To level up your troops first press cn_Y when on the map screen. From there select "troops" and then select the troop you want to upgrade (You can get more troops by selecting Chests on the menu screen (requires keys) if you don't like any of your current ones). Leveling up your troops costs souls. These souls are going to be your limiting factor. The link at the bottom show how many souls it costs to level up each troop based on their rarity.

People are reporting getting one troop to level 9 and then upgrading a different troop to any level to unlock this achievement1. This can save you more than 200 Souls and is not taken into account below. If, however, you have a task to level up a troop to level 10 then completing that task will reward you with more souls than it cost to level up to 102.

The lowest amount of souls getting to level 10 will cost you is 875 for a common troop while the highest is 1305 for a Legendary troop.

The fastest way to obtain souls, besides microtransactions, is by completing Challenges. You can access Challenges by selecting a kingdom on the world map and then choosing Challenges. You'll unlock more challenges as you complete Quests. Other ways to obtain souls are by defeating enemy troops in battle (1 soul/troop), using certain troops abilities, the Treasure Chest game mode in Zhul'Kari3, using Glory in the Rewards section of the Shop (40 Souls for 10 25 Glory), and disenchanting troops (This deletes them4). (I'll add more ways to earn souls as I find them. Let me know of any ways I'm missing.)

RadicalSniper99I had an interesting glitch occur on this when I unlocked it. I had a Level 9 troop and then leveled one of my other Level 1 troops to Level 2. The achievement unlocked at that point even though I hadn't yet reached Level 10 with any troops. Just for a reference here were the troops and their rarity:

Level 9 - Dwarf Lord (Rare)
Level 1 (2) - Tyri (Epic or whatever Purple rarity is)

Toamikel@RadicalSniper99 Hopefully this happens to some more people as this would significantly cut the number of souls required for the achievement.

AndruwJonesI also had this unlock with 1 character at 9 and another at level 2. I had a boar at level 9 and a random for the level 2.

ShadowsofSatanLevelled one character to 9 and then another from 2 to 3 and it unlocked. So 9 plus any one upgrade seems to work.

motterSame here, one on 9 and leveled another from 2 to 3 and it unlocked.

FullMoonBeaverSeems like it just registers 10 level ups instead of registering a level 10 troop. Bonus.

SizzlingGoreI got the glitch. 1 at level 9 an did a different 1 to level 2 an pop.

spletchieThumbs up for the tip - Level 9 + another character to Level 2 is still working.

Also, an excellent way to get souls as well as gems, glory and gold is to play the treasure chest game in Zhul'Kari. It costs 1 treasure map to play (which I think you get randomly as rewards - when I unlocked the kingdom I already had 7 maps in my inventory). I've earned over 100 souls + a bunch o' gems and glory from just 3 treasure chest games so far.

XxB3asti3xXI had the task for upgrading to level 10 at the same time I did the glitch and the achievement unlocked but not the task. If you do have this task it is better just to go to level 10 because the reward I got for that was 500 souls.

STAGGERILLAthis unlocked for me when I leveled a troop to level 2... I was level 9 on another troop.

FullMoonBeaverConfirmed here finally. Worked hard to get my Goblin up to level 9 then my Serpent I got to level 2. On another note, Goblin is great to use. Only 6 green Gems to power up, and after you power attack an enemy you get another go. Wwon so many matches because of that.
