    Well i just hit a hard reality i think... i was planning on taking taming to 120, but i just hit 100 and it took 4 hrs to get .1 gains.... before 100 i was averageing 1.4 gains a day. any tips? im switch between taming ridgebacks to taming bulls an hour on one then the other, but .1 gains after 4 hrs is obsurd, i might as well just wait 6.6 and get my ggs. what am i doing wrong?

    When my tamers hit 100 real taming, I give up and just go get their GGS gain every other day. (Usually tame 5-20 animals, depending on my mood, in hopes that on the rare day they'll actually get TWO gains instead of just one.) Below 100, if I'm feeling energetic, they get to go out every day to try for a gain. Once they hit about 117 or 118, the every other day routine usually turns into getting a gain about once every three days.

    Maybe you need to switch to taming unicorns or ki-rins, drakes, and dragons?

    And if you've been using a character with next to no skills on it other than taming, start working up some other skills and use the character to actually go out and kill stuff. Otherwise, you just might reach the point where you dread using that character and will never finish it.
  3. After 115, you can spend all day taming, and all you get is your GGS gain of .1.

    I have not tried alacrity scrolls, but as I recall (and this has been a long time ago) 99-100 took forever...or so I thought...because 115-120 is the only true definition of eternity.

    If you drop the Lore and the Magery you can get a GGS every 4-5 hrs at 100 -109.9 Taming. I did that a few months ago.

    because of rot you are pretty much guarenteed your gain ever 12 minutes

    can get 120 taming in 3 weeks easy without sitting at your computer for hours at a time..

    except you still ahve to grind to 70 to get into ROT

    disclaimer: ROT is not GGS, but, once your timer is up, there is a much much higher chance to gain, i gain right not from failing ongrizly bears, also gained on a horse
