Grinds aka Achievements

Monday, November 14, 2011
My husband and I were talking the other day and (as usual) we started talking about the upcoming 'grinds' we were going to do.  And by 'we', I mean 'him'.  My most beloved is competely batshit insane when it comes to the following items:

  1. Mounts
  2. Achievements
  3. Pets
  4. Achievements
  5. Tabards
  6. Achievements
  7. Raiding
  8. Achievements
  9. PVP
  10. Achievements
I think you get the picture.  Since November 1st, he's gotten the following achievements: Insane in the Membrane, a ton of the ICC 25 man achievements (we're going back in today to wrap it up so we can do it heroic style), Alterac Valley All-star, and I Smell A Rat.

His next 'grind' is going to be for honor kills (sorry Alliance players!) and for gold.  As such, he's trying to get me to go into any 10 man raids (Naxx for example) just so we can loot the bodies.  (I wish I could impress upon him that his obsession with achievements do not come over to me and I don't WANT to grind everything out for months just so HE can get 10 more points on a imaginary bar.)  

He worked on Insane in the Membrane for probably about 2 years I want to say.  I'm *still* mad at him about it too.  I really dislike the Bloodsail Admiral achievement.  Mostly because during my many times questing through Booty Bay, it sucked to have my quest givers killed over and over and over again.  If he ever brings up that he did that, I get all pissed off and him and leave the room.  It's so fun!  He even did the part with the night elf mages, the books?  I can't remember what that's called but he carted so many books in there that he got exalted.  AND when I refused to go farm him the lockboxes to get his Ravenholt rep, he leveled his own rogue and did it himself.  

As for the Sewer Rat achievement, I know that he had over 500 of the crystal vials you can get  9% of the time down there.  He had been working on that before Cata came out.  So, probably a year or two on THAT achievement as well.  He's insane.

Also, before the world broke, he did the Veteran of the Shifting Sands quest.  He started playing in BC so it just facinated him.  (I was around when it went down, so it was not that cool to me.)  He actually finished that on November 30th, 2010.

And his Alterac Valley All-star, he was doing all this stuff and then realized "Oh, I just need to do X to get this" so he ran up to a tower and was going to cap it, but a kitty druid was already doing that, so what did my achievement insane husband do?  Bubbled the cat and capped it in front of the cat.  *hangs her head*  Oh Honey.  Luckily, the kitty druid was a good sport, so I didn't have to beat my husband!

Now, you might be asking, what am I crazy about?  Characters.  I love to level and if I could have 1 of every race/class combo, I would totally do that.  Right now, I'm working on my rogue (she's about halfway through level 84 now, almost 85!!) and when I finish with that, I'll pick that elemental shaman of mine and level her up (probably with J's druid).  And then, I'll take my hunter and level her up (probably with J's warlock).  Then It's either the DK or the warlock.  And I'll probably end up with 2 warlocks at level 85 before I get my warrior up there.  Oops :)  My goal is to get 1 of every class on my horde server.  Yay!
