Hi everybody,

I’ve updated the stable slot calculator to include Time of Legends and the animal taming mastery, “boarding.”

Previously, a 120 taming/lore/vet tamer earned 14 stable slots, plus 2 for the Stygian Abyss expansion. Time of Legends adds 2 more stable slots for everyone (so, 18 total for a 120 tamer), and when you activate the taming mastery, the boarding skill (passive) gives you an additional +1 slot for each tier of the mastery you’ve earned (i.e. +1 for each volume of the animal taming primer that you’ve eaten). That’s a max of +3 for a total of 21 stable slots for a 120 tamer with both expansions and all 3 tiers of the taming mastery completed and active.

Go get some dragon turtles and fill those new stable slots!

Hi everybody,

With the renewed interest in max possible stats and skills for the latest GD-like beasts, dragon turtles, I’ve put together a little calculator to help you figure out the max that your greater dragon or dragon turtle will train up to in its over-GM skills.

Wrestling, tactics, and resist lose 28% (greater dragons) or 55% (dragon turtles) of their wild skill values after taming, and can then be trained back up to 90% of their wild max. For wrestling, the wild max is 145, so the tamed max (after training) is 130.5. For tactics and resisting spells, the wild max is 140, so the tamed max (after training) is 126.

Magery can be above GM, but it does not lose the 28% or 55% after taming – so whatever the post-tame magery is at, that’s its max (wild max 140, tamed max 126). It won’t gain above what it started with post-tame.

To save you the hassle of doing the math, here’s a calculator!

Hi everybody,

By request, I’ve added the skree to the Pet Power Calculator. Note that I’ve used the Stratics Hunter’s Guide data, which only has 7 readings of skree stats, so your skree may very well fall outside of those ranges. If you do receive a message from the calculator to that effect, please let me know and I will update the skree data in the calc.

Thanks!

Hi everybody,

Early results appear to indicate that dragon turtles share the same stats/resists as greater dragons. (This would, I believe, be a lovely approach by the dev team – get those big flappy dragons into the stables so that we have a smaller, less flappy alternative for big events and champ spawns, etc).

I’ve added dragon turtles to the Pet Power Calculator, with the same information as greater dragons. THIS COULD CHANGE. So far, I’ve got less than 10 reports of dragon turtle hatchling stats, resists, and skills, but so far, they all fall within the GD ranges.

Please let me know if you find any dragon turtles outside the ranges. (The calculator should give you an error message if you input data outside the ranges).

Thanks!

Hi everybody,

I’ve added wild tigers to the Pet Power Calculator.

Note that the data is based on only 50 or so tigers; I need to collect more data to verify that the numbers are correct. They should be in the ballpark.

My first random tiger tame was a 3.1 🙂

Happy taming!
