so the other day i had 2 tamers on and both had freshly bonded Turtles and i was going to dig up a Shadow Elemental to train them both on at the same time. i was struck by the thought that i should try out that new mastery for animal taming - whispering! so i got the turtles going on the shadow ele and both turtles were pretty much mirror images of each other for everything from stats to skills. the one tamer switched mastery to taming and put on the whispering and away we went. fast forward a couple hours later and i checked the pets..... really no difference. the one had gained a couple more in wrestling but not as much in tactics. checked again in another couple hours, same deal but opposite, tactics was now a point or 2 higher and wrestle lower. both turtles capped out at the same time. my findings are that it took the same time to cap the turtles running the mastery as not. level 1 mastery so that isnt much but i kinda thought it would have been more substantial. anyone else experiment with it yet?
