    This achievement is actually pretty simple, it just involves a lot of running around. To get this achievement you need to hunt down and kill all Knights of the Flaming Rose otherwise labeled as "Fallen Knights" and loot the main chest in each camp. People it seems have had the most luck getting this by starting a "New Game" and selecting expansion only, and then going to kill and loot the camps.

    There are a total of 8 bandit camps THAT ARE CONFIRMED to be needed to get the achievement.

    (If you cleared all the camps go back to each one as you might have missed a guy running around, the easiest place to miss a guy is LOCATION #2 as There are a few on the outskirts of the camp.)

    (Clear the guys as close as you can to the center of the camp. *credit to Joueur*)

    Below are the locations of the camps.

    #1. (Bandit Camp) Straight north of the "Upper Mill".

    minisim24This one is glitched for me. I have just traveled to each bandit camp to confirm they are empty. There was one camp that still had a wolf hide in the red chest, but apart from that I had looted everything the first time around. Witcher Senses would also show a chest in red, then not allow me to loot it (as if it were empty) when I got close. Bit frustrated at this but seeing as other HoS achievements have glitched for me I’ll have to replay it at some point anyway.

    lee1987xzThis quest has been broken for years. They know about it and dont care. They are happy to keep taking peoples hard earned money though.

    CarbonitexGuide works perfectly. Just killed every Fallen Knight and looted everything from the marked chest.

    UPDATE: 11th Jan 2016

    The 1.12 patch should fix the issues with this achievement not unlocking for some gamers.

    Patch 1.12 Changelog

    Hearts of Stone

    Fixes issue whereby achievement titled Wild Rose Dethorned could not be completed.


    This solution has a short video of the achievement unlocking at the last bandit camp and video's of potentially missable enemies. The achievement glitched for me on my main game save and I tried on a new HoS and that glitched. I took inspiration from a comment by @Joueur455523401 on @Foxfire49 solution and tried again with success. The video's are from another play through on an secondary account, so I am confident this will work consistently as I have unlocked it twice using this method.


    It took an about an 1 hour 5 minutes in total (one uninterrupted play through) to unlock White Rose Dethroned achievement using a new HoS save. At the start screen use an HoS save and choose "Just the story". Allocate point to signs and abilities as you prefer.

    Got to the Notice boards at the Seven Cats and Brunwich so the markers are visible on the map. No need to carry out any missions or objectives, just clear the camps. Begin clearing out the first #1 to #8 camps identified by @Foxfire49 in the previous solution. The order doesn't seem to matter, I did it differently on each play through.

    At each camp I tried to pull all the enemies close the red highlighted chest, then kill them, Thanks to @Joueur455523401. Scout around the perimeter to make sure you have them all. At one camp with distillation equipment there is an enemy near some bee hives on the perimeter wearing a silver mask make sure you pull him.


    Also by the Kuetz castle there is an enemy on his own in a side building area by some cages, you can't pull him close to the chest so just kill him. I kill the enemy around the 5 minute mark in the video below.


    Once the you have killed all the enemies at a camp ignore the red chest and looting the bodies, Thanks @Sephiroth oni. I found that looting everything at each camp left me overburdened and I had to drop items. Its possible that dropping items triggers the glitch. Go to another camp. When you reach the final camp and kill the final enemy the achievement will unlock. In the video you can see the camps I visited and markers are still white showing they are unlooted.

    I died at one camp and reloaded, I glitched Geralt into FP view, then glitched him into mid air and still the achievement unlocked.

    For completeness I have the full 1 hour 6 minute video unedited of the playthrough.


    Many thanks to @Foxfire49 @Sephiroth oni @Joueur455523401

    SaltFatHeatThis is the method that worked for me, this being my third attempt. I also did the camps in a random order, opting to do the top row of ones first and work my way down. I was on camp # 7 and didn't even finish killing them all before it unlocked. Never looted anything either. Thanks very much!

    ScorchPSOFirst attempt failed.

    Restarted Expansion Only, Just for Story and then I followed The Reverend JC's 4th Attempt guide. I did 1, 2, 3, 5, 4, 8, 7 and then ended on 6 not looting a single thing.

    I think he is on to something about the nekkar camp, im pretty sure on my first playthrough I only killed 5 dudes in that camp and could not find a 6th, This time I found the 6th near nekkars, got him back to the camp and killed him.

    Also, I can confirm enemies died from bleeding effects and some even got shot and killed by their friends arrows so it seems you dont have to be the one giving a finishing blow.

    I didnt fast travel or die when going for this but I did make 1 or 2 saves mid-session. Seeing the achievement pop was satisfying as hell! Popped a few seconds after I killed the last guy in Camp 6.

    WessmonsterThis is still bugged to shit, the Bandit Camp at Kilkerinn Ruins simply won't clear for me.
