Taming.png Taming is one of the Skills available for players to level up as they perform certain actions that give them Taming XP. Leveling Taming increases the player's Extra Pet XP and Pet Luck Stat Icon.pngPet Luck.

Roman Numerals are used to express its levels in-game.

Although Taming goes from levels 1 - 50 (I - L), there is 50 XP required to reach the first level, meaning there is a "level 0", just like all other skills.

Leveling XP[]

Taming XP gained depends on the skill XP gained and on the pet's type. Using a pet whose type differs from the skill XP gained results in less Taming XP earned. A pet must be active to earn Taming XP. Different skills result in different amounts of Taming XP gained.


Zoologist is an ability exclusively unlocked by leveling up the Taming Skill. Each level of Zoologist grants +1% Pet XP gained and +1Pet Luck Stat Icon.pngPet Luck.

Each level of Taming grants one level of Zoologist. For example, if the player were on Taming level 15, the player would therefore also be on Zoologist level 15.

Leveling up taming is not only good for extra pet luck but can also be used in order to upgrade pets using Kat. Players will need taming level 10 to get a pet from Rare - Epic and taming level 20 in order to get a pet from Epic to Legendary. It's also very effective for leveling pets faster if the player has a decent level of at least 25. It can also be used to upgrade the base damage of the Daedalus Axe.


  • Doing an action with a pet that is already level 100 still yields Taming XP. The excess of XP will be "credited" to the pet, so if its rarity is upgraded, the excess will be added to the pet's XP. This means that the player's pet can still be level 100 after picking it up from Kat, if it has enough excessive XP at the previous rarity.
