As previously announced, the Taming Updates are now live! PS: Bake Kitsune's combat is re-enabled now as well. :)
Update: Skill loss applied to creatures when they become tamed has been reduced from 30% to 10%, or when affected by the Paralyze spell the loss will be 14% (we have ideas in motion to add more depth to this area in the future as well)
Taming changes overview:
When taming creatures, you will earn 0.5 passive taming points for every skill gain that you get in Animal Taming, up to a maximum of 5 points.
These points can be used by killing monsters with your pets. Chances of earning a gain from killing a being is based on the beings difficulty, the more difficult the beings you kill with your pets, the higher the chance you will gain passively. Your pets need to do damage to beings in order for you to earn a gain.
The Active Gain system is used to limit the number of passive gains you can obtain per day from killing monsters. If you have reached your daily limit, you will receive a message indicating that you have exhausted your daily gains for passive taming.
Each creature contains a maximum pool of available points which can be cumulatively earned as skill gain to the totals shown below:
