    Flirtatious
    You get this from "Quantity Over Quality" achievement in World Events -> Mariel-Taun Day. This happens in the week of Valentine's Day so you'll have to wait till next year unless you find someone who still has the Love Bug and is willing to help you out. Will take a while though because I'm sure you need to spread the Love Bug to 25 unique players.

    Tidelord
    If you're a Guardian you'll get this at some point during The Saga of the Abyssal (the quest series to get your Crocnard mount). Complete Act One of the Saga of the Abyssal to obtain this title. Not sure how high a level you need to complete the first act.

    Firelord
    Complete Act Three of the Saga of the Wanton Maw quest-chain. Not sure if you can complete this under 50 as I'm pretty sure some of the mobs are at Level 50 or 52 (or it could be one of those 'adjustable' mobs that adjusts with your level; unsure).

    Counselor
    This is obtained from Summerfest for 100 Summerfest Badges and 1 Summerfest Friendship Bracelet. (or 9 Credits) via Cash Shop -> World Event -> Summerfest. Just untick everything other than "Title" category for easy navigation to the title.

    Castaway
    If you are Guardian, you get this by reaching Glorified with The Farclan (one of the two factions on Ember Isle; old pre-SL Level 50 end-game content island with Level 52 mobs).

    Sir/Dame
    If you are a Guardian, you get this during or shortly after completing the questchain that involves Kain. I think this is something that ends just before Level 50 (can't 100% recall, but Kain's quests include Scarwood Reach and IPP at the very least). You'll get sent in-game mail shortly after you complete the questchain with the title.

    Grim
    This was gained by participating in one part of the World Event that led to the opening of River of Souls (pre-SL Tier 1 20-man raid) back in March of 2011. You can't gain this anymore as it is a Legacy Achievement reward.

    Fae Master
    You'll receive this in the mail after completing Conqueror: Greenscale's Blight (the raid version, not the chronicle). It's a Level 50 raid.

    Death Master
    You'll receive this in the mail after completing Conqueror: River of Souls (raid version). It's a Level 50 raid.

    Tide Master
    You'll receive this in the mail after completing Conqueror: Hammerknell Fortress (raid version). It's a Level 50 raid.

    Inferno Master
    You'll receive this in the mail after completing Conqueror: Infernal Dawn (raid version). It's a Level 50 raid.

    Royal Assassin
    You'll get this after completing the meta achieve "Royal Assassin" that involves completing 4 achievements in Primeval Feast (a Level 50 10-man Sliver/Raid). Achieve is found under Raids -> Primeval Feast.

    Constable, Captain, Colonel, Brigadier, Freelancer, Marshall, Major, Lieutenant, Sergeant, Warlord, Mercenary, Corporal, Myrmidon
    These are titles rewarded for achieving certain milestones in PvP prestige rank. These are the Guardian ones - besides Warlord and Myrmidon I think the Defiant ones are different.

    Stormbringer
    This was part of the $120 "Storm Chaser" deal bundle that was made available prior to Storm Legion launching that gave players access to Storm Legion + 1yr subscription + other stuff. As such, unless they decide to put it up in the Cash Shop or reintroduce it somehow - you probably won't be able to get this.

    Detective
    This is gained by being one of the first 10-30 people to successfully take and post a screenshot of themselves obtaining an item during a Scavenger Hunt community event. Here's an example of such an event: http://community.riftgame.com/en/201...80%9D-title-7/
    These used to happen quite often but it's been months since I last recall a Scavenger Hunt occuring so perhaps Trion have forgotten/removed them/no longer doing them. This may or may not be obtainable in the future.

    Specialist
    This was awarded during a special Conquest weekend event where we fought the Devs for titles. The top crafters and gatherers (not sure how many, maybe top 50?) in Conquest for each day of the event were given "Specialist [playername]" prefixes.
    This title could appear in future PvP-related events. I don't recall them ever saying it would be a one-time title.
    http://community.riftgame.com/en/201...ht-the-devs-2/

    Prime Hunter
    You gain this from completing every single Great Hunt and Hunt Rift in the game (i.e., complete the "Great Hut Rank VI" Achievement). This is a Level 50+ achieve as the Hunt Rifts and Great Hunt Rifts are accessible in the Storm Legion zones.

    Colossal
    Complete all the Defeat collosi (zone event bosses) in each pre-SL Zone. As such it's a Level 50 and under achieve.

    Electrician
    For completing "Short Circuit" achievement, which is a Puzzle in Ardent Domain (Storm Legion, Level 50+ zone).

    Burglar
    Completing the "It Belongs in a Museum!" achievement by completing a small artifact set. The artifacts are obtained in the opposing faction's capital city. That said, they are so easy to obtain that - at least pre-SL - they were selling for small change.

    ------

    There's more than likely more than the above - especially special titles during special Rift Community-funded events. The above are just the ones that I have.
    I'd personally love to find out about all the other ones. Unfortunately like you mentioned, some of the titles that the databases show sound like prefixes but are in fact suffixes. There's a huge abundance of suffixes. Would love Trion to add more prefixes.

    Just want to add that if you ever switch your faction you will retain any titles you had from your previous faction. I recently switched to defiant after 2 years as a Guardian and still have all of my prefix and suffix I had plus the new ones for being a Defiant.

    Jonus, thanks a lot, there's a lot of good information there.

    That's good to know. I noticed that there's a Defiant Prefix "Timelord". So, in theory, I should be able to switch to Defiant, get that, then switch back,should I so choose.

    Well, I had a thousand credits spare, so I'm now a Councillor, but I can't for the life of me get into Meridian. I can't get around the mountains to sneak in (if that's even possible), and all the guards seem to be level 52, meaning I can't just hoss it in there.

    roll a defiant alt..it'd be easier. it's just like sanctum to a defiant - heavily guarded and can't sneak in (guards have stealth detect)

    This one at least tells you whether the title is a suffix or a prefix, and almost all of the achievement links are valid. Now, the achievement pages themselves simply regurgitate the in-game information, like almost all the wiki pages for this game seem to, but then Rifthead sometimes has comments which give you actual information.

    But it's all rather a long-winded way to go about finding information. There's at least 3 separate wikis for this game, and none of them really tell you much of anything about anything. So I thought I'd ask the people who actually play the game.

    That wiki actually is the best for titles thus far, both prefixes and suffixes, though there are some that are not listed. PvP title "The Rebellious" for example is obtained by killing a dev during a PvP match a long time ago. "Disposable Hero" also is a PvP title for beta testing WFs. Etc.

    That seems like cheating. I want to either do it properly, or not at all.

    It's not cheating - even in "the other game" PvE servers where cross faction accounts are allowed you can mail to your alts. I hated the Bear Flank recipes with a passion.

    I don't mean cheating in the sense of being against the rules, I mean cheating in the sense of being against the spirit of what I want to achieve. If I'm going to get such a title, then I want to earn it. If I get it by creating an alt, then it's not worth having.

    Go up from the Stonefield side then drop over near the entrance to area where Artifacts are, think I died 3 times getting inside. Once in the area where the elevators are you will be pretty safe, not many NPC's there agro you.

    If you're looking for hard, go get the Defiant Burglar the old school way running around Sanctum while level 50 or below. It was quite the corpse drag, especially with the ghost spawning in Freemarch...

    I tried this and died loads. Perhaps what I thought was the lift wasn't but, either way, being inside was no safer than being outside.

    I think I need to level up a bit before trying again. If every NPC can one-shot you, then it doesn't give you much of a chance.

    Another pre-title arrived. It's 'Rhubarb'.

    Just throw 25 Rhubarb Pies from the Mayhem event at people.

    If you're not willing to "cheat" to get it, then you're not going to be able to get it at your level without a couple (many) raids worth of friends to help you earn it.
    Fahrenheit and Celsius temperature scales have probably not been rationalized due to puritanical reasons. If the freezing point in both scales was 0, then body temperature would be 66.6F. If it was 32 degrees, body temperature would be 69C.

    Silly reason, no matter how you think of it.

    For the Saga quests - Abyssal, Wanton, Aelfwar/Endless ... no, you can't get the prefix titles in those before lvl 50. Most of the bosses in the quest chains leading up to the titles/achieves are elite 50s requiring multiple players to down. Level 60 players might be able to solo them, but lower level players (as in under 50) are not going to have much luck getting them.

    "Harbinger" was the only prefix I had for absolutely ages ... the earlier Mayhem event then gave me "Barrel Tosser". The previously mentioned raids and epic saga quests gave me all my other prefix titles. But I definitely only had Harbinger until around level 50.

    (Also, I am miffed that there isn't a Defiant counterpart to Sir/Dame. The Guardians have a much nicer title selection than Defiants, on the whole.)


    ...and if you drop into Meridian from the mountains by Stonefield, watch out for the Level 50 Abyssal cultists up there.
