Sigil from an Achievement Diary, when? As it stands, they're more or less dead content unless you're maxed, bored, and have tons of time to spare. "The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits."

They've been added simply to annoy Comp players, because that's all they do.


Achievements aren't comp reqs. Just a rung on the ladder of the new high score table.

If you're not into bragging about being in the top 100 of 'something'. don't let it get to you.

As stated, the 'tasks' are white-wine-ideas. Great when 1st thought of but then reality hits and they're just tedious, boring or silly acts that some will do just to be in the afore mentioned 'TOP 100'

The shit will really hit the fan when RNG is added to the achievements to extend their playability, like most every other update recently.

I'm already neither concerned with Comp or those high-scores. I must admit I did find the idea somewhat amusing that every Comper would log-in and find their cape missing until they surged a single tile into a wall, threw a tomato at the Livid Farm girl, and another 198 tasks of similar stupidity.

If they're not required for anything except highscores, they really will be a waste of time because the only reason any players do lots of the other silly achievements that already exist is because of Comp or some kind of other reward (like Ardy Cape).

I'm not really a fan of a lot of the pointless/whimsical achievements, when they don't encourage exploration of gameplay (introduce people to things they may not have known about), don't require skill, and don't relate to any lore, or perspective on a place (especially when they award RuneScore, when they do none of these things).


I do like a lot of the ones that are still whimsical, but actually have a purpose (such as getting people to use content, explore, discover mechanics, or think about the lives of the NPCs/lore).

I like the ones that have a challenge to them (like the Raids Feats), and encourage/give people a reason to really explore content in depth - I wish they'd add more of these, especially for content that is often considered "dead", but is actually really engaging, once people have had a reason to actually try it.

Achievements in many other games are also completely pointless, e.g. jump on same spot 100 times etc. These kinds of achievements are clearly catered to other players and not you. Just because you don't see a point to them doesn't mean others won't.

If an achievement is not showing you something useful or advancing your character in some way, I really don't want them.

Tan hides shows you something useful.

Form an "X" on the ground with tanned hides you dropped is not useful.

Surge one square is not useful.
