Renown is needed to purchase items from faction vendors - each item requires the character's renown with that faction to be at, or above, a certain threshold. You reach Neutral after your first quest with each faction.
- Neutral: 1 - 999 points
- Cooperative: 1,000 - 2,499 points
- Friendly: 2,500 - 4,499 points
- Favorable: 4,500 - 6,499 points
- Trusted: 6,500 points
Many non-repeatable quests will reward some renown. However, to get the maximum level of renown players must complete the available daily bounties and challenges (early game instances ramped up to level 30). Bounties are worth 40 points and challenges are 125. There are 2 challenges from each faction that can be done daily.
