    This solution is brought to you thanks to the website Gamebanshee about Van Helsing.
    If you prefer a neat video over pictures, check at the end of this guide ( courtesy of Zasta 360GameTV)

    There is 4 wisps located in 4 different zones of the game.

    First one is in Croakwood, it's "named" the Nameless wisp ( for now...)

    Location : http://hpics.li/bc88606
    You have 3 choices to answer the riddle correctly :
    You can say "I didn't take your name" and then allow Katerina to name it Hearthfire; you can say "Begone, evil spirit" and then name it Hearthfire yourself; or you can say "Begone, evil spirit" and then name it Lifespark. Any other responses will cause the wisp to attack you.

    The second wisp is in Dreadworks

    Location : http://hpics.li/bc9415b
    Q : It begins but has no end... yet it ends all that begins


    The third wisp is in The Old Town

    Location : http://hpics.li/a03b640
    Q : What is the answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything?


    The last wisp is in The Pocket Realm

    Location : http://hpics.li/a6e9f39
    Q : I touch the earth, I touch the sky. If I touch you, you'll surely die!

    Signal24Code20Unlocked for me after answering 2/4 correctly. Gave the wrong answer on the first two, but correct on the last 2 and unlocked as soon as I answered the 4th wisp (2nd right answer).

    DrSchlepensteinThis unlocked for me after answering the 2nd Wisp. So it is definitely buggy. Just had a similar thing happen with the Explorer achievement. The ingame tracker says i'm 23/29, but it unlocked when I went into the "Lost Ink" mission (which is the 23rd place I visited).

    This achievement is bugged. I have tested the theories others have presented and once I got two correct answers, I ended the session in the menu and restarted the game.

    If you need to unlock this achievement and you have already got at least 2 correct, simply close out the game session and restart it. If you only answered one correctly, end the session 3 times and start it up again.

    (This does not work with the ink well achievement.)

    metallicafan459After getting the second wisp the next 2 times I loaded the game it went up by 25% and then popped :)

    SciKoI got curious and had to check if this was true. I mean this is more or less an autowin achievement for all who quit their games a certain way. So well I put up the tracker when giving up for the night. Now when I started up again it didn't count unless I quit the game via the home button (not in game menu). But sure as a priest the counter went up 25% each time I started. I had answered first and third correct and the second one wrong for the record. Good luck folks! toast

    eohjayYeah, this popped way early for me. I had 2/4 and reloaded my save for a regular playing session. I was surprised to see it pop and figured that I encountered a glitch. Glad to see others have mentioned it!

    Hey everyone, just a quick video for unlocking this achievement. For this achievement, all you need to do is find and answer the four wisps in the game. They're in Croakwood, Dreadworks, Old Town, and Pocket Realm. Just watch the video for the answers and where they are. Hope it helps!

    I just got this without even meeting all wisps. I think it may be cumulative over several playthroughs.
