I got it while grinding for the Miser achievement. I found this on another Achievements forum, and it works well, even on Dark difficulty (depending on your equipment, I suppose). If you're on a lesser difficulty, it should be no problem regardless of equipment.

Note: At this point, I was level 17, had the Armor of Ban Ard equipped, and was using a Robust Red Meteorite Sword (silver) enhanced with a Fire rune. Playing on Dark difficulty.

When you get the "Visionary" quest (Roche's path -- not sure if the same is true for the Iorveth path, anybody know?) you'll come to the Visionary's cabin. Four harpies will attack. Kill them, go back up the path (or into the candle circle) and repeat. They keep respawning. If you're getting through them quickly, it shouldn't take long. This unlocked for me after just a few minutes. Apparently I had done quite a bit of fighting leading up to that point anyway.

This is also a good way to get the Miser achievement. Just sell the Harpy loot once you stock up.
