    This achievement is called "Mage Hunter" to obtain this achievement you must side with the Templar's five times during the game. Below are the list of quests in which you can work towards this achievement by siding with the Templar's just side with them on 5 of the below quests and the achievement is yours.

    - Wayward Son (Act 1) Choose to make him go to the Circle.
    - Act of Mercy (Act 1) Choose to turn them in.
    - Enemies Among Us (Act 1) Chose to expel him from the templars.
    - Night Terrors (Act 2) Make him tranquil by killing him in the fade.
    - Showdown (Act 3 Cut-Scene) Just side with Meredith.
    - Best Served Cold (Act 3) Find and kill the traitors, tell Meredith the names of them at the end.
    - On the Loose (Act 3) Capture/kill the mages, send the weird one in the tarvern back to the templars, choose the option that mages are bad or something along those lines when talking to Meredith.

    The solution given above is absolutely correct, but if you're like me and you don't want to play through the entire game a second time for one achievement, then you could do what I did:

    Act 1

    Wayward son: Side with the mages
    Act of Mercy: Side with the templars
    Enemies among us: Side with the mages

    Act 2

    Night Terrors: Side with the templars

    Save your game right before the battle with the Arishok

    Act 3

    Showdown: Side with the templars
    On the Loose: Side with the templars
    Best Served Cold: Side with the templars

    After you report back to Meredith, the achievement will pop. Now reload and get your Arcane Defender Achievement.

    As long as choose the templars' side twice between Act 1 and 2, as well as choose the mages' side twice, and then 3 times in Act 3, you could get both achievements in about 30 minutes. Worked for me!
