Fame Earning

When your character dies, you earn fame after the great deeds your character has achieved. Fame can be used to buy certain items in-game, and also a requirement for completing Class Quests.

There is a certain “base fame” your character receives, and the different achievements add a percentile bonus to this base value. Your total earned fame will be the sum of both.

How does one earn base fame?

There are 2 factors which gain you base fame. The major factor is experience points and the other minor factor is your active playing time.

Experience Points

The more you have, the more fame you earn. The exp to fame ratio varies, depending on your total experience points. The following chart shows the exp per fame ratio at each exp section:

Section EXP (from) EXP (to) Base Fame (per section) Base Fame (accumulated) EXP per Fame
3 (start)4500045400171400
3 (end)79734801001175366
5 (start)10110010280012181700

Up to around 100k exp (you usually will have a base fame around 225 at this point), you gain fame relatively fast. Then at 100k exp upwards, you will constantly gain 1 fame only every 2000 exp.

Some tips: Up to level 20, it’s advised to kill lesser gods and quest bosses, these give more xp thus fame comes faster. This relationship is very noticeable. If one has a very efficient god-killing class, and sits in the godlands for about an hour, you should expect about 80-100 fame. This is why there are lots of high fame archers and wizards, but not so many high fame Ninjas or Tricksters, as they are out-performed in the godlands.

Active Time

Active time is the time you spent playing RotMG. For every 6 active minutes, you gain 1 bonus base fame. Active minutes are only gained by periodically killing monsters and/or gaining monster kill assists. The active time bonus base fame is limited to 30 fame. That means after 3 active hours, you won’t gain any further active time bonus base fame and thus the only factor that determines your base fame remains your EXP.

How does one earn bonuses?

Exploring the landscape
After a million tiles seen you gain 5% bonus fame, with the title of “Explorer”. After 4 million tiles you recieve “Cartographer”, which stacks with the Explorer, and means an additional 5% bonus.
Helping others to level up
You gain bonus fame if there are 100 level-ups in your company, along with the title “Team Player”, and 10% fame bonus. If you gain 1000, you get “Leader of Men”, adding another 10%.
At your first death
Upon your first death, you gain 10% bonus fame along with 20 extra fame and the title of “Ancestor”.
At later deaths
Upon later deaths, if you achieve more fame than ever before, you gain 10% bonus fame and the title “First born”. Note that this is not best fame per character.
Completing a variety of dungeons
If you complete most kinds of dungeons, you’ll recieve the title of “Tunnel Rat” and 10% bonus fame.
Being friendly to cubes
If you don’t participate in killing any cubes, then you recieve the title “Friend of Cubes” and bonus fame. At level 20 only.
With good aim you also earn fame
Titles and fame are earned if you had at least 25% (title: “Accurate”, with 10% fame bonus), 50% (title: “Sharpshooter”, adding 10% more fame) or 75% accuracy (title: “Sniper” adding 10% more).
Killing many gods
If more than 10% of your kills are gods, you recieve the title “Enemy of the gods” and 10% bonus fame. When 50% of your kills are gods, along with the title “Slayer of the gods” you get another 10% bonus. Requires level 20.
