Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Achievements

Niskaru Slayer

Kill 25 Niskaru.  

You will get this with natural story progression.

However, there is an infinite Niskaru spawn available during "The Erathell's Blessing" side quest in Ayten if you want to knock this out quickly. Go to Ayten (first city along the road in the Plains of Etrathell) and talk to Singing Nell. She'll give you a quest to activate the five Windstones at Ayten Circle. The trick is to not activate them in the correct order, which is Lowest, Low, Medium, High, Highest. Starting at any one stone, activate each stone in a counter-clockwise motion (but not the correct pattern). This will summon a Niskaru. Defeat and repeat.

This one is easy, in The Wolds talk to singing Nell. She will put on a quest called "the erathells blessing", in which uou have to correctly activate 5 stones. Go to the stones and get the order wrong. It will then summon a Niskaru hunter. Rinse, repeat!!! The correct order for the stones, facing North on the compass is: 12 o'clock , 10 o'clock, 5 o'clock, 3 o'clock 7 o'clock. (this took me awhile!)

#1, instead of making it difficult to understand, you could just say click on the stones Lowest, Low, Middle, High, and Highest. But yes, this is where I got the achievement as well.

I actually have know idea what you are talking about. I did that quest and never realized there was a specific order. I just thought the stones spawned Niskaru as part of the story.

This was so easy to get. I had already killed several of those little bastards in a side quest and as part of one of the very first main missions, and then got the rest when I completed the final arc of the Warsworn faction quest. Easy peasy.

Another easy way to do this is when you get the the House of Valor arena that comes with the DLC there is a bounty board arena quest in which you fight Niskaru, you can replay the arena mission as many times as you want.

I got more than enough Niskaru kills doing the main questline.

This achievement is easily gained by simply playing the game, as many of the areas you'll visit contain Niskaru enemies of one sort or another.
