Introduction:
This is my Witcher 2 roadmap to help you plan to get your 1k in 2 playthroughs. It’s not an achievement guide, but I did add small descriptions on how or what. The list is in order when you can first get them or when I got them. I also broke it down in the 2 different paths.

General info:
This game requires 2 playthroughs to 1k it. (~1.75 actually if you start on Dark). Reason is, near the end of Chapter 1 you have to pick a path (Iorveth or Roche).

I suggest to start on easy/normal on your first, because Dark can be very annoying/unforgiving if you start here right away. Since you have to play it twice anyway, easy/normal is a good way to start and enjoy the game. Then you can rush through Dark in ~10 hours if you want.

I also suggest going with Iorveth on your first normal/easy playthrough, cos I found it easier than Roche's path. The steps to 1k are easy enough and they are:

Step 1: Normal/easy playthrough with Iorveth and kill the trolls.

Step 2: Dark playthrough with Vernon Roche and spare the trolls.

Step 3: Finish 30 arena rounds. 

Preparations/tips:
-Arena is separate from the game, handy to get to fight 30 to try out skills and the fighting.
-For your first playthrough, kill all (3) trolls. Trollslayer will pop during chapter 2.
-Spare all 3 on your second (there’s actually a 4th with Vernon, not sure if he counts)
-Read this WIKI and try to get as many abilities as you can on your Dark playthrough.
-Try do do most of the quests on your first playthrough to reach level 35 for Guru.
-I went 95% magic on my Dark playthrough, once Igni is upgraded the game becomes a lot easier.
-Perfectionist is easy to get at the start of chapter 2, when you are under a magical umbrella. Just tag 10 enemies without getting hit.
-Miser, this is not cumulative, you need 10k at once and it’s easy if you loot/harvest a lot.


Skill tips:
-Try to save up some points during chapter 2 (8-9 I think), make a save and get the mutant ability. Then reload and spend them like you want to.
OR
For getting the 3 adrenaline ability achievements (the mutant/heliotrope/group finisher) It's much for practical to instead do the quest From a Bygone Era as you are able to fully respec, simply make a save before you talk to the Operator. This is just easier than holding onto points imo. 
-Ricochet and Focus need to be unlocked in the trees. Once unlocked, hold block when you isolated some archers and it pops when you killed 1. For Focus, lock on to an enemy and press A when indicated.

Note: some achievements take a few seconds to unlock.

Prologue missable:
-Eagle Eye, when the king asks you to aim the ballista, look for a small character in the distance.

Chapter 1 missables:
-Librarian, just keep your eyes open during the asylum quest. Last of the 4 pages is in the wraith room.
-Man of the Shadows, during Indecent Proposal. Take your time and don’t get detected, stun all the guards you can. Make sure to find the kayran trap part at the end outside or you will miss Artful Dodger later!
-Artful Dodger, just press A where it shows you to plant the trap to instakill a tentacle when it hits. (must craft kayran trap beforehand ofcourse)
Important: finish the nekker and endrega quests for Pest Control in chapter 3!

Chapter 2 general missables:
-Friend of Trolls/Trollslayer, just either kill or spare trolls during an entire playthrough.
If you want to save them, you will have to finish their quests and save the last troll from enemies.

Chapter 2 Iorveth missables:
-Blackops, don’t get detected while trying to sneak through the Kaedweni camp.
Important: finish the harpy nest quest for Pest Patrol in chapter 3!

Chapter 2 Vernon Roche missables:
-Tourist, just follow Zyvik around.
-Gladiator, don’t forget to drop by here and win all 4 fights. (Talk to Proximo)
-Heartbreaker, for free eboobs, after you defeated Ves, go visit her at Roche’s camp. Pick the right options (very obvious) and do what you want.
-Necromancer, there's 5 (6) easy parts you need to complete.
-Reasons of State, just pick the right option to get this bleepie. It’s during the cutscene after you fight the king.
Important: finish the rotfiend quest for Pest Patrol in chapter 3!

Chapter 3 general missables:
-Pest Control, this pops after you turn in the gargoyle quest.
-Sensitive Guy/Witch Hunter, make a save when you are heading to the tower with the dragon. Pick either to remove or leave the diamond when you meet up with Síle and reload.
-Avenger/Old Friends, make a save before you walk up to Letho, reload and pick other option. 

Chapter 3 Iorveth missables:
-Spellbreaker, start by helping Philippa out of the prison. Don't go rescue Triss!
-Dragonheart, choose "Walk away".

Chapter 3 Vernon Roche missables:
-Kingmaker, don't go rescue Triss!
-Being Witcher George, choose "Kill the dragon".

Threesome15
Kill three foes at once by performing a group finisher. 

To be able to perform a group finisher you need to upgrade unlock Combat Acumen in the Swordmanship Skill Tree (see “Swordmaster”). This will allow you to build a meter which. Once it’s full you can execute a finishing move by pressing up on the d-pad.

If you execute a finisher amidst three or more human enemies, then a cut-scene will begin showing Geralt pull off a flowing three kill attack. The achievement will then unlock. Beware, this will only work if you are surrounded by human enemies. If there is a creature in the group, Geralt will only attack the creature

To Be Continued…50
Finish the game at any difficulty level. 

See "Madman."

Swordmaster10
Acquire the Combat Acumen ability. 

To earn the Swordmaster Achievement you need to unlock the Combat Acumen ability. It’s on the Swordmanship Skill Tree. You need 7 talent points to unlock it. Once you do, you’ll get the achievement.

Note: If you don't want to invest in this skill, make sure you save before you spend the talent points. Then you can go back to your save with the talent points intact.

Note: You cannot earn this while playing the arena mode.

Note: You can get the Swordmaster, Mutant, Master Alchemist, and Master of Magic achievements in one go, by using the From a Bygone Era side mission on Iorveth's path in the correct manner. Follow the walkthrough here.

Ricochet10
Kill a foe by deflecting his own arrow at him. 

To be able to unlock this achievement you have to upgrade the Arrow Redirection ability in the Training tree to level 2. This will allow you to hold RT in order to deflect arrows back at the shooter.

Once this is done you have to find an enemy armed with a bow or a crossbow. Many enemies carry them, but Bandits are often equipped with them so explore the forests around Vergen.

Bear in mind that this achievement may not unlock first time. If it doesn’t, swap swords and try again. This should do the trick.

The Fugitive5
Complete the Prologue. 

Story related, can't be missed.

Tried-and-True10
Survive your 5th fight in the Arena 

See "Last Man Standing."

Poker!30
Roll five-of-a-kind at dice poker. (6) 

Aside from the method below (which only some have found useful), this is purely based on luck. However, there a few things you can do to make your task a little easier.

First off, you are advised to try and earn the achievement at the earliest opportunity. That means playing the opponent in Foltest's camp at the very beginning of the game. This is preferable because later, better opponents are more likely to fold if your first roll contains three or more of-a-kind.

The most straight-forward approach is simply to hold any duplicates over for your second roll, even if you have just two matching dice.

Be aware that the achievement is based on you having five-of-a-kind at the end of your hand, not after your first roll. If you are lucky enough to roll five-of-a-kind first time, merely hold all of your dice.

Note: The video below outlines an exploit of sorts. Bear in mind that some people have found it unhelpful.

Perfectionist15
Kill 10 foes in a row without losing any Vitality. (5) 

You can save to protect your progress in this achievement. So after you’ve defeated a few enemies without losing any vitality, save your game. Then if you get hit, you can simply reload. You do not have to earn this achievement during a single encounter.

The easiest place to get this is during the prologue, before and after you fire the Ballista. In these encounters, small, manageable waves of enemies will attack. Remember, this doesn’t have to be done in one encounter, so the Ballista firing section will not impede your progress. Make sure to make liberal use of your block.

Last Man Standing15
Survive your 30th fight in the Arena (1) 

The option to choose the Arena is found under “Start New Game.”

You can die as many times as you like on the way to earning this achievement. You can also lower the difficulty to Easy. However, you cannot save, so you have to do it in one sitting.

Make sure you use Quen regularly, keep moving so as not to get swarmed, and take advantage of parry and riposte opportunities.

Note: Despite the fact that you can earn up to 35 talent points and 10K Orens in the arena, they do not contribute to the Guru or Miser achievements.

Mutant!30
Enhance abilities using mutagens at least five times. (2) 

To mutate an ability, you need mutagens. Mutagens can be picked up throughout the game or bought from merchants. Picking up mutagens is preferred because they can be expensive when bought, and they do not weigh very much, meaning you can carry them without getting over-encumbered.

Only certain abilities can be mutated and they have to be reached in the skill tree before you can mutate them. The list of mutate-able abilities can be found below. Enhance your abilities with mutagens five times to unlock the achievement.

Training Tree

  • Fortitude
  • Arrow Redirection
  • irreversible

Swordsmanship Tree

  • Combat Acumen
  • Whirlwind

Magic Tree

  • Enhanced Yrden Sign
  • Sense of Magic
  • Control over the Power

Alchemy Tree

  • Condensation
  • Metahesis
  • Berserker
  • Mutant
  • Amplification

Note: You can get the Swordmaster, Mutant, Master Alchemist, and Master of Magic achievements in one go, by using the From a Bygone Era side mission on Iorveth's path in the correct manner. Follow the walkthrough here.

Master of Magic10
Acquire the Sense of Magic ability. (2) 

To earn the Master of Magic Achievement you need to unlock the Sense of Magic ability. It’s the penultimate ability on the Magic Skill Tree. You need 7 talent points to unlock it.

Note: If you don't want to invest in this skill, make sure you save before you spend the talent points. Then you can go back to your save with the talent points intact.

Note: You cannot earn this while playing the arena mode.

Note: You can get the Swordmaster, Mutant, Master Alchemist, and Master of Magic achievements in one go, by using the From a Bygone Era side mission on Iorveth's path in the correct manner. Follow the walkthrough here.

Guru50
Achieve character level 35. 

This isn’t easy, but there are a few ways to make the journey a little quicker.

One of the most important methods is to gain the Experienced perk which offers a +10% XP boost. This is achieved by destroying 10 different training dummies. You can do this across a number of locations in the game, but it is best to do it as soon as possible.

The earliest place to get this is in Foltest’s Camp. There are 5 dummies in the area that respawn. Destroy 10 and you’ll earn the perk.

It’s also worth bearing in mind that during the endgame you’ll earn around 1000XP, so factor that in. 

Basically you’ll want to defeat every enemy, do every quest and take on as much as you can.

Journeyman10
Achieve character level 10. 

This will come naturally as you progress through the game.

Madman100
Finish the game while playing at the Dark difficulty level. (1) 

There’s no easy answer to this one. The best piece of advice is just to play to your strengths and be methodical, saving regularly.

It’s important to understand that preparing for battle is essential, as you can’t meditate while fighting. Make sure to drink your potions and enhance your blade before all fights.

At all times use the magic available to you, especially the protective sign, Quen. Whenever you leave a town, whenever you think you're going to get into a fight, use it. it absorbs enemy damage and will save your life.

Upgrade Igni. This fire sign might start out relatively weak, but invest in it a little and it will become your most powerful weapon, with a wide area of effect and lasting damage.

Crowd control. Never get bogged down in big groups of enemies. Always keep moving, diving and rolling out of the way, separate your enemies and chipping away at them. if you stay in one place you’ll either get swarmed, battered or both.

Try to achieve Combat Acumen in the Swordsmanship tree. it unlocks the ability to perform one-hit-kills, an ultra-valuable skill later in the game.

Gladiator15
Defeat all opponents in the Kaedweni arena. 

Opens up following the The Butcher of Cidaris Mission mission during Chapter 2. Return to the wall surrounding the Arena and talk to Proximo. He will offer you the chance to continue fighting in the Arena. Defeat all the opponents and the achievement will unlock.

Gambler15
Win an arm wrestling match, a dice poker game and a fist fight. 

Most easily achieved in the main inn Flotsam. Go into the bar and you will find all three activities. This is a very simple achievement.

Arm Wrestling - Move the analog stick slowly in order to keep the reticle within the moving yellow bar. Watch out, it shrinks as it gets nearer to the end.

Dice Poker - Rules are simple for anyone familiar with poker, but a full run down can be found here.

Fist Fight - Simply follow the on-screen button prompts to victory!

Torn Asunder!15
Kill more than one opponent using a single exploding bomb. 

Self-explanatory. A number of locations lend themselves to this achievement (basically anywhere with large numbers of enemies), but you can get it as early as the prologue.

In the section following the dragon attack, you will run under burning wooden structures then battle two groups of two enemies. Following this you will encounter a larger group of enemies. Your companions will keep them busy so toss a bomb into the group and the achievement will unlock.

Pest Control20
Finish all quests involing the destruction of monster nests. (1) 

In total you will have to complete 4 seperate quests in order to gain this achievement, each found on town notice boards. They are as follows:

Chapter 1:

  • The Nekker Contract (requires grapeshot bombs)
  • The Endrega Contract

Chapter 2 (Roche):

  • The Rotfiend Contract

Chapter 2 (Ivoreth):

  • The Harpy Contract

Chapter 3:

  • The Gargoyle Contract

Note: Quest completed by disabling all the runes in a certain order. Simply killing all the gargoyles is not enough.

Craftsman10
Hire a craftsman to create an item. (2) 

You can get this achievement during Chapter 1. Once you reach Flotsam, head to the Non-Human District. Here you will find two dwarves in an alley working at a forge. You should already have the recipe for a silver sword. Just buy the necessary ingredients from the dwarf and ask him to forge the item for you. Once done the achievement should unlock.

Focus30
Perform three successful ripostes in a row. 

The first thing you need to do is unlock the riposte ability from the swordsman path. Then, in combat, wait until the indicator appears above your opponent (it looks like a sword with lightning around it) and press either  or . Do this three times in a row and the achievement will unlock.

Note: Ripostes don't have to result in a kill to unlock the achievement.

Miser10
Collect 10000 orens. 

There's a few different ways of making this easier.

One way is to just stockpile items, making sure to store anything unneeded in the chests found across each chapter. Then when you think you have enough; save, then sell everything. You can go back to your save once you've unlocked the achievement.

Chest Locations:

Chapter 1 - Southwest area of the lower level of the Flotsam inn, near the door to the brothel.
Chapter 2 (Roche's Path) - Outside the encampment by the brothel tents.
Chapter 2 (Iorveths Path) - Talk to the innkeeper and use the storage chest in his room at the Cauldron.
Chapter 3 - Inside the ruined building used as an inn southwest of the notice board in Loc Muinne.

Alternatively, if you follow Roche's path, you will come across the visionary's hut in the "Path to Vision" mission. Here you have to collect Harpie ingredients. The Harpies will respawn if you go back to the hut and then come back out again. All you have to do is repeat that process until you have enough.

Thankfully, valuable Harpie feathers are light, so you will be able to carry a lot back for sale.

The Butcher of Blaviken30
Kill 500 foes. 

Should come naturally towards the end of Chapter 2. Can also be boosted by hanging around in the mists and defeating Wraiths during the "The Blood Curse" misson.

Master Alchemist10
Acquire the Mutant ability. 

To earn the Master Alchemist Achievement you need to unlock the Mutant Ability found towards the end of the Alchemy Skill Tree. You need 8 talent points in order to unlock the Mutant ability.

Note: If you don't want to invest in this skill, make sure you save before you spend the talent points. Then you can go back to your save with the talent points intact.

Note: You cannot earn this while playing the arena mode.

Note: You can get the Swordmaster, Mutant, Master Alchemist, and Master of Magic achievements in one go, by using the From a Bygone Era side mission on Iorveth's path in the correct manner. Follow the walkthrough here.

Apprentice10
Use alchemy to brew five potions or oils. 

Can be done during the Prologue. Press  to scan the area for herbs and items, pick up as many as you can, and you should have enough to brew five potions before you reach the monastery.

Press  and then  to meditate, then select Alchemy. From there look through the different potions, press  to see how many you are allowed to make and select one that allows 5 or more. Brew 5 or more at once to earn the achievement.

Secret Achievements
 
Witch Hunter10
Leave Síle to die in the unstable portal. 

After running to the top of the tower at the end of Chapter 3, you will encounter Sile trying to teleport away. 

After the discovery that the crystal in the portal is flawed, you will be given the choice of either letting Sile die or removing the crystal. Allow Sile to die and earn the Witch Hunter achievement. 

Once the achievement pops, immediately reload your last auto-save and you can remove the crystal to earn the Sensitive Guy achievement too.

Trollslayer30
Kill all the trolls in the game. 

The first troll will be encountered in Chapter 1, during the Troll Trouble quest. He’s down by the broken bridge. Kill him rather than engage with him.

Following this, the method for getting the achievement depends on the path you choose.

Iorveth’s path:

Chapter 2. In order to find Triss Merigold, who has been kidnapped by the Kingslayer, you will speak with the Troll of Vergen. Kill him. You will then encounter his wife, the She-troll, on a mountain in the southern area of Vergen. Kill her too.

Roche’s path: 

Towards the end of Chapter 2, during the The Siege of Vergen quest, you will encounter the Troll of Vergen and his wife. Kill them. Kill them all.

Friend of Trolls15
Spare all trolls in the game. 

The first troll will be encountered in Chapter 1, during the Troll Trouble quest. He’s down by the broken bridge. Talk to him, don't kill him.

Following this, the method for getting the achievement depends on the path you choose.

Iorveth’s path:

Chapter 2. In order to find Triss Merigold, who has been kidnapped by the Kingslayer, you will speak with the Troll of Vergen. Speak to him and agree to find his wife. You will then encounter She-troll on a mountain in the southern area of Vergen. Tell her that Mr Troll is looking for her.

Roche’s path: 

Towards the end of Chapter 2, during the The Siege of Vergen quest, you will encounter the Troll of Vergen and his wife. Chat to them. Don't kill them. Easy.

Tourist10
Tour the camp with Zyvik. (1) 

When you enter the camp in Chapter Two, Zyvik will escort you around, showing you the sights. You will be given the opportunity to skip the tour. DO not do this.

Follow Zyvik through the entire tour for the achievement to pop. It only takes a couple of minutes.

Artful Dodger30
Cut off a tentacle using the kayran trap. (1) 

You can get the Kayran trap during the Chapter 1 quest, Indecent Proposal. A merchant will interrupt you during a conversation with Vernon. He’ll tell you that there’s a component hidden in the rear of Leredo’s compound.

The component is called Iron Frame and is located in a glowing red chest. After listening to the conversation, you can climb the ladder to it.

Once you have it, visit the merchant Cedric and buy the Kayran Trap Diagram. You will need the following items to craft it:

1x Iron Frame (Quest Item)

2x Oil

1x Iron Ore

1x Silver Ore

During the Kayran fight, you’ll see 2 big signs glowing in the ground. Place the trap on these signs by pressing A and when the tentacle slaps on the floor, it will cut of immediately, without you having to slash at it.

Kayranslayer10
Kill the kayran. 

Lure the Kayran into attacking you with its tentacle, place a Yrden sign on the ground and then dive out of the way. When the tentacle strikes, it will get stuck. Move to the obvious weak point and slash the hell out of it with your silver sword.

Repeat the process three times, making sure to get out of the way while the Kayran flaps around after each tentacle cut.

After this you will be presented with a series of easy QTEs. Once done, a cutscene will trigger showing a bridge collapsing on the Kayran. Run up the ramp on the left to finish it off.

Note: make sure you loot the body from two seperate areas in order to get the Kayran Skin item needed for the Backbone achievement.

Reasons of State15
Stop Roche from killing Henselt. 

Towards the end of Chapter 2, you will run into a house and see a sorceress leaving through a portal. Following this you'll fight against King Henselt. After the fight, Roche enters and locks the door, with the intention of killing the king. It's your job to make sure he doesn't.

This one's nice and easy. Just pick the dialogue options that discourage Roche from killing the king.

Spellbreaker15
Help Iorveth find the dagger needed to free Saskia from the spell that holds her. 

Only available on Iorveth's path, during the Spellbreaker quest in Chapter 3. When you find Philippa locked up, you'll be forced to choose between saving her or saving Triss. Choose to save Philippa. Don't worry, the achievement only pops when you've completed the entire quest.

Black Ops20
Sneak through the lower camp without raising the alarm. 

Only obtainable by following Iorveth's path in the game. There are multiple check points throughout, making it much easier to obtain.

Man of the Shadows15
Successfully sneak through Loredo's garden and find the component of the kayran trap. (1) 

Intimidator15
Intimidate someone. (2) 

A very easy achievement. All you have to do is be successful with an Intimidate dialogue action. Intimidate dialogue options are indicated by an eye symbol with a lightning bolt through it.

You can get this achievement during the Prolouge. When you descend back into the town after encountering the locked gate, you'll see guards harrassing the locals. Speak to them and you'll be able to intimidate them.

Sensitive Guy10
Save Síle from dying in the unstable portal. 

After running to the top of the tower at the end of Chapter 3, you will encounter Sile trying to teleport away. 

After the discovery that the crystal in the portal is flawed, you will be given the choice of either letting Sile die or removing the crystal. Remove the crystal to earn the Sensitive Guy achievement.

Once the achievement pops, immediately reload your last auto-save and you can allow Sile to die and earn the Witch Hunter achievement too.

Old Friends30
Finish the game by sparing Letho. 

Save your game just before you enter the last door in the “Defeat your opponents. Go find Letho” sub-mission of The Assassins of Kings. Your mini-map will give you a good indication of how close you are.

Once through the door you will have the choice to kill or spare Letho. Choose one option, go back to your save, then do the other. That way you can earn both the Old Friends and Avenger achievements.

Necromancer50
Relive all of Auckes's memories in Dethmold's vision. 

 Help Dethmold in his Necromantic ritual.

Librarian30
Find all additional information about the insane asylum's history. 

This achievement is tied in with the In the Claws of Madness side quest.

Once in the asylum in the forest outside Flotsam, your main task will be to locate Gridley. That’s your main objective. This achievement is for finding four hospital files scattered around inside, telling the history of the asylum.

Hospital File 1

Enter the building and walk until the ghost sets the asylum on fire. Continue on until you reach an area where you can jump down. Once down, turn to your right you’ll see a chest. The first hospital file is in there.

Hospital File 2

Keep on walking until you reach a spot where you can jump down again. Once down, kill the wraiths then look for the chest. It’s to the right of the spot that jumped down into.

Hospital File 3

Talk to Gridley and head towards the fire. On your right hand side is a doorway where you will find the medicine needed. Just to the left of the room with the medicine, you’ll see another doorway. It’s difficult to see, but it’s there. Inside will be another chest, inside which is the third hospital file.

Hospital File 4

The last hospital file is found at the back of the room in which you talk to the ghost.

Dragonheart20
Spare or save Saskia. 

The opportunity for this achievement comes towards the end of the game, after the dragon impales itself on the tree. There are two different ways to get it, depending on whether you chose Roche or Iorveth's path.

Roche's path - 

Just spare the dragon and walk back to Loc Muine. 

Iorveth's path -

Will automatically unlock as you progress through the later stages of the game.

Kingmaker15
Help Roche rescue Anais from the Kaedweni camp. 

During Chapter 3, on the main quest line, you will be asked to meet Roche or rescue Triss. Meet Roche and do the quest to rescue Anais. When complete, the achievement will unluck.

Heartbreaker10
Seduce Ves. (1) 

This achievement is available on the Roche path in Chapter 2, during the Ave Henselt! side quest. 

Begin by completing the The Butcher of Cidaris quest in the Arena. As you win fights, Ves will volunteer herself as your opponent. If you defeat her she’ll invite you back to her tent in the Blue Stripes’ camp.

Go and visit Ves in the camp and give the following responses during conversation:

  • That was a great duel
  • I also feel like using this opportunity
  • She’s both brave and beautiful
  • I like that idea

The achievement should pop as soon as you pick the last dialogue option.

Eagle Eye10
Hit Count Etcheverry using the ballista. (3) 

This is the first achievement you can pick up in the game and is missable, so follow the guide carefully.

During the Prologue, you’ll be given a spyglass and asked to mark Count Etcheverry. When you gain control of the spyglass, move the center crosshair over the person on the left of the tower opposite you and press "A." 

If executed correctly, Geralt will say "one and a half degrees," the Ballista will destroy your enemies and your journal will be updated with Count Etcheverry’s info. If that doesn’t happen then re-load your last auto-save and try again, you will not get the achievement.

The achievement will eventually pop after the entire sequence finishes, by which point the auto-save will have shifted to a later point.

Fat Man15
Kill the draug. (1) 

You can pick up this achievement at the end of Chapter 2. After breaking the curse, you will fight as a series of undead soldiers. The final fight puts you up against the Draug. 

You can defeat the Draug by trapping him with Yrden. He will resist a couple of Yrden efforts, but once he gets stuck you are free to take him out. Repeat the process to win. Once the Draug dies, the achievement will unlock.

Being Witcher George20
Kill the dragon. 

You can pick up this achievement at the end of Chapter 3, during Roche's path. After the dragon is impaled on a tree you will be offered the chance to either kill or spare it. Choose to kill the dragon for the achievement.

Backbone20
Craft a suit of armor from elements of the kayran's carapace. (1) 

After you kill the Kayran in Chapter 1, loot its body. There are two locations on the body to loot, so make sure you collect from both. You will need these items to craft the suit of armour.

Once you have the items, return to Flotsam to collect your reward. One of the items will be a diagram to make the Kayran Skin Armor. It will show that you need the following items to craft the armour.

Kayran Armor

  • 14x Robust Cloth
  • 6x Hardened Leather
  • 1 Kayran Skin
  • 8x Twine
  • 375 Orens

You can buy Twine, Hardened Leather and Robust Cloth from the merchant Fioravanti who is found at the south side of the main square in Flotsam, in front of Louis Merse's house. He’ll also sell you diagrams to make Hardened Leather and Robust Cloth, the ingredients of which are below.

Hardened Leather

  • 3x Leather
  • 2x Oil
  • 5 Orens

Robust Cloth

  • 3x Cloth
  • 1 Twine
  • 1 Diamond Dust
  • 5 Orens

Once you have everything you need, travel to the craftsman Berthold Candeleria in the Nonhuman District of Flotsam. He will be able to craft the armor for you.

Avenger30
Finish the game by killing Letho. (1) 

Save your game just before you enter the last door in the “Defeat your opponents. Go find Letho” sub-mission of The Assassins of Kings. Your mini-map will give you a good indication of how close you are.

Once through the door you will have the choice to kill or spare Letho. Choose one option, go back to your save, then do the other. That way you can earn both the Old Friends and Avenger achievements.
