Codex entry for Darth title for SW:
Quote:
The Dark Council officially recognized your authority as a Darth after you defeated Darth Baras.
So is Emperor's Wrath a Darth by canon, or just a Lord like Scourge?

Pretty sure Emperor's Wrath is it's own rank.

To my recollection, the "Darth" title for Sith Warriors was shoehorned in shortly before the game went live. Originally, Warriors would officially be recognized as the "Emperor's Wrath" by the Dark Council upon you dealing with Baras and that would have been your title instead of Darth. But apparently, there were both people who were whining about being spoiled by the title and those who wanted to also be a Darth.

Hence, the "Emperor's Wrath" title was removed and Warriors got the "Darth" instead.

If it's of any more help, the initial questgiver for the Oricon storyline on Vaiken Spacedock will refer to the Warrior as "Lord Wrath".

Well Palps refers to Vader as "Lord Vader", but we know Vader's real title.

The Emperor's Wrath is technically a Lord. Post act 3 dialogue has most NPCs referring to you as Lord Wrath, etc. and never as Darth, ever.

Emperor's wrath is its own title, but the player character gets access to title "Darth" the same as inquisitor once story has advanced enough. So I would say warrior is 'Darth'.

Sounds plausible. I don't think there is much actual difference between 'lord' and 'darth'. This is fiction, after all.

Darth Baras actually gives you a lesson on the difference between a Lord and a Darth at the end of Warrior Act 1. There is a distinct difference.

Also, the inquisitor is declared a Darth by Darth Marr at the end of their story in addition to receiving the title. The Warrior receives the title as well but no one ever declares him as such at any point in the story.

Also for those who played in Beta like myself know that yes, Darth was originally unavailable to the Warrior, we got "The Emperor's Wrath" title instead, but a lot of QQ resulted in it getting changed.
