Diablo IV launches on 6th June and the game brings a lot of new features and formulas to the Diablo systems. One such system is the Renown system, which plays a massive part in everything you do in Sanctuary. Keep reading to learn all there is to know about the Renown system.
What is Renown in Diablo 4?
As mentioned above, Renown is one of the most important new systems when it comes to Diablo 4. It’s the core to the entire progression system of Diablo 4 and is designed around getting you to explore each of Sanctuary’s regions and offering powerful rewards. It can be likened to that of a reputation system often found in MMOs and is something that players should look to complete before moving on to the next region on that particular character.
Renown comes in five levels for each of the regions, and every time you reach a new level, you’ll obtain powerful rewards that are useful for both your current character and account. It will also persist across all of your characters, which means you won’t have to perform these tasks on any additional characters you create.
How to Earn Renown?
So now that you know what Renown is, you may be wondering how you go about obtaining it. You’ll be pleased to know that almost all activities you do in a given region will reward you some manner of Renown beyond the other rewards they offer. This means you’ll need to set out to complete nearly everything a region has in it if you want to score that max level Renown in a region and the powerful account-wide boosts they offer.
The table below gives you a breakdown of how much Renown to expect from each of the activities in a region:
|Altars of Lilith||10|
|Side Quest Completion||20|
As for how many you can expect of each activity, you can usually expect more than 60 areas to discover on the map, this is achieved by heading to a part of the map that is not uncovered yet. You can also expect more than 20+ Side Quests, Dungeons, and Altars of Liliths in each region, while Strongholds are far fewer in number, but are more difficult and open up more Side Quests and Dungeons.
You now know what Renown is, and how to earn it, but the most important question is, what do you get for it, and why should you go out of you way to do it? You’ll get a reward for each level, and they’re so significant because they impact more than just your currently played character, but all other characters on your account.
The table below details what you can expect from each level of Renown you gain:
|Renown Level||Points Needed||Character Reward||Account Reward|
|1||80||XP (scales based on current Level), 10,000 Gold||Skill Point +1|
|2||180||XP (scales based on current Level), 10,000 Gold||Potion Charge +1|
|3||300||XP (scales based on current Level), 10,000 Gold||Skill Point +1|
|4||500||XP (scales based on current Level), 10,000 Gold||Skill Point +1|
|5||800||XP (scales based on current Level), 10,000 Gold||Paragon Points +4|
As you can see, these are some powerful rewards and if you want to get the most out of all of your characters in Diablo 4, you’ll want to be seeking out every last Renown Point.
