If we have multiples of the current pets- like, on several toons, will there be multiple in this stable, which will be tradable?
Quest pets duplicate, as do drop ones.
The easy way to determine if a pet will be tradeable.Right now, can you earn it on any of your characters interdependently of each other? In other words, can some of your characters have it and others not have it. If the answer is yes, then you will be able to trade itCan you get the fox kit right now on multiple characters? YesCan you get a pet reward from a quest on multiple characters (like minwing )? yesCan you vendor buy a pet from an NPC on some characters and not others? yesCan you earn it on different characters like darkmoon fair and Argent Tourny? yesCan you get Frosty from wotlk collectors edition independently? No.. it goes to all your characters on your account.If you can get it multiple times independently on different characters, then when 5.0 hits, that pet will ´stack´ up to 3 times. You can name each version a different name if you want. They will train to level 25 independently and you can ´cage´ and trade them independently. If you have 3 versions of fox kit, train one to level 25, and sell it, you will still have 2 versions at level 1.But don´t be confused, there are other pets, like Frosty, that you can still battle with, and raise to level 25, but you will never be able to have 2 versions of him, and never be able to cage or share him.This is not from a dev, just from my understanding and reading so far.
There goes my reason to resub...I may have been a fur trapper in a previous life or something, but for some reason I love, love, LOVE the idea of catching animals in the wild, putting them in cages and selling them for money. There's something wonderfully primal about it that appeals to me.Lineage 1 allowed you to do this via tameable pets you could catch in the wild and sell. I was always the pet supplier for my guild and it was great fun.With this change, I no longer have a reason to resub. I quit after DS and wasn't planning to come back until I heard about the ability to do this.Pokemon are tradeable for a reason, after all...
And yet...you can still trade the vendor/drop/quest pets....
To be more accurate, I enjoyed doing it in Lineage because I was capturing animals (alive) so they could be used as loyal pets. :PSame thing applies here, really.
I also dislike this, and dearly hope they change it back to the original idea, so what pets/companions WILL be tradable? Just the &*!@ty run of the mill ones already in the ah? They already said no Ce pets, now no wild pets? whats left? tcg pets? vendor pets? Also people have lives and jobs, and grinding for rares, fighting over rares...no profit all time sink and a lot a lot of frustration. Also a lot of pets will end up getting deleted since we cant trade them either. I agree caged pets should just revert to lvl 1
Not everyone's opinion though. I think it blows big time. I have multiple accounts that used to be linked after I unlinked them my first account had all the pets and the other 2 did not even if it wasn't caught on that account. I am still really pissed because now I can't even trade them back. Just really f*ed up unfix-able pain in the backside!
