Fame, also known as Reputation, is a stat in Final Fantasy XI. It is used to determine how well-known the player character is to NPCs. It is an important stat for quests, for an NPC is more willing to give a task to a character with more fame than to a nobody. The more quests the player goes on, the more fame they receive, which in turn allows them to go on bigger quests, which leads to better rewards and more fame, and so on. Fame differs by region, and also affects some merchants. The more fame the player has, the bigger discounts on items they can receive, from 20% to 40%.
