Will there be a Pacifist Achievement anytime soon?

Achievements
Post Limit:
It is getting popular reaching maximum level without killing Anything.

This deserves my greatest respect. And not only mine! If you follow several other threads where those pacifists posted about their experiences, they get handshakes and hugs left and right. Well deserved!

Shouldn't there be a Pacifist Achievement or some symbol of compliment soon?

Blizzard, you simply have to :) In the name of variety given to players.
How does one gain experience without killing anything?
Through mining and herb. Not sure if skinning reward experience.
Im against and think blizzard too.
Because add achievement to the game which u cant earn by allready exiting char its stupid.

Dont get me wrong , i respect u for doing it, but u must agree then Pacifist lvling its not that hard since herbs and mines get u experience.
Ironman challange is something Hardcore but still it not deserve achievment because u cant earn it by already existing char.

It is not hard? With all respect, every person I came across who did this type of character developing had countless struggles, especially in low-level.

Just the "easiest" examples: Start a new toon for yourself and get into an area of lvl 6-8ish mobs and pick herbs. I dont have to tell you that it's a huge time investment and training in patience to wait in a game for a mob to pass by, just to pick a flower. And not doing this once, doing this until you get your hands on some defensive abilities.

For the record: Doing one level only with a gathering-professions takes around 40-50pickups. The rewarded xp is based on % of your max. Xp for the current level. I do not know if this changes lateron.

And this is not all, because you can spice up the challenge to acquire max. level by not getting killed once! Or how about doing this on a Full-Load PvP-Server?

And for the serious example of how tough this can get: Do one single level, just one, by only picking herbs and you will immediatelly feel how mind-numbing this can get. And to overcome this state and see it however you want to see it... as disciplin-training, as a meditative-training to repeat basicly the same steps over and over again.

Do it! And then come back and share your experience, I am eager to hear your thoughts IF you do :)
Oh and yeah, Blizzard should naturally give the Acm for everybody who has done it before. Not speaking just of myself, speaking for everybody whos has done it before. It would just be fair.

The process can be easily tracked in the statistics of course.

My toon is just level almost level 5 after hours and it's really challenging and fun.

PS: You can also do this without any quests or with quests that do not require killing, etc etc.
It could quite easily be introduced along with the account wide achievements, that way it abolishes the issue with current characters being unable to achieve it.
Just get a SoR (Scroll of Resurrection) and you are already at 80... How hard can it be then..
Sounds like the most boring tedious thing ever.. even beating pirate farming for the insane.

This. Then do it as a druid so you can herb in flying form and you will get to 85 without any problems
