Q: Are there any achievements that can be missed after completing the story / specific task?
A: No, all achievements can be easily obtained after completing the main story in free-roam without fear to skip any achievement. Even this would be easier because you will have access to all spells which are necessary for many puzzles. Achievements #2-5 are an exception. you need to create a new game, but this can be completed quickly enough.

Q: Does difficulty affect achievements?
A: No, you can do everything on the easiest difficulty “Story”.

Q: How long does it take to get 100% completion?
A: ~80 hours if you do not skip cutscenes and do not speedrun.
