Ienos Control Stone didn't work
I have a bunch of the permanent ones from the dice game, and I looted the 30-minute one off Ienos. The ground familiar that spawned in was Phantom, which was awesome. What was not awesome was the fact that it wouldn't let me try to tame him. Fair enough, as I didn't have his mark, but I didn't have marks for the Hoonbabas I tamed previously and that worked perfectly fine. The only difference I can think of is that Hoonbaba is already in my bestiary and Phantom is not, but if that's true it's kind of a terrible system. My other guess was that you had to knock down part of his health before you could attempt taming, but the thing said "taming conditions unmet" right up until I accidentally killed him. What gives? Is this supposed to happen for some reason or is it a bug?
ETA: used my last keystone and got a Scalleda (which is fine, I need one anyway) and a Magma Hound. Both said taming conditions were met despite me not having a mark for either of them (beyond the control stone). However, both are also in my bestiary already, so that doesn't exactly tell me anything new.
