Another WoW forum classic is your proudest achievement.

For me I think it has to be

50 Exalted Reputations

It reminds me of some of the horrible grinds I've completed and some of the more enjoyable reputations in the game. Becoming exalted with a faction is an achievement in itself and although for the majority its just a matter of time played it still feels great knowing I'm loved by the majority of Azeroth (well NPC's anyway!)

So what is yours? Is it a particular raid achievement that you completed just before a nerf? An old Feat of Strength that is no longer obtainable?

As always, over to you!

I'd say Heroic Madness. For the first time in my short raiding career, I was part of a team ahead of the curve in terms of progression. We got it at the 10% nerf being the 2nd 10 man guild on a VERY large server (30k+ players), so it filled me with a sense of accomplishment. That raid team fell apart due to the monotony of clearing heroic Dragon Soul in 90 minutes, so I put together my own guild and am in the process of teaching others all of the fights and helping them get their Savior title. The Madness kill was the biggest Blizzard signaled achievement, but removing myself from just a DPS role into a guild leading and raid leading role has been far more rewarding. Remember, your gaming experience is not monitored by the number of purples you have but by the friendships you acquire over your time of playing.

There is always a greater sense of achievement when you're leading the group. The progression feels a lot more personal, especially if you are playing with a group that you have developed and helped to improve yourself! Its a great thing starting a new guild and teaching players who maybe havent raided much before. Much needed in a long standing game like WoW so good on ya! Progression is a personal thing as well. Im currently helping a guild raid in Bastion of Twilight who has never raided before and its still a challenge for those guys.

Agreed, my raid team spent Firelands floundering about making very little progress in HM but after our lead stepped down I stepped in and brought on a co-raidlead and we've been tearing into HM DS. 6/8 currently and are so close to downing Spine that I can taste it.

There is nothing quite like taking over RL and getting better progress than your predecessors... Plus getting (decent) HC progression makes a difference too.

Though I would say my proudest achievement must be getting lich king about half an hour before the nerf... with aspect on. Ahem.

Im too impatient with too much gold burning a hole in my leather pants! hehehe! Other than {Petting Zoo} my proudest was 20 exalted reps.....

I like questing and lore stuff, so my proudest achievement would have to be Loremaster. Just that since we started Icy Veins, I never managed to complete the last few quests I need in Blade's Edge Mountains and Netherstorm.

I've been thinking about this for quite a while and honestly do not know what my proudest achievement in game is. I enjoy getting all the various achievements and working towards them, however nothing really sticks out to me.

I guess if I had to pick one then it would be
Glory of the Firelands Raider

Catacylsm was when I really got serious about raiding and it was the first raid I made the most progression on while the content was relevant. I guess with that I can throw in Heroic Nefarian as well, although that happened after Firelands was around.

From Hell's Heart I Stab at Thee I solo'd this on 01/25/11 on my fire mage. 3 tries and 45 minutes approximately to succeed on the last try. Had to maintain perfect range and no kiting mistakes in that time frame.

I disagree, even though its not something that requires things like raiding per se, it takes a lot of time, and its definatley something not everyone has.... i still havent finished mine. Way to go Skullflower! Im energized now to finish mine, and its definatly something to be proud of :) ANY acheivement that someone is proud of , wether its considered difficult by others or not, is still an acheivement for a reason :) and something to be proud of :) <3

Getting the 40 man Onyxia's Lair achievement late in 2010 when the ability to actually do that particular raid and therefore obtain that particular achievement had been removed in 2009 :D
