Dragon Age: Origins

Dragon Age: Origins Achievements


Took advantage of Avernus's research (Warden’s Keep DLC)   

Towards the end of the "Soldier's Peak" quest, you'll come to Avernus's workshop. You'll find a potion sitting on a table next to a book. Drink it.

This is an achievement you can miss! Once you've reached the top of the tower, you have the option to drink a potion. Achievement unlocked, if you drink it.

After you've beaten the tower, it's locked up. You can't go back in again.

Definitely easy to miss. Also, kind of silly, since i'm pretty sure the only thing that happens is you drink a foul tasting potion.

Before the final room with Avernus in it, there will be a vial on a desk between the two doors before the final room. You can drink it, smash it or leave it alone. Leaving it alone or smashing it does nothing, but if you drink it, you get this achievement. You also get some strange, new skills if you drink it.

am not following an achievement guide, (did look on here after i unlocked Diabolist) but i saved right before drinking it.
something about "unlocking the true potential of the darkspawn blood that flows through your body" made me think i was going to die from drinking this.

love this site tho, such an easy place to find quick answers.

This appears to be glitched for me still. I have tried drinking the vial with the patch and without. Both times having cleared system cache first. Quite lame.

If you play a mage you get some pretty sick spells from this!

Sadly, My game is glitched. Could someone please help me with what I should do on this matter? All I need at this time is this, and the perfectionist achievement to 100% Dragon Age Origins and all of its DLC.
