So Daniel, what part of the achievement did you get hung up on?I saw most vitriol flung towards the Turkinator achievement. Other than that, pining for the elusive dwarf/orc rogue was heard.I think most people's problems with Turkinator were in their approach. Racing through a zone as fast as they could, killing turkeys at max range, etc etc. During peak hours, no less.My latest level 80, a priest, was able to get Turkinator on the first attempt, and held the buff throughout the entire farming session of 125 turkeys. Little unknown tidbit: The 40 turkey buffs stays with you if you continue to kill turkeys, and when you get to 80 the big Turkinator buff thingy goes off again (basically for each additional 40 turkeys killed).Yeah. This is a tortoise and the hare case. Obviously if you're competing with 90 other players even at 3am there will be trouble. But I found people would shoot themselves in the foot trying to get this achievement. You have 30 seconds between kills to find your next turkey. Despite that, bloodthirsty savages would tear through a place as fast and as furiously as they could. They'd run out of turkeys because they killed them too fast and they weren't repopping in time to fuel the turkinator bloodlust. Go slowly! If you see another turkey, walk up to it, even if you're a caster, and melee it. Heck, don't even kill it unless you see your next target already.I killed 125 in a row, with time to loot each one, this way.Oh, another tip for next year: They are beasts, not critters, so anything you can do to get their attention without killing them will have them pecking at you instead of running away. Keep one of the buggers at your side to fill in a gap.

Pretty clever. You should remind people of this strategy next year.

I was actually all ready to take on the Turkinator, the problem was that I never got the chance to sit down at a computer capable of playing WoW long enough, since I was out of town visiting the family.Next year, I'm totally remembering your strat though.
