In-game achievements have turned out to be one of the most popular additions to World of Warcraft introduced alongside the Wrath of the Lich King expansion. Even veteran players now have trouble remembering what the game was like before their introduction.
One of the coolest things about achievements is that they give players of all levels something to work towards besides higher levels, newer gear, or honorable kills. There are achievements for practically every facet of WoW gameplay, and our achievement guides here at the Bright Hub MMO channel have covered them all.
For those who may be unfamiliar with the whole achievement concept, we have a great Introduction to World of Warcraft Achievements that will bring you up to speed quite quickly.
