Dont get rekt by kakao about pet exchange

13 posts in this topic

Posted

i just want to make this thread and let those that have thought about exchanging pets for higher tiers to know that u definitely want to stop at tier 3 and only exchange ur pets at lv10 for the best possible chance. the explanation they give u is very unclear when it comes to exchanging and i got rekted. when u do exchange make sure u choose the option of not inheriting the appearance and the skill. the reason for that is the new skill ur pet will learn as tier 3 will always be better than the skill they learned as a tier 1 and the appearance of a breeded pet will guarantee to have better skin than the default that everyone got.

i hope atleast someone will benefit from all this. i exchanged 4 pets before i figured out.

Although it makes sense and I do it myself, I don't think it was ever proven that leveling pets to 10 improves chances of a better exchange outcome. I think it is more of a better safe than sorry issue.

Appearance is a matter of personal taste. For example I liked the looks of my T1 cats better than my T3 cat that is like an ugly cat from hell. Better just look up the list of possible appearances to make an educated decision (Something I regret not doing).

One instance where imo it is certainly worth to inherit a pet's skill is the +1 luck. If your pet has that, then better keep it because it is quite rare and useful as it is a +1 level for all your chars (family-wide).

Appearance never bothered me as I have pet visual turned off.  I do level them to 10 though just to be safe.

I mean the information in the pet breeding window literally says 'When high level pets are used, there is a higher chance to get an upgrade to the next tier'. Whilst this isn't 'conclusive proof' its such a hard thing to accurately test because of the cost involved in creating an appropriate sample size. In this case you will just have to trust that what the developers have written about their game is accurate.

Good point, I mean if one unrelated thing is wrong, then everything else must be wrong. If you have any extra tin foil hats could you pass me one, that way I won't make the same mistake again.

Cooldown on Candy Event, Knowledge on Mobs....

There are many others. It's rule No1 "Never trust tooltips in BDO".

No need to be aggresive. You stated your opinion, I stated mine.

The information ingame is sometimes just not true due to systems not working properly so because node investments dont work even though they should, this one might also not work. Why are you offended so fast?

As someone with three t4s(hawk, mckaw, and cat), the rest t3s with exception to the last event penguin, I have never leveled the pets prior to exchanging them as I don't see a point in doing it a second time.  All of them were level 1, amd I've only gotten a few t2s from that lot that had to be re-exchanged. Most of the time,  it's t3. Take from that what you will.

And how much money have you spent to obtain those T4 and T3?

two of my t4s were from the conquerors package. The McKaw need two extra pets for the 1 level difference,  all the other t3s, with exception to the red panda (that took i think two extra sets)were one shots, even my newest, Pipen, the owl. I think I have something like 10-12 pets total.  I know a few I won off the mp. Maybe 60, if that.
