Renown catchup is the only alt friendly thing in the game, capped late last week and today i am 22 on my new monkRaid/dungeon/pvp renown is ridiculous rare though, most of extra renown came from callings.Sadly that is where the alt friendlyness of the expansion ends, good luck getting into decent m+ in an alt now that everyone demands 210 for a +7
I hope I can get enough to finish the campaign story, I couldn't play all last week so I hope I don't get left behind cos I've been loving the story.
You can get unlucky with the catch-up to the point where you think you're playing a different game to others. Only 2 out of the past 9 callings for me awarded renown on a new alt, whereas a friend got one every time. Also got none from any of the Bolvar questline (so far), nor from the dungeons I did. I've been stuck at Renown 10 for a few days, unable to progress with the campaign.They should at least add Torghast as another potential source.
Yeah. It's not the game that's unfriendly, it's the players. You can easily get ilvl 197 on 9 slots by just playing the story campaign and collecting anima.What's alt unfriendly is the conduits system, soul Ash cap and the venari rep. Gearing isn't imo.
I read through this and the guide, didn't find anything on the Souls and Anima quest soft locking you out of catching up tho. Basically you should NOT turn these in until you've gotten max catch up for the week, or else you will be 2 Renown behind no matter.
There appears to be problem with Catch Up IF you done your weekly quests before catching up. You are capped at 2 points below the maximum, because Renown Catch UP cap does assume you haven't done your weeklies.
I just wanted to add something to the source of renown drops. I leveled 2 alts using threads of fate. I spam dungeons and when I hit 60 I hadn't fill the bars for the 4 quests, "reinforcing xxx Covenant". I then filled the bars by doing world quests and each of the four sends you to oribos to turn in and get a 100% renown level as a reward. so if any of you hit 60, don't abandon these quests as they will help you catch up :)
Still doesn't explain why I was once stuck a week behind, while at the same time another char was stuck several weeks behind. I did everything else, but for those two the renown catch up just stopped giving me anything, on any activity.
If you catch up on your renown and save anima you can buy/upgrade gear to 184+ (depending on your story campain) and get kitted for mythic+ directly. :)Think the cap got raised to 200, unsure how much anima it cost to upgrade to that. not all gear pieces but most of them.
Running M+ dungeons will sometimes give you Renown, but I'm not sure if they always do
I don't even know how to get renown, because I don't even remember being explained to me in-game in the 1st place.
Still a bit confusing, am I suppose to leave this week's renown quests alone until I hit 22 on my alt?. I got to 14 last Saturday and no callings or mythic dungeons gave any renown afterwards (no outstanding quests).
