I don't mind grinding for a weapon regardless if its good or not. its part of the game and all of us will see things differently so I understand that we will all have different views but when engineering this quest, it is almost an exercise in perseverance rather than skill and challenge. I do like that it is not restricted to Comp PVP achievements as some folks just will never be able to take on the best of the best. If I can offer any constructive critisism it would be to vary the quest steps to different types of achievements and possibly look at including retroactive achievements.
