To me, it depends how you look at the achievement. I flipped through mine, and I would sort them into two catagories:ANYONE CAN GET:A Brew-FAST MountObtain an epic Brewfest mount.09-28-2009Deathcharger's ReinsObtain the Deathcharger's Reins from Baron Rivendare in Stratholme.02-13-2009Onyxia's Lair (Level 60)Defeat the classic, level 60 version of Onyxia.10-15-2008 STUFF THAT SHOWS HOW LONG I'VE BEEN PLAYING:Tabard of the ProtectorObtained a Tabard of the Protector from the Dark Portal event.09-24-2009Swift Flight FormCompleted the druid quest to obtain Swift Flight Form.04-15-2009The Fifth ElementObtain an Aqual Quintessence.01-21-2009WoW's 4th AnniversaryLogged in during WoW's 4th Anniversary.12-01-2008KnightEarned the title, "Knight".10-15-2008Champion of the NaaruEarned the title, "Champion of the Naaru".10-15-2008Hand of A'dalEarned the title, "Hand of A'dal".10-15-2008- - -I mean, the dates are all fucked up, but the idea is there. I actually got Barons mount and Ony's death at lvl 60, but even up to level 80 you could solo/duo those. Brewfest just happened.The rest of them really show the age of my character. Most of them look to be from the BC area, but a couple of them (Knight, Aqual Quintessence) show that not only was the character around at 60, but she was an active raider and PvPer, too.Of course, these achievements are about as worthless as any other achievement -- points awarded or no. I'm proud of them, though. They're neat things that I can look at every once in a while and think, "yeah, I was there for that. And man, did I have fun."All achievements are worthless. Doesn't make getting them any less enjoyable.

> WoW's 4th Anniversary> Logged in during WoW's 4th Anniversary.> 12-01-2008This just proves you logged during a specific weel with your toon (even a level 1). I would not consider it a proof of "HOW LONG I'VE BEEN PLAYING".

That's exactly what it shows, actually.

You've been playing for less than a year, not really that big a feat :)

It exactly shows how long you've been playing.

Yeah what an odd thing to say Rugus.I've got to agree with mattheggrammer and some others posting positively on the subject. Some feats of strength are significantly less difficult to get than others maybe but they are nice. It IS nice to remember things you've done, that you have achieved, before the content got removed. In fact i'd say some of the feats of strength are actually more impressive or more nostalgic than a lot of normal achievements.It's all a bit of fun and it's nice to have a "badge of honour" as such, for things you've done and taken part in, even if some of those things are really just a timestamp to say "I was here when this happened" you will find way before achievements were added people used to tell everyone else proudly that "I was here during the ahn qiraj gate event" or "i remember the first scourge invasion" etc now we get little nods for it. It's good, harmless fun!

I do like having certain feats that give titles that are unobtainable. My Blood Guard title isn't overly impressive because of it's PVP rank, but it's fun to bring out now and then to show how old my character is. Champion of the Naaru is along the same lines although BC still seems pretty new.
