    Notorious KiwiAs per CraziestSocks suggestion I went to Cyrene barracks and did it on an archer there. Also note that I accidentally stabbed the guy in the face first and finished him off with the torch and the achievement still popped.

    Beanpotterlol, accidently stabbed him in the face is the most Aussie thing I've heard in a while.

    LittleBlueTrollThanks! its RB to hit with the torch by the way, I kept throwing mine at first shock
    Also, avoid someone with a shield unless you can get up behind them, the poison works quite fast and if they die to the poison rather than the torch, it wont unlock. Its easier to club someone without them defending

    For some reason I could not get the achievement so I used that vid :

    I don't think a guide is necessary for it but as I said it wasn't working for me so try this solution from PowerPyx; all credits go to him

    The best time for this is during the main story missions towards the end of the game.
    I took a poisoned sword and bow just to sure it up.
    There's a main mission that takes you to Cyrene. There are four guards at the top of the Akropolis all level 35/36. Sneak up on one, hit them with your bow (preferably) and hold cn_right to bring out your torch and hit him within 30seconds.

    I did this three times before the achievement app realised I'd done it, it actually unlocked during the scene after you confirm your main story kill, during the cutscene.

    If you elect to use you blade instead, only use RB as RS will take their life down so far that the poison may kill them before you get your torch out.

    You can also do it the way my friend did it.
    Kill a guard on the way up to the Akropolis, put him somewhere close to a hide spot out in the open and poison the body. DO NOT get your torch out too early. Wait for a guard to come over and inspect the body, as he does and gets poisoned, leap out with your torch abd smack him on his head, yelling, "Bad Mr Kitty".

    Marine1TenI unlocked this at Bemulos Tower in Marmarica on a lvl 37 Roman soldier. Used "your friends method". Poisoned several bodies using the Flesh Decay ability. Eventually a single soldier investigated and the achievement unlocked a few seconds after I defeated him. Remember to use RB for the torch swing. I was lvl 39 with one point in Seer ability. Also hit him with a poison shield x1.
