Does anyone else have problems unlocking this one?

I've got the first of them (Killing a hundred or so) and the loading-screen says that by now I have killed around 700 darkspawn (plus several more with some other characters) - but still no achievement :-(

Actually I wanted to 100% DA:O, so now I'm a little afaid that this one and maybe even the 1000-darkspawn-killer are glitched :-/

Yeah I have the same problem. I was hoping it was because i hadn't finished the 1st character but the i got 600 on my second character and i still didn't get it. I better not have to delete all the files and start again.

There is a weird glitch with it, not sure what is the cause. I myself had around 550 kills and it hadn't unlocked. I had just beaten the game, reloaded a save to do it again with a different ending and killed 1 darkspawn and it unlocked Master Warden.

I am connected to Live, so I have the latest updates. I only have the Stone Prisoner DLC so I'm not sure if DLC is the cause of it or not. It's strange. Hoping on the next playthrough the 1000 kills doesn't bug out on me.

I think I know the solution to people's problems. I've played around 80 hours on this and until last night I only had the 100 kill achievement. I killed a darkspawn without any other party member helping and this achievement pinged. What I think the achievement means is, 100, 500 and 1000 kills by YOU and no help from anyone. So if you're wanting this and the 1000 achievement I'm afraid you'll have to make a save before some waves of darkspawn or so and do it without aid unless you're willing to play a long time on it

Hope this helps!

Perhaps this is the wrong place to post this, perhaps not, but this question relates to this achievement most of all for me. I have all the DLC and the awakening expansion. Will the achievements for the original dragon age carry over to awakening or not?

And I'm having the same problem with these achievements, I have 900+ darkspawn kills, but I read somewhere it is affected by DLC. Not sure how accurate this is and I don't have the link handy, sorry peeps.

Will all your kills in all your playthrough's count towards this?

Yes they should do I am to understand, but according to some they don't. Something to do with DLC some people seem to think, but I believe that's untrue since I got this last night and have all the DLC, albeit from a disc.
I got it when my MAIN struck a darkspawn, so I think it is killing blows from your MAIN.

These achievements suck ..
Though I find it rather nice I got ''Master Warden'' when I killed the Archdemon.

I went through the game solo with my arcane warrior mage. These achievements will only pop if u get 500/1000 KILLING BLOWS, not party kills. I feel for those of you who have already completed the game with a mage as I wouldn't want to solo any other class.

@ Voodoowhoodoo sorry but what ur saying is rather bullsht...
there is no such thing as u having to get the killing blows... if u check
ur character's accomplishments u can see there's nothing there counting as
killing blows on darkspawn... For the once that arent sure..
YOU NEED 500 PARTY KILLS, NOT 500 KILLING BLOWS WITH YOUR CHARACTER. Whoever
says otherwise either is lying or is ignorant(sorry if im offending someone).

@#10 You seem very sure yet you offer no evidence to support your statement.

I believe Voodoo, as I have 1320 darkspawn killed and have not yet gotten this achievement, and my main character is a relatively weak backstab rogue who does not often earn a kill by himself.

I plan on playing as either a tank warrior or a battle mage with backup from a healer. I'll have my healer cast buffs, then use "enemy: any > wait". I hope this will prevent my healer from dealing any damage at all so I can get all the kills.

I got this one not long after starting the "Awakening" DLC.

I'm at over 700 darkspawn kills and this hasn't popped for me yet either.

ya i am on my second playthrough after beating all the dlc. you personally have to kill the darkspawn throughout all your playthroughs. i just wish it had an actual counter toward the achievement instead of the party

im afraid voodoo is right on this one I just unlocked this acheivment after my main warden killed a genlock in the fade. I have over 1000 darkspawn party kills so its likely that the warden must deal the final blow. if u want this acheivment I recommend using a 2h warrior or a mage as both of them are leathal to the darkspawn. I wonder if ogres count as darkspawn...

Just got this on my third play through of the game. It is for all play troughs and you have to have the killing blow. Ogres are suppose to count. Bout to finally play the awakening expansion so I hope those dark spawn do count towards getting to the thousand. Good luck!

I had over 1100 darkspawns killed... and NO ACHIEVEMENT... is so frustrating

You don't have to have the killing blow at all. The achievement is just glitches to hell on Xbox. On PS3 these unlocked as soon as the stat in the journal said 100, 500, 1000 etc. you don't ded the finishing blow. As long as someone in your team kills them. So please stop with the bullshit "you need killing blow" as you don't on ps3, so you won't here

i don't know #18 because for PS3 my friend is having the same issue with the achievement... so i do believe your character has to kill off the dark-spawn instead of your party and if you hadn't noticed this is XBOX360achievement.org not fucking PS3trophy.org dumb ass

All this arguing doesnt help, it jsut mas it more confusing. Either you need the "killing blow" or you dont. Either way it doesnt help that somany of us hvent gotten it. lol Ive killed over 2000 in my mage playthrough and havent gotten anything yet. So Im betting its jsut glitched all the hell.

I am currently attempting the Alienage repeat save idea. I started with 429 DS kills (according to the counter) and have only done it successfully twice. But I am going to go through this about 19-20 more times. If THAT does not work, then idk what I will do... I guess after that going offline and deleting the cache is all thats left. I don't understand how this idea has worked for others and I have not been successful the last time i tried this. I went through this with my first character about 10 times... still nothing. Hopefully this character is different as I created him around August of 2012.

I've got a question...... Do the one-hit-kill darkspawn during the final onslaught count twards this achievement?

I've been having the same problem as every one else. I am assuming that it is just that you have to have the killing blow. It would explain why I don't have the 500 and 1000 kills achievements because I have 2 completed play through's with only around 1,200 Darkspawn kills and one of the characters I played as was a support rogue who's whole job was to run around and stun/effect people. So he only probably had 100 Darkspawn kills. My current character is a warrior though. I have 650 Darkspawn kills as a party, half of which are probably my own.
