Achievements
Complete the following achievements to complete For The Children which awards you with the title 'Matron' or 'Patron' depending on your character's gender. For The Children is also required for What a Long Strange Trip It's Been that rewards the Reins of the Violet Proto-Drake, so be sure not to skip out if you're going for the mount!


The only achievement that is not part of the meta is Veteran Nanny.

    I've had all the pets for many years now. They're not hard to get pretty fast when you have a number of alts. Wish they'd add a few new ones eventually.
    I can say I am VERY glad to have gotten the pvp parts of the meta done back when it was much easier to do. I feel sorry for people trying it now.

    I'm still waiting to find out why the Bronze Flight were going to kill Dornaa. This is one of those lore questions that continues to haunt me. Who does she grow up to be? What does she grow up to do? Or NOT do? What did she do that warrants 2 Dragonkin to kill her on sight, AS A CHILD!!!!!!

    Children's Week has gone the longest without any kind of meaningful update. (Adding a toy you can buy for 50 silver in 2015 doesn't count as an update.) Legion even had the perfect opportunity for a lore-friendly new questline, since the Nightborne had children models and we were helping refugees from the city. It's pretty ridiculous. There should be a new child to bring around for every expansion.

    It's also high time that there at least be some small reference or easter egg for the original children finally growing up and how they turned out. Pretty sure the human orphan started out roughly the same age as Anduin, and Anduin is now king. It'd be a nice touch.

    blizzard has had many opportunities to update this event. Pandaria, could have had a pandaren kid, Warlords, could have had a brown skin orc kid or arakoa kid or another draenei kid. Legion, could have had a suramar elf kid or even make an actual tauren youth (that isn't just a shrunk down version of a tauren)

    But no, lets instead hype up an event thats been the same year after year with nothing new to look forward to.
