Time Traveler Achievement Guide
Take 5 turns in a row while playing with only Chronicle of the Godslayer.
The Time Traveler achievement requires you to use the Tablet of Time’s Dawn when the center deck had been depleted.The center deck is replaced with cards from the void that have been defeated or banished after its depletion. The center deck of CotG contains approximately 20 monsters and is the base number of cards that would appear in the center deck after its depletion.
In the beginning, focus on acquiring Rune cards, adding Power later. Cards with Draw are a must.
Some cards with Hand Discard/Banish are going to be needed sooner rather than later. Almost every Construct is a must buy. Cards rewarding Honor should be ignored.
Ignore monsters that come up unless there is no other options in the center row, with the exception of Sea Tyrant (remove ASAP).
Do not kill any Cultists.
In the end, your deck should have approximately 18 constructs (most of them mecha), 5-6 Mystics, and all the draw cards you can get. Banish all Apprentice and Miltia.
A few cards are absolutely required to do this achievement. If they end up in the void or the AI grabs them, you will need to just start all over again. These cards are:
- Arbiter of the Precipice
- Hedron Cannon
- Hedron Link Device
- Master Dhartha
- Seer of the Forked Path
- Tablet of Time’s Dawn
- Twofold Askara
Another somewhat necessary card is Seer of the Forked Path. It is the only card that can banish monsters in the center row. Two copies is good, three is better.
A few power cards and such are also going to be necessary. You may not make it through the 4th cycle without them. Recommended cards include:
- Emri, One with the Void
- Oziah the Peerless
- Demon Slayer(s)
- Arha Templar (2)
Use Arha Templar to defeat Mistake of Creation or Mephit so you can banish other cards in center row. With, Mistake, wait until you have a card in your discard pile that you want to banish. Oziah the Peerless should be saved to kill Earth Tyrant each turn.
While expelling monsters and such, the Tablet will eventually come around again. Grab it and use to get another turn. Repeat until success.
