The Taming Rod is used by new Hunters to learn how to train an animal to be a pet. It is provided when starting one of the quests called Taming the Beast which starts with a Hunter trainer. Each taming rod will tame a specific type of beast. Once a player learns the ability, he will no longer need a rod to tame creatures.
This item is provided for Taming the Beast.
