It Is Done

It's been a long time coming, but thanks to some wonderful guildmates, a little bit of luck, and lots of perseverance, I have finally done it...9,000 achievement points.

I got that little push I needed a week ago when our 10 man was very short on players, so we decided to do a 5-man Naxx run. We ended up finding a few more than 5, but while we were there, we finally did And They Would All Go Down Together. Which finally...FINALLY completed my Glory of the Raider. Oh, and just for the hell of it, we did Spore Loser too.

But with the Glory of the Raider putting me so close, I had to seek out other achievements that I was close to completing - like Me and the Cappin' Makin' it Happen. I was at 46/50, so I just queued up for a few Arathi Basin fights, used my blink to beat everyone to the first flag every time, and even won a few games. This one really upset me though:

I didn't have the most damage, but you can clearly see I was atop the leaderboards - why? I didn't die. I had 44 honor kills and 19 killing blows (which I had no idea about until the end of the game). Otherwise I would have gone out and gotten Wrecking Ball. Oh well, them's the breaks.

So as you could see in my first picture, I got It's Over Nine Thousand! by completing Wintergrasp Ranger. I'd like to say I feel sorry about how I got it, but I don't. I could never get any hordies to come down and fight me fairly (I did try), so I had to wait for a mining node to spawn and then fight them when they tried to mine. So I easily killed this poor warlock once this way and he came back and then just flew around for 10 minutes, before finally thinking I wouldn't kill him again. But as he landed to collect some fire from a gas cloud, I once again blew him up. This time, he tried to put up a fight, but to no avail. So thank you Veroarth.
