    This achievement is linked to the mission "In a Strange Land" that you should receive after killing six members of The Order of Ancients, Vicelin, Avgos, Sister Frideswid, Hunta, Leofgifu and Kjotve (the rightmost horizontal branch). Several of which are linked to the completion of the Lunden Arc, and unlocking the following achievement

    Once you have the mission, you'll be tasked with killing another member of The Order of Ancients by travelling to a new location. Once you set sail, you will arrive in Vinland, and unlock the achievement immediately after the first conversation.

    It's worth noting this achievement didn't unlock for me when it should have. Luckily, I knew this achievement should have unlocked and reloaded an auto save just before leaving England. I suggest you make a save before leaving to travel to Vinland, just in case the achievement doesn't unlock the first time around for you.

    DevorianDevilThis should be marked as buggy, didn't realize i did not receive the achievement. Luckily i had a save before gong there, unlocked after the first conversation.

    Apostle92627Got the achievement as soon as the conversation ended, thanks for mentioning it. I had wondered what was going on.

    Centurion83As of 12/7/2020 can confirm this is still buggy, if it does not unlock when expected, reload a save (if you have one close to this quest) and it should unlock correctly. For those far beyond the quest with no save - remains to be seen if Ubisoft will be issuing a patch to retroactively unlock achievements.

    Bully of SmegStill no fix with patch 1.1.2 on 16/02/2021 - I can't see Ubi "fixing" this as it's not even been acknowledged as an issue by them yet so I think it's going to have to be a run through on easy to get to Vinland to try and unlock.
