You know what, guys, I don't like it.What is the point of achievements if they are not?If you don't have to do anything but complete quests, it's not an achievement, sorry.I am Exalted with several old world factionsArgent Dawn, Cenarion Circle... It took me MONTHS of hard work to get to exalted. The challenge and thrill of getting exalted with a faction is going to be similar to that of being exalted with Tranquillien...My take - make achievements hard. Making things easier for the achievement grabbers is dumb.But then Blizzard made the game stupidly simple now. No challenge in getting recipes, leveling is easy. BoringTry to go back to the original game. Look at BRS, BRD, Mara, DM - these were hard, challenging, satisfying.just my 2Copper

Hey Malkavos, being derisive to others because you don't agree with their ENTIRELY VALID point of view really reflects poorly on you.Chebu, I absolutely agree that there's no pride to be taken in getting ridiculously easy achievements. When doing something like talking to a vendor earns you an achievement, getting congratulated on any of the achievements really feels that much more hollow.There are, however, difficult achievements out there that you can pursue, things that genuinely show how good you are at the game you want to play (be it PVP, Raiding, Small Groups, or even playing the market). The thing is, YOU have to make them more special than the achievements for failing to wait for an elevator, because the game itself weights things poorly.

Sure there could be fun and easy achievements.... But reputation related achievements should be hard. Getting exalted with a faction should mean something.What, for example, is the point with the entire Horde reputation drives in North? The only one that gives anything (and lousy at that) is Horde Expedition... Why do the others?
