Dragon Age: Inquisition Achievements

This page of the Dragon Age: Inquisition trophy guide lists all available trophies that can be obtained in the game. Each trophy description offers detailed information on how to unlock it and provides unique author comment with additional tips.

Basic information about trophies in Dragon Age: Inquisition

  1. Retail version of the game offers 51 trophies - 1 platinum, 2 gold, 6 silver, and 42 bronze. Unlocking all these trophies is required to unlock the platinum trophy.
  2. A complete set of trophies can be unlocked during a single playthrough, but it is a very difficult task. For example, unlocking Inquisitor trophy requires you to complete the story on the highest difficulty level (Nightmare). Fortunately, after completing the main story and unlocking the trophy, you can reduce the difficulty level of the game to win all of the additional trophies.
  3. Some, even less difficult trophies can be skipped, such as those associated with gaining the trust of NPCs or certain factions. If there is a chance of you missing the event connected to the trophy, the description of the achievement always warns you of that beforehand.
  4. Getting all the trophies will probably take you over 100 hours. Dragon Age: Inquisition is a long game, while some trophies require you to engage into additional activities. Your progress will also be slowed down due to Nightmare difficulty level, where some battles require you to approach them several times.
  5. Dragon Age: Inquisition allows you to save the game freely and in any location. Saves should be created at the beginning of each major quest and before more difficult battles. This will allow you, for example, to protect yourself from making the wrong decisions or let you take a different approach to the battle.
  6. Trophies requiring, for example, to kill 1000 monsters do not have to be obtained during a single playthrough. If you didn't get them despite completing the campaign, you can start a new game as you won't have to repeat them.
