    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.

    GiantBRWorked just fine for me, and it’s surprisingly easy to do it.

    NeeNee755So after trying a few things from peoples’ comments, I realized why it can be buggy sometimes. When the enemies die, it needs to say “tool kill” at the top right of ur screen otherwise it won’t register. And an easy way to do that is to make sure that when the jars break, the oil gets on the enemies. So what I did was knock out the patrolling guard and then place one jar each in between the two sets of sleeping guards. Stand back and then shoot both jars with your fire arrows, separately. The oil will get on the guards which will make them unable to pat themselves down to get the fire off. You will get the “tool kill” for all 4 of them. Then go ahead and take the last jar and place it next to the knocked out guard and shoot the jar. This method shouldn’t glitch out nearly as much as the other ones.

    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

    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.
