How to increase Renown in Diablo 4

Now that Diablo 4 has taken on a more open-world approach to its design, a lot of new mechanics and systems have been introduced. Many of them will be easily understood and recognized, such as unlocking fast-travel points, encountering world events, and more. Renown is a new system that shares some similarities to other open-world games, but not quite in the same way. While you could ignore it, the rewards you get for increasing your Renown are some of the best in the game. Here's how to increase Renown in Diablo 4 and what it does.

How to increase Renown

Renown is basically a completion bar that is unique to each zone in Diablo 4. By doing certain tasks within that region, you will build up your renown and unlock different tiers of rewards. There are five levels of renown to achieve per region, and each tier has greater rewards.

Step 1: After reaching your first region, you can start earning Renown.

Step 2: The different methods to earn Renown, and how many points they earn you, are as follows: * Discover a new area - 5 points * Find an Altar of Lilith - 10 points * Activate a Waypoint - 20 points * Complete a sidequest - 20 points * Complete a dungeon - 30 points * Complete a stronghold - 100 points

Step 3: The rewards for each level, and how much Renown you need to get to achieve them, per region are:

  • Level 1 (200 Renown) - Bonus XP, 3,000 Gold, and 1 Skill Point
  • Level 2 (500 Renown) - Bonus XP, 10,000 Gold, and 1 Potion Charge
  • Level 3 (800 Renown) - Bonus XP, 25,000 Gold, and 1 Skill Point
  • Level 4 (1,110 Renown) - Bonus XP, 60,000 Gold, and 80 Max Obols
  • Level 5 (1,500 Renown) - Bonus XP, 150,000 Gold, and 4 Paragon Points

Note that you can only unlock the first three levels right away. To gain access to the final two, you need to unlock World Tier 3 first.

Step 4: The best way to earn Renown quickly would be to start as many sidequests as you can in town, head toward the nearest Stronghold while completing any quests and interact with any Altars as you can on the way. Once all the Strongholds are complete, focus on running dungeons and cleaning up any remaining sidequests.

You can check your current Renown progress at any time by opening the map and highlighting the zone you want to see. You can also check the different rewards and levels in more detail by pressing either W, Triangle, or Y depending on your system.

How to start the Far Harbor DLC in Fallout 4
A billboard for far harbor in the mist in Fallout 4.

Once you've done and seen everything there is in the base Fallout 4 game, it's time to venture out beyond the Commonwealth. The Far Harbor DLC was the first to add an entirely new zone to the game, but it doesn't stick it onto the existing map. It doesn't take long to get yourself to the new island once you know the proper steps, but you need to do a few specific things in the game before it will be an option, and the game won't tell you what those requirements are. This is all you need to know about how to start the Far Harbor DLC in Fallout 4.

Every game with an in-game shop like XDefiant also needs its own form of currency. Typically, there's more than one to make things even more complicated. XCoins are the name for Ubisoft's premium currency needed to buy most of the cosmetics, such as skins and animations. Some games allow you to earn small amounts of the premium currency for free, while others only sell it to you in exchange for real cash. You don't have to pay to start playing, but will you need to start spending money once you do? Let's dig in and find the answer.
How to get XCoins
XCoins can only be earned in two ways in XDefiant. The first is to simply purchase them with real money. You can buy bundles of the premium currency in the Store tab of the menu by selecting Get More XCoins. These are the bundles currently available:

500 XCoins: $5
1,000 XCoins: $10
2,100 XCoins: $20
5,750 XCoins: $50
12,000 XCoins: $100
