    What pet would you like? A beastmaster survey!

    Howdy!

    After talking to the development team, it seems like they are down to add a familiar from the below list to go along with the level cap increase to 99. (This is separate from the pets they are already planning to add!)

    We’d like to hear from all of you which one you’d like to see implemented

    • Chloris (Mandragora)
    • Colibri
    • Orapodium (Mandragora)
    • Hippogryph
    • Chigoe
    • Karkinos (Crab)
    • Scolopendrid (Scorpion)
    • Toad
    • Red crab
    • Orobon
    • Hecteyes
    • Pachypodium (Mandragora)
    • Scorpion
    • Crawler
    • Funguar (Different color)
    • Rafflesia
    • Slime
    • Karakul
    • Black antlion
    • Hanuman (Opo-opo)
    • Black beetle
    • Ruszor


    In regards to monsters not listed above, there are many which would take a bit of time to implement, so it seems difficult to get them in right away.

    For example, large monsters rumble the ground when they walk, so there would be a need to address those kinds of things.

    Since of course Behemoth and the four gods are quite popular, as we mentioned in the job concepts briefly, we would like to look into implementing these as a special type of pet similar to the avatars Odin/Alexander.

    Also, similar to Flans, the back story is pretty complicated (※) so we would need to make adjustments to make it fit the story.


    ■Other feedback

    Make the HQ familiars NMs or have different graphics.
    If you are good with that we will look into it, but are you okay with not adding brand-new familiars?
    Would like smaller size pets of large monsters.
    We would like to do this.

    Add jugs that call a random pet each time.
    We tried looking into revamping the system, but since the amount of work is on par with completely reworking the Call Beast system, making this happen seems to be quite difficult. It’s something we would like to do, but we apologize we can’t do this!

    Add pets that can only be called while equipping Guttler.
    I like this idea and believe we can do it, so we will look into it!


    ※Some of you may have caught on to this when seeing the blue mage artifact quest “Omens” or even for the job introduction text, but Flans are essentially test subjects that could not become blue mages. There are some methods for avoiding this like saying that they were man-made Flans based on the original, so surely we can make something happen.

    I hope they don't do the Guttler idea, only 1% of Bst that play have the relic weapon and it would be a waste of time because the Bst community wouldn't be able to use it.

    I think u mean u want a dragon and i said that on game. So yes I vote for a dragon, not a wyvern, a dragon..... and let me see... would be nice to have a Chigo on my side for a change and I think the frogs are cute, reminds me of Cal /cry... Even tho he killed me I knew he was really a prince. Oh yea and tell them I want a leopard, I look good in animal print.... oh and want a lion or a tiger too at high level, not a black tiger either want the pretty strips. I know its not on list!!! idc!!
