    so, there i was last night in the twisted weld taming some cu's with a stealth tamer that i have, and i got thinking to myself..... what a shame it is that there are no pets that stealth.

    cause what good is a stealth tamer if your pet is just trolling around behind you with its tounge lolling out of its mouth, cause everyone will know where you are.

    then i got thinking.... but what kinda pet would be able to stealth....

    then it came to me!

    RAPTORS!!!!

    those little buggers all ready (kinda) stealth!!!

    now THAT is what my stealth tamer needs.
    a pair of those, and they burrow along underground (stealth)
    and when i pop out of hiding and give the order to kill they unearth themselves and attack.

    oh man, would that be so much fun!

    hanging out at yew moongate in fel.
    just chill-axilating, sitting on one of the stones that is there.
    picking your nails with a sliver of wood.

    someone comes up and starts harassing ya
    POW!
    out come the raptors from hiding.

    *sigh*

    I admit that would be very cool.

    But can you hear the screams? :)

    You would end up with stealth raptors, but the nerf would make it so that you would have raptors with no teeth. Raptors would have to gum their opponents to death!!! Or try to strangle them with those tiny arms. LOL

    Awesome idea! Wolves would also be a good pet to give hiding and stealth to. Code so that if the tamer hides, the pets do as well. I'm sure there are other pets it would be cool to give that ability to where it wouldn't be op. :)

    You can already tell the critter to stay and invis him....

    Funny to do this with a greater dragon, but most people are used to that trick by now.
     
  6. Dont you have pet-balls. Stealth all you want and summon when ready.

    Using a pet ball reveals your char plus it can be interrupted.

    I would drop other skills just to put hiding/stealth on my tamer if this were possible. Sounds like a ton and a half of fun.

    I hate the amount of pain it would cause me and other pvper but think it is hilarious and would be fun. it would force players to be more active in balanced templates with things like detect hidden or tracking. People fight in parties but rarely include a team member that is balanced for that side of team support. interesting.

    nope, what you want is trapdoor spiders, with that eerie rattling sound that lets you know they're nearby..........somewhere.

    And lets be honest, even a pack of 4xgm wolves arent exactly hard to kill...nor do they do huge amounts of damage.

    Raptors, may be a little OP'd but then again, probably not


    Like the idea!

    It would be awesome if I could do that with the vollems attached to my thief. :lol: Major lawls at yew gate and star room...

    I can see it working well for pvm too, if you needed to get your pet out of trouble.
     
  14. Trapdoor spiders stealth but I don't know if you can tame them.

    Just do as Poo says. Make raptors stealth.... BUT!!!

    They would be rare-ish. Not all raptors would have stealth. And, the one's that stealth take 5 control slots.

    Seems balanced /shrug

    No, you can't currently tame trapdoor spiders, on the other hand raptors can't currently stealth either. :) While I think it's a fun idea to contemplate I'm afraid the reality would be somewhat different.

    How would you see this working in the hands of someone who's idea of fun is to ruin as many other people's fun as he possibly can?

    If it was a 5 control slot creature, how is it any different than a player who has stealth and archery? :)

    Well, there's the Kepetch Ambushers too...

    Two or three snakes popping out of the woodwork would be very upsetting to some people.

    Trap door Spiders! awesome...... I would love that..... too bad they can't be tamed... I already tried I wanted one from the start.... Still want to tame the other spiders in game too.... Dread Spiders, Black Widows..... all should be tamable..... 3 slots I'm thinking..... Dread spider and a Wolf Spider..... that would be cool.

    How about making the hinds and Great Hearts stealth, but when they are on any road they freeze right in the middle of it.
