Companion Pet Battling System

  • #1
    You can capture wild pets, you can use your current ones, you level them, teach them abilities, even special master ones and have pet battles. There are pets you can only find when conditions are right, and in certain zones. So potentially you could find a pet only when it's raining at night in Elwynn forest.

    Personally I love the idea.

    How do you all feel about this?

    Anything aside from raiding and PvP I can do end game is a welcome addition for me.

    This is why I quit WoW long ago. Literally everything implemented after BC was a distraction from the facts. PvE endgame is egregiously time-consuming and ultimately frustrating or boring. PvP endgame is a stilted crap-shoot that simply cannot be balanced.

    Call me pessimistic, but I don't think pet battles are going to change that.

    I don't think it'll change that but I think it's something to do besides those two choices.

    I actually don't think this will ever make it to live realms, kind of like the dance studio was talked up and fizzled (but is supposedly making a comeback!).

    I mean honestly, this is a direct clone of the Pokemon battle system in every way. I'm sure when more details come out, there will be elements, or creature types, which represent bonuses or resistances and that as they grow stronger they grow and become new elite pets etc etc. It's just ridiculous, honestly, and I almost find it offensive. This system has been the nail in my WoW coffin, that they would even consider this, regardless of whether it is implemented.

    The dance studio I'm pretty sure was a joke. What would even be the point, all dances are the same basically.

    I for one like Pokemon, so this new system is pretty cool. You can already see in screenshots that the pets have types, like mechanical, flying, etc, as well as the skills.

    No, actually the dance studio will be a huge feature, but it won't be complete any time soon.

    Also Dae, photobucket is like the worst image site.

    Yeah I should probably reupload them here. When making large img posts though photobucket is easier I only have to change 1 letter on each img tag so i just copy/paste.

    There fixed links.
