Taming question, Dire wolves...tameable?

Discussion in 'UO Tamer' started by Justin Dreisden, Nov 18, 2009.

  1. Was curious if these creatures are still tameable?

    Yes. They require a minimum 83.1 taming, I believe.

    Dire's are certainly tameable, and it's very handy to tame and release them if you're taming around their spawns eg in twisted werld and the ridgeback spawn in Ilshy :) Once released *usually* they won't bother you again, and at the ridgeback spawn they're useful for killing ridgebacks on.

    can't necros tame dire wolves with 0 taming ?
     
  7. Necromancers summon them as familiars

    Yes, if necro's summon a dire wolf, they can tame some. Not sure why you'd go for dire wolves when you can get two kitsune the same way, though.
     
  9. This didn't work for me a few days ago with Bakes, maybe just a Siege thing as I found nothing in the patch notes about this ability of necros with a canine summon being removed.

    I heard recently that bakes are no longer tame-able by necros. They can apparently still control them with the wolf out, just not tame.

    So recent change? Now I need to go check my foxes on the necro. Dang. Been tamable for years and no real complaining. Should have been left the way they were.

    If you tame and release an aggressive creature it will remain docile as long as you don't refresh your screen. That is: Dismount and mount your ride, for instance. That will 'remind' the wolves that you are not really as much of a friend as you claimed to be...
    Casting the gate spell would also refresh the screen - but I'm not sure that is the case anymore.

    As for taming Bakes with a necromancer and dark wolf: I recieved the message, when I tried today: 'You have no chance of taming this creature'. In other words, the message anyone would get who tries to tame something which is beyond their skill.

    Yeah, I tried taming one with the necro yesterday and got same message. My bonded foxes listen just fine with the wolf out, though. I don't actually use them much on her.
