    Since no one has added this other quick option I figured I might as well add it.

    Go to Noveria, play through til you get to a part where you have to break into a Turian's (Lorik Qui'in's) office to get some data. Once you have the data you will be approached by Anoleis's assistant and she will ask you to get Qui'in to testify. Speak to him and tell him to testify, make sure you already have enough paragon as well as charm points to select the paragon option. Selecting it will net you around +24paragon points.

    After he agrees speak with him again and ask him about Benezia, after his reply choose to ask him another question. The ability to ask him to testify will appear again and choose the paragon option for another +24 paragon points. Then just rinse and repeat til the achievement pops.

    *Note* This can also be done for the renegade achievement, just make sure you have enough renegade and intimidate points to be able to select the renegade option for +25 renegade points each time.

    Foxfire49@weredog - yeah most of the code for the game is basically the same, so kinda figured would still work with the backwards compatibility.

    The easiest way to get this, is on the UNC: Lost Module mission. Be sure not to harm any of the monkeys, then search each monkey colonie and every monkey you see.
    At the end you will enter a mine and at the bottom you can search a monkey who has the module.

    Tap the "a" button to search and then, SAVE your game, and RELOAD the save you just made. You can now search that monkey over and over again, just keep tapping the "a" button untill you got enough paragon points. (you'll see the achievement popping up)

    Every time you tap that button you get 6 paragon points... :-)

    Credits for this solution go to!

    Damon163I never really believed that this would work but it did! Very underrated solution! But I think you should consider specifying exactly where the information about the glitch is located-

    Easiest way of getting this achievement is to just play through the game and continuously use the upper right hand side conversation choice, and always minimise the number of people you have to kill. Also buff up your charm ability so that it is easier to get out of tricky situations.

    RandomnuttaI agree thats what I did on my first playthough

    Sindarin EagleSeveral of the assignments require particular levels of charm to be able to take the best choice, so if you want to be sure that you get this, it's best to read a walkthrough summary of the requirements (thus avoiding having to restore from saves, since some of the conversations aren't repeatable). The one I used is:

    Sindarin EagleAlso, it's probably worth noting that the charm option is often on the upper *left* and in blue. Those are the options that require sufficient charm to be active.
