Wrecking Ball. i got that one in SOTA about a month ago. i know what most of you are thinking: "grab a healer, and let there be killing blows". :) but you are missing out all the fun, fear of getting killed, and that you have to start all over again.
It's Over Nine Thousand!Because it represents 3 years of my life I'll never get back.
My personal favored achievement is Charger I know I know, most likely alot said, but I did it after you could buy the mount from trainer, but did it still. I'm proud of it and as wow rp'er as add to other gaming it makes me even more proud to have the mount, it had more depth when you had to do the questline than buy it.
Make Love Not Warcraft, that's my favorite and it's kind of bizarre, you kill one of the opposite faction and then you make love to the corpse.I think thats pretty weird.
It is What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been without a doubt. It as took the whole year but the world events makes you get into the holidays. I think they're fun.
I'm very proud of my Achievement. Mostly because it felt like such a grind and felt great to finally be done once I got it.
I would have to say the achievement I'm most proud of is Turtles All The Way Down! I absolutely love turtles and when I found out about the turtle mount, I HAD to have it. I spent soooo many hours fishing for it (and we all know how boring fishing is..) so when I finally caught it, I was really pleased :)So much so that I told my guild about it all day and the guild leader took a screenshot of me on it and put it on the website. Tehe :3
School of the Hard Knocks. I know many have gotten the meta-achiev "Trip", but to me, it's definitely this one. Somehow, I wrapped three of the criterias in one day (second day of year 2011) but Alterac Valley criteria was...impossible! All week I was searching the net for a good way for it but I found nothing. It only depressed me more when I saw many had been trying 2-3 years just for that one! I am an achiev farmer and it hurt my pride as one NOT to get this. So I endelessly farmed. To no avail.The second to last day, I logged in and queued. I was about to leave my home for work, so I didn't care much, it was just another try, but I wasn't expecting anything. To my surprise, I saw my group move away from the first tower and only two including me were heading there. I ran to the tower. Then, a very nice surprise was waiting for me. Both pointed to my orphan and /bowed to me. I got the meaning of it and they attacked the guards, leaving the road open for me. I quickly went to cap the flag, but an enemy player attacked me! At that point, the two others-which happened to be a rogue and a warrior-went to the offensive and took that player away from me, stunning him as well. Once more I capped the flag and this time I was succesful. I got the achiev, that and For The Children, since Alterac Valley in School of Hard Knocks was my last one.I am not really proud of actually GETTING that achiev than I was actually helped to get it. Cooperation and helping other players is what drives me to BECOME a better player. So I am also wiriting here my thanks to that Rogue and Warrior, who cared more than enough to help me get an achiev that otherwise would have failed.
Has to be Dreadsteed one on my lock. It was such a big deal getting that done back in the day.
I have a love/hate relationship with my Glory of the Ulduar Raider (10 Player) achievement. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a challenge and I -love- the mount that is mailed to you for completing this achievement (in fact, the Rusted Proto remains my favorite and most-used mount out of my 115-ish), but it's bittersweet. Firstly, the 10-man group I earned it with back when Ulduar content was the highest tier has since disbanded. And I still have nightmares of wiping on Yogg-Saron's 1-light hardmode for hours when I think back to the day I earned it - or of running through Mimiron's fire while Laser Barrage bugs out and "jumps" backward on its path to wipe our whole group.
My favorite would have to be Glory of the Cataclysm Hero. It takes skill and isn't too easy to get yet. The mount you get is the best looking in game imo and not many on my server have it yet so I love it :)
I would have to say my favorite achievement would be (trying to remember them all) the Mountain o' Mounts. It's hard to tell but according to armory I believe I was the first person on the realm to get this ..beating out an Orc Warrior for it. All the whispers I got for such a pretty mount was pretty fun and proud.I also have 2 memorable ones as they leave a sour taste in my mouth but were still fun and memorable. I have NOT earned these achievements.1. Scarab Lord : I completed this questline back in Vanilla WoW but missed the bang-a-gong window. Then I wasn't lucky enough to get one during the great "bug" exploit when Blizzard's accident closed the gates on some realms and they were allowed to re-open them. I was also a wow noob all the time and didn't understand that you could server transfer and bang a gong on another realm. When I finally did realize this there were only a few realms remaining and they all finished the war effort before you could transfer.2. Deathcharger's Reins : Being an original Vanilla Pally tank, Undead strat was a playground / training ground for me. I must have run that instance "over 9000" times. We were even selling the baron timed events for the tier .5 gear. However, to this day ..No mount. But I still love running it.Dough <Achievement Whor....er Achiever>
Easy, the achievement I'm most proud of would have to be . I remember how difficult it was to get . My favorite achievement though would have to be the feat of strength achievement for getting the Venomhide mount. I remember taking care of him before you could even fly in Azeroth an remember how picky he could be, however the reward was worth it.
I guess it must be Baron Riverndare mount reins Feat of Strength achi. I hunted that mount down over one and half year before giving it in. Then couple of weeks later I was boosting Stratholme for my younger sister (!) and those reins dropped. My sister knew how long I've been after those reins so she was really nice when no rolling for those. That's one of the most pearly moments on my World of Warcraft career.
