MMO[edit | edit source]

Taming is the action used to tame domestic animals. Once tamed, pigs and sheeps can be put into a Barn, cows and horses into a Small or Large Stable. The types of animals you can tame are determined by the level of your Animal lore skill, as shown the the following table.

Taming Requirements
Wild Animal Tracking Behaviour Skill Food Domesticated animal
Boar (wild) Aggressive Aggressive AL 30 Wheat and edible taproots Boar or Mangalica boar
Sow (wild) Peaceful Peaceful Pig or Mangalica pig
Mutton Peaceful Aggressive AL 30 Peas and cabbage Ram or Mountain ram
Sheep or Mountain sheep
Aurochs Bull (wild) Aggressive Aggressive AL 60 Mushrooms and potatoes Bull or Hairy bull
Aurochs Cow (wild) Peaceful Peaceful Cow or Hairy cow
Wild horse Peaceful Defensive AL 60 Carrots and apples Horse or Stallion
Moose Peaceful Defensive Carrots and apples Tamed moose

Tips:[edit | edit source]

  • Peaceful animals like pigs and cows ignore you as long as you don't attack them what makes them really easy to tame.
  • Peaceful animals like wild horses and mooses flee after a short time when you are too close. Feed them once or twice, let them run away and calm down, then follow them and feed them again.
  • Aggressive animals like muttons, boars and aurochs bulls attack you as soon as you come close. Hit them low and they will lay down, then feed them.
  • You have to use the right food to tame an animal, you only gain experience for failed attempts if you use the right food.
  • High quality food has a higher chance to tame an animal with each attempt. Use low quality food if you want to farm as much experience as possible.
  • Animals will age in a barn or stable, but not in a container like a trader cart, horse cart or warehouse. So unless you are using an animal for breeding or producing resources (dung, wool, milk, etc.) you probably should store.This is especially true for horses you are only using for riding, as placing them in a stable will cause them to age and eventually die of old age.

Taming Methods[edit | edit source]

  • If you approach slowly until you can just use the tame ("E") ability you can frequently tame an animal without it running. Try taking small steps, pressing "E" while targeting the animal.
  • Run after it, if you are fast enough, you will be able to catch up to it and fast-right-click
  • Run after it until it becomes tired, then it will stop to rest for a short period of time, then you can right-click it
  • Run after the animal and engage it in combat. After a certain amount of damage (depending on the animal), the animal will try to walk away slowly, allowing you to tame it much faster.

After having clicked the Tame action a window will appear, here you must select a food item in your inventory to tame the animal with. The following food items are usable:

A taming attempt usually takes a few tries. Each attempt removes one entity of the selected bait from the players inventory.

A successful taming attempt will add one (domestic version) of the animal as a "deed" in your inventory. You can place small animals into a Barn and big animals into a Small- or Large Stable. You can also store the animal deeds in a warehouse.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Not all animals are tamable. Currently the only ones which can be tamed are: cows, horses, pigs, and sheep.
  • You can use low quality food to raise your skill.
  • To get domestic chickens and rabbits one must use a Snare trap.
  • For some reason, domestic animals won't appear when using the "Track peaceful animal" ability or set off animal traps. Maybe this is intentional, as for patch 0.2.7.1 it's not implemented.
  • Animals will age in a barn or stable, but not in a warehouse. So unless you are using an animal for breeding or producing resources (dung, wool, milk, etc.) you probably should store their deed in a warehouse. This is especially true for horses you are only using for riding, as placing them in a stable will cause them to age and eventually die of old age.

  • Use high quality food to increase the chance of success in taming. Use low quality food if you are more interested in raising your animal lore skill, as each failed taming attempt will still raise your skill.
