Here are some basic facts about the trophies in Dragon Age: Inquisition:

  1. The retail version of the game has 51 trophies, including 1 platinum, 2 gold, 6 silver, and 42 bronze. To unlock the platinum trophy, all these trophies must be earned.
  2. Earning all the trophies in one playthrough is a challenging task. For instance, completing the story on the highest difficulty level (Nightmare) is required to unlock the Inquisitor trophy. However, after finishing the main story and unlocking the trophy, players can reduce the difficulty level of the game to win all the additional trophies.
  3. Some trophies can be skipped, such as those associated with gaining the trust of NPCs or certain factions. If there is a chance that the event connected to the trophy will be missed, the achievement description will warn players beforehand.
  4. Earning all the trophies could take more than 100 hours. Dragon Age: Inquisition is a long game, and some trophies require players to engage in additional activities. Players’ progress will also be slowed down due to the Nightmare difficulty level, where some battles require multiple attempts.
  5. Trophies that require killing 1000 monsters do not need to be earned during a single playthrough. If players do not earn them despite completing the campaign, they can start a new game without having to repeat them.
