I'm hoping all achievements are account-wide, along with whatever pets, mounts and titles come with them.I think the way to make people who have done all the World Events on 10 characters would be to have a section on the achievements that says "Completed 10 times" and list the character names and achievement dates. That way it can still show that you put A LOT of time and effort into it.But yeah I'm all for it. I want them to say that mounts in general will be account-wide as well. I live in constant fear of running a place on an alt that can drop a mount and end up getting it on him and not my main!

Making about everything that is either absurdly time consuming (insane), limited (feats of strength, seasonal events), or simply too hard (some of the raiding achievements) account-bound would have another nice benefit: it would remove most of the regret players feel about changing main characters.This should, in turn, usher players into trying more classes and play styles, which could work wonders in reducing burnout and renewing interest in the game for old players (who, incidentally, are the ones most likely to have an extensive collection of achievements on their main characters).

I've got some pretty exclusive stuff -- original CE pets, Murky from the original Blizzcon, the two TBC titles, the Herald of the Titans title -- and I think it'd be great to see these used more often. I'm not diminished in any way when someone else has those goodies -- frankly, I want to high-five the folks who do.Share away!(And, frankly, if I didn't have to do a year of holiday achievements for each of my alts to get 310 flying, that wouldn't be the worst thing in the world, either.)

My reason for wanting to see account-wide achievements? It'd hopefully cut down on the "LFM for (insert raid here), link X achievement to prove you're worthy." spam in Trade.

I never want to see "the Kingslayer" on anyone below level 80. Just saying. Some things should be practically sacred.

I couldn't be more on favour of account wide achievements, but i really don't want to see the titles go account wide as well. I've got 8 chars at 85 right now (still working on dk and lock!), but i don't want them to all have access to my main's titles. Maybe it's just me, but... The rest of them didn't earn those fancy titles, my druid did. I, as a player, have done certain things, sure, and i'd like that to be ascertainable by a glance at my achievements no matter what char i'm on. But my paladin never killed the lich king; my druid did. My paladin is not a kingslayer. My warrior is not an Argent Champion; the argent dawn thinks she's a chump. It's my druid that slaughtered hordes of undead to become their champion. I'm not really a roleplayer, but i feel like there's some flavour to each of my characters, and i really think that rolling a level one, and having him spawn in his start zone as nubcakes the kingslayer, or merrymaker nubcakes, or even just nubcakes the patient, just doesn't work.

I kind of have to give the side-eye to people who talk about their separate characters like they're separate people and how this one didn't earn something like that one did (and how they don't want to buy their alt epic flying because they feel like they're paying child support to that other character). Uh, your characters haven't done anything, they are pixels. YOU the person earned x title.Anyway, I hope that all achievements, mounts, pets, titles, etc. go account-wide-- but that the display of some of them is mediated by class. For instance, my paladin's mounts would go into my account pool of mounts-- but only characters with the appropriate access (race/class/level) could select those mounts and ride them. Same with titles-- you'd need to be 85 to display the firelord title, for instance.
