ANY accomplishment achieved while having kids is a big accomplishment in itself. While other people level cap in a week or less, it can take me months and months.

Getting my epic swords on my ranger in everquest. Also getting my last coldain prayer shawl was pretty exciting. Both done with the help of a lot of great friends.

DAOC-Pellinor server:  Bringing down the first dragon of the server (Hibernia side)

 

Mythic just added dragons and it was all the rage!  Server pride, realm pride, you name it, it was all in play and on the line!  

 

We kept hearing how some EU server slayed the first dragon of the game (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8R_Cng7fvrg) and how those darn Albs and Mids on our server kept attempting to kill theirs before us.  

I remember how days of collective zerg wiping ensued as we would try to fight our way to the dragon's lair while being led by different small groups of devoted players.  This was then followed by days of massive wipes at the dragon and we are talking about groups of 150+ people easy and hrs per run.  It's like the server was in 24/7 raiding mode with different "zerg shifts".  Those were the days!!

 

And then came this one day, this one run that started just like any other run and yet it was gonna be it. This was going to be the run where Cuuldurach The Glimmer King is brought down.

Now I had no idea of that, I started on that run like on any other with my usual eagerness and sense of prideful purpose as a small cog in a great machinery that was our Hib Awesomeness.  Being there as the dragon falls before Albs and Mids can take down theirs was the Uber moment that I was hoping for but little did I know that I was gonna get much more!!

 

Indeed, it just happened that not only the dragon went down but that I also landed the killing blow with my ranger.  It was no skill of my own what-so-ever but what a crazy overkill in wow factor to see your name pasted in the general information for such an unexpected kill spam.   

Ah... the memories... DAOC... /sniff

I have a few, but probably my most momentous would be:

 

1.  Killing Absolute Virtue in FFXI...if you don't know what that is, don't even look it up, it'll give you nightmares not even trying lol.

2. In Vanilla WoW, Getting Sulfuras, the Hand of Ragnaros, back when it was an actual challenge.

3. First relic keep siege in DAoC...so many people we crashed the server XD

To get it , you needed to pass the way from Hobitton to Rivendell transformed into a chicken with 1 hp. If you get aggro and die, you need to do this again. And you can also not communicate with nobody except with chicken sounds.

It took me many tries of this journey that takes almost 3 hours, but on the end i managed to reach Rivendell as a chicken thanks to few chicken loving players that protected me from trolls and similar enemies.

But on the end, my character Archibold "The Rooster" was the only one on the server that had such cloak :)



That is awesome! Well done :)

I was one of the rare ones to have that cloak on Laurelin too. It is indeed an "achievement" of patience and perseverance. It was what you could call "hard", too, all about timing the few chicken skill when you climb up that ledge just after the Bruinen.

Must be when I created the Iron Gloves Mercenary Company, a roleplaying guild fielding some 30 soldiers at its height, in UO Europa Shard, in about 2000 (give or take a year or two).

30 active person RP guild was nothing to sneeze at back then, mind you :)

The famous cloak on my Loremaster:

PS: I did it without any player help, just using the chicken skills.

It was pure luck, but my darkmoon card (twisting nether) procced three times in a row when I was ganked in WOW with my mage.  I finally killed the guy after he killed me for the 4th time...I just kept coming back and blasting him when he stopped to rest!

 

...In retrospect, I was pretty horrible at that game.

haha....I guess my best accomplishment in an mmo was when me and a friend took down a special dragon that shouldnt be taken down by 2 people......getting caught by a guild doing it.....GMs porting in demanding the item drops (even though they where already transferred to alts).........and then getting dced after GM said trade or else. Never allowed to log in game again, mothers last name given a life time ban from subscribing to the certain game makers games "period." 

Server rollback was implemented shortly there after.

 

Looking back it was so stupid of my friend and I but we where young and dumb........still get a laugh thinking of all the trouble we got into haha. 

Now that I think of it.........I didnt really accomplish anything but getting banned from a good game lol.

I guess the workers who tighten the same screw all day long on car assembly lines are the greatest achievers ever then, and at least they get paid for it.

Oh the melodrama... now players are "giving up their life" for video games.

If you think it's just melodrama, you haven't played back in "vanilla WoW". Getting the rank 14 title in PvP back then definitely required you to give up your life. You missed one day, the other "no life" would distance you with no chance for you to catch up.

Rank 14 back then was only reachable by either teenagers during school holidays (or skipping school) or unemployed people. exactly what "giving up your life for a video game" means. You NEEDED to play 12+ hours a day. And there was no player skill involved either, it was just pure repetitive mindless farming.

We had one guy in my back then guild who did it. He was online all the time. During the week, the week end, anytime you logged in, he was in a battleground, be it at noon, midnight, 3am. Anything less and he would have failed.

Also keep in mind that there were only 3 BGs back then in WoW: AV, WSG and AB. So you basically repeated those three for weeks and weeks, for 12+ hours a day, again, and again. Sorry, but I don't admire such people, I'm appalled by their stupidity.

That is unhealthy gaming.

Seriously, what idiot plays video games to feel like they accomplished something?  It's entertainment.  It's a way to waste time. That's all.  If this is the biggest accomplishment in your life, something is seriously wrong.

You are not alone in that feeling.  It is a time sink and hopefully a fun one!

That's really all that it is, some people feel that putting so much time and effort into a game somehow gives it meaning.  It's about as worthwhile as competitive Monopoly.

It is a trap very easy to fall into. Games are designed to give the illusion of achievement, and particularly when you sink time into it, you see progress.

My greatest accomplishment is successfully running a wonderful guild in WoW.  I seemed to have a knack for bringing together enough like-minded folks to ensure a good atmosphere and my style of leadership was firm but fair (I hope).
