I still don't understand why they got rid of the Realm-First Level 85 achievements for each race. =\

Well, if they are going to include Worgen and Goblin, then that would give those who pay extra for the RaF bonus an unfair advantage.And if they weren't going to include Worgen and Goblin, then there's really no need to add the other 10 races as achievements.

Also because they are going to allow race-changing at launch, so those with level 80s of existing races would be able to get to 85 faster of the new races, than those that started the new races at 1. Plus it was much easier to just kill an achievement than add the coding in (I'm assuming).

Did they remove them at some point? I haven't followed on that part of the news but last I heard theres 2 types of feats for the new races.."Lost isles goblin" (1-85 start quests done)"Realm first goblin" (x-85 without start quests)

It wouldn't be too hard to remedy.1: Require Goblins and Worgen to complete their respective starting zone quests, which was in the Realm-First achievement to begin with.2: Make players who use RaF ineligible for the achievement.Problem solved?

I am VERY glad that they aren't giving achievements for being the first to go 1 to 85. Blizzard already has really devoted fans (heck, I'm one of them), but if they gave recognition for doing something that's supposed to take days of work, there would be some ridiculous fans that would put their own health at forfeit to get the realm first.It's not a fun way to play the game, and it's not a healthy way to play the game. I think Blizz is being very responsible by not encouraging that sort of behavior.
