I most certainly did! Not a single lunar fest NPC interacted with, and I spent absolutely no time working on vanity achievements.

Hard to accept from someone who has their own OCD occupation. Did any of your alts leave the auction house long enough to realize there was an event of any kind? :)

I'm not trying to claim that my pixels are somehow more valuable than yours, I just prefer not to spend time earning virtual currency that can't be spent. Things like gold, valor points, and conquest points can be spent to get that ability to earn these points faster. It's all part of the feedback loop that has us all logging back in every day and paying our monthly fees. Achievement points, however, feel empty.

Didn't mean to insinuate any superiority BS going on. Just pointing out the irony (since I recognized the name) of what I read as your sense of accomplishment: "I didn't waste my time on meaningless pursuits...I'm too busy making gold" The irony of course being that all that gold (and as you implied, what it buys), and my violet drake are all equally nonexistent and meaningless. The only value in either is the enjoyment we receive in "gathering" our digital rewards. I found the implicit comparison laughable, hence the comment.
