Something to ponder, What if those who achieve World First get credit for being the hero?Or another scenario, do it by server, lets say my 10man and I were first to kill epicmob001, wouldn't it be cool if NPCs in casual conversation mentioned our name at least?

That sounds all well and good on the surface, until you think about some of the names people choose.Do you really want to see the NPCs talking about the awesomeness of Ponkeyduncher for the rest of the game? Or the one time Asklhdfer saved the world?

"Thanks be to Imatanklol!"

"Hey, remember that time when Water Elemental killed Deathwing! Water Elemental is such a hero!"

Didn't some NPC's in Dalaran talk about you - using your name - in conversation with another NPC while you were in their vicinity? I seem to recall that happening after a long quest-line ended, or you dinged lvl80 perhaps? I need a warranty recall on this faulty memory of mine.

@FadminI believe once you hit exalted with Kirin Tor is when the Dalaran npcs mention and acknowledge you.

In Borean Tundra I believe, there was a short NPC conversation about the heroes joining the assault on the Frozen Throne. They didn't give names obviously, but referred to players by their titles, including "our illustrious Scarab Lord" (the player who opened AQ) and the "Hands of A'dal" (players who originally raided Black Temple).I guess it might add a bit of colour to include that sort of text elsewhere in the game too, the start of Northrend is the only time I've seen anything like it before.

I remember when Searing Totem IV became the champion of Ring of Blood. He's my hero, folks.
