I have a tamer template where I have just 110/110 taming and lore. I was trying to control my bane dragon last night, and it refused so many times in a row that loyalty dropped down to just 'rather happy'. This particular bane is fully trained and about 4.0 on the pet rater, so he's a strong animal. Now, what I noticed is that his barding difficulty has gone from about 105 just after taming to now well over 118. My question is, has he gotten harder to control now that his skills/stats are higher? And a related question, are pets with naturally higher skills/stats harder to control and/or tame? I never noticed this challenge before because my main tamer has been 120/120 for quite some time. However, this new template allows for just 110/110; thinking this might be a problem when I set up this character a few weeks ago, I tested with some banes that were freshly tamed and didn't notice too much trouble with control. Was the string of refusals just bad luck, or did they actually get more difficult to control? Or is control difficult related to just pet type, and not the particular pet (unlike barding difficulty).
