    I was just wondering if anyone else keeps a trophy for certain landmark skill gains. I have a hart trophy hanging in my house made from the great hart I GM'd taming years ago, and a nightmare in the stable who I gained my last .1 in taming, lore, and vet to reach 120 in each (saved my GGS in all 3 so it'd be on one creature).

    I think it's neat from an achievement standpoint or what have you. However, for me, I have trouble enough keeping my stable arranged with just the assortment of pets I already have! Let alone, having historical trophy pets. :D

    I don't have enough room to keep pets that were tamed at certain landmarks. I have enough issues with keeping the pets that I think are too good to toss. That's why I keep making more tamers, and I STILL run out of stable room.

    I do keep trophies though. They tend to be unique or very old pets (who are more like family).

    I tamed a kitsune last week that I can't get rid of. It will take up stable room for the rest of my UO life. Stats aren't the best but it has godly resists (rated 4.2), just 3 total off. That much closer to me finding one with perfect resists. (My ongoing project. I speciallize in little foxes)

    When I first read this post I thought the OP was asking if anyone "made" trophies out of special pets. You know with a trophy kit. Yuck

    I used to keep the first of any major pet I tamed - first dragon, first mare and so on. The only one I still have is my first unicorn, and then only because she is a carnivore and quite rare now.

    Yeah I am doing much the same thing you are. Not with little foxes though. :) More with fire steeds and for kicks and giggles sakes...nightmares. Yesterday I got a fire steed (also rated 4.2) and a nightmare...rated 3.9.
     
  7. I can't say I am keeping trophies per se, but I do have the first dragon I ever tamed, back in 1998, in my stable. I guess I was lucky, because I have never found a better regular dragon. I know that dragons were nerfed at some point...but I don't remember what the nerf was (lower HP maybe?)...but even after the nerf, she is still a 5+ on the pet power calculator, and can stand up to almost anything in the game with me vetting her...including Greater Dragons. Obviously, since she is that old, she has maxed all stats and skills, so she is 7x GM, and has max stats for a regular dragon.

    I also have the first jet black nightmare I ever tamed. Again, I guess there was nerf after the fact, because he is a remarkable nightmare...one of the best I have seen.

    I am really glad they introduced pet bonding, because without that, I would have lost these two pets years ago.

    I just wish I had been smart enough to have tamed an Ancient Wyrm when you still could. That has always been the Holy Grail of taming to me.

    Oh... well... *whistles and looks the other way* Actually, the great hart trophy I mentioned is a trophy kit trophy. When I GM'd off of the hart, I brought it back to my house, logged in with my crafter, and sorta diced it up. :)
