    It's really easy.
    You need a bomb like Samum and a sign equipped. Look for some easy enemies and then counter an attack, start your own quick attack, throw a bomb and cast a sign.

    So you only have to press cn_LT, cn_X, cn_RB, cn_RT in under 4 seconds when someone is attacking you. The order doesn't matter but it should be the easiest way.

    EDIT: You will be able to do it in tutorial when fighting Vesemir. (thanks Flezza and DJ Rjester)

    I tried my best to write in English.

    Es ist ganz einfach.
    Du musst eine Bombe wie Samum und ein Zeichen ausrüsten und dann nach ein paar einfachen Gegnern Ausschau halten. Kontere dann einen Angriff und führe einen eigenen aus, wirf eine Bombe und zaubere ein Zeichen.

    Also musst du nur cn_LT, cn_X, cn_RB, cn_RT innerhalb von 4 Sekunden drücken, wenn dich jemand angreift, um zum Erfolg zu kommen. Die Reihenfolge ist dabei egal, aber es sollte so am einfachsten sein.

    EDIT: Es ist möglich es bereits im Tutorial im Kampf gegen Vesemir den Erfolg zu bekommen. (Danke Flezza und DJ Rjester)

    Darth Craigus Thanks for the guide - Worked fine (eventually!) Just thought I'd add, for anybody who is struggling to unlock this, I tried for almost half an hour and I was convinced that I was doing this right yet it was not unlocking. I cleared the cache (held down the power button on the console for 10 seconds) and loaded the game back up (it should put you back at the beginning of the combat tutorial) and after that it unlocked first time. May be worth trying for anybody who is having trouble unlocking this.

    VSlaven I just finished downloading the game and couldn’t get to unlock it either (some of the free dlc was downloading while I tried). Solution? Restarted my Xbox and popped right away on my 1st try.
