Important


  • Please experience the game by your own first! Sable is a wonderful game that should be played by you without any guidance when playing for the first time. This guide contains spoilers since I have given walkthroughs for the quests that are associated with achievements.
  • When entering a region that you haven't found the map for, keep an eye on the sky for the cartographer's balloon so that you can buy the map of that region. Having the map of a region can be very helpful in discovering new locations.
  • I highly recommend returning Chum eggs to the Chum Queen as soon as you can. Having upgraded stamina can be extremely helpful when exploring the world of Midden.
  • Even though I have listed badges in an order (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc.) under their specific masks, badges can be found in any order unless otherwise stated.


Quest Related Achievements


Got Your Nose
Collect an elephant beetle

You get the optional objective to find elephant beetles during the “Beetle Detour” quest while finding the calibrator when assembling your hoverbike, but keep in mind that you can get this anytime during your playthrough. Go to the location shown below (near the dam where the control panel for hoverbike is) and go through the pipe to the open area with elephant beetles. Then you need to climb the Tassel trees and go near a fruit and it will make the fruit drop down. Grab a fruit and throw it near a beetle. Afterwards, you can grab the beetle while it’s eating the fruit.





Simoon
Build your hoverbike

Main story related and cannot be missed. Simply build your hoverbike.



Just The Two of Us
Leave the Ewer

Main story related and cannot be missed. Leave Ewer after building your hoverbike.



Up On High
Unblock the wind tower

Unlocked while doing “A Stubborn Snag” quest given by the Machinist Utarii in Burnt Oak Station.



Nesting Giant
Get into the Hercules Beetle Nest

While in Burnt Oak Station, talk to Innkeeper Ifaa and get the “Remnants of Change” quest. Simply follow along the quest and get to the Hercules Beetle nest. There is a partially broken building in this area. Climb to the top of that building and get one of the fruits on the vines at the top and go near the Hercules Beetle blocking the path to the nest. The beetle will come out if you’re holding the fruit. Lure the beetle out and enter the nest to get this achievement.


Note: I personally got this achievement when going near the Hercules Beetle while it’s blocking the path to the nest even without the fruit. This might be a bug and your experience may vary.



Power to the People
Return power to Eccria

Progress through the “Heartbreak in the City” quest given to you automatically when you visit Eccria.



Take That!
Point the finger at a suspect

You need to find the person who tampered with the Atomic Heart and created the power cut in Eccria. You must find evidence and decide who the culprit is. There is a clear cut answer that is confirmed by the developers, but the game doesn't tell you who actually did it even if you accused the correct person. So if you want, you could choose any of the given person as a suspect and get this achievement.

If you want to know more about suspects and deduce it yourself or the suspect confirmed by the developers, below are the hints/evidence/clue. Beware of spoilers.
You must find evidence near the Atomic Heart power core (broken glass, feathers, note of debt to the merchants, power core socket). There are 3 suspects. Talk with all of them.
  • Climber Garay: Located under the bridge to the entrance of Eccria.
  • Machinist Hamza: Located near the canal in Eccria. You will naturally meet him when repairing the power core. You will find his apartment to be trashed which raises some suspicion.
  • Merchant Iria: Located in the market in Eccria. Bribe the guard with Fallow Pomegranate (found in trees near Eccria or bought from vendor under the bridge to the entrance to Eccria) and unlock the door to her.
After talking with 3 suspects, talk to Café Owner Rita near the canals. Ask her about the power cut and then about Garay and she will vouch for his alibi. So you need to decide between Iria and Hamza. Iria has an alibi, given by her guards. Hamza's apartment was trashed and the the receipt proves that whoever stole the core owed debt to the merchants. Garay says that a machinist tried to sell a power core in the market (presumably to pay off the debt). So we can assume that Hamza tried to steal the power core to create a blackout to pay off the debt.


The developers also confirmed in their Reddit AMA that Hamza is the correct suspect.



Smoked Out
Collect a Hakoan glowworm

Go to the merchant quarters in Eccria (marked in map below) and interact with the strange snake-like creature. After the cutscene, talk with Merchant Citra and obtain the "Nozi's Nibbles" quest.

Go through the quest and speak with the Innkeeper Afii in Seven Sisters Station in Hakoa.
Next up, you have to go to the cave that has the glowworms. Enter the location and go near the waterfall. The entrance to the cave is hidden behind the waterfall.

After entering the cave, you will come across an open area with water puddles, rocks, and glowworms on the cave roof. You need to pick up a rock and drop it in a water puddle. Afterwards, the rock will immediately start to smoke. Quickly pick up the rock (while it is smoking) and put it right under a group of glowworms. The smoke from the rock will make them fall down. Afterwards, you can collect them to get this achievement.




Glider on the Storm
Harvest a lightning crystal

Go to the Seven Sisters Station in Hakoa and speak with Machinist Zahra. Ask for a machinist badge and she will give you the "Lightning in a Bottle" quest.

Afterwards, go to the Crystal Plateau and speak with the Hakoans there. There is a Hakoan trader named Caimin who sells lightning crystals for 100 cuts each. You can either farm them or buy them. Either of these methods will give you the achievement.
To farm them, you need to go to the very top of the Crystal Plateau and go near one the pillars shown below. When the lightning strikes a pillar, crystals will expand from it. Some of these crystals contain lightning crystals. Immediately climb the pillar and collect the lightning crystal. If you wait too long, the crystals break off and you will have to wait until lightning strikes again.




Squeeze One Out
Collect a slicer beetle poo

Go to the Seven Sisters Station in Hakoa and speak with Innkeeper Afii. Ask her if she needs any help and she'll give you the "The Long Drop" quest. Continue on with the quest and go to the Carab's Hold. Go inside the location and drop down to the water and swim until you come to the cave with the beetles. To get poop out of them, collect a fruit that are on top of a column and drop it near the beetles. While they're eating it, one beetle's back would glow in orange colour. Jump onto that beetle's glowing back area and it will squeeze out the poop.



Quest Related Achievements (Continued)


A Hard Place
Collect a orange ringed beetle

Go speak with Innkeeper Ofuu in Marrow Bone Station and get the "Orange Ringed Delights" quest.

Afterwards, go through the quest to the beetles' nest shown in the quest marker. These beetles burrow underground when you go near them, so to catch them, you need to wait until the beetles walk on the stone and go near them, they will try to burrow through stone and loose their balance and flip, allowing you to catch them. You can use the nearby Tassel fruits on the Tassel tress to lure them on to a solid surface.




Fragile Goods
Destroy a Nimoor plant
You get to destroy a Nimoor plant while doing the "Tough Nut to Crack" quest given by Guard Eliisabet. However, to unlock that quest, you first need to speak with her in Burnt Oak Station in Sansee and get the "A View from the Bridge" quest. Complete the quest by meeting her on Bridge of the Betrayed in Badlands.

Afterwards, meet her again in Marrow Bone Station in The Wash and get the "Tough Nut to Crack" quest. You will need to destroy Nimoor plants and find what's inside of them to get this achievement. Go to the Petrified Forest in The Wash at nighttime and find a Nimoor plant. They glow in bright blue colour. Go near one, pick it up and throw it away to break it. Afterwards, collect the item inside to get this achievement.




Ceiling Of Stars
Complete the puzzle in the Watch

Go to the Marrow Bone Station in The Wash and speak with the Machinist Kaalan there. You will get "An Eye To The Sky" quest. Go through the quest and go to The Watch. Keep in mind that you can only do this quest during daytime while the sun is shining. Go inside the structure until you come across a massive room with a large spherical object. To start the puzzle, go to the highest platform with a switch on the floor. Stand on it and it will open the roof.

After the sun shines in, go near a lever that is under a small arch. Move the lever until a section of the arch lights in blue colour. Do this with all the 3 levers under the arches.

Afterwards, go in front of the giant face and pick up a small spherical object from the pedestal there.

Finally, you need to insert the object into the pedestal with the symbol that matches the one on the ring of the large sphere. You will get this achievement after inserting the object into the correct pedestal.




Amateur Historian
Complete Historical Reconnection

To activate the "Historical Reconnection" quest, you need to interact with 1 of the 7 Sarin instances that you can find throughout Midden. The main way to get this is to find Sarin's chamber in The Whale in Redsee. However, interacting with any of the other 6 instances will activate this quest as well.

The quest tells you to find more information about Sarin in the beginning. In order to do that you need to find Sarin in all the other 6 locations (other than in The Whale) and listen to all the recordings. The locations of Sarin's other 6 locations can be found under "The Dunboyne", "Balfron Connection", "Rowleys Way", "Shadow Of Neave", "Trellick's Pillar", and "Centre Of Brunswick" achievements in the Exploration Related Achievements section.

After finding and talking with all the 6 Sarin instances, you will be asked to go to The Whale and meet Sarin. Go there and get to the first platform by the ladder (near the moving platforms) and immediately turn right and go until you come to the unlocked doors, go through the doors to meet Sarin. Complete this quest to get this achievement and some cool items.



The Quick and the Curious
Complete An Ancient Race

To get this achievement, you can go to the Machinist Fir in the Mysterious Shrine in Badlands and speak with her, or simply unlock one of the six mysterious structures scattered throughout Midden (how to unlock one is explained under the "Thread The Needle" achievement in Collectables Related Achievements section). In the latter method, you still need to go to Mysterious Shrine and speak with Fir to learn more about the nature of the quest.


Simply put, there are 6 mysterious structures throughout Midden. To unlock one, you need to drive your hoverbike through 4 giant, green rings that are near that structure.

Afterwards, the structure will open up and you can collect an item inside. Locations of the 6 structures are shown below.

Sansee


Redsee


Badlands


Hakoa


The Wash


Sodic Waste


After collecting all the items inside all 6 structures, insert them on the pedestals inside the Mysterious Shrine and speak with Fir who tells you to wait a few days. Speak with Fir after waiting a few days to complete the quest and get some cool items and the achievement.



The Gliding

Keep going through these statues until come to a cave entrance with 2 archer statues.

This however, can be a tedious process since some statues are not clear in the distance and some have fallen down so you need to search the next one by looking through the surrounding by yourself.

Quite The Catch
Catch your first fish

Go to the Angler Yoshi found in Angler Hut in Sansee (Location shown below)

Speak with him and he will give you a Basic Wooden Rod and you will be able to start fishing. You can easily catch your first fish the moment you get the fishing rod.

If you are using keyboard + mouse, press and hold 'T' to pull up the fishing menu and then press and hold 'E' to charge your throw. Charging only affects the thrown distance of your hook. If it's a successful throw, you will be able to see the fishing line going to the ground.

After throwing it, you need to wait until you see an exclamation mark on top of Sable's head. As soon as you see it, press 'E' to start pulling. After this, you will be taken to a minigame where you need to keep the fish inside a small rectangle. The fish will try to escape by going to the left or right. You need to use 'A' and 'D' keys to keep the fish inside rectangle until it turns blue. If it turns red, you will fail.

Keep in mind you can only find fish in the sand. So throwing it in water or rock doesn't work. And different types of fishes are found in different regions.

Note: You will be able to upgrade your fishing rod by continuing to return fish to the Vivarium. After returning a few fish, you will be given the Trickster Atomic Rod. This will make fishing easier by increasing the size of the rectangle in the minigame.

You can find Researcher Casii inside this location. Speak with her and she'll tell you to collect fish and insects to fill the Vivarium. You will also be able to purchase clues on how to find different types of fish and insects.

After returning a few fish, you will be given the Trickster Atomic Rod which makes fishing much easier.

After returning all the fishes and butterflies, you will earn this achievement.

Note: Insect/fish locations are based on where I caught the specific insect/fish in my playthough. They may be caught in other locations as well.

Chum Novice
Deliver your first Chum egg

Chums are adorable, white, long reptilian creatures that you can find throughout Midden.

They will offer an egg when you interact with them. You need to deliver 1 egg to the Chum queen in Chum Lair in Sansee to get this achievement.




Honorary Chum
Deliver 50 Chum eggs

You need to collect 50 Chum eggs from 50 Chums and deliver them to the Chum Queen in Chum Lair to get this achievement.



Chum Expert
Complete Building a Queendom

You need to complete "Building a Queendom" quest given by the Chum Queen when you first speak with her. There are a total of 165 Chums spread throughout Midden that you have to find and get eggs from. However, you only need to find 100 eggs and return them to Chum Queen to finish this quest. Users "Nafeij" and "ricbigo" have made a very helpful guide with the map showing all the Chums' locations.

Exploration Related Achievements


Thread The Needle
Reveal a Hicaric arch monument

Throughout Midden, you find structures like the ones shown below. To unlock one, you have to ride your bike through the 4 giant, green rings (similar to the one that you went through when you first got the broken hoverbike in the beginning) that are nearby. Go through the 4 giant rings and this achievement will unlock.

The above shown structure is right next to The Dunboyne near Burnt Oak Station.



The Gift of Gab
Talk to 15 NPCs

Self explanatory. Speak with 15 different NPCs.



Silver-Tongued Sable
Talk to 30 NPCs

Self explanatory. Speak with 30 different NPCs.



Under The Hood
Customise your hoverbike with a Machinist

Simply customise any part of your hoverbike using a machinist. You can use the dyes you buy or find while exploring to customise the hoverbike. Two early game examples would be the Ibexii Red dye behind the statue in the cave under the Ibex camp or Salt Plains Pool dye that you can get by talking to the Shephard Lia in Burnt Oak Station.



Bubble Up
Hover for 1500m using the Perpetual

You need to travel a total range of 1500 metres while gliding. Use the gliding mechanism whenever you can and you will eventually get this achievement.



Sticky Paws
Climb 500m in total

Self explanatory. You need to climb a total of 500 metres in length. Distance climbed on ladders count for this achievement as well.



Dune Rider
Travel 50km on the bike

Self explanatory. Travel a total of 50 kilometres on your hoverbike. Keep using the hoverbike to travel and you will eventually get this achievement.



Bikes Don't Fly
Get 5 seconds of air time on the hoverbike

Much like the achievement description says, you need to jump with your hoverbike from a large height from a location and fall for 5 seconds. You can get this on any hoverbike accessible location with a large enough height, but the location that I have consistently managed to get this is near the Seven Sisters Station in Hakoa. Keep in mind that you must use at least 2 parts of the Speedster Bike set for higher performance. How to find that set is under "Bike Aficionado" achievement.

Go to the location I have shown above and mount your hoverbike and accelerate towards the saddle between the two hills that I have marked. There will be a big fall in the next side of the saddle and immediately after jumping, turn the bike to the right, towards the bottom for more fall time. This is a very easy, and consistent way to get this achievement.

Here's a video of me doing this jump in case the above text is not clear.

Note: There are a lot of hills with saddles in the Hakoa region that has big falls which can be used to get this achievement.



Not That Kind Of Gliding
Fall from a great height

You need to fall from a massive height. You will be able to get this from any location with a large enough height where you can fall uninterruptedly until Sable spreads her body and free-fall.

The location I got this is from the cartographer’s balloon in Badlands. To get to the cartographer, you need to climb the giant animal skeletons and get to the top where the balloon is. Once you’re on the top, aim for a location on the ground with a clear path and jump. Make sure you don’t activate the glide to break the fall. Simply jump and let yourself hit the ground, and sable will automatically activate the glide to break the fall when hitting the ground.



Note: This can also be done very easily by falling from other Cartographers' balloons (except for the one in Ibex Camp).

Thank you for your kind words!

This is fantastic, thank you for compiling this!

Ah, no worries.

It was probably a bug then. I encountered another broken quest when I played on launch as well. Luckily a simple reload of the game fixed it (which may have happened to you as well).

Huh. I never got a notification that you had responded. I had talked to her at Burnt Oak.

I went back to the Bridge today and she's here now so idk what changed.

Did you talk to her first at Burnt Oak Station? I believe she appears on a side of the bridge after you meet and talk to her first at Burnt Oak Station.

I can't find Eliisabet at the Bridge of the Betrayed. I'm standing infront of the tent with the lit fire but there's no one here. I can't find anything online about it, but am I doing something wrong?
FelixDracul  [author] Feb 27, 2023 @ 7:33pm 
Ah, thank you very much for letting me know. It's been a while since I've played that part so I don't remember the exact process. So I'll look up the process online and fix the text if it's needed.

Congrats your guide, must have taken a lot of work! I have some feedback about the following bit:

"Finally, you need to insert the object into the pedestal with the symbol that matches the one on the ring of the large sphere. You will get this achievement after inserting the object into the correct pedestal."

I don't think this is correct. First, because *all* the other pedestal symbols also match the symbols on the ring, not just one of them. And second, because I got the door to open by lighting the two leftmost pedestals, which also happened to be the only two symbols that were lit up by the sun at the time. That, combined with the hint the stone upstairs gives "when the sun casts shadows, provide the Stone the answer it seeks" leads me to believe the answer is to light whatever pedestal(s) are currently being lit by the sun on the ring. It's a shame the game autosaved and I can't reload the save to test this hypothesis!
