Greetings Annie6246 I have not done much taming but the one problem I has was I use 2 builds then, 1 for taming and 1 for combat.When I would tame something and then hit x to go back to combat build i could not tame. I had set my taming build equipment to have a blank necklace and when I tamed it became the necklace for that animal. When I switched back it put my combat necklace in the slot. Probably not same problem and I was new to taming but just wanted to throw that out there. ope you get it figured out soon and happy hunting.
