Now that I know what to tame, where do I go?!

Britannia can be an overwhelming realm to tame in, and hence many tamers get stuck in a rut of taming in the same old  places. This can lead to burnout and general disenfranchisement with taming itself. Taming can be a truly relaxing skill, as  well as exciting depending upon where you choose to tame. And that is the beauty of taming…you can choose where you want to tame! A tamer who travels over the realm can feel much more enrichment and less burnout than the tamer who only  chased Delucia Bulls the entire time spent training taming.

Like other skills, tamers can choose where to tame. Since so many creatures can yield gains to Legendary skill, a tamer can truly tame anywhere! However, some regions are much more unfriendly to tamers than others, so they will have the  following difficulty ratings, which should be taken into consideration based on the skill set of your tamer.

Area Danger Ratings
0 No danger
1 Low danger (Mongbat,
Headless,
Orc,
Lizardman)
2 Low to moderate danger (higher spawn of Lizardman,
Ettin,
Troll,
Harpy,
etc.)
3 Moderate danger (Elementals, Troll,
Dire
Wolf
, Reaper)
4 High danger (high spawn of monsters with tamables)
5 Extremely high danger (characters with low magery/fighting
ability should not venture here, unprepared characters
will have a high fatality rate)
1. Windemere Wood/Sacrifice

Tamables: Bull,
Grizzly
Bear
, Great
Hart
, Cougar,
Panther,
Grey
Wolf
, Snake,
Eagle,
Hind,
Cow,
Mountain
Goat

Suitable for: 0-100 skill

Danger Rating: 2

Comments: This broad taming area has a nice
forest and farm animal spawn. It is located close
to Vesper and has a moderate monster spawn.

2. North Britain Woods

Tamables: Bull,
Grizzly
Bear
, Great
Hart
, Cougar,
Panther,
Grey
Wolf
, Snake,
Eagle,
Hind,
Cow,
Mountain
Goat

Suitable for: 0-100 skill

Danger Rating: 2

Comments: This is a very broad taming area,
with multiple Bulls, Harts, Grizzlies, and other higher
tamables for the advanced tamer. It also has low-level
animals for newer tamers. Its proximity to Britain
makes it a good place for a character with low magery
to tame.

3. Southwest Britain Woods

Tamables: Bull,
Grizzly
Bear
, Great
Hart
, Cougar,
Panther,
Grey
Wolf
, Snake,
Eagle,
Hind,
Cow,
Mountain
Goat

Suitable for: 0-100 skill

Danger Rating: 2

Comments: Another broad area that overlaps
the Crossroads/Hedge Maze taming zone, this is another
ideal area for newer tamers, as well as experienced
tamers. The nearby mountain pass to Britain is the
start of a guard zone in case of danger that young
tamers cannot handle. Also, being a populated areas
means that there will be more pretames as well as
security.

4. Crossroads

Tamables: Bull,
Grizzly
Bear
, Great
Hart
, Cougar,
Panther,
Grey
Wolf
, Snake,
Eagle,
Hind,
Cow,
Mountain
Goat

Suitable for: 0-100 skill

Danger Rating: 2

Comments: This area ranges from the Crossroads
to the Skara Brae farms. This area will be useful
for new tamers for its animal spawn as well as the
security it provides.

5. Hedge Maze

Tamables: Imp

Suitable for: 83.1-100 skill

Danger Rating: 3

Comments: The
Hedge Maze earns a danger Rating of 3. If the center
of the maze is devoid of other players, the spawn
can overwhelm an unprepared tamer. Two Daemons and
several Imps call the center of this maze home.

6. Deep Forest

Tamables: Bull,
Grizzly
Bear
, Great
Hart
, Cougar,
Panther,
Grey
Wolf
, Snake,
Eagle,
Hind,
Goat,
Giant
Spider

Suitable for: 10-100 skill

Danger Rating: 2/3

Comments: Similar to the other forest spawns,
though more of a hazard for new tamers because it
is far from some towns and much of the spawn is off
the traveled road. Trolls, Ettins, Giant Spiders,
Harpies, Headless, and Mongbats spawn rapidly in some
areas.

7. Jhelom Bull Pen

Tamables: Bull,
Goat,
Cow,
Chicken,
Alligator,
Snake,
Goat,
Sheep,
Mongbat

Suitable for: 20-60, 70-100 skill

Danger Rating: 1

Comments: This is a popular place for tamers
as well as young warriors working skills or tailors
gathering hides. If there are too many people here
it is advisable to move on, especially if you are
here solely for the Bulls. Tamers should also be aware
of the vicious Giant Serpents and occasional Silver
Serpents known to spawn near the pen.

8. Ice Island

Tamables: Walrus,
Polar
Bear
, Snow
Leopard
, White
Wolf

Suitable for: 30-100 skill

Danger Rating: 2

Comments: Frost trolls hit hard. Orcs spawn
on some parts of the island as well, though not in
the numbers they used to. Making a full circuit and
taming everything on the island can take a long time,
but yield gains.

9. Covetous Woods

Tamables: Bull,
Grizzly
Bear
, Great
Hart
, Cougar,
Panther,
Grey
Wolf
, Snake,
Eagle,
Hind,
Cow,
Mountain
Goat
, Giant
Spider

Suitable for: 10-100 skill

Danger Rating: 2

Comments: Another extremely broad area for
taming, a complete circuit of this area can take quite
a while. Multiple Bull> spawns and other high level
animals make this place good for advanced tamers as
well as low skilled tamers. This area is also quite
close to Vesper and Minoc, as well as a public moongate
for easy travel.

10. Trinsic Moongate

Tamables: Bull,
Grizzly
Bear
, Great
Hart
, Cougar,
Panther,
Grey
Wolf
, Snake,
Eagle,
Hind,
Cow,
Mountain
Goat
, Giant
Spider

Suitable for: 10-100 skill

Danger Rating: 2

Comments: One of the most convenient taming
areas! Located just south of Trinsic and right by
a moongate for quick travel between areas. This area
has a large farm animal and forest spawn, ideal for
tamers of all levels. Local monsters include Brigand
camps, Trolls, Ettins, Headless, Ogres, Giant Serpents,
Alligators.

11. Delucia Area

Tamables: Bull,
Great
Hart
, Cow,
Goat,
Sheep,
Hind,
Frenzied
Ostard
, Forest
Ostard
.

Suitable for: 10-50, 60-100 skill

Danger Rating: 0/1

Comments: Orc camps can spawn near Delucia,
which poses about the only danger to this area. Taming
in town is extremely safe, as it is a guard zone.
However, be prepared to encounter other tamers, warriors
gaining skills, and tailors at the cattle spawns!
Traveling further from town, travelers will encounter
Ratman and Lizardman camps, Gazers, Reapers, Ettins,
and Frenzied Ostards.

12. Hopper’s Bog

Tamables: Bullfrog,
Giant
Toad
, Alligator,
Snake.
Nearby: Rideable
Llama
, Frenzied
Ostard
, Horse,
Forest
Ostard
.

Suitable for: 30-60, 70-100 skill

Danger Rating: 4

Comments: This area gets its danger Rating
for its deadly inhabitant the Silver Serpent, as well
as its fast spawn of other friendly aggressive creatures.
It is a good distance overland from Papua and requires
following the twisting T2A terrain, so it is not recommended
for new tamers to venture here alone.

13. Damwin Thicket

Tamables: Horse,
Rideable
Llama
, Forest
Ostard
, Frenzied
Ostard
, Giant
Toad
, Panther>,
Great
Hart
, Grizzly
Bear
, Mongbat
(Strong)
.

Suitable for: 20-100 skill

Danger Rating: 3/4

Comments: Safe in some areas, but not so safe
in others! Swamp Tentacles, Giant Serpents, the occasional
Silver Serpent, and on rare occasion, Ophidians can
be found in the swampy area. This region is far from
Papua and Delucia and is not recommended for unescorted
young tamers to adventure around.

14. Delucia Passage

Tamables: Lava
Lizard
, Hellcat
(Large)

Suitable for: 80-100 skill

Danger Rating: 4/5

Comments: Home of the legendary Phoenix, as
well as Fire Elementals, Efreets, and Dread Spiders.
The terrain makes many parts of the dungeon difficult
to navigate if a monster is chasing you. Large Hellcats
move fast and have AI that helps them overcome every
barrier between themselves and prospective tamers.
Lava Lizards on the other hand are not so smart.

15. Lava Area

Tamables: Hellcat
(Large)
, Hell
Hound
, Imp,
Alligator,
Giant
Toad
, Snake,
Mongbat,
Mongbat
(Strong)
, Bullfrog.

Suitable for: 20-50, 70-100 skill

Danger Rating: 5

Comments: Just a hop, skip, and jump north
of Papua, this region is not for the faint of heart.
Wyverns, Efreets, Fire Elementals, Lava Serpents,
and many more monsters call this area home and will
be happy to introduce unsuspecting travelers to the
dirt. In many parts of the area with tamable creatures,
the spawn is intense and any lag can result in a quick
death.

16. Fire Dungeon

Tamables: Hellcat
(Small)
, Hellcat
(Large)

Hell
Hound
, Lava
Lizard

Suitable for: 70-100 skill

Danger Rating: 5

Comments: This dungeon is rugged. Its denizens
will happily chew you up and spit you out if given
the chance. Many Fire Elementals, Mage Lords, Liches,
Efreets, and other varieties of monsters call this
dungeon home, and the Hell Hounds are known to travel
in large packs.

17. Hythloth Dungeon Levels 1 and 2

Tamables: Imp,
Hell
Hound
,

Suitable for: 83-100 skill

Danger Rating: 5

Comments: Large, fast spawns of Imps and Hell

to contend with. Extremely dangerous areas for taming,
and no safe areas!

Sheep,
Cow,
Bull,
Great
Hart
, Hind.

Suitable for: 10-30, 60-100 skill

, Cougar,
Panther,>,

Hind,
Great
Hart
, Grizzly
Bear
, Goat

Suitable for: 10-40, 60-100 skill

Danger Rating: 0*

Comments: While technically a site with no
dangerous monster spawn, this island is the home to
many treasure map locations, which means guardian
monsters may be around! This means a tamer may encounter
anything from a Zombie to an Ancient Wyrm.

21. Northlands

Tamables: Dire
Wolf
, Great
Hart
, Hind,
Panther,
Grizzly
Bear
, Cougar,
Gorilla

Suitable for: 0-30, 45-100 skill

Danger Rating: 3

Comments: This area is a nice balance between
challenging spawn to tame as well as challenging spawn
for many characters to fight. Water and Air Elementals,
Gargoyles, Reapers, Trolls, Ettins, and other monsters
frequent this region.

22. Spiritwood (Ilshenar)

Tamables: Grizzly
Bear
, Horse,
Unicorn

Suitable for: 30-40, 60-100 skill

Danger Rating: 0**

Comments: Located in Ilshenar near the Spirituality
and Sacrifice moongates, the only character sure to
encounter trouble here are those with low karma. The
positive karma Pixies and Unicorns will actively attack
any evil characters or monsters to approach. Characters
with virtuous karma will be able to walk in the woods
in peace.

23. Ki-Rin Passage (Ilshenar)

Tamables: Ki-Rin,
Nightmare,
Drake

Suitable for: 95.1-100 skill

Danger Rating: 4

Comments: Located in Ilshenar and with the
handicap of no recall or gate travel, it can be quite
a wild ride to get in and out to the tamables here.
The Ki-Rin spawns in a quiet cave near a Poison Elemental.
The Nightmare spawns in a cave with an acid elemental.

24. Terathan Keep

Tamables: Nightmare,
Dragon,
Drake

Suitable for: 93.9-100 skill

Danger Rating: 5

Comments: There are a lot of Spiders and a
lot of Snakes…and I don’t mean the kind that
you can kill with an energy bolt or two! Their sheer
numbers makes taming in Trammel alone a daunting task.

25. Fire Isle / Daemon Temple

Tamables: Bull,
Great
Hart
, Hind,
Cow,
Goat,
Snake,
Giant
Spider
, Grizzly
Bear
, Grey
Wolf

Tamables: Dragon,
Drake

Suitable for: 93.9-120 skill

Danger Rating: 5

Comments: Destard has Greater Dragons. And Dragons. And Drakes.
And Wyverns. Lots and lots and lots and lots of them.
And each and everyone of them, if given the chance,
wants to personally introduce you to the dirt. It
is advisable to tame in any part of Destard you can
find which has no other spawn except for the beast
you wish to tame.

27. Wind

Tamables: Dragon,
Drake

Suitable for: 83.1-100 skill

Danger Rating: 5

Comments: In Wind Park, Imps are plentiful,
but Gargoyles, Air Elementals, Krakens and an Acid
Elemental are also present and can make taming practice
difficult. The Wind Dragon room is tight as well,
and infested with Daemons and 2 Drakes. Taming in
the narrow hallways of Wind can be difficult, but
it can be done.

28. Ice Dungeon

Tamables: Frost
Spider
, White
Wyrm

Suitable for: 77.1-100 skill

Danger Rating: 5

be maddening, and only seasoned tamers should venture
here to tame.

Tamables: White
Wolf
, Snow
