Stuck at Tier 14 Renown - Can't Figure Out Catchup Mechanics
Return to board index
So I'm on my main character, started about a month ago, and I'm currently stuck on the quest Blood from a Bone for the Necrolords, which says I need to reach Tier 17 Renown. I'm only Tier 14. Reading around on here and Icy-veins I've seen that you get locked out from progressing in the story on a weekly basis, but that there's catch-up mechanics. However, for the life of me I can't figure out how to progress renown through these catch-up mechanics.
I've been doing heroic LFG dungeons, Torgast runs, quests for Bolvar in Torghast, world quests, world bosses, etc. All of which I've been told frequently reward catch-up Renown, but none of which are dropping Emblems of Renown. I'm pretty sure next weeks weekly quests will give me at least 1 more Emblem, but does that mean I'm potentially locked out from progressing in my campaign for 3 weeks? That seems ridiculous.
So I feel like I have to be missing something. Is there something I have to do to unlock Renown Catch-up? Is there a way to tell for sure that I'm doing a catch-up Renown thingy? Does it just randomly drop and I've been unlucky for a week now? All of the guides I've read says pretty much, "it just happens." But no where have I seen any specifics of how, "it just happens." So I really have no idea what to do here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
For anyone that finds this with the same question. I've got a few answers just from playing.
It took 2 weeks, but I finally got an Emblem of Renown as a drop in Heroic LFG dungeons. It appears as a reward for doing the dungeon (not sure if it's for killing any boss or completing the dungeon specifically, I got mine on the final boss kill of the dungeon). It's not an item, it just shows an Emblem of Renown in your rewards that pop up, and your renown increases by 1 level.
My daily covenant callings also reward Emblems of Renown, but it seems to be about 1/3 of the time for me. For those that don't know, Covenant Callings are a daily quest that last 3 days. You can check what you have available by clicking on your covenant icon on your mini-map.
I've done some ranked PvP, but haven't won a single match, so no idea how the rewards work there. I also have never received an Emblem of Renown from a Bolvar quest, but would guess it would show as an available reward like the Covenant Callings.
