In WotLK, when we got achievements, it started several chains of collection goal achievements, since then every other has gotten new goal counts, except for quests

Last updates:
3000 Quests completed: 3.0.1 (I think?)
10000 Daily Quests Complete: 5.0.4
10000 World Quests Complete: 7.0.3 (started in 7.0.3)
Collect 1600 pets: 10.0.0
Collect 500 Mounts: 10.0.0
Collect 500 toys: 10.0.0 (Started in 6.0)

The exact cap of whats possible right now is unclear due to calculation oddness (see post script)
however is is 100% possible to pass 18,000 in this quest’s criteria (with current calculation) and it would be great if we could get corresponding achievements! :slight_smile:
Perhaps, 6k, 10k, 15k and 20k for future?

PS: dev’s if we could get clarification on how this achievement criteria is calculated that would be great, it sometimes seems to count daily and seasonal quests temporarily while they return true for completion,

however the count also seems to be lower than sometimes expected, when running an ingame API request for return completed quest ID’s its around 800 higher than the number listed in the achievement criteria.

There’s a reason for this.

Up to this point, there have been hidden tracking event quests that could count towards quest-completion Achievements. Those hidden tracking quests could result in a player (who carefully counts what they’ve been doing) receiving a ‘50 quests completed’ Achievement after only counting 44 visible quests.

We’ve made a change in the forthcoming Fractures in Time patch that will put a stop to that. After this patch is released, only quests that you see and accept and complete will count towards quest-completion Achievements. Players won’t lose any progress or lose any Achievements they already have, but from that point on, quest-completion Achievements will be counted correctly from the player’s perspective, and shouldn’t appear to be awarded earlier than expected.
