Lol. I really feel like that when I'm taming pets. In particular I remember an attempt on Humar at lvl 23 that caused me a lot of pain. He hits damn hard :(

Don't really understand the logic behind the taming process. But in a game with gnome warriors, it's best not to question I think.

/moo

No more ghostwolf cuddles for Turiel :roll: :tongue2: (can't remember if already did, hehe)

E.g. in nethack you can tame by throwing food :P

btw. nerf rogues so all stuns in PvP break on damage! ;)

I loved taming in Ultima Online. You could tame basically anything up to dragons :shock: Think only humanoids, undeads and demons were immune.

And the funniest thing, your character would say phrases designed to soothe the animal such as:

"Don't be afraid, a_sheep"
"Do you want to be my friend?"
"I've always wanted a_sheep as my pet"
"Good boy"

And so on and so forth.

Hehe good ol' Ultima Online days...




OOC: I find it funny that the most active pvp/PK location in my shard in UO was a fork in the road west of Britain, called, wait for it, THE CROSSROADS.

Some things never change.

Even funnier when people were training taming they instantly abandoned the pet ;) (after all those soothing words, hehe)

I think that was before Malas/Trammel times :( After Malas on my shard (Europa) it more or less moved to Yew moongate.

Yeah some fond memories in UO...
(PvP more "skill" based than just equipment which Malas patch ruined.. well actually earlier but thats when it really went downhill)

bah.. badly derailed topic (again)

I was on Europa too! Remember the "uber" PKs like Kishore, Sheepdog etc?

I was mostly around the italian community so you might not remember me, my name was BraveFencer Matt (I think).

Fun time before the infamous patch (btw I think it was Trammel/Felucca)

ghost wolves don't bite that hard so not that useful pet ;)
