    So, as a tamer what I'm trying to remember is the mechanics of giving away a swampy.

    If I am grabbing one that is going to a warrior, once he's tamed, do I bond him to me and then transfer him? Do I transfer him to someone right away...what if they want a trained swampy?

    Sorry, been gone a long time and I don't remember and can't find anything to tell me.

    Appreciate the assist.

    Hey there...

    You don't have to bond the swampy or any animal first before handing it to someone. That would be a waste of time and the person that will own the animal needs to do the 1 week wait period for bonding after feeding. Once the animal is given away it is no longer bonded to anyone.

    As for whether the person wants a trained swampy... You'd have to ask the person who is receiving the animal, in which case you may wanna have it bond to you just in case it dies during training because of some unforeseen circumstances... Such as, you lose connection and it dies.

    What Necronom said. You can transfer it immediately. You can also bond it and then transfer it, but the player receiving it will need to bond it again. Personally, I bond them, train them, and then hand them over to my warrior characters. Why? I know it sounds goofy, but when I die, if you're in heavy spawn, having them trained gives them that extra little bit of durability that may keep you from having to go get them rezzed.
