I have been working on an effective way to tame Bane Dragons on my own (trying to get a decent one 4+). Started with a Mage/Tamer and now have moved to a Peace/Tamer. Since I had to take up Music and Peace, I had to give up Meditation and Eval Int. I currently only have taming skills (with Vet), music/peace and just plain magery. This means, I need a pet to subdue the Bane Dragon (without meditation my mana regen is horrible and without eval int the damage done is ineffective). My first candidate was a nightmare I had in the stables but it went horrible. The thing has so little health points that I have hard time healing it up with veterinary and when it gets poisoned I see the health bar cut down in half in no time. Of course, getting poisoned all the time, waste my healing effort since I merely cure the poison but do not improve health. Anyways, I found the nightmare not effective and more a pain than real help. Since the Bane takes up 3 slots I was wondering, what would be a better candidate than the nightmare (perhaps immune to poison ??) that takes 2 followers slots ? Any advice ?
