Copying this over from my achievement guide on XBA:

In total, there are seven distinct talent trees that are each comprised of four skills. Thus, there are twenty-eight skills that you must unlock for this achievement. Such skills range from enhancing Styx's amber powers to strengthening his lethality tactics in combat.

In order to unlock these abilities, you must first obtain Skill Points (SP) by completing missions, as well as completing secondary objectives and unlocking Insignias. You can view the skills at any time by opening the Mission Menu and scrolling to the skills tab, however skills can only be unlocked at the hideout.

As a personal suggestion, it would be wise to focus on maxing out the Stealth and Equipment talent trees before anything else.

This is by far the most difficult and time consuming achievement within the game. This is due to the fact that you must complete every mission's secondary objective and obtain all four Insignias per mission. By doing this, you will then, and only then, have earned enough Skill Points to unlock every skill.

This means you'll probably be replaying missions up to three or more times as you work on completing them without any alerts (Insignia of the Shadow), without any kills (Insignia of Mercy), within the time constraint (Insignia of Swiftness), and picking up all the tokens (Insignia of the Thief).

Don't fret, you can replay missions at any point when inside the hideout, and even post-game, as Styx returns to the hideout once the narrative has concluded.

In addition to this, the Insignias do not have to be collected in one run. You can opt to replay a mission four times if necessary in order to focus on one Insignia at a time.

Overall, if you're persistent enough, this achievement will finally unlock once every skill has been purchased.
