    This has to be done in the King's Road difficulty of any dungeon you pick.

    The main concept of the ranking system is to try racking up a high hit counter when you do a combo attack and try to perform a high number of hits across all the rooms you visit in the dungeon you are currently in. At the end of the session, you are graded based on your highest combo and the rating of the combos you performed during the session. With a high enough rating and combo, you get a high rank.

    You can do this alone or with a group. If anyone or all of you in the party manage to raise the combo hits high enough in each room, you will all get the SSS rank and the achievement.

    The simple way to do this is to make sure you use abilities or attacks that can juggle enemies into the air and then hit them while they are still floating up there. If the hit counter still appears, you can keep hitting enemies in a group and raise it even more, no matter if in the air or on the ground. It's a good idea to juggle them up in the air so the rating in the end of the session gets high enough for you. Any character with the ability to do air juggling is great for this.

    Here's how I did it:

    I unlocked the achievement all by myself. I play as a LV20 Fighter, I picked the Lorien King Road. I made sure to gather plenty of goblins to either the left or right corner of the screen (I'm more comfortable with the right side), then I do two or three normal attacks on the ground before I do the uppercut ability, then while the enemies are still in the air, I attack with some normal punches on the ground, while still juggling the enemies in the air, and then I do another uppercut to continue the combo. I was able to get a 39+ hit combo (with a mix of 20-30 hits in other rooms in that mission, but you could probably get higher numbers than that), my rate was almost at 80% and I unlocked the SSS rank that way.

    Happy Hunting, TA gamers~ :3

    JORAXGreat solution! I was only able to manage combos in the mid 20s to 40s and still got SSS. I kept getting hit when the special mobs would get up. I took the direct course to the boss too, no side rooms - so this only took 4 or 5 minutes.

    Metamania2313This also works with the Slayer class as well. I did this on Lorien and set the difficulty to King. In each room, I would get the goblins together then would hit them on either side. X,X,B over and over again until I got a high combo score! I would get up to the 40s or 50s each time and when I was done, I earned an 85% and got the SSS ranking!

    t3chm4nI got it in my very first try alone with my gunner. In Lorien (obviously King Road difficulty) I just lure everything to stay together, then used my normal attack (X) 4 times and a jack spike (that kicks near enemies to the air) until no one is alive :) I got a 86 hits combo.

    My stats:
    - Gunner lvl 20
    - Complete Buffalo Leather Armor Set (for the gunner bonuses)
    - Jack Spike lvl 9 (the highest).

    So I think this is the prove that all classes are doable alone ;)

    DROGTURISTI don't know what kind of sorcery t3chm4n pulled off but I had a lot of trouble with this as a gunner. I'd add a few important things:

    - You must use a fast weapon like a revolver or repeater, the crossbow is too slow and kills your combo too often. (What I mean is that the animation to use it is fast, not that it has the weapon rating "Fast.")
    - Max out and use your BBQ skill to start out combos, and then mash whatever hotkey you have for Jack Spike so you can pull it off before the combo dies after doing the BBQ. This'll start every combo off with like 15+ hits, which is always nice.
    - Only mash X a couple of times before going for a Jack Spike, don't risk the gunner doing his "badass" pose that kills your combo.
    - Not sure what armor t3chm4n is talking about but as far as I know there are no items in the game with class-specific buffs... That confused me for a while.

    And it seems to me that item usage plays a big part as well. I had an 86% combo, 84 high combo, 5 minute run that gave me an A, most likely because I had to panic and use like 15 healing items. When I got the SSS, I only had a 70% combo rating with an 83 max combo, but I only used about 5 potions (for both HP and MP). If this is true, you'll want to equip the very best HP/MP items as I'd assume that the game only counts the amount of potions used, not how much each potion healed you.

    Solario32Great guide and helpful comments. Going to try to solo this with my slayer tomorrow.

    MattiasAndersonIf you get damaged affects and maybe also the time. Did better combo and did not get it but worse combo and got it because no one of the two players got damaged.

    The guy that helped me got 60+ combo and we did not get it. I had 25 myself but it just register the one that get the biggest combo.

    Did it again and he got 57 combo and i got 23 but this time we did barely get damaged. We also did all the rooms because we thought it could be the cause as well. (We did do that on the above attempt when i did not get the achievement as well).

    Tried to get a good time too. We got a time between 5-6 min.

    We did it in the very first level on king road like suggested.
