    Once you have completed everything else, start a new game and do this on the first forms of the Hunter, Alchemist and Concubine. I suggest you do them in order so you know where you stand. This is the order I did them in:


    Elika Combo:
    Y X X
    Y Y X
    Y X Y X
    Y Y Y
    Y X Y Y
    Y B
    Y Y B
    Y X B
    Y X Y B
    Y A
    Y Y A
    Y X A
    Y X Y A


    Gaunlet Combo:
    B X
    B Y Y X
    B Y X X
    B Y X Y X
    B Y Y Y
    B Y X Y Y
    B B
    B Y B
    B Y Y B
    B Y X B
    B Y X Y B
    B A
    B Y A
    B Y Y A
    B Y X A
    B Y X Y A


    Acrobatic Combo:
    A X X X
    A Y Y X
    A Y X X
    A Y X Y X
    A Y Y Y
    A Y X Y Y
    A B
    A Y B
    A Y Y B
    A Y X B
    A Y X Y B


    Throw Combo:
    A B A X
    A B A Y X
    A B A Y Y
    A B A B
    A B A Y B


    Aerial Combo:
    B A X
    B A Y X
    B A Y Y
    B A B
    B A Y B


    I performed those combos the first time you battle the Concubine, Alchemist, and Hunter (in that order). I then performed the Normal combos on an Ahriman soldier. Use them on the soldier in the following video...


    Normal combo:
    X X X X
    Y
    X Y
    X X Y
    X X X Y
    B
    X B
    X X B
    X X X B
    A
    X A
    X X A
    X X X A

    Hope this helps!

    Drelzari've done this list so many times... and i still don't have this achievement... i even redid combos that i killed the moster in the middle of... Can anyone explain to me why this happens?

    Mobius EvalonI happened to have an old-ass save right before you meet this boss and decided to give it a go with him and try to avoid making an entirely new game. Excellent suggestion, my friend. Thumbs up.

    It's actually really easy to get these combos in on the final boss. Just make sure you let him heal up -- I never hit him when he was below 1/3 health, which takes a little longer but is better than starting all over again. He does not need to be at any specific percentage of health, he will heal at random intervals regardless of how much he has.

    A few pointers regarding these combos with this boss in particular:

    First and foremost, always lead out with a counter (hit and hold RT as an attack is coming in and not sooner). This boss has the most pronounced attack broadcast (indicated by a huge sweeping arm movement and a grunt) and you can counter his attacks to lead every single combo, like I did. I was even able to counter his attacks with corruption covering my screen because it's impossible to miss his intent to attack.

    This boss is adept at countering sword attacks (X button). Be prepared to try any combos with a sword attack not preceded by a lift (B button) several times.

    All combos that start with A button are position swaps, meaning the Prince will hop over the guy's head and reverse the direction of the fight. This means that for all the combos that lead with A you want the enemy as close to the edge as possible, while the remainder you want to be close to the edge to avoid an arena border quicktime event.

    I don't know if getting to the edge of the arena and triggering the X button mashing still counts the combo or not. I did not count them when it happened.

    If you can keep track of it, I highly recommend doing these out of order and not going straight down the list. Because A leading combos reverse the fight direction, you can pull those out when the boss is too close to the edge to do any other combos. In addition, when he is hiding in his corruption shield you can only lead out with Elika (Y button) combos, and there are other situations where you can only lead out with gauntlet or sword attacks. Mix and match as the situation dictates -- the appropriate item will glow when you need to use it to damage him.

    otaku1412Can confirm this guide works. Haven't confirmed whether or not if Ahriman hitting a wall will negate the combo, but you can perform all combos if you make sure there's plenty of room to perform them, especially the longer combos.
