The Achievement Hunter – Two Birds in a Bush

The Achievement Hunter is a column highlighting fun or interesting achievements in WoW and tips for completing them.

So you’ve topped out your 4000 JP in preparation for the expansion, finished leveling your professions and decided to ease up on doing dungeons and raids.  What’s a good altoholic to do for the next week until Cataclysm comes out?  If you’re like me, you are rounding out the easy achievements you have been slacking on.  Here’s a couple of easy achievements you can knock out in the same area in short order.  Critter Glitter and Friend or Fowl.  A quick guide to the achievements:

Critter Glitter – Make 10 Critter Bites in advance and head to (69,64) in Howling Fjord which has plenty of turkey critters.  This achievement is also part of the Hail to the Chef meta achievement which rewards the Chef title.

Friend or Fowl – This can be easily done in the same spot as the first achievement, just kill 15 turkeys.  There is plenty of time so don’t panic.

The Achievement Hunter is a column highlighting fun or interesting achievements in WoW and tips for completing them.

One day you are stuffing yourself with turkey, cranberries and pie and the next day the world ends and your city is in ruins.  Holidays wait for no patches and even as the world burns, many of you are still working on the Pilgrim’s Bounty Achievements.  If you are just starting here are links to good guides:

The big change to be aware of is planning travel with the removal of Dalaran’s portals to capital cities.  Even with the travel difficulties, this is still the best chance this coming expansion for you to finish this achievement.  Once everyone leaves Dalaran for Stormwind and Orgimmar, good luck trying to finish Turkey Lurkey.

If you are starting out a new race/class combo character don’t miss the opportunity to do some easy cooking leveling.  Using the recipes from the event you can easily level cooking from 1-350.

The Achievement Hunter – Children’s Week

The Achievement Hunter is a column highlighting fun or interesting achievements in WoW and tips for completing them.

After i wrote my post on Alyx going after the Chef’s Hat achievement, it got me thinking that it might be nice to do a column on achievements I am pursuing, so The Achievement Hunter was born.  I am by no means a hardcore achievement hound like my friend Samandiriel who has both the Winterspring Frostsaber, Loremaster, and the Insane title.  But when there are fun rewards or titles to go for I like trying for them.  Children’s Week is upon us and I am trying to get the meta on all my alts.  No mean feat as I hate PVP and The School of Hard Knocks achievement is going to kick my ass.  More after the break .
