I was out taming ridgebacks for taming gain, and noted that this one ridgeback would simply not tame, after over 30 attempts. Other ridgebacks were taming within, say, 5 attempts or so. I experimentally removed my Taming talisman, dropping my taming skill to 86.3 and attempted a tame. I saw the message "This animal has had too many owners and is too upset for you to tame". But when I put the talisman back on, putting my taming up to 91.3, this message does not appear, and the animal simply fails the tame attempt. I'm thinking that perhaps this is a bug, and the "too many owners" should be displaying when I have the talisman on, but is not.
