    If you're playing as an Assassin, use any/all of the Strike spells (Swift Strike, Burning Strike, Freezing Strike, Stone Strike).

    These spells change all gems of one color to purple. (yellow, red, blue, green in the order listed above). Then simply wait for a row/column to be made up of all purple and whatever other color gems and cast the appropriate spell. Cheevo done.

    (side note: playing with all four of these spells and Stealth is a wicked Assasin build)

    Codster2005: I may want to add that playing against the more difficult enemies that have the massive game boards will make this easier. Getting 8 in a row with a 12x12 board is easier than 8x8.

    I used swift strike with the assassin, though any of the strikes would work perfectly.

    I used two controllers and did a local multiplayer match and lines up the bottom row with 2 purple, 2 yellow(or whichever strike you choose). Once I got all my pieces in line I just used my ability.

    Seemed easier with the second controller since you have more control of what gems are being moved then facing the computer.

    This is a solution for the Barbarian class, but it should work for all classes that can create gems... just replace enrage and needed gems with the skill for your class.

    1. create a quick game.
    2. choose king godd.
    3. save enough red, blue und yellow gems to use enrage 3 or more times.
    4. use enrage und hope many red pearls stays in the match.
    5. match 8 gems of the same color

    king godd is very slow and give you enough time to do the combo, especially with all the extra turns from the x 4 combo. i got the x8 combo after 15 minutes and right before the x8 combo, i saw many red pearls survived on my 8x8 board... most of the times the small combos let most of your red pearls disappear... with a bit luck, many of them don't match and give you a much better chance for the next time you use enrage.

    btw i didn't destroyed the 4 blocks, because maybe they fill slots and make the board even smaller and give a higher chance to let appear red pearls above the 2x2 block, but i never counted the created pearls, so this is just a theory, not a confirmed fact.

    if you use enrage many times during the main story, maybe you have enough luck to unlock this achievement without boosting... i used enrage until level 40, but never had the luck to unlock this in a match (i only managed it to match 7 gems many times)... so i decided to try it this way and it should also work for you - with a bit patience.

    good luck! toast
