I have been playing World of Warcraft for almost 10 months now, and as most people know, once you’ve started playing, it is very hard to stop. I have two level 80 characters, a paladin, Illasera with protection and retribution specs and a discipline priest, Viconia. Both are fun to play, however, my primary character for achievements is my Paladin Illasera.
There are plenty of reasons why I chose my paladin as my primary character for achievement runs.
- My Paladin was the first to reach level 80. My priest followed almost 4 months after, but by then I had already started accumulating achievement points on Illasera.
- Most of the achievements require strenuous grinding for hours and days at end, and it is not possible to do it on both characters at the same time.
- Achievements also require doing a lot of daily quests and as a healer, without enough damage throughput it is very time consuming to finish them fast enough. It is much less time consuming to do quests as a retribution paladin. I usually finish a round of 11 dailies of Argent Tournament in 55 minutes as a retribution paladin.
- Being a protection paladin, I can also solo most of the daily group quests, reducing my reliance on friends or fellow guildies for achievements. Even attempting to solo group quests as a priest is certain death!
That being said, I still join PUGs (picked up groups) if they are doing achievements as Viconia, though my main preference remains Illasera.
Note: The only category of achievements that I am not tracking on Illasera, are the PVP achievements, since I prefer playing PVP as my priest. I guess this also gives Viconia something to achieve 🙂
