Alot of my vanilla achievements are GONE

Hi! I’m a returning vanilla player, and for a bit of nostalgia I went into my first character created in November 2005. With this one I completed a lot of raids, like Molten Core, Blackwing Lair, Ahn’Qiraj and a lot of others. I also did get some grades in pvp (rank) and non of either the raids or pvp-ranks are tracked on my account! :frowning: Also alot of dungeons and stuff are also missing.

It’s so sad to see all of this data gone, and I wonder if there is a solution for this? Or am I just looking in the wrong place? :slight_smile:

I played WoW/BC/WotLK alot, and completed most of the raids in there.
I’d like those to be in my achievemens in WoW. I got Naxx 15/15 and The Obsidian Sanctum I think. How come I got those but not the other ones? The dates ain’t correct either I think. Did something go wrong when they transfered me to

Thanks for helping out!

This is my first character:
These are my others that’s also missing achievements:

Under Legacy you see at least your rank in PvP (Knight-Champion). I even think you should be able to still use this title.

However, I am pretty sure that more data was simply not “available” when they introduced Achievements, since achievements were introduced later on (end of TBC?). So most of what you did before they got introduced didn’t/doesn’t really show.

Hey there Trailblazer. As Magiola correctly put, achievements were only implemented with patch 3.0.2 on October 2008, so progress obtained before then may not have been trackable.

Back then only specific progress was retroactively added as an achievement, such as the legacy PvP ranks.

Note the dates of retroactively added achievements will match your first login and not when you actually obtained them.

Thanks, both of you! :slight_smile:
This means everyone got the same issue? But I know I did more than Naxx i.e. WotLK, that ain’t there. None of the Classic raids, or BC are there. Is there a way to make them count? Like looking through the account again if some data from back then is still there? Can the support help me out?

You’re saying you played in Wrath. Did you have the achievements then?

You have to Classic and TBC raids etc. again if you want to get achievement for them as they are not retroactively saved (because Achievements didn’t exist until Wrath patch). Some of them are not available due the dungeons or raids being changed/removed (eg. Upper Blackrock Spire, original Scholomance etc).

You have some Wrath achievements so those seem to be properly saved based on what you did during Wrath.
