All Routes/Endings + Achievement Guide – Gilded Shadows 1 - steamclue.com

This guide is still in development. However, I’m publishing it early with whatever I have so far so that you can enjoy the game quicker if you only play with guides.
 
 

Intro

Here are some basics you may want to know before you start playing:
 
 

  • There are 6 people to romance right now (Reuben, Yuu and Quill will be released later, and I will update this guide when they are)
  • Each option has a certain number of endings, with Magnus and Jack having the most. They all have a “Passionate” and “Sweet” ending. You are only given an “ending” achievement for the “Passionate” ending, which can be largely seen as the “best” romance ending, whilst “Sweet” ending can be seen as the friendship ending.
  • I personally recommend starting with the Crimson characters (in particular, do Jack’s route, and then Caissa’s route) before you start the Endgame characters (in particular, Ari’s route first, and then Caleb’s route). This is because I think they run onto each other well and prevent the majority of spoilers. Then the game itself recommends Magnus before Lance, and I personally recommend Lance last, as well.
     
     
     
     
     
  • I will be adding the timelines at a later date
  • Like my other guides, this one will not be concise. If you want the “fatest” and “optimal” ways to woo them all, this is not the guide for you. It is detailed in order to give people as much information for those little loose ends.
  • Your eye-colour and hair-colour do not matter. Pick your favourite look at your leisure. Keep in mind, certain characters will have certain dialogue based on your appearance. For example, the Ari route will unlock a special text if you also have white hair. Your personality, however, does matter – as certain choices are locked before personality traits.
  • Top tip: Before you meet Rory, your interactions with other characters are largely free. Use this initial chapter to see what personality traits characters react favourably to. For example, Caleb likes when you are flexible and get in the car, and cautious when he walks you back. So you’ll want to restart and pick those two traits in order to benefit from later, “locked” dialogue choices in his route. This is the case with every character.
  • Certain choices may currently be broken with this personality trait system. For example, I am currently able to select choices that should be locked behind traits. However, this is a day-one guide and game, so this may be intentional, or may be fixed. If so, the guide will be updated to accommodate this.
