And whenever NiM TFB goes in with their title, you can again be the only guild on your side of your server with the title for THAT. Following level raise or gear progression, timed or completion run titles become little more than RP, nostalgia or Epeen (in the last case, if it's taken away). Get over it. Some of them are pretty cool titles. There's very little point to spending actual time to remove it other than to make it so you can pretend it's some grand accomplishment 3 years from now when you're trying to prove what a hardcore bad***** you are.

Obviously only my personal opinion, but you want to continue self-identifying as awesome? Keep doing the content that proves you are current in your "awesomeness". Let those who just like the title have theirs too.

Me personally? I may or may not have mine at some point in the future. Not because I don't have the skill, but because we dealt with some suboptimal turnover issues at critical points in the progression timeline.

Basically my opinion is LEAVE THEM IN. They don't hurt ANYONE except those who's sense of self-worth is linked to e-peen waggling (you don't work that thing out, and it'll fall off anyway).

You don't want other people to have it because you got it when it was hard and you think other people doing it at 55 will devalue it in some way? Pretty sure that's exactly what he means by attention whoring. It doesn't matter if other people get it at 55, or 60, or 70, or whatever, it doesn't take anything away from you. There aren't a limited number of warstalker titles per server, you won't have to defend yours in the thunderdome.

these timed runs are pretty trivial anyways. Everyone should be trying to clear this easy content fast already. The longest one is NMM EC and that only takes 45 mins. I honestly don't think bioware could make this content any easier for people to get these free titles.

What does it matter to you how someone else got their title?

Hehe, I asked the same question a month ago or so, people jumped down my throat a whole lot worse.

I don't think the titles are going anywhere soon, they would have made an announcement about it.

I can tell you this now even though some people might be L55 and full UW/Ark you still need the skill to take down kephess all the gear in the world won't save bad raid awareness so they will still fail

Skill? More like "time spent learning the mechanics of the fight".

It's almost like time spent learning mechanics & resulting skill are directly proportional to each other :O
