    Insanely easy. In the very, very, very beginning of the game, you're in a courtyard-like area with enemies that keep spawning and spawning and spawning. With the game on easy, you almost never get hit, so just keep slashing until you're at 100 hits. I got it without even trying.

    auvryndrarExact same thing for me. I'd also like to note that there's a lot of time to get it. I messed up and lost a 46 combo and ended up still having enough enemies to get a 123 hit combo to unlock both the 50 & 100 hit combos.

    I somehow managed to not get this at any earlier point but discovered a side quest that makes it very easy to get once you reach the second half of the game.

    To avoid spoiling much I will just say that once you get the first key fragment you will be able to do some new side quests from Devola in the village tavern (just as always throughout different parts of the game). She will give you a quest that is requested aid from the butler in the manor. This involves a friendly shade in the manor study. All you have to do in this quest is kill it but it won't fight back. It has a shield which is resistant to melee damage but this won't stop you from building up a combo by hacking away at it. Simply just get your weakest 1 handed sword and hack away until you reach a combo of 100.

    This guy can take a lot (or at least on your first playthrough) so it is very easy to. To reassure that statement while I got my combo to about 80-90 at first the npc glitched through a bookshelf and moved a fair bit away from me making me start my entire combo again, but I simply just hacked away for another 100 hits and got it.

    If you are on your second playthrough and you still haven't gotten this achievement, you can obtain it easily in the final dungeon.

    On your way through the final levels, you will encounter an armored boar. As per the story, you will need to take her down once. After that, she continues to regenerate, regardless of how often you take her life down to 0. A green mist exudes from her while she's regenerating.

    Instead of running, arm yourself with a Very Light one-handed sword (damage really doesn't matter) and hack away at her without hesitation. You'll be able to easily knock her into submission and continue your chain while she's regenerating. You should reach a 100-chain without even trying.

    I specify a second playthrough simply because she's pretty effin' tough on the first.

    Achievement should pop right after the chain count breaks 100.

    Good luck!
