    Unique weapons are the ones whose names are in purple and usually in their description have a story associated with them. Their names will also be more than just Strengthening Hammer or Fine Azurite Daggers. Examples are: Earth Gavel or Rimescythe. You can find or buy these weapons all over The Faelands and it isn't that hard to acquire them. You can even store a few in your chest in Canneroc or Adessa (should you make it that far before the achievement pops). Though the game says purple weapons are rare, however only 18 hours into the game I obtained the achievement. With a good amount of exploring this achievement will come with ease.

    Edit by way of Cyber Grimm: as long as you have picked up the purple weapons and have had them in your inventory at some time this achievement will pop. So feel free to sell them if you have no need for them or salvage the parts of you are trying to build a better weapon.

    Mr LiberalEllusion no, launch day code weapons dont count. Matter of fact, any weapons you get in the special delivery chest do not count toward this achievment.

    Ellusion noNo worries Darth =) I've been carrying around a purple silly chakram forever and have a sneaky feeling it came from the delivery chest and doesn't count. Level 5 and up though, purples drop all the time and no list is needed. Expected the achievement would be harder though.

    I even pick pocketed purple accessories off random NPC's with 1 in stealth (including a ring with +1 hp regen, +1 mercantile and +1 alchemy...)

    Darth BieberAs long as the weapon is purple and in your inventory (and doesn't come from the delivery chest) you are golden. Yeah, I thought so as well Ellusion, but at level 25 I only get blue and purple weapons with the occasional white or green thrown in for flair.

    Almighty AllahI thought I was getting screwed on this achievement but then I realized it was weapons and not just items in general. Should get it soon. Thumbs upped.

    Darth BieberIt is a very easy achievement. It sounds daunting by the description, but not at all. By end game you are getting purple weapons every 2-3 minutes.

    mast3r 0r0m1sYeah I guess emphasis on "weapons" thought it included armour also. Hate when you misread an achievement description and are disappointed when you don't get the achievement. And yeah purple weapons aren't that hard to come by.

    LoganMerazzistupid question... What is a delivery chest? :)
    Posted by LoganMerazzi on 11 Feb 13 at 13:55
    TheTruchI guess you found the answer by yourself, but the delivery chest is outside, in the first city. It's a chest where you can find item you get with dlc or pre-order code (like for exemple the full set of "shepard armor" if you played mass effect 3 demo)
    as explained in upper post, theses item do not count in this cheevo.

    SPIRITWRAITHI found 3 purple weapons in Uduath, which is a cave in the NE corner of Ettinmere. This cave is a location in the Ballad of Bloody Bones quest, and it's a fairly short quest too.
