The negative side of achievements is worse then the benefits.-Elitist Guilds/Groups who won't even invite you unless you already have the achievement for having beaten the target(s).- Lazy Raids/Groups who do the same for everyone but themselves, so they can get carried through the target despite their gear/skill level.It's become a E-Peen barometer for the most part, and despite having pretty much every raid/heroic achievement, I routinely avoid and ignore such LFG/LFM calls.

This! Last week I did a LFG with an un-chievement requirement. Just to give people a chance, only people without the achievement were allowed to join the group . And the run went really well!

Those elitist and lazy players all behaved the same way before Achievements. Then they judged you on your gear instead of your accomplishments.Achievements do offer a personal sense of reward. I don't need a group to get many of them. Titles are also a fun way to personalize your character, and show your commitment to other aspects of the game. I was able to get Merrymaker on my Undead Rogue long before I could fly in Northrend. It took some very creative gameplay to get on that flying ship in Icecrown, but my personal sense of accomplishment made it worthwhile.I don't think anything will curb the rude, elitist behavior of some players... except for some form of shock therapy! Now that would be awesome!
