Careful not to take Shale with you if you decide to preserve the Anvil of the Void as Shale will become hostile and attack you.

Has any one save the anvil and gotten the achievement then reloaded and destroyed it?
Didn't know if this is possible

#3 As long as you save before the auto-save when you tell Caridin your choice then you go back and just do the boss battle again. And get the other achievement.

Actually you don't even need to do the boss battle again. Do the boss battle and then the door will open to enter the chamber with Cairidin in it. Make a save then, after the boss battle but before you go thru the door and begin speaking to Cairidin. Then you can easily go talk to Cairidin and side with saving the Anvil and get the Pragmatist achievement. Then reload that save, go back in and talk to Cairidin again, this time agreeing to destroy it, and boom. Both achievements. I just did it, worked fine. :)
