I have the achievement as well, and I can say there are some crafting ingredients that don't seem to match up like the corrupt lyrium and raw lyrium

Idk, i'm forced to think it's just semantics at that point. I could be perfectly wrong though.

Thanks for the guide, been a good help but I'm in the camp where I'm getting mis-matched numbers.

Like by the end of act II there's an extra Deathroot in my inventory.
Apparently I also missed a Silverite from act I but then I check the inventory thing and it actually matches up to what there should be.

Is there any chance each game varies slightly?

Raw Lyrium does add to the count just like if it only says Lyrium, just checked that on my 3rd playthrough, where these maps show Lyrium in the Bone Pit Mines I had a raw lyrium, and it was the first lyrium I'd come across on this playthrough. Going straight from there to Gamlen's house and checking the craft runes station it does show 1 Lyrium. However, going from observations on my first 2 playthroughs, even though corrupted lyrium says it's a crafting resource when you find it, it doesn't actually add to the count.

You can also get the rune of lightning design in Act 1 in the Blooming Rose in a chest in one of the kitchen rooms, on the right side of the building.

strat guide says Act1 and i was able to purchase it.... Double checked, and confirmed on my games (PC and xbox) that i am able to purchase Design: Rune of Frost from Lirene's Fereldan Imports as soon as you are able to travel to lowtown in Act1.

Is it possible that you missed it during act1 and got it in act2?

Anyone know if I can get all the ingredients without having fenris or isabella? Isabella glitched out. Kinda worried now that that my 3rd playthrough will have to be another complete one again, if this is the case.

Nope, you can't get Ambrosia without Isabella.


On that note, OE, a small suggestion for the guide: right at the start it might be an idea to mention that you need to maintain a good relationship with Isabella in order to obtain an ingredient later on. So keep visiting her and talking to her, etc.
(Maybe warn of spoilers although putting it like that cuts down on them a little. Just that's what completely screwed me over in Act III was that I guess I never paid enough attention to her and she buggered off at the end of Act II.)


EDIT: I was putting together an ingredients list for myself and I added some notes that might be useful if you want to add them to each act heading, feel free, if not, fair enough.

Really all these are are the missable quests that you will need to do for ingredients. (I left out the main story ones since you can't really miss picking the quest up.)


Act I

Secondary quest - "The Bone Pit" [Interior and exterior. Complete 'Birthright', 'Bone Pit' letter arrives.]
Aveline - companion quest - "The Way It Should Be" [Complete main quest 'A Friend in the Guard'.]

Act II

Side quest - "Cave Crawling" [Complete 'Inside Job', travel to Bone Pit and talk to Jansen.]
Anders - companion quest - "Dissent" [Complete 'Blackpowder Courtesy'.]
Fenris - companion quest - "A Bitter Pill." [Travel outside Kirkwall with him in your party to obtain.]
Merrill - companion quest - "Mirror Image" [Complete 'Blackpowder Courtesy'.]
Side quest - "Forbidden Knowledge" [Will find 'Evil Tomes' in various places. Specifically 'Wounded Coast' and 'Bone Pit'.]

Act III

Isabella - companion quest - "No Rest for the Wicked" [Must have in party and have 50% complete friend/quests.]
Anders - companion quest - "Justice" [Complete ‘Check on Anders’ {mini-companion}, travel to clinic with him in party.]
Merrill - companion quest - "A New Path" [Complete ‘On the Loose’ {Main} and ‘A Talking To’ {mini-companion}.]

Finally, this got stickied. Great work on the guide, very easy to follow and hopefully it will work out for me, even though I missed 1 lyrium in act 1 so Ill have to buy it in the Black Emporium.

I think there is an errors in description of Deep Mushroom during Act 2.

Deep Mushroom Gallows Dungeon (Blackpowder Courtesy) I think you get to visit Gallows Dungeon during the "Dissent" quest not Blackpowder Courtesy.

Also, are you sure about Orichalcum in the Deep Roads?

Um.... there's something missing in Act II lists that I encounter so far.

There's Deathroot in Bone Pit, but the list you had do not say so. Also, I was not able to found the Deathroot in Holding Caves.

For Orichalcum, I was unable to found it in Deep Cave (unless it was inside the Treasure with Complexity).

PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong, but that is the missing problem I encounter in Act 2.

I just wanna say that on the map, in Act 3, for Wounded Coast, you left out an Embrium or whatever it's called. It's right next to the western exit. Can't miss it.

Edit: I would also like to say that you definitely don't need that rune from the demon in the fade in order to get the achievement. I missed getting that because I didn't notice it in the writing, and eventually only started focusing on the maps; and I still got the achievement.

That aside, I would like to thank you for making this guide. The actual guide book is all kinds of wrong with the ingredients section. So this was a big help.

So I can't access the holding caves because I didn't recruit Fenris. WHY didn't get the guide mention this??? Now I'm going to have to do another playthrough!

Yes, the official guide is off big time when it comes to where the resources are located.

I found all of them and wrote them down by Act, so I could help others.

Act II: Deathroot - Darktown, Holding Caves (A Bitter Pill)

I can't find it anywhere in the Holding Caves area, and you have it marked on the map as being in The Bone Pit instead.

Goddamnit!

I think it is worth adding that if you want to get all the ingredients YOU MUST HAVE FENRIS JOIN YOU IN ACT ONE!

I decided to do my crafting achievements on my second playthrough after having spent over 60 hours exploring all the quests on my first. I am now 11 hours in, finding Act 2 ingredients and now I realise that I cannot access a map specific to a quest that only appears if you have Fenris.

I now want to kill myself, this is one of the only achievements I'm missing!!
