I've been messing around with the changeling dog and I noticed some interesting things: It can only be lored when it's not in human form, but anything else is ok. Its resists seem to change depending on what form it takes, making me think that a way for it to have high resists is possible. Also when it is in human form it uses whatever weapon it’s wielding. I've noticed he can even parry with a shield. I'm wondering if it can develop skills not shown on the animal lore scroll like monsters with necromancy or weaving. Perhaps any skill used could be gained? A gm swords and parry dog would be loads of fun. I don't think animals have a 700 skill cap. Although when he copies humans he gets junk resist armor. It seems to take my form more than anything else. I carried the redeemer and he gets a paladin sword when he copies me. Does about 30-35 damage and not even trained in anatomy or tactics with low str. Has anyone else done anything interesting with the dog other than making him turn into crazy things? On the negative side I seem to be unable to feed it, even right out of the stables when it's still in dog form. Its loyalty is now less than wonderfully happy. I'm wondering if its loyalty gets too low will I lose it with no hope of re-bonding it? Will it even be re-tamable? If anyone knows a way to feed it or bring its loyalty up that would be appreciated. If not I think this is an issue considering how much people like this pet and how difficult it is to obtain.
