Dragon's Dogma Achievements

Affinity and Beyond

Raised a person's affinity to the maximum.  

Any non-pawn's affinity can be raised. There are a number of ways you can raise a person's affinity. The easiest way is to give them presents. Press to speak with them, then press to choose a present to give them. Certain items will raise certain people's affinity more. If you look at the details of an item it will say if there is a specific person who favours it.

There are a couple methods that allow you to max someone's affinity quickly.

The easiest one is to complete the "Arousing Suspicion" quest. This will instantly raise Aelinore's affinity to maximum.

Another way is to do the quest "Talent in Bloom". To do this speak to Quina at the Abbey. Quina is the girl who helps you at the very beginning of the game. To find the Abbey, go west through the forest from the ancient quarry's north entrance. Present her the flower she gives you and complete the quest. If you're having trouble finding the Abbey, refer to this map.

Once you've reached maximum affinity with someone, you will know because you can hear a ringing noise each time you speak to them. The achievement should unlock as soon as their affinity has reached max.

What's affinity? I assume like your character's paragon or renegade from mass effect?

The way it is worded it sounds like affinity is most likely the affection level of your companions/pawns

Given that there is a heart behind to figures holding hands, I would assume this deals with an NPC's affection towards the player.

Huh, I guess this refers to the romance options that were mentioned...Go figure.

I did this on accident with Madelaine by simply doing her quests, and for doing the Duke's female companions quest. They both had a pinkish aura that appeared when I talked to them, never gave either of them a gift.

seems to be bugged for me. Got full affinity with both Madeline and the Dutchess (from doing Arousing Suspision) and achievement didn't pop :(

Finally got it after a shit-load of white lilly flowers and doing the Arousing Suspision AND Duchess in Distress quests. Fussy bitch.

I got this with Quina fairly early in the game. I gave her 2 Capeflowers, which I found exploring outside Cassardis, and after the Witchwood quest she was already maxed out. I haven't tried it, but it seems bandits would be very easy as well because they like skulls, and skulls are plentiful.
