The achievements are coming! Hear ye, hear he! The achievements are coming! Sorry, we're trying a new type of news dispersal technique at Massively that involves riding around on horses and shouting at townfolk.

"Sure, why not?"), and it's a fairly immersive reminder that the planet's con...

While most achievements in game are available to both factions, there are a few here and there that are limited to one faction only. Of these few, one is so obscure, so out of the way that most Alliance players don't even know of its existence, unless of course they've spent a lot of time carefull...

World of Warcraft certainly has a dizzying array of achievements in all shapes and sizes, covering quests, raids, and PvP.
