And today the subject of our article will be the achievement addons review.
This is probably the most popular addon. It helps with the NPC search and alert when the mob gets into the working range of the modification. Just imagine how much easier it will be to get the http://www.wowhead.com/achievement=2257 achievement, for example. If you install _NPCScan you will not need to look closely at every mob at their respawn points. You may just fly over this territory and the addon will scan presenting NPCs on its own.

This addon helps to track achievements connected with the dungeons and raids and with the killing of bosses. In the instances this addon shows what you need to do to get one or another achievement.
