    UO Guide says bulls and ridgebacks will take me to 120. With the new taming changes, is this still true?

    They probably would, but why?Mastery training is so much faster.

    How do you train up taming with the mastery? I just got a mythic token to 90 and then bumped mine to 120 using jewels.

    I would be interested in getting real 120 if its possible to use an easier method.

    You can go from 90 to 105 really fast using mastery I, the gains slowed way down near 105. I purchased a mastery level II and the gains started again, way better than .1 everyday taming bulls for sure.

    I use Ki-rins or Unicorns at 100 or above. The Mastery works, but I find it's very slow also. Just use Combat Training on a pet and it does a training check.

    Training Taming now that we have Taming Mastery

    Or to repeat myself here:
    1. Get yourself a bound boura or something and link it with a crystal ball
    2. Stone everything sans taming, animal lore and set focus and meditation to raise. Make sure you have at least 90 taming
    3. Get a high MR suit with high MI and as much int as possible
    4. Make a macro that uses the combat training taming mastery and targets your bound pet
    5. Cast it at your hearts content, Ignoring the gump that shows up.
    6. Repeat pass 5 till you are out of mana, regen up, repeat pass 5.

    Enjoy your easy taming gains.
    Alacrities will help a lot when you are under 110 taming.

    Thanks for posting this. I need 14 more gains to finish off taming, and I need to sit down and figure out this mastery system and all the new taming changes. It’s been 13 years since I’ve worked this skill.

    My main tamer 'walking soulstone' was locked at GM taming from 2010 until about april 2017. After I had come back last year and had noticed all the changes, it took me roughly two days of 'bank sitting with pet' - casting a mastery spell as described above - to get taming as far up, that I could finish with what I had collected in SoT's.

    Works super nice - especially if you could stone away two or three skills, that are not really needed for such a 'bank sitting' session.

    Do I need all three animal taming mastery primers for the combat training? I only ate the first one.

    I have the book of masteries, I've eaten the taming primer vol 1, but when I try to use Combat Training, it tells me I'm not on the right path to use that mastery. What am I missing? I'm at 118.8 now.

    Real skill or with jewelry? Need 90 real skill for the mastery to work. If it’s 118.8 real, I’m not sure what’s going on....

    Do you have another mastery active right now? Magery or something else? You can single click on the mastery book, and click "switch mastery", to see what one is active. If you have more than one, that is.

    That’s probably it. It’s all real skill, no jewelry. Thanks, I’ll check this :)

    One more question: Does the taming difficulty of the pet you are casting Combat Training on matter in gaining gains? I'm using a dragon. Would another pet be better?

    I do not believe the pet matters, I used a deer that spawned outside my house once, gained the same as any of my other pets.

    Use a crystal ball of knowledge, by the way. The above is correct. Skill masteries have a skillcheck of their own. The first for any mastery is that you need to have 90 or more real skill. And then most masteries will take you to 120.
