    Soooo i have vet at 115 is it ok to keep there or is it like other skills needs to be 110 or 120?

    Also with vetting, does all healing work the same off vet like chiv, aids, gheals?

    either this was 2 stupid questions no one wanted to reply or nobody knows?
     
  3. 115 vet gives mostly neglibly higher healed hp when using bandages on pets, compared to 110. Most prefer 110 Vet or 120 vet, since the damage healed is neglible and 115 is no different from 110 for stable slot purposes.

    Vet ONLY affects bandages applied to pets - Chivalry, Greater Heals, and other methods of healing are based on that method of healing only, and are unaffected by both Animal Lore and Vet.

    On my peace tamers, I rarely go higher than 105 vet. I've got one though that goes to 110, but only because she's on Oceania and I figured it might help a bit to overcome lag delays. I wouldn't mind taking the vet to 110 on these characters for the additional stable slot, but it just doesn't fit.

    On my faction tamers with tracking, detect, hiding, and stealing, I usually lock vet somewhere between 85 and 90. When the pets are dead, the tamer's usually dead too and in skill loss, so rezzing them usually gets delayed until the tamer's out of skill loss and restocked, etc.

    On my mage tamers, I generally take vet as high as I can get scrolls for. But as pointed out earlier, 115 vet doesn't give you any more stable slots than 110 does, so either go to 120 or stick with 110 and put the extra 5 points in something else.

    Like Kaio, I use both vet and magery to keep the pets alive. Slap on a bandage and cast greater heal; repeat; repeat; repeat.

    Thanks all i appreciate it :D ya i have a ABC Tamer so im healing with aids and on rare occasion chiv so i didn't know if the chiv checked vet so thanks for clearing that up and sounds like i should drop my vet to 110 or find a 120 is there that much difference between the 2 in aids? Thanks again!

    I'm beginning to feel like a broken record...I've made this suggestion on many threads recently. One more time:

    If you use Enhanced Bandages from the Fountain of Life, you will add 10.0 to your effective Vet skill but it only affects Vetting, not Rezzing.

    I've got 18 Fountains of Life for 180 Enhanced Bandages per day and it is well worth it. (The room where keep them all looks something like a public men's room!) My warriors and Tamers use them when Healing/Vetting is critical but not for training sessions.
     
  8. How much do Fountains of Life cost? Is there an account age limit?

    look on your shard for Heritage tokens that is where they come from. Any account age can use them.
