As one of the designers that worked on the Marshal Kain story quests, I wanted to help clear up this subject a little. First, this title represents a knighthood from the Sanctuary Guards. It represents the conclusion of the Marshal Kain story line on the Guardian side. As such, it is a Guardian only title. A great many of our titles are faction specific, and this one is no exception. I cannot say if this or an equivalent title might be made available to Defiants at some point in the future. Second, as this does represent the conclusion of the Marshal Kain story arc, this reward is given after all 3 pieces of his story are completed, in Scarwood, Iron Pine, and Stillmoor. There are no notoriety requirements or other achievements needed. I have just made some changes that will shorten the delay between completing all three quests and getting the reward in the mail. The final quests in each of the three story arcs are: "The Last Command" (Scarwood Reach), "One Soldier to Another" (Iron Pine Peak), and "Past Is Prologue" (Stillmoor). Third, while making the above changes, I did find a bug that would cause the Sanctum Messenger that gives the quest "Past Is Prologue" in Thalin Tor to not spawn. This has also been fixed. Once this fix is Live, if you have been trying to find this Messenger, return to the steps in front of Thalin Tor, and she should appear. Until then, going to Thalin Tor immediately after a server reset increases your odds of making the Messenger show up. Fourth, even though it is not directly related to the title of Sir or Dame, there has also been some question about the essence rewards of Necrotic Rage or Necrotic Semblance. These are also rewards related to the Marshal Kain story (and as such, are Guardian only rewards as well) and are given sometimes after the completion of the Iron Pine Peak arc of the Marshal Kain story. I say sometimes because the conditions under which we sent the essence were a bit convoluted and the net result was that a player could easily block themselves from getting this reward depending on where they went after Iron Pine (mainly, going to Stillmoor before Shimmersand would prevent the player from getting this mail). We were unsatisfied with the result of this, and I recently made some changes there as well. When this change goes Live, any player that has completed the Iron Pine arc of Marshal Kain's story will be offered a quest to get one of these essences from Sergeant Coda in Thalin Tor if they have not already been sent the mail from Sir Martyn Myrsol. These changes still need to be tested and verified before being scheduled for going Live, so I do not know what the timeframe is for rolling out these changes onto the servers. Hopefully this will clarify things a bit. Cheers, Tacitus.
