Basic Element Basic Element
Use all basic elements at least once.

  • Water
  • Lightning
  • Life
  • Arcane
  • Shield
  • Earth
  • Cold
  • Fire
Vanilla Ice Vanilla Ice

ce is made by combining Water(Q) and Cold(R).

Let off some steam Let off some steam
Create a spell containing Steam.

Steam is made by combining Water(Q) and Fire(F).

State Alchemist State Alchemist
Create a spell that contains at least 3 different elements.

Many spells use at least three elements. One such example is (Q+F+S+A).

I'm the wizard king, I can do anything! I’m the wizard king, I can do anything!
Create a spell that contains 5 different elements.

Few examples:
(E+W+D+Q+R+Q);
(A+S+Q+F+F+E);
(Q+F+Q+F+A+S+E+R).

The Enchanter The Enchanter
Imbue your weapon with a spell.

Prepare the spell and press Shift+LMB.

Houdini Houdini
Break free from entanglement without using spells or magicks.

Pressing the space bar repeatedly when entangled will accomplish this.

IMMA FIRIN' MAH LAZER!!!! IMMA FIRIN’ MAH LAZER!!!!
Successfully cross two beams into a more powerful one.

This is easy to accomplish in multiplayer. When you see a teammate cast a beam, simply charge an Arcane beam and fire so that the two intersect. This also works on beams cast by hostile creatures, such as the Disciple’s Arcane Beam. In singleplayer, you must use a shield to reflect your beam back into itself (you can simply fire a beam from inside of the AoE shield).

RPG much? RPG much?
Complete all side quests in the game.

In Chapter One, there is a woman with an exclamation point over her head talking about rats in her basement. Killing the attacking goblins and talking to her again will give you this achievement.

It's over nine thousand!!!! It’s over nine thousand!!!!
Deal over 9000 damage to one enemy.

This is easy to get later in the game or at the beginning of chapter 3, firing a strong beam at Vlad. Alternately, you can get something wet (with Rain or Water) and use Thunder Bolt (Q+F+A+S+A) on it for 10,000 damage. Also you can direct hit a bomb-carrying goblin with a Fireball (D+F+F+F+F) and he will be inflicted with 10,000+ damage points (damage depends on shot precision) – base damage is dealt by his own bombs’ explosion.

Never cross the beams Never cross the beams
Cross opposite beams so that at least someone dies from it.

After crashing your airship in Chapter Three, there is a man standing, staring over a cliff. Killing him will earn this achievement.

Wingardium Leviosa Wingardium Leviosa
Push someone off a cliff.

Pushing them off flying ships in Chapter Three also counts.

Use Haste and repeatedly run down the steps in Chapter One just outside the castle. You will take a very small amount of falling damage each time. Or, just fall off a cliff. You can also get this achievement while fighting Khan, when he throws you into a wall at high speeds.

It's raining (beast)men It’s raining (beast)men
Gib 5 beastmen in 5 seconds.

At the start of Chapter Three, cast Haste (A+S+F), run to the windmill and lure as many beastmen as possible, then cast AoE Shield (E) then Rain (Q+Q+F). While shield is active use AoE frost seeds (R+R+R+R+E) and kill all with AoE skill (Q+F+Q+F+S+S+S).
Obs: You’ll need to have “Blood and Gore” activated at the game settings.

101st Airborne 101st Airborne
Jump off a cliff and save yourself by teleporting.

First Blood First Blood
Kill one enemy using the M60.

You get the M60 for successfully defending every house from Jotunn at the end of Chapter Three.

This is Magicka! This is Magicka!
Push the soldier in battlefield down the hole.

At the start of Chapter 5, there is a soldier standing next to a circular hole. Use any magic to push him into it.

The perfect storm The perfect storm
All players survived a thunderstorm.

Surviving a thunderstorm in singleplayer will earn this too. Easy to get by
constantly using a shield bubble (E) and recasting it when hit. Or even easier to
get by casting a lightning immunity shield on self (E+A). It only lasts 12 seconds
so you may need to renew the shield. Another method is to obtain
Righteous Rod of Runes from the Dwarf Priests in Chapter 6 or Chapter 11
which gives you lightning immunity. The easiest way though, is just to cast
Thunderstorm then Nullify (S+E) it immediately to end the thunderstorm.

One in a million? One in a million?
Get struck by a thunderbolt and survive.

Casting Shield or lightning resistance on yourself can help you to get this achievement. Additionally, the Cyber Robe actually gains health from lightning. See The perfect storm achievement above.

OMG! They killed Yellow! OMG! They killed Yellow!
Die with yellow robes.

As the description says.

Blue… No Yelloooow! Blue… No Yelloooow!
Have a hard time settling on a color.

Change the color of your robes multiple times.

Better you than me Better you than me
Be invisible while one other player dies.

Can be done easily if you put another player in danger and when they are about to die trigger the invisibility.

Killing your friends, you're doing it wrong Killing your friends, you’re doing it wrong
Heal a total of 100 000 hit points.

Healing yourself also gains progress on this achievement. Overheal that does not restore any HP also counts.

Finders keepers Finders keepers
Steal your friends equipment after he has died.

Simply loot a dead body and steal the equipment.

Deep Impact Deep Impact
Kill 5 enemies with a single Earth projectile.

An easy way to do this is to throw a rock in a big zombie horde summoned by yourself.

We are the champions We are the champions
Survive all waves of a challenge.

This will come once you complete your first challenge.

I call it a Hawking Hole I call it a Hawking Hole
Make 50 enemies get sucked into the same Vortex.

Do this in Chapter Eight during the Aristocrats boss fight. Cast the portal (Q+R+S+Q+R+E+Q+R) as soon as the fight starts and it should spawn in the middle of the arena, as the Aristocrats only teleport into the middle, they will immediately be sucked in once they teleport. Also if you use the portal on Vlad you will get the achievement as well.

Mission improbable Mission improbable
Complete Adventure in less than 4 hours.

The save must show less than 4 hours. You will get this achievement after the credits roll. Completing Magicka: The Stars Are Left in less than 4 hours also counts for this achievement and is probably a lot easier.

Stuff of legends Stuff of legends
Defeat Fafnir by striking him with Gram.

You can obtain Gram in Chapter Two, after killing the forest troll eating the moose. Carry it until you reach Fafnir in Chapter Eleven.

I put on my robe and wizard hat I put on my robe and wizard hat

Sherlock Holmes Sherlock Holmes
Find all secret areas in the game.

MU-MU-MU-MULTIKILL! MU-MU-MU-MULTIKILL!
Kill 20 enemies with one spell or magick.

An easy way to do this is to use the Daemon Arm (obtained in Chapter Six) which gives you unlimited beam duration. On Chapter Eight before entering the mines, there is a checkpoint and a bridge. Haste/Teleport past all the monsters to the other side of the plateau and then run back to the other side of the bridge. Since all the mobs follow you, toasting them all with a constant beam at the bridge choke point is no problem.

Too fancy for fireballs? Too fancy for fireballs?
Complete one level using only magicks.

Chapter Seven is an easy place to get this. Only use Teleport, do not cast any spell (eg, do not freeze the river), do not swing your weapon.

Bad Taste Bad Taste
Overkill 1000 enemies.

Lightning Bolt is a good way to get overkill damage on enemies, as it does 5,000 damage per strike.

King's Quest King’s Quest
Find all the moose.

There are 12 Moose that you must find in order to obtain this achievement.

Lead farmer Lead farmer
Kill 1000 enemies using firearms

Easy to accomplish in the two Vietnam challenges. The M60 found in Chapter Three also counts for this achievement, so it can be achieved in Adventure Mode as well. Another method is to get the M60 and shoot Fafnir after he has died, because this get you 100+ each time.

.This can only be obtained in the DLC campaign. A fairly simple way to do this is to go to the first door on your left in Chapter 3. Kill the Shoggoth that spawns, then stand anywhere near the dark portals, repeatedly cast Super Lightning Steam Storm (Q+F+A+A+A+E), and watch as the infinite Deep Ones get fried one-by-one.

Ice Age Ice Age
It’s what killed the dinosaurs. Smash 100 frozen creatures to bits.

The typical way to do this is to freeze enemies (Water(Q), Cold(R)) then destroy them before they thaw. However, the absolute easiest way to achieve this is to grab the Frost Cleaver from Goblin Captains of Chapter Eight, then return to earlier chapters and melee unarmored enemies like crazy. Since the sword automatically freezes most enemies, it automatically smashes them as well.
