    There's been a bit of a debate going on in U.Hall over the issue of whether or not it's fair to base the number of stable slots on your tamer's taming, vet, and lore skills enhanced by jewelry and other items. Some are arguing that the stable slot calculation should be based solely on your tamer's "real" skills.

    Since I have a lot of tamers (yeah, I'm goofy about them), this discussion got me to wondering how many pets my many tamers would have to dump if a change along these lines went into effect today. After looking at all my tamers and their pets, it looks like ten of them would have to bid farewell to a couple of pets. After looking at the affected tamers, I do have to say I'm not too worried either because most of them have "duplicates" of some types of pets and I'm still working on many of them.

    My list of tamers and the types of pets they own and stable slots they use today and what they are actually entitled to based on their real taming, vet, and lore skills is listed below. How about you? How would such a change affect you? I'm also curious about the skill combinations and types of pets most tamers have these days, so post what you have and let's compare! [Edited to add: I'm asking about skill combinations because there have also been some discussions about giving more weight to "real" skills rather than skill obtained from jewelry and items. Am asking about types of pets because I'm curious about which types of pets people have kept after the introduction of the dread warhorses and greater dragons.]

    If you need help calculating stable slots, the Pacific Ranger's Council has a nice calculator on their website: http://www.strangeworld.com/uo/prc/prc.php or you can figure it out the hard way using the info on the official UO site: http://www.uoherald.com/guide/skill_35.php#l.

    To answer the question first .... probably 3 on each account.

    Wow, you mean the apparent ignorance that you can NOT stable pets with your jewelry off?

    That is EXACTLY in keeping with the whiny people in that thread.

    Take your jewelry off and you lose the pet unless you get a clue fast.

    Take your jewelry off and you CAN NOT stable your pet unless you get a clue.

    The concept of basing the Stables Slots on REAL skill levels, as rationalized by the Current Change in the thread your mentioning is a monumental leap of moronic logic.

    Lets see now, let us equate a PASSIVE THING as in CAN NOT AFFECT CURRENT EVENTS to an ACTIVE THING that is 100% PURE UNADULTERATED ABOUT THE CURRENT EVENT.

    In Context, the difficulty in raising taming vs the difficulty in raising the skill that was affected by the change, is what conservatively, 100 times more difficult?

    FINE MAKE TAMING A PASSIVE SKILL TO RAISE AND CAN BE SKILLED UP AS FAST AS THE SKILL THE CHANGE AFFECTED.

    Such that some one COULD REALISTICALLY RECOVER THE SKILL POINTS IN THEIR REAL LIFE LIFE TIME.

    Aaron, I have characters with both mining and lumberjacking skills. They each have a fire beetle and two pack animals. When it's time to mine, I just use the fire beetle and leave the pack animals stabled. When it's time to lumberjack, the pack animals come out of the stable and the fire beetle also stays out, or it could be stabled if I feel like having the character walk instead of ride.

    How many pack animals are you using at one time? Do you need a fire beetle? If yes, which shard? I'll be happy to tame one for you if it's a shard I play on.

    And characters without sufficient taming, lore and vet skill can only have 2 pets in the stable at once. They can still have bonded (or unbonded) pets out of the stable at the same time, as long as they don't exceed 5 control slots.

    Haven't got any pets I'm selling just now, so I think all I'll have to do is train my fisher a bit or move her 2 trained sheep to another char. I've always been paranoid about the stable bug hitting me so I've never overstepped the mark on a regular basis.

    If it was implemented in a way that you basically couldn't add to your stables until you raised skill, you wouldn't have to lose a single pet. Especially if you were given, as I'd suggest, a grace stabling so you could swap out a pet once then the stable was locked till you trained.

    I don't think it's a good idea making pets go poof out the stables as not all players would know about the change until it was too late. Besides, even if you tried to keep jewellery on all the time, it drops off the minute you die. Which is why I think it's safer to stop stable slots being affected by jewellery and lock down a player's stable, than saying "remove the jewels and the stable slot goes instantly". That, to me, is a much worse "fix" to the stabling issue. I don't think Jeremy clarified what she meant about fixing the stabling thing, which was a bit worrying.

    This change should go hand-in-hand with more stable slots for everyone ideally, then there would be minimal losses, if any, but certain folks would have one less reason to ***** about tamers using jewels for this and that. We need 5 slots as the starting point IMO, because anyone can own and control 5 low level pets, so they should be able to stable them as well.

    Overall, I do think real skill should give tamers more than twinked skill, because with the rewards a tamer gets when they're fully trained, some effort should be necessary to get them. I know that view usually gets me called some colourful things, but I'm not one for entering popularity contests in UO :D

    My menagerie currently consists of two cu's, one hiryu, one greater dragon, one nightmare, one bake kitsune and one rune beetle.

    My skill level without jewelery is 90 taming, 110 lore, 110 vet, leaving me with... 9 stable slots I believe. (5 from 310 combined skill + 2 for 100 skills + 2 for 110 skills. Jewelery gives me 3 more, in theory. I have 7 pets, so I wouldn't lose a single one from stable changes. But I would lose my ability to make a good pack, which is my next tamer objective.

    Out of 7 tamers, I'd lose no pets. I currently have 18 empty stable slots (mainly because I have only one extra pet in training right now and I'd just did my bi-yearly cleaning of the stables last week).

    I REALLY think they need to raise base stable slots to 5. I'd love to be able to have a blue beetle for my miner/lumberjack as well as his fire beetle and pack horses. And I could train up another packy for him to use. And my mule could definately use more stable slots since she can't stable her beetle without pulling something else out when she makes golems.

    Oh and Pack instinct critters need a stabling bonus to make it easier to have them. I have two packs stabled taking up much of the space on two tamers.

    By all means every one should get 3 additional Stable Slots IF EA/M can't see their way clear to removing the stables totally and give an artifact that can make a pet a statuette then back (which can be explained in detail how it works).

    BUT

    One should argue that Jewelry should be removed from the game, rather than attack the issue indirectly from a punitive stand point.

    The reality is that Jewelry is in the game.

    Much of the game play is based on the reasons Jewelry was introduced.

    IF this path is pursued, then there will be those that rightfully call for some (and maybe more) of the following.

    You have a +str piece. Your over your natural weight limit. Your stuff goes PUFF, you know that heavy plate piece you love so much.

    Your have a +dex piece. You don't meet the requirements naturally. Your Stuff goes Puff.

    The list goes on and on.

    So you make a lot of people angry and create one humongous FEEDING FRENZY of righteous retribution.

    Pack animals should be counted as a single slot.

    Animal Taming should be a PASSIVE skill to raise, like the whining Necromancers skill is.

    Animal Taming should be able to be raised to 120 like the other skills in roughly 24 hours of passive effort. Passive in this contect means it is raised by both Lore and Veterinary AND re taming a released pet.

    Skill gain and other stats on items are different issues. OK, we get all from items, but I don't see the point in addressing all these things at once, especially if they don't need changing.

    Balancing should be done in stages, so we can see how those balances are working before we add more. Because some things may not need balancing if others are changed. I don't see any benefit to pulling every item bonus into this discussion. I'm concerned with talking taming, and in all honesty I think our profession is one of (if not THE) biggest users of skill + items. Which for me says we should be dealt with first.

    I believe that a powerful template should be challenging to build, or it becomes unfair to others if the next guy can macro his way to a full 120 tamer who flattens his mage or whatever. So no, I don't think it should be passively trained. Given that EA seem too stretched to deal with cheats, I imagine the scripted tamers would be falling out the woodwork if they could script for 24 hours and make a tamer. Eesh. Honestly, if that came about I'd be gone so fast you wouldn't see the smoke trail. Herding would be more of a challenge...

    I would suggest shortening the skill use timer so we get more tames in per hour (but not shortening it to like 2 secs lol), and giving faster gains to those who tame aggressive pets. Though to be fair to non bards, I think that extra skill gain should be on non-peaced beasties. Then if you want to train more swiftly you can, but you need to take on more risk. I don't think there would be a huge objection to faster gains if they went hand in hand with the increased risk.

    There is a rub, your opinion is that these those things do not offend you so they do not need to be dealt with.

    The reality is that there are a lot of people that play UO and they each represent a different take on things.

    So there should NOT be a distinction of doing or NOT doing a thing because an individual does NOT see them as offensive.

    IF the rule is going to be that one loses things because they take of the Jewelry then how does on realistically justify that .... well it only applies to some things.?

    I think I explained myself pretty well in my last post.

    I don't see the point in getting into an argument over whether I'm offended by this and that. I supported my arguments with reasoning, which would be a better starting point for discussion. If you have issues with items as a whole or specific ones that aren't about taming, bring it up on the right forum, but I don't see why this discussion needs to envelope every item property in game before we discuss taming.

    We will agree to NOT argue with one another as I do not do that, well rarely do I do that.

    The bolded part is to point out that every one thinks their post are based on quality reasoning. Everyone tends to get offended when their quality reasoning is "picked on (aka refuted/rebutted)".

    Yes this is the Taming forum.

    Yes this proposal is based on retribution for the Vampire Form change.

    Yes your replies are based on the belief that Jewelry has no basis in UO as you define it.

    The Reality is that the issue is NOT just about Tamers.

    The Reality is the arguments are punitive and advocating personal preference WITH NO REGARD TO CONSEQUENCES.

    This may help in the understanding of my point.

    If it is unclear HOW this applies, then here is the HOW.

    Ones proposal goes through.

    Some one gets angry with a template.

    They site THAT PRECEDENT as justification to change that thing.

    If one thinks this does NOT CASCADE, then well ..... there will be a difference of Life Experience.

    Any chance we can get this thread back to its original intent? I'd like to see more posts about the number of pets tamers have that exceed the number of stable slots they have based strictly on their real taming, lore, and vet skills. Would also like to see what kind of templates tamers are currently using and what types of pets people are hanging onto.

    As you can see from my first post, I've got tamers at all levels of skill, so if changes are made in things like number of slots, removing or giving less credit to skill jewelry, etc., I'm affected just as much as anyone else. So please don't hesitate to post if you think I'm asking because I plan to attack someone with the information later. I would just like to get some information out there for people to look at. It may surprise some people and for others it may confirm what they already know.

    Thanks!

    Edited to add: I changed the title of the thread to be less inflammatory/alarming. :)

    I and numerous others have been against skill + jewellery long before sampires were a twinkle in anyone's eye. We're tamers here, not vampires. That's UHall.

    I object to skill + items while they give the same perks as real skill with zero effort or maintenance.

    That doesn't change the fact that taming brings powerful rewards and that they're easily obtained. Does it? Less than 10 mil for an advanced char token with change to buy a few taming jewels. Instant tamer, grab any pet I want, stable what I like and keep it. I never need to train if I don't want to under the current system. Where training up would take at least a week presuming you don't get RSI or need sleep. Not to mention the time to train vet up, albeit that's pretty quick. Still takes a decent length of time all in though.

    If you think the above disparity is fair, you're entitled to have that opinion. I just prefer to see the greater reward go to the player who put in the greatest effort.

    Correct. But here we're discussing tamers, because we're staying on topic. Or trying to.

    It's called balancing.
    Un-balanced taming: rewards (great) : effort and risk (low)

    Balanced taming: rewards (high) : risk/effort (high, or higher than we have)

    Some balances are necessary whether the players themselves like it or not. The developers are more than savvy enough to know what's a fair request and what's stupid. If they didn't, greater dragons would have been gone long ago ;)

    Now, back to discussing stable slots....

    Yes you did and there is a quote, "A rose by any other name ..."

    The issue is if it is valid or not to review the Mods of Items. One can not simply pick and choose which ones.

    Wenchy is entitled to make the issue about implementing her definition of how UO should be. She can throw the ambiguous term Balance all she wants. The reality is there will never be Balance in the context of a Community, hence from a Community perspective Balance is nothing but White Noise as it has no common acceptance as to what constitutes Balance.

    I disagree, this kind of logic will only cascade out of control, beyond any ones wildest imagination.

    Either Mods are in or Mods are out.

    As for the informational part, well, it is rather peculiar that the request for information is coupled to a Change in Mods. You may never had intended it to be but your post has made it so and no, in my opinion, splitting them now is a redo of "A Rose by any other name is ...."

    EA/Mythic has the information at their finger tips and that information is based on Reality and not made up things by posters with a goal to reach. <- That does NOT mean anyone is doing that here. It is saying that this is a public, anonymous forum where nothing can be really proven or dis proven and people take serious advantage of that.

    In short the REAL information is known by those that will make the call. Posters will only state what they feel gets them the outcome they want to see.

    My two tamers have +29 Taming and +27 Taming. The +29 is at 115 and the +27 is at 120.

    The 120 is really +32 as she has the Bird.

    The 115 is really at +34 as I got him the bird last night.

    Edit per prequest:

    The 120 Tamer is a Peace Tamer (Music+Peace @ 120)
    the 115 Tamer is a Stealth Tamer (Hiding+Stealth @ 100)

    Both have residue skill points in Magery and Meditation or Focus.

    The 120 has a skill total of 271
    The 115 has a skill total of 241 (maybe closer to 251 now with the bird, if I can get the 120 lore and taming scrolls)

    End of Edit

    They both have 2 Greater Dragons, 2 Cu's, 1 Dread, 1 Hyru.

    After that it is getting hazy as there is a Mix of For Sale or In Training Cu's, Fire Steeds, Nightmares and Runic Beetles.

    If a Tamer's item of choice is a Pet, then why should they be limited to the number of pets they have?

    Is any of the Melee Templates Limited to the Items of choice? Why No they are not.

    I am unclear why the decision to remove the ability to transform a Pet to a Statuette and back was removed (although I can assume why) but it was. They seriously need to revisit that decision and reimplement it without the obvious abuses.

    Enigma, thanks for posting your information. Which other skills do you have on your tamers? Don't have to post exact values if you don't want to.
     
  19. Per request, here is my Tamer & pets:

    Taming 96ish
    Lore 110
    Vet 100

    Pets-

    Cu Sidhe
    Greater Dragon
    Hiryu
    Dread Mare
    Rune Beetle
    Pack Llama
    Nightmare (currently out of stable being used as a mount)

    I think my limit is 8, but the link Tina provided above for the tamers site had a problem with the window sizing so I couldn't see the calculated total, so I had to go by what Stratics had. Either way, I'm under my limit.

    I'll admit that I'm also infected with MTS (multiple tamer syndrome).

    I have 16 tamers spread across the west coast shards, and I'm kind of on the process of making a 17th one (still waiting for Stygian Abyss). From what I recall, only one of them is bumped up by taming jewels, but I still have enough stables for all of my pets.

    Anyway, I can't recall all the numbers and pets I have at the moment, so I'll probably post them later.

    I have 3 tamers altogether on Oceania.

    Skills listed (real skills)

    Starla (elf): 120 taming, 120 vet, 120 lore, 120 music, 120 discord, 120 mage

    My favorite pets : my blaze cu'sidhe, greater dragon
    Has almost all other pets in stable, including neon purple jack rabbit and rabbit.

    Starla (Human) : 107+ taming, 115 Lore, 110+ vet, 120 Mage, 120 resist, the rest in med. Wears high MR suit to offset low med.

    My favorite pets: red cu'sidhe, greater dragon

    Sirius (human) : 85 taming (new, aiming for 110 tame), 115 Lore, 100 vet, 120 swords, 120 Bushido, 65 Chiv, 90 Tactics.

    No pets yet, cause I just recently tinkered with this template. But I think it is going to work great.

    If only my memory extended to all my templates and who has which pets...

    Quick check of the stables has revealed that I need a serious re-shuffle courtesy of my main lass dumping her older pets on her younger siblings. The things some players do to avoid turfing out pixels :D God I'm going to be doing a lot of stable shuffling the more I look at these lists...

    Ok, Ailsa has all taming skills maxed even herding, With magery, hiding and the rest in stealth.
    Currently holding 15 pets, need to move her 2nd dread mare to one of my younger gals so she can use her greater dragon, but she'd be fine otherwise.

    2nd tamer is on a closed account with no pets, so she won't be going over! I got her to 110 tame, lore and vet. She was my first disco/provo tamer. And the other reason why no matter how many tamers I make, I'll still have a WW and mare for each, she offloaded before I retired her :D :D

    3rd tamer is disco/voke tamer (tame skills + music, disco, provo and the rest in magery) - replacement for tamer 2 but not yet trained up. Babysitting 3 of Ailsa's pets (see what I mean about dumping? lol) so totaling 10 slots when she should only have 9. But she's just shy of 2 milestones for getting extra slots if I got out and trained her, so that's easily rectifiable with a day's training if I got motivated.

    4th tamer is another bard: a disco tamer but with spellweaving instead of provo. I'm tempted to change her barding for necro and SS and creating some idiotic template of a necro spellweaving tamer. Possibly tame, lore vet, spellweaving, necro, spirit speak and the rest in med. Then my thief can become a stealth disco/voke bard and die even more frequently than she does already :D

    5th tamer isn't a proper tamer who hunts with pets, just my fisher who has a pair of kitsune on her boat, because they're cute and giggle. She'll need to train to make room for her killer sheep, but could accomodate the kits and ride her beetle in the meantime. In fact I only *need* 1 kit for her, it's just cuter having Sugar and Spice out together :)

    6th tamer was started as an archer peacer pally tamer (don't ask) just to see how badly I could twink in the name of comedy, and I called her Twinkerbelle for that very reason. Haven't fully figured out what I'll do with her now that idea's out the window. Think I'm going to delete her and make a feline RP char to hunt solely with Ailsa's cat pack. Then we can turn over all the taverns on Europa and make off with their milk and meat stocks *wink* Pet wise she has a frenzy pack that will be released to make way for the cats.

    Now I bet you wish you hadn't asked :D

    New addition:

    My necromancer now has two pets, a pair of bake kitsune named Flotsam and Jetsam. I did get rid of two pack beetles to obtain my new babies, and soon I'll work taming up to the bare minimum for bonding. I haven't worked out the details yet, but I'm thinking...
    81 taming, 81 lore, 105 necromancy, 110 spirit speak, 110 magery, 110 EI, 110 meditation, with the extra 13 points in whatever I get power scrolls in first.

    This is good stuff, everyone! Keep the info coming. I know I plan to ask a few people about how they've trained up some of those unusual pets and what they do with them. (I have a pesky crow on Pacific that I want to train.)
