This is story related and earned for defeating Herodotus. Herodotus is typically the 4th boss players will go after.

This boss is located the "bottom" area of the map "Land of Darkness" as the achievement describes. This area contains the strongest enemies (especially during your first playthrough) so it is usually stressful the first time you venture there. Take it slowly and eventually you'll find this boss room.

In terms of fighting Herodotus, here are some tips:

-Crowd control is a huge element of the fight. Each time you split the slime, an earth mage enemy appears (the ones who summon an earth spire through a magic spell). You will want to focus your attacks on eliminating the earth mages as they appear while also not continuously splitting the slime thus allowing a crowd to come after you. In other words, each time you create a smaller slime, continue working that set down before defeating the other ones at that size as well).

-Standing on the lowest level of the map helps so there isn't a slime that jumps up into you. Problem with this the spike traps along the floor. If possible (and I know this is luck based), select a hero with the PAD trait. This allow you to walk on spike traps without them activating.

-A Hero with a high enough strength value can actually split the slime and kill the mage in the same stroke. In my case, the Shinobi/Hokage class was able to split the slime and kill mage when the attack hit right. This isn't a guarantee, but having some method of defeating enemies quickly will help in the management of the fight.

-While spells are not required, anything that can help protect you hurt multiple enemies is a benefit. In particular, the sword wall or flame circle can help cover a blind spot while the crows can help attack multiple slimes all at the same time.

-For runes, consider a health restoration type rune (either siphon or balance). Each little slime you destroy counts as a kill as well as each earth mage so there are plenty of opportunities to restore your health if you stack them.
