What three Achievements are you most proud of?
I’ve had this question ringing in my head for a while now. As it seems, it has been a topic on the US Warcraft forums (which I didn’t know even existed before the WI article), and it even become a Breakfast Topic on WoW Insider some days ago, so I guess that I’m not the only one that had that idea. And I think that’s a really good question to ask. After all, we’re doing these achievements, and not all of these are even remotely hard to get. Still, I don’t think it’s easy to choose one of them, so how about three? Let’s try that! :]
This is the one Achievement I’m most proud of, and this title is the one I have on all the time, even though I now have a few others. If you look closely at the date, you can see that I got it after the pre-Wrath patch – even though it was officially removed, you could still get the title if you had the last quest in the chain in your questbook. Which was exactly my case – I’ve done all the heroic stuff before, killed Gruul, and then came that nasty time before the expansion when nobody bothered to sign up for even the easiest raids. So I still needed to kill Magtheridon. I was frustrated (because we killed him a lot of times before and it wouldn’t be a problem if we got more than 10 people signed), but I kept the quest and eventually went to see the old Maggy with a Trade Chat PuG. Fortunately the PuG consisted of enough guildies who actually knew how to click on the cubes, so we killed him without too many problems.
This one I got this weekend. I like it a lot, because it is one of the harder dungeon achievements. The achievement requires a hunter to kite the Watchers away, and the rest of the group to unload on the boss, and it’s not exactly the easiest thing to do. We wiped for an hour on this boss just to get it right, but I felt so good when we finally made it. The time spent on perfecting our strategy (and the 120 gold repair bill afterwards) was well worth that feeling.
And the last one. I wanted to have a Netherdrake since I saw the elf demon hunter in Nagrand and did the quest that involves flying around the Burning Legion camps on his drake. Earning enough gold on the AH and finishing the reputation chain was a long task, but I still use my Onyx Netherdrake from time to time. After all, he’s been with me through a lot.
And now a question to you. What Achievements are you proud of?
