Ambrosia is on a quest from isabella i believe... Some1 i didnt recruit:'(

I think its ridiculous how some items only appear on certain quests and you have to do a whole different play-through to get them if you missed them.

I am almost done with my first playthrough. I missed 1-5 items in act one so i am screwed

I missed getting Ambrosia and still got the achievement. The achievement popped when I picked up a resource during Merril's final companion quest.

The ones I missed from act 1 and 2 showed up in one of the stores in the emporium, I was missing 4, three of them were in the store. Once buying those and was still missing one I realized I must be missing one from act 3, used this guide:

and found the last spindleweed I was missing, yay achievement. I have heard of people buying items from the emporium and it not working. I would hypothesize that this is from them having already gotten every item in act 3 and then buying the ones they missed. Try buying the ones you're missing and then collecting the last one you're missing in act 3 as I did.

My only other concern would be that the unique ingredients will not show in the emporium since they are one of a kind.

Apparently, if you do not have Isabela's friendship to a certain level by the end of Act II, she does not return and you cannot get her personal mission in act III, meaning no Ambrosia and no achievement.

Carful when recruiting Isabella I missed her by looting a body before shw told
me to in her recruiting quest and she got glitched by the chantry door so I had
to ignore her and go to the deep roads without her

Last spindleweed won't show up in the store and you can't travel to anywhere after you finished the game ... great :S

Comment #19 by k2natural
Thursday, March 17, 2011 @ 03:50:25 PM

There seems to be some confusion. Or perhaps I am the one that is confused. "Found every variety of crafting resources" implies that you only need to find at least one of each. Although from going through the game one time and the achievement not popping that is obviously not the case. However, the guide (, also show you where the recipes are located. Are the recipes needed for the achievement as well?

Comment #20 by SteelCity1492
Thursday, March 17, 2011 @ 05:56:37 PM

I have all crafting materials.....and no achievement popped...possibly another glitch

Comment #21 by gremlin2010
Friday, March 18, 2011 @ 04:52:24 PM

I got it as soon as I picked up the ingredient during Merrill's quest. I never got the Ambrosia because I sent Isabela packing. It may be glitched or you may simply not need the Ambrosia.

Comment #22 by Bl4ckSh33p
Saturday, March 19, 2011 @ 11:08:36 AM

Got the Achievement but never found Ambrosia. But I have 7 of 6 of another ressource. ;D

I Sware I got them all and nothing... So this must be glitched like the prince. DLC. =(

Comment #24 by bbogos01
Saturday, March 19, 2011 @ 10:32:56 PM

Its not glitched. The problem that everyone is having I think is with the Black Emporium. You must find every one of all 12 ingredients in the proper act. If you miss one in one act, move on to the next act and then purchase it at the Emporium you won't get the achievement. It will only pop if you FIND all the ingredients, not purchase. Some are tied to quests. for example, you can't get dragons blood unless you take on and kill the high dragon.

Comment #25 by SpidermanNoir
Saturday, March 19, 2011 @ 10:57:42 PM

ive found all the crafting items on 2 playthroughs and still have yet to get the damn thing. bioware really needs to patch this game soon cuz there are too many achievement bugs and quest bugs

Comment #26 by Opiate42
Monday, March 21, 2011 @ 10:37:31 AM

The quest bugs are the biggest pain I think and impact this one pretty bad. I was going for Supplier then Act of Mercy glitched on me and the location didn't appear on the map so I said bugger it and just played through, missed a few in other quests and then BAM, the location finally appeared long after I'd read the letter.

Buggering buggered bugger.

Next playthrough as a mage then...

Comment #27 by Opiate42
Monday, March 21, 2011 @ 10:39:20 AM

Well, at least it doesn't seem as painful as Treasure Hunter in FF13.

I just got the last variety that I needed, Fendralis or whatever and still no achievo ... wtf

Comment #29 by justG0Twicked
Monday, March 21, 2011 @ 06:03:09 PM

This only says every "variety" - it never says find "EVERY" crafting resource - I think that if you find at least one of each variety (the last one of each being the tough ones), it should pop. Or I sure hope so :/

Comment #30 by joeymac1994
Thursday, March 24, 2011 @ 03:22:01 PM

can someone tell me for sure if it is one of each resource or all of the resources in the game because im going threw my 3rd time and want to no i the one i missed of deathroot in act 1 will make me miss the achievement so i can just restart now

Comment #31 by spiral_fishcake
Thursday, March 24, 2011 @ 05:36:02 PM

There's an excellent guide for this on the forums:

#30: The one thing i wish it had was a road map of choices you have to make in order for this chievo to happen. For instance, you need to keep both Isabella and Anders through act 3 to have access. Finding them isn't the tough part: it's having access to the quests to allow you to harvest them.

Comment #32 by spiral_fishcake
Thursday, March 24, 2011 @ 05:38:06 PM

That said I really hate achievements that force most of your decisions for you. This is different than the mage-hunter or arcane defender, since no matter what you do through the game you will get one or the other.

Comment #33 by joeymac1994
Thursday, March 24, 2011 @ 11:01:00 PM

thank you # 31 i will use this guide

so i missed isabelle and cant get ambrosia i found that buying resources from black emporium is ok and wont void the cheevo but if i dont have isabelle am i SOL or can i get it without ambrosia

Comment #35 by I0Th0usandF1sts
Friday, March 25, 2011 @ 03:46:42 PM

ok everyone, i saw that a lot of people were having trouble with this achievement, so on my last playthrough i made a list of all the locations of all the resources in the game.the 1st thing you will need to do asap is recruit isabella, as having max friendship with her is vital and is easy to do this if you romance her and do not flirt with anyone else. Act 1 - ELFROOT - 2 at Sundermount, 2 at Wounded Coast, 1 at Sundermount Ambush Site and 1 at Bone Pit. SPINDLEWEED - 1 in Lowtown, 1 Slaver Cavern, 1 Wounded Coast. EMBRIUM - 1 at Dead Mans Pass. LYRIUM - 1 Bone Pit Mines, 1 Runaway's Cave, 2 in Deep Roads, 1 in Tal-Vashoth Cavern. SILVERITE - 1 at Vimmark Mountain Pass, 1 Deep Roads, 1 in Tal-vashoth Cavern, 1 Sundermount Caverns. ORICHALCUM - 1 Primeval Ruins (Deep Roads). DEEP MUSHROOM

Comment #36 by I0Th0usandF1sts
Friday, March 25, 2011 @ 03:53:00 PM

DEEP MUSHROOM - 1 in Slaver Cavern, 2 in Deep Roads, 1 at Sundermount, 1 at Bone Pit Mines. DEATHROOT - 1 in Darktown, 1 in Disused Passage (Docks at Night), 1 in Sanctuary. GLITTERDUST - 1 at Wounded Coast. That is EVERY resource in Act 1, i will post acts 2 and 3 on seperate posts so you all can find the act you need easier.

Comment #37 by joeymac1994

Comment #39 by JBenny5781
Tuesday, March 29, 2011 @ 09:08:53 PM

There are only 2 I have't gotten yet. Ambrosia and the one from Merrill's quest. According to the DA wiki page, I should have Ambrosia, if it told where it was correct. I grabbed the contents of the big silver chest from the Isabella mission, but there was no Ambrosia in there, or I didn't get credited for it. Dunno? I didn't read the wiki page until after I did that mission, so it's too late to go back. I haven't bought any crafting resources, so we'll see if I still pop this achievement once I get the final one from Merrill's quest.

Comment #40 by Gerin
Friday, April 01, 2011 @ 06:32:48 PM

Alright, just popped for me. Yes, you need every single resource (except maybe ambrosia, unsure, got it anyways). Yes, you can buy them from the Black Emporium if they're not the last ones you need. Good luck!

Comment #41 by Iggsy81
Sunday, April 03, 2011 @ 02:39:24 AM

It doesn't always work.. i've gotten them all (in fact 7/6 spindleweeds even) and it has never popped.. I've reloaded it and tried getting different ones last, etc.. i did buy some from the BE but then so did many others who got the chevo.. it's just a lucky dup.. waiting on a patch to fix it up, and hoping my save game just before i get the last one will then work, as i have every other chevo.

Comment #42 by justG0Twicked
Sunday, April 03, 2011 @ 09:30:16 AM

I recently finished a playthrough and had still not unlocked this particular cheevo, however, once the game was finished I went back to the Black Emporium and bought the 2 Spindleweeds that I had apparently missed, and it popped - it worked for me!

Comment #43 by CIKShock
Wednesday, April 06, 2011 @ 10:02:08 AM

On the 360 I can't seem to get this one to pop, though I know I missed a few in act one that I purchased in act 2, so I'm just betting this one is the case. I'm in the process of screen shotting the ones on the PC version, because I did happen to get it to pop for me then. Hopefully, I'll get it on the 360 on my next playthrough, but the spare time I had to play is just about gone :(.

Comment #44 by Atomic Gally
Sunday, April 10, 2011 @ 06:27:54 PM

right so can you buy resources you missed from the black emporium for the achiecvement to still work because i missed a lyrium in the slavers cavern during the wayward son for some reason the location where it is apparently meant to be all there was was a chest lol

Comment #45 by Young Teezy
Monday, April 11, 2011 @ 09:53:52 AM

let me get something straight.The achievement says every variety of crafting material meaning at least one of each or do you need to be X/X on all of them?

Comment #46 by Iggsy81
Wednesday, April 13, 2011 @ 07:21:30 AM

not one of each

every single thing in the whole game

and even then u are bloody lucky if u get it, trust me..

its glitched, still waiting on a patch

Comment #47 by DTO Yop
Wednesday, April 13, 2011 @ 01:18:32 PM

Ok, if my story can help.

I looked for every ingredients during my secound playtrough, but somehow, even with the Guide, i realize that i missed one Silverite. After reloading a previous save, i saw that it was one in Act I.
So i tried something. I loaded my automatic-save, made when the game is done.
I downloaded the DLC, went to the ingredient seller and saw the silverite i was missing.
Bought it, and bang, achievement unlocked.

Just need this game to fix the last achivement and i'm done with it :)

Friday, April 22, 2011 @ 11:46:29 AM

@47 Thanks for posting. I missed a few in the first act (purchased at the Black Emporium in act 2)... now I'm not so annoyed that I'll have to do another playthrough just for that achievement. (I'll probably do another one, anyway, but I don't want to have to follow a guide the entire time!)

Wednesday, April 27, 2011 @ 03:29:11 AM

isabella's act 3 quest can be glitched, just killed my game, all i need is ambrosia and i'm done, but as the quest has glitched, i'#m buggered.

just a word of warning, when starting act 3, go right to the hanged man, talk to isabella, then back to the estate to start her quest, o0therwise there is a chance you coulod end up in my boat having to start again.

all i got is isabella in the place she starts teh quest at (infront of the letter's desk in the house), but not starting her quest, only doing her one liners, so 3rd playthru for me just to get 1 cheevo :/ lol

Comment #52 by AD 20XX
Wednesday, April 27, 2011 @ 10:03:02 AM

BioWare has figured out the issue:

"(Good?) News! Due to a very helpful user who was able to provide me with some xbox saves I was able to track down the issue with Supplier. Apparently, when buying resources from The Black Emporium, if you EVER buy anything that's in a stack (>1) it will not count properly resulting in your achievement breaking. This includes trying to buy items in a stack 1 at a time. If there is only 1 on the shop, it will work just fine.

Again, the achievement fires when you reach 66 resources. So make sure if you're buying from TBE that you never buy anything that is in a stack. We're working on a solution now that we've pinpointed the problem."

Comment #53 by AD 20XX
Wednesday, April 27, 2011 @ 10:08:24 AM

So you CAN buy from The Black Emporium, you just can't buy more than one of the same resource after each act.

I missed a couple elfroots in the first act and bought them in the second, then found all the rest on my own. Surprise, the achievement didn't pop. The only achievement I need, so sad. I've started a second playthrough using a walkthrough ( so I can avoid buying them altogether. This is the only GUARANTEED way of getting the achievement at this point.

Comment #54 by Iggsy81
Saturday, April 30, 2011 @ 09:07:20 PM

I think you'll find it isn't a guarantee.. there are people who have also found every resource and the achievement has still not unlocked.. just read the patch 1.0.2 15_ oage thread and u will see... i know what Bioware said about that being the issue, but that isnt all.. that may be one of the issues with supplier, merely buying 1 resource will not necessarily work, as will finding them all.. as i said up there ^^ it is a lucky dip.. be warned if u are doing a playthrough just for this chevo, i have tried that myself and nothing.. so u cant be 100% sure u will get it even if u do everything meticulously

Comment #55 by Fifty One and 2
Tuesday, May 03, 2011 @ 05:48:29 PM

I tried this on two playthroughs. Once buying from Black Emporium and once without. Still no achievement.

Comment #56 by Memento Mori
Thursday, May 05, 2011 @ 03:08:33 PM

This just popped for me, even though I was expecting it not to. I was already in
Act 2 when I first went to the Black Emporium, and saw an elfroot there. I
actually checked I had everything from Act 2 by comparing what I had to what would
be left to find in Act 3, and was actually coming up with mismatches (i.e. I would
be two short with only one to find in Act 3).

I went to Act 3 though, and lo and behold, there was some stuff in TBE. However,
after buying it, I moved on with the game picking up everthing in the field. And
then it just popped for me when I got the glitterdust atop Sundermount.

Comment #57 by DrunkMonkey 247
Monday, June 06, 2011 @ 10:14:17 AM

I was missing one crafting Item! It never appeared in the BE either! Bit annoying, hope this achievement does not end up being as annoying as the traveller achievement from origins

Comment #58 by shyguysamurai
Monday, June 06, 2011 @ 01:14:36 PM

Having a heck of a time with this achievement. I hate achievements where you can't get them for missing something you can't go back for.

ok i know why everyone isnt getting the achievement! you know them herbalist quest... they are part of the achievement!!! make sure you do they and it should pop!!!(iron bark, little blue plant,ect...)

tell your friends, hope it pops

Comment #60 by TheKeeblaElf
Thursday, June 16, 2011 @ 08:37:55 PM

I just wanted to confirm. Loaded up a save tonight that was about 2 hours from the end. I saved all my black emporium ingredients till the very end of the game in case a fix like this happened. I bought all the ingredients 1 at a time and pick up a few around the world in act 3. I have 22 ingredients under each category totaling 66. Yet still no achievement. Do I have to start a whole new game? I thought the emporium stacking thing was fixed :(

Comment #61 by Mogglewump
Sunday, June 19, 2011 @ 04:59:08 AM

You also don't need to get Ambrosia for this achievement. Isobel left my part and I still got it when I found the Felandris.

Comment #62 by LotosAbstract
Saturday, June 25, 2011 @ 04:36:16 AM

After having to play through THREE times because of this damn cheevo... I can honestly say, I never want to play this game again...

Until there's new DLC :D

Comment #63 by Adeodattus
Friday, July 08, 2011 @ 11:24:43 AM

Do you need to collect all 66 ingredients? Or one pc for each kind is ok?

Comment #64 by MiloBloom47
Friday, July 08, 2011 @ 02:12:15 PM


I finally got it, with one patient cute thief! Yes, you have to get all 66 ingredients, but there is a small "out" if you miss out one of two of them.

You need to be Isabella's friend, and keep her from the Arishok to get Amborisa. For whatever reason, I wasn't able to trigger "A New Path" with Merille, although, it could be because I got to 100% rivalry.

So, I got the Ambrosia and the other 64 ingredients, save Ferlandais. I went to the Black Emporium, and I bought an extra Spindleweed which triggered the cheevo.

If I wasn't friends with Isabella, would the Emporium store another extra one to get the cheevo? I think so, but who knows?

Picked up everyone as I went along, Didnt use the emporium once, also it looks like you have to collect all 66 and not just one type of each. Hope this helps someone, stressed the hell outta me, looks like im gettin 1000g on first play through!

Thursday, July 28, 2011 @ 11:24:22 PM

I just got this and I didn't get the ambrosia that requires Isabela's quest to get. I would imagine it's because she left me for good which made me mad but not anymore since this just popped. Woot. Darth Dude 5: Good way to get banned from posting, just saying.

Comment #71 by SuperWoody64
Thursday, July 28, 2011 @ 11:25:55 PM

Oh also, I used the emporium to purchase 3 ingredients that I had missed. Just FYI.

Comment #72 by Fl4m3no1r
Friday, July 29, 2011 @ 01:53:13 AM

@66 I'm the complete opposite. Only got a handful of storyline achievements on my first playthrough. just finished my second playthrough and missed out on this one achievement because I didn't get Isabella's friendship high enough by the end of Act 2. I didn't buy the ingredients at the black emporium because I figured I didn't need them. Third playthrough here we go!

Comment #73 by SudnDeath
Thursday, August 04, 2011 @ 03:23:18 PM

Does the Supplier achievement require Torpal's Barrier Rune (think that's his name)
since it's not a recipe, just an item in our inventory. Actually, does it require any rune/potion. Or is it just for getting every single ingredient? To many conflicting responses in this forum. I'm doing Templar cheevo, and need to turn elf tranquil. but i will miss Torpals rune if i dont give him the elf.

Comment #74 by DeFFeR
Tuesday, August 16, 2011 @ 09:22:27 AM

This achievement pops when you have 66 total items (rune instructions, potion recipes, poison recipes.) Yes, it helps to follow a guide (achievement guide has a decent guide imbedded in the description for this achievement - even though some of it is flawwed).\

This just popped for me, and after following the guide, I still had one "item" left to obtain (the lyrium rune from Varric's Act III quest) - which I'm actually happy about because now I can put 4 runes in Bianca instead of 1.

So, I missed the Embrium in the place where you meet the dwarves for "black powder
request" or whatever it is called. And I do not have the DLC, which I assume is only if you have xbox live. So, will I ever be able to go to that place again?

Comment #78 by Golden Glic
Sunday, September 11, 2011 @ 04:45:56 PM

I agree this was indeed a pain in the ass. I started out by playing it trough just for the fun. Then i replayed it to get this achievement but released that i needed the pirate bitch with me so i had to replay it for a third time... i finally got it though.

I followed a guide to get the ingredients in act three getting them all not missing a single one I also got many from the previous 2 acts thinking any I miss I can get from the black emporium I go there buy all the one he has and no achievement :/

Comment #81 by FunkyStew632
Sunday, October 09, 2011 @ 12:31:58 AM

Now it's time for me to add to the confusion. I just got this achievement
literally 20min. ago. I missed 3 resources during Act 1 (1 deep mushroom,
1 lyrium, and 1 of something else.) When I got to Act 2, I bought what I had
missed at the BE. I got everything there was to get in Act 2. I got to Act 3
and I got everything except the one in the Isabella Quest and the one in the
Merrill Quest. I did the Isabella Quest and grabbed the Ambrosia, and BOOM,
the achievement popped without getting the one in the Merrill Quest. Well now,
there ya go. When I did my 1st play through, I found at least 1 of everything
and didn't buy anything in BE and nothing popped. I'm happy I got it, but with
my experience with it, something might be wrong with this achievo!

As a side note, the achievement popped for me before I did the Varric quest
in Act 3 were the house is haunted. Meaning I didn't have the rune you get
when the Enchantment Dwarf kid makes the lyrium into a rune. It appears to me
that you do not need all the runes, just the resources. Plus, I had the 7/6 on
the one resource when my achievement popped. Man ...... this achievo is a mess!

FINALLY got this after a 3rd playthrough and tons of headaches. got it right before going into the cave for Merrill's last quest about the mirror. i still had a couple items on my list when it popped, BUT i did buy some of the ingredients from the Black Emporium which i assume counter acted that. so everyone saying buying the ingredients doesnt work, well it worked for me. you have to make sure you find everything that you arent able to buy.

This just popped for me after collecting the 66th resource (some 7/6 etc. from BE). I know I don't have a couple of the one-offs like from Merril's quest yet, but it just seems to be a counter - find enough resources to account for every one in the main game (66 total).

In April on of the ppl from the dev posted that the BE items will work if you buy only the things that are NOT stacked. If there is only one in stock at BE, you can buy it. BUT, it cannot be the last item you need. the last thing has to be found. He posted that they would be trying to fix it, but i haven't seen anything anywhere dated later than that.

This could be why BE sometimes works and sometimes doesn't

BE works, just not very well. The Dragon Age wiki's got a list here:

It's pretty detailed, and even provides quest info for those unsure of which quests need to be done in order to unlock the areas that contain those harder to get resources. I think someone else already posted the wiki link, but it's here again for good measure. Enjoy and happy hunting!

This is definitely a Fail achievement on BioWare's part. They really need to study Bethesda and get collectable achievements right. Not only is it fail on the part that it is missable from Act to Act, but it is also missable within an Act if you pass over the item during a quest. Super fail BioWare...shame, shame.

just a confirmation for anyone going for this achievement. black emporium is NOT needed for this, easiest way is to take note of the ingredients and their placement in the game. just mark them off as you collect them and you should have no trouble.

Ya I just encountered the glitch as well. Not happy. 3rd time playing it in two weeks. Missed 2, wasn't a high enough friend with bella and now it didn't pop.

Hate this achievement. Missed a few on my first play through. Came back a few months later and started up a second play through and got hosed by the Isabella friendship/romance thing. So stopped halfway through Act 3 and I'm back to Act 1. Oh well, at least I got the mass exodus achievement but I really didn't want to play through this game 3 times. Ugh.

Such as poor achievement. I actually really liked the game but have tried this achievement 3 times on different playthroughs and every time it hasn't worked even when using the guide. So Buggy! Hopefully will work this one last time before Inquisition comes out!
