The announcement about Achievements got me excited about Wrath of the Lich King expansion.
I think EQ already has this, but the achievements actually improve your character. These are more like maybe LOTRO things like exploring several places will give you a "World Explorer" achievement.
I was excited and at the same time sad. Because the things that are stopping me from playing soon - spending too much time in-game, well Achievements make it sound like I'd be on acid.
I never ran out of things to do really, I just ran out of things I considered fun. And achievements sound like a ton of fun things to chase after.
Exactly what would keep me playing hour after hour after hour.
I look forward to them adding it. Not for myself. But for other gamers who don't have a problem with their slash played. :)
