As the others have mentioned, this is a cumulative achievement, meaning that the game counts all your darkspawn kills across all your playthroughs. More importantly, though, it also keeps track of all your darkspawn kills that were not saved - if you kill 10 darkspawn and die, needing to reload an earlier save, the game will keep track of those kills. In fact, I managed to get this achievement in a single playthrough when my 'Heroic Accomplishments' menu claimed that I had only killed about 850 darkspawn.

The trick, then, is to have a save file right before a big group of darkspawn. During the Final Battle, there are several places with 30-50 darkspawn. If you set the difficulty to 'Casual,' these guys can be taken down in a matter of minutes, netting a decent number of kills in a short period of time.

So, the best way to nab this achievement is probably to play the game normally up until you get the Final Battle quest and then create a new save file at the beginning of one of the areas with a bunch of waves of darkspawn. I think the Alienage is the best, although Defend the Gates and the Palace District would probably work, too. Then, just kill all the darkspawn and reload until the achievement pops.
