Oh, wow, what an oversight.
Okay, so I'm trying for this achievement, and I restart the Story version of the level. I play until the Troll and then have difficulty getting him to slam his chain mace down on the proper spots on the ledges. I'm standing right on the thing and he's hitting to the left and right of it - wasting time essentially.
I went to the other side, same thing...
Frustrated I decided to restart and try my luck again, so I saved and exited the level back to Middle-Earth. As the game tallied my collected studs the achievement popped.
I don't know if it'll happen any sooner in the level, but it's worth a shot.
This seems like something that might get patched soon.

I tried this on free play and it did not work, but when I tryed it in story I got it. Looks like it can only be done in story, unless mine just does not like me.

Thx meetsp1nner, I went into story collected 100 studs and saved and exited and achievement popped. I'm guessing they may fix that in the future.

I played the level on free play 4 times coming in under 15 minutes and the achievement won't pop. I tried what the above suggested in story mode and POP!

Got it legit...not that hard or time consuming. I don't know why you'd use the glitch?

I got this one by saving and quitting at the last save point in story mode, then returning to the level and finishing it. Seems that the game only count the time spent since I got back to the level.

I can confirm this can be done legit in story mode. I read on TrueAchievements.com that this won't pop on Free Play, either legit or with the glitch. I do not know that for sure though. This took me 4 tries and I just barely beat it.

Not a fan of getting acheevs through glitchy methods but had a dozen or so cracks at this and didn't get it , so ended up doing it the same way as the rest of you guys. Still works!
Thanks for the help guys! :) KC

The save and quit method doesnt seem to work anymore so I'm gonna be screwed for a bit. That bloody cave troll slows me down!!!!
|Comment #18 by rafsis|
Sunday, December 23, 2012 @ 11:41:31 AM
For those of you who can't do the glitch (save and exit) anymore, just clear your xbox60 system cache (to remove updates). Then start the game, do NOT install the game update, and get the achievement!
Worked like a charm for me!
To clear your cache - go to Xbox settings, system settings, storage, mark the storage device and press Y, clear system cache. This will not remove any saved games or stuff like that, only game updates!

Just got it today. Glitches have been patched; have to do it the real way now. It took me 3 tries to memorize the steps & the characters needed; but it can be done. Got it in story mode with no extras turned on.
|Comment #20 by LeeDoc40|
Thursday, December 27, 2012 @ 04:50:01 PM
Does anyone know if it can be done with extras such as invunerability & fast build turned on or if it can be done in 2-player co-op mode?
|Comment #21 by 96skyline|
Friday, December 28, 2012 @ 07:44:41 AM
Yep I can confirm if you do this after the update it doesn't work, so be sure to clear the cache as indicated in post #18.
|Comment #22 by onnabugeisha x|
Friday, December 28, 2012 @ 12:00:40 PM
thanks rafsis... your cache clearing worked when i replayed the story until the troll bit, saved and quit to middle earth. it popped while tallying my stud count. one really irritating achieve out of the way!
|Comment #23 by Otherwhen|
Saturday, December 29, 2012 @ 02:48:23 PM
After several attempts I gave up and cleared my cache. Worked a treat thx ;)
And can be done with extras too...!

Yup, just did it in story with extras. Though I only use stud bonuses and nothing else.

I went to my xbox storage and cleared my cache as #18 says, I then went to the Mines and did it in Story Mode. I collected 100 studs, saved and exited - no achievement. Then I did it again and did half the troll part, saved and exited - still nothing. Any suggestions?
|Comment #28 by TraceyAllan|
Thursday, January 24, 2013 @ 08:59:44 AM
Just dropping by to say that the clearing of the cache as per #18 still works. I stopped counting how many times I tried to get it legit after 8 attempts, so I just did as described, collected around 1000 studs, then save-and-exit. Bingo!
Thanks guys :)

Another method if all else fails. Play the level in story like normal but when you reach a "save & continue/quit." Save & quit to the main screen. Simply load up the game where you're outside, walk in & continue from the saved point. Then move to the next save point & repeat. Then complete the level rinsing & repeating where possible. Timer only counts while you're in the level but resets when you leave to the main menu.
Worked like a charm. Again if all other methods fail

Did the cache trick today. It works! Thanks so much! I haven`t played this game in six months and is it ever a pain in the ass to figure out again.
I didn`t enjoy this one nearly as much as the Pirates or H.P series.

You don't need to put the date in your comment - EVERY comment gets a time/date stamp!
Speaking of date stamp... that SUCKS it's been patched! Unless I play the ENTIRE game offline... I like my games to have the date stamp on it. D'oh!
They shouldn't have patched this... it's sort of an easter egg, not a game-breaking glitch/bug!!!

if you save and quit after reaching a save and continue then go back to it, it will drop you back at the beginning. that method did not work

Clear cache def works. Followed what #18 said and then played into the second wave of orcs (right before the troll) and then save/exit to middle earth; the achievement popped up right away. Thanks #18

I made it in 14:20 (timed precisely with all the loadings included and cinematics I skipped) it is possible to get this achievement with the story mode, I don't know for the free play mode but it seemed longer, especially for the part after the fight where gandalf use some kind of shield. The troll battle was a pain in the butt since I didn't know if I would have enough time...

When you get to the "Save & Continue" statue in the area that Gandalf the Grey goes after the Dragon THIS IS WHERE YOU SAVE & Continue. Then hit the start button AND THEN EXIT. DO NOT SAVE & EXIT... Just EXIT. My timer from load up to achievement popping was 6:32.30. I even hit the save again. You have to finish the Dragon for Gimli to hit the last rock to escape.

July 26. Cleared the cache as per #18. Didn't install the update when I loaded the game. Loaded Moria in story mode. Played up until I got Pippin out of the well. The next area loaded. paused the game, quit to middle earth. Save and quit. Cheevo popped, NP.

If clearing the cache ain't your thing, get halfway and save at the statue. DO NOT save and exit, exit level. Load up the game again with a reset timer and hopefully a definite shot at the achievement.
|Comment #48 by asylumspadez|

Cleared the cache, Loaded the level, Collected a couple of coins, Saved and exit, and the achievement popped.
|Comment #49 by randomshat|
Saturday, October 26, 2013 @ 07:37:37 AM
Clearing the cache and saying no to the update worked a charm - you will be disconnected from xbox live though until you update so if you have your save in the cloud like me you will have to move it local first then move it back when done
