This achievement unlocks once Lucatiel of Mirrah gives you her armour and weapon. This achievement is missable if you talk to Lucatiel in Aldia's Keep before completing the conditions.

There are a total of four locations where you can talk to and summon Lucatiel. You must Exhaust Lucatiel's dialogue at three different locations, and she must assist you as a white phantom on corresponding area bosses three times.

She must survive the boss fights for it to count. Therefore, I suggest you clear the path between her and the boss before summoning her. Also, you can use the Redeye ring (purchased from Shalquoir in Majula) to take the heat off her during the boss fight. If she dies then you can either leave (homeward bone/Darksign) or die, then you can try again.

If you miss one of these locations then you are still all right. If you have missed more than one then you may be able to use a bonfire ascetic to redo the location, as long as you have not yet talked to Lucatiel in Aldia's Keep.

Remember that to summon phantoms you must be human, to become human use a human effigy. Her summon sign will also not appear if you have the Name-Engraved ring equipped or you have your summon sign down. Thanks to New Legend PL for this.

Locations and Bosses:

1. No Man's Wharf:

Lucatiel is found inside a building (not next to the bonfire as in the original version), to get there go from the bonfire. Go along the pier where the archer is, then up the stairs between two wooden buildings (beware of ambush). At the top of the stairs look a bit to your left in front of you and there will be some stairs leading up in a house. Go up these and Lucatiel should be standing there. Exhaust her dialogue.

She will then be a summon for the Flexile Sentry, you will find her just before the stairs on the pier to the ship.

2. Lost Bastille/Sinner's Rise:

Lucatiel will be in a tower near the Tower Apart bonfire in the Lost bastille. That is the bonfire you reach by defeating the Pursuer in the Forest of Fallen Giants, and then getting carried by the eagle. Once you are there, exit the door at the bonfire and she is in the tower across the path in front of you, exhaust her dialogue.

You will need to progress through the Lost Bastille and reach Sinner's Rise (the next area) to summon her. Her summon sign can be found at the bottom of the elevator. I strongly suggest you kill the enemies before summoning her as there is a flexile sentry and many high damaging enemies.

3. Harvest Valley/Iron Keep:

Lucatiel's location for this has changed since the original version. She can now be found in Harvest Valley (rather than Earthen Peak). From the Mines bonfire go through towards Earthen Peak. You will come to a bridge with a green hammer guy. After the bridge go right and round into a large room with poison pots. Go through the door at the far end of this room and take a right. Follow this path a short distance until a door on your right. Go into that room and Lucatiel will be standing against the wall, exhaust her dialogue.

The boss fight for her is two areas along in the Iron Keep, where she helps you fight Smelter Demon. Her summon sign will be just after the bridge you have to lower, in front of the fog gate.

4. Black Gulch:

Lucatiel is in a hidden cave. From the first bonfire go out to the left and follow the path. There should be two statues then a third on your right. The group after this third is where you want to stop. Just before this group slowly go forward to the edge and you should be able to just make out a ledge below you (turn your brightness up if you can't see it) if you can see it then edge forward until you fall and you will land on the ledge. Go up through this cave and Lucatiel will be standing against the wall, exhaust her dialogue.

You can then summon her for the Rotten, she is in the room with the second bonfire. This bonfire is found in a cave by following the edge all the way along. You need a Fragrant Branch of Yore to unpetrify a hollow which blocks your way. A fragrant Branch can be found on a body where you dropped down before the fog gate leading into Black Gulch. For more locations of branches see the 'Change of Clothes' guide.

Inherit the Items:

Once you have completed three of the four above locations you must meet her in a small wooden building in Aldia's keep, before going up the stairs into the Keep. There will be a bonfire in this building, and she will be sitting against the wall. Talk to her until she gives you her equipment. Then the achievement should pop.

If you are interested, look at her face carefully at her final location in Aldia's Keep and you may see a change.
