Another blogger mentioned one of the bonuses of the new achievement system is you clearly get to see what of the old content you missed.
Which zones have you completely cleared of quests, completely discovered? How many recipes do you know, or more importantly, not know?
I discovered some interesting stuff regarding zones.
As I expected, some zones were completely explored, others not at all (primarily Horde).
But then there are the surprises.
Time to start exploring!
The thing that is a bit disappointing, is not knowing exactly what has been missed, or at the very least what exactly has been completed.
I know, I know, this seems a little contradictory, but here’s the specific issue.
I know 203 tailoring patterns – so what don’t I know?
Or as my friend mentioned the other night, he is missing 6 quests from the Ironforge area – which ones? Are they class quests he isn’t entitled to?
If he at least knew what quests he had completed, he could then research what he missed. I know there are mods out there that will track your quest completion, but they require that you install them, and maintain them from the moment the Toon is created, otherwise they have no access to quest history.
I think the time has come for Blizz to:
- List the achievements on WoW Armory (I want to know off line what I have/want to achieve)
- List recipes known and quests complete (and preferably those left to complete, though I understand Blizz may not want to dispel the mystery).
Goals, I want clear goals!
For that I need clear and complete online and offline information.
Gnomer and Out!
