Thumbs down Champion of the Gods

Champion of the Gods. That is the ultimate reward title for those who prefer living in Tyria for 5 years over having a life. (In response to recent events, I am compelled to let you know that my previous statement was intended as satire and does not reflect actual reality.)

For such a great and admirable achievement, this title sounds rather unimpressive, doesn't it? I mean, it sounds like something I would obtain by acquiring a good standing with the temple faction - it's alright, but nothing really eye-catching.

Agree / disagree / facepalm?

Oh I don't know, I'm not responsible for that kind of stuff.

But seeing how I'm easily impressed and childish, long and cheesy titles like I Have Many Leather Bound Books and My Guild Hall Smells of Rich Mahogany tend to have a greater awe factor for me.

Myeah, you're probably right. It's a bit aged by now but it's still a good trusty title.

I think Legend of the Mists sounds better but I guess it's all opinion. I need 2 more points for Flameseeker and I don't think i'll go past that.

Titles alone are a bit on the lameish side, what they should have done is shifted all the bonus items to the right of the reward meter so that the Fire Gods Vambrances are obtained with the Champion title, and the first batch of armor isn't obtainable until Chosen.

That's just my opinion though, seems like they're giving too much away too early TBH. And yes, Legend of the Mists > Champion of the Gods.

I would name it: "Been there, done that. All of it".

But that's just me.

I think you've misunderstood me, which is no surprise as I was trying to be sort of tongue-in-cheek sarcastic in my first post with more or less success.

You don't receive the Champion of the Gods title for having an account for 5 years, but rather by achieving the maximal 50 points on the Hall of Monuments Reward Calculator. This encompasses a lot of different areas of Guild Wars (mostly PvE though), all of which you need to complete to a great extent in order to acquire the aforementioned title in GW2.

My goal is to get "Legend of the Mists" I'm pretty close. "Ghostly Hero" is also very nice btw.

I'm also not a fan of "Flameseeker" and "Champion of the Gods". Longer titles do mostly sound cooler for some reason...

Legendary Champion of the Gods. It's as easy as that

I don't like how both COTG and GWAMM titles will look in GW2, just imagine a whole new game world starting and lots, lots of players running around with GOD titles already. And how will most GW2 titles look like compared to that? Isn't it way over the top? Or can you see even more epic-godly sounding titles in GW2 so it's basically the norm. Still...

* Wrong Way Anet *

The ultimate inherited titles should have been named like "Descendant of the Gods" or something else that would suggest that you got a godlike past. Godlike awesomeness in GW2 should be earned in GW2.

I do agree with all of that. The new titles, including the GW2-gwamm could have a theme that suggests a glorious past instead of a godlike present, and still look pretty damn cool below your character's name.

QFT.

Before the game is released, we are all still noobs in GW2. A level 1 noob with a god-like title does sound ridiculous.
