Is it wrong of me to think that when the pet system was mentioned, my first thought was if it would tie into alchemy? Like if the pet would poop out components (unicorn poop is a component that you can get out of a Cache by the way), or if it would be possible to harvest components like maybe horns, nail clippings, scales, or even to shear off fur (since, you know, alpaca).
I'm going to show willing and try this out if/when it happens.
EAGLE emotion_dowant must have eagle, but yeah if they are going to die constantly, ffffffffffffff****kkk that, they should aid us in ZOMG and fetch gold for us by doing mini quest for us or something, have it go somewhere on gaia, then come back and
Admin: Your pet as returned with [insert gold/item here], congrazzless *confettii*
and give you a special reward the day you joined and the day of your birth and when it dies, if applicable, it leaves a mystery egg of some other kind of pet you can trade or sell for a better pet.
I would like to have a pet that if I attended to each day then Bam! Full fledged new awesome pet for my avatar. And if you forget to feed it one day, it just means you'll have to wait another day to get it. razz
Pretty sure this will be their 3rd attempt at this.
First Evolving items. Then Aquariums. And now whatever they intend to do now.
I'm not convinced that Gaia really WANTS pets.... I just think HQ wants another profitable cash cow.
I don't see it happening anytime soon.
What I would want to see is something that uses both cash and gold and it generates items.
Like, the pet shop would consist of different animals and the "premium" animals would cost cash while there could be less exciting animals for gold. The type of food used could be done the same way too. Better food costs cash instead of gold. And if you use the better food/toys, you have a decent chance at getting a "rare" item. Kind of like how our RIGs are tiered but we control the odds in a way. To create that feeling that our pet is with us, it could be sitting next to us on the header. So that way these pets will not be confused with the pets we already have. But it could be animated in the header so that if it needed something, it could do something to show it.
