The latest and greatest Cataclysm beta build includes a list of new titles available in the game. We don't yet know exactly how we'll gain access to these titles, but we're certainly free to speculate. Probably most exciting to players is the return of the PvP titles.
  • Assistant Professor
  • Associate Professor
  • Hero of the Alliance
  • Hero of the Horde
  • Ishmael
  • Professor
  • Veteran of the Alliance
  • Veteran of the Horde
  • The old PvP battleground titles have been brought back.
The old PvP titles from vanilla WoW were earned mostly through time investment rather than strictly win/loss ratio and were required to get access to better tiers of PvP gear. The battleground titles were scrapped in The Burning Crusade but are now returning with the introduction of rated battlegrounds. The titles will now be based on your win/loss ratio, rather than grinding time. The old PvP titles were:

Alliance
  • Private
  • Corporal
  • Sergeant
  • Master Sergeant
  • Sergeant Major
  • Knight
  • Knight-Lieutenant
  • Knight-Captain
  • Knight-Champion
  • Lieutenant Commander

  • Marshal
  • Field Marshal
  • Grand Marshal
Horde
  • Scout
  • Grunt
  • Sergeant
  • Senior Sergeant
  • First Sergeant
  • Stone Guard
