View Full Version : DLC Achievements - Not on Xbox.com

So apparently there are four DLC achievements (two for The Stone Prisoner and two for Warden's Keep), but they are not listed on Xbox.com

Now, the reason I made a topic about this is because when this happens, you can get the achievements fine in-game, but they don't add to your gamerscore. When they finally upload the achievements, you have to recover your gamertag, and re-achieve the glitched DLC ones.

Although I've seen this happen many times (Prince of Persia Epilogue and Brotherhood of Steel pop into my mind immediately), I want to know if this is the case here.

I don't believe they're glitched - I haven't gotten them, but they show up on my list and say how many points they're worth. The achievements weren't even on my list (I had DL'd Warden's Keep before owning the game) until I signed in to xbox Live, they wouldn't have been there otherwiswe.

I doubt they're glitched - anyone having problems?

Im more worried about the fact that It doesnt say Ive purchased the stone prisoner.

They don't show! I have unlocked actually 145 points, but it shows as only 95 in the dashboard.

How do I do that?

i can confirm the gamerscore and achievements don't show up once they're obtained except for in-game. i just earned one in warden's keep and when i check achievements it says i've only unlocked 8 instead of 9 and the score does not increase. if you actually view the list of achievements, the one i just earned appears as unlocked. what a bunch of crap.

Yeah noticed the Achievements do show on my tag but the gamer score did not add to my tag at all when finishing the warden DLC last night. Lucky I saved right before getting the Achievement yay for dumb luck I guess.

Figures. This is why I hate DLC achievements, this crap always happens. It's a good thing I had extra saves in Fallout 3 or else I would have had to play through the entire game for a third time (2nd time was just for fun though).

There is no way to "fix" it. Even when they address the issue, there is no retroactive way to add the points to your gamerscore - you have to recover your gamertag and redo all of the DLC achievements you've already unlocked.

So.... the best solution is to avoid getting the DLC achievements until they patch this? Ugh... The recover gamertag may work too, at least you can accomplish 1/2 of the DLC achievements early on in the game. Sounds like it may be a second or third playthrough attempt.

Sorry to hear about this, but i'll be staying away from any DLC until a fix is implemented.

i really wish i would have read this post before doing the shale quest...i just got shale..got my ach...then looked on here to see what the other dlc ach was for shale...and then i look at my gamerscore after reading this and it didnt add on...what a bunch of crap..whyd they even add them on if you cant even get the points?....i have a save right before getting him..but dont think thats gonna do me much good..i guess i wont be using him..just in case the secret ach is kill X amount of enemies with shale or something....

Couldn't you alternately just delete all your save information and clear the cache?

Yea glad i didnt read this thread until i did both of the DLC things, i got 3 of the 4 achievements and it didnt count towards my total score or my gamerscore, so once they patch it i gotta do the dlc again? Eh guess its not a big deal im probably gonna do 2 play thrus or more anyways.

What do you mean recover your gamertag? I got the shale achievement. So will I have to start a new game to get it again after recovering my gamertag?

I can confirm that they will not unlock after you got them, and then recovered your GT. Well at least not until another playthrough. I got the Wardens Keep achievements they never showed up. on live. So I recovered my GT, and they were gone. So I played the Warden's keep again, and the achievements did not unlock for me. At least i will be able to get the shale achievements on this playthrough. I planned to play a new game under every origin so I guess I will unlock them with a new playthrough if it isn't glitched.

So summary:

Achievements will not unlock if you recover your GT, and get rid of them. At least on your current playthrough. I think this may have to do with the EA servers.

Well, you need to wait for Xbox.com to actually have the achievements before you recover your gamertag, otherwise the exact same thing will happen.

It'll get sorted at some point. I wanted to play the DLC content as it sounded interesting thus I played it and recieved 2 achievements that dont show up on xbox.com yet. That's fine. I can play it again if needed. It's really not that big of a deal.

This is a pain in the ass.Could anyone be so kind as to list the achievements and roughly when they are obtained so I those that got the game today or tomorrow could make a backup save? I for one would be most grateful.

I can't remember the exact names of the achievements. You have to actively seek the DLC out, so it shouldn't be to hard to avoid.

There is a trader in your camp (can't remember his name) that gives you a sob story about his families fall from grace and wants you to escort him to Soldier's Peak. Soldier's Peak will show up in the North Eastern part of your Map in the mountains. That is for the Warden's Keep DLC. So just avoid following that quest.

The Stone Prisoner DLC will put a quest in your log telling you to seek out a trader that has an offer to good to refuse. The trader will ask you to go to the village Honnleath, it is located on the West side of the map (pretty much in the middle). So you could just avoid going there as well.

I guess you could go do parts of the quest and just not complete the DLC for the main quest achievements.

Spoilers:






But I did not get the secret achievement for the Stone Prisoner DLC so I don't know what specifically you would have to do to avoid getting it.

However on the Warden's Keep DLC you will find a vial of blood in the keep. If you drink the vial you will get the secret achievement for the Grey Wardens DLC

Thanks for such a detailed description mate.That was perfect and I now know which to avoid and do at a later date.Muchas gracias.

Update for folks still keeping up with this:

The DLC achievements are now up on xbox.com, so, hopefully the troubles will be cleared up. I say hopefully, because I had already obtained three of these achievements and I'm worried that, because I had technically already unlocked them, they won't unlock again (even after recovering my gamertag and doing the quests all over with a different character). Since I don't have a save state before doing these quests, I guess it's a "wait and see what happens" thing. Unless someone on here has any other info.

I DO have a save right before drinking the potion (Wardens Keep cheev). I'll let you know in five minutes if they work or not now, because I've already recovered my GT (hence, deleting the glitched ones).

And the answer is... no! :(

At least, for the same character. Loaded my save, drank potion, no achievement. No achievement listed in my profile at all after a gamertag recovery. This was what I feared would happen.

Next test, to create a new character and get back to that point.

Thanks for trying Komrade. I figured as much. I will be very disappointed if a new character playthrough results in the same thing (which I figure is the most likely outcome; crossing my fingers it isn't). It is going to drive me insane knowing that i've obtained these damn things but i'll still have to look at the little "locked" icon and never have all the achievements because they couldn't wait a week to release the DLC.

Your name is familiar to me. Kotaku?
