Making the World of Warcraft more trivial, one post at a time…

So, Achievements. Good fun, but a bit of a distraction, and certainly not worth going out of your way for, right?


Oh, dear me. I have so very little willpower…

  • I think a lot of people are in the same position. I certainly didn’t intend to do many of the achievements.

    And yet yesterday I found myself exploring the reaches of Duskwood.


  • I think I’ll hop on and go discover some places. Not a difficult achievement, and certainly one that’s easy to do whilst sick and not wanting to make any effort. Heh.

  • @Isisxotic – I think Blizz did a clever thing with the achievement UI. It presents such a “check-list” approach that it feels almost irresistable.

    @Karine – Also good ones to do in a spare 20 minutes in the morning, before work….

  • I found myself exploring the Plaguelands yesterday… telling myself, “oh, it’s just to kill time until raid time. It’s cool, I won’t feel compelled to keep doing this.”

    Or so I said, until I delayed getting a summon from Quel’danas to Karazhan so that I could eat every food and drink every drink that Caregiver Inaara had to offer.

    I may have a problem.
