Pet Training "BATTLE DEFENSE" question.....
While reading a few posts, in this one https://community.stratics.com/threads/platinum-and-crimson-drakes.388884/post-2850555 atsome point I read the following words :
If you get wrestling to 100. Battle defense will appear.
The UO Wiki at https://uo.com/wiki/ultima-online-wiki/skills/animal-taming/animal-training-abilities/ describes it as :
Battle DefenseTrains the creature in the disarm and paralyze special moves. Also trains the creature in the Heightened Senses & Shield Bash mastery abilities.
UOGuide, instead, describes it as differently (rather then indicating the disarm and paralyze special moves and Heightened Senses & Shield Bash Mastery abilities as the UO Wiki does, it indicates to train the creature in Mortal Strike, Concussion Blow, DIsarm, Toughness and Stagger skill Masteries) and this significant difference, confuses me because they look to me as quite different things and I do not understand which is correct, whether the UO Wiki or the UOGuide.
Furthermore, what does Heightened Senses do for a pet ?
See https://www.uoguide.com/Animal_Training where Battle Defense is indicated as:
Besides that confusion to understand what exactly Battle Defense does for a pet, another initial problem that I have, is that Toughness & Stagger, at least for characters, are Macing skill Masteries, not Wrestling Masteries.
But I imagine that for pets it might be different ? Anyways,it got me confused and I would like to understand.
Second, what does "Disarm" do for a pet used in PvM ? Most MoBs do not use weapons so,I am not sure what good could do on a tameable pet to have Disarm....
Third, I went to https://www.uo-cah.com/pet-planner and tried to calculate the cost in training points for this "ability" (?) so as to make sure to save up the needed points for it, but I could not figure out where to make it show up in the planner so as to see how many points it costs....
Also, if I try to select this "Battle Defense" as the Magic ability, I get a warning message that I have more then 3 abilities selected (Battle Defense as Magic ability, Dragon Breath as Special Ability, Move 2 Paralyze and Move 3 DIsarm as Special Moves, nothing in the field Move 1...) and I cannot edit anything in any of those fields. So, what gives ?
The stratics post says that it appears when Wrestling reaches 100.0 skill level, so I am supposed to start the pet training with mo Magic Ability at all and only pick it once its Wrestling reaches 100.0 ?
Is anyone familiar to it and can please help me out with making me better understand what this Battle Defense is all about, how many training points it cost, and whether it is a Magic Ability, a Special Ability, a Special Move or an AOE Ability and when I am supposed to actually activate it in the training process of a pet ?
Thank you for the kind help.
