The “Old protector” achievement is one of four hidden trophies in A Plague Tale: Requiem, which can easily be missed if you don’t interact with all the required items in the Sanctuary in Chapter IX, during the “Phoenix” section. This guide will tell you exactly how to earn the “Old Protector” achievement, one of A Plague Tale: Requiem’s four gold trophies on PS5.
The Four Rooms
In order to earn the trophy, players will have to interact with 16 items across four different rooms. There are four items in the first room, four items in the second room, six items in the third room, and two items in the final, upstairs section.
The first room contains the following four items:
Item 1 – Horse
Item 2 – Tent
Item 3 – Bed
Item 4 – Bowling Pins/Dolls
Once you have interacted with all of these items, move on to the next room.
The second room contains the following four items:
Item 5 – Armor
Item 6 – Weapons
Item 7 – Toy Box
Item 8 – Artwork
Once you have interacted with all of these items, move on to the third room.
After a stroll through the courtyard section and seeing the phoenix artwork, you will enter a third room that contains six items to interact with. Start moving through the room in a counter-clockwise direction to the right. The items are as follows:
Item 9 – Alchemical Equipment
This item can be found directly to the right, after entering the third room.
Item 10 – More Alchemical Equipment
This item can be found directly to the right at the far end of the room after entering.
Item 11 – Even More Alchemical Equipment
This item can be found by moving counter-clockwise from Item 11.
Item 12 – Desk items
Item 13 – More Alchemical Equipment
This item is found in the far back left corner of the third room.
Item 14 – Macula Carrier Examination Bed
Hugo will call you over, after examining the five peripheral items, the final item in the room is this bed.
Final Room, Upstairs
To get upstairs and reach the final section, you have to go through a curtain in Room Three, which hides a staircase.
Upon descending the staircase, you can find the final two items, but make sure you’ve collected all of the items before you speak with Sophia. They are as follows:
Item 15 – Observation Floor
Item 16 – Scroll
At the back left corner of the room, the scroll can be found, it is the final item needed for the trophy.
Once you have collected all sixteen items, the achievement is yours, and you will find yourself one step closer to earning the Platinum trophy in A Plague Tale: Requiem.
