The OverAchiever: The 25 most evil achievements finale

What are evil achievements? They're the soul-killing rep grinds, the raiding milestones that required sacrificing a farm animal to get, and even fun pastimes like battlegrounds into which a sizable dose of misery has been added. Eventually you just want to grab the nearest developer and shake him back and forth, screaming, "What the hell were you thinking?"

Welcome back to our series on evil achievements, which has encompassed the following articles: This week we'll examine the five most evil achievements in the game. Gird your loins and gulp your antacids, my brethren. You will find nothing but tears ahead.

What are evil achievements?

Eventually you just want to grab the nearest developer and shake him back and forth, screaming, "What the hell were you thinking?"

This week we return to our series on evil achievements, which -- if you're just joining us -- started off with the two previous articles: This week we'll examine #15 to #6. To be frank, I would hesitate to characterize them as being in any strict order, as many are heavily dependent on RNG, and some will be easier for some classes or players than others. Next week, we'll be featuring what I consider to be the five most truly evil achievements.

The OverAchiever: The 25 most evil achievements, part 1

What are evil achievements? They're the soul-killing rep grinds, the raiding milestones that required sacrificing a farm animal to get, and even fun pasttimes like battlegrounds into which a sizable dose of misery has been added. Eventually you just want to grab the nearest developer and shake him back and forth, screaming, "What the hell were you thinking?"

Last week I previewed three of the most evil achievements in the game, both to collect my own thoughts and to canvass commenters' opinions for a larger article. This week, I'd like to present the first set of evil achievements for your reading, wincing and antacid-chugging pleasure.

A note on judging the "evil value" of achievements
: I've been adding to this list for a while, and it's drawn from both the achievements we've covered in this column and some I've seen players complain about frequently in game. Obviously, there's no real way to quantify exactly how difficult or excruciating achievements are, so I'm going with the definition I gave above. Any incredibly difficult or RNG-saturated achievement made the short list, but I also tried to keep some unusual picks in mind. In this vein, there's an achievement in today's column that, while extremely easy by today's standards, was a screaming horror when it first debuted. I may wind up doing a list of honorable mentions as well.

So, in no particular order, I am pleased to present World of Warcraft's 25 most evil achievements, starting with #25-16 this week.
