Like Andrew R above, the wife and I only need this one last achievement for the meta. Of course, I will continue to try and complete this frustrating and mind numbingly designed achievement until the holiday is finished but if we are unable to complete it (and bear in mind we both work, so can't play in the day or too late at night) then I will be thinking long and hard about continuing my subscription. I'm not sure I agree with giving money to a company that treats loyal customers (3rd year of continuous payment) that have, without fail, chased all the previous meta achievements down over all the festivals only to screw you over at the last hurdle by making a compulsory shitfest the final goal.We both play clothies with full pve gear. And bliz just flipped us off at the finish line. Thanks guys.

Go check out LOTRO, it's much more casual friendly, I think, and the game is cheaper too. Although you tend to have to group to get past the 30s/40s, so says my wife. She eventually gave up because she refuses to group with anyone.

Oh no you can't get one achievement!Blizzard must hate you, let's sue them immediately!

JayPea, do you have Sinister Calling? I hear that's another major hurdle before getting the Violet Drake - and unlike SoHK, there's not much one can do, other than hope for a good RNG... =/

How did they exactly flip you off at the finish? You know that the achievement is there - it's been there - didn't go anywhere. Why haven't you been practicing or at least become semi-decent at pvp to handle this achieve if you wanted it so badly?Look, my main is Zantrix on Feathermoon (a mage that i rarely pvp outside of WG) - check out all the achievements that I dinged up yesterday including FIRST TIME WINS IN BATTLEGROUNDS LIKE EOTS AND AV. It's not that hard folks, and it just took me a few hours of effort to get the achieves out of the way and now I'm sitting on my pretty purple proto-drake.Oh wait, did I say 'effort'? My bad - that must be the problem.

This. I don't pvp much at all, but I have been working on a hobo pvp set for a year, and doing the odd BG to practive PvP, and now the first day of the week, I have my ProtoDrake.

"Oh wait, did I say 'effort'? My bad - that must be the problem."Exactly which part of 'I will continue to try and complete this frustrating and mind numbingly designed achievement until the holiday is finished' was difficult to comprehend?
