IF quests involving those npc's get flagged as complete, then that means you have to have killed said NPC. Arugal, Hakkar, Murmur, Kalithresh, Bladefist, Skyriss, Zuljin, Gruul, Magtheridon, and Vashj are all involved with various quests, so if he had the quest completed before 10/23/08, then he would get credit for the kill afterwards, even if the statistics say he never killed them.
As for the various Lich King bosses, odds are he has simply never done the regular mode of any of those instances.
Dec 4th 2009 3:07AM To all the naysayers out there -
It doesn't take that long to actually acquire achievements if you set out to do them with a goal in mind. Odds are he got most of his Naxxramas, Ulduar, and similar achievements during their time as the only raid content available. This means that he's had limited amounts of actual achievements to do over time; he didn't just do it all overnight. Since he has the "Stone Guard" title, that means he's been playing since the pre-BC days, before 2.0. Odds are he's had a LOT of time to get a lot of this crap taken care of.
There's a lot of achievements, and there's a good chance he may not have much of a social life - but I'm guessing that most of you making smarmy comments aren't exactly hotshots out there yourselves. And yes, I know that the official achievement system went into place only a little over a year ago so many of these had to have been done in the past year.
Let the guy enjoy the game his own damn way.

GDKP (or simply GKP) runs have been going on my server for four years. This isn't a new concept for my server, and I suspect it's not new on most servers.

Notice a pattern here? Just because Blizzard releases stuff in Warcraft does not mean you deserve to obtain it for free. Furthermore, the person complaining about "missing content" because they don't buy Warcraft cards or the in-game minipets through promotions like this - you're not missing CONTENT. You're missing TOYS.
Missing content would be more akin to Blizzard developing Icecrown Citadel, then requiring you to pay an additional fee to be able to access it. Presenting players with an option MOST OF THEM WERE ASKING FOR, that doesn't impede on anyone else's gameplay, is fine and benign. Should Blizzard ever start developing "premium" instances for additional fees, THEN you can come to them and complain about it bitterly.
Until then, if you don't want to shell out the money for a trivial promotion, then don't. Stop whining while you're at it.
