That means there is no real benefit but it is a grind for the sake of grinding. To contrast, e.g., legendary at least shows you learned at minimum the fundamentals of each class and unlocked bonus powers. That's a benefit. Getting all datacrons gives stat boosts. Benefit. CXP 300 had some benefit, which I don't recall (unlocked gear?). Renown 999 serves no purpose at least for now.

You were told that one of benefits is gaining 99900 tech fragments. Not even counting plus several times more earned during grinding it. Do you really have to ask, what is the benefit of having several hundreds of thousands tech fragments available for gearing?

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!

Just curious, but how many hours, and what did you do?

Your passive aggressive attempt to refute that there is no benefit to Renown 999 is baseless, like a house built on a swamp. You get TF by grinding. There is no lump sum TF award at Renown 999 as you mislead. You get the same amount of TF at Renown 1 that you get at Renown 999. Thus your post only reinforces my conclusion that there is no benefit to Renown 999. Thank you for your support.

Also, the next xpax will likely change "Renown" to "Rewind'' and reset to 0. Renown 999 is a grind for the sake of grinding.

I also must agree with your argument, that for renown rank 999 you get the same 100 tech fragments as for any previous rank. But there are other benefits you gain for reaching rank 999: 20 free cartel coins, 100 achievement points and a legacy title "Limitless". And before you try to make argument here, I want to remind you, that just because these things may not be benefits for you, it doesn't mean, they are also not benefits for others...

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.
Agreed,
well done OP.
So out of interest what is your gear rated at on that character?

Again well done.

You should work in a factory, they'll love you. Jokes aside, it's cool if it makes you happy but I find world firsts only really interesting when it involves skill, like NiM content. But hey, if it makes you happy that's all good.
