I like that we are getting the first patch of pets this quickly ,and it really makes me happy ,but I play zerker ,and the only pet that's close to being useful for my build is the Braghin Chieftain ,duo to the physical defense he gives me since i already have crzy dps ,and he is heroic ,meaning i will probably have to spend about 200 elluns before getting him.

    Honestly, for casters we for the most part will continue using our spider since its so good to pass up. Guardians will eat up the chieftain since it will activate god mode. I don't think the new pets are kinda useless. It all depends on the players really.

    You may think they are kinda useless and others not so much. But, yeah RNG is going to be mean today.

    Pets need free slots in your mount inventory right?

    Yeah some people may see me picking Braghin Chieftain as a perfect for zerker is good ,No it's not ,it's just good for my set of gear XD
    and Yeah ,i am personally keeping as much elluns as possible ,because i want to get that +20 new tear of weapons in the next patch .

    I though of picking him first (lol talking like i can actually buy him ) ,but the chieftain gives me 27% physical defense increase when he reaches level 25 (which is easy) ,and that equals about 400 ,So he is a better fit for me.

    Pretty good box for zerks i would say.... 2x 25% STR 1x 25% physical atk in it, 3/10 useful. Mage is 1/10 :)

    But yea, none are really a huge advantage over what is available to tame in-game.... for a silly rng box, people will probably just go for them for cosmetic reasons.

    It's funny cause some elite pets in the next areas give better stats than all of the RNG pets.

    I'm just curious if "Nullifies all conditions of all regions" stat will be required in future content.

    Being on a pet... i think this is more for the spider webs / ice patch slow effects.

    Flying mounts later on get effected by weather... making them slower, less energy and fly much lower than max.

    Welp, 13 boxes and i got the Heroic Chieftain.
    Yes, i fed 64AUD into KKs for some Elluns to do that along with my stack of Elluns i had previously.

    I think they need to adjust the chances across the board though. In 13 boxes i ended up with:
    1x Fairy
    1x Hunter
    1x Heroic Chieftain
    2x Raider
    5x Fighter
    3x Ryno Guard

    Seems like the chance to get a Fighter might be a touch higher than the other ones, which could be a bad thing as I'm fairly sure its pretty much worthless to magic classes. Though i guess maybe you could just seal and sell them.

    I was kinda hoping it'd be an even chance for the different Elites, would suck if they made one of them more common than the others.

    That sounds a lot like a bug more than intentional design.

    thats not your base stats, remove all your items and see your strength, then its increase by the %.

    base stat is without your gear for example my sin 25 lvl base str 59 with pet is 74 so I just +15 str. with gear or without it still will be +15 str

    OO ,i thought it's your strength not the base strength or stat ,because that's what it actually says (25% strength increase).

    So nice of them to give us Elite pets with the Founder Pack and Heroic pets in their cash shop RNG boxes. I really appreciate it!

    Just waiting for them to add the RNG cash shop boxes with heroic/legendary mounts now.

    @Kaiarra
    People are gonna gamble their money on these Luck Boxes to get Legendary mounts :))) how stupid ! Dragon's Prophet is far from a F2P game but at least you know that if you are gonna buy a specific dragon from the in-game marketplace or web store you are going to get it.But these Luck Boxes are a scam, it's not enough that people will probably pay quite some money to get Legendary mounts but now they won't be even sure if they will get it !? LOL
