I get where the OP is comping from, but adding renown based buffs is not the solution. We are currently at a painful place. Most geared players are AP builds. AP scaling is as powerful as ever, yet renown based DR boosts are gone. People melt faster than before. Reverting the renown removal is not the solution though. It will keep people going for just AP instead of going for build variety. Moreover, it will make more geared players much more capable of 1vXing lesser geared players. We are all squishy now. My 560+ GS witch is just as squishy as a 300ish DP sub-softcap player. This wasn’t the case back when renown was a thing. What we need is better DP scaling to make hybrid and DP builds more viable without going full blown DP meme. Doing so can be a bit of a challenge as if DP is overturned, a softcap player will never kill a geared player with a 269+ AP build and caphras levels in armor (for those who don’t know, putting about 500-550 caphras stones in each armor piece will boost your DP by 12 in total for very cheap post softcap gains....usually a good idea after you hit 261+ AP). No solution is likely to be perfect, and adding renown back will help me as I am full AP monkey. But I don’t think renown is a healthy solution for the 1 shot meta problem.
