The Best Renown Farm Method

Recommended Posts

BfbmqZo.jpg
 

Here's quite a tip if you need a whole lot or just a little Renown on an alt, after swapping Covenants, or as you're coming back from some time off, as there's a pretty new and extremely efficient method to check out.

A recent hotfix introduced Renown as a drop from Torghast floor completions, and while it mentioned higher floors have higher changes of it dropping, there's a very specific sweet spot that makes farming even very large quantities of it quick and rewarding. As spotted by helonight, it seems layer 5 is the absolute best spot to get as much catchup Renown as you want (up to a point), as they actually managed to get from 1 to 30 in around 5 hours using this method! Now the drops are still random and not quite 100% on layer 5 (as the drop chance decreases the higher you get in Renown), so the overall tip is to just do whichever 5+ floor you can do really fast with your gear (and we've seen some insanely fast Torghast clears recently, so since you're not looking for any kind of completion score, you can do it pretty fast too). Which layer you want will depend on your Renown level as well, so you may have to increase the layer at later levels, but 9 seems to be a 100% drop for a long time (up until 45 or so).

Here are some additional comments from other players, some of which had to increase the layer above 5, and some even getting the lower Renown levels from layers 1 and 2!

I did this up to 36 renown. You have to increase the level though. Run layer 5 until around 10 or so. Layer 6 till 15, layer 7 until 20, layer 8 until 28, then layer 9 until it doesn't give you one.

These numbers aren't exact as I wasn't tracking it while I did it, I just went to the next floor when I didn't receive one. They are pretty close though. Also the majority of time spent is running, so increasing difficulty early so you don't waste a run not getting renown will end up saving time. - Raidenwins75
...
Yep, after 3x renown, it is much harder to drop. So farming in Torghast should start at lv1. There is no cap if you have done all the main quests and below renown time gated cap current 57lv - helonight
...
If you're a rogue or a druid and you have Blessings. There's one that gives you +75% movement speed out of combat.The blessings change each day, but are the same for the full day.
Layer 1&2 doesn't have elites, so no stealth detection. The further from renown cap you have, the larger chance for them to drop.
A run takes a bit under 2 min, depending on the layout.
Got 14 renown the first ~hour, including downtime and stuff. Then got 18 the next hour where I optimized a bit. - MRosvall
...
yeah i went layer 9 1-43 at 100% drop rate when the cap was 54 and then the campaign finished me off, i started at layer 7 but randomly didn't get one drop at like 23 renown so i went to 9 - bigmanorm


I'm definitely doing this on my next alt, but full disclosure, I'm one of those weirdos who actually LIKES Torghast and would very much like to see it iterated upon in future expansions.

Replying to that whimsical last line, i don't hate torghast, i just hate being forced into it. Wow's at its best when there's fun variety of content and difficulty and you take your pick. Torghast being the only way to farm leggos makes it feels like a chore, fast.

As a rogue, I hate Torghast with a passion I usually reserve for seafood.  Consequently, I've timed out on this expansion pretty much, hop in and level alts occasionally, or do new patch content briefly, but that's it.  Just can't bring myself to cancel the sub and wave bye bye to my main and alts though.

While I share your seafood emotions, I just can't hate Torghast! It definitely has quite a few flaws but I feel it can be so much better if they work on it for the next expansions and don't just abandon it like the did garrisons. That was the perfect example of a REALLY good potential feature if it had been iterated on (and no, class halls don't count), but the hate they got from the community (for somewhat in-community reasons no less) just killed it completely. We could have had real, well-made player housing dammit! So yea, while I can certainly see why people dislike Torghast, despite not feeling that way myself, I REALLY think it could be great for everyone if we gave it another chance down the line. But I somehow doubt that will happen.

I changed from Kyrian to Night Fae the other day on my hunter and had to regrind from about 45 renown (after callings and world bosses) up to 56 (as I had the weekly anima quest). Decided to spam Layer 7's to see how it went. I basically stealthed through everything, killed the end boss and spent about an average of 1 minute per floor. From the runs that I did, I would say that I got renown every 1 out of 3 runs, but only spent about 6-7 minutes per run. Was a super easy  and quick way to farm renown.

      A calm week in Mythic+, where we see Windwalker move up in its weakest bracket and Fire actually see a drop anywhere, while Subtlety has a very good week and might be ready to dethrone the eternal blue king.
      Note: The logs are based on POINTS, and not actual damage or healing, meaning they log the timed completion for the specs, with higher keys getting more points, obviously. The time in which the dungeon is completed is also a factor, but a much, much smaller one, as it grants very few points if you do it significantly faster than just any in-time completion. We're also using the Normalized Aggregate Scores numbers, for clarity, meaning the top spec is marked as 100 and then the rest are ranked in relation to that peak point.
      This past week was Tyrannical, Bolstering, Explosive (and Tormented).
      All Keys
      Windwalkers return to the top 3, correcting their drop from last week while Subtlety actually comes much closer to Fire's eternal throne. Arcane rises two into the top 5, pushing Affliction and Balance down, as Shadow sees the biggest movement in the high percentiles, jumping 4 into 8th. Marksmanship drops one and Havoc gets in-between the Warriors in the middle of the pack , as the bottom 5 remain the same, with Retribution dropping to dead last.

      Mythic+ All Keys 95th Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      The all percentages bracket is starting to look more like the 95th, as Subtlety takes 2nd place here as well, but Affliction is still doing a lot better and keeps its 3rd place at least. Arcane is doing even better here compared to last week, jumping 4 into 6th, while Fury dropped 3 spots seeing Havoc, Unholy and Survival pass it in the middle of the pack.

      Mythic+ All Keys All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      High Keys
      Fire hasn't managed to take over the +15s quite yet and the standings remain the same in the top 5, but 6th sees a big change as Havoc moves there, rising 2 spots. Survival and Assassination are the next to rise, 3 and 4 spots respectively, as Fury drops 3. All the specs are incredibly close in the 15s still, so even the bottom of the pack is doing really well here.

      Mythic+15 All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      Windwalker retains its No.1 spot in the 20ies and Fire actually drops a space, as Subtletly had a really good week across all keys it seems. Arms and Arcane both moved up, with the Warrior spec surpassing the Mage along the way. Havoc jumped 3 spots and almost made it to the top 5, while Assassination was the biggest mover, rising a whole 7 spots into 8th!
      Mythic+20 All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
       
      For even more in-depth data for each individual key head on over to Warcraft Logs. And if you're interested in more info on the specs themselves you can always check out our class guides or our extensive Mythic+ guides as well, which have tier lists, dungeon rankings and more.
