The party members that you have to recruit are: Alistair (Ostagar), Morrigan (Kocari Wilds), Leliana (Lothering), Sten (Lothering), “Dog” (Human Noble origin and in Ostagar), Zevran (encounter after Redcliffe), Oghren (Orzammar), Wynne (Mage’s Circle Tower), and Loghain (after “The Landsmeet”). Be aware, if you accept Loghain into your party, then Alistair will leave it forever.

Shale is not required for this. If you have the “Stone’s Prisoner” DLC, recruit him anyway because he’s extremely valuable.

Trophy/Achievement Icon


Across all playthroughs, recruited all party members.

Hopelessly Romantic

Complete the romance stories with Morrigan, Leliana, Zevran, and Alistair. For Morrigan, your character needs to be male. For Alistair, your character needs to be female. For Leliana and Zevran, your character can be either male or female. When you reach a certain level (track your progress with the meter below their Character Record), you will slowly approach the end of the romance. You need to get the meter as high as possible (Leliana for example is close to maxed out, Zevran doesn’t take nearly as much). You’ll do a quest for them, then share a kiss, and then…

For an easy way to gain points with them, go into your inventory, and scroll over to the “Other” list. Anything that says “Gift” in purple can be given to any potential romantic interest. Just use R1 Button to scroll over to the character you’re interested in, highlight which item you’re going to give her, and press X Button to give it to him. The best items vary from character to character.

You’ll need two playthroughs for this.The Feast Day gifts DLC also give huge approval bonuses.

Hopelessly Romantic

Across all playthroughs, experienced all possible romances.

This is all going to depend on the decisions you make and who you side with throughout your playthroughs. You should be able to get this in two playthroughs. You should be able to save in Fort Drakon, play out the quest, quit, and reload doing the opposite and this should unlock. For now, that is unconfirmed. Below in the spoiler tags, is the list of what you have to do. Do not read if you don’t want things spoiled for you.

  • Morrigan performs the ritual that saves you.
  • You sacrifice yourself to save Ferelden. You’ll have to speak to Loghain or Alistair in Fort Drakon telling them you are going to sacrifice yourself.
  • Loghain sacrifices himself to save Ferelden. Speak to Loghain in Fort Drakon and tell it’s best he sacrifices himself.
  • Alistair sacrifices himself to save Ferelden. Speak to Alistair in Fort Drakon and tell him to sacrifice himself.
    One Playthrough Method: Utilize the extra saves made with Morrigan’s offer and the extra save before heading to The Landsmeet. Also make an extra save at the autosave point on the second floor of Fort Drakon. If you only need two endings, then great. If you need more, use the extra saves strategically to hit all of the requirements.

Across all playthroughs, discovered all possible endings.

Heavy Hitter

As a Warrior with high strength and willpower. Get a two-handed weapon with runes on it to increase the damage you inflict. Have your party mates cast buffing spells on you. Use the Berserker skill “Final Blow”. Make sure your stamina bar is full as well.

As a Rogue, max out your Archery talents, especially the Pinning Shot line. Get to Arrow of Slaying as soon as you can. Use that talent in a fight and you’ll easily do over 500 damage.

As a Mage, use Walking Virulent Bomb or Mana Clash on another Mage. Combining Spell Wisp, Spell Might, a high magic attribute, and two items that increases damage works as well.

This needs to be done against one, single enemy. There have been quite a few times where I’ve damaged multiple opponents with my Mage or Rogue with damage well over 250. Remember, it’s a single hit, not a single attack. You also need to do this with your main character. No switching to Shale. It won’t count.

Trophy/Achievement Icon

Heavy Hitter

Main character inflicted 250 damage with a single hit.

This has to be done in one playthrough. You’ll need to hit every location on the main map, and the sub maps for the Deep Roads and Denerim. You’ll need to do every main quest and quite a few side quests to visit all of them.

This trophy was recently confirmed to need the following places by Fleapants on the Bioware forums. Make sure to create an extra save before heading to the Royal Palace during “The Landsmeet”. That’s the point of no return.
