Not sure where to ask this so, but i figures here would be best.

I have a mage i got many FoS with and a large number of other achievments on. If i was to delete it, would i lose the FoS and acheiements across my account?

Why would you delete the mage if it has so much stuff on it?

Im running out of room. And havent touched it in 2 years. Lost intrest in it. Pretty much the norm why people delete stuff

I've been wondering this myself. My old priest has quite a few feats of strength, but now she just sits on a random server and I never log onto her anymore, so I'd like to get rid of her.

She's the one who got the HH mount though, so I don't know if I'd lose that and it's my favorite mount by far. Hence she gathers dust in a corner :x

Since none of us can know this answer without trying, I'm bumping in hopes a blue can see it.

With MOP, all achieves are account wide. You have no fear of losing anything except nostalgia.

As far as I am aware, Tyrayn, as long as the achievement is considered to be "account wide", even if the character is deleted the Battle.net account, and any associated characters should retain it.

Would this apply to mounts and HK counts?

Ex - You restore a deleted toon that had 50k HKs, and this boosts your account HK count. If you delete said character, will you lose the HKs, mounts and Feats of Strength associated with it?

I'm also running out of room >.>

Fantastic. Just the answer I was hoping for.

Hopefully people can find this thread in the future to answer their question about Account Bound Achievements and alts :)

Yes, that applies to mounts, as long as the mage character has been logged into since they did the change in order to add their achievements and mounts/in-game pets to the accounts full list.

Post the account-wide achievement upgrade? or before? I deleted a warrior with my netherrocket and still had it afterwards. Not sure about achievements though, but I would assume you would.
