This guide comes entirely from DyingLegacy over at Gamefaqs. This is what I used and it works. It takes a long time, yes! Some Tanks claim to have unlocked this naturally by the end of Chap 2 or 3. But for everyone that is not a tank, you will need to specifically perform the following grinding. I made a couple comments at the very end on my experience with this trophy.

"1: Unlock either One-handed sword mastery OR Rapier mastery; Righteous cross branches off and is connected to both of these skills, so either will suffice.

2: Unlock Tank EX skill. You do not need to acquire every skill within EX Tank. You just need to have it unlocked. Equip EX skill Tank for part 3.

3: Now this is the part which seems to cause the most confusion and frustration, so pay close attention... Use Protection Field to guard attacks for a set amount of time. I will explain further:

Protection field is at the start of the one-handed sword tree. In order to use this skill, you must have a shield equipped and then hold L1 while your weapon is unsheathed. The guard only lasts for about 3-5 seconds while you are holding the L1 button. For fastest results, you have to keep pressing it every time the guard wears off. Alternately, you can simply hold the button down but it will take longer to pop.

You have to guard actual attacks for about an hour to an hour and a half. The enemies level doesn't matter. I did it by aggroing a bunch of level 12 bees in a low level area when I was level 40. I just ran around and got close enough for them to aggro to me, and then I went and put my back against a wall and just patiently blocked their attacks until the trophy for unlocking righteous cross popped up.

Just have some perseverance and you will unlock the skill in no time. I would make sure that you have the first two requirements met BEFORE attempting the third requirement, that way you can properly gauge when to stop guarding."

My Comments/Notes:
- Do this solo
- Protection Field is a skill you need to buy with points.
- Protection Field is not equipped via the Skill Palette. If you look for it there you will not find it. Instead, once purchased, it initiates automatically when you have a shield equipped and hit the left bumper (LB/L1) button. This is a feature that can not be disabled or enabled. You buy the skill, it works like this going forward.
- You have to LB/L1 Guard with Protection Field still 'active'. The enemy hits need to land on the field. You can see this happening. A transparent shield-like barrier appears with each enemy hit.
- Seemed to take a lot longer to unlock this than one to one-and-a-half hours. I'd say 2 hours at least, maybe more.
- My guess is that a certain number of enemy hits need to hit the Protection Field barrier. I'm thinking 10000 or 15000 enemy hits. So with that said, the more mobs you can aggro onto you and handle without dying the better. Stun-lock will be an issue, so you'll need to find a balance.

I disagree with the above poster. I did the exact things above except I held onto L1 with the bees attacking me non-stop. Popped after 3 anime episodes.
