After 3 long years of trying to get any of these Ally achievements to pop, I was finally able to get this with the help of my good friend Saft Und Kraft. I'm a list-kind of guy; he provided me with a basic layout and I took it to the next level. SO, here's a list of all MISSIONS and ASSIGNMENTS that need to be completed to get the ASARI ally achievement.

The following MISSIONS I completed before I had Liara in my party. Another important thing to point out is that I'm pretty certain I collected Fist's Datapad before I had Liara in my party. However, I did not turn the datapad into Emily Wong until after I had Liara.

Prologue: Find the Beacon
Citadel: Expose Saren
Citadel: Garrus
Citadel: Wrex

Sindarin EagleJust for the record, this doesn't appear to be based on missions versus assignments, just a total count of the number of things you've finished. I got the achievement after having done only Feros and Therum, but doing every assignment that it's possible to do before going to either Noveria or Virmire (including DLC and collectables). I got Liara as soon as possible (similar to the description above), and then made sure she was always in my party at every possible moment.

WithTheDawnIts a little misleading listing the Virmire mission so far up the list, as after you do this and subsequently escape with the Normandy, you are unable to return to the citadel, and there are several missions you can never complete. Other than that, good list.

StumblesMcGeeYeah, I can see how that may be a little misleading. I wanted to group Missions and Assignments separately so that it'd be easier to read. I guess it's implied that you shouldn't leave a planet until all the assignments for that location are completed.

Thanks for the feedback, =)

BasanakinTo the readers:
I noticed that he didnt wrote down the Missions of Wrex and Garrus. In my case, I was only able to finish Wrexs quest by going back into the normandy. I believe this DID NOT count as a completed sidequest, since this was the last one i was expecting for Ashley.
I also had to use the Bring Down DLC. Im sure that I wouldnt gotten this achievement if I hadnt bought it. The only assignments I didnt do was the negotiators request, and the collecting missions. Basicly everything possible till Ilos (and without the Pinnacle DLC).
I did 55 assigenments. This was my second attempt, but the first time WITH the Bring Down DLC. This caused me to think that this achievement is bugged.

Citadel: Garrus
Citadel: Wrex

SicklyPlagueI think he means Getting Wrex's armor, dealing with dr saleon for garus and talis pilgrimage.

Claptrap NLDo you need to do everything posted in the guide?
Posted by Claptrap NL on 07 Jan 15 at 22:13
StumblesMcGee@Claptrap NL, it would be in your best interest to do everything posted to ensure your achievement pops. You may not end up doing everything, but it'll be close.

Moscow TimmyThere doesn't seem to be a consensus on how this achievements is unlocked. I got Liara as soon as possible and kept her in my party the whole game. I even ensured I was on the ground when finishing collectable quests. This did not pop until the final conversation with Saren at the end of the game.

JimmieWorldAs I don't have any DLCs, I completed without them, still being able to get it before Ilos. My last mission was Negotiators Request. I completed over 50 missions in total. I didn't go for collectibles (I had only the asari collection), and I didn't completed Geth Incursion and Post Alpha quests.
