    When you reach the final battle in Act 3 during 'The Last Straw' quest, you MUST side with the templars in your final decision.
    A mail at home triggers the final part of the quest, upon which you'll need to head to the gallows and make a choice for siding with Orsino or Meredith.

    Simply support Meredith and upon finishing the game, the achievement will unlock

    Additionally, this choice does not count as siding with templars/mages for the two secret achievements, nor does siding with either faction throughout the game influence this final decision.

    ItsJustAChazeSimple enough, except.. in the last battle, the crawling guy disappears and the battle ends but it doesn't do anything and I'm stuck in that area. Walking around the edges, I found the big blubber guy outside the map attacking me from a distancedistance so I had to load last save and pick a team with ranged attacks just to get him. So this is kinda glitched.
