An annoying achievement, I did 40-43 side quests and got this just before the end boss fight. I would recommend doing as many side quests as possible before going Virmire. Also changing difficulties half way through doesn't affect this achievement.

usually for all of them you have to do almost all the side quests.

I did almost all the side quests and I just got the achievement right before going to Ilos.

When I got Liara I had done every main mission/misson planet assignment before Illos and I had done every Citadel assignment and all the missions/assignments related to the DLC Bring Down the Sky and Pinnacle Station. No uncharted planets whatsoever.

I got this during Feros, which was my second story planet, went and got Liara first, then did all non story system missions. Think I had done around 45-50 side quests and it popped.

I got this one, but not any of the others. I finished the game twice (not including the many times I played on pc cuz i loooove mass effect!) but none of the others. I know this game pretty well I'd say, but no pops. Bugged maybe?

Got most of others now.. still need this and quarian with vimire, llos, citadel and final battle left to go.

Does the quests carry over playthroughs? on my 2nd one now but will start a third if it does?

@ #7 No, it is in one playthrough playing a majority of that playthrough. It does not carry over playthroughs.

I got this with Liara and Ashley thus far (first playthrough) and it popped for Liara around the time I went to Feros after doing almost ALL the side missions, the collection missions and then it popped for her. It's got to be easier with Wrex because you get him in citadel. Overall easy achievement, but boring because you can't alternate characters :(

This wasnt hard at all, I had it before I was done feros, didnt do any of the collection missions either. Last of the 3 initial main missions and I'm on my way to Virmire.

This one came up earlier then any others, after defeating Benezia. I'd found Liara & done Feros already, plus all the side quests on Noveria, Feros & the Citadel, but not many uncharted world missions.

I think mine is bugged. I used Tali and Wrex from the moment I got them and vacuumed the galaxy for side quests. I got the one for Tali on Feros (I got Liara first, then I did Bring down the sky and then Noveria). I assumed the krogan chievo would pop soon after, but now I've completed the game and nothing...

I think it's possible these carry-through progress from other campaigns. I'm working on Wrex with a completely new character, but, got just Garrus's achievement after Feros & Noveria and some side missions. I had played-through with Garrus in a separate campaign and not gotten the achievement to pop. Hopefully, I'll get Wrex & Liara and be done with the ally ones.

this achievement is horse crap ... I did every side mission except the collection ones like things where you have to mine or survey planets ...and i didn't get this one or the other characters too ! What a waste of time !

First time I played the game I thought I did everything possible but I missed a few side quests (all the ones on Noveria and Feros, some other ones too).

Second play through I got Garrus' and Wrex's achievements before even going to Virmire and without doing collection quests. Did ~40 side quests

I used Tali and Wrex since I got them and I got "Completionist" and "Quarian Ally" at the same time, but not the one for Wrex even though there's 2 missions with Wrex before you get Tali so I don't know it didn't pop up with the other 2

This achievement is bugged. I did a play through with Wrex and Tali and even though I picked up Wrex before Tali, I only received the quarian ally achievement at the end of the game. I kept the same squad as soon as I got them, only switching out Tali for Garrus to complete his special assignment. On the previous playthrough, I received both the soldier and turian ally achievements before I began the virmire mission which is way earlier than I received the quarian ally achievement. I even did the exact same side missions, which was most of them. This is the first time I have ever had an achievement glitch on me out of the 50 or so xbox 360 games I have played. =

Still trying to get this. I've used Wrex and Tali for most of current playthrough. Except for the Garrus mission.
