Diablo 4 Season of the Blood: How Does the Revamped Renown Mechanic Work?
Blizzard’s Diablo 4 received a brand new update on 17th October called the Season of Blood. Similar to the Season of Malignant, this new update brought a host of improvements to the title such as Renown changes, a revamped progression system, etc. along with new questlines, seasonal events, season journey objectives, end-game bosses, and more. Numerous players are logging back into their accounts to begin their grind once again, but this time they have Vampiric Powers at their disposal which further adds to the game’s immersion. If you are interested in checking out the new season and are curious about all the new mechanics in Diablo 4, you have stumbled upon the right guide. Let’s delve into it.
Diablo 4 Season of the Blood: What Is the New Renown System?
Essentially, Renown is a currency and a gameplay mechanic that offers rewards like Skill Points, Paragon Points, Potion Charges, and Obal Cap upgrades along with bonus Gold and XP if you take the time to roam around and explore the main regions of the game, such as Dry Steppes, Fractured Peaks, Kehjistan, etc.
You can earn Renown points by doing the following:
Discover an Area: 5 Renown
Find an Altar of Lilith: 10 Renown
Unlock a Waypoint: 20 Renown
Finish a Side Quest: 30 Renown
Clear a Side Dungeon: 40 Renown
Clear a Stronghold: 100 Renown
How Does the Renown System Work in Diablo 4 Season Two?
Diablo 4 contains five Renown tiers; each of them unlocks as you continue to gain more Renown points. You gain rewards such as XP, Gold, Skill Points, Potion Charges Obols, and Paragon Points. Here are the tiers:
Tier One: Gather 200 Renown
1x Skill Point
Tier Two: Gather 300 Renown to reach a total of 500
1x Potion Charge
Tier Three: Gather 400 Renown to reach a total of 900
1x Skill Point
Tier Four: Gather 400 Renown to reach a total of 1300
80 Max Obols
Tier Five: Gather 500 Renown to reach a total of 1800
4 Paragon Points
Do note that Tier Four and Five require you to be playing ar World Tier 3 to unlock them. You must also know that your Renown resets once you reach a new reward tier. These rewards you acquire from completing Renown tiers apply to all the characters in your account. Each region in the game has its own Renown system and completing all the tiers in all five regions will grant you the following:
5 Potion Charges
10 Skill Points
20 Paragon points
400 Max Obols
While the previous season only transferred Renown gained from map discovery and Altairs of Lilith to your seasonal characters, Season of Blood allows you to transfer your entire Renown points, even if they were unlocked using an old character.
