I have been thinking about one of the recent “shared topics” listed on Blog Azeroth. Some responses to this topic were posted on the Twisted Nether last week. This topic asked: “what three achievements arae you most proud of?”
Personally, I really enjoy the achievement system. I used to be on an RP server for several years, and I care about running around, exploring, and being rewarded for doing silly things. I did silly things before there was an achievement system to reward me for doing them! While I don’t have tons of time to complete achievements, I do consider a couple of them to be very important for my druid.
First, what I consider to be the most druid-related achievement is my “Guardian of Cenarius” achievement and title. This requires you to be exalted with the two factions that I consider to be druid-related: the Cenarion Circle and the Cenarion Expedition.
Second, since my druid has been a raider since way back in the day, my “Classic Raider” achievement is very important to me. The only faction I had to go back and re-complete after the achievement system came out was AQ40. Other than that, credit for all those earlier raid instances were given to me when the system first came out, since I had held onto gear (or completed quests) from all the other instances to get credit for it. For my druid, remembering where I came from is important.
Third, as druids enjoy bringing HUMOR to the World of Warcraft, my “merrymaker” achievement and title are particularly special to me, especially since I run around all year looking like a tree…
I suppose while I’m on the topic of achievements, I should also plug Krypter’s Achievement Database. It’s a fun site for people who like tracking achievements and seeing what achievements other people have. It is created and run by the CSF “regulars, (ie. people who spend a lot of time posting on the Customer Service forum),
