Tamer, template and guide?

Discussion in 'UO Players Corner' started by Radix, May 23, 2008.

    i am thinking about making a tamer character, do u think that these skills are a good choice?

    Animal Taming : 120
    Music :100
    Animal Lore : 100
    Veterinary :100
    Archery / Magery / Provocation/ other: 115 (what better or funnier?)

    Chivalry (heal and traveling) : 80 (or less? 65 is high enough to res?)

    what do u think? please tell me.

    And second, i have read a lot of guides about taming, but most of all are very old, and the list of animals and monsters too, i have read recently that north of sacrifice shrine in ilshenar is a good place to begin,

    better of all is to get the highest possible values in others in haven? or better no to train anything and go to tame with a low total skill points?

    i am going mad :wall::drool:

    You might give some thought to magery at least enough to gate those newly tamed pets to the stable.

    I like the Tamer/Bard template the best but you need SoulStones:
    Taming 120
    Lore 120
    Vet 110 (120 with Enhanced Bandages)
    Discord 120
    Peace 120
    Music 120
    Chiv 40-50 (for healing/curing me!)

    That's with skill buffing items, of course.

    Sometimes the Vet is replaced with Magery when I need to gate a fresh tame out. Sometimes Peace is replaced with Resist.

    When Taming a critter that can really hurt me, I start with a Discord (reduces their ability to hurt me by 28%) and follow with a Peace. Some orthodox Tamers scorn this method but it is very effective.

    When fighting PVM, Discord makes it possible to kill critters faster for farming or to take on much tougher stuff for the challenge. Peace can help in crowd control. I often hunt where my pet can handle one at a time but not two.

    It is a very powerful template but also very hard to train.

    This template really looks very very hard to train :eek::eek:

    i see ^^

    but... is it more important for you vet and lore than taming? The % of taming a strong beast will be very low, is'n it?

    I think the reason why the Taming is so low on Moburto's templates is that a 120 Taming PS is a LOT more expensive than a 120 Lore or 120 Vet, not that they WANT to keep it that low.
