This is supposed to pop once you clear the "Duty" quest, no? I completed the quest, but no achievement. Glitched, perhaps?

Does anyone know when this is supposed to unlock? Ive killed all the mercenaries as part of the Duty quest line. The way it reads I figured that was all you had to do. Before anyone says anything, YES, the Exiled Prince achievements appear on my achievements list and when looking at the game from the dashboard it says 55 achievements for 1130.

Bioware somewhat confirmed that even though the Exiled Prince achievements are upp they are not unlocking. So hold on until you hear the clear from Bioware. Visit their forums for more info:

they work now, they had to be added to if you haven't already you have to recover your gamertag and re-get the achievements.

yea, disregard my previous post @#5, just recovered account and completed "Duty" and still nothing, Bioware has to add them on their end i guess. Oh well.

Thanks for clarifying Solo. I was going to be pissed if I had to recover my account.

It's glitched for god's sake as a couple before you said already. Which means patch time. Which means at least 2 weeks.

do you really have to recover your Gamertag? Can't you just re-do the achievement?

Comment #13 by TomTom020
Tuesday, March 15, 2011 @ 05:34:47 AM

no to sound rude of anything but the above comments clearly state that the
achievements are currently are NOT unlocking when you do the quests or via
recovering you account, just gonna have to hold out til the patch comes down!

I recovered mine and started a second play through, still no unlock for DLC. There is a Bioware forum about but they've said nothing of worth other than that they know it's happening.

Comment #16 by Vyper08
Tuesday, March 15, 2011 @ 08:22:12 PM

Alright, for people who don't already realize it, there's NO way to unlock the achievements for Sebastian UNTIL Bioware comes out with a PATCH.

So, Basically I spent 80$ on preordering the game only to have the preorder dlc refuse to unlock achievements and even the original 50 has more glitches than any other game ive played, I wont be buying Dragon age 3

Comment #18 by acidrain1628
Wednesday, March 16, 2011 @ 10:21:35 PM

This is really unfortunate. I hope the achievements will somehow retroactively activate after the patch is applied. The same goes for the original 50 retail cheevos.

Comment #19 by MR CHEWYNumNums
Thursday, March 17, 2011 @ 10:52:35 PM already failed when you paid $80...I only paid $64...what random store swindled you?!

To finish my post's not Bioware, because if you have a profile on Bioware social network you can clearly see that the achievements are unlocked on their end thus meaning an issue with Microsoft. So I also say to you #17..not buying DA3 isn't going to "punish" the right person.

Monday, March 21, 2011 @ 03:09:28 PM

It's Microsofts fault, just like with DA:O if they don't put up the achievements the same time bioware does it breaks them. Its exactly the same as the golems lament and wardens keep dlc. Just wait it out cause microsoft failed to update when they were supposed to. Hopefully they will just retro reward them to us just like the first game.

They have officially re-released The Exiled Prince. Go to your Settings, Memory, and delete the current one you have installed. Then, re-download it to your system. Boot up your old saves, or start a new game, and the achievements will unlock properly.

I just tried this and it didn't work.

to all those that are complaining that this achievement (and others) are glitched, bioware have announced that the achievements have been patched (background update) and now you will be able to get them :) but you will have to delete the DLC from your harddrive in the memory, and then redownload it :)

Comment #30 by TKS Boseinator
Wednesday, March 23, 2011 @ 06:57:04 AM

oh and either load one of your saves or start the whole game again :) and do it from the start :) xD

i would sugest starting a new game because i tried loading one of my saves and the achievements didnt start up :) got them once i went through the whole thing again :)

Comment #31 by Craigpfc7
Wednesday, March 23, 2011 @ 07:16:35 PM

I just loaded up an old save after re-downloading the content and the achievement popped up just fine. :)

I tried this as well and got it to work. I deleted the original DLC and re-downloaded it. It popped as it should have the first time I downloaded it.

Thursday, March 24, 2011 @ 05:34:05 PM

after reloading the dlc do i have to get them again or will they all just pop?

Comment #34 by FuriousAli007
Friday, March 25, 2011 @ 10:22:29 AM

But what If you got the DLC from the signature addition ? how are you suppose to
reinstall the DLC ?

I don't see why bioware can just put up an automatic patch.

Comment #35 by Muscledkenneth
Friday, March 25, 2011 @ 01:49:33 PM

I have the signature edition and its real easy, just delete the exiled prince from your harddrive, then go to marketplace and re-download it ; D

I deleted the dlc and redownloaded it. The achievements still didn't pop when I reloaded reloaded my saved game. I guess I have to hope they pop on my next playthrough.

So, these don't unlock retroactively? I have to replay everything?

Comment #48 by Jonspach

That sometimes happens after an update to the list. Delete & start the checklist from scratch and everything should be fine.

Comment #50 by randallm33
Sunday, October 30, 2011 @ 08:07:20 AM

Having the same issue. If you click all as complete it will not count the 'Retribution' achievement and it says you are missing 30 GS instead of 25 GS. When the Assassin DLC came out it messed this up. The secret achievement for the new DLC is checked in stead of this one when you try to click 'Retribution' as done.

I downloaded the Exiled Prince pack on day one and never got any of the achievements after completing the entire questline. Should have had the whole set, but like many other people, didn't get the achievement to pop. Just picked it back up yesterday, and did these with a new character, and they seem to work just fine now. Most recent title update must have taken care of the glitch. Might help anyone who had this problem before.

Comment #53 by Shinkou79
Monday, May 21, 2012 @ 09:43:57 AM

Anyone figure out how to get this achievement to stay checked? This game is the only game that I have 100% of achievements for so I'd like to be able to select them all here.
