Each character has the option to display, with their name, any one of the titles they have earned during their adventures in Middle-earth. Only one title may be displayed at any given time. Titles can be acquired in several different ways, such as by completing Deeds and Quests, mastering levels in a Crafting profession, or through social interaction (Emotes).
Titles available to the Character can be viewed in the Character Journal Panel by selecting the Title Tab.
- This panel lists all the Titles you have earned. You begin the game with one Heritage Title, referring to your homeland. As you adventure, you earn more fame, and thus more Titles. To display a Title so that others can see it, select it, then click Make Active. To remove a Title, select Clear Active. Titles can be changed at any time.
- By default no keyboard shortcut is defined for the Titles Panel, you can use "C" to display the Character Panel, and then select "Title button" from across the bottom.
- In the Titles Panel, you can "check" the box to display your Rank (from the Ettemoors) and your Surname when you toggle your name display on (N) -- Note that the "N" toggle simply controls what YOU see, not what others see.
- The sort order selection (Alphabetical or Newest First) controls the order WITHIN each of the xxx sections of titles:
- Slayer Deed
- Slayer Deed - Ancient Evil
- Slayer Deed - Beast
- Slayer Deed - Corrupted Nature
- Slayer Deed - Dragon-kind
- Slayer Deed - Evil Peoples
- Slayer Deed - Giant-kind
- Slayer Deed - Orc-kind
- Slayer Deed - Spiders and Insects
- Slayer Deed - The Dead
- Slayer Deed - Troll-kind
- In the Options / UI Settings panel under "Floating Information," you can select:
- My Character's Name
- Show Rank
- Show Surname
- Player Titles
- Player Kinships
When a new title is earned, an icon will appear in your "Alerts" window. Clicking on that icon will pop-up the Title panel with the just earned title highlighted.
