What is unlockable and how to unlock them

Below is a list of things that are unlockable in ToME 4 and how to unlock them.

Those who wish to unlock all classes and races (including several 'unreleased' ones) immediately may do so by downloading zizzo's Ignore Race/Class Locks addon and adding it to their /Game/Addons folder: http://te4.org/games/addons/tome/ignore-raceclass-locks

Races

  • Undead (Skeletons and Ghouls)
    • Kill The Master in Dreadfell to unlock one undead subrace, selected at random. (Kill him again with a diffrerent character to unlock the other.)
  • Ogre
    • Find Director Hompalan on the third floor of the Ruined Halfling Complex. He only appears if the Old Conclave Vault has been chosen to appear this game. In each game, only one out of Dogroth Caldera, the Sludgenest, the Old Conclave Vault, and (if Forbidden Cults is enabled) the Scourged Pits will appear. This is chosen randomly, unless you are a Shalore and have not yet unlocked Ogres, in which case the Old Conclave Vault will always be chosen. He will drop lore titled "order for Director Hompalan". This will reveal the Old Conclave Vault on the world map to the south east.
    • Enter the Old Conclave Vault. This dungeon scales from levels 20 to 30. Find Healer Astelrid on the 4th floor, kill her, and collect the lore she drops to unlock Ogres.
  • Krog (Forbidden Cults DLC)
    • Quest in Last Hope with a level 17+ Antimagic Character. Ogre must be unlocked to receive the quest. All four captive Krogs must survive.

Classes

  • Adventurer (Adventurer meta class)
    • Complete any story campaign - either "Maj'Eyal: the Age of Ascendancy" or "Embers of Rage". Note that completing Embers will unlock it in the main campaign, but will not unlock it in Embers itself unless you have already defeated the Internment Camp three times to unlock all main-campaign classes in Embers.
  • Cursed (Afflicted meta class)
    • Complete the quest "The beast within" which starts on the world map north of Last Hope.
  • Demonologist (Defiler meta class) (Ashes of Urh'Rok DLC)
    • Start in Searing Halls. You can do this as a Doomelf or as a non-undead Doombringer.
    • Beginning at level 18 you have a chance to be re-abducted by the demons each time you use your Rod of Recall, bringing you to the Anteroom of Agony. Witnessing the zone boss, Rogroth, Eater of Souls revive something as a husk will complete the unlock.
      • The chance of this happening when you recall is 15% at level 18 and scales to 90% at level 27.
  • Gunslinger (Tinker meta class)
    • Automatically unlocked in Embers of Rage.
    • To use in the classic Age of Ascendancy, Infinite Dungeon, and Arena campaign(s) defeat Outpost Leader John with any two (2) tinker classes.
  • Marauder (Rogue meta class)
    • Do over 600 damage in one hit as a Rogue or Shadowblade. Counts only for individual components of damage, not total damage.
    • This unlock is tied to an achievement and thus cannot be obtained on Easier mode.
  • Oozemancer (Wilder meta class)
    • Find the Sludgenest and defeat the Corrupted Oozemancer. Note that in each game, only one out of Dogroth Caldera, the Sludgenest, the Old Conclave Vault, and (if Forbidden Cults is enabled) the Scourged Pits will appear. This is chosen randomly, unless you are a Thalore and have not yet unlocked Oozemancer, in which case the Sludgenest will always be chosen.
  • Paradox Mage (Chronomancer meta class)
    • Get killed by your future self in Daikara, playing as a Temporal Warden.
    • Note: if you you just press '5' and wait for your future self to win the fight you will miss out on an artifact bow that goes well with Temporal Warden. You can bring your future self down to half health, defeat the optional boss and then get defeated by your future self if you want said artifact bow.
  • Possessor (Psionic meta class)
    • Be a donator (and be online when starting the game).
  • Psyshot (Tinker meta class)
    • To unlock in Embers of Rage, explore the old ruins in the Eruan desert after you have completed the You Shall Pass! quest, and hand in the first yeti tissue sample to the Old Psi-Machine as part of the Mystery of the Yetis quest.
    • To use in the classic Age of Ascendancy, Infinite Dungeon, and Arena campaign(s) defeat Outpost Leader John with any two (2) tinker classes.
  • Reaver (Defiler meta class)
    • Kill 1,000 humanoids (counts over multiple games). You can check the progress of this unlock under the Reaver achievement.
    • This unlock is tied to an achievement and thus cannot be obtained on Easier mode.
  • Sawbutcher (Tinker meta class)
    • Automatically unlocked in Embers of Rage.
    • To use in the regular classical Age of Ascendancy, Infinite Dungeon, and Arena campaign(s) defeat Outpost Leader John with any two (2) tinker classes.
  • Skirmisher (Rogue meta class)
    • Counterstrike an enemy from a distance of 5 (or more ?) squares away. Can be achieved by blocking a ranged attack then shooting the attacker, blocking up close and quickly getting far enough away to then shoot, or many other methods. Using Rush will not work as you are no longer the required number of squares away when you strike. Note: It can also be unlocked because an enemy fulfilled the condition, without you having to do anything - this is probably a bug.
  • Solipsist (Psionic meta class)
    • Complete both dreams in Dogroth Caldera, either by timer or by using the altar. Note that in each game, only one out of Dogroth Caldera, Sludgenest, the Old Conclave Vault, and (if Forbidden Cults is enabled) the Scourged Pits will appear. This is chosen randomly, unless you are a Yeek and have not yet unlocked Solipsist, in which case Dogroth Caldera will always be chosen.
    • This unlock is tied to an achievement and thus cannot be obtained on Easier mode.
  • Stone Warden (Wilder meta class)
    • As a member of the Dwarf metarace (a Dwarf or Drem), have at least 10 raw levels of spell talents, and at least 10 raw levels of nature talents. Note that runes and taints are spell talents, and infusions are nature talents. This class must be played as a Dwarf or Drem.
  • Summoner (Wilder meta class)
    • See a character use the talent Summon (Honey Tree in Trollmire / Old Forest is your earliest bet). Other summoning talents do not count.
  • All non-Tinker, non-Warrior classes in Embers of Rage
    • Initially, you will only be able to create Tinkers and Warriors in Orcs: Embers of Rage. The first time you complete the Internment Camp, you will randomly either unlock the Mage or Rogue metaclass for use in Embers of Rage. (You can play as the classes from that metaclass that you have already unlocked in the main ToME campaign, as well as ones you unlock in the future.) The next time you complete it on a new character, you will unlock the other metaclass out of Mage and Rogue. The third time you complete it on a new character, you will unlock all the metaclasses (that you have unlocked in the main campaign) for use in Embers of Rage.
  • Technomancer (Archmage class evolution)
    • As an Archmage, have at least 16 generic points put into talents in the physics and chemistry trees. Then craft tinkers until you get the unlock.
      • This can be done in the main AoA campaign, but you'll have to luck into a tinker escort to do it.
      • In Embers, these categories are purchasable with gold from the start in Kruk Pride.
  • High Thaumaturgist (Archmage class evolution)
    • As an Archmage, kill a level 10+ Boss using only "beam" talents (this does not include Chain Lightning).
  • Fallen (Sun Paladin class evolution)
    • As a Paladin, do at least one of the following: Kill a hate-using enemy while having the Sun's Vengeance buff from the Sun's Vengeance talent OR sacrifice High Sun Paladin Aeryn (in Age of Ascendancy) OR Destroy Crimson Templar John (in Embers)
      • It can also be unlocked because another character killed a hate-using enemy while having the Sun's Vengeance buff. This is possibly a bug.
      • Each Paladin who wants to take the evolution in the Age of Ascendancy campaign will have to commit at least one heinous act: siding with the Grand Corruptor to destroy Zigur, winning the fight in the Ring of Blood, killing your own escort, letting every lumberjack die, letting Melinda be sacrificed, or starting the Trapped! quest but not saving the merchant.
  • Avatar of a Distant Sun (Sun Paladin class evolution)
    • As a Sun Paladin, there is a 1/5 chance to unlock every turn you are in combat in a zone that is in orbit.

Talent Trees

Campaigns

Items

Cosmetic Options

Cosmetic options can be chosen by pressing the "Customize" button when creating a new character. You must be a donator to use cosmetic customization. The following unlocks add extra cosmetic options. Unlockable class features are also chosen via the Customize button, so they are also donator-only, but they are counted as "other" unlocks instead of "cosmetic" when counting unlocked options on the Character Creation screen. Unlike other cosmetic options, class features have gameplay impacts.

  • Redhead
    • Save Melinda in the Dark Crypt to unlock the redhead birth option for humans, elves, halflings and dwarves.
  • Female Dwarf Beards
    • Defeat The Mouth in The Deep Bellow as a female dwarf to unlock the bearded female dwarf.
  • Demon Horns
    • Unlocked when anyone uses the Demonologist talent Demon Horns to kill something. Despite the description of the unlock popup, it does not have to be you who does it - this is probably a bug.
  • Red Skin
    • Have five demon seeds equipped at once as a Demonologist.
  • Sawtree custom tile (Embers of Rage DLC)
    • Kill the Sawtree. Unlike other unlocks, this has no notification.

Achievement-locked Prodigies

These Prodigies each require a certain achievement to have been achieved. These Prodigies will only be unlocked for the difficulty and permadeath setting where their required achievement was earned, unlike other unlocks, which can be used on other settings than they were unlocked on. (If an achievement is earned on a difficulty and permadeath setting, it will also be earned on all combinations of equal or lower difficulty and permadeath settings.)

These unlocks are implemented differently than other unlocks, so they are not counted in the unlocks count on the character creation screen.

Other

  • Zigur Betrayal
    • Read the signpost at the entrance to Zigur to enable all new qualifying characters (i.e. those without runes or magic talents) to betray escorts to Zigur.
  • Insane Difficulty
    • Win the game in Nightmare difficulty to unlock the even harder Insane difficulty. You have to win a story campaign (either the main ToME campaign or Embers of Rage); winning the arena mode in Nightmare difficulty will not unlock Insane. However, once you have Insane difficulty unlocked, it will be available for all other game modes as well.
  • Madness Difficulty
    • Win the game in Insane difficulty to unlock the uber-hard Madness difficulty. You have to win a story campaign (either the main ToME campaign or Embers of Rage); winning the arena mode in Insane difficulty will not unlock Madness. However, once you have Madness difficulty unlocked, it will be available for all other game modes as well.
