Achieving the AchievementsNovember 21, 2008
I realized I haven’t really talked about achievements much yet. Well, here’s my deal. I like ’em, but I’ve found I’m not really going out of my way to get them like I thought I would. I love the little *fa-shwing!* sound and the flash of light they come with, it gives me almost the same feeling that gaining a new level does. But I have found that going back and running old dungeons I’ve run before, or grinding rep for reputations I don’t need anything from just isn’t as appealing to me as playing an alt or something.
Maybe this will change when I’m done school and have the time to spare to sit around and get [1000 Fish], but for now, I’m just enjoying the ones I get just by happening upon them. Now that I’m leveling again, I am making sure I get the ones done I can while I’m working my way to 80, like the exploration ones and the loremaster ones, but these achievements are nothing more than an enchancement to the game. I don’t feel I need to get them, but don’t mind putting in a little extra effort if I’m really close to getting one.
Speaking of achievements, a big congrats to Boostah, for getting [Realm First! Grand Master Skinning] and [Realm First! Level 80 Troll] and Ardena for getting [Realm First! Grand Master Fishing]. Great job 🙂 Boostah was so close to getting the level 80 Hunter one too. He definitely got the [Guild First! Level 80] achievement covered.
