This achievement is for killing Priscilla the Crossbreed in the Painted World of Ariamis.

You enter this area from Anor Londo, in the giant church. You'll come into this building in the rafters first while fighting gargoyles, and after crossing them you'll reach the huge spinning platform you can use to move up and down to various levels. If you move it down one level and go to the bottom, you can step into the bottom floor of the church.

The giant painting at the back can be examined to bring you into the Painted World, but only if you have the Strange Doll. This can be found by going back to the Undead Asylum:
-Start riding the elevator shortcut up from Firelink toward the Parish, and step out partway up
-Move to the right side grassy area, then roll forward to land on a big pillar
-If you don't have it already, grab the item you can see on the roof nearby after climbing up. This is the key you will need to get to the other part of the Asylum.
-Follow the pillar and stairs up to the crow's nest, press A to roll into a ball when prompted, then wait to be taken back to the Asylum.
The Doll is in the cell you started the game in.

Be warned that once you enter the Painted World, you can't leave until you make it to the exit. There is a bonfire right at the beginning and quite a few things to fight and explore.

To get to Priscilla, you need to open the big doors in the middle building that will lead toward her. To do this, you need to reach the courtyard area (from where you can open the big doors as a shortcut back to the bonfire) and go into the building on your left if coming from the bonfire. Go downstairs into a really dark room with several of the wheel skeletons, and there is a crank you can turn in there to open the door.

Once you have, you can walk all the way to her (with some enemies in the way) and she will ask you to leave. If you attack her, the fight begins. She will turn invisible, so watch the snow to see her footprints and anticipate her attacks. She is using a scythe, so she can hit a wide area and fairly far away.

Once you hit her a few times, she will appear and be targetable. Get in hits while you can, and then the cycle will repeat. Make sure you hit her tail enough to get Priscilla's Dagger prior to killing her. Once you have won the fight, you can leave by walking toward the ledge at the back.
Panda Jenkins I would just like to say that while I was fighting Priscilla she did not become visible at all after I striking her in any situation. She was invisible the entire fight.

DradusContact She became visible to me once her health went down to about 50%. I struggled through the fight and couldnt get the dagger, was just glad to make it out alive.

Bendall 117 If you hit her with a fire orb or fireball she will lose invisibility.

Cormyre Using a fire weapon helps as it drops her invis after a few strikes

If you're loaded up on souls/humanity on your way to her and don't want to chance losing them prior to kindling/leveling/etc you can walk past her to a ledge in the back of the room, this will initiate a cut-scene and bring you back to being infront of the painting where you can examine, go back in and do what you need to do before going back to her (or create a nice leveling run doing so) since as stated she's not aggro before taking a hit.

originalhks keep in mind that killing her might make you become sinned

Kev0222 Fire has nothing to do with her becoming visible. She simply becoming visible when staggered. She becomes staggered (like everything else) when she recieves a certain amount of damage in a certain period of time. So doing small damage single hits infrequently means she will never become visible.

Kev0222 You also don't need to open the doors to get to her. If you kill the top half of the undead dragon and then walk over the top of the bridge to it's legs and hit them with a jump attack they will raise allowing you to drop down about 3/4 of the way across the bridge.
