    Once you have the Storm Hollow go to the Catacombs and use it to hover across the previously inaccessible lava pool (Its the area with the wind and grapple spots). Here you will find the Unfocused Enoch enhancement. Equipping this automatically fills the havoc meter. At default it will take 33 minutes but with it fully maxed out it will take just under 6 minutes to fill up.

    The Obscurus enhancement (Located in Forgotten Lake near the red glowing skeleton with the club) also generates more havoc when attached. However you need to physically use the weapon to generate it, while Enoch generates over time as long as its attached to a weapon. Put Obscurus on your whip and level it up to increase your havoc meter even faster.

    I found a midgame setup to help demostrate a good location to grind in the video below

    Sorry, this Game Clip has been removed


    The South End has unlimited enemy spawns, which you can use to help fill up your meter faster. Once you get Havoc filled, teleport to the West End and you will find a large cluster of weak enemies.

    While the South End is helpful for early grinding, I have since discovered that you can skip this step altogether once you have Obscurus and Enoch fully maxed (also I had arcane at level 20) Simply teleport to West End and proceed from this step like you would normally as seen in the video.

    One critical tip to follow is to cancel your havoc form before the meter depletes. This can save over 50% of your meter with each grouping of enemies. The maxed enhancements fill up the meter so quickly you can have the meter filled in less than a minute as long as you only use up what you need.

    The last thing to note is you need to die in order to get the enemies to respawn. This will be made extremely easy once the incoming patch adds the kill Fury option in the menu. But until that patch goes live on consoles, use the nearby cliff to drain your health and then find any surviving enemy to finish you off.

    With this setup I got the achievement unlocked in about 45 mins

    Disclaimers up front: this is not my video, and I have not yet obtained the achievement but I have tested the technique shown and confirm that the glitch works.

    As shown in the video - travel to "The Hulking Carcass" in the Bonelands. Stick to the right-hand side and draw the guy in the chair over with Salvation but do not agro any other mobs. Once chair guy is dead, switch to the left side and dodge backwards and forwards past the flag. Each time you dodge past, the game will spawn in two new mobs. Do this for as long as you want and then trigger havoc form. Rinse and repeat until done.

    Hi all, since the previous method of infinitely spawning enemies has been patched, and grinding elsewhere would take forever, I decided to do some digging around for an alternative method. I played my first playthrough on Story, planning to do my Apocalyptic run on NG+, so I barely used Havoc form, and was at 3% when I finished the main story.

    So, I found a video buried on YouTube, (under 400 views, I really did dig) showing an infinite enemy spawn, so full credit goes to the video creator Hugh Honey:



    The video doesn't make it super clear, so let me lay out how to do this. Fast travel to Haven: South End and enter the church. Inside the church, break all the benches (trust me it's easier), then you want to go out of the hole in the left/east wall. There's a Suffering on the rock wall to the south east, a large creature with 4 arms, you want to get in range so that they scream, but not leap off the wall. The scream will spawn 3 smaller enemies. Head back inside the church and do laps of the pillars near the opening in the wall. Now every few seconds, probably about 15 or so, 3 more enemies will spawn and run in.

    I used havoc form when about 150-200 enemies were there, but I don't know at what point the game will crash. I was on Series X, but Xbox One users might want to consider using Havoc form when the framerate starts to dip.

    BrasshandeThe best method on here, even if the video misses out possibly the most important details of getting this to work, but your description in the guide was spot on so nice work matetoast
