Personally, I really enjoy the achievement system. Even well before it was implemented I played to collect all the recipes for my tradeskills, for example, or collect as many mounts as possible. Do every quest in the zone, etc. So it was nice to have some in-game system of recognition for playing the game that way, rather than just trying to be uber or the first guild to clear X or Y.Furthermore, as my friends and guildmates quit playing, I found myself having to rely on PUGs to get into raids. On the realm in which I play, the guilds seemed to fall into two extreme camps - on one hand, the ultra-serious guilds that were too hardcore for a working, family guy like me (even if I could get into one of them), and on the other, the twelve year old Anal [ability] linkers.The achievement system allows me to manage to still enjoy WoW despite broken PvP, immature players, and all the other standard gripes. Otherwise, I think I'd have stopped playing long ago, probably around the time most of my guildies left.Still working on getting Donegan The Insane. One of these days, I'll get around to finishing it.
