Prestige is a measure of standing within a crafting discipline. Prestige Boards have a list of the top five most prestigious crafters in each relevant discipline for that Society. They also tell you your current individual level of prestige.
It is gained through doing work orders for crafting masters. Harder work orders produce greater prestige, but easy work orders still give prestige.
Prestige is awarded based on the difficulty level of the work order, the difficulty tier of the item, and the number of items you're told to make. Mastercrafting all items in a work order gives a small bonus, and marking the items with a maker mark also gives a bonus.
Prestige is lost over time, and must be constantly worked on. The loss is percentage based, so higher prestige depletes faster.
Currently, it only allows you to qualify for maker marks, but it will eventually be linked to special stores as well.
|Crafter||approx easy WO||approx chall WO||approx. hard WO|
|Renowned (basic mark)||300||150|
|Famous (advanced mark?)||6000|
Note that these levels are extremely approximate.
