What are good creatures to tame against for weak critters?

    Trying to raise skills on a VERY low tier pet (under 100 hp). What can I train against feasibly to get it to gm tactics?

    Oki, for tactics alone I'd use the basic training guide here http://vboards.stratics.com/1894971-post11.html and simply pick the weakest creatures in the same skill group as your pet.

    This is the critter list I use on little pets.

    10-30 I'd go for ridgebacks and headless or better still deathwatch beetle hatchlings are passive and also around the same skill level.

    From 40-50 you can hop to deathwatch beetles or try zombies

    50-60 skeletons or corpsers

    60-65 ratmen or trolls

    65-70 Lizardmen and ogres

    70-85 I usually start on the gaman around this point and stuck with them till 85

    85-95 Harpies. I use the Ilshenar nest and pull the harpies out one by one so it doesn't get crazy

    95-100 if you're training the pet on a tamer, then there are obvious options of sparring a tame pet vs the new one. If not, you can keep on with the harpies or use either yourself or a summon to tank while your pet trains on something else. I usually use a unicorn tank with a little pet and take them to kill rotting corpses at that point, but it just depends what you have at your disposal.

    Of course it's even easier if you have a tamer's stable of pets to team up with your weaker one as the tank, or another tamer who can tank for you. But tank pets aren't essential at all, I pretty much took my pack out all together and trained them at the same time. It just takes care and good heal support :)

    I typically tame a second of the same sort and spar them against each other.

    If it's a very weak pet (chicken, for example), then I train resist on the pet first to get hit points up or start it against a skree or bear with the skree/bear set to stop/stay.

    Freshly tamed skree are good for training lower skilled pets since they have no wrestling to speak of to start out and a relatively high amount of hit points, making training other pets to 30-40 wrestling very easy. Move to a bear after that.
