Back when I didn't "know" a potential pet's exact stats! Back when, if you tamed it, it was a keeper. Pet training wasn't important either, especially before Bonding. Tame it, use it, it dies, it's gone forever...move on. Today taming is so much more difficult because we "know" our pet's most intimate secrets! This Cu has 77 Cold Resist while this Cu has 84 Cold Resist. I really think I prefer the old days of not knowing the stat/skill/resist details, no pet bonding and unlimited pet usage (no pet slots). It was a freer, easier time. Not so formulaic and we had a very lively pet-for-sale market. Remember when Brit Bank had many tamers with many pets for sale? Good times! Nostalgia!
