I know it doesn't give you any skill gains if you release one of your own pets & re-tame it (nor do you have any difficulty re-taming), but does that apply to other people's pets? I ran into a Rather Happy Greater Dragon on the top of the West Britain Bank, and I ran it through the Pet Power Calc on UOCraft. It gave it a 4.1 rating. I don't know when it's going to go wild, but it'd be a shame if such a good pet was killed by the guards...and on that note, exactly how risky is it to tame someone else's wild pet? edit: Nevermind, the owner recalled out. Oh well. While I'm still curious about my second question: if a mod can delete this thread, that'd be great.
