That's the one for importing a save from Origins.

The Guide says I can only import a completed save, but I was able to import a non-completed save.

Does anyone know if the save from Origins has to be completed to get the Epic achievement?

I'm unsure I got Epic because I had a completed save from Origins(I don't have any DLC for DA:O:o), but if I were to assume that since it let you import a save that you'll get the achievements still.

I got it with an incomplete save.

Beat the game not 10 minutes ago, hit the credits and the achievement popped right after the one for defeating Meredith

EDIT: To prevent further panty bunching, I've thrown the spoiler tag in there. It was my mistake in assuming that in a discussion thread about an achievement for beating the game (twice with one character or once with an imported character) that any references to the end of that actual game would be frowned upon. My sincerest apologies.

Did everyone know they could import a character? Is that a spoiler? Should I fix that one as well?

i beat the original but the game said my save was incomplete. as long as you can import the save you should be good

I thought I'd import my character that did all the DLC plus Awakenings, but the game told me the save was incomplete, so I went with the safer option and loaded the one from the end of Origins and bam, got it.

From the looks of it, people get it anyway, but with the way some achievements are bugged...

i imported my save from witch hunt(imported my origins save to awakening, then that save to a dlc until the save landed on witch hunt), said nothing about "incomplete save". Got it when i finished the game.

Imported my awakenings save, told me it wasn't complete, but I received the achievement when the credits rolled.

Hmm that is odd because when I completed the game with an incomplete save it didn't pop for me. That is why I wrote that in the guide so it must be glitched for some. I will have to change it then.

Yeah, this is pretty frustrating. I beat the game a second time tonight and did not get Epic. I don't have DA:O for 360 (went PC with that one) so no save to import atm.

I got epic achievement but I can't get the "Unstoppable" achievements. Didn't die at all in Act 3 and its a no-no. Won't pop.

Seems like it only works for people who imported a save. I beat the game a second time, just now, and no achievement popped. It, and the stupid Prince DLC which shows as fully completed on my BioWare profile, is all that's standing between me and a 100% completion for this buggy, obnoxious game that I really wanted to love. *sigh*

There are two achievement glitches here:

(1) Epic can't be obtained unless you import a DA: Origins save and beat the game from that.

AND

(2) Unstoppable isn't unlocking for some people on Act III so do it on Act I or II. It isn't hard because you can reload your last save if a party member gets knocked unconscious.

QFFT. In the exact same boat right here.

Got Epic, but not Unstoppable. But I can live with it, since I'll re-play this anyhow.

Did you import an Origins save game or did you start from scratch and beat it twice?

It was an imported save where I had finished everything, including Awakening and all DLC.

Ah, okay. That just reinforces the whole "it only works if you import first" thing. Thanks.

well with this confirmation we need Dev's to see. I'd just wish Dev's told you how active they are Tryarch

Wow, glad I'm still on my first run and am not caring too much about achievements at the moment seeing as how they seem to be so...troublesome. Hope they patch it up before I start my 2nd (or 3rd) run....
