ELEX Achievement And Walkthrough Guide

This guide is for players that want to complete the game 100% and preferably in one playthrough. The guide may contain spoilers.

Introduction

ELEX is a nice game when you get around level 20+ and can explore Magalan more freely. Before that, prepare to die and reload a lot because even a naked overgrown turkey will be your worst enemy. The game will be hard even on easy and don’t be ashamed to play on that difficulty if you want to enjoy the game without losing your mind.

Check the Hints section if you need some tips for the game.

Quests Achievements

The Main Story achievements are unlocked through story progression and they aren’t missable.

Romantic

ELEX Achievement And Walkthrough Guide

Started a relationship.

**Can be missed**

You can romance either Nasty (Outlaw) or Caja (Berserker) in Chapter 3. If you complete their companion quests then their affection level would be enough unless you decreased a lot through dialogue. Nasty likes when you’re emotional / chaotic and Caja likes when you’re good. You only need to talk to them when the parameters are met and then give your answer.

What you need to complete is:

Affection level: Idolized

Chapter 3

Sewer Rat

ELEX Achievement And Walkthrough Guide

Completed – The Claws.

This is like a Thieve’s Guild quest. First you need a member’s claw and for that you need to complete either Rat (Outlaw) or Katta (Berserk) quest. If you completed the quest Tramp Confederacy them you have received Rat’s Claw. Then go to the Domed City and talk to Vito, the barkeeper, and he will give you a key. Now you can follow the quest to enter the sewers and find the group of thieves. Also Alois is searching for the group and you can snitch them.

Turned the world upside down.

ELEX Achievement And Walkthrough Guide

Completed – Old Obligations.

Main story achievement.

Thicker than Water

ELEX Achievement And Walkthrough Guide

Completed – Showdown with Kallax.

Main story achievement.

Balance of Power

ELEX Achievement And Walkthrough Guide

Sealed the fate of Abessa City.

This is not only a single quest, but a group of quests. There are two faction that group together in the city when the ♥♥♥♥ hits the fan and they are Clerics / Berserkers and Outlaws / Separatists. To reach an outcome you need to exaust all the Domed City quests and always choose a side or you will arrive at a stalemate.

If you you’re in a stalemate after all quests are completed then you can try killing Alois (Cleric) or Rorik (Berserker) and wait a few days. You will receive a message “You choose a side…” after killing one of them.

Careerist

ELEX Achievement And Walkthrough Guide

Completed 300 missions.

It will take time to complete 300 quests and it is better if you do all possible quests before joining a faction.

Ending Achievements

Instead of playing the game 3 times for all the endings it is better to find a way to do all of them in a single playthrough. For that you need to lower your cold status throughout the game before reaching the last boss (Hybrid). If you don’t do that then you need to start the game again and play ALL the way to the end. The cold status can ONLY be decreased through dialogue and there is no other way unless you find a way to cheat that.

Before the fight with last boss you need to have the cold status on purely emotional or expressive (0 – 10). Then you will need to buy at least 950 natural elex. If you need money then you can hunt for monsters and sell their loot. If you have the animal trophy 3 then you will get more items and make much more money. I usually got around 40k per sweep.

When you reach the Hybrids chamber door, make a save file and go for the first fight.

Pure Rebel

ELEX Achievement And Walkthrough Guide

Sided against the Hybrid.

[Secret Achievement]

**Can be missed**

When talking with the Hybrid, choose the emotional choices.

The Third Way

ELEX Achievement And Walkthrough Guide

Fed Mana to the Hybrid.

[Secret Achievement]

**Can be missed**

Reload your save before the Hybrid and drink the natural elex until you reach the neutral cold status. It’s around 450-500 natural elex and after that go for the second fight. When talking with the Hybrid choose the neutral answers.

Before the fight you might want to make another save because on the next fight you need to drink all the natural elex.

Beast of Xacor

ELEX Achievement And Walkthrough Guide

Served the Hybrid.

[Secret Achievement]

**Can be missed**

Reload your save again and then drink all the natural elex. You will have the “ice cold” status after this. When talking with Hybrid choose the cold answers. After the fight you will get the Elexetor Armor, the best armor and the only way to get it is through this ending.

Coldhearted

ELEX Achievement And Walkthrough Guide

Cold value has reached 90

If you reached ice cold drinking elex potions then you might need a dialogue for it to register and unlock the achievement.

Faction Achievements

Before joining a faction, it’s better to prepare a way to complete any skill tree in the game. For that you will need lots of money (shards). Explore all the places you can for loot to sell. Depending on your level you might need at least 120k to spend on making elex potions. The skill Haggler can help get lower prices.

The recipes por making Elex Potion and Strong Elex Potion can be bought in Goliet. Make a save file for this and choose a skill tree that you want to master. Create 20 Strong Elex potions and 100-150 Elex Potions. Next find the teacher of the skill tree and unlock all the skills you can. Just add points on the attributes that you need. Once you get the achievement you can reload and master another skill tree.

Keep in mind that drinking elex potions will raise your cold. If you raise it too much you might lose one of the endings.

Hints & Tips

  • Find a companion as soon as you can.
  • Save before a dialogue and explore it’s options.
  • Quests can wait to be completed, it’s safe to get more levels and return.
  • Some quests can be completed by other means like pickpocketing an item.
  • Get Animal trophy ASAP to get money.
  • You will find Sunglasses on top of the windmill north of the Domed City. It’s an item detector and very useful for exploring.
  • One of the best ranged weapons in the game is The Redeemer, it is on top level of north Abessa Converter and you need to shut down the converter to get it.
  • Melee can be a killer with longer melee combos. The damage will increase and also stun the enemy.
  • Explosives weapons and grenades are good if you’re in a safe place.
  • Upgrade your weapons for better damage.
  • Do not modify the damage of a weapon if it can be upgraded because when you upgrade a weapon you lose the modifier.
  • Eat food to regain lost health out of combat, save potions for when you really need it.
  • Good Eater perk doubles the healing effects of food items.
  • Do not sell Elex potions and natural elex. They are too much valuable.
  • Small Elex Potions are worthless, combine them to make Elex Potions.
