After the pet update to the magery AI system where the change was made to make pets use mana instead of magery skill for casting... any of my newly tamed dragons / nightmares / and white wyrms gain zero magery skill. I have tried for several hours with whispering on and still havent gained even .1 even though the pets have gained 100 to all other skills.

I guess it is no longer checking them for skill gains since they can cast any spell now.

I'm messing around with the new pet training stuff, and the magery pets are gaining fine, albeit slow due to them cast low level spells mixed in.

I'll wait till that goes out for testing then. This has been reported by a few players on my shard though. Since no longer skill based, it makes sense.

The way it used to work, is if the creature met or exceeded the overall skill cap, ie 700, it won't gain. That could be why they never gained. This will no longer be the case with the pet training additions.

That shouldn't be the case unless it was bugged ffrom the start. This is a recent problem, I think. I left a newly tamed nightmare with whispering on a Shadow Iron Elemental for 3 hours and didnt gain .1 to magery. B

If it was a 700 limit before then gdrags wouldnt be able to gain skills. OSI never had this limit of 700.

Take a perfect greater dragon skill spread:
Wrestling 130
Tactics 126
Resisting Spells 126
Anatomy 0
Healing 0
Poisoning 0
Magery 126
Eval Int 126
Meditation 100
Focus 100

totaling: 734 to 834 depending on Focus being available or not.

That was the case before. It's always been like that prior to pet training.

Yeah something is definitely up. Pets no longer gain magery once tamed. Before the changes to their spell casting was added they did, now they do not.
