When adventurers accomplish heroic deeds, favor of the gods is granted to their world. The favor of the gods affects all players in the game world, regardless of where they live in the real world. The special command /favor displays the amount of time remaining in the current favor or, if the world is without favor, the number of feats required before it is granted. While the world has favor of the gods, statues to the gods are animated, the drop rate of rare items increases, and Silver Vaettir can spawn.

Favor mechanics[edit]

Favor is granted based on how often characters obtain the maximum rank in a qualifying title. Each time this happens, the game announces the achievement via the chat window in the three outposts that provide access to the Fissure of Woe and the Underworld (i.e. Chantry of Secrets, Temple of the Ages, and Zin Ku Corridor) and the four intercontinental ports.

  • After twenty announcements, the gods will grant favor for 60 minutes.
  • While the world has favor, each additional announcement extends the duration by three more minutes.

Qualifying titles[edit]

Character-based Account-wide


  • Favor is capped at 34,999 minutes (~24 days), the equivalent of 11,667 achievements. Maintaining a constant level of favor requires a new achievement every three minutes.
