You'll get this for defeating the first boss of the game, on the northern coast of Aeos. It's story driven, so you can't miss it, but there are a few things to know about the boss fight:

- Hunt around for restorative items. The best way to get some is to continuously check the harvest point to the east of the Calnus (your ship). It will appear every time you enter your ship and then exit.

- Learn how to access those restorative items while in battle! Seems simple, but it's important to know (press Y to open the battle menu and scroll to the items icon. Hit A to enter your inventory and look for Blueberries or whatever you may need; descriptions for the items will appear if you leave the cursor on them).

- Armaros has a weak spot, but it's not so apparent at the beginning. You'll have to smash away at the rock / shell on the side of the creature until it breaks off (this may take a while; the part you want to be hitting glows slightly). The best way to do this is to stay in front of Armaros until it attacks (which is telegraphed). When you see it start to attack, run to its side and begin attacking. After it breaks, repeat this tactic and attack the glowing spot for massive damage.

- If you want to stay back and take things safe, use Reimi and shoot from a distance. Hop away when it gets close (B + the direction you want to go).

- When the boss goes into rush mode, run away from it for a while until it stops glowing.

Following these strategies, you shouldn't have too tough a time.

ADVANCED TIP: If you're really going for all of the game's achievements, you'll probably want to try to get the finishing blow with Faize. This will save time later (for a couple of different BTs), but do not waste a lot of time restarting, as it is by no means necessary.
