    I've been away for a while. I always thought you provoke X to kill Y....when Y dies, you get fame ( assuming nothing else touches Y). This is no longer the case?

    All i do all day in UO is provoking reptalons to kill Miasma.
    I've killed probably 3000 Miasma so far and I've only gotten a few "you have gained a little fame" messages. 99% of the time i get no fame messages. No one else is touching Miasma except the reptalon i provoke. When i use my tamer (single dragon) to kill, I get all the fame. What's the deal.

    Short answer; the Devs hate Bards and love Tamers.

    Was hoping there was a special set of rules i missed out on. Like, for a bard to get fame he/she must be within 2 tiles and wear a red shirt or something. Anything.

    Sadly this is true for most things. My bard does not gain in Valor when doing spawns while grouped with a Sampire friend. Tamer standing still doing nothing in the same group not even using the GDragon gets valor every kill... and I mean literally doing nothing, sometimes not even standing inside the spawn area. - woops just saw this was a month old post.
