Dungeoneering Prestige

Your prestige total is one of only two factors that determine the base value - the lump sum - of Dungeoneering XP you receive at the end of a raid. Other modifiers increase or decrease this base value, but their effects are small in comparison to the prestige total, which, alongside the floor you choose, can determine whether you get a small or large amount of XP. With this in mind, it is important that you maximize your prestige total before every raid.

If you are to maximize your prestige total, you will need to understand what it is. Your prestige total is a measure of how varied your dungeon raids have been; so, a high prestige total reflects a player who likes to raid a wide variety of floors. Prestige totals ensure that players do not repeatedly raid or 'grind' a floor of the dungeon.

The prestige total is equal to one of two things, depending on whichever is higher: the number of individual floors you have raided, or the number of individual floors you raided BEFORE you last pressed the 'Reset' button on your ring of kinship interface. We will get to the second of these - the 'reset' prestige total - in a moment, but new players to Daemonheim will not have pressed this button; therefore, they will generally have a higher value for floors they have currently raided.

Floors currently raided:

Your prestige total, if you have not pressed the reset button, is always determined by the number of different floors you have raided. If you have raided floors 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6, for example, you will have a prestige total of 5; this is because you have raided floors 1-6, but skipped floor 3, raiding a total of 5 different floors. If you have raided floor 1 twice and floor 2 three times, your prestige total will be 2, as you have only raided two different floors. Frequency of raids on one floor has no effect on the prestige total.

You can only receive prestige contributions to your Dungeoneering XP once per floor. Play a floor for a second time and the game will attempt to do the following, in the order shown:

  • If a lower floor of the same theme (frozen, abandoned, etc) has not been raided by you, then the floor you raid will be treated as if it was this lower floor. This means that the lower floor will be counted as complete (ticked on your floor interface before a dungeon) and your base value of XP will be calculated according to this lower floor.
  • If a higher floor of the same theme (frozen, abandoned, etc) has not been raided by you, then the floor you raid will be treated as if it was this higher floor. This means that the higher floor will be counted as complete (ticked on your floor interface before a dungeon) while your base value of XP will be calculated according to the floor you are currently raiding, NOT the higher floor.
  • If there are no floors of the same theme (frozen, abandoned, etc) that have not been raided by you, you will receive a 0 XP prestige contribution to your base value.

Since it can be hard keeping track of which floor you have previously raided, the floor selection interface has a number of 'ticks' to show you the floors that have been explored.

Of course, you will quickly reach a point where there are no more floors to explore with your current multiplier. This is where the 'Reset' button on your party interface comes into play.

Floors raided before you pressed the 'reset' button:

The 'Reset' button, once pressed on your ring of kinship interface, will do two things: firstly, it will reset your progress in each dungeon, meaning that you will have raided 0 different dungeon floors; secondly, it will set your prestige total to a fixed total. This fixed total is equal to the number of different floors you raided before you pressed the 'Reset' button. Once again, if you raided floors 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6 before pressing the 'Reset' button, you will have a fixed prestige total of 5 after pressing the button.

The value of this button soon becomes obvious: on a first run-through of the floors in Daemonheim, you would have received a prestige total of 1 on floor 2, of 2 on floor 3, etc. Pressing 'Reset' after raiding 5 individual floors will give you a fixed prestige total of 5, so you can then have a prestige total of 5 on floor 1, of 5 on floor 2, etc. This is a marked improvement over the prestige totals of 1 and 2 noted before. It is often recommended that you reset your prestige total if you have reached a point where you are rarely unlocking new floors to raid.

Comparing prestige totals:

You now know that you have two prestige totals, but which applies at the end of a dungeon? The highest of the two will always be applied at the end of the game. For example, if you have a fixed prestige total of 5, but then raid your 6th individual floor (having raided floors, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6, for example), then you will have a prestige total of 6 - the higher of the two values.

Will I lose anything if I press the reset button?

Pressing the 'Reset' button has no effect on how many floors you have unlocked, the complexity levels you have unlocked, or the items you have bound or gained. The 'Reset' button simply re-calculates the multiplier you receive as a reward for completing a number of different numbered floors.
