Imprinting is a way to improve the stat-values of a bred creature. It involves different actions of caring during the maturation process.

Only one player can imprint a newborn baby. If this player manages to care for it during the maturing phase, the creature will get stats bonuses and an additional bonus of up to 30% in each damage and resistance when this very player rides it. The player they want to imprint need the skill Breeding for Tier 1, Breeding Tier 2 for Tier 2 or Breeding Tier 3 for Tier 3 Creatures

Giving care[]

Imprinting is prompted by the baby, juvenile, or adolescent creature showing a text "Wants Care In: HH:MM:SS" hovering over it. Once the timer runs out it wants one of two types of care:

  • Wants to cuddle - just press the use key (e)
  • Wants to walk with the player - Whistle follow t for about 0-20 foundations distance from starting location (walking in circles does not seem to fulfill this, walk directly away from the baby in a straight line).

This will raise imprinting progress and set a timer for, currently, about 8 hours until you can imprint further. Any imprinting done is permanent and will not decay if you neglect to imprint the creature afterwards.
