Hey there fellow Mordheimers!
I'm about to hit the plat in this game and I thought it would be nice to share some info about the trophies without writing a full-fledged guide (which I unfortunately don't have time to). So here we go 🙂
Trophies stack over warbands
A lot of the trophies are pretty straight forward, e.g. killing 50 impressive warriors or gathering 25.000 Wyrdstone weight in total. All of them stick across all your warbands - apparently even if you delete them (thanks @Mellenthin for the hint!). Many of them will come naturally as you play through the campaigns, and even the daring ones like selling Wyrdstone for a total of 100.000 gold or search 1.000 loot points will be quite close to being completed after you've finished all campaigns of the 4 initial warbands. Since you can't really boost the rest but rather have to just play the game legit, you might as well get the DLCs done and start a new campaign with Witch Hunters or Undead 🙂
Spend 1 Year with the same warband
One year in Mordheim is 400 days. With upgraded negotiator veteran skill and without missing out on a demanded wyrdstone delivery, you can skip roughly 80-100 days. So once you can make it to day 300 with the wyrdstone you saved, you should be in the clear.
500 warriors falling out of action during battle
This is a bit of a hassle, because you can not simply abandon a mission, rather your warriors have to actually be put out of action during a legit battle. You will likely get some deaths (I'd estimate 50 to 150, depending on if you are using backup saves or not), but 500 is just a lot. The fastest way to farm this is as follows:
Start a new Skaven Warband at Rank 5
Buy a leader and 9 henchmen
Start a Skirmish Exhibition match (doesn't spend in game time, doesn't have any consequences like permanent injuries or xp)
Settings: Opponent - Normal I Opponent Warband - Sisters I Rout Threshold - 0% I Map - Marketplace I Gameplay - Mode 2 I Deployment - Buyer Beware I Auto-Deployment - On
Now start the match and suicide your units by repeatedly running through the poison puddles. Spare your leader and only kill the henchmen for one extra death per run. Since you are playing Skaven against Sisters, your units will be on turn rather early. Nets you 8 deaths per run, each run taking about 4 minutes.
Completing 100 Wyrdstone deliveries
For this trophy it doesn't matter to which faction and how much you deliver. You can simply send one Wyrdstone to each of the factions, skip a day, immediately send one Wyrdstone again, rinse and repeat.
Unlock 100 recipes
As soon as you have some Veteran Ranks, invest them in the Librarian Contact. Actually not only for the trophy, but also because good formulas can immensely enhance your build. I ended up getting this skill for every single one of my warbands right at the beginning.
All the multiplayer trophies
Just start a Skirmish Exhibition Map, and as soon as the match starts immediately abandon. While this doesn't count for the kills, it does for the wins and therefore for the tropies. Alternatively you can farm online wins + warriors out of action at the same time by doing the above method in a multiplayer match.
Last but not least
I would highly suggest using backup saves. Even when you decide to take every injury and death the game throws at you (which can be a lot), unfortunately the game sometimes just bugs on you. That way you can lose warriors or a whole match without doing a mistake at all. One example: I got hit by a melee unit that was way out of reach (as in multiple movement bubbles), but it still somehow connected and killed one of my heroes. Same thing happened in my favour against the manticore, so those things can be nice too. But receiving a permanent injury that basically destroys one of your main characters because of some random bs is way worse than the good that may come from those bugs. Also, even if everything runs smoothly, RNGesus might still be in a very bad mood and obliterate your whole warband. Mordheim fully allows you to recover from that, but it takes a ton of time. Personally, I only played through everything without using backup saves once, sort of to proof to myself that I CAN do it. Imo it's not worth it every time, as it forces you to play more of what you already did instead of enjoying the progression of your warband. At least that was my experience.
And that's it for the time being 🙂 Maybe that will help someone in the distant future, when one brave souls dares to go for the platinum in Mordheim again 😉 So if you are reading this and still thinking about wether or not to go for the plat - do it, the game really is great! Why not start today? Because:
It's a good day to die... or maybe live a little longer?
