Achievement Guide Edit
Perfectionist Achievement Guide
This is the fastest way to get the Perfectionist Achievement as I know. It involves three strategic save points. If you follow this guide you should get the achievement in 6-8 hours depending on the difficulty rather then the 16-20 hours it would take otherwise.
Ending #1) Save Logain and tell Morrigan “No!”; Sacrificing Logain.
The first save point is when you arrive at the Arl of Redcliffe’s palace in Denerim. Just before the actual landsmeet you will have an opportunity to save. You will be by yourself running around the Arl’s palace. There is a quest you have to do in the Alienage so do that and save again. Hopeful you will save just as you’re ready to leave the palace for the actual meeting. This is save Point #1. We will come back to this save point in the second ending.
During the Landsmeet save Logain and let Alistair leave.
Note: If you haven’t done so already, prior to making your way to Redcliff go and buy as many heath potions as possible in Denerim.
Proceed through the final quest until you get to Redcliff. Once in Redcliff Castle go and buy more heath potions from the Dwarves then go to the Gray Wardens meeting. Once you have the Gray Wardens meeting upstairs in the Arl’s or Redcliff’s castle this will be save point #2.
Note: After the meeting with the Gray warden’s and prior to talking with Morrigan about her options this will be “Save Point 2” that will be used in ending 3. However, you do not need to save here yet.
Go to your room and speak with Morrigan, deny her request and she will leave your party. (I stripped her of all her posessions prior to the meeting since she was leaving…and it made for a more interesting cut-scene). And I sold all her stuff to buy more potions and weapons.
Proceed with the quest until you get to the second floor of the tower. On the second floor you should find yourself in a room with a couple Ogers and a Mage. There are a few locked chests in this room. If you go up to the door, but don’t’ go through it just yet, you should notice that the door leads to the “Rooftop”.
Note: the door on the second floor of the keep that leads to the rooftop is “Save Point 3” that will be used in endings 3 and 4. However, you do not need to save here yet.
Next proceed to the Rooftop and fight the final boss, allow Logain to sacrifice himself and this will conclude Ending 1. Once you talk to the king and your codex saves you can load save point #1.
Tips on fighting the Archdemon:
Use the Ballistas!!. As soon as the battle starts proceed forward on your left up the ramp to the first Ballista. Keep you party in a holding pattern here to watch your back as you use the Ballista on the Archdemon. Also summon the Mages they do the most damage to the Archdemon. As the Archdemon moves have you party follow you to the next Ballista if you chose the one in front left you won’t have to move to far. He will move again and you will have to make your way to the furthest Ballista on the right as you are facing the rooftop door you came through. He will move one last time and you will then have to make you way all the way to the opposite end. Do so using the Ballista mezzanine on the left side to stay way from as many Darkspawn as possible. If you follow this strategy the enemy will do very little damage to your party since the Archdemon is too busy taking damage. If you run into trouble you only have to keep one person alive during the final fight, so use up all your health on your main character.
Ending #2) Killing Logain and tell Morrigan “Yes!”
Reload Save Point #1 - Arl of Redcliffe’s palace in Denerim. Go through the Landsmeet and kill Logain and place Alistair as king since we won’t need Logain or his daughter anymore. Then proceed to Redcliff.
Save just after the meeting with the Gray Wardens and prior to the meeting with Morrigan. This is Save Point #2. And we will come back to this save point for Ending #3.
Agree with Morrigan and then proceed once again to the final battle. This will be what I call the “Happy Happy Happy Joy Joy Joy” ending. Keep in mind the door to the rooftop.
Follow the Ballista strategy described above and kill the Archdemon. Let the credits roll. You might want to save in camp after the credits. This is the one I reloaded to keep everyone in my party and to keep playing.
Ending #3) Tell Morrigan “No!”, Sacrifice Main Charter.
Reload Save Point #2, talk to Morrigan and tell her “no deal”. [IMPORTANT] Pick Alistair as you final battle party member at the front gates. Then precede with the quest to the Seconds floor of the keep and save just prior to going though the Rooftop door. This will be Save Point #3!! [/IMPORTANT]
In the final fight and sacrifice yourself.
Note 1: You can also sacrifice yourself having saved Logain. Just save prior to entering the rooftop the first time, and once you sacrifice Logain and the codex is entered, load the game prior to entering the rooftop.
Note 2: If you are in a relationship (as human female noble) with Allistar, he will not allow you to sacrifce yourself.
Ending #4) Sacrifice Alistair
Reload Save Point #3 at the rooftop door, fight the Archdemon and sacrifice Alistair. This will allow you to keep playing. If you want to keep Alistair go back and load the Camp save.
There it is! The quickest way to Perfectionist I know. I wrote this because I wish I had this during my playthough. If you want to keep playing just reload the camp save after ending #2!!.....
