    According to Mass Effect Wiki, you unlock this achievement by completing 45 assignments with Wrex out of the disc's 73. Each DLC adds 3 to that list, making for a max of 79.

    1) You do not need the character in your party to count toward your total, you just need him there when the assignment is marked "completed"
    2) YES, DLC assignments can count, and are much easier than some in game assignments.
    3) It make little difference who you use as your other character, as all the other characters need 45 assignments complete, save Liara who needs 50 assignments. Pick the squadmate who seems ideal for the situation or who will compliment your squad best.
    4) When you earn this, all characters will regenerate 1HP per second no matter what.

    Koios1992Good solution! Nice touch on the perk as well. If you go under "extras" and "achievements" it will tell you what all the perks of the other achievements are as well.

    You do not need to do 45 assignments!

    The DLC seems to be worth more. I completed 11 missions and only 26 assignments when this popped, though 5 of my assignments were from X57 and Pinnacle Station.

    For missions, I completed only Find Liara T'Soni and all of Noveria. While i started Feros I did not need to complete it. The Snorg's solution lists the mission titles if you need them.

    For assignments I only completed 21 non-DLC, mostly Citadel assignments, the first four Feros assignments from the tunnels, and a few quick non-shooting assignments like UNC:Major Kyle or Noveria:Smuggling.

    If you have the DLC, get those done first and the achievement will pop sooner!

    hella awesomeThat's the catch... The DLC counts more than all of the others. If you had done the DLC first you wouldn't have needed to finish as many missions and assignments.

    This is true for all characters, even Liara. If you have more achievements left try it again on easy, getting Liara then doing the DLC and you'll have it in no time.

    Dr PurrpleYou're telling me that the 6 assignments from the DLC cover up for the additional 11 I had to do in order to get Wrex's achievement? I'll have to test that for myself soon, I've got 2 playthroughs left to complete the game.

    DirtnoseThis is still relevant in 2016 on Xbox One via backwards compatibility.

    I got the Kaiden and Tali achievements before I even went to Noveria by doing the DLC.

    I did a bunch of sidequests (about 35ish, lots of Citadel ones and loads of UNC ones) I did Feros and its sidequests and the two DLC's.

    I got Kaidens achievement after pinnacle station and then I got Tali's achievement as I was picking up Liara.

    I still have to do Noveria, Virmire and some sidequests including all the long collection ones. The DLC 100% definitely helps a lot. Do it ASAP.

    !!!! READ THIS BEFORE USING WREX, IT COULD SAVE A LOT OF TIME! On Virmire there is a situation that will require you to have full charm or else
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***
    . Resolving this situation will also give you the "Charismatic" achievement. I lost about 4 hours of gameplay due to this. cry
