I checked UO Stratics - Hunter's Guide - Welcome! (The Hunters Guide) and they don't list a Greater Dragon. A regular dragon (or at least just 'Dragon') appears to require 93.9 in Taming, and takes 3 control slots. No listing of a Greater Dragon in the 'related to:' field, either. Sorry...

I believe it is a minimum of 105 lore and taming, however you WILL fail often. Even at Legendary lore and taming, you have a 30.8% chance of success.

As far as I know they have the same taming difficulty. Just harder to Bard, thus the "you anger the beast" message will be bad news :)

1/20 chance to tame dragons, no matter the skill (as long as you have the required taming).

I was wondering about the peace because I get the "You have no chance of calming this creature with 100 music / 100 peace.

With Jewels I have 110 taming lore, so I should be set there.

Not true. Greater drags have higher barding difficulty, and thus require higher taming/lore not only to tame, but to control. The 30.8% figure was on Stratics (the Taming forum I believe). Basically higher taming/lore DOES significantly improve your chances, though you will still fail often.

I don't have peace on my tamer and my playing hours at the time meant I'd have to go at it alone, so I had to tame my greater dragon the dirty way: I first hit Destard with my Cu Sidhe, found the dragon I wanted and pulled it to the area down south near the water elementals. Then my Cu proceeded to beat the hell out of the dragon until it was down to a sliver so its firebreath wouldn't kill me instantly. Mount the Cu, gate to stables, drop off Cu, re-enter the same gate and proceed to taming.

It was hard and I got killed three times, but it worked eventually. Wish I had thought about the whole Honor thing though!

See I put peace on my tamer just to do that. Actually I usually tame all animals the "rugged" way. lol. I guess I just thought it wasn't possible. Now that I know it is Adrianna, I am gunna go rock that instead. Thanks!!!

I have 120 Music/Peace and even with a dragon slaying lute I fail 80% of the time when trying to peace a greater dragon. If I area peace it improves my odds but that doesnt last very long..... I wish you the best of luck!

Honor is THE way to tame them. No muss, no fuss, no deaths.

Nothing, just keep trying.
And you are using honor on yourself, not them, right?

when they say honor, they mean invoking honor and then targeting yourself to make creatures ignore you. To do this you'll have to first build up honor by honoring creatures and then killing them.
