Achievements or trophies mark specific accomplishments made during all playthroughs of Dragon Age: Origins. These include finishing plot-related activities, making specific choices at certain key points in the game, learning specializations, and performing certain tasks. Each milestone also awards the player a certain number of Gamescore points, which only have value as bragging rights; they have no other use. Achievements are updated on the player's BioWare account profile (and next to their account name in Bioware Forums).

Witch Hunt Edit
Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening Edit
- There are 109 achievements with a total of 2250 points.
- During Nature of the Beast if you agree to help the Werewolves by luring Zathrian into their lair and betraying him, this awards you the Poacher trophy, even though you technically sided with the Werewolves.
- During A Paragon of Her Kind if you side with Branka against Caridin then convince her to destroy the Anvil, this awards you the Pragmatist trophy, even though you didn't preserve the Anvil.
- Upon purchasing the Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening, Golems of Amgarrak or Witch Hunt expansions, it becomes possible to unlock all of the talent based achievements at a much faster pace, by simply creating a new character for the story, and allocating skill points towards a specific talent tree from the beginning rather than earning them over the 20 levels needed whilst playing the original campaign.
- Upon purchasing the Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening expansion, it becomes possible to unlock the "Master of Arms", "Shadow" and "Archmage" achievements at a much faster pace, by simply creating a new character for the story, and gaining the two levels needed from 18 to 20, rather than the 19 levels needed whilst playing the original campaign.
- Upon purchasing Golems of Amgarrak or Witch Hunt expansions, it becomes easier still to unlock the latter achievements, since the Warden starts at level 20.
- For the Enthralling achievement, you must gain full approval from a Genlock, Hurlock, Ogre, Shriek, Hurlock Emissary and Blight Wolf. Although other types of darkspawn are recruitable, they do not count.
- For the Vendetta achievement, you must place all three fenced items, Bann Perrin's suspect undergarments, and Jovi Merice's corpse on the captain's body (you don't need to place the mage's ring on it - you can just keep it for Sketch). Once the items are placed, report to Marjolaine for the achievement.
- Perfectionist: ps3 On PS3, this achievement may be awarded prematurely:
- Only three of the four possible endings may be required; the achievement has reportedly been granted to players that had not yet played the "Alistair's sacrifice" ending.
- During the Witch Hunt DLC, saving and loading in the library after Finn joins the party may grant the achievement.
- Only two of the four possible endings may be required: A Dark Promise and The Ultimate Sacrifice, once you acquired both, importing the Warden into Awakening will grant you Perfectionist.
- The Ultimate Sacrifice: ps3xbox360Loading the Epilogue Auto-save will instnantly give you the achievement; will possibly only happen in case you have agreed with performing the Dark Ritual, rewarding you with the wrong achievement and forcing you to replay from the last save from before the fight with the Archdemon.
- Blight-Queller: This achievement should be granted for killing 1,000 darkspawn across all playthroughs. However, the actual requirements for earning it may be different:
- pc On PC, the achievement is granted for killing 1,000 enemies of any type across all playthroughs.
- ps3 On PS3, the achievement is granted for killing 1,000 darkspawn on the same playthrough- which generally requires multiple reloads.
- xbox360 On Xbox 360, the achievement is granted for killing 1,000 darkspawn with the main character only, and possibly only when you are controlling them. Removing patch 1.04 may solve this problem; the patch can be reinstalled after earning the achievement.
- Ogre's Keeper: xbox360 This achievement may become impossible to unlock if you fail to earn it on your first playthrough of The Darkspawn Chronicles.
- xbox360 Players who unlocked DLC-related achievements on Xbox 360 within the first four days of the game's release failed to receive full credit for them. The achievements might show as unlocked on the player's Xbox but not on their online profile, and the points earned would not be added to their Gamerscore. On January 29th, 2010, this bug was fixed by a title update.
