. Not my favorite Q+A by far, as many of the questions have really already been answered (even by recent 4.1 changes) but it should definitely interest all of the achievers out there!
Some of the topics of the questions they were asked include:
Achievement points as a currency (still no, never, stop asking)
More exciting and "crazy" achievements
Mount rewards from achievements

Patch 4.1 Dungeon Finder Call to Arms - Blizzard Clarification
2011/04/08 at 8:41 AM
Blizzard just posted some clarification regarding the recently announced
Dungeon Finder Call to Arms feature
. With this upcoming change, highly demanded roles such as tanks and healers would receive special rewards after completing a dungeon through the system. Apparently Blizzard has listened to player feedback and plans to make the reward----be BoA, allowing players to send such bags to their mains from their alts and vice versa.
We’ve been following discussions and reading feedback on the Dungeon Finder Call to Arms feature, and appreciate everyone’s opinions on the topic. We wanted to share a few items though that supplement the recent announcement:
The additional reward for completing the Dungeon Finder Call to Arms (called the Satchel of Exotic Mysteries) will be Bind on Account; able to be freely sent to other characters on your account once you receive it.
An error existed in the announcement regarding flasks and potions being picked based on your spec. This is not the case. If someone earns a Satche
Patch 4.1 Dungeon Finder: Call to Arms - Goodie Bags From Heroics!
2011/04/06 at 8:32 PM
Blizzard has just released
details about the latest changes to the Dungeon Finder coming in Patch 4.1! The Dungeon Finder will now detect which roles are in demand (*cough*tanks and healers*cough*) based on queue times. When certain queue times have been reached, a Call to Arms will go out for the desired role and players who queue and successfully complete a dungeon as that role will be rewarded with a special goodie bag (each time)! This goodie bag can contain:
Non-Combat Pet (Including cross faction pets!)
Rare Mounts (Including rare dungeon drop mounts!)
So what do you think? Will this help the Dungeon Finder queue problems? Will this cause more players to utilize dual specs to play their other roles and help out the queue timers? Or will we just end up with healers who can't heal (or won't heal) and tanks who don't have tanking gear? What do you think?
In patch 4.1 we'll be introducing
Dungeon Finder: Call to Arms
, a new system intended to lower queue times. Call to Arms will automatically detect which class role is curr
