Once you have 50 points into the might skill tree you can unlock the riposte ability (Brutal Weaponry IV) for longswords, greatswords, and hammers.(Left hand side, 4 up)

If you have 50 points in the finesse skill tree you can unlock Punishment (Precise Weaponry IV) in it for a "from parry" attack for daggers that works towards this achievement.

To use these abilities do a timed parry (use the shield/block button just before an enemy's attack hits you) and attack directly after it hits. (I just spammed x during the parry)

The full 3 hit combo doesn't have to land, when I got it I only landed the full combo a couple of times.

I popped this achievement in Castle Yolvan (Northwest in the Webwood territory) as there are many giant rats and venomspitters which are easy to parry against because they get into an attack stance, and jump at you making it easier to know when to block.

**Alternatively the Universalist destiny will unlock all weapon mastery abilities including the ones needed for this achievement.
Thanks to 'Rei Anime Geek' for this.**
