Asked on IRC - no answer. Searched on here - no answer. Googled - no answer. So. Been working on my first ever tamer. Got him up to 79.7 (displayed taming; GM Animal Lore). Found and successfully tamed my first frienzied ostard. Calmed it down (eventually) and "All good" "All follow me" and fed it (some meat, after a kind soul on IRC told me apples wasn't the way forward - who knew that frenzieds aren't vegan? ). When I fed it the meat, I got the "Your pet looks happier" message. Then I got the above message: "Your pet cannot bond with you until your animal taming ability has risen." Now, as I understand it, taming ability = bonding ability. If I can tame the critter, I should be able to bond with it, right? Bug? Or am I still missing something obvious? Cheers in advance.
