The Blood-Stained Stars - Faction increase

I was told by a friend that he received are a +2.0 faction increase by doing the Blood-Stained Stars epic-arc - e.g. going from 1.0 to 3.0 standing - however, the guides say a 7% increase (+ small adjustment for social).

As this is a ridiculously long series of mission (50 mission!) can anyone confirm their own increases before I go ahead and commit a few days of my life to it?

If it's a 7% standing increase and my standing was 5.0 then the calculation in the guides suggests this:

5.0 * 1.07 = 5.35

That's an increase of 0.35 - nothing like the +2.0 my friend reported.

What am I not understanding? Or is my friend's recollection incorrect?

The guides are correct. It's base 6.5% plus the social skill bonuses.


The thing that sets epic arcs apart is that there are no negative derived standings. (See prev poster's link).

Increase standing changes are derived as a percentage change of the difference between current "true" standing (unmodified) and 10.

The equation:


ns=New standing
i=Increase percentage in decimal form

For instance a 3% increase would work out the following way in each situation:
-10 standing: 10-(-10)=20. 20*0.03=0.6. -10+0.6= -9.4
0 standing: 10-0=10. 10*0.03=0.3. 0+0.3= 0.3
5 standing: 10-5=5. 5*0.03=0.15. 5+0.15= 5.15

Remember you need to use unmodified standings in calculations.
