Some pieces are still needed to be looted, but its way better than it have been before.For rings and trinkets I think timewalk week is a good source as well, cheap and easy to get since it scales down, so your current ilvl dont matter.you can always get rings and trinkets from pvp and upgrade them. they dont cost a lot of Honor.
Bolvar quests aren't giving renown btw, at least not up to Jaina.
Hold off on collecting souls from the Maw, if its possible for you to upgrade your quest from 5 to 10 before the end of the week. (or to 15, starting next week). The quest does change, at least when its not in your quest log.
"Completing various dungeon and PvP activities"...........Yeah, What PvP activities reward renown?
This has also happened to me. I can do any activity on the list and still remain a week behind in renown on my monk alt. She has always been Kyrian and never swapped covenants yet she still cannot become current.
It is so annoying that they don't just tell us specifically what does or doesn't give renown. I did two LFRs, a few dungeons, a Torghast run, and a few BGs today and I got one renown (I think?) from it, but I'm not even sure what I got it from. Like do normal dungeons not give renown? Or do heroics make it more likely? I see some places say Torghast does, others say it doesnt. Did I waste several hours on activities that won't give me renown? I want to catch up tomorrow, but I literally don't know what will/won't work, let alone what is more/less efficient. Really frustrating.
If you have already killed the world boss and decide to switch afterwards, you do not receive renown from killing it again.
I am honestly still a bit confused here.... So I leveld up a character before reset and now after reset I made all the story quests and ended up at Renown 20. Now I did finish the weekly quests from this week already (5 Souls, 1000 Anima) to reach the 20. Does this mean I am stuck now at 20 until next week? Or can I actually get some Renown from M0, PvP, etc. still and catch up to this weeks cap?
Blizzard should just make a post explaining everything that does give renown rather than having people spamming random content with their fingers crossed. The only consistent source seems to be the world boss.
They have to remove the RNG from 'catch-up' renown. Makes no sense that you are beholden to when the Calling RNG decide to grace you with that Renown you need to upgrade your covenant gear to finally manage to do actual end-game content.
idk what's going on but I recently changed covenant from Kyrian which was renown 22 to Night fae and now renown 9 was stuck at 7 until a daily calling had a renown reward, i've tried numerous activities like random dungeons on both difficulty, winning battlegrounds and still yet to receive another renown. Am I missing something here?
I just handed in a Bolvar quest which gave me soul ash - NO RENOWN! I would say boo but apparently the world boos do give renown so I can't
Biggest gripe about the catchup is how inconsistent it is.The RNG of drops is horrible and some people may confuse being unlucky with RNG to being locked or bugged.Blizzard needs to be a lot more clear with this or reward it consistently with every X amount of activities to avoid confusion.
