I go through phases of grinding out achievements due to the monotony of many of the tasks. Below are some of the achievements that pain me and some comments on others mentioned.Accomplished Angler: Although I have this achievement the number of grinds needed was pretty evil. Mr Pinchy took 9 hours, the rare fish took 6. The only saving grace with these grinds was the thought that it had to drop at some point. p.s. anyone going for this it can be good if you are stuck in a raid group waiting for things to start as you can't quest. Related to this, someone mentioned the capped limit of the people who could win the fishing tournament being the only achievement like this. The Gurubashi Arena Master achievement is the same, 12 drops needed and only one person can get one drop every 3 hours. This means the number of people who actually have it is likely less than those that win the tourny.Justicar: With the success on my battlegroup of WSG I would need to spend well over 1000 hours for this. Dire.Sinister Calling: I know a lot of people with bad RNG experiences, my worst was this. During 2008 the only part of Hallows End meta I didn't get was the Hallowed Helm. In 2009 the final day of the event and it hadn't dropped again. At last my luck changed but it could have been oh so different. Now for the rest of those masks..........40 Exalted Reputations: This one is more 'evil' for me for the changes to rep a little while ago. 'What, I spent 168 days grinding out rep for Frostbourne and Explorers League through dailies and now you can just PUG dungeon it in a day?' These changes happened within a week of me grinding out this rep and the satisfaction from doing something I knew so few had done was totally blown away. Needy: You get all the gear you need from 5 man's and your guild uses master loot. In order to get this achievement you must repeatedly ninja items just to try and get the magic roll. I can't think of another achievement that could so easily make you the realms most unpopular player. The 2 hour loot rule helps with this a bit but before......
