Five of the most difficult and time-consuming achievements in The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim are these five.
In spite of Skyrim’s ten-year existence, players continue to be drawn to Bethesda’s sprawling open-world title. It was only recently that Bethesda unveiled the Anniversary Edition, a brand new version of The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim that includes a slew of fan-made content and is optimized for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
Even though the Anniversary Edition is out, some fans might still be interested in unlocking all of Skyrim’s achievements. While many of the game’s 75 achievements can be unlocked through normal play, there are some that have proven incredibly difficult to obtain, with only a small percentage of players ever achieving them.
Xbox monitors the percentage of gamers who have completed Skyrim’s achievements. It’s easy to see which of these achievements have proven to be the most elusive for players over the years by taking a look at the ones that have proven the most difficult to obtain.
1.68 percent of the time, Master Architect can be unlocked.
Skyrim’s Master Architect achievement has a 1.68 percent chance of unlocking and is worth just 10 gamerscore. Skyrim players must construct three houses in order to earn this achievement, but the description seems to have misled some people. Players must not only construct three houses, but they must also finish each one completely, which necessitates building all three wings and a proper entrance.
It will take a significant amount of time to complete all three houses in Skyrim. To begin, players must have made enough progress through Dawnstar, Falkreath, and Morthal to be able to purchase land. Once the land has been purchased, players will have to focus on gathering the countless items required to not only construct the houses but also add each wing to an existing one. To build and finish each of the three houses in Skyrim, players will need a large amount of Clay, Iron Ingots, Quarried Stone, and Sawed Logs.
It’s just a matter of time and money for Skyrim players to complete this particular achievement. Those who are strapped for cash, on the other hand, may have difficulty achieving this goal. Because of this, the Master Architect achievement has one of the lowest unlock rates in Skyrim, making it a good choice for players to save it for the end of the game.
Unlock Rate for Legendary Items: 1.67%
Defeating one of Skyrim’s legendary dragons unlocks the Legend achievement, which is worth 40 points. Only 1.67 percent of Skyrim players have earned this achievement, which suggests that many players have found it difficult to defeat a legendary dragon in the game.
Legendary dragons don’t appear in Skyrim until the player reaches level 78, which is why the achievement is so rare. It will take a long time to get to level 78 in Skyrim, so only those who have already completed most of the game’s challenges should attempt it. Players in Skyrim should be on the lookout for a legendary dragon once they’ve reached level 78 in the game. It’s possible that players of Skyrim will find themselves bouncing around the map looking for a legendary dragon.
It’s best for Skyrim players to leave this achievement as one of the last things they do in the game, due to the achievement’s somewhat luck-based nature. Once they’ve completed the game’s other goals, they can worry about grinding to level 78 after they’ve leveled up a lot.
A 1.56 percent unlock rate for Oblivion Walker
The Oblivion Walker achievement in Skyrim, which requires 30 gamerscore, is one of the most infamous in the game. As simple as it sounds, players must collect 15 Daedric Artifacts in one go, but problems arise when they take into account various glitches that can prevent them from obtaining the achievement, potentially resulting in the need to reload their save and begin the game from the beginning again.
The Oblivion Walker achievement in Skyrim is notoriously glitchy, with a variety of issues that can effectively prevent players from obtaining enough Daedric Artifacts to complete the mission. Many players have had difficulty obtaining the Oblivion Walker achievement due to quests that give them non-Daedric Artifact items. This makes it even more difficult to obtain real Daedric Artifacts.
If you want to get the Oblivion Walker achievement in Skyrim, the best strategy is to do it as soon as you start the game. Because of this, there is less chance that some of the Daedric Artifacts will be impossible to obtain. There are numerous glitches that can prevent players from completing this achievement in Skyrim, so they’ll want to have a guide on hand to help them avoid them.
Unlock Rate for Vampire Mastered: 1.50 percent
At the end of the game, players who have collected all 11 of the game’s vampire perks will have earned the achievement “Vampire Mastered.” The vampire perks in Skyrim are unlocked through a different leveling process than the other skills players must learn in order to complete the game. Even though becoming a Vampire Mastered in Skyrim isn’t that difficult, it will take a long time for players to unlock it through normal gameplay.
Vampire Mastered can be unlocked by making a separate save game rather than attempting to unlock the game by becoming a vampire and playing normally. Simply wreak havoc on all of Skyrim’s towns in this burner save until you’ve purchased enough kills to unlock the achievement. What makes this achievement so difficult to get depends a lot on how you play Skyrim, but if you know what you’re doing, it can be simple.
Rate of Unlocking for Master Criminal: 1.50 percent
Even if you’ve already earned Vampire Mastered, Master Criminal requires you to play the game in a specific way, which is why you haven’t yet unlocked it in Skyrim. Even if you’re not interested in becoming a Vampire Mastered, you can still achieve Master Criminal in Skyrim by doing so, which is currently the rarest achievement in the game.
Skyrim’s open-world can be terrorized and savaged by players on their way to becoming Vampire Mastered if they kill everyone they can. Players can earn the Master Criminal achievement in the game by increasing their bounty in each hold to 1,000 gold while they’re doing this. In order to unlock the achievement, Skyrim players will need to amass a total bounty of 1,000 gold in all nine holds. It’s best to do this on a separate save than your main Skyrim save, as with Vampire Mastered.
The Anniversary Edition of The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
