You can't get back into the Arena after completing it, so you only have one chance at this achievement, though it's not too hard. Make a hard save before entering the Arena. Never press B after a round; always press A to continue. The crowd meter doesn't matter. If you die and it makes you reload a checkpoint, if the counter for this achievement isn't still going up, you need to go back to your hard save.

Stock up on health and mana potions to be safe. Magic is your best friend here, particularly an area of effect spell like Enflame. It may also help to grab a Legendary weapon, but it's certainly not required. You can find them here:

Fable AnniversaryHorde ModeThe Horde Mode achievement in Fable Anniversary worth 20 pointsSome weapons are Legendary, and we feel it's worth you collecting at least 10 of them.

Round 1: Wasps

Wasps can be killed with your melee weapon if you want to save your mana. Or just blast them repeatedly with something like Enflame.

Round 2: Hobbes

Hobbes will quickly surround you while a magic flinger takes shots at you. I found it best to get near the magic users with RB (roll) and then use Enflame repeatedly.

Round 3: Balverines

Balverines are jerks and can hit hard and fast. I once again went with Enflame. It's a little harder to get them close together, but it's still effective.

Round 4: Undead

Undead are slow and clumsy. You can really take them out however you feel comfortable. Arrows work well, but if you're not worried about mana consumption, Enflame once again will blast them.

Round 5: Bandits

You've faced many bandits by this point. With so many of them coming at you so quickly, I once again went with Enflame.

Round 6: Earth Trolls

The trolls are a pain. Keep a troll between you and the other troll so you only have to worry about one. Stay close and melee until he pounds the ground and roll out of the way (RB). Then get back in and keep attacking. A spell like Slow Time would help here. Staying in this spot will also grab you this achievement if a rock from one troll connects with the other:

Round 7: Rock Trolls

The strategy for Rock Trolls is exactly the same as Earth Trolls. They just have much more life and a couple extra attacks, but the same strategy works.

Round 8: Arachanox

Much easier than rounds 6 and 7. Use your bow to get in as many strong shots as possible. You'll do extra damage for hitting him in the center eye. When he attacks, just roll out of the way.

Again, if for any reason you don't get this achievement, you need to reload your hard save and try again, as you cannot re-enter the Arena once this quest is done.

After round 8, you'll unlock this achievement. After completing the quest, you'll receive this one:
