As for the original topic...
If a vanity pet is bringing your system down... You should prolly just scrap the system. And for new dances... Go watch someone else dance. Like at a club and leave the non-sense QQ out of WoW -_-
Mar 12th 2009 1:05PM Achievements are just another way to play a game. Being that WoW isn't the only one with the achievement system, it's something that on other systems/game that has given a player something to work towards. Sometimes, achievements are nothing more than busy work that force you to play everything the game has to offer, but in reality, they shouldn't be anymore than just a marker or a badge to show off (gloat even) about what someone has completed. I sure hope they don't implement any sort of rewards system for achievement points.
