Taming Guide

Discussion in 'UO Tamer' started by imported_Hinotori, Dec 9, 2007.

  1. With me being asked by several people in the last few weeks what to tame at what level, I started writing up my own taming guide to help them out. I figured I'd post it here as well to be of help to any who need it.



    Here is the taming guide I always use for when I'm training up new tamers. It is just a guide. I've notices some of the tamers I've done could stay taming lower creatures for longer and still get great gains. Others had to start taming higher creatures to get the gains. If you can't get the gains or are in a bad spot (55-65), put on some jewelry to move you up into a different taming bracket.

    The best gains are gotten from creatures that have a minimum taming requirement 20 points below your taming.

    If you can't tame the creatures quick enough, tame something else a little easier. The idea is to tame as many creatures as fast as you can.

    If anyone has any suggestions please feel free to add them. Taming guides are always in need of addendums and updates. For more help on what to tame I found that The Taming Archive is a wonderful web site. Their What do I tame? calculator is wonderful for pinpointing what you should use and is still useful even though it is out of date. You can find the calculator here --> http://www.tamingarchive.com/main/whattotame.php

    this should be updated, kirins at 95 skill level, especially since they are non aggressive.

    I like the list, but what do we tame between 50 and 60? (seems to be a gap there).
     
  6. 50-60

    Dagger/Ice Island - Polar Bears and / or Walrus.
     
  7. DOH! I DID forget 50-60. And it's the hardest to gain in I feel. Last tamer I tossed on jewels and did a higher catagory.

    Sorry, I'd just got back from a cross country move and hadn't been able to even read here for well over a month.

    I fixed the first post. Yes, polar bears and walrus are the best things for that level.

    Ki-rin may be non-agressive but at 95.1 to attempt to tame, you fail way to much to get good fast gains off them. Put on jewelry to take you higher and you can very effectivly use them. I got pretty fast gains from 115 to 120 from Unicorns which are the same tame requirement. Was getting a full point of gains a night when I did that char. I'm only just now taking another tamer up to 120 but she's on the slow track while I finish my new begger since I accidently deleted my other one.

    With the new changes to pets upon tame, the savage village isn't the awesome place it used to be. Pet's turn green (if guilded) just as soon as you tame them, setting you as the controller. If the pet actually hits a savage, your paint will blow up. And they stay on the control flag for a few after you release them.

    After gong to Dagger Island for the Walrus' , I stayed and ended on white wolves at 115. I heard that you can use them to take you to 120. Reason enough to get a scroll since I live there.

    I did white wolves once to get to GM. That was back in 98. It was so stupidly slow I've never touched a wolf again. I've used that method above for 6 other tamers successfully, though.

    There is also http://www.tamingarchive.com. It's old and not updated with current tamables, but it does still work for taming gains. Gives you exactly what you need to be taming. Look at the "What Do I Tame Calculator"

    Is this right?

    I saw another guide that says Polar Bears from 60 to 70.

    And its working for me. Few hours and I am 65...


    Whats better: polar bears/walrus or the animals in THIS guide?


    Thanks.

    The thing about the taming archive calculator is it was made back when you could get gains off failures. So blowing 10 attempts trying to tame something was no problem as that was 10 chances to get a skill gain. It doesn't work that way anymore, so that info is probably slightly off.
