Most of the hidden achievements in KoA seem to resolve themselves through normal game play (defeat this guy, complete on hard, etc) so I imagine the answer to this one is going to be along the same lines.

According to the lists of Steam, Xbox360 and PS3 achievements these 5 are specific to Steam.

  • Exterminator
  • Give Her a Hand
  • Keep on Rising
  • Manic Pixie Dream Elf
  • Message in a Bottle

What are the requirements of these 5 achievements? (I should note that Steam shows 0.1% of players have achieved them, so they are being awarded.)

  • @Ravendreamer The achievements might be different between the steam and Xbox360 versions, which is why I tagged this for steam.

  • I just checked the achievements on Xbox360Achievements.org, and I don't see this one listed, so definitely Steam specific.

  • Does it not show up under the in-game achievement menu? (It may be listed as secret, but I doubt it simply doesn't exist) Feb 8, 2012 at 19:56
  • According to steamcommunity.com/stats/KingdomsofAmalurReckoning/achievements it does exist or did you mean that it most likely does exist on xbox360? @RavenDreamer

The "general" requirements for these 5 achievements are (According to Giant Bomb's achievement list):

  • Message in a Bottle - Located all eight message bottles in Gallows End.
  • Keep on Rising - Gravehal Keep has been fully restored.
  • Give Her a Hand - Found Aubrey Gilcrest's severed hand.
  • Manic Pixie Dream Elf - Wooed Rast Brattigan.
  • Exterminator - Killed 50 Scavs.

I'm assuming these are related to specific quests in the game, but I haven't encountered these quests yet, so I don't have more detail than this.
