      Pets and new things to come

      I finally made it back on test realm and I like to share some of the things that are nice and some that need improvement on.

      Nice things first

      I love how you put in teleporters in all the areas of Wizard City. Some of those runs were just so long, specially when we were requested to do something for the Dailies. Nice Job!

      I also like the new location of Sohomer Sunblade and how to get to the Kraken. The eels in Triton Ave. was really a nice touch, they fit there so perfectly!

      The facial expressions on the NPC are just amazing. The art work is just fantastic. Very nice!

      However, the things I am not so happy with

      Going back to pet. I see you have dropped the price for person to person hatch, so thank you for that. However, the kiosk hatching is just too high still. I looked up on of my friends v2 pets and to hatch with theirs was over 100,000. Now, I thought that the price would not be more then 80,000 is this something that is going to be fix? Or did I misunderstood something?

      Next egg timers. I just self hatched a Kookaburra which is a scruffy egg hatching time is 5 minutes, on test it was 4 hours, seriously why? That is just way too long and its not right. Even if you put them for 10 minutes, you will have those who will use an elixir instead of waiting those 10 minutes, which I think is much better of a compromise.

      The cost of raising the pet has gone up and it will require to use more energy which would result in more of buying elixirs. So, keep that, but at least reduce the egg time, please
      @Sparck I am tagging you to let you know about everything.

      P.S. Sparck, we really need something to store our elixirs in other then our back packs. I personally have 3 pages of it and there are some that I have yet to redeem. Also, the gear vaults do not have a spot to store our Deckalathon Decks in. Is this something you could talk to the team about.

      Stay Safe

      Re: Pets and new things to come

      I agree with this 100%. I still believe that the changes to the pet hatching system are unwarranted.

      I've been working on a specific pet and I've decided to keep track of my progress. So far, I am 16 hatches in, without a success, with 755190 Gold spent. I believe that 700K+ Gold (potentially over 1 million) + snacks + time spent for a single perfect pet isn't cheap.

      If anything, if anything at all, please consider removing that pesky gold cap!

      Re: Pets and new things to come

      I'm not surprised that they haven't just scrapped this new pet training and hatching system. A good chunk of the community could provide constructive criticism on why this new system would hurt not just new players, but also all players' pocketbook, yet all they can do is provide band-aids to a problem that wasn't broken to begin with.

      Even during difficult times like these where millions of Americans and others around the world are going unemployed and counting, KI thinks that it's best to promote the purchasing of elixirs for these 4, 5, 6 hr eggs that were 5 minutes before (and the energy elixirs required for the added points needed to train), rather than promoting saving money and putting food on the table for your family. Let alone all of the kids who rely on their parents or guardians for misc. "extracurricular funds" who are now out of work too. I can't imagine what that is like right now. But KI is a business, and businesses do what businesses do.

      I applaud KI for putting on the "First month of membership for $5" deal on more often this year so far, but that is being overshadowed by this pet update that I feel will both make people lose motivation to pet train, and make people spend less money in the Pet Pavilion.

      And also to add, over the last 4 years, KI has added those holiday packs which dropped hats, robes, boots, and wands that had extra energy over the greenwarden and aphrodite gear. We purchased these packs because of the added energy, which in turn saved us from needing to buy more energy elixirs in the long-term. But now, with the increase in time, money, gold, and energy required for pet training, it seems like those added bonuses on the newer energy gear just went null and void. I feel even worse for those people who still use the greenwarden gear and aphrodite wand, they will be hurt even more by these changes.

      I could share my criticisms here or on another platform, but we need to band together as a community to see actual change. No one should be bound to complacency.

      Re: Pets and new things to come

      The added Pet talents, Pet Attacks, reduced in person hatching cost, Pet Happiness and being able to play/quest as your pet are all cool additions that should stay. But the increase hatching cost, increased training costs, increased egg timers and limited Kiosk search need to all be scrapped.

      Making Pet Training harder benefits nobody, and it hurts newer, younger, less experienced, and those without Text Chat even more. The vast majority of the Wiz community is against this update- it would be dreadfully foolish of KingsIsle to not heed our voices.

      Re: Pets and new things to come

      Increasing the kiosk prices was a very bad choice, nevermind the crazy increase in egg timers. Who's brilliant idea was it to mess with the hatchery in the update? If they wanted to update something in the hatchery, let it be the derby. There's still people who play it and want it to be updated. If anything, you guys could've adjusted the team-up kiosk skeleton key tab to keep players from accessing bosses in worlds they can't go to yet. I like the skeleton key tab (and that the starter is required to have a key to start a team up) because I can see all of the skeleton key bosses I can help someone with in one single tab, but there's nothing restricting lower level players from joining higher level bosses that are too difficult for them now. Surely you guys can do a level/world restriction for the skeleton key bosses, similar to Loremaster?

      @Sparck, please get with the others and tell them to scrap this pet hatching update COMPLETELY! No one wants this in exchange for playing as their pet and skipping the games! Increasing the gold prices and making us use more energy to train them is unfair to everyone, new players included! The PERFECT time to make new players keep their interest in the game (especially the younger ones who might fall in love with many of the various pets Wizard101 has to offer, much like I did when I was younger and started playing) only to fail because apparently someone decided to break the hatchery for everyone.

      @Sparck, why can't the effort that was put into "updating" the hatchery be put into making a new world for Pirate101 ? I'll take a side world even for it at this point.

      Re: Pets and new things to come

      The idea of games are to be an enjoyable pastime. Pet training is a major part of this game for most people and we all work very hard at trying to get our "perfect" pet. Even with all the hard work and frustrations, it's still enjoyable and rewarding when you finally get the pet you want.

      I can't see how their proposed changes are going to make anything more enjoyable and enticing for people to want to do it. If anything, it's going to chase people away because of the cost in gold and energy.
