Firstly, I'm at 103.0 Animal Taming (real skill), 110.0 Animal Lore, and 110.0 Veterinary. 85.0 Magery. Does Animal Lore contribute to how difficult a tame chance is? If so, my idea was to use Soul Stones to house Veterinary and Animal Lore, so that taming would be more challanging. So that I could tame lower level creatures and still get gains. Would this work? I may have a misconception about what Animal Lore actually contributes though, so please set me straight. Also, I read the section on GGS: the lowest combined skill level it stated was something like 350.0 total points. Is there faster gains if you had say, a total of 200.0 or is it the same from 0.0 total skill points up to 350.0 total skill points? Finally, I just came back to UO a couple days ago; I've been gone since 2004, so I have clearly missed quite a bit. Cu-Sidhe: are these hostile towards positive karma characters? An elf is the only one that can tame them, correct? Greater Dragons: the pet control calculator's link doesn't take me to a calculator. What is the required and the recommended Taming & Lore to effectivly control a greater dragon? Thanks everyone. p.s. I'm glad to be back!
