    This post is made out of reading people talking about pets and tamers, sooo....

    I love people that relied totally on that pet calculator thingy. I could sell a super awesome looking pet to someone for top dollar knowing its hidden skill factors were so low that the thing could barely hit anything or even defend itself.
    As a reminder to you that don't know what I'm talking about, There (based on my findings) are at least 8 or more skills that higher leveled pets have that you don't have access to. These are added to the total skill points of the barding total score (which maxs out to the common eye of 160 points, but yes it goes higher.) Me talking about those values right now even makes me want to shut up, being the best tamer means that some things have to remain my magical knowledge, but sometimes I have to let a few tidbits out.
    I have never shy'd to the fact that it was my opinion that I was, and based on the way people talk on forums, "One" of the best tamer on Siege Perilous. I was Krews and Guardian KX and many other well known tamers. I was cocky and would take on the tamer first in any fight. I had to defend myself 1000's of times that I was the skill base in fights and not the pet. Hell anyone can tow a dragon around and say all kill, but I, and my pets, held the upper ground based on my personal ability and the pets abilities (that I picked, and trained, and used).
    Being a tamer is easy, being a good tamer that actually cares about your pets is extremely hard.
    When you tame a pet up to what you think is max, then you have to watch its barding score. Youd most likely think since all skills are maxed out that what you have now is a pet that's done... Its Not. The longer it stays at max and doesn't die, the longer you keep using it to kill reasonable difficult foe, and the longer you own it the MORE powerful it becomes. If you remember to write down its barding difficulty when you hit its max seen point value, then the more you continue to use it, the more the value will increase .1 at a time. It not dying, being used occasionally, and longer ownership slowly increase these values.
    I have sold very few REALLY GOOD PETS in the past. Those people that bought these pets KNOW of there power, and after a good tongue trashing, usually only take them out to make easy money or want to kill something fast, then there put away again.
    I'm still not playing or planning a comeback. Regardless of the still long-term hate that Diablo receives, and I now as well feel about him I have to say this... That Boy Listened. I taught him a huge factor of my tamer knowledge and he soaked it up. If I ever had a pet to sell he was usually first in line to buy it. Usually I sold it to someone else. When the Dreadmare came out he surpassed my knowledge when he added PvP Mage to the mix.

    Anyway im done for now, this rant was based on the tamer calculator and nothing else. Its a good base tool but lousy for true long term pets.

    Peace to you all except the overlords that rule these pages and don't allow free speech.

    Long Live Siege P.

    What did you do ? Plug your pets tail into your hair braid and become one with it to learn these secret skills that no one else knew about ? Maybe it's the "Quickening" in the animal kingdom. Either way, my gosh you're just awesome....wow. Feel free to come back in another 6 months and gloss yourself as the greatest "something else" ever witnessed . I look forward to reading that one too.

    It is beyond me why letting a few tidbits about true taming is labeled as hate.
    Look at Garthgreys resulting posts and label that hate, or envie or whatever.
    I left UO again based on a few things... Friends that stabbed me in the back, Friends that gave up trust based not on actions to them but the people that you knew (lost access to tons of houses when Sprago knived my back after doing 50+ hours of sorting 10000+ BODs for him and making him 100's of runics), Dealing with the same old drama in game (TRU/Diablo/Blah and Blah), Dealing with the constant house hording of the GIL guild, Trying my best to get new people here and having them strangled out of existence by the same PKs over and over again (but this is Siege after all and part of what i love about it, but normal Barneyland sharders couldnt accept re-arming and no insurance, and only one insured item was beyond thier scope of understanding)(add to the fact that a few barneyland losers only thrived on running naked tamers and giving counts to people for idiotic reasons), then the token issue that dropped prices in the crapper and instant assinine tamers and mages with high skills, and lets not forget a company that has given up on a game that we're continually paying for.
    Those are my opinions, not hate. Loved then game 6 years ago when Luna was a continual hot spot. People move on, new games, less drama... Whatever.

    Peace to you all and Long Live Siege P.

    You sound resentful, that's all.
    I enjoyed your vendors and pets.
    You were very active, I wish I could participate more.
    I don't want you to misunderstand me....It was just a joke.
    Siege would welcome you back!
    Who ended up with your accounts?

    Yes I still use some of your pets from your stall. And your vendors are surely missed, lot of work went into them and that is respectful.

    I disagree with your assessment of the actual happenings. Bottom line is you discarded me like trash for the guild I was in.
    Yes I made a few gold for selling trash bods at 100 in a book (you told me I could), no I didn't get 1/2 the rewards (I kept maybe 5 or 6 runics, spined at that for imbueing). Yes you provided the resources and the gold for upgrading the BoDs, but forget the long boring HOURS of work I did for you. I never kept or stole one item from you, I never treated you with disrespect or unfairness or even attacked you in guild fights (tho yes I tried a few times with Sprago AFTER you kicked me to the curb, but never one on one, just in faction fights that we were SUPPOSED to do as part of normal gameplay).
    My loyalty and friendship to you was open, caring, and beyond a guild tag. But to you I was as much use to you after all the work I did as a used piece of toilet paper. You never informed me of ANYTHING, you just removed me totally from every house and then ignored my questions as to WHY.
    Your open disregard and backstabbing actions were manipulated with the skill of a Romulan. The tea was lovely, good day lady's.

    Wow. I have made a lot of enemies on siege. So many that I can count my remaining friends on the shard on one hand.. How many alts does cybernickel have? XD

    Back on topic.. You (op) seem to want to chase off your remaining friends even while you no longer play.

    Wow.

    Not sure if he is looking for pity or hoping that people express hatred for him. Other than Diablo I have never seen a player on the shard elicit such a reaction from others.
