This might be a problem for all beasts that get angered from taming, I only tried blood steeds yet though. I peaced it successfully, but once I tried taming it it got angered (as usual) and instantly broke free from being peaced. Tried it several times - always the same.

Is that intended?

Just in case it matters: all related skills were at GM

The only thing I can say related to this is that no one that I know of uses peacemaking. I dont think it's seen as very useful here (possibly because of what you mention above).

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. This is a great example of where I rely on my players to tell me when they are experiencing unexpected game mechanics. Sometimes there's a reason, other times it's a bug. But I need to know every time so I can tell. In this case, it turns out the chance to anger was set too high (known runuo issue) that I was not aware of but it's now been fixed.

Thanks

I always had a peacetamer, even before targetted peacemaking was in. Always used him for taming mainly and often had a second one for hunting.

On all shards I played on (OSI and free shards of all eratypes - dozens!) you could peace a beast and had time for about 2 taming attempts (even with angering). I never had anything break free from angering, but they usually snapped at me on the first try. They wouldn't move though and wouldn't bite a second time.

Wasn't so much of a challenge. I had to para the beast, but a nice fellow player was faster in taming it and gave it to me.

I will try tomorrow. No gaming time today. Alone at home with the kids.

Okay, I tried taming a mare now and what happens is this:

I successfully peace it. Roughly every 2nd taming attempt starts the taming process and the other result in angering (which might be comfortable but not realistic). When the peaced mare gets angered it walks towards me, hits me, but seems to stay peaced otherwise.

This seems to be a very odd behaviour I never encountered anywhere else. I would expect the mare to stay in its place (but still try to bite). It should not be able to hit me unless I stand right next to it. I guess this is a universal problem with all angerable species.

Of course it works as a workaround that angering does not happen so much, but it is not really UO of any era I played before...
