    Did your alacrity icon disappear after the 15 mins? If not, that could explain the 0.2 gain.

    I will assume humans means players? Perhaps that is not the choice at that level of skill.

    Were you at Luna bank the entire time, before and after the 15 minutes?
    I've never trained tracking before but I wonder if at that level of skill you need to track something more difficult.

    I GMed Tracking just fine 3 or 4 times in Luna. But that's just the luck or lack there of of the RNG. And the UO Gods giving you grief. It happens.

    Sometimes I think I gain better without the SoA... simply because I swear sometimes I just don't get gains when using them. And if I'd have just worked the skill without one I'd probably get just the same or better. But maybe it's just me.

    What you track doesn't matter you gain when you use the skill.

    What Flutter said. You don't even need to make a choice at the gump.

    I have always had bad luck while using SOA. Used 2 while I was at 70 ninja and by the time 30 mins was over I only had gained 2.3 or something :(
