The Bird of Hermes Is My Name, Eating My Wings To Make Me Tame.
Bloodthirsty is no longer impressive IMO since a lot of people spent days doing AV/IoC HK premades to get those titles, back when Preform AV Enabler was a thing.
I usually find titles that were removed the most prestigious - it shows that you've been around a while. I've been sporting my Champion of Ulduar for a while now, even though it was fairly easy to get it back in the day (because the achievement was completable over multiple lockouts, unlike Immortal/Undying). I love Immortal/Undying but I don't like them on my main.
I dont feel like anything ingame is really "prestigious". I can see a lot of positive emotion being connected to titles like Scarab Lord or Undying and the like.
For all of the typical showing-off titles, all i see is "Virginlord XYZ" when i read them (and god, what little i have seen on twitch didn't help fight that prejudice)
Undying and similar ones sound like a group achievement and fun times to me
The bloodthirsty definetly is prestigious, its not really hard to get but it surely takes forever to do.
My personal best would be one of the naxx/ulduar survival titles (immortal,undying...)
All my Realm First! Stuff. But the best is Celestial Defender.
The Immortal. The content wasn't hard but the achievement was at one point you managed to get 25 people together that didn't go full retard for one run.
I just realized it was taken out of the meta achievement. Weird, guess they turned it into a FoS at one point, so now i have my meta, but not the mount ^^
Sooooo many happy memories connected to this meta, and Immortal (or whatever the 10 man version was) specifically. Best raiding memories for me. I was never super serious with raiding, so seeing the outrageously creative ways people would find to end themselves made me beyond happy. Wow, thanks for reminding me of that, haha
Immortal horror stories are the best.
Having someone die to a voidzone on Kel'thuzad, or to a Decimate on Gluth, or messing up polarities on Thaddius.... I knew of a raid that lost Immortal because someone who was inside the raid, but outside (on g6) died while the main raid team was killing Patchwerk.
Of the titles that I'll have I am most proud of my Champion of Ulduar. It took blood, sweat and a great many curses and tears to complete.
Overall, it's Scarab Lord. No competition for that one, even though a minority managed to cheese their way to one.
Most prestigious: The Light of Dawn back in ICC days.
It's my dr. title.
As sad as it may be, Destroyer's End.
Funny how i still have a name in my head for all the mechanics you mentioned xD
