[quote=th8827]After much grinding since day 1, I finally got Connected: Hell 100!
Roughly how much renown does 100 levels usually translate to?[/quote]
So far, there have been two approximate scales:
A) renown = (connected-21)/6 = 79/6 = ~13 (not as bad as it sounds, but not amazing.). equivalent to 21 favors to hit 7, and then 31.5 to hit 13. (would have cost 53 favors to be where you are, but one of the favors would have been used sub-optimally.) connected 100 = 52.5 favors worth of renown.
B) renown = (connected - 21)/5 = 79/5 = ~19 (also not as bad as it sounds.) equivalent to 63 favors to hit 15, and then about 17.5 used optimally to hit 19. (of course, it’s impossible to use 17.5 optimally at that point, but still worth counting by that scale): connected 100 = 80.5 favors worth of renown.
Either way, you’ll also receive 7 favors, which, should you invest them in renown, will promptly get you to the next level of renown. in short, you aren’t getting terrible value for your 3800 CP hell- either 52.5 or 80.5 favors saved, or about 1 favor every 72.4 cp, or every 47.2 cp, pricing it at around (4 pence or 6 pence per cp, assuming a favor is worth three echoes), not counting savings on aquiring renown.
Meanwhile, I’m getting, assuming the pattern holds, 357 favors in renown for 14850 cp hell, or 1 favor saved per 42 cp hell… (Though the last reward seems to be at 40, past that it’s just bragging rights, so)
The returns are kind of parabolic- the best payouts in favors saved per cp are at 8, 15 and 50, as those are where the renown per favor doubles, in exchange for harsher favor collections- 3, 5, and 7.
