[Gardening] BAH! (a warning to anyone that uses beetles)

    I just logged in for the day and my beetle had gone wild and was attacking me, (I WAS sitting on it when I logged out, I am certain! I am OC about checking these things! =P) and I lost about 100 plants. Including all the coloured seeds I was trying out to see if we got coloured new plants.

    I'm bummed about the plants, but I guess I just go collect more seeds and start again =)

    May I just say - bugger, bugger, bugger! Even moreso cos it's my own fault for not making a point of feeding the bug everyday - now I gotta wait a week for him to bond again =P

    Ouch! Sorry you lost your plants. That's one of the reasons I don't use a beetle for plants. I had one go wild a few months ago. It was bonded and I had fed it recently. Next thing I know it's attacking me.

    look at it from the beetles point

    if I had a cypress tree pop up out my butt I'd be made too.

    LOL! You may have a very valid point! ;)

    And thanks all! Sympathy always much appreciated when you do something so very stupid! ;)

    My low skill gardener cant keep a bonded beetle or pack animal longer than two days. Luckily mine were lost and I quit using them before the new plants.

    Today my gardner was killed by a dire wolf and reaper while trying to fill his water pitcher...

    I am glad reapers dont pop in houses anymore!
     
  8. Mmm. I haven't noticed such a thing on any of my characters. I've been using a beetle since the plants came out and haven't had a problem yet. But thanks for the notice. I'll be sure to keep an eye out for such an event.

    I've used a bettle on my crafters and gardener for YEARS I've only rarely had it go wild..... once or twice cause I accidently released it.

    I feed them from time to time.....

    I'll say one thing..... since the new patch my pet doesn't keep telling me that he doesn't think he should follow me anymore....
