From DDO wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

House Cannith is one of the Dragonmarked Houses found in Eberron.

Crest of House Cannith

Overview[edit]

House Cannith is a human Dragonmarked House throughout Khorvaire. The humans of House Cannith bear the Mark of Making. The artificers and magewrights of House Cannith are responsible for most of the magical innovations of the past thousand years. House Cannith made great profit during the Last War by selling arms and warforged soldiers. The House was strongly based in Cyre but it was destroyed during the Last War. The new town area, House Cannith Enclave, is added to Stormreach with Update 11.

Challenges[edit]

Introduced in Update 12, The Vaults of the Artificers challenge system offered four new dungeons. These four dungeons are separated into 12 challenges with different rewards available. Nine of these challenges have a separate "Epic" variation available, for a total of 21 separate variations across four dungeons.

The challenge pack can be purchased from the DDO Store granting unlimited access to the challenges. However, free players can use free daily Universal Challenge Tokens to enter the challenges.

Completing challenges grants favor for House Cannith: one Favor point per star achieved, plus an additional favor point if you five star a challenge on its maximum available level. This extra point increases the total of favor to six, hence the term "six-star run" although only five stars still show in your compendium; You can differentiate a five-star run from a six-star run because the color of the stars changes from a blueish color to an orange/yellowish color. With 21 challenges available, this means there is a total of 126 favor possible. (*Note*: Stars are not earned progressively. Only the maximum number of "Star Objectives" completed within a single instance will be awarded.)

Heroic Challenge Favor[edit]

12 challenges, if completed to 5 stars earns 60 favor. If completed to 5 stars on maximum difficulty, this will earn 72* favor.

Epic Challenge Favor[edit]

9 challenges, if completed to 5 stars earns 45 favor. If completed to 5 stars on maximum difficulty, this will earn 54 favor.

Earning Artificer[edit]

The Artificer class can be purchased in the DDO Store for 995 DP or can be unlocked on a per server basis by earning 150 House Cannith patron favor.

There is much more than 150 House Cannith favor in the game, but much of it is Epic level, requiring a character of at least Level 20. And, due to a bug in two of the free* Challenges (see below), you also need access to the quest pack Secrets of the Artificers to earn the 150 favor needed. So, first, understand that you're not going to do this on a new account, or at least not very soon.

(* see Challenge Token)
  • The Secrets of the Artificers quest pack (free to VIP Accounts) offers 78 Heroic favor with three Level 19 quests and one raid (for characters level 15 or higher), plus another 21 favor from an Epic Level 20 raid, for 99 total. That leaves 51 to be earned via Cannith Challenges (heroic and epic) plus the free Level 27 quest (see next).
  • The one free House Cannith quest, Brothers of the Forge, is Level 28, and can provide 27 House Cannith favor when run at Elite or Reaper difficulty.
  • 150 total Favor should, in theory, be available without access to the quest pack, using only the free quest and free challenges, but is currently impossible due to a bug (see below).
  • The favor from challenges includes both the Heroic and Epic versions, so, again, requires an Epic character (Level 20 or higher).
  • 21 House Cannith challenges (free-to-play via Challenge Tokens) provide 1 House Cannith favor per star (Heroic and Epic versions are counted separately), meaning the maximum 6 stars on all challenges (6 x 21) should provide 126 favor. However...
  • Bug: The heroic and epic versions of the Kobold Island: Short Cuts have a bugged objective making it impossible to get a 6-star completion. There are no "5 star" completions, so you lose 2 points on each one, meaning 122 total favor maximum from the challenges.

So, 4-star completion on the 2 bugged challenges, plus 6-star completion in every other House Cannith challenge, yields a total of only 122 favor. That, plus the 27 from the free Level 28 quest, is 149, leaving you still 1 point short of the required 150. Meaning... currently, you need the quest pack.
