Pet pain...

9 posts in this topic

So...I understand the RNG in game.  But when I have to continually spend RL cash to smash pets for higher tiers I feel a little cheated.  I'm at $320-$360 and I only have 2 Tier 4's.  The other two keep going tier 3.  I tried leveling them to 10 to help but it didn't make a difference.  I feel like a dolt.

I never fell into that trap thankfully. I only have one T3 pet though. I bought them from the marketplace so I never had to spend irl cash.

Chance to get a Tier 4 pet changed since a year? Yes? No?

About accurate % chance to get a Tier 4 pet? No Idea?  Well of course we don't know.. (-> see my first question)

I'm tired of all this bullshit. We need more transparency.

At least you learned from it. Don't buy into random chances like this unless you're absolutely willing to walk away with nothing to show for your money.

I AM sorry you had this experience though, and I really wish it wasn't this way.

I recomend you to put every pet in MP notice, try to buy em all and once RNGsus graces you with a pet; buy a pair for it and level them together, aslo never select to keep skill or appearances since rumors claim it deminishes the chance for a higher tier pet, idk if this is true but I've experienced it personally. . .and well, you shouldnt take any chances, even if it's just rumors, I also hope you're getting them to lvl 10 before mashing em together as it increases your chances, I also recomend you not to breed flying pets since they're known to have issues, including wasting time flying towards elites instead of looting, or flying too far from you and thus, looting less efficiently, also I'd like you to know that if looting speed is what you're looking for, the difference between T3 and T4 isnt that noticible, the range is only a few feet wider and they're only .5 seconds faster, then again if min/maxing skills is what you care about, just buy dogs/foxes and aim for T3 but no more and only mash them for a T4 if you get horrible skills that you have no use for.

I've done numerous tests (I love theorizing) having all T3, both T4s and 2 T3s and the difference in loot; even 1 shotting things like pirates or even Rhutums (for black stones when the event is active) and trying to maximize kill/time, the difference is underwhelming and absolutely not worth it, because there will be a time in your character progression in which you'll be killing too fast and too constant for even 4 T4s to keep up, the difference between having all T3s and all T4s is half a pet, at most; I mention this just to put it into perspective, so you know if having half a pet is worth the grief and money.

In my honest opinion you're better off getting a bunch of T3s aiming for combat experience for a 12% increase than a couple dozen extra loots for $300.

I myself have 2 T4s and several T3 waiting for worthy prospects, but since RNGsus has forsaken me; I havent been able to breed any pets since the major change to their skills.

Funny thing, I only got my T4's after I stopped spending a week leveling them to 10 and just smashed them together.

RNG Cash boxes   .. the #1 sickness of most MMO's & even a lot of MOBAs lately.

I guess I have been lucky so far. I could get my tier 4 hawk, dog and fox with the minimum of 4 tier 1 ones. Only the cat took 6 tier 1 ones. Always leveled up to 10, always with the foodbar full. Always letting the game choose the new appearance, sometimes locking a parent skill, sometimes not.
