So without intending to I kind of started a goal to gain every achievement in the game so that should surely keep me busy until The Elder Scrolls Online is released (well, maybe not THAT long, but for a while). I just started noticing that I was getting the majority of achievements anyway, so I figured why not?
Here's my profile on Raptr (I can't think of an easier way to link achievements):
I'm sitting at 63/75 achievements (there were some achievements that came with the Dawngaurd DLC , Hearthfire add-on and Dragonborn DLC). Rather than link all the ones I have it is just easier to list the ones I DON'T have.
Dragonborn came out today and put me behind again right as I reached 63/65. I am waiting to be sent a code for the expansion from a friend since I am hindered by living overseas. I will add create a new version of All Achievements remaining later today. I prefer to keep the list short and it is time to move forward with Dragonborn.
*= Earned with my secondary character stored on a memory card.
Skyrim Achievements I am Lacking:
Bound Until Death- This is where I have screwed myself. This quest is part of the Dark Brotherhood. You see a long time ago around level 21 I ran into these guys and I really didn't like the way they were talking to me, telling me I had to kill who they wanted me to kill etc. Then I saw that pretty dagger Astrid had and well.. I killed her for it. I went on to destroy the Dark Brotherhood after. Sadly at the time, I wasn't aware of the achievement nor did I particularity care. Unfortunately this is not the only achievement relating to them and the only way I can get these is by making a new character, which Skyrim doesn't make it easy to do (one of my few complaints with the game).
Vampire Mastered- My secondary character will be handling this one. She is currently 2 perks in.
Werewolf Mastered- I really intended to work on this while I was a werewolf during all those Companions quests. However I failed at figuring that stuff out and in the end I just wanted to progress through the quests. I cured myself of lycanthropy and now if I get it again, I will be stuck a werewolf. Considering using this one for my "Big Bang" plan.
Legend- In my opinion this is going to be the hardest of all the achievements I have left. It is going to take a LOT of time and non-passive effort towards it. From what I have read you won't encounter a legendary dragon before level 78 (some have said they did, and I used to kill ancient dragons in my 30s, so maybe).. and that means leveling up. Right now I'm level 52. That has come out of about a week of passive playing.. but I think to reach 78 I'm probably going to have to level up EVERY SINGLE SKILL. Even ones I am not using like heavy armor, 2 handed weapons and caster related crap (I use some spells sometimes like to summon Arvak, heal myself or cast candlelight). After I get this, it will be time for the Big Bang plan and the rest will be cake.
Landowner- (added 9/4/12)- Just need to play the new add-on. Sounds easy enough.
Architect- (added 9/4/12)- Just need to play..
Proud Parent- (added 9/4/12)- Easily done after building home & children's bed and a dresser/chest.
Land Baron- (added 9/4/12)- 3 pieces of land doesn't sound hard. Just need to play more..
Master Architect- (added 9/4/12)- Finishing up my current home and moving my belongings, then I will finish my other 2 small houses into 3 wing homes.
I'll update this post as necessary.
