Tip of the Blade[edit]

Acquire an Encoded Orders item that randomly drops from any bandit. This can be taken to Shining Blade Officer Ralan in Divinity's Reach to exchange for a bounty order for one of the champion Bandit Leaders. You can double click the bounty for that bandit leader's location. There are 10 bandit leaders that can be assigned. Defeat the bandit identified by the bounty to get this achievement.

Bounty Hunter[edit]

Complete 3 bounty orders to get this achievement. These require a bounty order that matches each bandit leader killed. The kills do not need to be on separate days, so multiple bounty orders can be saved up and completed on a single day. This achievement can be repeated for full rewards 6 times in total. After 6 times and a total of 30Achievement points no more achievement points are awarded, but the achievement still rewards Shining Blade War Supplies.
