More About MMO games with Taming

First of all, there are three types of MMO games with Taming. In the first type, this feature used just as decoration. You can tame various pets, but it's more about collection challenge and accessory for the character than a functional part of the gameplay. In such games, taming is usually available to all players and does not require the development of this skill, you can without much effort catch the animal that caught your attention.

In other games of this genre, a concept of taming is entirely different. Usually, there is a specific class of creature tamer, so if you want to make this feature one of the core activities in the game, you have to pick this role. In these MMO games with taming, pet hunters have access to creatures with a wide range of abilities and innate characteristics, so that you can rely on them in battle or other aspects of the game - it all depends on the creature's abilities. Also, a quite popular feature is pet fights, where the most levelled and skilful creature wins.

Finally, some MMO games with Taming use this function as the core aspect. In such games, absolutely everything that you do ties to your ability to subordinate a creature and harmonise with it. The higher your skill, the higher you can rise in top of the players, which means that you will be able to tame the unique and valuable beasts.
