    Default Completionist recognition

    We can see who the TRs are because they have a symbol book-ending their name. I think it would be a good idea to give completionists a different symbol so everyone can see who they are and thus rewarding them for their efforts. Double and triple completionists could have different symbols.

    I have no toons who are currently completionist but I am working towards it (a long-term project that I don't expect to be finished by the end of the year).

    I don't know how this would work with the Epic TRs that are due next week but I'm sure something could be worked out.

    Thoughts please.

    Epic TRs aren't next week. Update 20 at the earliest.

    That's easy to tell, they're usually the people who aren't any good at end-game.

    You can make up for that by being good at piking.

    I don't think Completionists need any extra "recognition". If you do it, do it for your own sense of...well...completeness You already get the feat, so its not like you don't get anything meaningful for your effort. I think all it would lead to is elitism, or at best, annoying arrogance.

    /unsigned for enabling any e-peening.

    Iconics Tutorial starts you out as a soulstone, and you have to get an NPC to carry you through the quest. Then once you rez, monsters attack and you have to demand heals from the cleric NPC until all the other NPCs in your party get wiped.

    I highly doubt this would happen on most cases. None of the many completionists I know act this way at all.
    In fact most of them never even bring it up.

    Completionists deserve some more recognition than just word of mouth, and a feat they have to actually take to benefit from, and build around.
    Way back when I was a noob and I saw people with "wings" by their names I wanted to know more about it; Why did only some people have wings? How can I get wings? W-T-F(stupid censorship)is TRing?! Back then it was special to have wings. You had to earn them by actually playing a TR, and you knew anyone who had wings had to slog through extra lives. Now with Otto's and Bigby's It's hardly special anymore.
    I think it would at the least draw attention to the fact that this is something you can strive for and work towards in game.

    But being a completionist still is something special, even if the feat isn't all that spectacular, and I feel these people should have some recognition. I don't think a silly little symbol next to their name would be detrimental to the game in any way.

    Von5 is a perfect spot to practice, enter the raid and sit at the center till it's time to head to the final boss, if you can pike there you can pike anywhere. =P

    Turbine should definitely make completionist easy to find. Maybe they could have confetti always falling over them in quests or having a spotlight on them at all times in the quests.

    This might make some people want to be a “cool kid” and Turbine would sell Otto’s boxes like hot cakes.

    or better yet . . . make completionist actually worth the pursuit.

    Maybe a nice little pink ribbon that sits over the right shoulder. That would be special

    Blerg. I hate my TR wings. If I also got some sort of Completionist Aura I'd probably make Aggrim a mule.

    Real Completionists don't stone, man.

    Stones are for gimps, man.

    Course, back when I was on my first completionist, we didn't have stones. We lived for three months in a brown paper bag in a septic tank. We used to have to get up at six o'clock in the morning, clean the bag, eat a crust of stale bread, go to work down mill for fourteen hours a day week in-week out. When we got home, out Dad would thrash us to sleep with his belt!

    We couldn't afford snow or hills when I was a lad! We used to have to get out of the lake at three o'clock in the morning, clean the lake, eat a handful of hot gravel, go to work at the mill every day for tuppence a month, come home, and Dad would beat us around the head and neck with a broken bottle, if we were LUCKY!
