Mass Ruckus - Equip elite items into all slots (10 gs).

This achievement is unlocked by equipping Elite level (PURPLE) items in all of Death's Equipment Slots. So - Primary, Secondary, Chest, Legs, Hands, Feet, and Talisman - Must all be Elite (Purple) items.

One tricky part here is that the named weapons, will not count as Elite. For instance, early on in the game you are given a named pair of primary weapons and a secondary weapons (can't recall the exact name). I consider these to be "Legendary Weapons," and have a orange/yellow border around them. They normally have a backstory to them, and some special effects. For some reason, even though these are often better than the elite level items, they will NOT trigger the achievement. So, make sure that every item is Elite (purple), and the achievement is yours.

*Update* 9.6.12
Just wanted to post a few tips for obtaining the Elite (Purple) Items.

The EASIEST way to earn this achievement would be to purchase them from one of the Vendors in the world. Vendors include: Vulgrim, Alya, Muria, and Osteogoth. All of these characters will carry some form of the Elite (Purple) items on them, though at any given time they may not have an Elite (Purple) item for sale to equip in the slot you are seeking. However, the Vendors' inventories are constantly changing, so if they don't have what you need at that given moment, come back later. I've yet to have any problems with currency in this game (not having enough, that is) and I've never done any farming or anything like that. Just pick up all the items you can and sell everything you won't use.

After this would be Quest Rewards and Boss Drops. Most of the times, a boss will drop at least an Elite (Purple) item, if not a Legendary (Orange) item. Also, you will get Elite (Purple) items as rewards from some of the more central quests.

Lastly, you have random drops and chests. Sometimes, a random enemy will drop a Elite (Purple) item, or you will find one inside of a chest. However, this is nothing but a pure chance of luck. I've yet to see any equations or algorithms differentiating the drop % of Elite (Purple) items. So, this would be the longest and most tasking way to earn this achievement.

Hope these will help you out a little bit. Just trying to expand on the original solution.

Good luck and happy hunting!
