The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Achievements

Friend of Trolls

Spare all trolls in the game.   

There are a total of three trolls throughout the game. For this achievement (I'd recommend doing this on Dark difficulty, just to avoid any frustration), you are going to need to not kill any of them. Completely ignoring them will not net you the achievement.

Chapter I

There is one troll in this chapter. First off, you can't just ignore him and get the achievement. You must participate in his side quest to count for the achievement. You can always find it by the ruined bridge, but just to make it easier, take the quest "Troll Trouble" on the noticeboard outside of the inn. Upon going to the troll, you will fight it a little bit, but the fight will stop when the troll's health is about halfway down. He will tell you that if you help him find out what happened to his wife, then you will be able to pass. Agree to this, and it will start a subplot about finding the wife. Talk with Zoltan and Sile at the inn in Flotsam, and you will then be tasked with searching Sendler's house (close to where Cedric is located). He will tell you he was sold the head of the she-troll to him by a bandit named Dmitri. He will tell you that the bandit is located at the cemetery which is right by his house. Kill the bandits and then return to the troll telling him about his wife's fate. He will let you through after that.

Chapter II

Towards the end of the chapter (regardless of whose side you're on), you will encounter two trolls. The first is a she-troll being attacked by some mercenaries, so kill them to help her. Follow the path a little further and you will meet her husband, who is looking for her. Obviously, don't attack the husband or select the dialogue that prompts a fight. Agree to help him and go back to the she-troll to tell her to go back to her husband. Convince her to go back to her husband to complete the subplot.

The achievement will unlock after you help the last troll in Chapter II.

I took the Roche path at the end of 1.

1 troll in Chapter 1, quest Troll Trouble, rough him up a bit and he stops to talk, say you'll find the murders then finish the quest line.

Chapter 2 I found 3 trolls
1 on accident - wondering around looking for corpses to burn - just left the area.

The next two (She and He-Trolls) are very close together. After the fog is lifted you will be sent to Vergen through the ravines, on the map the first is by the boat towards the bottom along the route you must take. The She-Troll will stop to you, be nice, Roche suggest to kill her, say "She might know something" to avoid killing her and finish the conversation - she will say she is going to sleep. Continue through the ravine to find 3 soldiers attacking the He-Troll, kill the soldiers and do not

To get this achievement, you can't just not kill any trolls, you have to help them. In the first chapter you have to help the troll get over his alcoholism by killing Dmitri. In the second chapter you need to help re-unite the two trolls, you can do this on both Vernon, and Iorveth's side. There aren't any trolls in the 3rd chapter.

In case you kill the hostile troll without a story in the second act it does not matter. I killed it and the continued on to help the other two trolls laster in the story and the achievement popped up.

You need to meet and help the troll in chapter 1, and also not harm the 2 trolls in chapter 2, i decided not to meet the troll under the bridge, (thinking that way i wouldn't hurt him) but it won't trigger due to the lack of interaction.

You have to make sure that when you talk to the second troll in Chapter 2. when he asks how the she-troll is choose She's Fine, the other option will send him fighting elsewhere and you dont get the achievement.

I also killed the crazy Troll on chapter 2 (the one that attacks you without saying a word), and still got the achievement.
