    I decided to work up my tamer since coming back to the game. He's in the 90's and gains have been ridiculously slow. I'm on Sonoma so there are only fresh tames to level off of and I've been doing grizzly bears and great harts in Ish.

    I started today at 92.9 taming and 98.7 lore. After an hour and a half if only gained .3 taming and .5 lore.

    Am I doing something wrong or is just going to be a looooooong road to 120?

    I have found also, if ya get tired of the bulls, that you can gain off white wolves on arctic island, and also Dameon Temple is good place to grab those 2 drakes that spawn there and get gains off those.
    I would get one tamed then park him over in a corner while i tamed the second one. Had rune made right beside
    The Royal zoo on Moonglow so i could gate them both about a house distance from the donation box, donate them both and run back thru gate before it closed, and tame 2 more. Gets your museum points up if nothing else, and you will get some skill points off the drakes. Any way u go about it tho, its gonna be slow, so its
    best to keep yourself entertained :)

    Yeah, this is what I was afraid of. Thanks for the feedback folks, nice to know that I'm not doing something wrong.

    The Drake idea is an interesting one. I think I'm going to try that just to break up the boredom of sitting in Jhelom listening to the chicken noise while I tame bull after bull after bull after bull after bull after...

    I have about a dozen characters so far that I've trained up to 120 real taming. I finish their training by taming unicorns (or ki-rins if the tamer character is male) in Ilshenar or in Malas. Best gains seem to occur when taming skill is in the 104-109 range, so I will usually use jewelry to boost skill to that point and then take it off when real skill actually hits that range.

    At that level it is slow...... luckily, there are pink and blue scrolls which can help cover the gap to 120.0 faster....
    Or, even faster, use +taming skill items to reach 120.0 .....

    Blue Scrolls are scrolls of alacrity, they work as you guessed, like the black rock area, or the New Haven accelerated gain quests. They last for 15 minutes.
    Pink Scrolls are Scrolls of Transendence, they actually add to your skill by the number of points on the scroll. Both types can come out of treasure chests (pinks in fel only level 4 upwards)
    pinks also come from working champ spawns and from Corgul.
    Random blues can come from clean up points.
