I find the comments about druids 'ab'using travelform and moonfire a little out of place, unless it is meant with regards to griefing. I used those when I got my turkinator achievement last year, though, I certainly had no competition at the time. The extra speed bought me a few extra seconds if I had problems locating one, plus I can't stand running at normal speed and mounting takes too long between short kills. One could argue hunters shouldn't use track beast (assuming turkeys would show up) and/or no one should use an instant cast spell/attack. Blizz gave druids spells and they should use them. In this case those abilities happen to be very helpful.Now if they are griefing others, that is a whole other story entirely...

They were griefing others. They would run around in Travel form, pop out, and Moonfire them. As soon as someone turned to another turkey, Moonfired that one.

I know that last year I was nowhere near level 80 and trying to do it in either Elwynn or Tirisfal was hell on earth - as soon as I got near a turkey I'd get attacked by a mob and then someone else with nothing to fear from that wolf or duskhound would roll in and take the turkey from underneath me.I wouldn't say that was griefing but I'd still ask people to be more considerate this year. Now I'm level 80 I will let people "younger" than myself do it and camp somewhere else.

I agree with Jair. If we have the tools available to us to succeed at this achievement, why shouldn't we use them? It's not abuse if you're just trying to finish the task in the very limited time you have... Especially when the area is crowded with others trying to do the same. Remember... This is World of WARcraft.

Thank you for the clarification that it was regarding griefers. I certainly have no love for them. I would have issue with people QQing that druids had an advantage, as depending on the required quest/achievement/what have you, different classes have different advantages.Hard to believe people would waste their time trying to disrupt others from getting an achievement, but then, I don't really understand why people grief at all.

Yeah, it's probably the one achievement that we have a solid advantage on, versus all the "kill 50 enemies while under the effects of the x509 transformatron" achievements that are (were, at least) a pain in the ass to do in caster form.
