    Ok so my guildie was asking about raising Herding if there's a trick to it or if there's a good method. Anyone have some insight? What are the current training methods?

    I think training to around 60 is good enough. At that level if you fail, you immediately are able to retry, with no delay timer. If you have stealth trained, you can herd without being being reveled. There is no limit to the amount of critters you can herd at one time. However, they will not recall or gate.

    Its a great skill for tamers, as it allows you to herd many animals away from the spawn.
     
  3. Set yourself a macro to use skill herding, target last and then target yourself. Keep on going with that macro. Doesn't matter which animal really, although Gamens at about 75 I believe (curse the missing forums) will help you to pick up again once you start to slow down. UOAssist is very helpful with this as well, but it can be done in 2d alone.

    I thought Herding was purposeless these days?

    Bah, herding is very useful in Felucca. Because of the animal ability to trap players, it's fun to bring a herd of animals to surround a mark. Unless they have total refresh pots handy, they are stuck where they are standing, to give a thief time to snoop their pack...la
