Note; This post is about achievement points/ranks and will be irrelevant to anyone who does not care about them.
Currently, players get rewards for obtained achievement points to a maximum of 60,000. With the daily/monthly AP cap at 15,000 and the #1 ranked player of the EUR servers (Eil.9385) at 38,246, and the 50% percentile at just around 300, this is still very far away.
For myself: I consider myself to be an AP hunter and I reached the 25,000 mark this week. Quite a big number but nowhere near the 60,000. Especially when you consider that I will be reaching the 15,000 AP cap this year and that the next 25,000 will be much, much more difficult without the dailies. Considering that it took me around 4000 hours to obtain a bit over 10,000 real, non daily AP I see the 60,000 mark as a near impossible goal, even when you consider future expansions with future AP rewards.
