    Exclusive Race/Class Combo Titles

    I had an idea that maybe depending on your race/class combination you could be granted an exclusive title granted from a questline or whatever, it would be fun for customisation and would feel rewarding having it there, also it would cover some of the clamoring for old RTS hero classes that have already been covered

    Human
    Warrior:Knight
    Priest:Archbishop
    Paladin:Lightbringer (since paladin was already a sort of hero title it was hard to think of one, i thought this would be an appropriate cool sounding title and a tribute to uther)
    Hunter: Watchman
    Warlock: Cultist
    Mage: Archmage
    Monk: The Noble Lion/Lioness

    Dwarf
    Warrior: Mountain King
    Priest: Cleric
    Paladin: Crusader
    Hunter: Rifleman (THE PINNACLE OF DWARF HUNTER-DOM)
    Warlock: Cabalist
    Mage: Sorcerer/Sorceress
    Rogue: Brigand
    Monk: of the Thousand Facial Hairs
    Shaman: Stormhammer

    Gnome
    Warrior: Steam Warrior
    Priest: Medic
    Mage: Techno-Mage
    Warlock: Technomancer
    Rogue: Ace
    Monk: Friend of the Small

    Night Elf
    Warrior: Sentinel
    Hunter: Archer/Huntress
    Rogue: Warden
    Mage: Highborne
    Druid: Archdruid
    Monk: of the Serene Forest
    Priest: Priest of the Moon/Priestess of the Moon (very unsure about this tbh)

    Draenei
    Warrior: Exarch
    Priest: Anchorite
    Shaman: Elder Sage
    Hunter: Tracker
    Mage: Harbinger
    Monk: of the Countless Stars

    Worgen:
    Warrior: Alpha
    Priest: Darksoul
    Mage: Wizard (because of the whole ye olde Britain thing it's got going on )
    Warlock: Shadow Weaver
    Druid: Moonwalker
    Rogue: Dark Runner
    Hunter: Stalker

    Orc:
    Warrior: Blademaster
    Mage: Pyremaster
    Warlock: Necrolyte
    Shaman: Far Seer
    Rogue: Spymaster
    Hunter: Beastmaster
    Monk: The Iron Fist

    Troll
    Warrior: Berserker
    Mage: Hexer
    Shaman: , The Fire-Eater
    Warlock: Doomsayer
    Priest: Witch Doctor
    Hunter: Shadow Hunter/Headhunter (dunno about this one)
    Rogue: Assassin
    Monk: Bane of Shadowy Voodoo
    Druid: Subversive

    Tauren:
    Warrior: Primalist/Chieftain (unsure about this as well)
    Druid: Nature Guardian
    Shaman: Spirit Walker
    Paladin: Sunwalker
    Priest: Sun Seer
    Monk: Runemaster

    Undead:
    Warrior: Deathguard
    Hunter: Dark Ranger
    Rogue: Deathstalker
    Mage: Conjuror
    Warlock: Acolyte
    Priest: Disciple
    Monk: of the Relentless Soul

    Blood Elf:
    Warrior: Spellbreaker/Guardian
    Hunter: Ranger
    Rogue: Bandit Lord
    Mage: Magister/Magistrix
    Warlock: Blood Mage
    Paladin: Blood Knight
    Priest: Dawn Priest
    Monk: of the Enduring Hardship

    Goblin:
    Warrior: Bruiser
    Rogue: Saboteur
    Mage: Moolah Magician (i loved this one too much to place any other)
    Warlock: Netherologist
    Shaman: Geomancer
    Priest: Soothsayer
    Hunter: Sharpshooter

    Pandaren:
    Warrior: Champion of the Fatal Strike
    Shaman: Master of the Four Elements
    Priest: Safeguard of the Eternal Battle
    Mage: Maestro of the Many Magics
    Monk: Sensei

    Death Knight titles (with thanks to Teebone):
    Human: Death Bringer ____
    Gnome: ___ of Rusted Gears
    Draenei: ___ the Fallen
    Dwarf: Dark Mountaineer ___
    Night Elf: Moonfell ___
    Worgen: Rotting Fang ____

    Orc: Revenant ____
    Undead Reaper ____
    Tauren: ____ of the Dusk
    Troll: Blood Lord ___
    Blood Elf: Plague Knight ____
    Goblin: ____ the Bankrupt
    no gameplay changed side from the inevitable talent you'd get at that level anyway, nobody left out, just one questline needed and 2kb worth of variable text data

    I can tell im gonna get that classic mmo-champion "NO SHUT UP, YOUR IDEAS ARE STUPID, SHUT UP PLEASE OH MY GOD PLEASE SHUT UP PEASANT" treatment, its just some fun and if something like this gets implemented, it wouldnt harm anybody! it'd just be badass to be able to play

    VINDICATOR SPACEHOOF

    or

    GNOMERCY, FRIEND OF THE SMALL


    or
    PYREMASTER ZUGZUG


    besides, how many "saviours of azeroth" can we have? These titles might not be much of an incentive to experiment with race/class combos, but they would give a nice little feeling

    EDIT:

    Also some people are asking for spec-specific titles,
    i.e Chaos Reaver for Destro Warlocks
    Druid of the Claw for Feral Druids

    I believe a post like this has already made its appearance around here,but anyway...
    I think this would be a nice way to feel your character more like you want to play it, but i would perhaps add spec-specific titles also.
    No example comes to mind right now,but it would be nice to see.

    Like Stormcaller for an Elementalist Shaman or Restorer for a Restoration Shaman, that'd be cool

    The only problem I would see is coming up with a title for each and every class-race combo. Doing lose math as it is far too early in the morning for me to bother, you would need at least 100 different and unique titles. That is, unless you were suggesting leaving some class/race combos to their fates and be the unlucky few

    Sad story is I thought of one for every race-class combo until my login session expired and it didnt save what I typed up
    Theres all kinds of unit names you could use
    Nightbane Shadow Weavers=Worgen Warlocks so they could have a "Shadow Weaver" title
    Holdout Medics=Gnome Priests so they could have a "Medic" title

    just gotta get creative!

    I think you mean 'Blood Knight' for Blood Elf Paladin

  9. #9
    Netherologist for Goblin Warlock
    Steam Warrior for a Gnome Warrior
    Seer for a Tauren Priest
    Sentinel for a Night Elf Warrior

    theres genuinely all kinds of titles and it really helps solidify an identity for the player, its like a harmless version of the "special snowflake" treatment, as opposed to giving everyone a big dragon to fly around on

    Class/race specific titles __if they in no way alter the mechanics of the game__ would constitute balance-neutral flavor enhancement to the game

    therefore i am all for class/race specific titles.

    Of course it might take a LOT of resources to develop quest line for all the various specific class/race combos, so an efficient method of streamlining the process would need to be instituted (e.g. each class gets a shared quest line, but every race that has acces to that class gets a different accomplishment title upon finishing the quest line)

    I like this idea, it has lots of flavor and adds some "unique" details to your character. Now, it might be a bit harsh to come up with all the tittles for all the combos around. Some of your examples are spot on, like tauren palading being a sunwalker, but on other places was a bit off. Of course, its just suggestions, but the overall idea is solid imo.

    well most titles already exist in the lore, it's not like we have to search far for names, none of them need to be new.

    it might be fun to have these titles awarded as an epic quest chain? maybe a class/spec quest. dunno just throwing it out there!

    I like the idea, is an easy and simple way to customize our characters in function of the chosen race and class, in addition for example after 95 levels I think I can now consider myself an Archmage...

    I would love this. Anything that adds a little more racial flavor is always welcome imo.

    In the Domination Point scenario, the Dwarf warlocks are called "Ironforge Cabalists". Maybe called them Darkforge/Felforge Cabalists?
