    Hullo! Back again with the mechanical tamer (been a few years), and while I am sorting out my mechanical pets, I am grabbing some in theme pets to go with him. Has 120 Lore and 100 Vet, may as well use it.

    This bugly pictured below had stats about 40 40 40 40 post taming. I have been killing evil mages, evil mage lords, bone mages, water eles raising wrestling and his resist has zoomed up. From 40, too 100.2?

    Does this mean his skills can possibly go up too what they were pre tame? I notice on the hunters guide they can start with 120+ resist and 101+ wrestling. Anyone ever actually trained an iron bugly?

    Image was taken 20 minutes after last magic fight, so I assume its not a spell or anything thats done this.

    I don't think the iron beetle is a very common pet, most crafters have fire or giant beetles and most don't train them anyway, and the tamers.... well, old school ones still use the nightmares/WW/fire steed and so on but most only use the usual Cu and GD. I really never heard of any training an iron beetle.

    What I mean is that little is known about those and you may be one of the first to notice this. Maybe they can be trained past GM but in the wild they spawn with less and never fight enough for it to raise.

    Found out of Wenchkin you can train a Iron Buggly's stats back too original stats so can be trained past GM resist. ^^
