Been a fun run guys, but the game's officially moved into the "Milk the Playerbase" phase. And I for one don't intend to stick around as the cost of expansions go up, content in them goes down, and raids become further and further apart.

I don't see the big issue here. You're up in arms about something you never had and never knew you were going to have until more recent times, now you're pissed off because it turns out you might not get it, even though nobody ever actually said you were getting it anyway?

I did not achieved the title, just for one day.... one of the worsts days playing wow
Ok, now im sad... and crying
If you got the Hand of A'dal title don't worry about it. If you worry about someone else getting it then you are showing you have a ego and it's damaged somehow that someone else got it to. Seriously let go of your pride, it's good to be proud of something but too much pride just make you egotistical.
Hand of Adal isn't tied to an achievement. That is why you wont get it on any alts. You only get a FoS if you got the title before they took it out.
I'm paying my monthly fee just like everyone else so i also wan't to be able to get the title and see ALL the content!
See what i did there?
The idea of giving everyone access to a title didn't really take off until after TBC. Prior to this, we only had a handful of PvP and PvE titles. <Champion of the Naaru> and <of the Shattered Sun> are the only titles I can think of that were given to the masses. Everything had to be earned through hard work. I don't think I'd want any of my toons to have <Hand of A'dal> except for my paladin that deserves it.
It took a lot of dedication from a lot of people to power through TBC raiding. Seeing that title on a newly-rolled DK would be a slap in the face. It's just like <Scarab Lord>. That took some real dedication. And, if you weren't the character that banged the gong, I don't think you should be allowed to drop it on a new toon.
Keep them prestigious.
now while I don't care much for the op's attitude towards the "pve content being respectable" or w/e, I will agree that HoA should be account-bound (and I don't even have it). I keep reading "but it'll lose prestige!" no, no it won't. want to know why? because the exact same number of people in the whole world who earned that title, will be using that title. nothing will change other than the fact that you can use it on the character you'd actually prefer. For example, say I did have it, and it was on my mage. But I don't like how mages are looking for MoP and on the ptr I find them verrryyyyy borrriiinnnggg. so much so I give up on him, in order to play say my druid. Have I not earned the right to use Hand of Adal? Did I not earn that title?
Maybe it's because idk just how hard it was to get as I came into the game in wotlk during Ulduar, but still, while the character did earn the title, to me it's moreso the player that earned the title.
Shadow Walk : Significantly increases Stealth effectiveness for 6 sec, but causes Stealth to be nerfed to justify its usage. In addition, it uses old Enveloping Shadows icon and has no sound, animation or spell effect to show that the skill is actually doing something.
Some people really need to read the first post instead of just reacting to the title of the thread. The guy just wants the title he earned to be account wide, nothing more than that.
Hand of A'dal was actually the one reason I was excited to see account wide achievements... Ah well, I'll let it sit on my dusty 70 hunter until the end of days I guess.
I'd like my Monk to have access to my titles that I earned on my older characters, but I'll live if that doesn't happen. I was simply confused with the position Blizzard took on these things. Seeing that Immortal was granted based on an achievement shouldn't I get it on my Monk when the xpack goes live?
Don't blame the casuals for making Warcraft worse. It's the unskilled masses who refuse to improve themselves and Blizzard who has decided to bribe these folks with an endless shower of purples that should draw the ire of both casual and hardcore alike. It was never about "seeing the content" for these people it's always been about the gear and their sense of entitlement.
WHY WAS IT REMOVED AMG!!!! Because after the patches it became very easy. Something that took months to do back in pre-nerf TBC time could now be done in about the space of a hour. Its there for people who worked for it. Same as the old PVP titles.
