So, i've been running around gathering info on Tigers with Animal Lore (i lored 50 Tigers) as well as in-combat observations, and here's the results. Only 1 out of the 50 Tigers was a special color, black. Stats Strength: 500-555 Dexterity: 85-125 Intelligence: 85-165 Health: 350-450 Stamina: 85-125 Mana: 85-165 Resists Physical: 55-75 Fire: 20-40 Cold: 55-65 Poison: 30-40 Energy: 25-35 Damage 100% Physical Base Damage: 18-24 Skills Wrestling: 89.6-95.1 Tactics: 100.2-102.5 Resist: 88.4-98.0 Anatomy: 0.0 The Tiger has access to Bleed Attack, as well as a special that reduces the opponents Physical Resist by 5 for a few seconds (seen as a brief sparkle graphic). Lesser Hiryus/Hiryus also possess this attack. The Tiger is not mountable, and does not have Pack Instincts. The Tiger is often angered by tame attempts, and takes 2 Control Slots when tamed. I then did a combat comparison between the Tiger to the current, best 2 Slot pet, the Bake Kitsune. Both were fully trained, and had good overall stats for their species. I had each attack a tame, fully trained Greater Dragon with 117.0 Wrestling, until it was redlined. It took the Tiger 1 minute and 45 seconds to redline the Greater. It took the Bake Kitsune 2 minutes, 47 seconds to redline the Greater. So it appears the Tiger has greater offensive power than the Bake Kitsune, and is tankier against pure Physical opponents (due to higher Health and Physical Resist), but is less tanky against opponents that use magic or do melee damage other than Physical.
