Welcome To my Taming guide.
As many of you are quite aware this is a brand new skill released with Warscape that offers a lot of end game content and brings some new ways to use your follower slot! Now for the disclaimer
This skill has not been reworked since the posting of this guide. This guide was requested to me numerous times from the community since I have hit 99 in it. The meta for this skill may change and I will try to remember update this guide with current information this guide in my PEROSNAL opinion is going to be the most up to date guide on this skill.
Combat style of any kind
A lot of cash
Prayer bonus gear
99 in whichever combat skill you use
A will to live
A massive cash stack
DO NOT HAVE A FOLLOWER WHILE DOING THIS SKILL OR IT WILL NOT WORK!!!!!
First go to the skilling tab in your teleport menu located in your mages book and teleport to the taming skill
Once here Talk to the Taming Expert to receive a brief overview of Taming and to receive 5 Lassos (This is very important to read)
She will instruct you to go catch a wolf inside her pen you must be on this exact tile on right side of the gate or you will not be able to go inside (This is a known bug that has not been patched as of uploading this guide)
Now you will see wolves when you right click have a tame option and an attack option. It is best practice to lower the HP of whatever Mob you are trying to tame for highest possible chance of successful taming. I personally will never try to tame anything above 20 HP. You can do as you see fit. During the tutorial you will be able to catch the wolf within the 5 lassos that the Taming Expert gives you. This is so you can complete the tutorial.
After you tame the wolf you will make your way back over to the Taming Expert and she will hand you a training whip and tell you the tutorial is completed you are free to train at your will.
Getting levels quickly:
99% of your XP while training Taming will come from failed taming attempts. Depressing I know but that is just how the skill is made and this is why you need a large cash stack to do taming. With regular Lassos I noticed I would get about 1-2 tames every 100 lassos typically. 100 Lassos are 10M cash. Don't be afraid there is hope. XP scales per mob you go against. Meaning the higher the level Mob the more XP per failed attempt. The only way to boost these XP rates will be with Bonus XP boosters/Well/and DXP. I would highly recommend doing this skill with the most boosters physically possible or it will cost you even more!!!
As it stands right now there is no level factor in taming Mobs. I at 99 Taming would have the same chance at taming a level 1 wolf as someone who has level 5 taming if we were using the type of lasso. This makes training the skill very easy as you will know exactly what Mob you should be trying to tame based on the level guide in game
There is not much to say on this topic other than go for the highest level creature you can and just start spam clicking,99 will come just as fast as you can stick it out. It will suck at first but stuck it out it is worth it!
As it stands right now there are 5 different types of Lassos in the game
Lasso Worst Lasso for Taming 100k GP from Taming Expert or by Mob drop. Otherwise known as your XP giver
Celestial Lasso Second worst Lasso for Taming 300k GP from Taming Expert or by Mob drop
Lava Lasso Best Buyable Lasso Costing 1M GP from Taming Expert or by Mob drop
Blood Lasso (Second Best Lasso costs 5k Blood Money in Points Shop)
Master Lasso (100% catch rate and cannot be obtained yet)
No official information of these Lasso's has been put out except for Master Lasso on catch rates
While Taming I found the Blood Lasso to work quite well in terms of catching the one Creature I had my eyes out for and took me 30 Lassos. Or roughly 150k Blood Money.

Taming Dragon Guide:
Dragons are by far the hardest Mob to train due to them having an attack that you cannot block that can do up to 70 damage (possibly Higher). This attack can be channeled back-to-back. The attack looks like a little fire bomb and when it hits pray that RNG is on your side because it may hurt. I have not found a way to mitigate the damage the only thing you can do is just eat your food to max HP and push through!
Example of the special fire attack from dragons!
Training Your Creature and using them in Combat:
Once you have caught the creature that you desire it is now time to train them. But hold on why would you want to train your taming creature? Your creature as long as it is following you will help you in combat by doing extra damage to whatever NPC you are fighting and the higher the level the more often it will apply damage! Pretty Pogggg . (picture of my dragon applying 35 damage with my regular 24 hit splat)
Meaning the higher out of 1000 the more often for example someone with 500/1000 dragon level will have their dragon hit more often as someone with 100/1000. The exact percentages or hit rates have not been released to public as of now!
Training creatures is very easy. All you need is your Training Whip (Or better which will be discussed below) and just get wacking! You will get 1 level for every 1000 damage you do Meaning you need to do 4 Million damage total to max out all types of Taming monsters. To do this with max efficiency you will need Potions and Prayers to hit as high as possible!
You can train 4 different types of creature types for levels in Taming:
I would not recommend training anything that isn't Dragons or Wolves as the rest have to be manually healed and just isn't worth it to me. But hey it's your life you do as you please
Example of interface when you have a Tamed pet. Just have whip equipped and hit train!
Different types of Whips:
Training Whip (5 Million GP from Taming Expert) +82 Str bonus
Training Whip T2: (50 Million GP from Taming Expert) + 92 Str Bonus
Training Whip T3: (125 Million GP from Taming Expert) +102 Str Bonus
Master Training Whip: (Cannot be obtained yet) + 122 Str Bonus
The difference in whips is just the strength bonus stat which will allow you to train your Creatures faster!
I hope you guys find this guide helpful! I will try to keep it as updated as physically possible! Any and all Feedback is appreciated. Have a great day!
