Tacts on my other toons has always raised there along with the other skills.

    Couple of things:
    1 - Is Tactics set to raise?
    2 - Are you below your skills cap?
    3 - If 1 and 1 above are OK, then are you fighting mobs that are at your current skill level?

    For #3 if you have access to one of the Crystal Ball of Knowledge or the Skill Tutor Statuette, either of which will tell you if your opponent is "within" the proper range to gain... If you don't have access to either of these, then you'll want to go to the Hunter's Guide here on Stratics and look at the Tactics level of whatever you are considering fighting. (Scroll down to the bottom of the page for whatever Monster you are fighting and you'll see its Tactics listed there). You need to be within 20 or 25 points of that monster or you will not gain.

    All of the new Shame monsters have tactics skill at too high a level for you to gain. You will need to fight lower end mobs at first. Try starting on old haven and get to 50 with the tactics quest. Then go and kill lizard men for a bit. There ate plenty at the Tokuno Sleeping Dragon spawn or the first level of a reptile spawn on Ilshenar or Fel Lost Lands. You could use just about any low end spawn. Get into the 70s in tactics then try heading back to level 1 in Shame again.

    Go to level 1 Deceit and kill mummies, they should gain very quickly and take you all the way to 70 at which point you can gain off hired fighters from Jhelom fighter pits

    For a quick and free skill boost you can do the new heaven tactics quest, free alacrity gains up to 50 fighting the undead nasties in the old town there.

    The dread lord couldn't have been more comprehensive in his reply after there :)
