So I'm lurking around the Abyss last night and find a nifty little nook by the Slasher where a bunch of acidic creeps are hangin' out. So I start smashin' em... And then I notice the Spawn rate seems to be on some kind of very rudimentary ladder -- the acid slugs turn into acid ellies, and then eventually into grizzles. But I also notice that the respawn is the pits... after a while, the monsters are not respawning very well. Then I see an "Acid Elemental [Reknowned]" and see he has more hitpoints than Pike's Peak. Oh boy, says I, here's an equivalent to Paragons, which are sure to drop rares of some kind... Well, they don't even drop increased loot, it seems, much less anything special. Alliance Chat tells me the Reknowned monsters simply give you a boost to your Loyalty Rating. So my question is simply this -- does Loyalty matter if I don't plan to go to the garg city or use the forge? On a broader scope, does Loyalty do me any good anywhere? Also, if there's a writeup or post about the Reknowns, a link would be most welcome. Thanks!
