This only works in US
Before anyone gets too excited, it is still possible to get this on a level 80 with Ulduar iLevel Gear. The Title is also account wide, so it is more likely that they killed it on an 80 Alt.
Still. They removed http://www.wowhead.com/achievement=4080 (Same idea as heard) but didn't remove this. It could count as a exploit that we're able to still get it.
>Using Cata Flasks = +300 main stat, more than like 5 pieces of gear at level 80.
>Using Cata pots twice in a fight = +2000 main stat for 25 seconds. Which is a ridiculous amount for a level 80.
>Add on that Herald was a joke of a fight as it was, the hardest part was farming gear.
>Add on also that you don't have a 1 hour time limit to attempt it in anymore.
As for those saying 6 seconds is tough, it might be like 7-8 seconds, but a group with 10 90s all DPS spec popping CDs with lust should make it easy, my mage did like 100k damage, and this H Pally did the same and the group my mage was in still got it. (Level 85 mage).
You can't see it on my mage's armory because I did it as a level 80 during Cata, which for reference, was super easy.

Although on servers that haven't got it, you can still get Grand Crusader title without the attempt system.
Hakushi - Main Shaman - 568 Ele 8/8 HM DS (5% Nerf Spine/Madness), 7/7 HM FL, 6/6 HM MV, 6/6 HM HoF, 4/4 HM ToES, 13/13 HM ToT, 12/14 HM SoO (Guild is 14/14 HM)
Oxyra - Semi-Main DK - 558 Blood 6/6 HM MV, 6/6 HM HoF, 4/4 HM ToES, 13/13 HM ToT, 12/14 Normal SoO
Alt runs with DK. US *16th* 25man guild with Shaman.
New 10man raids as side raids viable in WoD?
Also, listing a series of in-game features as an excuse to exploit an achievement doesn't denounce the fact that this is exactly that, exploiting.
I hope it is removed from your account.
There are videos on Twinkinfo.com of 3 level 80's doing Herald, if they were to strip people from this achievement, it should be right back to the pre-Cata patch in late WotLK. I got it then (3.0) and I don't feel like it was earned, anyone who got it since then are kidding themselves saying they earned it, rofl.

If you think Blizzard should've removed it years ago, take that up with them. That isn't the matter here.
haha that's an amazing flaw in the achievement system ^^
I wonder if this is something that's easely fixed
The achievement displays the same way on my hunter main in armory, and I got the achievement "legitimately" about a week and a half ago on my 80 rogue. Does anyone have any actual meaningful proof of this working?
Just attempted it, and it did not work in the US
