This achievement is related to 2 separate quests and requires you to slay 2 dragons, the Sky Dragon and the master below

the dragons must be killed, persuading them to leave will void the achievement

I recommend waiting until you are Level 16 before tackling the Adra Dragon. It can be done before then but by then you should understand the games mechanics and how to maximise your characters abilities.

The sky dragon is extremely easy to kill as it is related to a main quest The nest above the Cloud, you should kill this dragon from around level 8-10.T he quest can be obtained by either talking to the God Hylea during the Council of Stars main quest or by talking with Casfath in oldsong.

Either way the dragon is quite easy to defeat the Adra dragon on the other hand is one of the most difficult enemies in the game, so i will devote most time on how to slay this beast.

the Master Below
the Adra dragon is the Master below and you reach it by fighting your way down to level 15 of the the Endless paths it is incredibly important and makes this battle so much easier if when during dialogue with the dragon you agree to help him. This allows you attack the dragon at your convenience and position all your party.

preparation
each party member should have at least 5 major endurance potions, tanks should have 10, craft 10-15 paralysis scrolls, craft 10 maelstrom scrolls, equip Beast killer upgrade enchantment on all primary weapons, iverras Divine Helmet on a tank.

Party
I strongly recommend that you you visit a merchant and retrain your Chanter so he can summon a Drake and focus on support chants, and retrain your Tank to maximise passive abilites and bolster defences and priest for healing and buffs. The beast slayer ability is really helpful as Dragons are classed as Beasts this increases damage by 25%.

Recommended
Tank (Eder), Kana (Chanter), Durance (Priest), Grieving Mother (Cipher), final member optional Either another tank or Ranger.

make sure your 3 magical characters have the ability to cast at least level 4 scrolls, preferably level 5 . Equip each Caster with 5 paralysis scrolls and 5 scrolls of Maelstrom.

Strategy
turn Fast mode off, make sure the battle is in either normal or slow mode by pressing cn_left.

Position your party so they encircle the dragon, keep ranged characters out of the tails reach, I had 2 tanks, one I sent to the front and the best I sent to the rear, (keep your chanter well away).

make A Save

Initiate the battle when your party is positioned. To make this battle really simple have your best casters use scroll of paralysis, alternate between the 2 every 5 seconds, have the third cast scoll of maelstrom every 10, make sure you give each party member commands dont rely on Ai, summon your chanters drake, also use any Idles you have collected to summon other help.

The dragon should be focused on your tank giving your 3 casters who should be set back and set apart from each other free reign to use there scrolls, the scroll of maelstrom will inflict massive damage, also utilse any spells or buffs. The key here is slowing the battle down and issuing orders directly, take note of endurance levels and use a potion when you see fit.
