Lions are level 8 creatures that are tameable if you have a level 8 or higher Taming skill. They can be found in a variety of locations such as the area around Foehan and in the forests of Marali. The Lion is swift and deadly, with an above average ability to do damage. However, they also become damaged more easily than Lava Spiders, for example. Lions are suseptable to poison. The Lion is an excellent pet against magic creatures, particularly the Gaper and Bone Mage. It is difficult to solo some high level creatures, such as Giants, until the Lion is properly leveled. This is due to the great amount of damage a Giant can inflict.
