First Look: Renown Rank 75 Scenario Weapons
So the PTS opened up today and lots of people thronged to the new Vendors to check out the stats on the new weapons.
The ones that received the most comments were, of course, the Renown Rank 75 items. Being the new end-game go-to items, there was definitely a lot of feedback flying around about them.
The most common request was, of course, to see the artwork. So, here it is!
While some is new (and frickin’ sweet imo), some is recycled. However, I have assurances that what is recycled will be given new artwork in the future, so never fear!
Word on the street is that these are earned mainly by doing Scenarios, although some are supposedly found in Open RvR. From what we can tell in early testing: the higher your score, the more you get. Bonuses also seem to be earned both by winning as well as hitting 500. No word yet on how you obtain the high-level Insignias, but Conqueror’s seemed to come off Tier 4 wins as the bonus token.
(Scenarios are hereby renamed “Slot Machines” as far as I’m concerned. :p )
Important Update: The higher level Insignias are earned by first purchasing a weapon that requires the Conqueror Insignias. From that point on, you will then earn Invader Insignias. This repeats up the chain to Royal Insignias/weapons. The cost of each progressive weapon has already been based on including the cost of the one before it, so you’re not being double-charged. You can break down Insignias to the previous rank if you wish to buy multiple versions of the weapon level you’re at. This info will be put in the tooltip on the weapons themselves before they go live…hopefully.

(If I missed something, I’m sure you’ll tell me. lol. The Chosen shield is MIA due to technical difficulties…~giggle~ Once again, some artwork is recycled, but I’ve been told those items will receive new, more appropriate artwork in the future.)
Unless I missed something, which is highly likely considering how late it was, that’s all folks. As these were taking on the PTS, everything is subject to change. However, that’s what they were when I was able to get shots of them.
Hopefully we’ll see the updated artwork for the recycled pieces sooner rather than later. (My shield!!! My shield!!!)
Until then, I leave you with this catchy little tune just in time for the new Ironclad scenario…
