Achievements for instances should never have been implemented IMO. It's become very common place, on my server at least, that people look to see what achievements you have before inviting you to a raid. It seems that no one wants to bring someone new to content which is very sad indeed.The inverse is true as well...people use the event of gaining an achievement as a means to criticize your performance. Just last week I ran HoL for the daily on my toon that had not yet got the achievement (the other 80 has long had it) and before I could say "woot", the PL was criticizing my DPS because he saw me get the achievement and thought "noob". Didn't stop to ask what spec I was playing or whether their zerging made my DOT-dependent class less effective. All because of an achievement.

It IS very sad. Everyone wants to be elitist and perfect in every way possible in the game. Could someone show me someone who has actually done that? And once you get there, what then?

Sorry, not "everyone". That was frustration and annoyance speaking.
