    This is the 2 slot version. All my previous attempts skipped a slot. That is fixed now

    They are mountable. You find them in the Labarynth.

    They have these abilities to start with:

    Their Damage is:

    upload_2017-9-3_23-6-16.png

    You can get 4 resists to 80.

    upload_2017-9-3_23-7-1.png

    The training menu has these choices:

    upload_2017-9-3_23-9-48.png

    The Area Effect abilities are:

    upload_2017-9-3_23-11-0.png

    They do not have Natural poisoning but the poison choices are there.


    The Special Moves are:

    upload_2017-9-3_23-12-32.png

    The magic Abilities are:

    upload_2017-9-3_23-19-49.png

    This one has 1400 Points left:

    upload_2017-9-3_23-25-39.png

    I could choose the abilities and have room for a Magic and scrolls.

    It should make a nice pet.

    I just took it to kill a Paragon Balron. I ran Consume damage the whole time. It needed a couple of cures at the beginning. When the Balron was at half life I had to heal it a few times. It finished it off at the end slowly.
    Its wrestling is at 98. Tactics only 80. It will kill one faster when it has higher skills.

    They are a very good pet.. a tactic that few know of them is that often their stun will last through damging effects in PvM... meaning if you and a friend use one they can effectively stun lock a boss for 4-6 sec at a time.. =^-^=

    That's a nice pet. How is it's native mana regen?

    Sadly it is in the low passive mana regen family but since the buff to them its sustained damage its fairly impressive.. and the stun lock give it tanky nature a nice boost. I used the 700 150 370 stas build on a spell weaving one.. really enjoyed its up time.. =^-^=

    It has a lot of points left. I was going to use poison breath and AI. With no magics.

    But poison breath does not do lethal poison like it says yet.

    Ill keep it in the stable till that's worked out. Or Ill make another and pick AI only and see how that works.

    Just coming back looking at it, I think it would have made a nice pet for this invasion with it's damage profile. I assume poison breath uses less mana than goo?

    I tried it today. Tactics still in the 80s. Worked ok on Generals. But I switched back to my Chiv Lesser for the Titan.

    The best pet I have seen on the Generals is Wolf Spiders. One guy has 5 and you can see the life tick off a general. Another has 2 and a Fire beetle with RC. You can also see them doing damage to the generals.

    They have really low resists and HP but they generals already have a target so they dont take damage.

    Yeah, I had a good success with a fire beetle with RC and AI.

    I had a pack of 5 hand picked and fully trained hounds (from when they were still 1 slot) that I had to let go to make room for new pets. Still regret it.

    I actually tried to give them away. Nobody wanted them. This was right after the taming revamp dropped and everybody was hurting for stable slots. So, yeah, I released them.

    I actually managed to pick up 6 hellhounds off stable merchants across a couple servers after the revamp. Was going to keep the pack and train one. (went around and picked up every legacy animal i could find)

    Kept all my rare colored pred hellcats, but first day screwed up my pride leader by having them slot jump from clicking the training button, luckily i had a spare one same color, but not as good. Still have about 7 additional hellcats on a backup tamer.

    I do a job of constantly juggling pets/stables/stable merchants among myself, guildmates and additional tamers I create to keep all my pets~

    I wonder if these still spawn at 2 slots. I spent some quality time taming them tonight. The worst one I've seen is rated 1.5 and it was still 3 slots.

    Edit: NVM, had to find a REALLY crappy one to make it a 2 slotter.

    Make sure you plan for the last upgrade. They have plenty of points.

    My personal second favorite pet behind Hiryus. I still like my Spellweaving reptalon the best :)

    So, Reptalons do not have access to special abilities like Conductive blast? That is a bit of a bummer.

    No, because they come preloaded with dragon breath.

    When you get to the tail end of a fight and you are dual clienting with a chiv Reptalon or have a friend with one, as Donavon said you para lock most critters and with a little luck the 120 sw WODs start hitting and end the fight fast. Even without specs the chiv gets off nice 200+ hits with EoO. Get 3-4 people with reptalons and it is a guaranteed Para lock fight :)

    So, the trick with Reptalon is to tame a 2 slot one even if the reptalon is poor rated, because you would have more points to spend with the extra slot right?
    I'm confused

    Yes 1500 points would yield 500 points in HP or STR. The 3 slots are not that much higher. You get a better finished product.

    The real trick is finding a reptalon even crappier than a 3 slot :p TBH they all should be 2 slot to start with.

    That I will have to dig through my notes for since the arc started I have been running my chiv hiryus, frost mites and firesteeds and beetles. At 120 they cast as a lvl 6 focus and off the top of my head I want to to in the 450ish-500 range. I did tank on one in brit yesterday but it was on one with a whopping 57SW. I am out of town today and tmrw and I am old school and still keep P&P notes in my desk LOL and pinned to the wall around my desk and scattered all over my desk, and possibly under my desk. I believe @Donavon messed around with SW critters and probably has a better and faster answer than I :)

    The damage from them is pretty nice especially if empower lines up with their word of death aftrer the 36% HP mark.. you easily see hits over 600 .. Sadly my main spell weaving pet was hit by a bug and effectly ruined... =* [

    Does anyone have an impression that Reptalons have a really horrible native mana regen (much worse than average)? I made mine with 30MR, max Int and 1000+ mana, and sumbjectively it seems to do much worse mana wise than either my Cu, or a Bane Dragon either of which have much smaller mana pools.

    True, but Cus have bleed and heal, and they seem to be better off.

    They are bigger mana hogs than CUs by a long shot. Dragon Breath, Para, and magic school. I have built a couple more since we started this conversation and am finding I like a High HP, low mana pool Chiv version the best. Their big selling point for me is the 75Energy 25 poison damage and Para +rideable. Can't get around the dragon breath so may as well go high HP and get the most out of it. EoO, Close Wounds and Cleanse By Fire make the Chiv worthwhile. Yep there are better all around pets and it is debatable which is top. IMO the best is a Chiv Lesser Hiryu, running empowerment when tanking and Berserk when not. Others think the CU is, I just don't see it but to each their own :)

    Finally got my reptalon bonded and trained to 5 slots. This is the result, looks very good. Still need to raise the skills but he begins to shine.

    Need suggestions for my 385 avaiable points:


    max hp:

    Stamina regen at 5, just in case they change something.

    Rest in mana.

    Should be a great pet.

    Take it to the Balron in Chaos. Watch it chomp on a paragon. Great fun.

    Thank you :)

    Yeah, when I put some 120 scrolls on my reptalon I feel bad because I thought is a ''Worse Cu Sidhe'' he doesn't deserve it and I would waste a lot of money, but after I tested him he is really good. With consume damage He soloed Navrey, Paragon Balron and a Paragon Greater dragon without any bandages or healing and his health always at 90%-100% range. His stun is super-useful and helped me to survive when a paragon monster(super fast) targeted me.
    I'm very happy with him

    Some people tend to get stuck on a few animal types and just think anything else sucks. There are alot of fun and useful animals and skill combinations.
