This one is pretty straight forward. Ability Points are what you use when you create a spirit link and press cn_B by it to upgrade your skills. You'll still get the achievement even if you accidentally hit cn_B by a spirit link so long as you don't actually spend an Ability Point on an upgrade.

Though straight-forward, this can be challenging because the latter areas of the game have pretty tough enemies, and without the upgrades to your attack abilities they are sponges, soaking up quite a bit of damage. Not to mention making spirit links is more expensive and doesn't restore your HP when you make them.

The key is to explore the map as much as possible to get all of the Health and Spirit Energy orbs. It will help immensely to have more health and spirit energy toward the end of the game. Also, be judicious with when/where you use your spirit links later on. If you have plenty of energy, use one so you don't lose tons of progress if you die. If you're running low, you're going to need to try to stretch that energy between saves as much as possible.

The achievement unlocks during the final cut scene.

Update: the bug has been patched! If it didn't unlock for you and you still have a No Abilities save before the end, you can finish the game on that save again and unlock it as the patch is retroactive for all existing saves as well as new ones. Cheers!
