    I'd like an item to use on my pets that increases their HP, Resists, and Skill Values. You could use it on a pet, then select what attribute you would like to have increased.

    Please post some ideas on how much you would like an attribute to go up after using the item.

    I personally think we ought to be able to use powerscrolls on our pets. Always thought more pets should get armor also. Horses, Dragons, I could see being able to put Jewelry on your pet. Necklace, ring braclets....

    Scooby Snacks. +10% to all stats for 1 hour. Works only on Canines. Made with Cooking Skill: 1 Cut of Raw Ribs, 1 Flour, 1 Entire sack of Sugar, 1 Painting recovered from a shipwreck. (What can I say. I have had way to many dogs in my life.) Makes Canines 150% less likely to obey commands.


    Actually, I'd just like it if you could get Swamp Dragon's to drink healing potions.

    ...And I'd like some of kind item or consumable that gives me the stats of a greater dragon. Fair's fair, right? That really would be a "tasty treat" for my warrior.

    Dear Broadsword,

    My maxed out Greater Dragon just isn't powerful enough. Please make it even more over powered for me.

    Thanks

    You forgot to add that we deserve the buff because of the hours spent taming bulls.

    I don't think that most dragons would be able to use powerscrolls as most of them are 120 or better in some skills .... so you couldn't improve them.

    Pink scrolls for pets! Training magery on a pet with 136 mana takes FOREVER.

    Eros, my old dog used to sneak catbox treats all the time. I'd be napping on the couch and she'd come and drop a turd on my chest! At least she was good at sharing..

    Ugh.... that's disturbing. Another reason why I don't like dogs... they are **** eatters. Disgusting. You don't see cat's going around grabbing a loaf of dog turd.

    While I disagree with many of the suggestions personally, I'm pretty excited to hear more about the Pet Rework the devs are currently working on. I'd like my unicorn/ww combo to be useful again.

    Sounds great but you should have to insure them, else pet or players killing your pet should be able to loot them loot them.

    I'm not totally against the idea. But balance is tricky. You make one segment of the game uber, then it's 2 seconds till every other class wants a bump up too. PvP already has big pet peeves with tamers.

    i could see scrolls / treats being an easy fix to oudated pets. i would not allow them to be used on modern pets like greater dragons or dreadmares. remember, these were not even supposed to be tamebale. if you dont believe me, ask kyronix :)

    Oh I agree about the Jewelery.... They should have to be Insured.... and on Siege of course your pet can't insure them and wouldn't get a "personal bless deed" so yeah they ought to be stealable/lootable.... as far as Jewels go.
