I still have all four of the Tier 4 guests to get to Best Friend rank, but those are the final ones for me. This holiday will probably get me two of those four, and pretty close on a third one. I was holding off on Ember Court this week in anticipation of the holiday giving a buff like this.
Read at least one poster saying they wouldn't do Ember Court again until it gets buffed. Why would Ember Court need to be buffed? This is by far one of the EASIEST Covenant things to do - especially compared to the Kyrian Path of Ascension. Sure, you can only do it once per week, so obviously it's going to take a while to get all the rep maxed, but it's not hard & isn't something that takes you hours to do unless you use a lot of those items that extend the time by 1 min & that would take a LOT of those to get your court to go for hours. Once you reach max rep w/one you never have to go back to do the invitation quest for that one again, not to mention you even have a soulbind that practically guarantee's you success. The fact that it's the only Covenant that gets these little boosts during certain Holiday Events makes it even easier. Relax. Unwind. Enjoy. =)
I've already done this weeks Ember court and I'm two weeks away from finishing all best friends. Maybe with this buff I could be finished next week!
I love Ember Court :) Its an optional thing to do in the game, so I dont understand why so many people complain about it taking time.Its nice to do 1 per week, you really try to max it out as you cant do it more then once and in the end you only get cosmetics anyway :)I started it a bit later due to it being on an alt, so currently 3/21 into revered and some progress on the different guests. It feels nice to do this 20min event and get a lot of rep in the end when you have done a good job :)Compared to the Necrolord Covenant Special (Necro main) this is so much more fun!
Now as Brewfest is live.Anyone found it ? Will it just appear inside the ember court? Or do you need to do something conected to brewfest first?
I just did the Ember Court and the cauldrons for this buff are there. They are scattered about the court.
There are cauldrons inside the scenario that you can click on to gain a stack (max 20) of extra happiness for all guests. There was also a "toast" extra action button that awarded extra happiness for one guest. I ended up with 22k per guest (all were elated).
You know what annoys me off about the ember court? yey, 300 percent buff to rep for your guests. but somehow there will be another 20 guests you have no idea were invited. a while ago during the easter buff there was a 300 percent buff and for the two people i had showing up i now have them as a best friend. which means exactly squat cos they wont give you anything. shadowlands is basically defined as a long series of grindy tasks that allow you to grind out another long series of tasks. without ever getting anywhere. im sick to death of stealing that horse for the countess. at some point someone has to notice im not who i say i am...
Can't do %^&* for other covs? Like rare souls for Night Fae?
Ember Court is great. I'm done with all guest reps for many weeks now and I don't see a problem with this taking half a year overall. It doesn't take much time as such since you do it once a week, it's just a fun, optional side event with easy progress over time. The holiday buffs are making it even more fun.The improvements for alts are very welcome though, since I will want to earn the other 3 transmog sets (cloth, mail, plate) as well.
I had collected 11 cauldrons then I noticed my buff was gone. I never died, so one of the activities I did cleared it. It might have been the one where you get tossed high in the air to collect anima using a parasol. Or it might have been the one where you do the atoning ritual on souls. Pissed me off to hell because you only get one shot at this and I only ended up with 9 stacks.The cauldrons should re-spawn after awhile even if your stacks cap out at 20. Piece of crap game design, so frustrating!
I've been saving my ember court since the start of the expac
The same people that will complain about Blizzard "not adding fun stuff thats not tied to power" lol
For venthyr, if it is your 'main character' of that covenant, then try upgrading it at least to rank 4 ASAP, to unlock all 4 slots for the npcs (2 common, 1 rare and 1 epic) and so that you start sooner farming for all reps.
There are way more than 20 cauldrons spread around, even if you get a full 20 then die, there should be more to pick up. I haven't died yet w/this buff but have been told that several of them will be clickable again after a while. Last weeks court & this week's court pushed 2 of my last 4 to Best Friend status. Should be able to get in 2 more Courts before Brewfest ends so that should complete my "friends" lvl'ing. I did not start doing Ember Court until two months after release of SL since my Venthyr wasn't my main. The Ambassador's Reserves help make it more enjoyable & less stressful. What else do you have to spend all your rubies on? =)
