Weapon infusions are done by Andre the Blacksmith in Firelink. Infusions modify the properties of a weapon and are intended to tailor a weapon to complement your character's stats for better performance.

In order to earn this achievement, you'll need to find the four coals that "unlock" certain infusions and at least one of each of the 15 different infusion gems.

Refined, Raw, and Fire infusions are available by default.

The Farron Coal unlocks Heavy, Sharp, and Poison infusions.
From the Halfway Fortress bonfire, drop down from the ledges on the right side and follow along the right wall and enter a doorway at the end. Turn left and you will see a Black Knight. The coal is on a corpse behind him.

Specific Gem Locations
You will likely find many of these as random enemy drops, from Crystal lizards, or in various locations as you progress through the game. These are some specific locations should you be missing any.

Dropped by a Blue Knight just before the Dancer of the Boreal Valley boss room in High Wall of Lothric (where you first meet Emma just before killing Vordt).

From the Dragon Barracks bonfire, drop from the bridge then work your way around to the left and up some steps. Enter the building and the gem will be on a corpse on the right.

Obtained by defeating the Fire Demon in the Undead Settlement as part of the Siegward questline.

Given by Hawkwood in Firelink after several interactions.

On a corpse on a ledge below the first bridge in the Catacombs of Carthus (by an illusory wall that leads to a tome).

In Farron Keep near the Keep Ruins bonfire you'll find three large tree enemies gathered around an item- a poison gem.

Dropped by a crystal lizard in the grey stone structure near the Crystal Sage area.

On a corpse in the rafters area of the Cathedral of the Deep.

From the Cleansing Chapel bonfire, take the shortcut door that leads to the lift that takes you just outside the huge room with the giants. Take the second hallway on the right and the gem is on a corpse at the end.

On a corpse at the base of a monument one level below and in front of Pontiff Sulyvahn's boss door.

Dropped by a crystal lizard on the platform above the Pontiff Sulyvahn bonfire.

Dropped by a crystal lizard in the Demon Ruins found by where you drop in from Smouldering Lake.

Dropped by the giant rolling skeleton ball near the Catacombs of Carthus Bonfire that breaks when a specific enemy is killed (a skeleton wearing a black witch hat on the level above).

From the Church of Yorska bonfire, proceed through a dark room full of semi-invisible enemies. Once outside, look to the area on the right and the gem is on a corpse at the base of a tree.

From the Farron Keep Perimeter bonfire, look for a hole in the wall that leads to a ledge where the gem is on a corpse.
