I just got a Legendary Stone Crafter in my first wave! >:O

At the very least he'll be useful for producing crap to sell to the elves.

So epic!

I was hoping this was a new thread so I could comment on how epic everyone's ideas are now... Im thinking of making floodgates that release war dogs during a siege now... so good...

As far as I know, there are 16 skill levels, and 106 professions, so the chances of getting a Legendary Animal Caretaker (assuming a normal distribution) would be

1/16 * 1/106

You should see the one I got  - a Legendary Fish Cleaner.  In a fort with no fishing industry at all.  He "unfortunately" got stuck in the barrel of my emergency magma surface release just as a test-firing occurred.  Such an unlucky coincidence...

That is at least theoretically useful,  an animal caretaker does nothing.

Urist McLegendaryFishCleaner: Fish, fish, fucking fish. I hate these fucking fish, I've been doing nothing but cleaning fish for my entire fucking life. "Hey Urist, got another fish for you to clean" "Fuck off", I can't stand it a day longer! I'm going to a fortress where there is no fishing industry, where they'll never make me clean another fucking fish for as long as my life lasts. Maybe I can make stone blocks, or engrave images, or forge armor. Maybe inspiration will strike and I'll create a legendary artifact. Yes, I feel like a new dwarf, like my life is starting again. A life full of hope and possibility...
"Hey Urist McFishCleaner, we're testing the emergency magma surface release"
"Fantastic. Magma plumbing, now that's what I'm talking about. Stand in the barrel? Sure thing. Can do. I'm your fish cleaner. Maybe afterwards we can... OH FUCK MAGMA!".
*Urist McLegendaryFishCleaner has bled to death*

I shall never sacrifice a fisherdwarf needlessly again.

Partly because Lobster !!RAGE!! Fists use fishing as the combat skill.

If he's so good at taking care of animals,surely he can take care of the beasts down below.Dump him in the caves,enjoy your tamed and well-taken care of forgotten beasts.If he doesn't manage to take care of them,posthumously demote him to a hauler.

You people don't get it. Obviously here we have a dwarf who has devoted his life to the welfare of animals. Somedwarf who cares. Somedwarf who wants to make a difference.

Have him live out the rest of his life as a butcher.
