Could someone clarify Raptors for me?

    Hello, just back to playing the game after a little 5 year break :]

    I was looking through the taming page on Stratics and it lists the Raptor at 65.1 taming requirement.

    I found some and had three different results (on different raptors) when trying to tame (at 86 tame, 88 lore):

    1) this animal cannot be tamed
    2) you have no chance of taming this animal
    3) you anger the beast

    The 3rd one I get. But why would I get the 1st two results? Is the info on stratics correct?

    it was correct from beta, I tested it myself raising taming a point at a time till I found the level at which I could make a taming attempt. The 'this animal cannot be tamed' message would probably related to a 'summoned' raptor, they call in friends, but only the spawning one can be tamed.

    This is the correct info on the raptor. The stratics info is wrong!

    107.1

    The ones that spawn from a raptor are considered summons and can not be tamed. Its tricky to get the right one but what I did was pull its bar before arrgo then lure it to relative safety. Making sure I know which is the original, kill the 2 that it summons then tame it.

    Unfortunately of a 2 slot pet that takes such high level skill, it is underpowered and does not spawn the pair of summons post tame.

    I dont really understand why pretamed they seem very formidable but post tame they seem well...tame.

    hmm, it was correct, there must have been a change during beta. I will rectify the error.
