Breakfast Topics: 37! In a row?


Yesterday I was out tromping around Nagrand with my Shaman leveling her up, killing mob after mob. There was a point that when I killed about 10 mobs in a row, and I thought to myself "Killing Spree!" Harking back to the days of yore and Quake 3.

This got me thinking. There is one critical achievement that is missing in the game.

A killing spree achievement, ideally reached when you kill 37 mobs in a row without stopping. In fact, there's a great title for it featured as the name of this article. Go ahead Blizzard, take this one idea for free. To you, from me; your friend Adam.

But oh wait, there's more. I was twittering last night about this, and there were some good suggestions that came across the feed. More after the break!

Account Wide Achievements

@Stwo wanted to see some account wide achievements, in particular an achievement to raise a certain number of character to 70 / 80. This is a great one, and I know that Blizzard intends to do account wide achievements in the future. Hopefully this will be something that'll be rolled out in a content patch, and not the next expansion.

Class Achievements

@JssSandals is asking for class achievements. This is a good idea. Something to show off that you've completed all your class quests, which I bet is something most people haven't done, especially on alts. It would be a wonderful achievement for people to work through. Plus, getting something special for actually doing your epic mount quest at 60 / 70 would be rather neat as well.

Drunken Flight

@BlackLab tweets that getting smashed and managing to fly somewhere mounted should be an achievement. My response? Right on, sir. Let me make you a Bloody Mary.

Latency Raiding

@shinigami052 says that downing heroic Kel'Thuzad with everyone in your group having 1000+ latency is worthy of an achievement. And you know what? I think I agree.

Professions Maxed

@JusticeJuice laments that there is no achievement for having maxed professions. I found this odd too as I was leveling up. It's one of those things that you'd expect would be there, but isn't.

Don't Kick The Baby

@Redfroggy suggest that Gnome punting should be an achievement. I couldn't agree more, and I'm sure you will all agree too, right?

This weekend is going to be my Kevin Smith themed weekend. Well, really it's just going to be another Kevin Smithish type post tomorrow. You'll see what I mean later...
