    This probably just a single response question

    If you honor your opponent and a pet like swamp dragon attacks the honored enemy do you lose perfection?

    Sorry if this is a silly question:blushing:

    As far as I know ... you cannot honor other players. (Well theres this older 'I honor thee'-thingy, but it has nothing to do with the virtue and the benefits for bushido from it.)

    How about honoring monsters and then having your pets help in attacking it? Any effect on honor then? I would expect that you wouldn't get honor if you fought a monster that way, but I'm too knew to know for sure.

    I don't know if you lose perfection, but I'm pretty sure you won't gain any unless you actually strike your opponent with your weapon.

    As far as honor goes, you can gain it while using your pets. Many tamers work their honor up while using pets.

    Shelley, thanks for clearing that up for me. Glad to know my tamer can get honor that way. You still get honor if you use magery in the attack, right?

    I'm not so much worried about gaining honor as i am about getting the damage increase from perfection in Bushido. It wouldn't really make sense to be able to honor opponents if you were going to use pets. That is why i ask.

    Thank you!

    Honorable combat is defined as:

    * Allowing your opponent to damage you first.
    * Engaging in one-on-one combat.
    * Not using ranged weapons, unless you stay in the same spot where you honored your opponent, or you only damage your opponent while adjacent to them.
    * Not allowing your pets or summoned creatures to help you during the battle.
    * Avoiding the use of poison.

    The amount of Honor you gain from defeating your opponent is determined by how closely you followed the above guidelines for honorable combat, as well as your opponent's level of fame.​

    So it's harder for tamers or summoners to gain honor compared to a warrior.
    For direct damage characters, it's harder for archers and mages to gain honor compared to a melee warrior.

    A tactic I use on my mage to max honor gains is to let my EVs whittle away the mob's HP, then precast ebolt and run adjacent to the mob to release the kill shot.



    As to the OP's concern regarding damage increase from perfection, it is not affected by your pets' (or other mobs'/players') damage to your target.
