I'm thinking that this list should only include users where they have opened the server, NOT where they have transferred to. From the title, it seems like the most logical choice. This should make the whole list more accurate and informative. Any opinions? --Sam Weber 13:49, 10 October 2006 (EDT)
I agree, and I also would like to point out that I removed the fake note associated with my name as the Scepter Holder on Steamwheedle Cartel ( it said that it was a transferred character that opened the gate, not somebody from the server.) Transfers to my realm were not available until the Gates of AQ were opened, which happened on the 6th of august 2006. --Teliviel 1st November 2006
This page doesn't list zangarmarsh's scarab lord. Mr.X8 21:20, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

I am not sure who the scepter holder on Cenarion Circle is (I am reasonably certain that he has transferred to another server along with much of his guild), but I do know that it was not a tauren druid named Hiddendragon. The opening of Ahn'Qiraj on our server was performed by the Alliance guild Heaven and Earth. ~Arcanum Zero 11:44, 14 March 2008 (EST)
Exodar server Edit
This server is in there twice, with two 'names' from the same guild (Oath) listed. Exodar Alliance Whitebrow (a) Oath (a) Exodar Alliance Alexio (a) Oath (a)
'Whitebrow' edited the article a while back.
I've been playing since AQ was opened on Mannoroth, and I'm pretty sure it was Tryphon who opened the gates. It was kind of hard to tell, what with the 300v300 PVPing and server crashing going on. They both probably deserve mention.

Automated transfer of Problem Report #11253 Edit
The following message was left by Bunnikins via PR #11253 on 2008-06-26 12:16:58 UTC
I don't want to edit myself, for fear of screwing it up. For Ysera...there were more scepter holders, and the one listed wasn't the one to open it, he was just one that was among many that had competed scepters. Others were Bunnikyns, Trinitty, Nethershadow. I know there were two more, but I can't find their names.
- I already fixed this one. 12:58, 16 August 2008 (UTC)
That is correct. Harmony and Valafar are probably the two names that Bunny is trying to recall. I was, and still am, the only server native Scarab Lord (Sparc). All others transferred to Ysera with the Scepter of the Shifting Sands quest in varying stages of completion. A quick perusal of the USYsera Wiki page explains how the gates were ninja opened by an eBayed toon (Valafar) that was subsequently permanently banned by Blizzard. The guilds that transferred to Ysera were very generous in allowing a server native to finish the quest chain.
So far the only sure way to verify a scepter holder appears to be the <Scarab Lord> on the characters armory page. Since alot of characters have been abandoned or somehow lost with the Battle.net changeover, it makes it hard to verify historical Scepter holders. I also noticed some characters listed appear to be races that didn't exist at the time of the opening, so I assume their listings are either wrong, they changed races, or they are on a newer server that allowed the event to happen after Burning Crusade. -- (talk · contr) 18 Apr 2011 1:15 PM Pacific
- As far as I know, the armory does not lie, so I will start removing listings for characters who have an armory entry, but don't have the achievement. They shouldn't be added back without some kind of proof. -- (talk · contr) 18 Apr 2011 1:52 PM Pacific
Variuz -Norgannon - none listed - is a scarab lord
