    I lored a tiger and wasn't impressed. Is the only reason to chase after the white ones to sell or bank sit with?

    Such a shame they can't be ridden.

    They probably still don't compare overall with a greater dragon, but I was able to tame two and do the Dragon Turtle spawn start to finish with them. I got looting rights, I got primers, and neither of them died. They'd be a lot more effective once fully trained and bonded as well. At any rate, the Devs talked about a pet revamp in the future so stay tuned.

    these pets were a fail. they would have been a very useful mid-range pet (between a nightmare and a dread) IF they could be ridden. unfortunately theyll only be used by a very small amount of enthusiasts, even those will most likely still use a bake kitsune.

    I did performance tests between a fully trained Tiger and a fully trained Bake Kitsune, and the Tiger out damaged the Bake Kitsune. I also did a performance test between 2 fully trained Tigers, and 2 fully trained Raptors, and the Tigers out damaged the Raptors (despite the Raptors having Pack Instincts).

    The tigers seem to have a special attack that drop the target's physical resist by 10 points for a few seconds.
    I guess a rune beetle/tiger combo might be pretty powerful. I will try it out once my tiger bounds with my tamer.

    I believe the Devs talked about pet revamp since at least 2011. Refusing to add viable/usable pets because of the mythical revamp is just an excuse IMO.

    It's been talked about and hinted at since at least then... however talk is all we have seen. I for one have been waiting long enough for this revamp... Though I almost fear that if this revamp is like so many other revamps of things I'm going to be more annoyed than ever.

    Given that apparently Eodon was done by a single person, it is not complete, and revamp is only being considered, I consider it to be somewhere just before the flying cars. And yes, however they do it if they do it, will piss some people off. Imagine all the tamers who spent years looking for their perfect GD, and all of a sudden it's not so uber anymore.

    intresting, still not convinced tho. i suppose its a start for pvm, i just saw this as a great opportunity for a pvp pet, and still a bit hesitant that itll catch on. i know many suits are way overcapped anyway, plus the barage of majic spells is usually the draw of the bake, not the actual base damage. Still say if these were rideable they might really catch on.

    but i havent tested it : ) thanks for some facts to base the comparison off of. much appreciated.

    So what are these white and black tigers selling for? Or are they not really that rare?

    I talked with Kyronix on TC, and he said the reason that there weren't more tameables in ToL, is because they're planning on doing the Pet Revamp, and they don't want to introduce a new tameable, just to have to revamp it a little down the road. I get the feeling that the Pet Revamp is on their priority list.

    If it's on their priority list then it should have been done by now they have only been talking about it since 2011... or even earlier... I for 1 am getting a bit tired of hearing that... I would like to see some action in that department... It's like talking about how they once talked of doing gardens... and how they didn't want to give us dirt tiles because they were considering letting us have our own fields where we might garden and grow things... I think that'll happen when pigs fly.

    Nice hit points, the highest I've seen in regular tigers was 450. Mind posting it's resists?

    You know, I get that we are an old crotchety bunch. I get that the people who are still here remain because they LOVE this game. So opinions run strong and often. But for frick's sake guys, go easy with the criticism for one. We have tameable tigers. The tigers have nice stats for their range. The tigers only take two slots each. The tigers have BEAUTIFUL animation (including the very awesome at rest stretch they do). The tigers have color variants. The tigers have nifty pelts. The tigers spawn easily, and are accessible without a Yamandon there to jack you up. The expansion which provides said tigers is FREE.

    Do they allow mounts? No, just like they don't one shot greater dragons or poop out Mesanna lanterns. But for what they are, they are great. Every pet doesn't have to be uber.

    @Kyronix or whoever else made these, NICE JOB! When I win the lottery and buy UO, I want this dev to create the animation for my custom troll-slaying Blood hound to sniff out naysayers across the land. Then bark at them loudly.

    ;)

    I'm not saying they aren't pretty because they are... has anyone tried clicking their pet Tiger many times.... I seem to recall Mesanna saying something sometime back about them rolling over for a tummy rub... but I could have been dreaming... but their death animation would suggest that this might be the case.. Just saying...

    I'm just tired of waiting for a Pet Revamp that's been on the books for so long I think the book has turned to dust and been buried under a heap of other things never to see the light of day again.

    I spent last night loring tigers to get some stat info.

    Min and Max from what I could tell:

    HP 350-450
    Resists:
    55-75
    20-40
    55-65
    30-40
    25-35

    So looks like your white tiger is a decent one. :)

    I just tried clicking my tigers to get them to roll on back for rubs. They didn't :(
