There are 3 ways to gain respect 1. Change your name to the last letters of the griff family 1/17 of griffs will have that last name (look on YouTube or something else for names) 2 wear the royal crown, this shows that your the king or queen and will gain respect of any griffs. And 3 you need to be lvl 85+. If you do KO one without respect it will refuse to eat. Happy taming!
