This achievement requires completing Lucatiel of Mirrah's dialogue driven questline and summoning her to three boss battles which she must survive. You can repeat boss battles by use of Bonfire Ascetics and can even repeat the same boss three times.

This achievement is missable but can be gotten postgame after defeating the final boss but before moving on to NG+ AS LONG AS YOU HAVE NOT TALKED TO LUCATIEL ONCE SHE HAS MOVED TO ALDIA'S KEEP. Once you talk to her there, she disappears for good and if you haven't brought her along for three boss battles at that point, she won't give you her gear and you won't encounter her again until your next playthrough.

You first meet Lucatiel in the Lost Bastille. Talk to her there (always exhaust all dialogue) and she will relocate to the No-man's Wharf bonfire. Talk to her there and she will relocate to Earthen Keep at the bonfire immediately after the Covetous Demon. Talk to her there and she will relocate to the Black Gulch in a path that can be reached by dropping down to a ledge along the right side of the area not too far from the first bonfire (use a torch for better visibility). Talk to her here and she will relocate to Aldia's Keep.

Edit: it's entirely possible to talk to Lucatiel in No-man's Wharf before the Lost Bastille as you can go to either of these areas before the other.

The four bosses that Lucatiel can be summoned for are:
Versatile Sentry in No-man's Wharf (her summon sign in in a house about halfway between the bonfire and the boss)
Lost Sinner at Sinner's Rise (her summon sign is at the bottom of the lift)
Smelter Demon at Iron Keep (her summon sign is right outside the boss fight)
The Rotten at the Black Gulch (her summon sign is right next to the second bonfire)

I got this achievement after defeating the final boss. I had advanced Lucatiel to the Black Gulch in my playthrough but I had never summoned her to a boss battle, so I started by talking to her in the Black Gulch to advance her to Aldia's Keep. I made sure she was there BUT I DID NOT TALK TO HER.

I then used a bonfire ascetic on the No-man's Wharf bonfire.

WARNING: this resets all enemies and loot in the area and makes the enemies in the area as difficult as they would be in NG+. Furthermore, it carries on through successive playthroughs so in this area in NG+, the enemies will be as strong as they would be in NG++. Be sure that you are willing to accept this permanent change before using a bonfire ascetic!

I dashed past everything to Lucatiel's summon sign and killed the few enemies that chased me. I then led her to the boat and sprinted to the fog door. This battle, which is equivalent to NG+, includes two smaller, super-annoying enemies that weren't in the initial playthrough battle. I did my best to stay alive for the 10 or so seconds it took Lucatiel to arrive, killed the little guys, then carefully equipped the Redeye ring so the Versatile Sentry focused on me instead of Lucatiel. Lucatiel survived the battle.

I then used a second bonfire ascetic on the No-man's Wharf bonfire and repeated the steps above to kill the Versatile Sentry a second time with Lucatiel.

Next, I used a bonfire ascetic on the Sinners' Rise bonfire. I took the lift down and killed the three big enemies and a couple of smaller guys, summoned Lucatiel, and equipped the Redeye Ring. I then sprinted to the fog door, quickly entered, and defeated the Lost Sinner with Lucatiel still alive. I did a lot of tanking (the Sinner and his two friends were focused on me), allowing Lucatiel to deal the bulk of the damage.

I then went to the Aldia's Keep bonfire and talked to Lucatiel. She gave me her gear and the achievement popped.
