    Geez, it's been too long... What's the best bang-for-buck way to gain from 103.4 - 110? :D

    I am by far no expert at taming but I found using a ring to bring my level up to or above 110 allows me to tame Ki-rins and get good gains.

    I have all my skills stoned except taming, lore and a little magery (only 95 magery for this task). My total skill points = less than 350 so at I can get a good forced gain rate.

    I got this idea when I had 104 pnts and with a +10 taming ring I got to 108.5 within a five or six day span. I only spend an hour or two per evening doing this. Sometimes less due to time restrictions so 5-6 days isn't really as long as it sounds. Someone with more time to play should certainly do better than I.

    Now that I'm over 108 I switched to a +2 taming ring and I'm still gaining.

    On edit: I forgot to mention that I power scrolled myself to a 120 taming cap. I know not if it makes a difference in gaining.

    Independent brokers are probably the best bet for soulstones these days.

    But.. I believe single use soulstone fragments are craftable by alchemists now so there's always that avenue to explore.

    Anyway - until I can score some Soulstones - can anyone help out with a more "direct" gain method for Taming? I know giant toads and frenzied ostards are the best near-50% success beasties for my skill level, but they're not exact easy to deal with or even find. :D
     
  8. Kirins may not be 50% but they will give you steady gains

    Cu's will give you decent gains at the skill lvl as well. Not sure if they're 50% but I am around 103 as well and gained .5 in about 45 mins.

    I was a bit surprised though, and after that I didn't gain again for about another 2 hours. ;p

    ridgebacks. ridgebacks carried me through 110 easy as pie, and they're non-aggro too.

    Sure, they are, but the 10000000000000000000 savages/paragon dire wolves/etc/etc sure aren't. ;)

    Once I got over 100 I just went for my .1 a day.... I would tame 1 white wolfe a day. I've been told you can do bulls thru to 120....
