    Is it against the rules to release an animal out side of a city or a guard zone?
    IE WW let go in the woods outside the zoo in glow, frost spyders on hyloth, gifts for my fellow guild mates on ther boats ect ect...

    I want to just Practice tameing and leave some of my tames wild in the woods and a few other places to liven things up...imo i dont see a problem with this...Any thoughts would be great...
    thanks

    I'm pretty sure what you are describing is legal. You're just not supposed to grief people by releasing or letting pets unbond in guard zones.

    I remember finding a boat key at the Tram Brit bank and thought I had a free boat. I recalled off of the key and recalled into a fel boat where a wild WW was on the boat and killed me instantly. Where someone was hidden waiting to loot my body lol
    That was before you knew what shard the boat was on and before insurance. He did that a few times and made a killing.

    That was legal because it was in Fel. It's a bit like the asshat on Legends who lately has been putting 'vendor' runes to Fel all over New Haven to lure newbs.

    If you're in Fel that's not a problem.

    There are rules about releasing aggressive critters in Tram, however. And there is always someone out there who would page on something as daft as a frost spider on their doorstep.

    I'd double check the rules before you release any aggressive beasties.

    How about releasing a greater dragon in Casca room or the provisioner room in Doom? After all, it is in the dungeons and ppl there should be fully aware of the risk of being there.

    That will get you tossed in jail if a GM ever responds to the pages they'll get. If it's done for the purpose of griefing/killing other players it's against the rules.

    They've addressed this before. (every few months it seems)

    They even changed systems specifically to deal with it.

    It is not illegal to release any pet anywhere.
    But you retain responsability for the actions of the pet for 3 minutes after it is released. Meaning that if you dump an agressive pet and it kills someone, you flag and can take a murder count even if you are in Luna.

    They were working through the list making agressives lose their agressive nature once tamed, so that even after release they would not attack a blue target again.

    They didn't finish the list before they got sidetracked onto something else, so some types remain passive when released, others go back to their agressive wild state.


    Besides, what could possibly be more fun than releasing a greater dragon renamed "a bull" in front of someone running an unattended taming skill script? ;)
    It's worth the count.

    not in Fel of course. it is perfectly legal to go to Felucca and release a pet wherever you like. good way to stay out of trouble if you really want to release a high level pet without some tattle tale paging a GM on you.

    Wasn't the consensus that it was illegal to release tames for training purposes in houses, and especially if aggressive animals confined to pens/boats could not reach you?

    Well, even in carebear land, if you tame it, then release it, as long as no one was there to see you, then there is no one to page on. Or, you can tame it, NOT feed it, and jst let it go wild on its own....:danceb:

    Hmm, never heard of that. But that is nice to know if it is true.

    Just a few weeks ago I had someone leave me a wild greater dragon outside my house. I didn't page because I had a feeling it wouldn't have done any good, and I had no solid proof he was doing it on purpose. I was in my house making scrolls, and I saw him run into destard, then back out a few seconds with the dragon in tow. He released it, and recalled away. I had to call a guildmate to come rescue me because none of my char's were logged out suited up for a fight. Honestly, I have no problem with releasing pets in the wild, no matter what kind it is. But it's just rude IMO to leave one near someone's house where they could log in and unknowingly become lunch. At least just wandering along an empty road and running into a WW gives you a little bit of warning.
     
  15. of course it isnt illegal!
    the tamer world is built on second tames, 3rd, 4th, etc
    so some lame loser doing that is almost impossible to police

    lure it away
    its very easy cuz you can dbl-click the thing in war mode/mood and very simply lure it all the way to his house
    haha
    ...if you know where it is
    i mean hey, karma is a bi%tch

    stay just out of its range and you can take the devil himself to the ends of sosaria

    simple solution to a simple-minded jerk's attempt to hate.

    :loser:

    *Shrug*

    The Zoo wont (unless it has changed recently) Take Greater Dragons and some other higher end aggressive pets.

    I just take the gate to Fel Moonglow and let em go .....

    The Last one tried to byte me before I could invis. What a very short fuse he had ... maybe 2 seconds or less.
