    I've killed four, three rat men and a poison ele. Have solo'd all of them with EVs/poison/fire field/WODing them at the end.





    Bad loot. Anyone have any different intel?

    I get nothing but crap from the renowned. Not even good gold. The spawn leading up to the renowned has the essence and other imbuing ingredients which is nice.

    They provide imbuing ingredients. Thats why they are there.

    Not as far as I have seen. I haven't gotten anything off of them I wouldn't have gotten off of the regular mob of the same type.

    They provide the same ingredients as the preceeding spawn. They don't even giver higher numbers of them, just one as always. That seems pretty worthless to me.
     
  7. There's got to be some reason for them. Maybe they're like some of the other named creatures we've heard of and they drop some type of artifact particular to them.

    I'm expecting them to provide much better loot soon, perhaps with the next publish or maybe even sooner if the developers are sneaking in incremental changes during the morning maintenance. Don't be surprised if some of them get a bit nastier too. A few of the ones I've encountered so far still seem a bit wimpy.

    they are also a huge anti-script camping mechanism for those of you who demanded it...

    Renowned have higher artifact chance?
     
  13. That would be cool, but once you hit the top level the reason to fight them goes away. They really should have something useful that they drop.

    I am on a quiet server so the Abyss has been relatively empty, as such I have managed to solo every renown boss in the Abyss twice now. I am yet to receive a single imbuing ingredient or unique item of loot, was also hoping for a mysticism scroll from the bosses that used mysticism, especially considering one of rat bosses took me 35 minute to kill!
