    Hi Everyone,

    We are happy to release the first installment of our new video series called Taming Tips. These videos will each showcase something aimed at helping Tamers become more confident in their abilities. While these are aimed at New and Returning Tamers, experienced tamers may find them useful as well.

    We are providing these videos as an alternative resource for those that may learn better through visual learning or otherwise have trouble following along in a written guide.

    These videos will be posted to our website Videos | uo-cah.com and our YouTube channel UO Cah -- These pages will be updated as we add more content.

    We have 2 videos for this series posted already:

    Taming Tips - How To Lead Tame


    Taming Tips - Luring an Allosaurus


    We have several more videos in the works already, including a companion video to our Beginning Animal Taming Guide.

    If there is a specific concept you would like to see in video form, feel free to let us know and we will see if we can make a video about it for you.

    Sakkhra is the best place to learn how to choose a target and lead it around. Things do all kinds of damage there so if you can do it there you can do it anywhere.

    Nice work.

    Great video. I would just add. After you tame the first one. Mount it and tame another while you are there.

    If you want to tame up to 5 at a time. Clear an area to place them when tamed. Tell them to stay and invis them while you tame another. Bring the next tame to the area and do the same. When done. Call them all and all stay. Invis them again and you will have time to run out of the mines, recall to a safe spot and log off and on. Or Spam all follow and if they don't get stuck at a corner you can run them all out of the mines and gate when outside.

    Works for any 1 or 2 slot pet. You can invis a 2 slot Naj or Crimson/plat drake while you find another.

    Yea I contemplated showing that you could get up to 5 Beetles at once, but I decided to leave it out to keep the video more simple. If you need to get 5 beetles at once, you probably don't need to watch a video on how to tame one~

    I may do a video specifically on getting freshly tamed pets out of hostile no-recall/no-gate areas.

    New video added:

    Taming Tips - How To Farm Hiryus


    This video will showcase the method I personally use to efficiently farm Hiryus for rare colors (or just Fame/Gold if you want). It is done with a basic tamer character, not my main tamer.

    I would recommend a dragon slayer spellbook they are usually pretty easy to find and in some cases cheaper then the scrappers. Hiryu are classified as dragons so ur spells do a lot more damage with the slayer.

    Nice video. You are a lot better at killing things with spells than I am.

    I take a frost mite and let it follow me around or a Cu and kill the Hiryus. When I find one I want I put the pet away and come back to tame.

    Hiryus have really low cold resist:

    New video added.

    Taming Tips - How to Train Resisting Spells


    This one will show you how to easily train resisting spells on your pet.

    Before anyone mentions it, I intentionally did not include boats in the video on purpose. (For the same reason I did not include anything about the house in Old Haven on some shards.)

    Next video in the series has been added:

    Taming Tips - How To Begin Advanced Animal Training


    This video can be viewed as a standalone resource, or as a companion to the written guide here: Beginning Advanced Animal Training Leveling | uo-cah.com

    This video may be a little slow for more experienced tamers, but it is designed for those who may be completely inexperienced with the new taming system.

    There are parts which may be of interest to experienced tamers, however:

    4:13 - Leveling on an Unbound Energy Vortex
    7:41 - Leveling on a Dread Pirate
    9:15 - Leveling on an Allosaurus
    13:06 - Leveling on Navrey Night-Eyes
    14:13 - Leveling on Ratman Mini-Champ
