(it's recorded on Normal difficulty, but really the difficulty is irrelevant). It also contains all Health Upgrade locations, and the Secret Ending.
Secret in the Sand
Obtain the Secret Ending Missable
To obtain the secret ending - and the true, canonical ending that carries into The Two Thrones
- you must collect all health upgrades, obtain the Water Sword, and then defeat the Dahaka. This trophy will unlock shortly after Black Sand
, during the end-game cinematic.
The Art of Sand
Obtain all hidden artwork Collectible
There are a total of 50 Art Chests to collect, located in both the Past and the Present. To collect a Chest, simply hit it with your weapon. Which Chests you have collected is recorded outside of your save file, meaning that you can collect them across all playthroughs, and you do not need to save your game after collecting a chest.
For a written walkthrough, please refer to kakalukiaJay's guide on the Ubisoft forums
Note: it has been reported that obtaining these Chests in a certain order can cause your game to glitch. To avoid any issues, collect each Chest in the same order as they obtained in this video.
Use all Time Powers at least once Combat-related
Though there are technically six Time Powers, two of them are upgrades and do not count towards this trophy. You can earn this trophy once you have obtained the Ravages of Time power. Simply use each of the listed abilities at least once.
to rewind time
Eye of the Storm:
to slow down time around the Prince
Breath of Fate:
while blocking with
, press and hold
to release an AoE attack
Ravages of Time:
once to attack with great speed
Grab and throw 100 enemies Combat-related
To grab and throw an enemy, press
towards them, then press
twice - once to vault them, and a second time mid-vault to perform a throw. Once you have thrown a total of 100 enemies, this trophy will unlock.
you can control the direction in which the enemy is thrown with
Decapitate 150 enemies Combat-related
There are a number of ways to decapitate an enemy, and which is best really comes down to your own preference. The easiest and most fool-proof method, however, is to weaken an enemy which can be vaulted, vault them by pressing
, and then, while in mid-vault, follow up with a head-rending slash by pressing
. Once you have decapitated 150 enemies, this trophy will unlock.
the above method cannot be performed while dual wielding.
throwing a secondary weapon has a chance to decapitate a weakened enemy (a weakened enemy will leak sand), so you can make progress towards this trophy at the same time as Throwing Master
Land on the Horizon
Reach the Island of Time
Following the opening cinematic, you'll find yourself on the Prince's ship, sailing towards the Island of Time. This serves as the game's tutorial. Once you complete it, the Prince will be thrown overboard, after which he'll wash up on the shore of the Island. This trophy will unlock shortly after.
Get all life upgrades Collectible
There are a total of 9 Health Upgrades to collect, and you must collect them all in a single playthrough to unlock this trophy. Getting all Health Upgrades will also unlock the Water Sword, and allow you to see the secret ending, earning Water Sword
and Secret in the Sand
Note: it has been reported that obtaining these Health Upgrades in a certain order can cause your game to glitch. To avoid any issues, collect each Upgrade in the same order as they obtained in this video.
Obtain the Water Sword Missable
To obtain the Water Sword, you must first find all health upgrades. See Maximum Capacity
for their locations.
With all upgrades collected, the Water Sword will appear in the Hourglass Chamber. Simply walk over and pick it up to unlock this trophy.
Kill 100 enemies using a dual weapon technique Combat-related
Secondary weapons are dropped by defeated enemies, can be ripped away from live ones, or can be found just lying on the ground. To pick one up, simply stand over it and press
. Unlike your main weapon, secondary weapons will quickly degrade and break. Kill 100 enemies with a secondary weapon equipped (use
to attack with with the secondary weapon) to unlock this trophy.
Rock 'n' Roll
Defeat the Giant Golem Story-Related
You'll encounter this fella in the Prisons, during A Throne And A Mask. He's like a regular golem, but bigger, so treat him as such. To kill him, you're going to need a minimum of two full sand tanks, and if you don't have at least one when you enter the arena, you're going to have a bad time. If you do in fact only have one, your first priority is to get a second. From the entrance way, head right into the corner to find a smashable pot that will give you your second sand cloud.
Now, for the Giant Golem himself, start by avoiding his attacks and hacking at his feet from behind (where he's not armoured). When you've dealt enough damage, he'll fall to his knees, allowing you to climb him by pressing
. Once on his back, slash him about 5 times, tap
to slow down time, and then resume slashing. When the ability finishes, you have two options: stay on, or get off. The Giant Golem is going to try and grab you and throw you off, so you can either dodge his ability (VERY hard to do), or you can jump off voluntarily. I recommend the second option, because if he manages to grab and throw you, he'll regenerate some of his health.
Now that you're back on the ground, simply repeat the process outlined above, and he should go down on your second attempt.
Defeat the Griffin
The Griffin might, under different circumstances, be a formidable boss. Alas, when you fight it, you'll have... let's say "certain powers" that will allow you to spam sand powers, making this fight a pit stop in your playthrough, rather than a challenge.
When the Griffin is on the ground, use Eye of the Storm to slow time and just whale on him, making sure to avoid his attacks (his front paws and his tail). When the Griffin takes to the skies, just roll out of the way when it dive-bombs you. Repeat until dead.
Defeat the Empress - Normal Ending
To fight the Empress at the end of the game (the so-called Bad ending), you must NOT pick up the Water Sword (you can collect all health upgrades, just don't touch the sword in the Hourglass Chamber). When you reach the end, provided that you don't have the Water Sword, you'll fight Kaileena, the Empress of Time.
The battle itself plays out similarly to the first time you fought her, with an exception: when she has taken enough damage, she'll lift off the ground and summon a series of sand tornadoes. She is invulnerable in this state, so just run around and roll out of the way of the tornadoes. When she's on the ground, attack her with short combos; when she's attacking you, try to keep her at a short distance rather than just deflecting her attacks, otherwise she'll trip you over (unblockable). Once you have depleted her health bar, this trophy will unlock.
Defeat the Dahaka - Secret Ending Missable
In order to even face the Dahaka, you must first obtain the Water Sword. See Water Sword
for more information.
With the Water Sword equipped, the Prince will notice that the weapon is capable of harming the Dahaka, and so decides to fight it instead of Kaileena. This fight is similar to the Griffin battle in that spamming Eye of the Storm while attacking it is probably the best way to defeat it. Just slash it repeatedly while avoiding its own attacks. Once you knock it down to about half-health, Kaileena will hit it with some kind of ranged attack that will knock it to the edge of the platform. Just run over and start hitting it until its health bar is depleted.
Defeating the Dahaka will also unlock Secret in the Sand
Complete the game in any difficulty without dying Missable
This trophy sounds harder than it is (though it's still pretty hard). When you die (and you will), one of two things will happen: either you'll rewind time using Recall and escape death; or, if you have no sands left, you'll see a Game Over screen, from which you can either Retry or Quit. Selecting the latter will take you to the main menu, while the former will set you back to your most recent checkpoint and screw you out of this trophy. Basically, what this trophy description should really say is "Complete the game in any difficulty without selecting Retry from the Game Over screen."
If you're following this guide's roadmap, you'll be attempting this on your third, Easy playthrough. Just play the game, and if you die, use Recall to undo it. In the event that you die with no sands left, you need to choose to Quit, and then reload your last save. Choosing Retry even once will permanently corrupt your save file, and you won't be able to earn this trophy during the playthrough in question.
Note: Prince of Persia: Warrior Within save files are not protected, which means you can backup your save onto a USB stick or upload it to the Cloud, just in case you accidentally select the Retry option and need to retrieve a clean save.
Play the game for 10 hours
Much like Sands of Time
in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
, this trophy simply requires that you play the game for a total of 10 hours, across all playthroughs. If you're following this guide's roadmap, it should unlock sometime during your Hard/Secret Ending run.
Throw weapon at enemies 50 times Combat-related
Secondary weapons can be thrown at enemies by pressing
. Provided you are near an enemy, the game will auto-target for you. Throw 50 weapons at enemies to unlock this trophy.
while a thrown weapon will often kill a low-level enemy, you do not need to kill 50 enemies by throwing weapons to earn this trophy.
throwing a secondary weapon has a chance to decapitate a weakened enemy (a weakened enemy will leak sand), so while you make progress towards this trophy, you can also work toward Executioner
