Classic Achievements: Scarlet Monastery
Inspired by another Shared Topic over at Blogazeroth, where the basic question is: “What if achievements had been around since classic?” The challenge here is to design a meta-achievement and its rewards such as exists today from Naxx onward, and imagine what achievements it would get you.
The meta-achievement here is based around the idea that you would be running the instance at level and in appropriate gear – so while it would be easy to do (or perhaps even solo) at level 80 and with current gear, it’s more fun to imagine this doing it when it was still hard (you know, an achievement).
Meta Achievement: Scarlet Monsterary
“Complete all the meta-achievements listed below”
Reward: Scarlet Charger (A white horse with gold barding and red cloth drapings with the Scarlet Crusade logo in gold)
Cadfael’ed – Complete the Graveyard, Armory, Library and Cathedral wings of Scarlet Monastery.
Dug up too soon – Complete the Graveyard wing of Scarlet Monastery within 30 minutes and without anyone dying.
Rotten and Rare – Kill Aszhir the Sleepless, Ironspine and the Fallen Champion in the Graveyard wing of Scarlet Monastery.
Let loose the dogs of War! – Kill Houndsmaster Loksley without killing any of his dogs.
Target Practice – Defeat Arcanist Doan after each member of your party has been targeted by Polymorph at least once.
The Better Part of Valor – Defeat Herod in the Armory without anyone in the party taking more than 500 damage from Whirlwind.
Tabbed Hard – Loot and equip the Tabard of the Scarlet Crusade.
No one expects the Scarlet Inquisition! – Kill High Inquisitor Fairbanks and High Inquisitor Whitemane in the Cathedral wing of Scarlet Monastery within 1 minute of each other.
Kiss and Tell – Give High Inquisitor Whitemane a /kiss after she puts your party to sleep and then kill her without dying.
There you go, a classic take on the achievement system. I am sure you will find that some other bloggers gave their own take on what achievements would be like for Classic dungeons, such as Ryyus at IGemCrit on Molten Core. Enjoy!
