Pet breeding. Read this if you're thinking about it.


69 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

This is coming from my experience and also some KR players testing it out on their version in terms of pet breeding. I've posted this information numerous times in the past during CBT2 and tested it myself then... hoping to save you some cash, but I can't save you from the RNGesus.

Anyway, my results for proof:

ErSwHzc.png

First, let's go over the this topic that gets circulated a lot:  "You have a higher chance of exchanging for a higher tier, if your pet level is at 10"

- This is false.  This game is RNG and you either get lucky or you don't.  The majority of the exchanges were done with level 1 pets straight out of the cash shop, besides the 3 that I've had since launch.

 

A general guideline as far as the exchanges for tiers go:

T1 + T1 = T2 or T3

T2 + T2 = T2 or T3  (apparently, someone got a T4?  I wish I never read/saw that post as I believe this is super rare or is false.  More on that later)

T2 + T3 = T3 or T4

T3 + T3 = T3 or T4

T3 + T4 = T4 

Cheapest cost to get T4:  $36 ($9 x 4 pets)

I've followed this general guideline and received a T4 by exchanging T2 + T3 or T3 + T3 in one try.  I did however, try the T2 + T2 as I've read someone do it here.  Well, it was my fault as it went T2 TWICE and it was on my goddamn hawk that costs more than a cat.  Whoever that person is that posted it, I will find you and kill you on sight.  FACK!

Also, the priority of my exchange was for the following:  +1 fishing/+Karma %/+Combat EXP >>> + Life Skill EXP

As you can see, RNGesus did not smile upon me today and Daum is telling me to go life skills and become a carebear... (I actually don't mind processing as that's very useful for some AFK money making down the road).

In short only bother if you like wasting money for nothing....

The biggest kick in the balls to me was losing the dog's ability to call out hostile players.

This is good info thanks. I am curious have you ever saw 6% Bonus on a single pet? We are trying to figure out if it is possible to have more than 3% on a single pet as the patch note is fairly confusing on this aspect.

I have:

Two Tier 1 Hawks = Tier 3 Hawk (+3% karma, +3% Training)

Two Tier 1 Cats = Tier 2 Cat (+3% Cooking)

Tier 2 Cat from above + Tier 1 Cat = Tier 2 Cat (+3% Cooking) Wasted $9

Two Tier 1 Hawks = Tier 2 Hawk (+3% Hunting)

Tier 2 Hawk from above + Tier 1 Hawk = Tier 3 Hawk (+3% Karma, +3% Hunting)

IMO, it is pretty ridiculous that you can literally just throw away money like this.   Specifically the Tier 2 cat + Tier 1 cat yielding an identical tier 2 cat.

Yes, DO NOT do T1 + T2... or T2 + T2 in order to get T3 or T4.  That's the money saving tip.  I wasted 5 hawks for absolutely nothing.

I have not seen 6% bonus for myself or others that I've talked to so far.  I'm trying to see if there's a 6% karma bonus.

As far as EXP goes (life, combat) it is capped at 3% per the patch notes.

So what do you do with a Tier 2 then?  Wait to breed it with a Tier 3?  Honestly, i am not going to buy 2 more cats and then have them turn into a Tier 2 and then combine those into a Tier 2... what a waste of money.

Yes... unfortunately you waste more money to breed with T3 in an attempt for T4.

To be honest the system sounds a bit silly in general. Buying more pets to train your pets to have better skills instead of like.. just training pets. These guys aren't very good at coming up with good systems to earn more profit lol.

I wonder if what you're doing at the time has an effect on your RNGesus as well. I was just out fishing on my boat, and decided to trade my two dogs, well I got a new one: T2 +3% fishing skill. Yars, I have a fishing buddy!

Nah, just RNG.  I was just standing there so... I guess I could test out your theory when we can carry 4 pets.  While I have expendable income, there's absolutely no reason for a 4th T4 pet (unless it's guaranteed for +1 luck or fishing skill)

Yes, this is a money sink... it's not a necessity, but something is better than nothing?  (I am looking forward to the faster loot at lvl 10) as it would help in speeding up my grind without having to worry about loot.

Actually...

  ...it is a cleverly crafted system... designed specifically to lighten the load in your wallet even more so. ;-)

I merged my T1 cats they were both lvl10 got a T3.

 Also this  RU site has this calculator there is only the option for cats sadly it seems, but depending of the pets you combine (same species ofc) will give you a % which one you might get. and it was kinda accurate for me. http://bdobase.info/pets If you keep scrolling down on there site you will see at the other pets skins and looks that can have.

Yup, feeling quite the idiot myself for spending way too much on pets and realizing I was happier with my old pets than I am now...

I don't get why they don't just sell every pet variety on the cash shop and do away with the RNG system. I think it'd get more sales and better reputation for them.

I'd love a T4 German Shepherd but I don't even know if that's possible and I don't want to burn money to find out.

You can choose for them to keep the abilities of one of the parents or completely reroll.
