    You get this achievement for beating the game, it pops after the credits stop.

    Here's a road map on how to beat the game.

    You can still do everything after beating the final boss in the Throne of Want (you'll need a soul of a giant before the boss pops up in the Throne though). After beating the final boss, you can hit NG+ whenever you want by clicking the Majula bonfire. I recommend slaughtering every NPC you can for giggles and loot before NG+ The hag ladies you meet in the beginning of the game drop 8 human effigies if you kill them!

    I finished the game around level 190 but only because I knocked off all the NG achievements first. Realistically most people finish the game around level 100-120.

    TheDayWalker888 Ok I finished NG, my question is will I get any special items by killing the giant lord before killing Nashandra? If so , is the item needed for any achievement? I actually have killed the giant lord first, then killed defender and watcher, but I was killed by Nashandra. So that respwaned and used the defender souls for the defender great swords , and when I come back to the final boss area , I don't see the duo bosses anymore , but just Nashandra and I killed her and received her souls, I am just wondering if I have missed any items , since technically I was not fighting her right after duo bosses?

    AllOvaMyself In the solution you say that you need a Soul of a Giant for Nashandra to appear, but this is not the case. The Souls of a Giant merely lower King Vendrick's defenses and have no bearing on Nashandra.

    However when you kill the Giant Lord in the Memory of Jeigh you'll receive, in addition to his soul, the Giant's Kinship "key". It is the Giant's Kinship that makes Nashandra appear after the Throne Watcher/Defender fight.
