This ability is earned at Level 26 in MP. Once you have earned the ability you can earn it when you are near death. You have to either mash out of a Steel on Bone sequence and then quickly perform it before an enemy hits you with an Obliteration, or use it when someone just nearly kills you. You'll know you are in the right state when you clutch your stomach and only hold your sword with one hand. A prompt will come up asking you to press when it's available. You can be interrupted until your screen turns red and it must complete to earn the achievement. Online MP only!
