  1. Complete the Legion archaeology quest chain that begins in Dalaran (Broken Isles) with Academic Exploration (when it comes up) to acquire the Key to Nar'thalas Academy.
  2. Then use the Key to Nar'thalas Academy at the Academy in Azsuna in the room where you've completed the many Academy quests (door to the left, when walking in).
  3. Go talk to Elya Azuremoon and challenge her to a duel (it recommends a group of 10 players, but she can be easily soloed).
  4. Beat her and you receive the title Headmaster/Headmistress.
  5. There's no need to complete the other quests the NPCs offer you in that room - just get to Elya and beat her.

For anyone who's curious, this title is -not- account-wide. You have to do it on every character that you want it on.

By Veleran on 17 Jan 2017 (Patch 7.1.5 )

Got this today 18/01/17.
Used the "Key to Nar'thalas Academy" (archaeology reward) inside the academy in Azsuna and phased into the "time-lost" version.
I talked to Instructor Nidriel and did all 12 of the runes.
I talked to Sythorne and did all 9 book fights.
This allowed me to walk up to the headmistress and "duel" her.
Defeating her gave me the Headmaster title.

for proof

This page says the title is account wide, but I do not have it on my other characters.

By dinerbr on 17 Jan 2017 (Patch 7.1.5 )

Btw you can do the senior runes and the 10man fights directly instead of doing all of them, that can save you some time!
By Goldentauren13 on 17 Jan 2017 (Patch 7.1.5 )

which is the achievement associated with this tittle?
By Veleran on 18 Jan 2017 (Patch 7.1.5 )

I was not awarded any achievement. Just the title. I also could not do the end fights or runes straight away. I had to unlock them by doing the lower ranks.
By Etirion on 18 Jan 2017 (Patch 7.1.5 )

I got the title after just dueling her, didnt need to do any runes or stuff.
By eugenelabaleine on 20 Jan 2017 (Patch 7.2.0 )

Just got this title after dueling the headmistress, no other things are required. Soloed it with my veng DH, it was quite long but did not loose any HP.

By doomslug on 22 Jan 2017 (Patch 7.2.0 )

Fun fact about this title: you can get it for friends!

If you form a party with folks who lack a key, gather together in the classroom, and pop your key, it phases the entire group over! Everyone can the do the various activities, including the headmistress battle. Anyone who kills her gets title, even folks without the key! Blizz handled this really well - it felt great to help my friends get a shiny new thing =D.

By Nulgar on 04 Jun 2017 (Patch 7.2.5 )

Phew, that's great for my alts!

By Marilana on 19 Jan 2017 (Patch 7.2.0 )

Does this convert to Headmistress for female characters? If not it's a damn shame.

By akueria on 19 Jan 2017 (Patch 7.2.0 )

Just finished it on a female character and it does indeed give you the 'Headmistress' title.

By iceman8721 on 19 Jan 2017 (Patch 7.2.0 )

you dont need to complete the runes or book. you can talk directly to her and duel. easily solo-ed.

By xamo on 19 Jan 2017 (Patch 7.2.0 )

Not true. If I ask her for a duel she says I should spend more time with all the other trainers before dueling her. *EDIT: I had to kill the 3-requires-10-people-bosses, then I was able to duel her
By Aluminum on 20 Jan 2017 (Patch 7.2.0 )

Confirmed, walked straight up to her and the option was available. Brain dead easy for a tank spec. Being flagged as eligible might be related to doing the quest chain there and/or having done the world quest before.
By Devious05 on 21 Jan 2017 (Patch 7.2.0 )

I've done all the quests in Azuna, walked right up to her and was able to duel
By snafu23uk on 05 Mar 2017 (Patch 7.2.0 )

If you have previously done the Academy of Nar'Thalas quests then you don't have to do them again to get to the duel stage. Otherwise you have to go through all of the earlier phases.

By Dimhiriel on 18 Jan 2017 (Patch 7.1.5 )

you just need to defeat the headmistress Elya Azuremoon in a duel after using the key you got from archeology.
they recommend 10players to fight, but with a warlock destruction I was able to solo her just with the big blue tanking pet.
she's not really that hard, just annoying as a caster because of her spell that will bump you in the air if you don't run away to avoid it.
when you have her around 10% HP, she's gonna run in the middle of the room and disappear after giving you the "headmistress/headmaster" title.
I can't see any other reward there.
you can play with the runes and summon mobs from the book, recommended 3 or 10 players are really not accurate. it's really easy to solo.

By Arhippa on 18 Jan 2017 (Patch 7.1.5 )

MM hunter with lone wolf, managed to solo her as well. You can use the pillars to LoS most of the casts, makes it rather easy as ranged with instants. DIdn't need to do any of the runes/books, just talked to her and had the option to duel - I've done the WQs for the runes and books plenty of times though.
By Dairystyle on 19 Jan 2017 (Patch 7.2.0 )

862 Ret Paladin easily soloable although I did have the extra bonus of Prydaz to soak damage in addition to Shield of Vengeance I don't think anyone who has a decent amount of movement or healing will have a lot of trouble.
By wisedada on 03 Jun 2018 (Patch 8.0.1 )

Big blue tanking pet...such a precise and professional statement that being said, I like it!

By Mundis on 19 Jan 2017 (Patch 7.2.0 )

Finished all the runes and just could not finish the big outer circle on the senior fire rune. Probably spent close to 10 minutes trying to.

Only to find out you can simply walk up to the headmistress and duel her without completing the books and runes.

By xamo on 19 Jan 2017 (Patch 7.2.0 )

Not true. If I ask her for a duel she says I should spend more time with all the other trainers before dueling her. *EDIT: I had to kill the 3-requires-10-people-bosses, then I was able to duel her
By AliceInAcidland on 19 Jan 2017 (Patch 7.2.0 )

Senior fire rune is impossible to finish as a female Blood Elf. I needed to turn into Gamon to finish that one.
By Slythistle on 31 Jul 2017 (Patch 7.3.0 )

I thought I was going nuts. This f!dwarf couldn't manage it.

By lothie on 28 Jul 2017 (Patch 7.3.0 )

Not only can you get this title for friends if you have the key, but they can be ANY LEVEL. I now have the title on a level 2 gnome priest.

1. Have a mage portal the lowbie to Broken Isles Dalaran.
2. Take the lowbie on a 2 person mount (or equivalent) to Narthalas Academy.
3. The lowbie CANNOT ENTER the door to the classroom. But if you have a Swapblaster, you can blast them in! You might have to play around a little before you can enter the room yourself after that. The way we did it, the key was on one toon while the swapblaster was on the other, so we switched in the one with the swapblaster, swapped the lowbie inside the door, then switched back to the toon with the key. So walk in with swapblaster (not in group), position lowbie and swapper, group, then swap, drop group, switch to other toon. This is what worked for us.
4. Go down the stairs into the classroom. Have the lowbie stay well away from the Headmistress, because otherwise they'll be one-shot and exit the phasing.
5. Kill the Headmistress (easy to solo). The lowbie will now have the title.

By popecrunch on 28 Jul 2017 (Patch 7.3.0 )

Hi! I was the other person in this endeavor. It seemed to be very important that the swapper and the lowbie NOT BE GROUPED while the swapper was passing through the door - there's an invisible bunny that sits on the threshhold and seems to repel any character that hasn't completed the intro quest (or anyone in a group with someone who hasn't). Furthermore, if the lowbie bumps into the bunny and gets repelled, that'll bugger things up so you'll need to drop group and /reload before the swapper can get line of sight. (The door will look open, but 'act' closed.) Enjoy!

By Rakenessaa on 23 Jan 2017 (Patch 7.2.0 )

Solo'd as a holy priest. Keep moving out of stuff on the ground, dispel yourself as soon as she finishes casting "Mass Slow". It's like a dance, took about 7 minutes.

By Creaky on 28 Jul 2017 (Patch 7.3.0 )

With two persons both completing all senior runes was enough to challenge Elya to a duel. She wouldn't duel us before we had completed those. The requirement for how many activities needs to be completed seems to scale with group size.

By Fonzy on 18 Jan 2017 (Patch 7.1.5 )

Just solo'd this as an 869 Ret Pally.

The rune tracing is easy, so no tips there.

The drawing fights are all solo-able, although YMMV depending on your class and whether or not you can heal and/or have an NPC helper who can tank. I used Vindicator Boros and he was mostly helpful on the Headmistress fight and for a couple of the others, although he did not hold threat for me on the Blue Dragonfight 10-man fight. The trick for all these fights is to keep moving, don't stand in the fire, use pillars to LOS, and manage your cooldowns effectively. I imagine as gear levels get high in coming patches this will become more and more trivial to solo.

By nissi on 27 Jan 2018 (Patch 7.3.5 )

Yeah I know ... 7.3.5 and all...
Returning player. 1 day old 110. Saw the quest was up for the key and did it.

Took me all 3 senior runes plus 2 3player and 1 10 player book to get her to duel me. The duel was long but not overly painful as a Moonkin Druid with Broll bear tanking. With only Regrowth as a heal (and I did need it) it was a little pita. If I talented into Resto it would have probably been a much easier cakewalk.

By sadistic12345 on 21 Jan 2018 (Patch 7.3.5 )

/wowg/ will now research for this title

By borek921 on 27 Jan 2017 (Patch 7.2.0 )

This would look bad on male characters...
