    UPDATE April 2018. I just can't get back to updating this--haven't played Warframe in a while and there have been so many huge changes. If someone still playing Warframe would like to update this, please ask me and perhaps you can make your own solution using the information here that is still accurate. Needed updates include: Amounts of focus gained per day, Eidelon lenses, focus tree changes and unlocking, and a few others.

    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    To get the achievement, you must unlock the start of each node in one Focus skill Tree

    There is also a Mastery Rank requirement for some of the nodes in the Focus Trees. Mastery Rank 6 is the lowest that will clear 3 Focus Trees: Naramon, Unairu, and Zenurik, otherwise you need MR 8 or 12!

    For those wondering, here is a picture that shows what the Mastery Rank locked node looks like(Thanks to Tukaitaua):

    Focus Skill Trees are basically skill/ability/power trees that unlock special abilities you can activate similar to your Warframe abilities.

    The Focus area of Warframe is unlocked by completing the Second Dream quest.
    In order to unlock the Second Dream quest, you have to complete the prerequisites:
    Mastery Rank 3, the Natah Quest, and the Stolen Dreams quest.
    The Natah quest can be started by scanning one of the blue sentients in one of the Underwater tileset missions on Uranus.

    Focus is a type of XP gained in Warframe missions, that is only gained on Rank 30 Warframes or Weapons. The Focus XP can then be put towards different upgrades in the Focus Tree you've chosen. You can gain multiple types of Focus at once, but each type of Focus can only be put into the Focus Tree it matches.

    Focus is gained by equipping a Focus Lens or Greater Focus Lens on a Warframe or weapon. The Lenses can be equipped when the Warframe or weapon(WoW) are at rank 30. If you forma the WoW, the Lens will not be active until you reach rank 30 again!
    You can only equip 1 Lens or Greater Lens on any single WoW at one time. Replacing an equipped Lens will destroy it!
    You can equip a Lens on your Warframe or weapons all at the same time though for maximum Focus gain.
    To equip a Lens, got to your Warframe's current Mods loadout screen, then click in on the right stick.

    A regular Lens gains Focus at the rate of 1.25% of the regular XP you gained on the WWoC.
    A Greater Lens gains Focus at the rate of 1.75%!

    For some time now regular Lenses have been available as sortie mission rewards, and Greater Lens blueprints have been available in the market for 200k? credits, which require 4 regular lenses to build a Greater Lens. However, the Greater Lens itself costs only 40 plat making it generally worth it to just buy a Greater Lens with plat if you can afford it.

    The Focus Trees can be confusing at first; make sure to take some time to research which tree you really want for it's abilities.

    The Focus required to completely unlock the first level of each node for each tree according to the warframe wikia: http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Focus
    is right here:
    Note: Each tree costs 50,000 Focus to unlock if it is not your starting Focus choice
    Naramon Tree requires 485,000 Focus All nodes unlocked by MR 6!
    Unairu Tree requires 485,000 Focus All nodes unlocked by MR 6!
    Madurai Tree requires 565,000 Focus All nodes unlocked by MR 12.
    Vazarin Tree requires 635,000 Focus All nodes unlocked by MR 8.
    Zenurik Tree requires 545,000 Focus All nodes unlocked by MR 6!

    The daily focus cap limit is 250k per day
    The Naramon and Unairu Trees are definitely the best choices at this time since they have 50k less focus required to complete the base level of each node!
    The Zenurik Tree is the best known choice at this point if you won't be increasing your Mastery Rank much!(Thanks BIGB EC!)

    (Vazarin has a useful ability called Mending Tides which allows you to pick up allies from a distance, and Zenurik has an even better ability called Energy Overflow which brings in energy at up to 4 per second)

    It's highly recommended to use a Greater Lens on a WARFRAME, not a weapon, unless you have extra platinum or lenses. I personally got over 1 million Focus with a Greater Lens on Ember/Ember Prime. The World on Fire ability collected a LOT of focus over time. Choose carefully where you put your lenses however, as some Warframe abilities don't even count for Focus. Such as Valkyr's Hysteria mode, unless they've updated it, didn't count for Focus at all.

    There are a few ways of tricking the game to get max focus, but they seem to get patched regularly. YouTube usually has video's of new ways of getting lots of focus easily!

    There is also a new thing in the game that gives you 6x Focus bonus gain; called Convergence, it'll spawn randomly in the mission and has the symbol of a poison/nuclear facility. If you pick it up, it lasts for 45 seconds, and will respawn in missions periodically. It only counts for the person who picks it up, but will multiply by 6x any focus gains you get in that period!

    Here is Hybrildchld's great method for getting Focus with his Rhino Prime:

    TillTheMorningnvm it unlocks just fine after unlocking all 10 nodes in one tree even though the tracker says there are 11

    Fuzzy Bear HugsI'm sure this tip is floating around all over, but, as of July 2018, one of the best places to farm focus is Hydron on Sedna. There are always groups running it and in a typical 10 wave mission you can collection between 15k-25k focus.

    Additionally, farming Eidolons at night is another good way to get focus. Keep in mind that these runs can take a while and aren't always successful based on the team composition. Killing or capturing an Eidolon will award you shards which you can turn in for 15k focus.

    Shadow 00 FoxHydron's still viable? :-) That's good! What's your setup for collecting that much focus on a 10 wave Hydron?

    Shadow's guide is excellent for obtaining focus, however DE has modified what is required to unlock all the abilities in the skill tree.

    In order to unlock the focus trees in general, the prerequisite is still the same: Complete the Second Dream quest. However, there will only be a maximum of two nodes available to unlock in the focus tree after that quest. If you try and select some of the non-passive nodes, you will notice the game prompts with a message "Seek out the Quills". In order to unlock these remaining nodes in the tree itself, you will need to complete the following quests:

    The War Within
    Saya's Vigil

    After completing both quests, go back to Cetus and find Konzu. He is the guy that hands out the main bounties for the Plains. He will be near the entrance to the Plains in the far back of the hub. If you face the entrance to the Plains from him, and follow the wall to the right, you will find a small path that leads to a door. Leave your warframe (cn_RB+cn_LB) and the door will open.

    Inside you will find Quills Onkko. Talk to him and you will get your first Amp and some exposition. Head back to your ship and return to your operator. All of the nodes will now be available to unlock.

    If you are looking for a simple, but rewarding way to grind focus, this solution is for you. Three main points will make this grind easier for you- Excalibur, max rank. As many energy restores as you can make, because energy leech is a pain. And a sortie with survival, hopefully eximus stronghold. Do not do this solo or you will spend all your time going through energy restores. Your goal is to save your energy for a focus amplifier, and then unleash exalted blade on enemies 60+. Per amplifier (45sec) i averaged between 6-8k focus. Per mission, about 25k for a 10 minute survival sortie mission. What you do between amplifiers is up to you, but during that 45 second stretch, find a long hallway, turn your camera to the door, and move left and right while swingong the exalted blade. Stand as far as you can from the door to avoid energy leech. Happy grinding, Tenno.

    This guide will be current as of March 2021. Shadow has a good guide. I will be working off you have picked your focus school. Now the 250k focus limit is partially correct. That is the starting point. You also get an additional 5k per mastery rank you are. This is a soft cap. You can go beyond this. There are 3 methods of gaining lots of focus. I will state early that it does require some advanced items to get the most out of this.

    1st method
    With the helminth system. You can always subsume regular Equinox. Putting her rest ability on whatever frame you want. You can also use Equinox. Using a 265% range Equinox(prime) with her rest and rage augment. With about 155% duration. You also want lots of enemy radar. The weapon you want is the skiajati. Upon doing a finisher attack you will gain 5 seconds of invisibility. You will lose that if you do a non-finisher attack or activate an ability Now for the other items that will make this easier. The affinity booster smeeta kavat with the charm and tek enhance mod, mod preparation, rank 5 arcane energize, and arcane trickery. Energize gives 60% to get 200 energy every time you pick up an energy orb. Trickery gives 15% for 30 seconds of invisibility. The map you want is adaro on steel path difficulty. You unlock the steel path by unlocking all the nodes. The strategy is fairly simple. In her night form Cast her rest ability and get stealth finishers. Try to maintain a 500% with it. You especially want to keep it going when you collect the convergence orb.

    2nd method
    Capturing eidolons grants brilliant and radiant eidolon shards. Which are worth 25k and 40k respectively. With both good gear and squad you can easily gain all the focus you will need. The focus you gain via this method doesn't count against your focus limit. You can gain as much focus in a day as you have shards. To capture an eidolon requires you to remove its shield with your amp. You will know it is still shielded if you see purple over its health bar. After getting rid of all its shield it will flash red. I highly recommend you do a 777 amp. Though it is up to you. Then use a different weapon to destroy the synovia. The 1st one has 4 the other 2 have 6. You repeat the process of taking down the shields and destroying the synovia until all of them are destroyed. It will get up one final time in which you can damage it anywhere. To capture the 1st eidolon requires 2 charged lures. The other 2 eidolons require 3 charged lures. To destroy the synovia and damage the eidolon in its final form. I say the best option right now is the necramech voidrig with its 4th ability guard mode. Which is an exalted weapon. When properly modded will make short work of them.

    3rd method
    You can use whatever frames and weapons you want. Though you will want ones that don't rely on their 4th ability. The mode you want is elite sanctuary onslaught. At the start of each round, a convergence orb is automatically applied to you. That can scale up to 16x. The more rounds you go.
