"I'd say your pet bear is unhappy."
"You think so? After all, he's only trying to bite off my leg."

Animal Lore, the study of the beasts of Britannia, is a highly useful skill for tamers and an intriguing pastime for scholars as well. With knowledge of animal lore, you may detect useful information about tamed creatures and, at higher skills, wild creatures. You may also use the skill to measure the loyalty of tamed pets.

    Loyalty and Animal Lore

    Animal Lore is a handy skill by which tamers may keep watch on the loyalty of their pets. A pet that has lost loyalty to its master is more likely to turn wild than a loyal pet. To raise a pet's loyalty, you should:
  • Keep the pet well fed
  • Issue acceptable commands to the pet
  • Your pet's loyalty drops if you:
  • Fail to feed the pet.
  • Issue commands the pet cannot or will not follow.
  • Leave your pet's line of sight for long periods of time.
  • To use Animal Lore to determine your pet's loyalty, use the following scale:

    If your pet is... Its loyalty is...
    Wonderfully happy Extremely high
    Extremely happy Very high
    Very happy High
    Rather happy Good
    Happy Good
    Content Neutral
    Content, I suppose Neutral
    Unhappy Low
    Rather unhappy Low
    Extremely unhappy Very low
    Confused Extremely low
