    I just got this achievement in Tycho's Ribs.

    As soon as you enter the first area with enemies, a Lost Legion Eternal will spawn from a building on the right. I shot him a few times so he'd ascend. If he didn't become a Magus, I'd save and quit, then repeat until he did.

    As an Eternal Magus, he will lob projectiles at you. You need to weaken other enemies and stay close to them so the Magus' projectiles will hit them. It took me several tries to get the Magus to kill three enemies, at which point the achievement popped.

    Note: he can kill the enemies one at a time. All three do not have to be killed simultaneously.

    DrSchlepensteinGreat solution, some things that I would add to your solution:

    1) Best done with an overleveled character. Preferably one that is Level 40+.
    2) Do it on Normal Difficulty
    3) Best to have a capacity shield, preferably Absorption or Turtle shield.
    4) Max sure to unequip/replace any equipment (other than guns) that can damage enemies passively, such as Nova Shields or Spike Shields, and in case you have the one O2 kit that can damage enemies with electric, its called 3DD1.E, its a legendary. As if these damage and kill the enemies, it won't count.
    5) Make sure to have your character spec'd out properly. Points in anything that increases Health and Shields, and no points in anything that can passively cause enemies damage. Such as Wilhelm's skills Kinetic Armor (can cause explosive feedback to close range enemies) and Hazmat Containment System (can pass status effects to enemies). As if these kill the enemies, it doesn't count.

    I was using a Level 41 Wilhelm on Normal when I was trying to get the Magus to spawn and each time I did, I couldn't get it to unlock. Mainly because my shield was a Spike, I was using Wilhelm and forgot about his Kinetic Armor skill, or the O2 kit would would end up getting the kill. I removed/replaced all of that, still had trouble getting it, damn Elemental Barrels in the area took a couple out on a few runs. I actually got it to work from sheer luck as shown in the other solution. I was lucky enough to get an Unstable one to spawn, and had 3 close enough that when it exploded it took them with it.

    danwood11I took out the guardians first and then used a combo of the soldiers at the top, and then down the hill. Turret DOES count.

    psybOltOnCouldn't even spawn a mage when I tried, and always reloaded to get the mage.
    Got the achievement accidentally when an Instability Eternal exploded next to me, taking down 3 others with him.
    Just run in, shoot the Eternal, hide behind the shack and if you are lucky the Eternal blows up all the guys gathering there to get a shot at you.

    This is much easier to do in Vorago Solitude. There is a camp with multiple Lost Legion and a few Elites. I froze the soldiers and just let the Magus shatter the ice.

    Just as an extra note to add to vSully's guide. When you reach the 1st room in tycho ribs, if the eternal that spawns from the door on the right does not ascend into a magus, kill him and another 2 eternals can be spawned from that house just by killing the previous eternal.

    While I dont have a separate solution, I did just earn this a few minutes ago, and can add that the SAM turret nearby and the likes of Cheru Guardians being killed/ destroyed also count for this, as it popped for me after 2 Cherus and the turret got killed and no Lost Legions!
