How much precision will be supported when fetching small pieces of data?

If we only want to know one piece of statistics information, say the number of "Quests Completed" will we be able to specify that we only want that information and receive a response that is limited to the basic information and just that one data point?

or, will we be specifying ?fields=statistics and getting back *all* the character stats at which point we can pull out the "Quests Completed" stat that we're interested in?

There is no doubt a point of diminishing returns where it doesn't make sense for the API queries to return teensy tiny data elements that are more expensive for the server to find than they are to send but do you know yet where that point will be?

I'm curious about achievement data in particular as that is the vast, vast majority of data in a character. How specific can we get?

The difference in the amount of data returned by an "all" achievement data

versus a sub-section:

or an individual achievement:

could be quite significant in terms of volume of data returned.

I'm just quoting this because I'm wondering the same thing and I didn't see a related blue post. The armory page currently offers a slew of random factoids, such as number of deaths. Will I be able to get these individual nuggets by themselves, or will I need to accept a particular set of them all at once?

Detailed statistics aren't available yet. It seems there is a meteor in the way blocking the transmission or something.

However, total HK's are the last item in the optional pvp field of the character API:
