I have done 9 NCR side quests and I am still accepted. I was looking over the strat guide and I noticed there are only roughly ~18 sidequests(not counting freeform quests) that actually give NCR rep.
Just curious how long and how many quests did it take to get "liked" with them? I mean I think I did two quests for novac and become Idolized, but I'm sure these faction values probably differ for the major ones.
I'm wondering about this as well. I had to kill crimson caravan for a certain quest but it also gave me NCR infamy all of a sudden. Now I'm a merciful thug to them while I just want to be liked/idolized.
This game is wierd about rep. Between Mojave Outpost, Primm and Nipton I had the NCR ready to get down on their knees and make an O-Face for me. I also got the Followers of Apocalypse and the Legion to like me. So far I have been very careful with my choices and the only faction that outright hates me right now are the Powder Gangers.
You guys can have your shorter kill times with your fancy sharp swords and bludgeoning weapons. I'll spend the extra 5 minutes looking awesome. - Typhlax
