Alright, the key to earning this achievement is through the use of Gandalf's "dazzle"/ stun ability. This is the attack he uses when you hold down the "B" button. It is most effective when used in a group of enemies.

The best place I've found to earn this is during the 3rd mission, "Azog the Defilier". In the second area, you'll be surrounded by swarms of enemy waves that you need to kill off in order to advance. This provides an unlimited supply of enemies to "dazzle", provided that you hold of on killing the last unique enemy needed to advance to the next area.

I am not yet sure of this, but I believe that the game only will count each enemy being dazzled a single time per life. Simply kill off the basic orcs before finishing the last required unique enemy, and new basic orcs will rush in to fill their place. Just dazzle them, kill them, rinse and repeat until you have dazzled 50. The achievement will pop after the 50th Orc is dazzled.

Feel free to ask questions, or offer suggestions to assist me in making my guides more thorough and useful. Be sure to add me as a "T.A." friend if you enjoy my guides!

Happy Hunting!
