Obtaining Legends

Ways to get Temporary Legends:

Ways to get Permanent Legends:

Note: 2016 posts and on

Note that a Tier 1 claim may be used on a Tier 2, and that in the Legendary Swap event any Tier 1 claim may be swapped for any Tier 2 and then back again.

Note: Contest, Art, Story and Park Legends are all repeatable, and do not have any scaling.

Repeat Legends for Professions

You may earn multiple legends through the same profession. After receiving your first legend, subsequent milestones will increase by 50% of the base value. These increases will be capped after two, so a Legendary milestone will never increase past 200% of the base value.
Note that only repeat legends only scale per tier and per section. Even if you get several Tier 2 legends in one section, your first Tier 1 through that section will still cost the same as it would if it was your first legend. (e.g. you claim 2 tier 2 art legends for 250k and 375k. Your next tier 2 would cost 500k, as would your first tier 1.)

How to Track This:

It’s highly suggested to make a thread or separate post in your stats to track your earnings in each area, much like people already do for their wages in each profession. This is exactly like that, with a couple things to keep in mind:
