Best ways to Make Waves? I apologise if this has already been answered. I need Notability 5 to specialise one of my stats.

Open to most actions. Send me a calling card introducing yourself & your interests, or an invitation of some sort and we'll become delicious friends. Trying to raise Notability, so helping me Make Waves would be greatly appreciated.

She wishes for nothing more than to be close to the Masters, for who else can unlock the Mysteries of the Neath?

I imagine it's already been answered, Notability being as integral to the game as it is, but it's not like that means it's a bad question.

Here's a short, non-exhaustive list of ways I like to increase MW:

-Expeditions give quite a lot if you donate your findings to the University. If your Watchful's high enough to get at least 2 progress at 100%, the action-sink isn't too terrible.
-The card "City Vices: A Rather Decadent Evening" gives MW equal to your Scandal when you play it, and some other goodies as well, although the MW is what makes it worth playing at all since it lowers Connected: Bohemian by quite a bit. Keep your Scandal at 7, equip the +Scandal items to play it, and you'll get a nice 9 CP every time you draw the card (which is often).
-The Holy Grail of Notability is getting a Salon or Orphanage, but the investments you have to pool into getting anything out of them are tremendous. Just setting either one up needs a Handsome Townhouse as well as a wide range of other things, and then advancing your scheme costs a lot too. It's undoubtedly the best way to increase your MW, though.
-Converting certain half-echo items at a 50:51 ratio to other categories gives some MW. It's relatively cheap, since the only thing you're paying is the opportunity cost of not doing other things. You could get to 5 notability doing nothing but this.

~~~

I, too, have a question. Has anyone ever tried getting Dramatic Tension to 77, or, God forbid, 777 on Hunter's Keep? There's a lot of fuss about the well there, and it does have an UP option...

edit: changed linebreaker to look less like a signature one

I'll add that "a polite invitation" opp card (and its carousel) grants a good deal of MW, and it's the only way to gain a personal reccomendation (besides buying it at the bazzar side-street), which is necessary for a lot of POSI-level stuff, including getting a salon.

If you haven't been kicked out of the Empress' Court yet, "The Life of the Mind" is method of Making Waves that isn't dependent on cards or waiting for other players.

See one of the half-echo items' wiki page (e.g. http://fallenlondon.wikia.com/wiki/Tale_of_Terror!! ) for the full conversion cycle, as well as which of those conversions gain making waves. Going all the way around the cycle averages somewhere around 1.5 MW per action, and gives 0.5 echo/action. For low levels of notability, that is a reasonable way to go.
