Fixed some of the links, the training guides are apparently gone. So if anyone can point me in the direction of new player written training guides ill update them.

Discordance training works great at the Acid Slugs in the Abyss Dungeon. You can send the pet on the bottom with the slimes and have it guard you. You then move and stand overtop on the ledge. You do not get hit by the slimes and as long as you put on Consume Damage, the pet wont lose much health. I have used this tactic a few times for disco cu's after training their wrestling, etc.

For anyone who doesn't know (which I am sure there aren't many), discord cu's with a pure mage/Spell weaving with as much SDI as you can get is insane (PM me if you want to know specifics). The pet is effectively your tank with discordance (must be 120) and you just bomb any mob. This build is great for Cu farming, just about any solo farming to include Lady Mel who is easily solo able with this spec/cu combo.

Colleagues, I have a small problem. My Сu Dog doesn't want to use chivalry, the skill doesn't grow. All skills are trained almost to the maximum, but the chivalry remains 40. Tried to train on vortex. shadow and blood elem., riktor spawn but all in vain. Can someone tell me what else to try

Did you put another magic on?

Show a pic of the two lore and knowledge screens.

Poisoning is a magic. It removed chivalry. Pets can only have 1 active magic.
The lore and knowledge screen in black tells you what the pet can do. Notice that chivalry is not there.

Time to make another one. :)

The lore and knowledge screen in red shows what you added. You said you added poison. But when you added Chivalry the poison stopped gaining.

Repel is a horrible skill to put on a pet.

So in order to train a poison and chivalri, i must first train the poison, then add chivalri and train it, right?
Why repel is horrible, it is advised for hiking to the roof :rolleyes:
Which build of cu sidhe u using on the roof with char-bard?

You can not have 2 active magics on a pet. Posion is a magic. So when you choose a different magic the other one goes away.

AI/Chiv on a pet does the most damage. Repel does not last very long so it may trigger and the pet take no damage.

This build was advised to go to the roof, can you advise something?

Start over and make an AI/Chiv pet. They do the most single target damage.


Choose the ability and magic in the last round.
 
This is a very thorough and a great write-up that I am frequently consulting. I do have a few questions though:

1. Is there any solid advice on training pets with stats/attributes below 125 to get to 125 first before standard training and points application? UO-CAH says that you can train up to 125 in stat/attributes for free but I can't find any info on how to do this. I've had some pets gain but then stop short of 125 and I can't get them to gain again.

2. Does anyone have any info on training a Sakkhran Bird of Prey? I can't find any info on them online beyond they are a vanity mount that start at 1 slot and can be trained to 3 slot. They look like hiryus/lesser hiryus and have the same damage type as hiryus/lessers but not sure if they can also have bushido naturally or if they have to be opened on the tokuno islands to gain bushido. What about other magic/special abilities?

1. Shadow eles raise stamina and dex. Also sitting on a ship with soulbinders aggroed on the pet raises them.

2. That bird only goes to 3 slots and you wont get max damage. So only a few players train them.

I trained a Less Hiryu that was lurking behind Yukio because her guards weren't doing anything to protect her lol

The Lesser Hiryu is rated just below 70 and I'm curious if anyone has any recommendation on builds for this pet? It comes with Grasping Claw and Dismount. I was thinking of putting Bushido on it, and maybe Armor Ignore?

A few questions I'm hoping all y'all vet's can help a 10-month old player out with :)
  1. Would adding Bushido and FWW be redundant, given Whirlwind Attack comes with Bushido? I'm not sure I understand the difference, after reading the Uo-cah descriptions, other than FWW puts Ninjitsu on your pet (which I'm wary of having to build, alongside Bushido)
  2. Would Chiv/AI + FWW be better? I have a triton with Chvi/AI + Explosive Goo. I like it but can't mount it :p
Thanks in advance!!

That will get a single magic one. Like AI/Chiv etc.

Because they have grasping claw they can not get 2 other specials. No AI/FWW/Chiv on a Hiryu.
Tritons are what we wish Hiryus were.

For FWW and Chiv you need 700 more points so you would have to add the FWW in round 3 then Chiv in round 4.

They do 100% physical damage so they are not as popular as other pets because most Mobs have high phy resist.

Also it will be no where near the Triton. Healing makes a huge difference in pet survival.

Awesome! yea, that healing on Triton's and Cu's is amazing, together with Consume makes those pets near invincible.

What about, instead of using Chivalry, use Bushido (which has a Whirlwind attack) and then adding AI, so you have Bushido/AI/GraspingClaw/Dismount? If I read correctly, Grasping Claw reduces physical resist, then AI would reduce resists even more. I'm not sure if Bushido on pets is mostly used for defensive purposes, or if the offensive attacks like Whirlwind and lightning strike are worth using.

A Bushido pet is tanky but AI/Chiv does the most damage. If you run consume you should go for killing fast.

But Lessers are disposable pets, make one of everything and try them out. I have one with each magic.
