Template arguments

Name Description
|name= Achievement name as it appears in-game.
|icon= Achievement icon; in lower case, omitting File: and extension.
|description= Achievement description e.g. "Complete 4000 quests."
Additional information
|points= Achievement points earned by completing; omit for feats of strength.
|criteria= Achievement criteria, if distinct from description; use a plain wiki list.
|criteria2= Second column of achievement criteria; use a plain wiki list.
|req= Number of criteria required to be completed to earn the achievement, if not all are required.
|reward= Additional achievement rewards, e.g. titles or items.
|category= Achievement category this achievement is in
|faction= Faction this achievement is limited to (Horde/Alliance); omit if available to both factions.
|account= Include if progress towards this achievement is account-wide.
|meta= Include if achievement can only be earned by completing the criteria achievements listed.
Formatting switches
|narrow= If specified, uses the default single-column tooltip width even when |criteria2= is specified.
|max-width= Max width of the achievement tooltip, e.g. "35em"

It is possible to ignore the |criteria2= parameter and use the {{col-begin}}, {{col-X}}, {{col-end}} templates to format the criteria list. In this case, it might be necessary to modify tooltip width using |max-width=.

Achievements with a long description, but two relatively narrow criteria columns can benefit from including |narrow=, which will reduce the tooltip width somewhat.
