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.
