Raising Favours

From Fallen London Wiki


This guide lists the best repeatable methods in London for raising Favours for characters whose major qualities are 100 or more.

General Methods[edit]

Faction Opportunity Cards[edit]

Each faction has its own Opportunity card which provides an option to gain 1 Favour.

Keep in mind, that Time, the Healer gives a single Bazaar.png Favourable Circumstance each week (up to 1), which can be used to force-draw any of the faction cards, effectively giving you a single chosen Favour! (Just remember to have the item needed to redeem it, as leaving that card will waste your Circumstances!)

Mrs Plenty's Carnival[edit]

If your Renown is less than 5, you can expend two actions and a Carnival Ticket to gain 3 CP and 1 Favour. You will also gain some Renown at the same time, so this cannot be used forever even if you otherwise keep Renown low. This method can be used for all currently-converted factions.

The Big Top

  • Bohemian
  • The Church
  • Constables
  • Hell
  • Society
  • The Tomb-Colonies
  • The Widow

The Sideshows:

  • Criminals
  • The Docks
  • The Duchess
  • The Great Game
  • Revolutionaries
  • Rubbery Men
  • Urchins

Static Actions and Storylets[edit]

The fact that most Favours are gained through Opportunity Cards can frustrate players with bad luck or poor RNG optimization. Fortunately, each faction's Favours can be gained without the RNG's interference through fixed storylets.

Faction Items[edit]

Favours can be purchased for FATE using Faction Items.

Renown Rewards[edit]

Each faction has 3 items you can obtain, each unlocked at certain levels of Renown.

  • The items unlocked at Renown 10 cost 3 Favours to obtain, and are sourced from the relevant Faction Opportunity Card.
  • The items unlocked at Renown 25 cost 5 Favours to obtain, and are sourced from various mid-game areas.
  • The items unlocked at Renown 40 cost 7 Favours to obtain, and are sourced from various late-game areas or areas non-trivial to get to.
