This takes some time, but very doable. First, a short note about acquiring the achievement: You need to talk to the Enchantress after obtaining the final rune for the achievement to actually unlock. It will not unlock after collecting the final rune from a Fairy Chest.

Now, getting those chests. Here are a number of tips and ways to consider going after it. Let's examine this by looking at the individual room types:

- Kill All Enemies: Killing all enemies take two main forms. The one is usually a large room with numerous platforms where you all you need to do is survive and take down all the enemies in the room. One of them is usually a harder version of a creature. The other type is a room where you are unable to move towards the enemy. You are divided by an impassable wall. For this, you would need to have the right spell to have a chance to kill them. Usually this includes need the axe, the scythe, or crows. If you do not have them, you won't have a shot at the chest. You might want to have the Archmage as your class to have a better chance of getting the spell you need as you can cycle through a few spells. NOTE: The Lich is the only class that can use the Crows.

- Reach Me Quickly: This is usually an empty room (or a lightly guarded room with minimal enemies or traps) where you need to get across the area as quick as possible. This usually lasts for about 5 seconds or less. I have found that having a dash rune makes it fairly easy to get each time.

- No Jumping: This usually requires you have multiple dash runes to cross a gap, or is a maze where you need to drop down. The latter case is more luck based as a result. For not jumping, I cannot confirm whether or not the Dragon class flying counts against. If someone could confirm please let me know and I'll make the edits. NOTE: Thank you slysy for confirming flying with the dragon does not count as jumping. So there is an easy way to get through these challenges if you are a dragon.

- Take No Damage: There are numerous types here. I will try to list them. Traps are commonly part of this type. Usually, that entails spike traps or flame traps. The other kind frequently has spike balls. Either the knights holding them (usually two per enemy) or numerous just floating in the room. The best ways to consider this is to be patient and observe the patterns before making your move. Another strategy here is to consider the Hokage class. The replacement move can help you avoid damage and possibly reach the chest. Also, having a character who is smaller will help a lot as well. In some cases (spike chain knights), you might be able to kill the enemies to make the journey easier, but that is not necessarily possible.

- No Fighting: Usually a vertical movement room where you can't attack the opponents in the room. I've frequently failed this because I attack on instinct when I enter a room. You'll play this similar to how you would a take no damage room, but there is no opportunity to take down enemies.

-No Looking: This one is very rare and funny more than anything else. You need to not look at the chest. Therefore, you would need to air dash backwards towards it. It's very infrequent to see, but you should have a dash rune equipped to get it.

- No Condition/Secret Rooms: These are randomly occurring, but you can see them if you are careful about looking for it. It is frequently a small room where there is a fake floor or ceiling you can jump or pass through. The Fairy Chest is hidden in the walls and you can open it there.

If you have issues with any of these rooms types, you don't necessarily need to do them. You can always find a different room and then find the rune some other way that suits your play-style better. It will just take more time or runs through the castle to finish everything. Even as you find yourself towards the end of a run through all the bosses, considering exploring the whole castle to see if there are other chests you can get. This can also help you gain a lot of extra gold for purchasing upgrades.

There are 55 total runes to acquire. Two of them are available from the start so that leaves you with 53 fairy chests to acquire.
