Hi all, Well, my journey to become a good tamer is coming along splendidly (sort of), thx mostly from the reading and advice I've gotten here. But, it seems the more I learn - the more questions I have... For instance: When starting to tame something I haven't tamed before, I always look at the Hunter's Guide here for information on min/avg/max Stats, Combat ratings, and Resists - so that I know a "good" prospect from a junky one. And I use the Pet Calc to get a basic idea of where one falls. Now, since Resists do NOT change EVER (as well as HP's), but Combat skills do - shouldn't my PRIMARY concern whenever loring a PRE-tame ALWAYS focus mostly on the RESISTS (since they can't be worked-up) ? Now, having said that - I do understand that a very "weak" critter isn't much good even with GREAT resists, since it dies too quickly. But aside from that, aren't the RESISTS the primary concern if HP's are so-so?
