You must have this 10.000 orens in your pocket all at once. The moment you have that much money the achievement will pop.

So how to lay your hands on that much money? I think the two ways of earning money that make sense are arm wrestling and grinding harpy´s. Both you will find in act 2.

If you sided with Iorweth
- get into the tavern, there you find Corden and Dalin for endless armwrestling. Fight against Corden (35 gold per win).
- For Harpy´s theres a big spawn at the canyon (where you get the quest to collect the feathers and to trap them - dont lay any traps until you have enough from farming!). Kill them all, harvest the body parts, go away and meditate for 12 hours, repeat. The bodyparts of these beasts net you a good amount of money

If you sided with Vernon Roche
- for arm wrestling, beat here all oponents. The last one will be Adam Pangratt in the upper camp. Beating him will net you 100(!) Orens every time you win.
- for harpy´s, on your map northeast of the Kaedwin Camp is a little house with a man called "The Visionary". First time you get to him, there is an endless spawn of harpys, just don´t go near him across the line of candels (he will call you all the time to do it, turn of your volume and ignore it ^^).
*Update* - Even if you pass the line of candles, every time you talk to him and go outside of the house 4 - 6 harpies will spawn. Takes a bit longer but still a good and quick way ;)

This should net you 10.000 orens without that much problem, if you have enough of grinding and playing arm wrestling, make a save and sell all your stuff like mentioned before from Hoitech. Should net you about 1.500 - 2000 orens at the end of act 2 if you were not to lazy in harvesting stuff ;)
