Best Pets Forever

RSS
Godville, Jul 23 2012

There are sayings among Godville gods that sometimes pets can be even more interesting than the heroes themselves. Therefore, having a pet suddenly die or get replaced could be an unpleasant experience, which is not something that we want. So let’s make it better!

First of all, pets will no longer die. From now on, when a pet saves the life of his master, he won’t die as he would have before. Instead he’ll just be knocked unconscious. The hero can then heal him within 60 hours (same rules as before), but even if he fails to do so, the pet won’t be lost. He will come back to his senses on his own, but this time as a more cautious and down-to-earth animal. An animal that doesn’t care about levels, pantheon competition, battle nicknames and has no desire to sacrifice his life, preferring just to simply be with his master.

In other words:

  • if all you wanted was to see your hero with a friendly companion, you can now forget about the burden of resurrection and just enjoy the game! The pet will stay with his hero forever.
  • if for some reason you care about pet levels and pantheon position – nothing changes (except the terminology and new UI feature showing the time left for pet healing).
  • if you want to get rid of a levelless pet, read ahead: once in awhile, your hero will take a quest to bring his companion to a vet for a routine checkup. If you cancel this quest, the hero will set the pet free.

Other news:

  • for those playing in a web browser – check out the greetings on the top left area of the page. There might be something interesting up there!
  • the most recent iPhone app update has a shiny new feature that should make influencing more convenient. Make sure to install it.
  • recent advancements in heroic brain science have finally taught the heroes to turn profit on the old stuff left after an equipment upgrade. It’s never too late to make heroes smarter, right?

UPD: There are no changes for pet medals – they are given upon reaching level 30. As with all other achievements, once it’s given it can be never taken away.

Btw, we’re accepting submissions for new monsters, that can be tamed. Post it right here, in comments (one pre-condition: they must be chosen from the monsters that already in the game).

I guess having a Feral Hero as a pet doesn’t have to be creepy, so – yes. Also Battle Hamster.

Does this mean that you get to go on an epic quest if your pet is knocked unconscious?

Questions for everyone:

1. Does the “pet” section on the “hero” page or browser section say “status: unconscious” or similar? I got the following last night: The Insufferable Boar raised its hand for a deadly final strike, but suddenly Baloo flung himself at the monster’s feet. The monster stumbled and fell dead on the ground, breaking its neck. Good job, Baloo! You’ve saved my life!" But there is no indication anywhere that he is injured or needs reviving.

2. After the revival period expires, do the pets still let you ride them, destroy items, or heal the hero?

Thanks.

Well I certainly hate to sound ungrateful but you could have done that 2 days before my level 17 pet DIED! I had already ressurected him once. Ugh!

I would love to see Lightsaber-Toothed Tigers, Hypnotoads, Tiger Lilies and Undead Garden Gnomes as pets.

I think its kinda lame. I enjoyed trying to get a pet to a high level . I never got past 18 but it was a goal I tried to accomplish. Must be to many winers

How do you tell whether the pet is in ‘zombiefied’ state?
