Topic Account-wide Achieve' Progress
This is just a suggestion - and mainly has to do with people who have many characters at level cap.
It would be very nice if more achievements shared progress on an account-level. What I mean by that are things like # of exalted reputations, gold looted, gold from quests, loremaster quests completed etc: integers towards an achievement. The sum of exalted reps can be unique reputations, as well as loremaster quests completed, etc.
Honorable kills achievements (e.g bloodthirsty) already share value on an account-level, so it is possible to do.
I know for a fact I, and many other people, have some of these achievements completed on an account-wide level, but they don't neccessarily share account-wide progress.
Such a change would be an exponential quality-of-life improvement for many players. I know for a fact I will never get 70 exalted reps - because I don't want to do Netherwing or Sha'tari Skyguard a second time on my other character who already has 20 (no threat here, just fact).
I agree with this and already put a suggestion in with the in-game suggestion tool. I just started this character; obviously, and I want to use it as my new main (had the same hunter since 2007); however, my hunter has TONS of reps at exalted. Some aren't even available anymore.
I'd really like to keep all the hard work I put into that guy. I don't need the benefits of the old reps, I just want the credit for the reputation based achievement. Like, say I have 50 total on my hunter. Then, I get 10 on this guy; I want the achievement system to see I have 60.
It's really hard to want to play a new main if I don't keep all that work. It's why I avoided switching for years until the account wide system came out.
This is exactly my feeling. I played a Paladin for years and I recently decided to change for Death Knight. Unfortunately it seems I won't have my 45 exalted reputations achievement which sucks because I GRINDED every point of my reputations. Now I have to do it all over again to get the achievement since my Paladin is so boring to me since the patch.
They told us achievements were going to be account-wide, well reputations have achievements too.
