Guild reputation can be gained by turning in quests, killing PvE bosses in a guild group, or PvPing in a guild group.

The Entitled: Guide to All Titles
2013/12/08 at 11:35 AM
This guide covers all the titles in WoW from the serious to the silly, organized by topic and linked to their achievement and basic source details. Collecting titles became easier in Mists of Pandaria with account-wide titles and achievement progress.
In Mists of Pandaria, many titles became account-wide, meaning alts can use titles they haven't individually earned as long as they're at the minimum level it could be acquired at. For example, a level 80 alt could wear
<Name>, Death's Demise
if another character on the account earned it.
Only a handful of titles aren't account-wide, most notably RBG titles,
of the Shattered Sun
The other major change was account-wide progress on meta-achievements like
What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been
. Players can work on holiday, PvP, and raid meta-achievements across characters now, instead of repeating the achievements on any character that needed the rewards.
A few notable exceptions include

Still, players can purchase a
