You earn this achievement - towards the end of the The Rising Tide quest which is a main quest in The White March Part 2. Location - Abbey of the Fallen MOON.

There are 2 methods for accessing the Reliquary and getting this achievement. I will call them the Infiltration of the Abbey and Attack of the Abbey. Infiltration is quicker but there are many more steps. Attacking directly is the simplest method but due to all the battles is slower. Scroll down for Attacking the Abbey method.

Infiltration
When you first arrive at the abbey, head east, wait for guards to move and use a grappling hook (dex 18 required). You will be in Halls of Silence. Walk in to an NPC and choose the dialogue option - LEAVE. You will be kicked out to Halls of Presence
. From here, be stealthy, if you do talk to any NPC's convince them your are the Tidebringer. .Make your way through Halls of Presence and head up the stairs marked Reliquary on the map.

Here you will find Kaoto. [.Now talk toAbbott Kaoto, he will assume you are the Tidebringer, keep up the pretence, during dialogue DO NOT MENTION EYELESS AND RELIQUARY OR HE WILL ATTACK YOU. Instead, agree to perform the recitation ritual.

To perform the ritual you need to collect 3 clues in order to answer a riddle.

Clue 1 - From Kaoto head back into the door leading to halls of presence, use Ondra's corridors. You should now be outside, look for a large curved stone wall, this will have a relief/mural. Interact with the wall and Watch the relief to get the first clue.
Clue 2 Enter Halls of Presence; head to Halls of the Fallen Moon. Talk to BAESCA (don't attack him)for clue 2.
Clue 3 Head to the library, find the book The Giftbearer's pilgrimage read for clue 3.
With all clues collected head back to Kaoto and begin the ritual.

The answer to his first question is:
*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

The answer to his second question is:
*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

The answer to his third question is:
*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***


Kaoto will be satisfied, give you the keys, teach you the Sign of the tide and give new instructions. He will also explain there are 2 factions low tide monks who will attack you and hide tide monks of which he is one, who wont. Go to The Halls of Silence and seek out Ondra's Witness (a device used to sprinkle holy water).

Inside Halls of Silence you will meet Farentis in a small cell to the left of the area, who will give more info. From His cell leave through the exit behind him, follow the corridor to the end and You will then reach a panel puzzle.

MAKE A SAVE. You'll need to give the answers "city in flames," "tidal wave," "barren shore," and then "flourishing city." Answer in the right order, and after performing the Sign of the Tide, a water bridge will form, allowing you to make your way to ACCESS Ondra's Witness.

Here you need to make a choice you can either choose to flood the area and kill the Low tide monks or open the gates and allow them to escape. Whatever your choice you will now be able to collect Ondra's Witness.

Return to Kaoto with Ondra's witness. After the battle . Then with Ondra's Witness in hand, you'll just need to pass through the Veil of Tears and head for the reliquary.

the achievement will unlock

Method 2 - Attack the Abbey
Enter the abbey, kill anyone who gets in your path, visit the mural (outside on stone wall), this will show the 4 stages of the abbey. then go to the Hall of the Tidal Wave, you will battle loot his corpse, interact with his soul to learn Sign of the Tide.

Make your way through the Halls of SIlence meet Farentis, he will explain the situation and ask you to free the monks of the low tide. He will give you a key unlocking the gate behind him. Head to the Panel Puzzle. You'll need to give the answers "city in flames," "tidal wave," "barren shore," and then "flourishing city." After selecting those answers in the right order, and after performing the Sign of the Tide, a water bridge will form, allowing you to make your way to Ondra's Witness.

Make a choice whether to free or kill the monks of the low tide. With Ondra's gift head to the Reliquary, as you killed Kaoto earlier it will be unguarded.

Head through the Reliquary to eacn the achievement.
