    Anyone can gain honor... but only people with bushido at 50.0 or higher gain a damage bonus from it, the damage bonus applies to Weapon Damage only though.

    Anyone can honor a target and kill it with a pet or magery but they don't gain as much honor as a dexer. I know a lot of tamers honor themselfs to tame greater dragons. One other trick is to honor yourself if you get raided at a champ and get enemies surrounded by spawn.

    Honor can be gained by everyone but the methods are different:
    - If you are a melee character all your damage will be converted in honor.
    - If you attack with range weapons or magic all your damage will be converted in honor, but if you move the counter reset.
    - Pet and summons damage count only for 10%.
    - Using poison reduces the total points earned.

    Gaining honor needs to be seriously reworked. Mages are screwed in the current system as they aren't able to tank like a dexxer/sampire can, and they are restricted to one slayer (spellbook) and whatever SDI they can manage (compared to the easy-to-meet damage cap for melee).

    Remove the movement and first strike penalties.

    Then add Honor gains for BOTH participants of a duel in an arena. More for the victor, less for the loser.

    ?? mages have problem with honor you must be mistaken they gain it just fine! its mages without weapon skill that cant tank put on a mage weapon or get defencive wrestle or wrestle going and you will be knight in no time. seriously if you want to wear a spellbook get wrestle! oh wa wa wa you cant fit in that extra power skill you will survive alot better if you do though
