This achievement is storyline based, and impossible to miss. You earn it after beginning Chapter 4.

At the end of Chapter 3 you'll encounter a big flying boss called Garuda Interceptor. He's got a pretty wicked attack that can hit you for about half your life in one shot.

To beat him easily you're going to want to start off the battle using the Libra ability. This will allow your two other characters to use Aero effectively. Keep your Paradigm set to Relentless Assault, and the first version of the boss will go down quickly.

After a quick cutscene,you're ready for version 2. Don't worry about healing because you'll have full life at the beginning of the fight. Keep your Relentless Assault paradigm for the majority of the fight, only switching to your healing paradigm when you notice your character get low on life. It may seem like you aren't doing anything, but eventually the Garuda will reach its breaking point, and the fight will end quickly from there.

From start to finish the fight took me around 8 minutes.
