Working on Achievements
It wasn’t that long ago that EQ2 added achievements to game, and if you’re the type of person who wants to complete absolutely everything they can on their ‘main’ character, chances are you’ve spent a lot of time hunting down the more elusive achievements to add to your collection. I haven’t gone out of my way to obtain them, but last night Wpus suggested we clear up some of the simple ones that had been kicking around our quest journals. There were a lot of exploration achievements that I could easily finish off simply by visiting one location or two, so that’s what I spent last night doing, running around to hit the few locations in a zone I had never been to before.
I admit, I like achievements. I think it gives people who thought they were ‘done’ with the game something else to strive for. While they don’t exactly have a huge affect on the game you can get some pretty neat titles and gear from completing them. It’s also a good way for me personally to separate my ‘main’ characters from the rest of the level 80’s I have, as those ones will tend to have more achievements then my other characters.
Have you been working on achievements since they’ve come out? Have any in particular that you really enjoy? Any achievements that are not listed that you’d like to see? Let me know!
Doesn’t help that the shorthanded and flawless achievements for raid targets are bugged. We did a one group shard of Hate run and should have got shorthanded and flawless achievement dings for all 3 names. Nope, Flawless on all 3, only one shorthanded :(
Honestly, I think I’ve only logged in 3 or 4 times since Achievements came out, and I’ve not tried actively to get any of them, though I tripped one I didn’t know existed while questing in EF by completing 25 quests in the zone. Wasn’t a big deal.
