I got this achievement in Fornost very early on playing as a Ranger. After you fall into the ruins and are underground, you will pass through some tunnels into a bigger, open area. Head down the stairs here and activate the "proceed to next area" glowing thingy.

At this point, there should be a cut scene showing a band of Goblins rushing towards you. Use your regular melee attack (X button) until an upside-down triangle appears over your foe's head. This is your cue to use your strong attack (Y button) and has, thus far, always landed a critical or finishing blow for me. You have to be quick here, as the achievement calls for 3 of these critical hits within 10 seconds, but the timer seemed forgiving just a bit.

I was playing on normal difficulty when I did this. Any questions/changes I should make, comment below please. Good luck!

*EDIT* UGotta CheckIt added this in the comments: "With the goblins, a two hit X attack causes the Triangle to appear. So just hit X twice and Y 3 times and it's yours"
Das Kuhnen thanks for the confirmation.. i thought that's all it took, but didn't want to give false info. I'll add it.

Big Ell Das Kuhnen, did you even play the game? You sound like you just made this solution up.

Addicted2daG Thanks for the great guide. I would have had no idea what to do otherwise.
