    First off you take one pet, in ghost form, then you use some special item or method, target a different pet the ghost goes poof, and the "soul" of the ghost pet goes into the body of the targeted pet.

    Basically, the targeted pet gains all of the stats, skills, control slots, of the old pet, plus a (transmigrated) tag so people don't get tricked. Mountable pets can transmigrate to any other type, but mountable targets can only "accept" the soul of a mountable pet. That way no mountable greater dragons.

    A simple way to add variety to pets, and lose none of the function. That way we could have "greater" white wyrms, Dread Walrus', Doom chickens... whatever. May have to limit it to pets of a certain size, because a sparrow sized greater dragon might be an issue.

    Technically, who knows how feasible, but it would be a nice idea anyway. Just an idea.

    Can we not further complicate an already bamboozling game?

    What is complicated about this idea? It's just changing pet skins, and it would be completely optional.

    because how would you know immediately what slayer to use in pvp when someone sets a pet on you without having to press all names and find the text among all the other things going on and read what the pet is...

    I mean, imagine you're in despise surrounded by ratmen and someone has put their bane dragon spirit in a ratman and called it a ratman.

    I think my brain will melt through my nose.

    You can't tame a ratman, thus you couldn't transmigrate into it. I would imagine slayer would work for whatever it body it had.

    Do many tamers pvp? I honestly don't know.

    Finally, wtf is with the new text formatting? I really hate it.

    I like... It'd be cool to make Necromancy required. Just for Flavor. LOL But not necessary.

    Such lovely and sadly underutilized creatures
