    There are six Place of Power in the first "Map": White Orchard. You need to draw power from the five that I marked in red. Every buff holds for 30min, so you need to visit them all in that timeframe. The yellow on is a duplicate but visited it too, you get an Ability Point from every Place of Power.

    Faustus PHDMy achievement didn't pop either. Those playing in the GOTY edition - I was able to meditate so that all bonuses were lost and then reaquire ONLY the five different powers. No duplicates. The achievement popped immediately after.

    NicoleRenee00Scratch that. I might be the dumbest person ever. I never realized that you need to hold down the button the entire time and it would give you a skill point. I’d hold the button long enough for Geralt to do the prompt and would then let go. Tried it again and it worked toast

    There are 5 Place of Power statues in White Orchard. You need to activate them all within 30 minutes. Each of these gives you a bonus ability point and a boost to a Sign. They also have enemies guarding all 5 locations. The video shows you the locations and me going to all 5 in order.

    This is a pretty simple achievement that can be obtained fairly early on in the game. In order to unlock, you need to have all five power bonuses active at the same time. To get the bonus, you must travel to a place of power and draw from it, each place of power gives a bonus to a specific sign.

    There are six of these places in the first main area of the game, White Orchard, covering all five signs with two places of power for the Quen Sign. If you want to find where each place of power is, it is outlined in this video. Hope this helps!
