The coming of Cataclysm, whats happening to our Achievements.


A guild mate asked me about a list of things that were going away with cata. I’m not going to pretend this is a full list, in fact I’ve yet to see one that is recent and confirmed. So I will try to put together the best list that I can from what I know.

For a start, I found this site http://senilityguild.com/judgmental/201 … h-in-cata/. Its as good a place as any to start. Some of these in fact have already been taken out, like the weapon skills.

* Zul’Gurub is now a Feat of Strength.
* Deadliest Catch is now a Feat of Strength.
* Hero of the Zandalar Tribe is now a Feat of Strength.

* Master of Arms is now a Feat of Strength.
* Did Somebody Order a Knuckle Sandwich? is now a Feat of Strength.

* The Undying is now a Feat of Strength.
* The Immortal is now a Feat of Strength.
* He Feeds On Your Tears (10 player) is now a Feat of Strength.
* He Feeds On Your Tears (25 player) is now a Feat of Strength.
* Champion of Ulduar is now a Feat of Strength.
* Conqueror of Ulduar is now a Feat of Strength.
* A Tribute to Skill (10 player) is now a Feat of Strength.
* A Tribute to Mad Skill (10 player) is now a Feat of Strength.
* A Tribute to Insanity (10 player) is now a Feat of Strength.
* A Tribute to Dedicated Insanity is now a Feat of Strength.
* A Tribute to Skill (25 player) is now a Feat of Strength.
* A Tribute to Mad Skill (25 player) is now a Feat of Strength.
* A Tribute to Insanity (25 player) is now a Feat of Strength.

With Cata will come the removal of ZG as a raid instance, this is most definitely confirmed (as are the following 3 removals). This means a couple things overall.

*last chance to get the ZG Tiger mount.
*last chance to get the ZG Raptor mount.
*last chance to get the Razzashi Raptor pet.

According to MMO-champion the tome of polymorph turtle will be moved elsewhere, but where has not been announced at this time.

Something else not on this list is the effects of the Feat of Strength Insane in the Membrane. From what I understand from questions asked by a beta tester at Blizzcon (and a slight misquote from GC), one of the reputations for this FoS is being removed from Dire Maul. The Shen’dralar rep. There’s nothing to spell out that if you have this reputation you will be able to complete it after the xpac, so my suggestion would be to finish this asap. Alas its far too late in the game to start it if you’ve not already.

Contrary to belief, Loremaster does not appear to be being removed. However, it will be heavily effected with the coming of the xpac. If you have it, or have not started it, you will be unaffected. If you are working on it however be advised that any quests you have completed, which will be deleted in the xpac, will be deleted from your total as well.
The same holds true for exploration achievements. Outlands and Northrend should remain completely unchanged afaik.

The Blue Drake that currently drops from the bag after completing a random Occulus, will be returning back to its home of Malygos 10 man, the Azure Drake will remain Maly 25.

Apparently the AQ quest chain (old Scepter/AQ gate chain) is also retiring in the xpac.
I have some achievement whore mates on another server, I’ll be asking them as well if there is anything they know that can be added to this list. And of course if you know of something I missed please post to let people know!!
