Here are some suggestions on starting different Tamer types and which skills
The Mage Tamer
The advantage of having a mage tamer is the benefit of having dual heal on any pet. This can be especially useful when fighting peerless or other large monsters. While applying a bandaid you can still cast greater heal on your pet.
The Spellweaver Tamer
Casting gift of renewal on the pet helps with additional healing, though gift of life has minimal useability since the pet is restored in the combat area with no health.
The Warrior Tamer
This template is a good choice for anyone who wants to be ‘in on the action’ rather than acting as support for the pet, chivalry also enables the casting of ‘remove curse’ on the pet, especially useful against creatures that use mortal strike.
The Bard Tamer
This template comes in several ‘flavors’. The peace tamer who will peace the pet’s opponent to minimise damage to the pet, also very useful when acquiring pets for your stable or if you choose to tame for sale to other characters. In addition to peace most bards will have one other music skill. Provocation is useful for ‘crowd control’ and allows the tamer to function in areas that may have too heavy a spawn for other templates. Discord reduces the opponent’s skills, thereby also reducing it’s barding difficulty making it easier to successfullly peace. Battles with foes that are discorded and peaced tend to go very swiftly.
The Treasure Hunter Tamer
This template can be a little cramped, though skill jewellery helps with that aspect. Level 6 maps can be solo’d with due care and good tactics at the initial spawn stage.
