The most straightforward way of getting your Renown levels up the is through the completion of missions and quests. Post-mission, the game evaluates your performance—speed, enemies you have polished off, and objectives achieved—and applies a Renown-dependent multiplier to your score.

This assessment not only determines your gold, Renown, and honors haul but also means that a better performance should bring higher rewards to the table. To max out your mission earnings, consider engaging as many enemies as you come across and ticking off additional objectives that crop up. Quests, often linked to battles but sometimes standalone, also contribute to your Renown reserves.

Crucially, it enables the expansion of your units—from a starting point of three characters to a max of five—and at rank B, the option to promote characters to their advanced classes becomes available to you. While these upgrades require honors, the payoff is a formidable force capable of dominating the early stages of the game.
