An achievement system similar to the one used in Lord of the Rings Online may become part of World of Warcraft, adding achievements for PvP, exploration, questing and more.
The achievement system can be accessed by typing in '/achievement' into the Wrath of the Lich King Alpha test, according to blogDeath Knight (opens in new tab)(check out the screens on his site).
The images seemingly reveal that players will gain achievement points for doing a variety of tasks that range from completing 2000 quests to exploring the whole of Azeroth.
It's currently not known what rewards these achievements will bring, nor if players will retroactively receive the achievements for things they've already done.
NDAs are still active for the Alpha, so don't expect any confirmation from Blizzard anytime soon.
