    Caveat Emptor and I were have a little chat over the Spinx Statue Mesanna provided a player in exchange for the Spinx he happened to tame at an EM Event and we thought

    Hey!

    How about a Pet Statue Maker? Where you could create a statue of your favorite Bonded pet.

    I could see a "Pet Statue Maker" as a super popular vet reward. Imagine the poses just like a character.

    Your Dread mare all four feet on the ground, One foot up, or reared ready to ride off in the sunset.

    Ok comments and opinions please place below!!

    Sounds good to me! I'd love to be able to have a statue of my white dragon. There may be pets that are stronger, but he's always been my favorite to use... even if it means I'm at a disadvantage

    Great idea you two.

    Function > Form

    If it doesnt DO anything then its lamesauce, but this is the opinion of a non rares collector PvPer.. I havent picked a single vet reward that just looks pretty. Give us stuff with BOTH form & function.

    That sphinx was at rares fest on hokuto and it was very cool, even in 2d. Now i think this would be a cool idea, although i would like to add one suggestion. Let the colors be random and such that all statues are not the same colors, i.e. our current marble statue makers etc. That would be pretty neat.

    in heinsight, I am a pk in this game, i would love more ideas for felluca, however this idea is different and very conceivable.:)

    = p

    I think RIP Fido statues are creepy IRL.... even more so if the pet is still around. In a video game.......

    Only if it is a 1st yr vet reward.
    They really need to come up with a Vet Reward Turn-In Point Program (2 to 1 ratio) esp. with all the IDOCs we have had.

    Can anyone else just picture SixUnder saying "Here kitty kitty kitty" in that super deep (Ive got some candy for you little girl ) voice. Anyway...thought made me crack up.

    well, i have some dragons that have almost 950 str that are before aos, and like 5 dreads that are unreal.. personally i think 3 statues with dreads breathing fire would look bad ass.

    Sounds fine. I'd rather be able to turn a pet into a display pet at your house, like the theme pack, so you could have a pet dog or cat. :)

    Love the idea!

    However instead of making it a vet reward, why not just add it into the masonry skill for carpentry? That way we could extend it beyond just pets and make statues of any creature, monster or player. The process could be in two phases, first phase the carpenter could "sketch" the creature or player they want to be made into a statue (or maybe just the carpenter . Second phase, the carpenter then crafts the statue based off of that sketch.

    However I would definitely want the colors to be maintained in the statue.

    personally I wouldn't mind a mini-model of my home that I customized in the game. After all you can only own one home at a time per account. So whos to say you won't just recustomize that home several times over the years just to get a different "feel" for it. Having a small model of what you customized would mean you could keep that with you always and be a little reminder of what you created and once had.

    I love this idea! I have had my llama, Fuzzy, for many years! He stays mostly in the stable now but every now and then I take him out and let him walk with me when I am escorting lost people around the lands. I would love to have a statue of him too!

    Great idea Lord Nabin! :)

    I always wanted to do that as well as be able to make "deeds" of my designs that I could sell on a vendor and have folk just buy a deed of a design and the deed would say something like "A custom House design by XXX for an 18x18"..... and I could use the deed to make a mini of my house to put by the vendor to show the design. Then the person buying the deed would go to the custom tab and in the choices they could put a "Use custom house deed" choice and then they choose that a target cursor would come up they target the deed and then enter custom mode and it loads that saved design as though it were their own back-up design. Then all they have to do is hit commit and viola...... They have a fully designed house without having to design it themselves and it's all ready to deco. This would also make moving your house 100X easier. If you wanted to move to another shard and wanted to replace your house think of the ease with something like this.

    I think making mini-house models would also be an awesome to add to the ideas here. Think it would be fun building mini-houses :)

    wouldn't that require the art team to miniaturize every tile set ever? I mean, it would be fun, but it would take months for EA to finish something like that, I'd imagine. for the time being, take a screen shot ;P.

    How big would the actual statue be? I have made a milecastle type of plot and I think a couple of pet statues of tamable eagles would be perfect right next to the entrance if they are large enough.

    Good to see all the positive comments on this thread.

    I hope that the Dev's can work it in somehow. I know there are a lot of players out there who love their pets.

    I also bet there are a lot of Deco specialists out there that would go nuts with these :) You could build your own Zoo!

    hmm... a statue of my pooka? but it is an ethreal... is a cool idea for tamers but for us pure warrior/mage types who run amok on pookas *shrug* I dunno.

    Would be cool to make it a 1x use statue tool.. so you could make a statue of any creature in the game to be 1/3 its normal size which would be deeded, but cannot be made into another creature - kinda like the taxidermy kit but can be used on any one creature you kill... yeah... that's the ticket!

    soooo... I'll be making an AW statue to practice on... hehe!
    yeppers, that would get me to stay--- er... return. ;)
