    I have a partially finished tamer that I made and I am not sure if I should continue or switch to something else. All skills listed are real though I have things to modify them.

    Taming - 93.2
    Lore - 108.6
    Vet - 100
    Chiv - 74.1
    Archery - 91.4
    Tactics - 89.8

    The Archery and stuff can be stoned off and I have gm magery on a stone. I am just not sure what to do with this guy. I already have a bard tamer and a t-hunter tamer. Any suggestions? I don't see a template thread anymore but I am sure that would be mostly out of date now anyways with all of the changes.

    Variations of this are popular on LS. You need a suit with enough mana regen to keep consume going. Can increase/decrease meditation eval as needed.

    That looks pretty good to me Pawain. I just might try it on a tamer (been toying with making another tamer). Which skills are real? And which are boosted with items, and by how much?

    I see 51 points in that template that would be from equipment. But, that could be as simple as
    Kakakotl's ring (+20 in a casting skill, +10 med (+10 Resist not displayed))
    +10 Med from Spell Woven Britches.
    +11 in casting skills from a spellbook (or if you went 115 real in Taming and Lore, you could get the 5 points to get to 120 in both from the library talisman)

    There's hundreds of possible combinations, and most tamers I know still manage 80-100 points from equipment while still getting 1200+ luck (and always improving from new equipment)

    My tamer template varies greatly on what I'm doing.
    The latest I'm still tweaking and needs lots of skill increase from jewels is strictly for taming critters.

    120 taming (real)
    120 lore (real)
    120 music (real)
    120 disco (real)
    90 mysticism (120 with jewels)
    80 focus (120 with jewels and talisman)
    70 magery (110 with jewels and spellbook)

    The ability to disco and kill a paragon Cu with an RC to get a new one to spawn is nice.

    I know of tamers who use similar templates to this. Lots of templates are effective now, it's all about playstyle and what you enjoy

    Only the weaving is real 120. Mage Med Taming Lore and Vet are +13.

    This was basically my first tamer. It's a fun-as-hell template.

    Had a tanky Cu spec'ed for single target killing while I wailed on things with AoE Lightning Arrow. Played a human, wore pads when needing to ride, and used Wraith Form for mana steal and a 55%LMC suit.

    But now, I'm kinda interested in playing a Disco-Archer. lol

    Thank you Pawain!
    I think that might be my next tamer. My other tamers tend to be less flexible and that template looks to have plenty of room to “play” a little. I just need to pull the trigger and go for it, lol

    Its even easier if you start at 90 with the token and have an Imbuer. Make sure you do the spellweaving quest before you use the token. I hate skilling. I started the vet at 30ish. Used the combat training trick to get Taming to 120. Cast on the slugs over and over to get weaving to 120. Its an easy template to use.

    Well I decided to take a Necro Mage that I have not used in years and I stoned off the necro and ss and am turning him into a weaver tamer. I forgot how SLOW it is!

    Weaver tamer is a good template. My main tamer uses that template.

    Has any1 squeezed Spellweaving into bard-tamer somehow?
    magery 100, taming, lore, vet, music, disco, and spellweaving 80 ish to bring up to 120 with jewels?
    Are there items to bring spellweaving up rings, equipment etc? Disco is sooo nice to have and peace songs are also useful when needed.
    Thanks..
