In Guide 4 of the Exploration achievements, there's something called getting Race Level 5 in all three races. What is that talking about?
Gaining exp until you get too level 5 in all 3 races?

Were you abused today or something?
Race level 5 sounds like something from hitler's book
In the expansion you can gain experience/levels from playing, which unlock icons and unit skins.
Tarnations


watch out.

we have a badass over here.
Means you're pretty good at the 50, 100, as well as 150 yd dash.

The expansion isn't out yet, but this achievement is, in WOL (not HOTS). So what's up with that? And what kind of playing counts? Campaign? AI? Do any of you young whippersnappers know from having got this achievement in in WOL?
U cant get it in WOL

Dag nabbit! Then why is it part of the WOL achievements list? It's in the Exploration achievements, and every other achievement there is a WOL achievement.

And, is this "experience" solely from playing the ladder, or from other parts of the game also?

The experience also includes playing unranked matches or Vs AI.

Also, the achievements are there to piss you off and make you buy HotS so you can unlock them.

Just like how the level indicators are on the profile page in Wol but they dont do anything.

Because 2.04 is the prelude patch to the HoTS version. It's preloaded to make the transition easier.
i don't agree with this assessment, they added 5 achievements, 3 of which you can accomplish. and 2 you cannot? sounds like we simply don't know how to do them yet.. to me?

couple people here being usefull. the rest are people with 500 achievement points telling a person with 5 times that how to get achievement points..seems ridiculous.
I know this is an old question now but I was trying to figure out how to get this achievement myself and I couldn't find inquiry anywhere else, so I felt I would follow up and post the answer; also I do not have HOTS, I only purchased WOL. In options click gameplay and the first setting is Expansion Level, select Starter Edition (Hots). Because I didn't buy HOTS, when I go to play everything is locked except 1v1 ai, however that game will earn you points to collect for reaching level 5.

party with someone who has hots, and play a couple of games vs ai/humans to get your level up.
