Top 10 Easiest Achievements in World of Warcraft

Looking to break into the world of achievements but feeling overwhelmed? These 10 achievements are sure to put some quick and easy points into the achievement bank.

Earning achievements is something that is either loved or scorned by the World of Warcraft community. For those that love them it can become close to an obsession or be simply a way to spend some down time between other important events. But for those just entering the world of achievements, things can be a little scary, especially when faced with some of the more daunting achievements out there.

To make things just a little less intimidating we here at Ten Ton Hammer have put together a list of the top 10 easiest to get achievements in World of Warcraft and I’m not just talking the super simple ones that my five year old could complete (although there very well may be a few of them as well). And now without further adieu, your list of the top 10 easiest to obtain achievements:

Shave and a Haircut

Visit a Barber Shop and get your hair cut.

If you’re a hardy adventurer like I am, then you probably get a little scruffy from time to time. So what better way to feel refreshed than getting a fresh new haircut and hey while your at it why not pick up an achievement along the way? Sweet deal right? To obtain this achievement players simply need to seek out a Barber Shop which can be found in the following locations:

  • Trade District, Stormwind City 
  • The Commons, Ironforge 
  • Cleft of Shadow, Orgrimmar 
  • Trade Quarter, Undercity 
  • Area 52, Netherstorm 
  • Cosmowrench, Netherstorm 
  • Dalaran

Once there sit down in the chair, choose your new style, empty your pockets of some coin, and prepare yourself for a spiffy new haircut. Once completed you will earn the above achievement with little to no work at all. Also in case you were wondering...Roger Rabbit will not burst out of the wall regardless of how many times you tap this tune on the wall.

[PROTIP]The cost of changing hairstyles depends on the player’s level, low level players will only pay a few silver while higher level players will pay quite a few gold for the same cut.[/PROTIP]

Make Love, Not Warcraft

Emote /hug on a dead enemy before they release corpse.

Ever feel a hint of remorse after smiting your enemies on the field of battle and want to say sorry? Well show them how you really feel by using the /hug emote on their cold dead corpses BEFORE they release from their corpse. To make this a little simpler binding /hug to a macro ensures that you can get your /hug off before your foe can flee from your loving grasp. Complete this action just once and you will gain the above achievement for your efforts!

To All The Squirrels I've Loved Before

Show the critters of Azeroth how much you /love them.

Who doesn’t love squishy cutsie little critters, especially those found in Azeroth. Gain an easy achievement by wandering from zone to zone showing your appreciation to these often forgotten, but important members of the animal kingdom. To complete this achievement simply seek out each of the critters listed and use the /love emote on them. This achievement is especially easy with the addition of more flight points than most people know what to do with in Cataclysm. Because of the travel required for this achievement players may find themselves bored. Spice things up by making a special macro:

/cast [insert spell of choice here]

Using the above macro you can literally love your target to death and we all know you can't get much better than that! Check out the list of critters below for an idea of what you are up against:

Squirrel Borean Frog
Chicken Shore Crab
Ewe Small Frog
Hare Rabbit
Sheep Swine
Prairie Dog Steam Frog
Cat Cow
Deer Fawn
Gazelle Parrot
Ram Skunk

Don't forget that if you enjoyed earning this achievement there are two other similar achievements currently available in game: To All The Squirrels Who Shared My Life and To All the Squirrels Who Cared for Me.

Going Down?

Fall 65 yards without dying.

If you are like me and have fallen off every ledge in the entire game at least once (who knew one could be clutzy in real life AND in game) then there is a good chance that you will earn this achievement without even trying. If you tend to avoid randomly falling off things, then its time you start! This achievement can be completed by the player falling from any height of at least 65 yards without getting squished like a pancake. Some excellent places to complete this achievement include the Lumbermill in Arathi Basin, the 2nd tier of Wyrmrest Temple in Dragonblight, or the Scryer’s Tier in Shattrath. Bring along some a Heavy Frostweave Bandage or an Embersilk Bandage to use immediately after and you may also gain the Ultimate Triage achievement to make this a simple double whammy!


Equip a tabard.

Possibly the easiest achievement in game the player simply cannot fail. All you need to do is equip a tabard and I mean ANY tabard whether it be guild, PvP, or faction based. Do this and you will complete this achievement for an easy 10 points in the achievement bank. A must complete for every player.

Pest Control

Slay the following pests.

This achievement is much like the To All The Squirrels I’ve Loved Before achievement found above except instead of loving these critters you get to destroy them in a single stroke of awesomeness. That’s right…you will be traveling all over the wide world (of Warcraft) to take out the pesky critters listed below:

Adder Squirrel
Crystal Spider Devouring Maggot
Fire Beetle Fjord Rat
Gold Beetle Larva
Maggot Moccasin
Mouse Rat
Roach Scorpion
Snake Spider
Underbelly Rat Zul'Drak Rat

Kill all the pests on the list to complete this achievement and know that you have done the world a favor.

A Simple Re-Quest

Complete a daily quest every day for five consecutive days.

World of Warcraft is full of daily quests and since you will likely be completing quite a few of them during your stay in Azeroth why not gain an achievement while your at it. This achievement requires the player to do one simple thing; complete the same daily quest for five days in a row. Miss a day and you must start over, however, the biggest challenge to completing this achievement will not be the execution, but will come in the form of some bugs on Blizzard’s part in which the counter for the achievement randomly resets. Manage to get lucky with this bug and you will have yet another easy achievement under your belt.

Got My Mind On My Money

Loot 100 Gold.

…and my money on my mind…ok so this isn’t a famous rap song (although you could play it while attempting to complete it), but it is an easy achievement! A multi-tiered achievement players will first be required to loot 100 gold from just about anything in game. Mobs, boxes, bags, you name it and the gold you get from it counts! Sadly any money you collected before Patch 3.0.2 does not count toward this achievement. Once you have collected 100 gold the amount of gold to complete each subsequent achievement will go steadily higher in the amounts of: 1,000, 5,000, 10,000, 25,000, 50,000, and finally 100,000. While it may take a bit longer to complete each tier this achievement never gets harder in application the player need only to continue looting gold and all this achievement will belong to them.

My Sack is "Gigantique"

Equip Haris Pilton's "Gigantique" Bag.

Ever wish there was an achievement where you could just buy an item, equip it, and BAM! Achievement completed? Well all your dreams will have come true with this achievement. Simply head on over to socialite Haris Pilton who can be found in World’s End Tavern in Shattrath City and spend 10 gold on her amazingly awesome “Gigantique” bag. Equip the 22 slot epic quality bag to complete the achievement with almost no work involved.

It's Happy Hour Somewhere

Drink 25 different types of beverages.

For this achievement the player simply has to travel the world and seek out 25 different drinks. Simply head to the nearest town and check out the various vendors there, especially the ones with Innkeeper, Bartender, and Food and Drink displayed above their heads. Purchase their wears and drink away. If your looking for a more efficient way to complete this achievement you may want to make your first visit to a Goblin named Boots who resides just outside Area 51 in Netherstorm and then to a kindly Mage who is willing to make you every type of water in their extensive arsenal. Do this and you will be done in no time…just be sure there is a potty nearby.

World Explorer

Explore Eastern Kingdoms, Kalimdor, Outlands, and Northrend.

Our final simple achievement will not only give you some extra achievement points but will also grant you a shiny new title along the way. To complete this achievement you must explore all the zones in Eastern Kingdoms, Kalimdor, Outland, Northrend, and the newly added Cataclysm zones. The hardest part of this achievement will be exploring the zones and major cities of the opposing faction. However, if you wait till late at night or early in the morning you will find that there will be less enemy players readily available to kill you while you do your exploring. If you can’t manage to explore during this times, the use of stealth, or just unfaltering determination will work just as well. Either way, this is a simple achievement that you shouldn’t miss out on.
