Hallow’s Grind

I’m normally good about doing holiday achievements.  Its a fun sidetrack while I’m online for the times I’m not involved with anything.  We’ve now been doing the whole achievement thing for about a year – enough time for people to do the entire holiday circuit and get their violet proto-drakes.

I’m still missing a few holidays.  I didn’t do Children’s Week because I refused to do the PvP achievement.  I missed the Winter Veil achievements just because I wasn’t into achievements back in December and I didn’t find the Winter Veil activities to be fun.  And I skipped Hallow’s End completely.

Hallow’s End and the Love is in the Air achievement sets are the grindy-est.  Logging on every hour to trick-or-treat?  I have better things to do with my day.  Killing the Headless Horseman over and over and over and over to get a drop or two?  Yeah – not interested.

Last year when this came around, I quickly decided I wasn’t interested, and tuned out the entire holiday.  That means I didn’t even get enough of them done to make it tolerable this year.  Now I look at the list and I’m undecided if I want to be bothered.

I may or may not eventually get all of the holiday achievements.  If I do, I think Hallow’s End may not happen until 2010.

    I refuse to do the PvP part of children’s week too, but probably for different reasons 🙂
