This missable achievement occurs on Roche's Path towards the end of Act II, after you return from the mist and reenact the witch's burning. Shortly after, you will see the King at 11 PM, have a fight, and then meet Deathmold at the tent across from the inn. He will offer to send you on Hanmarvyn's Blue Dream, which is a necromantic ritual which will allow you to experience a memory through someone else's eyes.

Before you start this mission, Deathmold will tell you to procure the Gadwall potion. Master Myron is a merchant who is standing in front of the tent, so just walk outside, buy the formula from Master Myron, make the potion (it requires 1 each of Rebis, Vermilion, Caelum, Sol and Aether), and re-enter the tent.

Right before you drink the potion and speak to Deathmold, STOP AND MAKE MANUAL SAVE #1. There are "points of no return" in this mission, and if you go too far, you permanently miss this achievement. A backup save will prevent this. Then drink the potion, talk to Deathmold, and start the mission.

1. When you start this mission you take over the memories of Auckes. At first, you and your companion, Serrit, will run through the mountainside killing harpies. This will fade into the next section.

2. In section 2, follow Serrit closely and avoid traps. If you hit a trap, you will be kicked out of the memory and will have to restart. Serrit walks exactly where you need to, so if you stay directly behind him you'll be fine.

3. You will be in the camp. STOP AND MAKE MANUAL SAVE #2, in case you don't get this right. There will be two guards in front of you. One will go right and disappear, the other will go forward. As this guard walked forward, I walked up and hid behind the first tent on the right. He stopped, looked behind him, and continued. I then moved up between the first and second tent on the right. The guard doubled back and walked right past me, and then I continued down the path and made a right. This takes you to the next sequence.

4. MAKE MANUAL SAVE #3 RIGHT WHEN THIS STARTS. THIS IS THE POINT OF NO RETURN. For this section you walk behind Serrit for 10 seconds. That's it. And then you go to section 5...

5. You're going to fight a half dozen soldiers here. If you die, you get kicked out of the memory and will miss out on the achievement (unless you reload one of the backup saves I asked you to make). The soldiers aren't any tougher than the ones you've already fought, so play to your strengths and take them out. THE ACHIEVEMENT POPS AFTER THIS SECTION.

6. You already have the achievement, and the final fight is just for fun. It doesn't end well.
