Now that the xpac is in beta, what an awesome thing to add: achievements! I haven't gotten any of the really hard achievements yet, just most of the "no life" ones :P. I want to compare with others :).

Bug alert: a couple achievements I know I have don't show up. In particular, I know my 89 Warrior and my 23 Priest have both had their freedom granted.

I suspect the problem with that is the achievement triggers upon the actual event of having your freedom granted, rather than simply on whether or not a character has already been marked as such.

No, because I have the achievements for everything up to and including Din's Legend, and the Rogue- and Wizard-specific Granted Freedom achievements, just not Warrior and Priest.

You might need to load those characters before they will trigger some of the achievements.

Thanks Shadow, anyway a minor cosmetic issue to work on. Here's the updated screenshot:

Ok, dumb question. What are achievements and how do they work? Did DW come with a manual that I missed?

There is a button on the right side of the main menu when you launch the game to see your achievements.

I saw the button.

But what are they? How do you get them? How do they work?

Mouse over each to read what it's for.

Thanks. I get it now. I was just having a senior moment. It happens.

Oh yeah, a legit Invasion Mode achievement! Thanks to Abomination5 and Icecube for a combined victory :).

Finally got this achievement today (with the help of borrowed leggings from NoBear, thanks again).

I was going for this one so I would have an easier time finding Fryse's Blue Ring. So I kept doing level 26 towns until I found one with a Jeweler ; I was planning to farm monsters and check the stock every couple minutes. Unfortunately, I did not know that the level of shop items is based on your char's level and not the town level, so everything was 72+. I did find several Elite, Set and an Artifact in that shop. Wonder if Magic Find changes shop stock as well.

A good way to get those rings is make a character of the appropriate level and then start worlds over and over again until the vendors have the ring.

Unfortunately, you lose that achievement every time you save and exit with that same character and have less than 500% MF. But now we know that you got the achievement :).

You can keep those legs until I want to farm stuff myself, and by then I will probably have found new MF legs.

So did you find the ring yet? Abom's advice is good. If you want I could power level a character just to around 26 so you can try town-hopping and checking vendors. Or you could make a forum post requesting a trade, if you have another good item you'd be willing to trade for. Some people are apparently drowning in Fryse's rings.
