#3973 kill announcement of any player who selected to attack


i killed a green dragon and i got all the XP for it but someone else was listed as having killed it with me. they didn't even come near it they said they had just selected attack but not come close and they said they weren't using a crossbow.

can it be that if you just choose attack on a green dragon and do not hit it then you get the kill?

    I tried to replicate this error with other monsters and it has. It seems like the players who have press the attack get the recognition for the killing. It has it logic as players have to be near the monster and once you press the attack button, why not help in the slaughter?

    I wouldnt bother too much with this issue anyway.

    Happy new year!!

    the kill is announced as done by all attacking players.
    A player is only rewarded for the kill if he actually did damage the creature.
