They Was All "Hey That's Mine"

Unsheath 5 swords from Immortal Skeletaurs without leaving the area  

During the mission "Denial, Anger, Initiative", you will come to a battle arena with a giant tree in the middle of it. In order to progress the story you must defeat 4 ghost kings. Some of the lesser enemies that spawn during the first half of the fight are the Immortal Skeletaurs.

Once you kill one, walk up to it and "unsheath" the sword sticking through its body. There will be a prompt to press and pull it out. They will keep coming back to life until you pull the sword from their corpse (hence the Immortal part of their name). Any Immortal Skeletaurs killed on this map will count toward the total so long as you haven't travelled since killing them. I killed 2 prior to getting to the arena and the achievement unlocked upon pulling the sword from my 3rd Skeletaur during the fight. If playing co-op any swords pulled by any member of your party will count toward the total and you will all get the achievement.

Note: If you failed to get this by the end of the campaign, you can go back to the same arena later and redo the fight to find enough of these guys in the same area.

Easy to obtain. When I was helping the White Knight, lots if these enemies showed up. Easy.

During the quest "My Dead Brother" (obtained by talking to Simon the Wizard in the Lair of Infinite Agony) 4 of these enemies will appear. To find the final enemy I'd recommend going into the room north of the venting machines.

i recommend getting this in the slaughter dome by the 5th round you should get it. what you have to do is take the swords out of the skeletons backs when you down them.

Got this one using "Dead Brother" quest. You just have to press X near a Immortal Skeletaur corpse to unsheath the sword.

When you get to the tree and *Spoiler Alert* your guide reveals himself as the handsome wizard, there should be at least 4, if not more and if you have been to the graveyard area of the forest, then there are at least 2 there. This only really works if you are playing through the story. For an easier time, you could use a high level character and play through it on the easiest difficulty.

A bs achievement in my book. It is completely dependent on how many of these guys the game wants to spawn. If it only spawns 4 in an area (which is very likely) you won't get the achievement.

Why have the "without leaving the area" loop hole? I would rather the achievement be kill a certain number of these guys total than to have it depend on how many the game randomly spawns per area at any given time.

I know I have killed at least 7 of these guys total, but there have never been 5 on the same map.

Confirmed that if you have finished the DLC main story quests and still don't have this, go back to The Forest and to the giant tree and at least 5 will spawn....
