    This can only be done with the Defect.

    There are a few ways to generate Plasma Orbs and therefore multiple ways to get this achievement. I think the easiest way is to cast Meteor Strike three times, ideally with Holograms and likely with Snecko Oil (or against Snecko) so you get confused, reducing the costs and allowing you to have enough energy.

    A few notes:

    1) Casting Meteor Strike three times deals 72 damage. If the third cast kills the last enemy, you will not generate the last three orbs and therefore you will not get the achievement. Don't upgrade Meteor Strike since all it does is increase the damage.

    2) You ideally want 2 Holograms. If they are upgraded, they lose Exhaust.

    I got the achievement in a run where I was trying to get it, but sooner than I expected due to luck:
    I intended to record the battle when I got the achievement but I didn't have a Meteor Strike at this point. Since I wasn't recording, I had to use the Xbox record function which is why you don't see the achievement pop, but it did after the three orbs from the third Meteor Strike were generated.

    Evilshadow23Echo Form can make this much easier. In fact if you only have 3 orb slots the first cast will net you 6 orbs, 3 will be evoked, giving you a nice energy boost. Then simply use Hologram to recast for the last 3 plasma orbs.

    PS. I did it on the giant head in ACT 3. If you can put up the defense you got 100s of HP to trial and error on.

    WizZy PLIts even easier if you combine echo form with metamorphosis, it will give you 10 cards that cost 0 mana and meteor stroke is pretty common.

    snikefriendI did that with a meteor strike, echo form, hologram and the potion that gives you a card from your discard pile which costs 0.

    eohjayActually managed to pull off 13 orbs in one round, haha.

    Specifically going for it this run I snagged an early relic that channeled 1 plasma at the start of the fight. Grabbed holograms whenever I noticed them, and finally found a Meteor Strike in a shop. No Echo Form, but did grab a Snecko Potion.

    First turn against a boss I drew Meteor Strike and 1x Hologram. Figured I'd cast Snecko, it zero cost my Meteor Strike and drew the other 2x Holograms. Allowed me to cast Meteor Strike 4 times without killing the boss. Had oodled of energy leftover, ha!

    Thanks for the tips, guys.
