As you no doubt know, the new patch (and the expansion) are looming on the horizon, and one of the things that they bring is the new achievement system. Some of them will even grant new shiny titles to players who fulfill their prerequisites.

So, is anyone willing to take or make bets on who will become the first SSE Battlemaster? :D

The thought would be to make people take BG's more serious obviously.
But would this make them focus more on achieving some stupid quests than actually winning?

As long as there is arena I would never play a BG's for any other reason than HP so I wouldnt care a shit about a BG title tbh.

Thats....far far too much work for something as silly as a title.

Although


- Kill someone before he dismounts

They just don't want nub warriors to get it... like you... hohoho, on fire today.

I'm kind of wondering if you could abuse heroic leap with an enemy mage's living bomb to get up there actually...

But if you have someone else take their health down first and then use weapon throw you'd probably get it. (100% ap? that's going to hurt :/ )

Of course both that achievement and the 2000-1990 ab one are very unlikely, so part of it will be down to luck (or getting opposing premades to help each other finish off the list).

The achievements remind me of the TF2 ones personally, a few ones that require time, skill, and being lucky. I'm guessing its not beyond possibility for these to be farmed?

Achievement premade.

Let enemy cap 4, then at some point capture all but the closest to enemy starting point. When enemy has 1990 points, cap the fifth flag. A decent premade will totally dominate a pug.

Quite a lot of these would be easy for anyone to do, provided they can get a well geared premade together (surely the most difficult task if they are not in a hardcore guild).

I think I've done all of those except 2200 rating in 2v2 and exalted AV mount. (Added an "I think" to look less silly if it checks PvP history and I'm lacking more than I remember. Possibly some EotS shortages).

Oh does it take into account past achievements?

Turiel

For some things it takes into account past achievements, other things not. Basically if you think there would have been a valid reason to store the data related to it before, then maybe it'll be counted. But counting your av wins etc wasnt necessary to record before.

Not worth it for something as silly-sounding as "Battlemaster Adharc".

Maybe if it was something custom, or more like GRAND OVERLORD Adharc, DESTROYER OF WORLDS, would it be worth it to grind and suffer through all that nonsense.

Good suggestion.

Arena Master will be it's own achievement with title. Battlemaster will now only include the Battleground Achievements and will have its own title.

We'd still like to add a World PvP meta-achievement with some type of reward.

I hope they won't make us do more Outland pvp-zones pvp. Good luck finding people to kill in Halaa after WotLK.

Well if that happens, I'd imagine a few people may want the title, so we could organise a Halaa Battle Royal. I'll be Randy Savage. Ooooh YEAH!!
