      Wizard101 "Will Cast" Pet Talent Sneak Peek (Test Realm 2020)

      A very interesting idea having pets that "will cast" not "may cast". The latest KI has put out...

      Re: Wizard101 "Will Cast" Pet Talent Sneak Peek (Test Realm 2020)

      This'll make future boss fights much more interesting. Having that extra hit might mean a lot in a hard fight, especially if it's the finishing blow or if it's a hard solo fight. New strategies can be formed around having an extra hit as well. This might even help make the less popular pets (body type wise) more popular if their "will cast" talents are good and make soloing a lot easier for those of us who don't like to team up often.

      I just wonder how this will affect the 2.0 version pets (I think it's 2.0? I don't keep up with pet stats) if there's a way to increase the happiness stat. If it can be increased, the hatchery is about to become very busy with hatches.


      If there's another $5.00 one month membership sale again around the time of test realm, I might actually get it to join in on the fun. I might not have cared for making the "perfect pet" in the beginning when they started giving them talents (took me a few years to really start playing around in the hatchery for better talents instead of getting cute new pets for my collection and even longer to get serious about it), but experimenting with this new addition seems interesting.

      I'm not sure how much more complicated I want my pets to be.

      Re: Wizard101 "Will Cast" Pet Talent Sneak Peek (Test Realm 2020)

      On paper this looks promising...

      But in execution, I'm half expecting a worst case scenario, something along the lines of:


      • Won't work with current May Cast talents.
      • Spells we want as an assist won't be available for an unforseen amount of time.
      • Have to train a BRAND NEW version of your pet with the desired assist taking one of the talent slots.
      • Whatever the 359/359 is slowly refilling over time point by point, or chuck a small handful of crowns (250) to instantly refill it.


      Of course it may just be fear, but just a word of caution. Not everything will be as promising as it looks on the surface.

      Or it will only be available as a jewel that will only be available in certain stores not readily available to everyone.

      When the pet system first went live older pets were grandfathered in. Some pets have a pre and post system talent list. I Pretty sure while knowing which pets will have will cast i suspect school pets having the ability built so everyone has one free pet that cast a will cast

      Kingsisle mentioned that the new system will have a pet happiness stat. 5 must represent happiness cost. I guessing it like pet mana for pet with this stat. It no pvp so it won't break pvp. And it must build over time. Whether not basic pet care will renew this stat is yet to be seen but it must have natural way of rebuilding i guessing based on what in game it may be time based like energy unless there be new wisp out. But it looks to be something that doesn't require crowns to use.

      We can kinda discount this in my opinion. I doubt they would release something in the stores at this time due to the virus.

      Great, so now I have to worry about my pets getting peeved? Ugh! 'Sorry, I'm depressed. I demand a belly-rub or I'm not casting today!'

      I totally agree. With how gaming has changed in the past ten years, I worry that any amount of complex systems, can hurt the game than making it more enjoyable. The system could have a huge difference with the current meta of pets now which will make pet masters very upset with not only the addition to a new stat, but also the changes with the pet games to compound the problem. With such big changes to both the new pet stat and the pet game changes, what will be sacrificed for these? They can make it LOOK good, but could we be sacrificing a stat to have the stat. I hope it's nothing like pip conversion to ATTEMPT to replace critical and block. That would be VERY, VERY bad.
      ~~Happy Questing~~
