The Mists of Albion are back! And in these mists, players will find a 25 percent increase in fame acquisition in all in-game activities. Animals die for food, men for money, and Albion Online players for fame.
Fame is rewarded to players for interacting with the world of Albion, referred to as experience in other games. Actions that award fame include: gathering, crafting, PVP, PvE, farming, building structures, etc.
Combat fame is awarded by defeating Mobs and Creatures in the Overworld, Dungeons, Expeditions, Hellgates, and also defeating players in PvP. Depending on the tier of the enemy mob or creature different amounts of fame are awarded. Higher-tier enemies give more fame than lower tiers.
In addition, the location of the mob or creature also determines fame. For example in Solo Randomized Dungeons designed for a single player, the fame awarded on a similar mob is less than the same kind of mob in Group Randomized Dungeons which are designed for multiple players in a party, and therefore tougher to defeat. Generally speaking, the tougher, and more risky the method is, the more rewarding it tends to be.
The gathering is one of the few areas on the Destiny Board that a player cannot buy their way into as the fame is awarded from venturing out to gather the resource in question. In general, the best way is to go by the most optimal farming for your chosen gathering profession. For more information on optimal gathering see the "optimal" section in Gathering. Other tactics worthwhile are employing other players for escorting you on adventures such as Aspect hunting or venturing in the Roads of Avalon.
