Workshop Rank Pedestals

Workshop Rank competition pedestals

Workshop Rank measures a workshop's standing compared to other workshops in Portia. Ranks are assigned by the Commerce Guild, which handles the assigning of commissions in Portia. When the player character arrives and starts his or her own workshop, Higgins is at the highest rank, but with hard work the player character can surpass even him.

Rank LevelEdit

Every commission completed for the Commerce Guild comes with a reward of reputation points, or Workshop Rank points. A workshop moves up the ranks by completing these commissions, and most missions personally requested by NPCs earn you points as well. The overall rank of your workshop is represented by a letter grade, with "S" being the highest and "D" being the lowest.

Workshop Rank C 500 Prompt guild
Workshop Rank B 2,500 Prompt guild
Workshop Rank A 7,500 Prompt guild
Workshop Rank S 17,500 Prompt guild[1]

The CompetitionEdit

There are several competing workshops in the running for first place, and some are more competitive than others.

As of current Hotfix 1.1, Higgins's workshop gains points on Saturday and Sunday. Therefore this increase to workshop points will have to included in the weekly calculation that differs from the rest of the competition.

The player's Workshop Rank is determined by the reputation points they earn throughout the year by doing Commissions at the Commerce Guild or for around Portia.

The player can check their Workshop Rank at the pedestals up the stairs behind Antoine's desk at the Commerce Guild.

Annual CeremonyEdit

On the first morning of each year (other than the player's very first day), the Commerce Guild holds the annual awards ceremony for the top workshops in Portia, and workshops that make the top three are given rewards. This is the only time that Allen Carter, Sweet, and Builder Wang are met in-person.

On the last day of each year, the Commerce Guild will send a letter in the mail to alert the player about the ceremony the next day.

We would like to invite you to our annual Commerce Guild Awards tomorrow at the Commerce Guild building. We'll be presenting awards to the best ranked Builders over the last year. Come one come all!
