You know when you always ask in school 'when will I ever need this?' finally I have found a use for the simple mathematics!

Now that my riveting title has drawn you all in I can now bore you with some maths! The realization of how long it would take to get to the higher renown ranks came to me while working away in Tor Anroc trying to catch up to my normal rank. I needed around 15000 renown to level and the renown I gathered from each scenario varied from 300 to 1500 renown. Even if I achieved 1500 renown a match it would take 10 of them to level. When each Tor Anroc generally goes for around 10 minutes that is 100 minutes of pure scenarios to level, which doesn't seem a huge time period, however it is different when you consider the 300 renown. 1500 renown at 300 renown per scenario adds up to 50 10 minute matches before leveling totally 500 hours of gameplay, making 100 and 500 minutes the two extremes. With a bit more maths the average works out to be roughly 160-170 minutes which is still a significant amount of time. And this wasn't a very high renown rank, I forget the exact number but it was in the low 20s.

If it takes almost 3 hours to level one renown rank in low T3 what must it be like when you hit the elite ranks of 60+? While in Altdorf I visited a renown gear merchant who offered 'Mythic' gear for renown ranks 75 and 76, they did look shiny but when I thought about how long it would take to reach that rank the stats seemed paltry, surely by then the stats on those types of gear for that type of rank to be almost as good as some of this kind of gear.
