Legacy is the second DLC released for Dragon Age 2. It will cost you 800 Microsoft Points and has five achievements, for a total of 120G. It will take you around 2-3 hours to complete, depending on any side quests you may want to complete along the way. You can access the DLC by going into Hawke’s mansion in Hightown, and clicking ont he statue in the library. It is worth noting right off the bat that, if you want to get all the achievements, you must start and complete this DLC before the end of Act 1. One of the achievement will require Bethany or Carver to still be a playable companion within your party. Three of the achievements you will be able to get without any effort, but two of them are missable if you aren’t careful.
Deep Roads Safari – 15G
Kill a genlock, genlock alpha, hurlock alpha, bronto, and deepstalker in the Vimmark Mountains. This achievement will come automatically after a short time. You will not be able to miss it. After about half an hour or so, you will find yourself in Corypheus’s Prison. Here you will begin to come across darkspawn and the achievement will unlock when you have killed one of each type.
Tower Sweeper – 30G
Complete every side quest in the Vimmark Mountains prison tower. When you make it into the Dark Roads, you will find yourself in Corypheus’s Prison. You start on the Sashamiri’s Floor. There are three side quests that can be found inside this tower. Activate and complete all three for the acheivement. If you are thorough in your searching, and the tower is not that big so it isn’t hard to be, then you will find these quests, and their items easily enough. Just to be sure though, I have listed the quests below to help you along.
Malcolm’s Will – When you are on the first floor of the tower, Sashamiri’s Floor, you will come to a point where there is a magical barrier keeping a shade prisoner. On the walls near the cell, there are two red dots on the wall. Interact with both of these to break the seal on the cell. Then interact with the seal itself to bring it down completely, and kill the shade. There are two more prison cells within the tower that must be dealt with in the same way. They are both on Farele’s Floor and, when both have been dealt with, the quest will be complete.
Altar of Damut – There are four artefacts inside the tower. To activate this quest you must find any one of them. To complete it, you must find them all and place them on the Altar of Dumat, on the Tower’s Base level. The artefacts are listed below, with their locations to help you out.
Crown of Dumat – Found in a side room, on the eastern side of Farele’s Floor.
Dumat’s Sacrificial Dagger – When you reach the northern area of Farele’s Floor, you will head south into another room. Adjoining this room there is a smaller room to the east. The dagger is in there, amongst a skeleton.
Dumat’s Ritual Scroll – As you head south in the Tower’s Base, you will come across some stairs that are in an L shape. Head up them and you will find the scroll lying on a large block of stone.
Sacred Urn of Dumat – You will actually find this artefact after you find the Altar of Dumat. Instead of placing anything ont he altar, carry on until you come to some spiders fighting some deepstalkers. Head into a little room in the southern part of this area and you will find the urn.
The Paragon’s Heir – When you enter the Tower’s Base, walk down the path a short distance and turn to the right. On the map you should see a small, dead-end. Here you will find a dead dwarf with a journal page on the floor beside them. This will activate the quest for you. There are three dead legionnaires, and their journal pages, to find. When you have, you will then be shown on the map, where to go to find the paragon and complete the quest. You will find the locations of each journal page listed below. The second journal page can be found nearby the first. Head back to the main path and, on the opposite side of the dead-end you were in, there is a building. Head through here and you will come out into the open again. Here you will see another building on the left. The second page is inside here. The final page is just a little further on than Dumat’s Altar. When you come across some spiders and some deepstalkers fighting, the page will be found in this area, near the water’s edge.
Family Legacy – 30G
Apply three effects to Hawke’s Key. You will not be able to miss this achievement because it is story related. As you move down through the tower, you will come across three seals. Each time you break a seal, you will get into a boss battle. When each enemy is taken down you will be able to choose an effect to add to Hawke’s “key”. When you have done all three, the achievement will unlock.
Conductor – 30G
Defeat an ancient evil in the Vimmark Mountains. You will get this achievement when you have managed to defeat Corypheus. He is a tough boss, even if you are at a high level. If you need any help defeating him, check the video below.
Family Outing – 15G
Complete the main quest in the Vimmark Mountains with Bethany or Carver in the party. If you manage to complete this DLC by defeating Corypheus, before the end of Act 1, and you have either Bethany or Carver in your party, this achievement will unlock. It really is that simple.
