how do you use this skill?
2x click a shepherd's crook - target an animal in the appropriate difficulty range - target the place you want it to move to (or the person/animal you want it to follow).
It is a little fun on occasion. It used to be really fun when folks actually cared about game interaction. I used my Alkie char the other day and herded a buncha critters to WBB. The whole 2 folks that were there were amused for a little while. It's fun kinda role playing a town drunk with a pack of sheep and cows
Oh and on Human chars that JOAT deal comes in handy too. You can herd the low end farm animals for fun.
Years back I had a faction herder which I used when other factions would tame dragons and such to help defend a base. As other members of the faction would be pushing the base I'd sneak in and herd all the tames into a corner...I don't think anyone caught on to why those animals were useless.
One of the best uses for herding is to have potential tames follow you as opposed to you following them as you train. Just click a crook then the animal then yourself. Now taming is easy!
Herding can also be used to tell your own pets to go in front of you. You can also stealth and have animals follow you. I use it mainly for the title and RP purpose "Lord Almighty the Shepherd"
