    Achievement Tracker - Make it easier to obtain achievements

    Anyone know if there is a website, or an app that will plug into your character achievements through blizzard's API and kind of give you a dashboard of what achievements you completed and which ones are easiest to hardest to obtain / get done?

    Imagine like you have achievements in 3 buckets:

    • Easiest to obtain - Requires 10 minutes to xyz minutes to achieve.
    • Requires more effort - Requires a bit more of a time investment, but isn't hard to obtain.
    • Hardest to obtain - Requires other players, group play, hard raid play, large time investment. (maybe this bucket could be broken out into categories like, requires group play, requires long time investment etc)

    And then when you look at the achievements in each bucket, it would briefly describe how to most easily go get the achievement.

    Is there anything like that out there?

    Sounds like near impossible to do, each person has his own amount of time that it takes to complete an achievement.
    Also classes play a big role in some achievements, Not saying it's impossible but it will be tricky.

    most of them are straight forward achies though.

    Got 31k myself, they just take time.

    Not exactly what you're asking for as far as the difficulty stuff goes, but simplearmory.com lays out your achievements in a categorized fashion with tooltips and links to wowhead for each one. Check it out if you haven't already

    If you have your account synced to Wowhead there's an achievement tracker that shows how close you are to new achievements. For instance, it'll say "91% done" and show you what you have left. And you can sort by each category. Not exactly what you're looking for, but pretty close.
    You think you don't, but you do

    Nothing exactly like that exists at the moment, and there's too little interest now for it to be made I'm afraid.

    You can sort your achievements per rarity on dataforazeroth

    This hardly addresses OP's needs, because how many people have X achievement has nothing to do with how short or long it is. Some achievements might be easy, but long. Some might come naturally as you are playing a specific patch, but for people who return years after it will be old content that is not relevant to their character progression. Imagine grinding Korthia based achievements in 3 years for example - now everyone does it to gear up and a lot of these achievements come naturally through that.

    Also, WoW simply has less players these days than it used to, so all of the newer collectibles/achievements that were released in the recent years are naturally owned by less people. For example, Yellow Marsh Hopper mount is only owned by 0,5% of the population and that's just a vendor mount that you buy for 333k. Meanwhile, Big Love Rocket is owned by 1,9% people, and that is objectively one of the rarest mounts in the game. Yet, it is owned by multiple times more people than the frog that you can just buy with money off of a vendor. Same for achievements: On The Offensive and Breaking the Chains are currently one of the rarest achievements owned by players. Is it because they are incredibly hard? No, because they are new.
