Dragon Age: Origins Achievements


Sided with the elves in "Nature of the Beast"

To begin this quest, go to the Brecilian Outskirts and speak to the Dalish Elves. Head into the Brecilian Forest. You'll be attacked by combinations of wolves, werewolves, bears, Darkspawn, and trees. Yes, trees. Find the Grand Oak and it'll ask (yes, ask) you to find it's acorn that was taken by a mad hermit mage. When you the hermit, you'll have to play his game. You can't attack him and take it. You have to play along. When you catch him, he'll offer you the acorn in a trade. Return it to the Grand Oak, and you'll be provided with a way to reach Witherfang. Make your way through the ruins to the werewolves.

When you reach the end of the ruins, you will be asked to return with Zathrian to negotiate. Side with Zathrian when asked and wipe out the werewolves.

i managed to get this without killing anyone (even though that doesn't sound much fun lol) i agreed with the warewolves to talk to the "lady" and then to bring Zathrian to her to talk, after they spoke i refused to help him kill the warewolves, after a short battle i then convinced him to end there curse and saved bothsides and this achievement unlocked :) im not sure why it didn't give both as i sided with the warewolves really to help them end there curse but also helped the elves get rid of the warewolves but hay im not greedy :D

Note: Slayer requires your main to have the coercion skill maxed (all 4 boxes).

Save before you talk to the Lady of the Forest in the ruins and run the conversation to side with either the elves (Poacher) or werewolves (Slayer). Once you've gotten the cheev, reload and run the conversation the other way.

I just kinda hacked at him and abused potions, and eventually when his health was lowered enough he begged for mercy. :)

One main staple in this game is to set you tactic slots! Always have one for when their own health drops below 25% to use a health poultices so you don't have to switch around too much between characters. I always have a healer(heals, imbues weapons) a tank(all attack and stun capability), and a ranged (usually a rouge) who takes out distant mages and archers. The game plays itself.

This achievement is bullshit. I did everything Zathrian asked me to do killed werewolves like 5 times, and still no chievo.
