How in the world am I supposed to achieve Adventure Master?????

Finish the game => new game + mode where you start with all your stats from the previous game (8 in each skill) and all of the magic spells (no need for the side quests no more). Bosses are then very easy, each time you hit 9000 points you get a 1up.

I am surprised! There are not many achievment for this game. The achievement of the dungeon item for exemple.

Just added Item achievements.It's not much, but having them would be a cool thing in my opinion.

I've been intending on adding some challenging ones myself so if you want I can promote yours to the main set once I'm done with the ones I'm planning so people doing the new ones can do them all at once.

Will adventure master still unlock if you just marathon the game through on the first new game and manage not to die/dontinue?

Anyone have any tips on how to beat the Bosses of the Palaces without getting damaged?

Also, to get the Adventure Master Achievement, can the file be a new game + with saves etc. or does it have to be a 000 file? Thanks!

For how to beat bosses without getting damaged, best is watching some youtube videos tutorials, they are pretty well made to explain how to do it (and it works with new game +). And yes adventure master achievement works with new game + too.

I'll have another go at this again and try not to pull my hair out just beating the game

Although the bosses without damage was very fun and challenging, they weren't as difficult as I originally thought. Adventure master is interesting as well!
