OP  9/12/08 2:17:12 PM#1

I thought that in this game there where 2 kinds of level you could do .. The PVP and the PVE.

But I must have got it wrong since my Renown points stop at 99% and wont go up unless I level up

Can this really be true? as it is now I can PVP (wich is the only reason why I play) and as soon as i get to 99% then I have to grind my normal exp before I can advance to next rank.

 

Can someone please explain to me if this is normal or how it should work? It really bugs me that I have to grind just to gain a new Renown rank.

its simple, your renown level CANNOT be higher than your rank level. thats all. Soon as you level, you'll get your next renown level. without this feature, a couple months down the road  people would take advantage of it, and you'd be wondering why that rank 10, Renown rank 40 shaman is pwning you.

It is that way.. Although I went from level 5 to 11 just by pvp'ing, and the main level/renown level stayed just about the same throughout.. so you shouldn't have very much to grind xp wise anyway (assuming that ratio doesnt change at later levels)

Once you hit level 10 or so your renown levels will start to slow down, and by that I mean they hit a brick wall.  After tier one keeping your RR level capped with your level is borderline impossible.

Hmm ok .. Thanks.. But am I the only one that finds that pretty anoying? I mean when my Renown is at 99% then i have about 50% of my exp bar to fill out. And that pretty much forces me to PVE since you dont get "enough" exp with PVP .. I even have the "Get 5% more EXP from RvR" tactic buff thingie.

 

EDIT : I'm level 11, Renown is at 99% and I'm 3/4 on my EXP to level 12.

I did notice we get a decent pile of XP for winning a scenario.. perhaps that'd be an option for you to get that missing xp if you were only pvping in the rvr zones

Just because your renown is capped doesn't mean you have to stop RvR.  Keep killing people and you will level.

dont get enough xp from pvp??? i think you're incorrect, as scenarios are great xp. And no, i dont find this annoying as it only affects lvl 1-10

I do play alot of senarios, and we pretty much win all the time (silly orders never fo after healers).

But i wish it would go togheter EXP and Renown. So if you got 5 Renown for a DOT heal then it should give you 5 EXP aswell.

 

(btw fixed the title so it wouldn't be so misleading)

the proportionality between Rank and Renown earned was calculated By mythic based on how fast they want you to gain each, as such, they obviously want you to hit level 40 before you hit level 80 renown level. so they dont go up evenly, Renown is alot slower , because its what they want you to focus on once you've hit the rank cap

This information is not correct you can go up ranks twice as fast if you do PVP only, I have done it and my rank is higher than my renown .

seems you got it backwards.... you CANT have a renown level above rank... the other way is fine

Yes I'm anoyed that I have to PVE to get my EXP up, since my PVP points get up mutch faster then my PVE EXP (uhm.. getting confusing with the different types of EXP hehe, but hope you understand).

And my PVP points dont go slow after level 10, atleast not yet (waiting for PVE EXP to get to level 12, PVP points is at 99% again..).

You will not be the only one who is annoyed. Twinker pker types would be annoyed by this as well. Just play the game they way it is intended.
