Proposal
Make badges recorded at the account level, therefore make all badge progress the same on all characters of the account
Motivation
Having to switch from character to character to figure out badge progression
Justification
Simplify game play
This proposal is for making badges account based versus the current character based. Since multiple accounts are allowed this just makes sense to allow the badges to apply at the account.

Multiple accounts are not allowed.
In game achievements should be based per character as many badges also have item rewards tied to them.

Unfortunately a change like this is both technically complex from an implementation standpoint and alters the framework of how achievements are credited and collection awards given. I’m also not sure it makes sense. Credit your other character and give them the reward for something you do on a different one? Why?

Lord Korto, an account has 2 characters currently (soon three)

Aconite, why force duplication of badges. Whatever toon completes it receives the reward. Allows you to see progress at an account level. This has been done with other games. Just bubble up the record keeping to the actual account, not character. It was just a thought.

Ah ok, I was assuming ‘account’ meant the user account, not the characters in the account. No bother

What you'd be doing in a lot of cases is taking rewards that can be earned by each character and only allow one per account with this logic. I don't know why anyone would be in favor of that.

Indeed. If we were to entertain earning a badge for your entire account, we would not give the reward to every character.

Could it possible, be just the slayer portion. How in their right mind would want to repeat it.
