Although this can be completed in your first playthrough, it is recommend that you start as many quests in your first playthrough that aren't escort quests. Most of these notice board quests are cumulative task, like killing x number of enemies. Accept them as soon as possible so you can get as much progress towards them as you can. On your second playthrough escort quests will be much easier because you can purchase portcrystals to quickly and safely escort the NPCs.
Frequently check the following noticeboards:
- Cassardis Inn
- The Encampment
- Gran Soren Inn
- Gran Soren Pawn Guild
- Gran Soren Alehouse
All progress carries over to NG+ and you can view this achievement's progress in the Adventure Log. Also, DLC can be purchased for notice board quests and they will count towards the achievement.
