see them due to their great loot, there should be no issue here.

  • Shootout – Kill a Bilebag from a distance

Use splash damage, poison (Plague is great at it) or explosions. If you are on a high defense build, you can also grab some damage on parry equipment like Spike Suit.

  • Chain Reaction – Have 5 creatures explode in one turn

For this achievement, using the Detonation Scroll makes life really easy. Insanity Stone helps a lot, but going in a Instability event can also do the trick.

  • All Consuming – Kill a Wretched Amalgam that has 50+ max health

Now for the big boys! The strategy for killing a big Amalgam is the same as for the Shrieker (next achievement). You can either get a really good run, or you can go the cheesy way : grab a Soul Spill Scroll, stock up on a truck load of souls, and get to a stage where an amalgam is present. Wait for him to consume enough units to be over 50 max health (if it takes explosion damage it will still be ok), release the ghosts of all your previous kills and you did it!

  • Don’t Ignore Me! – Kill a Shrieker

This one is somewhat easier than the Amalgam, since the Shrieker will kill off his allies by himself. Wait for the total health of the stage to be below your soul count and use your Soul Spill Scroll!

  • Overthrown – Kill the Owl in Hard Difficulty

The hard part…

Do you really want your 100% completion? Because it will cost you your soul… To obtain the next two achievements, you will need to put an end to the existence of purity incarnate…

  • Goodbye, Frog Friend – Kill a cute, harmless frog

Found in the Companions room, or when Transformer is used, it is really easy to kill, if you have the mental strength to do it.

  • Heartless – Kill a Pupper

In the same fashion, Puppers are found in the Companions room, or with the use of Hand of Dog (keep in mind that you need to somehow remove the glove to kill it).

Stats Related

In this section, we will address the hardest part of Ring of Pain’s achievements : stat-based ones. The 60+ ones are especially tough, since you need a good dose of luck to have a shot at them. Finding an early Bone Pearls makes it easier with a steady stream of stats upgrade, and using the Final Form Scroll can push your build over the edge if you’re missing 10 or less stats.

Huge stats

  • Willing the World – Have 60+ Clarity

The easier one of the 60+ family. The game has two items doubling clarity (Skirt of Vision and Crown of Clarity), so getting to the boss with them equipped should be enough.

  • Berzerker – Have 60+ Attack (The Crow / Choker /strength leech)

Not quite as easy as Willing the World, this achievement is still manageable thanks to The Crow and Choker. If you manage to not move from your spot and repeatedly hit foes, reaching 60 Attack should not take long.

  • Juggernaut – Have 60+ Defense (stacked plate / immovable object / brittle seed)

Like the previous achievement, you can reach 60+ Defense by turtling up with Immovable Object or you can try not cheesing it by having a very strong Defense build in addition to Stacked Plate

  • Predator – Have 60+ Speed

This achievement, I swear to god. There are no speed scaling items, nothing. You better bet on a ridiculously lucky run for you to get this. If you managed to get it another way, I’m curious to hear about it in the comments.

  • Gigantic – Have 100+ max Health (giants wrap early / timeless /gorging mask)

Ok now that’s something manageable. You can cheese this by getting an early Giants Wrap in combination with any low timer spell, Timeless being the absolute MVP, netting you +1 Max HP per turn. Gorging Mask can also be of help to an extent but you would need a strong healing source like Hungry Sun for it to activate each time.

  • Save Our Souls – Have 500+ Souls

You get a lot, and I mean a lot, of souls during the four stages of the dark ending. So dont really bother with your count until then, and buy good items for you to survive the boss gauntlet. High Clarity gives you a lot of bonus souls, making this even easier.

Tiny stats

  • Flesh Wound – Go from full Health to 1 Health in a single turn (get the heart jar)

Trivial achievement: just get the Restrained Heart and you’re done! It will drop you straight to one HP, just remember to fully heal beforehand.

  • Fragile Mortality – Reduce your max health to 1 with the Fountain of Life

Spam click that shrine!

Reaching the Boss

  • Well Prepared – Reach the boss on maximum health

The easiest way is to keep a Full Heal Scroll in your pocket and to use it just before the boss stage. Finding a Fountain of Life or any other healing event just before is also an option.

  • Hanging On – Reach the boss with 20% or less health

This one is very organic, let the enemies hit you a bunch on the last floor, but take care to not die in the process of it.

Specific Actions

Finaly, here are all the achievements that didn’t really fit in the last categories. They often require you to go out of your way to get them, or to play a long time for them to occure naturally.

Fight interactions

  • Cold Hearted – Freeze 50 creatures

You will most likely get this by playing the regular way, but keep an eye out for Glacier in combination with a high Defense build, you will rack up those freezes very fast.

  • Toxic – Poison 50 creatures

Similarly to Cold Hearted, you will get it by playing. Items like Suffocate, Touch of Decay and Plague help a ton.

  • Antivenom – Poison 10 Banefangs

This challenge is very conveniant, since poison is one of the best ways to dispose of those pesky snakes. 10 instances of poison are achieved pretty quickly if you remember to use them on Banefangs.

  • Deflection – Parry 50 creatures

Items like Guards and Parrying Shield ramp up your parry chance, and when combined with a high Defense build, they allow you to deflect almost every hit.

  • Sneaky – Successfully Stealth past 10 different creatures in a game

The Dark Candle gives you a passive stealth boost, and Shadowstep grant you three free stealth checks. Top it off with items like Nightshade Wraps and Shadow hood and you’ll be as sneaky as a ninja.

  • Snake Sneak – Stealth past 10 Banefangs

Getting in a fight with Banefangs is rarely advantageous since they have a monumental speed. If you cant poison them or do damage outside of combat, stealthing past them is the better option most of the time. Work towards this achievement while playing for other objectives.

  • Shadow Walker – Successfully Stealth past 100 different creatures
  • Shapeshifting – Transform 20 creatures

Items like Dark Pact, Dark Defiance and Transformer will transform a lot of enemies in a short amount of time.

  • Stop Hitting Yourself – Kill 10 creatures with reflect damage

To reflect damage, equip Spiked, Spike Suit and some defensive gear. High defense will let you withstand more hit while you farm the reflect kills.

  • Ambitious Intent – Attack Owl friend (needs to survive one hit)

Nothing of great importance here, apart from the fact that killing Owl Friend will reduce it’s HP pool by 25% during his boss fight (that you are now locked in). Watch out, you must survive his first hit for the achievement to be optained!

Big Crits

  • Heavy Hitter – Deal 25+ damage in a single attack

Now we’re getting into the really synergistic part of achievements. The best way to succeed is to get a hold of Eruption and stack your damage, with Tasty Beans, The Crow and other high Attack equipment. To ensure a crit, try to find Grounding Force, which forces every fourth hit you give to be critical.

  • Max Damage!– Deal 99+ damage in a single attack

Repeat the steps above, but with added luck on the stats upgrade and events. Good luck you can do it!

Map navigation

  • A Quick Escape – Exit a room without attacking any creatures

Get in the very first room, sneak past the few beasts that are here, and you’re done!

  • Just Looking Around – Reach Depth 6 without attacking a creature

An extension of A Quick Escape, focus on high stealth and defense items, and try to heal as much as possible to nullify the damage you will take when escaping combat.

  • Hydrophobe – Reach depth 6 without drinking any potions

There is a big trap in this challenge. You would think that just sneaking around to get to floor 6 as fast as possible is the way, but there is a catch. You will stumble upon the Oh… A Visitor event, and if you dont have enough souls to buy something (usually around 25), you will be force fed (drunk?) a potion, killing your attempt. Kill enough early monsters to have 25 souls and then rush your way out.

  • Sprinter – Complete a run in under 18 minutes

This gets easier the better you know the game, dont really focus on it until you are very familiar with the game and the rest of the achievements are done.

Misc

  • An Offering – Use a Shrine

Click the shrine, go on, i’m watching. Don’t be shy.

  • I Am Overburdened – Have a full inventory

You will most likely end up with a full inventory at the end of your run anyways. When in the last 2 floors, try to buy cheap mimics and reroll them to find items for your missing slots.

  • Consecutive Curses – Get cursed by potions 3 consecutive times

The plan is simple, tank your clarity as much as you can (starting with Double Candle helps), and once you think your odds are good enough, go to a Reprieve room to spin the wheel!

  • New Perspectives – Shuffle 10+ times in a single run

Fire Frenzy and Volatile rooms make the achievement quite easy to get, combined to the shuffle crystals that spawn in regular floors.

  • Grave Digger – Dig up an item in the Graveyard

You need first of all to get the Shovel. It has a secret interaction when used in the Burial Grounds .When digging out your first grave, it will give you Bone Pearls, a super strong item, especially early on.

  • Good Boys – Pacify 25 Hounds

Using the Hand of Dog, transform ennemies into cute little dogs, and pat them afterwards! Finding the Companions event may offer you a lot of additional Puppers to pacify.

  • Never Too Many Hats – Equip 8 different Head slot items in one playthrough

This one is tricky. You will want to have as many as possible from Merchant, Generosity, Shovel and clarity-enhancing items.There is the most headgear in the Common pool, so buy and refresh grey Mimics to find helmets. Merchant allows the grey Mimics to be free of charge, and Generosity offers two items for the price of one.

  • Master of Strategy – Complete a run without any Epic or Legendary items equipped

This would deserve a guide of its own, and is nothing to be taken lightly. You will want to use all the solid rare items like Cover of Darkness, Rapier, False Confidence and Chestplate, and to be very efficient with your scroll and magic use.
