This achievement can be obtained on your first playthrough of the DLC Lord of the Hunt (which is included in this bundle).

Please note there may be some minor spoilers.

In the final warchief mission you will be tasked with entering a Ghûl infested cave to draw out the warchief. When you have him on the run he retreats out of the cave and onto the clifftop.

Once you start battle here he will summon Ghûls to fight along side him. Brand as many as possible with the flash brand (cn_X + cn_Y when you have hit streak) to turn them against him and fight for you.

It is scripted in this battle for 3 Caragaths and a Wretched Graug to appear. Brand the Caragaths and Graug with cn_LT + cn_A and the achievement should unlock.

If it does not, then it means the Spitter Ghûls you had branded have died. Jump off your mount and continue to flash brand groups of Ghûls and the achievement should unlock.

Note: that you must complete this BEFORE the warchief dies; as this will end the battle and you will lose all your branded creatures.

this is a Lord of the Hunt DLC achievement

As stated by Mattricus and in the walkthrough (and most everywhere else), it is easiest to get this in the final war chief mission. All 3 creatures will automatically appear during the 2nd half where Zagflak will have fled the cave and you will fight him outside.

Before starting the fight, there is at least one ghul mound nearby Zagflak. Brand them by charging your combo meter and pressing cn_X+cn_Y. More ghuls will spawn during the Zagflak fight, and you want to concentrate on mass branding as many as you can. Don't waste time fighting Zagflak. He is only vulnerable to beast attacks. To speed things up a little, you can try stunning him with cn_B or vault stunning him with cn_A.

when Zagflak is at 1/2 health, caragaths will appear. Aim at them with cn_LT and push cn_A to insta brand and mount them (even if you are already riding one). You want all 3 under your control. Once you have mounted the 3rd one, STAY ON IT. This is the most important bit of advice no one gives. Zagflak is very weak against mounted sword attacks.

When Zagflak is at 1/4 health (2-3 hits by sword while mounted), the graug will appear. Aim at it with cn_LT and push cn_A. You should get the achievement.

if you didn't get it and you do have all 3 creature types under your control (you will see blue symbols for each on the left-center of the screen), you have no spitter ghuls branded. hop off the ghul and brand more of them. (but this is unlikely since the normal ghuls will harass Zagflak and the spitters will stand away from him. )

if at any time you lose all caragaths or (somehow) the graug, abandon the mission and try it again.
