999 renown crates, 99,900 tech fragments, and bragging rights.

I'm going to go ahead and assume OP is well geared now

I believe I may be world first for getting to this point, but at this moment I do not know for sure. Good luck to all fellow renown grinders!

So no benefit whatsoever. No extra powers or better stats. Crates and tech frags you get anyway by grinding, they are not a reward for reaching lvl 999. Also, bragging rights are nonexistent because there is no skill involved to get to 999 (unlike some of the OPS or pvp). Simply mindless stealth runs and Hammer Station.

Hey man! Don't hate! Appreciate! Even if we do not share in his devotion to grind renown levels, and even if it requires little or no "skill" it's still an achievement nonetheless.

I mean, let's be real lots of things are recognized as being noteworthy and worthy of celebration but aren't especially hard to accomplish. Just the will and fortitude OP had to accomplish his achievement is worth acknowledging imo.

Also, this was a great thread. It has brought a lot of people together. That's the important part.

Exactly. This is a video game. Accomplishing weird achievements is just part of playing. I mean it's not hard to get Legendary status (other than playing through trooper) but it's still cool when you accomplish it. Same with achievement hunting or being world first in beating an OP. It's all just a game and some numbers.

It’s a shame the swtor team don’t post world firsts and congrats like the blizzard (war craft) team does.
