*updated 16/11* Comprehensive Taming guide

Recommended Posts



Taming is a skill that allows players to tame various creatures
all across Gielinor, players must visit the taming expert, who
will assist you in catching your first creature.
Taming experience is based upon successfully or failing to catch a
creature, experience is rewarded each time a lasso is used.

This guide focuses on the most efficient ways to train Taming.
Generally when taming for the best experience rates, players will
use the lowest tier lasso, the lowest priced lasso has a lower chance
to catch any given creature. 

However; the experience given from using:
Lasso, Celestial Lasso, Flaming Lasso, Blood Lasso, and Master lasso,
Every lasso gives the same amount of experience on use.


When training, every taming creatures experience gets better
than the last. E.G. Once you're level 5 taming the spider will 
provide more experience than the dog or the wolf.

Taming also provides a lot of potential experience for passive
combat skills. You must be engaged in combat when training Taming.
lowering the hitpoints of any creature makes it more likely to tame
any taming creature. 


General information

You can begin to train taming by speaking to the taming expert
south-east of the bank on the other side of the stream.


Speak to the taming expert, read through the dialog and click
Lets do it! Continue to read the dialog until the end, and the
taming master will tell you to tame a wolf. 

   How to tame

1. Attack the creature


2. Once attacking the creature you will have the ability to Tame.
   (NOTE: Lowering the hitpoints of creatures will increase
          your chances of taming the creature.)


3. Once the creatures hitpoints are as low as you can get without
   killing the creature is the best time to successfully 
   tame the creature.
(NOTE: for every 1/3 of hp lost, the creature gets 25% easier to tame.)

  TIP: Right clicking to tame can become tedious and cumbersome.
        -Left click the wrench icon. 
        -Left click the joystick icon.
        -Under NPC 'Attack' options drop the menu and set it to
         Always right-click
         Now when you left click the tame option will be on top

Training taming efficiently

Recommended skills
  50+ Attack
  50+ Strength
  50+ Defence
  43+ prayer



Players should use the best equipment they can afford, to prevent
damage as much as possible. High defence can help prevent trips
to the bank, the use of a slave, or using the ::bank command to resupply
on food. Prayer can also be a very effective defence technique, however,
some creatures can hit through prayer.



The Lasso is an item used to tame creatures in game, and also used to
train the taming skill as the key component. Lasso's can be bought from
the taming expert south-east of the bank at home, or can be visited by
using the WarScape teleports in your spell book, you can also travel
to the taming expert via the WarScape teleporter in the middle of home.

the first lasso, with a low chance of successfully
taming a creature, but it is the most ideal to use while training
with the price of 100k per lasso, it's the most economical choice for
training, but not ideal for catching creatures you desire to tame.


Celestial lasso
The Celestial lasso, is a low level lasso for lower level
taming creatures. With the price of 300k per lasso, this lasso is 
best to begin your collection of taming creatures.


Flaming lasso
The Flaming lasso, is a mid-high level lasso for taming creatures you
desire to tame and train. With the price of 1m per lasso, you would be
best to only use this lasso if it's more cost effective than failing 
using lower level lasso.


Blood lasso
The Blood lasso, is a high level lasso for taming high level creatures.
Taming end game level creatures will prove more difficult and more
expensive using lower level lasso. (blood lassos can be obtained
through the point rewards shop, and is dropped by the blood dragon
as a rare drop.)


Master lasso
The Master lasso, will never fail to tame any creature in game
the master lasso can be obtained through a rare drop from high
level tameable dragons and also the taming task shop.


Training whips

The training whip is an item used to train the creature you have tamed,
there are 4 different tiers of training whips all can be seen below
with a short description of the differences between the tiers.

Training whips can be bought from the taming expert. The benefits of
training your tamed creatures greatly increases the strength and attack
of your tamed creature. per every 10 levels it hits 10% more accurate
and 10% harder, up to level 100, per different species. These levels can
be viewed by interacting with your tamed creature.

(NOTE) Training whips are only effective on taming creatures, and is not
effective on any attackable NPC.


Training whip
The training whip, is the lowest tier training whip. With the attack
bonus of Slash: 82 and a strength bonus of 82
this is the same attack bonus as the abyssal whip.
the training whip is 5m.

There is a 1 in 50,000 chance your training whip (T3) will transform
into a master training whip. The master training whip has a attack

Taming bandages


When your tamed creature is harmed and needs health, taming bandages
can be used to heal your creature, taming bandages can be bought from
the taming expert, in three separate tiers. Taming bandages, T2, and T3.

Orbs of enhancement


There are currently 3 orbs types in game: 
Orb of Enhancement (Nature) 
Orb of Enhancement (Gold) 

Orb of Enhancement (Infernal)


Once you have either of these you can take them to your taming habitat and use them on your tame
NOTE: This bonus applies to all of your tames and not just your current


These Orbs upgrade your tame in two ways.

1. Orb of enhancement (Gold) increases your tames drop rate bonus by 1% per each orb


2. Orb of enhancement (Nature) increases your tames damage on hit.



These orbs can currently be obtained from the donator shop (10 tokens) and the Taming task shop (700pts)


NOTE: The infernal orb currently has no use, I will update this thread as soon as we get any info/updates.


Taming tasks


A recent addition to taming is the Taming task master 'Master Drakos',

he offers tasks to tame creatures in return for points to spend in his shop.

You can find Master Drakos by using the taming teleport and then running south. see below


For each task you complete, you will get points in return based upon the amount of beasts you have to tame and the difficulty of the task,

the rewards are as follows

Easy tasks: - 3pts multiplied by the amount of creatures you have to tame.
Medium tasks: - 6pts multiplied by the amount of creatures you have to tame.
Hard tasks: - 12 points multiplied by the amount of creatures you have to tame.

Note: once you have tamed the creatures you will have to hand them over to Master Drakos to receive your points, (you will lose the tames)

Master Drakos offers players an assortment of items ranging from lassos to the coveted taming capes.
