      Re: Hatching can now cost more then 150k! More exp now to level at ancient and higher

      Yea it's outrageous, but allow me to point out something from the last KI Live:
      -Pet Mastery System:
      The point of this system is to do away with failing the Dance Game for pet training. Instead, you will succeed a pet game 25, 50, 100, etc number of times. This system could guarantee you a good pet, but I cannot say for certain. On the stream, they opened the news of this system with 'Are you tired of your pets failing?', so it could be that this system will prevent pet fails. This system would not cross over into Grub Guardian.
      (Summary from JaredSpellFrost)

      I don't think they implemented this in test realm yet, but this it's worth mentioning. If I need to pay 150k for a "perfect pet" on the first hatch, then I'll take that deal.

      But again, I don't think it's been implemented in test yet. Just giving everyone a full picture.

      150K really! That's crazy! It must be a mistake, right?

      How are newer players ever going to get the perfect pet? I've hatched in the past and many were shocked and struggled with 40-50K.

      Re: Hatching can now cost more then 150k! More exp now to level at ancient and higher

      I saw the video from a variety of Wizard101 content creators on YT and my jaw just hit the floor. 150k to 160k for hatching at the kiosk is beyond insane. It's the biggest issue I got now and that's pretty infuriating just to get the first hatch done. Gold is very easy to build up but to pay that high of a price for hatching is ridiculous. Getting a perfect pet on the first hatch sounds too good to be true and have minor concerns, but not as much when breadcrumbs of information were given. I hope I can find out more and the reasoning behind all the changes
      ~~Happy Questing~~

      The new kiosk prices are 3x what they used to be. It's hard enough to get the gold for one hatch as a low lvl player. Trying to get enough gold to hatch with a good pet as a low lvl will be nearly impossible. This change just makes no sense. The kiosk was meant to be a helpful tool for players that couldn't get hatches to begin with via the hatchery. Either because a low lvl player had a pet with bad stats, not enough tc's to bribe the other player to hatch with them, because the pet they were looking for was never around, or it was on cool down.

      KingsIsle - Why would you make pet hatching so hard on a new player. Your entire goal right now, as a company, is the have a better FTUE to bring in (and keep) more players . This kiosk change is the exact opposite of your goal. I understand that you don't want the hatchery building to be a useless space, but this isn't the way to fix that. Use helpful incentives to bring people back to the hatchery sigils, not these coercion tactics.

      Re: Hatching can now cost more then 150k! More exp now to level at ancient and higher

      Pets are already a hassle to make. The kiosk was by far one of my favorite updates, and that update is currently being backtracked.

      I have spent roughly one million gold, and over a month's worth of time, to create a single pet for a single character. ONE pet for ONE character. It is already costly and time consuming. Some people have hatched 30, 40, 50+ times in order to make a singular pet. Is that not costly enough? Is that not time consuming enough?

      I've heard people say that gold is easy to come by (e.g. farming Halfang). However, I find no enjoyment in gold farming. It is tedious, time consuming, and extremely repetitive. They seem to have removed the need to play pet games for these exact reasons, and yet, the tedious and repetitive nature of pet games have simply been shifted elsewhere. Honestly, I wish that they did not touch pet training at all.

      Sure, you can argue that you don't need a "perfect pet". So what? Simply collecting these "perfect pets" (not only the pet body, but stats + talents), constitutes a hobby for me and many other pet hatchers.

      Not only are the hatch prices ridiculous, the egg timers are a complete joke. Blaze LifeHammer just posted a video about it, and the cost to immediately hatch a 24 hour egg without waiting (he used a Rain Core as an example, which is normally five minutes) is almost 290k, putting the total amount of gold on a single hatch without waiting 24 hours, to be around 440k. Character who are level 100 and below can't even get past 400k because that's the gold cap. This is such an embarrassment on KI's part, and major disrespect to the fans, especially new players.

      Leave the pet hatching costs the way they were! We should not be forced to play the dance game because you want us too. We have to if we play any other game for pets, let us have this so were not wasting time hitting arrows when we could do something productive instead. Raising prices is ludicrous as well. I have helped in hatching groups and on my own for years. Most people do not want to learn or cannot figure out even when it is explained clear a day how to make a pet faster and perfect. Your going to make those people pay fortunes and us as well helping them.

      Re: Hatching can now cost more then 150k! More exp now to level at ancient and higher

      Well, I must chime in on this topic.

      After going to test myself and reading what a lot of people have shared. I try to have an open mind on things, but this one just does not make any sense at all.

      You made the kiosk to "help players" because it was too limited for most to find the nice hatchers, like we had here on Central. Were we took out time to make those nice pets to share with you all.

      Now your going to increase the price of hatches in the kiosk to the point that low level people will not have any chance in obtaining the help to make that perfect pet. How does this make any sense at all? What is the reasoning behind this? Why make pet hatching all that harder for so many people? Low levels gold cap is around 250,000. Even having a new base amount for hatching would cost more then half in what they can earn. Limiting to one hatch a day basically and for what, a very basic pet, if they can get that.

      I like to ask some questions here. Sparck, what is the purpose in this big change? Is this going to effect person to person hatching as well or is this based on Kiosk hatching only?

      I honestly, think that the cost of hatching and the energy cost SHOULD NOT be increase! This is not a good move, in my honest opinion. It will end up doing more harm then good. @Sparck please, share this with others over at KI.

      I like to add with the help from @phantomslick7272 that raising a pet went adult to ancient 500 to 525; Epic to Mega went from 2000 to 2125. It's taking us more turns costing us more energy. It's not directly costing us more energy as levels go up, but taking more game playing to raise the pets resulting costing more energy.

      Re: Hatching can now cost more then 150k! More exp now to level at ancient and higher

      So, has the cost to hatch a pet in the pavilion (with another player) gone up to match the price in the kiosk?

      If not, if it is still priced the way it used to be, then this move would seem to be to encourage player to player hatches, the way it used to be before the kiosk came along.

      At least that would make some kind of sense...
