Pets? How about golems? (in General)

Abit April 23 2006 3:56 PM EDT

I like this idea but would like to expand upon it for the sake of realism. What pet would eat an Adam? I think it should be a golem, your mage could enhance him by destroying an Adam to strengthen its skin. Or likewise destroy an MH to give him a natural VA or so his base hits are harder. Of course this would cost cash and maybe exp or temporarily put the mage out of commission due to over-exertion...

I had a superb idea just now!

Instead of a tattoo, give teams the option of having a pet instead. This pet would not have any networth, nor would it be tradeable - it would simply act as another tank minion. However, you could feed it weapons and armor to increase its own natural STR/DX/AC/HP. For example, feed it a couple Adams and it is a high HP high Defense wall type guy. Feed it a couple BoNEs and watch its strength soar!! It would be another cash sink, and would provide a whole new dimension to strategy.

Yay pets!

@ dudley: why dont you sell 1.5 mil that should be enough to cover for guardianship.

the golem idea wont be liked by many, i do think it is a waste and people do not want to give up there tattoo for a tank and much more, people would most probably be better off with a tattoo unless you have a lot of money to put in your golem, but then you could always just buy a bigger tattoo.

i just dont see a golem being better than a tattoo

A use for all those spare Tulwars?!

I think it's an awesome idea :D

some extremely rich players might be unbeatable for a while, but maybe it could have to conform to some kind of max tattoo limit.

Just think it would be cool to see 'Strongest Pet' listed in the stats page.

Definitely affect (effect?) the economy and amount of items in stores.

YNM, The golem idea is certainly more like the Diablo 2 "Iron Golem" where it takes the properties of the item whereas the pet idea can be taken from many RPG's that I have seen.

Just name your tat "Fido" and be done with it.

LOL Vestax, I doubt it, if something like this was implemented, you could be sure Tulwars gave the golem next to nothing! ;)
