Imprinting > Walking[edit source]

Regularly imprint animals by walking them in circles... arguably even trapping them behind another animal and have them fruitlessly follow. That being said, straight line walking does *appear* to be better... random numbers make it hard to truly judge this. ๐‘ช๐’“๐’–๐’…๐’…๐’๐’š (talk) 12:56, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

Word play[edit source]

In the notes section it is mentioned that there's no penalty for not caring. This is of course not true, because you'd lose the bonus it gives. True, imprinting was added later to the game, but that doesn't mean it's not an official part of this game. You might as well say that there's no penalty for not feeding kibble during taming. 217.121.69.76 11:38, 7 December 2017 (UTC)

Well, that depends on how you define penalty. If you say, less bonus is a penalty, it's true. But that's a rather pessimistic view IMO, when only penalty exists and no bonus at all. I'd say if you do nothing it's the vanilla-state, and anything you do extra adds a bonus. Penalty would be if you get worse than the vanilla-state.--Cadaeib (talk) 22:58, 7 December 2017 (UTC)
