Menaphos reputation status showing Tier 1 in Menaphos Overall, Imperial district, Port district, Merchant district, and Worker district.

Reputation is a mechanic that is used within Menaphos. By gaining reputation with the various faction leaders, rewards can be earned throughout the city.

Having the Unexpected Diplomacy relic power active at the mysterious monolith at the Archaeology Guild increases every reputation gain by 10%.

After completion of Menaphos related quests, all reputation gain is increased.

Quests Reputation increase
The Jack of Spades x1.25
Crocodile Tears x1.50
Our Man in the North x1.75
'Phite Club x2.00

Getting the maximum reputation in all districts is one of the requirements for the title, Sandy [Name].

Reputation tiers[edit | edit source]

In the Menaphos interface, accessed by clicking any of the icons in the status hud shown by the image, the player's district reputation will be listed with different descriptions depending on level.

The interface uses the term 'Tier' when mouse cursor is over the five different sections, while clicking inside the icons the text uses the term 'Rank'.

  1. Acquainted
  2. Known
  3. Familiar
  4. Appreciated
  5. Liked
  6. Trusted
  7. Adored
  8. Loved
  9. Revered
  10. Worshipped

Earning reputation[edit | edit source]

During the The Jack of Spades quest, 1,000 reputation is awarded for each of the four districts, as a reward for returning the stolen items to the district leaders. After completion of The Jack of Spades, all skilling activities within the walls of Menaphos earn reputation. In addition, skilling using any of the methods released along with Menaphos rewards a higher amount of reputation. Those activities which award reputation at an increased rate are chopping acadia trees, mining mineral deposits, fishing for desert sole, catfish, and beltfish, thieving in the Menaphos market, catching plover birds in Sophanem, and fighting corrupted and devourer creatures in the Sophanem Slayer Dungeon. Furthermore, the highest rates of reputation are earned by playing the Shifting Tombs minigame.

Players must first choose to which faction they want to align themselves before reputation can be earned. Right-click on a faction icon within the faction windows to choose a faction. If no faction is selected, reputation is not gained and the following message is seen instead: You have not currently selected a faction, so earned no reputation!
