Okay I have been considering picking up Spellweaving on my Tamer, she has a bit of an odd template atm but I really like how she plays even though she is far from Min/Maxed. I have completed the SW quest for my basic Spellbook and I have also completed the Summon Fey quest; though I have yet to complete the Summon Fiend quest as it is quite a pain to get to. Here is her current template: 110 Animal Taming (+10 Ring) 120 Animal Lore 115ish/120 Vet (Still training) 100 Magery 100 Meditation 100 Hiding 80 Chivalry Basically I am trying to decide what to drop if I did choose to train SW. I mostly want SW for the HoT, the Auto-Rez, and the Monster Ignore ability so I can attempt to tame higher level beasts. I currently use an almost maxed skill Greater Hiryu (still working on Magic Resist), as I play Solo I foresee being able to obtain a high level focus almost impossible. I would like to get a Greater Dragon but with only 110 Taming that is going to be extremely difficult. I don't have the gold to go pick up a 120 Taming Scroll, I wish lol. The way I currently play her is I use Hiding to drop aggro, it is quite useful for getting to where I want to be without having to deal with mobs that I don't really care to fight. Just mount my Hiryu run through and hide when I get where I want to be, her gear is not very good and I rely on Hiding a lot. I really like that I can heal very well and travel effectively using Chivalry w/out the need of having to worry about reagents. I rarely if ever use Magery on her, it's been weeks since I even bothered to carry reagents on her, when I do use it is for the occasional Invis when Hiding is on CD, to Mark runes to new hunting locations or back when I actually attempted to tame creatures to cast Gate Travel in order to get my fresh tames to a stable. I wear Arcane clothing for those times when I just have to get a Mage spell off. Though if I dropped Hiding or Chiv I would end up using Magery a lot more. I currently wear a set of mediocre resist Luck armor. So, I would say the smartest thing to do would be to upgrade her gear to be 100% LRC with max FC/FCR for Magery, drop Hiding for SW, start actually carrying reagents and simply use Invis and the Monster Ignore ability in place of Hiding. If I ever do stop using a mountable pet Hiding would become less convenient anyway. So let's assume I can not get a Focus, and that I am only willing to invest 100 points in SW, would it even be useful? For instance would the Monster Ignore last long enough to get a Taming attempt off and Invis on a fail before it ended? What would my chance of actually succeeding at Taming say a Greater Dragon be with only 110 Taming and 120 Lore (if I remember correctly it is ridiculously difficult at that level)?
