To get this achievement simply find the person/object that teaches you a gesture then learn it.

All except one of the gestures are obtained from an NPC, the other one is obtained from the Altar of Sunlight.

When obtaining from an NPC you must talk with them until their menu pops up, on which there should be an option to 'Learn Gesture'.

The Altar of Sunlight's menu should pop without the talking.

The following are default gestures:

- Point
- I won't bite
- Bow
- Wave
- Pumped Up
- Warcry
- Righty-ho!
- No Way

The following are the gestures you must obtain and their location, in order of likely appearance in game:

- Welcome: Obtained from Crestfallen Saulden who sits at the monument in Majula.

- Duel Bow: Obtained from Blue Sentinel Targray in the Cathdral of Blue, you must have a token of fidelity to talk to him. You must join the covenant for his menu to appear (see 'Protector Covenant' guide for more details).

- Mock: Obtained from Straid of Olaphis in the Lost Bastille. He is petrified in the door of a cell upstairs from the gate to the bridge that leads to Sinner's Rise. You will need to unpetrify him, then you can talk to him (if his menu doesn't appear rest at the bonfire then talk to him again).

- Fist Pump: Obtained from Creighton the Wanderer at the Undead Lockaway bonfire in Huntsman's copse. This is just past the bridge which you must pull a lever to lower. It requires a key which is found by crossing the small bridge (rather than going into the caves) and following the path up. It is loot in that area where the Scythe phantom appears.

- Praise the Sun: Obtained by using the Altar of Sunlight in Harvest Valley (see 'Brilliant Covenant' guide for directions). You do not need to join the covenant to learn the gesture.

- Prostration: Obtained from Laddersmith Gilligan in the Earthen Peak (See 'Garrulous Miser' guide for directions). Once you have bought his ladder for 2000 souls you can learn his gesture. If he has already moved to Majula before you get this then you can still learn it from him there.

- Joy: Obtained from Benheart of Jugo in Majula on the path to the Shaded Woods. You must unpetrify Rosabeth for his menu to appear when talking to him.

- Decapitate: Obtained from the Head of Vengarl in the Shaded Woods. Hug the left wall from the Ruined Fork Road bonfire to find him. He will be a head on a pile of rocks in a circular ruin.

- Warmup: Obtained from speaking with Manscorpion Tark in the Shaded Ruins once you have defeated the area boss, Scorpioness Najka. You will need the Ring of Whispers equipped (bought from Shalquoir, the cat, in Majula). He is in a ruined building. From the bonfire go up to the open area then turn left and go to a large ruined building. Enter through its door, go down the stairs, and outside. Tark will be down to your right, he is difficult to miss.

- This One's Me: Obtained from Chancellor Wellager in Drangleic Castle. After opening the doors to the castle you will see two stairs curving up to each other. Go up to where they meet and Wellager will be standing there. He is a ghost, and so may be difficult to see.

- Have Mercy: Obtained from Grave Warden Agdayne in the Undead Crypt. After the first bonfire continue on. Do not light a torch and do make sure to kill the undead which carries a torch, otherwise Agdayne will be hostile and the gesture is missed. You will know when you reach is room because he talks to you when you enter. When you hear his voice go up some stairs to your right to find him, do not attack him or the grave wardens.

- Hurrah: Obtained from Captain Drummond in the Memory of Vammar, found in the Forest of Fallen Giants at the Giant tree near where you first meet Pate. You require the Ashen Mist Heart, if you have this approach the Giant tree (two hollows will be hitting it) and activate it. Drummond will be in a small room at the beginning of the memory.
