Discussion of the new Achievement system in WotLK has often referred to the fact that completing certain Achievements will grant their own rewards. Here’s a quick guide to the system as it stands at the moment.

Each Achievement has a point value, and the Achievements panel shows your total points score. There’s no mention yet of what points are good for – they may just be a way of keeping an overall score with no effect at all.

Achievement Chains
Like quest chains, a number of Achievements are arranged in chains – you complete one Achievement, then a harder/bigger version becomes available. For instance, there’s a ‘tabards’ chain: the first Achievement is to collect one tabard, then ten, then twenty-five.

The final Achievement in these sequential chains often carries a reward with it, seemingly related to the kind of activity the Achievement is related to.

Not all chains give rewards: for instance, the chain culminating in an Achievement for levelling to 80 has no reward – the level is its own reward, after all.

Wow, looks like I have a lot of work to do. I noticed that sometimes when I’m running somewhere, my map may be completely open in the zone but I’ll discover something. Very tricky those guys over at Blizzard. :D

I love this! I am a collector by nature and the more things I can collect the better. Now I can start on title collections too!
