    I wanted to throw my template here and get some feedback from you guys before I start getting power scrolls. I am a little curious about the benefits of taking some of the skills past GM, and if it is worth it. Also, questioning eval int and med, but not sure what to take in there place (if anything). Looking forward to your feedback.

    Taming 120
    Animal Lore 120
    Spellweaving 120
    Vet 100
    Magery 100
    Eval Int 100
    Med 60

    This would be my natural skills without jewelry. What do you think?

    Actually it looks like I can control a greater dragon 99% with 110 taming/lore. So if I don't plan on taming anything on my own I could put 20 points elsewhere. Maybe 120 Margery/Eval (with gems)? Would be nice get some chiv on here to deal with mortal wounds as well. Any thoughts?

    don't forget the masteries are affected by real skill so when the xpac comes out they won't be as effective.

    Here is my current tamer template:

    Taming 90 (115 with jewels and mark of travesty)
    Animal Lore 95 (115 with jewels and mark of travesty)
    Spellweaving 120
    Vet 95
    Magery 120
    Eval Int 120
    Med 80 (90 with scrapper)

    I have no issues controlling my GD by using jewels. Also have full set of spells you can use for offense and defense with magery and spellweaving. Probably my second most used toon lately behind my mystic mage weaver. The masteries will be based on real skill, but you will still be able to access them as long as you have 90 natural skill. Anything above 90 is basically just a bonus.

    Would it not make sense to take the non-mastery skills to 120 and jewel the others instead?

    Personally, for this toon, no. I have really good Legendary Jewels that have tamer skills on them and other mage related mods. The masteries aren't going to be so great that it would be worth spending all kind of time changing up the template.

    Also... getting taming to high levels is very expensive and/or difficult.
