Umbral Adept is an achievement in Lords of the Fallen (2023) that rewards players for going down the Umbral Spell route. The achievement is worth 10 points, and is actually slightly easier than the Inferno Spell achievement, Inferno Adept, and the Radiant Spell achievement, Radiant Adept, because there is 1 less spell in the Umbral pool.
Collect All Umbral Spells
The only requirement to complete Umbral Adept is that you collect every Umbral Spell in the game. Currently, there are 19 Umbral Spells to collect, which is one less than the Inferno and Radiant spell pool. It’s unclear why there are only 19 Umbral Spells, but this actually works to your advantage if you’re achievement hunting!
After you collect every Umbral Spell, you will complete Umbral Adept and earn 10 points/a bronze trophy, depending on the console that you play on.
