Taming allows a player to tame certain animals such as:
Horses, Pigs, Sheep, Cow, etc...
A player would tame animals for riding or gathering certain items. This skill cannot be used on wild beasts.
When the player walks up to a tameable animal there will be an option to tame it. The player will stand there for five seconds, and a message will pop up saying whether the player has tamed the animal or not.
The higher the level for taming defines the higher the chance the player has of taming it. Also, tameable animals will have different difficulty levels for taming.
