    In "The Wolds" territory in the Plains of Erathell there is a woman named Singing Nell that lives in a tent just outside of Ayten (east side) When you talk to her she will give you the quest "The Erathell's Blessing" send you south to Windstone circle to activate the stones and receive a blessing. If the stones are activated in any order other than ascending from lowest to highest note, a Niskaru hunter will spawn in the center of the circle. While you won't receive any experience points, or any good loot from them, they do count towards the achievement, so just run in a circle activating the stones, kill the Niskaru and repeat.

    **Note: Once you receive the blessing, as far as I am aware, you won't be able to activate the stones anymore other than to receive the blessing again, so get the achievement before doing so.**

    Thanks to EL HORSE for reminding me of the quests name.

    N7 TiggerI just killed well over 25 of them at this spot on top off the 5 or 6 I'd already killed and no achievement. Does not work.

    Easier way to accomplish this is to just complete the Warsworn questline. You will fight plenty of Niskaru as you go. It popped for me toward the end of the quest line when your trekking up a big mountain.

    Unless you're trying to get achievements as early as possible, you don't need to worry about this one. You should get it as you play through the main story, and definitely if you do the warsworn quests. In later areas, Niskaru are normal respawning monsters.

    This isn't so much of a solution as it is an addition to some of the solution already posted on here. When doing the Traveler's story missions, a later one will take you to an area called the Blackened Hall, where you need to retrieve an artifact needed for this story mission. Inside the Blackened Hall are several Niskaru, usually in packs of 2 or 3.

    Other than that, go with the Warsworn missions, too, as stated previously in other solutions.
