Someone "Beat" World of Warcraft!

You read that title correctly, someone has actually beaten World of Warcraft, he has officially done every single quest and achievement in World of Warcraft, now normally I resist the urge when it comes to posting about World of Warcraft (Because anything that mentions WoW get's instapopular) but really that's incredible, who the hell has enough time to do everything in that game?.  Pay close attention to the Player vs. Player achievements in the screenshot below, he hasn't officially unlocked all the achievements in the game but because he has 165 of 164 he technically has completed 986 of 986 achievements.

Anyway's the full new's story is below, 
 

 A Taiwanese man has been named as the first player to 'finish' World of Warcraft.

'Little Gray', as his character's known, is the first to successfully complete all of the MMO's 986 achievements listed in the armory, reports MMO Champion.

To reach the milestone the Taiwanese power-player killed 390,895 creatures, accumulated 7,255,538,878 points of damage, completed 5,906 quests (that's 14.62 quests per day, apparently), raided 405 dungeons and hugged 11 players.

The achievement hasn't arrived without some controversy though; WoW-heads point out that technically he's still missing one illusive, event-tied achievement (called "BB King"), but he's managed to dodge it via a glitch awarding one extra, false achievement point.

We say he's not a man until he tracks down and gets that last achievement legitimately

Ummm good for him I guess....

Posted by EvilTwin

That's not easy to do.  I wonder if he has all of the feats of strength though?  Some of them aren't attainable any more.

Disgusting.

He has 40/40 on his Armory Link which apparently wasn't working, I've added it to the bottom of the article if you want to see for yourself :P.

I had to put the SP reference in here.

This is already posted in the WoW forums, which is where this probably should have went =P 
 
It was bound to happen eventually I guess.. but its so sad. I wonder how that dude who has 35 WoW accounts and raids by himself is doing...

My bad, I wasn't aware it was already posted about, mostly because I tend to stay away from the World of Warcraft forums, I suppose they're talking about how awesome and cool he is, while this topic seems to be more about flaming him and expressing our opinions about his lifestyle.

Some of those achievements are insane, I mean top .5% PVP team!?

Nah, feats only show up if you attain them.  I've checked it out and I can confirm he doesn't have them all.  It's not even possible to get them all on one character anyways, so I guess I can't really begrudge him that.

Bah, well that's what I get for not playing the game, I figured the colors changed for the Feats of Strength when they where unlocked, guess not though. Besides he has to have some sort of life, if he had all of those feats of strength I'm sure the WoW server that was responsible for storing his characters data would explode.

I wonder if it has any replay value

Anyone notice how he had Tauren Druid? 
 
Taurens ftw

Posted by Willy105

That's it! Someone finished the game!
 
Time to make a sequel!

Posted by Grilledcheez

That's insane and yet somehow awesome

Oh mah stars.

Is this him?
Posted by Out_On_Bail

Impressive.  I guess it was only a matter of time. Good for him, I'm sure his mother is proud.

Yeah, but he would've had to max out every class in order to do all the quests and achievements. However, Taurens are arguably the coolest race.,

Which is why he didn't do every quest.  Not possible.  He may have done all of the ones available to him, but not all.

Holy shit, what a loser.

Posted by MeierTheRed

Maybe now he can actually do other things, like physically go to the toilet and not in a plastic jug under the table. Maybe even venture out side... yeah know crazy talk.

Posted by Symphony

That's all well and good but unless he proposes to an NPC in WoW and marries her/him, he hasn't truly finished the game and earned his 15 minutes of internet fame!

Posted by wefwefasdf

That is crazy. Does he win anything to make up for all that time and money?

Posted by Everyones_A_Critic

I'd hate to be "that guy" and rip on him for "having no life" etc....So I won't. Congrats to him.

Posted by TooWalrus

For the Horde!

Posted by Bigandtasty

I was wondering if someone out there could claim an S-Rank on WoW if they tied their achievements to GB. Now I know.

Posted by Yummylee

Hoooleeee fuck
Posted by VWGTI

That guy is awesome.

Posted by Griddler

He needs to get out more.

Posted by JJWeatherman

I've never played it so I don't have a good grasp on how hard this must be. But considering there are millions and millions of users and this guy is the only one to ever do this, I'm guessing its tough.

Posted by DarkShaper

Holy crap, that's impressive and a little sad at the same time.

Blizzard will have a ceremony for him, and he'll die of a massive coronary walking up the concert stairs to accept his medal.
Posted by Black_Rose

Man, that is sad.

Errr.. "well done", I guess.

I figured he'd be going to Disney World.

Haha, I logged into GiantBomb, "Mail (25)", you guys are insane :P.

Why is it always oriental people that achieve such tasks? I guess when they have a lot of free time, they have a lot of free time.

Posted by basal1sk

ha when cataclysm comes out he would have completed about 40% of the game
