This achievement is for killing the Ur Dragon that lives in the Everfall. When you complete the main story, you will wake up in Cassardis and be instructed to head to Gran Soren. The quest is called "Warm Welcoming." When you complete it, you will find yourself in the Everfall. Complete the first chamber and kill the Evil Eye. After that, drop down until you land on the floor with the Chamber of Lament. In here you will find this game's real boss.Before entering the chamber, you have to make a decision though, and it's one most people would overlook. The decision is whether to fight the dragon online or offline. If you're like me, you've been playing with connectivity set to "Online" since the beginning. However, if you fight the Ur Dragon like this, his health will be impacted by the thousands of people around the world fighting him at the same time. This sounds good, but it really means that he has a ton more health and you have a much smaller chance of striking the final blow, unless you fight him for hours on end or check back and find him near death. If you do it offline, he's like any other boss. Just with A LOT more health. Unlike other bosses though, you can't feasibly kill him first time. For fellow Monster Hunter fans, think Fatalis. This boss, after 10 minutes of fighting, will leave and let you get your bearings after a likely harsh beating. You should then leave the Everfall, rest at the Inn for 1-4 days, and resupply as needed.

You can fight the Ur Dragon after closing the Everfall. This is done by finishing the remaining quests, using the Godsbane, and starting a new game+. On the beach in Cassardis, you should find a riftstone. Using it will allow you to fight the Ur Dragon.

As for tips on the Ur Dragon itself:
-DO NOT GIVE THAT GIRL THE 20 WAKESTONES. It will result in the closure of the Everfall. You have to kill the dragon before completing that quest for the achievement.

-You can only injure it by attacking its glowing pink weakspots. After a weakspot is "depleted," It'll flash white and turn dull. The spots can be anywhere from its hands to the tip of its wings.

-Start with the hard to reach spots, i.e. its back and wings. As its health gets lower, it starts getting stronger and more rowdy, making those spots very hard to reach.

-Be either a warrior or archer. Physical damage is the dragon's weakness. DO NOT BE A MAGE!!! It will take you an eternity.

-Have a mage pawn that knows "Holy Affinity," as the Ur Dragon is weak to holy light (Credit goes to Smorehead for the info)

-As expected, the Maker's Finger arrow will not 1-hit kill the Ur Dragon. It will however kill the weakspot it impacted with. So its not a terrible idea to use if there are any weakspots that are giving you trouble (Credit goes to KJT CD ACD for the info)

-If you're a Fighter or Warrior and are completely opposed to changing classes, there is a solution of sorts: destroy all the hearts except for the few on the wings and just bring only pawns who have ranged capabilities. While it may be slow, they should eventually destroy them.

And lastly, my personal tactic:
I started a lv. 46 Assassin wielding the Dragon's Dogma sword. In general, my pawns were 1 mage for healing and buffs and 2 striders to shoot arrows. If you're like me, you're gonna die. A lot. My solution to this was to stockpile wakestones by fighting the wyrm in the Chamber of Distress. Not only is it the easiest chamber, but it will also upgrade your equipment with wyrmfire. So after every 10 minute bout with the UD, I'd drop down and kill the wyrm and replenish my wakestone supply. I would also like to note that the wingtip weakspots are near impossible to hit with anything but a bow, which is why I recommend the assassin.

I think that sums it up. Good luck!
