    If you consider yourself a tamer and are not controlling your pets with 120 taming skill and 120 lore skill than shame on you if you lose control of your pets. Just my opinion.

    I have lots of pets that my non 120 tamers use and still have 99% control.

    There are 7 pets that cannot be controlled 99% of the the time at GM Taming and Lore. Five of the seven cannot be owned unless you are over 101 skill. What are you trying to get at?

    I'm getting at these posts that are wondering how they lose control or simply lose their pets. I've been playin this game long enough to know that any tamer control slot you plug your numbers into can't be trusted. If you want the least chance to lose a pet, use what legendary tamer skills were meant for. Thats my point.

    Most of the "I lost my _____ " posts are due to the fact that players usually don't follow good taming practice:
    a. they don't use the stable before logging
    b. they consistently break line of sight for extended periods (park it somewhere) this will cause it to lose loyalty, even the 0 taming required pets
    c. they probably don't feed their pets (even the 0 taming required pets)
    d. try to use a pet they are no longer qualified to use

    These are independent of your taming skill (except d. if you no longer meet the minimum taming requirements). Having more Animal Taming will only effect how often your pet disobeys a command. You get several chances to feed it before it goes wild due to disobedience. Now I'm not saying there are no instances where the game is to blame, but it is usaully due to player neglect.

    I have been using the Stratics control chance calculator for years and have found it to be pretty spot on.
