Are you looking for a guide to achievements? Click here for our Achievement Guide. Below is a list of the General achievements in the game along with the easiest way to obtain them. You'll want to reference our Guides Portal for some achievements that involve dungeons or items that may be difficult to obtain.

The name of the achievement is the name you'll see in the game. The next column describes how to obtain the achivement while the points column tells you how many points that achievement will award.

Master of Arms
You need to raise four weapon skills to 400. Doing unarmed gets you to the achievement below which leaves you to get four more. Casters can look into daggers (or maces for Priests), staves, swords, and wands while melee classes can choose from whatever their class can use. You'll get one or two weapon skills ot 400 by just getting to level 70, so it's not that hard. You'll need Wrath of the Lich King for this one.

Did Somebody Order a Knuckle Sandwich?
How do you get 400 skill points in unarmed combat? Easy! Just punch a lot of things with your fists and you'll get to 400 in no problem. Well, it's not that easy. Find some really beefy enemies that can't do a lot of damage to you and whack away with your fists (unequip any weapon that you have). Beat them senseless until they fall to your mighty blows and grab another to rough up. It'll take awhile, but it also helps the Master of Arms achievement. Do try to to throw in "fisticuffs" somewhere into chat while doing this. You'll need Wrath of the Lich King for this one.
10
Safe Deposit
Buy all seven of your bank slots. Not too expensive if you're high level.
10
Got My Mind On My Money
This one awards ten points for every milestone (100, 1,000, 5,000, 10,000, 25,000). The game keeps track of how much money you loot so everytime you loot gold it'll save a running total. So just keep playing the game and you'll get the high numbers eventually. As a note, the name comes from Snoop Dogg's song Gin and Juice.

Epic
Equip an epic item in every slot with a minimum level of 213. This is a tough one, since it requires at the very least raid epics of wrath season 2 gear from my understanding of item level. If you're raiding then this one will come naturally as you 'purp yourself out.

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.
