Hello all,

I am trying to make an xmlspawner quest with a tamed animal being the item to collect. Is this possible? I have not been able to make the collection work.

I have an old holiday quest (by Shazzy?) from 2005. I do not believe it is an XML quest, but it does involve taming. You have to find, tame, and return all 9 reindeer for Santa. It uses named animals obviously - for the reindeer. So... I think you have to spawn a 'named' critter and set that as the quest animal. Here is a copy of that quest. (awesome quest BTW)

Also I found an old XML discussion where Arte explains how to do it with XML (looks like a named pet, and lots of syntax discussion)

The quick and dirty explanation is making the "tamed animal" an escort quest. For the completion, you want to check that Owner isn't Null.

This is a good example of an XmlEscortQuest. While the reindeer are "animals", you don't have to tame them, just talk to them and escort them a region you previously set up. I haven't written an XmlEscortQuest tutorial yet, but when I get some extra time I'll write one up and post it under the Tutorials section.

Thank you both for your responses. I think i can come up with something that will make an escort quest fit my idea. . Thanks again.
