Stable Slots...

Discussion in 'UO Tamer' started by Devils keeper, Dec 14, 2008.

  1. It dont seem right that a 5 slot Greater dragon should take up as much stable room as a 1 slot scorpion.

    Perhaps stable slots should be control slot dependant. Maybe something like with 100 tame 100 lore 100 vet you could stable 7 greater dragons or 35 one slot pets or any combination.

    This would allow lower level tamers to stable a pack or 2 of pets And allow higher lev tamers the option of having a pack or 2 on hand instead of filling up on uber powerful pets.

    As it is now somone with 70 tame 70 lore 70 vet can hardly evan stable one pack :(

    This is actually a really good idea.

    Frankly I would be happy if they just increased the base pet stable to 10 instead of 2 and then add the additional tamer slots on those. Hell I would be happy if they just increased the stables at this point

    Honestly, any increase would be appreciated here too. Stable slots drive me crazy on a regular basis.

    I was just wondering the other day why that the +25% storage increase I purchased for my accounts did not net me any increase in stable slots.

    Winner!


    Yeah, they should at least up the base stable slots to 5 at a minimum. 6 would be an even better minimum. My miner/lumberjack could then switch out his fire beetle with 5 pack horses for the wood. It's not like pet horders can have them all out at once or that stable slots are a balance issue. I personally wouldn't care if they put in an across the board stable amount. 20 or 25 slots per char. That leaves plenty of room for packs and everything.

    I would like to have a pack of ostards or hell hounds or something for fun.

    I however cannot because I would have to dump pets to make room.

    I only have one of each type of pet but I like variety so with a mare, g dragon, cu, bake, beetle, hiryu ect ect. I have a variety of hunting options, but could never fit a pack of animals with instincts.
     
  8. EXACTLY!
    my stables are the same.

    Thats why I have two tamers, with very few common pets between them, so one can have a pack of frenzies. It works well, but it's a pain having to work up another tamer lol.
     
  10. I am just grateful that the stables don't randomly delete your pets anymore.

    True that Morgana!, Yes we do need more stable slots. Im an RP'er so i used low end pets for RP PvP, so i have a pack of 5 hellcats and 2 giant ice worms taking up alot of my stable slots. So i only have room for a limited amount of pets to go hunting with. Theres a few other pets i want but just don't have to room :(.

    Hrmmm mixing up on Devils idea. I think that animals should be catergorized into 3 sizes, Small, medium and Large and then a certain amount of stable slots given for each type.
    Small animals = 1 Control slot
    Medium animals = 2-3 Control slots
    Large animals = 4-5 Control slots.

    Stable space:
    15 stable slots for small animals
    8 or 10 stable slots for medium animals
    4 stable slots for large animals
