A simple list of all achievements available in Ocean’s Heart. One is missable!
How to Obtain All Achievements
- Complete the game without visiting Spruce Head Shrine.
- When you get the two main quests, one to explore Spruce Head and one to go to Ballast Harbor, just don’t go to Spruce Head. After Ballast Harbor, make your way to Yarrowmouth & Kingsdown Isle. If you do this, you won’t get the hints that lead you to Kingsdown Isle from the NPCs, so just go east out of Yarrowmouth then south. Follow this trail and stand on the raft to ride it across the channel to Kingsdown Isle. Follow the bridges south through the rainy area, then interact with the leftmost pillar by the wall to unlock the Bear Catacombs.
