Design change request / issue
According to this post:
"Non-paralithode pets in the Wreck of the Ararat will now drown and upon death will be auto-stabled"
This unfortunately affects tamed rats that are roaming around the ararat. (indeed, confirmed they will get stabled).
I was looking forward to organizing a guild of players to take down the shadowlord with a large rat infestation. These can be leveled up to 3 slots, and are almost certainly capable of performing better than the current 4 slot paralithodes.
Ideally, the UO team would consider re-working the mechanics around paralithodes, as well as making the hydra tamable, per the discussion at this link. (hence the design change request).
Please also consider adding a raffled housing plot (with some limitations) to the underwater area. (similar to plots in abyss).
The silver serpents in there should also be tamable.
(others have pointed out that at least on atlantic, farming this boss still happens regularly, though the flawed taming mechanic should ideally be fixed).
