Information about Renown in Fire Emblem Three Hopes, including what is Renown, how to earn Renown and what you can spend Renown on.

What is Renown in Fire Emblem Three Hopes?

Renown is a currency in Fire Emblem Three Hopes which you can spend by examining the Journal in your Personal Quarters. To access this, you must unlock the Base Camp by reaching Chapter 4 in the main questline.

How to Earn Renown in Fire Emblem Three Hopes

You can earn Renown by completing Main Quests or by Volunteering at the Base Camp.

Advancing the Main Questline is fairly self explanatory, although the Renown you’ll gain from clearing Main Quests will be reduced the more regions you conquer. On the other hand, completing Side Quests (and hence, claiming more regions) will earn you Strategy Resources, which will help you use strategies during Main Quests, which is required if you wish to recruit characters from other houses to your side. You will also gain various other boons by clearing Side Quests, including bonuses from the Side Quests themselves, and capturing a region will allow you to utilize Surveying Spots. You can also regain Activity Points by completing Side Quests, which in turn can be used to Volunteer around the Base Camp, so neglecting Side Quests in favor of gaining more Renown from Main Quests isn’t as clear-cut a decision as it may seem.

Renown can be earned by Volunteering around the Base Camp - the better your results, the more Renown you may earn.

To Volunteer around the Base Camp, talk to the Chore Master, who will give you a variety of chores you can perform. Without going into too much detail (check out the Volunteering page for more details on this aspect of the game), when you Volunteer around the Base Camp you’ll need to select a chore and some allies to suffer with you. Different allies are better suited to different chores, and different chores yield different rewards, but Renown is fairly universal. The better you perform at the chosen task, the more Renown you may receive, and since the outcomes of these chores are entirely RNG-based, if you want to maximize your Renown gain via chores you may want to save scum, perhaps switching out assigned characters or changing the chore undertaken to fish for the best results.

Volunteering for a chore consumes an Activity Point, of which you only have so many per Chapter. Activity Points are reset each Chapter, and any unused Activity Points are wasted, so be sure to do as many activities as possible before continuing with the Main Quest. Completing Side Quests may restore some Activity Points, hence allowing you to earn extra Renown, somewhat balancing out the lower Renown you’ll gain for capturing more regions.

Examine the Journal in your Personal Quarters to spend Renown.
