Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Achievements

A Life of Crime

Get caught committing a crime 25 times.  

Any crime you commit must be seen; this can be assault (damaging a person), murder, theft, etc. Simply get caught for crimes 25 times and you're set. If you pickpocket a character then attack them and run away out of the village for a day or two of in-game time, it will leave them alive and give you the credit you need. Or if you have the money, simply commit the crime and pay the bribe to try and knock out the bribe money as well for "Crime Doesn't Pay."

Went on a killing rampage in Gorhart and Didenhil and couldn't get this to pop. Bounty was over 300k so that's a lot of assaults and murders.

maybe you have to get caught, pay off (or serve jail time) 25 separate times? a rampage, even though you're killing more than 25 people probably still counts as 1 criminal offense. just my guess, i only started playing last night.

here what i did. save up around 20000 gold. go around in aggressive mode and just hit a guard to get an assult charge. pay the fine and hit him again thebn pay the fine and rinse and repeat. try not to kill him or the fine will double. just do this till the achievement unlocks. you can always steal items to get a lower fine or hit civies. you'll also get the reckoning achievement half wat through. to the guy who will be writing a guide for this, if you steal my method i just posted nd publish it in the guide without crediting me like you guys did for LA Noire i will be pissed.

Just attack a guard and pay him his bribe and attack him again. Even murder crimes only cost about 7000 gold to pay off. Save your game first do the achievement, and then load if you dont want to waste any of your money.

Went to an inn and saved. Picked a pocket in full view so i would get caught. Paid fine when the guard came to me. Attacked the guard, paid the fine. Rinse and repeat till it pops.

@5 dude, 'your' method is not exactly super secret, there will be plenty of people around who have already done it this way, get over yourself.

Another easy way to get this cheevo is to go to the Armory in Adessa. Enter the Armory, walk around and get caught for trespassing. You can do this multiple times. And/or steal an item in the Armory, get caught, pay fine rinse and repeat.

For anyone that doesn't understand, each time you commit a crime, you'll see a message pop up. Being caught is when (I think) a Guard comes up to you and informs you of your crime, but I don't know for sure. It might count just for being seen and getting away.

Worked like a charm. My son is now jealous that he didn't think to do it that way. LOL

what I did and it's the best way have a full inventory find someone to pick pocket and take a item like armor or weapons and just keep hitting the A and B buttons do that 25 times and there you go also works with the 10,000 crime bribe achievement cause the amount of fines go up hope that helps
