    For the Biotic achievements you need to make an Adept classed character.

    You do need a target to unlock this achievement, cast Throw on a Citadel Transport Terminal as that counts towards your 75.

    When your team mates cast any of the Biotic/Tech spells they do NOT count towards your 75.

    Claptrap NLI can't target my teammates.
    So if I'm right, I just have too aim on the Citadel Rapid Transit and use Throw (and the other ones) too get this achievement?

    Maiden Ty OneIs there any way to track this?

    I'm convinced I've done this way more than 100 times and it still won't unlock.

    I did the basic target-cast-Citadel transport terminal routine, but since it takes awhile to recharge, I decided to save and load, which makes a whole lot faster. It is best to get all of them and go to the nearest terminal.

    Also, it goes even faster to just load the game after you cast them, but if you turn off your console, you will lose your progress.

    Just a little tip to make things go faster. Hope this helps :]

    A BatwomanI can comfirm that you can target your team mates as well and it will add towards this or give you the achievement. I was targetting and throwing Ashley the whole time xD Same with Garrus or whoever you have with you. Pretty neat.

    As previously stated, Throw must be used (cumulatively) on targets 75 times, the earliest repeatable target I found for this was the Prothean Beacon on Eden Prime. At the end of the level, kill all the enemies, and DON'T press A when targeting the beacon. Just hit it with Thrown (and whatever other Biotic abilities you have you need to grind for an achievement) until you ding.

    If you want to do a different method or a lazy method in getting this achievement and you don't want to do the long, boring, normal grind for this achievement. cry Then pull out your turbo controller and do the following:

    - pick a class that has or have this skill obtainable
    - when you have this skill available to use, go to the Citadel and face a Transport Terminal (make sure to target the little blue circle on it) and make sure it's safe (away from enemies)
    - during normal gameplay hold the "RB" button
    - highlight "Throw" then press "X" (Map Skill) to assign it to your "RB" button
    - let go of the "RB" button
    - set the "RB" button on turbo on your controller
    - rubber band the "RB" button down (make sure you are still facing blue circle of Terminal)
    - then watch TV, go on the internet, go to sleepsleep, go to the bathroom, go eat, or go to the bathroom and eat.

    You can just let your turbo controller and rubber band to cast and recast the skill for In the mean while do your chores, do your fun homework, or go to work and come back later to get your cheevo!

    Happy boosting! wave

    Seeing as nobody has mentioned this useful thread I guess I'll put it on here...

    As for my own tips...

    -You will require to be at least level 6 to unlock all Engineer/Adept achievement related powers.

    -Install Mass Effect to your hard drive, it literally halves the time taken to load a save file.

    -Use the load save file method instead of waiting. NOTE: Make sure not to turn off your console as this deletes the temporary files. Save regularly to avoid this!
