Honor Taming

    Just need a bit more clarification.

    When we try to tame a dragon type or nightmare etc, we have 5% for a successful attempt, since 95% of the time we will "anger the beast", and prompt the creature to attack us.

    However, if I trigger honor virtue, from my understanding, within the 3-5 minute range, I do not only avoid any aggression from monsters and animals but also I will no longer anger the beast.

    My question is, when it is stated that we will not anger the beast under honor virtue, does that mean, we eliminated the 95% of failure attempt? So basically we have 100% success to attempt?

    If that is not the case, how does the system show that we didn't succeed to initiate the attempt? since the creature isn't angered under honor virtue.

    OR DO WE STILL ANGER them?

    Thanks!

    The pets still go aggro, they just don't attack you. They rustle around, and make funny noises. You, in the mean time, should be trying to get as many attempts in as possible until you get "you start to tame the creature". Hopefully you tame it before your honorwears off, but in most cases you will probably need to precast invis near the end. Ethereal voyage (spellweaving) also works as an in between if you fail. You may get in 2 attempts from each try.

    You will get the "You anger ..." message as normal. The Mob will take NO action towards you.

    You will get the normal You Begin to tame message and the Mob will take NO action towards you.

    Other Mobs, that have not already aggro'd on you will also take no action towards you.

    Mobs that are already aggro'd on you WILL take action towards you.

    You can drop Aggro by invising yourself.

    If you haven't already and you play 2D, you should make a UO macro like this:

    use skill animal taming
    wait for target
    target last

    Get the monster on your target macro as your last target (by using animal taming on them once or some other way of targetting them) then you can hold down the key you have assigned to the above macro. This will spam attempts to tame, and once you see you have started taming you can stop holding the key down.
     
  5. Or create one in the Enhanced Client: Use Taming Skill > Current Target. Then set it to repeat 10 times. Just hit the macro key as you need. Works great!

    I target the mob using non-legacy so it shows the targeting circle, then I have my scroll wheel UP set to Cursor Target Last. I spam my taming key F12 while I roll the wheel up. I can get tons of taming attempts in prior to the creature getting to hitting range if its low on health
