Bringing a New War

Bringing It Further

Bringing It Further

This post is part of the For the Record series, which suggests new ideas for Achievements.

Right, so it seems my post are going to be a bit more scarce in the upcoming time.

The reason? Well, I suppose Wrath of the Lich King is somewhat to blame (status: my Hunter is currently level 77), but also the fact that coming up with ideas for so many names is a tasking task.

You do however receive a high-quality post, and you do know that quality is better than quantity, right? Right?!

Yes well, that’s my excuse anyways, and that’s what you got.

So, back to topic. I am still working on achievements. This post is number five, in a series that should reach the total of ten posts (10 classes, 10 posts). This time, it is the Warrior that is getting my attention. It is the Warrior that is challenged with various missions, if he wishes to be known as the one that bring forth war, or more simply put, the Warbringer.

I know, some of the ideas are not as original as I would like them to be, but really, it is getting harder and harder to come up with something that is new. This is related to the fact that I have already invented over 50 different achievement, and the innovation pool is running dry.

Yet, somehow, somewhere, within this list, there are some achievements worthy for true Warriors, and come the day they might exist, those fighters will venture forth and try to complete them.

Still Here

December 15, 2008

Just a quick hop-by to say: I’m still here, and the next post is still in the making.

I’m just more occupied lately.
But it’s still coming, maybe even tomorrow.

Prophet: Foreseeing Greater Deeds

What Does the Future Hold?

What Does the Future Hold?

This post is part of the For the Record series, which suggests new ideas for Achievements.

Allow me to apologize for the long time it takes to bring up those posts. Quite surprisingly, it is a lengthy process to invent all those achievement names, and I sometimes find myself stuck several days before anything worthy comes to my mind.

Plus, I have also been caught up with the flu for a few days during the week (*sad panda face*).

Anyways, I have finally completed the task, and compiled a list of achievements for the Priest class.

So far, this has been the hardest post to write, which is something of a mystery to me. From what I have seen on Wowhead, Priests have the least number of skills in comparison to Druids, Hunters or Paladins, yet it was pretty hard to finish up this post.

The reason? As I’ve said, it is a mystery of sorts, but I do have some speculations. Priests have a vast number of healing skills, which I find harder to invent achievements for. In addition, all their skill names are, well, holy-like, and hard to word-play with.

And that’s another reason why it took longer than the usual.

Oh, and for those who have no idea what I am speaking off – I am a blogger on a mission to come up with class specific achievements for all the classes. My goal in mind is that when a player completes all those given achievements, he will be granted his special class-specific title.

For the Priest, this title will be, the Prophet.

And here’s what he must accomplish to get it.
