If you want to do it legit, fast and easy, here's how to do it:

I just did mine with a friend in co-op. He being level 11, me being level 22.

We did the quest ''The Bandit Armada''.

They won't attack you on your own island, so you can gather resources and level up through your ages, and then build the dock to build Triremes/Fireships. I had my fireships upgraded to champions, trireme's nothing special. My friend also didn't had any upgrades for them.

Here comes the nice part. you need to destroy the bandit fortress, the trireme champion ship and 10 normal trireme's. Although youre playing on Elite, the ships and building are NOT elite. So both build a lot of ships, and then attack the normal trireme's and the champion trireme. Then go to the upper center of the map to see the bandit fortress. There will be Elite Toxotes Archers in front of it, take them out first,this goes pretty fast. Then get all your ships on the Bandit Fortress. Ours went down in less then 30 seconds.

All by all, this isn't so hard, but I recommend you to be at least level 10-15 before trying (having Age 3), and set your tech tree to Triremes and Fireships and upgrades.

Challenge: Keep Them Under Our Wing is an easy repeatable to beat on elite to gain this achievement. I have added a video showing the second time I beat this challenge on elite.

There is also a repeatable from Troy called 'Keeping Control' and requires you to kill 20 elite units. This can be very easily achieved in 'Keep Them Under Our Wing' elite mode to result in the achievement.

I beat this on level 21, and it could possibly be done earlier as well.

To start, unspend all technology points and use them to gain the following:

Star tech: Strong foundations - +25% health
Star tech: Fleet of foot - +15% movement speed
Star tech: Strategic defenses - -20% cost
Star tech: Enhanced fortifications - +20% damage
Star tech: Quarrying - +50 starting stone, +50% Stone conservation
Star tech: Forestation - +50 starting wood, +50% Wood conservation

Advisors cards that increase tower damage or allow for faster building will also help.

Points to remember:

-Keep two groups of villagers hot-keyed.
-Build towers surrounding the stone mine to protect villagers.
-Which ever resource you are in excess of, use those villagers to build the next tower.
-Double click towers and direct fire onto single enemies to bring them down faster.
-Once you are swamped by enemies, garrison villagers into towers.
-One at a time release them to distract enemies from attacking the towers and to repair.

Elite quests are hard versions of the normal quests and are usually repeatable quests.

Really, the only way you are going to do this is be a higher level than necessary so the color of the quest is Gray, so the standard version would be very easy.

Even then you going are going to need to build a lot and have an impressive set of gear also.

I found a way to unlock this achievement in a much easier way. While i was completing a co-op quest with my friend, i had several "World quests" where i needed to farm something.

I had to kill 10 wild elephants along with others. I was doing the co-op elite quest (or just another elite quest) and i completed the wild elephants quest while still having the elite quest uncompleted. You just need to make sure you make the last kill or just farm the kills while on the Elite quest.

Thus if you play alone, Elite could be a little hard. Therefore use my way to unlock it. I preferred to have gotten the achievement while i completed the real elite quest, but just a worldquest did the pop for me.

(about 15 mins. later we smashed the opponent into pieces and my friend got the achievement as well)

Hope this helps you all out! :)
