Dragon Age: Origins Achievements


Sided with the Cult of Andraste in "The Urn Of Sacred Ashes"    

Towards the end of your search for the Urn to heal the Arl, you'll come across the Cult of Andraste. After fighting hordes of them, you'll meet one of them who wants to talk. He'll offer you the chance of helping the Cult and still being able to heal the Arl. Accept his offer and continue on to find the ashes.

Whatever you do, DO NOT hit the gong. You won't be able to win the fight that comes until later in the game.

To unlock this achievement, choose this option when given:
*Note: Manually save before you enter the room with the altar with fire behind it.

-[Pour the dragon's blood into the Urn.]

I recommend unlocking this achievement, then revert back to your previous save,
because Leliana and Wynne are 2 of your most important party member.

Of course you can. I did, and I'm sure plenty of other people have also.

I was even in a relationship with Leliana, and had her approval rating at full when I poured the Dragon's Blood in, and she still turned on me. Sucks for her- like anyone could stand against me... ~_^

Go in without Wynne or Leliana(they will turn on you), take some ashes, pour blood on the ashes to get the Cult on your side otherwise when you leave they will confront you. When they see you've poured the blood on the ashes they will give you some of Andraste's dragon-form blood to drink, this will unlock Reaver specialization. Then you may turn on the Cult and take their stuff, whack the gong and merk the dragon. Leave noone alive...heh heh heh... >:)

It is possible to beat the Dragon at low levels, the lowest I did I think was 10/11. The only two people standing and fighting it mind you were Morrigan & Wynne, Morrigan was hitting it with Cone of Cold and an Ice Spell whilst Wynne was playing support and doing some damage.
