    Back into starting new tamer..Taming is at 50.4 very slowly raising with taming attempts, goats and cows etc..
    Cannot use the mastery Book..need to be taming 90..
    Is there a faster way to raise taming? Like taming in Fel, dungeons etc at this level? Or its just a slooooow grind like it was years ago when I started my first tamer? Ty for any info..

    You could get a mythic token and pick 90 taming. This is what I did.

    Taming is a rough skill to train. Paying for the 90 can save you some time, but you will still need to raise it from 90, which is even harder. Try to find a place with A LOT of animals, I remember there is some place in Ilshenar with a bunch of ridgebacks, but I think you have to have high taming to tame those.

    We found that if you take a +5 taming jewel, taming polar bears goes pretty steady on the gains. And they are easily dropped off at the Zoo if you can gate (magery should be easy to gain up to that point with mage wands, not sure if you add that to your template though..), so that is a plus. Drop the ring/brace when you reach 55 or 60 yourself, and keep at it. We trained 3 new tamers that way the past year (and even found a castle plot on Dagger Isle in the process, yay!) so we feel it is not too bad like that. The 3rd one just went past 90 past week, as we only go for a few gains per day. At around 65 we added a +10 jewel to go train great hearts in the healer's grove in Ilsh, which gained not too bad either. Still asks for patience and perseverance, but well, the end result is worth it eh?

    I doubt skill gains are faster or better in Fel. You could, assuming you can afford the cost, buy the scrolls that give you 15 min boosted skill gains. Not the pinks, I think they are blue?

    60-90 ice island all the way.

    60-75 walrus and polar bears.
    75-85 snow leopards
    85-90 white wolves

    So many animals on the island, so there's very little down time between tames. Try and find someone with the shareable training booster...

    After 90 you can use the skill masteries to raise it. Easy.

    Does it matter what pet you use? Been trying this with a tamer I have on an EJ activated acct but it’s very slow, like .1 or .2 an hour slow. And this toon is roughly 91 taming atm.

    around 50 you could also throw on a couple +15-20 jewels and tame bulls in the jhelom pens. that worked for me recently on a new tamer.

    That doesn't sound right, our tamer went from 90 to 98 in one day? Ours is a paid account, but we read nothing about EJ also being restricted in gains, that would seem counterproductive to luring people (back) in. As far as we know it doesn't matter what kind of pet you take, from horses to high end.
