To get this you must speak with Darkdiver Grandahl at each of the three following locations in any order, at the last he will offer for you to join the Pilgrims of Dark.

1. Shaded Ruins. After the giant basilisk you will be going towards two ruined buildings (in front of the pass to the boss room), rather than go towards the boss, go to the grassy area just past the buildings, where there will be some planks on the ground. Step on them and you will fall into a room where Grandahl will be sitting. Talk to him to join the covenant.

2. Black Gulch. Go to where the two giant worms are, and drop down to a ledge, there will be a large door. Open this and Grandahl will be inside. You will need the Forgotten Key to open this. Drop down again, below the current ledge, then go into the cave. Inside are two giants, kill them to get the forgotten key. Go back, open the door then talk to him to join the covenant.

3. Drangleic Castle. From the King's Gate bonfire, go into the room with the statues that come to life and the doors. Activate the door in the far left corner by killing the statues next to it. Be warned: a ruin sentinel may be inside. Enter this room and walk to the middle of it, you will drop down a hole, sometimes the ruin sentinel will follow you. You will now be in a small cave with a darkdweller, there will be two conjoining caves, one has a bonfire and the other Grandahl. Talk to him to join the covenant.

Note: you do not need to join for the achievement to pop, you must simply reach the decision window (join: yes/no).
