If you have completed the five virtues go back to the Lake to complete the Quest, after that you receive the Aerondight Sword and the Achievement.

Here’s the map:

How to Use / Stack The Aerondight

Okay, it’s not that complicated. You need to perform 10 successful back-to-back attacks and if you get hit by something, you lose half of your stacks. After that, you need to kill something to get the additional damage points. It has a damage upgrade threshold and its threshold rises when you level up so don’t worry when you maximize it. You will get the chance to re-stack.
