Can only the scroll of taming tame it? MastaJAG

There is nothing inherently untameable about unicorns, however, they have base 70% magic resistance. If you are level 1 and the unicorn is level 4, that translates to 70/(100-4+1)% chance to resist taming. Replace your experience level with 9 if using a scroll or 10 if a magic harp instead of the spell. Special unicorn-ness applies to getting in range: Become invisible so it will (let you) approach, fling it junk gems to make it peaceful and therefore less dangerous, and finally try to tame it several times while standing right next to it. (Confused taming has a wider range). -Tjr 13:48, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
