RO: Idle Poring - How to Get Honor
Honor: It's one thing we all need, but the game doesn't do an amazing job of really highlighting its importance and use for new players.
As I went over in my RO: Idle Poring progression guide, there are a fair number of ways to progress your character and make it more powerful. One aspect not mentioned in the linked guide is acquiring new skills, which is something that needs a guide on its own due to skill acquisition being tied to Honor.
Unlocking new skills requires nothing but Honor, but Honor itself is something that can only come with knowing how to get it, time, and patience. New players need to know how to jump on the Honor train early so they can start working towards new and more versatile skills.
How to Get Honor in RO: Idle Poring
There are only a few ways to get it, and we're going to cover them all here.
1. Stroking friends and giving them roses
You have definitely seen people begging for strokes in chat. A stroke grants you 40 Honor, but can only be done a few times a day.
Stroking doesn't require any investment from you but giving away roses does.
You can give another character a rose once per day, with the rose either costing 50 or 500 Diamonds depending on the one you buy.
The 50 Diamond Icy Rose is the typical option, as it has a much better Honor to Diamond ratio, whereas the Eternal Rose is used more to gain Bond points to improve your relationship with that character.
As a side note, if you don't feel like giving other players Icy Roses, you can instead make a second character for yourself and send them to that character instead.
In addition, stroking is so important that you absolutely should add friends to stroke each day. If you both have each other added to your friend list, you can exchange strokes (instead of toss them at people who won't reciprocate).
2. Daily quests
The game prompts you to complete daily quests all the time, and as you push through your daily tasks the game will grant you Honor on top of quest rewards. You can get up to 4 relatively small Honor packages per day via completing most of the quests, making it especially important to stay on top of them.
I hope you haven't been avoiding PvP, because it's a pretty good Honor supplement. You get a very small amount of Honor per win in PvP, but that's not the real meat of its rewards.
You can be awarded anywhere from 2000 to 4500 Honor each week, depending on your ranking for the duration. Check out the reward tiers below -- they're good enough to warrant going into PvP whenever you have tickets.
4. VIP and SVIP
I'm not going to comment on whether these are worth it or not since the game is so new (and I'm running on VIP) but the fact remains both options grant 50 Honor per day.
Honestly I would not go crazy over the 50 Honor reward with either of the VIP options, you would want them for their other benefits. But Honor is Honor, and you need it. It's just one added option to be aware of.
Getting Honor isn't complicated, you just have to know how to do it. Luckily the game's other systems are a bit more complex.
