Hunter beats Wrath of the Lich King

Basil Berntsen

More evidence of the superiority of the hunter class has recently emerged: Caspi, hunter extraordinaire from the <Refuge> guild on the EU Taerar realm has officially beaten Wrath of the Lich King, having achieved 11,635 achievement points. This is no mean feat -- even though we reported just over a month ago that Caspi was getting close, the next most recent time we posted about something like this was last summer, when Zoltan had achieved 908 of 931 possible (at the time) achievements.

Zoltan appears to be both in the same guild as Caspi, as well as very close to him in achievements points. I, for one, would like to take a moment and say on behalf of hunters everywhere to paladins everywhere: neener neener!

Achievement points and achievements in general are an interesting mini-game, in that while you can earn points, there's nothing you can do to spend them. Still, it's a very difficult accomplishment that requires mastery of many other parts of the game. Some of the achievements that go into this take ridiculous amounts of skill, resources, luck and patience.

Tip of the hat to Caspi!
