    I know they can be owned and ridden by people with 90 bushido, but can they be commanded without taming and lore?

    I searched and cannot find this out

    Any help would be great

    Thank you!

    I've read it takes 100 bush to bond one. My Sampire isn't high enough in bush to try yet so I can't confirm

    They sound good for a sammy warrior, but think how can you heal it.
    No vet/animal lore. probley no magery.
    Ok it a handy once off get out of jail card.
    But even ressed it will slowly lose its skills and as most are not sold as trained birds.
    As of the above (no healing for animals/birds) makes it harder to keep alive.

    Also you have changed you char from a sammy warrior to a sammy/bird minder. nothing wrong if your used to playing that style.

    But also consider You go from a pure melee to a pet minder, it's way eaiser for a tamer with magery skills to look after #1.

    #1 is you, as a tamer if you die, then most of the time your pet dies. so it's eaiser to recall (if possiable) to save both hides.

    #1 on a fancy bird, your in trouble when you dis-mount, cant heal it and it will distract you from your true skills.

    That's true, it's probably easier when you have a Tamer friend who can train your pet back to full skill points.

    And resurrect it when needed :)

    For those who don't know, you can add another char in "friend list" of your pet if this char has a high enough taming/lore level to properly control your pet.

    This allows the other char to issue commands to your pet, it can't ride it but can control it in any other way.(all follow, all kill ....)

    It used to be that you just needed 90 bushido to be able to ride it, but they changed it a while back (almost 2 years) so that you needed 100 bushido to bond and maybe to ride it as well. Before the change people would have 0 bushido and have a bonded lesser on a pet ball and they would pet ball it in to help attack while they rode something else.

    Lesser Hiryu would make sense as a damage add while you tank, riding your Swampy. Then no pet mending or ressing needed. Obviously not for target switching or AOEing type mobs

    This is what i was interested in doing, because you cant put the barding on the bird and therefore lose that 20% damage reduction if you're not riding a swampy. So the bird would be extra damage.

    Anyone think of a specific situation where this would be ideal?

    Thank you!
