    There's a difference between time consuming and difficult achievements, sure #8/#7 takes an extreme amount of time but there's nothing difficult about flying around Azeroth (or riding)

  • Naico

    Aw come on - the Explorer achievement in WoW may be time consuming, but it's certainly not "hard".

  • Saka Shima
    Saka Shima Month ago

    Explorer in WoW took me a casual Sunday afternoon. Not playing anymore, but the hardest achievement to get when I played was Insane in the Membrane. Still some pvp achievements might even be harder.

  • Patrick Morgan

  • Megahot1989
    Megahot1989 Month ago

    Insane in the membrane took me around 1 - 1.5 years, before the patch that made Darkmoon Rep become easy to get. That was playing for several hours per day!

  • UlshaRS
    UlshaRS Month ago

    NOPE! I disagree.
    WoW Explorer is a passive achievement. Insane is the hardest, even more than the protodrake achievement that takes a literal year minimum. That this one was chosen means the one determining it has never played WoW

  • bandits8ups
    bandits8ups Month ago

    Okay for number 7, from world of warcraft, I believe the holiday meta achievement is the roughest... But more specifically the children's week achievement, "School of Hard Knox" but there are much harder achievements. I completed Explorer at lv64 on ground mounts during Wrach of the Lich King on my first character. So it was super brutal once in northrend and area 52 at lv50

  • Pinkie Twinkle
    Pinkie Twinkle Month ago

    Just because it takes forever, doesn't necessarily mean that it's difficult. A lot of these achievements I believe if someone just plays the game, then in due time they'll get it. Just because it's time consuming doesn't mean it's difficult.
