Right around Christmas a benefit taming competition was held for the Moonglow Zoo on Catskills. I used my 84 tamer to compete. I was surprised to find that I could get 45 points for polar bears and 30 points for white wolfs depsite that I could get skill gains from the WWs but not the PBs. Seemed backwards. This past weekend I noticed that the zoo had lost approx 500000 points to decay since the benefit. I thought that maybe nobody had been donating since the benefit and if I donated a few creatures per day, the decay would cease. I went through my cursed collection and got my taming up to 110 through jewels and started rounding up unicorns. The zoo level dropped overnight and I figured it was a weekly decay. I found out I was very wrong when it dropped again on Tuesday morning. I started keeping track of the levels from that point: Time Points Delta 1/14/2014 7:23 7691167 1/14/2014 15:08 7711700 20533 1/15/2014 6:42 7707724 -3976 1/15/2014 9:32 7712750 5026 1/15/2014 15:06 7723500 10750 1/15/2014 20:01 7732250 8750 1/16/2014 4:43 7831166 98916 1/16/2014 5:26 7832166 1000 1/16/2014 12:39 7850000 17834 1/17/2014 5:58 7814750 -35250 1/17/2014 16:56 7893686 78936 1/18/2014 6:16 7897750 4064 1/19/2014 5:41 7851633 -46117 After 5 days the point total is approximately 160000 higher than the starting level. During that time the decrease total was approximately 85000 which means about 33% of the possible gain was lost to decay. Based on this it appears that the decay rate is between 0.6 and 1.0% every other day. To me, this is extreme. A drop of 50000 points is equal to taming 100 pairs of unicorns or donating 750000 gp every two days just to stay even. Please consider maybe making it a 0.1% drop weekly or maybe set a weekly target of 10000 donation points (that would be 20 pairs of unicorns or 150000 gp). If the weekly goal is reached then no decay, if not then a 20000 point decay. Have it so the total only increases by the number of points past the weekly goal. That way some maintence is required, but the frustrating drastic decreases would likely stop.
