I'm mostly trying to work on fishing from pools, since not many other folks in the guild are interested. Can't blame 'em; I find fishing to be absolutely mind-numbing. Hopefully we'll be done soon.Also doing waaaaaay more dailies than I typically care to, in an effort to get a couple of fresh 85s to Honored so they can count towards the "Classy" achievements. I'd be doing more guild runs, but I usually only get to play in the middle of the night when nobody else in the guild is on.I'll be hammering at that famed rat'n'spider cave in Eastern Plaguelands once I have more time, theoretically, though I have a feeling that the guild will finish up the critter achievement before I get done with this &@$%ing fishing one........ ah well.

About the critter achievement - gather up a few guildmates, and head off to the Deeprun Tram. Each critter a guild member kills will count as a kill by every other guild member in the vicinity as well, unless, of course, this has been changed, but I don't think it has.My guild was having a hard time killing 50,000... and then six of us went to the Tram. Within half an hour to forty minutes of rat killing, we went from 25,000 critters killed to the top 100,000 needed for the second achievement. And after that, we decided to lay waste to Ironforge for the City Attacker (or whatever it's called, I forget) achievement, since the same "each kill counts as a kill by everyone" thing applied there too.Have fun!

Actually, that doesn't work anymore. I had my guild raid stop by the icebergs off the coast of Borean Tundra when we were traveling between EoE and OS for guild raid achievement runs. The penguins only counted once each, not x10 like we expected. My guess is that Blizz stealth nerfed it.

Unfortunately that all guild member getting credit for critters was nerfed in the last patch. We only did a couple of runs in EPL before that bonus ran out. We did however manage to get to 50k critters in our 5 person guild by using Stormchops in the Deeprun Tram. Use a chop, AFK out for 1/2 hour then rinse and repeat. Gets you about 600-700 critters per hour.

The multiple credits per critter kill disappeared in 4.0.6. They took the "Squad" out of "Critter Kill Squad".
