Title-Specific discussions:

Alphabetical Order?[edit source]

The article states the titles with equal progression will be in alphbetical order I can disprove that. Cartographer is clearly before Skill in the alphabet is it not? COrrect me if i'm wrong in some way Lyra Valo 15:53, 25 May 2007 (CDT) Alphabetical.JPG

Whoever that is (I'm guessing you) must have earned 2 continents in Skill Hunter before they (you) earned the 2 in Cartographer. -- MiniKold 16:52, 6 June 2007 (CDT)
Nevertheless they are in "equal progression", 2 of 3. The rule should be about which was completed first to be consistent with your explanation. Rather, I'm thinking that that user actually progressed further in the 3rd Skill Hunter title than in the 3rd Cartographer title, thus the Skill Hunter would have progressed more (even though not shown), which would be consistent with the rule above. Just as a note, even if that person only owns 2 campaigns, he'd now have some progression on the Skill Hunter title for the third campaign because of the Core Elite skills, but no progression possible on the Cartographer. Alaris 10:10, 7 June 2007 (CDT)

I had earned Cartographer first, and I was most likely ahead in 3rd Skill Hunter. But I am unsure.

Easy to check: just check which of the two is ahead, and see if that corresponds with the order of Legendaries. You can also check if making progress can change the order. Alaris 09:49, 11 June 2007 (CDT)


They are ordered in how far you arte into the title now Mishter Anderson 11:19, 28 October 2007 (UTC)


What about THIS? Here you see that the Legendary Skill Hunter is Higher than Legendary Cartographer, but the two remaining Cartography titles are further along then the two remaining Skill Hunter titles. Please tell me your input on that... Chocobo 16:13, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

Mishter Anderson, above, stated why it is like you have it. It lists them in order of rank/%to-go. --- VipermagiSig.JPG-- (s)talkpage 16:17, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

Chop Chop time?[edit source]

Is it time to break this into sub-artiles linked by the master Title article? I think each title track should go in it's own article so that tips and guides can be placed there. Also so that referencing the specific title from other articles is cleaner. Thoughts? --Karlos 07:10, 2 June 2006 (CDT)

Hmmmm ... I find the article not too long yet (especially since it could be shortened by a lot switching most sections to table format, avoiding redundant text). We have much longer article in this wiki that could have been split, but weren't. Also, I don't think that linking to individual titles will happen very often from articles other than user pages.
Having said that, I wouldn't mind chop-chop, as long as we also keep an overview in the Title article. :)
Karlos, I know you probably hate the idea, but what about working with inclusions to have all the titles both in individual articles and all in one combined article at the same time? --Tetris L 07:34, 2 June 2006 (CDT)
P.S.: Regardless of the split I'll switch some of the sections to table format now. --Tetris L 07:35, 2 June 2006 (CDT)


I am always loathed to the inclusion scheme, but if it's just in one article (title) and all the others are just straight forward articles, It's not that big of a deal. It's not religion, it's a wiki. :) --Karlos 08:39, 2 June 2006 (CDT)
How can you say that? Heretic! Burn him, burn him!!! ;) --Tetris L 08:56, 2 June 2006 (CDT)
Just put on max superior runes and if you die with 55 life, you get resed with one life. You don't even need aggroed enemies, you just need a vampiric item, your one health goes down instantly, this title doesn't exist I think.
I guess the anonymous edit above was meant to go in the "survivor" title discussion section. --Tetris L 01:53, 12 June 2006 (CDT)
Karlos, you wanna go for it? I'll add this task to my to-do list, but first I have to do those gods' statues articles. They've been on my list for ages! --Tetris L 01:53, 12 June 2006 (CDT)
I'm in favour of keeping it together, but if it does get split up, I think it should be split into account-based titles and character-based titles. Giving each article its own title sounds like overkill. -- Gordon Ecker 03:38, 1 July 2006 (CDT)
The article is growing more and more, and some titles are getting a lot of links from other articles. I think it is definetly enough to warrant splitting. Shall we vote? --Tetris L 07:11, 27 October 2006 (CDT)
Anyone? --Tetris L 01:37, 31 October 2006 (CST)
For starters, and to give people a better idea, I've chop-chopped the Champion, created a separate article for it, but also included it in the title article. The title article looks exactly as it looked before, but the champion is still separate. Do you like it? I do. Unless anybody objects by the end of the week I'll process all titles in the same manner. --Tetris L 02:07, 31 October 2006 (CST)

Still see absolutely no good reason for this. --Rainith 06:20, 31 October 2006 (CST)

No good reason?? Check "What links here". There are more than 100 links to the article, even if you don't count the links from user and talk pages, and pretty much all of these links are meant for an individual title (Cartographer, Drunkard, Survivor, Lightbringer, ...), hence linking to a section of the article. This isn't like key or chest, where splitting into all the individual keys/chests was decided to be overkill, even though they are actually individual items. I'd say splitting is well warranted. The talk page was already split by individual titles for a good reason (see top of page). --Tetris L 06:43, 2 November 2006 (CST)
All solvable with redirects to this article... --Rainith 11:08, 2 November 2006 (CST)
Oh, please! Yes, of course it's "solvable" by a redirect workaround, but is it feasible? Let's put ALL the content of GuildWiki in ONE big article and make all the individual articles redirects to it, shall we? ;)
Don't get me wrong. Usually I'm in favor of keeping information together rather than splitting it, because a big article often gives a better overview and avoids redundancy. But in this case I have to say there is little benefit. The individual titles have very little to do with eachother except that they are all titles (which can be covered by a single sentence). There is little need for a big overview. Who wants to see ALL the progressions of ALL the titles? And even if, it can easily be done by inclusion, like I've done with the Champion article. The most compelling argument for me are the 100+ links. Yes, they can be covered by redirects, but IMHO redirects to sections of an article are really cumbersome and should be avoided. If an individual section of an article gets a lot of links that alone is sufficient evidence for me that a separate article for that section is warranted. --Tetris L 02:58, 3 November 2006 (CST)
I'll start a vote. --Tetris L 02:41, 6 November 2006 (CST)

Phew. I'm done with creating articles, created a navbox, created the "old style" title overview (with inclusions) and last but not least edited the title article. It is now very brief, with only a short decription and a table of available titles. Have a look and comment. I still have to fix all links that are now broken, and I want to move the talk sections to the correct articles, but at the current server speed that will take me another day or two. --Tetris L 11:26, 14 November 2006 (CST)

Now that the server is back to lightning fast speed I was finally able to complete this in a reasonable time. I fixed all links (except links on user pages, talk pages and game update and news pages). I also moved the talk pages listed at the top of this talk page to the respective title. I'll also move the various sections on this talk page to the correct talk page if they apply to an individual title. --Tetris L 05:37, 16 November 2006 (CST)

Please do not vote any more. The vote is closed, and the result is kept here only for documentation. --Tetris L 05:06, 16 November 2006 (CST)

Should the title article be split?

Anyway ... Hereby I declare the vote closed. The result is pretty clear. I'll create an article for each title, and I'll fix all links to the title article. The title article will contain a list.
I'll create the articles in such a way that inclusion is possible. I consider also creating Title overview, which would include all titles. This should make those happy who voted for "No" or "Yes, with inclusion". --Tetris L 05:01, 13 November 2006 (CST)

I'll be surprised if you ever get it done. This slowness, and apparent lack of concern on the server administrator's part, is driving me away from the wiki.

Death Title[edit source]

I know that the Death Title Track is absolutely uncomfirmed, but it would still be nice to read something about it in the article. At least something like "There are rumors about a Death Title Track which would supposedly trigger at 100 000 character deaths, but this is probably not true..." etc etc... So it would be something like a comment rather than part of the article. Yeah, I know I should do it myself, but I'm still new and I'm afraid of screwing things up. Otherwise, I don't know that much about the history of this rumor myself..The preceding unsigned comment was added by Adul (talk • contribs) 07:47, 23 July 2006 (CDT).

I'd rather not have that in the article, it is pure speculation for now ST47 User:ST47/Romu_of_SFI User:ST47/Account#Unlocked_Elites (talk) 07:59, 23 July 2006 (CDT)
Okay, no problem. I'm into it, actually, because I've never heard anyone saying anything about reaching 100 000 deaths which isn't really such a big deal as it can be done in about 2 weeks.And I've got enough work to do on my comp, so why not try it during? I'll tell you if I found something. Adul 10:36, 23 July 2006 (CDT)
please don't remove the unsigned template, as it messes up the time of posting User:ST47 User:ST47/Romu_of_SFI User:ST47/Account#Unlocked_Elites (talk) 10:41, 23 July 2006 (CDT)
Sorry, I still need to get used to this. Adul 10:43, 23 July 2006 (CDT)
The general rule is that we don't post rumors. If there is something rumored to exist (a Death-title track for example), ask about it in the talk page for the appropriate article. The last thing that we want is for the pages of the wiki to become full of rumor and speculation to the point that they are essentially useless.
The only exception to this that I can think of is the Terror Shield article. And the only reason that was added was because that fake was soooo prevalent and talked about when it first came up. The point of that article was to try to help people and stop them from being fooled. --Rainith 13:00, 23 July 2006 (CDT)
I am sure there is no death title. The lower levels of titles are shown even when you have a very low count. Ie I can see the drunkard title with only a few minutes of drunkness. The people with 100,000 deaths would surely see a title in their title tab if one existed. Gaile also said a line or two about it in the latest Gaile talk. She said it might be cool or something. Can't remember. --Gem-icon-sm.png (talk) 15:19, 23 July 2006 (CDT)
Ditto. There was a guy over at gwguru who posted his 1.000.000th (yes, that's 1M, not 100K) death's screenshots. He would know of a title track, would he not? --Ishmaeel 02:46, 24 July 2006 (CDT)
The maximum dying frequency is about 4 deaths/minute = 1/(10 sec wait for ress + 5 sec invulnerablility). So dying 10^6 times lasts 10^6 deaths/4 dpm = 250000 minutes = 173 days. If anyone got that he used an account just to farm deaths... That sounds like a fake!
You can die faster than that 5 sec of invulnerability with a vamp weapon...but it still would take forever. And not all title tracks show progress starting from the way begining...survivor for example.
YOu can also get any character in the game down to 55 HP with low armor and have them stand at a rez-shrine with aggro all around it and just keep dying over and over. That would be more than 4 deaths per minute. It would be closer to around 6. — Jyro X Darkgrin.jpg 05:52, 2 November 2006 (CST)
You can get far more than 6 per minute with a whole team of Heroes with quick resurrection skills. I know I got down to 1 health with DP and runes, my vampiric weapon killed me before Death Pact Signet could be applied, so the Hero that used it didn't die. I got approximately 1,500 in less than an hour that way, so I suppose you can at least stretch that to 25. Kite 19:29, 27 June 2007 (CDT)
If there were a death title track, every LDoA would be well on their way to getting it. 137.142.181.179 17:32, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

New "title effects"[edit source]

Dislike that idea alot. So far ANet has thankfully stayed away from giving rewards (other than the ego boosting sort) for farming. So now you need the most farming related title of them all to successfully salvage weapons? Blah. I would not mind them adding a glowing halo or such, but anything that has effects on the game (and not only the visuals) is a bad idea imho. Will my mini-kuunavang start to deal damage as well? Meh. --Xeeron 16:50, 20 October 2006 (CDT)

Yeh. This sucks man. I'm losing faith in the one expansion which I actually had faith in. I hope Nightfall wont be such a disapointment as Factions. --Gem-icon-sm.png (talk) 17:00, 20 October 2006 (CDT)
I thought I were the only one going to hate this. Obviously not, nice to hear. The rewards would be nice, if the titles would be possible for everyone to reach. The treasure hunter is not, I would say. You have to be good at chest farming and have money for keys, or play for years. Not my style of "casual play". Though, weapons still have minor effects, if you play good. I have more doubts about the Lightbringer title. Will it cause elitism in PvE too now? Or how will it work? — Stylva 18:11, 20 October 2006 (CDT)
Worse yet, the wisdom title track is character-based. So if you really want the title, you need to decide which character is going to go for it, then give all gold items to that one character to identify. A bit of a pain needing to shuffle through storage to transfer items whenever you want it identified. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 18:21, 20 October 2006 (CDT)
I'm going to add my objections to this too. The biggest thing Anet seemed to be stressing was rewarding skill and not time spent grinding. I'm not going to speak about Lightbringer, as there's no information stating how it will be earned, but the Wisdom title explicitly rewards grinding. Boo-urns --User:ImbrilShadowfire Imbril Shadowfire 18:25, 20 October 2006 (CDT)

I think you guys are missing ANet's point. In case you are not aware, the title system is ANet's way of keeping PvEers happy and busy. Happy by satisfying their ego with something to show their PvE achievements other than becoming level 100 and lookin gdown on people, and busy because most will take a lot of work and keep you in the game instead of running off to WoW.

So, for them to give in-game effects to some of the titles is a logical thing to do. I can bet that the effects in general will be minor but will make the title owner proud and boastful and so forth. As one who has a bunch of titles and worked hard at many of them, I am happy. But I also know it won't be a big edge, because then, as Xeeron said, grind will become required, something ANet will never allow. --Karlos 18:33, 20 October 2006 (CDT)

Well I am not against titles, I have quite a few of them myself, but I dont see why people need another reward for that. So far I have seen people being happily spending hours and days just running around walls to get the cartografer title. The titles did work, there was no need to change it. And the wisdom title was the worst of the lot they could have choosen for it as well, since there is no way a casual gamer can ever achieve that one. --Xeeron 19:00, 20 October 2006 (CDT)
On the other hand, I seldom find weapons I want to keep but want to salvage a mod off. Either, I want the weapon as it is, I want the mod, or I can change the mod to a mod I like. It's not a very big issue with the Wisdom title for me after all. It's to see how the Lightbringer title turns out, but they have probably thought it out in a nice way. — Stylva 06:11, 21 October 2006 (CDT)
I think you missed the point of the kool thing about the wisdom title advantage. You can basically try and salvage the perfect Sundering mod off that sundering Falchion of Ogreslaying nad then get the Ogreslaying mod, so now you can try again. It's a HUGE advantage over the previous 50/50 flip a coin technique (not to mention the odds of actually getting Iron Ingots). --Karlos 07:57, 21 October 2006 (CDT)
Well, I rarely find a weapon with two perfect mods I want, but yes, I see the nice thing in that. Though, it's not so big that you really have to get the Wisdom title just for that. Imho. But I still think that titles that affect gameplay should be possible to get for casual gamers. — Stylva 08:03, 21 October 2006 (CDT)
What Stylva said: The idea is nice, but why involve the wisdom title? --Xeeron 08:05, 21 October 2006 (CDT)
I like this idea. Gives me another reason to try to get titles, but, I bet these advantages won't be big enough to "OMG I CAN NOW 1 HIT KILL ANY DEMON11!1!1!*shiftlock*". Remember, ANet always tries to make everyone happy, casual players or people who can dedicate themselves to a title, titles are obviously something to be grinded. Casual players might not be winning anything with THIS feature, even though that after one year playing even a casual player might have a decent title. But remember, it's not like the bonus titles will give are going to be something to break the balance of the game, which is obviously GW's essence, heart, soul, or whatever you may want to call it. There are other features which will benefit the casual players, like for example the build save/load feature, which is going to save A LOT of time, a preciousity to most players. Just think that it's something new for grinders to achieve, which will not spoil gameplay, or allow some player to get as strong as South Park's WoW villain. Thanks A.Net, for everything announced on that newsletter because it made me even more excited to play Nightfall. Ericdanie 09:19, 21 October 2006 (CDT)

We need a balthazar faction title.. I have 1m faction and can't show it off.. Plus when you say 500k+ balth faction or more to join a guild you can't really know if they have it or not >_>

Numbers for titles?[edit source]

Should there be a number for each title indicating, which rank that title is? E.g. Hero and Lightbringer have it, but Gladiator and Commander don't have it.

Hero should have it as it matches with a player's rank, none of the other titles should though (IMHO, others may disagree). I'm not sure why Lightbringer has it. --Rainith 14:22, 5 January 2007 (CST)
It's much easier to see, what bonus will be granted, e.g. for the Treasure Hunter Title if one can see, which Title belongs to which number, now one has to count manually. There are two ways of implementing th number:
Title Gamer Points needed
Skillz (1) 1000
Pro Skillz (2) 2000
Numchuck Skillz (3) 4000
Mad Skillz (4) 7000
Über Micro Skillz (5) 12000
Gosu Skillz (6) 20000
??? ???
This is as it's in the game.
Rank Title Gamer Points needed
1 Skillz 1000
2 Pro Skillz 2000
3 Numchuck Skillz 4000
4 Mad Skillz 7000
5 Über Micro Skillz 12000
6 Gosu Skillz 20000
7 ??? ???
This is the second way, which, in my opinion, looks better than the 'Near-InGame'-Solution. 62.68.27.65 19:39, 5 January 2007 (CST)
What about it? Anyone interested in implementing the numbers, too? Or against it? 84.152.45.150 10:44, 11 January 2007 (CST)
As I stated above, I'm personally against it. --Rainith 10:48, 11 January 2007 (CST)
At least titles like Wisdom or all PvP-titles should have it cause you could almost instantly see, what bonus you get from this title, e.g. salvage bonus, BP-cap...

Legendary titles[edit source]

Somebody who's better at formatting then me should get information on Legendary Cartographer, Legendary Guardian, Legendary Vanquisher and Legendary Skill Hunter up. I'd do it myself, but it would be terrible and just need redone anyways. -Gildan Bladeborn 02:47, 20 April 2007 (CDT)

I see somebody modified the front page to say "(3 titles + Legendary)" which is nice, but there isn't a Legendary Protector title. The Protector titles instead contribute towards Legendary Guardian as that requires 6 titles. I removed that line next to Protector accordingly. -Gildan Bladeborn 03:41, 20 April 2007 (CDT)

Available Titles Table[edit source]

I find the current layout of the table quite confusing, and I find myself having to wrap my brain around it again and again, whenever I look at it. I am referring to the partition at the lower right quadrant. Now I see the logic behind it (LDoA, Sunspear and Lightbringer are campaign specific and the Protector, Cartographer, etc. are not quite "Core") but the layout just seems counter-intuitive to me. I believe many find it confusing too, seeing the repeated anon edits adding Legendary titles to the top cell.

I propose to reformat the table as follows: Change the "Core" title to "Core and Multi-Campaign", remove the extra sub-column from the "Character Based" column and move the Protector, Cartographer etc. titles to the top row of the Char-based column. Like so:

Campaign Account-based Character-based
Core
(or multi-campaign)
Prophecies

-none-

Factions

-none-

Nightfall

Yours truly, --Lazyeyes.pngIshmaeel .ping( ) ; .peek( ); 16:52, 21 April 2007 (CDT)

Since somebody went and royally screwed up the table today, I'm implementing this as it's much better then the current version. -Gildan Bladeborn 17:11, 21 April 2007 (CDT)
I've made a modification. I think it's ok now. Foo 20:18, 21 April 2007 (CDT)
Much better now with the core and multiple campaign titles separated. Good job! --Gem-icon-sm.png (gem / talk) 21:17, 21 April 2007 (CDT)
Thanks Gildan, thanks Foo. Me like it. Future generations of anons will be indebted to you, I'm sure.--Lazyeyes.pngIshmaeel .ping( ) ; .peek( ); 03:53, 22 April 2007 (CDT)


WHOEVER SAID DEFENDER OF ASCALON CAN NOT BE DONE WITH THE SURVIVOR TITLE IS A MORON. YOU DEATH LEVEL THE CHARR WITH A PET.

Displaying title required?[edit source]

In order to get the bonus for titles like treasure hunter or wisdom seeker. do you have to display the title? --Firestorm2 12:22, 27 July 2007 (CDT)

No, the title is active at all times. The only one that must be displayed to get the bonus from is Lightbringer.--Darksyde Never Again 09:34, 12 August 2007 (CDT)

You have to display GW:EN titles for them to work as well.

"Exclusive"?[edit source]

It says Defender of Ascalon and Survivor are exclusive to each other. But this is not true if you think about it enough. Yes you have to death level all of the enemies, but what if you had an extremely devoted friend, or someone you could pay to die, you resurrect, repeat to death level Charr so you can reach 20? I'm quite sure that little note should be changed since both can be attained on the same character. no matter how hard it is, it's possible--Darksyde Never Again 09:33, 12 August 2007 (CDT)

No it's not. You would have to keep ressing them, but Res Sig only works once. There is no other res in pre searing. And Anet changed the res shrine to only res you if you are both dead. --Macros 10:23, 12 August 2007 (CDT)
Then what about death levelling using your pet? Comfort Animal is in Pre searing, right?--Darksyde Never Again 20:48, 13 August 2007 (CDT)
Then again, we're talking about the Survivor and LDoA title, not pet death-leveling. The Imperialist
Pets don't give XP, so they can't be used to level up monsters. So unless someone proves otherwise (e.g. gets Survivor(1) in Pre or at least a level high enough), it simply can't be done. Alaris 09:26, 14 August 2007 (CDT)
There's gotta be a way, there's just gotta! >.<--Darksyde Never Again 16:51, 17 August 2007 (CDT)
Is there no NPC anywhere with a hard res? What about items which give you morale boosts? 86.134.152.74 02:03, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
Morale boosts won't help. As for NPCs with hard res...? I'm not a pre-expert :) Alaris 17:11, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

It can be done. A friend of mine has both LDoA and Survivor titles. It is just a matter of pet-lvling monsters (which can be done) and killing them without dying (Necro is the best choice). Then go Post-, and earn a level or two to achieve Survivor.

Except... pets don't give exp --Gimmethegepgun 23:59, 8 February 2008 (UTC)
The only way this is possible is if you used a glitch to achieve both titles. The two ways I am aware of are going to guild hall to get a monk tome to get a hard rez skill. Or for awhile there was a quest that you could do over and over getting the xp but not having enough room for the item reward, abandoning the quest and repeating. Characters with hard rez's in pre or monk tomes were asked by Anet to leave so I think very few would have achieved both titles. I believe those who exploited the repeatable quest were caught as well and may have had to delete those characters. There are many speculations on different sites about possible ways to get both titles, but really they are mutually exclusive unless you take advantage of a temporary bug in the game. 207.171.180.101 00:58, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
There is no 'legal' or 'legit' way to get both titles in presearing. Please see http://presearing.com/forum2/index.php?topic=5701.0 137.142.181.179 17:35, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

New Eye of the North title???[edit source]

i think we should add the asura title track in there cuz we know for a fact there will be a such thing. we all know that the starting rank will be 1000 as all the others and the next would be 4000. im just doing this as my guess of wat it will be. P.S. i dont care bout grammar atm cuz i just dont got the time to put all the things capitalized and stuff. id do it but not sure wat to do. --Hellbringer 16:46, 25 August 2007 (CDT) -- EDIT -- i got my guess from all the other eye of the north titles. --Hellbringer 16:47, 25 August 2007 (CDT)

I'd hold off adding things until we know what it's called in game and all the relevant details.
On that note though, Master of the North is listed in the table on the titles page, but missing from the navbar at the bottom. I have no idea where that resource is or how to edit it to include that link, or else I'd add it myself. -Gildan Bladeborn 14:20, 27 August 2007 (CDT)
You really, really, don't need time to use good grammar. I'm thinking this as I write it, and I'm having no problems with grammar, punctuation, nor spelling.

Number of Titles[edit source]

Aren't there only 43 maxable titles (42 because of survivor/LDoA), or did I just miss something? There is only one Commander title, so that may cause confusion...Varon Searer 06:58, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

You are right. 34 character-based, 9 account-based = 43. Maaya 21:17, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

I must be missing something here. 10 account based titles (with the inclusion of Zaishen) and 34 character based, but 1 is mutually exclusive and 1 is not "maxable" (eg: Maxed Titles track). Wouldn't that be 42 achievable and 44 total?72.183.101.208 03:20, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

That note isn't saying how many maxed titles a character can have, so the Maxed Titles track is still included in that count. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 04:07, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Max Title Accountment[edit source]

The gods extend their blessings when someone maxes out a title, right? This page should have a list of the town in which someone can see these "congratulatory" messages. If I misunderstand the system, let me know and disregard my demand ^^" --76.197.2.30 00:44, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

Note[edit source]

The note on this page says that survivor and defender of ascalon are mutually exclusive. Is this true? i thought you could earn defender while preserving survivor by having a friend death-level monsters for you, or by leveling then killing your pet

43[edit source]

Who has all 43? the exclusive would have to of been obtained b4 nerf btw.--Relyk 00:40, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

That person would have to be both a PvE and PvP B*tch, which like never happens.... Plus, isn't one of the PvP titles (the GvG one?) currently unmaxable or nobody has done it yet or something like that? RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.jpg 17:45, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

max title order[edit source]

I think there is a pre-determined order of maxed titles, because they did not display (not even close for some) in the order I achieved them, nor are they in Alphabetical or any other predictable kind of order, other than Elona always being first, and Tyria last. I achieved Skill Hunters long before Vanquishers, and they got interlaced for some reason. Spearmarshal came looong before Lightbringer, but Not Too Shabby came before Slayer of All... Here's the Hero Panel order of all the maxed ones I currently have. Can someone confirm that their's is the same or different?

  1. Savior of the Luxons
  2. Savior of the Kurzicks
  3. Slayer of All
  4. Secret Agent
  5. Legendary Delver
  6. Not Too Shabby
  7. Legendary Spearmarshal
  8. Holy Lightbringer
  9. Legendary Master of the North
  10. Legendary Survivor
  11. Life of the Party
  12. Connoisseur of Confectionaries
  13. Incorrigible Ale-Hound
  14. Guardian of Elona
  15. Guardian of Cantha
  16. Guardian of Tyria
  17. Legendary Vanquisher
  18. Legendary Skill Hunter
  19. Legendary Guardian
  20. Legendary Cartographer
  21. Elonian Vanquisher
  22. Elonian Elite Skill Hunter
  23. Canthan Vanquisher
  24. Canthan Elite Skill Hunter
  25. Tyrian Vanquisher
  26. Tyrian Elite Skill Hunter
  27. Legendary Defender of Ascalon
  28. Protector of Elona
  29. Protector of Cantha
  30. Protector of Tyria
  31. Elonian Grandmaster Cartographer
  32. Canthan Grandmaster Cartographer
  33. Tyrian Grandmaster Cartographer
A quick scan down my titles has the same order for the maxed ones I have. Lord of all tyria 18:10, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
It goes by rank and percentage. Prot/Guardian/GMC all have one rank, complete. SS has 10 ranks. Lb has 8 ranks, and so forth. --- Ohaider!-- (s)talkpage 18:41, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
But how does it sort those with the same ranks? E.g. Slayer of All, Not too Shabby, and Legendary Spearmarshal all have 10 ranks. All others that Rose listed except for LB have 1 rank. For those, they are ordered Guardian > Legendary > Vanquisher/Skill Hunter (no idea why those are mixed) > Protector > Cartographer. It not a logical ordering, and the only reasonable explanation I can think of is an internal title ID sequence that probably reflects the order that the titles were implemented. Based on the evidence and this speculation, the SQL equivalent of the title sorting would be: ORDER BY maxed_flag DESC, rank DESC, progress DESC, title_id DESC. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 19:03, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
Whatever he just said... ^^ O_O Anyway, do you think we should try to come up with a complete list? Also, I think it makes sense that rep titles are at the top, makes them easier to find when you need to display them. RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.jpg 20:48, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
Just added Secret Agent, which I earned after Slayer of All... I guess this will be the current list we have. If anyone has any more to add, feel free to stick them into the list and sign next to it. RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.jpg 00:36, 11 July 2008 (UTC)
Added Legendary Delver and Master of the North. RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 21:40, 18 June 2009 (UTC)
Added Saviors, LDoA. Legendary Survivor, Life of the Party and Connoisseur of Confectionaries are somewhere between Holy LB and Legendary Skill Hunter, in that order with respect to each other. RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 22:07, February 7, 2010 (UTC)
That got cleared up. ^^ RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 03:11, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

Survivor + Defender of Ascalon[edit source]

Anyone who posts on the official page that you can have a friend or pet death level enemies for you will be banned from this Wiki forever!.. Just kidding, but seriously, STOP POSTING IT, it is NOT POSSIBLE. I keep seeing people post it on multiple title pages over and over! Pets only give exp after their first death, not subsequent deaths, and the only resurrection skill in Pre is the Signet, which does not recharge. THAT'S IT. There's no way around it. There are no gimmicks to pull to get both of these titles. It just won't happen. EVER! On another note, back in the day some people have gotten monk tomes into pre by the use of the GH glitch. The people who had learned a res skill using these tomes have been asked to leave presearing by Anet, "or else"... A few (VERY FEW) lucky people have gotten both titles because of it, but they have been "dealt with" and this will never happen again. There's nothing else to add, nothing else to discuss, so don't believe anyone who tells you otherwise, unless YOU HAVE DONE IT and it works, in which case video evidence is required. /rant RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.jpg 00:28, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

<rant> Nearly right but...aren't there 4 bosses which mean it can recharge 4 times? </rant> -->Suicidal Tendencie 11:15, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
And that benefits you how? RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.jpg 00:17, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
"...but they have been "dealt with" and this will never happen again." I seriously doubt this. Why? Because arena net also stated that they banned everyone who had duped an item (armbraces, anyone?), and I know for a fact that this isn't true. Undoubtedly, someone will slip through the cracks and despite anet's best efforts it's probably still quite possible to get both titles. Now, convincing someone who has a monk tome in pre-searing to sell you it--that's another story... --GW-Seventh 05:41, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
By "dealt with" they meant asked to leave Presearing. It is hard to track down someone who duped one or two items or traded for one, and Anet is willing to give them the benefit of the doubt that they may have had a legitimate lag (that was how the dupe started, due to lag and reconnecting feature bug), they banned the "heavy" violators that were clearly guilty according to the game logs. Think of it as the difference between a misdemeanor and a felony, only the felons were ALL banned, while some of the petty or ignorant violators "slipped through the cracks," as you put it. However, regardless of the duping problem, finding someone with a monk tome or a resurrection spell in Presearing is quite a black and white issue, there is no "gray area" to slip through. You have one, or you don't, and no matter how you got it, it's EASY TO FIND in the game database. So yes, they ALL "have been dealt with," as in "Seared" never to return to Pre (no, they were not banned). So, Seventh, think through your theories and check your sources. Also, if Anet were to see your latest comment, I wouldn't be surprised if they decided to doublecheck your game logs to make sure that YOU aren't one of those who "slipped through the cracks" and are now bragging about it, since you apparently "know for a fact" that someone did. WAS it you? ;) RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 06:00, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
I know 3 people who for a fact duped items, a lot of iems actually, and were not banned at all, either temproarily or permanently. I was not one of them, because I am not a cheater, but they are the same people who told me about the glitch and I know they didn't have the kind of wealth they had after the duping bug that they did before. I know for a fact that someone in Pre-searing Ascalon had a Black Moa bird out and roaming around today (march 10 2009). I know 2 people in Presear that have post searing items they brought back during the observation glitch who were neither "asked to leave" nor banned. I don't really think any of these things are a big deal. I think that A-net actually did deal with the stuff in pre-sear thru the addition of Charr Bags and the expert salvage kit. Max weapons can be generated with the bonus command if you have access to them....... so everyone has the ability to earn what others have. Post sear skills in pre wouldn't really provide any real advantage or disadvantage, cosmetic or otherwise to anyone. You can't farm the Charr altar to level 20anyways and the only real purpose to pre, beyond a training ground is the LDOA title. I know someone that has Barrage on her LDOA-in progress Ranger, (which is still in pre and working hard) I do not know how the heck she got it, but she did..... I dunno how that hurts anyone. Even with a hard rez I submit that maxxing both titles is not possible, and if it were it would be an achievement so monumental that very few players would even attempt it because there are less labor-intensive ways to max out the title tracks. Even if someone was able to use a hard rez to obtain both titles, it would provide no real advantage as it would take as much time to earn those 2 of 30 titles as it would to earn a different pair. Many people myself included, had invested too much in thier characters to restart them when the survivor title was released and were therefore ineligible to get those titles. There are more than 40 max titles no matter how you do the math and only 30 are necessary for the ultimate prestige title, so I don't think that getting both LDOA and LS really give anyone any advantage of any kind. As far as the duping bug is concered I don't see how it is really any different than something like Ursan Blessing was. Some people prefer to have things without earning them, other prefer to take the time to play the game and earn them. Regina stated many times that people shouldn't be concerned with what others were doing and should take pride in what they want to take pride it. I don't see the differnce. People will always find a way to cheat if they want too, wether it is buying gold online from Asians or scamming other players. I would rather they had a backslash command to generate anything they wanted than sit around scamming in trade towns and playing Guru pricing games or buying asian farmed gold online and making the price of party point items skyrocket beyond the reach of honest players like me. There absolutely are people who benefitted from the duping thing and the pre-to-post observation thing and the Ursan Blessing thing still enjoying thier ill-gotten gains. Why let it bother you? 72.221.118.93 07:33, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
I don't care if they check my account, I have nothing to hide, but I do know there are still some of these tomes or characters who have used these tomes in presearing. I really don't care if someone has a hard res in pre, because if they get one more PvE title maxed, it affects me in no way. The only thing that I find ironic is that Anet touts their enforcement of stuff like this (duping, and item/tome transfer to pre) as "perfect" when it's not. I do find it humorous that you would suggest that I would have committed such an offense when you know far more about duplicating items than I do. --GW-Seventh 06:38, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

Well.... there's a wall of text... So anyway, yes, there are still "smuggled" post items in pre, however it is my understanding that those who obtained a hard res or a monk tome in Pre were indeed "asked" to leave into Post. If someone had a hard res, it WOULD be possible, no matter how painfully long, to get both survivor and LDOA, so there would be someone out there trying it. Considering the number of attention whores afk standing in a line in Ascalon AD1 24/7, I have yet to see one sporting "Survivor" on them, so it was not done, and Anet probably made sure it would not happen. If it did, we would have already seen screenshots on Guru and Youtube and wherever else, they would rival those of the Dragon emote. The other items/skills, like you said, are "harmless," so Anet doesn't care to spend the time to remove them, they just gave everyone else salvage kits, bags, and max weapons, problem solved, advantage taken away. If Anet can collect statistics on the most equipped and most frequently used skills in GvG, I can't imagine it being particularly hard for them to track a handful of res skills being used in Pre, and responding long before that person has a slightest chance to get survivor in Pre. We have not seen proof of it having been done, and I can bet you an armbrace that we never will. Tracking duped items is much harder, as they have to look through A LOT of game logs to track all of them down, and I'm sure they banned the majority of the users who got 7 stacks of armbraces doing it, and scared the crap out of the ones who got away and are now afraid to take those items off of their mule accounts. It's just not worth the effort to try and get every rat who took a bite of the cheese, they just found the really fat ones. RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 16:05, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Award Ceremony[edit source]

You know what would be awesome? If there was an optional award ceremony (cutscene) you could see once you maxed out a title. After you returned to the outpost, a box would appear asking if you want to leave your party and visit the ceremony. You could view past ceremonies you've unlocked in the Monument of Honor. Imagine, once you finish your Cartographer title, the International Cartographer's Guild gives you a certificate of achivement, and there's people clapping, and confetti and stuff. It WOULD be some extra work for ANet, but this is really a suggestion for GW2. ShidoSig moebius2.gif 13:11, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

If this is really a suggestion for GW2, you should suggest it on the official site. They've had some licensing issues with suggestions, but they have a new system for it now, I think. But I do agree that this is not likely to happen in GW1, it is very time consuming to create a bug-free cutscene. So far, the best you get is the cutscene of displaying your trophy with the glowing sparkles. :P RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 20:19, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
That's a great idea..And, yeah, GW1 is kind'a over, so I doubt we'll see something like that in the Hall of Monuments. But yeah, you should suggest that to ANet. Personally, I've always thought titles should have some type of reward for maxing, other than a bit of self-achievement and some sparkles in my HoM. Elemental Rain X 22:33, February 7, 2010 (UTC)
