    There are two ways to get this. One - play the game like you should, fight as many enemies as possible and do as many sidequests as possible. I got my level 20 towards the end of the game.

    The other way to do it is to get to Ostagard and start the quest where you get three vials of darkspawn blood. Get those three vials but don't get the treaties. Return to Duncan and tell him you have the vials but not the treaties. You will receive experience. Now keep talking to him stating the same thing, you will continue receiving experience. Grind up to level 20 and enjoy achievement goodness.

    Edit: For those of you not getting this, this does work. The game will not show you "completing" the quest over and over, but if you check your experience gauge after every time talking to Duncan and stating you have the blood but not the treaties, the experience gauge will go up. It takes approx 30-50 minutes to go from level 4 to level 20 (depending on how quickly you push buttons and if you skip the cutscenes). It just takes patience.

    If you own the the Golems of Amgarrak or Witch Hunt DLC, there is a very simple way to get this achievement. Simply start a new warrior in Origins and save the game. Then, start a Golems of Amgarrak/Witch Hunt save file and import this character. Skip through the cutscenes and dialogue. Since all characters in Golems of Amgarrak/Witch Hunt start at level 20, all you need to do is "level up" and the achievement is yours.

    Apostle92627He means just create a character in Origins. Anyway, as an experiment I tried creating a warrior in Golems. When that didn't work, I imported my level 6 warrior into Golems for the achievement. It's seriously easy. Like the "Press START to Play" achievement from the Simpsons Game, only slightly more complicated since it involves an addon. :D

    ScutumMagisterUnlocked this earlier this morning and you don't need to import a character. Just create a new game, pick Golems of Amgarrak or Witch Hunt as ViPeR866 says, level up and you'll unlock the achievement. You'll also get any of the talent related achievements as well if you don't already have them.

    One additional note to the above solutions: the achievement only unlocks after you "level up" with the A button from the stats screen. There is a glitch though -- if you don't level up when you're exactly on level 20, the achievement will never pop. I overshot and didn't level up until level 21 and learned this the hard way.
