I love achievements for my own reasons.In my mind, they offer little additional challenges that I might not have otherwise thought to partake in. In other ways, they offer a nice little checklist to go along with my completionist nature.Storytime: When I played WoW years ago, before achievements, I would run around places like Durotar and Mulgore with my Human, just to uncover the full map. And this was before I even had a mount because I wasn't level 40 yet! I had also done all the low level quests in all the starting zones, just so I could see the stories behind their questlines (now this was a pain in the ass because there was no Low Level Quest tracking. I just had to run around quest hubs, mousing over any NPCs I saw.)So, when I decided to take up WoW again recently and saw that little things like that were now neatly organized for me, I was overjoyed. I was gonna get Loremaster anyway, but now I get a couple meaningless points when I do. :)Still...it makes me wish I hadn't taken that long hiatus from the game. Had I not, I feel the odds were pretty good I might have gotten a world first Loremaster. ;)
