Taming grief

    I guess in all the years of playing I've finally run into that person. Was taming bulls tonight at Jhelom pens. Some gm+ tamer was following me around poisoning everything I was trying to tame. Didn't need to tame just following me everywhere trying to grief me. Then thanking me for putting the bull out of its misery. At this rate if he keeps following to all the bull spawns it will be a long way to finishing this character. lol

    When someone starts harassing you, just leave the area. Go do something else for a bit. You could have gone to the Jhelom pens in fel, or gone to delucia...or logged off to go eat. The idea really is to get away from them so that their source of amusement is gone, and when you return later they will be (hopefully) be gone.

    Just to add, I know that it's annoying, but after you've played for a few years there isn't that need to get everything done as fast as you can and then have that bout of eventual frustration when other people keep you from doing just that. If it had been me I would have probably said something like "thats bull****! see what I did there? it's BULL****...ahaha" and tried to make them laugh or just amused myself. Who knows, bad puns have a way of driving off others when nothing else works...

    Just say "fine, come stop me in Fel" and it's up to you - either recall to the spawn in Fel and you have the option of fighting the little cherub, or try Delucia. Let him sit poisoning bulls all day if he wants, I'm sure he'll make a lot of taming friends that way :D

    If they were following you and poisoning what you were trying to tame then ....

    You might ask them to stop poisoning what your taming and once tamed then they can poison it.

    When they refuse to stop, then page on them with some very specific wording.

    There is a person here that cast poison on a mob I am trying to tame. This person follows me around and only cast poison on the mob I am trying to tame. I have asked them to stop and they refuse to stop.

    At no point should you ever be rude or do anything other than try to tame the Bulls.

    That will get you a solution. :thumbsup: Unless of course your on TC1 then forget it.

    Yeah, leaving is probably the best option, but I believe that this is probably also pageable if you are inclined to do so...most griefing falls under 'physical harassment'.

    You can try paging, but on the support page it always suggests that you should move away from the area before calling a GM. I've always interpreted it to mean "leave and if they pursue you further, you've got cause to page". If they followed you to Delucia and then pursued you around from inside town to the mountains that's when I'd suggest paging.

    I was working my tamer when some boob using a rail marco just walks up to the bull im taming and just steals me tame , I asked a few questions nothing, so, I tamed a bull then set it to folow, was kinda funny for a few min when I saw the perp try to flame strike my bull over and over.

    Not releated but I though I would share, but for real the amount of folk that macroed bulls to over 100 would equall 70% of al the tamers on my shard :p most of witch did it unattended.


    I go there for a quick ggs but I dont work it their anymore, who am I kidding I dont work it at all anymore, im ok with my other chars.

    Thanks for the all the post.

    I have see quite a few things but I guess that one just got me.
    Bad day+ right when I start taming he shows up and waste my time+ my ignorance in trying to ignore him and tame anyways= post.
    Now that I switched out my gear I was trying to not use taming rings or bracers. Normally I wouldn't be so much in a rush.

    Don't worry, we all have days like that, and there's always someone around to be a pain when you least need it ;)

    Bulls spawn north of Trinsic in both Fel and Tram. I don't go there often anymore to train taming, end up there more often to get leather. Don't see scripters there very often, probably because the bulls spawn so far apart and there are a few spots where it appears they or the bull they are taming can get stuck on terrain. However, it is a great alternative if you get fed up with the antics in the Jhelom pen.

    Gaman require slightly less skill to tame than bulls (68.7 vs. 71.1) and you can find them in abundance around the Homare Jima gate in Tokuno, or to the North of Zento in front of the mountains.

    Dire wolves require 83. 1 taming and can be a kind of fun alternative if you need a break and something that will kind of keep you on your toes. A good spot for them is just to the west of the Meer village in Ilshenar---use the Sacrifice moongate. Come prepared with sufficient skill of some sort (magery, weapons, etc.) to kill the paragons that you won't be able to tame. (Blade spirits kill them just fine.)

    A couple of other options to give you a break from bulls, a bit of a challenge, and some practice with lead taming would be lava lizards (80.7 taming minimum); drakes (84.3); frenzied ostards (77.1); giant toads (77.1); hell hounds (85.5); imps (83.1); ridgebacks (83.1); and bake kitsune (80.7).

    Thank you. I was taming snow leopards on artic island but gains are close to nil there. I was doing the gaman for awhile but I've been switching back and forth to the bulls. maybe I should go back to the gaman there seems to be more around.
