Hey!
I want to catch some animals. I do not have skills, just bought ring for better % and Dominax Original Garter (L).
What a mob on the calypso will be ok to start with taming, when bristlehog is bugged? I think MA will not fix that too fast ;/
Any tips about taming will be useful and helpful!

Have a nice day!

i suppose you whip it until the 2 bars enter in the correct terrytory then activate taming attempt.
i used cornundacauda they allow the time to do the try
summoning a pet increase also animal tamer profession as it rewards skill point (too few compared to the nutrip bar it eats :))
being pet oversupplied these days also the Asclarias fell to 150..200 ped at level 19

Check out the [Corinthian Kanin Pet] lvl.2 on Apophis Island. Not sure how well the Dominax Garter (L) is for them but the Dominax Moccasin (L) works perfect on them.

WP for the TP [Calypso, 61502, 68900, 106, Waypoint]
WP for the Bunnys ~ [Calypso, 60342, 69746, 106, Waypoint]

If you go more north from that WP you will find higher lvl. tamable creatures.

And yes, taming Bristlehog seems to be bugged.

You might consider heading to Monria and taming the leprechauns there. There is a mission for taming xx of them to get a plushie then a daily token taming mission. Might as well get something other than just the skills for your time.

Screw Monria. Head to Toulan if you are low level. TabTab now have a daily mission that give you daily skill gains. If I still had my viper whip and the goal to become a super high level tamer I'd be heading out there. Sadly sold it off not long ago (at a +600 ped gain vs initial price I paid. Probably should have gone for more but I'm not greedy ;) )

I think Cyrene's Arret is the best choice to start this profession. Mob is level 5 with 20 HP, which will quickly raise you to Boiga adjusted.

Maybe someone can confirm if the arret is working right again now? I believe there is a new area or something, maybe it is no longer in the wild but fenced in? It was a good choice for me years ago in the wild, with stats as deemer says.

arret's on it's own little island near the depot. Easy to get to, but again - there is no daily mission for them like there are for tabtab so why chase arret when skill gains on tabtab will be higher, and when you are done with the tabtab you can go harvest the gigantic forest of trees for more skill gains that toulan put in at the beginning of the year...

Also, if you visit cyrene the puny tameables are now all together at a tp. Back in ancient days they were huddled in with the rest of the mob.

The little tameables on Ark are ok too if you just want something to tame... Demand for little pets isn't super high so you'll probably juice whatever you tame unless you are very patient and want to skill them up yourself.
