    The achievement is unlocked on the 100th successful parry. You must have a shield equipped. A parry is when your cn_LT block is timed to coincide with the enemy's attack. Enemies have animations preceding their attacks. So, it's a matter of learning their 'tells' and blocking at the same time as the attack. If your cn_LT timing is not precise, you merely block. When it is precise, you'll get audio and visual feedback signifying a successful parry. If you are a melee fighter, you will parry often and you will unlock the achievement through normal play.

    If you are a ranged or mid-ranged fighter--staff, scepter, bow, chakrams, etc.--you are normally out of parrying range during normal gameplay. The Boggarts are good enemies to grind this achievement out. They have two attacks--a jumping attack and a side by side attack. Both attacks can be parried. The animation that precedes either type of attack is very distinctive and clearly telegraphs the strike. It is easiest against one opponent but you'll reach the 100 count faster with two or more. A successful parry knocks back all enemies in your vicinity so you do not assume unacceptable risk fighting more than one opponent.

    The very short video below shows the technique and the achievement unlocking on the 100th parry. Note the sound and visual embellishment that tell you that you have successfully parried rather than just blocked.

    Note: If you are using an Elite controller or other controller with a stop that shortens the cn_LT pull, this may impede your blocking and parrying abilities. Make sure the stop is not used and that the cn_LT has the full range of motion.

    Just as an enemy attack is going to land, press cn_LT to block, though you must have a shield equipped. If you parry successfully, time will slow down slightly and the enemy will fall back a little. Do this 100 times and the achievement will unlock. If you parry throughout the game, this won't take long. You do don't think about it or don't use a shield, equip one and go back to the first area and parry everything to unlock quicker.
