Out of curiosity, though, what about lookups for individual criteria? :)

Looking at this a bit further, now I have a bit of a concern. If I have a character that has completed 3,000 quests, and I load that character into my app, and, say, have a display that has lists all my completed quests (by name), won't my first visit to this page generate thousands of hits to the web service, possibly consuming my daily allotment of requests in one shot?

Yeah, it's not a huge deal after the first few big hits, because it'll all get cached. But it's a pretty steep cost for the first hit if it's a large enough list.

Can we please get more information about which faction the achievement is for?

Looking at this part of the api response

{
"id":1693,
"title":"Fool For Love",
"points":10,
"description":"Complete the Love is in the Air achievements listed below.",
"reward":"Title Reward: The Love Fool"
},
{
"id":1707,
"title":"Fool For Love",
"points":10,
"description":"Complete the Love is in the Air achievements listed below.",
"reward":"Title Reward: The Love Fool"
},


Both achievements have exact same information. But the first one is horde only and the second one is alliance only. So can we get an extra field to tell them apart?

Also would be nice if we get information about criteria for meta achievements.

Is character and guild activity not far behind now?

No, those two items require a lot more thought.
