Reputation Quests are part of an end-game feature introduced in October, 2018, with version 2.2.1. The purpose of the Reputation system is to build status with three allied guilds: the Mighty Lions, the Whiskers and the Zenpaws. (The main trio of heroes originally meet these guilds and their leaders in the Main Story Quest.) The feature unlocks at guild level 20 and the quests appear on the Questboard, randomly, at quest level 6 and above. The other aspects of the system can be accessed through the Reputation board to the left of the archway on the guild hall screen.
Reputation quests are a kind of Normal Quest, eg. for purposes of Missions, meaning they do not have stories or dialogs. But they have several features that distinguish them from other Normal quests: They always recommend six skills to be met by filling three cat slots; they are much lengthier in duration, from 4 to 6 hours each; and Reputation tokens are their only rewards besides XP and gold. Earning tokens from Reputation quests is a preliminary step in a larger system of progressive levels and rewards.
Each allied guild has a unique Reputation token and dedicated quests that award only their own tokens. As tokens are acquired, they are stored in inventory until delivered to the guilds via the Reputation board. Tokens act something like XP in that they are applied toward increasing a player's status levels with the three guilds. Each guild tracks progress individually on separate tabs of the board, which show how many tokens are needed to advance to the next level. The inventory holds a maximum of 100 of each kind of token and there is no minimum amount that can be turned in at one time, so players are advised to deliver their tokens often. In cases where the number of tokens in inventory is greater than the amount needed to reach the next level, the leftover tokens remain in inventory, as token delivery is suspended during the level-up process; players can, however, continue to earn tokens from quests.
Again like most XP systems, the number of tokens required to reach the next level increases progressively, from 24 up to 400 tokens to get to the maximum level of 50. Even after reaching that maximum level, players can continue earning and turning in tokens indefinitely. Although the level indicator will not go above 50, token tracking continues and the level-up process, including rewards (described in the next section), still occurs every time a guild receives another 400 tokens.
Each time a player delivers enough tokens to reach a new level with a particular ally, a Reputation chest is awarded and can be claimed after 24 hours of crafting time. (Or it can be claimed instantly with a payment of gems, much as it is with Alchemy crafting.) Each chest contains a random prize drawn from a pool that gets expanded at various milestone levels, as detailed in the table below. Upon reaching level 50 with a particular ally, a player becomes eligible to receive from the chest a special Legendary hero associated with that guild. It is important to note, however, that chest rewards are random, and the cat is not guaranteed to be in the chest awarded at level 50. To win the cat, and any other unique rewards not already obtained, players must continue to earn tokens, deliver them and craft chests, although the Reputation levels are capped at 50 and will not show any increase.
Reputation Chest Rewards
Following are lists of rewards available in the Reputation Chest for each of the allied guilds.
Reputation quests appear on the Questboard randomly: sometimes no such quests will appear while other quest resets will generate multiple Reputation quests, from the same or different guilds. All Reputation quests have six recommended skills and require three heroes. They each cost up to 4 rare materials or 1 or 2 common embers, in addition to between four and 18 thousand coins, with exact amounts depending on the level of the quest. The duration of the quests and their rewards also vary with quest level.
|Sneak & Find||7||4h 30m|
|Sneak & Find||9||5h 30m|
|Sneak & Find||10||6h|
|Cat Gym||7||4h 30m|
|Frontline Battle||9||5h 30m|
|Garden Cleaner||9||5h 30m|
Each allied guild's tab on the Reputation board is hosted by the leader of that guild: Astrid for the Whiskers, Aslan for the Mighty Lions, and Aya for the Zenspaws. They all have individualized dialogs at particular stages of the level-up process.
|General/Visiting||"Got the stuff, lil' kitty?"|
|"Help us and we'll help you, aight?"|
|Token Goal Reached||"Aight, let's get to work then."|
|While Crafting||"I'll be done in a sec, aight..?|
|After Crafting||"Whaddaya think's in it?"|
|General/Visiting||"I assure you we will use these resources better."|
|"The more you provide us, the better we can fight in the frontline."|
|Token Goal Reached||"Time to assemble our battle spoils."|
|While Crafting||"The patient hunter gets the prey."|
|After Crafting||"Be grateful for this reward, little one."|
|General/Visiting||"We appreciate your support, young hero."|
|"Your will to help is truly commendable."|
|Token Goal Reached||"We can begin working on your reward, young one."|
|While crafting||"Let us meditate while we wait"|
|After Crafting||"The reward is yours, young one. You have earned it."|
- As an introduction to the Reputation system, all players were given 100 free Whiskers tokens, allowing them to immediately begin crafting a Whiskers Reputation Chest.
- The first thing players receive out of their first Whiskers chest is a new fur pattern.
- The motif on the Whiskers token looks like an upside-down version of the "danger" shadowmark from the RPG Skyrim.
- Astrid is also the name of the leader of The Dark Brotherhood in Skyrim.
- The original Whiskers token was brown with a wooden texture.
