Do People actually tame These and use them? I tamed a few from a t hunt but not sure if i should Keep them
There was a time when I kept a few but I realised they are just a novelty pet, never used them so released them all. Whilst they boast some admirable stats you literally cant do anything with them as they spawn 5 slot which can leave some very big holes in their elemental resists.Do People actually tame These and use them?

Try to get on with super overcaps in them, and keep that one. Check on the max of the overcaps and get just one, the best one and skill the overcaps. They are not too bad.Do People actually tame These and use them? I tamed a few from a t hunt but not sure if i should Keep them
100% Cold Crimson/Platinum Drakes with Chiv+AI tear apart the Belfry GD, even in a 1v1. I run Consume Damage on mine, get him up on the platform with the GD, discord the GD, and watch my 100% Cold Platinum Drake tear him apart, without ever needing vetting from me. Can quickly solo the Belfry in 10 mins or less that way.The main thing I see the frost dragons used for regularly is the belfy, as it works better than a GD against the Belfry's GD.
Otherwise, people use cold drakes or the event Frost drakes, but there's the danger when people try doing the Belfry without using the feather, that you can lose the pet from lost loyalty trying to command it on/onto the platform. I had a fully trained cold drake go wild there, and had to retame it (luckily others were fighting the Dragon so I was able to isolate the drake and retame).
Whereas, if you lose a Frost Dragon, all you had invested was the tame.
And you missed the point of "easy to lose if you don't use the feather to get up top".100% Cold Crimson/Platinum Drakes with Chiv+AI tear apart the Belfry GD, even in a 1v1.

100% Cold Crimson/Platinum Drakes are easily obtainable, they spawn in Ice Dungeon, and start off as 2 slots.
Which is why it is inexplicable to me why, with so many Tamers in Ultima Online, and considering how devastating it is to loose a pet on which one has invested so much in THAT way, this issue has not been yet fixed for good....You lose a fully trained & scrolled pet - I've seen people rage-quit the game over.
And taking more than 2 people into the fountain is just insane... I've been in with 4 people and you could barely move at all with all the crap spawning continually and dropping stuff.Personally, I think it's because I don't think the devs realize people can get pets to the belfry platform with NO ONE going up there (bypassing the need for the feather), and if they realized it was the main method used, it would be nerfed in a heartbeat as an exploit.
That, or they do consider it an exploit, but don't want to make any more players mad about the roof, after their fix to the fountain to prevent the "bagged parts" exploit eliminated the only way many were able to do it legally otherwise (building 4 full drains, but to only 3 or 2 of the closer exit ports, as 90% of the time the 4th port is too far for 1-2 people to get connected in 30 minutes).
Next time you get a nice one like that let me know I'll come tame it. I'd love to have one on LA.I've seen some Frosts prior to taming that were very close to 140 in wrestling and 1-4 other skills (tactics, parry, resist spells, magery), so those can be very nice "low maintenance" pets even after the taming skill drop. One of them had physical and cold resist in the 87-90 range, and the other 3 resists in the 57-65 range. I led it off and kept spamming people that they could tame it if they wanted, and where it was (south of Yew gate Trammel, at about the same latitude as the cemetary), but not sure if anyone did. If I'd had the stable room (and if my tamer/TH hadn't already had a nearly full beetle and no room in the house to unload at the time, as I was TH to collect loot for donation to the LA Player center), I'd probably have tamed it myself.
