Omnibits: It's a specific example, but I do the race challenge in Thayd every time I need to get from the north end to the south, and it usually rewards me an omnibit. It would not surprise me if that's a common challenge reward, at least for getting gold.

Should also list for Renown...

I have had renown rewarded from certain discoveries. The ones that give the loot chest seem to give some renown, base on level of the zone, they are found in.

Thank you! I've been going nuts trying to figure out why an alt had any at all.

I only noticed because it let me buy XP pots at the renown vendor. Actually due to lag I wound up with a reputation pot and no way to get the 500 points back :roll:

BTW, the Elder Gem cap for Signature players is 250. Also the Omnichore-1 instance gives you another 10 off-cap EG's.
