Yes, this is probably a question asked too many times but I've not been able to find the answers I'm looking for so thought I might ask... With the help of so many here Tamers on Europa we've been able to acquire some great pets for my wife's character. Matter of fact, with the tremendous assistance of Galladin, we are the proud parents of a fantastic White Wrym! (Without his help there was no way it could/would have happened - Thanks again Galladin!) Problem is now that I've gotten a chance to see how much fun a Tamer can be I've been thinking of starting one for myself - probably on Atlantic. Torture though the skill may be to get started once you are moving it is great fun and goes good with a slow connection! Knowing that female tamers can have Unicorns and males Ki-Rins (there may be other differences I'm not aware of) what are the benefits of Elf vs. Human - aside from the increased mana and Cu Sidhe (human would have to wear Pads)? Without using an advanced character token: What are the best skills to start out with? Music and Peace or Taming and Lore? Perhaps Taming and Peace? Peace has been a true bear to tame... no pun intended. With a Token it seems pretty simple a choice: Start with Music and Peace - if getting a Tamer char. Or, Taming and Lore - if starting a Bard. Which of these would be best for using a Token? Choose a Bard or a Tamer? (I'd have to drop or stone a bard skill to place magery on the Bard template though) Thanks for your time and to all those that have been such a great help!
