    In the territory Ka-Khem Nome is a outpost called Dasos Hideout nearby a fast travel tower. In this camp are sleeping four enemies in a tent at nighttime.

    Switch to nighttime and go to this outpost. There is a fifth enemy in this camp, so kill this enemy first silently. To the left of the tent stand a small wooden tower with 3 oil jars.
    Put this oil jars in the middle of tent silently. On the right side of the tent you can light up your arrow. Shoot with this arrow to the oil jars and the four enemies are burn to death.

    Now kill yourself with fire and repeat this process until the achievment unlocks. Note: The skill "Pyromaniac" increase your fire damage by 50% so the enemies die more quickly. (not 100% sure)

    Note from the comments: You can also knockout the guards or use sleep darts on the enemies before you light up the oil jars.

    xXBlackTarXxThe second attempt, one enemy wasn't where he was the 1st time and 1 of the enemies gets up and goes on a short patrol leaving 3 in the tent. There was 6 enemies rather than 5.

    CurfsPerfect solution! Stubborn me, I was sure I could do it some other way than dying over and over, but this is BY FAR the fastest way. Managed to get 18 kills by myself in approx 3 hours, and the last 12 kills in 5 minutes by following this solution. Thnx!

    This is much MUCH easier to do at Kibotos Arsenal in Alexandria, There is a abundance of low level enemies and a stockpile of oil jars.

    Simply shoot the Oil Jars with a fire arrow when a enemy walks by and repeat until all of the romans are dead. When you have killed them all just leave the area and return the next day, all enemies should have respawned.

    Thiagosc777This was MUCH easier for me as well. Once I managed to aggro 8 soldiers and they followed me in a line. Just shot the jar and killed them all. I managed to get all 30 in about 4 or 5 tries.

    Elite MouseThis is the easiest way to do it, come back when you are high level and have a ton of arrows available and just use a bow with the on fire perk so you just shoot fire arrows, then run around and gather up the enemies and bring them all over to an oil jar, shoot the jar and run away, just keep running around grouping enemies near the jars and shoot the jars with fire arrows, doesnt matter if you light on fire and die just rush back into the fort and keep gathering enemies (everything respawns when you die which is perfect).

    Took me 10 minutes this way.

    I found a good spot to do this, in side quest (lvl 12) "Blue hooligans" (if you didnt completed it yet) The quest giver is located in Kanopos Nome.
    You might get a triple if you are lucky. Reload checkpoint each time till you get it
    Here my YouTube video

    BrasshandeTook a good few more goes than it should have so it looks like not every kill counts unfortunately, but if you stick with it it will get you there in the end

    neeker75Does not work. Enemies react too quickly. They run away from the fire mostly, and don't die. Have been trying for 15 minutes, and got one kill out of it.
