Just need to kill 500 monsters for this achievement, and most will get it playing naturally through the game (although I didn't). Your companion kills count as long as they're in your group, and the kills are saved in an internal counter so you can save, kill a bunch of monsters and then reload and have them all count. One thing to remember is that this is not TOTAL kills but MONSTER kills, and there is some confusion on what constitutes a monster in Risen 2. This is a list of what is known to count/not count:

DOES count: Sea Creatures (Sand Devils, Giant Crabs, Sunken Ones, Leviathans), Giant Bugs (Termite Workers, Termite Warriors, Grave Spiders), Undead (Ghouls, Warriors, Guardians), Flyers (Cave Bats, Firebirds, Gargoyles)
PROBABLY count: Bosses (Earth Titan, Kraken, Gnome-Eater, Mara)
MIGHT count: Animals (Monkeys, Jaguars, Panthers, Warthogs, Alligators, Gorillas)
DON'T count: Humans (Pirates, Savages, any named NPC), Vermin (Rats, Turkeys, small Monkeys, Tamed Warthogs)

I personally don't think animals count for this achievement, but enough people have claimed to unlock it from killing one so I'm not entirely sure (my achievement popped after killing a Giant Crab for the record). My advice is to concentrate on what we know to count as monsters and here are a few good places where they can be found:
Isle of Thieves (~55 monster kills available)
Storm Island (~45 monster kills available)
Isle of the Dead (-45 monster kills available)
Termite Cave on southside of Tacarigua (13 quick termite kills)
Water Temple Entrance (6 quick sea creature kills)
Water Temple Final Battle (Leave her alone and she will continually summon waves of sea creatures)
