    Nope. Only mounts got removed at the start of T8. The achievements/titles remained till the very end of Wrath. Then you could just lolfaceroll them with smaller group (less risk of failure) fully decked in ICC gear.

    Sure you could claim "I only consider the original ones with the mount", but exactly the same can be said about Herald of the Titans, Scarab Lord, Hand of A'dal, Champion of the Naaru, and many other.

    The Argent Defender, on the other hand, is an example of a truly prestigious title without any conditions. You could not cheat it or make significantly easier by any way at any point of the expansion, and it got removed very quickly. And it was hard.

    You're right, doh. "Everyone" just stopped caring because the mounts got removed.

    I have " the Undying" and never really used it, and tbh i don't remember it being particularly difficult to get. Naxx was a pretty easy raid after all.

    titles mean more to me if i earned them when they were current content.

    I got starcaller when it was current, as a balance druid that title meant alot to me.
    Bane of the Fallen King i wore with pride for ages...

    Jenkins or Death's Demise

    - The current tier's top end raid title
    - Gladiator titles
    - Server first kill titles

    Overall, I'd go with Scarab Lord.

    Conqueror, Gladiator, Champion, Hand of A'dal, Storm's End.

    The Immortal ... since everyone who has it experienced some horrors along the way!! (and it sounds cool!)

    I don't consider all the grindy ones prestigious even if they are rare. Grinding is not hard or impressive, period.
    DD wasn't hard to get on a lot of servers, too. Many, many people obtained it long after ICC was released.
    Very challenging, indeed.

    Champion.

    The only regret I have after switching regions, is this lost achievement

    a lot rarer? it's very, very rare that anyone else would complete their quest within the time window after the first person obtains Scarab Lord, so it's realistic to say it's practically one person per server. also, the title was available very early in the games life cycle, and although new realms have affected that fact, it still remains true that people playing in 2006 are way less likely to be playing WoW now than more recent subscribers, so I honestly can't agree that there are 'a lot rarer' titles than Scarab Lord.
    I think i can give up choose talent in this level?
    because if i am not choose this level。 i can have 20% blood more than choosen..
    GREAT BLZ.

    If I remember right when i started playing ('08) there were some new server's that came up and you could transfer to the new server, finish up your scarab lord quest line (which you had obviously started already) and transfer back to your old realm after a couple days with the Scarab lord title.

    You still see a LOT less Scarab Lords running around today than people with "Death's Demise", "The Undying", "Conqueror of Ulduar" etc.

    Well this is sort of debatable. It's prestigious, sure, but not many people even had the chance to get it in the first place, only people who played in Vanilla AND had a decent guild AND were chosen to get the quest, have it. Honestly, I just go like "meh" whenever I see someone riding on the scarab mount or has the Scarab Lord title.

    OT: From a PvE aspect, the most prestigious title(s) for me would be Realm's Firsts such as Death's Demise, Grand Crusader, Celestial Defender because those were the ones that showed true skill (perhaps not Death's Demise as it was repeatable whereas the other 2 weren't but it was still really hard)...Too bad they removed such titles and the feats of strength associated with them; which do pop up in chat if you get them but you don't get them for some reason. They really made the server first race very competitive IMO.

    Most prestigious I have would be Grand Crusader as it's the only one of those 3 I have. Firelord and Dragonslayer were also pretty beast for a while and I wore them proudly.

    Mine, Storm's End world 2, 10 man Grp(obviously doesnt show it was that fast) And some realm firsts.
    Overall: Realm First titles from Wotlk, Argent defender, Gladiators, Scarab Lord and attunementtitles from TBC.
    Frostwhisper EU - Hulkovius Elemental Shaman 14/14 HC. Armory

    Sylvanas EU - Hulkoviusx Sub/Combat Rogue 11/14 HC Armory
