Earned the title, "<Hand of A'dal>".

N [70R] The Vials of Eternity and N [70R] A Distraction for Akama

The title Hand of A'dal was introduced in Patch 2.4.0 and was available to players who complete, or have completed, the attunement quests for Mount Hyjal (The Vials of Eternity) and Black Temple ([Medallion of Karabor]). Like Champion of the Naaru (the other attunement reward title), this will appear after the player's name, so it will appear something like this:

<Name>, Hand of A'dal

According to Eyonix, it will not be available to players beyond level 70 in the new expansion, Wrath of the Lich King, to prevent easy access to the title.[1] This has been clarified by Tigole, who says that the title will not be available once patch 3.0.X arrives. [2]

On October 15 2008, Blizzard introduced Patch 3.0.2 which removed this title and the Champion of the Naaru, for reasons stated above. Players who earned the titles prior to Patch 3.0.2 still have the option to use it and the quest lines are still available, but they offer no title.

Note: Players who already had the final quest for either title at the time of 3.0.2 are still eligible to receive the title as long as they have never dropped the quest.[3]
